Love and Compassion | Mindful Stamps | Stencils

Hello! We are back with more wonderful inspiration for you today. Lynda Hall has combined our NEW ‘Words of Support’ stencil with stamps from our ‘Love is Love’ and ‘Don’t Judge’ sets, which work so well together…


Today’s creation for Visible Image is all about love and uses some incredibly powerful images and words. This card would be perfect for anyone that needed a little support in troubled times.


compassion | calm | hope | trust | stencil | stamps


I started with a piece of mixed media card sprayed with a combination of Dylusions and Distress Oxide spray inks, and I stamped and embossed one of the faces from the new ‘Love is Love’ set at the edge.



On a gelli print scrap in coordinating colours I also embossed the sentiment ‘Love Is’ inside the heart stamp from Don’t Judge.



I added some background stamping for added depth and then applied texture paste through some of the words on the Words of Support stencil. Because the inks are water based, the paste absorbs some of the colour and tints it as it dries- very cool!



To finish I stamped and fussy cut the person from Don’t Judge, outlined the words in black, and added white highlights and some pops of colour to the details on the face profile.

This is such a wonderful card Lynda, and will be so meaningful to so many people. The white embossing looks gorgeous against the vibrant background and we love how the colours come through in the words. Thank you ♡

Look Forward With Hope

Hello and Happy Monday to you! We hope you had a lovely weekend   Judy Rozema is kicking off this week’s inspiration here on the blog with a stunning card featuring our ‘Beautiful Soul’ face stamp and an inspiring quote…


Today I am sharing some watercolor painting and a card made with three different stamp sets from Visible Image.

face stamp | hair | woman



I started out by mixing oranges, yellows, and reds from my Kuretake paints. I didn’t have an image, or idea in mind for what I would make; I was just mixing colors. When it was dry, it reminded me of the gorgeous image from Beautiful Soul.


I used my MISTI to line up where the image might look best, and stamped it with VersaFine Clair Nocturne. I added the sun from Look Forward With Hope in the upper right corner, and the net from Mesh-ellaneous along the bottom and upper left corner in yellow and orange inks.





I stamped the sentiment sentiment in Nocturne ink. I think it’s the perfect sentiment for all that is happening in our world right now. For added sparkle, I used Orange Peel Stickles in three waves of her hair. I love how it turned out!



Stamps Used:


face stamp | woman | hair | positive | sentiment stamps



Hope | It's OK to not be OK | brave | storm | sentiment | stamps



mesh | ripped fishnet | background stamp



handmade card | hope | face stamp | woman



Thank you for stopping by today!



This card is so striking Judy! Your background is fabulous, we love the texture and interest you added with the fishnet background stamp. Thank you 

You will find more of Judy’s inspiring cards over on her blog.

Picking Up The Pieces | Card

Hello! It is a cold, wet and windy day here in Wales, so we are brightening it up with an amazing card by Ericka Strange! Ericka’s card is so vibrant and the words from our ‘Don’t Judge’ stamp set are really inspiring for anyone going through a tough time…


Happy Tuesday!

I hope you are all having a good January so far.

I love this set from Visible Image, and the many ways to use it. Today I’m using the heart portion with the puzzle pieces.


broken | picking up the pieces | stamp | rubber | clear


To make my hearts, I started by using Distress Oxide sprays and photo paper. I love the bright colors that result in the spraying Distress Oxides and smooshing photo paper on the ink.


DOhearts


Once the ink is dry, I use a paper towel to wipe off the oxidized part and always love the results I get. I stamped the heart and puzzle pieces with Black Archival Ink and let it dry on the photo paper. Archival ink works the best since the photo paper in nonporous and won’t smear. I then fussy cut out the pieces and arranged them on white cardstock.


DOheartscut


I used foam tape for my center heart in order to give my card more dimension and then I traced the hearts with black pen to help the lines stand out on the white card base.


DOheartclosup


I stamped the sentiment in Versafine ink and clear heat embossed it. to finish my card, I attached it to black cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a happy week and remember we all have pieces we are picking up and we can also help others with theirs.






Wow this card is superb Ericka, and so striking! We love the missing and scattered puzzle pieces from the hearts.. thank you

Inhale Confidence | Art Journal Page

Hello! We are back as promised with more wonderful inspiration today. Veerle has created an inspiring art journal page, with a tutorial video too, so sit back, relax and inhale…



I’ve been missing for a while… it have been some crazy couple of weeks with the end of the year happening. But we’ve started 2020 and of course creativity will be a big part again ^.^

So January first… I had my camera on and just went ahead and made my first video for this year.



art journal page | inhale confidence | mindfulness


I think these words are perfect to get a whole new year started. Words to keep in mind. And I know, it’s always easier said than done. But I want to make these a big part of 2020. These and so many other words from the Visible Image word stamps. Let’s make 2020 a strong year ^.^



Stamps Used:

Have Compassion | Mental Health Awareness Stamps

Hi there! Lisa Taggart is here on the blog today with a superb mixed media project created with our ‘Don’t Judge’ stamp set…


Hello! Have you been enjoying the new autumn release stamps from visible image? Today I’m using one of my favourite sets. I love the versatility of this set. Perfect sentiments and brilliant combination of images. Great for mixed media and journaling projects as well as cards of course.


don't judge | compassion | rubber stamps



Don’t judge


don't judge | i am strong | compassion | broken | stamps



It’s great to get an opportunity to use up interesting scraps after a gel press printing session. Today’s project uses an MDT tag.


The steps:


Select an interesting print and cut to fit the tag. Stick with tacky glue and sand the edges. I also painted the back and tag stand using black gesso.



Heat emboss the image three times in black on printed leftovers. Then cut out.



Stamp and cut out a number of jig saw puzzle pieces from the scraps. Stamp more of these images on the main tag and stick the cut out pieces on top paying attention to the background colours. A contrast is best. Then heat emboss the scribble stamp on two of the person cut outs and repeat the puzzle card piecing technique on them too. Add the safety pin stamp on the centre image and heat emboss in black.




Heat emboss the heart in black on to the tag. Add some ink splatters in black and white. Assemble the cut out images on top using foam pads. I also added black thread for extra texture. Stamp the sentiments and cut out. Edge using black ink. Adhere to project. Finally use a pale coloured paint pen for a little doodling around the edges.

Bye for now …

Lisa. Xx




This is so awesome! We love how you stamped the jigsaw pieces in the background and then layered some on top, it creates superb dimension on your stunning background. The figures look so striking too! Thank you Lisa ♡

The new autumn stamps release by Visible Image is just amazing and so inspiring

I love mix and match old stamps with the new one, and so I created this card with the focal point from the ‘Don’t Judge’ stamp set, a man silhouette and lot of sentiment stripes from this set and from the ‘Somewhere In Time’ set, all this sentiments are in the background but also strike the man who is maybe overwhelmed inside and outside, but…ehi…don’t judge 🙂




Here the stamps and stencil used:


mindful stamps | mental health awareness | don't judge



smashed clock | stamp | time

I Am Strong | Mindfulness Stamps

Hello! We have stempelfrida up next on the blog with a brilliant card featuring our NEW ‘Don’t Judge’ stamps which include positive sentiments like ‘I am strong’ and ‘Don’t Judge’…


I am strong – this is only one of the amazingly rich words, which can be found in the new release of Visible Image. I could not decide for a while, which one to start with, since there are so many wonderful statements. But my card of today should have the theme “I am strong”. 


i am strong | card | journal page


The card should simply show the strength and therefore it is rather simple, but striking in its design. I can imagine thousands of meanings for it and stories behind it and hope that you will also find yourself here.

How I made this card:


My main character is made from a dark piece of cardstock, which had some structure. After treatment with Gesso I achieved this special look.


<


I stamped the person onto it with Ink on 3 and fussy cut it. Again, my Distress Oxides were used for staining the edges.


>


The background of my card is a beige cardstock, which I treated with some Gesso. I used the stencil “Stars & Stripes” to create the stripes with Distress Oxides. I also dyed the edges of it with Distress Oxides. I coloured the outerlines in black with a pen. The text was made the same way.



For the splashes I took some ink from the Distress inks with a brush, added water and sprinkled it over the card.


I am strong | stamp | card | mental health awareness



Supplies


Stamps: Visible Image Don´t Judge

Stencil: Visible Image Stars & Stripes

stamp pads: Ink on 3; Distress Oxides brushed corduroy, ground espresso, gathered twigs

We really love the feel of your card stempelfrida, it is just perfect for this statement. Thank you ♡
