Stampin’ Up Nine Lives Mirror Image Stamping Technique Video Tutorial

January 23, 2019

Notice how my cats are facing different directions? How did I do that?

 It’s Wednesday, it’s Video Day where I will show you how to do Mirror Image Stamping!

Back in the day, Mirror image stamping was done with  the Stamp-a-ma-jig and acetate
but now the Stamparatus and the Silicone Mat make the technique super easy!

You can try this technique with any image you want to face the opposite direction than the stamp would actually stamp. The Dog in the Happy Tails bundle is another great image to mirror image stamp. Can you think of any more  off hand? That’s your homework…

Basic Gray Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side and 4″ x 5-1/4″ for crate
Whisper White: (2) 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the outside embossed panel, 2″ square for sentiment, and the inside of card and a piece big enough for the cat
Smokey Slate: a piece big enough for the cat
Basic Black: 2″ square for the circle border around sentiment

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
