Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you! Aren’t these colorful Fall leaves so real looking? I love how each one comes out different and they are just so stunning!
This technique is super fun and simple! All you need is a baby wipe and your favorite fall colors of Ink Refills!
I started with a Cajun Craze card base. Next, I took a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I actually stamped my greeting at the end but if you are concerned about leaving enough space, you can stamp it first. The greeting was stamped in Early Espresso Ink from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set. This stamp set is perfect for all year long. Check out these other samples I created using it here, here, and here!
Now for stamping the leaves. I took a regular baby wipe and unfolded it from all of the creases in the package. Then I folded it in half twice to create a rectangle/square. I placed mine in a clear mount stamp case but any sort of plastic surface or disposable plate would work. Then simply add drops of your favorite fall colors from Ink Refills. I used Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Always Artichoke.
This is now the ink pad that I used for stamping the large and small leaf from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set. I stamped the images all around the left hand side, top and bottom! Once I had all the leaves I wanted, I added some Old Olive Mini Chevron Ribbon to the bottom. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added it to the card front. The card at the top was done with a knot and the one below I just added a strip of the ribbon. Which do you prefer?
This new “ink pad” that was created can stamp tons of leaves before drying out or using it all up. Mine was actually still wet and usable the next day even! Of course every time I create a new “ink pad” it comes out different. Sometimes I have more of one color and other times I have a big splotches of color. I just love that crackle look from the texture on the baby wipe and the colors blending together!
