Several weeks ago in a Tool Time Tuesday installment, I talked about using Stampin’ Up! refills and the Baby Wipe Technique. Today’s card was made using that technique and I’d like to show you how easy it is to create your own stamp pad!
Choose your colors. I used Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie (these are my go to Fall colors).
Take 4-5 Baby wipes (it’s better if they don’t have a design on them) and fold them in half and then in half again. Take the lightest color, in my case, Crushed Curry, and add drops all over the wipe.
Next, add the next color (I used Pumpkin Pie) and start to fill in the area. Pretty easy so far, right?
And the last step is to take your remaining refill (Cajun Craze) and fill in all the white space. As you can see, I didn’t completely cover it up every last bit of space. This creates your stamp pad.
Now take your favorite stamp and ink it up with your faux stamp pad and stamp it on your paper! You’ll love the results and you’ll have a one of a kind card!
This card was made right after the one at the top of today’s post and you can see that it’s a bit lighter but no less beautiful.
Then, as an experiment, I spritzed the “stamp pad” and this was the result!
If you’re feeling inspired to give this a technique a try, I’d love to see what you create! You can email me or post it on my Stamping with Tracy Facebook page!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
