Well, have I had fun today? I have been doing a Cary and choosing to get myself messy! Cary loves to do lots of different methods of making cards and although I love the Baby Wipe technique, I haven't used it in many years. Until today! It has been so much fun and because I kept moving the wipes in the tray, I got myself covered in ink! Oh well, never mind!!😀
I started by placing 5 or 6 baby wipes in a tray and then added numerous drops of re-inkers in 5 different colours, 3 blues and 2 yellows, although looking at my cards, you wouldn't think I had used blues at all! The next thing was to put some elastic or rubber bands around some different shaped acrylic blocks. The most bands that I used on a block was 3. Then I started to play. I had the Perfectly Plaid stamp set sitting on my desk so I took some white mats and using the blocks with bands on, made some different backgrounds. Then using 1 of the pine trees, I inked it up using the wipes and stamped them onto another mat and a spare mat to be punched out. I used another filling in stamp to colour them in too.
The first card was on a soft blue card base. I had used the rubber bands and then a plain block to give a mottled effect too. Punching out 3 of the trees and mounted them using double sided foam or in Stampin' Up! words, Dimensionals and messages to complete it.
Last card for today.
This last card I really went to town on. I used the rubber banded blocks again on this one and really randomly covered the white mat. I die cut a wreath from the Wreath Builder dies in 2 gorgeous shades of greens. I then stamped a third one using the baby wipes and inks. Yes, I just had to do some fussy cutting too, you know I love fussy cutting! I fussy cut out the wreath and added some of the little 'flowers' onto it. All mounted up, I think they look pretty good together. What do you think?
