Oo-LaLa! Kissing Technique!

In my final technique blog post based on the cards we made in last week’s class, I’m sharing an oldie-but-a-goodie…

The Kissing Technique

Everyone likes kissing – right?  And we {love} stamps… so this must be amazing!

Kissing stamps involves pressing them together before you stamp them on your project.  This leaves the imprint of one stamp on the other, creating a pattern or colour change within the main stamp.

For this card, we inked up the Stylized Birthday stamp in Smoky slate and the cross-hatched stamp from the You’ve Got This stamp set in Real Red.  We ‘kissed’ the birthday stamp onto the background stamp, transferring the red ink to the Happy Birthday sentiment.  Then we stamped onto our cardstock.

This technique is great in that each project ends up with a slightly different finish!

And different colour combinations will achieve a different look.

Have a play – it’s a great experiment in trial and error!
