Shine Bright

Hi 🙂 Thanks for visiting our blog today.

Teresa Morgan is here with a fabulous new card…


I can’t believe that it’s Thursday again already and here I am sharing another Visible Image stamps project with you all.

This time I used the ‘Shining Bright ‘set of stamps and kept with our July challenge theme of ‘A Splash of Colour’.




I do enjoy creating CAS (clean and simple) cards – it makes a change from my usual inky mixed media style. The lights and words are stamped with black Archival ink, and I used a water brush and Mustard Seed Distress Ink to colour the lights in. A touch of Black Soot Distress Ink around the matted sentiment just pops it of the page. The ‘wires’ are just drawn in with a black pen and ruler.



Stamps Used:


Shining Bright





Great card… sometimes ‘simple’ is all you need! Thanks Teresa ♡

Shine Bright

Hi there!

We are all loaded up and ready to leave for the Crafting at Ally Pally show this weekend… very excited! We will share lots of photos on our return!

Pauline is here on the blog sharing an awesome card today…

Hi there,
 
It’s Fabulous Friday, the gateway to the weekend, and it looks as if the weather is going to be lovely.

Anyway, it’s my day to share a project I’ve made using some awesome Visible Image Stamps.



 


I used two stamp sets on this 6″x 6″ card…

Shining Bright and the moths are from Glimmer of Light.


I used a Kaleidacolor Ink Pad to do the background wording, stamping the sentiment where ever it would fit,
I then blended some Distress inks around the edge’s. The lightbulb was stamped with versamark onto heat
resistant acetate, and heat embossed with black embossing powder.

I then fussy cut it, and coloured the back of it with alcohol pens.

 




I used the small moths out of the ‘Glimmer of Light’ set, stamped them with Versafine,
and coloured them with Distress Inks. I of course added Stickles, there has to be a little bit of ‘bling’ in our lives !!!!
 
If you are anywhere near Alexandra Palace, London this weekend, Visible Image has got a stand
at ‘Crafting at Ally Pally’, pop along and say hello to Helen and Mark, on Saturday 8th April or Sunday 9th April…
I wish I was going !!!!


Thanks again for popping in, hugs, Pauline xxxxx

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.

Shine Bright @ Visible Image

Good Evening! We are back with some awesome inspiration this evening!

First up is Katy Leitch with this amazing Monolith..


2016-02-10 Visible Image - freestanding MDF - Light Bulb stamp - Katy Leitch


Hello there! My make for the Visible Image DT today uses two of their BRAND NEW releases which are now available to pre-order. As soon as I saw the Shine Bright stamp I knew I wanted it. Something that little bit different…



2016-02-10 Visible Image - Light Bulb stamp - Katy Leitch


Also new are the MDF monoliths which are perfect for making pieces for display and also for practical makes (more on that from some of my teamies to come). I’ve created something purely decorative today.



2016-02-10 Visible Image - Light Bulb stamp - Katy Leitch 2


Here’s how I made it:

1) To create the background I layered scrunched tissue paper over cardstock (you could also work straight onto the MDF if you prefer). I added a die cut clock and some string before painting the whole thing with black gesso,

2) When the gesso had dried, I dry-brushed all over with paint in purple and blue shades (I used DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics). After that, I dry-brushed a very small amount of white gesso onto some of the raised areas.

3) I painted some die cut cogs with silver metallic paint (also DecoArt Media) and added them to the background along with some washers and nuts from the DIY store.

4) I stamped the light bulb onto white card and coloured it with Distress Inks (Mustard Seed and Wild Honey). I added silver Sakura Gelly Roll metallic pen to the lower parts.

5) I then stamped the lightbulb again onto Dura-Lar film using StazOn (you could use acetate instead). The Dura-Lar can be heated and gently shaped and here it’s curved gently to resemble a ‘real’ lightbulb. Apply more silver pen to the back of the film light bulb and glue it over the card one, just adding the glue towards the base where the black stamping will hide it.

6) Stamp a portion of the ‘inspire’ dictionary stamp onto a scrap of card, swipe lightly with Distress Ink in Mustard Seed before securing behind a bookplate.

Hope you LOVE this stamp as much as me!

Monday Inspiration Part 2 @ Visible Image

Good Evening! We are back with our second dose of awesome inspiration here on the blog!

Over to Kim Bacon…

 

Hello!

How wonderful are these new stamps from Visible Image?

My make this week uses the totally brilliant light bulb.



Visible Image stamps - Shine Bright - Light Bulb stamp - Kim Bacon


I used Brushos (do I use anything else?) to make the background in shades of green and yellow along with the Grunge Polka Dot stamp.

Using black embossing powder I then stamped the light bulb onto white card which was then coloured in using yellow Brusho.

The sentiment was stamped onto yellow card also using black embossing powder.

I glazed the light bulb once I had cut it out, using a glazing liquid. I have some very old Diamond Glaze but you could do it using clear embossing powder I suppose.

Happy Days!  Kim

 

Fantastic card Kim.. love the background and your super shiny bulb!

Steampunk Monolith – Shine Bright – Visible Image

Hi there!

It’s been a little crazy here over the last week, with the launch of our NEW designs for pre-order! And making all the stamps for our upcoming show on Create and Craft TV… so sadly the blog has been neglected!!!

However… our Design Team have been really busy creating awesome things with our NEW stamps so we have loads of amazing inspiration to bring you over the next few days!


Here’s Teresa with BRAND NEW stamps and our BRAND NEW product…



I am thrilled to be sharing a project using one of the new stamp sets that will be released on Create and Craft on Sunday 14th February. This set is called ‘Shine Bright’ and is such a cool design!!

I have used the stamps to decorate an MDF ‘Monolith’….what’s that? you say…..



Teresa Morgan

I base coated the MDF with gesso then added a couple of coats of DecoArt Copper paint. The MDF cogs and pipework (Calico Craft Parts) have been given an antique brass effect using Gold and Quinacridone Gold DecoArt paint. I added the verdigris effect with Patina Antiquing Cream.



Visible Image Stamps - Shine Bright, Monolith


I wanted the light bulb to stand up by itself and my acetate was too thin, so I stamped it onto Shrink Plastic (do NOT shrink it!!) and cut out. I coated the front with Glossy Accents and attached vellum to the back for the opalescent effect. Some silver foiling on the screw thread added to the realism. The sentiment was embossed in gold onto copper pearlescent card.



Visible Image Stamps - Shine Bright, Monolith



Thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget to watch the show on Create and Craft TV…. 6 new stamp sets will be launched ahead of the UK Trade Show where all 30 new designs will be available to retailers.


It’s going to be an exciting year for Visible Image, some amazing new stamps…feature images, backgrounds, words, and much more….

Teresa
