Video: Kissing Technique

Have fun kissing beautiful patterned stamps onto the bold

 frame stamp in Wild at Heart to create new and different 

textured looks! This technique is so fun and versatile, you’ll 

be looking at all your stamps for kissing possibilities. The 

flowers and leaves in the coordinating Wild Flowers set are 

perfect for adding two step color to the frame, as well as 

create a matching accents for the inside of your card. Go 

bold with several colored ink pads to create a gradient effect,

 or stick with one color for a more subtle look. The tight 

weave of this patterned border in Pretty Patterns 2 is

excellent for kissing, as it creates terrific almost fabric-like 

texture as well as picks up a lot of the frame’s floral detail. 

Be sure to watch the video for a bonus product of a similar 

card with these same techniques and sets in earth tones!
