1/4 How about we kiss twice?


One of the many fun stamping techniques that exist out there is the "Kissing Technique." Its where you ink up a background stamp with a darker color, and then using a bold stamp plain or inked up in a lighter contrasting color of ink . . . you "kiss" the stamps and create a look like you see in this flower card. I made this card for a clean and simple challenge over at SCS. The sentiments on this card are from a stamp set called Bring on the Cake which is featured in the new Occasions Mini (debuting today!!) Below is what the inside panel of my card looks like. I thought there might be a few questions about how I did this so I decided to make a video tutorial. This flower was "kissed twice" and I show you exactly how to do that in the video.


Here are the Stampin' Up Supplies I used:

Stamps: Petal Pizzazz, Woodgrain Background, Bring on the Cake (Occasions Mini)
Paper: Peach Parfait, Pumpkin Pie, Textured Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede, Peach Parfait
Accessories: Springtime Vintage Big Designer Button (Occasions Mini)
Adhesives: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Glue Dots

Great technique video! I wasn't sure about how the "kissing" technique was done, but your video was so helpful and showed me exactly what it is.
