The other technique from last week's class was the "baby wipe technique". With this method, baby wipes are used as the stamp pad. Take a couple baby wipes, fold and use Classic Stampin' Ink Refills to drop colors randomly onto the baby wipe. Use 3-4 colors, filling in area that is slightly larger than the stamp being used. The inked baby wipe pad can be used a couple of times for stamping. It really is a simple technique, yet, produces a beautiful effect.
The first card made used the oak tree from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set and the sentiment is from Endless Thanks. Since Fall is arriving soon, colors were selected to mimic the leaves displaying fall foliage. Also, don't forget to stamp the interior - we used the oak leaves from the set to stamp an upper and lower corner.

The other card used the By The Tide and Sassy Salutations stamp sets along with three coordinating blue refill colors to ink the baby wipe for use stamping the coral. Though it's not evident in the card photo, Dazzling Details was used on the stamped fish. Even with a touch of glitter, this is a great card to send to a male.
