Rock Guitar Stamps | Son Card

Hi there! We are back with more awesome inspiration today! Nicole [AKA Stempelfrida] has us rocking into the weekend with a brilliant card featuring our ROCK OUT guitar stamps with our SON DEFINITION sentiment stamp…


In the recent release by Visible Image there is a “Son Definition” which is so beautiful. Today I have combined this with one of the music stamps to pay tribute to the live rock concerts and wonderful musicians, which are so much missed in these times.

The musician I stamped with Versamark and embossed him with a fine black powder.

Then I masked off the top and bottom of the card. At the bottom, the border runs through the leg, creating more dimension and making the guitarist actually appear to be standing or even jumping forward.



In the upper part I applied Distress Ink in ‘spiced marmalade’, and in the lower part I used ‘salvaged patina’ using a thick brush. Often you don’t want to see any stripes and approach this very slowly with colouring little by little. Here on the other hand, I wanted to simulate an incidence of light, the spotlight on the stage, and deliberately applied the color more streaky on top.



On this background I stamped the stars and ink splats stamps with Distress Oxides in the same colors. I also applied water drops so that lighter spots were created.


Then I came to a tricky part that you might not notice at first glance. I wanted the text to appear white in the guitarist area. I used a stamp positioner for this and first embossed the text in the center with white, then covered that area with a mask and embossed over it in black.



Unfortunately, the black embossing powder sinks into the card a bit, so I traced the area in the leg with black and white pens.

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!
