Two Cards Using Mirror Stamping

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming by to Lawnscaping Challenge blog. It's me, Marina, here again to share with you not one but two cards :) I am a huge fan of stretch my stamps and I have shown you how you can turn your christmas stamp set to a non-christmas card, vice versa. Today, I'm going to show you how you can stretch the image in your stamp set.

I'm featuring the cutest cup in the Love You a Latte stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I will show you how to make a mirror image of out the cup so that it's facing each other.

First, you have, of course, choose the stamp image that you want to "mirror" then choose another stamp that is bigger than your choice of image. I used this flower image. I stuck my flower image to my block but the other way. Meaning, the flat side (the non-stamping) will be facing up. You can see it in the image below.


Next, I stamped my mug on to the flat side of the flower stamp. You have to take note that it will feel "slippery" so do not press too hard. 


And lastly, I stamp it on my paper and you will have a mirror image of your stamp. 


 As you can see below, it did not give me a perfect crisp stamped image but I can always go around it with a thin black marker/pen :)


These are two cards I've made using this technique.





Hope you've enjoyed my cards today. And don't forget to subscribe to the Lawnscaping blog and Facebook page. And also, to stop by my blog for more ideas!

  1. I'll have to give this a try. I bought a block that is suppose to be a reverse stamping block but it does not seem to work for me.
