Lets talk about the kissing technique!
Do I have your attention now? This is a fun technique that you need to try at home. We did this card at my last techniques class. Here’s the card then we’ll chat:
The first thing we did was run the whisper white card stock through the Big Shot with the Herringbone Embossing folder. Then we softly brushed the raised areas using a dauber inked with Pink Pirouette. The final “kissing technique” is inking up the netting stamp with soft suede ink. Lay the embossed image on top of the inked up stamp, gently rub over the back of the card stock. The raised portions are now pink with soft suede netting! Try this at home you will be amazed at how easy and what a WOW it is when you lift that card stock up to see the final results!
Yesterday we went to Washington Island. Going through Sister Bay we stopped so that I could get a picture of a restaurant that has grass on the roof. If that is not different enough, they have goats that go up there to keep the grass trimmed! Take a look:
This is the restaurant sign. We did not eat there, but, must be good there was quite a line of people waiting to go in.
This was over the entrance to the restaurant!
Here are pictures of us leaving to go to Washington Island. It was very windy and cold. The colors are just beautiful. We enjoyed driving around the island and talking with the owner of “The Middle Bar II”, Angie. They live an entirely different life style living on Washington Island. They have their own school with about 60-65 children. They have their own fire station and ambulance. There is one clinic with 2 Physician Assistants. They have their own little airport with a landing pad for a helicopter if needed for medical purposes. When we were waiting to leave we saw the UPS bin coming off the ferry. My mind went to……so that’s how my Stampin’ UP! orders would come over! Just saying, I miss my stamps!
All the flags were straight out all day. BRRRRRRRRR!
On the way back it was a little choppy. I found it relaxing and took a little nap. Trudy and Sandy were a little green around the gills. But, did feel better once we got to solid ground!
Thanks for reading and happy stamping!
