Mirror Image stamping

Today's card uses the stamp set You're Amazing. I received this set at convention and we did Make-n-Takes with it but I haven't used it since.  I wanted to use the elephant stamp. My friend Marcia loves elephants and I told her I had a new elephant stamp and she was very excited. But when I told her he had a birthday hat on, she wasn't sold. So I just had to make a card to show her how cute he was! I used the technique, Mirror Image, on this card. I think it makes the elephant interesting!  I have included a video in this post to show you how to create the mirror image ( if  you don't already know).

Stamp sets - You're Amazing
Card Stock - Basic Gray, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink - Basic Black Classic Ink, Basic Gray (for sponging), Real Red,
         Basic Gray, Real Red and Daffodil Delight markers
Accessories -  Take a Ticket wheel, Ticket Duo Builder punch, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Basic Black 3/8" taffeta ribbon, Stampin' sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals.

I did a lot of sponging with the Basic Gray ink, around the Whisper White focal point, the embossed Real Red, and the tickets.

Here's the video on how to creat the mirror image. Try it!


  1. Another great video! Like the look of this . . . so many possibilities!

  2. Love it, Diane! Well, I'm not sold on the elephant either, but I love the video! Maybe if it were a cute cat that had a hat on... Anyway, keep the video's coming!
