MIM #84: Reflected Sentiments

Welcome to MIM at PapertreyInk (Posted on Thursday! It's been a busy week...)
Betsy Veldman's tutorial looked so easy. Had to work on it a bit. Keeping the acetate still was a challenge. But work on it I did, and I love the technique.
Always a joy to learn something new.
The sweet Mr. Bones stamp and die set were used for my card. Can't do just one 'Bonesy', when 2 are even cuter!. Created a background paper with Fine linen ink stamped with the Havest Berries set.
Mr. Bones is die cut in Summer Sunrise cardstock. All PTI cardstock. Orange gingham from Orange zest paper pack. (Not sure what to do with the mounds of other cardstock I have. Reach for PTI's cardstock every time. No comparison).
A bit of black glitter and a ruby red rhinestone are finishing touches.
Love the ability to personalize the skeleton by snipping arms and legs to position them where I want.
Check out Betsy's video and try the "sentiment mirroring" yourself! But be warned... It's not as easy as it looks!


  1. you did a great job mirroring the sentiments - especially multiple times!!!

  2. This is a fun Halloween card...I like how you reflected the sentiment, Nancy.
    PS: I agree, it wasn't easy :)

  3. OH wow, this is fun and cute all in one, love the rows of reflected sentiment, awesome work Nancy!!!!!

  4. What a fun card, love the jointed Mr. Bones! This stamp set is the best!

  5. Great Halloween card love the repeat of the reflected sentiment in different colours.

  6. Your card is super cute!! Love how you stamped the background. Who would have thought that those harvest berries would be so cute as a skeleton background!

  7. SO CUTE! Love these guys so much I could snuggle with 'em...which is weird because they're spooky skeletons. But they're so lovable! Love the happy spiders, too.
