Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today we are showcasing soon to be retiring products from the 2020-21 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog and a fabulous stamping technique.
One of my favorite techniques is the “baby wipe” technique. This technique is so easy to do and it has a WOW effect in the final card. Here are some quick instructions and tips for the baby wipe technique:
- Start with a piece of foil that’s approximately 14×14″ and then fold it in half. Take a baby wipe and squirt some reinker onto the baby wipe. Don’t worry about getting even dots of ink or colors blending together.
- Place whatever you’re coloring face down on the baby wipe. You can see the wreath here in the picture.
- Fold the foil in half over the the die cut image. Press the foil together and rub the entire area where your die cut is.
- Peel open the foil gently. You’ll see that the ink has seeped through the die cut. If you have areas that did not get the ink, you can move your die cut around and repeat the steps.
- If you’re dyeing a number of pieces, you’ll want to add more reinker to the wipe periodically. If the wipe ends up too saturated, just start over with a new wipe.
- I use foil as my “folder” for this project since it’s nonporous. The ink won’t seep through and get all over my desk or my hands.
- When I’m not actively dyeing an item, I keep the foil folded closed so I don’t accidentally drop something onto the inky wipe or stick my hands into the ink.
You’ll need to set aside your pieces to allow them time to dry. As this is the fun part. Look at how different they all look, but yet they all go together so well. Plus all the color variations make my wreath look more realistic.
And here is the final project using those wreaths. Oh my goodness! I love how this turned out.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. If you have any questions about how to put all this together, just let me know.
