Rock the Block Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Blog Hop featuring the Rock The Block kit. You may have found your way here from Traci Godbee's Blog.

This stamp set is perfect to demonstrate a favorite stamping technique: Kissing with Lipstick. Kissing stamps means that you ink one stamp and press it against a second stamp before stamping onto the final surface. Kissing with lipstick is the technique of stamping two stamps in contrasting ink, pressing "kissing" them together and then stamp onto the surface. The flower on this mini card is stamped with Crystal Blue ink with the dot background stamp kissed with Chocolate.

Next I have a circle card to share in the same color sceme of Chocolate and Blue (Crystal Blue and Twilight). I stamped the background stamp on the butterfly in Chocolate and distressed everything with the stipple brush and Chololate ink.

My last card is fun and colorful. It features the colors Sunset, Gypsy and Lagoon.
