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…

Write The Next Chapter

Hello! We have Heather Mitchell here on the blog today with an amazing card featuring our awesome new typewriter stamp set which includes two brilliant quotes, and some little greetings that cleverly fit on the paper…


Howdy doody everyone…

All these gorgeous new stamps and stencils from Visible Image have got me rather excited!! I am loving the graphic look to the stencils and know that they are going to be used loads… and the stamps? Well, Mark has pulled his designer hat out of the bag yet again and created some real beauties!!


My make today uses the utterly brilliant One Kind Word stamp set and the Grateful stencil.  So many possibilities with this set and I know both will become firm favourites with everyone.

Really easy make this one. Create a distressed background using a mixture of Distress Ink and Distress Oxide ink pads and spritz with a shimmer spray. To add extra texture, splatter some Antique Bronze Distress Spray Stain and leave to dry.

While drying, ink up the typewriter stamp and stamp twice, fussy cut them both, placing one to the side. With the other, trim around the paper and the bar bit (that holds the paper in place… which I’m sure has a proper name but I have no idea what it is!) and trim a longer piece of paper to fit in the space. Ink all over with a linen coloured ink pad and edge with dark brown.

Stamp the letters and splat with the same Distress Spray Stain as before. When dry, feed the paper through the typewriter and attach some tape on the back to secure in place. Take the other stamped typewriter image and attach foam tape to the front. Secure the (now complete) other image over the top.



Before adhering to the background, take the Grateful stencil and mask off various areas to give a random look. Apply red ink through the stencil and then stamp the sentiment to the bottom of the background before attaching the main image. Once in place, curl the corners for added effect and voila!



Here are the two new Visible Image products I used…

You Are Strong

Hello! We hope you are having a good day. Veerle Moreels is here to inspire you with another brilliant video today. Veerle’s beautiful card features just one of the hands and part of the sentiment from our NEW ‘You Are Not Alone’ stamp set, interpreted in her own unique way…

A touch… a feeling… a heartbeat…

Seeing the new set from Visible Image with those beautiful hands… they sure touched something inside of me.  They speak to me and I want to go and create some things of which I can’t even say why I’m putting certain elements together.


For today’s project I do know what started my project. Looking at one of the hands I immediately thought of a puppet player.  So I just knew I wanted to have something hanging on the hand.  But it wasn’t until I started my project that I found the perfect elements.
Got you curious? I’ve got it all filmed, have fun ^.^



I hope that, when you are dangling on a thin thread, you find the strength inside of yourself and remember just how strong you are.
Lot’s of love X

Time To Write The Next Chapter

Hello! We hope Monday has been kind to you! We are so excited to share lots of gorgeous inspiration created with our brand new stamps and stencils this week! Release date isn’t far away now… just a few more days! We have been really busy shipping orders off to stockists all around the world today, so keep an eye out in your local store or favourite online retailer over the next week! Today’s inspiration comes from Jane Tyrrell and features our (already) incredibly popular ‘One Kind Word’ stamp set, which includes a brilliant typewriter stamp and so much more…

Good Evening

It’s the 1st of October and a Monday so of course that means it’s my day for sharing my Monday Design Team make for Visible Image.

Today I am sharing for the first time a card I made using the brilliant One Kind Word set.

typewriter stamp - time to write the next chapter



Now don’t tell anyone, but this is my favourite. I have honestly been looking for a vintage typewriter stamp where I could actually stamp words on the paper for years. Well now I can. It is such a clever set and I am sure is going to be a best seller. It works for so many occasions and for card making, journalling etc etc.


I had a lovely Friday and Saturday creating in my garden studio. There was wall to wall blue skies and sunshine and I loved being outside. I have noticed the signs of autumn though all around me.

.



We are starting a new challenge today over on our Visible Image Facebook group. The theme is “Autumn Colours”. So dig out your brown, yellow, orange, gold, mauve, red and other autumnal colours and your Visible Image stamps/stencils. We would love for your to join in! The winner is randomly selected so whether you are a novice or experienced stamper you have a chance of winning the £40 voucher to spend over in the shop.


My card was made in shades of browns to hopefully give some inspiration for our new “autumn colours” challenge, I also wanted to create a vintage feel to it.


I was very taken by one of the 2 sentiments in this set “time to write a new chapter” and I had a light bulb moment when I was sitting in my studio. I had decided to include my much used vintage book pages from “A tale of 2 cities” donated by my Hb.



As I was thinking of how I would use them in my design I thought that I could actually find a page that was the end of a chapter, ready to start a new one. I found a suitable page and stamped the sentiment and the letters flourish in brown ink. I also cut out the paper part and stamped the words, “You are loved” in brown ink. I put some foam under the top of this and glued down the base to add some dimension.


I made a “book” with my vintage book pages and aged them using vintage photo distress ink plus a little tearing and peeling here and there.


I stamped,embossed and fussy cut out my typewriter and stamped the small and large hearts and matted up my card.



Here it is..

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a very happy October, the year is just racing by now.


Back soon.


Bye for now,

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,
