Lily Pad Challenge...

I love the videos at Lily Pad.  I also noticed they had a "Kissing" technique challenge.  Click HERE to see the challenge.  The technique is creating an image from stamps that 'kiss.'  For my card, I used a Hero Arts background print that I clear-embossed on white cardstock. I used Distress inks to bring color to the pattern. The umbrella is a die cut from Paper Trey Ink. There is a coordinating stamp set with the die cut. I used Soap Powder (Jenni Bowlin ink) to ink up my umbrella stamp image (1) that was part of a coordinating stamped image with the PTI diecut.  I then took the 'Spiced Tin' ink pad and stamped a Hero Arts background stamp  (2). I pressed the inked background stamp  (2) on the inked umbrella image (1).  This made a 'kissing' blend of both images.  I stamped the inked umbrella image (1) onto the diecut.   Watch this video. It's easier to understand:

I took silver Stickles and dressed up the umbrella and put glossy accents on the handle.  I put Faded Jeans distress ink on the edges of the umbrella. 

For the sentiment, I used the sentiment from the coordinating stamped set and stamped it in Spice Tin.

Here are links to the two Hero Arts Background Stamps that were used in this card.

I saw this video and just had to share.  Give it a minute... This guy was also featured on Ellen (DeGeneres) because this video went VIRAL.  The style of dance is 'dub-step.'


  1. Love your card! The umbrella is so soft and pretty!

  2. You've done the kissing technique to perfection on this sweet card! I love the subtle pattern you created for the umbrella. So happy you joined us at Lily Pad Cards!
