Jane Tyrrell


Jane is on our BLOGGING TEAM!


Many of you will have already got to know Jane who has been with us for almost 5 years now! We love how Jane interprets our stamps and sentiments so brilliantly, and her compositions are always full of wonderful inkiness and fabulous layers!



I have been paper crafting since the early 1990’s and stamping has always been my first love. I love getting very inky and working and designing with mixed media. I always enjoy experimenting and trying out new ideas and products. Since retiring from my medical career in 2016 I am lucky enough to be able to be to be creative virtually every day.

For today’s make I was inspired by my “not going to happen big birthday plans”. I had a big birthday last Thursday and all the plans we made a few years ago have gone out of the window courtesy of Mr Corona.

We had planned a celebratory trip and a lovely meal out, but as that wasn’t going to happen I created an imaginary “sunshine holiday” birthday on a canvas. A girl can still dream can’t she?  Confused…. well that’s how my creative brain works. All will be revealed…


I worked with these sets:


the birthday sentiment from Lost for Words


sentiment stamps | greeting cards | handmade | stamping


Random Art of Kindness

quirky flower stamps | hope | kindness | sentiments


and the Count Me In stencil

numbers stencil | jumbled | background



This is what I got up to;


I added drops of picked raspberry, squeezed lemonade and crackling campfire distress reinker to a rectangle of water colour card and added water using my distress sprayer.

Once dry I added these distress inks through  the Count Me In stencil

I also machine stitched around the edge of the card



Next I created a circle frame for my flowers using 3 die cut scallop circle edges



I stamped the flowers from the Random Art Of Kindness set onto inky mop up card and cut them out. I decoupaged the centers of the circular ones and adding glitter pen details to them all for extra sparkle.



I then glued them around the circle frame.



I stamped the birthday sentiment onto card and stitched a border. I also did this to a coloured card mat and stuck them together.



I glued this into the centre of the floral circle.


I made a corrugate card base for my canvas by adding a little red ink and then some embossing powders to it for extra detail and texture



I ripped off some of the covering and used a brush to add embossing ink to areas around the visible edges only.

I sprinkled in the powders and heat embossed them from underneath.



Then I matted the finished canvas onto blue card, adhered it to the base and added sprinkle of sequins to finish.


Job done!


Here it is…you might need sun glasses!

Time To Celebrate | T-Shirt Card

Hello! We are back with lots more new stamps inspiration for you this week! Jane has made an awesome card with our NEW T-shirt stamp and ‘Time To Celebrate’ sentiment on a brilliant graffiti background…


Good Evening, I am back showcasing another make using stamps from the brand new Visible Image release.


Today my make uses the incredibly versatile Nothing to Wear stamp set. The t shirt stamp can be used for so many occasions and in so many styles, as there are lots of extra little stamps to personalise it with. I decided to go for a “Graffiti/rock” look (think 1975 when I was a heavy rock chic..yes seriously..LOL).


This is what I got up to


I made a graffiti background using more products that I can list. This was a mix of acrylic inks and sprays plus some paint all thrown in for good measure!



In real life there is lots of texture and sparkle in here!



To contrast with my background I made a white T shirt, adding the lips and word Rock.



I coloured the words in with Zig watercolour markers, added a little red to the lips and my signature glossy accents…they are so juicy and glossy in real life!


I have had my sewing machine out for these makes so I sewed some backgrounds for my sentiment and put my design together.



Here it is

Supplies




T Shirt stamp | personalise | icons | words | rubber | clear



sentiment stamps | handmade cards | greetings | rubber | clear



There will be lots more makes shared in the coming weeks using this fab new release, so do check out the Visible Image Facebook group and social media.


Thanks so much for stopping by.


Bye for now,

Jane x




Wowza! What an awesome background to go with the rock + lips on the t-shirt stamp! So cool! And yes the lips look amazing!!! Thank you Jane ♡
