Mirror Mirror On The…Stamp?

Hi friends! Today I am going to share a fun way to double the usefulness of all of your stamps, especially the tricky layering ones!


If you have been stamping for a while you might remember the solid wood mounted “mirror” stamps that you could buy to reverse the image. To use them you stamp directly on the rubber of the mirror stamp with whatever image you wanted to reverse and then stamp the mirror on your paper and get a reversed image. It was pretty cool. The downside is that you could not see where your stamp was going to stamp on paper. That was not a big deal because you could get it in roughly the right place but if you wanted to reverse something with layers it would be a big headache…until now. Watch the video and see how it’s done!

  2. What a great idea. Now this is another use for my gelli Plate. Thanks so much.


  3. That was a great tutorial, thanks. I have a question can you tell me where’s the best and cheapest place to get a jelly plate, and stazon jet black ink pad refill? Oh and online we don’t have much selection where I’m at. I really would appreciate it. Barb


  4. This card is sooo darn cute! Keep ’em coming!


  5. Great tutorial Lindsay! I have a totally unrelated question. I thought you had mentioned in a tute at some point about making your own alcohol blending solution and how to do it but I can’t find it now. Did you or am I crazy? Haha. Thanks, Jackie.
