Welcome to the July 2020 Technique Blog Hop! I’m excited to be a part of this fun collaboration with fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators again. This month’s theme is the Baby Wipe Technique. Keep reading to see my project below, then make sure to hop over to the other blogs to check out more great projects featuring the Baby Wipe Technique.
Baby Wipe Technique
The Baby Wipe Technique is where you make your own “ink pad” using a few baby wipes and some reinker bottles. The result is a tie-die color effect with your stamped images. I found that using darker/bolder colors works better than lighter/paler colors.
To make the baby wipe “ink pad,” lay three baby wipes on top of each other. Then fold in half two times. I had my folded baby wipes on the Silicone Craft Sheet to protect my table top from the wetness of the wipes and the ink drops (a plastic plate could work, too).
Now, start dropping ink all over the wipe ink pad. For this one, I used Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, and Gorgeous Grape.
Once you are satisfied with your ink drops, you can press your stamp into the “ink pad” and stamp on your paper.
To make the card, stamp the large floral and stems images from the Hand-drawn Blooms stamp set on a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the two smaller floral images multiple times and die cut them with the matching Banner Blooms Dies.
Layer the large stamped cardstock onto a 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ piece of Basic Black cardstock. Adhere this layered piece to a standard card base of Gorgeous Grape cardstock. Add the die cut flowers over the main image using Mini Dimensionals.
For the sentiment, stamp “thank you” on a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock using the Gorgeous Grape ink pad. Trim and punch with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to your desired size. Add this piece to the card with Mini Dimensionals. Finish it off with a few of the Artistry Blooms Sequins.
I made another card the same way, the only difference is the colors. For this one I used Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, and Mango Melody.
The Baby Wipe Technique can result in so many unique looks. Here is a tip if you need help deciding on which ink colors to use. Take a look at the color collections on pages 142-143 in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog or on this color page of the online store. Pick a color you like and use two colors near it. Three colors is a good place to start, but you could experiment with more colors or colors that are not as similar.
