Have you ever heard of the kissing technique?We’re not talking about the technique with your sweetie-we’re talking about the one with stamps! Check out this sample featured in this video, see how the butterflies have an extra texture? It’s the beautiful product of two stamps getting together!
Wasn’t that fun! How did you like the finished cards … so cute. Here is the card that I created using the “Kissing” Technique:
Now for my card …
I thought it would be fun to add a little “kiss” to the frosting on the cupcakes from the “Build a Cupcake” stamp set and kissed it to the “Hello Doily” stamp. I inked up the the frosting of the cupcake and kissed it to the Doily to create the neat pattern you see.
Of course I then had to pull out the coordinating punch “Cupcake Builder”. Ahhh, so much easier than cutting them out. My color pallet for today comes from the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper: Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar … with a touch of Strawberry Slush added in!
I added a touch of the Retro Fresh DSP and topped it off with the Coastal Cabana Ruffled Stretch Ribbon. Speaking of “topping” things off… I colored 3 of the larger pearls with a red Sharpie, and the put them on my cupcakes.
Finally, my greeting comes from the Perfectly Penned stamp set. I don’t know what I will do when they retire that set… I use it all the time!
Hope you take the time out of your busy day for a little kissing 🙂
