Technique Thursday: Stamp Kissing technique

It’s been a while since I published a “Technique Thursday” post, but I have one for you today! This technique is called the Stamp Kissing technique because you press one stamp on to the other one, like if they were kissing! 😉 before stamping your card stock.

I used the beautiful stamp set “Festival of Trees” from the Holiday catalogue, combined with one stamp from the “Everything Eleanor” stamp set.

Festival of Trees Kissing technique

Directions:

  1. Ink a solid image stamp with the lightest color ink. I used Pistachio Pudding ink for the “background stamp”.

  2. Ink a detailed stamp (tree) with the darkest color ink.  I used Garden Green ink.

  3. Stamp one stamp onto the other. (For this particular card, I stamped the tree image a few times on the other stamp.)

  4. Stamp your solid image on card stock.

To finish the card, I stamped the tree one more time on top. I added little dots of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling details to decorate the tree. I stamped the greeting “Merry Christmas” (from Petite Pairs stamp set) in Garden Green. The background is embossed with Perfect Polka Dots folder. I used a strip of “Trim the Tree Designer Series paper stack“over a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock.

  1. Trop cool! Et portant si simple! J’aime aussi le stamp and roll ou tumets l’encre pâle et ensuite tu roules lesbords dans un encre plus foncé. C’est super pour les fleurs.
