Default Reverse Image Stamping

Hello ... I was wondering if anyone could give me instructions on how to do the reverse image stamping? I've seen a lot of cards where the image of the stamp is going the other way. Also, how do you do the reflection images?

Thanks in advance!

Bump! I saw some great cards with this technique a while ago, didn't have the time to figure it out then, and I'd love to know too how they did it. I wish I were smarter about searching around SCS, tried a quick gallery search with little luck. C'mon you talented folk you, tell us! How'd ya do that?!

To do the reflection of the tree on this card, first I stamped the main (right-side-up) image. Then I inked the tree again and stamped it directly onto the rubber of the large square of the retired set The Shape of Things. Then I stamped that onto the cardstock, underneath the original tree image. Hope that makes sense!

Any stamp with a large solid area of rubber would work for this technique. Unfortunately, there don't seem to be any in the current SU catalog. If you have the just-retired Great Shapes set, the square or the rectangle would do the trick.

I know that I have seem similar stamps at Michael's made for reverse stamping. They are like a background stamp, but just a large flat surface on which to stamp your image before stamping onto your project.
I'm surprised that SU doesn't offer this type of stamp, although I understand that they used to. Maybe they will bring it back (like they did the color spritzer).

I usually stamp my image on cardstock. Reink and stamp it again on a piece of acetate. Turn it around, place it where you want it to be and then rub over it to transfer the ink.

I use the acetate method as well -- but find it easier for me to stamp the acetate image first, then use the "right side up" stamp to get everything lined up.

KEWEL.... I have never heard of (or thought of) using acetate! I am SURE that works better than rubber. I have tried that in the past, and have never been 100% happy with the result!! THANKS!!!

BTW, PH in VA.... VERY neat card!!

You can also use vellum. Stamp it, flip it over (giving you the reverse image), then stamp again on the front. The reverse image might be a little bit lighter, but in most cases, you can't really tell.

I've used the brayer too. Just make sure it's the rubber one.

Smile Reverse Image

To get a reverse image ink up the stamp, front roll a brayer over it, the backroll the brayer on the paper, this takes getting use to so be patient and practice. Ladybug1968

Default Reverse image

in the past I have used wax paper. Just stamp the image on wax paper then flip it upside down and with a warm iron press down on the back side of the wax paper. It works really well for a reflection on water effect. Put a piece of paper between the wax paper and the iron so it doesn't mess up the iron.

hope that helps, if you can find the wax paper sandwich bags, they are thick and a little easier to work with. you would probably get a sharper image with the blank rubber stamp technique but the wax paper does do a nice "reflection"

I think I've heard of "mirror" stamps that they sell for this technique. Any old large rubber shape should work the same as long as your image fit onto it.
Thanks for sharing.

Beate - Thank you SO MUCH for the acetate idea! I just tried it with "Lovely as a tree" and it worked beautifully. With the acetate, you can see exactly where the image will go, so stamp it last. No need for a positioner! I'm going to do one of these at my next stamp club meeting.

I like to use the plastic piece that I use with my stamp-ma-jig.

Acetate method works - I have used it. Also read that you can use your clear blocks.

Digitally! Stamp it (a nice clear image) scan it and flip it either in Studio or Word, or probably other programs I don't know of, easy peasy. You can re-size it then as well.

Default Mirror Stamp

Rubber Stampede sells a Mirror Image Stamp that is the easiest way to do reverse images. Stamp original image, then stamp your original image on the Mirror Image stamp (I use a lighter color if the stamp is a water reflection, same ink as original for twin stamp image) then stamp the Mirror Image stamp beside your original image. Couldn't be simpler and works every time.
