Kiss kiss kiss

When I sign off letters or cards I always put three kisses, so this card came together perfectly for me. I’ll be entering it in the current challenges – Case this Sketch #307 and Southern Girls Challenge.

The images from the the new stamp company The Rabbit Hole Designs are so sweet so I know I’ll be using this set, ‘Love you More’, a lot.

Images

  • Stamp images on cardstock suitable for alcohol markers using Momento Tuxedo Black.
  • Coloured with G00, YG41, G02, G05, R32, R35, R37, B93, B95, B97, BG45, BG49, W1, W3, W5, W7, Black, E11, E15, E18 E000, E00, E02, E04, R22
  • Cut out with Brother Scan n Cut DX1200.

Die cut

  • Die cut Birch Press Big You Sugar Script with a black shadow and
    Rosies Studio Arabesque patterned paper.
  • Adhere two die cuts using liquid glue to give you a bit of wiggle room as you line up the dies.

Sentiment

  • Position image and die cut on card base in a Misti Original (useful if you want to double stamp).
  • Place Love and Kiss in place and pick up with Misti door.
  • Stamp with red and grey Altenew mini ink cubes.
  • I moved the cardbase to the left in my Misti to line up the 2nd and 3rd kiss word.

Tip: Using the original Misti (6 1/2″ x 8 1/2″) allows you to move the card around rather than change the position of the stamp – useful for sentiments.

Finishing

  • Place panel on card base using ATG.
  • Adhere die cut with double sided tape and image with foam adhesive tape to give some dimension.
  • Added Glossy Accents to the glasses and Wink of Stella Clear to the balloons.
