Lots of Kissing at Heart2Heart!

Not of the smooching variety... just the stamping version!  This week we're featuring the stamp kissing technique, and we want to see what you can come up with!  Don't know what stamp kissing is?  It's basically where you ink up a fairly solid image, and before you stamp it on your paper, you "kiss" it with a patterned stamp, that will remove the ink wherever the patterned image hits.  Clear as mud?  Hop on over to the Heart2Heart Challenge blog, where there is a link to the wonderfully talented Tresa Black's blog - she has a very informative video, with a number of different versions of stamp kissing.  For my card, I chose to make a valentine - the heart is inked in bamboo, then kissed with the dot pattern that was inked in cranberry.  The letters are not inked, just kissed with the cranberry inked dot pattern and then stamped onto the cream cardstock.  We have the amazing Aaron Brown joining us this month as our February Guest Designer, so be sure to check out what she's come up with, and don't forget that 2 entrants will be randomly selected at the end of the month to win prize packs from our two sponsors, and 10 entrants will make our monthly Top Ten list - so get creating!
All supplies are CTMH - Stamp sets are Rustic Alphabet, Love Is, Spot On Backgrounds, and Atomic Caps; Cardstock is Black; Cranberry & Colonial White; Inks are Cranberry & Bamboo; 1 1/4" circle punch; Kraft Colour-Ready Borders; Cranberry grosgrain ribbon.
