Wowzas, this month is just full of excitement and events. First guest designing, than special features, birthday celebrations and now this, a mirror image event. What is that all about you are wondering? The mirror image stamp is a piece of red rubber that is used to stamp an image the other way round and that would not be possible without one amazing stamping tool – the Misti.
Because this is such a unique technique, we all have gathered to show you several ways of how to use the mirror image stamp from So Suzy Stamps and the Misti. And it’s not only about techniques, you can also win some amazing prices 😛 We have prizes from My Sweet Petunia, The Ton, So Suzy Stamps and Simply Charming Everyday:
- 3 – MISTI’s in your choice of Original or Mini
- 4 – $25 Gift Certificates to The Ton

I wanted to show you a mixed media project that I had in mind for a while, but I was never able to get it done. For my project to become reality I had to switch the direction of two of my stamps that I wanted to use and I didn’t have a clue how… till now 🙂
Let me show you my project in a video, that probably makes it easier to see how the mirror image stamp works.
Before the mirror image stamp I had to turn the tissue paper around which made the image blurry and less crisp. Now I can stamp any image the way I want it and position it without the need to live with a foggy version of it 😛
I hope you enjoyed my video and got another idea of how to use the mirror image stamp. I would love to hear what you would use it for 🙂
In addition I used:
- Several Acrylic Paints from Dina Wakley, Art Anthology and Holbein
- Inks from Dylusions and Art Anthology
- Stencils from Stencilgirl, Tim Holtz and Hot of the Press
- Gel Medium and Crackle paint
- Several flowers from Prima and Kaiserkraft, Melange Art Pebbles from Prima, gemstones from Emerald Creek and birds from Maya Road
- Clockwork from Hot of the Press
- 8×10 canvas board from Joann
