In order to create the flower for this card I used the Baby Wipe technique. Although Splitcoaststampers has a tutorial for this technique I decided to create one as well because I added a little twist which involves embossing a dye-based ink image. When you do the baby wipe technique, as far as I know, you have to use dye inks because they are thinner and spread better.
Step 1: Choose at least 3 different colors of re-inkers – a light, a medium and a darker shade. For this card I used Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Rose Red and Purely Pomegranate. Lay out two sheets of baby wipes (one on top of the other) on a plastic plate or other non-permeable surface.
Step 2: Starting with your darkest color, place a few drops randomly spaced out onto the baby wipe.
Step 3: Repeat with the next ligher color (Rose Red), then the Regal Rose, and finally, fill in all the white space with the lightest color (Pretty in Pink).
Step 4: Ink up your stamp on the baby wipe "palette" you created – just like you would on a normal ink pad. I like to tap the stamp several times on the baby wipe to make sure that the stamp is inked all over.
Step 5: Stamp the flower onto Whisper White CS – leave the stamp in place, then position the stamp-a-ma-jig with the corner of the stamp as shown.
Step 6: Holding the stamp-a-ma-jig in place so that it doesn’t shift, remove the stamp and clean it – this is what your image will look like.
Step 7: Ink up your cleaned stamp with Versamark ink.
Step 8: Carefully holding your stamp-a-ma-jig in place, align the wood block in the corner of the stamp-a-ma-jig as shown, and stamp.
Step 9: Sprinkle on clear embossing powder and heat emboss.
Step 10: This is what your image will look like embossed. Using the same baby wipe palette you created, repeat this entire process two more times.
Step 11: Cut out each of the flowers as shown – for one of them, just the center, for the second cut away the outer layer of petals, and for the third, cut out the entire flower.
Step 12: Place a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back of the smallest flower and attach to the medium sized flower (being sure to align the petals). Take your 1/8" handheld punch, punch a hole through the center of the two sandwiched flowers. Place a rhinestone brad through the hole, then mount to the largest flower using Stampin’ Dimensionals. You’re done!
