Baby Wipe Technique Using Merry Merlot & Crushed Curry

I had such a positive response to my card using the Baby Wipe Technique that I decided to make another one! If you missed yesterday’s post using this technique, which also includes a video, click here.

To create the leaves on today’s card I used two ink refill colors, Merry Merlot and Crushed Curry along with the stamp set, Colorful Seasons.  This technique uses several folded baby wipes with drops of your favorite ink which then becomes your stamp pad. It’s really fun and once you get started, you can’t stop! 

After making the first card, above, I decided to make another one while my “stamp pad” was juicy.  The second one is more muted but still so pretty! 

Merry Merlot Crushed Curry Baby Wipe Technique

I used the stamp set, Free as a Bird, for the sentiment with Merry Merlot ink.  I wanted a small sentiment because I didn’t want to cover the beautiful leaves! The sentiment on the first card was placed up near the top to cover a leaf that didn’t get completed stamped.  I didn’t want to waste my masterpiece so did the next best thing – I covered it up! 

Here’s a side by side comparison of the two cards.  

 

I hope you give this technique a try!

Baby Wipe Technique Using Fall Colors

Today’s card was made using the Baby Wipe Technique (I also have a video).  This technique is super easy and lots of fun! You’ll need baby wipes and our ink refills (I also refer to them as reinkers in the video). I used Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.

Ink Refills Baby Wipe Technique

 

The leaf stamp is from Colorful Seasons and because I needed a small sentiment, I used the To Every Season stamp set.  The base of the card is Pumpkin Pie with another layer of Cajun Craze.  

To cut out the sentiment, I used these punches (click the images in the supply list below for more information about the punches):

  • Sentiment:  1″ Circle Punch
  • Pumpkin Pie layer:  1-1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch
  • Cajun Craze layer:  1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch

 

Give this technique a try! I think you’ll really enjoy it!

Come to Gather Thank You

Very Versailles Stamp Set

Happy Friday!

Today’s card features Come to Gather Designer Series Paper and the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  

Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

 

The base of the card is Merry Merlot cardstock and I added another layer of Merry Merlot, embossed with our Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  

To achieve the very best results when using our new style of 3D Embossing Folders, I used our 3D Embossing Folder Plate . This plate replaces the standard cutting plates when using the 3D folders but you’ll use the regular cutting plates for all other embossing folders. This is the sandwich you’ll use when using a 3D folder and the 3D Embossing Folder Plate: 

  • Embossing Machine Platform
  • Embossing Folder with cardstock inside
  • 3D Embossing Folder Plate

You won’t find this plate in a current catalog but you can find it in my online store here or by clicking the image of the plate below. If you have any questions, please reach out to me! 

3D Embossing Folder Plate

Mosaic Embossing Folder

Let’s get back to my card! The piece of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper is layered with Cajun Craze cardstock, two colors I wouldn’t have paired together had I not seen how beautiful these colors are in this paper! This layer has Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. 

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Very Versailles, and it was cut out with a 1″ Circle Punch.  I tend to primarily use Whisper White cardstock but for today’s card, I used Very Vanilla when stamping the sentiment. It sits on a layer of Merry Merlot cardstock that was cut using the 1-1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and a Cajun Craze layer using the 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  If you’d like to make today’s card, I’ve included the measurements below the supply list!

Stampin’ Up! Gathered Leaves Dies

I’ve really been enjoying making cards with fall colors.  I just wish the weather would cooperate where I live and show up with some fall weather! It’s suppose to be 101 today and tomorrow.  Ugh. Thank goodness for air conditioners! 

Today’s card features Come to Gather Designer Series Paper and the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I learned something new while making this card! Our new 3D embossing folders will give a much deeper impression if the paper is first sprayed with a fine mist of water.  I already knew that and to be honest, I’d prefer not to do this step and I usually don’t because I’m happy with the results I get not spraying my paper BUT what a difference it makes when you spray the paper first when using our Gathered Leaves Dies.  Three of the leaves in the set will come out embossed when you run them through your die-cutting machine and if you spritz the paper first, you’ll love the results. Can you tell which one I spritzed with water before I cut it out?

It’s the one on the right! Big difference, don’t you think? 

I also used the stamp set Gather Together for the sentiment which was stamped in Merry Merlot ink and cut out with the Stitched Nested Label Dies. After cutting my Pear Pizzazz and Pretty Peacock cardstock, I ran it through my die-cutting machine using the Mosaic embossing folder (I did not spritz the paper with water).

Layered Leaves & Very Versailles


Happy Monday!

If you enjoy making quick and easy cards, today’s card fits into that category!  I used the beautiful Very Versailles stamp set along with the Layered Leaves  embossing folder. I love the font used for the sentiment! It’s so pretty!

Please note: I just found out this morning that the Layered Leaves embossing folder is unavailable and can’t be found in my online store BUT it IS in the catalog and will be available soon.  Stampin’ Up! up has switched to a new supplier for the embossing folders and this has caused some delays in getting new stock.  I apologize for this inconvenience.

I used Old Olive for the base of the card and then added another layer of Old Olive so that I could emboss it. I used the Layered Leaves embossing folder and kept with the theme of leaves. I again used Old Olive to stamp the leaves and for the sentiment, I used Blackberry Bliss. This top layer has been popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

Today’s card showcases another design from our brand new Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the Holiday Catalog.  Oh my gosh, this paper is really pretty in person! If you didn’t see my card on Tuesday, it was also made using Come to Gather DSP and you can see it here.

Come to Gather Designer Series Paper

This is a quick and easy card to make! I paired this paper with Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze cardstock. Stampin’ Up! makes it easy to figure out which colors coordinate because they are listed on the back of the paper and in the catalog.  Sometimes I’ll use a color not indicated on the package but I always look at the colors they recommend. 

I used the stamp set Very Versailles for the sentiment which was inked up with Merry Merlot.

I’ve included the measurements below if you’d like to recreate today’s card.

 

Measurements

  • Merry Merlot cardstock:  11″ x 4-1/4″
  • Cajun Craze cardstock:  5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Come to Gather Designer Series Paper:  5″ x 3-3/4″
