Creativation 2018

Hello there! Firstly let us apologise for neglecting our blog for the past few weeks.. Creativation was AMAZING for us! We met so fantastic people, and we had so many orders from fabulous stores in the USA, Canada, Denmark and even Australia while we were there!

Sadly when we got back to the UK we were both struck down with a very nasty flu, which literally knocked us off our feet for a week! So between that and packaging all the orders, we have had little time for anything else..

We are therefore playing ‘catch up’ here on the blog for the next few weeks, as we have so many amazing projects from our awesome Design Team to share with you! But we first we want to show you how our booth came together…




We love how our walls turned out!




Mark remembered to pack his spirit level!!




Hands up if you LOVE these stamps!




Our colourful corner of the very large hall !




We were incredibly proud of our stand!


Thank you again to our wonderful team for all your outstanding samples which were adored ♡



We’ll be back very soon with the first of many incredible projects created with our NEW stamps!

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today.

We are excitedly announcing our amazing NEW Design Team members every day this week!

I have been creative in some way all my life. I have been scrapping since 2003 and love mixed media, art journaling and scrapbooking. Getting messy and creating completes me, and to be able to share my projects is a bonus.

Welcome Elisa Ablett!

Hi there!

All this week we are announcing the amazing designers joining our team here at Visible Image!


First up today we welcome the awesomely talented Elisa Ablett who lives in Australia…




Hi I’m Elisa, I live in a beautiful part of the East Coast of Australia with my Hubby and two boys and i have been art and crafting for many years. I majored in Art in college and I have a great range in my style from Mixed Media Art to Scrapbooking to Watercolour painting, Home decor items, Canvases, Natural Wall Hangings, mixed media pieces to Art Journalling and a combination of the lot at times. If i had to describe my style i would say eclectic, different and colourful. I love to use loads of different mediums on my projects but as my hubby would say I have a unhealthy addiction to stamps, stencils and paint. I also have a penchant for using upcycled or repurposing items for my projects, from natural items to hand dying fabric, wire, feathers, toilet paper and other unusual items. I absolutely love creating, its not just a hobby, it’s therapy and joy and everything in between.



Here are some of Elisa’s stunning creations that got our attention…









You will find more fabulous projects over on Elisa’s blog.


Welcome to the team Elisa! ♡


We adore Elisa’s style.. her projects and scrapbook layouts are so striking, and the way Elisa mixes stamping and embellishments is wonderful!

We are so excited for Elisa to start inspiring you with our stamps and stencils!


Come back later to meet our next NEW designer…

Welcome Becca Cruger!

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today.

We are excitedly announcing our NEW Design Team members every day this week.

Next we welcome the amazing Becca Cruger who lives in the USA…




I’ve been crafting ever since I discovered how to attach glitter to paper! You’ll frequently find me with ink all over my hands because I LOVE working with messy products – especially Ranger Distress products. I am the owner of Damsel of Distressed Cards in Grand Forks, ND and teach cardmaking and mixed media art classes. My card designs are very eclectic and my favorite way to create is by layering and incorporating mixed media. I serve on several design teams across the blogosphere and have been published in Craft Stamper Magazine. I’m so excited to join the Visible Image team!



Here are some of Becca’s awesome creations that ‘wowed’ us…








You will find more fabulous projects over on Becca’s blog.

Welcome to the team Becca! ♡



We just love Becca’s style.. the way she adds depth using layers or colour, with just the right amount of inky!
We are so excited for Becca to start inspiring you with our stamps and stencils!


Come back tomorrow to meet our next 2 NEW designers…

Welcome Lisa Taggart!

Hi there! We are so excited to announce our NEW Design Team!

All week we will be introducing you to the amazing designers who will be inspiring you for the next year.



Today we welcome the incredibly talented Lisa Taggart who lives in Northern Ireland…





I’ve been an avid crafter for many years. I have a passion for colour and texture and like nothing more than experimenting with inks, paints and pastes. Mixed media is my current love and of course I couldn’t be without stamps and stencils. So the possibility of working with beautifully designed unique stamps was just too tempting!!



Here are some of Lisa’s stunning creations that really caught our eye…








You will find more gorgeous projects over on Lisa’s blog.


Welcome to the team Lisa! ♡


We adore Lisa’s style, and her love of colour and texture!
We cannot wait for Lisa to start inspiring you with our stamps and stencils!

NEW Stamps Inspiration @ Visible Image

Hello there! Hope you’ve had a great start to the week.

Wow what an awesome show we had on Create and Craft TV on Sunday… our MDF Monoliths sold out so quickly! As did one of our multibuys! Thank you so much to everyone who watched, ordered, and to those who emailed in to the studio 🙂 We enjoyed every second and can’t wait for our next show!


It’s all pretty crazy here at the moment… it’s official, you are LOVING our new stamps and our Monoliths! We have received so many orders… thank you so so much! We are working around the clock to get as many pre-orders dispatched as possible this week, now that our NEW designs have been released. We really appreciate your patience during this incredibly busy time.. there is currently at least a 10 working day dispatch timescale for orders.

If you placed a pre-order you will be one of the very first people to get your hands on our stamps… and they will be worth the wait we promise!



We are also away this coming weekend from Saturday to Tuesday for the UK Trade Show at the NEC! Looking forward to meeting lots of shop owners who are yet to discover us!

Shine Bright @ Visible Image

Good Evening! We are back with some awesome inspiration this evening!

First up is Katy Leitch with this amazing Monolith..


2016-02-10 Visible Image - freestanding MDF - Light Bulb stamp - Katy Leitch


Hello there! My make for the Visible Image DT today uses two of their BRAND NEW releases which are now available to pre-order. As soon as I saw the Shine Bright stamp I knew I wanted it. Something that little bit different…



2016-02-10 Visible Image - Light Bulb stamp - Katy Leitch


Also new are the MDF monoliths which are perfect for making pieces for display and also for practical makes (more on that from some of my teamies to come). I’ve created something purely decorative today.



2016-02-10 Visible Image - Light Bulb stamp - Katy Leitch 2


Here’s how I made it:

1) To create the background I layered scrunched tissue paper over cardstock (you could also work straight onto the MDF if you prefer). I added a die cut clock and some string before painting the whole thing with black gesso,

2) When the gesso had dried, I dry-brushed all over with paint in purple and blue shades (I used DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics). After that, I dry-brushed a very small amount of white gesso onto some of the raised areas.

3) I painted some die cut cogs with silver metallic paint (also DecoArt Media) and added them to the background along with some washers and nuts from the DIY store.

4) I stamped the light bulb onto white card and coloured it with Distress Inks (Mustard Seed and Wild Honey). I added silver Sakura Gelly Roll metallic pen to the lower parts.

5) I then stamped the lightbulb again onto Dura-Lar film using StazOn (you could use acetate instead). The Dura-Lar can be heated and gently shaped and here it’s curved gently to resemble a ‘real’ lightbulb. Apply more silver pen to the back of the film light bulb and glue it over the card one, just adding the glue towards the base where the black stamping will hide it.

6) Stamp a portion of the ‘inspire’ dictionary stamp onto a scrap of card, swipe lightly with Distress Ink in Mustard Seed before securing behind a bookplate.

Hope you LOVE this stamp as much as me!

Monday Inspiration Part 1 @ Visible Image

Good Morning! Hope you had a great weekend 🙂

This coming week is packed full of gorgeous inspiration created with our NEW stamps, leading up to our show on Create and Craft TV on Sunday at 10am… Valentine’s day… a perfect day to spread some Visible Image LOVE! ♡ ♡ ♡ And we know you will love not only the products on the show but the amazing demo’s Mark and Pauline have planned! We can’t wait!!!

Today we have 2 awesome projects here on the blog. First up is our US Design Team member Kim Johnny with her very first Monolith…



Today I am so excited to share my first project made with the awesome new products by Visible Image!! Yay!

As part of the design  team, I was very grateful to be given some of the new MDF “Monoliths” and new stamps to play and share today. The Monoliths and Dragonfly “Live in the Moment” are available for pre-order now!

This play was lots of fun and I really tried to use everything I love in making it!



Visible Image stamps - Live In The Moment - Dragonfly stamp - Kim Johnny


The Monolith is a wonderful size and is designed to work with the stamps perfectly. It is 17cm x 10cm. About 6 inches by 4 inches and a sturdy 3mm thick, laser cut and smooth. And I know it’s weird, but the wood smells good, too. Yeah I know weird but I love the smell of pencils and wood 🙂
I created the background with my DecoArt Blogger stash. Yummy DecoArt Crackle Paste, Fluid Acrylics and Antiquing Cream.



Visible Image stamps - Live In The Moment - Dragonfly stamp - Kim Johnny 2


The flip side is collaged with mat medium and DecoArt Fluid Acrylics. It is edged in the DA Fluid Acrylic Gold, love the shine it has.

Everything is heat embossed because I love embossing and dragonflies. So I had to combine all the things I love in this project. It makes them shine 🙂 I used Ranger Extra Fine Black and Recollections Bronze powders.

Have a great day!

We will be back later today with a fantastic card by Kim Bacon featuring another of our awesome NEW stamp sets!

Sparkle In The Rain Monolith – Visible Image Stamps

Hi there! We are very excited to share this incredible piece of art work from Susanne Rose today…



Visible Image stamps - Sparkle In The Rain, MDF Monolith, Mixed Media Art - Susanne Rose



Hi my dear Visible Image friends!

I’m sharing my first Monolith today! It’s a mdf stand alone Monolith. Perfect for mixed media. I love it. And a bonus is, you can decorate both sides! So you can turn it from time to time! For my front I used black chalkboard paint and covered the whole surface. After this was completely dry I used Fran-tage embossing enamel together with the “Sparkle in the Rain” girl. To get a good coverage I embossed it two times. That means: Immediately after the first layer is melted you add another layer of powder. It will stick to your first impression, because it’s is still hot. You have to be quick, but keep in mind to put away you heat gun, to not blow away the powder. Some on the enamel will stick to the background as well. That’s because it is so hot. But I really like that. So the contrast is not too hard.

I used Gelatos to add color. They are working great on the chalkboard. I add some texture with the Tim Holtz Speckles stencil and structure paste.



I split the sentiment by masking one part with Washi tape. Don’t forget to remove the tape before you stamp. The word “SPARKLE” is embossed with some glitter teal powder.




The flowers are all handmade paperflowers. I used dies from Sizzix and Marianne Design. The blue one is cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I add some wire and gems for more interest.




My back is totally simple. It’s also covered with chalkboard paint. Of course that means you can write on it with chalk!

Thanks for stopping by!  Can’t wait to see all your first Monoliths!
xx Susanne.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
