Isn't it Romantic? Ornate Blossom with a Kiss

This week the Pals Paper Arts, PPA100 Challenge is for a technique.
Instantly I thought of one of the simplest techniques that is so cool - stamp "Kissing"! 

Simply ink up a bold stamp in a light color, then ink up a patterned stamp in a darker color, and then press them together in a "kiss!"  Isn't it romantic?  (hee hee hee...)
Stampin' Up!'s  Ornate Blossom stamp is perfect for this technique,
and so are the background stamps like the one I used above, Dot Dot Dot.

Colors I used here are Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip inks, on Baja Breeze & Early Espresso cardstocks.  PLUS I cannot help but admit I am addicted to embossing folders, so I used the Swiss Dots folder to coordinate with my dotted theme.

I am finally stamping during normal waking hours, so I actually took my card outside for this photo.  Looks better than my inside shots late at night, that's for sure.

Enjoy & have a fun & safe holiday weekend!
