Thinking of You Lily Pad

Hello again!

Today's card is one I'm so happy with, don't you love when that happens?!
I'm playing along with the kissing challenge over at Lily Pad Cards.  Such a fun technique :)

I started by inking the flowers (Hero Arts, Large Blossom) with versamark and the script (Hero Arts, Old French Writing) with gathered twigs distress ink, I "kissed" the two together a couple of times (the old french writing is not an entire background stamp) before stamping on glossy card stock.

Once it was dry I rubbed on worn lipstick to establish my base color. I added some shading and colored the stems/leaves with my marvy markers. I've never used alcohol markers on glossy card stock but I just love how it worked out :)

For the bottom panel I colored it with my darkest pink (I didn't have matching card stock) and stamped the old french writing again using festive berries. The banner was inked with pine needles and peeled paint. The super cute sentiment is from Hero Arts All Occasion Messages. It truly is a must have set!

Keeping it super simple but I think really pretty :) What do you think? I think I'll definately be making some more cards using this technique hehe


  1. You've used one of my favorite stamps, Kelly - and it works perfectly with the kissing technique! Love the way this turned out - so pretty! I'm glad you played with us at Lily Pad Cards! :)

  2. Beautiful stamping, I love that you used glossy paper for this technique. Really gorgeous card! Thanks for joining the stamp kissing challenge at Lily Pad Cards!
