STAMPlorations Inspiration #96

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

My stamp supplies:

The Birds and the Blooms, Stitched Dies

I dry embossed white card stock with an embossingfolder. I stamped the Cardinal onto PP and colored with Inktense pencils. Cut a rectangle with one of the Stitched Dies and glued it onto my card stock. The sentiment is heat embossed and mounted with foam tape.

At our  Inspiration Project posts have a monthly random drawing - 1 commenter wins a $10 gift certificate. So look at all those fabulous cards the Inspiration Girls made and leave them some love! It may pay off :)

Happy Stamping!

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
