This month we are playing with the baby wipe technique and you won't want to miss the amazing and fun cards we've got for you today.

We really love feedback, so please leave a comment on each of the blogs in today's hop.  Each comment on the 12 hops throughout the year will be entered into a drawing for a $25 or Stampin' Up gift certificate (Winner's Choice).

Now on with the projects.  I have three cards for you today.  I used two different techniques, the first was the creation of a striped background for technique piece on my card and the second, which I used on all cards, was to create my own stamp pads using re-inkers and a blend of color.  I will admit I'm on the fence about the stripe technique (will have to try it again), but the stamping technique.  Such soft colors - I just love how these turned out. 

So card number one has that striped technique piece which I cut using a banner die and created a layered tag.  The second tag has my stamped design which was stamped using the re-inker/baby wipe technique. 

 The soft colors are amazing.  Two other things I love . . . I added to my Christmas card stash and the stamping matches the striped background.  Yes - make your own stamp pad and it's all matchy-matchy! 

Card number two used the same colors, but a completely different stamp. 

I love the blending of the pinks in this card.  It looks like a watercolor piece, but it was super simple.  

 And card number three included some different color combinations.  I just love how this one turned out.  It truly looks like a watercolor painting. 

The key on this one is different shades of re-inkers.  There are two greens.  A blue, a purple, and then some brown and purple for the flower centers.  

I hope you'll try this technique, as you can really achieve some beautiful results. 

Next up is Sharon.  If you do get lost along the way, I've included the full line-up below.

  1. Your cards are just beautiful, Debbie. That first card is such a clever use of the banner dies. Really eye catching. The love the dainty look of your second card...amazing how the same colors can look so unique on each card. I love that third card, too, those darker colors add real drama. As always, I enjoy hopping with you and look forward to seeing what you create each month.

    1. You are so sweet. And I am equally inspired by all of you each month.

  2. Debbie, wonderful cards! I love the watercolor look on them too. Amazing cards and I didn't even think of using the baby wipe technique with my stamps...I have to try this version for sure, but first I have to get a few more re-inkers. I am with you on the stripe technique...not sure I like that one so much, but overall a fun project. As always, it is so much fun hopping with you. Can't wait to see next months projects.

  3. beautiful cards! I have to try this technique!

  5. Fabulous cards, Debbie. I love the last one in particular but they are all really great. Such a great job!

  6. Truly beautiful cards! I love the blending and the different shades/tones of colors. Such a great job. Thanks for being a hop-buddy!
