30 Day Gratitude Challenge: Day 28 (SSINKspiration Technique Challenge #SSINKTC39)

Good morning and Happy Monday!  Hopefully you had a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  I always love this weekend but it also officially kicks off all of the Christmas bustling that can sometimes get overwhelming so it's good to just relax and enjoy while we can.  Today it's time for another technique challenge over on the SSINKspiration blog and this month we're showcasing the Baby Wipe Technique.  I'll admit I've heard of this technique but I've never used it before so this was fun to try out and I decided to do one more fall themed card to close out the season.

I started with Cajun Craze cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Soft Suede cardstock as a mat for the Delightful Dijon cardfront.  On this layer I started by stamping the grain image from the Wetlands stamp set using Delightful Dijon ink and some were stamped off one so there was different levels of shading.  The greeting is from the same stamp set and was stamped in Soft Suede ink.

To make the leaf I took a baby wipe and added several dots of reinker using Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon, Rich Razzleberry, and Soft Suede ink and then took the large leaf from the Vintage Leaves stamp set and used the inked baby wipe to ink the stamp and then stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. I'll admit I took several tries stamping the leaf to get the one that I liked so this does take some practice but it's fun and you get a different look each time.  Then I took the Big Shot and cut out the leaf using the Leaflits Framelits.  I used the same framelit to cut out another leaf using Soft Suede cardstock and then then embossed it with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  Layering both leaves helps elevate it and then I added a knot I tied using Rich Razzleberry Ribbon from the 3/8" Trio Ribbon Package.

This card is so pretty and I love how all the colors blend and complement each other.  This was also the first time using this stamp set and the greeting is lovely!  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing using this technique and then we would love for you to join us and play along and share what you create using this technique.
