Good Evening! Thank you for visiting our blog today 🙂
We are catching up with some more of the latest work from our wonderful team. We have some fantastic Christmas projects to share with you today featuring some of our NEW designs for 2016…
My mind is still turning towards Christmas and this week I have gone for a non-traditional colour combination.
I used the star stamp from the Universal set and randomly stamped and embossed using Versamark ink and red, yellow and green embossing powders.
I stamped the Magic of Christmas sentiment with Versamark and sprinkled red and yellow embossing powder to create a stripe effect. I love the way that the colours pop from the black background – just remember to check that your embossing powders are opaque when using a dark background…these are from WOW powders!
I have a hard time thinking about Christmas already, but infact I like to make Christmas Cards. Don’t know how that goes around… lol. Today I have made a card for Visible Image, and used their awsome sentense Merry Christmas XL. Yes – it is BIG! I like that, it gets total focus.
I’ve used a brown distress ink pad, but before I stamped I misted it with water to get the sentense a bit ”softer”. Then, before it dried I covered it with clear embossing powder. I was probably a bit slow, since I missed a few spots that was already dry. But I think it adds texture and life and it feels a bit old.
I inked through a Memory Box Stencil, then heat embossed the Magic of Christmas sentiment stamp in silver. This made a nice quick card.
Today I’m sharing some more inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I’d like to show you some of the new Christmas Stamps from Visible Image. The snowflake is wonderful and the Merry Christmas sentiment looks so precious!
My base is a tag which is primed with black Gesso. After it was dry I added some white PanPastel color to let it look like a chalk board. This will also work with normal white chalk. The snowflakes and the sentiment from the White Christmas set are stamped with a white pigment ink. I love it, that the white is not 100% opak. That give it a real chalk board look. It’s also possible to work with white embossing powder, but that doesn’t look so real.
Today I want to share an art tag I made for Visible Image stamps using the awesome Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree stamp set, new for 2015.
I went all vintage tones using DecoArt Crackle, Decoupage Paper medium, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Distress Spray ink and various alcohol inks.
I added some alcohol inks to highlight the cracks once dry. The tag is edged with Potting Soil Archival Ink.
Thank you so much ladies, awesome work as always 🙂
