The Baby Wipe Technique is one of my favorites — it is super easy to do, and yields fantastic results! Your results are limited only by the colors of reinkers that you have.
- Stamp that has a solid image (as opposed to a line art image that can be colored in)
- Classic Reinkers in at least two colors
- A clean, fresh baby wipe
- A tray or plate to put the baby wipe on
Fold your baby wipe into quarters and place it on the tray.
Add several drops of each of the colors of reinker to the baby. You are basically creating your own ink pad. I used Daffodil Delight and Real Red to create the same look as the gummy worms that I wanted to use on the card.
Use this newly created ink pad to ink up your stamp, then stamp on your card stock. If you use colors that are very different, like I did with yellow and red, you may want to clean off your stamp each time before inking it up.
After you finish creating your piece, finish your card as usual. Below is my completed project.
Stamps: Bugs & Kisses
Ink: Real Red, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Whisper White
Other: 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Large Tag Punch, Extra-Large Tag Punch, Sweet Treat Cup, Real Red 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon
Remember, this adorable Bugs & Kisses stamp set will be discontinued after June 30th, as will ALL of the 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.
I’d love to see your creations with this technique! Be sure to leave me a comment if you make something!
