Time Waits For No Man

Hello! We hope you are having a great weekend!

Corrie Herriman is here on the blog today with her latest Design Team project…


Hello everyone,

I have an art journal page to share today using the lovely new stamps by Visible Image. I love the alphabet stamps, there are more than one of certain letters so that makes is easy to stamp words like ‘happy’ etc. I stamped them a little wonky but you can line them up really well.



I used a mop up page from my gelli print stack. I really like these; sometimes they are even nicer than the proper prints.

I added some background stamping using Archival ink and the pink clocks were heat embossed with pink embossing powder by WOW.




The letters are stamped on white paper, I then added the circles around them. There is a circle and a square in the set and the letters fit in there perfectly. I used a punch to cut them out.




I like my words to be wonky so I stamped them wonky on purpose. I added some white dots with a white pen.


That was it from me today ! You also still have time to play in our monthly challenge where the theme is ‘Dimension’. I have put my letters spelling ‘time’ on dimensional tape so they stand out more.



I used all three new stamp sets for this page:


Ahead of our Time




Somewhere in Time




Alphabetical




Fantastic page Corrie and love your caption! ♡

You will find more of Corrie’s fantastic cards and projects over on her blog.



Our alphabet stamp set is brilliant… one for your wish list for sure! 😉

The Name is Bond…

Hi there! We are back with our final post for today and it’s an amazing card by Dot Leathbridge…


I’m here with a fun card that I’ve made using all three of the NEW stamp sets from Visible Image.

Every time I looked at the sets I kept on seeing James Bond.  So that was the beginning of this card.  ‘James’ (from ‘Ahead Of Our Time’) is made using distress oxides and my Misti to create an interesting take on the gentleman silhouette.  The background is created using more distress oxides…





How awesome is the Alphabetical set of stamps though!  You can write absolutely ANYTHING with them.  There is no limit to what words you can make…





If you look closely you can also see the OO7 numbers scattered around the base of James…



And the large splat from the ‘Somewhere In Time’ set was used to create a border and to add some numbers to the background.

Just the edge of the spat in this set was used.  What I like is that you can use a little, or lot, of the splat to create a border.


Somewhere In Time




Ahead Of Our Time




Time Spirals

Good Morning! (or afternoon/evening!)

We have 3 amazing Design Team projects to share with you today, first up is an awesome MDF Monolith by Veerle Moreels…



When you first see new released stamps all those ideas start spinning around in your head. Especially when seeing all these lovely words in the ‘Somewhere in time’ set. I’m a sucker for word…and have a soft spot for strong words.




And one of the first ideas when seeing the clock in ‘Ahead of our Time’ was this… trying to create a fossil look. As the shape of this clock immediately reminded me of that shape of old fossilized shells.




To get the word time to pop up I stamped it onto paper and fussy cut them out. Another layer of texture ^.^ Remember the June challenge over at Visible Image is called ‘dimension’ …you can still join in for your chance of winning a £40 coupon!




The complete project was made onto a monolith so I can put this little reminder out to see every day. Now to figure out what to put on the back ^.^

Past – Present – Future

Hi there! Thanks so much for coming to check out today’s inspiration here on the Visible Image blog!

We mentioned yesterday that Veerle has now got her hands on our NEW stamps, so here is her very first project with them…



I am here with some inspiration for this month’s DIMENSION challenge here at Visible Image. Today I’m only using paper, some metal wire and a bit of gaze to add my structure…




I stamped both words (past and future) and my sentiment on some thicker paper, cut it out to glue it back on again. Might sound a bit silly but it does help to create some depth 😉

To put my word Future in the spotlight I layered it on top of a gear diecut ( two layers of 300 gsm watercolor paper) To ground this element I have put some bandage underneath that was secured again with some metal wire as I did with my sentiment




Yes, my future is looking very bright with this golden watercolors ^.^




Now…this is just a first project with the new stamps Visible Image will be releasing on June 9th. Loads more to come as I have so many ideas in my head. You should CHECK THEM OUT as they open so many possibilities. Just go and read all those beautiful words…<3

It’s Time

Hello there! We are back with more awesome inspiration for you… a little later than planned sorry but better late than never!!!

Nicky Gilburt has been creating with some of our brilliant NEW stamps…



I’m so excited to share my first make with the amazing new set from Visible Image called ‘Somewhere in Time.


These stamps are launching on Create and Craft TV this Friday, June 9th! It’s going to be an awesome weekend!



 
 


For this 7×5″ card I started with an A6 piece of white, stamped the smashed pocket watch and then masked off the whole thing with Pebeo Drawing Gum. Once I had allowed this to dry I went crazy with colour – Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Carved Punpkin, adding detail to the background and some coiled springs in black to the foreground. Then I simply rubbed off the gum and added a hint of colour to the workings behind the watch face.
 

I also prepared the base card too, but only the inch around the edge, as once the design is mounted, that’s all there is to see!




The designs and words in this set are amazing, I am going to investigate more with different phrases, as there are so many ways to work with them, and indeed the other two NEW sets! Get your orders in as NEW Visible Image releases are notoriously popular and have sold out time and again on Create and Craft!





Happy Crafting

Nicky x

You Can’t Turn Back The Clock

Hello! We are back, as promised, with more brilliant inspiration for you!

Pauline Butcher has combined 2 of our NEW sets which of course work so well together…

Hi there,
 
Well, I managed to get my hands on the brand new stamp designs from Visible Image, and had a very quick play, they are rather awesome.
 



 



The stamps I’ve used are…


The cogs and sentiment from Somewhere in Time





and the fabulous man is from Ahead of our Time


 


I achieved the background by brayering some very florescent green and Pink paint, dried it with my heat tool, then I stamped the cogs using Black Archival ink. I stamped the man and sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed them using a green florescent embossing powder.



Thanks for visiting, 
hugs Pauline xxxx
