OSAT Blog Hop - Designer's Choice



 Welcome to our monthly One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop!  We are a group of stampers from a fun facebook page and once a month we share something special for you!  A card and a project or 2 cards.  Lucky for you, I have 4 cards today :)  If you came from the very talented Marisa's page, thank you for stopping by!  Marisa wows me each month with her creativity.  You'll have to check out her project last month too!  This month we have added new ladies for the hop and our two guys (Justin and James) are taking the month off :)

Anywho, let's get to it!  This month's theme is Designer's Choice.  I wanted to do a technique to mix things up a bit.  Since I have 2 little ones in diapers, I have an excess of babywipes in the house.  If you haven't tried the babywipe technique - it's super simple! 
 

Lay a few layers of wipes down and randomly drop ink from your reinkers. Make sure the size of the ink spot is large enough for your stamp.  I chose the For All Things stamp set from the annual catalog.  (Don't forget that there are great holidays sets in there too!)  Once I had a big enough area to use, I stamped the leaf stamp on the babywipes.  This acts as your stamp pad.  Easy enough right?




 
By the end, my color wasn't as vivid as the first three cards.  But I still love them all!  The corrugated paper, washi tape and burlap ribbon are perfect fall accents.  The addition of the Expressions Natural Elements brings it all together.  Those little wooden words are so worth the price! $5 for 15 words?? A steal for sure!
 
I hope that you enjoyed all of my cards and continue on the hop!  Next up is the fun and talented Andrea P. :)  Can't wait to see what she has for us today!

  5. I love these Holly! This is the perfect set for the baby wipe technique and your leaves subtly beautiful and still very striking. I love the combination of elements that you've used to give your cards an earthy look full of texture and depth.
