Every day in the month of February, 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.
We will have the entire list with links to everyone’s post on the So Suzy Stamps blog so you can come back and see the inspiration on a daily basis. We will also be sharing the cards on Facebook and Instagram, just in case you miss a blog post.
For my card today, I used our new Brushed Love, Fresh Cut Garden Roses (Layered + Outline) stamp sets!
Don’t forget to subscribe to our Youtube Channel as I update it weekly with more inspiration on our products!
I started off by mirror image stamping the large love sentiment in our Crystal Pewter Dye Ink. Next I transferred the reflected impression onto an A2 sized card panel. I then stamped the Love onto that panel using our Light Onyx Dye Ink creating a reflection of our sentiment. Next I partially heat embossed the large sentiment with silver glitter embossing powder creating a slight “stardust” effect.
Next I stamped the roses and foliage from our Fresh Cut Garden Roses in our Dusty Blues Dye Inks. For the foliage, I used our Noir, Light Onyx and Smoky Quartz dye inks. I heat embossed additional foliage from the coordinating outline sets to add interest to my final floral arrangements. After everything was stamped and embossed, everything was die cut using the coordinating dies.
Next I trimmed my stamped and embossed panel about 1/4 inch on the right and bottom edges. Then I stamped the Sending above the Love sentiment in our Crystal Pewter Dye Ink. I initially stamped the Best Wishes part of the sentiment in our Noir Dye Ink below the large love. I was not satisfied with how that turned out so I ended up white heat embossing the same sentient onto light gray cardstock and then popped that up over the original black sentiment.
NextI stamped our Freestyle Stripes (in Arctic Sky Dye Ink) onto a top folding A2 cardbase using a Speedball Baren to help me obtain a nice even impression. Then I popped up the stamped panel onto the base with foam tape. Then I arranged the florals and foliage at the two edges and popped those elements up using additional dimensional foam tape.
