Posts Tagged ‘Misti’


It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC800) this week & the site I chose is Design Stack & their Pinterest Boards. I found THIS cute pic & used it for my inspiration.

For my card, I also have a fun & useful tutorial. It’s really simple & I’m a little surprised it took me this long to figure it out. This revelation actually came about because of a little accident & I had an “aha” moment when it happened.  My tutorial involves the mirror image little cat on the far left. But the best part is, not only is he a stamped mirror image of the cat on the right, he was also die cut using the same die. So after I colored & die cut the cat on the right & the 3 in the center, I really wanted a mirror image cat. I’ve done the mirror image stamping quite a bit so that part was easy. Since these are clear stamps, I reasoned that the back of a larger clear stamp would be the best choice for my mirror image. I will mention, right off the bat, a Misti is essential to this technique. So here’s what I did: (click on any pic to enlarge)



Up to this point is the normal process for mirror image stamping. The difference is since it’s in the Misti & I didn’t clean off the ink on the original image (that was the accident part), it stamped the image on both sides of the card stock.



This where the “aha” moment kicked in. Since it was stamped using the Misti, the stamped image is exactly in the same spot on both sides. I taped the die to the right (normal) side..the side the die actually fits.


Finished! I did 2 of these to show you the right side & the mirror side. With this little trick it’s now possible to die cut a mirror image. Yay! No fussy cutting! I will mention that I made sure to have a smooth surface (I used the metal shim under mine) for the mirror image (cutting side). Otherwise you’ll have ridges if your cutting plate is well used.

The background was stamped w/ the Color Fuse inks & another coffee set. Here are the Copics I used.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS737) this week, so a big congrats to Sandy! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS card to case. I kept the floral in the oval & birthday theme, but used different stamps & dies, added a designer paper & turned the layout horizontal.

I’m using some new items..the clear stamp set & layered script You are to be released this coming week! After stamping & coloring the carnation, I used the out of the box technique & an oval die to cut it. The first part of the greeting was stamped & I masked of the rest & replaced it w/ the layered word die.

Here are the Copics I used. I went back in later & added a light shadow on the right side w/ C2 & C3 markers, so they aren’t shown below. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll get the link for the new Layered Script Word die up as soon as I get it.

Merry Christmas! For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC786), we have a Pinterest Board of fabulous doors & I was inspired by THIS door. There are actually a bunch that had stained glass that I loved, so I kind of combined them w/ the green of my chosen door.

For my card, I colored the veined leaf bg (it reminds me of stained glass) & die cut the layers. I thought it needed a little something so I colored & fussy cut the flowers. The center green & black panel is popped up a bit w/ fun foam.

Here are the Copics. I had colored the background a while back so the Copics used are shown for both the bg & the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Holidays!
