Never Forget You Are Beautiful

Hello! We are back with more wonderful inspiration today. Pauline Butcher made Helen a stunning Birthday card featuring our gorgeous hummingbird stamp, and our spirograph inspired ‘Visometry’ background stamps, and Pauline is here on the blog today to tell you how she made it…


Hi there,

I am back from my wonderful relaxing holiday, the weather just couldn’t have been any better, I just wish I was still there, lol, but life must go on !!!!


It’s time for me to share something I’ve made using some of the awesome Visible Image products. It was Helen’s birthday (Mrs Visible Image) a couple of weeks ago, and this was the card I made her…



 

The stamps I’ve used on this card are…


Life is Beautiful: the hummingbird and the sentiment. I also added in ‘never forget it from the Voices In Your Head stamp set

and some background stamping: I made the flowers from the Visometry set


geometric shapes - background stamps - visible image



the circles from the Shape it Up set


line art - shape background stamps



and also the Strobes Stencil

I started by colouring the card with Mustard Seed Distress ink, then lay the stencil over the top, and blended through it with Picked Raspberry Distress ink. I then stamped the Hummingbird using Versafine Black ink, and randomly stamped the circles using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.

I then stamped the Hummingbird again on a separate piece of card, again using Versafine Black ink, and using Pebeo Dyna paints, with 4 or 5 colours, I painted over the image, shading where it needed to be. When it was dry, I fussy cut it.
 

I stamped out the flowers in different sizes, coloured them in using some Sparkle Pens, then fussy cut them, layering up the sizes using 3D glue gel, to give dimension, and attached them to the card using 3D glue gel, cutting them to fit the card. I then added the painted Hummingbird. I stamped the sentiment onto some painted card, with Versamark, and heat embossed it with Wow Primary Parma Velvet.
 

I am hosting an Inky Workshop in Warwick, on Sunday July 22nd, for more details contact me by email: [email protected]
 



Many thanks for popping in.
Hugs, Pauline xxxx

Happy Birthday Helen!

Hello! Wow isn’t it hot here in the UK at the moment! We really aren’t used to weather like this! I hope you are managing to stay cool somehow. We have loads of fabulous Design Team projects to share with you and we kick off the week with a really gorgeous card, made for me (Helen), by the very lovely Jane Tyrrell featuring our stunning hummingbird stamp…


Happy Monday all…. phew what amazing weather we enjoyed over the weekend, it is like being abroad. The temperatures are set to get even higher this week too! I enjoyed some crafting and gardening time… keeping in the shade after lunch as it got so hot.

Today I can finally share a Birthday card I made for someone very special…. no guesses as to who it is….




Yes none other than the lovely Mrs Visible Image aka Helen. Helen celebrated her special day last week. I made an alcohol ink background using lots of pinks and purples on Yupo paper.


I then stamped the fab Hummingbird stamp from the Life is Beautiful stamp set

I stamped out Helen’s name using alphabetical

and also ‘Happy Birthday’ from the Go to Words stamp set


sentiment stamps - every day - visible image


I cut out the letters and words and added thin satin ribbons. I then added them to my card with foam tape for dimension.



Here are some close ups…

Keep cool and carry on crafting.

Mother’s Day Loveliness

Hello there! Becca Cruger is up on the blog next with a really pretty card with a touch of inkyness…


Hello Bloggy Friends!


Mother’s Day is coming on the horizon and I’m thinking about how to make my mom cry. She had a good deal of that go on in my youth – but these days I try to make her cry for much different reason . Hehe!




So when I got my hands on the Visible Image Mother Definition stamp, I just fell in love because I knew for sure I could make my momma cry.


When I was thinking about the card, the bone china with the bright blue patterns sprang right to mind and I wanted to re-create that feel.




I took the Fibonacci background stamp and inked it up with some bright blue Distress Inks on my Misti. I spritzed it with water from a small bottle, and then stamped.



As you can see, it created this perfectly imperfect background, which I mounted on dark blue cardstock to base it, and then sponged around the outside edges with some brown Distress Oxides.



It’s been awhile since I used paper flowers to create a cohesive design, but in this case, I knew it was just the thing.


After I embossed the sentiment, I added different layers of flowers and gold leaves, sprinkling everything with a layer of Distress Spray Stains.


Products used:


Mother Definition stamp




Fibonacci Background stamp






In the end, I completely adored the card and know it will make some woman very special and happy.


With Warmth,
Becca




What a gorgeous card! Love the flowers against the background.. the fibonacci stamp looks awesome in that spritzed purple ink. Thanks Becca ♡
