CAS Stencil Card Challenge Reminder: Baby Wipes

Already time for the CAS Stencil Reminder Challenge: Baby Wipes hosted by Julia!

There are beautiful and creative cards by our DT and wonderful Guest Designer
Sarah (Funky Fossil)! Be sure and check out the challenge blog.

You still have until the 24th to play along.

Enjoy my card!

I placed my new ARTplorations "Art Flowers 1" Stencil designed by Sanna over
Strathmore Mixed Media paper and secured on left side with masking tape, 
so I could open like a book to check out my sponging of Distress Oxide Inks.

I used DOX Inks: Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, and Abandoned Coral.  
Adding the colors light to dark with my makeup brushes.  

When satisfied with the colors I used a baby wipe over the stencil to give the
inks a lighter and more blended color appearance.
I really liked the results.

When dry I trimmed the background with the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running
Stitch Rectangle Nesting Die.  Then added the STAMPlorations
Clear Sticker "Hey, Sunshine" sentiment.

Punched a butterfly out of leftover background and shaped with stylus
and added pearls,  popping up with dimensional.

Then added a few sequins and popped up with White Craft Foam onto
SU Whisper White 100# cardbase and Done!

Hope you get to play along too with the baby wipe stenciling challenge.  Hugs..

  1. I love how you used this technique for these fabulous blooms, Nancy! Your color palette is so pretty and your butterfly is sheer perfection!

  2. Beautiful, my friend! What a great idea to use the baby wipe to blend your inks and just remove a little of the colour. A whole different way to use baby wipes! :) Your card is so pretty ... LOVE this colours (you knew I would!). The butterfly is a sweet finishing touch along with the sparkle from your sequins. xx

    1. I noticed when I looked to see what effect the baby wipe had on the stenciled images that it was blending the inks nicely, so only lightly touched up the images until I liked the results:-) Thank you for your sweet comment, Loll. Hugs..Nancy

  3. Such pretty blended colors on your stenciling Nancy - I can see flowers and I can also see an abstract design - so lovely! Love the stitched outline and popped up butterfly! xx

  4. So pretty, Nancy. Another great colour palette. Love how you softened and blended the colours with a baby wipe. Thanks for the inspiration. x

  5. I love the fresh autumny feel of your card Nancy, and a cool way to use the baby wipes, nice colours and the little butterfly and bling a finishing touch, hugs Robyn

  6. What a fabulous technique, Nancy. Your colors look fab and I love that stencil. I always learn so much visiting you and your creations area always a delight. Hugz

  10. This is sensational, Nancy!! I love the colors and love the process you described for using the baby wipe for shading purposes! Awesome!! Hugs, Dolly

  11. What a striking effect from that fabulous stencil. Great colours Nancy and a great effect from the baby wipe. Stunning card x

  12. Still need to figure out where I put those baby wipes... This looks wonderful in its autumn colors, Nancy!

  13. What a pretty and unique card, Nancy! Love the artsy flower stencil design, the color combo, and the soft "baby wipe" effect on the stenciled image! Tilting the panel echoes the random direction of the flowers, and the tiny beautiful (great color matching!) butterfly adds dimension and interest to the card. Hugs.. Hideko
