Nature’s Prints

I love any stamp set that contains leaves or flowers so when I saw the Nature’s Prints Bundle, I knew I had to get it! For today’s projects I’ve just used the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set.

Nature's Prints Stamp Set

This set is the type of set I recommend to new stampers. It has imagery of leaves, flower and splats (everyone needs splats) plus a variety of sentiments.

Baby Wipe Technique

For today’s project I thought I’d incorporate a fun and easy technique – the Baby Wipe Technique. It’s fun and easy and uses items you probably already have on hand.

For this technique you will need …

  • Baby Wipes (just get the cheapest as they work perfectly)
  • a plastic tray or case (our Clear Stamp Cases are perfect otherwise those plastic trays from the Chinese takeaway work well
  • Ink Refills/Reinkers – choose 2 or 3 colours
  • Stamps – any will do but solid sentiments and flowers work well or distinktive stamps like Nature’s Prints also work really well.

The Cards

Here are the cards I’ve made for you today ..

Nature's Prints Duo

Don’t you love how these cards turned out? That fern stamped beautifully with the colours I chose. The colours I chose were Pacific Point, Balmy Blue and Pool Party for the technique and used Night of Navy Ink Pad for the sentiments.

Nature's Prints Leaves

I love how the ferns turned out on this card … all those colours!

To separate the foliage I did use a little piece of scrap note paper to mask the fern leaves to stamp the other foliage. This also gives the card depth.

I layered my stamped piece onto a Night of Navy mat and then popped some Glitter Organza ribbon around and into a knot. To finish off I added some Iridescent Rhinestones for some bling … or water droplets!

Baby Wipe Block

Nature's Prints Block

This card is a different way to use the Baby Wipe Technique. I actually used my Baby Wipe ‘palette’ to ink up one of my D blocks, spritzed it with a little water to get the colours to blend a bit and stamped it onto my Basic White cardstock. Instant Background! I then just stamped the two foliage stamps in Night of Navy and added the sentiment. Again, they are layered onto Navy cardstock and embellished with the Iridescent Rhinestones.
