Take Your Broken Wings

Hello there! Helen here with my latest card!

Hope you had a good weekend.

I have been busy creating some backgrounds ready for some of our NEW stamps! Had lots of fun with brushos, Lindy’s sprays and Dylusions paints!

I decided to use some existing stamps on one of them though, as it was calling out to me for our awesome moth stamp…
I used turquoise, yellow and red brushos for this one, and once dry I added some more water
and a touch more paint along the top, allowing it to run down my card


I stamped and embossed the large moth, and then stamped two
of the small silhouette moths in black versafine


I also stamped and embossed my chosen quote to make sure it stood out against the background


I added a glow around parts of the moth using diluted white paint, to make it stand out more
and splattered some of the paint over my card


Using some of the excess card from my background, I stamped and
embossed another large moth

IMG_2299 (1)

I coloured in the skull using a white pen then layered it on top of my original moth
using some foam pads for some extra dimension


Lastly I flicked some black Lindy’s spray here and there, then matted onto black card
before adhering to my white card blank

Tweedles in Wonderland

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

Are you enjoying our NEW stamps previews? #7 will be along a little later.

First of all we have some more fabulous inspiration to share with you, so we will pass you over to our Australian DT member Dot Leathbridge…

Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee have caught my eye at Visible Image this fortnight.

The stamp set has one tweedle on it, but if you white out the pupils of the eyes and redraw them with black fine liner, then you have them both!

2017-01-18 Visible Image - stamps - Tweedledum - character - Dot Leathbridge

Finally I overcame my ‘fear’ of using the gelli plate and had heaps of fun creating some backgrounds.  The background behind the background was an off-cut of one of these.  I don’t know what I was so afraid of!

The tweedles were easy to colour in and easy to cut out! Love that!

I have been adding to my stock and now have quite a good range of Visible Image stamps for sale in Australia….so, exciting times ahead.


Thanks Dot! What an awesome card! Love love loving that background ♡  Looking forward to seeing more of your gelli plate creations! You will find more of Dot’s gorgeous projects over on her blog, along with her contact details.

All our current character stamps are sadly retiring, so if you want to get your hands on them you need to be quick! They have over 30% OFF right now!

You will find them in our Retiring Stamps section along with some other fantastic designs! Sadly the Cheshire Cat has already sold out…

The Ripple Effect

Good morning! Or maybe it’s afternoon or evening where you are! Thank you so much for visiting our blog today.

Teresa Morgan is here with some awesome inspiration for you…

Welcome back to today’s Thrilling Thursday post for Visible Image stamps. Today I am sharing the project I created for the January issue of Craft Stamper magazine – a gorgeous canvas!

2017-01-12 Visible Image - ripple effect stamp - canvas - Teresa Morgan

I used a 12 inch square black canvas – if you can’t get a black one, then just paint a white one with black gesso or acrylic paint and allow to dry.I stamped the ripples in a diagonal design across the canvas using Versamark ink so I could emboss with metallic embossing powders. Don’t worry if your stamped images aren’t perfect – canvas is textured and can be tricky to get a clean image. A lot will be covered once the canvas is finished.

Visible Image Stamps - The Ripple Effect, Tomorrow Doesn't Exist, wall art, canvas

I took some black card and stamped and embossed several sets of ripples before cutting the different rings apart with a sharp craft knife. These are attached with Pinflair glue gel to create a dimensional effect.

Finally I stamped and embossed the sentiment on black card, cut apart and attached with glue gel before setting aside to dry.

Love you – Visible Image

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

We have a stunning card to share with you today, which also has a brilliant video tutorial, created by Veerle Moreels…

It’s my turn to share a project here at Visible Image and would like to share some Inktense Visble image love ^.^  I loved combining the Visible Image stamps together this way. And I tried out the inktense colorpencils for the very first time on this card.

Curious on how I brought the 3 stamps together and how I used the pencils? I have put it all in this liddle video tutorial for you…

I’m pretty sure you will see more cards like these show up.  Maybe even recognize part of it in my Christmas cards ( I really have to get started I know 👀 ) But for now it’s this one…as we can never say “I love you” enough.

Still sparkling despite the rain – Visible Image

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today!

We have lots of inspiration to share with you today… catching up with all the fabulous cards and projects our amazing team have been creating.

Here’s Pauline who loves a bit of sparkle…

I hope you are all well, and as there has been rather a lot of rain lately, I thought that my ‘Visible Image Stamps’ inspiration this week, should emulate the weather, lol, so I used their awesome Sparkle in the Rain’ stamp set.


I started off with a piece of A4 white card, and gave it a spray with a Purple and a Lemon ‘Starbust’ spray ink, from Lindy’s Stamp Gang, super vibrant colours which are full of lovely mica, making a fabulous glimmer. I then cut my card, to fit a 6″ card blank. I used the rain stamp and the puddle stamp with some versamark, and heat embossed with some ‘Sparkling Snow’ powder, by Wow.
On some heat resistant acetate, using Versamark, some Black Wow Embossing powder, and the Lady Stamp, I heat embossed, and fussy cut it, adding yellow Stickles to her Umbrella and her boots.


On some more white card, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, fussy cut it, then coloured it with some Distress Inks.
Still a couple of weeks to enter the ‘Show & tell’, for a chance to win a £25 voucher, to spend on luscious new Visible Image goodies.
Take a peek in the Visible Image Group too, there is daily inspiration from the DT, and members too……HERE.
Thanks for popping in, hugs Pauline xxxx

Love this card Pauline! ♡ Gorgeous background and the new rain and puddles stamps are so cool!

News & 25% OFF code @ Visible Image

Hi there!

Thank you for taking time to visit our blog today.

As you may know, we have recently re-branded and we’re loving our ‘new look’ colourful packaging…


We have now stopped manufacturing the stamps ourselves but we continue to package them all in house,
and everything is still designed by Mark.

As quality is always top of our list, the etching is the deepest possible for clear photopolymer stamps,
so as always they stamp beautifully.

We had struggled to keep up with the demand for our stamps with just Mark making them,
and the waiting time for orders was long. 

So we are very happy to announce that orders placed by 2pm Monday to Friday
will now be dispatched the same day!

Our stamp sets are now larger in size so we have been busy designing additional stamps
to compliment our existing sets…

You will find ALL our current designs HERE!

Sadly due to family commitments we aren’t at the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC this year.
We will really miss seeing all our regular customers at the show.

But… to celebrate our ‘new look’ we are giving you 25% OFF our stamps!*

Just enter coupon code: newlook2016
at the checkout!

*offer ends midnight UK time on Sunday November 6th

Thanks again for taking time to read about all our changes. We have lots of exciting plans for the next year!

Have a great weekend.

Mark and Helen xx



Glimmer of Light – Visible Image

Hello 🙂 Thanks for visiting our blog!

Susanne Rose is here with a fantastic tutorial today…

Hi everyone!

Today I’d like to share some spooky Artist Trading Cards with the awesome Visible Image “Glimmer Of Light” stamp set. I also have the step by step instructions for you:

An ATC is a card that measures 2.5″ by 3.5″. I cut two from a Brusho background.

I used my square mini Gelli Plate to add some texture. I used the mini Honeycomb Delight stencil by STAMPlorations plus “Wedding Cake” paint from Martha Stewart. I stamped the sentiment, which comes with the Visible Image stamp set, randomly on top. Just to create more texture.

Í stamped the main image – the death’s-head hawkmoth – on my cards and also onto some white cardstock.

I used Distress Inks to color the moths.

I adhered the butterflies after I stamped the light. I stamped the light on white cardstock and adhered it, too.

I inked the edges with Distress Ink “Black Soot”.

For a special finish, I used some silver embossing paste and scribbled it all arround the edges.


Thank you for stopping by today.

It’s all pretty crazy here at the moment… it’s official, you are LOVING our new stamps and our Monoliths! We have received so many orders… thank you so so much! We are working around the clock to get as many pre-orders dispatched as possible this week, now that our NEW designs have been released.

Another make using the amazing and unique VISIBLE IMAGE STAMPS ….. I can’t imagine my days without them ….. I LOVE them 😀

The dark nights are creeping in, the smell and colours of autumn are in abundance, which has inspired me for todays make…

For my background I used oranges and blues dylusion inks.

For all the stamps I used wow metallic golds and coppers and some little acorns acquired a while ago but never used until now, but perfect for this scene.
