SENDING WARM HUGS WITH THE NORDIC BUNNIES


I've never been much of a bunny fan - I mean I always thought they were cute when I saw them but I never gave them a lot of thought any other time but these bunnies have my heart!
The bunnies in the Bunny Slopes Stamp set are all so cute and I haven't been able put them away. 
This release will go live in the shop on October 28th at 9am EST 
BUT if you're a StampNation member then you get to purchase on the 27th - that's tomorrow people! How exciting is that!!


My card today uses the mirror stamping technique. (At least I think that's what it's called). I have a plain rectangle rubber stamp - no image on it at all - that I place in my MISTI. I find using a stamp positioning tool really helps me with getting a crisp image. I place it in my MISTI, place the bunny stamp on it and pick it up with the lid. I ink up the bunny stamp and stamp it onto the plain rubber stamp. Now I take a piece of card stock and press it onto the newly stamped bunny image. Press evenly all around and when you pick it up you have the reverse image of the stamp. 
If this all makes sense to you - awesome! But if it doesn't and you want me to make a video let me know and I'll do that for you.


The only issue with reverse stamping is there's no coordinating die but that's okay as I don't mind fussy cutting. The image on the left is the original and the image on the left is the reverse stamping image. 

I ran the White Birch Cover Plate Die with an embossing pad and the die cutting machine sandwich through my machine. This stops the die from cutting the paper and it embosses it instead. It's a great way to get double duty from your dies.

I colored the bunnies in with some Prismacolor pencils, added a little heart between them and then stamped the sentiment. 
Really quick and easy card to make.



The links to the new CP products will work as soon as they go live in the shop.
I'll be back tomorrow with another card to share with you.


Happy Stampin'
