I love the bold bright colours of this card. Not usually my colours but that is the great thing about Teaching & doing Techniques, it does get you right out of your comfort zone. Plus I like to try & create cards that I know the ladies in the class will like, as well as creating cards to suit each individual style.
It was my turn to create the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations. Along with the sketch, we had to use the Technique – Baby Wipe.
Base Card – Whisper White – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – Basic Black – 5 1/8″ x 3 5/8″ or 13cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 – Glossy Cardstock – 5″ x 5 1/2″ or 12.5cm x 9cm
Stamp Set – Flower Fancy, Short & Sweet
Ink – Staz-On – Black
Cardstock – Whisper White, Basic Black, Glossy, Pretty in Pink
Punches – Modern Label, Word Window, 1/16″ Circle Handheld
Ribbon – 1/8″ Taffeta – Pretty in Pink
Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Tombow Multipurpose, Re-Inker – Pretty in Pink, Basic Pearl, Bigshot
Non-SU – Wet Ones
After I had applied my technique to my piece of Glossy Cardstock using Pretty in Pink Re-Inker & a Wet Ones, I stamped my image in the bottom LH corner of the cardstock with Black Staz-On. I was going to colour it using the same Re-Inker, but thought I would leave it how it is & keep it very simple. I then run the piece through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder – Prefect Polka Dots.
The whole piece was then adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White with Snail Adhesive. I popped a Basic Pearl to the middle of the flower to finish the card.

For the colours of my Baby Wipe, I used Re-Inkers – Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo & Elegant Eggplant.
Layer 1 –
I adhered a piece of Taffeta Ribbon across the top half of Whisper Cardstock & then applied to the Base Card – Tempting Turquoise.
Layer 2 –
First up, I stamp the flower images randomly across the larger piece of Whisper White. Then using Old Olive Ink, I stamped the leaf image randomly around the flowers & adhered to Daffodil Yellow Cardstock. I adhered Taffeta Ribbon across the top part of the card, ensuring that both ribbon pieces matched up evenly on the cardstocks. I tied a bow & adhered to card.
Layer 3 –
Stamp the butterfly images randomly over the smaller piece of Whisper White Cardstock & adhere to the Melon Mambo Cardsock. I adhered this piece to the 2nd layer & then adhered the whole lot to the base card.
I stamped the sentiment using Old Olive Ink directly onto the Whisper White Cardstock.
