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….ūüėĽ




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

Stay Curious!

Hi again! Yes we are back with MORE gorgeous inspiration… think this is our 10th blog post this weekend!!!

We’ll pass you over to Nicky Gilburt…


I am SO in love with this cat. I don’t think there is an EASIER stamp than this one,¬†Curious Cats, to start from, but the effects you can achieve are incredible. Those eyes are just amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a stamped image that’s so realistic. Anyhow, enough of my enthusing…




Created on a background of….yes… Distress Crayons! I blended some neutral tones and then picked up some distress ink colour in greens and orangey browns, making them watery and then making long drips across my card with a paintbrush. A bit of drying time and then I repeated the process at the other side. So rather than top to bottom, you get a bit of a cross stripe. And my tatty tabby was born!

Once I’d stamped and coloured the cat’s features (because my base card was coloured I stamped an extra pair of eyes onto thin white card and cut them out to stick over the original ones, you can’t tell!) I added the whiskers (all stamped with Versafine Onyx Black), and a little bit of depth with my Spiced Marmalade ink pad and a blender, and some paws and the repeated word ‘Curious’ across the top and bottom. It only remained to stamp the sentiment in black, and mount the image, and the card was complete.

I am totally in love with the Curious Cats set, such a gorgeous face….. anyway,
I decided to make a scene background, using Distress Inks, I blended the ink,
added a couple of trees from the ‘Create It’ set, and used the ends of the whiskers for the grass.


I stamped the two small cats in the foreground, using Black Versafine, then stamped the pussy’s face
and the sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed using Black Glint Embossing powder by Wow.

I bleached out the eyes and nose, and coloured them with Distress inks.

Lastly I added a bit of contour to the face, using a pencil.

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
