Baby Wipe

by Beate Johns

Add drops of re-inker onto a baby wipe and create multicolored images.

Supplies

  • Baby wipe

  • Two or Three Dye Re-Inkers

  • Craft sheet or paper plate

  • Solid stamp, (Flourishes Fanciful Flourishes used here)

  • Neutral cardstock

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Fold the baby wipe in half, then fold in half again. Place on a craft sheet or paper plate.

  2. Step 2

    Starting with the darkest color of re-inker, start adding drops of it on the baby wipe.

  3. Step 3

    With the second re-inker, add more drops to the wipe.

  4. Step 4

    With the lightest colored re-inker, fill in all the white spaces you have left on the baby wipe.



  5. Step 5

    Ink up the stamp using this makeshift inkpad.

  6. Stamp the image on cardstock.

  7. Step 6 (Optional)

    If you have a two-step stamp set, stamp the second image over the solid one for a more detailed look.

  8. Step 7

    Finish your project.

Variations

  1. Try detailed stamps
    When working with outline stamps, use ornamental ones and keep your color combinations monochromatic.

  2. Striped Wipe
    Try creating a striped background with baby wipes. Check out our Striped Wipe tutorial.

Laura - There's a link at the top for the stamps.

Beate - Great idea! Can the baby wipe ink pad be used more than once? I'm wondering if storing it in a ziplock bag or something would make it last longer.

Jen,
You might be able to use it several times. I haven't tried that yet. Sorry.
Thanks for telling Laura about the link.

Gorgeous butterfly, thanks for sharing. I'm guessing the baby wipes are alcohol free? Thanks

Leanne,
Yes, use alcohol free baby wipes.
Hugs and smiles

Love the butterfly thanks for sharing. Are there clear rubber stamps set that are specifically for layering like that ( one solid and one pattered?) If so what would they be called? I've been looking online, but can't seem to find many.

This is a great way to use up wipes that I have laying around. But, I do not know where I can get reinkers. Are they sold in just your regular stamping store? I am new to stamping, so I do not know where to find everything just yet. Thanks!!!

Deanne,

You can get the reinkers at most craft stores. They are usually in the isle with rubber stamps and stamp pads.

I love the looks of this technique. Thanks so much for sharing it. I am having trouble getting a good image on regular cardstock. I can make it work better on glossy-but I'd like to use regular cardstock like you have shown. Any tips?
