Kissing Technique

Hello Crafters! This week I get to do an exciting Technique Challenge. Get ready for the Kissing Technique. Oh my! Not that Kissing technique... the stamping one. The basic idea is simple, but there are so many different ways to 'Kiss' in stamping. So, I have found a great video to help you. If you have never watched the 'Stamping Goddess' you are in for a treat. Go HERE

However, the basic technique is to take a solid stamp, ink it,  then take another stamp with a pattern on it and touch them together. The solid stamp now has a pattern on it which you can use on your project. But the cool part is that the pattern stamp has ink on it in the shape of your solid stamp. So now you have two images you could use to put on your project, both different.  Like the positive and negative of the same stamp. Well, you can 'Kiss' with a Twist, you can Kiss in two colours, you can 'Kiss and cut out...which is what I did on my card. There are many ways to 'Kiss', and now you know one more way. Thanks for listening. Leslie

Come and Get it Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone Cindy here, I'm your hostess for this week, and I had some fun with this one, as I designed it in the My Digital Studio Software, so cool. Oh you will notice mine is a Christmas card, which I need a lot of them so thought I would make one from the sketch. Anyway I hope you can play along with us this week and maybe you will be a top 3 pick and join us as a guest designer. We have a former top 3 pick with us this week, and she does some beautiful quilling on her cards as shown in her card. Go over and give her some praise, I'm sure she would love it. Anyway here are the Cards from your Design Team members:

Come and Get it Color Challenge

Hi Everyone, Shell wasn't able to post her color challenge this week, so I'm doing it for her. Thanks to everyone who participated in our Father's Day Challenge, there were some amazing entries for this challenge, making the job very difficult to pick our Top 3
Anyway onto the next Challenge which is a color combo. I think this should be a great one, and can see many uses with these colors.

As usual we have some really nice cards from our Design Team Members to show you.
