Here's another technique that I tried from the mini VSN. I really don't like this card, as I didn't really have a good stamp to try the kissing technique on. I used the Big Blossom stamp from SU for my base. I stamped it in Pretty in Pink, then "kissed" the stamped image with Rose Red Classic Ink and the I Heart Heart stamp set. I then cut out the big blossom and placed it on top of whisper white that I had run through the Big Shot using a Sizzix embossing plate. I put all that on top of a real red piece that I punched with the zig zag hearts corner & border punches. I put a pretty in pink epoxy brad in the middle of the flower. I also punched out a heart using the SU heart punch and another stamp from the I Heart Hearts set in Rose Red ink.
There is a tutorial over on SCS that you can view HERE
It's snowing again. There's already another inch on the ground, and it just started a couple of hours ago. Another 8-12" is what is predicted. I've already decided I'm working from home tomorrow. I'll just dial in and take care of whatever comes up. What a winter we've had!!!
