Counting Sheep Mirror Image

Stampin’ Up!’s Stamparatus, a stamp positioning tool, makes stamping easier for a number of reasons. It helps you:

  • get your images and sentiments straight, time after time;
  • re-stamp an image if it’s not dark enough;
  • stamp repeat images evenly; and
  • handle the stamping process smoothly, especially if you have arthritic or weak hands.

And, it lends itself well to some fun techniques, including the mirror image technique. It’s the technique that allows the two sheep to look at each other in the card above. 

I used that technique on today’s card with one of the sheep stamps from Stampin’ Up!’s Counting Sheep stamp set. This set and its coordinating Sheep Dies are available during SaleABration — through September 30, 2021. Earn each of these products free with a minimum purchase of $50 (before tax and shipping) for each.

See this post for a variety of other card ideas using these fun, exclusive, and limited-time products.

Be sure to watch the video below to view a visual of how this technique works.
