Today I've made a little something with the fun and versatile Kissables 1 stamp set.

Supplies:
Cardstock: (yellow) Bazzill, (white, gray, black) World Win, Stamps: (houndstooth, polkadot: Kissables 1, leaf: Leafy Greens) Paper Smooches, Ink: (white, blue) ColorBox, (pink) Fresh Ink, (orange) Memento, Embossing Powder: American Crafts, Dies: (hello: Quote Tag Dies, frame: chain Dies) Paper Smooches, corner rounder: We R Memory Keepers, buttons: Buttons Galore
Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

The Kissables stamp sets are designed to be used with solid stamps such as the leaves (or petals) I've used above. You can ink up your solid stamp then "kiss" is onto the patterned Kissables stamp to remove some of the ink creating a tome on tone image like the ones I've done. You can, of course, just stamp the Kissables directly onto you paper too. for the "hello" I stamped and embossed the Kissables polkadot in white onto black paper, then die cut my word. 

I really love all the patterns that come with the Kissables 1 set, great basic images that go with almost anything!

Next you're off the see the fantastic JJ Bolton!

Have fun and good luck!
Heidi
