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.

Technique Tuesday … Kissing Technique & Video

Hello Stampers ~

Today is my second post for Technique Tuesday.  I will be sharing a Stampin’ Up! video tutorial along with my card share… yes, I will have a card for you too.  I thought it would be a great way to for you to see how the technique is actually done… almost like being a member of my Technique Club.

I’m going to start with a Stampin’ Up! video that introduces you to the “Kissing Technique”.  Enjoy!

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!
