Reflection Technique

Here is a quick tutorial for creating a reflection of a stamped image on your card.

Wetlands - Stamp With Amy K

Start by stamping your image on your card stock.  Then ink up your image again and stamp it on the smooth side of the plastic image sheet that comes with your Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Turn the Stamp-a-ma-jig sheet face down and line it up under the image that you’d like to reflect.  Press the sheet to your card stock and gently run your fingers over the Stamp-a-ma-jig sheet, making sure that you transfer the ink from the sheet to your card stock.

Lift the Stamp-a-ma-jig sheet to reveal your reflected image.  Super simple and a cool technique!

Here is another example card that I created where I only inked up part of the stem image from the Too Kind stamp set.  I wanted one stem to face to opposite direction, so this is how I was able to accomplish that.

Too Kind 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the image the normal way on my card stock, cleaned my stamp with my Stampin’ Scrub, then inked up the smaller stem again and stamped it on my Stamp-a-ma-jig plastic sheet.

Too Kind 5 - Stamp With Amy K

I turned the plastic sheet over and placed it, then pressed down to create the opposite facing stem.

Here is the final result on my completed card.  I hope that you have fun making reflections!  If you’d like to see more information about this card, click here.
