Another challenge during VSN last month was to create a card with the Baby Wipe Technique. When I looked at the old tutorial I shuttered at the sample. It was high time to update that tutorial. For my new sample I used Flourishes gorgeous set called Fanciful Flourishes. I used Peeled Paint, Weathered Wood and Chipped Sapphire Re-inker on my baby wipe, inked up my solid butterfly and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock. The flourish butterfly was stamped on top with Jet Black Archival ink. The butterfly was cut out and Stardust stickles was applied over it.


The card base is a textured Old Olive cardstock cut with the Scallop Square Stampin’ Up! Big Shot die. It was layered with a 4 1/16″ square of Whisper White. A 3 3/4″ square of October Afternoon Ducks in a Row Paper was sanded and stitched to a 3 15/16″ pieced of distressed Basic Black cardstock square. A black scallop square was cut with Square Nestabilities and adhered to a 2 3/4″ square of Ducks in a Row Paper. A border from Fanciful Flourishes was stamped around the outer edge and a sentiment from the same set was stamped on the upper center with Jet Black Archival Ink. The butterfly body was adhered to the center with Scor-Tape, the wings with dimensionals. To finish the card I added Hero Arts small accent pearls to the Butterfly body, underneath the sentiment and on the upper right hand corner.


For the inside of the card a 1″ x 3 3/4″ strip of Ducks in a Row paper was adhered to a 3 3/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. A border was stitched around it and the flourish butterfly image was stamped on it in black.

Here is a video for the visual learner:

For the video I created another sample. A CAS card that would show off that you can stamp outline/design stamps with a baby wipe pad. I used the same Fanciful Flourishes set.


For this card I used Chipped Sapphire and Broken China Distress Re-inker. The Damask image was stamped on a Textured White Label 3 Nestabilitiesdie cut. I cut a card base with the largest Label 3 Nestabilities out of Night of Navy cardstock. The edges were sponged with Chipped Sapphire ink. The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped in Chipped Sapphire. Underneath I added little pearls with Baby Blue Liquid Pearls.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
