Hello everyone!! Just popping in to let you know that I’m over at Heffy Doodle with a new video!! In today’s video I tackle mirror stamping and share my favorite tips and tricks to getting bold crisp mirrored images!!
Mirror Stamping Tips & Tricks
Watch below or on my YouTube channel.
First I created a slim card base by trimming a 110lb sheet (11”x 8.5”) of white cardstock at 7” to create a 8.5” x 7” base. I then scored and folded horizontally at 3.5”. Next, I used the First Snow Stencil to trace a snow drift onto the trimmed off portion of cardstock created when I made my card base.
I then fussy cut the drift out and ink blended along the top to add the appearence of depth. Next, I ink blended along the top of my card base to create the sky. Once I finished ink blending a splattered some white paint to resemble snow. I then die cut 5 sets of pine trees using the Forest Builder Dies. I then ink blended all the diecuts and glued the trees together.
Next, I stamped my sentiment and all my images (except for the dog I wanted mirrored) from the Wanna Build a Snowman and Yappy Happy Mail Stamp Sets in Memento Tuxedo Black and then set them aside.
I then used the matching dies to die cut an unstamped diecut of the dog I wanted to mirror. I then popped the Water Media Mat into my MISTI. Next, I tapped down the cardstock negative to the mat and then positioned the stamp inside the opening. Once the stamp was in place I folded my MISTI over to pick up the stamp and then stamped the image directly onto the mat. Next, I popped my unstamped dog diecut into the opening of the negative and then pressed all over the diecut to transfer the ink from the mat to the cardstock. I then removed the diecut and repeated this process once more to make the image darker. With all my images now stamped, I then copic colored. Once I had finished coloring, I die cut my images out with the matching dies.
I then adhered the snow drift onto the card front and then stamped the second portion of my sentiment. Next, I adhered the die cut sentiment above the stamped with liquid glue. I then finished my card by adhering all my trees and images with foam tape.
I hope you enjoyed!! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
