Liberty | Equality | Fraternity

Hello there, we hope you are staying safe and well during these very difficult times. Many lives have been turned upside-down and we are all facing many challenges. Our thoughts are with you all, and we will be doing our best to keep the inspiration coming so your mojos keep flowing to keep you creative and mindful. We have our lovely Jane Tyrrell here on the blog today with a gorgeous card featuring our ‘Renaissance’ stencil with stamps from our ‘Revolution’ set which includes the awesome wild horse stamp. Over to Jane…


Good Afternoon

Today I am sharing my first project with the new Revolution stamp set



My fellow design team members have recently shared several lovely projects using the large musketeer face stamp so I thought I would try something with the other fab stamps in this set.

I also wanted to use the new Renaissance stencil which has so many gorgeous patterns within it.

I had a play with a couple of designs and colours but settled on the one below.


This is how I made it


First I blended candied apple distress ink through the centre of the stencil and then added faded jeans. You don’t need to be perfect with any lines as the inks blend so well together.








I stamped and embossed the galloping horse



I then stamped the flourish stamps in a pattern



I stamped out the words onto snippets of card and distressed their edges. I also stamped the large and small fleur-de-lis onto gold card and also cut them out.

Then it was time to put everything together.


Here is my finished card

Thanks so much for stopping by today.


Back soon.

Bye for now,

Masculine Birthday Card

Hello! Do you struggle with making masculine cards? Nadine Carlier is here on the blog today with an awesome card featuring our ‘Revolution’ stamps which includes the brilliant musketeer collage stamp…


Sometimes we just need a good masculine birthday card! I actually like making grungy masculine cards. It is a nice change of pace sometimes from doing all the cutesy cards.

I used a couple different stamp sets from Visible Image. I first started with some watercolor paper and used a blending brush with some Distress Ink Vintage Photo to cover the entire piece. Then with the Visible Image ‘Square Route’ Stencil around the outside edges of the paper, I added a second layer of the Distress Ink Vintage Photo working towards the center of the paper but not covering the very center. Then with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs, I went around just the outer edge but only about an inch in.



I then used the ‘Revolution’ stamp set to stamp the image in the middle of the paper with VersaFine Clair Nocturne and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then stamped over it again with some Delicata Golden Glitz. I also used the swirly stamp from the Revolution set and stamped around the outer edge with Delicata Golden Glitz.

Then using the Square Route stencil again and some Texture Paste in Copper Crackle, I added some of the paste around the outer edge.



I colored the window and the circles on the stamp image with a Wink Of Stella Gold Glitter Brush and flicked some of it onto the front of my card piece. Used some Distress Ink in Black Soot to edge the card with and matted it some black cardstock.

For the sentiment, I used the ‘Happy Birthday’ Stamp and stamped it with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

It was fun adding all the different ink layers and just randomly adding different mediums to create a grungy masculine card.

Wow what an awesome card! Loving all the texture and layers, the colours are just perfect for these stamps too! Thank you Nadine ♡

Steer Yourself | Car Stamp | Visible Image

Hi there! Heather Mitchell is here on the blog this morning with an awesome card featuring the car stamp and brilliant city skyline from our NEW ‘The Right Direction’ stamp set…

Hello everyone…

I know it’s been a while since I’ve done a Visible Image post and what better way to get back into it than with one of their new Autumnal releases. Now we all know Visible Image are known for being that little bit different from the usual stamp companies, they go that little bit quirkier I feel and aren’t afraid to be a bit ‘out there’.  The new Autumnal releases will blow your mind!!

We all have our favourites on the DT, obviously, and I have to say this one, The Right Direction, is one I was drawn to, whether it’s because my Dad had a black Capri when I was growing up, whether it’s the cityscape or I don’t know… but I am loving it!


I began this make by heat embossing the cityscape using Wow’s Metallic Silver Super Fine embossing powder onto watercolour card.  Using Distress Spray Stains, I dribbled ink to make the sky, wiggling it around and spritzing with a little water to get a funky background.



The embossing powder, once set, creates a barrier between the cityscape and the sky line so you can pretty much go nuts on the colours and it doesn’t seep into each other.



The cityscape was coloured using Derwent Intense pencils, using a dash of yellow to highlight.



To create a road for the car to sit on, I stamped the stem from the Imperfection is Beauty set and used the Intense pencils again for some colour. The sentiment, steering wheel and little cars around the edge were all heat embossed in black and the ‘Driver’ sentiment was embossed in the same silver as the cityscape.

With the car heat embossed in Wow’s Opaque Primary Cardinal Red and coloured using watercolours, I trimmed it and adhered to the card using foam tape and voila!



And here is the the fabulous new stamp set…

A short and snappy post for today but I’ve got lots more makes up my sleeve!


Don’t forget to check out Visible Image over on Instagram and also the Visible Image Facebook Group for loads of inspiration and to see what everyone else is making with their stamps and stencils!


Catch you again soon… xx




This is a fantastic card Heather! Your sky is spectacular and the city skyline looks great embossed in silver against it! Thank you ♡
