Beautiful Day Mirror Image Stamping

Helloo all! It’s LauraJane today:)) Have you been following along with the Mirror Image Event? mie_banner

All February long, the design team members from My Sweet Petunia, The Ton and So Suzy Stamps will create a card using the Mirror Image Stamp. There will be blog posts, videos and a ton of instructions on how we all use the Mirror Image Stamp.

The Mirror Image Stamp is a great stamping tool that works with the MISTI to create reflections and reverse images.

For my card I used the Beautiful Day stamp set.  A bicycle with a basket of flowers is such a HAPPY picture in my mind..so TWO bikes with baskets is even BETTER, right?

It was very easy to line up the two layers of bicycle images withe the MISTI and then make a mirror image as well.

  • Starting with  an A2 sized Card Front
  • For the bike on the right; I followed the instructions from the Mirror Image Video, stamping the main bicycle image from Beautiful Day in Soft Garnet
  • Then positioned the second layer and stamped in Red Sangria
  • Repeated the same ink colors and stamped the bike on the left, which is the original direction of the stamps.
  • Added the bouquet of flowers after placing a mask on the edges of the baskets. stamping with Ballet Slippers and a hint of Crystal Pewter
  • I then grabbed Brushed Hugs and inked it in Ballet Slippers , being careful to wipe off the ink on the lower part of the letter “g”
  • I inked sending love and healing and happy thoughts in Crystal Pewter along the bottom edge
  • Finished by stamping all the tiny hearts from Beautiful Day set in Soft Garnet
  • Added shimmer marker to the hearts to make them pop!

So Suzy Stamps & The Ton Collaboration Hop Day 3

15126127_10103101339148299_259341326_o-png

Hello and welcome back to the final day of our fabulous Collaboration Hop with So Suzy Stamps! I enjoyed this collab so much that I made two cards for today!

suzy-day-3

For my first card, I made a fun scene card using our City Girls: Retail Therapy and Department Store stamps and Suzy’s Street Lamp and Herb 1 stamps.

I started off by stamping the background Dept. Store stamp in our Noir Dye ink on an A2 sized card panel.  I set that aside and stamped the elements for my scene from our Retail Therapy set. After I stamped all the ladies, pup, cab and accessories, I colored them in with zig markers and die cut them using their coordinating dies.  Then I watered down some of my zig markers to color in the Dept. Store background. I chose a more muted background because I didn’t want to take away from the hustle and bustle of the scene.

Zig markers used (available individually here): No 51 Lemon Yellow, No 50 Yellow, No 91 Light Gray, No 36 Light Blue, Black Zig Marker, No 20 Red, No 24 Wine Red, No 62 Dark Brown, No 71 Flesh, No 72 Beige, No 64 Oatmeal, No 92 Blue Gray, No 37 Cornflower Blue, No 42 Turquoise Green, No 202 Peach Pink, No 81 Light Violet, No 70 Orange, No 45 Pale Green, No 83 Lilac

Next I gold glitter heat embossed the lamp on a separate card panel and used my Scan N Cut to cut out the lamp.  Before I put the scene together, I gold glitter heat embossed the gorgeous leafy Herb 1 stamp on the top portion of my Dept. Store panel.  I LOVE the effect it has on the scene!  The falling foliage gave it more depth and life to the project.

Next I adhered the Dept. Store panel onto a side folding A2 card base and then assembled my scene by popping up all the elements (except the cab) with some dimensional foam tape. Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder on black cardstock and adhered it onto my card.

suzy-day-3-4

My next card is more simple but just as fun!  I used the same City Girls: Retail Therapy set and paired it with Suzy’s festive scripty Celebrate sentiment.  Our Retail Therapy set might be one of my favorites from the last release.  The image with the girl holding all of the boxes and bags is so comical and I know some of you guys can relate!

I started off by stamping the gal with the boxes in our Noir Dye Ink. Then I took the same stamp and stamped only the boxes along the bottom edge of my card panel so that it looked like she was surround by boxes and boxes of fabulous shopping finds.  After I stamped the box piles, I stamped the shopping bags and the adorable pup.

Next I stamped the Celebrate stamp next to our gal.  This Celebrate stamp is something that I will be keeping on my desk as a go to. For the You Deserve It portion of the sentiment, I simply curved the end of it on my acrylic block so that it would curve alongside the end curve of the Celebrate sentiment.  I chose not to color the panel as I enjoyed the monochrome look to the card. To finish the card, I adhered some of our new Silver Holographic sequins.

Thank you all so much for stopping by Day 3 of So Suzy and The Ton’s Collaboration Hop! I really enjoyed creating with So Suzy’s stamps! Her images are beautiful and work well as collaborative stamps as well as standalone stamps.

suzy-collab-2

When I saw Suzy’s Blowing Butterflies stamp, I knew I needed to use it on our Haute Wedding Dress gal.  The dress is fairly billowy and provides a large enough canvas to insert many different designs.

I started off by creating my background panel. I stamped our Vogue Skyline in our Noir Dye Ink on the center of the panel. Then I blended some Cali Blue and Azurite Dye inks at the top and bottom edges of the panel.  I heat embossed the

Next, I went to work on that gorgeous dress! I stamped our Haute Wedding Dress on a separate card panel in our Noir Dye Ink. Then I gold heat embossed the bodice of the dress with.  Next I created a negative mask with our dress. I used the negative portion to mask the outer edges of the dress so that I could gold glitter heat emboss those beautiful butterflies within the dress.

After I embossed the butterflies, I carefully peeled off the negative mask and then spooned the gold glitter embossing powder over the butterfly stamped image. Then I melted all the powder with my heat gun. Next I colored in the dress and butterflies with zig markers.

After I finished coloring with my zig markers, I brushed on some clear Wink of Stella over the shaded areas of the dress to add some more sparkle.  Then I die cut our gal with the coordinating die.

Next I gold glitter heat embossed the fabulous Confidence is Sexy sentiment onto my blended card panel. Before I adhered the blended panel onto a side folding A2 card base, I added some stitching to the edges with our Double Stitched Rectangles die set.  Then I popped up my Haute Wedding Dress gal onto the panel and added some Dew Drops in both sizes to add some finishing touches to the card.

That’s it for my card for the day! Your next stop is the fabulous Ms. Suzy.  Make sure to leave a comment for a chance to win one of the giveaways mentioned above!

For my card today, I created a light up panda card using our Panda Can’t Even set and Chibitronics Starter Kit.

First, I stamped the panda from our Panda Can’t Even set in our Noir Dye Ink.  Then I gold heat embossed the sentiment from our Like a Boss set with some gold glitter embossing powder.  Next I heat embossed and stamped the sparklers in the panda’s outstretched arms.  After I stamped and embossed additional bursts from the Sparklers Alpha set, I blended some Lofty Mint dye ink (with Clarity Brushes) at the top and base of my panel to create some interest.  The stunnah shades are from our Scheduled set which I stamped in our Hot Tourmaline ink.

Next I created a blinking slide switch circuit for the light up aspect of my card.  The trick to using this kit is to match up the positives and negatives (in a nutshell).  The kit comes with a great sketch book or activity book that’ll get you ready to start crafting with these lights in no time.  The kit is so easy to use (and fun too!) and the instructions are so easy to follow.

I decided to go for a blinking slide light up card because I thought that the flickering lights would look more like sparklers.

I had so much fun making this card!  Creating with Chibitronics’ product was so refreshing and unique to cardmaking.  I hope you were inspired by my card and video today! Your next stop on our Chibitronics Collaboration Hop is Vera.
