Vintage Leaves Baby Wipe Technique

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves #138802, Stampin' Up! Wetlands #126697, Baby Wipe Technique, designed by Stampin Scrapper, please see more card and gift ideas at stampinscrapper.com

The baby wipe technique is such a fun and pretty technique.  You can get a different look every time you ink your stamp.  I bet you are wondering just what is this technique.  Let me tell you!!!  

You take 4 baby wipes (make sure they are the unscented ones) and put them on top of each other on a paper plate or I use a Standard stamp Cases #119105.  These are the ones that the clear and photopolymer stamp sets come in.  They work perfect.  You are then going to take  ink refills in as many colors as you would like,but I usually don't use more than 4 of them.  On this project I used Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi.  You will put drops of each ink refill on the baby wipes and make sure there are no white areas left.  You want to make sure that you have ink to cover your stamps.  

You will then use the baby wipes as your ink pad.  Look how different the two cards are above.  I used the same baby wipes, the only different is the one on the right was stamped right away and the one on the left I stamped about 30-45 minutes later.  So, the longer you leave the inks on the baby wipes they lighter the image will be once it is stamped. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

You will use the Leaflets Framelits to cut out your leaves.  I also stamped one of the leaves in the inside of my card and envelope. I also used the Tangerine Tango ink and sponges to go around the leaves to give them dimension.  

Here are two close ups of the two cards so you can see the difference between the colors.

Which one do you like best?  The lighter or darker one?

Over the weekend Erica and I went with our friends to Disney on Ice. It was a lot of fun and the girls absolutely loved it.  I would recommend anyone who has children if you get a chance to go see it!

Have a fabulous week!

Happy Stampin
