Oldies technique #9 -- Kissing

Welcome to my blog! It is time for another Oldies technique. I have had so much fun revisiting these techniques. This technique is called "kissing" because you "kiss" one stamp to another. I love the beautiful designs that you can get with this. I am entering this card in the Party Time Tuesdays challenge and Penny's Paper Crafty challenge.

Here are the supplies you will need:

large solid stamp and 2-3 smaller solid stamps
3-4 colors of pigment inks ( I used gold, brown and blue )
white or cream card stock

Turn the large stamp rubber side up. Stamp the lighter color all over the stamp.

Using pigment ink helps you buy time as you ink up the other stamps since it stays juicy longer. Take a smaller solid stamp and ink it up. Then stamp it on the large inked stamp. I stamped my smaller stamp partially on the pear and turned it around and stamped it again somewhere else on the pear so as to use up all the ink on the small stamp. You can also give a tiny twist to the small stamp as you stamp on the large one. This gives a little more interest to the piece.

Now take the other solid stamp and do the same thing using a different color. 

This is the final look of the pear.

Now it is time to stamp the pear onto the card stock. This is how it looks! Cool huh!

I want to make more images. This is so easy and fun! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

How beautiful your designs and colors are, April! I cannot say enough how much I enjoy that you revisit your "oldies techniques" - they are so fun, and you know what? What's old is new, right? Wonderful creation, and even more wonderful, is your tutorial! It's pinned!

I am beginning to feel a little better. Still difficult to use my fingers, as my hand-eye coordination is very poor, and the fatigue is exhausting! LOL But I can sit up now for brief periods of time, and enjoy doing some things around the house. I have missed you and your pretty cards very much. love, de
