How I used the Kissing Technique with the Daisy Garden Stamp Set -World Card Making Day- Stampin' Up

I created this video to share during World Card Making Day on Oct. 2 2021. I am sharing this tutorial along with many other paper crafters for a whole day of card making over on Facebook – check it out!

Today I am sharing an oldie but goodie – the kissing technique. I hope to inspire you to use it in new ways. I decided to use the Daisy Garden Background Stamp because the beautiful flower images make a quick and easy focal point for my card. I used the large circle from the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set to pick up the ink from the Daisy Garden and transfer it to my paper. The greeting comes from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. I hope these cards inspire you to create something simple and beautiful today.

1- Begin by inking up the Daisy Garden Stamp with Memento Black ink. Add the large circle image from Watercolor Shapes upside down to a clear block, this will give you a smooth surface to pick up the flower image. Press the circle onto the inked Daisy Garden Stamp so you pick up some flowers and have a couple flowers that can “break” outside of the circle.

Stamp this in the bottom left area of the white cardstock.

2- Clean the circle stamp. Then press it again (without reinking) over one of the flowers that will “break” outside the circle. Use a baby wipe to remove any other images around this one flower. See video for example. Line up the flower with the flower on the cardstock and stamp. You will get a darker image inside the circle or it may not line up perfectly, this is okay.

3- Clean the circle again, and repeat for a second flower if you want.

4- Color in the flowers with Stampin’ Blend Markers. I used bot the Dark & Light Cajun Craze for the center of the flowers. And Dark Daffodil Delight & Light So Saffron for the petals. Light Mossy Meadow for the stems and veins on the leaves, then Light Granny Apple Green for the leaves.

5- Emboss the Gold Shimmer Vellum with the Macrame 3D Folder and add to the center of the cardbase. Layer the Cajun Craze behind the stamped white cardstock at an angle and add to the right bottom area of the cardbase.

6- Tear one side of the ½” strip of Cork paper and add it to the bottom area of the circle. Make sure a little of the circle is showing underneath. Stamp your greeting and fussy cut out. Add above the cork strip with dimensionals. If there is a second part stamp and trim down, then place over the cork strip.

7- Tie a bow with 10” of Linen Thread and add to the bottom right area of the Cork strip.

All Done!
