Baby Wipe and Reinker Technique

Posted by on September 11, 2013 in fall, video | 0 comments

The Baby Wipe and Reinker technique is perfect for getting several different colors of ink on one stamp.  The Gently Falling stamp set is one of my favorites for fall, Thanksgiving and masculine type cards.
You can watch a video tutorial for this technique at my YouTube Channel:
but I’ll also give you the directions here.
  1. Fold two baby wipes together several times to form a blank ink pad
  2. Squeeze reinkers (Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Cherry Cobbler, Summer Starfruit) in different areas on the ink pad (be careful not to overlap the colors too much)
  3. Use the bold image leaf from Gently Falling on your ink pad (pat it in the same place on the ink pad several times)
  4. Stamp onto Whisper White cardstock (3 3/8″ x 3 5/8″)
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 as needed
  6. Stamp the outline image leaf from Gently Falling directly on top of the stamped leaves in Rich Razzleberry ink
  7. Add Summer Starfruit Satin Stitched Ribbon to the left side and tie a simple knot
  8. Layer onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock (3 1/2″ x 3 3/4″)
  9. Add to the front of the folded Pumpkin Pie cardstock (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″) with Dimensionals
  10. Stamp the greeting from Seasonal Sayings in Pumpkin Pie at the bottom of the front of the card

The Baby Wipe Technique can be used on either bold or outline images.  Try to use colors that will look OK if they blend a little too as there will be slight bleeding where the different color inks touch each other on your ink pad.

Try to also make several (if not many 🙂 cards once you’ve created your personalized ink pad since you can’t save it.

Hearts with different shades of reds and pinks would be pretty for Valentine’s Day and Christmas trees would be nice stamped with different shades of greens too.

Now you’ll have to purchase the baby wipes at your local store but the Stampin’ Up! supplies can be purchased at my online store.  You can also call or email me and I can place the order for you 🙂

Give the Baby Wipe and Reinker technique a try and let me know what you think!
