Stamp Kissing

UPDATE:
I made it to the Froggin' Fantastic Four with this card check it out here.

I love Lily Pad Blog and saw a new challenge for a technique called 'Stamp Kissing'.
I'd never heard of this nor tried it so I thought today was a good time to learn something new!   Needless to say I'm entering it into the Kissing Challenge at Lily Pad.  I found the hardest part was finding the two cards to kiss together to make a nice blend.

My 'kissing stamps' were the flower branch from My Cute Stamps
the Ashley's Blossoms set
and a script background stamp from Inkadinkado

I added some papers from the 6x6 paper pad by
Melissa Frances called 5th Avenue

The inside is the same sheet of paper fussy cut to make the
corner blossom

The card base is Kraft Cardstock
This gorgeous ribbon was a closeout Offray ribbon (3 yards for 50 cnets!!)
from a local scrapbook store
I also used the script stamp on the backround mat

Here you can see how the branch stamp kissed
the script backround stamp and gave it a hint of script here and there

So pretty, Patti! And that really IS the hardest part of the technique - choosing the right stamps. For your first ever try at "kissing," this turned out beautifully! Thanks for playing with us at Lily Pad Cards!

Your card is so beautiful! The subtle colors and feminine details make it really special! For your first effort at stamp kissing you certainly knocked it out of the park (if you don't mind my baseball metaphor). The 2 stamps you chose are so perfect together, such a sweet and delicate result. I'm so glad you joined us for this challenge at Lily Pad Cards.
