'By the Tide' Happy Birthday Card - Baby Wipe Technique

Happy Birthday Card.

This technique is a lot of fun and you get amazing results.

My Style Info
  • 'By The Tide' Stamp Set is the perfect blend for this technique. 
  • Water Colour Wishes Card Kit has a beautiful set of 12 sentiment stamps. I love the font of them and how this one sweeps across the card giving a 'beachie' whimsical feel. 
  • Candy Dots add the perfect balance.
  • Natural Chevron Ribbon & Crumb Cake Card Stock adds 'organic' feel. 
  • Use Stampin' Up! 'Classic Stampin' Ink Refills' on the Baby Wipe to create a mix of colours. See below for the colours I used.

  • For a sturdier Card Base I used Thick Whisper White Card Stock (140490) - For best results, Score first, then fold.


Here's a List of Stampin' Up! Products I used on today's Card

Stamp Sets - By The Tide, Water Colour Wishes All-Inclusive Card Kit.
Classic Stampin' Ink Pad & Refill Colours - Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, So Saffron.

Fantastical 'Tin of Cards Project Kit'

I love Stampin' Up!'s Card Kits because of the stress free card making they give me for those times when I want to be creative but don't want to think. And I love the luxury of not having to drag everything out, because it's all there in a convenient box!

My Style Info
  • The only things I've added to this card that are not in the 'Tin of Cards Project Kit' are:
    • The 'Congrats' stamped in the white spaces is from the Co-Ordinating Stamp Set 'Tin of Cards' which I stamped in Tuxedo Black.
    • You do get Gold and Clear Epoxy Stars in the kit, but I wanted a little more Bling!, so added the Glitter Stars using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and Champagne Glitter Paper.
    • The Glitter Branch, sitting under the Congrats Circle sentiment, I added using the branch from the Bird Builder Punch and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper, and it fits perfectly!

The kit includes Card Bases and Envelopes and Elements to make 16 Cards.

Emboss Resist Technique with Awsomely Artistic Stamp Set

  • I love Emboss Resist Technique - You get a whole lot of lovely! 
  • The Brick Wall Embossing Folder is the perfect partner for the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set.

My Style Info
  • This card features Heat and Dry Embossing.
  • I overlapped different colours for a unique look.
  • Dry Embossing
    •  The Brick Wall Embossing Folder is great for giving depth of colour because the ridges naturally catch colour without any added technique or ink, giving a darker shade than the bricks themselves.
  • No Hand Cutting 
    •   The Frame Stamp for the word 'Friend' coordinates with die from Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits.
    • The Gold Embossed Seal at top left hand corner coordinates with 1" Circle Punch.

Technique Booster

Supplies: VersaMark Pad, Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Sponges

1) Stamp image using VersaMark pad.
2) Cover image using Clear Stampin' Emboss powder, and heat set. Allow image to cool.
3) Dab your sponge directly onto the coloured ink pad of your choice and apply to card stock over and around embossed image with circular motions.
4) Wipe embossed image with tissue to remove excess ink.

FYI - You can now get Whisper White Card Stock in a thicker size. It's great for card bases and the regular size is still perfect for stamping and matting. See my Style Tips Below.

Endless Thanks Card on Thicker Whisper White Cardstock.

My Style Info
  • This stamped image is stamped directly onto the thicker card stock and end results are perfect!
  • FOR BEST RESULTS, score card before folding. 
  •  Endless Thanks Stamp Set, Metallic Thread & Thick Whisper White Cardstock used for this Card.
