Happy Monday Stamping Friends!

I used the Baby Wipes Technique to make the Watering Can flower bouquet on today's card.  Can you see how the flowers are all different colors?

If you aren't familiar with the Baby Wipe Technique, it is super simple!  Just take a Baby Wipe and fold it up a bit so you have 3 - 4 layers of the baby wipe material.  Then, using your re-inkers, add 3 - 4 drops of ink on the baby wipe.  Add additional drops of different color inks.  For this card I used Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, and Mango Melody Ink.  You want the drops to be close enough together so as the ink spreads it "just meets" the next color.  A little overlap of color is OK, but if you get multiple colors too close, they can mix and become muddy.  A small gap between colors is better than too much overlap.  When the ink is the way you like it on the baby wipe, you then use the inked baby wipe as your stamp pad to ink your stamp.  Tap a few times to make sure the image is completely inked.  Solid image stamps tend to work best with the Baby Wipe Technique.  My bouquet of daisies is more of a line image stamp, so I wasn't sure how well it would work with this technique, but I like how it turned out.  So don't be afraid to try new things!

The layout for my card is a variation of one of my go-to layouts--two rectangles and a circle.  It works well with designer paper or embossed solid panels to add texture.     I added a second smaller circle this time for the sentiment and also embossed the front 5-3/8" x 4-1/8" panel with the Splatters & Stripes Embossing Folder.   All the cutting dimensions are available on the FREE TUTORIAL that you can download using this link.

For the inside of the card, I used the Baby Wipe Technique again to create another daisy bouquet in the Flowerpot.  You can also see a sneak peak of the envelop where I again used the same Technique to decorate the front corner of the envelop.  Once you have your Baby Wipe inked up, you can use it multiple times.

See the complete list of Products used on today's card below.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Sale-A-Bration Sunshine & Rainbows collection, which is no longer available, but you can use any designer series paper that you have in your stash!

If you have never tried the Baby Wipe Technique, I challenge you to try it!  Experiment with different colors and different stamps.  I think you'll have fun playing with it!
