Stampin Valentines

Good morning everyone,

This year I sent Valentines to some of my friends. I don't stay in touch as much as I would like with many of the amazing ladies that have touched my life one way or another. So if I missed you this year please forgive me. Know that I am very grateful for your trust and friendship and never EVER take it for granted.

Hope you find some down time to create beauty and even better call a friend and say thanks for being there. :)

Have a beautiful day..just because. Not because someone gave you flowers, r because someone called. Be ok, be happy with who you are and celebrate life and the people around you no matter if you got a card, a gift or a kiss. It is a day to be thankful for all. I am thankful for today and I choose to be content no mater what today brings. Enjoy who you are…you are a gift to many!

Did you see the double stamping on the crocodile.
I used the chevron stamp from My Paper Pumpkin to stamp off some color
 before I actually stamp it. That's called the kiss technique. See below.

I loved how watering this with a damp paper towel brought the letters out even more. 
I just "clean it" with a paper towel…taking off some of the card stock fibers. 
It will warp a bit but you can bring it back straight before you adhere to the base.

Kiss technique:

* Ink your preferred stamp with the ink color you like. Choose a solid image instead of a linear one. Like my Zoo Babies croc.
* Kiss that inked stamp on a clean (not-inked) design stamp. In this case I used a chevron stamp that came in the 'Hello to you kit' from My Paper Pumpkin.
* Now, stamp your image on your card stock. It will be impressed with the chevron design on it. ;)

I found this on my Demo Website: seems what I did was actually "Reverse Kissing". Lol!!

1) Ink a patterned stamp, such as one of our background stamps.

2) Press a solid, uninked stamp against the patterned stamp, transferring the pattern to the solid stamp.

3) Stamp the solid image on card stock.

  • After completing Step 2, the patterned stamp can also be used for a "reverse kissing" look.
  • Before completing Step 2, you could ink your solid stamp image with a lighter color.
