Magnificent Maple – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #629

Hey There,

Having my new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog in hand inspired me to stamp this card with an Autumn flavor.  I love using Gold and Silver in my Autumn creations so I put those colors up front an center in this creation.  You can find the new Encore Gold and Silver pads along with the Magnificent Maple stamp in the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.

You can find the complete tutorial for this project below.

I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my beginner brayer videos.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT
Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .
Project Supplies:
Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Magnificent Maple (item 131868) and Lacy & Lovely (item 122887)
Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Basic Black and Whisper White
Ink: Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke, Stazon Jet Black and Encore Gold and Silver Pads
Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Dazzle Gold Marker, Clear Embossing Powder and Heat Gun


Stamped the Magnificent Maple stamp once in Gold and once in Silver on a 4.5″ square piece of Whisper White and then heat embossed them using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.

Sponged Old Olive ink over the card stock using a circular motion.

Stamped the leaf again using Always Artichoke ink all over the card stock.  Wiped the ink off of the embossed images using a paper towel.

Used the Gold Stampin’ Dazzle marker on the edges of the card stock.


Sponged Pumpkin Pie ink in the leaves.

Stamped the “Hello” sentiment from the Lacy & Lovely Stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink.


Added a 5.5″ square Cajun Craze card base and 4 Old Olive 1.25″ squares.

Also added a 4.75″ Basic Black panel.

Here is the finished card measuring 5.5″ square.

May your day be magnificent!

Until my next post. . . . . .
Huge Hugs!
