Are you ready for today’s trio of beautiful cards using the Cheers to the Season Stamp Set? On Monday I showed you a couple of cards using this set and how easy it was to create a simple card and then step it up by adding a few more layers. I also said I would be showing you different stamping techniques that you can do with this stamp set. I love a stamp set that you can take it and use it for a variety of occasions but you can also use it in different ways with different techniques.
Today’s cards all feature the Baby Wipe Technique showcasing a few different ways to use the baby wipe not only as an ink pad but to create background pieces and pieces that you can die cut to add even more elements to your cards. I’ll take each card in the trio and break it down for you on how it was done and you can decide which way or card you like best.
Let’s Dive into Card #1 Using the Cheers to the Season Stamp Set
If you are new to the baby wipe technique you can find a video tutorial I made years back HERE. This stamping technique is super easy to do so let’s jump in. To begin you will need a little pile of baby wipes. I think I folded about 5 or 6 baby wipes creating a nice cushion on a paper plate. I then added Crushed Curry Ink Refill in the center, followed by Poppy Parade and then the outside edge was Cherry Cobbler. I find 2 or 3 colors is a nice mix more than that and your color can become muddy. Also, this technique works best with solid image stamps that you will find in the Cheers to the Season stamp set.
Once you have your faux ink pad you can begin by inking up your image and stamping just like any other stamp and ink; but you will find a nice marbling of colors when you stamp your image. Each stamped image will be a bit different depending on how much ink you get on your stamp and as you repeat inking the colors will combine more and more.
For the first card I stamped the leaf image twice and then decided to use the dotted image from the same stamp set to splatter around my leaves. I then decided to place the whole stamped image inside the Crosshatch embossing folder and emboss it. This embossing folder is part of the Basics 3D Embossing Folders pack only available ONLINE; you will not find it in any of the Stampin’ Up! publications.

I matted the embossed piece onto a piece of Crushed Curry and the card base is Cherry Cobbler. I then added a couple of gold bows from the Simply Elegant Trim pack and finished it off with Gold Sequins from the Neutrals Adhesive-backed Sequins.
So Thankful Card #2
Now when I create an Ink Refill ink pad with baby wipes, I like to make sure I get a lot of images stamped; at least more than I intend on using and then to use up the remaining ink I make background prints. So, for this card I created the dotted background embossed piece with the baby wipe pad and the dotted stamp from the set. I also inked and stamped the leaf image and then hand cut it out. I popped up the leaf image using dimensionals and the die cut pieces it is attached to are from the Nested Essentials Dies. Again, I used the Gold Simply Elegant Trim and the Gold Sequins to finish off the card. I also stamped a leaf image on a piece of 4 X 5 1/4 Basic White cardstock and attached it to the inside of the cards.
After you have stamped all your images and it seems like your ink is running out it is time to start creating some background prints. I picked up the baby wipe “ink pad” and dragged it across a piece of Basic White cardstock creating my own Designer Series Paper; I created quite a few background pieces. After your paper has dried you can cut it in strips, die cut it or even stamp on it with Black ink and hand cut or die cut out your images.
For this card I cut a strip of my handmade Designer Series Paper and used the banner from the Nested Essentials dies to create the banner piece along the bottom edge. I also used it to die cut the smaller circle using the Stylish Shapes dies circle die. Again, I embossed the Crushed Curry cardstock with the Crosshatch embossing folder and then attached it to a piece of Basic White and the card base on this one is the Poppy Parade cardstock.
