Dragonflies – Visible Image

Hello there! We have more fabulous inspiration to share with you here on the blog today.

Over to Dot Leathbridge…


I’ve been having fun with the new dragonflies from Visible Image!


As there are now new smaller ones, the set is so versatile.



visible-image-live-in-the-moment-dragonfly-stamp-dot-leathbridge


This card uses the acrylic block technique as a background with some dragonflies stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.


The ink used is Color Burst. I love the intense colour that this product has!


The words are also stamped with the same ink.


After seeing/reading somewhere that you can spray your stamp lightly with water and mix colour onto the stamp with your finger, I decided to give it a go with the words. No different to what you do on the acrylic block…just using a stamp instead.
The multi-tones that came out on the words was amazing!!! And as long as you don’t have it too wet, then the words are quite crisp.

The stamp set used was:

This is my final DT make for this year for Visible Image.
I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.
Take care!
Dot

Imperfection is Beauty – Visible Image

Hi there, thanks for visiting us 🙂

Nicky Gilburt is here to inspire you on the blog today with a gorgeous card…


Hello,

Here’s my latest card.

The main stamps used are from Imperfection is Beauty, and the background features two stamps from The Ripple Effect


visible-image-imperfection-is-beauty-inky-script-flower-stamp-nicky-gilburt


How apt that this is the set that I chose to play with, I had previously made a set of backgrounds with Distress inks, spritzers and paints, and this was one of my least favourites, as I felt it was less than perfect, the ink hadn’t spread evenly across the sheet, making a mottled effect botttom left. However….




when I stamped the two scripty flowers onto separate pieces of coloured card, and cut them out, it all seemed to work. And I thought that the effect actually seemed….right!




I used the bubble circle outlines and stamped and embossed with white, making it super easy to roughly fill them in with watercoloured distress ink. I used the same colour to stamp the other full circles, to tie them together, and stamped random patterns round the edge of my design to add interest and highlights.

Happy Crafting!

Baby It’s Cold Outside – Visible Image

Hello! Are you feeling festive yet? Teresa Morgan is here on the blog today with a fantastic Christmas tag…



It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas……and I have a festive tag to share with you all today, using some fabulous Visible Image stamps:

 

I die cut two blank tags using my Tim Holtz Sizzix die, and then used a Sizzix Mixed Media die to cut the holes in one of the blanks. Several shades of blue and black Distress Ink are blended over the tag. I added more pattern to the tag by splatting some water on the inks and blotting off.



visible-image-snowman-jack-character-stamp-teresa-morgan


Jack is stamped with Archival Ink and coloured with Distress Inks using a water brush – this gives a softer, looser effect than colouring with markers. I randomly stamped some snowflakes over the tag before adding the sentiment at the top. Jack is attached with 3d foam pads, and the second blank tag is glued behind the decorated one to complete the piece.

Halloween Potions – Visible Image

Good Evening! We promised you an amazing new project from Veerle Moreels tonight so here it is…



Who’s celebrating Halloween? Here we don’t really celebrate it but a little home decoration is always welcome so it got me thinking on a little project…


So I started in photoshop…



halloween-bottles-element


It all got measured around some of my most favorite Visible Image stamps and once it was all on the right spot I printed out my text and stamped them right in between…

And of course I just had to add some of the little moths too ^.^ They fit just perfect on those bottles!



halloween-bottles-element-4-wm


Just added some extra bottles to add some color to my project, and of course some more moths ^.^



halloween-bottles-element-0-wm

Some Glimmer of light…

Some Mr. Bone Jangles powder…

And some Crushed Skull… What could we brew with that?

Vinyl Revival @ Visible Image

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting our blog today!

We are continuing with the amazing inspiration created for our Create and Craft TV shows this coming weekend.



Over to Teresa who has an awesome project to share with you today…


Are you looking forward to watching Visible Image on Create and Craft this week??? I certainly am, and for the first time all my friends in the US are too!!

Just in case you haven’t heard, Visible Image are making their debut on Create and Craft USA on Friday 9th September 13:00 EST & 16:00 EST (6pm & 9pm UK time)……but don’t worry, fellow Brits – you can watch them here on Create and Craft UK on Saturday 10th September at 4pm too!!!

As you can imagine, there has been a lot of behind the scenes activity preparing for these shows and today I am sharing a card I made especially for them using The Ripple Effect and Music On World Off sets:



visible-image-stamps-music-on-world-off-ripple-background-stamp-teresa-morgan

I was inspired to create my ‘vinyl’ records as the ripple stamp reminded me of the grooves in records. I die cut some circles of black card and embossed the ripple stamp on them using WOW Powders Black Glint embossing powder. I then die cut the centres from coloured card, added some detail with a white gel pen and cut the centre holes out.



Visible Image Stamps - The Ripple Effect, Music On World Off

The background was created with DecoArt Media Fluid acrylics and my Gelli Plate. I stamped the words and small circles with black Archival ink.

These stamp sets are so versatile and I hope that my project and those of my fabulous team mates inspire you to make a purchase.

Today Veerle Moreels is here with a project which makes you just stop and stare! Over to Veerle…

When I saw the Summer Release 2016 from Visible Image… this idea started growing in my head and I had so much fun creating it. Starting out with a plain wooden box that has a little window I ended up with a finished project that has a lot of meaning for me. I’m not going to tell you how I see it, what I was thinking making it. Everybody should fill it in, in their own way. But I can tell you that every structure and every single stamp was placed with a meaning, they all carry a little part of me.

I’m not going to put down every single picture here…I made to many ^.^ But I have put them together in a little video so take a look while I show you round the outside and the inside of my altered box…



Stamps used in my project:

Visible Image Glimmer Of Light Moth COL stamp set


Visible Image Mr Bone Jangles skull COL stamp set


Visible Image Music On Headphones COL stamp set


Visible Image Own Kind Of Beautiful Butterfly COL stamp set



Veerle we cannot thank you enough for letting us have this for our shows… it is clear to see how much you put into making it and how very special it is ♡

We just have to add a few photos here to gaze at…

The white splatters are made with Vallejo liquid watercolor.

Glimmer of Light – Visible Image Stamps

Hello! Thanks for visiting!

Pauline is here to inspire you today with an amazing project featuring stamps from our Summer Release and our brilliant MDF Monoliths…

Hi there,
 
I thought it was about time I decorated another Visible Image Monolith, they are such fun to do, and there are endless possibilities.
 
I used one of my fave Visible Image Stamps sets, from the new releases, for this project, it’s stunning and I love it, it’s called……
Glimmer of Lightplus the fabulous Rays of Light, and the Shine Bright setyou see the theme, lol !
And of course don’t forget the fabulous MDF, which come in a pack of 5…… Monoliths.



Visible Image - Glimmer of Light - Pauline Butcher 1

I used Dylusion Paints on the front, a Black base, then combination of colours on top, then stamped the Rays, using white Ink, where I wanted the little light bulbs to hang. I then stamped the little bulbs and the sentiment in Black Versafine Ink, and heat embossed the wonderful Moth, onto card , coloured them in using Distress Inks, and fussy cut them all.
 




I added glossy accents to the bulbs, and Stickles to the Moths.



Visible Image - Glimmer of Light - Pauline Butcher 2

On the other side, again I painted the MDF in Black, added some paste through a stencil, and when it was dry, used Gilding wax to highlight it.


 I stamped the Ray into Acetate, and heat embossed it in Yellow powder, and the large light bulb, again onto acetate, and heat embossed in Black powder. I stamped some more small light bulbs using Black ink, coloured them and then fussy cut, glued them to the MDF, and used Glossy Accents.
 




I wasn’t happy with the large bulb being black, so using a white pen I highlighted the outline. The Moths were stamped with Stazon, onto Shrink Plastic, and I coloured them with crayons, fussy cut them, then heated and watched the magic happen…… 
 


I hope I have given you a bit of inspiration on how to decorate the MDF Monoliths.
 
Check out the Visible Image places below for more inspiration……

Inky Notecards – Visible Image Stamps

Hi there! Thank you for coming to visit our blog today.

HUGE apologies for neglecting our blog for a few weeks! July was such a busy month.. so many orders to make, and then we escaped for a week away in beautiful Ibiza…



Santa Eulalia July 2016


We had a wonderful time and a much needed rest!



We have so many amazing Design Team projects to share with you, so we will be catching up with lots of posts every day for the foreseeable future, as we don’t want to miss out on any of them!


First up, here’s Kim Johnny with some fantastic inky inspiration…


Hi!

It’s my turn to share some creative Visible Image playtime. The kids are off from school and the time ran away from me a teeny bit. So, I wanted to make something simple and bright.

Hope you like them!


Using some of my most favorite stamps and Inktense Color Blocks, I made some clean and simple notecards.

I used the Flower INKognito and Butterfly INKognito Visible Image stamps.



Visible Image stamps - Inky butterfly - flower stamps - Kim Johnny


I applied the color block directly onto the stamps in various scribbles.




Misted the stamp with water, Inktense color blocks activate with water and
when dry are very stable and permanent.


The images are stamped onto watercolor paper I cut to size before stamping.




Stamp away.. I could easily do tons of these and not get bored!


Each one even using the same colors comes out unique.


Thanks for looking and hope you can make a bit of time to play!


hugs

Darkest Moments – Visible Image Stamps

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog today! Sorry for the lack of posts recently, we have just been inundated with orders for our Summer Release which is AMAZING! Thank you ♡  We are thrilled you are loving these new designs so much!

We have lots of amazing Design Team inspiration for you over the next few days! We’re kicking off with a brand new project from Teresa Morgan…



I am so excited to be sharing my first project with one of the new sets of Visible Image stamps – Glimmer of Light. This beautiful moth design comes with a cool light bulb and fantastic sentiment and is so versatile. I have created a mixed media canvas for you:



Visible Image stamps - Mixed Media canvas - Moth stamp - Glimmer of Light quote - Teresa Morgan


I used washes of DecoArt Media acrylics to created my background: Cobalt Teal Hue, Cobalt Turquoise Hue, Dioxazine Purple, Burnt Umber, Pthalo Green Blue. I flicked some Carbon Black Media Mister onto the damp wash then allowed to dry. Once dry I flicked a bit more of the black Media Mister (to create more defined spots) and did the same with White Linen Dylusions spray ink.



Visible Image Stamps - Glimmer of Light


I wanted to add some texture, so used white DecoArt Media Crackle Paste and black DecoArt Modelling Paste with some stencils, and once again set aside to dry.

I used the script stamp and flourish from the Revolution set to add some background detail. I stamped them both with black Archival Ink, and then used the script stamp with Ranger Sticky embossing powder and turquoise foil. I stamped the moth and light bulb with Archival Ink and used Glossy Accents to highlight the glass bulb.




Visible Image Stamps - Glimmer of Light


Finally I stamped the sentiment onto white card and cut it out, edging the pieces with black ink. I hope that you enjoyed today’s project – be sure to come back next week to see more of the new release stamps in use!!

Colourful Rain – Visible Image Stamps

Thank you for coming to visit our blog today 🙂

We are catching up with all the latest Design Team inspiration from the last few days, kicking off with Corrie Herriman…


Hello everyone,


I can’t get enough of this Visible Image  ‘Sparkle in the rain’ stamp set.  Isn’t it gorgeous…. So you probably haven’t seen the last of it…



Visible Image stamps - Sparkle In The Rain - Corrie Herriman


For this card the background was made with Distress Inks and a blending tool on a piece of white card stock which was cut slightly smaller than the card. I stamped the background with a swirl and water and a script stamp with grey archival ink. Next I stamped the girl under the umbrella and splattered some white ink.  I coloured some book text with the same distress inks and punched circles from it. I adhered these circles randomly on the card panel and then stamped part of the sentiment. I then doodled around the edge of the panel. Lastly I adhered the panel to the card.

Visible Image Stamps – Create and Craft TV Demo Cards

Good Morning and Happy Saturday to you! 

Today we are sharing Pauline’s amazing demo cards from our Create and Craft TV show last Saturday.. what an amazing show it was! Mark and Pauline managed to get 5 demos in between them which was awesome..that’s down to some fantastic prepping!

The first multibuy sold out in just half an hour and the second before the show ended! Thank you so much to everyone who watched the show, and who bought the stamps 🙂

Here’s Pauline with more details of how she created her stunning cards… 

Hi there my lovely friends,

As you probably know, Visible Image Stamps had a show on Create & Craft TV last Saturday, between the Awesome Mr Mark Alexander and myself, we managed to demo five cards, mine were very quick, so I thought I’d run through them again in a bit more detail…
 
Card One

Visible Image stamps - Feather - Angels Are Near - Pauline Butcher


The first demo was using the stamp set… Angels are Near.


For the background, I took a piece of white Centura Pearl card, and using 3 Distress ink colours, I blended them, spritzed it with water, and blotted with kitchen towel. 

Using the feather stamp covered in Versamark, I stamped in the middle, then heat embossed using white detail powder. Using the feather again, but only the splatty end of it, and a gold ink pad, I stamped around the edges of the inked background, I then applied gold gilding wax with my finger around the four edges. mat andd layered it onto a card blank. 

 I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using a gold sparkle EP, onto a small piece of card, added gilding wax to the edges, and mat and layered it onto the card

Visible Image stamps - Feather stamp - Pauline Butcher
 
The feather was stamped again onto a piece of heat proof acetate, with versamark, heat embossed using the gold sparkle EP again, and fussy cut, this was applied to the card using 3D glue.
 
Card Two
 
Visible Image stamps - Inky Butterfly - Live Life Now - Pauline Butcher

The stamp set is called Butterfly Inkognito Set.
 
I stamped both the butterfly and the sentiment on a white piece of card, using a Versamark pad, and heat embossed with Clear powder, when it had cooled, I blended over the stamping, using 3 colours of Distress ink, and like magic the image and sentiment appear, I then spritzed with water and dried. 

Using a tacky glue on my index finger I went around the edges of the card, then sprinkled glitter on it to give a sparkly edge.


Visible Image stamps - Inky Butterfly stamp - Pauline Butcher.1


I stamped the butterfly using versamark, onto heat proof acetate, and heat embossed using a white detail powder, I folded the acetate so’s that the butterfly’s wings were together, and cut some rounded wings, taking off all the ink splats, this was attached to the card leaving the wings free to flutter, I added glitter glue for that extra sparkle.
 
Card three


 Visible Image stamps - Behind Every Mask Lies A Story - Pauline Butcher


The stamp set is called Behind Every Mask.
 
Taking 2 similar colours of Distress ink, I used Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar, I put the ink straight from the pads onto my glass mat, sprayed water onto it so it was nice and wet, and ‘smooched’ (my term, lol) my card into the mixture to cover the card with a coloured wash, I dried it straight away using my heat gun. Using Picked Raspberry, I edged the cars with my blending tool.
 
Now to the bit that I did’nt show on TV, because of time… I mixed a small bit of gold mica powder with Picked Raspberry and water, and using a paint brush, I went around the edges of the background, I also did the same to a small piece of card for the sentiment. I added a touch more water to the mixture that was left, loaded up my paint brush with it and flicked it over the coloured background. 

Taking the image and the sentiment, I stamped them both using Picked Raspberry, I also coloured in the iris’s of the eyes with a blue pen, and added a dot of gold mice & water to the middle of the eye. 
 
Visible Image stamps - crow mask stamp - Pauline Butcher

I stamped the mask image with Versamark onto heat proof acetate, then used some yummy Pink/Gold sparkle EP  and heat sealed it, I fussy cut it, also cutting out the eyes too, and attached it to the card with 3D glue.
 

Thank you for watching the show, and also if you emailed in thank you too.
 
Check out the Visible Image Facebook Group, lots of daily inspiration, news and general chat, with lovely people who are fans of the awesome stamps.
 
I wish you and your families a very very Merry Christmas, and have a fabulous New Year.
 
Hugs, Pauline xxxxxx

Awesome Inspiration – Visible Image DT

Hello there! Thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today!

We are getting very excited now, as we will be heading off to Peterborough tomorrow for our Create & Craft TV show on Saturday morning at 11am!

Mark and Pauline will be demonstrating our stamps live on air, and they have some awesome projects planned 🙂

Today on the blog we’re sharing some of the gorgeous samples created by our amazing team using stamps on the show…



Visible Image - Butterfly INKognito - Live Life Now - Susanne Rose

Susanne Rose


I’m sharing some inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I made a CAS card using the Butterfly INKognito” together with the “Live Life Now ” Stamp.



Visible Image stamps - Live Life Now - Susanne Rose


This is a really quick and very elegant card! I used the Crealies Double Stitched Frame die and cut a rectangle shape from white cardstock. I masked a frame arround the base with washi tape, so that the stamped images don’t go close to the edges. I stamped the Butterflies with Distress Inks. I used “Dusty Concord”, “Picked Raspberry” and “Spiced Marmalade”. Finally I stamped the sentiment “Live Life Now” with StazOn “Jet Black” ink into the center. I mount everything with 3d foam pads to a white card.

Susanne.




Visible Image - Were Dreams - Kim Bacon

Kim Bacon


A simple card today featuring the gorgeous Where Dreams Take You sentiment.

Colour stencilled through circles and over stamped with the simple circle from the Universal set.

Happy Days! Kim

My tag has a dylusion and shaving foam background, and the Flower INKognito and Imperfection is Beauty stamps are heat embossed in wow black ebony.

Visible Image stamps - Vision INKognito - Eye stamp - Lisa Nygards

Lisa Nygards


I’ve had really fun and made a Canvas for today! Lovely to play around with colors and make a big mess sometimes. I’ve used the Vision INKognito (eye) and the sentiment from the set Behind Every Mask. Think they fit well together.



Visible Image stamps - Grungy Eye stamp - Canvas - Lisa Nygards


I’ve used only acrylic colors I think, and the white dots are heavy modeling paste. The eye is stamped on tissue paper and glued with decopage laque. The green in the eye is painted with pitt pastel pens when the decopage glue was dry. The size of the canvas is 6″ x 6″.





Visible Image stamps - Angels Are Near - Teresa Morgan

Teresa Morgan


I have used the beautiful Angels Are Near stamp set to create a Christmassy mixed media canvas.


To begin, I covered the canvas with some music print paper, torn around the edges. Then I added some gesso around the sides to soften the paper edges, and in random areas over the paper. Once dry I stamped the feather and embossed in white all over the canvas. I wanted a metallic edge to the feathers, so inked the stamp again (but only on the edges) and stamped over the top of the white embossing powder, adding copper embossing powder this time.



Visible Image - Feather stamp - Teresa Morgan


I drew a simple angel on some cardstock and painted with acrylic paint then cut out and glued in place. Next I stamped the sentiment, cut out and glued on to the angel.



Visible Image - Angels Are Near - Teresa Morgan


Finally I used some Pumice Stone Distress Ink around the edges of the canvas to age it and take away some of the whiteness of the gesso.


Teresa.

Pauline Butcher

I’m back to share some Visible Image inspiration with you. It’s a simple tag, I love tags, because they can be so quick to make, and there’s no pressure, lol !!!!
 
Visible Image stamps - Leave Your Fears Behind - Crow Tree - Pauline Butcher
 
The stamp set I used is Leave your Fears

Visible Image stamps - Leave Your Fears Behind - Crow Tree - Pauline Butcher 2


I used Brusho’s on the background, sprinkling and spritzing, then holding the tag on it’s side to drip down. I stamped using Versamark ink, and heat embossed with Black EP. The sentiment was heat embossed onto a small piece of card, again after Brusho’s had been dripped down it. The Viscose ribbon ( American Seam Binding) was coloured using Distress Inks. Simple, I hope you’ll give it a go.
 
See you soon,
Hugs, Pauline xxxxx



Susanne Rose


Hi my dear Visible Image Friends!

I’d like to share a mixed media card today, which is created with the gorgeous 
Butterfly INKognito and the Live Life Now stamps from Visible Image.


Visible Image stamps - Butterfly - Live Life Now - Susanne Rose


 I primed the background with white gesso first. After this was dry I embossed the butterfly stamp with clear powder. I also stamped part of the stamp in the left upper corner. I added colour with the Marabu Art Sprays. They are based on acrylics and can be removed from the embossed parts with a babywipe. The sentiment is stamped with StazOn.







Stamps from Visible Image:
Butterfly INKognito
Live Life Now


Other supplies:
Marabu Art Sprays (Chili, Raspberry, Petrol)
StazOn Jet Black
Clear Embossing Powder
Gesso


I wish you a nice day, Susanne.





Kim Johnny

Hello!

The weather finally feels chilly here, funny since about a week ago it was way above average and so hot!

So continuing with my wondeful Wintery tags for Visible Image, I have “Baby it’s cold outside”, today!

I sort of made my own Wintery set here, I used stamps from three different sets:
all 100% amazing Visible Image, “Baby It’s Cold”“White Christmas” and “Rockin Around”.



Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold - Kim Johnny

The background was created using various acrylic paints on my homemade gelatin plate. 

 

Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold - Kim Johnny 2


The snowflakes and sentiment were stamped directly onto the tag using Wow Opaque Bright White powder. The “Rockin'” tree was embossed with Wow Metallic Silver Ultra High. The Ultra High makes such an amazing texture, love it! I used a Perfect Medium pen to scribble the icicles and embossed in the same Opaque Bright White.



Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold - Tag - Kim Johnny


To add more depth and “chill” I randomly added some UTEE clear all over the tag.

I am freezing now, yikes! Time for some hot chocolate, yum 🙂

Keep warm & cool where ever you may be!

~hugs

Kim Bacon

Oh I love working with these Visible Image stamps! This flower from the INKognito range is just amazing.



Visible Image stamps - Imperfection is Beauty - Inky Flower stamp - Kim Bacon


The background is from remnants for a BIGGER Visible Image project which I am keeping under wraps for the moment. I first coloured some white card with Brusho paints and then applied a very dry layer of white gesso. For half of the card I then stamped the circles from the universal set and coloured some of them in with red Brusho. Another dry brushing with gesso before stamping and embossing in black with the sentiment and the flower. Each piece was then machine sewn onto black card.

I go for green today! I love the beauty of a clean card. The background is made with 4 different green distress inks. Then the mask and sentiment are stamped on top with black ink pad. To frame it I draw a line with a black thin marker. And yes – I used a ruler!

It starts with the usual Brusho background and some simple white embossing.

visibleimage-47a-inkywings-2015


Totally loved my new play with Brushos! I got an idea of trying with some other media then water, and it worked really well.

I masked off the edges on a plain white cardstock. Poured a pretty large amount of PPA (perfect paper adhesive) over it and swiped it around with my finger (yes, I used gloves, can’t stand the mess). Then I powdered two different of colors of Brushos over the surface. It started to blend a tiny bit, but not much so I started to swirl and drag the colors around with my finger again in the PPA. I dabbed around until I was satisfied. But something was missing…. ahhh GLITTER! So I took my finest glitter and sprinkled it over it all and then started to dry it with my heat gun. Slowly and moving it all the time to not over heat the adhesive. I could have set it aside for a few hours probably, but naaah… I wanted to finished it up.

It was dry after a while and I stamped the star from the Universal set serveral times on top. I used an archival inkpad. The sentiment Christmas Memories is stamped on Vellum and embossed in gold.

Note to self – put glue on the whole piece next time as it shows through a bit… lol.

Visible Image stamps - If You Have Hope - Kim Robertson


I made a 4×4 chunky canvas blank into a special little wall hanging using the one of the very special sentiment stamps as my focal point. It ended up looking a little vintage but I enjoyed the technique I used which was using a heavy bodied carvable paste coloured with ink and mica sprays to give it its rich tones, black lace and feathers always adds to the drama too.

I added a good amount of modelling paste to the front of this chunky canvas and simply using a palatte knife carved into it before drying with a heat gun, you can leave it over night if you refer and then you can sand the texture paste etc too if you would like a different effect. I wanted it to dry almost fabric looking so a little softer for this piece though.



This is the paste I used..



So after drying you can see it has puffed a little and is now matt



I used three different sprays two ink ones with no mica in a reddy tone and a chestnut brown and then a gold mica over spray gives it its shine. I dried each colour separately so the colours didn’t look muddy



I had some thin black lace in my stash so I added it in two layers facing each other on the sides. I used hot glue to attach it but you could easily use a fast drying wet glue also however tapes wont stand up to the heat gun too much and I reheated the top with sprays several times



Next I used this gorgeous sentiment that I loved immediately entitled If You Have Hope


I added my sentiment using Pinflair glue so it would self level on the top, and sit how I wanted to contrast with the backing.I also added a little angle resin piece I had and added some classic treasure gold to the corners and the resin angel to pick out the features.



Here it is diagonally so you can see the light from a different angle.


I added some black marabou feathers and some little black bead stamens poking out of the feather too and some little pearls in the corners with a few tiny roses in a matching tone to the bottom right of the sentiment for balance.So that’s it folks it turned out really well and I enjoyed putting this one together..



I hope you like it.


Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.


Love always
Kim

Today it’s a quick card from me, as time has been running away with me this week!

Visible Image stamps - Robot - Teresa Morgan

I have used the fun and funky Robot Data Set to make a cool birthday card

The background is blended Distress Inks with the binary stamp randomly stamped on it. I used Promarkers to colour the robot and monitor, mounting them on the card with 3d foam. The sentiment is embossed with WOW powders ultra fine white embossing powder.

It’s Fabulous Friday and time for me to share a creation I’ve made using some fantastic Visible Image Stamps

2015-11-20 Visible Image stamps - Wake Up And Be Awesome - Pauline Butcher


The stamps I’ve used on this card are…

 


I started off by sprinkling some Brusho’s on a piece of card, spritzing with water, then layering up more Brusho’s and water for a nice intense look, then dried it totally. 

I stamped the sentiment using Versamark onto this piece of card, then heat embossed it using white powder,and cut the card to the size I wanted. I decided at this stage that I wanted it to be very glossy, so using the Versamark pad I completely covered the card, and heat embossed using clear powder, and did this twice more. 

On a small piece of card, I stamped the butterfly using black ink, coloured it using a paintbrush and Brusho’s, then added Stickles on top for the bling factor.

Finally for the background, I stamped the tree’s using Distress inks, then added some more Stickles as blossom.

Planner, Tag and a little bit of Jazz @ Visible Image

Good Evening, hope you have had a decent start to the new week. We don’t tend to see daylight much here in the UK at this time of year.. dark going to work and dark coming home! So we are here to brighten up the dark rainy evening with some gorgeous Visible Image stamps inspiration 🙂


Here are some of the latest projects from our wonderful team…



Susanne Rose

Hi my dear Planner Fans!

It’s my day today to share some inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps.
I’d like to share today how I pimped my daily planner with stamps from Visible Image together with the DCWV 12″ x 12″ Silver Lining Stack:



When you cover a book with another paper it’s important that you only glue down the front and the back NOT the spine! I embossed all my images with silver powder.

The first inner page, which is normally white, was also pimped a little.

Kim Johnny

Hi dear friends!


Thanks so much for coming by today. A small post gearing up for the Holidays!


I had a small play making another Christmas tag, using my White Christmas Visible Image stamp set.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - White Christmas - snowflakes - Kim Johnny


I am really enjoying the vintage feel Holiday color scheme, the opposite of the bright colors I usually play with, hope you like it!




All images are stamped and heat embossed, I love embossing for shine and texture. The white is Wow Opaque Bright White, a fellow Visible Image teamie told me about this amazing powder. Love that it stays white on the dark background! Thanks Teresa 🙂


Have a wonderful day.


Hugs and well wishes,

Kim Bacon

My DT piece for today features one of my favourite, and unusual stamps from Visible Image.


Back in February 2015 the guys at Visible Image came up with yet another brilliant set of stamps with a music theme.


I can’t remember seeing any stamps like this before, and when they were launched they sold like hot cakes!


It’s nice to revisit old favourites and I hope you are inspired by this card.



2015-11-16 Visible Image stamps - Jazz It Up - Saxophonist stamp - Kim Bacon

First I painted a red and orange background using Brushos and then used some bleach to add the stars.


I used black embossing powder for the main image, the sentiment and one of the stars.


Some mounting and layering and a little bit of wet brush work to add a shadow and the job was done!

Fabulous inspiration @ Visible Image

Hello There! We had a great time at the Hobbycrafts show in the NEC last week, it was so great to meet lots of our wonderful customers and we also met lots of crafters who hadn’t yet discovered our awesome stamps! We were thrilled to receive so many fantastic comments about our designs, our stand, and of course the amazing samples created by our brilliant Design Team.

Receiving comments like ‘I loved your stand at the NEC, so many exciting stamps’ and ‘Wow your stamps are so different! How have I never seen you before?!’ make all the hard work and long hours so worthwhile! We’d like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who came to see us and bought our stamps 🙂

We’d also like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Pauline Butcher who held fantastic ‘Make & Take’ sessions on our stand throughout the show, even teaching people who had never stamped before to create an awesome tag they were extremely proud of 🙂 Well done!


While we were away at the show our team were busy as always creating such gorgeous things to inspire you, so here on the blog today we will be catching up with all their cards and projects. So… grab yourself a cuppa and enjoy today’s post…



Kim Johnny

Today I have a mixed media canvas using some fabulous Visible Image stamps!

The canvas is small, about 5 inches by 7 inches.


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Good Times - canvas - inky flower stamp - Kim J


It is primed with white DecoArt gesso. On top of the gesso, I did some random stamping using various Visible Image stamps. Over the base coat I added color using DecoArt paints and Derwent Inktense Color Blocks.

I used the “Good Times” sentiment from the No Regrets set.


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Good Times - canvas - inky flower stamp - Kim J 2


I wanted to try something a bit different to get more texture, so I stamped the awesome Flower INKognito in Archival Ink onto fabric.


I stamped around the edge of the swatch with the ‘splatter dots’ portion of Flower INKognito. In the background you can see a few dots from the Retro Dots Background stamp also.




Sue Joseph

I love this beautiful Poinsettia stamp, it’s adorable <3, the sentiment is from the Baby it’s cold set.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold - Poinsettia stamp - Sue Joseph


For my background I used black and red dylusion spray and shaving foam, love it!

For the poinsettia I used bright white wow embossing powder on black card. Fussy cut and put together with mini sticky pads 🙂


Love that flower a lot!


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold - Poinsettia stamp - Sue Joseph 2




Lisa Nygards


I just love to make christmas cards this time of the year. It starts to build up the right atmosphere before the ”big day”.

The background is made by masking of a square and then add a few different colors of distress ink. I’ve used three different blue, but then I decided to add some pink in the middle at the end. On top of the ink I brushed a small amount of white/clear mica powder. Then I stamped the tree from Rockin’ Around set with black Versa Fine ink pad. Dried it a bit and the brushed on some gold mica powder. It sets even after a while since the ink dry very slow. Brushed of the excess powder.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - White Christmas sentiment - Brush Christmas tree stamp - Lisa Nygards


The sentiment from White Christmas set is stamped with the same ink pad but now on a piece of Vellum. Here the ink dries even slower so I heated it for a while, and then brushed on some blue mica powder on top to coordinate with the blue background. Mounted it on a card base and finally added some bling at the tree.




Teresa Morgan


If you are anything like me you will always be looking for different ways of using your stamps to get as much value for money as you can. This week I have taken a completely non-Christmas stamp set and created a fun Christmas card!



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Alien character stamp - Greetings Earthlings - Teresa Morgan


My background is a piece of white cardstock which I sprayed with Goosebumps spray. (For those of you who haven’t come across this before, it’s a bit like a thinner version of Glossy Accents in a spray bottle. It dries completely clear and raised up, making a great resist for inks). Once dry I blended a couple of blue Distress Inks over the card, then with a damp kitchen towel quickly wiped over to reveal the ‘snow’. Then I added some torn card across the bottom and smeared some Stickles along the edge to create the snowy ground.

I coloured the Alien with Promarkers, cut him out and glued in place. The little Santa hat is drawn freehand, then coloured and glued on his head!


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Alien character stamp - Teresa Morgan


The sentiment is also from the Alien Invader Set. I stamped it in black then added the word Season’s with a red Promarker before cutting out and matting onto red card.




Pauline Butcher

The stamps I used on this week’s card are… Magic of Christmas, the top of the Tree from Rockin AroundSleigh Silhouette, and the small starburst from Sparkle at Christmas.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Believe in the magic of Christmas - sleigh stamp - Pauline Butcher


I started with a background made fom Brusho’s, just sprinkling the colour and spritzing with water, and letting it drip. I stamped the small star using a brusho and water mixture. The Sleigh was stamped using a Blue Versafine ink, along with the top of the tree stamp. The snow is white Frantage plus glitter, and the sentiment was heat embossed in white, and fussy cut. Stickles was added to finish it off.




Susanne Rose


I LOVE shaker cards. And it was time to create my first shaker card with Visible Image Stamps. I picked the White Christmas set because I’m in love with the snowflake. I used it a lot of times during the last few weeks, because it is so awesome and so versatile! On this card I did an embossing resist technique with the snowflake and Distress Ink “Mermaid Lagoon”. I used silver powder to emboss the sentiment onto some Vellum.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Dreaming of a white Christmas stamp - snowflake - Susanne Rose


I decorated the shaker window with dies from Marianne Design and a little bit of snow, beads and sequins. The background is also colored with “Mermaid Lagoon”. It is so easy to build up these cards and they are so beautiful.




Kim Johnny


Have you started getting ready for the Holidays, shopping, wrapping gifts, yet? Just in case you are at the wrapping stage….today I wanted to share a quick gift tag.

I used the Visible Image stamp set, Rockin’ Around.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Brush Christmas tree stamp - Rockin' Around - Kim J


Take a piece of white cardstock or your favorite paper.  Fold the top down almost 1/3 of the way to make the flap. On the underside of the flap you can write your message or greeting.


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Brush Christmas tree stamp - Rockin' Around - Kim J 2


I stamped and clear embossed the full trees on the inside first. Then I stamped and clear embossed the tree on the top flap. I  masked off the lower ‘underneath tree’ portion with the clear plastic sheet the stamps are covered with for storage, I did not want to get a ghostly image if I did not line it up perfectly.

I added color using Distress Inks in vintage tones. The spritzed with water mist. Once dry there were some areas I wanted to tone down so I used some Dylusions spray ink in white.




Kim Bacon

A simple card today, just white and mauve.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Flower INKognito - Imperfection is beauty - Kim Bacon

I started by painting a piece of card with watercolor paint, Brushos as it happens.


When that was completely dry I used a coarse brush to apply a very very very dry brushing of white gesso in one direction only. Onto that I stamped the Flower INKognito and Imperfection is Beauty sentiment with white embossing powder. I tore the pieces to give a soft edge.


As I had my sewing machine out on the desk behind me I decided to attach all the pieces with stitches. A scattering of white brads and voila!



Lisa Nygards


Today I decided to go real sweet (cute)!

I’ve made a lollipop card. Easy to do with a paper straw and some fantasy on top. I’ve used the BIG Merry Christmas stamp on this one, and embossed the words with Platinum embossing powder. Die cutted the parts and two extra for the backside.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Merry Christmas - Lisa Nygards


Forgot to take a picture on the backside, but it’s only a white circle there in the middle so I can write a message if I like to.



visibleimage-46b-inkywings-2015


I did a double bow and attached a charm to it and then decorated with some bling around the circle.




Teresa Morgan


We’ve all been in Christmas mode for a while now so I thought I’d take a break from the festivities this week and share a funky birthday card.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Captain Awesome - spaceman character stamp - Teresa Morgan


I have used the amazing Captain Awesome Set to create a fun shaker card! The background is blended Distress Inks with some faux bleach spots (created by splashing some water then dabbing off with kitchen roll). The image is coloured with Promarkers, then cut ut and glued onto the background.

I die cut a circle aperture in some teal card, stamped and embossed the sentiments, then attached some acetate behind the aperture. This is mounted on 3d foam with some star sequins inside.

BIG PINK week @ Visible Image

Hi there and thank you for coming to visit our blog today 🙂

We are turning everything PINK this week in support of Breast Cancer Care’s BIG PINK fundraising event!

Our Design Team are getting ready for our BIG PINK BLOG HOP this Friday, October 16th, and have been creating some gorgeously PINK inspiration to inspire you to enter our PINK Show & Tell challenge this month… you will find more details HERE! We really hope you will join in, and help us raise as much as we can for this wonderful charity.


So here’s todays PINK inspiration for you…



Kim Johnny

For my inspiration piece today, I want to share a small canvas I made…


2015-10-12 Visible Image stamps - Leave Your Fears Behind - PINK card - Kim Johnny


I built up the background with some stencils, and drywall tape. The Visible image stamps  Grunge Harlequin and Ink Splats are the border images.

My center is the fabulous Butterfly INKognito.

Leave Your Fears Behind is embossed and cut apart for movement. I adore this powerful statement. It is wonderful!

Have a fabulous week and check back soon more more PINK fun! Kim




Susanne Rose

It’s the month of breast cancer awareness… I made a pink card that should signalize courage and strength! Cancer is a horrible disease and so many people are affected.


2015-10-12 Visible Image stamps - This Is Me - PINK card - Susanne Rose


I used the Retro Dots Background stamp from Visible Image and embossed it with white embossing powder. The embossing acts as a resist to any kind of watercolor. I used Distress Inks to color the card.

For some more texture I used the swirl and the script stamp from the Revolution Set. I added two sentiments, first the one from the Cheshire Cat Set (Which way you go depends on where you want to be) and second “This is Me” from the This Is Me set.

The die cuts are from CAS-ual Fridays and Die-Namites dies. I embossed one of the branches with Distress Embossing Powder.

“This is Me” is stamped with Memento Luxe and embossed with clear embossing powder. I added some half beads and sequins to finish it up.

Susanne



Kim Bacon

I have gone all out for my project today, well, I don’t ever do subtle do I?


2015-10-12 Visible Image stamps - Imperfection is Beauty - PINK card - Kim Bacon


I used Dylusions mister inks on this card and the colours are very intense. But they fit the brief, which is to create in pink.

I have used… the Revolution set, Imperfection is Beauty sentiment and the Free Your Imagination set

Enjoy your week, get crafty and show us what you have been up to!

Happy Days!  Kim




Karen Liddle

As many of my regular visitors will know, I lost my lovely sister in law (more like a sister) Lynn to this terrible decease 4 years ago after a 6 year battle and many, many operations and treatments.

You can read my tribute to Lynn HERE.  The sentiment is very fitting for the kind of person Lynn was.


2015-10-12 Visible Image stamps - Hope For Tomorrow - PINK card - Karen Liddle


I made the background with 3 shades of inks, Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick, and Adirondack ink in Shell Pink.  I then over stamped with various different background stamps:

I stamped the Butterflies on a piece of card and coloured using the same inks as the background, then cut them out and glued them to the piece leaving the wings loose so they stand up, adding dimension.  To finish off I stamped the sentiment from the Time After Time set and added it to the card along with some silver card candy.

Karen

Visible Image Stamps – Latest Inspiration

Hello and welcome to our rather neglected blog… well just lately anyway!!!

It has been a busy old time here at Visible Image basecamp for a number of reasons…. Loads of orders (thank you!)…exhibiting at quite a few craft shows… a road trip and some very exciting meetings… AND and lots of designing too!!!

Right.. on with today’s post! We have so much gorgeous new inspiration to show you from our fabulous Design Team, so make yourself a cuppa and read on…



Sue Joseph

My card this week is ALL about the sentiment


2015-10-10 Visible Image stamps - Best Days Of Your Life - Sue Joseph


I LOVE this verse, it’s called The Best Days. I used wow black ebony to heat emboss it and with a verse like this you dont need a busy card, hence just my paint splats, the words say it all!

I created the background with my new toy the Art spinner and used shimmer paints and neon paint. Layered and matted onto some green mirror board and kraft card and finished with some flat back green gems and hessian. ribbon.




Pauline Butcher

No your eyes are not out of focus, lol, I wanted to try something a little different with this card, and I used a couple of super duper Visible Image Stamps.


2015-10-10-Visible-Image-stamps-You Are Loved - Pauline Butcher


My inspiration came from a retro 3D poster I saw recently, although I haven’t tried to view it through a pair of 3D glasses, lol, but you get the idea !!!!

The Visible Image stamps I’ve used are You are Loved and Grunge Polka Dot.

I stamped the background with the Grunge Polka Dots, 4 times, using 4 different Distress ink colours, I also did the same on another piece of card and stamped the sentiment in Versamark, heat embossed it using clear embossing powder, fussy cut it, mounted it onto black card and fussy cut it again, to give a thin black outline.
And hey look, no bling or glitter used, that was incredibly hard, lol !!!!



Teresa Morgan

This week I am sharing a bright and beautiful card..


2015-10-10 Visible Image stamps - Music Wave stamp - Ink Splats - Teresa Morgan

I have stamped the Ink Splats with various colours of Distress Ink to create my inky rainbow. I then took the music wave stamp from the Soul Music set, and stamped with black Archival Ink, then flipped the stamp upside down to continue the flourish across the page. I love how the music notes are not all ‘the right way up’, so you can use this stamp in any direction without it looking odd!




Lisa Nygards

The wonderful sentiment I’ve used today has gone PINK this month! Not the actual stamp, but the package. It’s called STAY STRONG and during october 50% of the sales for this stamp will be donated to Breast Cancer Care! Buy yours now!


2015-10-10 Visible Image stamps - Stay Strong sentiment stamp - Lisa Nygards


I’ve played around with pink inkpads that react with water, and some mists to do my background. The horse is from the Revolution set, and the darker spots around the edge are stamped with part of the other horse from the same set. When it was dry I stamped the sentiment on top of it all.




Doreen OBrien

I am back with some more inspiration using the gorgeous Visible Image stamps


2015-10-10 Visible Image stamps - Colours of The Wind - Autumn Leaf stamp - Doreen OBrien


I have used Gelato’s for my background and over stamped with the Bronte Script. The leaf stamp and sentiment from the Colours of the Wind set have been inked up with Red Geranium and Potting Soil Archival inks.




Kim Bacon

I have been having a look through some of my old stuff and saw this little gem which didn’t get published last year. It is still such a cool technique and it is nice to revisit some of my older projects. It means that new visitors to me and Visible Image don’t miss out on something!


2015-10-10 Visible Image stamps - Create With Your Soul - Flowers- Kim Bacon

So, I started with a nice crisp piece of white card. Using those pots of inky paint from Pinflair called Gentle Blends, I applied colour to the daisy silhouette from the Happy Birthday set from the ‘More Than Words’ range. I used a sponge to apply the colour directly to the stamps. I stamped the first time onto my base card and then did a second stamping onto a separate piece of white card. This gave me a vibrant first impression and a dull, light second impression.


I then used the seeded flower head silhouette from the Thinking of You set, again from the ‘More Than Words’ range, to overstamp the coloured daisies in black ink.


On the piece of card that I had done the second impression stamping, I used black ink to stamp the Create With Your Soul sentiment. All pieces were layered onto black card and the sentiment was added to the main card using foam pads to raise it up.



Susanne Rose

I’d like to share a card today on which I used the awesome Smile Sparkle Shine stamp.


2015-10-10 Visible Image stamps - Smile Sparkle Shine - Susanne Rose


The background of the card is created with Twinklings H2O. The Visible Image sentiment is stamped with Memento Luxe and embossed with clear embossing powder.




Pauline Butcher

I’m back with a little bit of inspiration for you, a card using some of those fantastic Visible Image Stamps that I love using so much! On this card, the stamps I used are Winter Tree and the sentiment is Me Time


2015-10-10 Visible-Image-stamps- Me Time sentiment - Forest Background - Pauline-Butcher

A very simple card to make, I used some Brusho paints on the background, mixing them with water and just washing them over the card. I then used some Spectrum Noir Aqua Tint inks, and using the dropper provided in the kit, just dripped them down the card. This gives the impression of trees, so I stamped Winter Tree with Distress Inks onto the inky background. I finished off with the sentiment stamped in Versamark, and heat embossed with Black powder, I filled in the letters with some Stickles for that little bit of sparkle.




Kim Johnny

I am so happy it is October! I love the cooler weather, here for me it should be soon anyways! And of course, I love Halloween!


2015-10-10 Visible Image stamps - Paint The Town DEAD - Zombie - Kim Johnny


Today for my Visible Image DT play I made a tag using the wicked Zombie Dawn set!

She is a bit more ghosty I think… On top of the acrylic paint and ink background, everything is heat embossed. I really love how embossing makes everything shiny and adds more POP!  The pumpkins are made with texture paste using a Dreamweaver metal stencil with orange embossing powder on top.

Zombie Dawn, the hands and sentiment are all fine stamps by Visible Image! I hope you have fun getting ready for Halloween later this month and I would really love to see what you make!





Karen Liddle

Time for some more inspiration using stamps from the fab Visible Image..


2015-10-10 Visible Image stamps - Poinsettia stamp - Karen Liddle

First I stamped the Poinsettias from the Pointsettia Stamp Set, then used Brushos to add the colours.  Starting with the flowers, I took a paintbrush and painted the flowers, with water, then sprinkled just a tiny amount of the red Brusho and spread it around a little to fill in all the petals, I did this for each flower.  Then I painted water onto the background, and again sprinkled the Brushos, letting the colour spread as normal, but using the paintbrush to help the colour spread.  I finished off with gold gems in the flower centres and the Merry Christmas sentiment.

Awesome Tags Tutorial @ Visible Image

Hi there! Thanks for popping over to our blog today. 

Kim Robertson has put together some brilliant step by step tutorials for the amazing tags she created for her ‘Make & Take’ projects at the Ally pally show. We hope you will have a go…

Hello my lovelies

This post shows you how I created the tags for the ‘make and take’ sessions during the recent show at Ally Pally with Visible Image.

I created a Christmas one and a UTEE one! We had a great time, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and went away with a tag they had created themselves, using several different techniques. Many of the ladies and gents had never even touched a stamp or inks before, and were very happily surprised at how special their tags looked, and they were all totally individual!

We were fully booked by around 10.30-11 for the Saturday sessions and just had a few places left on Sunday, but we did tweak the 6 seat table into 7 and 8 sometimes to accommodate where we could through both days, but still had several people asking for spaces throughout the show, so that tells me you were all very interested in the gorgeous stamps and techniques we had used on these tags.

Thank you to those of you that came or wanted to join in, and for all the lovely kind words. I do take those words to heart and appreciate every one taking the time to want to speak with me, and Mark and Helen the dynamic duo…  Haha!  I call them this because Visible Image is Mark and Helen.. no huge team, no one helping, just Mark and Helen! They create, make, hand cut, and package every single stamp by hand.. every single deeply etched amazing stamp made by their own fair hands! Going to the show and seeing the work involved in building the stand, again just the two of them! I am in awe… my hat is firmly off to them, yet the stamps are so amazingly priced, and you can do sooo much with them. I thought I would mention all this for those of you who didn’t know!

Here are the step by steps so you can follow along at your leisure, rather than under the time constraints at the show….

The first one is the autumnal tag…



2015-09-17 Visible Image stamps - UTEE - Be Brave -Stay Strong - Leaf - Kim Robertson


It was to show the layering of the background and how you can create them but also stamping in to Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE).




So to start I took the script stamp that was from the Revolution set of stamps which is still one of my favourite sets. I used it with black archival ink which is oil based so we will need to waft a little heat over it to set it so we don’t smudge it. I was stamping off the page onto paper.

Then rub over with an anti static pad this helps it to dry even further and stops the embossing powder sticking to the archival ink just done. Clean your stamp from using the archival with a wipe and using embossing ink, versamark or perfect medium etc stamp the same script or whatever you would like on the opposite side of the tag or where you would like it, we are avoiding the centre as we will be adding the utee to the centre. Add your embossing powder, I used clear as the tag here is white but you can use white if your tag is buff coloured etc. Heat set.




Next I chose a couple of colours of ink and I colour it corner corner side so what I mean by that is two corners and the opposite side will be one colour and the corners and the opposite side will be the other colour.

Once you have the first layer of ink on the tag (don’t expect  to much at this stage) go back and add a second layer of the same colour to deeply saturate the paper so it should look like the above at this stage.



Next I took my Autumn leaf  from the Colours of the Wind set with Rusty Hinge DI, and added that on the bottom right corner tone on tone, sticking to that theme I added a few more little leaves in the orange with orange and in the blue with the Blue.


To pull the eye more into the centre I added a darker in around the edges at this stage. I didn’t do this bit at the show just purely as we were in a real tight time crunch as the utee part is the longest section of the make and take. Lastly here I sprayed some water into my hand and flicked it onto the tag, I Left it until the ink starts to dissolve (it looks like a ring starts to appear around the edge) once it does that blot off the water with a paper towel, blot don’t rub. I used the dark ink also to stamp a swirl across the hole in the tag and a coupe of other places as another little layer on the backing.


You can see it here.



The Backing is now finished.


You can waft a heat gun over it to dry it but I just put it to one side now to dry while I do the utee section.




This is what we are looking to achieve next.


To keep this a little shorter I will explain how to in easy steps.

  1. Choose sentiment
  2. Cover that stamp in versamark/perfect medium and set aside ready.
  3. Take a small piece of card and add some Versamark/perfect medium straight to the card you can also use tombow glue if you prefer lots of bubbles. (make sure you have enough for your sentiment to fit it)
  4. Tip on UTEE , pour off excess onto paper and tip it back into the pot now before you switch on your heat gun. (pour off don’t tap, we want to build thick layers.
  5. Heat this from BELOW. Once it starts to melt you can heat above but if you do it at this stage you will blow it all over the table, house, furniture, cat, dog  you get the drift haha…
  6. Next if you take a long time putting the gun down and slurping ya tea etc and the utee cools right down you can add more versamark (don’t do it while its molten folks or bye bye versamark) and the next layer of UTEE, if you are quick and you have heated the UTEE and it is still boiling hot tip on more UTEE as it will stick to itself. Melt again.
  7.  Repeat the last stage a third time (three layers of utee).
  8. Have your stamp ready next to you and as soon as your 3rd layer of UTEE is molten and still wet add your stamp into it , push hard but don’t skid it, so straight down onto the utee. once it is set into the utee take your hands off and sit back for a second. Leave it alone to cool slightly. Don’t go make the tea or walk the cat, we don’t want it cold, we just need it to cool off a bit… A. you don’t want to burn yourself and B. you need it to keep its shape when we remove the stamp.
  9. Ok its been a while so pick up the stamp block and pull the card away from it.
VOILA…. You did it…. Marvel at your cleverness… Hehe!


Rip the edges all around , crack the utee ( trust me it looks good. ) then rub a dark ink into the edges that are exposed, I favour walnut stain or vintage photo but if you use blues or your tag is really dark colours consider black, it looks fab.


OK add foam to the back and add it to your tag. choose some nice ribbon for the top and add some bling or a button to cover the knot if you choose or leave it rustic. I also Matted and layered my tag twice using card from my stash to make it nice and thick to last the rigours of the show.


2015-09-17 Visible Image stamps - UTEE - Be Brave -Stay Strong - Kim Robertson



The sets I used on this one were ‘Revolution’, and ‘Colours of the Wind’. And the sentiment is ‘Stay Strong’ which I love. I will show all the sets at the end of the post.





Next is our Christmas tag…. 



2015-09-17 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Tag - Merry Little Christmas - Kim Robertson


So those of you who were at the show saw the sparkle on this tag. It is not showing up on the camera as well, but people were constantly commenting on this sparkle! If I was in the glitter trade I could have sold a fortune lol, but it wasn’t about that, it was showing these stamps off, and how they stand up to all I put them through hehe.


So lets gets started..



I used a slight off white card so for this stage I embossed some snowflakes in clear, If your card is buff coloured like Manila tags then you can emboss in white if you prefer or keep it buff its entirely your choice.

So ink your snowflake with Versamark/Perfect medium and stamp off the edge of the tag, tip on your choice of embossing powder and heat set.



Choose two colours of ink , I used here seedless preserves and peeled paint but it kinda looks like dusty Concorde in this light for pictures. You can use any colours you like together, and at the show it was fantastic the colour schemes and different tags people were creating. I was soooo proud of everyone as they achieved what they thought they couldn’t do…. yeahhhh!!

So again, I colour corner corner side, I like how it comes out and it always works, I use the analogy of how flowers grow, they always seem to be off numbers and look better if you plant them the same in 3’s or 5’s etc.

First layer of ink we are trying to get wet into dry so it will never look really cool with just one layer of ink but this is what it looks like with one (above) it will be patchy and may have some lines etc, do not worry about it just move on.



Next we add a second layer of the same inks, it will start to look much more saturated and more like the real colours and much more blended. Once this is done we will use the same snowflake tone on tone so green on green purple on purple or whatever colours you choose. I added just a few on edges here and there like branches almost as I knew I needed room on the left for my tree and sentiment.

I also spritzed some water in my fingers and flicked it at the tag waiting til it started to dissolve the ink as it is water based (its gets a ring around the edge as it starts to lift) take a piece of kitchen towel or a cloth and dab the water off, dab not rub. You will be left with patches of missing ink which gives us more texture to the background.

If you were doing a water scene you could used these dots and turn them very simply into bubbles as I have done many times before on the blog but I will do again this week to show what I mean.



So this tag I made at home was very much bigger than the ones we used at the show again with time constraints of a ‘make and take’ we had to downsize a little but here I took my tree as I showed on the blog last week used two or three greens (use the colours you want on your tag) and I stamp out three slightly overlapping, then I go on the next layer and overlap and layer them til I have a larger tree, which looks like above.




You can see lots of little white dots on my tree in a zig zag pattern like a pearl string, that is achieved with a white pen making dots so this was next.



Now if you look at the tree, I went back and added gold baubles which are just using a gold gel pen and drawing three circles slightly smaller in size randomly all over the tree, I know we are covering this in glitter so you think it will not show, but it all adds to how it looks at the end, without this step the tree can look flat.



I also added some white around the edge some of the snowflakes in the purple to pull it forward.



Next just above my tree I stamped in Versamark/Perfect Medium and embossed in gold the sentiment that goes with the little tree set, it says ‘Have yourself a merry little Christmas’.


I took a quickie glue pen and dotted it all over the tree randomly, then tipped on some iridescent glitter. Once this was done I took some glue, any that is thicker than the quickie glue that dries clear, and laid down much bigger blobs of glue randomly all over the tree and tied on Glass Glitter. Now glass gitter is the most sparkly shiny glitter ever, but you do have to be careful as it will cut you after all it is glass shards. But, treat it with respect and you can do some amazing things with it. So tip on your glass glitter and tip off the excess, admire the sparkle as it will be reflecting all the iridescent glitter underneath and all the work you have put in to building up to this bit.




I was testing out which bow I wanted at the top of the tag here but I ended up matting and layering this one to make it nice and sturdy for the show, and then going back in with the ribbon at the top and the bow and then I found a nice button which I added too.



2015-09-17 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Tag - Merry Little Christmas - Kim Robertson


Which you can now see all finished on this tag. You can’t see half the sparkle this tag has here as the folks who saw it in person with be able to tell you!


So that was the two finished ‘make and takes’ from the Alexandra Palace craft show this weekend, September 2015.


These are the stamp sets I used on these two tags…







Visible Image Stay Strong sentiment stamp







You can either use these stamps, which are all linked directly to the stamps in the Visible Image shop, or browse through the stamps until you find something you would like to use on your tags. It isn’t about using the same, it is making tags individual to you and who you would like to give it to. The Christmas one can be added to a tree for example and themed to match.

I hope you enjoyed the process of making these tags and would like to give it a go, I was astounded at the quality and clever pieces made at the show as we were limited on time of course being ‘make and takes’ not workshops, but everyone managed to do brilliantly. I really enjoyed meeting you all, and will treasure all the hugs and your kind words.



Again a huge thank you to all who wanted to book, and I apologise to those who could not book on. But, I will be doing a lot more so keep your eyes out… and do ask your local craft shops to ask for Visible Image demo days if you would like us to do that.


Visible Image has some amazing plans coming up, and over the next year you will hear an awful lot about them and see lots of new goodies. They have already got to the stage where they have their own office and are no longer making the stamps from home, which is an amazing achievement, and soon they will be moving forward with the next phases, I am sooo proud to call them my friends, and to have been with them for so long.

Great things to come folks…..



Thank you to all who attended, a huge thank you to Mark and Helen for asking me to come along and looking after me with all the refreshments during the shows too.


See you all soon


Much Love
Kim

Doreen OBrien


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - You Are Loved - Doreen OBrien


For this card I have used a Technique called ‘Josephs Coat Technique’. It is basically a Resist embossing technique. I have used distress inks and the gorgeous “You are Loved” stamp for this. xxx



Susanne Rose


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Gift Box - Susanne Rose


I’d like to share a stamped Christmas box today. I embellished it with the lovely Poinsettia stamps from Visible Image and two die cut ornaments from Noor! Design.

The box is cut with the Silhouette Cameo out of kraft cardstock and embossed with the script stamp from the Visible Image Revolution set and white embossing powder. I distressed the edges of the box with a scissors. The poinsettias are stamped with a darker red on red cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. Now I only need to fuzzy cut the flowers and adhere the pieces together.

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold Outside - snowflake stamp - Tag - Kim Johnny 2     2015-09-29 Visible Image - Baby It's Cold Outside - snowflake stamp - Tag - Kim Johnny 2


Today I have a bit more winter spirit inspiration to share. I used one of the new Visible Image Christmas stamp sets, “Baby, it’s cold outside”. The snowflake is so detailed and so awesome for any Winter project.

The background is layered with some stencil work, Tim Holtz “Gothic” with modeling paste. Then several layers of DecoArt acrylic paint, antiquing cream and some Distress paint. I used Ranger Super Fine White embossing powder on the beautiful snowflake and sentiment.



Karen Liddle


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Snowflakes & Butterflies verse stamp - Karen Liddle

I created the swirly background using the shaving foam technique, such a fun thing to do!  I then over stamped that with the snowflake stamps from the White Christmas set, and heat embossed using white embossing powder. Then I stamped and mounted the Snowflakes & Butterflies verse (which was written by Helen).



Kim Bacon


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Imagine Dream Inspire - Kim Bacon

Here is my inspirational piece for you today on this wet, and somewhat autumnal day! I have used the Imagine Dream Inspire stamp set, Grunge Polka Dot background stamps and the scribbles circle stamp from the Universal set.



Sue Joseph


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Time is precious - melting clock stamp - Sue Joseph


For my CAS tag today I used 2 inks Memento tuxedo black and festive berries DI (My favourite red).

The stamps I used are Time is Precious, ‘Take Risks’ from the Be Happy Set and ‘Tick Tock from the White Rabbit setLayered and matted onto red and black card with some red fibres and an eyelet to finish 🙂



Lisa Nygards


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Robot Note Holder - Lisa Nygards


Today I have something to show that isn’t Halloween, and it isn’t Christmas either. I have manage to do something else – lol. I spend my weekend at a crop in Norway and got some inspiration for a tag so I just had to play a bit. This is what ”came out” of it. I’ve use the Robot Data Set from Visible Image for this tag.

I started with stamping the numbers on my white tag with embossing ink. Then I used clear powder. Then I started to mist and drip a bunch of different colors on the tag until I was satisfied. I ran the tag through an embossing folder to get some structure, and added a dark distress ink around the edges. I added a bunch of embellishment and colored my hug snug ribbon with mists and alcohol inks.

When the tag was ready and the robot mounted with 3D foam I covered the whole robot with Diamond Glaze.




Teresa Morgan


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Grunge Flourish - Merry Christmas - Teresa Morgan


I am sharing a quick and easy card – perfect for those of us who have a lot of Christmas cards to make and not a lot of time. I’ve used the fabulous Merry Christmas XL and Grunge Flourish from Visible Image stamps.

I stamped the flourish in each corner and embossed with Candy Apple embossing powder from WOW powders. The sentiment is embossed in black and layered onto a die cut oval. The whole thing is matted onto silver mirri card for a bit of Christmas bling!



Doreen OBrien


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Christmas cards - Doreen OBrien


I have a pair of Christmas Cards for you today. I used a distress resist technique for the backgrounds using the Snowflake from the White Christmas set. I have also used the “White Christmas sentiment” and Merry Christmas sentiment. xxx



Susanne Rose


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Cookie cup - Susanne Rose 2      2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Cookie cup - Susanne Rose


It’s my day today to share some inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I’d like to share a “Cookie Cup” today, which is decorated with the super cool “Rockin’ Around” set from Visible Image.

The Christmas tree and the sentiment is stamped with Memento Luxe ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The cup is a cutting file from Silhouette Store. The tree is cut with the Pix Scan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.



Kim Johnny


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Create Your Imagination - Kim Johnny 2


I started off making a postcard, so it is 4 inches by 6 inches on mixed media paper. I added lots of fun layers of Distress Ink and water. I have just picked up some of the micro beads and wanted to play with those too.  Then I was looking at my dies and have this Spellbinders Aster flower that was calling out to me, so I had to make one! I really like how it frames the awesome sentiment by Visible Image, “Create your imagination” from the “This is me”,set. So now my postcard has dimension, which is really fun but I don’t think it would go into the mail system very well as a traditional postcard! So it is a small canvas with lots of color!



Karen Liddle


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Where Dreams Take You - Karen Liddle

The background was created with Distress Inks, and over stamped with the Where Dreams Take You and Plasma stamps. The sentiment was heat embossed with gold embossing powder.



Kim Bacon


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Live Life Now - Ink Splats - Kim Bacon

I started with a Brusho coloured piece of card in shades of purple, lime and teal and added the really useful Bronte Script stamp using teal ink. Just a hint of it stamped randomly but always level. I added some ink splats stamps in purple and teal. When that was done I cut the piece down before sewing it to a matting layer of cream watercolour card.

The tag was cut from another coloured piece of card but this time instead of the big purple splats I used the Live Life Now sentiment. Again I sewed this to a cream mount. Both these mounts were then roughed up along their edges. I added some brads to the tag, my current favourite embellishment!



Sue Joseph


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Funky Background - Mistakes make us wiser - Sue Joseph


I got a new toy at the weekend, I’d had one as a child and didn’t think they were made anymore!
But they do, only the name is now ‘Art spinner’ not ‘Twirl o paint’. All it is is basically a spinning motor, you attach your card on top and drop your ink/ paint onto it whilst its spinning! Each creation is always different, I’ve made lots lol so watch this space!

So for today’s I used some shimmer paints on neenah card and my fave Visible Image stamp Flower INKognitoIt’s just so bold and grungy I LOVE IT! The superb sentiment I used is ‘Mistakes are good they make us wiser’ from the Sunshine SetBoth stamps are heat embossed in black ebony wow.

It seems to be all about backgrounds at the moment which is ideal for Visible Image stamps 🙂

The paint I used have a gorgeous shimmer on them but unfortunately the camera doesn’t pick it up 🙁

I mounted my card onto black and cerise mirror board which really complements the cerise and black in the design 🙂  I hope you like it and there’ll be lots to follow haha!



Lisa Nygards


2015-09-30 Visible Image stamps - Boys Christmas card - Lisa Nygards 4


Ho Ho Ho! Does anyone know if Aliens celebrate Christmas? I have no idea, but why not? I think this guy from Visible Image wants to, if he just can get some snow! Alien is from the Alien Invader Set, Tree is from Rockin’ Around, and the sentense is from the set White Christmas.

I’ve distressed a piece of kraft cardstock with some brown and green ink. Then I stamped the trees with the same green ink I just used. They are misted with water before stamped. When it was dry I splattered some white and glitter white mists as snow on the piece. Added sequins and bling for snow on the ground and some sequins as ornaments in one of the trees. Finally I stamped the sentense and mounted the red Alien with 3D foam and mounted the piece on a Kraft Card.




HUGE ‘Thank you’s’ to everyone on the team for your amazing work!

Inky Mail Art – Visible Image stamps

Hi There! We are back with another super tutorial for you 🙂

Here’s our US Design Team member Kim Johnny with some awesome mail art!


Hello!


Today I wanted to share a new pair of mail art postcards I made using my favorite Visible Image stamps.



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Inky grungy stamps - Flower - Butterfly - Kim Johnny


Each postcard is just about 4 inches by 6 inches and full of mixed fun!


I used the fabulous Flower INKognito and Butterfly INKognito stamps by Visible Image.



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Inky grungy stamps - Postcards - Kim Johnny



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Inky grungy stamps - Butterfly - Kim Johnny


I stamped Butterfly INKognito onto tissue paper using Ranger Jet Black Archival ink. The background I created using the ARTplorations stencil Old Rose Prints with DecoArt modeling paste and Americana acylic paint.



The back of the post card uses the ‘stem’ from Flower INKognito. The dots, more of my favorites, are from the Plasma set. The background is a mix of water, acrylic paint and dish soap. There are some fun tutorials out there; you make bubbles with this mixture and then dip the paper into it and/or let the bubbles land on it (the most fun way!)



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Inky grungy stamps - Flower - Kim Johnny


The background here was made with DecoArts Fluid acrylics Quinacridone Violet and Titanium White, misted with water and mixed on my craft mat.  The flowers are heat embossed in white.



I added the Flower INKognito stamp and “Listen to your Heart” is from the “This is Me” set.



Thanks so much for coming by today! Hope to see you again soon!

More Awesome Inspiration @ Visible Image

Hi There! We are back as promised with more awesome inspiration for you from our wonderful team..



Susanne Rose has created some fabulous postcards…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - mixed media postcards - Susanne Rose 2

It’s my day today to share some inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I made two mixed media postcards using Neoccolor II pencils and gesso for the background. I used the script stamp from the Revolution set to add some texture. The doodling is made with acrylic markers as well as uniPOSCA markers. It’s always good to have some postcards ready to go! I am a big fan of the Visible Image expression stamps. They are perfect for cards and also for art journalling and they are so true!


Stamps used:

Revolution
Take The Moment
Never Give Up


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - mixed media postcards - Susanne Rose



Doreen OBrien has created a wonderful Christmas card with lots of different elements…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Snowflakes & Butterflies verse - Doreen OBrien

I am back with some more inspiration using the gorgeous Visible Image stamps. I am sharing another  Christmas card using the fabulous “Snowflakes and Butterflies” verse

I have simply stamped this onto some cream card, inked around the edge and attached it to some Frayed Burlap, this was then attached to some red card and my base card. I finished off with a Diecut Fir Tree.


And here’s a fabulous Christmas card from Karen Liddle…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - White Christmas - Snowflakes - Karen Liddle

I used Distress Inks for the background, blended with sponges.  Colours used are Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry.  I also splashed drops of water over the ink and dabbed off, this removes the colour and creates white spots, love doing this.

Stamps used:
Bronte Script and White Christmas



Now for a very funky tag from Kim Johnny…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Imagine - Tag - Kim Johnny 2


Visible Image very recently released some wonderful Holiday stamps and I am feeling lucky to have received some to play with 🙂 I am not quite ready for the Holiday Season, so I have an alternate use for the beautiful 
Sparkle at Christmas set.

I used the bigger sparkle from the Sparkle at Christmas set to frame the “Imagine” focal point badge. Imagine is from the Imagine Dream & Inspire set. Love the sparkle set it is so flexible and can be used so many ways! The stamping and embossing are wonderful as well, makes playtime a breeze! The top of the tag is capped with the Retro Dots Background stamp.



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Imagine - Tag - Kim Johnny

I included and extra photo here to show more of the embossing, I am sooooo hooked on embossing. It adds such a fun and perfect touch. This is also the first time I have used some Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder in Razzleberry Plum. Change the angle and the color of the EP changes too. Awesomeness! Now I need more, many more, colors of Lindy’s 🙂 I had to add some juicy fun dots from the Plasma set in Razzleberry Plum around the edges.



Kim Bacon was also feeling funky this week! With awesome results…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Rockin Around - Christmas Tree - Kim Bacon

Today I have decided to do something a little ‘shocking’ in that I have used some funky colours with jet black shiny embossing powder. Not the usual Christmas colours I know but that is where my crafting session took me!



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Rockin Around - Christmas Tree - Kim Bacon 1

I went with the usual thing, make a lot of background papers using Brusho paints and stamped directly onto them with black embossing powder.



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Rockin Around - Christmas Tree - Kim Bacon 2

Matting and layering with red card and adding a few brads finish the projects off.
Stamps used:
Rockin’ Around
Grunge Polka Dot



Lisa Nygards has a brilliant masculine card for us this week…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Jazz It Up - Lisa Nygards 2

No Christmas cards from me today. I’ve tried to do a more masculine card, even though I’ve used flowers and dolies. *smile* I have used the character from Jazz it Up and the sentense from Thank You set

I stamped the images on a page from an old German book (have no idea what it says), and mounted that on cardstock panels since it’s a bit flimsy as is.



If you love sparkle then you will love Kim Robertson’s card…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Dreaming of a white Christmas - Kim Robertson 2

I love cards like this that have a hand made background using gorgeous stamps and then all the accessories match and make you think the words are perfect which of course they definitely are. I used Momento Grey Flannel Ink and the White Christmas snowflake from the stamp set. I also used Vintage sparkle glitter for this one as I just loved the different colours in it, pinks and greens and white but all very very sparkly and pretty.

We will share Kim’s brilliant tutorial for this card over the next few days!



Teresa Morgan has created 2 completely different, and very fabulous cards using the same Christmas sentiment…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Grunge Flourish - Merry Christmas - Teresa Morgan

I love using kraft card at Christmas – it reminds me of gingerbread! I have paired the Merry Christmas stamp with the gorgeous Grunge Flourish for this first card. Both are stamped with Versamark, and embossed with WOW powders in red and white.



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Grunge Polka Dot - Merry Christmas - Teresa Morgan

My second card is less traditional. I used the Grunge Polkadot background with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and used black embossing powder on the sentiment stamp.

Stamps Used:

Merry Christmas XL
Grunge Flourish
Grunge Polka Dot



Pauline Butcher also shows how non traditional colours work gorgeously with our NEW Christmas stamps…

 

2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Sparkle At Christmas - Pauline Butcher

The stamp set on the first card is called Sparkle at Christmas
 

 

It’s right up my street, as you all know I do love a bit of bling !!!!!

 

Please excuse my photo, I couldn’t seem get a good image for some reason, anyway……. I started off with a shaving foam and Dylusion background, this was a second print, so it was nice a pale. I used the small burst stamp with versamark, and glitter embossing powders in various colours, then added the large burst and the sentiment in a bright blue glitter embossing powder. I decided this wasn’t enough, so I heat embossed them again onto some heat resistant acetate, fussy cut them, then attached them with glue gel. Out came my Stickles for some extra sparkle !!!!
 

 




2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Merry Little Christmas - Pauline Butcher

On my second card, the stamps I used are Merry Little Christmas set, and the small flourish from Revolution.


I made the background with Dylusion Ink sprays, then using the small flourish from the Revolution set, I stamped over it using just water, and flicked some for good measure, lol !!!! I stamped the tree and the sentiment using Black ink, then stamped the tree again in blue. Once dry, I stamped the tree and sentiment again using Versamark, but slightly to the left, to give a shadow effect, then heat embossed in a white glitter embossing powder. Again I decided this was not enough, so I used some dries white glue over the main tree and the word Christmas, with some dry glitter sprinkled over it.



Susanne Rose mixes and older Christmas stamp design with NEW to create an absolute stunner…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Poinsettia stamp - Believe in the Magic of Christmas - Susanne Rose

Again I have a Christmas card for you today. I can’t stop creating Christmas themed projects, but the new Visible Image Stamps are so awesome!

My background is colored with Neocolor II watercolor crayons and the lovely snowflake from the White Christmas stamp set. I stamped it with Memento Luxe matching the background color. The sentiment is stamped with Memento Luxe as well and embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut it with the Silhouette Cameo and the Pix Scan Mat.

I love the Poinsettia!!! I fuzzy cut each stamped flower and build up some 3d poinsettias. The leaves die cut in the background are from Cottage Cutz.

Happy Christmas crafting!

Doreen OBrien has 2 more gorgeous cards to share…


2015-08-30 Visible Image stamps - Just The Way You Are - Doreen OBrien

For this card I first made a background using Distress inks then for a bit of dimension added a couple of background stamps.. Grunge Harlequin  and Bronte Script. Last of all I stamped the Sentiment from the Sunshine Set.



2015-08-30 Visible Image stamps - Merry Christmas - Winter Tree - Doreen OBrien

And for this Christmas card my background has been made with PanPastels while masking off a moon. The Winter Tree and Merry Christmas sentiment have both been clear embossed with Black Versafine ink, and I finished off using some acrylic paint for my snow.



Karen Liddle was in the green zone this week! Gold on green is stunning…


2015-08-30 Visible Image stamps - Imperfection is Beauty - Inky Flower stamp - Karen Liddle


I used Aquatints to colour the background, just one colour brushed over wet water colour card.  I did a couple of brushes across either side, leaving the middle pretty clear, the inks blended nicely in the middle.  I used a stencil for the tiny dots then used Ink Splats stamps around the edges, heat embossed the Flower Inkognito and the  Imperfection is Beauty sentiment stamp.



2015-08-30 Visible Image stamps - White Christmas sentiment - snowflake stamp - Karen Liddle

I made my own stencil for this one, just a square nestie cut through mylar.  I then inked through it with Diestress Ink, and stamped the snowflakes in the same colour.  I heat embossed the sentiment.  Only one stamp set was used which was White Christmas.



And we finish off today’s post with another fabulous funky little number from Kim Johnny…


2015-08-30 Visible Image stamps - Smile Sparkle Shine - Kim Johnny 2

I wanted to share a small project I made using my Visible Image Stamps. Lately I have been having fun making half-page canvas pieces. I love the torn edges that remain when removing it from the spiral book!

The paper is Canson Mixed Media. The flowers are Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die cuts, colored with Derwent Inktense color blocks. The scribbles are made with UniBall Signo pens.



2015-08-30 Visible Image stamps - Smile Sparkle Shine - Kim Johnny 3

I used one of my favorite sentiments, Smile Sparkle Shine from the Express Yourself range for the focal point. I added Grunge Harlequin and Retro Dots background stamps for small touches as well, stamped with Stazon Black.

Lisa Nygards has created 2 fabulous Christmas cards…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Rockin Around - Christmas Tree - Lisa Nygards 1


Guess what? I’ve played with the brand new Christmas stamps from Visible Image this weekend! Whohooo, they are totally amazing if you like to play around with colors, papers, mixed media or whatever. My passion is spray mists and watercolors, so that is what I have for you today!

The ”rockin’ around the christmas tree” card is colored with watercolors on watercolor paper. Randomly picked and brushed on wet paper. When it was dry I splattered a tiny bit of blue on top and then stamped the tree and the sentiment. Since it’s watercolor paper with a pretty rough surface you won’t get the totally black image you’ll get on smooth paper. I think it just adds texture to the piece, but if you want it perfect black – pick a smooth paper! Stamp set is called Rockin’ Around, and you’ll find it HERE!



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Collage stamp - Lisa Nygards


Then I’ve made a pink (!) christmas card. *gasp* But isn’t it kind of cool and pretty? Once again I’ve used watercolor paper, but this time with mists in pink and grey/silver-ish. Let it dry and stamped the beautiful collage stamp ”Christmas Collage” on top. Like the other card, since it’s stamped on water color paper it adds texture to the image since the paper is a bit rough. The big snowflakes are grungeboard that I’ve painted with white gesso and added glitter to. Notice the badge in the middle of the big snowflake? It’s home made, and I’ve stamped the snowflake from the White Christmas set on a pink paper, cutted out in the right size for the badge and put it together. Think it becomes a beautiful center piece.





Now for something rather funky from Kim Robertson…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Grungy Lips - Bite Me - Kim Robertson


So I was playing with my stamps and I remembered the gorgeous lips in the Bite Me set so I decided to have some nice bright lips on a grey background.. electric blue lips would look so good here too but I chose to go for red and glittery!

We will be sharing Kim’s brilliant tutorial for this card over the weekend 🙂




Teresa Morgan has created us two gorgeous Autumnal cards…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Colours of The Wind - Tree Leaf stamp - Teresa Morgan


I have two different projects to share with you today, both using the fabulous Colours Of The Wind stamp set.

The first card uses the leaf stamp to create a beautiful background for one of the new sentiments..
I inked up the leaf stamp with several colours of Distress Inks and stamped randomly on the page before embossing with clear embossing powder. I then applied Peacock Feathers and Black Soot Distress inks over the remainder of the cardstock, wiping away any excess from the leaves (the embossing powder creates a resist). I sprinkled some water over the card to create a splodgy effect!

I coloured another piece of card with Distress inks and stamped the sentiment, then edged this and the background with gold embossing powder.




2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Colours of The Wind - Tree Leaf stamp - Teresa Morgan 1


My second card uses the leaf as the focus..
I used Brushos to create the splodgy background for the leaf, then embossed with gold embossing powder. The bottom layer is coloured with Dylusions spray inks, and I stamped and embossed the sentiment in the corners.




Pauline Butcher has brought our Chandelier Set to life with stunning colour…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Chandelier Set - Stamping inspiration - Pauline Butcher


This is an Anniversary card I made 3 weeks ago, using a fabulous set of stamps from Visible Image, the Chandelier Set

I used a very old technique on this card, I won’t tell you how I did it, as I shall be using it at my next workshop, but it does make your main images pop!




Next we have a gorgeously stylish Christmas card from Susanne Rose…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Rockin Around - Christmas Tree - Susanne Rose


I used the brand new “Rockin’ Around” stamp set from Visible Image for this card. The tree and the sentiment are stamped with Memento Luxe ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. To bring some dimension to my card I added all of my layers with dimensional foam pads.

The tiny trees are cut with a die from Marianne Design. The red background is painted with Neocolor II watercolor crayons. I love this stamp set!!! It’s so modern and very funny!




And now for more gorgeousness from Doreen OBrien…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Take The Moment - Butterfly - Doreen OBrien


I am back  with some inspiration using the gorgeous Visible Image stamps. I have brayered some Acrylic paints onto some tissue then over stamped with Grunge Harlequin.

Using some PVA glue I then attached this to my board before stamping on my sentiment “Take the Moment” and  the “Large Butterfly



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - White Christmas - Snowflake stamp - Doreen OBrien

Next up I have another Christmas card… I inked up the Snowflake from the “White Christmas” set and stamped all over some white card then inked around the edge using the same colour…
I then covered another piece of white card with the distress ink and white embossed the sentiment and edge.This was then attached to the backing using foam pads.



And here are 2 very different but equally fabulous cards from Karen Liddle showing just how versatile our stamps are…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Believe in The Magic of Christmas - Karen Liddle

I inked Distress Ink ‘Evergreen Bough’, through a Memory Box stencil for the panel, and stamped one of the new Christmas Stamps Magic of Christmas



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Inky Horse stamp - Karen Liddle


And for my second card I’ve been playing with Brushos again……. still loving them!

The stamps used for this card is just one set – Revolution




Kim Johnny is loving creating Mail Art at the moment and our stamps are perfect for it…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Inky grungy stamps - Flower - Butterfly - Kim Johnny


Each postcard is just about 4 inches by 6 inches and full of mixed fun!


I used the fabulous Flower INKognito and Butterfly INKognito stamps by Visible Image.


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Inky grungy stamps - Postcards - Kim Johnny


We will be sharing Kim’s tutorial here on our blog over the weekend!



Kim Bacon has played with non traditional Christmas colours with awesome results…


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold - Snowflake - Kim Bacon


I deliberately went colour crazy with these! I just love the hot red which contrasts with the icy cold sentiment and the white embossing powder I used.

I started as I nearly always do by colouring some card with Brusho paint powders made into a liquid paint. A little pinch of powder in a spot of water goes a long way! I painted red, orange and yellow using a broad flat brush.




When this was dry I used the snowflake stamp with a dilute bleach solution first. Once dry I over stamped with a hot pink ink just off centre to make the image look 3D. I then added more snowflakes in red all over the card.


I stamped the sentiment onto a dark red piece of the painted card with white embossing powder before matting and layering with white card.



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold - Snowflakes - Kim Bacon

The turquoise and purple card uses white embossing powder instead of bleach.  I then used 2 shades of turquoise for the other snowflakes.  I distressed the edges of the pieces of card by running my scissors down them and used a pin-wheel to give a faux stitched effect. I also used 2 sizes of white brads in the corners.


If you visit my blog often you will know that I am a frequent user of string! I love adding little knots to break up the long lines of string.




Sticking with non traditional colours, here are two more stunning Christmas cards from Lisa Nygards…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Memories verse - Lisa Nygards 1


Oh, hey, wait…. is that orange? With a touch of turquoise?
Yep! It is, and it is a christmas card!! LOL Why not? Got a crazy feeling of mixing some non traditional christmas colors and I think it become pretty nice! I’ve played with some new and some old Christmas stamps. The orange (cool huh?) card is made with brand new stamps. Snowflake is from the set called White Christmas, and the beautiful verse is called Christmas Memories.

I’ve worked on watercolor paper and just randomly dripped color from mist bottles in orange and turquoise / teal colors. Dryed and dripped again and round up with just mists of water. Continue until you like what you see… not more complicated than that.

I stamped my snowflakes and the verse and then draw a frame (line) around my square of color. Finally I added glitter glue to the snowflakes to have them sparkle.



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Collage stamp - Lisa Nygards 4


For the brownish card I actually used my spray mists as mists! It’s gold and some moss green blended. I dried it with my heat gun and stamped the Christmas Colllage on top. As the paper it’s a bit rough the image will be a bit ”distressed”, just keep that in mind! Finished it up with glitter tape and a button.




And Teresa Morgan shows that traditional ‘silver and white’ give super stunning results too…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Sparkle At Christmas - Teresa Morgan


The sun may be shining but my thoughts are turning to Christmas this week. This superb Sparkle At Christmas stamp set from Visible Image is perfect for a classically elegant card.

I stamped with Versamark ink and used Heat It Up Silver Tinsel embossing powder – I love the glittery bits….so hard to photograph though!




Pauline got funky with stamps and colour for our Mark’s Birthday last week…



2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Man Inkognito - finger print - Pauline Butcher

I’m sharing a card I made recently for Mark Alexander’s Birthday! He is the designer, creator and maker of the awesome Visible Image Stamps.

I used Man INKognito, the script from Revolution, and the finger print stamp from the brilliant Drag & Drip set.


2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Man Inkognito - Pauline Butcher


And using some of the Visible Image sentiment stamps, from various sets, I stamped my own message !!!!

Happy Birthday from the Captain Awesome Set,
Awesome from the Jake Skates Set,
You Rock from the Max Rocks Set,
You’re entirely Bonkers from the Mad Hatter,
and Love You to Bits from the Zombie Brian Set.

I stamped the image onto Neenah cardstock using Ranger Jet Black Archival ink. I love the rich, deep black and it is waterproof.




This is colored with Distress Inks, Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey. I sprinkled water droplets when the base was dry.



07-05-2015 Visible Image stamps - Crow Tree - stamps - Kim Johnny

Don’t Let Your Past Steal Your Future – Visible Image stamps

Good Morning! Hope you are enjoying this week’s inspiration from our awesome Design Team!

It’s Thursday which means it’s Teresa Morgan’s turn to share her latest project with you…



Here we are again for another dose of Thrilling Thursday inspiration – hope you have been enjoying the mini heatwave here in the UK….it’s far too hot for me at the moment but I do like to see a bit of sunshine as it lifts the spirit!!

This week I have decorated a pair of mini framed canvasses using some of the brilliant new word stamps from Visible image.



07-02-2015 Visible Image stamps - Don't Let Your Past Steal Your Future - Mixed Media - Inspirational Quotes - Teresa Morgan


I started by using some modelling paste through a circle mask in the corners to add some texture, then dripped washes of paint down the canvas once the paste was dry. I used some black paint through a chicken wire mask for a bit more detail, then got out my stamps.



Visible Image Stamps


I used black embossing powder on the words and circles (from the Universal set), and gold embossing powder on the Woman Inkognito. A bit of gilding wax on the stencilled circles added more shine! The frames are painted to create an antique brass efect which tied in with the ‘distressed industrial’ feel of this piece.



Visible Image Stamps

 

I love how this turned out and the words are perfect for anybody contemplating a new start in life….

Cracked Background



Visible Image stamps - Me Time - Karen Liddle


For the background on this one, I used the ‘Shaving Foam Technique’, if you haven’t tried it you must, it’s so much fun.  The sentiment is one of the brand new releases, available now here at Visible Image.





I stamped the butterfly twice, once on the card and again on a piece of acetate, which was attached by the body and the wings bent up just a little, and finished of with gems.

Fiery Moments – Visible Image stamps

Hi There! We are back with more awesome inspiration for you 🙂

Here’s Lisa Nygards…

 

Today I’m back with some colors again. Love to play randomly with my mist colors. Not that very often ”misted”, more like dripped and splashed. LOL

The image I’ve used – the dragon – is from Orin Destiny Set. It’s easy to miss that the characters often have totally lovely stamps as accessories. The word stamp is named These are the Moments.

I’ve used an edge scraper around the paper, and then lightly added black from an inkpad. When it all was mounted on the base I put the glitter glue on around the rough edges.

Good Times @ Visible Image

Good Afternoon to you 🙂

It’s time for some more gorgeous inspiration! This time it’s Kim Bacon here with a fabulous new card using some of her favourite Visible Image stamps…

WOW! WOW! and again WOW!
By all accounts the Bosses had a mega time at Ally Pally over the weekend!
Did you go? Did you meet them? What did you buy from the Visible Image stand?
Oh I am soooooo nosey! Maybe you will show us what you make in the Show and Tell soon. yes?


Right, today I have for you a bright little card I made using one of my favourite images, the butterfly. Not the INKognito butterfly that I usually use but the traditional butterfly. In fact I used both the large and the small one on this card.



Visible Image stamps - Good Times - Butterfly - Kim Bacon


I started by simply stamping directly onto a piece of white card with the 2 different colours of dye based stamp pad to create the block background. No stamp, just use the ink pad as the stamp. I left a bit of white space and kept the pressure to a minimum so as not to squish too much ink out from the pad.  Once this was dry I used a very dry brush with white gesso to mute the colours further. Taking the mini dots stamp I then stamped in both colours over the dry gesso. Butterflies were also added in the 2 colours.

 Using Stazon in Dark Cherry and black I stamped a big and a small butterfly onto acetate before cutting them out and sticking them to the card base using a clear silicone glue.


The sentiment was stamped onto another piece of the card in black ink and mounted across the card.



Here is the ‘Stamps I Used’ list and as always just click on the image to link you directly to the Visible Image shop page for that stamp…
