The Greatest Journey Lies Ahead

Hello there! Thanks for popping in today.

We have more awesome inspiration to share with you for this weekend’s show on Create and Craft TV!

First up today is Elina Strömberg…

Hi and happy Thursday!

Today I’m sharing with you two colourful tags that I made over the wonderful long weekend:

This time I did not use ready made manila tags but die-cut the size 8 tags myself. Actually I cut both tags twice; once from solid purple paper and once from a colourful paper I had inked with Distress Oxide inks. Oh how I love playing with those!

Whenever I’m working on a colourful background I like to use some contrasting black and white elements that really make the vivid colours pop. Using the fun ‘Visometry’ stamp set by Visible Image I stamped the same geometrical shape several times on a white paper, coloured the triangles with black and grey markers and cut out. It’s always fun to find new ways for using your favourite stamps!

In addition to the Distress Oxide layers I created more background patterns with Visible Image ‘Scripted Streets‘ stamp. The tiny black splashes are black ink.

The word stamps are from Visible Image ‘Destination Unknown‘ stamp set. Again I mixed and matched the quotes in a new way; love that creative puzzle play!

I did not use any dimensional elements on the tags, so both of them are thin which makes them perfect bookmarks, too. I think that the quote text is matching that use; when you have a good book in your hand you know that a great adventure always lies ahead!

Wishing you a nice week. Many thanks for stopping by!

Hi there! We hope you have had a great Easter weekend! We are back with lots of gorgeous inspiration here on the blog today.

We are kicking off with the latest project by Corrie Herriman…

Hello everyone,

and welcome to this blog post for Visible Image. This time I have made a trio of ATC’s.

The backgrounds were made with Tim Holtz’ Distress Oxide Inks. I used ‘Fossilized Amber’, ‘Peeled Paint’,
‘Spiced Marmalade’, ‘Broken China’ and ‘Cracked Pistachio’.  Next I stamped the backgrounds with Broken
China Oxide Ink and Jet Black Archival ink.

I added some doodle lines around the edges and then stamped the main images and words.
The were cut out, apart from the map which I tore out, and adhered to the cards. The word discover
was stamped directly onto the card. I added some twine around the middle card and adhered all
three to a piece of water colour card stock. Makes a nice panel I think…

That was it. Here are some close ups:

Stamps Used:
