SAVI Sunday - Episode 34 Mirror Stamping

SAVI Sunday 34 - Mirror Stamping

Thank you for joining me for my next Savi Sunday video showing you how to do Mirror Stamping, also known as reverse stamping.  I am highlighting the Dove of Hope stamp set from the bundle available in the 2020 Holiday catalog (2020 August-December mini catalog).  You'll have to forgive my photography this time as I am away from home and my usual process.  :)

PicsArt_10-16-09.10.14

You can see my video HERE to see the easy method I do using the Stamparatus and Silicone craft sheet.  You will stamp the dove on the right onto the Smoky Slate card stock.  Remove the Smoky Slate CS and place your silicone mat into the Stamparatus and stamp the dove.  Now flip over your CS and place into Stampartus and rub over area where you stamped on the silicone mat to transfer the ink.  The video shows this process so it may be easier to understand. 

Card Details

  • Cherry Cobbler card base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Smoky Slate CS 4 x 5-1/4
  • Dove and words are inked in Misty Moonlight

Thanks for popping by and don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Ornate Style Embossed Watercolor

Hello friends.  I am super excited to share these with you today.  Each card features the floral image from Ornate Style stamp set along with Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Shimmer White card stock.  If you have not noticed, I am on a bit of a watercolor kick lately. 

Make sure to watch my YouTube Video where I water colored with Stampin' UP! Colored Pencils. 

So my projects I am sharing today were done with Aqua Painters.  I picked up color from the lid of my ink pad.  With the ink pad closed, press the center of the lid... give it a little squeeze and when you open your ink pad, there will be ink on the inside lid.  

I wanted to show 3 Different Effects when you use different embossing powders.  Even though Stampin' Up! is retiring black, I went ahead and did anyways.  As an alternative, you can use Stazon Ink!  It is permanent and great for water-coloring.

Timeless Tulips Bundle & Giving It Dimension

PicsArt_02-23-10.09.36

Holy cow!!!  I have been doing it wrong.... Ha! Ha!

Well, okay, maybe not totally wrong.  But I think this make more sense.  Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get notification of my SAVI Sunday videos. 

SAVI = Stamping & various inspiration.  I share some of my secrets, tips and tricks.  Also, I share what I may have discovered while using my Stampin' Up! products.  And here is case in point...

The Tulip Builder Punch punches out the tulip stamp and then a "leaf".  Which is totally fine.  You can use this way.  But I discovered that the shape of the stamp and punch are a match to the one side of the tulip.  Add the punched piece with a couple of Mini Dimensionals and you just gave your tulip some pop!  Literally!

I show you exactly what I mean in my SAVI Sunday Video.  

CARD BASE:  4-1/4 x 11" scored and folded at 5-1/2"

Whisper White:  4-1/8" x 5-3/8"  and laid the Decorative mask over and sponged with Granny Apply Green
