Galaxy Skies

Hi there! Josefine is back with her second project to inspire you today…





I bet you have tried several ways of creating a galaxy sky background. I did too. With water colors, Ken Oliver Color Bursts and now I also tried it with Paper Artsy Infusions. And what to do with it? Yes! Using it for the new Visible Image Zodiac stamp sets. For today’s card, I used the Gemini one. Why? Well, I’m a Gemini 😀

To show you how easy it is to create a galaxy background with the Paper Artsy Infusions, here is a quick tutorial. I picked a mix of blue, purple and pink colors. The exact ones are listed below.


I sprinkled a mix of purple and pink onto a piece of card stock. To reduce the mess, I put the paper into a tupperware box. Then I spritzed water on top using my awesome super fine mister.

While the paper was still wet, I sprinkled the other colors on top till I had the saturation that I wanted. Then I heat set it. There was still so much gorgeous color left, so I decided to dip the paper into the left over color inside the box. I’m so glad that I did that, because it added the perfect texture.

I needed a few stars, so I sprinkled some white paint all over the paper.

Next up, I wanted to stamp the Gemini star sign. I wanted to make sure that it sparkles and shines in all its gorgeousness. The Emerald Creek Gold Sparkle embossing powder was the perfect pick for my sparkling focal point.

Then I stamped some of the sayings to the inside of the card.

At the end I adhered the galaxy background onto a black piece of card stock and both onto a white card base.

I hope you enjoyed my super easy galaxy background with the Visible Image Zodiac stamp for the Gemini sign. 🙂

Calming Sunshine

Hello! Hope you are enjoying all the inspiration we have been sharing today! It’s been incredibly busy lately with nowhere near enough hours in the day.. so we are having a mega catch up here on the blog this weekend before we get back to normality, and daily inspiration!

Over to Jane Tyrrell…


Welcome to another dose of Visible Image stamps inspiration. Today I am sharing another creation of mine using the stunning ‘Create your Calm’ stamp set.


This is the lovely stamp set I worked with..





I used all the stamps in this set, the little waves/bubbles make such a cool background.


I used Paperartsy fresco acrylics to make my sunny sea background. I swirled my paint around to give a feeling of the sea and added some “sunshine” in the centre




I stamped my sweet seahorse in the sunshine using Versafine Clair ink.
I then embossed the waves in white and blue and the sentiment in white.
I added some white highlights to him




and finished off the edge of the “sea” with more embossed waves






I made a “frame” for my picture using photo corners.



Here it is finished…




This really is such a delightful stamp set to work with… and it makes me long for summer to hurry up and arrive too.

Thanks for stopping by today and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me, I really appreciate every single one.

Have a lovely weekend… It feels so good to be in February, the days are definitely starting to get lighter.

Back soon.

Bye for now,
Jane x
