Lately, I have been obsessed with Mama Elephant’s Wiper Surprise Die. Before I bought it, I watched the tutorials off the Mama Elephant Youtube Channel probably like everybody else but I just didn’t get how the mechanism worked but I went and bought the die anyways!
I made this experimental wiper card a few weeks ago and I learned a lot from it. Once you just start playing with the mechanism it starts to make sense.
Here’s my second wiper card:
I’m still working through stamp sets that I haven’t used yet that are sitting on my desk, so for this card, I decided to use Mama Elephant’s Marine Friends stamp sets. I love the dolphins and envisioned them popping up out of water.
I stamped out the dolphins with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and coloured them with Copic Markers. I used N3, N1, and 0.
I cut out the elements of the wiper surprise die and a wave border from the Mama Elephant’s Ocean Waves Trio and ink blended them with Distress Oxide inks. For the background, I used Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, and Abandoned Coral. For the wave, I used Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Faded Jeans.
I partial stamped the sentiment, “You’re a wonderful”, and heat embossed it using Simon Says Stamps Steel Navy Embossing Powder.
Using Mama Elephant’s Friend Script, I die cut it twice out of 110lb white card stock and once out of silver glitter card stock from Recollections Signature Metallic Paper Pad. I adhered the die cuts together using a Zig Two Way Glue Pen then adhered it to the wave part of the card.
For the double wiper, I used 2 of the same wiper mechanism. The right sided wiper was glued into the card backwards.

That finishes up my second wiper card, I hope you guys liked it.
