Background Kissing (with Stamps!)

The fabulous Julie Ebersole has created a “how-to” video to show off how to do stamp kissing :)

So, there was a challenge for the A Muse Consultants to do a little kissing!  It took me a few days to think about this challenge – as I do not remember to do this technique a lot! 

A Muse Kissing technique 001

So, let me tell you about this card…I came up with the idea while I was at work, and after a long day – I was able to put that idea to good use!  The petals of the flowers are from the A Muse Studio set, Ovalicious (stamped in Heather) – and the center circle is from Lots of Dots (stamped in Blackberry).  I raised it with a pop dot.  I kissed the center circle with a stamp from the Ornate Elements set.

The adorable flower ribbon is Tiny Flower Ribbon also from A Muse!  My upline shared this with me, and I was quick to put it on a card.  To share my “oops” moment with you, I used my glue pen to adhere it, and the glue did stain the ribbon.  In the future, I would use glue dots or another type of adhesive next time…Live & Learn….

Oh, then I used the smallest pearl stickers as the center of the ribbon flowers.  You know, just as that something special Winking smile
