Giovanna Zara

Hello, I’m Giovanna Zara, a crafter, blogger and designer from Sardinia, Italy. I started as a scrapbooker more than 10 years ago, and then I fell in love with MixedMedia: painting, mixing colours, materials and styles. I love to make Altered Art, Stamping, Art Journaling and I like to use recycled materials in my projects. When I was given a sewing machine, fabric and sewing become a new world to discover. My style is definitely super colourful, but sometimes I stumble on Steampunk and vintage-shabby, can’t help!

Nadine Carlier

I have been crafting for about 19 years now with scrapbooking, handmade cards, mixed media and altered art projects being my favorite things to create, although I have done and love all things crafty. I would say my style would best be described as eclectic with a mixed media twist. Almost all my craft projects have some kind of mist or paint on them. I love getting messy and trying new techniques. Inspiring others is something I love to do by creating videos and sharing how I create my projects.

Karolina Bukowska

My name´s Karolina Bukowska. I come from Poland. I’ve worked as a teacher and sociotherapist, now working online courses and workshops, technique: scrapbooking, mixed media. Mixed media world is an unseparable part of my life and it’s my life passion. I love scrapbooking. It helps me to capture moments of my family life and to spend day creatively. Every day I create, meet, learn and it creates my reality. I cannot define my style. I love texture, colors and shine. I think, my style is a little vintage and messy, romantic and a little shabby. I love to have my fingers dirty from paints, mists and pigments. I like mixing products to get an interesting effect.

Hi, I’m Karen and I have been creatively crafting ever since I can remember.  I currently teach adult workshops in Guildford where we have a great time making cards, tags, and journal pages using paints, inks, stamps, stencils and more. I have lived and worked on three continents and I have an impressive stash of craft supplies carefully collected over the past 25 years.  I have three gorgeous grown up children who have encouraged my crafty endeavours over the years. I look forward to inspiring you with my crafty creations using the fabulous Visible Image range.

Marzena Ziuziakowska

My name is Marzena, I am a Polish crafter known as Macarena. I am mom to a very handsome 20 year-old and a very furry british shorthair. I love to escape to the seaside as often as I can and charge my batteries by nordic-walking along the beach and listening to the sea calming sounds. I love cats and birdsongs, chocolate, spanish language and all the shades of grey (color), lol. I have been crafting for over 8 years now and it seems a neverending story. Each day I learn new things, techniques, mixed media possibilities. I love to create textured and layered projects mixing different medias and techniques. Can’t wait to play with Visible Image amazing products.

Nicole Diedrichs

I am stempelfrida from Germany. Once there was a time when I said that I would not want to use stamps, because you are so limited with a stamp….. that was more than a decade ago and I still have to smile when remembering that thought from where I am today! My passion for paper brought me to places where I found myself surrounded by stamps and I was tempted….. and fell in love head over heels with stamping. I mainly make cards and most of them are kind of clean – not in the classical CAS definition, but rather neat and crisp. Almost always, there is too much on my cards to qualify for them to be CAS, there is too little for them to be the classically mixed media art and they are too neat to be called altered or grunge. For sure I love flashy colours, which is funny since I started really earthy in tones, but then had kind of a colour revolution. So I guess my cards are clean, neat, crisp and flashy …. mostly! And you can be sure that stempelfrida will surprise you once in a while. Who knows, what Visible Image will bring me on to?

Martha Ponsanesi

Hello, I’m Martha from Italy, 47 years old (really?!…Time flies) I live near Rome with my partner and a bunch of cats. I love colors, stamps, stencils, dies and everything connected with mixed media, art journaling, cardmaking. Sharing this passion with posts, tutorials, taking classes and sometimes giving classes is always a pleasure and a chance to spread the love of being crafty. I’m really excited to be a Guest Designer for Visible Image and share with you what I’ll create with all their amazing products.

Lynda Hall

Hi, I’m Lynda and I live in Hampshire in the UK with my husband, 2 teenage daughters and 3 dogs. I run my own childcare business from home, which keeps me very busy, so crafting at weekends is my way of winding down after a hectic but fun week. I discovered the wonderful world of paper craft around twelve years ago, when I wanted to make a personalised card for a child I cared for. I remember feeling overwhelmed by all the various inks, stamps and other products in the shop I visited for supplies and thinking I’d never get the hang of what to do. Nowadays I think I probably have more supplies in my craft room than they stock on their shelves!  I was soon hooked on card making and learned fast about all the different products. Over time, being inspired by online craft groups, I began to dabble in other mixed media projects, art journalling and scrapbooking too. I’ll have a go at anything and love learning new techniques. I have been a fan of Visible Image for a very long time so the opportunity to create and offer some inspiration as part of the team is very exciting!

Judy Rozema

I have been crafting since high school when I learned to crochet. My first love is now cardmaking, using techniques of mixed media, clean and simple and everything in between, so my personal style is definitely eclectic! I try to create something daily to keep the joy and mojo flowing!

Hey there, I’m Ericka, aka Strangely Creative, and I’m so excited to be a Guest Design Team member for Visible Image! I live just outside of Houston, TX  USA with my husband, two active girls ages 9 & 5, and two Frisbee loving Border Collies. I’ve always loved crafting and making things. I’ve been making cards for almost 4 years and love working with a variety of mediums, and getting inky to creating colorful backgrounds and cards. It has been so fun being part of such an encouraging and kind crafting community and I look forward to inspiring others. When I’m not in my craft room, I’m usually outside in the vegetable garden.

Welcoming Eileen Godwin!

Hello! As you may have guessed from the title of this blog post, we have some very exciting news to share!

The incredibly talented Eileen Godwin has joined our Design Team!!!

Lots of you may already follow Eileen’s blog… she’s such an inspiration!

Hello. I’m Eileen Godwin and have been happily crafting since 2004. After trying all sorts of crafty products I’ve found that Stamps and Inks are ‘my thing’ ! I retired at sixty, in 2008 , after a full time career as a Pharmacy Manager in Retail Pharmacy . It was a stressful job but now I can craft all day ! I live in a small village near Rochester, Kent, with my husband Ken and we share our home with two small doggies whom we adore and four ferrets! When we go on holiday they ALL come with us ‘cos ”We are family!” I have a Blog and run Craft Workshops in my local Village Hall.

It was raining hard here in North Kent yesterday, so I was forced to remain at my Craft Desk all day!

As I’ve just joined the Design Team here at Visible Image it was a super excuse to play!



The beautiful Butterfly from the ‘Live life Now’ set, and one of the stamps from the ‘Visometry’ set as a background feature.




It’s been a super day!

A few lines with a black ink pen and a ruler plus some sequins and white dots.
Job done!



Back soon.
Eileen xx

Wow! What a background for our butterfly! Thank you Eileen ♡  We are so excited to be working with you!

We also want to share a few more of Eileen’s stunning cards featuring our stamps…


You can find a fabulous video tutorial of this stunning card being made over on Eileen’s Facebook page HERE.
The word LOVE is from our ‘No Regrets’ quotes set.

Really beautiful card featuring the inky flower from our ‘Imperfection is Beauty’ stamp set.
The sentiment is from our fabulous ‘Own it’ set.

Mesmerising card featuring our incredible eye stamp, found in our ‘Where Dreams Take You’ set.
NO REGRETS is from the same quotes set we mentioned above.

We hope you will join us in welcoming  Eileen to the team!
Very excited to see what she gets up to with our NEW stamps and stencils…!!!

We’re very excited that Mandi Speers Mance is joining us as a Guest Designer!

We were instantly wowed by Mandi’s style of fabulous clean and simple cards, and her inky painty pieces…

Mandi Spears Mance

Hello, I’m Mandi from Scotland. I am married to Don for almost 10 years.  I have always enjoyed crafting since I was a wee girl.  I love trying all different types of crafts and there is none that I don’t like.  I discovered stamping and paper crafting about four years ago when I lived in New York.   I started off making really simple cards then moved on to mixed media projects. I really love to get messy with inks and brushos.  I also love experimenting and using my stamps on other surfaces such as wood and glass.

Introducing Jane Tyrrell @ Visible Image

Hello and thank you for visiting us today!

We are really excited to welcome Jane Tyrrell to the team as a Guest Designer!

Jane’s beautiful projects have so much wonderful detail and she has a fabulous style…

Jane Tyrrell

Hello I’m Jane from Jane’s Journal and after working for 34 years, until April 2016, as an NHS physiotherapist I am now free to follow my crafting journey.

I have been creative since I could hold a pencil and I have been paper crafting for over 15 years, more seriously since 2012. I am also a silversmith, jewellery maker, keen photographer, gardener and occasional cake decorator.  I have been lucky enough to have some of my cards published and I now sell my cards at a local vintage tea rooms.  I enjoy using different crafting techniques and styles and you will see me create anything from shabby chic, vintage to cute. I make cards, art journal pages, tags, mixed media pieces and altered objects and I love playing with new products. However my first love is, and always will be, stamping. I still own my very first stamp! I discovered Visible Image stamps in their very earliest days and I have been delighted to watch their meteoric rise in the crafting world. Their stamps really offer something different in this very competitive crafting market. I am thrilled to now be joining their team and to be a part of their ongoing creative journey. 

I write a blog where I share my inky creativity as well as my photography. I am totally inspired by my surroundings and by Mother Nature. I am lucky enough to have a little garden studio where I create during the warmer months of the year, surrounded by my flowers and “helped” by my sweet cat Billy.

Introducing Paul Browning @ Visible Image

Hello there! It’s another exciting day here at Visible Image as we announce the awesome NEW designers joining our team!

First up is Paul Browning, who’s very different bold and quirky projects really caught our eye…

Paul Browning

Hi There. I’m Paul Browning. As I’m typing I’m staring at a looming 49th birthday. A year to get used to that big number. Especially when I’m still a 16 year old kid at heart. I live in South Manchester, UK, with my civil partner of ten years, and partner of 17 years, Nick (next year we are upgrading/downgrading? to married status). We share our humble home with the most spoilt cat on the planet, Basil. I drew, read and wrote short stories as a kid. I wasn’t encouraged in art but went on to study photography at college. Hated it when I went to work in the industry. I went on to signmaking, which led me into Graphic Design. Years later, I discovered altered art, altered books and scrapbooking. I have since indulged in almost every craft there is. My present obsession is art journalling. I love a bold use of colour and graphic layouts. However, I’m ever evolving and my clean and simple design past is straying into the messier side a little. I’m influenced by street artists, indie illustrators and urban art. I’m drawn to the weird, the rebellious, the off-beat and the downright outrageous. In my downtime, apart from crafting, you will find me out and about hiking in the Peak District, or at an art gallery, especially contemporary exhibtions.

So let’s introduce them to you, and show you some of their outstanding work…

Corrie Herriman
The Netherlands

Corrie Herriman

Hi, my name is Corrie Herriman and I live in Venlo in the Netherlands with my husband David. I have been crafting all my life but only discovered stamps, ink and mixed media a few years ago. I stopped working in 2010 so I have lots of time to spend on my inky hobby. I spend most days in my craft room creating ATC’s, tags, Art journals, altered objects and anything else that will take paint or ink… Mixed Media is my thing. I am stoked to be on this team and hope to inspire you with my, mostly colourful, projects.

Katy Leitch

I’ve been papercrafting for over 10 years and am totally and completely addicted to stamps, so this is an ideal DT for me!

You might recognise my name as I was formerly editor of Craft Stamper magazine. I now work as a freelance craft designer, writing for several publications and teaching workshops – and I love it. When I am not crafting (which isn’t that often!) I might be found browsing antique fairs and car boot sales or dreaming about my next trip to Disney World.

Dot Leathbridge

Dot ~ July 2011 014

Experimenting, learning from others and teaching are ways that I like to share my passion for inking and stamping.

As a card designer I have been extremely fortunate to also share this passion on my blog, Pinterest, design teams, workshops and, more recently, through being published.

Behind the scenes I am a mother of two teenage boys and I am proud of how they are growing into fine young men.  I work as an aide in a local secondary school in a seaside town called Portland, which is down the bottom of mainland Australia.  Some of my favourite things are: chocolate, the sea, kayaking, enjoying nature, having adventures, kangaroos and koala bears. Life is busy, in a good way!

I believe that being creative is a journey.  My journey has given me many wonderful opportunities and challenges which have been unexpected and ones that I have embraced and am thankful for. Scary at times…but so rewarding! The main thing, to me, is to always enjoy and have fun in what you do.

Shilpa Nagaonkar


Hi, I am Shilpa from India. I am mixed media artist and I have been painting and crafting since I can remember. I love to make Art Journals, Altered Art, and canvas.

Usually my creations are vibrant, lively and colorful. My art keeps me sane. I like to give tutorials to share my creative knowledge and empower others to be creative. I am crazy about all kinds of stamps, and super excited to be part of Visible Image.

Denisa Gryczova

I’m a mixed media freak from the Czech Republic (aged 40). I´ve been working as a primary teacher. I discovered the unlimited mixed media world two years ago. My style is anything but clean and simple. I love to let my imagination run riot and explore new techniques and materials. I’m addicted to creating. There’s no such thing that makes me sooo happy. Diving my fingers into colours is my everyday obssession. Besides the world of art I fancy chocolate, wine, dogs, handbags and snow at Xmas.

Wilma Voermans

Hi, I am Wilma Voermans and I live in the beautiful surrounding off the Swiss Bernese Oberland. Mother of 8 children and grandmother of , untill now, 6 grandchildren.

In summer season we have a lot of tourists and work is very busy. But in the winter we keep it slow , I like to visit musea and go for walks with my dog. Don’t think these walks take me hours, they always end after a short while on a terras with a cappucino…

I have a passion for mixed media, which can be used on every style of craft. The main things you will find in my Youtube tutorials is artjournaling, canvas and scrapbooking. Private I paint abstract style (this because I cant draw Emoji )

I am a design team member for different manufacters in crafty, painty colorland. I am looking forward to working with the great stamps Visible Image offers.

When it comes to crafting I will give anything a go, and my style can range from clean and simple cards to a very painty and inky journal page, with a bit of altered art on the side if the mood takes me.  I can quite easily flip to a new favourite thing to do in a second, so long as I can get a stamp on it I am happy.

I am thrilled to be part of the Visible Image Design Team.

Elina Stromberg

Elina Stromberg

My name is Elina, and I’m a scrapbooker, card maker, paper crafter, and photographer from southern Finland, Vantaa. I’ve been married for 12 years, and we have two wonderful children aged 7 and 9.

I have made different kinds of crafts as long as I can remember. Sewing, knitting, crocheting, and stitching I learned at school at a very young age. I have always loved to paint and draw, and paper has always been my favourite material for different kinds of projects.

Our wedding in 2003 was a kick-start for my paper crafting hobby. When going through stores to find decoration ideas I discovered the amazing world of paper crafting tools and supplies. I did not even know such things existed! I bought my first stamps and started making cards for Christmas and for my friends’ birthdays. It was so much fun!

Summer 2009 I was browsing through internet looking for card making ideas and came across a Finnish scrapbooking challenge site. At that time scrapbooking was a quite unknown hobby in Finland; none of my friends had even heard about it. However, I wanted to give it a try, made my very first layout, opened a blog, and got hooked.  Since then paper crafting has played an increasingly important role in my life; it’s my way to unwind and keep away work stress. The busier my work days are at the office, the more time I try to allocate time to my crafting projects. Being able to take even a short moment to myself, get my hands messy with inks, paints and gesso, and to create something beautiful and tangible is very important to me.

Veerle Moreels
Guest Designer


Hi, my name is Veerle, I’m married and proud mom of 3 teenagers and I live in Belgium.

I’m a kindergarten teacher but I don’t teach anymore. I kind of rolled into the creative world when my kids were young and I had to find a way to take on all the photo’s I made of my children. That’s when I discovered scrapbooking and it all started for me. I started as a scrapbook consultant for a  company in The Netherlands and internet brought me to mixed media and cardmaking today.

I work together with a company to provide workshops here in Belgium and I also demonstrate in shops and at fairs.

I love trying out all kind of different techniques and materials so I end up with all different styles of projects. My personal style however is the less cute style but slightly rougher style. Even though I do like to make CAS cards as well.

Searching for stamps on the internet I found Visible Image and I fell in love with them immediately. And now I’m so happy I can call myself part of the team as guest designer. I’m looking forward in working with these stamps and showing you my projects. Just as much as I’m looking forward in seeing all your lovely projects.

Doreen OBrien

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - You Are Loved - Doreen OBrien

For this card I have used a Technique called ‘Josephs Coat Technique’. It is basically a Resist embossing technique. I have used distress inks and the gorgeous “You are Loved” stamp for this. xxx

Susanne Rose

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Gift Box - Susanne Rose

I’d like to share a stamped Christmas box today. I embellished it with the lovely Poinsettia stamps from Visible Image and two die cut ornaments from Noor! Design.

The box is cut with the Silhouette Cameo out of kraft cardstock and embossed with the script stamp from the Visible Image Revolution set and white embossing powder. I distressed the edges of the box with a scissors. The poinsettias are stamped with a darker red on red cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. Now I only need to fuzzy cut the flowers and adhere the pieces together.

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold Outside - snowflake stamp - Tag - Kim Johnny 2     2015-09-29 Visible Image - Baby It's Cold Outside - snowflake stamp - Tag - Kim Johnny 2

Today I have a bit more winter spirit inspiration to share. I used one of the new Visible Image Christmas stamp sets, “Baby, it’s cold outside”. The snowflake is so detailed and so awesome for any Winter project.

The background is layered with some stencil work, Tim Holtz “Gothic” with modeling paste. Then several layers of DecoArt acrylic paint, antiquing cream and some Distress paint. I used Ranger Super Fine White embossing powder on the beautiful snowflake and sentiment.

Karen Liddle

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Snowflakes & Butterflies verse stamp - Karen Liddle

I created the swirly background using the shaving foam technique, such a fun thing to do!  I then over stamped that with the snowflake stamps from the White Christmas set, and heat embossed using white embossing powder. Then I stamped and mounted the Snowflakes & Butterflies verse (which was written by Helen).

Kim Bacon

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Imagine Dream Inspire - Kim Bacon

Here is my inspirational piece for you today on this wet, and somewhat autumnal day! I have used the Imagine Dream Inspire stamp set, Grunge Polka Dot background stamps and the scribbles circle stamp from the Universal set.

Sue Joseph

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Time is precious - melting clock stamp - Sue Joseph

For my CAS tag today I used 2 inks Memento tuxedo black and festive berries DI (My favourite red).

The stamps I used are Time is Precious, ‘Take Risks’ from the Be Happy Set and ‘Tick Tock from the White Rabbit setLayered and matted onto red and black card with some red fibres and an eyelet to finish 🙂

Lisa Nygards

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Robot Note Holder - Lisa Nygards

Today I have something to show that isn’t Halloween, and it isn’t Christmas either. I have manage to do something else – lol. I spend my weekend at a crop in Norway and got some inspiration for a tag so I just had to play a bit. This is what ”came out” of it. I’ve use the Robot Data Set from Visible Image for this tag.

I started with stamping the numbers on my white tag with embossing ink. Then I used clear powder. Then I started to mist and drip a bunch of different colors on the tag until I was satisfied. I ran the tag through an embossing folder to get some structure, and added a dark distress ink around the edges. I added a bunch of embellishment and colored my hug snug ribbon with mists and alcohol inks.

When the tag was ready and the robot mounted with 3D foam I covered the whole robot with Diamond Glaze.

Teresa Morgan

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Grunge Flourish - Merry Christmas - Teresa Morgan

I am sharing a quick and easy card – perfect for those of us who have a lot of Christmas cards to make and not a lot of time. I’ve used the fabulous Merry Christmas XL and Grunge Flourish from Visible Image stamps.

I stamped the flourish in each corner and embossed with Candy Apple embossing powder from WOW powders. The sentiment is embossed in black and layered onto a die cut oval. The whole thing is matted onto silver mirri card for a bit of Christmas bling!

Doreen OBrien

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Christmas cards - Doreen OBrien

I have a pair of Christmas Cards for you today. I used a distress resist technique for the backgrounds using the Snowflake from the White Christmas set. I have also used the “White Christmas sentiment” and Merry Christmas sentiment. xxx

Susanne Rose

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Cookie cup - Susanne Rose 2      2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Cookie cup - Susanne Rose

It’s my day today to share some inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I’d like to share a “Cookie Cup” today, which is decorated with the super cool “Rockin’ Around” set from Visible Image.

The Christmas tree and the sentiment is stamped with Memento Luxe ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The cup is a cutting file from Silhouette Store. The tree is cut with the Pix Scan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.

Kim Johnny

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Create Your Imagination - Kim Johnny 2

I started off making a postcard, so it is 4 inches by 6 inches on mixed media paper. I added lots of fun layers of Distress Ink and water. I have just picked up some of the micro beads and wanted to play with those too.  Then I was looking at my dies and have this Spellbinders Aster flower that was calling out to me, so I had to make one! I really like how it frames the awesome sentiment by Visible Image, “Create your imagination” from the “This is me”,set. So now my postcard has dimension, which is really fun but I don’t think it would go into the mail system very well as a traditional postcard! So it is a small canvas with lots of color!

Karen Liddle

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Where Dreams Take You - Karen Liddle

The background was created with Distress Inks, and over stamped with the Where Dreams Take You and Plasma stamps. The sentiment was heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

Kim Bacon

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Live Life Now - Ink Splats - Kim Bacon

I started with a Brusho coloured piece of card in shades of purple, lime and teal and added the really useful Bronte Script stamp using teal ink. Just a hint of it stamped randomly but always level. I added some ink splats stamps in purple and teal. When that was done I cut the piece down before sewing it to a matting layer of cream watercolour card.

The tag was cut from another coloured piece of card but this time instead of the big purple splats I used the Live Life Now sentiment. Again I sewed this to a cream mount. Both these mounts were then roughed up along their edges. I added some brads to the tag, my current favourite embellishment!

Sue Joseph

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Funky Background - Mistakes make us wiser - Sue Joseph

I got a new toy at the weekend, I’d had one as a child and didn’t think they were made anymore!
But they do, only the name is now ‘Art spinner’ not ‘Twirl o paint’. All it is is basically a spinning motor, you attach your card on top and drop your ink/ paint onto it whilst its spinning! Each creation is always different, I’ve made lots lol so watch this space!

So for today’s I used some shimmer paints on neenah card and my fave Visible Image stamp Flower INKognitoIt’s just so bold and grungy I LOVE IT! The superb sentiment I used is ‘Mistakes are good they make us wiser’ from the Sunshine SetBoth stamps are heat embossed in black ebony wow.

It seems to be all about backgrounds at the moment which is ideal for Visible Image stamps 🙂

The paint I used have a gorgeous shimmer on them but unfortunately the camera doesn’t pick it up 🙁

I mounted my card onto black and cerise mirror board which really complements the cerise and black in the design 🙂  I hope you like it and there’ll be lots to follow haha!

Lisa Nygards

2015-09-30 Visible Image stamps - Boys Christmas card - Lisa Nygards 4

Ho Ho Ho! Does anyone know if Aliens celebrate Christmas? I have no idea, but why not? I think this guy from Visible Image wants to, if he just can get some snow! Alien is from the Alien Invader Set, Tree is from Rockin’ Around, and the sentense is from the set White Christmas.

I’ve distressed a piece of kraft cardstock with some brown and green ink. Then I stamped the trees with the same green ink I just used. They are misted with water before stamped. When it was dry I splattered some white and glitter white mists as snow on the piece. Added sequins and bling for snow on the ground and some sequins as ornaments in one of the trees. Finally I stamped the sentense and mounted the red Alien with 3D foam and mounted the piece on a Kraft Card.

HUGE ‘Thank you’s’ to everyone on the team for your amazing work!

We love the way that our team think ‘outside the box’ and it’s always so exciting to see what they create with our stamps 🙂  You will find all the links to our Design Team blogs HERE.

Today I have something that I have been working on for the shows at Alexandra Palace over the coming weekend.

As most of you know by now I will be at the craft show doing Make and Takes on the Visible Image stand which I am looking forward to sooo much, I am also doing a couple of the demos in the tent over the weekend too which will be great fun.

Mark and Helen are as we speak beavering away making and packing all the stamps by hand, they amaze me how they get everything done, it is just the two of them working all hours designing, writing, creating, making and marketing all the fabulous stamps they sell, and my hat is not only off to them, it is on the floor and stamped on lol (slightly dramatic but hey why not I am impressed lol) and they are kind lovely friends too…. wow.

Anyway I thought you would like to see some  of the tags I put together for the Make and Takes…

So this is what I will be helping people to achieve…

This first one is an Autumn feel tag, I will be showing how to get the background ready, and all that layering with embossing powder and inks and then that amazing centre featuring the ‘Stay Strong’ stamp pressed into UTEE.

On the blog over the weekend will be full tutorials on how to make these, so that the people who come to the Make and Takes have it written down to have a go at home, and so those who can’t make it to the show so can follow along anyway so look out for that this weekend.

2015-09-17 Visible Image stamps - UTEE - Be Brave -Stay Strong - Leaf - Kim Robertson

I just love the inks and the depth with how your eye starts at the central piece but then travels to the backing, where you immediately see the leaf, but then start to pick up on a the other items with in the backing.

Here you see it from the side angle with the script stamp from the Revolution set used and embossed in clear over white card, then at the end of all the inking some treasure gold added over the writing in places, just around the edges. I love to do this as the raised embossing really grabs the shine on the wax. Once it’s dried you can take a cloth and buff it ’til it really shines, as of course originally it was used as a furniture polish to add shine and colour to wood.

Here is a close up of the tag with a tiny button in the centre, and some thin ribbon through the centre. You also can see how the ink colours blend and how I have added all the layers to build the depth you see from afar.

The stamps used on this one are .

My thoughts on these these two sets… first when Revolution came out my jaw hit the floor as they say! I immediately saw crashing waves with white horses,  and that script is just beyond perfect for mixed media and scrapbooking.Also those of you who like to journal wow, use a white gel pen to write your message over a colourful background rather than black pen on a light colour. It creates a stunning effect.

Then there is the Colours Of The Wind set, well does this not scream Autumn? And tucked within the leaf is a tree… Amazing! I dont know another brand with such forward thinking ideas.I love this leaf and the small leaves around can be used separately, so you can have falling leaves exactly where you want them.

Here are a couple of cards I originaly created with these two sets… Do you remember them?

This was the one I envisioned the very first time I saw Revolution!

And something a little different, look into the background and you will see lots of embossed leaves too, with lots of ink blended all around.

The second Make & Take tag is a christmassy one ..

2015-09-17 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Tag - Merry Little Christmas - Kim Robertson

With it being half way through September already, people have been wanting quick-ish Christmas cards.. Well why not send a tag for people to hang on the tree, or their Christmas card line instead and it can be a piece of art as well as your seasonal wishes.

Most of you saw my little tree I created with the Visible Image Merry Little Christmas set a couple of weeks ago, which is a fun way to create a larger tree so we will have a go at this one too.

The stamp sets I used for this one were.


I am not a huge Christmasy person now the kids are all grown, but I just love the dellicate Snowflake here in the White Christmas set, and as soon as I saw the Merry Little Christmas set I saw the larger tree made with shades of green, or whatever colour you choose… your imagination is the only thing that can choose how your tag comes out but with these amazing stamps the possibilities are endless as a famous man once said lol  (Eddy Izzard at the end of a recycling advert on telly) LOL  Trivia tooo … Haha!

Here are a couple of recent cards made with these sets…

Well I hope I haven’t overloaded you all with too many pictures, but I truly hope I see as many of you as can possibly make it over the weekend. And I would love to see you on the Make and Take table enjoying some time together, whilst playing with yummmy stamps… what can be better….

Don’t forget the extra posts after the weekend too, showing you how I made the tags!

With love and best wishes to all

Hello….. I am Doreen a very enthusiastic crafter living in Sheffield in the UK, I am married to Tommy and have three grown up children and three grandchildren. I have always crafted in one way or another over the years but paper crafting has been my love for about 6 years now, I started making scrapbooks but have now moved on to making cards, stamping and love to dabble with mixed media. I love the idea of creating something from scratch and just adding my own personal touches.

I am Susanne Rose from Germany, mum of two lovely kids and a full time crafter and mixed media artist. I started painting with acrylics when I was about 15 years old. I took a break with “messing arround” after my study, because I started with photography and some graphic design. After my daughter was born, I became a scrapbooker and my passion started growing. Now I love creating mini albums, cards and different mixed media pieces. I am addicted to stamps, stencils, dies, colors and paper! My style is most of the time very colorful. I try to express my mood in every work. I am so proud and honored to be part of the Visible Image Design Team.

I was brought up in a very crafty family so have been crafting in one way or another all of my life, starting at 6 years old, being taught to knit, which went on to crocheting, dress making, cross stitching, designing and making wedding cakes and of course paper crafting.  My all time love is stamping and like most stampers, I have far too many stamps, and still keep buying more, I just can’t help myself….. LOL.  When I’m not at work or doing the usual ‘House’ stuff, I can be found in my craft room, which is my little haven, I love it! I’m so looking forward to being part of the fab Visible Image DT and feel very honoured to have been chosen from the many applicants.

I am a mom who still loves to play! Things that make me happy in no particular order: photography,comic books, stamps, paints, inks, silly things kids do. I have always liked creating, inspiration comes from random places. I enjoy bright colors and flowers,but I have a darker slightly creepier side, too.  Mixed media really is an awesome adventure, so many possibilities! I have no set style and don’t really want one, I like to play with whatever catches my fancy:) One day it is mixed media and the next it maybe all digital play….as long as I am creating, it is a good day and time well spent.
