Reverse Technique

We always love a good technique and this one comes in handy for those once in awhile times when you need your image to go in the opposite direction. Our bear stamp from the Floral Bear Set was facing the wrong direction for my Hello Summer card that I had created using our Summer umbrella die.
I simply inked up the bear using Versafine Black Onyx and then stamped it to the back of the square red rubber block. Then I quickly stamped the block onto the white cardstock. The line isn't quite as crisp but it definitely does the job.
Here are some of the products used for this card.
Floral Bear Set
Hello Typed Die
Umbrella Die
and a good basic solid red rubber wood block
Add this technique to your list of something to try out. It works best with an outline image. It's a great technique when you need to reverse the direction of your stamp. Have a great crafting weekend!


  • Omigosh! I just got my first stamps from y’all and I’m W H A A A, screaming for how extremely precious they are in real life! I can’t get over it. I’m so incredibly stoked! Boho owl slays me! I named mine gigi. Plus the bonus treat! Gahhh! My heart is so happy!

  • Great tip! I love it!!
