I'm so excited to share this card I created for a swap at the Stampin' Up! Convention (now called OnStage Live) last month in Salt Lake City! To get the multiple colors I used the Baby Wipe technique – details below on how to do this!
Baby wipe technique – take two baby wipes and fold them in half. Add drops of ink refill on the baby wipe in an area about the size of your stamp image. The ink refills that I used were Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush, and Pool Party.
Then "ink" up the stamp by pressing it repeatedly all over the inky wipe, moving around to blend the colors. Then I stamp it on the cardstock.
Using the fabulous Big Shot die cut machine and the Butterfly Thinlits Dies I cut the medium detailed butterfly out of Whisper White and attached it over the stamp image with a glue dot. The finishing touch was the Bermuda Bay double stitched 1/8" ribbon.
I was able to make ALL of these cards and only had to re-ink the baby wipe one time!
At our event we got to see the new catalog (hint: you are going to love it!), play with new products, and see amazing demonstrations. Best of all we got to spend time with other passionate paper crafters. From top left to right: I got to help out with a presentation on stage (exciting!); with a some of my Stampfield Stars leaders before the CentreStage. Bottom left to right: Some of my Stampfield Stars passionate paper crafters that were able to attend this event with me; with demonstrator buddies (Kay Kahltoff and Sharon Armstrong); the backstage hair and make up artist getting me all dolled up to go out on stage!
An update on our "mama to be" Bella the Whippet (our Whip-it Wednesday mascot)! Her puppies are due to arrive this weekend! She has moved to the home of the breeder for the next 9 weeks where the puppies will be whelped and weaned. I will be visiting lots – I will be reporting to you how many puppies along with some pictures soon! Have a great week!
