Shining Bright | Handmade Card

Hi there! Ericka Strange is here on the blog with a striking card featuring our light bulb stamp with one of our new sentiments, we think they work brilliantly together… what do you think?

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all doing well and had a wonderful weekend! We’ve had a couple of gloomy days so I thought I’d brighten up my craft room with this Shining Bright set from Visible Image.

I love this light bulb and thought I’d play with the Strobes stencil and creating shining rays using Distress Oxides and Distress Inks.


I started by blending Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Oxides on Bristol smooth paper. Then I masked the bottom of my card and pulled out my stencil and used a little Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide to darken the upper portion of the card.

I then masked the upper portion of the card and used Black Soot Distress Ink to darken the bottom half of my card base. I stamped the light bulb and gold heat embossed it as well as stamped another one that I fussy cut to attach to give the light bulb some depth.


I stamped the sentiment from the new release Night Owl and heat embossed it in gold. I love how easy it is to mix and match the Visible Image sets with each other.


I attached the bulb with some foam tape to complete and used a some Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to brighten the edges of the rays.

It’s hard to see, but I also used some Spetrum Noir Sparkle pen to add a little extra shine to the bulb.

Wow what a stunner! The lightbulb looks great embossed in gold and we love the chalky feel of the oxide ink against the black. Thank you Ericka

Listen to your Imagination | Lightbulb stamp

Good Morning! We have Macarena here on the blog today with a fabulous card featuring our light bulb stamp and our brilliant numbers stencil…

Oh no! Not bulbs again! 🙂
I’m wondering what Freud would say about it…

Anyway, I’m not going to stop using them, lol.
This one was made for a Birthday of a very talented designer…
To keep it masculine I created an electric garden with bulb-flowers.
Yeah, it can be weird but I hope he likes it.

1. Embossed the background with a stencil.
2. Used the same stencil and a black paint to make the background.
3. Gave a touch of blue and green here and there.
4. Used the flower as leaves, colored it in green and cut out.

Used Visible Image products:

Wow! We love your electric garden! Your stencilled background looks awesome, and the light bulbs are so striking against it. Great mix of stamps to create your sentiment too! Thank you Macarena ♡
