Kissing Technique: Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture


Kissing Technique


It's that time of the week - Saturday! And that means we have a new Technique Challenge inside Stamping And Blogging.  It is the Kissing Technique!  I'm a featuring the Touch of Textures and Watercolor Wash stamp sets from Stampin' Up! with Pool Party and Emerald Envy ink! 



It's a one layered card, but had some texture and depth!  It could have been done in less than 10 minutes BUT the fussy cutting of the flowers takes some time LOL.


Card Instructions

  1. So you start with Whisper White card base and front.
  2. Ink the Watercolor Wash background stamp with Pool Party.
  3. Ink the textured longer stamp from Touch of Textures with Emerald Envy.  And then literally stamp (kiss) on the Watercolor Wash stamp.  Then repeat as many times as you want. I did about 5 times to cover the Watercolor Wash stamp.
  4. Then stamp on the card base.  You just did the Kissing Technique!!!!
  5. Next I stamped some flowers in Pool Party and Emerald Envy on scrap and did the outline in Basic Black (two step stamping).
  6. Then I cut them out.
  7. I also stamped some smaller flowers on the card base in black, outline stamps, not colored.
  8. Then wrapped some ribbon around the card.
  9. Next adhere the flowers with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  10. Add rhinestones if you'd like.
  11. Stamp the greeting on scrap and punch with the Banners punch.
  12. Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Card Supplies

Inks: Pool Party, Emerald Envy, Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White
Accessories: Banner punch, Rhinestone Jewels, 1/8" Silver Ribbon
Adhesive: SNAIL, Stampin' Dimensionals
Stamp: Touch of Textures, Watercolor Wash

Totally Techniques: Masking


Good morning stampers!  This month's technique is called Masking. Wait until you see the Totally Techniques Design Team in action this week!!!!



Stampin' Up! Balloon Builders

My card this week features the Balloon Builders stamp set by Stampin' Up!  It's the Masking Technique and one that you can do rather quickly as it's a one layer card!




Masking Technique

Covering previously stamped images, and then stamping over them/near them/around them so they appear in front and the newly stamped image(s) to the back.

Notice the multiple layers of balloons in my card.

Quick Steps On Making This Card

  • Vertical, top fold card, base in Whisper White.
  • Stamp the first few balloons in Flirty Flamingo.
  • Then stamp a few of the same size balloons on scrap and punch them out (with Balloon punch).
  • Then use those punched out balloons to cover the balloons you just stamped.
  • Then stamp more balloons in Tip Top Taupe with the larger balloon stamp in Balloon Builders.
  • Stamp the balloon strings in Tip Top Taupe.
  • Then stamp a few more balloons in different sizes on scrap using Daffodil Delight ink, and then punch them out.  Adhere to card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Stamp greeting in Tip Top Taupe.
  • You can leave as is or continue....
  • Using a Blender Pen (or you can use an Aqua Painter), color the background of the card in Soft Sky ink.
  • Add some bling with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
