Dare To Swim

Hi there! Helen here sharing some NEW stamps inspiration from me today!

I created this pretty much as soon as the new stamps arrived here, as I could not wait to get my hands on them.


I have used our beautiful Dare To Swim set…


First of all I had lots of fun creating a sea background using turquoise, green and yellow brushos,
letting the colours merge and run

IMG_2358



I decided I would make a piece of home decor rather than a card, so once dry
I cut the card to size and painted the edges and base of my Monolith using Dylusions paint


IMG_2402



I stamped and embossed the large jellyfish using red/gold embossing powder
which turned more of a copper colour on my background which I really like.


I stamped the fish and sea weed using distress inks, and then dabbed the fabulous little bubbles stamp into
white dylusions paint and added randomly.

I used some diluted white paint to create a glow on the jellyfish.

Lastly I stamped and embossed the beautiful quote using white embossing powder.

How beautifully it stamps…

So here is my finished project…

True Colours

Hi there! Thank you for coming to read today’s post! Teresa is here with some awesome Face it! inspiration…



It’s that time of year again!!! The DT are finally getting their hands on the long awaited
new release stamps from Visible Image, and this week I have been playing with the cool Face It! and Own It! sets.



2017-02-02 Visible Image - Face stamps - Face it - reveal your colours - Teresa Morgan


I wanted to create a funky 80s feel by colour blocking over the features.
I created masks for the eyes and mouth so that they would remain white,
then used a square punch to cut my rectangular stencils.



Visible Image Stamps - Face It!, Own It!


Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, and Broken China were applied through the masks,
I created then extra detail was added with a ‘halftone’ stencil and black ink.

The words are coloured with Tonic Brush Script pens.

News & 25% OFF code @ Visible Image

Hi there!

Thank you for taking time to visit our blog today.


As you may know, we have recently re-branded and we’re loving our ‘new look’ colourful packaging…





visible-image-promo-oct-2016



We have now stopped manufacturing the stamps ourselves but we continue to package them all in house,
and everything is still designed by Mark.

As quality is always top of our list, the etching is the deepest possible for clear photopolymer stamps,
so as always they stamp beautifully.




We had struggled to keep up with the demand for our stamps with just Mark making them,
and the waiting time for orders was long. 

So we are very happy to announce that orders placed by 2pm Monday to Friday
will now be dispatched the same day!



Our stamp sets are now larger in size so we have been busy designing additional stamps
to compliment our existing sets…











You will find ALL our current designs HERE!


Sadly due to family commitments we aren’t at the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC this year.
We will really miss seeing all our regular customers at the show.

But… to celebrate our ‘new look’ we are giving you 25% OFF our stamps!*

Just enter coupon code: newlook2016
at the checkout!

 
*offer ends midnight UK time on Sunday November 6th



Thanks again for taking time to read about all our changes. We have lots of exciting plans for the next year!


Have a great weekend.

Mark and Helen xx

Vinyl Revival @ Visible Image

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting our blog today!

We are continuing with the amazing inspiration created for our Create and Craft TV shows this coming weekend.



Over to Teresa who has an awesome project to share with you today…


Are you looking forward to watching Visible Image on Create and Craft this week??? I certainly am, and for the first time all my friends in the US are too!!

Just in case you haven’t heard, Visible Image are making their debut on Create and Craft USA on Friday 9th September 13:00 EST & 16:00 EST (6pm & 9pm UK time)……but don’t worry, fellow Brits – you can watch them here on Create and Craft UK on Saturday 10th September at 4pm too!!!

As you can imagine, there has been a lot of behind the scenes activity preparing for these shows and today I am sharing a card I made especially for them using The Ripple Effect and Music On World Off sets:



visible-image-stamps-music-on-world-off-ripple-background-stamp-teresa-morgan

I was inspired to create my ‘vinyl’ records as the ripple stamp reminded me of the grooves in records. I die cut some circles of black card and embossed the ripple stamp on them using WOW Powders Black Glint embossing powder. I then die cut the centres from coloured card, added some detail with a white gel pen and cut the centre holes out.



Visible Image Stamps - The Ripple Effect, Music On World Off

The background was created with DecoArt Media Fluid acrylics and my Gelli Plate. I stamped the words and small circles with black Archival ink.



Visible Image Stamps - The Ripple Effect, Music On World Off


These stamp sets are so versatile and I hope that my project and those of my fabulous team mates inspire you to make a purchase.

Please tune in to the shows on Create and Craft UK/USA – Mark and Pauline have some fabulous demos lined up and there will be multi-buy offers that you won’t want to miss!!

Just Be Happy @ Visible Image

Hi there! Thank you for visiting our blog today!

This week we are previewing some of the stunning samples made for our shows on Create and Craft TV this coming weekend.


Nicky Gilburt has created this totally gorgeous project. Over to Nicky…



Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Just Be Happy - Nicky Gilburt

 

Another marvellous monolith to share with you, from Visible Image, decorated this time with bright funky colours and more stamps from the fantastic Summer 2016 collection, to be shown (with never seen before extra features) on Create & Craft UK on Saturday 10th September at 4pm. (and on the US show on Friday night!)

 

I absolutely LOVED putting this piece of work together, especially as the Just be Happy slogan pretty much sums me up right now ( and it has nothing to do with the kids being back at school this week, either!) I prepared the monolith with white gesso, then white acrylic paint, and stamped the arty splodges ( from the new version of  Music on World off) directly onto the MDF with distress ink. I added the sun effect by masking the largest circle , then stamping, applying white embossing powder and heat embossing The Ripple Effect and added the smaller circles randomly too. The funky large heart is a new add-on to the set Own Kind of Beautiful.
 

 

Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful - Butterfly stamp - Nicky Gilburt

 

Reverse: Pinks and greens and Be your own Beautiful – but two of the butterflies have been stamped onto shrink plastic – now that was fun! I made 3 large ones on plain white card and matched them all up.

 

The wrap with the words on came about as I was test-stamping the colours on an off-cut from a previous card – and I thought ‘ooh that works for me!’ so I put my text on both sides of my wrap, sealed it at one end and carefully positioned it on my monolith.

 

Dare I say that this is my favourite piece of work from the new Summer release? I love everything that Visible Image has ever released but there is something really special about these stamps that just makes me…HAPPY!!! Thanks for reading!

 

Don’t forget to tune in! 
 
 


4pm UK time AND…..


 

6pm and 9pm UK time!
 
It’s going to be AWESOME!
Nicky



Thank you so much Nicky, this is such a stunning Monolith! We cannot wait to show it off on screen ♡

We hope Nicky has inspired you.. you’ll find more of her gorgeous work over on Nicky’s blog.

Today Veerle Moreels is here with a project which makes you just stop and stare! Over to Veerle…

When I saw the Summer Release 2016 from Visible Image… this idea started growing in my head and I had so much fun creating it. Starting out with a plain wooden box that has a little window I ended up with a finished project that has a lot of meaning for me. I’m not going to tell you how I see it, what I was thinking making it. Everybody should fill it in, in their own way. But I can tell you that every structure and every single stamp was placed with a meaning, they all carry a little part of me.

I’m not going to put down every single picture here…I made to many ^.^ But I have put them together in a little video so take a look while I show you round the outside and the inside of my altered box…



Stamps used in my project:

Visible Image Glimmer Of Light Moth COL stamp set


Visible Image Mr Bone Jangles skull COL stamp set


Visible Image Music On Headphones COL stamp set


Visible Image Own Kind Of Beautiful Butterfly COL stamp set



Veerle we cannot thank you enough for letting us have this for our shows… it is clear to see how much you put into making it and how very special it is ♡

We just have to add a few photos here to gaze at…

MDF Monoliths @ Visible Image

Hello! Thanks for visiting 🙂

We have a totally awesome project by Veerle Moreels to share with you today! You have probably already seen our brilliant MDF Monoliths which we launched in January.. they have been incredibly popular! Free-standing and reversible, they are so versatile as Veerle will show you…




Do you know the monoliths? They are beautiful MDF pieces Mark Alexander designed for Visible Image and give you so much possibilities to go and create awesome projects. Today I want to share my latest creation using a monolith. I had so much fun even more because I had beautiful new stamps from the Visible Image Summer release 2016 ^.^



Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Paper Holder - Moth & Skull stamp - Veerle Moreels 2


Getting curious…you can see it start-to-finish in the video I made…





I have shown the close ups pictures in the video but I do want to share the end result here too. I bet you I’ll never forget what I need to remember ^.^


Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Paper Holder - Moth & Skull stamp - Veerle Moreels    Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Paper Holder - Deaths Head HawkMoth stamp - Veerle Moreels



Now, I know not everybody loves skulls…but why not make this project using only butterflies, flowers or a beautiful colored in piece and use bright colors. This idea can be made in different styles, and these monoliths give you so much possibilities. If you are looking for some inspiration, head on over to the project gallery to see what my talented teamies already made using them.


Want to go and create? Visible Image send their products without any trouble and very cheap postage too!  You can find everything in their online webshop.


Materials used:


How Fragile We Are 



Thank you Veerle! Such a brilliant project and a great video 🙂

We hope you are feeling inspired! If you are new to trying mixed media, Monoliths are a perfect first step as they are not too big.. just a coat of gesso or acrylic paint and you can stamp away, or simply stick your card or favourite papers onto them!


Thanks again for visiting us today and be sure to pop back soon to see what the rest of the team have been creating!

Visible Image stamps - Mixed Media canvas - Moth stamp - Glimmer of Light quote - Teresa Morgan


I used washes of DecoArt Media acrylics to created my background: Cobalt Teal Hue, Cobalt Turquoise Hue, Dioxazine Purple, Burnt Umber, Pthalo Green Blue. I flicked some Carbon Black Media Mister onto the damp wash then allowed to dry. Once dry I flicked a bit more of the black Media Mister (to create more defined spots) and did the same with White Linen Dylusions spray ink.



Visible Image Stamps - Glimmer of Light


I wanted to add some texture, so used white DecoArt Media Crackle Paste and black DecoArt Modelling Paste with some stencils, and once again set aside to dry.

I used the script stamp and flourish from the Revolution set to add some background detail. I stamped them both with black Archival Ink, and then used the script stamp with Ranger Sticky embossing powder and turquoise foil. I stamped the moth and light bulb with Archival Ink and used Glossy Accents to highlight the glass bulb.

Finally I stamped the sentiment onto white card and cut it out, edging the pieces with black ink. I hope that you enjoyed today’s project – be sure to come back next week to see more of the new release stamps in use!!

Brightening Your Day @ Visible Image

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

Elina Strömberg‎ has been creating the most amazing cards with our NEW stamps…

Hi!

Have you been following the product release news in the Visible Image Facebook group over the past days? Don’t the new February release items just get your creative juices flowing! If you want to get a good overview of the entire product release just follow this link to see them all!

I was very lucky to have the chance to play with those goodies already a few days back. And here’s a set of three cards I made:

The versatile Shine Bright stamp set was perfect for playing with watercolours. I started with stamping the lightbulb image on heavy watercolour paper, and continued with covering the edges with masking fluid. Masking fluid protected my lightbulb when I started adding yellow and orange watercolours on the background.



2016-02-10 Visible Image stamps - Shine Bright - light bulb stamp - Elina Stromberg


Once the watercolour was dry I wanted to add more texture on the background, and used yellow ink and a mask to draw light beams around the lightbulb.

I finished the card by colouring the lightbulb with water soluable crayons and white gesso, and heat embossed the ‘Shine Bright’ text on the card front.



Orange and yellow were the main colours for the following two cards, too. The adorable 80’s look of the cassette in the ‘Just Hit Play’ stamp set made me choose a bit retro colour palette with several yellow and orange tones. (Or maybe it was the rainy and grey winter weather that asked again for bright sunny colours, lol!)

I started the CAS style card with stamping circles on the background. I stamped the image one more time on a piece of scrap paper, cut out the center of it, and used the piece of paper as a mask when colouring the circles. I did not colour all the circles as I wanted the background to have enough white in order to keep the look light and airy.


 


Stamping the quote on two lines only required some masking, as the stamp holds the texts on four lines. For alining the texts perfectly I could have used a stamp placement tool, but I did not mind that the lines were jumping a bit.

I used a piece of white vellum as quote background. Vellum is an easy way to calm down a busy background and to highlight elements like this quote text.



I often continue the card front pattern on the inside of the card. I think it gives the project a nice finished look. This time I simply cut a slip of white cardstock, stamped the same circles images on it, coloured them with yellow ink, glued the strip on a piece of vellum, and adhered it on the inside of the card. Done!



2016-02-10 Visible Image stamps - Just Hit Play - scribbled circles stamps - Elina Stromberg


When inking the yellow and orange background of my second ‘Just Hit Play’ card I used a strip of scrap paper as a mask. When finished I splashed some water on the inked surface, and after drying with the heat gun the light splash marks created a nice texture on the colourful background.



2016-02-10 Visible Image stamps - Just Hit Play - cassette tape stamp - Elina Stromberg


Then I stamped the cassette image on white cardstock, cut it out, and glued it on a piece of corrugated cardboard. 3D stickers would have worked just as fine, but cardboard is a much cheaper material when you need to lift a larger element from the background. Under the cassette there’s some black sewing thread that I glued down with tiny glue marks.



I’m sure I will use both of these new stamp sets not just for creating more cards, but also for decorating my scrapbooking layouts and art journal projects. The images are stunning, and I know they both will be a big hit!


 

 The above cards were made using these Visible Image products (click on the pictures for more info):


   



Wishing you a nice and bright day!

Monday Inspiration Part 2 @ Visible Image

Good Evening! We are back with our second dose of awesome inspiration here on the blog!

Over to Kim Bacon…

 

Hello!

How wonderful are these new stamps from Visible Image?

My make this week uses the totally brilliant light bulb.



Visible Image stamps - Shine Bright - Light Bulb stamp - Kim Bacon


I used Brushos (do I use anything else?) to make the background in shades of green and yellow along with the Grunge Polka Dot stamp.

Using black embossing powder I then stamped the light bulb onto white card which was then coloured in using yellow Brusho.



Visible Image stamps - Shine Bright - Light Bulb stamp - Kim Bacon 2

The sentiment was stamped onto yellow card also using black embossing powder.

I glazed the light bulb once I had cut it out, using a glazing liquid. I have some very old Diamond Glaze but you could do it using clear embossing powder I suppose.

See you soon for another Marvellous Monday and in the meantime enjoy your week, get crafty and show us what you have been up to!

Happy Days!  Kim

 

Fantastic card Kim.. love the background and your super shiny bulb!

We will be back with more gorgeous NEW stamps inspiration tomorrow:)

Have a lovely evening.

Sparkle In The Rain Monolith – Visible Image Stamps

Hi there! We are very excited to share this incredible piece of art work from Susanne Rose today…



Visible Image stamps - Sparkle In The Rain, MDF Monolith, Mixed Media Art - Susanne Rose



Hi my dear Visible Image friends!

I’m sharing my first Monolith today! It’s a mdf stand alone Monolith. Perfect for mixed media. I love it. And a bonus is, you can decorate both sides! So you can turn it from time to time! For my front I used black chalkboard paint and covered the whole surface. After this was completely dry I used Fran-tage embossing enamel together with the “Sparkle in the Rain” girl. To get a good coverage I embossed it two times. That means: Immediately after the first layer is melted you add another layer of powder. It will stick to your first impression, because it’s is still hot. You have to be quick, but keep in mind to put away you heat gun, to not blow away the powder. Some on the enamel will stick to the background as well. That’s because it is so hot. But I really like that. So the contrast is not too hard.

I used Gelatos to add color. They are working great on the chalkboard. I add some texture with the Tim Holtz Speckles stencil and structure paste.



I split the sentiment by masking one part with Washi tape. Don’t forget to remove the tape before you stamp. The word “SPARKLE” is embossed with some glitter teal powder.




The flowers are all handmade paperflowers. I used dies from Sizzix and Marianne Design. The blue one is cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I add some wire and gems for more interest.




My back is totally simple. It’s also covered with chalkboard paint. Of course that means you can write on it with chalk!

Thanks for stopping by!  Can’t wait to see all your first Monoliths!
xx Susanne. 



AMAZING work Susanne thank you! Loving all that texture, and the flowers are fabulous! ♡

We will be back tomorrow with the very first Monolith from Kim Johnny! And an awesome card from Kim Bacon… all created with our NEW stamps!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Visible Image Debut – Veerle Moreels

Hello! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration for you, and the very first post by NEW Design Team member Veerle Moreels…



My very first project to share with you is a tag and the moment I saw this new text stamp
I knew what I wanted to make…



That needed a butterfly don’t you think so too? I colored him in using my Gansai Tambi
watercolor paints and used the same color together with some black to make my background.




And to bring some of the metallic back at the bottom of the tag,
I attached my text using a fine metallic wire…





And the finished tag…

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.

Learn To Fly Again – Visible Image Stamps

Hello! We’re back (as promised!) with more fabulous inspiration!

Over to Pauline Butcher…

Hi there, 

I’m back again with a tag I’ve made, using an awesome set of Visible Image Stamps. This is one of the brand new designs, that are ready to pre-order now!
 
The set I’ve used on this tag is ‘Learn to Fly Again‘.
 
Visible Image stamps - Learn To Fly Again - Birds and feather stamps - Pauline Butcher

 

I used Distress inks for the background of the tag, the brighter the better, lol, and blended them together. I stamped the birds onto heat resistant acetate, using Versamark, then heat embossed using a gold sparkle embossing powder. I cut the acetate close to the outside birds and attached it to the tag with 3D gel.
 


On a separate piece of card, I stamped the feather in various colours to match the background, and a few in the same gold embossing powder, I then fussy cut them all, then made a nest with some corrugated kraft card and garden twine, and added some gold glitter too.

 

 
The sentiment was stamped onto Kraft card using Versamark, and heat embossed with white embossing powder, and torn around, I added some tacky glue, and some gold glitter to make it pop.
 


Pop over the the webshop and check out all the fantastic new Visible Image designs HERE.
 
Mark and I will be demoing some of them on Create and Craft TV, on Sunday 14th February (Yep, Valentines Day) at 10am. 

Catch the programme on SKY 674, FREEVIEW 36, VIRGIN 748 or FREESAT 813.


See you again soon,
Hugs, Pauline xxxx

Hit The Play Button @ Visible Image

Hello! We are back with more exciting NEW stamps inspiration!

Over to Teresa Morgan…



Hello and welcome back for another dose of stamping inspiration. Once again I am sharing another of the fantastic new release designs which is called ‘Just Hit Play’.



Visible Image stamps - Just Hit Play - Retro cassette tape stamp - Teresa Morgan

Teresa Morgan


I love the detail in this photo realistic cassette stamp and the funky button icons in the sentiment. I went with some bright (slightly retro) colours to keep this card loud and upbeat.

The background is created with Dylusions Spray Inks, and the cassettes were stamped onto white card then carefully cut out then glued in place. The excess was trimmed from around the edges.

The sentiment was stamped onto a strip of black card then embossed with opaque WOW powders.

Moments in Blue – Visible Image Stamps

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today 🙂

We have some fabulous inspiration for you this evening, so let’s get started!

Over to Dot Leathbridge, our Australian DT member…


New Stamps, New Products!


It is all happening at Visible Image at the moment…


with lots and lots of new stamps (yummy)
and something else altogether completely new ~ MONOLITHS.


Monoliths are MDF boards which come with a stand.
You can work on both sides.
~ and that is double the fun!!!


You can even use them as a kind of mood board ~ so either side reflects a different feeling…there are soooo many possibilites…


They are perfect for anything mixed media.
And they come in packs of 5.


Oh, and not so big that you can’t use your stamps on it,
in fact…they are specifically designed for our stamps!



So here is my first MONOLITH…



Visible Image stamps - MDF Monolith - Live IN The Moment - Dragonfly - Dot Leathbridge


After I did this I then did the other side ~
and forgot to take a pic.  Sorry about that.



Stamps Used:
Live In The Moment (new ~ & available for pre-order)


This side was sprayed with some mica’s from Finnabair,
and the other side was dribbled with some alcohol inks…in similar colours.
I wanted it to be similar, but different – if that makes sense.


The butterflies were stamped onto tissue paper and then applied.


 To finish, I decided to paint around the base and edges with some black gesso…
ooops, sorry, I didn’t take that pic either…



Visible Image will be on Create & Craft this Valentine’s Day
(10am) for those who would like to see Mark and Pauline play with the new products.
I still haven’t got around to blowing ink around through a Bic pen yet after the last show!
It is on my to-do list though.


It is absolutely awesome to be able to see what people look like and hear the sound of their voices…
it makes the world that bit smaller I think.

  • SO, new stamps (pre-ordering is under way)
  • new MDF boards
  • Create and Craft on TV (Feb 14th, 10am)
  • and the UK Trade Show (end of Feb)

~ are all things happening with Visible Image over the next few weeks! Busy times!!!

And it’s so exciting to be a part of it all.


Enjoy! 

Dot



This is absolutely stunning Dot.. the colours and texture are really beautiful ♡ Thank you!


We will be back soon with Shilpa’s Visible Image debut! And an awesome card from Teresa too 🙂

See you soon!
