NEW Midnight Sky Stamp Set

Hello! We want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who has ordered our new stamps! We are overwhelmed by how loved they are and it means the world to us. We are back to sharing the amazing Design Team inspiration on the blog from today and have lots of inspiration coming your way! First up we have stempelfrida with a beautiful card featuring our MIDNIGHT SKY set which includes our wonderful man in the moon stamp and some gorgeous sentiments…


This saying here becomes so true again especially in our days currently: “No matter where we are, we all gaze at the same moon”.

My sky is a collage of blue toned alcohol inks.




As a basis for my moon and the stars I glued a layer of gold leaf to a white piece of cardstock with glue spray. When it was all dried well I stamped the motives onto it with Versamark. I embossed them with a shiny fine embossing powder. Then I fussy cut the motives, covered them with Versamark and embossed the surface with transparent embossing poder.


I added the motives with distance pads to my sky. The gold spitz is made with Bronze powder and a brush. I also used the bronze powder on the lower part of the sentiment.

NEW Rise and Shine Stamp Set

Hi! We hope you are doing ok and staying safe. It’s been crazy here leading up to the release of our NEW stamps tomorrow, so apologies for neglecting our blog. We are back to resume sharing the amazing Design Team inspiration though! Lots coming up over the coming days. Jane Tyrrell is here today with a stunning card featuring our RISE AND SHINE stamp set which includes the fabulous sunshine stamp and inspiring sentiment…


Hello

I am delighted to share my first make with one of the brand new stamp sets.

I found it hard to choose which of my samples I have made to share first. I thought we could all do with some sunshine as here in England as we are in a month long lockdown again and decided my sample made with this set was perfect.


Meet the fabulous Rise and Shine Stamp Set. I adore anthropomorphic imagery.

sunshine stamp | visible image | rise and shine set

(To give you a heads up there is a wonderful Man in the Moon in their new Midnight Sky set too.I have wanted Mark, aka Mr Visible Image to design a Man in the moon stamp for years and I am thrilled he has. My next sample I share in 2 weeks will be using that set).



So back to the sun. It was certainly shining last week as I took my daily walks. The colours of autumn this year are quite breathtaking and a little sunshine added in just makes my heart sing.


I also have a ceramic sun which sits on the wall of my studio. I bought this on holiday in Sicily and I really do treasure it.


Here is a close up



So fired up with these colours and ideas I grabbed some Yupo paper and made a sunshine packed background using alcohol inks.  I just dripped the inks onto the paper and used a blower to move the inks around.



I used all the hot yellows, oranges and a little flamingo ink.
I then turned the background sideways. I stamped the large sunshine and 2 small onto some yellow inky mop up card and cut them out.



I added some of my favourite distress colour, crackling campfire to the rays to add some colour and interest to the yellow.


The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of card which I then cut into a cloud shape. I also cut 2 more cloud shapes out of white card.


I then put my design together.


Here it is..

and one last shot…

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope my sunny card brought a ray of sunshine into your day.
Stay safe.


Bye for now,

Jane x




This is such a fabulous card Jane, your alcohol ink background is just perfect and we love the sentiment stamped onto a cloud. Thank you  ♡

NEW Phoenix Rising Stamp Set

Hello! We hope you are keeping safe and well. We are so excited to start sharing the amazing Design Team inspiration created with our NEW STAMPS! Up first we have Heather Mitchell with an incredible mixed media card showcasing our PHOENIX RISING STAMP SET…

Hey everyone…

Hope you’re all well and good?! I’m just going to ignore everything going on in the world right now and just concentrate on the latest release of stamps from Visible Image! There’s six in all and today I am sharing my make using the gorgeous Phoenix Rising stamp set.



phoenix stamp | visible image | mixed media card


I love the grungy look of this set and look forward to exploring and experimenting more with it to make something not so obvious, if you get me, something away from the fire and hot colours… I’m just not sure what yet!

This set has one main stamp, the Phoenix, and then two fabulously abstract stamps which I’ve used as flames on this make. You also get two sentiments ‘Hope’ and ‘We Rise By Lifting Others’ which couldn’t be anymore poignant at present.



The background was made using Distress Oxide Sprays (Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon and Candied Apple) and I’ve made it so the lighter colours are in the middle. I’ve just sprayed them and spritzed on water to allow them to drip a bit.

I’ve mopped up the left over spray on my mat using some watercolour card and left this to dry. I would be using this later to stamp the Phoenix on as the main focal point.


With the background now dry, I’ve used my go-to stencil from Visible Image, Strobes, and a product which is new to me; Izink Ice in Melted Butter. The Ice is a translucent gel/paint and for me it’s just perfect as you can see layers underneath the more you use it.



You can heat dry the Ice which is perfect for me as I’m super impatient the it comes to waiting for things to dry and I actually quite enjoy watching paint dry with a heat tool.


The fabulous Phoenix on the card was stamped onto that mopped up card I’d saved and stamped using Versafine Clair ink pads (Cheerful, Summertime and Tulip Red). It’s then heat embossed using WOW’s Clear Embossing Powder. I’ve repeated this 3 times in total to get a good depth on the Phoenix.




I used the same method of stamping and heat embossing (using the same colours) to create a tinted fire like layer at the bottom of the card. The great thing about using a glossy clear embossing powder is the amazing glaze it gives you!



After edging the card with black ink, I’ve added the sentiment which has been stamped on the off-cut of card I used for the Phoenix itself and also edged it in black. To really make those colours ‘POP’ I’ve matted the card onto black card stock and then onto a 7×7″ card blank.

Life Is A Journey | Handmade Card

Hello! Today’s the day we are back on Create and Craft TV for a double length mixed media show with Mark! (More details below!). Today’s inspiration is one of the gorgeous show samples created by Ali Carubia, featuring our fabulous BREAK FREE stamp set with our TIME TUNNEL stencil…


Happy Tuesday!


I’m sharing a card made for today’s TV show! It’s perfect for Autumn, with bonfire coloured daisies and a Catherine wheel inspired background – things I remember from years gone by.

daisy stamp | spiral stencil | monochromatic card | handmade | stamping



Tutorial

Spray the back of the Time Tunnel stencil with stencil spray and leave to dry for a few minutes.

Cut a piece of white card to just over 6″ x 6″ and stick the stencil on firmly.

Pour a little black gesso onto a saucer or an old foil tray – away from your craft mat (as it gets everywhere!).


Load up your stencil brush with a little black gesso and apply to card in a upright pouncing motion, so the paint doesn’t slip under the stencil. Go over any white bits you have missed.


Peel the stencil away from the card, the centre bits are quite delicate so you may need to rotate your card and peel away in sections.

Put your stencil in some water!

Create a colourful background using the the yellow, orange and red distress oxide inks.

Squish some ink onto your craft mat and spritz with water, pick it up on some white card and dry with a heat gun.


Take the Visible Image Break Free stamp set and stamp the flower head onto your coloured card with black versafine ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

You will need 4 flower heads for this card.


Stamp and clear heat emboss 2 vases and 4 flower stems onto scraps of white card.

Cut these all out – I left a border around the flower heads and vases but cut the stems very close to the embossed lines.

Snip between the petals so you can manipulate them later.

Trim any mucky edges off your black and white spiral card and fix it onto a larger piece of black card with a border of about 1/4″ around, and then onto a white 7″ x 7″ card blank.

Colour the 4 flower stems with green and a little orange oxide ink.



Snip out the inside of one of the vases leaving the water line in place.


Colour both of the vases with a little pale blue ink for the water and light grey alcohol pen on the glass.

Glue the complete vase to the bottom right hand side then glue the stems. Don’t worry too much about what the top of the vase looks like as that will be covered by a flower head.Fix the second snipped vase over the first with pva glue, so that the stems are trapped underneath the water line.

Add a shadow to the bottom of the vase using your grey alcohol pen, to ground it to the card.



Use a white gel pen to add some highlights on the petals.

Shape the flowers using a ball tool and the palm of your hand/foam mat to give them a bit of dimension, curl a few of the petals forwards, away from the rest before attaching the four flower heads to your card using 3d glue gel.


Apply some Star Dust stickles to the centre of the flowers.


Stamp the ‘Life is a Journey’ sentiment from the Just be Happy set with black versafine ink onto white card, and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Matt this onto black card with about 1/8″ border

Attach the sentiment to the bottom left hand side of your card using foam tape or 3D glue gel.


Stand back and admire your finished work!



Here is my completed card 😎

I am really happy with this one!

Create Your Imagination | Eye Stencil

Hi there! Today’s inspiration from Jane Tyrrell features some of the stamps and stencils on our Create and Craft TV shows tomorrow! (More details below).  Jane’s striking card was created with our gorgeous EYE CONTACT stencil, the moth and lightbulb stamps from our GLIMMER OF LIGHT set with a fantastic sentiment stamp…



Good Evening

I am here with my latest Visible Image design team make. Mark aka Mr Visible Image will be appearing on your TV screens again TOMORROW (Tuesday 27 October) at midday on Create and Craft. It is a longer 1 1/2 hour show and he will be sharing some awesome demos plus samples from myself and my teamies.


3 of the products on the show are the amazing Eye contact stencil

moth stamp | lightbulb | visible image


and the brilliant Just Be Happy stamp set


inspiring sentiment stamps | quotes | just be happy



I decided to make a canvas with them for my show sample.


This is what I got up to;
Using Versafine Onyx ink and an stencil brush I stenciled the eye onto white smooth card and then clear embossed it. I then stamped all the other elements of the design as well. I didn’t worry about masking the corner of the eye where the small light bulb went as I would be adding a cut out bulb when finished.





Using Zig watercolour pens I coloured all the moths



I added a little shimmer with a glitter pen to the wings



I stamped out several of the light bulbs and clear embossed. I coloured the element and then added glossy accents. Here they are wet, they go transparent when dry and I then cut them out



I coloured the pupil of the eye in rainbow glitter pens and again added Glossy accents. I then left everything to dry



I then put my design together.


Here it is..

Glimmer of Light | Moth Stamp

Hello and Happy Friday! Lynda Hall is here to inspire you today with an awesome card featuring the moth stamp and inspiring sentiment from our GLIMMER OF LIGHT set, and our STROBES stencil…


It’s my Visible Image sharing day, and today I am featuring a rather dramatic card using the Glimmer of Light stamp set, along with the Strobes stencil. With the current Covid situation there are certainly some dark moments for many of us, and I think the sentiment on this is definitely one to remember. Things will get better if we all just hang on in there.


moth stamp | mixed media card



I began with a base piece of card with distress oxide spray inks in orange and yellows. I taped the Strobes stencil down, and applied a generous layer of black texture paste through it.



Before it dried, I sprinkled Sparkling sand Wow embossing powder , and a touch of Perfect Pearls mica all over it.



Then came the magic part- heating it all up!



As well as melting the embossing powder, the wet texture paste swells and bubbles, adding even more texture. Yummy!



Once totally cool I added more colour to the rays with sparkle pens…



..and darkened the edges with black soot distress ink to draw the eye to the centre.



The next step was to stamp and emboss lightbulb onto heat resistant acetate. I coloured on the back with alcohol ink. I stamped the moth on the same coloured card as the base and coloured with pens.



The bulb, moth and sentiments were all adhered with 3d gel glue for added dimension.

You can see this sample and more amazing ones from the team on Create and Craft TV on 27th October. Mark will no doubt have some fabulous demos to inspire too, so watch if you can!

Guardian Angel Stamp | Wow Embossing

Hello! We hope you are staying safe and well. Today’s inspiration from Ericka Strange features our wonderful Guardian Angel stamp…



guardian angel stamp | visible image | wow embossing



Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a good week so far. Today I’m playing with the Visible Image Guardian Angel stamp for a mixed media card.



I love this beautiful image and today I decided to make my angel full of light. For the background, I started with Cerulean Blue Color Burst and spritzed it on my paper. Once it was dry I added the Visible Image Strobes Stencil and used gold spray to give it a light look.



I stamped the angel and the wings on a separate paper and heat embossed them in gold powder that I mixed with WOW Changers Glisten for added sparkle. After cutting the wings out, I attached them to the background with foam tape.



I then cut the angel out, used a light blue watercolor marker on the robe, and added him with a double layer of foam tape for even more dimension.



I stamped the birds included in the set in a light blue and added them as well with foam tape. I used the included sentiment, which I love, to finish off my card.


 

Supplies

Moth Stamp On Fishnet Stencil

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Today’s inspiration comes from stempelfrida who has made a fantastic mixed media card featuring our moth stamp and ripped fishnet stencil, with some elements from our ‘Somewhere in Time’ stamp set…



You cannot turn back the clock and change the past. That’s the way it is, and I think it’s also pointless to think about “what would have happened if…” because who knows if things would have turned out differently again.

With this attitude I managed my life well so far. It has helped me a lot to take decisions. In this moment, in this situation, with this mood and at this point in time you made your decision. And that is good. Fate contributes its part.  This situation will never come back. It is about standing by your decision and moving on. Do not look back, but enjoy the moment and look ahead. If it is intended differently for you, something will happen to you again, someone will meet you, something will happen…



moth stamp | fishnet stencil | handmade card | alcohol inks



For this collage I used a special technique to transfer an alcohol ink background from Yupo paper to normal paper. You use Alcohol Lift Ink Reinker. From this you put some drops on the background, spread them with a brayer, put a paper over it and smooth it with your hand.


The wonderful thing is that you can stamp and emboss on the “normal paper” this way. On the three photos you can see it well:

1. alcohol ink background on Yupo paper



2. transfer on normal paper



3. stamped background



On the background I applied colorless embossing paste through the ripped fishnet stencil. When it was firm in consistency but not yet completely dry, I applied Perfect Pearls in gold. So you can see through the structure, but it has a nice golden shimmer.

I also added Nuvo Drop pearls.




I stamped the moth with Ink on 3 and fussy cut it. I then coloured it with Copics. I shaped it and glued it to the background with distance pads.

I rounded off the corners of my card and the base and knotted some bast around the text.

Storms May Break Its Branches | CAS Card

Hi! Thanks for coming to visit our blog today! Today’s inspiration from Sharon Traynor is a gorgeous clean and simple card featuring one of our favourite stamp sets for Autumn and Winter.: TREE OF LIFE. The sentiment in this set really resonates right now as we all face continued troubling times…


Hello there.


It’s about time that I made an Autumn themed card! Looking through my Visible Image stamps I spotted the Tree of Life set and decided to give it some Autumnal colours. This tree looks amazing in fresh, lush greens but it also looks good in the rich colours of autumn. In fact, you could use it for any season of the year!



tree of life card | autumn | inspiring sentiment


The sentiment is superb for Autumn too as there are usually some squally showers and winds howling to strip the trees of their colourful leaves. It is such a positive sentiment; great for reminding us that there is always hope of new life and growth.



This is how I made this card:


First smoosh some ink onto a craft mat and spritz with water, then taking a piece of acetate transfer some of the ink to a panel of white card. Build up a couple of layers of ink on the panel. Let the panel dry.



Stamp the tree in brown distress oxide ink and emboss it with clear embossing powder. Now colour the leaves in with your choice of marker pens.



Stamp the sentiment into place and heat emboss with a gold powder. Use an embossing pen to colour 3 of the leaves on the tree and heat emboss those with the same gold powder.




Mat the panel onto some gold card and then add it to a card blank. The final touch was to add 3 tiny gold gems under the sentiment.




Stamps used:


tree of life stamp | storms quote | leaf | Visible Image



Other Supplies:

Distress Oxide Inks: walnut stain, fired brick
Distress Ink: aged mahogany
Versamark clear embossing pad
Versamarke clear embossing pen
WOW! embossing powders: clear gloss, metallic gold rich
Promarker pens: yellow, amber, lipstick red, burnt orange
Gold gems
White and gold card



Thanks for stopping by and I really hope to see you again soon.


Hugs,
Sharon xx




We love this card! The tree looks fabulous over the oxides ink and the leaves look gorgeous coloured with gold embossing. Thank you Sharon ♡

Eye Contact Stencil | Vibrant Handmade Card

Hi there! We hope you are having a good week so far. Today’s inspiration comes from Ali Carubia who’s teamed up two of our awesome stencils: Eye Contact and Strobes to create a vibrant eye catching card…


Happy Tuesday


I’m sharing this card today using Visible Image’s amazing Eye Contact and Strobes stencils. I’ve used my Spectrum Noir Harmony inks to colour these.


eye stencil | vibrant handmade card


Tutorial


Firstly spray the back of the 2 stencils with stencil adhesive and leave for a couple of minutes.


Stick the Eye Contact stencil on a piece of 6″ x 6″ white card and lightly ink over with the jet black ink.
Remove the stencil and heat dry the ink.



Position the Strobes stencil so that the centre is over the pupil and then colour each of the rays with the Harmony inks.




Remove the stencil and taking a couple of pieces of scrap card to use as masks, extend each of the rays to the centre of the eye and outwards to the edge of the card.




Use the Bleed Proof White (or white acrylic paint) to paint over the white of the eye with a paint brush.



Reposition the Eye Contact stencil over your card, lining up over the inked up eye and tape down with masking tape.



Apply black structure paste over the stencil using a spatula.

Carefully peel back the masking tape and lift off the stencil.



Put the stencil to water and leave your card to dry.


Stamp the TIME and ‘to be happy again’ sentiments with black versafine ink onto white card and heat emboss with clear embossing powder




Cut out the two sentiments and matt onto black card with a border of about 1/8″ .
When the structure paste has dried, use a black fine liner pen to outline each of the rays and the eyelids.

Use a grey alcohol pen to colour the inner and outer corners of the eye.

Matt your card onto black card leaving approx. 1/16″ border and then onto white card with a 3/16″ border and then onto a black 7″x7″ card blank.


Finally, stick the sentiments onto your card using foam tape or 3D glue gel.

Autumn Leaves Canvas

Hello, we hope you are keeping safe and staying well. Autumn is in full swing here in the UK so it’s perfect timing for Jane to share a wonderful canvas created with our AUTUMN LEAVES stencil with stamps from our co-ordinating ERIKA’S MAPLE set…


Good Evening


It’s time for my fortnightly design team post for Visible Image.


Autumn continues to inspire me with all her glorious colours.



For today’s make I used the awesome Autumn Leaves stencil 


leaf stencil | maple | falling | blowing




maple leaf stamps | autumn | leaf


To make a canvas/wall hanging.



This is what I got up to;


I sprinkled PaperArtsy Emerald Isle infusions onto mixed media card and added water. I dried with my heat gun and applied crackle texture paste through the stencil.



While still wet I added distress embossing glazes tapping off the excess.





I left this to dry overnight and then heated from below to melt the glazes.



Just look at all this yummy texture and glaze..it reminds me of pottery mosaics.



I then blended distress inks around the leaves to add colour.




I stamped some of the small leaves onto book pages and cut them out. I  also stamped and white embossed the sentiment onto black card. To finish off I distressed the edge of the cardstock for extra texture.



Here is my finished wall hanging


autumn canvas | leaves | stamps | stencils



with a close up




and one final shot

Thanks so much for stopping by today,


Bye for now,

This looks absolutely stunning Jane! The crackled texture is wonderful, especially with the glaze. We are loving the leaves stamped onto the book pages in contrast, fabulous! Thank you  ♡

Butterfly Journey | Crackle Texture

Hello and Happy Friday to you! It’s been another very busy week here so we are looking forward to a little ‘time out’ over the weekend, hope you can enjoy some rest too! We have Heather Mitchell here on the blog today with an amazing mixed media card featuring our awesome BUTTERFLY INK stencil and loads of texture…

Afternoon everyone…


My make for Visible Image today is a super simple one but I absolutely love it and am going to be making some more for cards for friends. I’ve used the beautiful Butterfly Ink stencil and one of the Just Be Happy sentiments and that’s it… very sparse for me!




I had intended to do something much more convoluted but sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.



This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_0272.jpeg


I began by taping the stencil to watercolour card. I generally use watercolour card as it holds up to whatever I throw at it which is usually quite a lot! It’s 300GSM hot press card (which means it’s smooth) if anyone is interested!



I’ve then smoothed the glorious and gorgeous Golden Crackle Paste through the stencil and my word, I love this stuff. The Golden paste is so light and fluffy, it’s like stencilling with whipped cream.



The colour comes from Wow Embossing Powders ‘Pop’ powder. A mix of a vibrant orange alongside silver and white grains which gives a beautiful effect.



The powder has been sprinkled on to the paste while it’s still fresh (damp) so it sticks and then I let it air dry overnight which is when the crackles appear. Once perfectly dry, melt the powder… and I never tire of watching the melt!



I had intended to drip colour down the butterfly so it seeped into the cracks but I decided to keep it simple. Instead, I used the new-ish Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Spray to paint around the butterfly and leave lots of white space – which is very not me!



I do love the subtlety of the pale Speckled Egg against the real bright intense colour of the orange and then the little cracks across the butterfly look just fabulous!



The ‘Life is a Journey’ sentiment from the Just Be Happy set is perfect (I thought) for a butterfly and I’ve used Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Spray to add the colour and then given a couple of the letters some glossy accents just as a change in texture.

Why not have a go at re-creating this card? You don’t have to use the Butterfly Ink stencil… the technique would work with any of the Visible Image stencils.



Products used

I’ll be back here with another make very soon! xx




Woweee this is amazing Heather! Our butterfly looks stunning with all that crackle and texture, wonderful colour choices. Thank you ♡

Time | Make It Count

Hi there! We have Sharon Traynor here on the blog today with a vibrant time themed card featuring our COUNT ME IN stencil with a sentiment from our SOMEWHERE IN TIME set..



vibrant time themed card



Hello there. My isn’t this year just flying by? We really do need to “live in the now and make every moment count” so that we don’t miss anything, don’t we?

Today it’s time for some of my Visible Image design team inspiration and I thought I would do something different from all those autumnal colours that are around at the moment, so I created a card with fresh, bright colours.

I’ve been experimenting with a bit of mixed media recently and this was one of my first attempts at making an ‘un-grungy’ (is there such a word?) mixed media card.  The idea is that I will eventually, over the winter, train myself to do a little more mixed media in my CAS cards. I really like how this one has turned out with such pretty colours.


So in the time honoured tradition of my DT blog post, here’s how I made this:

First, wet your card panel with some water and then add some distress stains. As the distress stains are sadly no longer being sold, you could achieve a similar result using a tiny drop of re-inker or maybe some brushos, but I’m sure that many of us still have some stains laying around that need to be used up.


distress stains


Next, take the stencil and add coordinating colours of Luna paste through parts of the stencil.


Cosmic shimmer luna paste | numbers stencil


Remove the stencil and wash it immediately, then set the card panel aside to dry. I love how the paste actually dries in such a random pattern that it kind of looks like an animal print.


Once the card panel is dry (I left mine overnight but it really doesn’t take that long), partially stamp into the blank areas, using some of the smaller stamps in the set, with matching distress inks and distress the outside with a blend of one of the inks.


time themed stamps | numbers stencil


Now comes the fiddly part. Stamp the word TIME and heat emboss it with a clear sparkle embossing powder, then fussy cut each letter separately. Also stamp the rest of the sentiment and cut it into a banner.



To assemble the card, mount the card panel onto a card blank with fun foam, affix the TIME letters and add the sentiment banner with fun foam for a little more dimension.



Doesn’t the Luna paste sparkle beautifully and give that little bit of texture and dimension?



Stamps and Stencil Used:


smashed clock | watch | time | stamps



numbers stencil | entwined | jumbled


Other Supplies:

White card, Distress Stains and Distress Inks (picked raspberry, mustard seed and salty ocean), Luna Paste (stellar champagne, moonlight rose, moonlight ocean), Versamark onyx black ink, WOW! clear sparkle embossing glitter, fun foam.


That’s it from me for now. Thanks for stopping by and I really hope to see you again soon.

Hugs,
Sharon xx




Wow this is amazing Sharon! The stencil looks stunning with the sparkle of the luna paste, and we love the vibrant colours! Thank you ♡

Forest Stencil | Dream Sentiment

Hi there! We hope you had a lovely weekend. We have Ali Carubia here on the blog today with a tutorial showing how she created an amazing card with our Forest Stencil, DREAM sentiment and our beautiful intuition quote…


I thought I would show you how I created my Forest Dreams card using the beautiful Forest Stencil from Visible Image. It took a little while to make but I think it was well worth it 😎.


forest stencil | dream sentiment | intuition quote


You will find a list of supplies used at the end of this post.


And here we go…


First cut a piece of white card 6″ x 6″. Use the blending tool to apply Ocean Blue and Midnight inks over the card so that you have lighter and darker patches. Then add a little Plum Pudding over parts of the card and all around the edges. You could use any dye based ink instead eg Distress inks to get the same effect.


Use your paint brush to flick some water droplets over the card, wait a few seconds and dab off with kitchen paper. Take a round pot about 2″ diameter and place it in the top right hand corner. Wet your round paint brush and draw around the pot. Remove the pot and dab off the water with kitchen towel.


Use your flat brush to gently apply water to the circle in a circular motion and dab off with kitchen towel to faux bleach a moon shape. Dry the card with a heat gun. Use the Sparkle pen to fill in the moon and then tap your pen over the card to add some sparkly drops.



Dry your card again and then add Jet Black ink around the edges of the card to create a vignette, then dry it again.


Your card will look something like this..



Wipe over your card with an anti static bag.


Place the forest stencil over your card and tape them together along the top edge.



Flip up the stencil then press your versafine black ink pad over the whole stencil. Your ink pad need to be quite juicy to get a good letter press, but you can re-apply.


Flip the inked up stencil back over your card and pass it through your die cutting machine using the plate combo used for thin metal dies.


Check that the ink has transferred to your card. If it is patchy then re-ink the stencil and pass it through the machine again.


Carefully remove the stencil, cover your inked up card with clear embossing powder, tip off the excess and melt with your heat gun.


Add white highlights to the top and right hand side of the trees and branches where the moonlight would hit them and a little at the ground between the trees.



Trim down the card if necessary at this stage.


Take the ‘Dream’ sentiment stamp from the Imagine, Dream Inspire set, mask off with paper so that only the Dream words are showing and ink up with versafine black. Remove the paper masks and stamp onto a scrap of white card. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

dream sentiment stamp


Stamp and heat emboss the intuition sentiment from the Night Owl set as before. Lightly edge your sentiments using the blue ink that’s left on your blending foam and matt them onto black card with about 1.8″ border.


intuition quote


Matt and layer your forest card onto white card (1/16″ border) and then onto black card (1/4″ border) and then onto a 7″ x 7″ white card blank.


Attach your sentiments using double sided foam tape or 3d glue gel so they are raised up.



Here is my finished card…

Trio of Christmas Cards

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Wow this week has flown by, it’s been so busy so we are really looking forward to some rest this weekend.. hope you will have some chill out time too! We have Judy Rozema here on the blog today with a trio of gorgeous Christmas cards featuring stamps from our latest release…


Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing some projects made with the newly released Christmas stamps and stencils.


First up is the fabulous INKED HOLLY, one of the new mini stamp sets.

holly stamp | christmas card


I made a watercolor background using Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive DOX inks, and loosely colored my holly with Karin markers. Some extra holly berries (glitter enamel dots) and gold metallic thread are my embellishments. I spattered black ink to finish off the look.




Next up is the beautiful SCRIBBLED STAR. I absolutely love this one. Not only can you use it for Christmas, but it makes a great celebratory card, say for a birthday, too!

star stamp | shaker card


I made a shaker card, stamping the image in Hero Arts Intense Black ink, and then outlined some of the letters and star with a yellow Posca paint pen.


I added my shaker mix of stars and beads. For the frame, I used the stars from the new ICONIC CHRISTMAS stencil, with Simon Hurley’s Sike! ink.



My third card today uses the beautiful SIMPLY SNOWFLAKES and a sentiment from the previously released SENTIMENTAL CHRISTMAS.


I used the emboss resist technique on this one, to give the impression of swirling snowflakes. I stamped my snowflakes with Versamark ink, and then embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder. I then painted a background using Tumbled Glass DOX ink.

A trio of sequins adds dimension and sparkle to finish the main card panel. I backed it with some shimmer card stock in a complementary blue shade, and used white as the card base.



Products Used


holly stamp | grunge | christmas



star stamp | grunge | scribbled | christmas | birthday



snowflake stamps



christmas sentiment stamps



christmas icons stencil | tree | star | snowflake



Thanks for stopping by today.




Wow 3 absolutely stunning cards Judy! We’re loving how different they all are… the grungy feel of the holly card, the vibrancy and shine of the star card and subtle beauty of the snowflakes. Thank you

Christmas Eve | Stencil & Stamps

Hello! We hope you are doing ok. Lynda Hall is on the blog today with a fantastic Christmas card created with our NEW ‘Christmas Eve’ stencil which works wonderfully with our Christmas Eve stamp set…


It’s time for my fortnightly share for Visible Image and this week we on the DT are all feeling festive because the NEW Christmas stamps and stencils have been released and they are AMAZING!


I love to create scenes on my cards, and the Christmas Eve stencil is so perfect for this. I am afraid I got so carried away getting inky that I failed a little on the step by step photos, but I will explain my method.


I started with a piece of blank card, and used Black Soot Distress ink and the stencil to create rows of buildings. I faded them out towards the back rows to add a sense of dimension.  I then re inked rows on another piece of card, as I wanted to layer them up for more depth.



Using the cut away part of the stencil to cover the top row, I applied blue inks to the top half to create a sky. To create the moon I applied darker ink around a die cut circle.


I then stamped the sleigh from the Christmas Eve stamp set, and added stars and embossed snowflakes. White splatters added to the snowy feel, and I used a gel pen to add highlights.



I added lights to the buildings with a paint pen, and edged the roof line with puffy snow and glitter for some added sparkle. I built up the layers with 3D glue gel and added the sentiment from the Santa Claus set, and a message inside using the Sentimental Christmas set.




Supplies




christmas eve stencil | sleigh | roof tops




Christmas stamps | trees | sleigh | roof tops | stars




santa claus stamp | chimney | boot prints | naught nice list



I really love how the new release links so well with last years Christmas stamps. It really does mean the possibilities are endless!




This card is awesome! The layered buildings look amazing, such wonderful depth and the snow looks great! Beautiful sky too. Thank you Lynda ♡

Get Well Soon | Autumn Card

Hello! We have some gorgeous inspiration to share with you today… Stempelfrida has created a fantastic Get Well Soon card featuring our Forest and Bird stencils…


As you can see, I’ve really fallen in love with the set of stencil and mask with the bird from Visible Image. It’s so great that you have both the positive and the negative of the stencil in the set. One can use the set for so many different occasions. Today I have a get well card for you.

 

get well card | bird | forest | stencils | stamping


For my card I used two of the great new stencils/masks from Visible Image. The background is a forest, which I put horizontal. I covered my paper with the stencil and then sprayed two colours of Distress Oxides Spray over it.



When this was well dried, I put the bird mask on it and dabbed the edges with a sponge with distress oxides from the stamp pad. Thereby I always brushed the colour from the middle to the outside. Then I took off the mask and accentuated the contours with Polychromos. In the bird I stamped the writing from the set “Go To Words”.


 

 

Supplies


 

Stencils:


The Forest


forest stencil



Time Flies

Stamps:


Go To Words


sentiment stamps | card making | stamping | every day | go to words

 

Other supplies

Stamp pads: Distress Oxides Ground espresso, Brushed corduroy
Sprays: Distress Oxides iced spruce, spiced marmalade
Polychromos 177, 169






This is such a gorgeous card stempelfrida and we love how you shaded around the mask from the ‘Time Flies’ set. There is a wonderful Autumn feel to it. Thank you ♡

Christmas Stamps | Scribbled Star

Hi there! Gosh it has been such a crazy time here, but we are finally catching up with ourselves and we are back to continue sharing some of the incredible samples made with our NEW Christmas stamps and stencils! Up next is Jane Tyrrell with a stunning card featuring our ‘Scribbled Star’ stamp with our fabulous NEW ‘Christmas Eve’ stencil…

Good morning

Today I am delighted to be blogging my first sample using the new Visible Image Christmas stamps and stencils. You can check out all the fabulous newbies here.  This is a perfect range to compliment their existing Christmas stamps, and they are so affordable at just £5.99 each!

For my first make I decided to make a mixed media card.

This is what I got up to;


I made an inky background by pressing these distress inks onto my craft mat, adding some spritzes of water and then dipping in my card, drying between layers.



I applied crackle texture paste through the stencil and left to dry. You will see the crackle in the final photos, the photo below is when it is wet. When the crackle was dry I painted it with gold metallic paint which again you can see in the final photos.



I stamped the star onto gold card in black Versafine and clear embossed. I then cut out the centre of the star stamp.



I stamped and embossed the star a second time onto the inky background below the stenciled sentiment and then stuck on the cut out gold star using foam tape to raise it slightly.  Using gold ink I repeat stamped the tiny starts from the O Christmas tree set.



I then matted it up using blue and black card onto a 7″  square white card blank. Here is my finished card;


star stamp | christmas card


with some close ups..




and one final shot..





Products used



grungy star stamp | scribbled | christmas


the sentiment from the Christmas Eve stencil

christmas eve stencil | sleigh | houses


and the tiny stars from O Christmas Tree stamp set

These gorgeous new Christmas stamps and stencils lend themselves to any card making style from mixed media to clean and simple.


Thanks for stopping by today.

Bye for now,

Wow what a stunner! The sentiment looks amazing, especially against your distress background. Wonderful design! Thank you Jane ♡

Christmas Stamps | Inked Holly

Hello! Wow where has the time gone since we last blogged! We have lots of catching up to do… we are releasing some amazing new Christmas stamps and stencils which are available to pre-order now and they are already incredibly popular (thank you!). Our Design Team are having a lot of fun creating samples and we are excited to start sharing them here on the blog. We are starting with an awesome mixed media card by Heather Mitchell featuring our Inked Holly stamp and more…


Hey everyone…

How is everyone?  Hope you’re all good.

Hands up who’s seen the new Christmas stamps and stencils for Visible Image yet?!  Oh my… aren’t they fabulous?!  I love the grungy mixed media sets (endless possibilities) and the stencils give you those two classy ‘Christmas’ titles as well as that cute bauble!

I have been beavering away behind the scenes creating some samples for Helen and Mark and this was one of my first…


holly stamp | grungy | mixed media | Christmas stamps


I adore the Inked Holly stamp. I’ve always loved a good holly and ivy stamp but the take Mark has put on this is  fabulous!  So, I began by making my typical inky, drippy background using Distress Oxide Sprays (Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass) and after leaving to dry, I added the white heat embossed segments of the stamp around the edges.



I then had a brainwave to use one of the music stamps, Music Speaks, to add the music as I was humming ‘The Holly and the Ivy’ whilst making this! (You are too now, right?!)  For the music I used  Versafine Clair’s Morning Mist ink pad and wiped any excess off the white heat embossed image.



To add some texture to the background, I used the Mesh It Up stencil.  I have a few little Liquid Pearl bottles that I rarely use and thought they would look fabulous through the stencil.  Having squished a good lot of the Platinum Pearl out onto my glass mat, I added the medium using a palette knife and left to air dry.



The central focal point of the layered stamp was super easy to make.  After die-cutting a circle in watercolour card, I added Distress Spray Stains (not Oxides!) to create a watery effect.  I used the same colours as before but obviously you get slightly different colours because they’re not oxides.  Once completely dry, I heat embossed the stamp using WOW!’s Metallic Platinum powder and then three times more onto a separate sheet of watercolour card.



The leaves and berries are coloured using my Arteza watercolour brush pens and I’ve then given all three a spritz of Tattered Angels ‘Pretty Pink’ Glimmer Mist.  Once dry, I’ve fussy cut each one out of the main stamp and layered the holly leaves at a slight angle to each other using foam tape adding Ranger’s Glossy Accents to the top berries.  Then I  added some red cheesecloth behind the die-cut to break up the background.



Before adding to the card, I drew around the edge of the die-cut (and the background) using the WOW! Freestyle Tool added the same platinum powder.



This stamp is perfect for creating mixed media Christmas cards and tags but you could simply stamp it in one colour and colour it for bright and gorgeous Christmas tags or cards.  So versatile!


Products Used


holly stamp | grungy | Christmas



music stamp | guitar | sound wave



mesh stencil | torn



All the Christmas stamps and stencils are available to pre-order now and are released on Friday 18th September… so plenty of time for all that Christmas crafting!


The design team have been busy making samples to share some inspiration for each of the stamp sets and stencils so keep checking the Visible Image Facebook group for lots of ideas!


Catch you again soon for another Visible Image make… H xx




This is such an amazing card Heather, we are loving all the gorgeous texture! Thank you ♡

Stormy Days | Tree of Life Stamp

Hello! We hope you are staying safe in these testing times and in the crazy weather some of the World is experiencing at the moment. We have had terrible storms here in the UK, with flooding and damage, which seems quite cruel in these already difficult times.

Today’s inspiration by Heather Mitchell is very fitting.. a gorgeous mixed media card featuring our tree of life stamp and the sentiment from this set ‘storms may break its branches but new leaves will always grow’ (written by me Helen!). This stamp set will be featured on our Create and Craft TV shows this Saturday, more details below.


Hey everyone

Today’s card came about by accident really.  I’d made a few backgrounds using the Visible Image stencils, air dried them and then popped away and forgot where I’d put them… but hey-presto!  Clearing up the other day I found them – hurrah!

I’ve used Distress Oxide Sprays for the colour (Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon) and once they were dry I’ve just added a few lines of Derwent Inktense pencils around the Ripple lines.



For the tree, I’ve stamped it using Versafine Clair in Rain Forest and then heat embossed it using WOW!’s Clear Embossing powder to seal it and give it shine. The petals are coloured using Arteza brush pens, which I think are my new favourite product.



For the swirling leaves, I’ve again stamped them using the Rain Forest Versafine Clair and heat embossed them with the clear powder. After colouring with the Arteza pens, I’ve trimmed them and layered a few using foam tape.


I love the font of the sentiment… really simplistic and fits the mood of the set perfectly. Here I’ve just stamped it in black and then heat embossed with the clear powder once more.



With the leaves added, I’ve smooshed some Distress Crayons around the edge before matting onto a shimmery navy blue card and adhering to a 5×5″ card blank.



I wasn’t sure about the card when I finished it… you know how sometimes they can sit staring at you?  But I was looking at it the other day, the leaves swirling around the ripple stencil and it reminded me of the way Van Gogh used to paint his thick swirls onto so many of his paintings. Not saying for a moment it’s Van Gogh worthy, but it has made me love it!

Summer Flowers | Daffodil Stamp

Hello! We hope you had a lovely weekend and are starting the new week feeling rested. We have lots of gorgeous projects coming your way this week, starting with a beautiful summer card by Judy Rozema featuring our daffodil stamp…


Summer is almost over?? Say it isn’t so! I know many of us still feel stuck in March. I know I do frequently. But, I am also ready for cooler weather. How about you?

So before summer disappears completely, I want to share some of my summer creations using stamps and stencils from Visible Image.

First up is my favorite new stencil: MESH IT UP. I love the irregular, non-symmetrical design. It gives such great texture to any background! For this card, I started with heavy, toothed watercolor paper, inked up with Distress Oxide Inks, and swirled with a water brush to soften the colors. I chose two pinks, a yellow, and a touch of green.


Then I stamped the daffodils from FLOWER ART using VersaFine Clair Nocturne. Because of the texture of the watercolor paper, the image lines also show texture. Next came the sentiment from SUMMER WINGS. I thought “reflect” worked well with the watercolor circles of yellow. Finally, I added the MESH IT UP stencil on top, using my MAKE IT ART STAY-tion to hold the stencil in place. I added tiny rhinestones for sparkle.

 

I love this stencil and these stamps so much, that I made another card using the same products, but with different background techniques and colors – and had totally forgotten that it was so similar. That’s 2020 for you!


For this one I used a smooshed background with Distress Oxides and a sentiment from EQUALITY HOPE & LOVE.


Which do you like better?



Products Used

butterfly | dragonfly | stamps

Beautiful cards Judy, the mesh stencil looks fabulous with our daffodil stamp. Thank you

We’re All Mad Here | Stencil

Hi there! We are back with more awesome inspiration here on the blog today. Jane Tyrrell has made some incredible samples with our Wonderland stamps so we were very excited to see what she would create with our NEW ‘Mad Here’ stencil…

Hello

Today I am sharing one of the fab new stencils with such a fun name:

Mad Here


we're all mad here | wonderland | stencil | tea cups | rabbit


I knew I just had to team it with 2 of the fun Wonderland character stamps:


The Mad Hatter

mad hatter stamp | wonderland


and the very cheeky Cheshire Cat

cheshire cat stamp | wonderland


I also used the skull jar/pot stamp from the Alice in Wonderland set

alice in wonderland | stamp



I decided to make a canvas to show them all off at their best.


I had a piece of card from my stash on which I had made a rainbow of colour using distress inks in bands across the card adding a few flicks of water for extra interest.



I applied black gesso through the stencil



which gave me this cool background.



I set it aside to dry while I stamped and coloured up my characters, tea pot and jars with zig watercolour pens. I fussy cut them out and added glossy accents to the cat’s eyes.


I then put my canvas together..


alice in wonderland canvas | mad here stencil | stamps | visible image



with a close up…




and one final shot…




Thanks so much for stopping by.


Bye for now,

Jane x




This is so much fun Jane! The black gesso looks fantastic against the rainbow colours and the characters and elements are coloured wonderfully!  Thank you ♡

Life Is Beautiful | Hummingbird Stamp

Hello and Happy Saturday to you! We hope you can relax a little. We have some wonderful inspiration coming your way over the weekend, kicking off with a beautiful card by Heather Mitchell featuring our Daisy Daisy stencil with our hummingbird stamp…

Morning everyone!

I am loving this beautiful weather we’ve been having lately, pottering around in my garden and I have a few beautiful blooms of Daisys popping out between some foliage… although I don’t get many Hummingbirds making an appearance unfortunately!


hummingbird daisy card | visible image stamps



For this weeks Visible Image DT inspiration, I’ve used two new stencils:


Daisy Daisy


daisy stencil



and Heavy Rain


rain stencil



and overlaid the beautiful Life is Beautiful Hummingbird


hummingbird stamp | life is beautiful sentiment



So here’s how I did it…



I began by trimming some watercolour card to 7.5″ square and laying the Daisy Daisy stencil in the middle.  I’ve given it a good spritz using the new gorgeous Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Spray and then carefully removed the stencil before drying.

As I wanted to stencil over the flower, I used the stencil again to make a mask and secured it in place with some low-tack masking tape.  I’ve then used the Heavy Rain stencil to add the fabulous lines across and up/down using the oxide ink pads shown.



To give the Daisy some definition, I’ve used my Derwent Inktense pencils on the petals, some I’ve used a water brush on and some I’ve left and when this layer was dry, I added a few swishes of white Posca pen.



The Hummingbird was added using a stamping platform as I wanted a good coverage and knew I may have to re-ink it two or three times. I’ve used Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord Oxide ink pads for this, dabbing the ink pads over the stamp, stamping it on the background and then  changing colour.



The sentiment is also from the Life is Beautiful set and has been stamped using Versafine Clair Rain Forest and added to the card using foam tape.



To complete the make, I’ve matted it onto a navy card and then onto an 8×8″ card blank.




I am loving the new stencils and stamps… what’s your favourite?  Ripped Fishnet is very popular stencil and I love it too… but I also love Words of Support.  Great for journal makes and you may have seen my journal page I recently posted in the Facebook group using that alongside the new Bad Day stamp set.


If you’ve bought any of the new releases (or anything Visible Image to be honest!) keep an eye on instagram and the #visibleimage as there is sooooo much amazing stuff being posted daily… and of course, the group on Facebook has fabulous cards and makes uploaded too!


Enjoy the weather while it’s lovely and sunny (I hope it is wherever you are!) and I’ll catch up again soon xx





This is such a gorgeous card! We love the effect of the hummingbird stamped over the daisy, such wonderful chalky texture too! Thank you Heather ♡

You Can Always Make Me Laugh | Stamp

Hello! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration for you this afternoon. Stempelfrida has created a fabulous card with our ‘Daisy Stencil’ and a really positive sentiment…


I love my garden. And that’s why I like to use the inspiration from the garden in my cards. Sometimes it’s the animals, sometimes the colours or the flowers. I was directly in love with the Daisy Daisy stencil from Visible Image from the new release and said I needed two of them. Not to give them away, no. I want to work with one of them and the other one is for admiring it and to pet it. It is just so beautiful. It’s – like some others from the new release – a frameless design.



But this card is not only inspired by my garden. I remembered my Kindergarten days. From time to time we worked with stencils and used a toothbrush to sprinkle the watercolour through a sieve. I wanted to try this technique again.

But first I applied the paint in the middle of the flower with a brush through the stencil. In the middle I used a yellow tone and blended it with orange towards the outside.



Then the spraying technique was used. My water colours are water crayons from Lyra. For this step I covered the middle of the flower with a circle.




For a special effect I wanted to have petals in orange shades behind my motif. So I had to dig deep in my box of ideas, because I realized that I have many filigree leaf dies, but somehow I didn’t have a suitable one for my motif. And so I used a punch set that contains rather spacy objects (called atomic elements). You can see the dies I used on the picture in the material list further below.



I stamped the wonderful sentiment from Visible Image with Distress Oxides. To underline the happy playful look a bit more I cut the stitched wavelines on the edges.




Supplies



Stamps: Visible Image So Much Stronger

Stencil: Visible Image Daisy Daisy

Stamp pads: Distress Oxides black soot

Dies: Poppystamps 1795 Ric Rac Stitches; Sizzix 664152 Atomic Elements
Crayons: Lyra water crayons





This is such a gorgeous happy card stempelfrida! Our Daisy stencil looks amazing with the coloured centre and sprayed ink! Thank you ♡

Faerie Stamp | Forest Stencil

Hello! We hope you’re keeping well. We are back from a little break and excited to share all the latest Design Team inspiration here on the blog! If you love all things magical you will adore today’s inspiration from Lynda Hall featuring our fabulous Faerie stamp and awesome Forest stencil…



fairy card | forest stencil | faerie stamp



I started this card by blending distress ink through one of the latest release stencils: The Forest . I then stamped the faerie from Faerie Magic over the top.



I re-stamped the image on another piece of card , coloured and cut out.



The wings were stamped and heat embossed on Vellum and adhered to the back.



I used Nuvo drops on some of the bubbles for added dimension, and mounted the fairy on the card with  3D glue gel.



To finish I added a sentiment from the Own It set and some white ink dot to add a snowy effect. Yes I know it’s still summer, but us card makers like to get ahead sometimes don’t we!



Products Used

50th Birthday Card | Love & Friendship

Hello! We hope you are well and having a good week so far. We have the fabulous Pauline Butcher here on the blog today with the stunning card she created for Helen’s 50th Birthday, featuring some of our gorgeous stencils and some stamping of course…


Hello there,

I am starting to get my crafty mojo back slowly, and making cards for my relatives Birthdays.

This card was for Helen (aka Mrs Awesome Alexander of Visible Image’ ), it was her special 50th Birthday back in June, so I had to make it good !!!!!


50th Birthday card | friendship | love | stencils | stamps



I created this card, using a selection of the awesome stencils that Mark has designed, along with a couple of stamp sets:

 
Ripped Fishnet stencil


fishnet stencil | ripped | torn



Daisy Daisy stencil


daisy stencil | frameless | gelli print



Words of Support stencil


support words stencil | mindful | strong | compassion



Always and Forever stencil


romance stencil | man woman | love


Go to Words stamp set



go to sentiment stamps | every day | occasion



Alphabetical stamp set


alphabet stamp set




I started with a 6″ x 6″ piece of white smooth 300gsm card, placed the Fishnet stencil on to it and blended Mustard Seed Distress ink through it. I took that stencil away, and added Daisy Daisy onto the card, and blended through with Pickled Raspberry Distress ink. I put this layer of card aside to dry.

I cut another piece of card 7″ x 7″, and using the ‘Words of Support’ stencil,  I picked out the words I wanted to use, masking off the others, and blended through with Mustard Seed Distress Ink, then Ripe Persimmon on the top, I also added a few hearts where there were big enough gaps between the words.

Going back to the first layer I did, taking the ‘Always and Forever’ stencil, laid it on top of the stenciled card, and using Black Soot Distress Ink, I blended through, making sure that it was nice and black by pouncing my blending tool. Whilst this was drying, I used an embossing pen and ran it around all the edges, then put some Wow Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing glitter over the embossing liquid that the pen had left, then heated it with my heat tool, giving all the edges a lovely gold sparkle, I did the same technique around the edges of the layer with the words around it.

I matted both of the layers onto pink card.
 


 


The next job was to use the Alphabetical stamp set, to add Helen’s name to the top layer of the card, I stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink, I then used my white pen all aroung each letter, to highlight it. I stamped the 50 onto a piece of white card, and also the Happy Birthday from the ‘Go to Words’. I cut out both of these, and then again with my embossing pen, went around all the edges, and using the Gold Sparkle embossing powder, heated it to give a nice sparkly edge. I also matted both of these onto pink card. With a slim patette knife, and some Cosmic Shimmer Gold Luna paste, I very gently added a very small amount on top of the stencilled couple, just to give a bit of shimmer. I also added some Stardust Stickles to the middle of the Daisy Daisy, and with some Picked Raspberry and a damp paint brush, I also added a bit of shading to the Daisy.
 



The last thing to do, adhere the layers together onto an 8″ x 8″ card blank, and add the 50 and the Happy Birthday, using some 3D Glue gel.


I hope to get some more crafting done, but we’ve started decorating the house, hopefully I will get away with just directing, and choosing colours, hehehehe !!!!
 


Thank you for visiting, stay safe and stay well.


Hugs,
Pauline xxxxxxx




Thank you so much again Pauline for such a special Birthday card! It really is absolutely stunning! The sparkle and detail is even more gorgeous in real life ♡

Under The Sea | Mixed Media Card

Hi there! As summer is in full swing there’s no better time to create ‘under the sea’ themed cards and projects! Our NEW Ripped fishnet stamp is a perfect fit for this, and Heather Mitchell has combined it with our gorgeous jellyfish stamp and more to create an amazing mixed media scene for today’s inspiration…

Hello everyone…

Today I’m sharing a bit of a busy make using the new Ripped Fishnet stencil from the wonderful Visible Image.


under the sea | card | stamps | jellyfish | fishnet stencil


I started with a basic green and grey shaded background to which I then added the Ripped Fishnet stencil.  Over the stencil I added a mixture of Chipped Sapphire, Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans Oxide Ink.



For some reason (and I have absolutely no idea why) I decided to add these large green bubble shapes which I’m not sure about now.  I used the Mesh It Up and centre of the Daisy Daisy stencils to add some interest to them and splattered them with white Posca pen and indian ink.



The Ripped Fishnet stencil is crying out for sea themed makes and I had to do one to get it out my system so I grabbed the Dare to Swim and Art Rebel stamp sets for those gorgeous fish!  The fish were heat embossed onto a tag I hadn’t made into anything… and the jellyfish stamped and then clear embossed to seal the colours.



The jelly fish was coloured using a mixture of Derwent Intense pencils and Arteza Brush Pens before being trimmed and set aside.

I decided to add some fine-liner scribble around the bubble shapes and then added the Scripted Streets text stamp dotted around for some extra texture.  For a little bit of sparkle, I added the cute shoal of fish in WOW’s Aquamarine powder and they do look lovely and shimmery.



For the seaweed, again I’ve clear embossed over Distress Oxide inks and coloured as I did the jelly fish.  They’ve then been layered on the card using foam dots with the fish woven in and out.



The images have been layered and I’ve added some glossy accents to the circles on the jelly fish and dotted a few around as bubbles.



The sentiment, courtesy of the 2020 Vision set, has been stamped twice to create a slight shadow and I’ve given the large circle the glossy accents treatment to match the rest of  the card.


It’s a very busy card and a bit quirky but I kind of like that!  Here are the Visible Image products I’ve used for the make…



fishnet stencil | ripped | torn


jellyfish stamp | under the sea | fish | weed



quirky stamps | man | face | fish | rebel | mixed media art



script stamp | inky | map | street



eye stamp | collage | mixed media art





If you’re a Visible Image fan, I hope you’ve managed to catch some of the Facebook Lives Helen and Mark have been doing.  Mark has been demoing the new stamps and stencils and showing the design team samples we have all made.  Loads of new inspiration every day on both instagram and Facebook group, and not just by the DT, by everyone… and every one is amaaaazing so do check it out.


I’ll be back soon with another Visible Image make… bye for now xx




This is so awesome Heather! There’s so much to discover and we love all the details! The underwater creatures look fabulous and we love those bubbles full of texture! Thank you so much ♡

True Colours | Daisy Stencil

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Sharon Traynor is here to brighten the day with a gorgeous card created with our NEW ‘Daisy Daisy’ stencil and some beautiful rainbow colours…


daisy stencil | rainbow colours | reveal your true colours stamp



Hi! Today I have a super-duper, ultra-fast make for you, using one of the brand new Visible Image stencils and a sentiment stamp.

I love my rainbow colours, so it was a no-brainer to make a rainbow daisy card. Now because this beautiful stencil is completely borderless (which is brilliant for use with a gel plate), I was living dangerously when I made this card. Sensible people would use a low tack spray adhesive on the back of the stencil, but I do not own any spray adhesive, so I had to hold the stencil down with some low tack tape.

 

 

I just picked a rainbow of distress ink colours and blended them through the stencil, starting at one side and moving the tape over so that I could finish adding the colours to the other side. As you can see, I wasn’t too particular about making this a smooth blend because I knew that the eye would be brought forward to focus on the daisy image as soon as the white pen came into play. Trim the panel to size for the card blank.

 

Once the rainbow colours were down, the stencil was removed and a white posca pen was used to add some detail onto the daisy. Simply draw some lines at the top and bottom of each petal using a flicking motion. Next dot around the edge of the panel with the same white pen for some more interest.

 

 

To finish the card, white heat emboss a sentiment onto a piece of vellum and wrap that around the coloured panel. Add some glittery Nuvo Drops to the centre of the daisy for that bit of bling shine, and once that is dried, attach everything to a white card blank with fun foam.

 

It’s simple, colourful and will bring a smile to whoever receives it!

 



Stamps & Stencil Used:


daisy stencil | gelli print | frameless | visible image



sentiment stamps | seamer | reveal your true colours | perfectly flawed



Other Supplies:

White Card, Low Tack Masking Tape, Distress Inks (festive berries, carved pumpkin, mustard seed, twisted citron, mowed lawn, salty ocean, wilted violet), Versamark Clear Ink, WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder, Vellum, White Posca Pen, Nuvo drops (white Blizzard)



That’s it from me for now. Thanks for stopping by and I really hope to see you again soon.


Hugs,
Sharon xx




What a fabulous card! Your rainbow daisy is gorgeous and your shading looks wonderful.. great choice of sentiment too!  Thank you Sharon ♡

Time Flies | Bird Stencil

Hello! We are back with more awesome NEW stencils inspiration today. Jane Tyrrell has got her hands on our brilliant Time Flies design to create an incredible canvas full of gorgeous texture…


Today I am sharing my first make with the very appropriately named new stencil Time Flies

time flies | stencil | crow mask


I must admit time really is flying by and we find ourselves approaching the last week of July. This new stencil comes with the mask of the bird too, so you have 2 ways of using it. The words and bird can be also be used separately by masking them off but I thought that for a first make I would use the whole stencil to make a really bold canvas.


This is what I got up to..


I sprayed a mix of antique lines, vintage photos and ground espresso distress stain sprays onto watercolour card.



I then added Prima rust effect paste through the bird part of the stencil including the little birds above the letters I and E.



I used gold embossing paste through the “time flies” words on the stencil.



Once everything was dry I added some shadows under the letters using a Vintage photo distress marker.




and I finished off with some splatters of gold ink.




Here is my finished piece..


bird | time | stencil


with a couple of close ups..






and one final shot..




Thanks so much for stopping by.


Bye for now,

Love and Compassion | Mindful Stamps | Stencils

Hello! We are back with more wonderful inspiration for you today. Lynda Hall has combined our NEW ‘Words of Support’ stencil with stamps from our ‘Love is Love’ and ‘Don’t Judge’ sets, which work so well together…


Today’s creation for Visible Image is all about love and uses some incredibly powerful images and words. This card would be perfect for anyone that needed a little support in troubled times.


compassion | calm | hope | trust | stencil | stamps


I started with a piece of mixed media card sprayed with a combination of Dylusions and Distress Oxide spray inks, and I stamped and embossed one of the faces from the new ‘Love is Love’ set at the edge.



On a gelli print scrap in coordinating colours I also embossed the sentiment ‘Love Is’ inside the heart stamp from Don’t Judge.



I added some background stamping for added depth and then applied texture paste through some of the words on the Words of Support stencil. Because the inks are water based, the paste absorbs some of the colour and tints it as it dries- very cool!



To finish I stamped and fussy cut the person from Don’t Judge, outlined the words in black, and added white highlights and some pops of colour to the details on the face profile.

This is such a wonderful card Lynda, and will be so meaningful to so many people. The white embossing looks gorgeous against the vibrant background and we love how the colours come through in the words. Thank you ♡

Shine | Robot Stamp | Fishnet Stencil

Hello! We are back with more awesome new stencils inspiration today! Macarena is here with fantastic mixed media tag featuring an amazing textured background for our Robot stamp using the NEW Ripped Fishnet stencil…





Hello there. Hope you’re fine and relaxed.


Here is my cosmic tag using the Ripped Fishnet stencil from the newest collection and the Robot stamp.








I passed the Nuvo Mousse through the Ripped Fishnet stencil and heated it until it bubbled (that’s how I like to build the texture).


Then covered the whole surface with black gesso and finally smeared with mousses.

Distressed Heart | Mesh Stencil

Hi there! We are back with more wonderful inspiration this evening. Our fabulous Design Team member Ali Carubia is here with a stunning card featuring our NEW ‘Mesh it Up’ stencil with our amazing ‘Organics’ background stamps and more…


Wishing everyone a very Happy Monday!


I’d like to share this card I’ve made using the left over bits from sample making with the fab new stencils.
This is a simpler version of one of my samples💖


heart card | mesh stencil | love is love sentiment


Creating a heart mask – I took a piece of copy paper, folded it in half, drew half a heart and cut it so the heart shape measures approx 6″ x 6″.  I was careful to leave the outer part in one piece for the mask. ✂


I sprayed the inside edge of the heart mask with stencil adhesive – Stick and Spray, waited a couple of minutes for it to dry off then laid it over a piece of white card.


I coloured the heart shape with Cosmic Shimmer Lavender Blue Opal Polish and Bubblegum Lustre Polish, the blue down the left hand side and blended into the pink. Then dried it with a heat gun.


I used the remaining pink polish left on the applicator to colour a scrap of white card then stamped one of the flowers (Random Art of Kindness stamps) in black versafine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. ⚘



I sprayed stick & spray over the back of the stencil, waited a minute and then laid it over my 💜  heart.


I applied black texture paste with a spatula over the stencil. You could use an old credit card if you haven’t got a spatula.


Then lifted off the stencil and lashed it into a bowl of water. 🚰


The texture paste takes a while to dry, you can speed it up with a heat gun.


I coloured the centre petals with a little watered down Lavender Polish and cut it out. ✂ I snipped between the petals then shaped it using a ball tool and the back of a foam mat.



I had some tropical leaf die cuts left over from a previous project which went really well with the colour scheme – Tim Holtz’s Tropical set by Sizzix.


When the texture paste was dry, I peeled off the paper mask and cut out the coloured heart. I sponged a little black gesso around the edge to add a vignette.




I stamped the splats from the ‘Organics’ stamp set in black Versafine ink on an 8″ x 8″ white card blank, working outwards from the centre.



I also stamped the Love is Love sentiments onto white card and matted them onto black card.



I fixed the heart onto the centre of the card with double sided foam and the flowers and leaves with 3d glue gel.


I also used the glue gel to add the sentiments to the right hand side of the heart.




Hope you like it and I have inspired you to have a go. Please come and share your makes with us in the Visible Image Facebook Group 😎

Mindful Forest | Stencils

Hello! We are excited to be kicking off a new week packed full of gorgeous inspiration here on the blog! Now that all the orders for our gorgeous new stencils have been shipped (thank you for the love!), we can spend some time sharing all the amazing things our Design Team have created with them! First up this week is the lovely stempelfrida from Germany with a beautiful project created with ‘The Forest’ and ‘Words of Support’ stencils…

Be mindful with nature – this is the theme of my piece today. It shows a lovely play of colours as you can experience it in the forest.

forest | stencil | mindful sentiment | handmade card


The basis of my card is a Gelli Plate print, which I designed with acrylic paint. To be honest, I didn’t find it soooooo exciting so that I did not use it directly. But that’s the way it is with Gelli Plate prints in my opinion, every single one finds his own purpose – at some point. And when I had the idea with the forest stencil, that was the time for this print. All of a sudden it was perfect. After all, this is something that is part of respecting nature: recycling.


So if you don’t like a Gelli Plate print at first sight, please do not throw it away, but just pick it up! At some point it will be THE right one for your project.





On this print I applied white structure paste with the forest stencil. I usually use an old check card. Sometimes I even cut them a bit thinner.  As you can see on the photo, my paste is a bit coarser.



The word “mindful” I also applied on a piece of natural, fibrous paper, which I tore at the edges. It has a wonderful plum tone.


I’ve made a few different snap shots. On some of them the colours seem so bright. The sun just came through the thick clouds.



And look here, the impression in the forest changes as soon as it gets a little darker. Great, right? It’s really like that. If the light in the forest changes a little then the atmosphere in a forest suddenly appears completely different.

 

And I also have a few portraits for you 🙂

Transform | Mermaid Stamp | Fishnet Stencil

Good Evening! We are sneaking in with another project tonight… Ericka Strange has teamed up our awesome NEW ‘Ripped Fishnet’ stencil with our ‘Mythical Mermaid’ stamp to create a stunning card…



Today I’m showcasing the NEW Ripped Fishnet stencil with Distress Oxide inks


mermaid stamp | fishnet stencil | torn | ripped | underwater theme card


I used Bristol Smooth paper and post it tape to mask off a section of my card. I then took Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers and blended the two colours together. I then used the Fishnet stencil and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide and blended it on top of the two colors.



I didn’t want the background of the mermaid to be white, so I first blended Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio.


I stamped the image with Versafine ink and only heat embossed the portion on the mermaid I wanted to sparkle with Cloud 9 embossing powder.


wow embossing powder | cloud 9 | mermaid stamp


I took a water brush and paper towel and removed the ink on a portion I wanted to be lighter. I then added some Zig Real Color Brushmarkers for added depth to the image and cut her out to use on my card.

I applied foam tape to the back and adhered her to the card base. I added the sentiment from the Wings of Change set to finish off my card.

Wow that’s the sparkliest mermaid tail ever! Absolutely beautiful card, love your choice of sentiment and we adore your colour choices… thank you Ericka

Daisy Stencil | Butterfly Stamps

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Sorry our blog has been a little neglected for a few days, it’s been such a busy week! We have also been doing live demos over on our Facebook PAGE most evenings so check them out if you haven’t already! Our wonderful Design Team have been really enjoying creating lots of projects with our NEW stencils, and Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog today with a gorgeous summer canvas featuring our ‘Daisy Daisy’ stencil with our new ‘Summer Wings’ stamps, a perfect combination…



Sharing the same name as my Granddaughter Daisy, I just had to use this stencil for my first make with the new release.

daisy stencil | frameless | visible image


How gorgeous is that!



I wanted to create something very light and summery so I got out my distress sprays and had a play on watercolour card.


I love that you can use the spray ink left behind to print with too (these are the images on the white
card)




I decided to use stamps from the Summer Wings set to make a very summery canvas.

butterfly stamp | dragonfly | summer | reflect

I stamped lots on inky mop up card and then added some more inks as needed.



I also stamped and cut the words into “banners”



I used this stenciled image.


I stamped my butterflies in place



and then decoupaged the wings adding glossy accents to their centres, and to the the centre of the daisy stencil.



Here is the finished canvas..

and one last shot..



This is such a pretty stencil and would work in so many different colourways and with so many different stamps. A real “must have” for any crafter.


The new stencil release is available to pre-order now! There are 8 more stencils in the release, do check out social media and the Facebook page where there are lots of samples being shared.


Thanks so much for stopping by.

Healing | Bird Stencil & Mask

Hello! We are excited to launch 9 NEW stencils today which are available to pre-order now! We have been sharing lots of gorgeous inspiration here on our blog and on our social media over the past few days and there is more to come! Today we have stempelfrida here with a stunning card featuring the bird mask and stencil from our ‘Time Flies’ set…

After we only just had the new release of Visible Image stamps we now add new stencils. And wohooo, what can I say, there are so many great ones! And I think, there is something for every taste. One of my favorites is a set with a bird. This one I would like to present to you today with a special technique.


Healing – The bird’s soul heals and it can therefore gradually separate again from the undefined background. I have created it with a blending technique from the alcohol ink background. This stencil was just right for this, because it contains both the positive and the negative of the bird.


bird stencil | mask | alcohol inks | yupo paper




My card today was made with alcohol inks. After creating the background I used a blending technique to bring in my motif. 



But first to the beginning. My paper is Yupo paper. If you work a lot with alcohol inks, you know it: The typical, often used great effect of the flow of alcohol inks is especially good on Yupo paper. Papers with closed surfaces are suitable, so that the ink doesn’t sink into the paper and so it remains runnable. Yupo paper is actually a kind of plastic and therefore has a very smooth, closed surface and is virtually the non plus ultra among the suitable papers. The disadvantage, however, is that other techniques don´t work so well on it. These include embossing e.g. (be careful Yupo “paper” melts very easily because it is a plastic) or simply stamping. The surface is very slippery and therefore you not only have the problem with the imprint itself (it is really hard to get a crisp stamp image), but also that there are only a few stamp pads with which you can get a permanent print on Yupo paper.


You can also use encausting paper, which is the second choice I would say, closely followed by some ceramic papers or photo paper. But every paper is different and I encourage you to experiment with different papers. You will discover a lot of different effects.



On my Yupo paper I designed the background with three colours of alcohol inks. Then I used the great new stencil “Time Flies”. To be honest, there are actually a stencils and mask in this set. A positive and a matching negative. First I put the one on my yupo background that has the bird as a blank part. With a kitchen towel and isopropanol (you can also use Blending Solution) I wiped or blurred most of the paint from inside the bird. I also worked with a belnding pen. After it had dried again, I put the mask representing the actual bird on my bird image and made the white border with a Sakura pen. I added a little bit of perspective to the bird with copics by creating shadows around it and I also added details to the bird with them. 






I described above that it is often difficult to stamp on Yupo paper. Also for this the stencils came right for me. With the new Words of Support stencil I added the word on my collage with black acrylic paint. So it stands out a bit as if it were embossed. 




Supplies

The Forest | New Stencil

Hi! We are excited to preview more new stencils here on the blog today. Heather Mitchell has got her hands on ‘The Forest’ and ‘Time Flies’ to create 2 amazing cards…

Hello everyone…

Lots and lots of new Visible Image stamps sets and stencils out (or coming out) in the next couple of weeks and I’ve been really lucky to have been sent some of each to have a play with.  I’ll be honest, I was slightly over excited when they arrived… such an amazing release and Mark has done it again for #teamawesome.

So today I’m focussing on ‘The Forest’ stencil which is just beautiful, and I have 2 makes to share with you.  Once again, the quality of all the stencils is just amazing… perfect thickness… as I hate it when you spend out for stencils and they turn out to be all whispy and thin, don’t you?


forest scene | card | stamps | stencil


I absolutely love the colours on this card and it was so easy to make.



The back ground is made using Distress Oxide Ink Pads in an Ombre effect using Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry.  I then lightly tapped on some black indian ink for a bit of texture and some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pretty Pink for some gentle sparkle… and  the light really reflects off the sparkle on the finished card.



Overlay the stencil and make another ombre effect using Black Soot, Hickory Smoke and Weathered Wood and ensure the inks are dry.



With the background complete, I used the foreground stamp from the Into the Woods stamp set and added Versafine Clair Glamorous to the bottom and their Warm Breeze to the trees.  I used a stamping platform for this as I wanted a real hit of colour so over the colours a couple of times.  When satisfied, I heat embossed them using WOW!’s amazing Clear Embossing powder.



For final touches, I heat embossed the cute little owl in black and then the sentiment, also from the Into the Woods set, onto black card, trimmed and added using foam tape.




woods | trees | forest | stamps



My second make today starts off with a grey smooshed background using Distress Oxide ink pads in Hickory Smoke, Ice Spruce and Weathered Wood.  They’ve also been given the indian ink and Glimmer Mist treatment for extra interest.


crow stencil | forest | scene | card


I’ve done another ombre background on this card too but this time used Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, faded Jeans and Dusty Concord,




I’ve then used Prima’s Graphite Texture Paste (which has a wonderful subtle gritty finish) with  the bird from the new ‘Time Flies’ stencil to create this dominating image over the card.



To finish, I used the little sentiment from the Break Free stamp set.



The fabulous new stencils are available to pre-order from this Friday 3rd July and are released on  17th July… and if you enter the current Facebook group challenge you could bag yourself £100 voucher… and that’s A LOT of stencils! Haha!!


Keep an eye out on all the socials for lots of inspiration.. the Visible Image instagram and Facebook page are full of sneaky peaks and makes.


I’ll be back soon with another new make to share.  thanks for reading!

Mixed Media Wall Art | Butterfly Stamps

Hi there, we are sneaking in with an extra post today! We just had to share this stunning art work by Lynda Hall featuring our fabulous new butterfly stamps and sentiments on an incredible textured background…


For my latest Visible Image inspiration I am sharing a piece of wall art that I have created, featuring the new release Summer Wings stamp set. I love the clean lines of the butterflies, they offer endless opportunities for creativity.




I started this piece with a piece of watercolour card, that I sprayed with water before applying watercolour paint. I wanted lots of lovely texture on this, so I used the salt technique.



This is a simple process where you sprinkle rock salt over the painted card when still wet, and allow it to dry naturally. It absorbs the moisture and leaves the most interesting patterns and texture.



When fully dry, I brushed off the salt and sealed with a layer of matt medium.



Then for more texture! I coloured crackle paste with acrylic paint and applied it liberally with a pallet knife.



While that was drying and doing its magical crackly thing, I finished off my butterflies. The day before I had stamped and gone over the outline with Pebeo Cerne Relief. This enabled me to fill the gaps with Pebeo Prisme paint, which once dry contains beautiful patterns. This does take a while to dry fully. I left mine overnight before fussy cutting out.



With the crackle paste dry, I then really went to town on adding more texture. I added Izink Ice, acrylic ink, embossing powder, texture sand and beads. I also added some stamping detail using stamps from the Shape It Up set (this is SUCH a useful set to have in the stash for backgrounds!)





To finish I mounted on black, and added the sentiment stamps and adhered the butterflies.


<




When framed it makes a beautiful unique piece of art work.

Daisy Daisy | NEW Stencil

Hello! We hope you had a lovely weekend. We are very excited to be previewing our awesome NEW stencils this week! Our Design Team have been having so much fun with them over the weekend! Ericka Strange is kicking off this week’s inspiration with 2 vibrant summer cards featuring our gorgeous ‘Daisy Daisy’ and ‘Mesh it Up’ frameless stencils…




For my first card…


I used the new Daisy Daisy stencil along with Mesh It Up.


daisymain


I started with a gel press print that I had created with Distress Oxides and paint. Originally it wasn’t anything too great, but then I added embossing ink with my blending tool to the Mesh It Up stencil, and sprinkled WOW! Bahama embossing powder on it.


IMG_5658


I love the chunky texture both the stencil and the embossing powder give the panel.

I then took some Bristol Smooth paper and the Daisy Daisy stencil and blended Distress Oxides in  Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, and Marmalade.


daisyside


I cut the outline of the stencil out and stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Soul stamp set in black on the daisy.


face stamp | woman head | beautiful soul

For my second card..


I used the same Daisy Daisy stencil but on a panel I created with Distress Oxide reinkers on photo paper.


ddaisymain


For more information on how to create the background check out my blog post here.


I then used the stencil and applied Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide lightly around the stencil with a blending brush.


ddaisycloseup


I stamped the butterflies from the Wings of Change set in Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide. I also used the sentiment and stamped it in black archival ink.

I love the grungy but bright look the distress oxides have on the photopaper and the different layers.

Summer Kindness | Dragonfly Stamp

Hi there! Wow it’s another scorching hot day here in the UK! So perfect for more gorgeous summer inspiration… Jane Tyrrell has a beautiful card to share with you featuring our new dragonfly stamp…



Happy summer! Yes we have enjoyed our longest day too and the long summers days loom ahead. I live very near the River Wandle as it winds its way back up to London and I delight in my walks along it.

As I walked along yesterday I saw a flash of colour in the undergrowth


I only had my phone with me (very unusal for me!) but I managed to snap a very summery visitor, a shimmery dragonfly.




This leads in perfectly to my latest design team project for Visible Image and I am sharing another sample I made using the brand new stamp release which is released tomorrow!


I made a summery card using the lovely dragonfly from the Summer Wings set:


summer stamps | butterfly | dragonfly | line drawings


I decided to get out my alcohol inks and made a summery background





I cut it down for a 7X5″ card


I stamped all the images onto acetate which I had also added alcohol ink to (I will use the butterflies for another project).



I also gold embossed some of them (sorry no photos!) I decided to use just the wings of the gold embossed acetate dragonfly and gold embossed another on some inky mop up card. I used the 2 together to make a real statement dragonfly.



This was just right for my alcohol ink background.


I also decided to use one of the fab sentiments from the new Equality, Hope and Love stamp set

equality | hope| love | sentiment stamps | definitions



Here is my finished card.

kindness sentiment stamp | dragonfly | alcohol inks



with some close ups..







and one last shot:

I have LOTS more samples to share over the coming weeks and do keep an eye out on social media where mine and my teamies samples are being shared.


Thanks so much for stopping by.


Bye for now,

Summer Wings | Dragonfly Stamp

Hello and Happy Friday to you! We have stempelfrida here on the blog today with a fabulous summer card featuring the dragonfly stamp from our NEW ‘Summer Wings’ set…


Hello, dears!

I have brought my Visible Image day earlier, because yay, a new release of Visible Image is here! It consists of six new stamp sets and they are once again very different from the previous ones. Have you looked yet? Already now you can pre-order the stamps, they will be delivered at the end of this month. As always I was allowed to play with some of them. Today I used the set with the dragonfly called “Summer wings”.

The background for my card is a gelli plate print. Besides blue/aqua tones I also used gold, which you will also find on other elements like the flowers and the dragonfly. The print is not very sophisticated technique wise. The ovals are made by just rolling a spot of paint with the brayer the longer lines are made with wood sticks. 



I stamped the dragonfly with Versamark and embossed it with a powder consisting of different colours of the ocean. I then coloured it with Twinkling H2Os. Do you know those? I didn´t use them for ages. They are water colours with lots of shimmer and give a wonderful glittery look. I found that perfect for the dragonfly. I bent the wings and the body a bit.



The flowers are also stamped with Versamark and then embossed in gold. They are from an older set called “Visometry” and are actually geometric elements. They go wonderfully with the dragonfly, have you noticed? The structures on the wings reflect the flowers. Or vice versa. Then I coloured the flowers with watercolour.

Love is Love | Mixed Media Face Stamps

Good Evening, we have some more gorgeous new stamps inspiration for you today. Heather Mitchell has inked up our ‘Love is Love’ set and is here to show you what she made…


Evening all,

You can’t have not seen the new Visible Image stamps that are on pre-order now… and aren’t they beauties?!  I absolutely love this Love is Love set… bang on perfect for these volatile times in which we find ourselves.




I’ve barely been able to put this stamp set down since it arrived Friday and my head is whirring away with possibilities and ideas for it.

To begin the card, I’ve added some star washi tape strips to watercolour card and gesso’d over the top to protect the tape.  After overlaying the Square Route stencil, I’ve created an ombre effect using Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean to which I’ve then lightly spritzed water over to add texture.



After using a black permanent fine liner to draw in some scribbly lines in the stencil gaps, I’ve flicked on some black indian ink to break up the blue and add extra interest.

Having already measured where the two face stamps would lay on the card, I used the sentiment for the set, Love is Love, down the centre.



The two profile stamps are just brilliant! The words on them (trust, love, eternity, friendship, loyalty, empathy, kindness etc) are so bang on trend and perfect for all types of cards and journalling and I cannot wait to journal with this set!

I’ve heat embossed the profile stamps using WOW!’s Opaque Bright White embossing powder and then used oxide ink pads (Candied Apple, Picked raspberry, Seedless preserve, Blueprint Sketch, Cracked Pistachio and Mustard Seed) to create the rainbow effect.  Once trimmed, I’ve secured them directly to the card before matting onto black card to finish.



Once again, the new stamps are on pre-order now from the online shop and are due for release on Friday June 26th… just in time for the weekend!

Daffodil Stamp | Canvas

Hi there, we are really excited for today’s inspiration! Jane Tyrrell has got her hands on our new stamps and has a rather special project to share with you here on the blog today…

Hi friends, have you seen there is a brand new Visible Image stamp release? It is available for pre-order now and is being released on June 26th. I got my hands on the stamps on Friday to make some samples and I have been blown away by how gorgeous they are. There are 6 new A6 sets and every one is fab. I am popping in today as I just had to share my first sample as it features my favourite flower, the daffodil.


It is one of 3 lovely flowers in the new Flower Art set


Flower stamps | daffodil | tulip | rose

I used it with a fab existing background stamps called Fibonacci


fibonacci spiral stamp | maths grid | background



I decided to make myself a canvas to hang in my studio and wanted a very organic/vintage feel.


This is what I got up to:


I took some corrugated card and ripped it back and also found an old Dusty Attic chipboard frame in my stash which I won many moons ago.



I used distress paints on the chipboard
and finished off with gold Stickles which you will see at the end.



I also die cut some hessian to add a focal frame underneath


I coloured the cardboard with distress paints and added highlights with Tarnished Brass distress paint.




Out came my trusty  “A tale of two cities” book for some book page flowers and I used an inky off cut for the leaves and the centres of the daffodils.



I also added Glossy Accents to the trumpet of the flower head.



Here is my finished canvas, the words which come in this set work so well with the images too.  Daffodils are indeed such beautiful yet delicate flowers.

Some close ups:








and one last shot:



I have LOTS more samples to share over the coming weeks, and do keep an eye out on social media where mine and my teamies samples are being shared.


Thanks so much for stopping by.


Bye for now,

Jane x




This is really gorgeous Jane, the daffodils look fabulous stamped on the book pages and the glossy accents really adds to them. Love the texture of the distressed cardboard and the gold stickles too… thank you  ♡
