The Future is in Your Hands | Smashed Clock Stamp

Hi there! Heather Mitchell is here to inspire you today with an amazing card featuring our smashed pocket watch stamp with some stencilling, background stamping and gorgeous gold embossing…


Hello everyone…

Today I’m sharing a card using the Visible Image Somewhere In Time stamp set.

time - card - smashed clock - future is in your hands

I just love this set as the clock face is brilliant for fussy cutting and layering up using foam dots (which I’ve done here).

So, for the background I’ve used the 1983 stencil and inked through it using Distress Oxides and then turned it 90 degrees and layered up the colours.  I’ve then carried on with the number theme and used the Count Me In stencil over the top.

Further layers have been added by stamping the number stamp from the set randomly around the clock face and then adding the Fibonacci stamp

For the clock face I’ve squished some Distress Oxide Ink Pads on a glass mat and spritzed lightly with water and dried using a heat gun.  Once dry, I’ve given it a little spritz of a gold shimmer spritzing spray (which you can barely see but I know it’s there!)

Before starting work on the clock face, I’ve heat embossed the inky splodge using Wow’s brilliant Rich Gold powder. I love watching it melt… totally mesmerising!

Then, after heat embossing the clock face three times, I’ve secured one full face onto the gold image and then fussy cut the different shards of clock out and layered them up using foam dots.

Some I’m kept at two layers and others I’ve used three. The clock hands are old Docraft stock that I had laying about and were perfect! Having made a hole in the centre shard, they’ve been secured using matching brad that come with the set.

I then decided (rather late on) to heat emboss the cogs around the edge of the card too.  Have to admit, this would’ve been easier if I’d done it before gluing the clock in place but hey-ho, you live and learn!

I was debating which sentiment to add to the card and then realised I had the perfect one!  The fabulous In Your Hands is oh-so perfect!

After stamping, I’ve used a black fine liner to draw squiggly boxes around the sentiment so it’s encased nicely and then I attached these using foam tape.

To finish the card, I’ve mounted it on another oxide background of the same colour as the clock face so it all ties in nicely.


The Visible Image Products I used for this make are…

smashed clock - stamp - time - cogs

inky - hand print - stamp - future is in your hands

|fibonacci - maths - stamp background - spiral

stencil - pattern - 1980

numbers - stencil - count me in

I’m off to cut the grass…

Heather this is such an awesome card! Love this sentiment with our smashed clock, and the gold embossed cogs look so good against your background! The metal hands on your layered up clock look great too. Thank you ♡

All That Jazz | Congrats Card | Visible Image Stamps

Hi there! We hope your week has started well. Jane Tyrrell is here today with a brilliant card featuring our Jazz musician stamps…

It’s time to share my weekly Design Team make for Visible Image. I needed some male birthday cards down at Dotty’s Teahouse, where I sell my handmade cards, so I knew just the right stamps to get out.

and a sentiment from Go to Words

I added some distress inks to my craft sheet; chipped sapphire, tumbled glass and hickory smoke, a spritz of water and dipped in some watercolour card.

Once it was dry I cut it down and stamped the jazz players using Twilight Versafine Clair ink.  I stamped the large stars from Rock Out  and the bubbles in gold, and the sentiment on top in black Versafine which I clear embossed.


Finally I stamped the keyboard in black Versafine for the jazz players to stand on.

I matted and layered it onto gold and black cardstock.
Here is my finished card..

This weekend, I will be at the Stamperama show in Worthing, Sussex!

I will be demoing lots of Visible Image products for Stampers  Grove….. very exciting. Do stop by and say hi if you are going.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a lovely week ahead.

Back soon.
Bye for now,

Crazy Fish | Visible Image | Stamps

Hello! Wow another crazy week here at Visible Image HQ, where has the time gone?! We have lots of amazing inspiration coming your way here on the blog today featuring our new stamps. Pauline Butcher has taken elements from our ‘Art Rebel’ set to create a really funky card…

Hi there,

It’s Fabulous Friday, and I’m here to share something I’ve created using one of the awesome new Stamp sets from Visible Image. Have you seen them ??

fish skeleton stamp

The stamp set I’ve used is Art Rebel

stamps - men - masculine


My background was achieved using 3 colours of Brusho: 2 blues and Lemon, spritzed with water, and left to dry.
I stamped all the fish using red Versafine Clair ink, then used a sparkle water brush, to give them a life like appearance.


On a piece of card I cut off the background, I blended a little red ink at the top, to tie all the colours together. I stamped the main fish with versamark, and used black embossing powder to make it glossy, I also added the bubbles and the sentiment in the same way. I coloured the fish in with a yellow water colour, then used a white pigment pen to highlight it.
