Live In The Moment Debut – Visible Image stamps

Good Afternoon! Hope you are having a great weekend so far.

Susanne Rose is here to inspire you today, with a stunning project created with one of our BRAND NEW stamp sets due for release in February!

Over to Susanne…



Hi everyone. I am very proud to show you one of the brand new stamp designs from Visible Image that will be released in Febuary. I used the awesome dragonfly from the “Live in the Moment” set.

To add some dimension to the card I layered different labels on top of each other.

Scroll down to see some step by step photos.


Visible Image stamps - Live In The Moment - Dragonfly stamp - Susanne Rose


I started by inking the lables with Distress Ink Black Soot and stamped the dragonfly into the center.



To separate the sentiment, I always masked the part I don’t want to stamp with washi tape. I inked the stamp, removed the tape and stamped.



I add color with pearlescent watercolors and distressed the edges of all the layers.


I stamped the script stamp from the Revolution set partially into the background to add more interesst. For some more sparkle I used the Retro Dots Background, stamped it with VersaMark ink and added gold metallic PanPastels.



I use 3d foam pads to build the layers and adhered everything onto a white card base.




I hope you like my card. I’m totally excited about this awesome stamp set. Love it!


xx Susanne

Chalkboard Love – Visible Image stamps

Hello there 🙂 Thanks for coming to visit our blog today!

Double inspiration for you today with the latest projects from Susanne Rose and Doreen OBrien.

First up today, here’s Susanne…


Hi everyone!


It’s my day today to share some inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I used the awesome “You Are Loved” sentiment to create a chalkboard card.

I used the DCWV DIY Project Stack Chalk Party. The black paper is perfect for stamping with white pigment ink. This is a really quick card. The base layer is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. I sanded the paper so you can see the white core on the embossed parts. I adhered every layer with 3d foam pads to get some dimension.

Isn’t this fabulous! Loving the chalkboard effect, it works so well with our NEW Express Yourself sentiment stamps 🙂 Great layering of funky colours and patterns too! Thank you Susanne 🙂

Christmas Cards @ Visible Image

Good Evening!


Apologies for missing yesterday’s post… we are in full swing making all the stamps to bring to Ally Pally next weekend and Exeter the following week! As you probably know, we make and package all the stamps ourselves, just the two of us! Even hand cutting every single stamp.. so I’m sure you can imagine how busy it gets!  Good job we love it 😉


Lisa Nygards has some fantastic inspiration for you using our NEW Christmas stamps…

 

Hi,

I’ve done two pretty easy Christmas Cards today for Visible Image, using two of their new stamp sets. White Christmas and Rockin’ Around. Then I added the beautiful Vintage Car.

On the card with the car I’ve brayered the background on glossy cardstock with Kaleidacolor ink pad. Then stamped with black Staz On. The white card is just plain single layer and stamped with a blue Distress Ink. For the sentense I misted some water on top of the stamp before stamped, and the snowflake is stamped and then embossed with a clear and glittery powder. (Can hardly be seen at the photo).

Life Is Meant To Be Lived – Visible Image

Hi There! Thank you for coming to visit us here on the blog today 🙂

We have two brand new projects to share with you this evening.

First up, it’s Kim Bacon…

 

Here is my inspirational piece for Visible Image.



2015-09-08 Visible Image stamps - Life Is Meant To Be Lived - Kim Bacon



It is a piece of home decor, a 3 dimensional project which I made from a small shallow box.

I used a piece of acetate to stamp the sentiment onto.

I wanted the words to stand out from the background and thought by using acetate I could suspend them.

They are neither right at the back or right at the front. They are just hovering.

Good Evening! Thank you for visiting our blog today 🙂

We are catching up with some more of the latest work from our wonderful team. We have some fantastic Christmas projects to share with you today featuring some of our NEW designs for 2016…


Teresa Morgan



2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Believe In The Magic Of Christmas - Teresa Morgan


My mind is still turning towards Christmas and this week I have gone for a non-traditional colour combination.

I used the star stamp from the Universal set and randomly stamped and embossed using Versamark ink and red, yellow and green embossing powders.

I stamped the Magic of Christmas sentiment with Versamark and sprinkled red and yellow embossing powder to create a stripe effect. I love the way that the colours pop from the black background – just remember to check that your embossing powders are opaque when using a dark background…these are from WOW powders!




Lisa Nygards



2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Merry Christmas - Lisa Nygards


I have a hard time thinking about Christmas already, but infact I like to make Christmas Cards. Don’t know how that goes around… lol. Today I have made a card for Visible Image, and used their awsome sentense Merry Christmas XL. Yes – it is BIG! I like that, it gets total focus.

I’ve used a brown distress ink pad, but before I stamped I misted it with water to get the sentense a bit ”softer”. Then, before it dried I covered it with clear embossing powder. I was probably a bit slow, since I missed a few spots that was already dry. But I think it adds texture and life and it feels a bit old.




Karen Liddle



2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Believe In The Magic Of Christmas - Karen Liddle

I inked through a Memory Box Stencil, then heat embossed the Magic of Christmas sentiment stamp in silver.  This made a nice quick card.




Susanne Rose



2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Merry Christmas - Snowflake Tag - Susanne Rose


Today I’m sharing some more inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I’d like to show you some of the new Christmas Stamps from Visible Image. The snowflake is wonderful and the Merry Christmas sentiment looks so precious!

My base is a tag which is primed with black Gesso. After it was dry I added some white PanPastel color to let it look like a chalk board. This will also work with normal white chalk. The snowflakes and the sentiment from the White Christmas set are stamped with a white pigment ink. I love it, that the white is not 100% opak. That give it a real chalk board look. It’s also possible to work with white embossing powder, but that doesn’t look so real.




Kim Johnny



2015-09-06 Visible Image stamps - Rockin Around - Christmas Tree - Kim Johnny

Today I want to share an art tag I made for Visible Image stamps using the awesome Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree stamp set, new for 2015.

I went all vintage tones using DecoArt Crackle, Decoupage Paper medium, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Distress Spray ink and various alcohol inks.


 

The Distress Spray made a nice shimmer on the trees. It is stamped using Fern Green Archival ink.

 

 

I used DecoArt Crackle medium on top of some papers I had layered for the bottom of the tag using Decoupage Paper medium.

 


I added some alcohol inks to highlight the cracks once dry. The tag is edged with Potting Soil Archival Ink.




Thank you so much ladies, awesome work as always 🙂


You will find all our Christmas stamps right HERE! It’s never to early to plan your cards and maybe even start to make them, depending on how many you need to make!!!

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas Card – Visible Image stamps

Good Evening! Sorry we have been missing in action here on the blog these last few days, it has been another crazy week for us here at Visible Image! So many stamps to be made for our fantastic customers 🙂

So we will be catching up with all the latest cards and projects from the team! And wow do we have some stunners to inspire you!!!


We will start off with a brilliant tutorial from Kim Robertson, showing how with just one of our NEW Christmas stamp sets, some inks and a gold pen, you can create an absolutely stunning card…



Hi my lovlies,


Hope all is well this week , today I gave myself a little challenge , I decided to limit myself to one stamp set from the gorgeous new Christmas range from Visible Image so I chose The Merry Little Christmas set. Then I decided to keep to one colourway just a few tones of it. I really enjoy doing things like that and sometimes it can give you more inspiration by limiting how much you can choose.


So here is today’s card.



2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Merry Little Christmas - Contemporary Tree stamp - Kim Robertson


Definitely something a little different and almost whimsical don’t you think.

So My usual tutorial begins here and I hope you will have a go , it is as complicated or easy as you want it to be, you certainly can leave out any of the fiddly steps and simplify it if you would like a quicker card to do.



So using the little Christmas tree swirl I stamped it three times on white paper with the Adirondack ink Meadow.



Using the same stamp and Lettuce ink pad stamp the swirl again , slightly offset the three trees as I have here in the picture.



Next using a darker green  Archival Ink pad stamp the swirl again but this time in the centre to give the rounded shape of a Xmas tree.



Once you have got the basic shape using the swirl and different green inks you can take a gel en in white and doodle a pattern onto the tree, I went for a sort of ear garland wrapped around the tree branches.



Next Using a gold gel pen I added some droplets to the branches, just a few gold dots in varying sizes made these.



Using a cold grey 2 promarker I went around the decor with the pen creating a shadow in the tree.



I also added a litte cross hatch sketching to a few of the corners to give it that artsy feel.
Using a quickie glue pen and some glitter I added this to all the shadows.



Of course you all know you cannot get the full sparkle on camera whatever you do but here is a litte peep at the gleam lol.



Cut to size and ink the edges ready to go as your topper for the rest of the card once complete.




I took a larger piece of card and using the swirl stamp again added the three colours and over lapped some of the colours etc. I used the inks and blended the edges so it isn’t so stark white at the edges.



I added  the extras exactly as I did on the tree section we made together so here you can see some of the cross hatch sections and some of the white highlights and the gold little dots in a little garland pattern.You can also see that I added that same grey alcohol marker in sections.



I added the whole piece onto a mat of very dark aubergine card, I really do love this card and it goes fab with the greens in the inks.



Ok, so next I stamped the sentiment from the set in Black momento ink so we can go very close with the alcohol marker to give the letters a shadow, we also need to add a little highlight on the letters too and then of course mat the whole piece on that same dark card.

So adding everything back together here is the the finished piece again.



2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Merry Little Christmas - Contemporary Tree stamp - Kim Robertson

 Of course what’s a tree without something sparkly and pretty on the top..?



2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Merry Little Christmas - Contemporary Tree stamp - Kim Robertson 1


Here is another view which picks up a little sparkle on the tree.



So the fabulous Stamp set I used for this one from Visible Image was…


Merry Little Christmas



So I hope you enjoyed today’s card and you will have a go at limiting yourself and just see what you can come up with, sometimes if your creativometer is running a little low this gives a boost and kick starts the old brain juices into action again.



On to some exciting news… I will be at Ally Pally this month on the 19th and 20th, on the hugely popular Visible Image stand doing make and takes for both days, and I will also be in the tent doing some demo’s on each day so I hope you will come down and say hello and join us on the table to see what quality these stamps made by Mark and Helen truly are. I cannot wait to meet you all if you can get down to the show and have a good old chit chat and a craft together, it will be AWESOMMME. Huge Thanks to Helen and Mark for asking me to join them for the weekend, what an honour…. Thanks guys. xx



Have a wonderful weekend.


Huge hugs from me to you
