Face Stamp | Beautiful Soul

Good Evening! We have Ericka Strange here on the blog tonight with 2 incredible cards created with our gorgeous new ‘Beautiful Soul’ face stamp…


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful day. Today I’m playing with the new release from Visible Image called Beautiful Soul. I love this set and the beautiful words it contains.

I started by stamping the image on Bristol Smooth paper and gold heat embossing it.  My oldest daughter saw me making it and asked if I could use red on her hair and make the middle yellow. So I took out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and used a variety of pink and reds to color her hair as well as yellows for the middle.

Once I was finished I used a sparkle pen on the hair to give it a little more shine. For the background, I blended Antique Linen Distress Oxide and a light Black soot on the edges. I heat embossed the sentiments in gold and added some sequins for some extra shine.

I love this set so much that I had to make one with blue hair as well.

I made this similarly to the one above. I used Bristol Smooth paper and heat embossed it with Silver. My youngest daughter, whose name is Elsa, saw the first card and wanted me to make her one, thus the “Let it Go” look.


I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to color her hair and decided to add a little sparkly silver embossing to the middle of her hair. I then added some silver sequins I had in my stash to give her a more regal winter look.

I finished by stamping the “Let it Go” with a Concord & 9th set Perfectly Penned and then used the other sentiments in the Visible Image set to add to her.

I created a card using this stamp that I love, with the silhouette of a female face. Initially I thought of a simple background created with the ditress ink and a stencil, leaving her as a focal image, but having all the other stamps around I found that they were all perfect for mix and match, so I started to play with a few of them and stencils too, and now I’m happy with the result 🙂


Here is a video tutorial

You Are Loved | Valentine Card

Hello! We hope you had a great weekend! We were busy in the garden making the most of a rain free Sunday. Sharon Traynor is here to inspire you today with a romantic gift set featuring some clever designing with our really cool jumbled letters stamp and ‘You Are Loved’ sentiment…



This week I have a whole gift set made with the fantastic ‘One Kind Word‘ stamp set.


jumbled letters - stamp - typewriter - you are loved



Now I’m not one of those people that really ‘does’ Valentines day, but when I spotted a neat little positioning trick to make a heart shape out of this text stamp…



I just couldn’t stop myself from going crazy and making a whole coordinating gift set for Valentines day!

So, I made a matching card and envelope with some wrapping paper and a coordinating gift tag


valentine card - typewriter stamp



handmade stamped wrapping paper


I really love how pretty this set looks.


And it is so easy to create these too, once you see how to make the heart shape, which actually is incredibly simple to do!


Just stamp the image once Then rotate and stamp again. (The black lines in the second photo below shows the side of the stamp that I rotated and how it matched up to the first stamped image). Easy peasy!






valentine card - jumbled letters - typerwriter - stamps


To make the card, I stamped the typewriter and the sentiment in black ink, then stamped the heart (using the method  in the photos above) over the typewriter in a pink ink.

The smallest heart from the stamp set was stamped a few times around the border and a little doodling added before mounting onto coordinating pink and black paper, and then affixing to a card blank.

On the envelope flap I stamped the heart shape again and added the ‘You Are Loved’ sentiment.




The wrapping paper was made by sticking some sheets of printer paper together and stamping the heart shape in a repeating pattern all over the paper.


The sentiment was stamped into the middle of the hearts on one row, missing the next row and stamping it again in the hearts of the row underneath, continuing like that on each alternate row until the last row on the paper. Then a smaller heart was stamped into some of the gaps in a regular pattern across the paper.


The gift tag was made by heat embossing onto black paper and fussy cutting out into a heart shape. That was then attached to white card and fussy cut to make to give a white border, and the back of the tag would then be easy to write on. An eyelet was added and the tag attached to the present with black ribbon and a few pink flowers to match.



Stamps Used:


typewriter stamp - you are loved - jumbled letters



Other Supplies:

Versafine onxy black ink, Versacolor 33 pink ink, Versamark clear ink, WOW! opaque bright white embossing powder, Black micron pen, misti stamping tool, printer paper, black ribbon, pink flowers, black & pink paper and white card.

I do hope you like this set and that you will pop by again soon.

Hugs,
Sharon xx

Her Spirit Was Strong

Hello! It’s a rainy day here in Wales, so Jane’s latest inspiration is just perfect for today! Featuring our sassy rain lady and Dream Big quote, this card has a fabulous inky feel with a touch of sparkle…


Good Afternoon,


January always seems to be a long month. Christmas seems long ago and spring still seems a long way away.As I walked down to Dotty’s Teahouse in the High Street of Carshalton, I decided to look for some sparkle and shine and even on such a dull, dreary day I spotted some of Mother Nature’s sparkle and shine on the plants;


rain sparkling on the winter aconite..



on the plucky viburnum flowers..



and on new shoots..




So for this week’s design team inspiration, I went with the sparkling rain theme using the fab Sparkle in the Rain stamp set


silhouette - lady - umbrella - stamp

 

The background is a stencilled ink one using the Grungy Union Jack stencil


grungy - uk flag - stencil - union jack



I added some distress oxides to my card




then stenciled salty ocean and squeezed lemonade oxides through the stencil


 




These photos are quite dark you will see the true colours in my finished photos.


 


I stamped the rain in blue Archival ink



and then I added my lady by embossing her in blue and also stamping the quote ‘Dream Big’


dream big - quote - stamp



dream big - card



You can see that I masked and split the words. The top words are stamped and embossed in black, and the unrivalled in green glitter






Our Christmas/Winter challenge on Facebook runs until the end of January, a couple of weeks left to make something and be in with a chance of winning the £40 voucher to spend! The winner is selected by random so everyone has an equal winning chance.



Back soon.


Bye for now,

Jane x




Gorgeous  inspiration Jane, thank you ♡
Our lady looks fabulous embossed in that pale blue, all shiny against the matt of the oxides in the background. The sparkle of the sentiment really finishes it off perfectly!
