Sell-A-Bration

It's Sell-a-Bration time here with Stampin' Up! so the excitement and thrill of FREE stamps is in the air. I love stamps, but getting them FREE is icing on the cake! Send me a note if you'd like more info on this event!!
So I was playing around with Big Blossom today with the technique *perfect* for Valentine's Day -- the KISSING technique. . There's a lot of different kissing techniques, but in this card I stamped the big blossom with craft So Saffron and then used a background stamp from Fresh Fillers inked with craft Elegant Eggplant. You simply take your stamps and kiss them (stamp one on top of the other) and then stamp that onto cardstock -- easy peasy! I'm a punch addict, so I pulled out my flowers punch & my window punch (love that one!!) and added a little embellishing to the card. I used SU's white gel pen (best I've ever tried... no drying out or skipping while I write!) and made some faux stitching/doodles around the cut out flower. Pretty simple, but I needed to make a quick card to send to someone using this technique so she could see it up close & personal. I'm a visual learner too!! The scan didn't come out too great, but hopefully it gives you a bit of an idea.
