Looking for a fun technique? Try stamping on embossing folders! I admit I’m not the first one to try this cool stamping trick, but it’s a wow! It’s especially fun with Stampin’ Up!’s Woodland Embossing Folder. This great folder is being retired from the product line and is on sale for $7.65. As of Tuesday, April 27, 2021, it is still available for purchase. Get it while supplies last or before May 3, whichever comes first.
In fact, be sure to check the Last-Chance Products Sale to see which products are leaving (some are on sale up to 60 percent off). We need to make room for brand-new goodies available May 4 when the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goes live. Shop soon to get the products you want!
I used two other retiring products on this card: the Winter Woods stamp set (trees) and Butterfly Gala (sentiment). In addition, I created the background with Stampin’ Up!’s Blending Brushes and Balmy Blue ink.
Be sure to watch the video below for a look at how the great technique works! You’ll want to purchase this folder just to try this. It also works well with the deer from the current Nature’s Beauty stamp set as well as old trucks from previous sets.

You can also add any sentiment to this card and make it work. I like it for a masculine card and lends itself to a wintry scene for holiday cards, too.

Join me today as I show you how to use ink refills and baby wipes. There’s even a video at the end of the post.
Stampin’ Up!’s ink refills serve the primary purpose of reinking Stampin’ Up!’s Classic Ink Pads when they become dry after many uses. However, the refills can be used for other crafting projects such as water coloring and the baby wipe technique. (I recommend purchasing the refill with the pad so you have it on hand. It’s a great value for $3.75 per bottle.)
The baby wipe technique isn’t new. But it’s a fun one to reintroduce each year, especially in the fall. I love the way the colors can be used to mimic the changing foliage.
How to Use Ink Refills
For this card, I used the coordinating and rich colors of: Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Blackberry Bliss, and Cherry Cobbler.
I squirted a little bit of each color onto a folded baby wipe (be sure to protect your table with wax paper or an Acrylic Mat). Watch the video below for visual instructions. Press your stamp (I used a leaf from Stampinin’ Up!’s Rooted in Nature Stamp Set) into the ink on the wipe. Then stamp the image onto the card stock. You can change the color of the leaf by moving the stamp around on the baby wipe ink pad.
Here are the paper measurements:
- Blackberry Bliss: 8 1/2 inches x 5 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches for base, a 4 x 3 piece, and one cut with the Layering Ovals Die
- Very Vanilla: 5 1/4 inch x 4 inch for inside
- Cherry Cobbler: 5 1/4 x 4 inch, embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder
- Shimmery White: 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches and 3 x 2 inches
- Linen Thread: 30 inches
This fun technique works with a variety of colors and stamp sets. Experiment and have fun. Please let me know if you have questions about this technique or other paper crafting cards. If you aren’t currently working with a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I’d love to be a part of your creative journey. Post a comment on this post or email me at: email@example.com.

Showcasing a masculine card using Stampin’ Up!’s Rooted in Nature stamp set and Nature’s Roots Dies.
Last Saturday, I participated in Team Stamps It’s monthly blog hop. This month, we featured cards centering on the men in our lives and Father’s Day. I made two cards, and I couldn’t decide which one to share. See Saturday’s card (using the brand-new World of Good Suite) here.
When I designed this card, I liked the idea of using the Woodland Embossing Folder to make a background with three different colors: Garden Green, Crumb Cake, and Cherry Cobbler.
The Rooted in Nature stamp set offers a host of images perfecting for creating masculine-themed cards. I’m excited to say this stamp set and its coordinating dies appear in Stampin’ Up!’s new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.
The coordinating Nature’s Roots Dies coordinate with the above stamp set. Through June 2 or while supplies last, these dies are listed on sale for $15.60. That’s a deal!
A couple of notes about this card. I stamped the:
- stump image with Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock and fussy cut with snips;
- leaf image onto Vellum Card Stock with Garden Green ink three times without reinking. (That’s called third generation stamping.) Step away and let the ink dry before die cutting.
See the photo below for how that looks on Vellum. I then used a die cutting machine and the coordinating dies to get the images.
