What Matters

Hi there! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration here on the blog today as we share the latest Design Team projects with you.

Nicky Gilburt has gone all cosmic on us..


Today I am sharing some beautiful words from Visible Image. An older stamp, this one was released first in 2015 but that matters not, the words are beautifully expressed and I’ve mixed them with something very new to create this card…

 

 

The stamps I’ve used on this card are:What Really Matters



and a couple of the elements from Believe in Unicorns





Firstly I built up a background on Daler Rowney Mixed Media card with Brushos, using blues, purple,
a hint of emerald  green and yellow, spritzing with water. Once dry I thinned out a little white acrylic paint
and flicked splatters all over my cardstock to achieve that ‘galaxy’ effect.

I allowed time for drying again and that’s when I started playing with my little stamps from the Believe in Unicorns set. The moon was a perfect choice, and the little starbursts just finished everything off.
I love stamping and embossing in white. I tried out a new powder for this project, Nuvo Glacier White, and it gave me a perfect finish. 


 

All that remained was to mount the sentiment onto the base card. For the first time in ages I stayed away from square, so I dug out my Sue Wilson Noble Collection – Essential sized Rectangles, and cut an A6 shape for the base and a smaller one for the words, which I mounted on a foam sheet for a smooth finished effect



If you love Visible Image as much as I do, stop by their Facebook group and join in this month’s challenge

Anything Is Possible

Hello! We are back with more incredible inspiration for you!

Veerle has created a stunning tag and has also made a video tutorial for this project too…


A few weeks ago I showed you this card using the Visible Image ‘Believe in Unicorns’ stamp set.



And I have had some more fun using it in not one but two projects ^.^


My daughter, who loves the moon, asked me to make her a bookmark creating a universe and this moon.
Now I never had made a universe background so I had a tryout… and I filmed it for you ^.^





And the bookmark…



So two more projects using the same set yet looking completely different!

 

Stamps Used:

Believe in Unicorns
