Waterfront A Tutorial Medley Group Card by Cathy Davis Autrey

Welcome to a tutorial Friday.  I like to share a tutorial from the Tutorial Medley Facebook Group.  We are a private group of demonstrators who each make a card with a tutorial every month.  We are free to share these.  The card I'm sharing this week features the stamp set Waterfront.  It is by Cathy Davis Autrey.

Cardstock: Shimmery White (101910), Soft Suede (115318), Mossy Meadow (133676), Very Vanilla (101650)

Ink: Balmy Blue (147105), Seaside Spray (150085), Mossy Meadow (147111), Old Olive (147089), Crushed Curry (147087), Early Espresso (147114)

Tool & Accessories:

- Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder (152320)

- Sponge Brayer (141714)

- Stampin' Dimensionals (104430)

- Snail Adhesive (104332)


Soft Suede: 8 ½” x 5 ½”, 4” x 5 ½”

Mossy Meadow: 3 ¼” x 5 ½”

Shimmery White: 3” x 5 ½”, 1” x 3 ¾”

Very Vanilla: 4” x 5 ¼”


Run 4” x 5 ½” piece of Soft Soft through embossing machine using the Pinewood Plants Embossing Folder.

With sponge brayer, pick up Early Espresso ink and roll over “planks” to highlight the grain. Adhere to front of cardbase.

With a clean sponge brayer, pick up Balmy Blue ink with Sponge Brayer and roll over entire 3” x 5 ½” piece of Shimmery White several times, then pick up Seaside Spray ink and lightly blend that in until you get the look you want.

Stamp moon in Crushed Curry then stamp mountains in Mossy Meadow so they are under the moon. Stamp again to make them very dark.

Using Seaside Spray ink, stamp water centered under the mountains, then using Old Olive, stamp grass on both sides of water.

With Crushed Curry ink, stamp little dots in water to look like the water is sparkling.

Stamp trees on both sides of water and on the bottom corner of the Very Vanilla inside piece with Mossy Meadow.

Stamp birds in sky using Early Espresso ink.

Adhere stamped Shimmery White piece onto Mossy Meadow piece, then using Dimensionals, adhere that to center of Pinewood Planks piece.

With Seaside Spray ink, stamp verse onto 1” x 3 ¾” strip of Shimmery White then adhere to bottom.

Enjoy! And remember to....Just Breathe!
