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


  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.
