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:

Visometry


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

Happy Crafting

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

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 ♡

We hope you enjoyed Veerle’s video tutorial.. why not subscribe to her channel.
And you will find more gorgeous projects over on Veerle’s blog.

Shining Bright Promo


Just look at the clever designing by Mark… LOVE the rays of light over the word SHINE and the lightbulbs are awesome!


The quote is so inspiring and the words mean so much to us.. especially at the moment!

‘Don’t let someone dim your light simply because it’s shining in their eyes’

(keep moving ahead and let your light shine even brighter!)



These stamps also work brilliantly with another very popular set we released last summer…
