Always Be Unique

Hi! We are excited to share some brand new inspiration from Pauline Butcher featuring our fabulous ‘Face it’ stamps…

Helloooooo,
 
Last Sunday I hosted a Workshop in Warwick, we played with some Visible Image MDF Monoliths, and I’ve used one of the techniques, that I introduced to a fabulous group of Crafters.
 




I stamped and heat embossed the gorgeous face onto some heat resistant acetate, using black embossing powder, fussy cut all the facial features, then added them to the monolith using glue gel. I stamped and heat embossed the tree, leaves and the sentiment, straight onto the Monolith.



The stamps I’ve used on the front of the Monolith are…


Face it!



the tree and leaves from Create it!



and the sentiment from Own it!



and of course the Monolith itself…


MDF Monolith




 
 


And the stamp set used on the back of the Monolith is the superb Alphabetical set




a real must have set, to be able to write whatever you want to!

I stamped all the letters I needed onto a separate piece of card, then stamped the squares and circles.
 
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs, Pauline xxxxx

Hi there, we have another incredible card to share with you today, created with our Face it stamps.

Over to Teresa Morgan…


Good Morning

It’s time for another dose of Visible Image inspiration from me. I have been combining the old with the new again this week and have a serene card using the fabulous new Face it! stamps.




I began by spritzing some acrylic sprays on my base card – yellow, red and a slight touch of blue. Once dry I added some larger splats with black, white and green acrylic paint and a fine brush. (Thin the paint with a little water, load the fine brush, then tap the handle to flick spots of paint randomly over the background.)

I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto white card then matted onto black and set aside.




Once completely dry I stamped and embossed the face with black embossing powder, and the Visometry stamps with white embossing powder. I wanted some dimension to the card so embossed some of the smaller shapes onto heat resistant acetate and layered over the larger ones with 3d gel. Some super sparkly Prima gems in the centres finished the card.






Stamps used:

Face it… she’s fabulous!

Hi! Thanks for coming to visit our blog. We are having a massive catch up of all the latest Design Team projects,
after neglecting our blog for a few weeks!

There have been so many amazing cards and projects created with our NEW Face it collection,
and Nicky Gilburt is here with a very special canvas she has created with these gorgeous stamps…


Hello and today I am sharing with you my very first ever canvas, created with the Face it and Create It Stamps by Visible Image.


 


It measures 20 x 20cms and was created in an evening with plenty of stamping, colouring and cutting, and lots of fun!


I simply stamped the features onto the canvas, using a large stamping block behind it, to get a good pressure with my stamp, and coloured from the edge with shades of green distress ink and a blending tool and paintbrush to keep the edges soft.

I added crackles from the fabulous ‘create it’ set, and if you look closely, you’ll see I coloured the eyes in purple,
just to reflect the other-worldliness of the girl. (I also did this on very thin card which I then stuck to the canvas,
so that I could capture the accurate detail of the iris and pupils).
 


 


The flowers were simply stamped in Distress ink onto thin card, and then coloured with a waterbrush. I used all three sizes of flower from the Create It set, on some of them, to build up depth a bit more, then finished off the centres with Liquid Pearls.

For the leaves… I simply stamped the flowers in green, and from each flower I snipped out two pairs of leaves and one single, which, by the time they were strategically positioned behind the petals, were unrecognisable as the same thing!
The finishing touch was the butterfly, Visible Image of course, from the ‘Own Kind of Beautiful‘ set from last year.
 




I am so excited about this project, and even more so that it was featured in the Visible Image Create and Craft TV show
a few weeks ago. I have never seen stamps like this, with which you can construct both human and feline features
(and look out for a mixture of both from my fellow Visible Image design team…!)



Stamps used:


Face it


Create it


Own Kind of Beautiful



Feedback from the release of these sets has been phenomenal, particularly because the crafter can choose the level
of difficulty – she looks as beautiful just stamped onto plain white, or softly coloured paper, as she does all adorned with flowers! So I can’t wait to see lots of interpretations shared in the Visible Image Facebook group.


Happy crafting!
Nicky


Thank you Nicky for this gorgeous project, she looks fabulous surrounded by all those flowers and the pretty butterfly ♡

Colourful Rain – Visible Image Stamps

Thank you for coming to visit our blog today 🙂

We are catching up with all the latest Design Team inspiration from the last few days, kicking off with Corrie Herriman…


Hello everyone,


I can’t get enough of this Visible Image  ‘Sparkle in the rain’ stamp set.  Isn’t it gorgeous…. So you probably haven’t seen the last of it…



Visible Image stamps - Sparkle In The Rain - Corrie Herriman


For this card the background was made with Distress Inks and a blending tool on a piece of white card stock which was cut slightly smaller than the card. I stamped the background with a swirl and water and a script stamp with grey archival ink. Next I stamped the girl under the umbrella and splattered some white ink.  I coloured some book text with the same distress inks and punched circles from it. I adhered these circles randomly on the card panel and then stamped part of the sentiment. I then doodled around the edge of the panel. Lastly I adhered the panel to the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Amazing card Corrie! Loving those circles and the fabulous background! Thank you ♡

Visible Image Debut – Elina Strömberg

Hello 🙂 We are back with our second inspirational project today!

Very excited to be sharing Elina’s debut post as a Visible Image Design Team member…


Hi and Happy Wednesday!

I’m so excited to reveal my first projects as a design team member of Visible Image. I want to thank Helen and Mark, the lovely owners of Visible Image, for this opportunity- working in this talented team is a great honour!

Every other Wednesday I will be showing a new project I have made using Visible Image stamps. I hope will like my creations!


I thought I would start with a little mixed media project; two tags with pink, white and black colours:



 2016-01-27 Visible Image stamps - Imagine - Inspire - Inky Woman - Elina


I started with painting the tags with white gesso. Manila tags do allow you to use wet media, but a thin layer of gesso still makes the surface easier to work with. In addition, gesso is great for creating texture: I was using a large, wide brush, so once the gesso was dry the tags were covered with fine brush mark lines. Cool!

For colouring the tags I used my favourite watercolour media; water-soluable Neocolor II crayons. I coloured the tags leaving some spots white, and blended the crayons with water. To mute down the colours I brayered a thin layer of gesso on top, and once all the layers were dry I was ready to decorate the backgrounds with stamping!



Usually when decorating a background with stamping I don’t mount the stamp on an acrylic block. Creating random patterns by bending the stamp is much easier with a non-mounted stamp. However, this time I wanted to stamp with acrylic paints, and spreading just a thin layer of paint on the stamp was so much easier when the stamp was firmly on the acrylic block.

Remember when stamping with acrylic paints, gesso or gel medium always to clean your stamps right after stamping. I’m not too good at cleaning my stamps, but I never leave acrylic paint on my stamps. If the paint dries on the stamp you will not get it off and your stamp is ruined! For cleaning my stamps I like to use a very soft toothbrush; it cleans the stamp properly but yet very gently.



The black heat embossed faces were stamped using the mirroring image stamping technique. I stamped the mirrored image on fun foam and was surprised how well that worked. There’s no need to stamp on the back of my stamps anymore!



For the second tag I used the same ‘Woman INKognito’ stamp again, but as the main background colour was black/grey, I covered the image with purple embossing powder instead of black.


The lovely quotes are from a stamp set called ‘Imagine Dream Inspire’. I’m sure this set will be used for many projects in the future, it’s so versatile!

Smile Sparkle Shine – Winter Mannequin

Hello and thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today.

We will pass you straight over to Teresa who has a very warm welcome for you…


Welcome back to a new year of Visible Image inspiration!! I can’t wait to share new stamps and projects with you all – 2016 is going to be full of exciting new designs and products. Today I am sharing a mixed media piece that I made for the January issue of Craft Stamper magazine



Visible Image stamps - Mannequin - Mixed Media - Teresa Morgan


I used a paper mache torso mounted on a wooden spool and coaster for the base. A couple of coats of gesso prepared them for decorating. I used DecoArt modelling paste and a burlap stencil to add texture to areas of the torso. DecoArt Crackle paint and antiquing cream was applied to the stand.

I used the Universal set of stamps to add pattern to the torso, embossing with WOW embossing powder in white, pink and silver. Blue mica spray added extra colour.



Visible Image stamps - Mannequin - Mixed Media - Teresa Morgan 2


The sentiment is stamped and embossed onto tissue paper before being glued in place with Mod Podge. I added silver Stickles and blue gilding wax for extra sparkle and shine. Some pretty floral trim adds the final decorative touch.

Best Days @ Visible Image

Hi There! Thank you for visiting us here today!

We have an amazing tutorial from Kim Robertson to share with you with some fantastic techniques. Hope you’ll have a go!  

Here’s our mega talented Kim…


Hi Folks

As promised here is the step by step for my recent pink card that was done in aid of The Big Pink week for Breast Cancer awareness.

To remind you of my Pink card here it is…



2015-10-16 Visible Image stamps - Big Pink Blog Hop - Best Days - Kim Robertson



And here is the full step by step…




To start I took a rectangle piece of white card and used some picked raspberry and spun sugar distress inks to blend it all out to this fade in the above picture. I then used raisin adirondack ink and the script stamp from The Revolution set and stamped off the page in a random pattern, but leaving the top right and bottom left corner fairly clear.




Next I tore the paper toward me on those two corners that I left blank to expose the inside core. I used some of that raisin ink to rub those edges and also some Walnut stain Distress ink to darken them a little further. Set aside to dry.



I took a larger piece of white Card and glued the pink hessian I had in my stash to it to the left hand side.



I added foam to my first piece and added it to the second with some wet glue to stick on the Hessian really well.



Then I gave it a black mat to sit on which instantly makes the darker ink stand out.



I used some dripped glue with some Frantage embossing powders and glitter to add some interest to the the top right of the card as I knew I was going to attach something above this.



I stamped this lovely sentiment out and tore the edges inking the same way as the last piece with raisin and a little Walnut stain. Raising it up on to foam and adding it on a jaunty angle to the card front.



Next I took a plain white resin piece, which was a side on butterfly or moth one or the other and added some pink to it with a Promarker and the added glued and cover in glitters. This I glued above the embossing we did and to the to right of the sentiment.



Here is a close up




All that was left from here was to add a little breast cancer symbol in ribbon topped with a pearl and I tied a bow using some of the hessian taken from the edges of another piece and added a sparkler to the knot and Voila… complete.



2015-10-16 Visible Image stamps - Big Pink Blog Hop - Best Days - Kim Robertson


Here is the finished item again



The stamps I used were…




I hope you enjoyed this one and you can see what you can do with just a couple of fabulous stamps, and some hessian and glitter too.

Thanks for stopping by as always.
 
Lots of love

Lots of texture and touchy feely items on this one, I really enjoyed playing around and creating this!
I have used the script from the Revolution set and the Best Days sentiment stamp.




Teresa Morgan

2015-10-16 Visible Image stamps - Big Pink Blog Hop - Inky horses - Teresa Morgan

I began by stencilling a starburst with Distress Ink in the background, then stamped and embossed the script stamp from the Revolution Set all over the card with pink embossing powder.

I embossed the horses with WOW powders Vintage Peacock glitter embossing powder.  The Stay Strong stamp is embossed in white, then die cut into a circle. I added detail around the edge with the Plasma stamp embossed in pink. I added Pumice Stone Distress ink to the circle and around the edge of the card to create contrast.




Sue Joseph

2015-10-16 Visible Image stamps - Big Pink Blog Hop - Love Yourself - Sue Joseph

The stamps I used on my very PINK card are the Brick Wall, ‘Love Yourself’ from the No Regrets set and ‘You Rock’ from Max Rocks. Inked, heat embossed and layered on white and black card, finished with a breast awareness badge…… a perfect card for someone going through such a tough time!




Kim Johnny

2015-10-16 Visible Image stamps - Big Pink Blog Hop - Listen To Your Heart - Kim Johnny

I made a frilly pink postcard to share, filled full of love and positivity to carry when it is needed most. Stamps used: Sentiment This is Me set. The big heart is filled with multiple stampings from the Plasma set for the lacy texture.




Lisa Nygards

2015-10-16 Visible Image stamps - Big Pink Blog Hop - Perfect Moment verse - Lisa Nygards

On my card today I’ve used lots of different pink mists and let them blended together. I’ve used a regular white cardstock that I’ve coated with a matte transparent medium before I started.

The Butterfly INKognito is stamped with pink distress in twice and then with black ink on top. The sentense is named Take the Moment, and it’s actually one part of the set. To keep it clean I’ve just added a few bling (pearls) in diagonal corners as embellishments.




Kim Bacon

2015-10-16 Visible Image stamps - Big Pink Blog Hop - Thinking of You - Kim Bacon

I used the beautiful Flower INKognito and the Thinking of You sentiment.

2015-10-16 Visible Image stamps - Big Pink Blog Hop - Never Give Up - Time is Precious - Pauline Butcher


I created my PINK card using these fabulous Visible Image stamps…

Time is PreciousNever Give UpClassic FaceRipped Fishnet, the plasma circle from the Universal Set, and the flourish and script from the Revolution Set.


My background was created using blended Distress inks in Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade, over stamped using the same colours.

Sparkle in Pink – Visible Image Stamps

Good Evening! Thank you for visiting our blog 🙂

We are back to our PINK theme this evening and we have a sparkly pink number from Kim Robertson to share with you!

Over to Kim…

Hi my fellow Crafters

This week sees the start of The Big Pink week all around the country in aid of the amazing Breast Cancer awareness campaigns all over the world. The Visible Image team have been no exception and have been creating some gorgeous pink cards and projects all week, with more to come! Culminating in a fabulous blog hop on Friday with a masssssssive prize (sneaky picture at the end of this post) to win from Mark and Helen at Visible Image and what a fun hop it will be too…. all will be revealed on Friday!


Today here is my Vision of pink sparkliness …



2015-10-14 Visible Image stamps - Smile Sparkle Shine - Kim Robertson


You know how much I love the Colours of the Wind set, and that beautiful big leaf, so I decided to use a couple of different distress inks in of course ‘pink’ tones, and do a background covered in sparkle with the Smile Sparkle Shine sentiment stamped onto the glitter, and brushed out using a damp paint brush.

Here are some photos from along the way creating this one.

 


I didn’t do a step by step for this stage as I have done something similar very recently with this stamp set, and how I ink and stamp tone on tone.  I have also stamped out the little leaves in Versamark and embossed them in clear to start, so they work as a resist in the usual way. The larger leaf was of course stamped off the page and I used Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar distress inks along with a tiny amount of Vintage Photo. I have also used some Raisin Adirondack ink too to add depth in the leaf detailing and, as I knew I wanted to cover this in glitter, some of the leaves would need to be quite dark to show through.

 


I covered the pink in a sticky sheet and made sure it was very smooth before tipping on some very sparkly clear glitter, I added a few mat and layers in white and plum card, I then went back in with the white glue and added another layer on certain parts of the leaves, so I could added some glass glitter for texture on the card too.

In this photo the white glue is still drying and eventually the whole thing turned clear with incredible sparkle, but of course it never shows on camera. Those of you who met me this year at Ally Pally and did the Make and Take, or have seen my items on the amazing Visible Image stand at the shows, will know just how sparkly they are in person.



Here is a close up of the glue drying with the second layer of glitter, you can just keep building the layers if you want a really rustic texture.



So next I inked up my Smile Sparkle Shine stamp with the same Raisin Adirondack which is still a water based ink, so I knew if it skipped in places I could water brush it out.

Luckily the image came out, even though on glitter, perfectly with these amazing quality stamps although of course the higher parts on the glitter looked like it had little dots, so I used my water brush and just smoothed out the colour then left it to dry.

Once it was dry I took a Red Promarker in a nice rich deep tone and added just a few shadows to some of the letters, to make them look bright and vivid in colour, and the alcohol covers the glitter but allows it to sparkle too which looks so pretty.


 

Here is what it looks like after that last stage.

 


On the bottom right corner I decided to add the little breast cancer symbol in ribbon, and on top I added a little pink leaf and a sparkly pink gem. I also added those gems to the corners of the card too.

 

The stamps used for this one…

 

Colours of the Wind

 

 

This Friday is the special Blog Hop day for Visible Image, who are not only being tremendously generous with 50% of sales of the Stay Strong stamp going to this very important cause…




But just look at this amazing prize you could win by entering the blog hop…

 


Oh my goodness, there are characters, including a snowman… a car.. mixed media stamps… backgrounds… an Alien… sentiments and special verses too, something for absolutely every style of crafter wow wow wow!!! In fact there is over £100 pounds worth of stamps here which is wonderful, so be sure and have a go as you never know… Ooo I rhymed…!!!

 

Best wishes to all and I will see you on Friday for the blog hop.

 

Love
KIM

BIG PINK week @ Visible Image

Hi there and thank you for coming to visit our blog today 🙂

We are turning everything PINK this week in support of Breast Cancer Care’s BIG PINK fundraising event!

Our Design Team are getting ready for our BIG PINK BLOG HOP this Friday, October 16th, and have been creating some gorgeously PINK inspiration to inspire you to enter our PINK Show & Tell challenge this month… you will find more details HERE! We really hope you will join in, and help us raise as much as we can for this wonderful charity.


So here’s todays PINK inspiration for you…



Kim Johnny

For my inspiration piece today, I want to share a small canvas I made…


2015-10-12 Visible Image stamps - Leave Your Fears Behind - PINK card - Kim Johnny


I built up the background with some stencils, and drywall tape. The Visible image stamps  Grunge Harlequin and Ink Splats are the border images.

My center is the fabulous Butterfly INKognito.

Leave Your Fears Behind is embossed and cut apart for movement. I adore this powerful statement. It is wonderful!

Have a fabulous week and check back soon more more PINK fun! Kim




Susanne Rose

It’s the month of breast cancer awareness… I made a pink card that should signalize courage and strength! Cancer is a horrible disease and so many people are affected.


2015-10-12 Visible Image stamps - This Is Me - PINK card - Susanne Rose


I used the Retro Dots Background stamp from Visible Image and embossed it with white embossing powder. The embossing acts as a resist to any kind of watercolor. I used Distress Inks to color the card.

For some more texture I used the swirl and the script stamp from the Revolution Set. I added two sentiments, first the one from the Cheshire Cat Set (Which way you go depends on where you want to be) and second “This is Me” from the This Is Me set.

The die cuts are from CAS-ual Fridays and Die-Namites dies. I embossed one of the branches with Distress Embossing Powder.

“This is Me” is stamped with Memento Luxe and embossed with clear embossing powder. I added some half beads and sequins to finish it up.

Susanne



Kim Bacon

I have gone all out for my project today, well, I don’t ever do subtle do I?


2015-10-12 Visible Image stamps - Imperfection is Beauty - PINK card - Kim Bacon


I used Dylusions mister inks on this card and the colours are very intense. But they fit the brief, which is to create in pink.

I have used… the Revolution set, Imperfection is Beauty sentiment and the Free Your Imagination set

Enjoy your week, get crafty and show us what you have been up to!

Happy Days!  Kim




Karen Liddle

As many of my regular visitors will know, I lost my lovely sister in law (more like a sister) Lynn to this terrible decease 4 years ago after a 6 year battle and many, many operations and treatments.

You can read my tribute to Lynn HERE.  The sentiment is very fitting for the kind of person Lynn was.


2015-10-12 Visible Image stamps - Hope For Tomorrow - PINK card - Karen Liddle


I made the background with 3 shades of inks, Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick, and Adirondack ink in Shell Pink.  I then over stamped with various different background stamps:

I stamped the Butterflies on a piece of card and coloured using the same inks as the background, then cut them out and glued them to the piece leaving the wings loose so they stand up, adding dimension.  To finish off I stamped the sentiment from the Time After Time set and added it to the card along with some silver card candy.

Karen

Sparkly Lips Canvas – Visible Image Stamps

Good Morning and Happy Saturday to you!

Sorry we missed yesterday’s post but it was a crazy busy day! We didn’t manage to get everything finished as planned, so today will now be our last day in work before we wind down and get into ‘Wedding mode’ !!! Getting very excited now… just 6 days to go before the big day ♥ ♥ ♥

So here on the blog today we have triple inspiration for you from Pauline, Susanne and Doreen.

First up, here’s Pauline with her latest Visible Image stamps project…

Hi there,

 It’s me, back again, spreading some Visible Image love, superb deeply etched photo-polymer uniquely designed Stamps, which I love to use, can you tell.. lol !!!


2015-08-01 Visible Image stamps - Smile Sparkle Shine - Mixed Media Canvas - Grungy Lips stamp - Pauline Butcher



The very unique stamps I’ve used for this project are……
The lips from Bite meSmile, Sparkle, ShineRipped FishnetInk Splats, and the straight stamp from Edgy.
 
This week, just for a change, I’ve used a 5″ x 7″ canvas, which I primed with 2 coats of white Gesso. Whilst that was drying, I stamped my main images, the lips and the sentiment, onto some heat resistant acetate, using versamark, and heat embossed them with some pink sparkle embossing powder and fussy cut.
 

Right, back to the canvas, I added some grunge paste through a stencil, and dried with my heat tool.

I spritzed it all with water, and sprinkled Brusho paints onto it, spritzed with water again, and then let it all drip down. I also mixed some red Brusho with water, and let that drip down too.

Using some gold paint on the Ripped Fishnet and Edgy stamps, I stamped randomly over the canvas. I found an old jar of white ink in one of my drawers, which had gone very thick, but it was perfect for the white drips and circles !!! I edged the canvas with gilding flake, then glued the lips and sentiment into place, and lastly added Stickles for more sparkle.

Distress Inks, Clingfilm & Gorgeous Visible Image Stamps!

Hello 🙂 We are back with more gorgeous inspiration for you!

Over to Pauline Butcher…

Hi again,
 
Another week gone, and I’m back to share three cards I’ve made using some of the very unique stamps from Visible Image.
 
I have used the same inking technique on all three cards, using glossy cardstock, Distress Inks applied with a Brayer, and then clingfilmed until dry. I love the effect it gives.
 
The first card was stamped in versamark and then heat embossed using black powder. The Visble Image stamps I used were…..
Behind Every MaskBirds and Feathers from Free Your Imagination and Happy Birthday.



Visible Image stamps - Crow Mask stamp - Pauline Butcher






I used the inky side of the flower stamp and distress inks to edge this card, and again heat embossed the main images.
The stamps used here were….. Flower INKognito and an older Visible Image sentiment, that some of you might have.



Visible Image stamps - Inky Flower stamp - Pauline Butcher




And again I used a stamp from the set with Distress inks, to edge this card, and  some frantage powder below the horse.
This is one of my favourite sets to use……  Revolution

Wonderful Words – Visible Image Stamps

Good Evening… a very late post from us today! Let’s just say it’s been hectic here…

On to today’s inspiration. Lisa Nygards has been busy creating with our NEW Express Yourself stamps this week. The results are stunning..



Since colors are so fun to play with, I can’t stop with just one card. The new sentiments are so perfect for stamping on a colorful background. I’ve played with different kinds of mist colors, but not the regular way (misting). I’ve wet the paper (watercolor paper) and then dripped and wiggled the color around. Dripped some more color, dried it, dripped some water on it and more color and another round until I liked it. It can’t be wrong, let the colors guide you!

Then the best part, to find a sentiment that match up with what I’ve created. Now I have several lovely new ones from Visible Image to play with so it became three cards today!

The sentiments used: Lilac card: Take the moment. Brown/Blue card: A best friend. Green card:Stay Strong.

Art Journal Page – Visible Image stamps

Good Evening! Hope you had a great weekend and Monday has been gentle with you!

The rain is pouring here in South Wales today, but we are here to brighten up the day with some amazing inspiration from our wonderful team 🙂

First up it’s Susanne Rose who’s created a fabulous Art Journal page…



I love the new stamps of the Visible Image June Release. They are super modern and perfect for my passion: mixed media and art journaling!


Here you can see one page in my art journal:



Visible Image stamps - Smile Sparkle Shine - Susanne Rose


I used the Marabu mixed media spray inks for the background layer. I really like them, ’cause they are waterproof and I can work on top with my Neocolor II pastels or other watersolubal colors. I used the script stamp from the Revolution set from Visible Image to create more interest on the background.



Smile Sparkle Shine! This is one of the new awesome sentiment stamps from Visible Image. I stamped it onto tissue paper with jet black Archival Ink and embossed it immediately with clear embossing powder. The black will be much more saturated with the embossing on top. The sentiment was adhered with gel medium.


 


The hearts are cut out of a gelli printed deli paper. I use it to wipe of my brayer during a gelli printing session. I lay the deli paper on top of a stenicl and wipe the brayer off.  So I get nice and interesting texturse plus a clean brayer. Deli paper is perfect for collage. It’s thin but not as delicate as tissue paper. I adhere it with Gel Medium.



I also used some of the Ink Splats background stamps from Visible Image on top of the woman’s face.

Isn’t this amazing! Awesome drawing by Susanne and such a cool and funky background… LOVE it! <3

Hope is Everything – Visible Image stamps

Good Evening! Hope you’ve had a good start to the week.

We are kicking off another week of amazing inspiration with the very talented Kim Bacon…



Hello! And welcome to the start of another week!!

 

As you know I am totally addicted to Brusho Paints, and the card for today is another example of what you can achieve.

 

I have used one of my favourite Visible Image stamps, the Gerbera from the INKognito range. I first created the background using turquoise and lime green paints before stamping the flower and the sentiment from the new Express Yourself range using white embossing powder.

Time To Be Happy – Visible Image stamps

Good Morning and thank you for coming to see us today 🙂

Can you believe we are half way through the week already? Time is just flying by! Not only are we busy making so many orders for our NEW releases, but we have also been busy finalising our Christmas 2015 stamps designs… and we know you are going to LOVE them 😉

On to today’s business… It’s Wednesday which means the fabulous Kim Robertson is here to inspire you!



Hello folks


How are you all? I hope everyone is doing ok and enjoying a little sunshine and warmth.


I have another card from the fab Visible Image’s new launch of stamps and I really hope you like it..



Visible Image stamps - Time To Be Happy - Kim Robertson

I went for the clean look again on this one. Well ish… for me anyway haha! But I love the spring out with the old, fresh start vibe to this one.



I started with a square of white card and black archival ink. I stamped the Bronte Border stamp several times in ascending order on the left side .



I then initially stamped my flower head and blotted a lot of the ink off the flower stamp and went around the edge of the flower head again using just the tips of the flower very pale just enough to cast this shadow effect.



The fabulous sentiment from the new launch , so crisp and clean  stamps like a dream some polymer stamps can be too squishy I know you know what I mean haha so that if you press too hard the image blurs and does not look clean anymore, never so with Visible Image. They are an absolutely spot on image.



So using the flower head still I used grey inks and black and the tips of the flower to create this 2nd and 3rd generation stamping border which has the impression of movement on the card.



For a little added interest on the left side I decided to take a small piece of the same white card and stamp the matching part of the border all over it, I mounted that onto a small piece of the same blue card with just a tiny border  I added a little white velvet bow and foam on the back to raise this piece up from the card but as I used the matching piece of the writing you can hardly tell it is there until you zoom in



Here again is the finished image, I was really pleased how this one turned out although is is pretty clean there is actually a lot of stamping gone into this and I just love these techniques…



Visible Image stamps - Time To Be Happy - Kim Robertson



The stamps I used on this one were…

Time To Be Happy

Bronte script 

Thank you set



I hope you managed to see all the fabulous new sentiment and phrase stamps launched recently from Mark and Helen with Visible Image, they are just adorable and I cant wait to get my hands on all of them  There simply is something for everyone and every occasion. Take a look if you haven’t seen them yet here on the new launch page.

Ok friends I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and I look forward to seeing you here again next Wednesday.

Huge Crafty Hugs

Kim

What a beautiful card… love the blue and cream combo.  Perfect card for someone who’s had a rough time of it and are ready to come out the other side.

Have you got your hands on some of our NEW Express Yourself quotes and sentiments yet? Whether making cards is your passion or mixed media is more your thing, we have the perfect words for your projects! You will find them all HERE.

As you probably know… Our stamps are gorgeously thick, beautifully clear, and so deeply etched that you will always get perfectly stamped words and images.. unless of course you are intentionally going for a more distressed look with your project! They are made with the finest photopolymer available, and every stamp is still hand cut by Mark! Our designs are unique, original and different… we love to stand out from the crowd. We do it our way… and you seem to love it 😉 So thank you!

We’ll be back a little later with an awesome new card from Lisa Nygards 🙂

Have a great day!

The stamps I used are –
Bronte Script (background)
Cogs from Time After Time set  (background)
Plasma (background)
Clockwork Heart from Oz Tin Man set
Border stamping – flower stem from Flower INKognito


This background was created by stamping in Versamark, heat embossing with clear embossing powder, then blending inks over.  I did this 2 or 3 times creating layers.


Stamps used are –


Karen



Love these cards… the clockwork heart works brilliantly with our INKognito heart for a really different look! Gorgeous background on the second card too… I think we could all use some ‘ME Time’ and it makes me want to sit in a sunny meadow full of gorgeous flowers 🙂  Thanks Karen!

You can find more of Karen’s fab work over on her blog.

Inky Birthday Flowers – Visible Image stamps

Good Afternoon! Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

We have so much gorgeous inspiration to bring you today from our awesome team! 🙂

First up, here’s Pauline Butcher with some very special cards…


Hi there,
 
This will be my last Visible Image Stamps blog for a couple of weeks, as I’m off to the seaside for a well earned rest, lol !!!!
 
My first card was made for the lovely Helen Michelle’s Birthday (Visible Image Stamps co-owner and marketing wizard, stamp packer, blog writer and general dogsbody, lol) 
 
 
This is the card I made her, using her favourite stamps and colours (I hope)…..

Visible Image stamps - Flower INKognito - Inky Flower - Happy Birthday - Pauline Butcher
 
The stamps I used were…….
 
 
 
I created the background using shaving foam and Dylusion sprays, I heat embossed the Flower Inkognito using black powder, and then painted them with purple Stickles, I used the flower from the Happy Birthday set around the edges, and heat embossed the sentiment to match.
 
 
 
My second card is a little ‘Thank you’ card….

Visible Image stamps - White Feather stamp - Thank You - Pauline Butcher
 
The stamps I used here are…..
The feather from Angels are Near and the sentiment from the Thank you Set’.
 
 
The background is Alcohol Inks on a Glossy Card, the feather was first stamped in Black Stazon ink, along with the sentiment. I then stamped the feather using Versamark onto some black card, and heat embossed in White powder. I fussy cut this out, shaped it and using Gel Glue, added it to the background but offset it a little to give the illusion of a shadow, I put some Stickkles on the top for sparkle.
 
.



A few days left to enter the Visible Image ‘Show and Tell’, for a chance to win some new stamps, all the details are HERE.
Check out the Visible Image Facebook Group, with lots going on HERE
