Baby Wipes #2

Baby-Wipe---Close-Up

Today I am sharing with you our 2nd card we created in class a couple of weeks ago using the Baby Wipe Technique, but this time we created a background using the wipes a different way.

For our card we used the large Dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits which was Baby-Wipes---Insidedie cut in Night of Navy & heat embossed with Clear Emboss Powder.  I think it gives it more depth & highlights the detail.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set.

The background was stamped using images from the Timeless Texture Stamp Set.

SC 042/12…

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.

I started out with something completely different in mind & when I couldn’t get my mind onto paper, I sort of winged this one, but am more than happy with the end result.  As I love Pink & Black, I decided to create something a little softer with a lighter pink, but still teaming it with Black.  I also kept the card to a minimum as I wanted the technique to be the focal point.

Measurements –
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
 

Inside Card…

Supplies –
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.  

I made a ink pad from the same Wet Ones I had previously used, using Pretty in Pink Re-Inker, inked my greeting & stamped direct onto a scrap piece of Glossy Cardstock.  This was punched out with the Word Window Punch & adhered to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock which had been punched with the Modern Label Punch.  I then punched a small hole in each end of the Basic Black Label with the 1/16″ Handheld Punch, threaded a piece of Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon through, tucked the ends under & adhered to the piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

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.

I would really like to know what you think?  Is it too plain????

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

Technique…



Inside of Card…



For the class at Caloundra Community Centre, we did the Technique – Baby Wipe.  This one has been around for some time, but I never tire of it & for the life of me, can’t understand why I don’t do it more often.  Tutorial for this Technique may be found Here…
Now I have made 2 complete different cards, each using the same design from pre-SU.  Mind you, these look nothing like the original.

Base Card – Tempting Turquoise – 4 7/8″ x 4 1/4″ or 15cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 4 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Daffodil Yellow – 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ or 11.5cm x 9cm
Layer 3 – Whisper White – 4 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ or 11cm x 8.5cm
Layer 4 – Melon Mambo – 3 1/2″ x 3″ or 9cm x 7.5cm
Layer 5 – Whisper White – 3 3/8″ x 2 7/8″ or 8.5cm x 7cm

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.

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Flower Fancy, All a Flutter, So Happy for You
Inks – Old Olive
Cardstock – Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Daffodil Yellow, Melon Mambo
Ribbon – 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon – Daffodil Yellow
Re-Inkers – Tempting Turquoise. Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant

Accessories – Multipurpose Glue, Snail Adhesive

Until next time when I will post the 2nd card.

Enjoy!
