Hello my crafty friends. Jackie here today. I’ve got a tutorial to share with you that may change the way you craft.
Have you ever tried Mirror Image Stamping? It’s super easy and show how to do it without any any special tools or stamps. You can use what you already have to extend your stamping.
I started out by stamping the fun little frog from the Happy Birthday, Princess stamp set in Eclipse Black ink on a scrap piece of white cardstock. Now for the fun part. The castle in this set has a large back side. Large enough to fit the stamped frog. I flipped it over onto my glass mat and carefully stamped the fog onto it. Making sure not to wiggle the stamp. I then pressed the cardstock on the image. Using my Impression Smoosher to make sure I get a good transfer.
This short video shows exactly how I did it.
I colored the frogs with my Copic Markers.
Frog – YG00,YG03, YG17, YG67
Crown – Y00, Y11, Y15, YR24
Next I stamped one of the princesses from the Pretty Princess set. These are a little smaller and fit the setup of my card better. Again I used Copics Markers to color.
Hair – E42, E43, E47
Face – E50, E51, E11
Dress – B000, B00, B02, B04
I fussy cut all three stamped images and added dimensional foam tape to the back and aligned them in center of each circle.
I then cut a thin ¼in strip of cardstock and stamped the sentiment, adding foam to it too.
I hope you try mirror image stamping. It really is as easy as it looks.
Until next time my friends – Jackie ❤
