Hello! Thank you for visiting us here on the Visible Image blog today!

Our amazing team have been creating awesome things with our NEW stamps,
and Pauline Butcher is here today to share her first project with our super gorgeous
Cat Face stamp…

Hi there,
 
Have you seen the fantastic brand new Stamp designs from Visible Image,

I was so excited when some of them popped through my letter box, and I’ve had so much fun creating with them too!

They are all available to pre-order now!

 So……. today I am going to share a card made using the awesome Curious Cats set.
 
 

 

2017-02-03 Visible Image - stamps - Cat face stamp - perfectly flawed - Pauline Butcher

 

I used Brusho’s in Black and Gamboge, spritzing the card with water first,
then a gentle sprinkle of the Brusho’s. I then stamped the beautiful Cat’s face stamp
with Versamark, added the Wow Black Glint Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

 

 

 

I used household bleach to whiten the eyes and the nose, then coloured them with Blue and Gamboge for the eye’s,
and Gamboge for the nose. 
I then stamped the sentiment, again with Versamark, masking off some of the letters,
to get the Purr bit, and heat embossed using White Embossing Powder.
 

 

Thank you for popping in, hugs Pauline xxxxx

Hi there! Thank you so much for coming to visit us here on the blog today 🙂

We are so excited to start showing previews of the stamps in our Summer Release!


We’re kicking things off with an awesome NEW INKognito set called

Tomorrow Doesn’t Exist



Visible Image - Tomorrow Doesn't Exist - Promo June 2016


These words are so inspiring, and the brilliant inky silhouette image has such great movement!




The design was inspired by this photo..


Katie - Rest Bay - Living Life


It’s youngest daughter Katie after recovering from an operation earlier this year…
it was just so great to see her leaping in the air and full of life, after not being able to do any exercise for quite some time!



Our awesome INKognito range of ink splattered images were first released in 2014 and they’re still INKredibly loved! ♡


We hope you like this first set from our summer release! Make sure you come back tomorrow to see the next one…

We have lots of different stamp sets for you, including (of course!) Christmas! And, a few favourites are making a come back too!!!


Have a great evening.

Feeling Inspired? @ Visible Image

Hello and ‘Happy Friday’ to you! Hope you’ve had a good week 🙂 The weekend is almost here!!!

We are really looking forward to a couple of days off. We were up at 4am yesterday (for a very exciting reason!) but really feeling it today!


Lots of fabulous inspiration here on the Visible Image blog today, so we hope you enjoy and will feel really inspired to get out your stamps and inks…

Totally loved my new play with Brushos! I got an idea of trying with some other media then water, and it worked really well.

I masked off the edges on a plain white cardstock. Poured a pretty large amount of PPA (perfect paper adhesive) over it and swiped it around with my finger (yes, I used gloves, can’t stand the mess). Then I powdered two different of colors of Brushos over the surface. It started to blend a tiny bit, but not much so I started to swirl and drag the colors around with my finger again in the PPA. I dabbed around until I was satisfied. But something was missing…. ahhh GLITTER! So I took my finest glitter and sprinkled it over it all and then started to dry it with my heat gun. Slowly and moving it all the time to not over heat the adhesive. I could have set it aside for a few hours probably, but naaah… I wanted to finished it up.

It was dry after a while and I stamped the star from the Universal set serveral times on top. I used an archival inkpad. The sentiment Christmas Memories is stamped on Vellum and embossed in gold.

Note to self – put glue on the whole piece next time as it shows through a bit… lol.

Visible Image stamps - If You Have Hope - Kim Robertson


I made a 4×4 chunky canvas blank into a special little wall hanging using the one of the very special sentiment stamps as my focal point. It ended up looking a little vintage but I enjoyed the technique I used which was using a heavy bodied carvable paste coloured with ink and mica sprays to give it its rich tones, black lace and feathers always adds to the drama too.

I added a good amount of modelling paste to the front of this chunky canvas and simply using a palatte knife carved into it before drying with a heat gun, you can leave it over night if you refer and then you can sand the texture paste etc too if you would like a different effect. I wanted it to dry almost fabric looking so a little softer for this piece though.



This is the paste I used..



So after drying you can see it has puffed a little and is now matt



I used three different sprays two ink ones with no mica in a reddy tone and a chestnut brown and then a gold mica over spray gives it its shine. I dried each colour separately so the colours didn’t look muddy



I had some thin black lace in my stash so I added it in two layers facing each other on the sides. I used hot glue to attach it but you could easily use a fast drying wet glue also however tapes wont stand up to the heat gun too much and I reheated the top with sprays several times



Next I used this gorgeous sentiment that I loved immediately entitled If You Have Hope


I added my sentiment using Pinflair glue so it would self level on the top, and sit how I wanted to contrast with the backing.I also added a little angle resin piece I had and added some classic treasure gold to the corners and the resin angel to pick out the features.



Here it is diagonally so you can see the light from a different angle.


I added some black marabou feathers and some little black bead stamens poking out of the feather too and some little pearls in the corners with a few tiny roses in a matching tone to the bottom right of the sentiment for balance.So that’s it folks it turned out really well and I enjoyed putting this one together..



I hope you like it.


Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.


Love always
Kim

Today it’s a quick card from me, as time has been running away with me this week!

Visible Image stamps - Robot - Teresa Morgan

I have used the fun and funky Robot Data Set to make a cool birthday card

The background is blended Distress Inks with the binary stamp randomly stamped on it. I used Promarkers to colour the robot and monitor, mounting them on the card with 3d foam. The sentiment is embossed with WOW powders ultra fine white embossing powder.

It’s Fabulous Friday and time for me to share a creation I’ve made using some fantastic Visible Image Stamps

2015-11-20 Visible Image stamps - Wake Up And Be Awesome - Pauline Butcher


The stamps I’ve used on this card are…

 


I started off by sprinkling some Brusho’s on a piece of card, spritzing with water, then layering up more Brusho’s and water for a nice intense look, then dried it totally. 

I stamped the sentiment using Versamark onto this piece of card, then heat embossed it using white powder,and cut the card to the size I wanted. I decided at this stage that I wanted it to be very glossy, so using the Versamark pad I completely covered the card, and heat embossed using clear powder, and did this twice more. 

On a small piece of card, I stamped the butterfly using black ink, coloured it using a paintbrush and Brusho’s, then added Stickles on top for the bling factor.

Finally for the background, I stamped the tree’s using Distress inks, then added some more Stickles as blossom.

Masculine Inspiration with Visible Image stamps

Hello again! We are back with our second inspirational post today!

Over to the awesome Amber Kroening…

Hey guys!  I wanted to pop in and share a set of cards that I made my Dad for Christmas. Masculine cards can be a challenge, but Visible Image has a ton of great “manly” stamps. =D  


 Visible Image stamps - Masculine Cards - Yoou'll always be a classic - vintage car - Amber Kroening


The car  was stamped in brown pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I outlined the car with a gray marker to add a little dimension. I did the same with the sentiment, except with black ink.  

Once all my stamping was done, I used Distress Ink to ink up the edges, and then adhered my card fronts to black card bases.


So, a few tips for masculine cards… Use mostly neutral colors.  Most guys over 30 aren’t big fans of hot pink and lime green. lol  Keep your cards simple.  Guys don’t need/want a bunch of ribbons and glitter on their cards. =P  Add some masculine stamps to your collection.  I bet you’ll use them more than you thought you would!
