Card Making: How to use a baby wipe as an ink pad!

Yes, you read the title correct…we are going to be card making using a baby wipe as an ink pad!!!  I have an easy technique to share with you that uses your stamp pad re-inkers along with baby wipes.  This technique has been around a long time; I think I remember doing this about 20 years ago!!!!  But it’s always fun to bring it back out as I know a lot of people have not tried it.  And it’s perfect for making fall colored cards!

Baby Wipe as an Ink Pad?! Who knew?? So easy, so fun, and gives your cards a beautiful look!

 

We are using a new stamp set from the Holiday Catalog called BEAUTY & JOY.  I think it’s a little hidden gem that I missed the first few times I looked at the catalog.

First I made some pretty quick and easy cards using note cards and a little bit of designer series paper.  And then, I played around some more and stepped it up bringing in the stitched rectangle dies (my fav!) and some layers and a little more “stuff.”

The above were made using the Note Cards & Envelopes that I often use since they are quick and easy.  I added a little coordinating color strip of Designer Series Paper from the 6 X 6 color collections, and BAM–DONE!

 

Stepped Up Versions

And then, I stepped each of them by using a few more supplies and adding a few more layers.  These were NOT HARD, they just took a little more time.
