Stamping with Baby Wipe Technique

Seasonally Scattered baby wipe

I just love using the Baby Wipe Technique with Stampin’ Up! Ink Refills!  And this technique works really well with Seasonally Scattered, a fun stamp set in the Holiday Catalog.  Here’s how you’ll begin:

  • Choose about 4 colors for your palette.  I wanted this to be a Fall look, but I also wanted it to look just a little different than the usual colors, so I chose Crushed Curry, Rose Red, Garden Green and Eggplant Envy.

 

Regals Ink Refills

  • Fold a baby wipe in half and lay it on a surface that won’t bleed through.  I use my old-style stamp case.  This way, I can shut the lid and my inks stay wet for quite some time.
  • Squeeze about 10 drops of each color ink onto the baby wipe, being sure not to leave white spaces between the colors.

Baby Wipe Technique

  • Press your stamp into your homemade ink pad then stamp.  Be sure to clean your stamp each time you use it so that your colors don’t get muddy.

  • I used a thin border of Elegant Eggplant cardstock between the two layers of Very Vanilla.  My accessories are the Hello Honey Ribbon (close enough to the Crushed Curry ink) with an Autumn Wooden Element.

Fall is here!

 

Well, maybe it’s more like winter!  It snowed at my house last night!  The colors are at their peak here in the Finger Lakes, and this card reminds me of all the beauty that surround me.  I just got the Movers & Shapers Curly Label Die and was looking forward to using it, when I had the idea of having the pheasant from Autumn Days stamp set peek out the window.  I used a piece of More Mustard card stock measuring 4-1/4"x11" and ran it through the Big Shot with the die, which cut and scored my card, as well as cut the window, all in one movement.  Pretty slick, huh?!  I used the Sanded Background stamp with More Mustard Classic Ink to create the textured look on the base of the card, then wrapped some Elegant Eggplant 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon around the card and tied on an extra piece of the same ribbon in Always Artichoke.  The leaf paper comes from Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper and is backed with a torn piece of Ruby Red card stock.  On top is a Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware piece with a stamped leaf image from Autumn Days on Always Artichoke card stock.  I used the Vintage Brads to hold the piece in place.  To create the pheasant, I colored direct to the rubber stamp with markers in the colors that matched the designer paper–More Mustard, Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, Ruby Red, and a bit of Soft Suede for the feet.  I’m sure you want to see his whole body, so we’ll take a look inside:

Isn’t he gorgeous!  I loved how he turned out using all the different colors!  The sentiment is from Falling Leaves stamp set and is stamped in Soft Suede.
