Book of Time

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Gosh this week has flown by…

We have some more awesome inspiration to share with you here on the blog, first up today is Teresa Morgan…


So, how do you like the new stamps? I love the time themed sets and have created a zig zag book to show off the wonderful words in the set.



Front and back covers…



My pages and covers are coloured with Distress Oxide Inks. I used more Distriss Oxide inks to stamp the numbers in the background, and used Versamark ink for the stamps I wanted to emboss in gold







The sentiments are stamped with Ranger Archival Ink.




Stamps Used:


Ahead of our Time




Somewhere in Time




Amazing project! How awesome does the gold embossing look against the oxides.. love it! Thanks Teresa ♡

The Name is Bond…

Hi there! We are back with our final post for today and it’s an amazing card by Dot Leathbridge…


I’m here with a fun card that I’ve made using all three of the NEW stamp sets from Visible Image.

Every time I looked at the sets I kept on seeing James Bond.  So that was the beginning of this card.  ‘James’ (from ‘Ahead Of Our Time’) is made using distress oxides and my Misti to create an interesting take on the gentleman silhouette.  The background is created using more distress oxides…





How awesome is the Alphabetical set of stamps though!  You can write absolutely ANYTHING with them.  There is no limit to what words you can make…





If you look closely you can also see the OO7 numbers scattered around the base of James…



And the large splat from the ‘Somewhere In Time’ set was used to create a border and to add some numbers to the background.

Just the edge of the spat in this set was used.  What I like is that you can use a little, or lot, of the splat to create a border.


Somewhere In Time




Ahead Of Our Time




Time Flies By

Hello! Another hot and sunny day here in South Wales today! But at least there is a little breeze today!

Corrie Herriman is up next here on the blog today, sharing an awesome card…

Hello everyone,

Today I have a card to share which I made for with some of the new Visible Image stamps.
I love them… so many possibilities.



I used one of my gelli prints. I love gelli prints…

I stamped the clock on it first then added the birds. I added splatters and doodling in white and black and added some background stamping too. Lastly I stamped the sentiment on white card, matted it on black card stock and glued it to the card panel. Lastly I adhered the panel to a white card.


I used the following stamps:




Time Spirals

Good Morning! (or afternoon/evening!)

We have 3 amazing Design Team projects to share with you today, first up is an awesome MDF Monolith by Veerle Moreels…



When you first see new released stamps all those ideas start spinning around in your head. Especially when seeing all these lovely words in the ‘Somewhere in time’ set. I’m a sucker for word…and have a soft spot for strong words.




And one of the first ideas when seeing the clock in ‘Ahead of our Time’ was this… trying to create a fossil look. As the shape of this clock immediately reminded me of that shape of old fossilized shells.




To get the word time to pop up I stamped it onto paper and fussy cut them out. Another layer of texture ^.^ Remember the June challenge over at Visible Image is called ‘dimension’ …you can still join in for your chance of winning a £40 coupon!




The complete project was made onto a monolith so I can put this little reminder out to see every day. Now to figure out what to put on the back ^.^

Billy’s Summer Garden

Hi again! Wow we are spoiling you with inspiration today!!!

Up next is Jane Tyrrell with a superb project featuring our awesome Curious Cats stamps…


A while back I shared a sneak peek of the Visible Image Designer 3D challenge feature for Craft Stamper Magazine. This piece is also very relevant inspiration for the “dimension” challenge running over in the Visible Image Facebook group. All the details and links for this will be at the end of this post.

As you may know, my garden is a constant source for my crafting inspiration. Billy my cat is also a constant shadow out there and he really loves the summer months when we spend many pleasant hours outside.


Billy has a friend called Blackie who visits, so when it came to choosing a set of stamps to work with for my project, I did not hesitate to chose this one…

the amazing Curious Cats set…


I used a Visible Image MDF Monolith and added some die cuts for initial texture


and gave it some colour using these “garden inspired” PaperArsty fresco paints.


I also added some texture paste through my dots and floral stencil.


To give me this base.


I added some shading and the fun paw prints from the set


I stamped my Cat face and carefully applied it.


I then stamped a small dragonfly from the Live in the Moment set



I stamped, embossed and fussy cut out the small cats and die cut some floral elements



It was then time to put on my creative hat..

and here is my finished ‘Billy’s Summer Garden’ Monolith




and a few close ups…


I made a picket fence from coffee stirrers and added a texture paste path


and Glossy Accents to his eyes and his sweet pink nose….😻




and to prove that Billy really has a friend called Blackie who visits I took this snap last week..




Thanks so much for stopping by today and for the very kind comments that you take the time to leave. Thank you also for all the lovely messages, texts and emails sent to me after seeing the Create and Craft show too. I love finding out that I can inspire people in their own crafting. I am happy to share my knowledge and techniques.. sharing is caring in my books and we are all on a fun creative journey.


Back soon.
Bye for now,

Jane x

Live Life Now

Hello…

As promised we are back with more fantastic inspiration here on the blog today! Teresa Morgan made an amazing project which we proudly showed off on our Create and Craft TV shows recently. Here’s Teresa to tell you more…


I have another mixed media project to share with you all again this week using the fabulous ‘Live Life Now’ set of stamps from Visible Image. I used my stamps to decorate a set of ATBs (artist trading blocks) from Calico Craft Parts.




I was inspired to create an Oriental colour scheme and used Dylusions Ink Sprays to colour some white cardstock. I paired Bubblegum Pink with Cherry Pie, and Polished Jade with Vibrant Turquoise. Once dry, a quick spritz of gold mica spray added some shimmer. I die cut the circles then started to stamp and emboss with black and gold.



                          



I edged all the cubes with gold embossing powder to continue the theme, and embossed butterflies on to the top of each cube.

Time…

Hi there! There’s lots of gorgeous inspiration coming your way here on the blog again today!

First up we have an awesome project by Elina Strömberg to share with you, created with some of our NEW stamps…

Hi!
The Visible Image June Facebook challenge is ‘Dimension’. I love adding dimensional elements on my projects, and the new ‘Somewhere In Time’ stamp set was just perfect for creating this 3D tag:



The clock is stamped three times, once on the tag, and twice on a piece of white cardstock. I coloured the white clocks with yellow and orange Promarkers, cut out, and layered the pieces on the tag using foam stickers. For the background I used several layers of Distress Oxide inks, and created some pattern using the new pattern stamp with numbers (included in the same stamp set). Before inking the background I masked the smallest clock pieces with masking fluid, and removed the fluid before starting the layering.





The quote is stamped and heat embossed on white vellum, and attached on the tag with two-sided tape.




I hope my dimensional project inspires you to play along our June challenge. Maybe you’ll be the lucky one to win a £40 coupon to the Visible Image online shop!


For more information on the stamp set I used, please click on the picture below:



Wishing you a nice day.
Hugs,
