Leaves for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! This month’s blog hop is dedicated to leaves. As the weather begins to cool, the leaves begin to change colors and fall from the trees. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, using Soft Seedlings, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The first thing I thought of for this blog hop was the Soft Seedling stamp set new in the mini catalog. it was begging for the baby wipe technique and since it is so easy to make multiple images with just one loaded baby wipe, I made a set.

Baby Wipe Technique

I’ve used this technique for years, and it seems mostly in the fall when laves are changing colors. Simply take a couple of wipes and lay them folded once on top of each other on a large stamping block. use your desired colors of reinkers and drop ink randomly on the pad of wipes. This will be your ’stamp pad’.

I used my stamparatus to position the soft seedling stamp just where I wanted it on my 3×3-1/4 piece of paper. By removing the stampartus plate I could easily ink up my stamp on my pad of wipes, then reinsert it and stamp. I easily got four images without having to reink my pad. You can see how perfectly the veins are visible on the leaf.

The colors I used were Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight, a wonderful combination of fall colors. I used Daffodil Delight gingham but several other sheets from the Gingham Cottage could be used with slight variations of the colors.
