Vintage Leaves With Baby Wipes

Vintage Leaves, Baby Wipes

This is the last card we did at our monthly Stamp Club meeting.  It uses a technique called Baby Wipes.  This technique has been around for a really long time but my friend, Deborah made a card using it a couple of weeks ago that was so cute, I thought I would show it to my club members.

It is really easy to do.  You take a couple of baby wipes and drop different colors of ink on it.  Then you just push the stamp onto the baby wipe as if it were an ink pad and stamp it on your cardstock.   I used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo.  Honestly, it might have been even better if I had used fall colors but I had already designed a card using those colors for my club that night.  Plus I wanted to use some Bermuda Bay Sequins on the card.

Although it is hard to tell, the greeting is cut into the layers of cardstock instead of layered on top.  The easiest way to do this is to line up the outside piece of cardstock (Bermuda Bay) with the inside piece (Daffodil Delight) and cut the smaller of the dies through both pieces.  You might have to run it through your Big Shot a couple of times to cut both layers.  This makes it easier to line up,  Then separate the two pieces and use a larger die on the Bermuda Bay piece being careful to line it up so it is even on all sides.  Then attached all the cardstock onto Whisper White cardstock and stamp the greeting in the middle.
