Texture Kissing!!!

You have all heard of stamp kissing, now there is TEXTURE KISSING!
Jeanette Lynton shows how on her blog
Ready to do some kissing?
Stamp kissing that is, the visual kind that adds texture to stamp images to give them creative interest. Today, we’ll focus on texture kissing—check out some of these great ideas using August’s fabulous Stamp of the Month, Wicked (S1008A).

Take for instance the “Have a wicked Halloween” card. To add a subtle texture, Waxy Flax was wrapped around some chipboard in an unorganized fashion (see image on right). Then the stamped of the witch’s dress was kissed on the Waxy Flax and stamped off on another piece of paper.

This larger tag was created using our exclusive Cricut cartridge, Art Philosophy.
To create the look yourself, first cut a piece of paper with multiple images by setting the machine to autofill

Next cut the tag shape to the size indicated on the stamp carrier sheet.

Stamp the image in second generation ink onto the Cricut-cut shape
Place the paper that has been cut using the autofill function over the Cricut-cut shape and then stamp the image again.

The technique is quick and easy and what a great look! Whether you’re “kissing” or using another medium to add texture, you’ll always convey your “passion” for stamping!

That looks like so much fun, give it a try today!

  1. That is a fun technique and what a great utilization of the art philosophy cartridge too. I love turning scrap into a helpful resource. I've been saving my scrap pieces from my cuts and writing the sizes next to the cut space to help me remember and to use as stencils,now I have another great use for them. Thanks so much for sharing.
