Butterfly Effect Stamps | Handmade Bookmark

Hello! It’s almost the weekend! Yay! We hope you have some good things planned. Ericka is here on the blog today with a gorgeous handmade bookmark created with our stunning BUTTERFLY EFFECT stamps…


Happy Friday! I hope you are all doing well. Summer is in full swing at my house which means some time to relax and hopefully read a couple of books. What better way to keep track of my page than to create a bright and pretty bookmark with the Visible Image ‘Butterfly Effect’ stamp set.

To start making my bookmark, I took out a leftover background I had made using Distress Oxides in Kitsch Flamingo and Savage Patina and a brayer. I then added the smaller images from the Butterfly Effect stamp set in the same colours of Distress Inks. I then added some WOW! Embossing clear powder to add a little dimension.



I stamped the butterflies on Bristol Smooth paper and heat embossed in WOW! Embossing Carnival which is a pretty dark blue with sparkle. I then used my Zig watercolor pens to watercolour them. Once my images were dry, I cut them out and added to my tag.



I added the sentiment from the set and added a big pink ribbon I had in my stash.

Cheshire Cat + T-Shirt Stamps | Tag

Hello! We have stempelfrida here on the blog today with a fantastic project featuring our Cheshire Cat + T-Shirt stamps [the t-shirt is so versatile and a ‘must have’ for your crafty stash!].


I like to colour characters and this cheshire cat has inspired me. Today I have therefore combined two favourite stamps: The shirt and the cat. … and yes! with bright colors, just the way I like it: colorful, flashy and bizarre.


cheshire cat + t-shirt stamps | tag | visible image


First I stamped the t-shirt stamp with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink [a light shade of purple] on black card stock. I fussy cut it, and coloured it with Polychromos pencils [you can see it in the later pictures].



I stamped the Cheshire Cat stamp head with Ink on 3 and coloured it with Copics and Polychromos. After fussy cutting, I painted the edges black, where the white paper shone through.




My background this time is a tag and not a card. The colours are acrylic paints that I applied with a brush. After drying, I drew the black borders. 

The text, which is also included in ‘The Cheshire Cat’ stamp set, I stamped with a Versafine stamp pad.



I stamped the cat’s eyes several times with Ink on 3, coloured them with Copics and Polychromos, fussy cut them and attached them to the background with 1 mm spacer pads. Likewise the teeth on the top right.

The white scratches are painted with a Sakura pen.


Cheshire Cat + T-Shirt stamps


I glued a black ring of cardstock onto the hole of the tag and then pulled through various ribbons. I then attached the cut-off text vertically to the tag.

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

and one final shot

We adore this tag! The quirky rose stamp looks fabulous embossed on the acetate against the grungy background and the white of the ink swirls. Beautiful spring colours too! Thank you Jane ♡

Design Team Intro | Ericka Strange

Hello! As we continue to introduce our new BIGGER Design Team this week, we are thrilled that another of our existing designers is staying on the team…


Ericka Strange


Ericka is on our BLOGGING TEAM!


We adore Ericka’s vibrant compositions and her wonderful [and often very sparkly] embossing!



I’ve been making cards for 5 years and love working with a variety of mediums, getting inky and creating colorful backgrounds. It is so fun being part of such an encouraging and kind crafting community.


Follow my blog!


Follow me on instagram!



I hope you are all doing well. Today I have a fun bookmark/tag I made for my daughter. She’s a first grader and we’ve been working on reading chapter books and asked me to make a bookmark for her. Of course the perfect stamp set for a girl’s bookmark is the Visible Image Believe In Unicorns set.



unicorn stamp | bookmark | believe | Visible Image


I love this image as well as the great sentiment. I had the perfect background I had previously made using acrylic paints and a brayer and started by taking the unicorn image and stamping it with WOW! Embossing ink. I used the Emerald Creek Gold Sparkle embossing powder for the unicorn because it is both gold and sparkly!


unicorn stamp | gold embossing


I then stamped the stars around the image and heat embossed them with Emerald Creek Arctic Daybreak which is a white with gold flecks.



I stamped then created a black tag using cardstock and attached my background. I stamped the sentiment in the same Arctic embossing powder. I used my black pen to trace around the image and the “believe” to make it stand out more and then added some white gel pen to the middle of the unicorn.



My little reader is so excited to start her new chapter book with this fun bookmark.


Supplies

Strathmore – Bristol Smooth card
Ranger – Dylusions Paint – Bubblegum
Ranger – Dylusions Paint – Calypso
WOW! Embossing – Clear Embossing Pad
Emerald Creek – Gold Sparkle embossing powder
Emerald Creek – Artic Daybreak embossing powder

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.

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

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




Yet another spook-tacular tag Jane! We can only imagine how much fun you have had creating all of them! Your family will adore them for sure. Absolutely brilliant and so inspiring! Thank you Jane ♡

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

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…

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.


Thanks for stopping by today, and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me.


Bye for now,
