Have you tried the baby wipe technique with your stamps yet?
When I saw the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in the 2022 – 2023 Stampin’ Up!® catalogue, I knew straight away that the baby wipe technique was a MUST.

What you need
This Wave of Inspiration card uses a Pool Party base. A 14.2 cm x 10 cm piece of Basic White card is stamped with the wave using the baby wipe technique. The clouds and label are cut from Basic White card using the Waves Dies. The gulls are stamped using Basic Grey and the sentiment is stamped in Pacific Point. A piece of Pacific Point card is threaded through the label and wrapped behind the Basic White card front.
To prepare for the baby wipe technique, lay two or three baby wipes inside an open stamp case. Try to find the plain baby wipes without an embossed image. I used three re-inker colours: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point.
Baby Wipe Technique Card Recipe
It really is an easy card to make. Follow the instructions below.
- Onto the baby wipes that have been laid out inside an empty stamp case add lots of drops of Pool Party from the re-inker. As the ink spreads add drops of Bermuda Bay re-inker in the white spaces between the drops of Pool Party. In a few white areas of the baby wipe add drops of Pacific Point re-inker.
- As Pacific Point is the darker more dominant colour add more of the other colours and less of this colour to fill the white spaces.
- When the ink on the baby wipe has spread and there is no more white space, the baby wipe is ready to be used like an ink pad.
- Using the wave stamp from Waves of Inspiration stamp set, press it onto the baby wipe. Don’t move the stamp around, if you can avoid it. Really press down onto the baby white to get the wave completely inked up.
- Stamp the wave image onto the Basic White card front, about 2 cm up from the base.
- Clean your stamp and close the stamp case. The baby wipes should stay moist for further stamping over the next few days.
- Stamp the gulls in Basic Grey.
- Adhere the clouds to the card front.
- Take a strip of Pacific Point card that fits through the stamped label. Apply a dab of glue to the back of the label and thread the Pacific Point card through.
- Apply glue to the back of the Pacific Point strip and adhere to the card front, just along the bottom of the stamped image, centring the label.
- Fold the Pacific Point strip ends to behind the card front. Adhere in place.
- Adhere the card front to the card base using multipurpose glue.
This would make a great card to give to any ocean lover. It’s a little masculine which would be great for a guy. Here’s some other cards for guys that I have done.
Thank you for stopping by today. I am excited to explore ways you can save time and organise your card making supplies so that busy card makers like you can make more cards, more often. That’s what it means to be ‘eager to stamp’!
