You Are Not Alone

Good Evening! This week is flying by, can’t believe it will be Friday tomorrow! We have the lovely Veerle Moreels on the blog this evening with a gorgeous tag featuring our ‘you are not alone’ stamp…

Hello!


Sometimes you see a set and you just fall in love. Well this ‘You Are Not Alone’ set is one of them.  Sometimes it’s so easy to explain and sometimes it’s not, it’s a feeling that a set gives you and that’s exactly what’s going on with this set.

I love the hands and love the words, they will make perfect cards to give some support to anyone in need of it. But they have so many more possibilities. For today’s project I chose to make a supportive tag…

And yes, that’s a little bit of gold on my butterfly ^.^

And yes,  I had some fun burning holes in my tag ^.^



Here’s the tag in it’s full glory.  But you could easily make it in a card’s version, and choose to make it in a color. Or just give the butterfly a color instead of the golden accent I chose for this tag…

a touch – a feeling – a heartbeat

Good Evening! We are back with more NEW stamps inspiration today! Pauline Butcher has got her hands on our amazing new hands stamps. This stamp set has such a powerful message, and Pauline has portrayed it brilliantly in her amazing card…

Hello,

It’s time for me to share a card I’ve made using some awesome Visible Image products.

This week, I’ve used another of the brand new stamp sets, along with a new ‘must have’ stencil.

 

hand stamps - a touch - a feeling - a heartbeat
 


My background was achieved using Ink Sprays on Shaving foam. I made a circular design, before taking my print. When it was dry, I stamped the hands from the You are not Alone’ stamp set, using a Versafine Black Ink pad. I decided that they didn’t show up enough, so I stamped them again onto a piece of white card, coloured them using Clean Color watercolour brush pens, and fussy cut them.
 


a touch - a feeling - a heartbeat
 


Before adding the cut out hands to my background, I stamped the fabulous circles, making sure the smaller one contained the ends of the fingers. I took the sentiments one by one, and gently bent them on my stamping block, to coincide with the circle marks (made by the shaving foam), and stamped them in black, highlighting them with a white pen.

I felt the two opposite corners needed something, so I used dotty side of the very useful new stencil called Two Tone, and blended through it with pink and yellow Distress Inks. The final touch was to add the hands with Pinflair 3D glue gel, and added some glitter to the circles in the middle.

NEW stencils – Visible Image

Good Morning and Happy Saturday to you! It’s a beautiful day here in Wales, the sun is shining and the trees are displaying all the gorgeous Autumnal colours. We are counting down to the release date of our amazing new stamps and stencils, so we will be sharing lots of brand new inspiration here on the blog! Heather Mitchell is here this morning with an amazing card featuring 2 of our new stencils with our stunning new ‘You Are Not Alone’ stamp set…

Hello everyone!

I’ve been playing with my Gelli plate recently and had prepared some backgrounds (using some of the Visible Image beautiful products naturally!) and I was itching to use them, so when the gorgeous new stamps and stencils landed on my door mat I knew exactly what to do with them!

The first card uses the new 1983 stencil and all I’ve done is simply draw around the outlines using a Derwent Inktense pencil in a matching purple hue and then used a teeny tiny brush to water the edges and blur them slightly.



geometric - two tone - stencils


To add to the geometric vibe, I’ve then used the new Two Tone stencil with some Graphite Texture Paste.



The hands on the You Are Not Alone stamp set are truly amazing!  I didn’t want to stamp them onto card and then fussy cut them out as I wanted a more translucent look, so I’ve heat embossed onto vellum, adding the sentiment from the set first in white and then in copper powder (to create a slight shading).


pointing hand stamp


The flash of light that I’ve positioned beaming out the finger, has been heat embossed in several metallic shades (copper, platinum and rich gold) and I’ve added a few adhesive gems to finish it off before matting it onto purple pearlised card and attaching to a 7×7″ card blank.


Ghost Print


The second card started life as the ghost print of the Gelli print used above. A ghost print is where you take off the excess ink on the Gelli plate after you’ve already pulled a print. This print is usually faded and lighter in appearance but very often they’re my favourite print as you can get some fantastic texture coming through!


strobes - rays - stencil


Over the print, I’ve layered the small fading polka dots from the Set The Tone set and then added the three different sized circles from the You Are Not Alone set used previously.



The gorgeous Hummingbird, from the Life is Beautiful set, looks fabulous positioned over where the Strobe stencil has left a textured gold print and has been heat embossed in a beautiful sparkly amethyst colour. To finish, I’ve added the sentiment from Voices In Your Head set and matted it onto matching turquoise card before adhering to a card 7×7″ blank.

You Are Not Alone..

Hello and Happy Monday to you! We are really excited to have launched 6 awesome new stamp sets and 3 brilliant new stencils today!


Available to pre-order now!


Visible Image - October Release 2018 - NEW stamps and stencils


RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 5TH


The most exciting part of any release is seeing the very first samples created with them, and today we have been wowed by Jane Tyrrell’s first card, featuring our ‘You Are Not Alone’ stamp set which includes our amazing reaching hands stamps and some really inspiring words. Over to Jane…



Good Morning, I am delighted to be sharing the first sample using one of the brand new October release stamp sets:


     reaching hands stamps - you are not alone sentiment - visible image



Inspired by the changing blue sky of Rhodes, I made 2 cards which I called Night and Day. Today I am sharing “Night”, I will share “Day” another time.



I made an blue oxide background on black card. I thought the hands are like those of the legends of the Greek gods making mischief from the heavens to the ancient Greeks below them on earth…. perhaps even on Rhodes thousands of year ago. I studied classical civilizations at both O and A level at school and loved the stories of the Odyssey and Iliad.

Here are some close ups…


The reaching hands stamps are so detailed and the circles and sentiments are fun to play with.



I used gold ink to stamp the circles, to me they represent the sunshine and in this vast universe I am pretty certain that we are not alone.




One more shot, I edged the card with gold ink which you can just see in this photo.

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. I am off to see some autumnal splendor in Surrey today as I am meeting my crafting buddy Brenda Brown for a day out at Wisley RHS Gardens. The sun is forecast to make an appearance, I have my camera packed!


Bye for now,

Jane x

The Future Is In Your Hands

Hello! We hope you’re having a great Friday and have some nice plans for the weekend! Pauline Butcher is here with some incredible inspiration for you today, featuring the awesome handprint stamps from our ‘In Your Hands’ stamp set…

Hello there, 

It’s Fabulous Friday and I hope you are all well.


You may know, that the owners of Visible Image (Helen and Mark), had their 3rd wedding Anniversary this week, this is the card I made for them, using some of their awesome stamps and stencils.

 


handprint stamps - anniversary card



The stamps I’ve used are:


In Your Hands


handprint stamps - visible image



Alphabetical


alphabet stamps



Scripted Streets


inky script stamp - street map stamp



and the stencils I’ve used are:


Collision




Stars & Stripes



I started the background using some Distress Ink re-inkers, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Picked Raspberry, putting a couple of drops onto my mat, one colour at a time, spritzing with a little water, then gently dipping the white card into it, until I had achieved the colours I wanted. I then stamped randomly with the Script stamp, using some Blue Versamark Clair ink, on top of this I placed the Collision Stencil, and randomly blended through it with a light layer of Salty Ocean Distress ink, then some Mustard Seed in other places.
 


  


Using just the Stars of the ‘Stars and Stripes’ Stencil, with a palette knife, I added some translucent embossing paste, adding stars to the whole of the background, when it was dry, I dabbed some silver holographic gilding flake, so it stuck in places.

On a separate piece of white card, I stamped the hands, one using a combination of Summertime and Charming Pink, and on the other a combination of Warm Breeze and Paradise ( all Versafine Clair Inks ) and fussy cut them, gluing them to some black card, and fussy cutting again. I stamped the sentiment with Black ink, and again fussy cut. I stamped the ‘Happy anniversary’ sentiment, using the incredibly useful ‘Alphabetical stamp set’.

To finish off, I adhered all the elements to the background using 3D glue gel, and added some eyelashes with a pen to the pink hand, and Glossy Accents to both eyes.


Many thanks for dropping in.


Hugs Pauline xxxx
