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 ~
