Poppy Kisses in Coral Wishes
When I was searching through my stamp stash deciding which stamp sets to use for the Kissing Technique, I found the perfect option in PAINTED POPPIES stamp set. It has a solid "smoosh" image and several detailed images that are perfect to "kiss" together!
Just in case you've never done the Kissing Technique, here's a little description of what I've done.
Ink a solid image in a light color (Pale Papaya) and ink a detailed image in a darker color (Poppy Parade). Then "kiss" the inked detailed image onto the inked solid image. This creates a patterned image ready to stamp. Now take your "kissed" solid image and stamp onto your cardstock (Basic White). Note: You may need to breathe on the "kissed" stamp to re-moisten the ink before stamping.
As you can see, I added some of the PRETTY PRINTS Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the Calypso Coral color, some Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon and the Classic Matte Dots in Very Vanilla to complete my card.

CASE-ing and Shaking
When I saw this IRRESISTIBLE BLOOMS collection of products being offered in the March 2023 Online Exclusives, I knew I wanted to make a shaker card. The "dotted circle" die and the LOOSE FROSTED DOTS are perfect for the shaker card technique!
I also thought it would be great to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the card shown in the red circle in this photo---with just a few minor adjustments.
I decided to make the square element a "shaker" box and attach it to a regular sized card on a standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.5 x 14.9 cm) card base.
If you look closely at the flyer photo above, you will see that the flower and leaves that I used were die cut out of the HELLO IRRESISTIBLE Designer Series Paper. I just love it when the DSP has elements that can be cut out with the coordinating dies!
Here's the video I did in a Facebook Live group. Want to make this card? You can see the list of supplies and measurements in the description of the video (<--- click) shown on my Stamp With Joy Nelson YouTube channel.
Let's take one last look at this great project!
