Summer Wings | Dragonfly Stamp

Hello and Happy Friday to you! We have stempelfrida here on the blog today with a fabulous summer card featuring the dragonfly stamp from our NEW ‘Summer Wings’ set…


Hello, dears!

I have brought my Visible Image day earlier, because yay, a new release of Visible Image is here! It consists of six new stamp sets and they are once again very different from the previous ones. Have you looked yet? Already now you can pre-order the stamps, they will be delivered at the end of this month. As always I was allowed to play with some of them. Today I used the set with the dragonfly called “Summer wings”.


dragonfly stamp | mixed media card | acrylic paint | geometric flowers


The background for my card is a gelli plate print. Besides blue/aqua tones I also used gold, which you will also find on other elements like the flowers and the dragonfly. The print is not very sophisticated technique wise. The ovals are made by just rolling a spot of paint with the brayer the longer lines are made with wood sticks. 



I stamped the dragonfly with Versamark and embossed it with a powder consisting of different colours of the ocean. I then coloured it with Twinkling H2Os. Do you know those? I didn´t use them for ages. They are water colours with lots of shimmer and give a wonderful glittery look. I found that perfect for the dragonfly. I bent the wings and the body a bit.



The flowers are also stamped with Versamark and then embossed in gold. They are from an older set called “Visometry” and are actually geometric elements. They go wonderfully with the dragonfly, have you noticed? The structures on the wings reflect the flowers. Or vice versa. Then I coloured the flowers with watercolour.



       




Supplies

Daffodil Stamp | Canvas

Hi there, we are really excited for today’s inspiration! Jane Tyrrell has got her hands on our new stamps and has a rather special project to share with you here on the blog today…

Hi friends, have you seen there is a brand new Visible Image stamp release? It is available for pre-order now and is being released on June 26th. I got my hands on the stamps on Friday to make some samples and I have been blown away by how gorgeous they are. There are 6 new A6 sets and every one is fab. I am popping in today as I just had to share my first sample as it features my favourite flower, the daffodil.


It is one of 3 lovely flowers in the new Flower Art set


Flower stamps | daffodil | tulip | rose

I used it with a fab existing background stamps called Fibonacci


fibonacci spiral stamp | maths grid | background



I decided to make myself a canvas to hang in my studio and wanted a very organic/vintage feel.


This is what I got up to:


I took some corrugated card and ripped it back and also found an old Dusty Attic chipboard frame in my stash which I won many moons ago.



I used distress paints on the chipboard
and finished off with gold Stickles which you will see at the end.



I also die cut some hessian to add a focal frame underneath


I coloured the cardboard with distress paints and added highlights with Tarnished Brass distress paint.




Out came my trusty  “A tale of two cities” book for some book page flowers and I used an inky off cut for the leaves and the centres of the daffodils.



I also added Glossy Accents to the trumpet of the flower head.



Here is my finished canvas, the words which come in this set work so well with the images too.  Daffodils are indeed such beautiful yet delicate flowers.

Some close ups:








and one last shot:



I have LOTS more samples to share over the coming weeks, and do keep an eye out on social media where mine and my teamies samples are being shared.


Thanks so much for stopping by.


Bye for now,

Jane x




This is really gorgeous Jane, the daffodils look fabulous stamped on the book pages and the glossy accents really adds to them. Love the texture of the distressed cardboard and the gold stickles too… thank you  ♡

Garden of Tranquility | ATCs

Hi there! We hope you are keeping safe and staying well. We have Jane Tyrrell on the blog today with some fabulous inspiration featuring our ‘Random Art’ flower stamps…


Hello! It’s time for my latest design team inspiration for Visible Image.

My garden has been even more important to me this year and the recent landscaping has been a godsend. I have spent many mindful hours outside nurturing my plants and everything is looking so summery now that my summer bedding pots have come into flower.


 

 

 

 


So all these provided my inspiration for my project today, a set of 5 artist trading cards.
Artist trading cards measure 3 1/2 X 2 1/2″ and I make them to swap with my crafty friends and my little granddaughter.

I called this set my “Garden of tranquility”

I used 2 stamp sets;


Random Art of Kindness


quirky flower stamps | kindness | hope | tranquility


and the daisy stamp from Break Free


daisy stamp | smashed vase | break free



This is what I got up to;


I used oxide ink to stamp the background using one of the flowers and archival ink for the “stem” from the ‘Random Art of Kindness’ set.




I stamped the daisy from the ‘Break Free’ stamp set onto some left over alcohol ink yupo and distress inky mop up card and cut them out.




I stamped the “rose” flower from the ‘Random Art of Kindness’ set onto different scraps of inky card and chose the 3 I liked best and cut them out.


I added a little accent of gold stickles to each flower




and I stamped the small words from ‘Random Art of Kindness’ set onto kraft card and cut them into little plant markers.



Here they are finished

with a couple of close ups

and one last shot.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Stay safe and stay creative.

Have A Vision | Vibrant Card

Good Afternoon! Ericka Strange is next up on the blog today with a gorgeous card featuring the large version of our stunning inky flower, found in our ‘Total Chaos’ set…



Happy Monday. I hope you are safe and well. Today I’m playing with some Visible Image and WOW! Embossing to make a fun card.


flower stamp | foiling | embossing


I started off by taking a background I had made previously watercoloring stripes. I then used an anti static tool on the background to make sure there were no oils to attract the fine powder.  I stamped the flower and leaves from the ‘Total Chaos’ set onto the paper with WOW! Embossing ink in my MISTI. I then sprinkled some WOW! Bonding Powder and heated it up until it was shiny.


IMG_4524 copy


There are a couple of ways to use the bonding powder, I chose to use my MINC (like a laminator) since I had it out for a  couple of other projects. I ran the background through the MINC with the Dark Blue Fab Foil.


visionside


The result is a beautiful, shiny blue image.


visiondown


I have stamped the sentiment from the ‘2020 Vision’ set and heat embossed it in Metallic Platinum.


inky flower stamp | leaves | embossing | foiling



To finish my card, I added some blue gemstones. 



Supplies


inky flower stamp | mixed media art | scribble | leaf



eye stamp | rubber | clear | collage | mixed media



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day.




What a fabulous card Ericka! Our flower and leaves look stunning with the foil and your striped background is so striking! Thank you 

You will find more of Ericka’s wonderful cards over on her blog.

Stay Creative | Mixed Media Art

Good Evening! We hope you are doing ok, and staying safe and well. Heather Mitchell is here to brighten our blog today with a gorgeous mixed media card featuring our ‘Total Chaos’ stamps…


Hello…

Today’s make uses the Total Chaos stamps from Visible Image but I’ve omitted the large central flower and concentrated on the other smaller stamps in the set.


quirky flower stamps


As fabulous as the huge flower is (and it really is!) the other stamps in the set are just as fabulous on their own too.



I began by filling a 7×7″ section of watercolour card with Distress Oxide ink pads in blues, and then ripped some scrap paper to create a mask for the grass.  For extra texture, I used the polka dots from the Two Tone stencil and used the same greens on those.



The dinky florals and leaves have been heat embossed onto watercolour card, coloured using watercolours and then fussy-cut out.



Before securing everything in place, I’ve measured where the small yellow flower was going and then heat embossed the scribble using gold powder so that it sat underneath.



I also heat embossed the sentiment on at this point using WOW!’s Opaque Bright White powder and then heat embossed the ‘TY’ at the end using a green powder and coloured using watercolours.



It was simply a case of layering the florals up using foam tape and dots.  As you can see. I’ve used good ol’ Glossy Accents on some parts of the flower to highlight certain parts and a give bit of shine!




Products Used:


Mixed Media stamps | flower | leaves | scribble


Two Tone stencil | circles | squares



A really magnificent stamp set that I absolutely adore. You can find lots of inspiration over in the Visible Image Facebook group and of course on instagram (*top tip* search out the #visibleimage tag for more makes!)


See you next time, H xx




We love this Heather! The flowers and leaves look fabulous embossed, with the touches of glossy accents. Thank you ♡

Total Chaos | Inky Flower Stamp | Mixed Media Canvas

Hello and Happy Monday to you! We hope you had a lovely weekend, they just go too fast don’t they! We have loads of inspiration coming your way this week from our wonderful Design Team. First up this morning is Jane Tyrrell with a gorgeous canvas featuring our ‘Total Chaos’ stamp set which includes our incredibly popular inky flower stamp in a new larger size…


inky flower | stamp | creativity | mixed media


This is a large A5 size set which means that there are now 3 sizes of the awesome inky flower. A tiny version is in the new Accessorize set:


card making stamps | cupcake | flower | wings |rings


and this of course is the original set called Creative Chaos which is an A6 size set.


mixed media stamps | inky flower | background elements



This is the very first card I ever made with ‘Creative Chaos’ back in January 2019:


stamping on book pages | card | inky flower stamp


I used book pages from my beloved A Tale of 2 cities for the bloom and it is my most pinned card on Pinterest!

So when I saw the new ‘Total Chaos’ I knew I just had to use book pages again, as I did for my first make with ‘Creative Chaos’, and this time I decided to make a canvas.



This is what I got up to..

(Apologies that there are not a lot of process photos here as I have been so busy making samples. I just did not get time to stop and keep taking snaps especially with very inky hands).

I decided I wanted to make a background to make me think ahead to spring days and used lots of ink sprays and water on heavyweight watercolour paper. They are a mix of distress sprays; pine needles, mustard seed, wild honey, grass and turquoise Dylusions greens plus some tarnished brass metallic spray.



I cut myself a 5 x 7″ piece from it and stamped the flower to get an outline and placement for my canvas.


I then stamped the scribble stamp over the top in orange archival ink.

Out came my well used Tale of 2 cities and I stamped the flower and 2 of the small flowers onto a page and cut them out. I also added some stamping around the edge of the canvas using archival ink and the other background stamps.

I stamped the sentiment onto a snippet of card, cut it out and mounted it on black card. I added Glossy Accents to the large circle and to some of the circles in the background, I wanted it to appear as dewdrops.



Here is my finished canvas:


mixed media canvas | inky | flower stamp



with some close ups







and one last shot..

Thanks so much for stopping by today.


If you would like to see me in action, I will be demonstrating on the Stampers Grove stand at the NEC in Birmingham on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th March, sharing lots of tips and techniques with the new Visible Image stamps and stencils plus lots of oldies too.


Back soon.

Bye for now,
Jane x




We love how our flower looks stamped on the book pages Jane, and your background is amazing! The dew drops add that extra special touch.. Thank you ♡

Break Free | Smashed Vase Stamp

Hello! We hope you are having a lovely weekend. Pauline Butcher is here on the blog today showcasing our NEW ‘Break Free’ stamp set which includes a beautiful daisy, separate stem, vase, and an incredible smashed vase! Over to Pauline and her stunning card…


Hi There,

It’s my day to share a project I’ve made using a Brand New ‘Visible Image’ stamp set, called Break Free.


daisy | smashed vase | break free | card


This card is  8″ x 8″, so I cut a piece of Bockingford Hot Pressed Watercolour 300gsm paper 7″ x 7″ for my background, I spritzed it with water, then randomly added some drops of ‘Brea Reese’ liquid watercolour inks, in yellow, Magenta, Ultramarine and Ocean Green, I then spritzed with water again, and let the colours drip, wick and merge together. I left this to dry naturally.
 
Whilst the background was drying, I took another piece of Bockingford, and stamped three daisies, using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, then dried them with my Heat Tool, I then coloured them in, using Zig Clean Color watercolour Brush Pens, but I could have used a paint brush and the liquid inks instead. 
I then fussy cut the daisies and added some Stardust Stickles to their centres.
 


 


I also stamped the smashed Vase using a Versacraft pad, onto Bockingford, put  on ‘Wow’ Nice Ice Blue Embossing Glitter, thn heat embossed with my heat tool. I also stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink, again onto Bockingford.
 
Now the background is dry, using the smashed Vase stamp in my hand (not on a stamping block), and using Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink, I stamped all over the background, making sure that the stamping was all going the same way. I dried the background with my heat tool,  I then went over the background with an anti-static bag, and again using the smashed Vase stamp, but this time on a block, and I stamped in the middle of the background, using Versamark, and again heat embossed with the ‘Wow’ Nice Ice Blue embossing glitter.


The background was then adhered to a black card mat, and then onto a yellow card mat, and adhered to the 8″ white card blank.
 


 


I stamped three stems onto the background, using a green Oxide Ink, ready for the daisies to sit on, and using the smashed Vase image, that was heat embossed onto the Bockingford, I fussy cut the vase, and some of the smashed pieces, and adhered them to the main image, using 3D Glue Gel, to give dimension. I also added the daisies, and cut the sentiment into an arrow shape, and added that to the card with 3D glue gel.


To finish off, I added some random Stickles around the smashed bits, used a Sukura sparkle pen randomly over the inky background, then used Glossy Accents on all the vase pieces.
 



Stamps Used:

Thank you for visiting.

Hugs

Pauline this is amazing! The smashed vase looks fabulous with the ice blue embossing and glossy accents. Your daisies look beautiful and your background is gorgeous.. Thank you ♡

Beautiful Chaos | Mixed Media Card

Good Evening! We have the fabulous Pauline here to inspire you with a gorgeous card featuring our hummingbird and creative chaos stamps…

Hi there,
 
I’m here with my latest project for Visible Image Stamps.
 
Today it’s a 7″ x 7″  mixed media card…

hummingbird stamp | mixed media card




Featuring..


Creative Chaos stamp set


grungy flower stamp



Life is Beautiful stamp set


hummingbird stamp



and the Meshing Around stencil


mesh stencil

 

 
My background was an A4 piece of Glossy Card, using Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean distress inks to colour it, adding the ink separately onto my glass mat, spritzing with water, then pulling the card through it, adding more ink to cover the card as necessary.
 




I cut a piece off this coloured card, 6″ x 6″, then using the circle filler stamps from both sets, I stamped using the same Distress ink colours, as before.
 




I placed the stencil over the inked background, and added Cosmic Shimmer, Moonlight Pearl Luna paste through it. While this was drying, I stamped the Hummingbird with a Wow Embossing Pad, onto heat resistant acetate, and used Wow Ebony Embossing Powder, and heated. I fussy cut this, and used Acrylic paint on the reverse, and left to dry.



On a piece of Bockingford hot press water colour paper, I stamped the flowers, three large and three small, with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and heat embossed them with Wow Clear Holographic EP, I fussy cut them, then coloured them with Distress Ink, I also stamped some stalks, and embossed them again with the holographic EP, and fussy cut these too.
 



On the left over coloured glossy card, I stamped the sentiments with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and heat embossed them with Wow Holographic EP, then fussy cut them too.



I adhered all the components to the card, using 3D glue Gel for added dimension, then using a white pen, I highlighted the bird, and added Stickes for that extra bling.
 



Hugs,
Pauline xxxxx 




Pauline this is absolutely stunning! The translucent texture looks fabulous and the hummingbird is gorgeous on the acetate. The flowers look so gorgeous too! Thank you ♡

Life is Beautiful | Handmade Card

Good Evening! We hope Monday has been gentle with you. Nadine Carlier is here to inspire you today with a gorgeous floral card…

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a bright and inspirational card I made. I had a lot of fun making this card and I love how it turned out.

 

 

Below is a video tutorial showing how I created my card.

 

Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the bell so you will get updates when I post a new video.

 

 

I love the Visible Image ‘Random Art Of Kindness’ Stamp Set, actually I love all of their stamps. The only thing that I don’t like, is how hard it is to choose which stamps I want to use.

 

Check out the close-ups of my card below….

Just Be Happy | Flowers & Butterflies | Stamps

Hi there! We have our lovely Guest Designer Macarena here tonight with a gorgeous card she made me (Helen) for my Birthday! This beautiful textured card features our stunning ‘Creative Chaos’ inky flower stamp with our ‘Just Be Happy’ sentiment…

 

This is another project for Visible Image GDT.
Besides it’s made especially for a lovely lady’s B-day.

 

just be happy - sentiment stamp - flower

 

I made this textured background using the ‘Butterfly Ink’ stencil
and my fave Nuvo Expanding Mousse which makes amazing job
when heated up untill bubbles. Love this texture.

Then I stamped some circles from ‘Live In The Moment’ set
and applied my another fave product: Stampendous Enamel Powder.
Love the results it gives, thick and a bit industrial/steampunk.
I also added it to some edge parts of the butterfly wings.
Then I stamped speckles from the ‘Just Breathe’ stamp set.

 

The rest was just a composition of my focal point.
I decided to add some vibrant colors to this shady background.
I really like the final effect and hope she’ll like it too 🙂

 

 

 

 



Products Used:

just be happy - stamp


inky flower stamp


grungy butterfly stamps


dragonfly stamp - ripple


inky - butterfly - stencil - grunge


Have a lovely day!


This is absolutely stunning Macarena! We love all the texture and layers, just beautiful! Thank you so much again.. ♡

Sunshine on a Rainy Day | Sentiment Stamp

Hello! We have Stempelfrida here on the blog today with a gorgeous summery card featuring our ‘Sunshine on a Rainy Day’ sentiment…


I sincerely hope that your day was sunny in your heart, but if it wasn’t, I’ll send you some sun with my card.

When I saw the flowers from Visible Image, I fell in love with them immediately. And the font of the text is sooooo beautiful, isn’t it? It fits so well and is so nice and playful.

It is my second card for the guest design team of Visible Image.

 

Unfortunately I didn’t think about taking photos in between when I created the background, because I used a special effect. You need glossy paper and Distress Oxides. With these I have stained diligently and worked with water. I also stamped circles in different colours. And then comes the big secret: With a little sponge you apply a little Micro Glaze and rub away the chalk-like pigments of the Oxides. The gloss of the paper comes through again and everything shines beautifully. Maybe I can take a snapshot before and after the next time.



 

And then a Faux-Pas happened to me! Since I was not yet clear before stamping the text, with which colour I would paint it and whether at all, I first cheerfully stamped with Versafine … and then decided that I would like to make it a bit colourful. And preferably with Copics, sigh! Well, then I had to be very careful at the lines and with my markers and I had to stripe off black ink again and again. For those who are not so familiar with it: Versafine doesn’t work with alcohol-based marker, they dissolve the lines. That is why I usually stamp these things with Memento before colouring them. 




That’s how I did it with the flowers and the butterfly. I first stamped them with Memento and then coloured them with Copics and cut out by hand. I bent the butterfly on its wings to make it pop.








For the base card I stamped the structures with Versamark (the edges were sufficient) and embossed them in white.

 

I scribbled at bit on the edges and added Nuvo Drops. I mounted everything with distance pads.

 

Stamps Used:


sentiment stamps


butterfly - stamps - grunge


organics - inky - ink splat - stamps


flower stamp - inky - creativity

 

Other Supplies:

 

stamp pads: Distress Oxides spun sugar, dried marigold, picked raspberry; Versafine onyx black; Memento tuxedo black; Versamark
embossing powder: Stampendous! detail white 
Copics R81, R83, R85, R89, Y13, Y19, YR16, RV04, RV09
Copic Multiliner 0.5
Signo Marker weiß
Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss simply white, english mustard, carnation pink
Glossy Accents
Judy Kins Micro Glaze

Art Has No Rules | Mixed Media Card

Hello! We have Lisa Taggart here on the blog today with an incredible mixed media card featuring our amazing Creative Chaos flower stamp…


Hello lovely friends today I thought I would share another project using some very Inspiring stamp sets from Visible Image. There’s lots of stamping, a little paper piecing and some background fun using Acrylic paint and crackle mediums.



inky flower stamp | mixed media card


I’ve used the following stamp sets:




quirky flower stamps



 

This is the scrap I used to begin. I then added texture by brayering further layers of acrylic paint.






I then added crackle mediums and more ink including ink splatters.






I began the stamping using elements from across the sets.




I also stamped on to scrap card to colour and cut out later.






I layered up the elements placing three of the flower images together to create a larger flower. I also added some doodling using white and gold gel pens and added the sentiment.





Lisa xx



Wow! An incredible project Lisa.. we are drooling over all that crackle and texture!! Love how you used the flower too, making it bloom.. thank you ♡

 

Breathe | Flowers | Thorax Stamp

Hello! Lisa Taggart is here on our blog this evening with an absolutely stunning project featuring our NEW thorax anatomy stamp  and.. yes… flowers!


Hello lovelies !! I’m back from my hols and itching to get creative again. And yes I’ve finally got my hands on the Visible Image June 2019 new release stamps and what stunning beauties they are!


The first new set I’ve gone for is certainly one for Halloween, but it can be used in other ways too.


Just Breathe


anatomy stamp - ribs - breathe



I’ve created an mdf tag.. combined the set with some old favourites for a more uplifting 3D design.


mixed media mdd tag - Visible Image stamps



Visible Image stamps



Create it


flower stamps - background



Ahead of our Time


time stamps - spiral - dr who - clockwork orange



Cosmic Skies stencil


cosmic skies stencil



The steps:


Using watercolour card from Crafters Companion and Jane Davenport watercolours and a water spritzer I created a background.



Next I coloured a separate small piece of watercolour card and stamped the main stamp on to scrap card. I then cut out a mask shape for the top half of the chest cavity.



Taking the smallest flower stamps from the ‘create it’ set I heat embossed them in white randomly on to the painted card. Using the mask, I drew around it on top of the embossed flowers and cut out the shape. I then coloured the flowers using posca paint pens.






I adhered the first background on to an MDT tag. I then stencilled gold paint on top through the stencil and then stuck down the flower panel. Finally I used the mask to cover the flowers and added black splatters using black acrylic ink.












I used three small stamps for the background: the leaves from the ‘create it’set; the birds from the ‘ahead of our time’ set and the ink dots from ‘just breathe’. After the first layer I hand drew lines in white and fluorescent yellow and softened using well diluted white gesso. I hoped to depict sun or energy rays! After this I stamped the birds again on top and highlighted some of them in white gel pen.






I stamped and heat embossed in white some more flowers. I coloured them, cut them out and shaped them.



I stamped the chest and removed the areas showing the back bones using a craft knife. I coloured this and cut it out.









I adhered the loose flowers on top of the flat flower vase and then assembled the chest bones on top. This was slightly domed and adhered down the sides only. I also stuck flowers between the bones and down the rest of the background.

Finally I stamped the sentiment and stuck the tag to its base which was also painted. I edged the whole thing using dark ink.









Here’s a short video for close ups.


It’s a bit different that’s for sure!

Lisa xx




Lisa this is amazing! The ribs look superb fussy cut and coloured.. and the flowers totally transform it! Gorgeous work.. thank you ♡

 

Just Smile | Vibrant Card | Inky Flower Stamp

Hello! We are thrilled to welcome Ericka Strange to the blog with her first post as a Guest Designer! Ericka has created an absolutely stunning card with the beautiful inky flower stamp from our ‘Creative Chaos’ set…


I hope your day is going well, I’m so excited to share my first project as a Guest Designer for Visible Image. Let me just start by saying I’m a huge fan and I love their unique images and awesome sentiments! All the products blend so well together, inspiration is easy to find.



Ok on to my card


mainflower



I love this flower and this stencil is so fun to play with. I started out by blending Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide on Bristol Smooth paper. I added Mustard Seed Distress Oxide along the edge to make it a little darker. I placed the Collision Stencil and then blended Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide on top.


blendingback



I set the panel aside to dry and then stamped the inky flower stamp from Creative Chaos on Copic friendly paper and used RV91, RV63, RV55, and RV66 to color it in. I fussy cut around the flower portion and used a black marker to  color the edges of the image to give it a crisp look. I stamped the flower again on my blended panel in Versafine ink and clear heat embossed it. I wanted to make sure that all the beautiful details of the flower were still on my panel.


fussyflower



I used 3D Zots from Therm-o-web to adhere the flower on top of the stamped image to add dimension to the card. I also added additional stamped images from the Creative Chaos set along the edges using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide and Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink.


placeflower



I added a sentiment from the So Much Stronger set and white heat embossed it on black cardstock. I love the scripty look and the sentiment is perfect.


sentimentclose



I adhered the sentiment with some foam tape and used clear droplets on the card as an extra embellishment.

Birthday Card | Party Dress | Flower Stamp | Visible Image

Hello! We have Sharon Traynor on the blog today with a card that features our gorgeous Creative Chaos flower in a very different way…


Hi!


I’ve made the gorgeous Creative Chaos flower stamp by Visible Image into a party dress!



It’s easy to do, you just turn the paper upside down, stamp it, mask it, stamp it twice more to the outside edges, and place the stems ‘just so’ to make the bodice. The ‘Happy Birthday’ makes a great set of legs too!

Or, as one of my VI team mates pointed out…it could be seen as a fuchsia!

I don’t have a ton of photos to show today as I stamped and coloured this whilst having a crafty day at my friends house.  It was great to use her Zig clean colour real brush pens to water colour the image, and all I needed to do when I got home was to stamp the legs, add some sparkle to the bodice and layer it up onto a card. Needless to say I am hooked on the Zigs and have invested in my own set now.




Hmmmm ….I wonder what other ways this stamp can be creatively used?


 

Stamps Used:







Other Supplies:

Canston Aquarelle 300gsm/140Lb water colour paper,
Versafine onyx black ink,
Zig clean colour real brushes (light green, turquoise green, blue, deep blue, violet, light blue),
quickie glue pen,
glamour dust,
black and light blue card stock,
fun foam.


That’s it from me for now. Thanks for stopping by and I will be back here soon!


Hugs,
Sharon xx

The World Needs Art | Visible Image

Hello! We have Jane Tyrrell here on the blog this evening with an awesome project featuring lots of our creative quote stamps…


Today I am sharing an accordion card I took to the Crafting at Ally Pally show last month.

I wanted something to show off lots of the latest stamps and quotes, which have been so popular!



My accordion cards features stamps from all these sets:















How I created it:


I used PaperArtsy Fresco paints.


and brayered a background onto 2 A4 sheets of card as I wanted to make 2 masterboards to cut up.

I used these colours of Archival ink


and randomly stamped over the sheets using all the image sets. Here is one of the sheets in progress


I then die cut my accordion card

>


and stamped the 4 World needs art sentiments, 1 on each panel.

I also added some stamps which I yellow embossed


and also stamped and cut out a few images.



I then put everything together…



and some close ups…





 

After I finished off my card I had some off-cuts. I had a flash of inspiration that I could use them to made Artist trading coins, which I did…


These were all packed ready for taking to the show when I had one last idea. If I attached a badge back to them I could turn them into badges for Helen, Mark and myself to wear at the show!

I quickly ordered some on line and hey presto, one of a kind badges!


which Mark, Helen and I wore at the show!



I really had a lovely day and thoroughly enjoyed demoing and meeting so many lovely crafters, new and seasoned!


Thanks for stopping by today.


Back soon.
Bye for now,

Jane x




Jane your project is awesome and it was so loved at the show! Your Artist Trading Coin badges are such a cool idea, and we loved wearing them! Thank you for the brilliant inspiration ♡

Kindness Journal Page | Quirky Flower Stamps | Visible Image

Hello and Happy Monday! We hope you had a lovely weekend. Lisa Taggart is here on the blog today with a wonderful art journal page featuring some of our quirky flower stamps…


Hello my friends today I’m sharing an art journalling project using one of the latest stamp sets: Random Art of Kindness


Here’s what the finished project looks like


 


This project combines a number of things:- a left over gel press print scrap, some inking with distress oxides, some collage again using scraps, stamping, including stamping on to tissue paper, brayering with acrylic paint, doodling and colouring ! – a whole mixture of fun!


Here are some photos to show how it developed


I began with aleft over scrap from a gel press session.







After some stamping I stamped some of the flowers on to printed tissue paper, cut out the images and adhered them to the picture.







The torn leftovers were adhered to the bottom of the picture using gel medium.




I roughly used my brayer and buttermilk coloured acrylic paint to add more texture and interest.



To finish off the project I added splatters, stamped the stems and used gold high flow acrylic paint to draw leaves and stems freehand. I continued to highlight the flowers using a white gel pen and posca paint pens. I also added some doodling here and there. I stamped the sentiment on to white card and added this separately and randomly stamped some of the other sentiments from the set along the stems.














This is such a gorgeous page Lisa! So much to see and we are loving all your gorgeous texture.
Thank you Lisa! ♡

Creative Chaos | Inky Flower Stamps | Visible Image

Hello! We hope you are having a good weekend. Lisa Taggart is here on the blog this evening with a stunning card featuring the inky flower stamps from our ‘Creative Chaos’ stamp set…


I have the pleasure today to share more new release stamps from Visible Image. This time it’s the mixed media collection and oh my goodness what exciting new designs we have! You are going to love them.


I’ve kept my first sample simple. The stamps speak for themselves!



 



Here are the steps..


To begin, as ever… inky scraps! These were created using spectrum noir aquatint ink placed onto acetate and pressed against card then lifted. It’s a cool technique and gives interesting colour combinations and patterns.




I enhanced the colours with ink pads and then began to build the layers.


























I hope you like it!


Till next time…

Kindness | Flower Stamps | Visible Image

Hi there! We have Pauline here on the blog today with a really striking card created with some of our new quirky flower stamps…


Hello,

 
I’m back with a card I’ve created using one of the fantastic new stamp sets from Visible Image: Random Art of Kindness, with their super Stars and Stripes stencil.
 
quirky flower stamps

 

On a piece of watercolour card, I placed the stencil, and blended through it with Salty Ocean Distress ink on the stars side, and Picked Raspberry on the striped side, then with a water spritzer, I soaked the card, and held it to drip, stars up, so’s that the ink ran and spread, I left it to dry naturally.
 
Then on a piece of smooth white card, I stamped six of the daisy flowers using a Versafine Onyx Black ink pad, I coloured them in with Clean color brush pens, and fussy cut three large flowers, and just the centres of the other three.
 


 
Going back to the dry background, I blended lightly with Salty Ocean Distress Ink, on any of the white area’s, I stamped three flowers with black ink, then using the funky stem with Salty Ocean Oxide Ink, I stamped the stems. I added the flowers using 3D glue gel, stamped the words onto a piece of blue card, and added them to the background. I used a 5B pencil to put shadows on the stars, and also highlights with a white pen, also around the words, and black Stickles in the middle of the flowers.
 



Products Used:


kindness stamp - quirky flower

 


stars and stripes stencil - USA flag


Hugs,
Pauline xxxxx

Kindness | Flower | Card

Hello! Do you love clean and simple cards? We adore them, and our new stamps really lend themselves to this style of card as well as for more inky mixed media styles. Sharon Traynor has created such an elegant and striking card with our NEW ‘Random Art of Kindness’ stamp set, which includes some really funky hand drawn flowers…


Oh boy!


I am absolutely LOVING this latest release from Visible Image.


flower stamp | kindness | card



I know the images in some of the stamp sets were made with art journalling in mind, and that they suit mixed media really well…. but they are also PERFECT for the CAS genre. So I guess that’s why I’m a happy bunny. I made 12 cards with the new sets in 2 afternoons at the weekend, including a bit of glossy accents and other stuff. The most cards I’ve managed in one afternoon before now is 3  –  so I doubled my productivity with these new sets. It’s easy when you love the stamps you are using!


Want a peek at the samples that I sent to Helen and Mark at Visible Image last week?


Ha ha! I can’t give too much away because I’m sure there will be a Facebook Live event sometime soon where some of these will be shown….. and of course there are one or two that I would love to blog about! Anyway, in that stack somewhere is today’s card.


As soon as I saw this Random Art Of Kindness stamp set I knew it was going to be a firm favourite, and the first thing that I wanted to do with it was something that you wouldn’t necessarily associate with the beautiful grungy and mixed media pieces that everyone makes with Visible Image stamps. For me, this particular stamp was just crying out to be zentangled – so I did.


I am no expert in zentangling, in fact I’m not sure that I have ever made a card with zentangling on it, but this is a passable try. Anyhow, in an effort not to completely overload this post with photos.


I have set up two different pages for the full step by step of how I did these Zentangled petals
which you can see by clicking HERE for part 1 and HERE for part 2.



This next bit however, is the step by step tutorial for everything else with just the final photo of each petal.


To make this card:


Stamp the flower twice, and then colour in the flower ‘centre’ on one image with the black micron pen (this will be the one we zentangle on). Colour the other flower centre with a versamark clear pen and heat emboss with black embossing powder, then fussy cut that embossed centre piece out (that one will be raised up on foam on the final flower).




These are small pictures of each petal as I completed it.


Petal 1 and 2
         



Petal 3 and 4
      



Petal 5 and 6
     



Petal 7 and 8
      


Petal 9



Once the flower has been completely zentangled, fussy cut it out and set it to one side with the heat embossed flower centre.


Take a piece of 13cm x 13cm white card and make the border like this






When you have completed the border, stamp the stem into place. You can use the flower stamp to help get the placement correct.




Mount the panel onto some white and black paper and attach it all to a 15cm x 15cm card blank.


Layer the flower up using 3d foam pads, add a pearl to the centre and attach it to the card.




Finally heat emboss the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card, cut it into a banner and attach that to the front of the card on 3d foam too.




So I had to actually recreate this card because I was so ‘in the zone’ when I created the original one that I forgot to take the step by step photos. Here are both cards.The original card is on the left and the reproduced one is on the right. The only real difference that I can see is in the size of the zentangled border, so I’d say that you could quite easily batch produce some of these cards.


      



Stamps Used:


flower stamps - hand drawn - hope - kindness



Other Supplies:

Versafine Obyx Black ink, Versamark clear ink and pen, Heat it Up! Black embossing powder, WOW! Opaque Bright White Superfine embossing powder, Pigmaa Micron Fineliner pens (sizes 005, 0.5 and 0.8),3d foam, pear centre, black and white card and paper.



I hope you enjoyed this trip down zentangle lane! I will be back a little later with a masculine card!


Hugs,
Sharon xx

Creative Chaos | Inky Flower Stamp | Visible Image

Hello! Thank you for visiting our blog today. Sorry it’s been a little neglected lately, there just haven’t been enough hours in the day, for a good reason though.. we are really feeling the love for our new stamps, and we are blown away by all the orders! We’ve just about caught up with ourselves, so now it’s time to share lots of gorgeous inspiration with you. Our Design Team are absolutely loving creating with our new designs! Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog today with the first of two absolutely stunning cards, featuring the beautiful inky flower stamp from our NEW ‘Creative Chaos’ set…



Good Afternoon


It is time for me to share my first Design Team card for Visible Image using their brand new awesome mixed media stamps. Every single one of the 6 sets in the release have so much to offer our creativity!

This is the set I have worked with for my first card today.. it is just brilliant.

Inky flower stamp


The sunshine here made me reach for my sunny palette.

The sun was streaming in on the day I made it I was so inspired to use happy yellow and orange  distress inks, despite the frost on the ground.




I also got out my much used Tale of 2 cities book, and used some pages to stamp the larger inky flower stamp on to.




I fussy cut out one of the images. I also stamped the image onto the card front and added some edging using the fab DNA stamp.



This is my finished card…

out of chaos comes creativity - stamp



with a close up of the gorgeous inky flower stamp..



These are the distress inks I worked with…



When I design my cards I often work on a sample first which I use to test out placement etc… most are kept for a reference and not mounted up. However when I was making my flower card I actually rather liked the sample version too so I thought that I would also share it to show how well these stamps work in any colour way..

inky flower stamp




I have also been working with the new butterfly set, so will be back to share my card a little later.


Thanks for stopping by.


Bye for now,
