Hi there! We promised you more awesome inspiration so here we are delivering!

Check out this amazing tag by Teresa Morgan…


I have never considered myself to be a ‘girly’ girl, but I fell in love with the Born To Perform stamp set when I first saw it.

Today’s project is a bright and colourful tag using some of the stamps in this set:

I die cut a large tag from black card using my Sizzix Alterations die, then stamped the word ‘Dance’ onto strips of white card using Distress Inks. Once these were trimmed to size I glued them in place then stamped and embossed the ballerina over the top. Some rainbow ribbon completes the project.

Battle Scars

Hi there! We have more gorgeous NEW stamps inspiration for you here on the blog today.

Veerle Moreels has been creating with one of our beautiful new quotes…



Did you see the new stamps Visible Image has released? If you haven’t, you really should go and check them out. As a member of their DT, I was already sent some of these beauties but they are available to pre-order and will be mailed 13th of February so the wait isn’t that long anymore.

I had so much fun creating with the new stamps and my head is filled with a lot more ideas, but that shouldn’t be any surprise when seeing the designs.

For my first project I’m sharing with these new releases I chose for a text stamp to that many of you probably can relate to…

Now I could have just sewed my scar using an needle and thread, but my scars are strong and holding me together.

Halloween Tag – Visible Image

Hello! Thanks for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today. We have a fantastic tag from Elina Strömberg to share with you today…


Hi

Only a week to Halloween! Wow!

Even if Halloween is not such a big thing in Finland I can feel the Halloween excitement rising as my kids are making plans for their Halloween parties. Their joy and eagerness is so contagious.

I haven’t made too many Halloween themed paper crafting projects in the past, but the recent stamp set, ‘Mr Bone Jangles‘ by Visible Image got me inspired. Funny how those skulls and skeletons are at the same time creepy and cute! I used the large skull for a Halloween themed tag:

The size 8 tag base is die-cut twice; once from orange cardstock and once from black texture paper. Before attaching the tags I tore the paper on top and bottom edges, revealing a bit of the orange background after the tags were glued together. While waiting for the glue to dry I dry brushed a hint of white gesso on the black background. A very thin layer of white gesso is always an easy way to highlight the main items.

I stamped the skull on white cardstock and coloured it with grey and yellow markers. After colouring I removed the eye and nose areas with a crafting knife and fuzzy cut the skull out. For creating more dimenstion on the card I pressed the edges of the skull with a stylus, and attached the image on a piece of black cardstock with 3D foam pads.



The little spiders I had bought from a local ‘Tiger’ store that sells fun decoration items for low prices. After gluing them on the tag I brushed some white gesso on them, too.


The tag turned out just the way I wanted. Creepy spooky, but fun!

Learn To Fly Again – Visible Image Stamps

Hello! We’re back (as promised!) with more fabulous inspiration!

Over to Pauline Butcher…

Hi there, 

I’m back again with a tag I’ve made, using an awesome set of Visible Image Stamps. This is one of the brand new designs, that are ready to pre-order now!
 
The set I’ve used on this tag is ‘Learn to Fly Again‘.
 
Visible Image stamps - Learn To Fly Again - Birds and feather stamps - Pauline Butcher

 

I used Distress inks for the background of the tag, the brighter the better, lol, and blended them together. I stamped the birds onto heat resistant acetate, using Versamark, then heat embossed using a gold sparkle embossing powder. I cut the acetate close to the outside birds and attached it to the tag with 3D gel.
 


On a separate piece of card, I stamped the feather in various colours to match the background, and a few in the same gold embossing powder, I then fussy cut them all, then made a nest with some corrugated kraft card and garden twine, and added some gold glitter too.

 

 
The sentiment was stamped onto Kraft card using Versamark, and heat embossed with white embossing powder, and torn around, I added some tacky glue, and some gold glitter to make it pop.
 


Pop over the the webshop and check out all the fantastic new Visible Image designs HERE.
 
Mark and I will be demoing some of them on Create and Craft TV, on Sunday 14th February (Yep, Valentines Day) at 10am. 

Catch the programme on SKY 674, FREEVIEW 36, VIRGIN 748 or FREESAT 813.


See you again soon,
Hugs, Pauline xxxx
