Random Amusing Challenge 70

Welcome to this week's challenge. Today I'm challenging you to use the kissing technique. I'm sure you all know how to kiss but do you know how to do this stamping technique? I was inspired by Kim Hughes to do this technique (which I've done before but not FOREVER), thanks Kim! If you play along, please leave a comment here and link back to here from your post. If you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword GRAC71.

Emily asked a question when I posted my last circle card:
"I have that same circle cutter. I have trouble using it though. When I try and cut a circle, I feel like the clear plate moves inside the rim a little, and once my circle is cut out all the way, it's slightly distorted so that I can see the start/stop point fairly obviously (to me at least). Any ideas/suggestions on this? I would REALLY appreciate it!!!"

I don't have any secrets Emily, but I have heard if you use repositionable adhesive to keep the paper down on your glass mat, it helps. I don't have any yet and I've been managing ok so far (only the odd boo-boo). I would suggest, if you feel like it's moving, return it and get a new one.

Thanks to Joyce and Sue (and Layne!) for a fabulous class at Scrappers' Anonymous yesterday. Love teaching people crafty stuff! I will be announcing my A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA classes at Crafty Capers and Lasting Impressions soon, so stay tuned!
