On these cards, we inked the background stamp, Medallion (sadly, it too is on the Retiring Stamp Set List), using Daffodil Delight. Then we inked up a Textured Embossing Folder (Snow Burst or the Square Lattice folder was used on these) with Tangerine Tango ink. Lay the folder onto the background stamp, give it a roll with the brayer to “kiss” the ink onto the stamp. Just like you would leave your lipstick on hubby’s lips when you give him a smooch :) And now you know how I tied the first project, Birthday Smooches, into this month’s “theme”. :) Strange how it all fits, isn’t it?
I just want to note, I used the Naturals White card stock on this project. It leaves a more textured look to the image. I’d like to give this technique a go on Whisper White. I’m sure it will be gorgeous and look very different.
Thank you for popping in today. I’m so glad you did. I hope you’ve been inspired to give this folder-kissing technique a try. :) It is so cool. One of my customers said, “So, we can buy these folders without owning a Big Shot!” Absolutely! Then you’ll have them for when you do get the Big Shot :) Now that is really cool! Have a great day!
