Tried something new

I tried Stamp Kissing for the 1st time last week. I had NO idea how to do this but, thanks to Google, I was able to find a few videos on the basics.
It's not as easy as they make it look. (At least not for me! ha!)

Here I kissed a flourish stamp into some solid alphas.

This one I kissed a dot stamp into the solid flower.
I inked up the flower stamp, pressed it down onto the dot stamp. This removed some of the ink from the flower. Then I stamped the solid flower down onto the cardstock.
The other flower was made by pressing the dot stamp down onto the cardstock. The ink was left from being pressed into the ink on the solid flower.
Again I used a flourish stamp into the alpha on 'hi'.

Cardstock on both projects all ColorMates by WorldWin Papers
Stamps: Alphas by Technique Tuesday, Flowers by Stampin' Up!, Dots by Cornish Heritage Farms, Flourishes by Autumn Leaves and Stampin' Up!
Punches: EK Success
Buttons: random
Ribbon: Making Memories
