The kissing technique takes one inked stamp and ‘kiss’ it to another. Then, stamp onto your project and the image appears to all be from one stamp. No masking or fussy cutting or anything like that!
The stamp kissing technique is not new but it’s a fun one!
What Do You Need For The Stamp Kissing Technique?
- 2 different stamps–one with a solid image and the other with words or a pattern. **If you want to make your cards like mine you’ll want the ‘Love of Leaves’ Bundle and the ‘Very Versailles’ stamp set.
- At least two ink colors (keep in mind you want both stamps to show so pick colors that contrast but compliment each other). I used 4 ink colors on my cards today.
First, ink up the solid stamp. Next, take the second stamp and ink it up and then “kiss” it together to the first stamp. Viola! That’s the stamp kissing technique! Next you’re ready to stamp that solid ‘kissed’ stamp onto your paper.

Had you heard of the Stamp Kissing Technique before? Ready to try it? I’d love to hear what you think!
On the first card (above) I used sponge daubers with Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry inks and applied those to the scrap piece of white cardstock.
Next I inked the leaf in Versarmark.
Then, I used the scripty words stamp and inked it in Memento black ink and “Kissed” the two stamps together!
Last, I stamped the leaf and cut it out with the dies from ‘Love of Leaves’ bundle.
