Spellbinders’ The Painter’s Garden Collection featuring Carolina Allspice

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

Hello everyone! The Painter's Garden Collection is absolutely gorgeous as one might expect from designer, Susan Tierney-Cockburn. My first card features Carolina Allspice with its beautiful branches and rich red blooms ... sadly, not a shrub you would find in my northern climate! I will have to satisfied with this pretty paper version.

  • The card front was created with two panels using Layered Stitched Background. The first and third layer were cut from ivory card stock; the second in soft pink. The two panels together are A2 size and were mounted on pink card stock.

  • The card front was adhered to an A2 sized card base.

  • The sentiment from Outlined Sentiments consists of a shadow and script die. The shadow was cut from white foam and ivory card stock. The script from a gradient of COPIC R59 and RV99.

  • Initially, three branches from Carolina Allspice was cut from white card stock. Two additional branches were created and cut apart to add fullness to some areas after the card was completed.

  • The woody stem was COPIC coloured with E49 and 27 and the leaves with YG23 and 67.

  • The leaf mat, small ball tool and reverse tweezers from Susan's Garden Ultimate Tool Kit were used to shape the leaves.

  • The sentiment and the three branches were adhered to the card.

  • To create the flowers, the set of three petals was cut twice. For the flower buds, the smallest and middle petal layer were cut twice.

  • The smallest petal layer was coloured with RV99. The centres of the middle and large petal layers were coloured with RV99 and finished with R59.

  • The flowers and flower buds were shaped using the foam molding mat, regular tweezers and small ball tool from Susan's Garden Ultimate Tool Kit.

  • The flowers were adhered with some additional leaves.

  • The card was embellished with red sequins finished off Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.
