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.

Seasonally Scattered Thanks

Seasonally Scattered Thanks

Seasonally Scattered is a fun stamp set this year that you can use to create thank you cards, Christmas cards and Valentine’s Day cards.  You’ll find it in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog on pg. 43.  With just 3 simple stamps, this set is a must have for showcasing techniques and for doing quick & easy cards.

  • I began thinking about this card with Fall colors in mind, but I wanted something a little lighter so that I could emboss over the top of the colors.  I chose the Subtles family colors – Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron and Calypso Coral – with some added Early Espresso.
  • It didn’t photograph all that well, but I used Shimmery White Cardstock as my base to stamp on and literally dragged my stamp pad over the cardstock in an arching motion from left to right.  I started at the bottom with Wild Wasabi and moved up, letting the colors blend and overlap just a bit.  The shimmer from the cardstock shows through the colors and gives a nice added look.
  • Next I stamped “thanks” from Seasonally Scattered using my VersaMark pad, then sprinkled on Early Espresso Embossing Powder and heated it up with my Heat Tool.
  • Accents on the bottom are Venetian Crochet Trim and Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon.  The button is an Early Espresso one from the Neutrals Designer Buttons.  I pulled apart some of the Very Vanilla fibers from the Natural/Old Olive Two-Tone Trim and made an “X” through the center, adhering it to the card with a Glue Dot.
