Wednesday’s Card: Kissing Technique

Kissing Technique

Good Morning All!!

Hope you’re having a great week! This week’s card was actually pretty simple to make – not too many steps at all. I created the background using the kissing technique, where you ink up two stamps with different colors and then kiss them together before stamping on paper.

You’ll notice that I finished off my card with a black sentiment. After I turned off the camera and cleaned up, it just kept bothering me. I really didn’t like it at all. That night, I couldn’t stand it anymore. I went back into my craft room and put some Versamark over it and added white embossing powder. Because I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig, it was really easy to re-do the sentiment. I felt so much better after that fix, lol!

I’ve received quite a few emails from people saying they are not receiving emails anymore when I make a post. I upgraded the software I use after last week’s post, so I’m hoping that solves the problem. If not, I’ll start looking into different software. Sorry about that!

One more thing – I’ve been trying to find a shopping site to send you to that has decent prices AND the vast majority of products I use. Well, I have found Scrapbook.com to be pretty good. They seem to have a bunch of the products I am using, plus their prices are pretty good. So, I signed up to be an affiliate for them. What does that mean? It means that if you link to their site using the URL’s in my supply list, I get a small portion of the sale. Sorry for all the back-and-forth on my links. I’m still trying to figure it out!

Enjoy the video. 🙂

    How would u put this in an envelope with out the pretty ribbon getting smooshed?

      Hi Van, the ribbon is very soft and not very tall. It comes rolled up on a board, so it’s already smooshed but springs up pretty quickly. I mailed it without any problems.

    Cool technique… I have a new assignment to try!!!TFS!!

  3. Really a good video with very clear instructions and focus on the details. hank you so much for your time and effort.!

  4. Your card further confirms that spring is in the air! Who’d think central Wisconsin would be in the mid-30’s this time of year – – blooms and butterflies are “just” around the corner . . .
    Thanks for continuing to share your talent ~~~~~

  5. I wanted to post separately about the shopping site, and comment now on your card, which I love. The white is much prettier, I think. Kudos to you for re-doing it.

  6. I have repeatedly tried ordering from Scrapbook.com, but they have way too many things out of stock all the time. Joann.com as well. They should notate it much better but they do not. Very irritating. Just letting you know…

  7. Very pretty, I often forget to use this technique so it comes as a good reminder. I haven’t been getting your update messages either for a few weeks and only just realised. Hope the update works for us all.

  8. I glad I finally made it to your site today! I absolutely love this card!!!! Yep, I like the white as well! Much, much better than the black! I didn’t get my usual email either today alerting me to another Wednesday’s Card that I soooo look forward to each week. I have faith you’ll get the kinks worked out. Scrapbook.com is a wonderful site so you did good in choosing it to be affiliated with! 🙂

  9. This is a terrific card. Very versatile and, once again, your color sense makes it perfect.

  10. I love this, really came together nicely, I have to agree the white setiment looks better!

  11. This is such a pretty card! Thanks for the tutorial! I always forget about the kissing technique but I love the results. The white definitely pops. I’m definitely going to have to get that flower ribbon! Thanks again!

  12. I like the white better too.
    Another wonderful card.
    Eveline.
