Storms May Break Its Branches | CAS Card

Hi! Thanks for coming to visit our blog today! Today’s inspiration from Sharon Traynor is a gorgeous clean and simple card featuring one of our favourite stamp sets for Autumn and Winter.: TREE OF LIFE. The sentiment in this set really resonates right now as we all face continued troubling times…


Hello there.


It’s about time that I made an Autumn themed card! Looking through my Visible Image stamps I spotted the Tree of Life set and decided to give it some Autumnal colours. This tree looks amazing in fresh, lush greens but it also looks good in the rich colours of autumn. In fact, you could use it for any season of the year!



tree of life card | autumn | inspiring sentiment


The sentiment is superb for Autumn too as there are usually some squally showers and winds howling to strip the trees of their colourful leaves. It is such a positive sentiment; great for reminding us that there is always hope of new life and growth.



This is how I made this card:


First smoosh some ink onto a craft mat and spritz with water, then taking a piece of acetate transfer some of the ink to a panel of white card. Build up a couple of layers of ink on the panel. Let the panel dry.



Stamp the tree in brown distress oxide ink and emboss it with clear embossing powder. Now colour the leaves in with your choice of marker pens.



Stamp the sentiment into place and heat emboss with a gold powder. Use an embossing pen to colour 3 of the leaves on the tree and heat emboss those with the same gold powder.




Mat the panel onto some gold card and then add it to a card blank. The final touch was to add 3 tiny gold gems under the sentiment.




Stamps used:


tree of life stamp | storms quote | leaf | Visible Image



Other Supplies:

Distress Oxide Inks: walnut stain, fired brick
Distress Ink: aged mahogany
Versamark clear embossing pad
Versamarke clear embossing pen
WOW! embossing powders: clear gloss, metallic gold rich
Promarker pens: yellow, amber, lipstick red, burnt orange
Gold gems
White and gold card



Thanks for stopping by and I really hope to see you again soon.


Hugs,
Sharon xx




We love this card! The tree looks fabulous over the oxides ink and the leaves look gorgeous coloured with gold embossing. Thank you Sharon ♡

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.

New Leaves Will Always Grow

Hi there! We hope you are staying safe and well and coping with this very different world that we all live in at the moment. We are grateful for sunshine and being able to go for walks here in Wales, and we love to see all the signs of spring in the trees, plants and flowers. Jane Tyrrell is here today with a wonderful card featuring our ‘Tree of Life’ stamps, the sentiment in this set is very apt at this current time…


Hello
it is time for my fortnightly design team post for Visible Image. Spring is in full swing now despite the blip in temperatures over the last few days.


The blooms I have seen on my daily walks  have been stunning and these inspired both the card and the colour palette for my card today.






The stamp set I am working with today is called Tree of Life


tree of life stamp


This is what I got up to.

I used blue and pewter distress ink sprays to create a background



I cut it down to a 5 1/2 ” square and then added my stamping. I used the tree in the set as branches around the edge of my card.



I used every stamp in this lovely set.



I stamped both sizes of the leaves onto inky mop up card and cut them out.



I then stamped the leaves onto my card and paper pieced them with the leaves above. I added glossy accents to all the little circles to make them look like dew drops.



Here is my finished card. The sentiment is also so appropriate for now.

With a couple of close ups







Stay safe and stay creative.


Bye for now,
Jane x



What a fantastic card! We love how you have used the foliage around the edges of your card, and that sky blue is stunning! The dew drops look beautiful too.  Thank you Jane ♡

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.

Don’t Judge Stamp Set

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 ^.^

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 ♡

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 ♡

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 ♡

You’ll find so many inspiring projects and videos over on Veerle’s blog.

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

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
