Stampin' with Baby Wipes Technique

Yesterday I led a quick, easy and fun make & take at my Front Range Stampers Stampin' Up! Demonstrators' meeting.  It's called Stamping with Baby Wipes, or simply Baby Wipe Technique.

Our project was to create these cute tags (click on any image below for closer look).

The technique is basically to fold a baby wipe in half or quarters and drizzle a few drops of different colors of refill ink onto the baby wipe.  Then you use the inked baby wipe as your Stampin' Pad.  It's just a fun technique and you can come up with some great color combinations.

For a great video tutorial on how to do this technique, visit Jackie Bolhuis's site:  https://klompenstampers.com/2017/06/new-video-stamping-baby-wipes.html

To make the tags pictured, I grabbed some 5-1/4" x 2-5/8" pre-made tags from my stash.  The ink I used was Daffodil Delight, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Tangerine Tango for the fruit slices, and Daffodil Delight and Lemon-Lime Twist for the leaves (from the Lemon Zest stamp set).  The words were stamped with Basic Black Archival Ink, and the tiny black splatters were made with an Aqua Painter and Basic Black Archival Ink (this technique is also shown in Jackie's video).

But don't stop at just stamping the images!!!  There's a lot of ink left in those baby wipes, so we went on to make more tags by swiping and/or daubing the inky wipes on the paper.

I also made a few smaller tags yesterday (these are 4-1/4" x 2-1/8") to use as examples.  For these I used Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz Refill Ink with the bee image from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. 

Making these tags is like eating popcorn -- so addictive!!!  I could spend an entire day just playing with my reinkers and baby wipes and tags!!!!  I hope you try this technique soon.
