Throwback Thursday: Mirror Stamping

TBT Mirror Stamping Panel Throwback Thursday: Mirror Stamping

Welcome to Throwback Thursday where today we’re showing you how to mirror stamp. Jennifer McGuire created this cute Only Fish card seen in Stamp It! Cards, Vol. 9 using one stamp but mirroring the image. And no smoke and mirrors were involved! But you do need a slick surface, which in this case Jennifer used a clear plastic envelope. The plastic envelope allows the ink to sit on the surface so that you can press your cardstock or patterned paper on it and transfer the ink image. Magic!

    Hi, the stamp set is Hooked on You by WPlus9 Stamps.

    The ink is actually not a white ink pad, but clear ink that is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

    Hope that helps! So glad you liked card and technique.

    Thank you for the reminder. It is techniques like these, the ones that are seldom used but so much fun, that area good reason I should do technique tags!
