How to do mirror stamping - Totally Techniques Blog Hop

Welcome crafty friends have you ever wanted to reverse an image or mirror it to create one image looking at the same but in reverse?  Here is one way and you'll find others on our global Stampin' Up! demonstrator blog hop. 

I've used the online exclusive stamp set Trucking Along with some of our new In Colors which are launching on 1 May.  

All you need is a silicon mat, black ink, white card and an outline stamp to get started.  The video will show you how to create simple cards like mine with the same image reversed or mirrored.  I've added detailing to the above and below cards by using the scoring tool on my trimmer or you could use a scoring board. Flip your design face down so that you score on the reverse to 'push' the card up or emboss it on the front.  

For more detailing you can add mini pennants with offcuts of your papers and coordinating embellishments.  With Stampin' Up!'s colour coordination through ink, paper, card and gems it is easy to create a coordinating design.  I love the new In Color resin dots perfect for simple additions on handmade cards like this. 

I also used Stampin' Blends, alcohol markers in coordinating colours to colour my images.  I chose not to mirror the truck contents because getting them stamped into exactly the right spot would make it tricky , but of course you could fussy cut to add them once you have done the mirror technique in my video.
