Look Forward | Tag | Visible Image

Good Morning, we have lots of inspiration coming your way here on the blog today! First up is Veerle with a beautiful and so inspiring tag featuring our look forward sentiment stamp..




Those wings… they were the first to jump right into my eyes when I saw the release of this set Faerie magic. They look perfect with the faerie but I already saw myself use them separately.

So I took out some stazon ink and a piece of sturdy plastic, cut them all out… and then just started playing with laying them out in different ways. Hmm maybe bring in a black circle… which was a bit too dark so I needed to break that up…





Never did I think that the wings would end up as flower petals on my first project using them ^.^
And of course I needed some words… No surprise when I tell you I didn’t need to look really hard to find those in all the perfect words Visible Image has do I ^.^


Sometimes life is fragile, but it is in full bloom and there is nothing better to do than to look forward. Find those golden spots when everything is dark, those are the ones that will pull you through <3



Stamps used:


mindfulness - stamps - rubber - positive quotes



fairy stamp - rubber - clear



inky - thorax - ribs - anatomy - stamps





This is so beautiful Veerle, we love how you always see the stamps in your own unique way.. thank you ♡

Tree of Life Stamp | Handmade Card

Hello! So sorry we have been neglecting our blog lately.. but we are back and we have loads of gorgeous inspiration to share with you from our amazing Design Team and wonderful guest designers! Pauline Butcher is up first, to inspire you with a fabulous card featuring our Tree of Life stamps…

Hi there,
 
I’m sharing a new creation I’ve made using a couple of awesome ‘Visible Image’ Stamps.
 


tree of life stamp
 


The stamps I have used are:


Tree of Life 


tree of life - stamp



and the sentiment from Just Breathe.


anatomy stamp - breathe

 
I started with some black card, on which I stamped and heat embossed the tree with Wow Fluorescent Green Embossing Powder. I then stamped and heat embossed the smaller leaf from the set, with clear embossing powder.

Using a white pencil, I scribbled the ground around the tree, and gently shaded a moon behind the tree. Using a Glitter Pen, I coloured in the tree leaves, and added touches of glitter to the other leaves.



I had a piece of card left over from a session doing the shaving foam technique, and stamped the human figure twice onto it, and fussy cut them. I then stamped two more, one on blue card and one on pink card, and again fussy cut them.


I finished it off with the sentiment, stamped and heat embossed in black powder, then added some Stickles for that bit of sparkle!


Hugs, Pauline xxxx



Wow what an awesome card Pauline! Your embossed leaves look stunning and the figures look so striking in those vibrant tones! Thank you ♡

Stay Mindful | Handmade Card

Hello and Happy Sunday to you! We hope you have a relaxing day planned, or can at least squeeze in a little time just for you ♡ Jane is here today with a gorgeous card featuring our ‘Mindful Moments’ stamps…

Good Morning

Today’s project showcases the  Mindful Moments stamp set. I decided to be use the summer sunshine and enjoyment of sandy beach holidays for my inspiration.
What is better than the sun shining at the seaside?


We will be back here in September and I can sit and be mindful of the blessings I have in my life.

Our beloved Rhodes..



This is the fab set which has lots of great accessory stamps and sentiments to use both for cards, tags, mixed media and journalling.


mindfulness - stamps - meditation - yoga - let go - calm



I also used one of the sentiments from the Look Forward with Hope stamp set


Hope - sentiment stamps - inspiring quotes


I used PaperArtsy infusions to create my background and then stamped the sentiment.



I added some mustard seed Oxide ink to tone things down a little



and stamped the sun into the corner.


I used the oxide to colour the centre of the sun


I die cut an ornate frame in gold


Next I stamped the main image and some of the flowers onto acetate coloured with alcohol inks and cut them out.


 I also stamped “let go” onto yellow vellum



Then it was time to put everything together.



Here is my finished card…


mindfulness card - yoga - meditation - stamp



with some close ups…






and one final shot…



Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Back soon.


Bye for now,
Jane x




Jane this is absolutely stunning! These stamps look fabulous stamped on acetate, and the die cut frames her beautifully ♡ Thank you!

Sometimes It’s OK to not be OK!

Hi there! Martha is here the blog with a gorgeous art journal page featuring the beautiful yoga stamp from our ‘Mindful Moments’ set, and a sentiment we all need to remember.. (sometimes) it’s OK to not be OK…



For my art journal page I chose as focal image this stamp from the ‘MINDFUL MOMENTS’ set


Yoga - Meditation - stamp - mindfulness



All the white space inside the body invites to fill with whatever my mood inspire, and so this time I follow the slight balance between the feeling to be a little bit broken inside and the search of peace

 





Here is the process video

This is such a thought provoking journal page, we love how you used the cracked glass stamp and the crackle on her heart… beautiful work Martha! Thank you for your fantastic video too ♡

Today I Choose Calm | Fauxdori | Art Journal

Hi there! We have our fabulous Guest Designer Giovanna (giogiocraft)  here today with such an inspiring project featuring our Mindful Moments stamps…


Recently I found in my mail box the new stamps by Visible Image: I had to play with them straight away. And I also tested, eventually, the stamp platform by Tim Holtz. Can you live without it? Of course, but…. it’s a totally new way of stamping, and there’s are lot of pros using it.


I created from scratch two faux-dori and I had some serious fun using alcohol inks on photo paper: I was in awe. Ok it is a mess, and you need gloves but the result is fantastic, and you get such vibrant colours, process photos at the bottom of this post.

I Choose Calm – Mindfulness Stamps

Hello! Pauline Butcher is here on the blog today with a beautiful card featuring our ‘Mindful Moments’ stamps, which includes our yoga lotus position image…

It’s my turn to share a card I’ve made using some stunning Visible Image stamps sets.
 
yoga card - mindfulness - stamps
 


The stamps I have used on this card are:

 

My background was achieved by putting a couple of blobs of Mustard Seed Oxide re-inker onto my mat, spritzed some water on it, and then taking my card I gently picked up some colour, then dryed it. I did this a couple of times until I had got enough ink on my card, leaving some white space. I repeated this using Ripe Persimmon, and again with Worn Lipstick. (You could always use the Oxide ink pads to do this technique if you haven’t got the re-inkers).

Onto this background, I stamped my trees using Versafine Onyx Black, then ‘grounded’ the trees with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Using a small ball tool, I blobbed some acrylic paint over the largest tree, to make blossom.


 
On another piece of card, I blended some Mustard Seed Distress Ink, flicking water on it, and dabbing off with kitchen towel (called faux bleaching). Onto this card I stamped the Yoga Lady, the ohm symbol and the sentiment, and fussy cut them. I attached all the elements onto the card using 3D glue gel. When it was dry, I added some areas with a Quickie Glue Pen, and rubbed some gold gilding sheet over the top, then added some Stardust Stickles for that finishing touch.
 
 


Hugs,
Pauline xxxxx 



This is stunning Pauline… that sky!!!! We love the touches of gold too ♡
