A Place To Start November 2020 Challenge: Mirror Stamping

Hello, Crafty Makers!

The Team at A Place To Start has another fun technique challenge for you this month.


This is one of my favorite techniques.  You can use clear stamps or cling stamps and get a wonderful result.  You do not need a stamping platform (but having one makes it easier.)  This stamping technique lends itself to any genre and any creative POV!  

I wanted to use foil on my wonky stitched die to frame my mirror images.  I probably should have let the sandwich heat up a bit more before running through my Big Shot because there are a few stitches that did not get enough foiling!  But still, I like the effect.

I also die cut a small chipboard heart and foiled it with holographic foil.  The chipboard peeking through is just perfect.  I used oil pencils to color the images.  I wasn't going for fancy, I just wanted a little color.

Thanks for the visit!  I hope to see your projects in the challenge

Stuff I Used
Note:  I used the Paper Smooches Mirror Stamp Block.  They are out of stock and difficult to come by, so I have recommended an alternative.
