Never Forget You Are Beautiful

Hello! We are back with more wonderful inspiration today. Pauline Butcher made Helen a stunning Birthday card featuring our gorgeous hummingbird stamp, and our spirograph inspired ‘Visometry’ background stamps, and Pauline is here on the blog today to tell you how she made it…

Hi there,

I am back from my wonderful relaxing holiday, the weather just couldn’t have been any better, I just wish I was still there, lol, but life must go on !!!!

It’s time for me to share something I’ve made using some of the awesome Visible Image products. It was Helen’s birthday (Mrs Visible Image) a couple of weeks ago, and this was the card I made her…


The stamps I’ve used on this card are…

Life is Beautiful: the hummingbird and the sentiment. I also added in ‘never forget it from the Voices In Your Head stamp set

and some background stamping: I made the flowers from the Visometry set

geometric shapes - background stamps - visible image

the circles from the Shape it Up set

line art - shape background stamps

and also the Strobes Stencil

I started by colouring the card with Mustard Seed Distress ink, then lay the stencil over the top, and blended through it with Picked Raspberry Distress ink. I then stamped the Hummingbird using Versafine Black ink, and randomly stamped the circles using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.

I then stamped the Hummingbird again on a separate piece of card, again using Versafine Black ink, and using Pebeo Dyna paints, with 4 or 5 colours, I painted over the image, shading where it needed to be. When it was dry, I fussy cut it.

I stamped out the flowers in different sizes, coloured them in using some Sparkle Pens, then fussy cut them, layering up the sizes using 3D glue gel, to give dimension, and attached them to the card using 3D glue gel, cutting them to fit the card. I then added the painted Hummingbird. I stamped the sentiment onto some painted card, with Versamark, and heat embossed it with Wow Primary Parma Velvet.

I am hosting an Inky Workshop in Warwick, on Sunday July 22nd, for more details contact me by email: [email protected]

Many thanks for popping in.
Hugs, Pauline xxxx

This is such a stunning card Pauline..  I adore it, thank you! ♡

The hummingbird looks amazing, the flowers look fabulous, and the strobes stencil really brings the gorgeous background to life!
