Quick and Easy Projects: Kissing Stamp Technique

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Kissing Technique is an easy way to combine your stamps and create unique designs for your stamping projects. Just select one solid design and combine it with another pattern and create different layouts.

Memento Lulu Lavender


Memento DewDrop – Grape Jelly

Card and Envelope Set

Full Heart Stamp 

Stripepddle Stamp by RG Avenue.

Directions

Select the stamps that you want to use and the colors of the ink. Use a light color for the solid image and dark color for the textured or detailed image. Place the stamps over different acrylic blocks and ink well with the corresponding ink. Here I selected a heart stamp and inked it with Memento in Lulu Lavender. Then I choose a stripe stamp and inked it with Memento in Grape Jelly.

Place one stamp over the other, touching the inked sides. You will notice how the stripe image is transferred into the solid heart image. When you are using a waterbased ink like Memento this transfer will happen very smoothly.

If you decide to use a dark color for the solid image, don’t apply ink to the detailed image, just kiss them and you will see how it take off the color from the solid stamp. Stamp the image over your card stock layer and finalize your card stamping a coordinating sentiment.
