Techniques on Tuesday: The Kissing Technique

This technique allows you to add a pattern from one stamp to another stamp. There are a number of ways to achieve the kissing technique.

  • Kissing with one colour
  • Kissing with two colours
  • Kissing with a twist

Supplies that you will need: Two stamp images – one with a solid image and the other with a pattern. One or two ink colours, card stock and embellishments to finish your card.

Step by Step Instructions

Kissing with one colour

  • Ink up the solid image stamp with your chosen colour of ink.
  • Take the pattern stamp and bring the two stamps together, “the kiss”. The pattern stamp will remove some ink from the solid stamp but leave the pattern. See the leaf stamped image on the card below.
  • Now stamp your Solid image onto your card stock.

Kissing with two Colours

  • Ink up your solid image in the lighter coloured ink.
  • Take the patterned stamp and ink in a darker ink colour and bring the two stamps together, “the kiss”. This time the ink colour and patterned stamp will transfer to the solid image stamp. See the flower stamped image on the above card.
  • Now stamp your solid stamp onto your card stock.

Kissing with a Twist

  • Ink up your solid image in the lighter coloured ink.
  • Take the patterned stamp and ink in a darker ink colour and bring the two stamps together, “the kiss”. Before taking the two stamps apart twist one of the stamps in a circle. This time the two images and colours will blend giving you a marbled effect on the solid image stamp. See the stamped images on the card below.
  • Now stamp your solid stamp onto your card stock.
