Welcome to the August Technique Blog Hop
It’s month eight of our year-long adventure into different card-making techniques, folds and paper crafting products. This month we are using Baby Wipes for our cards so you won’t want to miss the amazing and fun projects we’ve got for you today.
We hope you got the chance to hop with us each of the previous month; but if you haven’t, it’s not too late to hop and comment to be entered into our prize drawing. If you missed the previous months, you can click on the month to be taken directly to the start of that month’s hop.
We really love feedback, so please leave a comment on each of the blogs in today’s hop and if you become a follower on my blog you will be entered in a card bundle give-away when I reach 100 e-mail subscribers (although my Networked Blogs and Bloglovin followers will be included in the drawing). Each comment on the 12 hops throughout the year will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Blitsy.com or a Stampin’ Up gift certificate (Winner’s Choice).
If you arrived here from my friend and fellow blogger, Lisa, you’re in the right place. If you came here first, you may want to start the hop at the beginning so you don’t miss anything and have the opportunity to comment to be entered to win. However you came to be here, I’m just so happy you’ve joined me today!
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”.
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.
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.
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.
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:
