Corrie Herriman has been creating some gorgeous Christmas projects…



Hello everyone,

I am sharing 4 projects made with the fabulous “Angels” and “Go To Christmas Words sets”…


A tag on which I have used lace, stitching, thread, paint, rhine stones, inks and embossing powder



A card on a gelli printed background with added Stickles and doodling



Another tag made with Distress Oxide inks, embossing powder and rhine stones. The stars are from the ‘Universal’ set



And my favourite because it is so different, with metal flakes, thread, embossing powder, sequin stars and inks.
I added some snowflakes from the ‘Snow is falling’ set here



I have used the following stamps:

The Greatest Journey Lies Ahead

Hello there! Thanks for popping in today.

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

First up today is Elina Strömberg…

Hi and happy Thursday!

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



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



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

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

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

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

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

Visible Image @ Hobbycrafts show – NEC Birmingham

Hi There! Thanks for coming to visit our blog today.

It’s a quick post this evening as we are doing the final prep for the biggest craft show of the year here in the UK… Hobbycrafts @ the NEC in Birmingham!

It’s been a crazy busy few weeks making, cutting and packaging all the stamps to take to the show, but now that it’s all done we are getting excited for the show and looking forward to seeing lots of you there 🙂 We will have some great offers on our stand, and we also have one of our fabulous Demonstrators, Pauline Butcher, holding ‘Make & Take’ sessions on our stand.

If you would like to come and join in the stamping fun, you’ll need to head over to book in on stand B09 first thing, as places are limited!

Here are the fantastic tags Pauline will be teaching you to create during the Make & Take sessions…

NEC Make & Take Tags - Pauline Butcher

We’ll be creating with inks, glitter and some of our awesome funky Music stamps!

While we are away, our amazing team will still be bringing you their daily inspiration. You can find it over in our Facebook Group or on our Facebook page. And we will catch up with all their wonderful projects here on the blog when we are back next week.

We will also be showcasing the wonderful PINK challenge entries next week too! Thank you to everyone who entered… and to everyone who donated or bought our Stay Strong stamp. Our grand total over on our Just Giving Page for Breast Cancer Care stands at £475.50…. that’s 95% of our target so it’s AMAZING!

Have a great week, and we hope you’ll come and say ‘Hi’ if you are coming to the NEC… you’ll find us on stand B09, the 2nd row from the start! You won’t be able to miss us 😉

Take care,

Mark & Helen xx

A Tag For Every Season – Visible Image Stamps

Good Evening and HELLO weekend! 🙂 We hope you have something exciting planned,
or maybe you are just going to chill out!


We have some fabulous inspiration for you this evening here on the blog from Pauline Butcher…..


Hi there again,
 
I’m back to share 4 Seasonal tags I’ve created, using some fabulous Visible Image Stamps.



Visible Image stamps - Winter Tree stamp - 4 seasons tags - sentiment stamps - Pauline Butcher


On all the tags I used 2 stamps……. ‘Winter Tree’ and ‘Tall Grass’, and just changed the sentiment.


The sentiment on the Winter tag is from the ……. ‘Sparkle at Christmas’ set.
On the Spring tag it’s…….’Memories’ from the ‘Make me Smile’ set.
On the Summer tag it’s……. ‘Dream’ from the ‘Imagine, Dream, Inspire’ set.
The last one is the Autumn tag and the sentiment is……. ‘Colours of the Wind’.
 
I blended Distress Inks for the background of each tag, and stamped the Tree and the sentiments in Black Versafine ink, the grass was stamped in Distress inks. I added blossom using acrylic paints, the winter tag is achieved using a ‘dries white glue’ and glitter for the snow, and I used stickles on all the tags for the finishing touch.
