Free as a Dragonfly

Hi there! We are back with more stunning inspiration this evening here on the blog.

Teresa Morgan is here with a brand new project…



Hello and welcome to another Thursday inspiration post from me for Visible Image.

I have used stamps from three sets to decorate my gatefold card today.



My background is Distress Inks, smooshed on a craft mat. I then splattered some water drops and blotted to create a faux bleach effect. Next, I stamped and embossed the sentiment, framing with the coffee ring stamp (embossed in white.) Finally I stamped and embossed the dragonflies, circling around.



The outer panels began the same way, but I then stamped and embossed the ink splats ramdomly over them.

Getting Sentimental

Hello there! Thank  you so much for visiting our blog today.

Elina Strömberg is here with some gorgeous inspiration for this month’s Facebook group challenge which is all about words…

Hi,


Today I’m sharing with you two cards I made using two lovely quote stamps by Visible Image:





I wanted the quote to be the main focus of the card, so I kept the other embellishments to minimum.

For the background I used soft pink liquid watercolor that I applied in several layers, drying each layer with my heat gun before applying the next layer of water and/or colour.


Once the background was ready I stamped the quote. The ‘Smile Sparkle Shine’ text I created some highlights with an embossing pen, added gold embossing powder, and heat set the powder with my heat gun.



Usually I decorate the watercoloured background with some pattern stamping, but this time I wanted to add more golden shimmer. I sprinkled a bit of the same embossing powder around the stamped quote, and heat set the powder by heating it from underneath. Blowing it from top would have blown the powder away as it was loose on the paper.



The only decoration element was a simple die-cut frame I covered with embroidery yarn. Wrapping the yarn around the paper frame took a while, but I just love the end result! Once the entire frame was covered I glued the frame on the card front.



These cards were really simple and fun to make. Hope they inspire you, too!


For more information on the lovely Visible Image stamps I used, please click on the pictures below:



 Wishing you a nice week. Thanks for stopping by!

Broken Wings

Hello! Thank you for coming to check out the latest inspiration here on our blog.

Veerle has created some beautiful inspiration for this month’s themed challenge over in our Facebook group…

 

This month’s theme is:


 

So I had to pick out one of the sentiments/words… that’s a tough choice as I love the words so much.
But I went for the one that definitely has a very special meaning for me…


Learn To Fly Again





I love every stamp in the set but it’s the words that are just… well this one still stands on my dresser as a little reminder…





Curious what I made this time? I’ve made a new video so you can see how it was made.






Incredibly beautiful project Veerle thank you  ♡

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
‘Express Yourself’ where you can enter a card or project using any of the many quotes that they have made so beautifully into stamps!

Nicky



Really loving the cosmic/galaxy background with this quote.. a match made in heaven! Thanks Nicky ♡

Stay Strong

Hello there! Thank you for visiting our blog today!

Nicky Gilburt is here with a gorgeous card created for our Create and Craft TV show on Saturday, and wow what a show that was! More on that soon!

Over to Nicky…






My card share this week is a simple affair, as the words need little to distract from them. If you saw Visible Image’s show on Create and Craft on Saturday 22nd April you will have seen an amazing array of quotes and inspirational words, and these are just some of those.

 

The background from this card is simple two colours of distress ink applied with a blending tool onto card. I liked the deliberate contrast of the colours, but I was very pleased with the depth achieved by keeping a bit of light space around the blue.

 

For the background stamping I used the fascinating Visometry set, which I must say intrigues me, and I will use this again, I love it!

 

 
I stamped my key text in brown for a change, just to soften the effect rather than using harsh black, for once, and I stamped various shapes from the Visometry set in blue and brown, to complement the background colours.



Stamps Used:

Stay Strong

There are so many inspirational, motivational and comforting quotes to play with at Visible Image, you’ll find them all HERE!

Happy Crafting

Loving the colours on this card, really striking! Thank you Nicky ♡

Get Up and Dress Up!

Hello and thank you so much for coming to visit our blog today!

Nicky Gilburt is here with 3 gorgeous cards using 1 fabulous sentiment stamp…

It’s all about the words this weekend – and how to frame them.

Another inspiring and fun quote from Visible Image, it pretty much speaks for itself!

But here are three different ways I’ve set them out.

 

1. Distress inks and stencils
 

 


I have mixed purples and blues in different ways, smooshed them around with water,left them to dry and then added stencils to create a bit of interest, Once completely dry ( use a heat gun to be sure!) I rubbed an anti-static bag over the area then stamped with Versamark, and applied white embossing powder and melted it with a heat gun. The stars come from the very popular Born to Perform set.

 

2. Distress crayons

 


I slightly dampened my base card before applying distress crayon and rubbing with my finger. A bit of text, heat embossed with black powder, and a few flowers from the Create It!set, not forgetting a couple of sequins to finish!

 

3. Aqua Flow markers

 


I totally love these pens. They are the Tonic Studios Nuvo brand, and here I have laid down thick swathes of colour, allowed to dry and stamped the text over it. Again, heat embossing in white makes the words really stand out!


A simple border round the edge with a fine-liner pen makes for a funky finish

There are so many inspirational, motivational and comforting quotes to play at Visible Image!



 

 

Happy Crafting

Nicky x

Don’t Be Afraid Of Change

Hello! Good Morning, Afternoon or Evening!

Gosh there were just not enough hours in the day to blog yesterday. This is what we were doing all day and late into the evening…




It’s the very busy Crafting at Ally Pally show this weekend so there has been so much to do!
We have a new stand this year too, so most of today will be spent creating lots of gorgeous
new display boards for all the stunning samples our wonderful team have created ♡


Today we will hopefully be sharing 3 more projects with you here on the blog.

First up is Pauline Butcher…

Helloooo,
 

Gosh another week has gone, is it me, or does each year seem to go faster than the last, lol !!!!

 

It’s time for me to share one of my Visible Image creations with you.

This card is made with a Brusho background, sprinkled and spritzed with water,
just make sure it is totally dry before stamping using Versamark, then heat emboss using White Embossing Powder, and of course the stamps are from the fantastic Stay Wild set.

So quick and easy!

 

 


Many thanks for your visit.

Hugs, Pauline xxxxx



What a stunner! Loving that background for the white horses ♡  Thanks Pauline!

“Sometimes what you’re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free”

…what a brilliant quote and how true it is! We were so afraid last year when we made the massive change
to our business, stopping manufacturing the stamps ourselves, but it turned out to be the best decision ever!
It has really allowed us to evolve and grow.


We love how much you love our quotes and sentiments.. been receiving so many awesome comments, messages
and emails lately which mean so much ♡

Don’t Let Them Dim Your Light

Good Morning! (Or maybe it’s afternoon or evening where you are!). We have another day packed full of inspirational blog posts as we continue to share all the latest creations from our amazing Design Team, and wow have they been creating some awesome stuff!

Next up is Veerle Moreels with a stunning tag and another brilliant video tutorial…



Look at the beautiful quote,  and the beautiful word SHINE which were added to this set when it had a makeover earlier this year.


Now… curious what I made?




QUICK TIP: for those who don’t have a misti or stamping tool: hold your two pieces of paper together by using some temporarily tape at the back while stamping. When you are ready separate them before using the embossing powder ^.^




Stamps used:

Shining Bright


Glimmer of Light



Wow what a gorgeous tag! Again such an incredible interpretation of the brilliant quote! Thank you Veerle ♡
