Striped Wipe

by Beate Johns

Create patterned background with reinkers and baby wipes.


  • Baby Wipe

  • Two or more Dye Ink Reinkers

  • Glossy Cardstock

  • Stamps

  • Ink


  1. Step 1

    Fold a baby wipe and add drops of reinker to the edge of the fold line.

    Here, the baby wipe was folding in half twice.

  2. If you want a multicolored background, continue to add more colors.

    For smaller stripes, add a small dot of reinker.
    For wider stripes, add longer stripes of reinker.

  3. Step 2

    Line the inked fold up with the edge of the glossy cardstock.

  4. Step 3

    Wipe the inked baby wipe over the glossy cardstock to create striped background.

  5. Step 4

    Add more color, linking up the inked wipe with the existing stripes to intensify and even out the colors.

    Continue to add color as needed.

  6. Step 5

    Apply ink to stamp and stamp directly over the background.

  7. Step 6

    Finish your card.



  1. Try the Tie Dyed Look
    Fold your baby wipe up into a triangle and add ink. Twist the baby wipe. Untwist, lay baby wipe over glossy cardstock and press down.

    Funky Retro
    Add several colors of reinker on your folded baby wipe. Swipe the wipe in a circle to create a spiral look (like in the Bouncing Brayer tutorial).

    Get creative
    Try different patterns like crosshatch, waves, plaids.
