Kissed Baroque

By now I'm sure your thinking Baroque Motifs must be the only set I have, but alas I assure you, it's not! I'm just having a hard time putting it down. Tonight I was looking for some simple inspiration, as I seem to be in a creative funk....So back to the basics I went. I used a simple layout and the Kissing Technique on this card



Card Details: Flourish is stamped in versamark on Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky card stock, edges are sponge daubered in Chocolate Chip ink, then layered on a White card stock base. Cherish is stamped in Chocolate Chip. Image is stamped in Chocolate Chip, then kissed to the flourish stamp, then stamped on Soft Sky card stock, add a Fire Square Rhinestone Brad and adhere to card with dimensionals.


Here's a closer look at my kissed image








Kissing stamp images is really quite simple

  • ink image
  • press to another image (in this case I pressed it to the flourish image in the Baroque Motifs set)
  • stamp onto your card stock

The cool looking brad I used on this card is also a new product in Stampin' Up!'s Fall Winter Collection, the brad is from the new Rhinestone Brads Collection - Fire Squares.

ETA:

Etha Asked "when you stamp with versamark, does it take a long time to dry on the cardstock? I really only use that stamppad for embossing but I like the effect that you get with it on this card. "

My response: Versamark can also be used as a watermark on your card stock - thus taking on what ever color card stock you are stamping on. It doesn't take long at all to try.

Another cool thing to do with versamark is to ink your image in versamark, then in a dye ink, stamp and clear emboss - now you have endless possibilities for colored embossing powder!

I'll post some samples to my blog later today. - Lisa

That is beautiful! At the moment I love chocolate brown in any combination, funny how we go through different color preferences! My question is, when you stamp with versamark, does it take a long time to dry on the cardstock? I really only use that stamppad for embossing but I like the effect that you get with it on this card.
