Tilth Floral Wipe Swipe

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by.

I'm home again after enjoying a week with sweet, funny, talented friends.

I've been playing with those Baby Wipes again.  There's so many things we can do with them!

This time I followed Jennifer McGuire's lead and used Distress Re-inkers
on a baby wipe to make stripes of color.

I folded a baby wipe to fit on the edge of an acrylic block and
fastened it with a rubber band.  I added a few drops of  Spun Sugar re-inker to
one side of the wipe, a few drops of Worn Lipstick and a few drops of
Picked Raspberry.  Then I swiped it across some paper.

I found that Mixed Media paper works best, but I did some swipes on Neenah
and it worked okay.  I got several pulls of color with my wipe and by
spritzing with water, I got lighter colors.

My friend Heather Telford is helping to launch a new challenge at
I've used the three shades of pink. (I hope it's okay to use three shades of one color.)


At The Flower Challenge this month they're asking for
Embossing the colored panel helped with any warping ;-)


My mixed media are Baby Wipe Swiping, Stamping, Dry Embossing and Die Cutting

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

With all the baby wipes we went through at the retreat we should have tried this. Great effect Bonnie and I love the card.

What a wonderful card Bonnie - love your "wipe swipes"!! The new look to your blog is beautiful too!

Mac Mable said...

So glad you enjoyed your crafty week with your friends...and it sounds like a huge amount of fun x
Such a pretty card with a fun technique. The texture from the dry embossing looks fabulous and so does the pretty die cut flower. Thanks for the tip about the mixed media card x
Your blog header looks so fresh and really pretty Bonnie x

Loving the new blog header Bonnie!
The textured background makes the colours really stand out and your flower looks fab! Great card. x

Love this card! The 3 "happy" colors on the lattice EF (which is my fave and most used SU one) look so good. Played with baby wipes techniques yesterday and had fun. Want to try this version today...folded wipe on acrylic block with rubbber band sounds easier than a version I tried.

Love your card and the pretty colors and the embossing. Love the flower too. I have to try this technique.
Your blog header is lovely. Glad you had a wonderful time with at the retreat with your friends. I know you made lots of fun things.

Heather said...

WOW, I love those three colours paired with white. It is so fresh and happy. The stripes over textured paper add so much.

Susan said...

Another great use of baby wipes!! Love it! Such pretty shades of pink.

Loll said...

LOVE the swipes of shades of pink with the baby wipe Bonnie. Such a bright, summery card with the pretty flower die-cut. Great idea to dry emboss the card front to help with warping ... so clever! Had a wonderful time crafting together!! Your delicious coffee got us raring to go in the mornings! :) xx

Jo said...

I love the freshness of this card and your Blog's new appeal. I adore this die, I must take it out more often and follow your lead. These colours are delicious and bright. A BEAUTY xx

Bobby said...

The embossing makes your panel look like a warm and colorful afghan, Bonnie. The flower outline really lets that color show. I'm glad you had a great time, but then I knew you would.

The combination of the beautiful baby wipe swipes and the dry embossing is so interesting and unique, Bonnie! I love the white die-cut flower and the sentiment strip popping against the pretty pink ombre shades!
So glad to hear that you enjoyed the craft retreat!

Fantastic results with this other baby wipe technique, Bonnie. The ombré pink background works perfectly for the simp,e diecut flower. xx

I have yet to try this technique, Bonnie. I love how your baby wipe and DI's background turned out. You have me inspired, my dear friend. I am sure missing you and had the best time meeting you for the 1st time IRL!! I can't wait for next year's Retreat!. You are so talented, funny and your little Southern Accent too:-) Love and Hugs...

On this card, your ombre is more intense, but equally beautiful. It's great for the white flower.
