Kissing Technique Card Share …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

It appears I ran into some technical problems yesterday and my post didn’t show up when expected. Hopefully everything is back to normal!

Today I have a card to share with you that illustrates the kissing technique. Hope you got the chance to watch the video yesterday (or this morning!). I chose the “I Think You’re Great” stamp set from the new catalog. It has the perfect stamps for the kissing technique.


I inked up my cloud in Marina Mist and “kissed” it to the scalloped pattern stamp … It makes the cloud look a bit fluffier! The beautiful sun comes from the “Kinda Eclectic” stamp set and the greeting from our Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set “Sprinkles of Life”.

I used the new Silver Metallic Thread to create my silver lining behind my cloud. I think it turned out pretty cute.

From this angle you can see that I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop us the front of my card…. just a little added dimension.


As for the Kissing Technique Tip … If you’re working with a larger solid image in a lighter shade, you can kiss it to a more detailed image inked up in a color that is darker than your solid.  For example … use the solid balloon from “Celebrate Today” and kiss it with “World Map” or “Corner Garden”.  Play with it and have some fun!

Till tomorrow … have a great day.

Thanks for stopping by ~



Tickled Pink …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Eileen and I have been busy creating boards for the annual Hostess Appreciation Party.  By “boards” I mean that we showcase several stamp sets at the event, and then create about 5 different cards for each board … then we raffle them off!

Everyone loves seeing the different cards and how versatile the stamp sets are. Create * Inspire * Share!

OK … why am I telling you this?  Because I just had to share one of the cards that will be posted on the “Flamingo Lingo” board.  Each year I highlight the Ronald McDonald House Exclusive stamp set,  because $3 from each stamp set sold goes to the Ronald McDonald Charity Houses.  Great Cause … great stamp set!


Now … Isn’t this just too cute!

My flamingo is stamped in Strawberry Slush and highlighted with a Coastal Cabana scallop and twine bow.   The cute flower in this stamp set, coordinates with the Petite Petals Punch.


Stampin’ Tip of the Day: Pretty Pearls … in any color!  Our new Blendabilities markers work great for coloring our pearls, rhinestones, and even our buttons!  Watch for upcoming “Blendabilities” classes.

I wanted to bring in that touch of “Florida” so I added the big bright shining sun from the “Kinda Eclectic” stamp set.  Warms it up nicely … don’t you think!?

Picture this ….I wanted to use my “On Film” Framelit die, and just love the way it frames our flamingo.


I hope you enjoyed today’s card share, and consider purchasing the “Flamingo Lingo” stamp set.
