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 ♡

Halloween Tag | Guardian Angel Stamp

Hi there! We have the super talented Jane Tyrrell here on the blog today with a fantastic Halloween tag featuring our Guardian Angel, moth and skull stamps…



Well here we are in October, racing towards the final months of 2019. It is time for my Design Team make today for Visible Image, and I decided that I should make a start on my Halloween tags I make for my big and little babies!


Now this is not supposed to be at all morbid but I really enjoy walking through our parish church graveyard. I appreciate that it is where souls are buried, but I think it is also a celebration of their lives rather than a focus on their death.  On a walk a few weeks back I spotted some awesome guardian angels on some of the gravestones.



The graveyard is a haven for Mother Nature and wildlife, and is a such a peaceful spot to reflect in. The light which shines in through the trees is so very peaceful and uplifting.




For my project own “Guardian angel” project I decided that I would use my Guardian Angel stamp


guardian angel - rubber stamp

together with some stamps in the Glimmer of Light set


moth - rubber - stamp - lightbulb


This is what I got up to…


I stamped the angel onto a piece of black card altered with distress oxide and cut it out.



 I stamped and embossed some of the moths on acetate, cut them out and added gold Glamour dust to the underside of the wings.



I sprayed a mix of pewter distress spray and yellow brushos and pixie powders onto watercolour card and die cut a tag.



I stamped some bulbs, colouring one of the filaments in red and also stamped and cut out half of the sentiment.



I added a mixed media gothic die cut to the tag, rubbing on some metallic gilding wax for some detailing.



I also added a spider’s web for effect and distressed the edges.



Then it was time to put my design together and add a black card border just to focus the detail. I also used one of the small skulls from the Mr Bone Jangles set which I stamped onto a book page and cut out.



Here is my finished tag..


Halloween tag



With some close ups of the details..


 



And one last shot..



Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a walk with me through my local very positive, inspiring graveyard. In all situations, as the sentiment states, “there is always a glimmer of light”.


Back soon.


Bye for now,
Jane x

Love and Be Loved | Tin Man Stamp

Hello! We have some brilliant Wizard of OZ inspiration on the blog today! Lisa has created an awesome MDF tag featuring our Tin Man stamps with lots of amazing texture…



I’m very excited to share a Wizard of Oz Tin Man mixed media piece on an mdf tag today…



Here is the stamp set:


Here are the steps:

I used two embossing folders one panel folder by Tim Holtz and the other from Crafters Companion. I also used matt silver card stock and silver metallic ink from Crafters Companion.
The acrylic paints are from Golden and the silver gilding wax from pebeo.
The grey board cogs are from Imagination Crafts.


I began by creating a distress oxide background using metal patina colours..




























I added some paint to the path on top of the yellow alcohol ink so it was less bright.



Till next time…

Lisa xx




Our Tin Man stamp looks amazing Lisa! Check out that rust! Loving all your embellishments and texture too. Thank you ♡

No Regrets

Hello! Veere Moreels is here with a video tutorial showing how she made her latest tag featuring our No Regrets sentiment stamp and some gorgeous watercolour effects…


You all know I love words on my projects and today is not different. They even get their own place in the spotlight on today’s project. Visible Image has these beautiful sets with strong words perfect for cards, art journaling and I myself used them on a tag today. I had my own twist on them as I felt like they needed to be torn apart and then joined together again.  Strange? Not in my head 🙂





Well I had the camera rolling for you so enjoy the video ^.^

 

Stamps used:


no regrets - karma - stamp



shapes - lines - circles - clear - stamps



rays - stamps - fireworks - sparkle



hummingbird stamp



two tone - background stamp





Veerle this is another wonderful interpretation of the quote! Thank you ♡

Boo! Halloween Crafting

Happy Halloween! We have some spooky Halloween crafting inspiration from Jane Tyrrell this evening…


Good Evening, it’s Halloween, when ghouls and ghosts are the order of the day. Since the birth of my grandchildren I have thoroughly embraced Halloween fun.  I also enjoy making special tags and then giving them on treat bags to my big and small babies.

These are the four Visible Image tags I have made so far…


halloween crafting - tagsSo this is what I got



I have a final one to share…


Again I used the  brilliant Skull Shadow stencil


skull stencil



I cut a black card tag and stencilled the skull using silver ink. I outlined it with white pen and red embossed the small “splat” from Organics


ink splat stamps - tree - branches



into the eye socket




I stamped out and coloured several poison bottles from Alice in Wonderland


alice in wonderland - stamps




and I teamed up the small skulls from the Mr Bone Jangles stamp set

skull stamps - skeleton



with a die cut spider



I also used the Alphabetical stamps

alphabet stamps



to stamp the word BOO, and also red embossed a small cat stamp from Curious Cats

cat stamps - cat face



I red embossed a pair of hands onto black card from the You Are Not Alone set

hand stamps



and fussy cut everything out



I then put my design together…

halloween tag - skull stamps



with a few close ups..







and one last shot…


halloween crafting - tag - skull stamps



and here it is on my Son’s treat bag…



For my big children (average age 30 (!)) I make up their treat bags with Halloween chocolate but also some other non sweet goodies, as my son is not really a sweet eater.



I also made them Halloween gift wrap.. I often make my own gift wrap for family presents. It makes a gift very personal.

I used Mr Bone Jangles again to stamp onto brown paper.


and yes you will spot another tag above…. this one is Daisy’s using the Dark Hearts stencil , Into the Woods stamps and part of the sentiment from the Queen of Hearts set.


Below are a few of them all ready to be opened today… made with lots of spooky love!



Thanks so much for stopping by today and remember to look out for the witches on their brooms tonight….whoooooohooo!


Back soon.

Bye for now,
Jane x

Leave Your Fears Behind

Hi there! We hope you have had a good week. Jane Tyrrell is here with some fantastic Halloween crafting inspiration today…

Good Afternoon

We are well into our monthly challenge over in our Facebook group, where the theme is Autumn colours. You can join in the fun here!

I am sharing my penultimate Visible Image Halloween tag today.


I used the fab Skull Shadow stencil 


skull stencil



Now those who know me well know that I am not a particularly “skull” devotee in my crafting but at Halloween even I love the fun of this imagery.


I wanted my skull to be peeping out from a spooky tree background and so I used 2 of the stamps from the
Organics set.


organic - inky - background stamps



and the tiny tree and leaves from Create it


background stamps - tree- cat - cracks



I wanted my leaves to turn to birds…. a spooky twist, so I also used the birds in flight from the Ahead of our Time set


clockwork orange - dr who - stamps



For the base of my tag I used mustard seed and carved pumpkin distress inks






I then stencilled on my skull using black soot distress ink




I stamped my elements and added the quote from Leave Your Fears set


leave your fears behind - stamps - crow


which I cut up and distressed.



Here is my finished tag…


halloween crafting - tag - skull stencil



with some close ups…









Remember to add your “Autumn colours” Visible Image creations over in our Facebook group, it will be great to see them.



Enjoy the October sunshine and the glorious colours that are surrounding us.
