Kiss me Once, Kiss me Twice and Make a Difference


Good morning and welcome back!

Today, I have a very special video for you. In this video, I’m going to show you a stamping technique that you may have seen before, but this time, I’ve added a little twist to it and I’m calling it, “Kiss me Once, Kiss me Twice.”

But that’s not what makes this video special. The stamp set that I used to create these cards is a very special stamp set because it was designed to help raise money for disaster relief for the Bahamas.

As the news came in about the total devastation in the Bahamas, one of my best friends, Jennifer McGuire and I were texting back and forth feeling absolutely helpless. We knew that the people of the Bahamas were stuck. These weren’t the wealthy people who could jump on a plane and take off. These were the local people who didn’t have much to begin with. Their homes weren’t hurricane sturdy and they didn’t have money to leave. Just about everyone lost everything and worse, many lost their lives.

Jennifer and I wanted to do something to help, so we came up with a concept for a stamp set that not only featured beautiful, tropical images, but also captured Jennifer’s essence and heart by including words and greetings that will help you share handmade kindness.

Introducing Love and Kindness

This set is available as a stamp set only or a stamp and die bundle and 100% of the net profits are going to the Global Empowerment Mission. This group is already there helping and making a difference.

The short-term goal of this organization is to empower people struck with tragedy by providing emergency aid, cash cards, food and housing. And long-term, GEM provides quality education, diverse vocational training and job creation to people in third world countries such as Haiti. The objective is for people in developing countries to have a self-sufficient and sustainable economy, ultimately eliminating their dependency on foreign aid. Learn more about them down at the end of this post.

Crafter’s have the biggest hearts! And your purchase of this set is a win-win. You get to help make a difference and you get fun new stamps and dies!

So let’s talk about today’s cards. 🙂

For my first care, I used the Kiss me Once Technique.

And the second card uses the Kiss me Twice Technique.

This supply list is almost the same for both cards and the measurements are the same as well.



White Card Base- 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half

Black Layer- 3 7/8″ X 5 1/8″

For the third card, I created a quick card off screen to show you the versatility of the set and how you can make a more masculine card. I did add a few sequins but you can leave those off if you don’t want the sparkle.

    A very special stamp and die set for a very special cause. So thoughtful and generous to give all the proceeds to the Bahamians in their time of need. I enjoyed learning the Kiss me once and kiss me twice technique. The results are so neat. I will give it a try. Love your card.

    I love this set, your’s and Jennifer’s presentations of it is inspirational. I also appreciate good causes supported by great people!
    As an aside and I’m sure not the appropriate place to put this, but…🤷‍♀️. I found your ‘Rustic Autumn ‘ stamp set being sold on amazon by JaneMo Stamping for$3.28. It just seemed hard to believe, so I went back and forth between your site and amazon’s to see if it was the same, it was. Maybe I’m out of line, but, I hate to think that someone else might be taking your products and calling them their own. 🤷‍♀️🤔

      That is a knock off set that we will have to try to get removed. Thank you for letting us know and for your support of the authentic stamp set. This hurts our stamp designers and our company so much. We appreciate you so much!
