Howlin' For You Card - Paper Wings Productions


I'm sharing a fun card for Paper Wings Productions today that uses a fun technique called stamp kissing, which is a great way to add some personal flair to stamped images. I used this technique in two different ways, to remove a pattern on a textured stamp and to add a pattern to a solid stamp, on a masculine card I created for my husband.


I started with the Howlin' For You Cling Stamp. The first thing I thought of when I saw these trees was that a set of initials in one of the tree trunks would be a great way to personalize this stamp. I began by applying ink to the textured tree stamp.


I found a solid heart shape that fit inside the largest tree perfectly in the Handmade Clear Stamp Set. I carefully pressed the solid heart portion of the stamp onto the inked tree trunk to remove a heart-shaped area of ink. 


I didn't use a stamp block for this step. The clear stamps are flexible, so I was able to press just the desired heart portion of this stamp onto the tree to remove some of the ink. Note: Avoid sliding the stamp around during this step to prevent smudging of the image. Any ink that was not removed from the textured stamp can be removed with a Q-tip.

Once I stamped the trees onto my card, I was ready to alter the wolf.


The Holiday Mix It Up Clear Stamp Set contains a feather which I thought could add some fantastic "fur" to my wolf. I repeatedly inked and stamped my feather onto the solid wolf stamp until it was covered, and then stamped the image onto my card.


I'm really pleased with the twist I put on this stamp set and I hope I have inspired you to try this technique!
