HIMCR #30 - Baby Wipe Technique

I hope everyone is having a great Saturday!!

The challenge this week, the 3rd week of the month, is Time for a Technique SATURDAY:  HIMCR30 (please use this code when uploading to online galleries).  The technique is the Baby Wipe technique (see tutorial below).  I hope you like it!  I have had at least one child in diapers for over 7 years so of course I have baby wipes and I know many stampers use them to clean off their stamps.  I really like the effect from this technique and will be using it again! 

You have until Friday, January 27th to link up your baby wipe creation to get entered into the monthly drawing this week. 

Here's what I came up with:

Card Base: SU Dusty Durango  4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   SU Chocolate Chip 4 1/8" X 5 3/8",  Always Artichoke 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  More Mustard
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, reinkers
Stamps:   PTI Leaf Prints & Masculine Motifs (sentiment)
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & Floral Screen (brushed over lightly with white ink pad), SU Dusty Durango ribbon, SU label punches & corner punch, brads

Here's the tutorial:

All you need is:

A Baby Wipe
Solid image stamps (I used Leaf Prints from
paper plate or scrap paper

Randomly add drops of ink from the reinkers onto the baby wipe folded in half.
Be sure and place the wipe on something to keep your work area clean.

Ink up your stamp using the ink pad you have created.
Stamp image!
Every image will be a little different!
Here I used the coordinating Papertreyink Leaf dies to precut my leaf.
This technique is so easy and so much fun!  I hope you enjoy it too!

  1. Lovely card. That's a beautiful color for the leaf. The embossed background really adds to your card.

  2. This is an interesting idea. And I love the background. Different approach.

  3. Your leaves are gorgeous! What a fun technique!

  4. Thanks for the inspiration! That is a great technique.

  5. gorgeous Laurie - it is SO long since I used this technique, I think it is time to do it again. :)

  6. I have not done that technique in ages! Great card...and that screen in the background is beautiful!

  7. I have to give this a try. Love the card. Great job.

  8. Gave it a try and I could see the ink on my flat image stamp but when I stamped it onto the white cardstock and then lifted there was nothing, no image no color on the cardstock at all. Also, I'm glad I put 2 sheets of paper towel on top of a piece of cardboard to put the paper plate on because the ink went thru the paper plate & the paper towels. I'm now using a thicker paper plate under the first paper plate and am going to try another stamp.
