Mirror image stamping using Arctic Bears


Yes, It's another post with the Arctic Bears stamps! Can't help myself.  I keep coming up with new ideas.Last night I wanted to make a card that was less masculine and more 'pretty' and I wanted to use t he You & Me sentiment.  I thought about placing the bears on a heart background, but in the end I landed on this die from the Christmas Labels dies.  There was just one problem, the bears were not facing each other. 

Have you ever wished that a stamp was facing a different way?   



Both the Big Bear and the Little bear are facing the same way, which is fine I guess but I really wanted them to be looking at each other.  

Luckily, I remembered the Mirror Image Technique, sometimes called the reverse image technique.  







You can use the 'kissing' method, where you stamp onto a larger solid rubber stamp with the bear, then stamp again onto your paper. Or, you can use the Stamparatus for an easier way, where you can stamp a few times for darker images and still line up your dies and cut easily too!  See both methods in my video below.
