There’s a lot going on with today’s card. It’s a fun fold, specifically the Flip Front Fun Fold. And, it uses product you can earn free during Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration promotion: the Light & Airy Designer Series Paper (DSP). In addition, I paired it with the Everyday Details Bundle (available in Stampin’ UP!’s January-April 2024 Mini Catalog). I love how the bird nest image from the Everyday Details stamp set coordinates with the bird images from the Light & Airy DSP.
The Everyday Details Dies enticed me to purchase the bundle. I love the dotted borders on the dies.

In today’s post, I share a super easy design that showcases larger pieces of the Designer Series Papers. I CASEd this design from page 63 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. (As an aside, CASE means Copy and Share Everything. In the stamping and creative world, we pride ourselves on sharing with others to offer inspiration.) Then, I “stepped” the card up, adding a few extra elements.

When we think about creating fall-themed cards, it’s a good time to pull out the baby wipe technique. Although it can be used for other themes, this technique lends itself really well for fall.
What is the baby wipe technique? (Be sure to watch the video below to see step-by-step visual instructions for making this technique come to life.) But here’s the crux of it:
Layer a couple of baby wipes on a Silicone Craft Sheet
Drip a few drops of reinker of desired colors on the baby wipe. For this card, I used Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Cherry Cobbler. Make sure to cover the area the size of the stamp.
Use the baby wipe as your ink pad. Press the stamp onto the wipe and then stamp on your card stock.
Gorgeously Made Baby Wipe Technique
For today’s card, I used the large leaf stamp from Stampin’ Up!’s Gorgeously Made stamp set. Here are some other details that may help you create this card at home:
Thick Very Vanilla Card Stock Base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
Very Vanilla Card Stock layer die cut with Deckled Rectangle Dies and run through the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder (an Online Exclusive)
Cherry Cobbler Card Stock layer cut with Deckled Rectangle Dies
