My Favorite Things – Mirror stamping

Hi everyone! I'm back with another project I made with some November release stamps from My Favorite Things!

Here is my card showcasing the newest Birdie Brown Merry Christmoose stamp set: 





As mentioned in the blog post title, I used the MIRROR (OR REVERSE) STAMPING TECHNIQUE for this card. It’s a super fun technique and great for small images! First, I stamped my hot cocoa cup as usually with Black Hybrid Ink from MFT. To create the mirror image, I inked up my stamp again (with the same ink). But this time, I stamped the cup directly onto a blank piece of mounted rubber stamp and then I quickly transferred the ink from that rubber stamp to my paper. Finally, I used a black pen to darken the outlines… that’s it! I colored the 2 cups with Copic markers and fussy cut them. To finish off my card, I fixed everything together with tape and foam pads and I stamped the "Sending You Warm Hugs" sentiment – also from the Merry Christmoose set – to the background.
