Pucker Up

"Kissing" is the technique at H2H this week!  Yes, I am going to show you how I "kiss".  For those who are not familiar with "kissing" in the papercrafting world, it is a stamping technique, really.  Basically it is inking up a stamp and touching it to another stamp to transfer the image from one to the other then stamping the image onto the project.

My "kissing" technique is used on the inside of my card on the TOKEN ticket.  I used the back of the cross-hatch pattern stamp from Tasty Treats as a base and from the same stamp set, I inked up the polka-dot square with Pear ink, stamped the polka-dot onto the back of the other stamp, then used the base stamp and stamped onto cardstock.  A very subtle polka-dot pattern in the shape of a ticket.

On the front of the card I used an "A-Door-Ables" which I modified slightly to make the frame. 


Paper:  Pear, Tulip, Hollyhock and White Daisy textured cardstock, pattern paper from Sophia.

Inks:  Blush, Hollyhock, Tulip and Pear stamp pads and Hollyhock marker.

Stamps:  Tasty Treats (TOKEN Ticket), Priceless Love Word Puzzle, Polka Dot Alphabet and Storytime Caps

Embellishments:  CTMH pink button assortment, Pear brad and button from mini-medley, Blush ric-rac and mint baker's twine.

Other:  CTMH 1 1/4" circle punch, Just Blooms II die (papertrey ink), Fillable Frames 1 (papertrey ink) and an EK flower punch (I cut petals apart for the leaves).
