Mirror Stamping Planner Clips with DT Cheryl

Hello Divas! It's Cheryl with the DT sharing a tutorial on making planner clips using the Mirror Stamping Technique! What's really cool about using mirror stamping is that you can create a planner clip that's gorgeous from the front and back!

What you'll need:
  • Stamp press (preferably with magnets)
  • Acetate
  • Mirror stamp
  • Clear stamp 
  • Ink
  • Cardstock
  • Coloring media
  • Jumbo paper clip
  • Glue
  • Foam Tape
  • Scissors 
First I placed the clear stamp onto a sheet of acetate and placed it where I'd normally put paper in the stamp press and secure with magnets. Then I place the mirror stamp on the top of the stamp press (where I'd normally put the clear stamp).

Then I ink up the clear stamp and then close the press and tap lightly to transfer the ink to the mirror stamp, repeat the process one more time but be cautious that the acetate and clear stamp did not move! If you only ink up your image once, the mirror image will look a little light like a second generation stamp image.

Now that the image is on the mirror stamp, quickly remove the acetate and clear stamp from the stamp press and replace with a sheet of card stock. Close the stamp press and press firmly. Now you have a nice mirrored stamp image!

Next I stamped out the clear stamp like normal and then fussy cut the two images. Because I used Versafine ink, I used a water-based marker to color in the angels. After coloring I glued a jumbo paper clip onto the back side of one of the angels, make sure that the side of the clip you glue down is the side with just one loop!

Then I added foam tape on the edges of the die cut and then place the mirrored image die cut carefully so that it aligns with the other die cut image.

There you have it! A super cute planner clip that looks adorable all around!
