Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
How is your week going so far? Hope well … as today I’m sharing two cute cards that showcases the Baby Wipe Technique. You will see two different ways to use those baby wipes.
I am using the Borders Abound stamp set, baby wipes, and Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point. You begin by laying out your baby wipes (I used the kind from the $ $tore) and then you add a few drops of ink in each color onto your baby wipe…
I chose these colors because I picked the snowflake border from the Borders Abound stamp set … now you can use this “inked” baby wipe as your new multi-colored stamp pad. I’m starting simple on my first card ….
I stamped my “multi-colored” snowflakes near the bottom and then added my Christmas greeting … this comes from the “Arrange a Wreath” stamp set. I believe I used this on the 5 cards I shared with you on Sunday (Click Here to View). The snowflakes were kissed with Wink of Stella … just a touch to add a subtle sparkle, and then I layered with the Pool Party to tie it all together. I wish the picture showed the Wink of Stella … so delicate.
My next Baby Wipe technique card, I used the same snowflake border stamp, but this time it’s inked with VersaMark so I can emboss my Whisper White card front in Clear Embossing Powder. Once embossed …. I took my “inked” baby wipe and ran it over the clear embossed image. WOW What a fun impact it creates on your card …
I trimmed my baby “wiped” card front and mounted it onto some Pacific Point. The white background was “speckled” with the Wink of Stella. Tap your Wink of Stella pen against another pen or a block to sprinkle the Stella onto the background … it’s beautiful! The little Wink of Stella spots shimmer and the heavier ones look silver, and they add such a wintry touch to your card.
I’m thrilled that you can actually see the little shimmer and silver spots from the Wink of Stella. And I love the look of “brush strokes” on this card … it appears as if you hand painted it!
This is one of those fun techniques (one of my favorites for Fall cards) where you get more bang for your buck because you can create two different looks from your Baby Wipe technique.
I’m not sure about you … but I come away with inky fingers when I do the “dragging” on the Baby Wipe technique. Some like to wear gloves, I don’t mind the inky fingers unless I’m going someplace nice.
I hope you enjoyed today’s technique and cards … I’d love to know what you’d like to see. Leave a comment below so I can better meet your stamping needs.
Thanks for the visit today, it’s appreciated. See you tomorrow!
