Stamping Kissing!

Sounds like a perfect technique for a heart stamp, right?
I love the heart from the Happily Ever After set. It's just the right size. I inked it up with Cranberry ink (retiring 31 Jan!) and then "kissed" it...when I say "kissing" I just mean you ink up your solid stamp with pigment ink and then tap with another fine lined stamp or texture.
Above I used an elegant damask, a music score background, some texture stamps (do you recognize Rock Star in there?), florals (my favorite, Marvelous Marigolds!), and the thin lined on the bottom left is just from stamping once on peeled cardboard! The combination is endless!
I cut out some of the hearts and spread them out on a leftover piece of slate woodgrain paper from a•muse studio. I added a piece of onyx twine and stamped just a portion of my "with love" sentiment on a tiny sizzix oval tag.
Quick and super easy! :)
Don't miss out on this set or inks - after Jan 31 the retired items will no longer be available.

I like the stamp kissing technique.

This is the perfect stamp for that technique - I love to do simple cards with textured hearts, but I don't have any stamps to make ones like this - very tempting!
