A little kissing went on to make this card!

See the "hello"? Isn't it cute with its little added red stripe-ys? In the following tutorial, I will tell you exactly how to get this nifty effect.

This is a card that my girls made at the June Stamp-In Workshop. It is fairly simple and comes together easily.

Just a close-up of the "hello" to entice you:

The following photo shows the color combo a bit more clearly, as well as the various products that were used in the card.

Ready to try a "kissed hello" (or any other kissed-) of your own? Here goes:

Hello stamp (from Sale-A-Bration 2016)
Stamp A Bag set (retired)
Timeless Textures set (page 120)
Work of Art set (122)

Cherry Cobbler cardstock
Whisper White cardstock
Pool Party cardstock

Pool Party ink
Cherry Cobbler ink

Basic Rhinestones
Pool Party Cotton Ribbon
Various Washi Tapes in Pool Party/Cherry Cobbler/Whisper White (or a color combo of choice)
Stampin' Dimensionals

Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder. You get a much better crease if you score the cardstock first with the Simply Scored (page 185).

In Pool Party ink, stamp the varied lines across the top of a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Leaving a little space, add three strips of Washi Tape, then another row of the stamped lines. Finish up this piece by stamping the grungy border several times across the bottom.

Adhere this finished piece to the card base.

* Ink up the "hello" stamp with Pool Party ink. Ink up the thicker zig zag lines stamp with Cherry Cobbler ink, and "KISS" it right onto the inked-up "hello" stamp. Huff on it a bit; then stamp it onto a 2" x 3 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Adhere this to a 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" piece of Pool Party cardstock.

After flagging the ends of a 4 1/2" piece of Pool Party ribbon, adhere this to the back of the "hello" piece. Pop it up atop the Washi Tape stripes with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.

Add two basic Rhinestones at an angle in the corner.

* I apologize that the focal point of this card featured a retired stamp (hello). Other current stamps that would work equally as well for this card include: 

the "celebrate" stamp from Party With Cake (page 14)
the "happy birthday" stamp (page 16)
the "happy" from Celebrate Today (page 18)
several of the stamps from Oh,What Fun (page 31)
"thank you so much" from Thankful Thoughts (page 39)
the "yum!" from Me = Grateful (page 43)
two of the stamps from Layering Love (page 71)
the "spending" stamp from B.Y.O.P. (page 81)
"congrats" and "oh happy day" from Scenic Sayings (page 103)
three of the stamps from Friendly Wishes (page 105)
"art" from Painter's Palette (page 119)
the large numbers and letters on pages 136 and 137

To replace the retired zig zag stamp from Stamp a Bag, you could use:

the banner from Birthday Fiesta (page 11)
the row of hearts from Birthday Blooms (page 12)
the string of lights from Confetti Celebration (page 12)
the two border stamps from Ready to Pop (page 17)
the borders from Sweet Stack (page 19)
the border from Peace This Christmas (page 27)
the dots from Helping Me Grow (page 40)
the ornate border from Moroccan Nights (page 67)
the dotted border from Watercolor Wings (page 68)
the border from Floral Phrases (page 77)
the lines or a row of stars from Better Together (page 83)
the two borders from Tin of Cards (page 86)
the border or designs from Beautiful Banners (page 88)
the borders from Seaside Shore (page 93)
any of several from the Lovely Stitching set (page 98)
the two borders from Sunburst Sayings (page 99)
the double lines from the swing or the shadow border from Sitting Here (page 100)
the cool tire tracks from One Wild Ride (page 115)
two of the borders from Gorgeous Grunge (page 123)
several of the borders from Mixed Borders (page 123)
the border from Awesomely Artistic (page 144)
the stem from Garden in Bloom (page 146)
the little pebbles or the line from Live, Love, Grow (page 147)
a couple selections from Perfectly Wrapped (page 159)
you could have a workshop and get Basket for You (page 198) for the lines!

You could also replace the stamped lines above and below the washi tape with any of the aforementioned stamps.

THERE! Lots and lots of inspiration for you! Give it a try! It's so easy and looks so great!
