Paint your Own Sunset With Baby Wipes


Create a beautiful sunset with Baby wipes.  That's right with baby wipes, ink refills and glossy white card stock you can create a sunset or sunrise.  This evening's walk inspired me to try to duplicate the setting sun.  The sky was painted with a muted blue, blushing pink and a bit of purple.  It looked like God had been finger painting.

Lovely As A TreeBaby Wipe Technique:

  1. Start with Glossy White Card Stock.  It's as smooth as a baby's bottom.
  2. Stamp your focal point using Stazon ink.  Stazon ink is made for stamping on non-porous surfaces and glossy white card stock is not porous.
  3. Next, apply drops of ink going up one side of a baby wipe that has been folded to approximately the same height as your card stock.  Tonight's sky was painted with Blushing Bride, Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze and Sahara Sand.  Experiment and choose the color that are right for your sky.
  4. Rub the inked baby wipe across your Glossy white card stock to paint your sky.  It may take a couple of swipes.  Allow to dry thoroughly.

Ask me how-Is there a technique that you would like to see featured?  Just ask me how in the comments of this post.

Have a fabulous weekend,

So, How's Your Hooters?


Isn't this "How's Your Hooters card" just too stinkin' cute?  A friend and a Stamping Country team member, Carol Denison, sent this charming little owl to me yesterday for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  

Her Message inside:

  • Hey Girlfriend...
  • October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • So, how's your HOOTERS?
  • Please take  care of yourself and do your exams.
  • I give a HOOT about you.

What a bright spot in my day! Thanks, Carol.
