Thinking of You | Rose Stamp

Hello! We hope you had a lovely weekend, doesn’t Monday come around quickly! We are excited though, as we have lots of gorgeous inspiration coming your way this week and… NEW STAMPS too! Jane is here on the blog today with a beautiful card featuring our Thinking of You stamp with the rose from our FLOWER ART set with our wonderful verse…


Good Afternoon everyone, it’s time for my Visible Image design team post. After 2 weeks of Christmas stamps and stencils inspiration the design team are getting back to sharing some non Christmas makes. This is while we await the delivery of the new stamps and start making our samples. Yes there are 6 new stamp sets coming out later this month and they are AWESOME.


I decided to work with these 2 lovely sets and make a slimline card;


Flower Art


Flower Art | Stamps | Rose | Daffodil | Tulip | Clear | Rubber


and Thinking of You which has such a delightful verse written by Helen.


Thinking of you stamp | verse | card making | clear | rubber



This is what I got up to.


I sprayed frayed burlap and mermaid lagoon distress oxide sprays onto watercolour card, spritzed some water and dried with my heat gun. Once dry I cut a slimline panel. I then stamped the sentiment as shown. I masked off the verse so that I could stamp it in 2 halves on my background. I then stamped the rose from the Flower Art set with a green inked stalk/leaves and black over the flower head. As long as the stalk and leaves are green you don’t need to be too precise with the colour on the flower as this is being decoupaged.

I added some extra green to the leaves using a zig watercolour pen.



Next I stamped and embossed just the rose flower heads onto inky mop up card and cut them out.



I glued the rose blooms in place, matted up the card and adhered it to a slimline card blank (I just cut my own).




Here it is finished

Love Forever | Grunge Rose Stamp

Hi there! Happy Saturday! We hope you have a nice weekend planned. Ericka is here on the blog to inspire you today with a stunning vibrant card featuring the grunge rose stamp, barbed wire and sentiments from our FOREVER LOVE stamp set…


Happy Saturday! I hope you are all doing well and having a great summer.

Today I’m playing with the Visible Image ‘Forever Love’ set and a background I made using Dina Wakley Media Spray. I love the vibrant colors of this spray and the unique look it gives to any background.


grunge rose stamp | forever love | ink sprays | card


I used the a variety of gloss sprays for my background and once it was dry I stamped the barbed wire in black, and then gold ink along the edge of my card.



I then used my Zig Clean Color Brushmarkers and colored up the roses in blues and yellows, and cut them out to frame the corners of my card.

I applied the flowers to my card base with foam tape, and then added some gold Nuvo drops on the flowers.



To complete my card, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with gold and added it to the middle of my card.

Beautiful Rose Stamp | CAS Card

Hi! Sharon is here on the blog today with a really beautiful CAS card featuring the rose stamp from our FLOWER ART set with our RIPPLES stencil…


Hello there. Today I have a quick CAS [clean and simple] card for you using some Visible Image stamps and a stencil. I really hoped I’d have time to make a few more cards using the other two flowers in the stamp set… but as usual, time ran away from me.


Beautiful Rose Stamp | CAS Card



Here’s how I made this one:


First swipe some ink onto a glass mat and spritz with a tiny bit of water. Press some acetate into the ink and then place the acetate onto a piece of card to transfer the ink, making sure to leave a large area of gorgeous white space for the sentiment. Dry the ink and then add some more ink to the card using the same technique to add droplets.



Now blend the same colour ink through a stencil over the top of the ink added in the previous step.



Wait for the distress inks to completely dry, then stamp the flower onto the card panel and heat emboss it.

Heat emboss the sentiment too.

Heat emboss the flower once again onto a piece of water colour card.



Take some pens, or water colour paints, and colour the rose and the leaf on the watercolour card, then cut them out.



Layer the panel onto the card blank, then layer the rose and leaf onto the panel. Add a few nuvo drops in white for some texture, and your card is good to go!




Supplies

flower stamps | line drawing | rose | daffodil | tulip | clear | rubber



ripples | circles | stencil | craft | card making | mixed media art



Other Supplies:

White card, water colour paper, piece of acetate, lucky clover Distress Ink, water spritzer, blending brush, Versamark clear ink, WOW! primary ebony mbossing powder, Zig clean color real brushes ( Greens: 040, 048, 049, 400. Pinks/red: 024, 027, 202, 260),  Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss (simply white), 3d foam pads.


That’s it from me for now. Thanks for stopping by and I will be back here again soon.

Hugs,

Sharon xx




This is such a beautiful CAS card, the delicate splashes of ink and ripples look fabulous, and the rose is coloured wonderfully. Those white Nuvo drops really finish it perfectly! Thank you Sharon

Love Postcard | Grungy Rose Stamp

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today! Jane is here with a stunning postcard today, created for our upcoming Create + Craft TV shows this week. Jane’s postcard features the gorgeous grungy rose stamp from our FOREVER LOVE set with our LOVE definition stamp…


Hi there, today I am sharing a postcard. These are fun to make and even to swap, and measure 6″ x 4″, the size of a UK standard postcard. The stamps I used are all on the shows this week.


I worked with the love sentiment from Equality, Hope and Love


equality hope love kindness | definition | sentiment stamps | clear | rubber


and the gorgeous roses and barbed wire stamps from Forever Love


grungy rose stamp | barbed wire | immortal | love | rubber | clear


This is what I got up to


I used a piece of shaving foam marbled card I made with my granddaughter using distress reinkers and sprays. This is a really old crafting technique (I did it as a child with food colouring) and there are lots of on line instructions and videos. I cut it to 6″ x 4″



I stamped and embossed the love sentiment from  Equality, Hope and Love and then stamped the barbed wire using archival ink onto the left side. These would be my flower stalks.



and then to the right side.



I stamped several of the roses from Forever Love  (I only ended up using a few) onto red card using black ink and clear embossed them. I also cut out some of the centres of some more of the large roses to use for decoupaging.



I stamped and embossed the large rose onto the postcard using red embossing glitter



then I adhered the large rose. I decoupaged it with a couple of extra layers of petals. I added a small rose at the top of each barbed wire plant stalks. I finished off with some dewdrops of Glossy accents for extra shine, drippage (is that a word?!?) and dimension.



Here is my finished postcard

with a close up of the decoupaged dewy rose



and a couple more photos

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Miss Your Face | Handmade Tag

Hello! Jane is here on the blog today with a gorgeous handmade tag created with our INK SWIRLS stencil, the quirky rose stamp from our RANDOM ART OF KINDNESS set, and our new MISS YOUR FACE sentiments which is so perfect for the World we are living in at the moment…


Hi there, today I am showcasing some old stamps with some of the new stamps.




I used the awesome new “I miss your face” sentiment from the Lost for Words set:


sentiment stamps | card making | clear photopolymer


with the incredibly versatile new Grunge Tones set


grunge background stamps | dots | circles


plus the gorgeous quirky rose stamp from the Random Art of Kindness set


quirky flower stamps | hand drawn | grungy stem | clear | rubber


and the beautiful Ink Swirls stencil

ink swirls stencil



Here’s what I got up to;


I smooshed some squeezed lemonade and fossilized amber distress inks onto my mixed media mat, added some water and created a watercolour background to my tag.


Next I blended speckled egg distress ink through the ink swirls stencil



Then I stamped using all 3 stamps from the Grunge Tones set using salty ocean ink and first and 2nd generation stamping to give a subtle background



I also stamped and embossed the sentiment  from Lost for Words and the numbers stamps from Random Art of Kindness set and carried on building up the layers.



I added some alcohol ink pearls to heat resistant acetate. I have shared this technique many times before and also demoed it at many a stamp show in 2019. I stamped and clear embossed the roses and cut them out.



I stamped the roses again on the tag and then layered everything up



using glossy accents as my adhesive




Here is my finished tag which I mounted onto black

Design Team Intro | Ali Carubia

Hi there! Next up is another of our existing designers who is staying on the team…


Ali Carubia


Ali is on our BLOGGING TEAM!


We love Ali’s striking cards and fabulous backgrounds, and how wonderfully she interprets and co-ordinates our stamps, stencils and sentiments!



I started crafting about 20 years ago. My style is varied, my favourites are bright colours and silhouettes. I have an extensive collection of paper, stamps, inks, paints and sparkly things!


Follow my blog!


Follow me on instagram!



For my latest Visible Image inspiration I’ve been playing with two fabulous stencils to make a couple of cards for my friends. These were fun and easy to make.


Quirky rose stamp | ink swirls stencil | kindness + friendship | handmade cards


To make the DL card:


Take a A4 piece of 300gsm white stamping card, cut it down to 210mm x 196mm and scoring at 98mm.

Trim the left over strip to 84mm x 194mm to make the card topper.

Tape the Visible Image ‘Ink Swirls’ stencil over the bottom 2/3’s of your card strip with masking tape. Use a brush or blending foam to apply the weathered wood distress oxide ink through the stencil, add a little black soot distress oxide in places – avoid the straight edge at the top of the stencil.

Wipe the ink off the stencil, flip it over and move it over the top 1/3. Match up the swirls as best you can and ink up as before. Flick a little water over your inked card, leave for a few seconds and then pickup the drops with paper towel.



Wipe over another piece of white stamping card with an anti static bag. Then stamp the rose from Visible Image’s Random Art of Kindness 6 times using black versafine ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.



Fussy cut the roses, I cut slightly outside of the embossed lines.



Colour the roses with a base coat of orange ink and then add the red and pink ink.


Use the remaining orange and pink on your applicators to colour a sentiment from the ‘Words of Support’ stencil onto white card with the orange at the top and the pink at the bottom.

Heat emboss with clear embossing powder as before.

Trim the sentiment and mount it onto a scrap of black card with a border of about 1.5mm (1/16″).



Stamp the flower stem 3 times using black versafine ink as above and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Glue your inked piece onto a larger piece of black card with a border of about 3mm (1/8″).



Glue 3 of the roses flat onto the topper using pva glue. Shape the remaining 3 roses using your fingers and use 3d foam to fix them onto your card.



Use a white gel pen to add highlights to the flower heads, then doodle around the outside of your card with a fine black liner pen.

Colour the circles on the stems with a red pen and then cover these with glossy accents.

Attach your card topper to the white DL card blank you made earlier and attach the sentiment using 3d foam to the bottom right hand corner.


Your finished card will look like this 😎




To make the square card:


The process is the same except you don’t need to move the stencil and only 4 roses are needed. I found this card even quicker to make 😀


The measurements for the 6″x 6″ square card are:
card topper – white stamping card 130mm x 130mm
black card matt – 138mm x 138mm


I used a different sentiment and a couple of adhesive gems on this one…

Forever Love | Grungy Rose Stamp

Hi! We are back with another gorgeous project to inspire you today! Lynda Hall has created a stunning mixed media card with our FOREVER LOVE set which includes a gorgeous grungy rose stamp, barbed wire and complementary elements…



It’s my turn to share a little Visible Inspiration today and with January drawing to a close, my thoughts have turned to cards for Valentines Day. The recently released ‘Forever Love’ set is perfect for such an occasion.


handmade valentine card | stamping | grungy rose | forever love


I began with a gelli print that I had previously created with the ‘Meshing Around’ stencil. A great start for some lovely texture.



I defined the circular edge to the stencil with a light application of Distress ink to add another layer.



I added some stamping with the script stamp from the ‘Scripted Streets’ stamp set, than stamped and embossed the large rose and border stamps with my stamping platform, which enabled me to line them up perfectly, then added the sentiment.



I stamped and coloured the large and small roses and fussy cut out.



Using 3d glue gel I layered them up, and added highlights with a white pen.



To finish I coloured the skulls in white, and added some black and white splatters of watered down acrylic paint.

There is currently a Hope and Colour challenge running over on the Visible Image Facebook group, with a chance to win a coupons to spend on the website so why not pop across and play along. It’s always so lovely to see what people create with Visible Image stamps and stencils!




Wowee this is amazing Lynda! We love the gorgeous pink and purple tones, and the layered roses look fabulous against your wonderful background!
Thank you Lynda ♡
