Kiss My Pants! DIY Lipstick Kisses Printed Jeans… MUAH!

Read This…

When I saw Erin Fetherston’s Sealed with a Kiss Collection for Spring/Summer 2013, or more specifically, the kiss print Patricia Pant, I HAD TO MAKE A PAIR! They are just so cute I can’t stand it, and just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Because I am an impatient creature and have an insatiable NEED TO DO IT NOW attitude, AND I had an extra pair of white pants lying around, AND I know that lipstick stains are almost impossible to remove from clothing, I used lipstick and my very own lips to create this print. DISCLAIMER: I haven’t washed them yet, so even though I rubbed the lip stain in with a cloth, I would not trust sitting down in them for fear that I would leave a little path of kisses behind me {as cute as that sounds}. HOWEVER, I still think that when I wash them, the lips will remain planted all over my pants. But FIRST I will seal the lip stain.

IF you would like to do this project and NOT worry about leaving lipstick stains everywhere or you just don’t trust your pucker, then you should buy the Kisses STAMPS set of 21 … AND … VersaCraft Ink Pads for fabric {in pinks and reds!} and create an everlasting print of your own {though I’d still set the stain before washing them with the rest of your clothes}.

What You’ll Need…

{SEE ABOVE FOR AN ALTERNATIVE TO LIPSTICK}
* White pants or jeans… mine are Jigsaw London Green Label white twill jeans {though it doesn’t look like they carry white anymore}. Any white jeans or pants will do. These are very lightweight and may be a bit easier to work with. BUT if you use the stamp/ink set listed above instead, a heavier denim will be better, & don’t forget to insert cardboard inside the legs so the ink won’t bleed through to the other side.
* Bright red and pink lipsticks {or maybe blues, plums, and black? fun}. I used Sonia Kashuk Luxe Lip ~ Classic Red and Sonia Kashuk Luxe Lip ~ Pink Punch
* Small mirror for easy application
* A clean cloth or rag
* Tissue paper, large packing paper, etc.

Steps…

* Apply a GENEROUS amount of lipstick to your pout.

* Pucker up and start kissing! And really press those lips into your fabric! I would get one good dark print, then about 3-4 lighter ones. This made for nice texturing.

* You want a variety of different lip prints, so experiment with open and closed-mouth kisses! When your lips run dry, just reapply your lipstick right over the last application and start kissing again. I alternated red then pink, red then pink, just reapplying over the last color.

* When one entire side is complete with kisses, take your clean cloth and carefully just blend your lip prints, while pressing in, setting the stain. This smudges the lips a little and leaves a bit of pink shadowing in the background, which I really liked versus a hard-edged kiss print. Obviously if you use the ink/stamps, you’ll get more perfectly angled lip prints.

* Don’t forget your sides! I began in the back and did the sides as I went. Once I finished kissing the entire backside ;), I slid my tissue paper underneath so as not to mark up my workspace or smudge the prints any more than I wanted to … then begin kissing the opposite side.

* I began with all of my bright lip hues, but ended up using only these two by Sonia Kashuk.

Voilà… Voilà!

Happy Kissing, Lovecats!
