Funny, I thought Baby Wipes were for…babies.  Little did I know they were a crafting tool.  I seem to use household supplies, like bleach, an iron, and Swiffer dust cloths a lot more for crafting than cleaning.

Let me show you what I came up with for this hop…

For my first card, I tried droplets of color on a baby wipe and swooshed (a highly technical term 😉 it on glossy paper before die cutting it.  I’ll share the details of this and all the cards later in the month on “Technique Tuesdays”.

Card I made for the Baby Wipes Technique Blog Hop. I call this card Paint the Town

Next up is a card featuring two different Baby Wipe Techniques and I can’t wait to share them with you in my follow-up series.  I decided to use Autumnal colors to make a colorful Thanksgiving card.  I guess I’m pushing the season, but I really wanted to make a plaid with these colors.

Autumn Leaves wm 1

I felt this Stampin’ Up Seasonally Scattered stamp set (now retired) would be a good choice for this technique.  I’ve had it for so long and this is the first time I used it.  About time, wouldn’t you say?  I found a video showing a clever way to make a Z-Fold card.  I share more about that in the coming weeks.

Merry Z-Fold wm 1

My last card uses more Stampin’ Up products and another new to me card fold I learned from Susan Campfield’s Suestampfield Blog.  Here I inked a stamp, but used it to create a background before die cutting.

Like the Butterfly wm 1

If you’d like to know more about any of these cards, stay tuned for my Technique Tuesdays where I will share detailed information about each of the cards.

Now you’re off to the incredibly talented Claudia.  I know you will love what she has in store for you.  I hope you’re enjoying the projects you’ve seen along the way.  If you were inspired to try your hand at the Baby Wipes technique and would like me to showcase your card here, please e-mail me with a picture.

And here’s the full line-up in case you get lost:

  2. Claudia Henderson says:

    Kim my friend you created some wonderful cards and I can’t wait to read up on the tutorials for them next week. The skyline card is a really great idea and I love the Thanksgiving one too. Hard to believe the other two were made with the same technique. As always it was a pleasure hopping with you and I am looking forward to next month.

      Thanks, Claudia! You were the inspiration for the Technique Tuesday series, so thank you for that, too! Next month, mixed media…shaking in my boots!

  3. super cute cards! I can’t wait to find out more details about how you made them!

  4. nclights7 says:

    You did a great job on your cards! I can’t wait until Tuesday to see how you made them! 🙂

  5. Kim, your cards are awesome as always. Love how different they are.

  6. Ok, my friend, you outdid yourself. That first card is UH-MAZING! I can’t wait to hear the details. I love the papers you chose for the Merry card and the butterfly card is gorgeous! Great job, girl!

  7. Lynn McAuley says:

    That night skyline really caught my eye, Kim!! What an awesome card!!

    The baby wipe leaves and butterfly look sensational, too!

    WOW-ee! You did WAY better than I did! I got stuck at the “blob” part and that I couldn’t get alcohol inks (my ONLY available “re-inker” without purchasing something…) to stay we long enough to stamp. You rocked it totally! My fave is that skyline! AWESOME!

    • Kim&Katy says:

      LOL…what I didn’t show you is how many failed attempts there were to get one that would work. My Technique Tuesday video tells how I finally mastered the “blob”.

I'd love to hear from you. I so appreciate your comments!
