Live Life And Capture Every Moment!

Hello! We are back with more fabulous inspiration, as promised!

Here’s Corrie with not one but three gorgeous projects…


Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog post for Visible Image. I have made these projects for the Create & Craft TV shows that were aired last Friday. You can watch them on catch up for a few days if you missed them, just find the shows from June 9th!

I made three samples for the show:




I made this card with a mop up gelli print. Funny how these sometimes turn out even better than the actual prints!

Featuring:

Live in the Moment






A monolith made with acrylic paints and a gelli plate. I also used a lot of embossing powder on this. It is black and a little sparkly. Of course I had to add some splatters !

Featuring:


a Monolith (Of course 🙂 )






Live life Now




Imperfection is Beauty






An art journal page. I made a gelli print for this and added lots of different stamps using inks and white embossing powder.
Featuring:


Capture the Moment




Scripted Streets




Universal

Wings of Sympathy – Visible Image stamps

Hello and thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today!

We have some stunning inspiration for you today and more NEW stamps previews too 🙂

First up is Pauline Butcher with a really beautiful card…

Hi there,
 
It’s time for me to share another creation I’ve made, using Visible Image Stamps.
 
Unfortunately, I had to make a sympathy card for a friend, never a nice thing to do, but these lovely stamps came to my rescue, and I kept it nice, simple and quick, almost ‘clean and simple’.

Visible Image stamps - Inky Butterfly - With Sympathy - Pauline Butcher
 
The stamps I used are…

 
I stamped the Inkognito Butterfly using Black Versafine onto white card, then blended Picked Raspberry Distress ink lightly around the edges. I mixed some of the same coloured ink with water, and flicked it over the card.

 I stamped the Large Butterfly onto another piece of card, using Versamark, and heat embossed using Black detail powder, fussy cut it, then coloured it using Distress Inks and a water brush.
 
 
I stamped the sentiment using Black Versafine ink.



I put a paper middle inside the card too, using the beautiful verse that comes in the the sentiment set.

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.


05-02-2015 Visible Image stamps - Happy Birthday - Inky Flower - Pauline Butcher


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…

Colourful Inky Inspiration with Visible Image stamps

Hi! We’re back with our Fabulous Friday post from Pauline…

Hi again,
 
Today I’m sharing a couple of 6″ x 6″ cards I’ve made using some fantastic Visible Image stamps.
 
My first card uses…..

Visible Image stamps - Butterfly INKognito - Inky Butterfly - Pauline Butcher


I created the background using Distress Inks in 3 colours, and then used a stencil over the top and spritzed with water, to give the sun ray effect. I stamped the butterfly and sentiment with versamark and heat embossed with black powder. I then added 3 colours of Stickles to the butterfly to give the sparkle.
 



The stamps used on the second card are…..
Woman INKognitoRipped Fishnet and ‘Love Yourself’ from the No Regrets Set.
 
 Visible Image stamps - Woman INKognito - Ripped Fishnet - Love Yourself - Pauline Butcher

The background for this card was created with Brusho’s and water, left to dry
, then stamped the Woman in Versamark and heat embossed using Black Embossing powder, I masked her off and stamped the Fishnet with Versamark, and heat embossed that using Pink Embossing powder. I then went over the Woman with a Black Viva Perlen Pen, to make it very dimensional, I also added some Stardust Stickles, and some Pink Stickles for sparkle of course. I coloured a small piece of card with Distress inks, spritzed with water, then stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with Black embossing powder.
 


I am now going to spread a little ‘Visible Image’ love..
I never tire of using these fabulous stamps, apart from the superb quality, these thick polymer stamps are made in house, hand poured and hand cut by Mark, the designer himself, so they are very very unique in every way. Helen does all the packaging, administration, and networking, together they make an Awesome Team. So if you’ve not tried the stamps yet, have a go and see what you think.


A new Visible Image ‘Show and Tell’ challenge has started, so get stamping, and produce some work to enter it, details HERE.
 
Check out the Visible Image Facebook group too for news of goings on, HERE.
 
Big hugs, Pauline xxxxx 



Two absolutely stunning cards from Pauline! Isn’t that background incredible and so perfect for our inky butterfly! And the second card is just so funky! LOVE that pink <3 Woman INKognito looks superb!

You can get your hands on these gorgeous stamps HERE. Why not treat yourself?!

If you are coming to Ally Pally next weekend you will be able to see these gorgeous cards displayed on our stand, along with so many more from our amazing team… they always make our stand look totally awesome!

Have a fabulous Friday, and a brilliant weekend. Hope you have something good planned! We are off to see Olly Murs on Saturday night and then we have a family get together on Sunday.. So we will get a few hours off!!! 😉

Bye for now. Come back tomorrow to see new inspiration from Amber.
