Jazzing Up The New Year!

Hello! We have some awesome musical inspiration for you today from our Australian designer Dot Leathbridge…


Herald In The New Year


This jazz player from the “Jazz it Up” set seemed like the perfect way to kick off the new year.

I hope everyone had a fantastic night for the New Year’s celebrations, partied hard and stayed safe.

 

For me…it was down at the beach, slouching back in a camper chair and letting the fireworks fall down right over the top of me. Catching up with old friends, meeting new ones and having a couple of quiet drinks…it was another great night of seeing out the old and heralding in the new year.

This is the beginning of my 2nd year with Visible Image and I can’t wait to see what exciting things Mark and Helen have in store for us all.

 

Mark and Helen have also settled into their new HQ and are rearing to go.


The background for this one is quite simple, using alcohol inks. The brightness of the colours make the silhouette of the jazz player stand out.  This Jazz It Up set has been a favourite of mine since the very beginning…so versatile and full of fun!

 

I love the new additions to this set and what has been introduced across the whole range at Visible Image.  The new stars from the Feel The Beat set were a perfect finish for this card.

 

For me, I have been adding to my stock and now have quite a good range of Visible Image stamps for sale in Australia….so, exciting times ahead. My e-mail addy for any enquiries is: dleathbridge@hotmail.com

Inky Flower stamp – Visible Image

Good Morning 🙂 Yay it’s the weekend! 

Sorry for missing yesterday’s post (seems to be becoming a habit!) but it’s for a very good reason… Loads of orders from our awesome customers keeping us extremely busy!!! Thank you <3

So here’s Pauline’s ‘Fabulous Friday’ post which, if you follow Pauline’s blog, you will have seen yesterday!


Hey my crafty friends, how are you?
 
 Another week has flown by, and I’ve been busy creating, as usual.


I was having a bit of  sort out, and found my Alcohol inks, so have been playing with them, I love their bright juicy colours, and of course they are the perfect match with some awesome Visible Image Stamps.
 



05-02-2015 Visible Image stamps - Inky Flower - Grungy Stem - Brushos - Pauline Butcher

Using a Distress Ink blending tool with a piece of felt, I put 3 colours of Alcohol ink onto the felt, and a drop of Blending Fluid, then pounced over a piece of  8″x 8″ white gloss card.


For the first card I cut a 5″ x 5″ piece from the pattered card I had just made, and stamped  the flower and stem using Versamark, and heat embossed using Black powder, then using the Happy Birthday stamp, did the same. a little bit of mat and layering onto a 6″ card blank and some Stickles, and hey presto……..



The second card was the left over pieces of  the card I had coloured, and again using the same stamps and versamark, but this time using a black sparkle embossing powder, adding Stickles to finish. 2 Very simple cards made.

The Visible Image stamps used on these two cards were…

Flower INKognito ( one of my favourite ) and the Happy Birthday Set.
 
 
 



This was a tag I made for the lovely Mrs Awesome, (aka) Helen, as she was feeling very under the weather with ‘manflu’ last week caught from Mr Awesome himself, Mark, the owners of Visible Image Stamps.
 



  05-02-2015 Visible Image stamps - Tag - Inky Butterfly stamp - Pauline Butcher


I made this tag in the same way as before, but instead of pouncing the ink, I dragged and weaved my tool onto the card, giving a sort of wavy effect, I stamped the Inkognito butterfly, and heat embossed in black powder again, I then stamped the large butterfly with Versamark and heat embossed, onto a small piece of heat resistant acetate, and fussy cut it, fixing it above the butterfly on the tag, a sentiment and some mat and layers, and of course Stickles to finish. 
 


 The Visible Image stamps I used on this were…
