Kissing Technique!

Oh yes! This is as much fun as it sounds!  But probably not what you are thinking!

When you're a mad stamper, the kissing technique is something totally different to what you may imagine.  I have been digging around in some old cards, and found this fun pop-up that I made earlier last year.  The pop-up structure is very simple, but the effectiveness lies in the stamping.

Kissed Pop-up 

Take whisper white card, and a solid image stamp - in this case I used a flower image.  Ink up the stamp in a light colour - like So Saffron by Stampin' Up!, then before stamping, take another detailed line image stamp, ink that in a darker colour and stamp onto the inked solid stamp - this is "kissing" the solid stamp with the line image stamp. This gives you two lots of ink and a pattern on the solid image.  Now stamp onto the whisper white card and repeat until you have enough flowers to cut out for your card or scrapbook page.

For an alternative, ink up the solid image in the contrasting darker colour, this time I've used Tempting Turquoise, and I have "kissed" it with the detail stamp un-inked, allowing the second stamp to kiss off some of the turquoise, leaving white detail.

You can learn this technique and many more in my technique classes which will be starting up again in term 2 of this year.  Be sure to let me know if you'd like me to reserve a place for you.

Don't forget, the Stampin' Up! year finishes on 31st March, and the Summer Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration also end then. Don't miss out if you've got a favourite stamp set ear-marked in the summer mini which you haven't ordered yet. Order it today as they won't be available after next Wednesday.
