Last night I taught the “Baby Wipe Technique” to the ladies in my stamp class. It’s a really fun way to create a mottled, multi-colored effect and it’s perfect for any stamp with a large image area.
We had a really fun class and I always love when new people join me for a class! I consider it a great compliment when a regular student invites a friend to come! I had two ‘regulars’ invite friends and had 3 new peeps in class! It really was a great night. And despite the impending snowstorm/blizzard headed our way, everyone wanted to come to class! We decided since the snow wasn’t supposed to start until around 11PM, we could have class and get home before any real snow started. Here is the first project we made:
For this card, we used the Reverse Words stamp set (available for FREE thru March 31st during Sale-A-Bration). I used Pink Piourette, Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry ink. A bit of bling from the Glimmer Paper Assortment (also FREE during Sale-A-Bration!) and a few metallic sequins finished it off. Quick, easy and so much WOW!
The next project also featured the Baby Wipe Technique, but we stepped it up a bit with more layers and stamping.
The Baby Wipe Technique was used to color the background layer of the butterfly which was stamped using an image from the Watercolor Wings stamp set and cropped out using Bold Butterfly Framelits. A detailed Butterfly was cropped from the Butterflies thinlits from Island Indigo cardstock and layered on top.

Well, if you’re in the Northeast and affected by Blizzard Stella, stay safe and warm! It’s a good day to hunker down and stamp, in between rounds of shoveling & snowblowing. Happy Stampin’!
