Kissing - a tutorial!

Share |
Ahhh, can you feeeeel the luuuuuuuv? It's TIME to get SMOOCHING, stamping-style! Valentine's Day might already be history, but the stamping luvvvvvvvvv remains (and since I found my camera's battery charger, I can finally post the tutorial as promised).

Kissing is a fast & fun stamping technique. It's easy-peasy and you can get some great results...believe me, do a search for "kissing" on SCS and you'll see lots of fun examples (for instance, a really cute lampshade card by leslierich caught my eye!)

We incorporated kissing at my latest Stamp Club meeting using the Big Blossom SAB set + the Paisley background...well, all except for Miss Cheryl, who despises paisley with the heat of a thousand burning suns.

First I inked up my brayer with Rose Red ink and thoroughly covered the Paisley background with it.

Leaving the paisley rubber-side up, I took the uninked flower and pressed the 2 stamps together (*smoooooch*).

When you separate the two stamps, you can see that the pattern has imprinted itself onto the rubber of the flower. Bold stamps like this are EXCELLENT for kissing :)

I stamped the now inked-up flower onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock

Here's a completed card using the Big Blossom kissed with the paisley: while you can't really see it in the scan, we used Night of Navy Craft ink with Heat'n'stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter for some extra bling!

For more information on the classes and Stampers Club's I offer, please visit my official Stampin' Up! website HERE.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Wonderful Tutorial. Thanks for sharing. Once I get some background stamps I MUST try this. Thanks a bunch!!! -Samantha :-)
Interesting... I kiss the opposite way! I ink up my large stamp (the daisy) and stamp an uninked stamp on it to remove ink from the daisy.
Ohhh so cute! I'm so glad I'm finally getting the big blossom! Yay! :D
HAHA! Cheryl cracks me up with her overwhelming hatred of paisleys!!
OH! OH! OH! I could *kiss* you!!!! I finally understand the kissing technique. I think I learned how to do real kissing in 1951 when I was kissed in eighth grade; and that was on the playground at school. I wasn't allowed to single date until I was a junior in high school.
