Kissing Stamps

Happy Friday! It's Julissa of Paper Gems by Jules ready to inspire some inky fun! How about some stamp kissing? No, you don't kiss the stamps... they kiss each other and create a whole new look! For this technique, you'll need a stamp with a large flat surface. I used the Wild Poppy Silhouette stamp set as my canvas. Follow along to see how I made these kissing stamp cards.



Step 1. Ink up your background. I started with a light green ink by Rubbernecker Stamps and blended it into the background. It wasn't completely smooth, but that was okay. It adds a little texture to the background.



Step 2. Using your Misti stamping tool, I stamped the large flower using a semi dark green Rubbernecker Stamps ink. For some added texture, I added a darker green Rubbernecker Stamps Ink on the bottom of the flowers to add a shadow and restamped it.



Step 3 (a). Remove the paper and insert a detailed stamp (leaving the Wild Poppy Silhouette stamp on the Misit's door). I used Worn Music on the Misti base and inked it with VersaFine Clair in Acorn.



Step 3 (b). This is the part of the story where they kiss. Now close the Misti door and have the two stamps kiss. This will leave the impression of the inked stamp on the Wild Poppy Silhouette stamp set.



Step 3 (c). Replace the background stamp with the paper again and restamp the Wild Poppies. You'll see that the Worn Music stamp is now impressed into the floral image.



Step 4. Next, I added more texture by stamping the Worn Music over the entire piece, but only inking the edges with a light green. I aged the paper using brown ink on the edges. Lastly, why not add some gold splatters.



Step 5. Final stamp is the sentiment. I chose a sentiment from the March 2021 Kit of the Month that says "Let your soul bloom with happiness." Once that was stamped on it, I backed this piece on gold card stock and then adhered it to a beige card base.



Using this same technique, but a different background stamp called "Lace," this is another version of this same technique.



I hope you found some inspiration in this fun technique and get a chance to have you stamps kiss.


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a crafty day!!
