Baby Wipe Swipe Technique Tutorial

 I'm gearing up for one of my largest events tomorrow - my Crafting at the Lodge Spring Retreat!  

This retreat theme is "Western" and I've rented a 10' U-Haul truck to transport the decor (on loan from a sweet  friend - thanks, Kellie!) and stamping supplies to our retreat location.  My retreat is a 10 hour day of pampering, inspiration, stamping, prizes, games and fabulous home cooked meals!  

I'll be sharing pictures soon!  Check out my Project PDF Tutorial library for some of the fabulous projects my customers are making!  

Today's tutorial includes a fun technique called "Baby Wipe Swipe".  Ohhh, that's a mouthful!

I've included the directions below for those of you on a mobile device. I also included a PDF tutorial if you'd like to save the directions for future use.  

Enjoy and happy Friday - I'm off to pack the U-Haul truck!

I'm mixing it up today with a little 'old' and a little new.  I've used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set "Hey, Chick" with the annual catalog stamp set "Marquee Messages" for a fun - and a little wild - card!

Last week I mentioned how I've had so much fun using the chicken images from this set to create all kinds of different cards.  Today's rendition is proof that this crazy bird can easily be a fun birthday card.

I embossed the Tempting Turquoise cardstock using the Sparkle Embossing Folder and then punched a 2" opening in the front.

I used the same circle punch to create the Whisper White layer for the chicken which I colored using markers.  Easy and fast!

The arrow and the sentiment come from the Marquee Messages stamp set. I thought that retro arrow played up that crazy bird perfectly!  

I'm sure you know a few 'rock stars' that would get a kick out of this card!  

Remember - Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st and free selections are only available while supplies last.

Succulents are Boo's favorite plants. She has several in her bedroom and they require little care. In her case - almost no care!

Although she hasn't stamped much lately, she does take time to look at each new catalog when it's released.  When the Oh So Succulent Bundle was introduced in the Occasions Catalog she urged me to get it.  

And for good reason. Have you seen some of the amazing 3D projects on Pinterest?!  Oh my!  You can create plants that look just like the real thing.  No watering, transplanting or sunshine required! 

Today's tutorial uses the Oh So Succulent Bundle (30 piece photopolymer stamp set and coordinating framelits). It's paired here with its coordinating designer paper and a little heat embossing for realism. 

I've placed the tutorial below for those of you on a mobile device.  I also have a PDF tutorial available if you'd like to download it and save it for future inspiration.  

Happy Friday everyone!
