Reveal Your True Colours

Hi there! We hope you’re having a good Sunday.

We’re really excited to share the very first post by Josefine Fouarge…

Today I’m sharing my first project for the Visible Image design team and I’m showing you a few monoprinting techniques. Of course I’ll also finish the tags up 🙂

Visible Image is a great company. If you haven’t seen them yet, you have to check them out. It’s exactly my style and I’m in love with all the silhouette stamps and fun sentiments. It’s super easy to create stunning mixed media projects with them. So lets get started with mine 🙂

I used my Gel Press for the monoprinting techniques. For the first layer I mixed a couple of acrylic paints on my Gel Press and transferred the paint directly onto the tag. Whereas for the second layer I put a stencil between the tag and the monoprinting surface.

You can see the process in my quick video here:

Good Evening! We have an incredibly sparkly first project from Lisa Taggart here on the blog this evening…

Well today is an exciting day! I begin my journey using the inspirational products from Visible Image. What better way to start than with a bang!-it is the month of  fireworks after all!

The project is an A4 canvas and to create the firework effect I used:


The products links are below:


Time Tunnel

Rays of Light

How it was done:

line an A4 canvas with Sheena stamping card. Take the stencils and randomly spray sections of the canvas using coloured ink sprays . I used distress ink sprays.


Next using the dark blue spray darken the top and bottom of the canvas to create a night sky effect. Take the large stamp and stamp the image a few times in a couple of colours on top. To highlight the stencilled shapes go over some areas again using pink and purple distress oxide ink. It’s a good ink for adding light chalky layers.

Then comes the fun bit! When the background is dry cover with an anti static powder and select a range of different colour glitter embossing powders. I used wow powders. Using all the stamps stamp in different colours and sizes with the main area towards the top to create that popping firework effect.



Finally darken around the edges with dark blue and black ink so the centre of the canvas becomes the focal point. Ink a rectangle of card in complimentary colours and heat emboss the sentiment in black glitter powder. I also made this more sparkly using diamond stickles on top.



It was a lot of fun. Have a go. The stamps and stencils were super easy to use!

Till next time..

Lisa xx

Wow! Such a striking piece! The sparkle is incredible!
Thank you Lisa ♡

Create With Your Soul

Hello there! Thanks for coming to visit our blog today!

It’s Helen here today sharing a card I made as inspiration for this month’s challenge over in our Facebook group.

The theme this month is ‘Express Yourself’… creating a card, tag, mixed media project or journal page which has words as the focal point!

Here is my card..

I chose a favourite stamp, some zesty colours, and started to build my background…

I sprinkled some yellow and orange brushos then spritzed with water, adding more powder here and there for intensity

I randomly stamped the awesome inky script from our ‘Scripted Streets’ set using distress inks in the same colours

Next I stamped some of the brilliant circles from our ‘Universal’ set in lime green, then splattered some diluted white paint.

I embossed the quote using fluorescent orange, and highlighted the 3 main words with a black micron pen

I stamped and cut out some of the flowers from our ‘Create it’ set and coloured them with inks and paint splatters,
adhered them to my card with glue gel before adding a blob of paint to the centres!

It was a lovely sunny day so I sat my card on the patio outside our studio!

Stamps Used:

Create With Your Soul

Scripted Streets


Create it!

I hope you will join in with this month’s challenge…

In Bold Colour

Hi there! We are back as promised with gorgeous inspiration from Teresa Morgan this evening…

This week I have another of the cards I created for the Create and Craft sellout show.

This one uses the beautiful Visometry set along with a really cool sentiment.

My background was created using some soft pastel colours of Distress Oxides,
I then stamped the Visometry stamp with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

I love how you can align these stamps to join them together and stamp larger designs.

The sentiment is embossed with a deep pink embossing powder which is transparent,
allowing the colours underneath to affect the tones – it’s a nice effect which works well with these words.

Thanks to all of you who tuned in to watch the show and make it the massive success that it was.

Don’t forget to check out the links below – from next month we will be adding a themed challenge
to the Facebook group as well as our regular Show and Tell!

Stamps Used:

What a stunning card, love the pastels of the oxides with that white embossing ♡  Thanks Teresa!

Aren’t our Visometry stamps just so awesome!

Love Believe Create

Hi! Thank you for visiting our blog today.

We are back with more gorgeous inspiration ahead of our Create and Craft TV show this Saturday! More details at the end of this post.

Teresa Morgan has an amazing card to share with you…

This week I have been playing with my Distress Oxide inks to create a fabulous background for this beautiful sentiment stamp from Visible Image.

I applied different colours of Distress Oxide inks to my card base, spritzing with water then heat dryin before adding another colour. I continued until I was happy with the result then stamped the dotted circles also using Distress Oxides.

The doodled circles are stamped with Jet Black Archival ink, and the sentiment is stamped with Versamark and embossed in black.

I love how the Distress Oxide colours sit on top of each other – it makes for some fun contrasting patterns.

Stamps Used:



Create With Your Soul


We absolutely adore this card! Teresa is creating some amazing things with the oxides!

And these stamps were made for this sort of background.. a perfect combination! Thank you Teresa! ♡

You may remember my YouTube video a while back, using stamps with my Gelli plate to create fun backgrounds.

Well, this week I have teamed one of them with some brilliant word stamps from Visible Image:

I used DecoArt Media Fluid acrylics for the print, then stamped the words with Versamark ink
and embossed with black and white WOW Powders.

Visible Image stamps - Gelli print

I added some white highlights to the ‘Create Yourself’ with a gel pen.

I love the slightly grungy feel to this card and the fact that it is totally unique – I could never repeat the background exactly.

It’s Good To Be Different

Hi there! Thanks for dropping by 🙂

Corrie Herriman is here with some awesome inspiration for you today…

Hello everyone,

For today’s post for Visible Image I have made a card.

2017-01-17 Visible Image stamps - Cheshire Cat - circles - dare to be different - Corrie Herriman


I used a gelli printed background. I think this one was from mopping up leftover paints from the plate. I added the white circles by stamping with VersaMark and white embossing. I also added some black splatters by diluting black acrylic paint with water and using a round paintbrush to splatter; I just tap it onto another brush or pen to make the paint come out in splatters.


I then stamped the sentiment and stamped the cat on top of it. This is really easy as the stamps are clear and you can see what you are doing. I then stamped the cat again on white card stock and coloured her (I added eyelashes to make her a girl) with Copic Markers, cut her out and adhered her on top of the one on the card. I then glued the panel onto a white card base.


I used the following stamps:



Dare to be Different



And of course: Cheshire Cat which has been so popular it has sold out!

Visometry @ Visible Image

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog today.

Pauline Butcher is here with some superb inspiration for you…


It’s Fabulous Friday, and my day to share a project I’ve created, using some of the awesome Visible Image stamps.

2017-01-13 Visible Image stamps - Visometry - spirograph stamp - inspire - Pauline Butcher

The stamps I’ve used on this card are…

The flowers : large and medium sizes of  Flowers shapes from Visometry,
The stamps on the background, and at the bottom are from De-Stressed,
 again on the background I used some Ink Splats,
 the sentiment is from Imagine, Dream, Inspire,
and the butterfly is from Own kind of Beautiful.
For the background, I put some Picked Raspberry & Wilted Violet distress inks onto a glass mat, spritzed them with water, and squidged my card into them, I did this 2 or 3 times, drying the card in-between to stop it going muddy. when this was all dry, with my distress tool, I added a touch of Squeezed lemonade DI to the edges, and a bit in the middle. Next, I stamped using the dots and Mustard Seed DI, and some of the ink splats using purple Starlight paint.

On a piece of black card, I stamped all the flowers, (6 small 1 large) using Versamark, and then heat embossed using Pink and Purple embossing powder from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. I fussy cut them out and thn decided to add a white medium flower to the centre of the large one.

I also added some Stardust Stickles to the flowers.

I stamped the Butterfly again using Versamark, and heat embossed it using a Black embossing powder, coloured it using Distress inks, and fussy cut it. The stems of the flowers are drawn using a Yellow Sharpie pen.

Thanks for visiting, hugs, Pauline xxxxx

Awesome card Pauline thank you! Fabulous background, love the colours and all that dimension! ♡

Hello! Thanks for stopping by our blog!

Today’s inspiration comes from me.. Helen! If you missed my post earlier this week you’ll know that I am embarking on my own personal ‘inky journey’ this year. I hadn’t crafted since I was a child, and having only made a few cards and tags over the past 5 years (since meeting Mark), I have much to learn! Writing is my passion, words are my ‘thing’, so I’m really excited to see where this year takes me, now that I have a bit more time to be creative and messy!

I wanted to get the brushos out as I just love the randomness of them.. you never know what your background will look like and it’s so much fun experimenting! I prefer to sprinkle first then spritz with water, and then add more powder in places to get a deeper effect. My card was really wet so that I could hold it up and let the paint run.


I just love the black so had to add some of that!

Once dry I chose my favourite part and cut it to size to fit one of our MDF Monoliths, so that I could create a piece of home decor rather than a card.


Next was to decide which stamps to use, as I have so many favourites at the moment!!! I decided the background looked quite dreamy so chose this set…


I randomly stamped the dotty circle from our Universal set in first and second generation stamping, using Wilted Violet Distress Ink. Then stamped and embossed the gorgeous sentiment and dreamcatcher using stampendous detail black. I distressed all around the edges of my card with black soot.

I then splattered some black and white dylusions paint, and added some colour to the dreamcatcher using distress inks, and last of all added some sparkle with a quickie glue pen and some fine glitter.


I had originally painted my Monolith white but I didn’t feel it looked right, so had a last minute change of plan and gave it a coat of gorgeous purple!


I think it turned out quite well! My very first Monolith! What do you think?

While I was waiting for paint to dry I used some of my ‘practice’ brushos background to make a matching card.


I randomly stamped some more of the awesome background stamps from our Universal set using a few different colours, I think they work perfectly with brushos! I wanted to keep the dreams theme so stamped and embossed one of my favourite Visible Image sentiment stamps in black..


And again randomly splattered some white dylusions paint.

I distressed the edges of the card with black soot to give it more depth, before mounting on my card blank.


I really love how it turned out and how incredibly quick it was to make!

So here they are together..


You will find all these stamps and our MDF Monoliths over in our shop:

Visible Image Debut – Elina Strömberg

Hello 🙂 We are back with our second inspirational project today!

Very excited to be sharing Elina’s debut post as a Visible Image Design Team member…

Hi and Happy Wednesday!

I’m so excited to reveal my first projects as a design team member of Visible Image. I want to thank Helen and Mark, the lovely owners of Visible Image, for this opportunity- working in this talented team is a great honour!

Every other Wednesday I will be showing a new project I have made using Visible Image stamps. I hope will like my creations!

I thought I would start with a little mixed media project; two tags with pink, white and black colours:

 2016-01-27 Visible Image stamps - Imagine - Inspire - Inky Woman - Elina

I started with painting the tags with white gesso. Manila tags do allow you to use wet media, but a thin layer of gesso still makes the surface easier to work with. In addition, gesso is great for creating texture: I was using a large, wide brush, so once the gesso was dry the tags were covered with fine brush mark lines. Cool!

For colouring the tags I used my favourite watercolour media; water-soluable Neocolor II crayons. I coloured the tags leaving some spots white, and blended the crayons with water. To mute down the colours I brayered a thin layer of gesso on top, and once all the layers were dry I was ready to decorate the backgrounds with stamping!

Usually when decorating a background with stamping I don’t mount the stamp on an acrylic block. Creating random patterns by bending the stamp is much easier with a non-mounted stamp. However, this time I wanted to stamp with acrylic paints, and spreading just a thin layer of paint on the stamp was so much easier when the stamp was firmly on the acrylic block.

Remember when stamping with acrylic paints, gesso or gel medium always to clean your stamps right after stamping. I’m not too good at cleaning my stamps, but I never leave acrylic paint on my stamps. If the paint dries on the stamp you will not get it off and your stamp is ruined! For cleaning my stamps I like to use a very soft toothbrush; it cleans the stamp properly but yet very gently.

The black heat embossed faces were stamped using the mirroring image stamping technique. I stamped the mirrored image on fun foam and was surprised how well that worked. There’s no need to stamp on the back of my stamps anymore!

For the second tag I used the same ‘Woman INKognito’ stamp again, but as the main background colour was black/grey, I covered the image with purple embossing powder instead of black.

The lovely quotes are from a stamp set called ‘Imagine Dream Inspire’. I’m sure this set will be used for many projects in the future, it’s so versatile!

Create Your Future @ Visible Image

Good Morning! We are here with more fantastic inspiration for you here on the Visible Image blog today 🙂

Over to Katy…

Visible Image stamps - create you future - scribbled circles -tag card - Katy Leitch

Today’s make for Visible Image is a clean and simple tag card. I’m often asked what I do with the tags I create and they make great cards – simply cut another tag, fold a small flap at the top and adhere the flap to the back of the decorated tag to allow it to stand.

 Visible Image stamps - create you future - scribbled circles - Katy Leitch

I stamped the overlapping circles in black Archival then coloured each one with Distress Ink – I used Twisted Citron, Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistachio. I stamped a splat in black inside each circle to add detail. I stamped the words and cut them out individually before mounting to the card on 3D foam pads. I matted the tag onto black card and created a back as described above to allow it to stand.

This card really highlights how brilliantly words can work as a focal point when combined with abstract or background images. Hope you like it!

Warm wishes,
Katy x

I used these stamps on my card:

Create Your Future


Ink Splats

Awesome tag! Really cool and funky! Thank you Katy ♡

We will be back later with the debut post from Elina Strömberg!

AND we cannot wait to share today’s NEW stamps preview too!!!

Have a great day.

Listen To Your Heart – Visible Image stamps

Hi there, we hope you are having a nice relaxing Sunday 🙂

We are having a busy day here at the office… with our next Create and Craft TV show 3 weeks today, and the UK trade show the week after there is much to do!!! Especially with the HUGE number of new releases we have planned! All very exciting indeed.

Today’s inspiration comes from our US Design Team member Kim Johnny. Over to Kim…


Welcome back to my first post of 2016 for Visible Image, yay!

I started off with a tag shape and I fully intended for it to be a tag with ribbon and all….but it sort of stayed as a small canvas. I am happy with the bright result, hope you like it!

The base of my tag is heavy watercolor paper. I chose to use the smooth side, for me it makes a better stamped impression. I stamped the PlasmaInk Splats and Retro Dots Background stamps in clear, bright white and red embossing powders before anything else.

Visible Image stamps - Listen To Your Heart - Kim Johnny

When I start a project, I rarely know where I am going with it. I mean I have an idea, tag, canvas, ATC but I never know where I am going to end up. With this one, I had a moment of panic and almost tossed it aside. The red plasma was so opposite against all the white I wasn’t sure what to do. I let it sit….and sit….and finally came back (days) later to attempt to complete it.

For the background I used Nuance water soluble powdered dye available here. I love the bright intense colors they create. The embossing acts a wonderful resist. Once I got the warm colors on the paper, I felt much better!

For the focal point I used one of my favorite sentiments, “Listen to your Heart” from the “This is Me” stamp set. I think I just need to remember to listen to my heart more and shut the nagging brain voices down, what do you think?

Thanks so  much for stopping by today!
hugs ‘n peace,

This is awesome Kim! So bright and funky… really cheerful on this cold day! Thank you… and you should definitely listen to your heart more ♡

We will be back a little later with another preview from our February release 🙂

Smile Sparkle Shine – Winter Mannequin

Hello and thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today.

We will pass you straight over to Teresa who has a very warm welcome for you…

Welcome back to a new year of Visible Image inspiration!! I can’t wait to share new stamps and projects with you all – 2016 is going to be full of exciting new designs and products. Today I am sharing a mixed media piece that I made for the January issue of Craft Stamper magazine

Visible Image stamps - Mannequin - Mixed Media - Teresa Morgan

I used a paper mache torso mounted on a wooden spool and coaster for the base. A couple of coats of gesso prepared them for decorating. I used DecoArt modelling paste and a burlap stencil to add texture to areas of the torso. DecoArt Crackle paint and antiquing cream was applied to the stand.

I used the Universal set of stamps to add pattern to the torso, embossing with WOW embossing powder in white, pink and silver. Blue mica spray added extra colour.

Visible Image stamps - Mannequin - Mixed Media - Teresa Morgan 2

The sentiment is stamped and embossed onto tissue paper before being glued in place with Mod Podge. I added silver Stickles and blue gilding wax for extra sparkle and shine. Some pretty floral trim adds the final decorative touch.

Sparkly Lips Canvas – Visible Image Stamps

Good Morning and Happy Saturday to you!

Sorry we missed yesterday’s post but it was a crazy busy day! We didn’t manage to get everything finished as planned, so today will now be our last day in work before we wind down and get into ‘Wedding mode’ !!! Getting very excited now… just 6 days to go before the big day ♥ ♥ ♥

So here on the blog today we have triple inspiration for you from Pauline, Susanne and Doreen.

First up, here’s Pauline with her latest Visible Image stamps project…

Hi there,

 It’s me, back again, spreading some Visible Image love, superb deeply etched photo-polymer uniquely designed Stamps, which I love to use, can you tell.. lol !!!

2015-08-01 Visible Image stamps - Smile Sparkle Shine - Mixed Media Canvas - Grungy Lips stamp - Pauline Butcher

The very unique stamps I’ve used for this project are……
The lips from Bite meSmile, Sparkle, ShineRipped FishnetInk Splats, and the straight stamp from Edgy.
This week, just for a change, I’ve used a 5″ x 7″ canvas, which I primed with 2 coats of white Gesso. Whilst that was drying, I stamped my main images, the lips and the sentiment, onto some heat resistant acetate, using versamark, and heat embossed them with some pink sparkle embossing powder and fussy cut.

Right, back to the canvas, I added some grunge paste through a stencil, and dried with my heat tool.

I spritzed it all with water, and sprinkled Brusho paints onto it, spritzed with water again, and then let it all drip down. I also mixed some red Brusho with water, and let that drip down too.

Using some gold paint on the Ripped Fishnet and Edgy stamps, I stamped randomly over the canvas. I found an old jar of white ink in one of my drawers, which had gone very thick, but it was perfect for the white drips and circles !!! I edged the canvas with gilding flake, then glued the lips and sentiment into place, and lastly added Stickles for more sparkle.

Background Stamping Technique – Visible Image

Good Morning and Happy Friday!

We have loads of fabulous inspiration for you today here on the Visible Image blog 🙂

Here’s Kim Robertson with a great background stamping tutorial…

Hi my lovelies

Hope you are all well and enjoying the warm weather, It is so nice to walk into work with the sun shining and the feeling of warmth on your skin isn’t it. No coats and brollies Haha.

I have a little card today created with just one back ground stamp and two sentiments to keep it simple and show you how you can layer again on the backing and then let the gorgeous sentiments speak for themselves.

Here is today’s card

Retro Dot Background - Time To Be Happy - Kim Robertson

So lets get started on how to put this one together. It is of a fairly easy level so can be put together quite quickly if you needed to.

To start I stamped with embossing ink and the Retro dots Background hand held not on a block and randomly stamped around the edges using clear embossing powder I then heat set it and that is the shiney dots you can just see in the above picture.

Next I took a couple of inks dusty concorde and spiced marmalade i believe and started to add some inking down on paper just to get the first layer into the card.

I added a 2nd layer of ink and then took the retro dots and used the same inks to add a little tone on tone dots in the background too.

Then I took a very dark brown ink and edged all around the card to just bring the eye in a little. i also took my water spray and spritzed the card and dripped water onto the ink and blotted off to create some large drips too.

 Next I stamped the gorgeous sentiments I chose to use on this one.

 Then made a double mat for the whole thing to sit on.

I added some pretty thick foam to the back of the inky piece and added it to the backing this would work either horizontally or vertically which ever way as I kept the pattern fairly neutral in style.

I took the sentiments from earlier and inked the edges slightly with the marmalade and walnut stain inks then added a small black mat so they didn’t get lots in the inky backing.

Adding that same thick foam to the back of those two pieces I got both little sentiment flags on board

Believe is one of the Visible Image older designs which some of you may have in your collection.

This was one of the new fabulous June launch sentiments, and I love them all they are so different from anything else out there, and we love unique don’t we folks.

Well I hope you liked this weeks card here is a last look before I show you the stamps I used.

Retro Dot Background - Time To Be Happy - Kim Robertson

All I added was some simple pearls to the corners these are 6mm in size. I kept it all about the words as they mean a lot to me. If you are a journalling or scrap booking person wouldn’t this be absolutely fabulous wording for that.

So that was this weeks stamps used, sometimes it just needs to be really simple and doesn’t need anything else.  Other times I like to be really detailed too, it’s good to be versatile isn’t it.

Ok folks I will see you all next week.

Have a wonderful day.

Best wishes to all

 Fantastic tutorial as always, love that background! Thank you Kim 🙂

We will be back a little later with 3 stunners from Pauline using distress inks and cling film!

See you then!

Don’t Have Regrets – Visible Image stamps

Good Afternoon 🙂 Hope you are having a good week so far!

It’s Wednesday which means Kim Robertson is here with a brilliant step by step tutorial for you. Over to Kim…

Hello my lovlies

Well look at that sunshine we have been treated to recently, isn’t it so nice to leave work and there still be light and warmth too….

How are you all this week ? what have you been making?

I have been doing lots of crafting all over the weekend toward the fabulous new launch for Friday for our lovely Visible Image, amazingly gorgeous new stamps coming out on the 12th and I am sooo looking forward to all the fun.

Today I wanted to make something that reflected the bright Sky and happy feel of summer so here is my this weeks card for Visible Image DT.

Visible Image stamps - Good Times - No Regrets - Kim Robertson

It has some real fiery colours used on this one, the new Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey with  a tiny touch of Black Soot around the edges to bring your eye in. I am using the background as a feature for this one, rather than a huge focal point, so I have tried to keep it really bright and with lots to look at coming through in the background.

So as usual I have a full tutorial for you all to have a go at, and I hope you play along…

First I took the swirly stamp from the Plasma set of stamps and inked him up  (why is my stamp now a HE hmmm I don’t know why suddenly I have began an anthropomorphic phase with my stamps lol …I used Versafine in black and stamped Mr Plasma all over a piece of cream card ( I know it looks white but it really is more cream in the flesh as it were.)

My Usual colouring in technique with the first distress ink which is a new colour out this year called Abandoned Coral and this is what the first layer looks like, this is where it can be as patchy and all over and don’t give up it will come right the more inky layers you do the more it blends. Just like eye make up, the more light layers and blend in between the longer it lasts.

Here’s the second colour mixing with the last shade to form a real tutti frooti like goodness. the second colour of course is wild honey and where the two colours meet you get a real nice blend and an orangey glow.

After a few coats of colour I did my usual tone on tone using the same stamp I stamped some coral plasma balls in the Coral parts and Honey in the honey sections, etc.

Next I used the other stamp in this Plasma set and used some white Embossing powder with perfect medium sticky ink but first i dried the background thoroughly and rubbed over with an anti static bag and got it all very coated so none of the white embossing powder would stick to the ink on the card.

I spritzed a few blobs of water here and there gave it a few seconds then dabbed the ink away from the card to leave a few light patches for bubbles etc. I also gave the card front a good coating in the tattered angels glimmer mist, this colour is a pink shade shot through with goldy/bronze Mica to add a real sheen to the card.Very pretty.

I tried very hard to turn the card in the light to pick up the gold but you cant see the gorgeous sheen and stunning colour it is  in person really, just faintly.

I took some black soot distress ink and added it to the  edges of the card, to draw your eye in to the centre where we did all the  work on colours etc and blending I stampedNo Regrets which I embossed in shiny black embossing powder , here is a close up.

I used my black versafine and very quickly added the embossing powder too it before the archival ink started to dry.

I added a couple of mats just in simple black and white to give it a finished look as always.

Next I stamped out the Good Times sentiment on white card in black ink. but then I cut them all apart and matted them on black card too. I raised each one on a piece of foam to have them sitting a little proud on the backing.

I really wanted some sparkle on here, just a small amount but something really sparkly and I recently got some crushed glass glitter to try out and wow …. it is soooo sparkly it is crazy and even the camera picks it up a little.

No regrets14

I used this diamond dust just on the bottom two corners over glossy accents, just random dots all over the corner and the dust sprinkle on patted down and excess tipped back in pot. My goodness, I love this stuff!

Here is the close up of the left corner and below is the right and you can actually see even in these camera pics that there is a lot of clear sparkle , it truly is very pretty.

Right corner too.

No regrets complete2

And here are a couple more finished images of this weeks completed card. Lots of steps but not a complicated card with blending practise and inky layering goodness and lots of fun.

No regrets complete3

So the stamps I used from our amazing Visible Image are listed here…

I hope you are all having a good week , can you believe it is Wednesday again already.. I know I say it every week but it seems to have gone extra extra fast this week lol.

Ok my lovlies Don’t forget to come back this Friday for the new launch for Visible Image goodies!

Huge hugs from my crafty house to yours

Awesome Background Stamps – Visible Image

Hello There! We hope you are having a good week so far 🙂

We had an amazing time at The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Ally Pally at the weekend, we met lots of our fabulous customers and Facebook group members, and we met lots of new customers too! Some of them are already addicted after just a few days 😉 We had quite a few sell outs so we came home with a full order book! We did manage to grab a day off yesterday (did nothing much except sleep!) so today there’s a lot of catching up to do!!!

There’s loads of amazing NEW Design Team inspiration, so we shall start with Teresa’s post from Thursday last week. Over to Teresa…

Where does the week go, I can’t believe it is Thursday again already and my turn to share some more stamping inspiration for the Visible Image team!

This week I have two cards to show you using some of the fantastic background stamps that are available in the shop.

First up is is a cool ‘graffiti’ style card:

Visible Image Stamps


I stamped the Brick Wall stamp twice with black Versafine ink then added the Ink Splats and drips (from the Drag and Drip set) using Versamark ink and WOW fluorescent embossing powders.

I stamped and embossed one of the Ink Splats onto another piece of card then stamped and embossed the sentiment in black over it.

Stamps Used:

Brick Wall

Ink Splats

Drag and Drip

Imperfection Is Beauty


My second card…

Visible Image Stamps

I love the new squiggly doodly background stamps in the shop!

I stamped one of the stamps in the Plasma set randomly with Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. Once dry I stamped and embossed(in black) one of the stamps from the Orbital set to frame each circle.

The sentiment is stamped and embossed in black, then matted onto yellow and black card.

Stamps Used:

Steampunk and Rock – Visible Image stamps

Hello 🙂 We are back with our second post today! So much inspiration!

Over to the amazing Lisa Nygards…


Welcome Wednesday.

For my first card I’ve been playing and mixing the words from Alice set with Edgar from Visible Image. For the second one I’ve rediscover some foil, and just know I had some sticky embossing powder so I digged through my boxes and found it. So, everything on the card is covered with foil! You’ll find the set Rock Out here, and the circles are from the Universal set.

I stamped the rocker and words with Versa Mark ink, covered him with ”sticky embossing powerder” (there is several names on that product that acts the same, it becomes like a glue when you’ve melted it). Right after the powder melted I put on the sheet of foil. Then I just rubbed it easily with my nails like you do when you use rub-ons. You can probably use a bone folder or something too, just be gentle. You can see when the foil sticks and then you just pull it off. The line around is drawn by hand with a 2-way-glue pen. Let it ”dry” and then add the foil. I had a bigger 2-way glue pen, and I added that direct to my circle stamps and stamped with the glue! Waited until it was ”dry” and then added the foil once again. So easy and so fun! The golden circles are die cutted foam tape that I’ve added gold foil to.

Rock Out – Visible Image stamps

Hi There! Hope you’re having a good Saturday 🙂

Today Amber is here with more new stamps inspiration…

Hey guys!  Visible Image has a TON of new stamps!  On today’s card I used Rock Out, and Universal.  I started by stamping the circles in red and yellow.  Next I stamped my rocker guy and heat embossed him with clear embossing powder.  I drew a thin black border, and adhered my card front to a black card base.  I stamped the sentiment in black, and again in yellow to add dimension.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card with foam adhesive.

Scribbled Circle stamps @ Visible Image

Hi there! Thanks for coming to visit the Visible Image stamps blog today. We have double the inspiration for you today, as always on a Wednesday… In fact we have FOUR amazing cards to share with you! Yes FOUR 🙂

Lisa has been creating some truly stunning backgrounds, so make sure you pop back later on to see what she’s been making!

Here with today’s first post it’s the lovely Kim Robertson…

Hi folks.. Happy Wednesday!

I hope you all had some of the nice sunshine we had yesterday, it was good to leave work A. in the daylight and B. in the sunshine and no rain wow… could it be that Spring is starting to wake up.. Oh I hope so.

Anyway I hope you are all doing well and I have a really different card for you today using a background stamp called Orbital from the new launch which really could be turned into anything, or used for anything. It could be used for mixed media and journalling also and would look great in white on black or in bright neons as a colour flash too. I used it in conjunction with one of the more recent word stamps with a different edge.

I did lots of layering as usual to enhance the backing to keep it neat and added a couple of little wooden dragonflies colouring with inks to match and some sparkle to catch the light in a couple of the corners and on the body of the dragonflies too.

I love the colour combination of teal and duckegg blue with latte and browns.

Visible Image stamps - Karma - Orbital - Scribbled Circles - Kim Robertson

I also blended some Vintage photo distress ink over the edges to make it pop from the white and black of the background too.

Heres is the background alone so you can see the mix of colours on the backing with the layers etc before I go in with the sentiment raised up on foam for dimension.

I stamped out my sentiment  from the Express yourself range of sentiment stamps from the Be Happy set and cut it out with a small tonic circle die and inked through the die like a stencil to give it a faint blue tone and cut a mat a little larger in black for it to sit on.

This is a close up of the little sparkle on the dragonfly and how the sentiment is slightly raised from the card. This is slightly flatter without all the frills on this one so it could easily be posted in an average envelope as opposed to my usual embelished style.

Visible Image stamps - Karma - Orbital - Scribbled Circles - Kim Robertson 2

Another look at the finished results, I know this saying is sometimes used if someone is upset with another and people say this as a just deserts, and they will get theirs type thing, but this was never originally meant this way. It was a much more philosophical saying more for a good deed and how folks would be rewarded in richness of life and after life for kindness in this life, so then you see it with new eyes don’t you.

Visible Image stamps - Karma - Orbital - Scribbled Circles - Kim Robertson

But mostly I just like how the little card flows for such a simple stamp an the possibilities are endless.


Orbital Background.                                     Be Happy stamp set.

These are the stamp sets I used and you can see how they all have sooo many uses , the possibillities are so endless here I sometimes look at lots of stamps and get a little lost as there are so many beautiful stamps to choose but if I limit myself to choosing just two or three and working with that I have so many more ideas so sometimes it is worth keeping it really simple.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Lots of love to all you wonderful ladies (and maybe couple of gents haha)
crafty hugs

Amazing background, simple yet so effective layering up the scribbled circles in different colours! Orbital reminds us of when were were kids using a spirograph! Love Kim’s colour combo too. You’ll find more of Kim’s fabulous work over on her blog

Gift of Happiness – Visible Image stamps

Hello and thanks for coming to see us here on the Visible Image blog today 🙂

It’s a beautiful day here in South Wales today, blue skies and sunshine, but so cold!

Kim Bacon is here to kick off a brand new week of amazing inspiration…

Hello! Welcome back to all you regular readers of the blog but a MAHOOOSIVE welcome to any new readers today! It is such a privilege to do what I do and I love letting other people know all about the fab stamps that Visible Image let me play work with!

All the links to the Visible Image website, blog, challenges, etc can be found at the bottom of this post. Also over on the ‘about us’ page you will see links to the other DT members blogs. We publish all through the week, each one of us on a different day, hopefully inspiring you to get creative with your Visible Image stash. Each DT member creates something using stamps from the range of their choice and using their own techniques. So whether you like CAS work, full on embellished pieces, cards, paint, inks, sprays, there is always something different going on with Visible Image.

 Visible Image - Just Be Happy - Plasma Background - Kim Bacon

Today I am showing you a useful project in the form of a gift bag. Now I used a gift bag board template. There are several on the market and there are also lots of How2s on YouTube telling you the steps to follow if you don’t have a board template.

The main thing for this project is in the making of the patterned paper. I know I tell you this regularly, but making your own backgrounds is such fun, as well as meaning you have totally co-ordinated papers for your project!

I started with an A3 sheet of card. I coloured it with Brusho paints. Check out YouTube for some inspiring techniques. This piece required lots of watery splotches. I mixed Brusho powder with water to make a wash in the 3 colours I wanted to use. You only need a small amount of powder for this as it’s quite potent stuff! You can always make more! I will show you in the How2 I’m planning OK? I will make time this week to do it.

Once dry I took the large squiggle and small squiggle, and stamped them all over the page using inks in shades of green and blue.The stamps are officially called Plasma (the large one) and Universal (the smaller one from 6 piece set) but squiggle works for me.

I made the tag and added the sentiment which is from the Be Happy set in the Express Yourself collection which I have embossed in black.

All the stamp images I used below are ‘click to link’ so you can have a look in more detail on the Visible Image website.

Take Risks – Visible Image stamps

Hi there! Thanks for visiting us today 🙂

Our post is a little late today as it’s been rather crazy getting as many orders as possible packaged and posted to our wonderful customers… A VERY important task! We are so so happy that you are loving our stamps so much <3

It’s fabulous Friday so for today’s inspiration it’s over to the very fabulous Pauline Butcher…

Hello my crafty friends,
I hope none of you are suffering too much from the Winter weather we have been having of late, it’s just been cold and dark here in Warwick, with a tiny bit of Sun occasionally.
Today I’d like to share a card I’ve made using some fabulous Visible Image Stamps.
I have used…… Take Risks, from the Be Happy Set, one of the fab new set’s in the Express Yourself range, Vintage CarBronte ScriptRetro Dots Background, and the grungy edge stamp from the Jake Skates Set.

 Visible Image stamps - Vintafe Car - Take Risks, Script - background stamps - Pauline Butcher

I started with the background, a piece of water colour paper, on which I sprinkled Brusho paints, and spritzed with water, until I had the effect I wanted. When it was dry, I stamped the Bronte script and the Retro Dots, using Distress inks, then using Versafine Black ink, I stamped the Vintage Car, the sentiment and the edging. Using thick household bleach and a small paintbrush, I beached all the bits I wanted white on the car and the words, and used a white pen to highlight the sentiment, Simplezzzzzz !!!!

Imagine. Create. Visible Image stamps.

Hello again! Happy Saturday to you 🙂  Hope you have a great evening planned.

Over to Amber for today’s second dose of awesome Visible Image inspiration…

Today I wanted to share a page out of my watercolor art journal.  I started by watercoloring my background.  Next I used stencils to sponge and spritz some polkadots.  Then I went crazy with stamps! I used six different Visible Image stamps.  I especially love how the plaid background stamp looks on art journal pages.  And how awesome is that sentiment stamp!? Love it!
