LOVE…

Hi there! We are back with our final dose of gorgeous inspiration for today.

Veerle Moreels has a beautiful card to share with you…


Hohoho… Merry… wait… what? Finally the sun is coming and snow is the last thing on my mind right now. But… I did indeed take out my Christmas stamps to make a card today ^.^ But that’s only because this set is just perfect for so many more occasions then only Christmas projects.

I really wanted to make a card to send some love over to someone, so the choice to use the word LOVE was obvious, now to build up the rest of the card… I just took my box of Visible Image stamps and looked at each set to find tiny elements that I could bring together. And I ended up with four of them in total for my background.





I firmly believe you should tell anyone that you hold dear you love them. Believe me, you can stay behind alone in a blink of an eye and then it’s to late. So who do you want to tell you love him or her today? What is holding you back…tomorrow is never promised.


Stamps used:


Peace Love and Hope





Believe in Unicorns




Sparkle in the Rain




Fibonacci




Ink Splats




This really is a beautiful card Veerle.. love how you have used little elements from all these stamp sets to create it ♡

Own Kind of Beautiful

Good Evening! We have Lisa Taggart here on the blog sharing an incredible mixed media canvas…


Did you know that Visible Image have some fabulous background stamps to compliment their feature sets? In today’s post I wanted to celebrate these stamps and show what wonderful texture they can create.

Also I’ve long wanted to experiment with printing feathers using my gelli plate. So I thought that I would incorporate these too. Here’s the result:





Stamps Used:


     


     



To begin the project, like I seem to do most days I used a gelli print background from my stash as a starting base. This was created using Golden high flow acrylic paint.

I stencilled over it and built up the background gradually, using distress ink (including oxides) and the background stamps.





I then then flicked some blue, white and gold ink on top. When dry I added another layer of stamping.



Having printed my feathers I used the stamps to stamp on top of these.

I then used the feature set to stamp the butterflies on to scrap card. When cut out I added them along with the sentiment and hearts. I also did some doodling and added highlights with acrylic pens including gold pen. Finally for additional texture I cut up some floristry mesh,adhered gems to the butterflies and attached some black and blue bakers twine.

I think this is one of my favourites. I hope you like it too!

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 ♡
