The Baby Wipe technique is a great way to get multiple colors onto an image – it looks absolutely stunning when used with two-step stamp sets – here is a tree that I stamped using this technique…

Here is my tutorial so that you can try this technique – at the end of this tutorial you will find a printable version too so that you can print it out and keep it for reference.

It is a beautiful, versatile and easy technique to master and you will need just a few supplies to get started:

  • Stamp Set & cardstock
  • Ink Refills
  • Baby Wipe

Firstly gather your supplies together…

I used the stamp set Festival of Trees and three ink refills in the colors Old Olive, Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz…

Take the baby wipe and fold it in half, and then in half again – be sure to place the wipe onto a disposable plate because the ink will seep through the wipe and will stain the surface below it, so be sure to protect your work surface!

Take your first ink refill – this should be the darkest color that you are using (for me, that is Old Olive) and dot ink all over the baby wipe…

Take the second darkest color and repeat (for me, that is Wild Wasabi), filling in the gaps…

And finally take your lightest color (for me, that is Pear Pizzazz) and fill in the remaining gaps…

And this is what you will have…

Take your stamp & place face down onto the wipe just like you would if it were an ink pad…

Lift off and stamp down onto your cardstock…and this is the result…

This image is fab on it’s own but to add more, if you are using a two-step stamp set, go ahead and stamp over the image with another co-ordinating stamp – I used black ink to give a striking effect…
