Less is More #259

Morning friends are you ready to hear details of our latest
challenge over at Less is More this morning?

It's Theme week and all about 'kissing' - with stamps before you start pouting!
If you are new to the technique Chrissie has kindly added some instructions
over on the main blog so hope you'll take a look as well as admire my
teamies stunning designs! I have to admit this stamp kissing lark isn't one of 
my favourite techniques and I'm amazed there's a card to show you.
 It's always good to have a challenge though isn't it! 

Just a little tip from me: Anita is our 'kissing' queen and after having a little chat 
with her she suggested pigment inks may be better than dye inks for the technique
and they certainly worked better for me.

Here goes and it's Christmas all over again here ... 2016 first one in the bag!

It's bitterly cold and crisp where I am today and certainly looking more like
Christmas than a few weeks ago so that's my theme - no harm in being organised eh!
I've used the Jingle Bells set from Uniko for my bells and sentiments and 'kissed' 
those bells with a Clearly Besotted Building Block set to make Harlequin ones! 
The other stamps to accessorise are from Uniko: Balloon Bash
and to finish a gem and touch of glossy accents.

I'd like to enter this one over at Happy Little Stampers 
Christmas Challenge where the theme is 'Jingle'

Ok I'm handing over to you talented crafters and can't wait to see 
what kissing ideas you come up with!

Catch up with you again soon and thanks for calling in.
