Mirror Image Stamping Technique

 Hello and Welcome to my Blog.

Wishing everyone good health as we move through out winter months.

Today, I would like to share a new technique I tried by making this card.  If you have 30 minute of play time, give it a try.  It takes a bit to master the Mirror Image Stamping Technique.

Head to You Tube and search out Mirror Image Stamping and you will see a few video's that can show you how to stamp a mirror image of a stamp.

I am supporting small business stamping companies by playing along with challenges that I will link below so that you can visit their websites.

Simon Says Stamp Blog has a Monday and Wednesday weekly challenge.  Check it out HERE.

Simon Says Wed. Feb. 17th challenge was titled "Favorite Technique"  

Here is my card I have designed to incorporate several challenges. 

Lawn Fawn has presented a sketch challenge  # 95.

One of my favorite go to tools is the  Clear Design Scrubber Pad for stamp cleaning.

Check it out at the Hero Arts STORE.

Hero offers a great selection of embossing powder as well.  I have used 

PW119 Detail Black  Embossing Powder

Check out "A blog named Hero".

Penny Black



Hello my friends and Penny Black fans! I created a Christmas Card with my new dies from 

Penny Black. 

The Ornamental Branch I believe is going to be my favorite die from Penny Black.  I also used the stamp set called Special Friends by Penny Black.

I was inspired to create my card below from designer Judy Hayes from Scrapbook Adhesives blog.

Titled Holiday Package Topper.


I’m entering my card in the following challenges: 


Crafty Hazel Nut Christmas Challenge Blog. 

Simon Says Wednesday Layer it Up Challenge.

There are a few ways to interpret this theme, you can layer papers and ephemera etc or use layering stamps and stencils!
