Stamp Kissing Technique

Hello there, crafty friends. I’m back with another rainbow card using products from THIS new release…

I inked up the flowers and leaves from the Painted Flowers stamp set with a variety of Distress Oxide Inks. Before stamping the images on white card stock, I stamped them on to the Halftone background stamp. By “kissing” the stamps on to a background pattern, you get some great texture…

The kissing technique works well with solid image stamps so the pattern has surface area to show up. Also, you can stamp the background stamp that you kissed on to to get reverse images. I didn’t use those today, but it’s a great way to get multiple cards from one technique.

For the background, I dry embossed the Large Chevron Pattern stencil on to a kraft panel cut with this mini slimline die. It’s hard to see in the photograph, but gives another layer of texture…

After arranging all the flowers on the background and before adhering them in place, I picked them all up with some cling wrap. I did this so I could adhere them all down at once. It is such a time saver.

I finished off the card with a pre printed sentiment strip.

I hope this inspires you to try the “kissing” technique with your solid image stamps.
