You're Pawsome

Hello everyone,
It's Merlina here, just stopping by to share a card with mirror-stamping techniques.


These are some steps to make reverse-image :
Ink up the stamp and stamp it onto an acrylic block (if you use a stamp positioner, you can repeat 2 or 3 times onto an acetate to make the image sharper)
Then, stamp the block onto a piece of paper.


As there are so many mirror stamping techniques, and I think not all images can be made to reverse-image, there are some tips to consider :
- The reverse-image will be a second generation stamped image, so the ink will be lighter than the original, so it will be better for reflection and shadow.
- You can stamp the second generation image with any media, such as plain rubber stamp, acrylic block, or acetate, however a stamp positioner will be more helpful to transfer image easier, as you can stamp several time onto the same positon.
- Slow drying ink will also help to transfer image

Our Friendship is the Best Adventure

Hi everyone, it's Merlina here with a card to share.
Today I made a waterfall card, featuring Get Wild Stamp Set




 Firstly, cut the base of the card with Hip-hip-hooray-paper-pad, and also 4 small pieces for the images (the green and yellow) using Fancy-frame-dies.
Then cut a strip (orange) for waterfall effect  2"x9", score at 2", 2,75", 3,5", and 4,25" and make it like the picture below :

Then prepare the images and paste on the 4 small pieces.
Put the first piece to the bottom, then the second one, and do for the rest.
Put ribbon to make it easy when you pull the card.

Dream Big

Hello Divas !!
It's Merlina here, with a card to share with you.
I really fall in love with this Dreamland stamp set, they are soooo cute.
For this card, I made a simple card, and I use no patterned paper.
Firstly, I colored up the Dreamland images with Zig kuretake, and then I made the blending background with Distress Ink Pad.
For windows, I used  Picture-frame-die, and add some Pastel-paradise-sequins for finishing.
And here for closer look :

I hope it can inspire you to create better creations.
