Guardian Angel Stamp | Mixed Media Card

Hello! We hope you had a lovely weekend. Lisa Taggart is kicking off this week’s inspiration with an incredible project featuring our Guardian Angel stamp…

Hi my friends, I’m back today with more fun using the Visible Image June release stamps.

I love fiddling about with light in my pictures and the Guardian Angel stamp set really inspired me.

For this creation white Gesso was my best friend! I’ve also used ink sprays and pads and as usual white gel pen and diamond stickles. Oh and also my favourite iridescent gold paint from Golden. It’s great for stamping!

I really enjoyed playing with gesso against the strong colours. I love this stamp set and am looking forward to using it for Halloween!

Have a lovely day!

Till next time…

Guardian Angel Stamp | Mixed Media Card

Hi there! Heather Mitchell is here on the blog today with a fantastic mixed media card created with our NEW Guardian Angel stamp set and lots of gorgeous texture…

Hello…

Today I’m using the new Guardian Angel stamp set… which kind of reminds me of the statue’s out of Dr Who.  No?  Just me then! Haha…




I love this stamp set, it’s so unusual and quirky and not like anything else on the market and I love that about Visible Image products… all that little bit different from everything else.


Anyway, to start this card I cut up a poster I bought from Paperchase that had an old New York map on it, adhered it to card and used a brayer to apply Gesso.



Using Distress Oxide ink pads in Dusky Concord, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire I’ve added stripes of colour before spritzing with water to give a mottled effect.  For more texture, I then splattered black and silver ink before drying.



After much procrastination, I decided to add the Strobes stencil using a large die cut circle.  I wanted a graduated colour so used Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink pad on the centre of the circle, then Hickory Smoke before a light coat of Black Soot.  Looking at it, I felt it needed some light so went around the outside (over the black) using Scattered Straw and while the stencil was still in place I spritzed on gold Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.



To add some interest to the outskirts of the card, I’ve stamped on the little bubble stamp (which I know will be used so much on other projects so thank you Mark for the little background stamps you add to sets!)



I don’t know if it shows up in the photo but the bubbles have been graduated in colour from Ice Spruce at the top to Hickory Smoke in the middle to Black Soot down the bottom.  I’ve used the die cut circle from before as a mask.

The Angel itself was heat embossed using Versamark and Wow’s! British Summertime which is a fabulous opaque grey.



Derwent’s Inktense pencils have been used to add colour.  I love the smooth application of them and the colours are so beautiful.  I opted for the same palette of colours so it echoed the background.



With the Angel and the wings all colours, it was time to start layering up the card.  Having fussy cut the Angel, I added gold wire to the rear to break up the image.  Using foam tape on the wings and the main image, I’ve given the Guardian Angel some dimension and I think looks a bit more dramatic.

For the finishing touches, I’ve stamped, coloured and trimmed the feathers and the dove and secured them to the card (some have foam dots added, some don’t).



To lighten the mood of the card, I’ve heat embossed the sentiment using Wow’s Opaque Bright White powder (this really is the best powder on the entire planet!)



It was then just a matter of adding glossy accent to some of the bubbles and on the dove and crackle accent to the feathers before placing to one side to dry thoroughly.



Here’s some of the products I’ve used… not all as I couldn’t fit them in the picture!





And here’s the Visible Image products I’ve used for this card…


 


And that’s it for today.  Hope you love the new stamp releases as much as I do. Mark has designed them all in the usual, slightly off the beaten track, Visible Image style and Helen has done an amazing job on the sentiments. They are already super popular.. as always!


Hope to catch up again soon… H x

Guardian Angel Stamp Set | June Stamps Release

Hi there! We are so excited to share more NEW stamps previews with you today. Whether you like uplifting stamps, or something a little darker, we think you’ll love our NEW Guardian Angel stamp set!



The Angel image can be used with or without the wings, as these are separate stamps. The doves will look fabulous stamped, cut out and layered up.. as if being release from the Angel’s hands, and the circles will give a magical feel for an uplifting card or project. You can choose to use the word DARK above ANGEL if you are creating something a little darker, giving these stamps more versatility.


Our June release stamps will be available to pre-order this Saturday, June 8th. Release date: June 22nd.



We’ll be back a little later with more new stamps previews! You won’t want to miss them!!


Hope to see you back here later today! There will also be gorgeous new inspiration from Sharon Traynor.

Helen & Mark xx


 

Angel of Peace

Hi there, Jane Tyrrell is back with more beautiful inspiration this evening, combining our gorgeous Angel stamp with our grungy snowflake…


Good Evening

I’m sharing for my latest card for Visible Image today, and as we are fast approaching the time to finish getting our Christmas cards made today’s inspiration is one using 3 sets from their fab Christmas collection. We have an “add some sparkle” challenge over in the Facebook group, so I thought I would go to town with the sparkle today!


I used the smaller angel and the star from the Angels  stamp set

together with the snowflakes from Snow is Falling

and the Peace sentiment and star from the Peace Love and Hope set 


grungy bauble stamp - peace - love - hope



I went for a relatively simple design on plain black card stock as I think these gorgeous images just speak for themselves. I used silver ink first to stamp the snowflakes. When dry I white embossed the stars. Afterwards I used some ultra sparkly WOW gold glitter embossing powder to really make the angel stand out.


I also white embossed the peace sentiment.




Here is my finished card…

I hope that all your Christmas preparations are going to plan…  🎅😄?


Thanks for stopping by today.

Back soon.

Bye for now,
