Baby Wipe Techniques for Two

Today, Gingersnap Creations has a new Spicy Supply Challenge - Baby Wipes! How fun! I usually only use Baby Wipes to clean up messes but once I googled baby wipe techniques, I found a lot of fun things to do with them.

As this month is Joys of Childhood at GC, the Roguette, my 11-year-old daughter, is helping me out with my challenge pieces. The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring our challenges this month and they have a bunch of fun digis that we played with.

My first card incorporated a simple background using a baby wipe. I folded the baby wipe over itself a few times until I had a nice edge. I added three drops in ink refiller to the folded edge of baby wipe and wiped it across some white cardstock to create an informal plaid pattern. I loved the great textures from the PaperTemptress papers too! Isn't the felt too cool?

Hopscotch
Stamp: Audrey's Playground Hopscotch (The Stamping Boutique)
Cardstock: Teal Felt Grandee, Neenah Solar White, Sky Blue Crepe (PaperTemptress)
Ink: Taken with Teal (Stampin Up); various copics
Other: baby wipe; corner rounder

For the second card, I added dots of ink to the baby wipe and then also dabbed some on a craft sheet and wiped it up with the same baby wipe. I let the whole thing dry and then used Tim Holtz flower dies as guides for cutting out flowers.

I love the softness of the blossom! I thought it would be a great embellishment for this little gardener.

Watering Can Girl
Stamp: Watering Girl (The Stamping Boutique)
Paper: Old Olive designer paper (Stampin Up)
Cardstock: Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Ink: Old Olive (Stampin Up); various copics
Other: baby wipe; oval cutter (Creative Memories)

Roguette just got back from camp where she tie-dyed camp shirts, so it was natural for her to pick a tie-dye technique. She twisted the baby wipe from the center and added rubber bands at irregular intervals similar to tie-dying. She then colored the spaces in between the rubber bands with markers. When unfolded, it became a tie-dye background.

Reading Girl
Stamp: Little Girl Fairy Once Upon a Time (The Stamping Boutique)
Cardstock: Real Red and Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Copics: B04. B05, B06, E00. E02. E07, E09. E34. E35, G21, R24, V04, V06, and 100
Markers: Real Red, Brilliant Blue, Elegant Eggplant and Certainly Celery (Stampin Up)
Other: baby wipe; rubber bands; oval cutter (Creative Memories)

We hope you play along with us at GC!
