Hey there friends!

It’s been awhile since I created a video tutorial, so I thought it would be fun to show you how I created these two card using products from Stampin’ Up!’s Beautiful Autumn Suite.

First off, let’s take a closer look at the two cards.

These two cards use my favourite pattern from the Gilded Autumn DSP collection – the Mint Macaron pattern with the gold foil stripes. Although honestly, all the patterns in this collection are gorgeous.

Step by Step Written Tutorial | Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Cards

Here’s a step-by-step written tutorial for those of you who don’t have time to watch the videos.

Prep for Cards 1 & 2

Step 1. Stamp the acorn image twice onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla CS twice using Early Espresso Classic ink. Color the bottom of the acorn with Light and Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends. Color the top of the acorn with Light and Dark Cinnamon Cider. For each section I started with a layer of the light color. I added the dark color along the edges. I then blended the edges of the dark color using the light color. Finally, I went back and added a little more shading with the dark color. Punch out the acorns with the coordinating punch.

Step 2. Stamp the aak Leaf image three times onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla CS twice using Early Espresso Classic ink.  Color with Stampin’ Blends. I started by colouring the entire image in Light Cajun Craze. I added a little Dark Cajun Craze at the bottom and up the center. Punch out the oak leaves with the coordinating punch.

Step 3. Stamp the maple leaf image five times onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla CS using Mint Macaron Classic ink. Color the leaves with a layer of Light Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend. Punch out the maple leaves with the coordinating punch.

Step 4. Stamp the wheat stalk image three times onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla CS using Early Espresso Classic ink. Color in two of the wheat stalks with the bullet tip of an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker. Color the other wheat stalk with the Light Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blend. Fussy cut the wheat stalks, leaving a slight border around the image.

Step 5. Stamp the three-leaf image three times onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla CS using Early Espresso Classic ink. Color all the leaves with a layer of Light Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend. Add Dark Cajun Craze along the bottom and right edge of each leaf. Blend the edge of the Dark Cajun Craze with Light Cajun Craze. Fussy cut the leaves leaving a slight border around the image.

Card 1 | Life is Better

 Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn | Life is Better CardStep 1. Stamp the “Life is Better” greeting onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla CS in Early Espresso Classic ink. Fussy cut the image leaving a slight border around the greeting.

Step 2. Using the second from the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes dies, and your die cutting machine, die cut a circle out of the splattered Crumb Cake DSP. Die cut a second circle out of Cajun Craze CS. The circles are 2 ⅜” in diameter.

Step 3. Center and stick the left edge of the 2″ x 5 ½”  piece of Mint Macaron DSP over top of the ¾” x 4 ¼” strip of Cajun Craze CS. You want the Cajun Craze CS to extend about ⅛” beyond the left edge of the Mint Macaron DSP.

Step 4. Stick the DSP/CS piece to the front of a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” Very Vanilla notecard.

Step 5. Stick the Crumb Cake DSP circle to the Cajun Craze CS circle, so that the Cajun Craze CS circle is slightly offset to the bottom right of the Crumb Cake Circle. Stick the layered circles to the notecard, over top of the DSP. The top of the circle is about 1″ down from the top edge of the card, and the left side of the circle is about ½” from the left edge of the card.

Step 6. Stick the 3 ½” piece of ribbon across the center of the circle using double-sided adhesive. The left edge of the ribbon should be aligned with the left edge of the card.

Step 7. Place Stampin’  Dimensionals at the back of the fussy cut greeting and lightly stick it over top of the ribbon so that it is about ⅛” below the top edge of the ribbon and ⅛” away from the right edge of the ribbon.

Step 8. Arrange the various leaves and the wheat stalks to the left of the greeting, using liquid glue and/or mini glue dots so that the bottom of each is pointed inwards.

Step 9. Using a Stampin’ Dimensional Stick the acorn over top of the center area where the ends of the foliage meet. The acorn should slightly tuck under the left edge of the greeting.

Step 10. Embellish with a few gold metallic pearls. You’re done!

Card 2 | Hey There

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn | Hey There CardStep 1. Stamp the greeting at the bottom right of a rectangular scrap of Very Vanilla CS. Trim the greeting into a sentiment strip using a paper cutter. Set aside.

Step 2. Center and stick the left edge of the 2 ½” x 4″  piece of Mint Macaron DSP over top of the ¾” x 3 ¾” strip of Cajun Craze CS. You want the Cajun Craze CS to extend about ⅛” beyond the edge of the Mint Macaron DSP.

Step 3. Center and stick the left edge of the 2″ x 4 ¼”  piece of Crumb Cake DSP over top of the ¾” x 3 ¾” strip of Cajun Craze CS. You want the Cajun Craze CS to extend about ⅛” beyond the edge of the Crumb Cake DSP.

Step 4. Center and stick the Mint Macaron/Cajun Craze piece to the front of the 4 ¼” x 5 ½” Very Vanilla notecard. You want the Cajun Craze CS border to be at the top. The top edge of the Mint Macaron DSP should be about 1″ below the top edge of the card.

Step 5. Stick the Crumb Cake/Cajun Craze piece to your notecard, so that it is centered on the Mint Macaron DSP piece. The Cajun Craze CS piece border should be at the bottom.

Step 6. Stick the 3 ¼”  piece of ribbon to the Crumb Cake DSP using double-sided adhesive. The left edge of the ribbon should be about ⅛” away from the left edge of the DSP and the bottom edge of the ribbon should be about ⅛” away from the bottom edge of the DSP.

Step 7. Stick the gold hoop embellishment onto your notecard. It should be positioned about 1/2″ away from the left edge of the notecard, and centered between the top and bottom edges of the Mint Macaron DSP. To hold it in place, I sandwiched it between two sets of mini glue dots. The first mini glue dot “sandwich” was postitioned on the right where it overlapped with the ribbon. At about the ribbon center point. The second mini mini glue dot “sandwich” was postitioned on the left where it overlapped the ribbon, just below the center point of the ribbon.

Step 8. Stick the “hey there” greeting as shown in the picture using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Step 9. Stick the foliage as shown in the picture above using mini glue dots and/or liquid glue.

Step 10. Stick the acorn to the left of the greeting, slightly overlapping the edge of the greeting, using a Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Step 11. Embellish with metallic gold pearls. You’re done!
