We love baby wipes in this house. Our babies might not be teeny tiny any more, but that doesn’t mean they still don’t make mess. I still carry some around in my handbag, and have them stashed around the house for quick clean ups. But, did you know you should also have some in with your crafty tools – not only for cleaning up those inky fingers, but for stamping with?
Here’s a card that we made at last Tuesday’s Technique Class; it uses two baby wipe techniques – Baby Wipe Background, and Baby Wipe Ink Pad (or that’s what I call them – do a search on Google, and you may come up with some slightly different names, but they’re the same technique!)
- Stamp Set: French Foliage, Afterthoughts (Level 1 Hostess Set)
- Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Re-inkers in Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron
- CS: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Glossy White
- Accessories: Cropodile, Metallic Eyelets, Baby Wipes
The tartan background was inspired by this Gina K. card – I already knew how to do a striped background, but it had never occurred to me to turn the cardstock around and swipe away again! Thanks for the inspiration Gina!
I was trying to create a more ‘masculine’ look for this one – it’s always handy to have a few cards stashed away so you can look organised for people’s birthdays (my problem is not the card making – it’s getting them to the post office on time!) I think French Foliage may be one of those rare stamp sets that you’ll be able to use for both masculine and feminine cards, so if you love the look of it as much as I do, don’t miss out – it’s only available until 31st July (unless it makes it into the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogue, and I can’t guarantee that).
If you’d like to learn how to make this card, I’ll be running this class again on Wednesday 15 June – just email or call to make your booking!
Thanks for taking a peek today.
