Make it Monday: Colored Kissing

This is my second post for today.  If you are looking for my 4-of-a-Kind Post, click here.

For this week's Make it Monday MIM#57:  Colored Kissing, Heather Nichols shows us how to "kiss with color" on our stamps.  This is such a cool technique, and really very easy.  I have always wanted to try to put polka dots on the Enjoy the Ride car, and I was finally able to do it this week.  I used one of the stamps from Background Basics Retro--after looking at this card, I think it looks like it might be sponsored by Target--oh well, I like Target.

I used a Card Positioning Systems layout, CPS 256 for my layout.

Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Enjoy the Ride, BB:  Retro, Tag-it's, Fillable Frames
Paper:  Pure Poppy, Smokey Shadow, Aqua Mist Patterns, White
Other:  Enjoy the Ride, Fillable Frame, Eyelet dies, Nestie circle, Embossing folder

 Thanks for Visiting

  2. You did a fabulous job with the MIM technique, Joyce! Super fab card!

  3. Joyce, that pattern on the car is awesome! You chose the perfect impression plate to go along with this card, too. I also love the the frame sticking out of the side ;)
