Technique Blog Hop - Kissing Is For Stamping

For the February CTMH  Blog Hop, we are featuring the Stamp Kissing Technique.  If you are coming from  Priscilla Gotham's Blog  you are on the right track.  In case you get lost, you can get a complete list of participants at the bottom of Melissa's blog. This month we have 11 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the stamp kissing technique along with a variety of our great CTMH products. To enjoy this hop is quite simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  Here we go! 
Of course kissing is for romance, love and Valentines; so this technique is a perfect match for February.  If you have never seen this technique used before, you can google the technique on "You Tube" or just go directly to Tresa Black's tutorial. The Stamp Goddess has a very thorough demonstration of several stamp kissing techniques, such as: naked kissing, reverse kissing, small stamp kissing, two color/dirty kissing, same color-two tone,and kiss and twist,  -.Click here for her demo.
Here's a quick example - so simple, smack and you've made it uniquely yours.  
I used the back side of the butterflies from Your Beautiful Self B 1516 and inked solid Thistle and kiss and twisted the top and bottom butterflies with Pacifica using Seasons of Thanks D1604.  The middle butterfly has the same ink though the flowers are from Assorted Edges D1635 and not twisted.  It's been fun getting smoochie with ink and stamps.

Now, hop on over to  Tammy Lubick's blog - Scrap Stamp Share  -  to see what kind of fabulous stamp smoochen' she's created.  Be sure to drop us a comment, we enjoy the encouragement. Enjoy the Hop!
