Baby Wipe Technique

Good Morning!  It was so great to finally get a little rain yesterday.  Never thought I would be so happy for a gloomy day.  It was a great day to watch stamping videos and get inspired.  I came across the baby wipe technique video at Splitcoast, and although I have done this over at Stamp TV before, it was only to create a plaid.  The Splitcoast version used silhouette stamps.  I just loved it.  It works great on glossy card stock!


I used SU! reinkers in Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, and Rich Razzleberry.  My first card is my very favorite.  It has a gingham card base, my stamped layer with tiny Prima's and pearls added, and a stitched dog, which is also from Prima, popped in the center.  The sentiment is from Heidi Grace Stamps.

I would like to enter this first card in:
Creative Card Crew Challenge:  Animal Antics

My Time To Craft #150:  Delightful Dogs


My second card has layers of card stock in pink and Rich Razzleberry.  I popped a few leaves and added tendrils out of cloth covered wire.  My sentiment is from Art Impressions.  This time I added the tiny Prima's and clear gem centers.

Here are the stamps and supplies I used.  My grape vine is from JRL Design and the butterfly is from Magenta  This is the kind of  project that makes you keep wanting to make more and more.  I hope you will give it a try.  Have a great day!

These are both gorgeous Mary Anne! I think the first may be my fav too...there's something about the gingham paper! Wish we would have gotten some rain, just a few sprinkles here and it's getting so dry. I hear the heat is coming back too. :( Stay cool!
