The Baby Wipe Technique is one of my favorite stamping techniques.
I lay them flat, let them dry and use them in my crafting.
I know to some it looks like something that should be thrown away, but not to me!
Recycle and reuse, right?
The baby wipe I used for this card was left over from one of the baby wipes I used for a recent class.
Be sure to see that project HERE!
To me, it looked like tie dye.
But, it also looked like one of the stormy skies we sometimes see here in the mountains of Southern Colorado.
So, I decided to create my own little mountain scene.
So, to start crafting with it, I first applied glue from a glue stick onto a piece of regular card stock, then placed my used baby wipe on the glue and patted it down so it would stick.
By doing this, I was able to cut the piece down for my project. You need the baby wipe on a thicker surface to cut it down with a paper cutter or scissors.
I left it a little longer on the bottom so I could build my landscape scene right on the wipe.
I cut mountains, hills, and trees out of Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Garden Green card stock using my Big Shot and Outdoor Adventure Framelits Dies.
To create the snowy foreground, I simply tore a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the greeting from Wish Big using Melon Mambo ink.
Then, I was ready to build my landscape.
I simply layered them on top of the baby wipe using Dimensionals to pop up each layer. After the scene was built, I trimmed down the two sides to even them up. Then, I layered it onto a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock, then layered it onto my Crumb Cake card base.
Love the bold colors and texture on this one!
Recycle and reuse. Use those baby wipes in your crafting to create some great backgrounds!
