I had so much fun with the  Mirror Image Stamp that I got carried away and made bunch of cards. I did film the process, but since the video is long and I got REALLY carried away, I will be posting the video this evening (there is a LOT of editing to do)

For my cards I used the new Hero Arts sets Purr and Woof. The "issue" I had with this set was that all cats and dogs were facing to the left (or forward, ok,ok, one was facing its rear towards me), but none to the right. So this is where the Mirror Image Stamp solved my problems.

If you know know me, you know that I have 3 little ones who love making cards (well 2 of them, the 3 and 5 yr olds) and they give out a lot of cards, so I got carried away with these images and had a LOT of leftover for them to make cards, too. 

For my first set of cards, I used two images (mirror and original) and adhered thread in between, that was I was able to make few spinner window cards with both sides f the images being stamped and colored. :) 

Video is now available (scroll little bit down ;) 







 Then for my second set of cards I used opposite facing kitties or doggies, or their tail being in opposite direction. I think those are the cutest.





Last, but not the least (actually this was the first card I made) , I stamped the mirror image of the dog and the original of the cat and pillow, as I wanted them facing each other. 
Come back later today for the video how to easily make all of these cards!
