Be True To Your Roots | Card

Good Evening! We have Judy Rozema here on the blog this evening with a beautiful card featuring our ‘Into The Woods’ forest stamps, which include some really inspiring sentiments. Check out Judy’s stunning sky…

I am here to share one of my Visible Image creations with you today.

I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Into the Woods, and some Distress Oxide Inks for the background. My background started out as a “brush cleaning” piece of cardstock for another project, and then it started looking like a cool sky, so I saved it. For this project, I just added more ink until I liked how it looked, and then splattered with water for stars.

I stamped the silhouette images with VersaFine Clair Nocturne and Morning Mist. The sentiment was stamped on and cut from the extra background pieces. I wrapped the panel with rainbow colored thread from my stash for some fun sparkle, and to connect the two panel parts.

I love how it turned out. And I really love this stamp set! Thanks for taking a peek!

Stamps Used:

forest stamps | trees | be true to your roots

We love this card Judy! So glad you kept that piece of card, it makes stunning sky behind the silhouette trees. Thank you

Christmas Card | Tree Branch Stamp

Good Evening! We have even more fantastic inspiration for you today as Martha is here on the blog with a stunning Christmas card, cleverly created with non-Christmas stamps…

For my DT post for Visible Image, today I share a Christmas card made with a ‘no-christmas’ stamp set, in fact the focal images are from the Night Owl while the date border is from the Christmas Chaos set.

First of all I prepared my background blending some Distress Ink

Then I stamped around the edges the branch from the ‘Night Owl’

Some water spritzs to create a snowy look

I colored with Nuvo Shimmer Powder another cardstock on wich I stamped
the round element

and then punched three circles

With a metallic thread I ‘hung up’ my ornaments

I finished my card with the date border from the ‘Christmas Chaos’

Some glitter spritzs and my card is finished 🙂



Stamps Used:

night owl | flying | stamp

christmas tree | grunge | stamps | mixed media

This is such a creative card Martha! Your snowy sky is beautiful and the log baubles look fantastic hanging from the branches. Thank you ♡

Skull Shadow Moon | Visible Image

Hello and Happy Monday to you! We have a real mix of inspiration coming your way today.. Halloween… Christmas… and NEW stamps! First up is Lisa Taggart with some incredible Halloween art work featuring our skull stencil…

Hello my friends it’s Visible Image day and today we are getting spooky! I’ve had a lot of fun creating this Halloween scene.

skull stencil - halloween card -  leave your fears behind

Here are the visible image products used:

skull stencil

trees stamp - forest - stay grounded

crow stamp - branch - leave your fears behind

The Steps:

Firstly an ink spray background dried and cut down to size.

I created a moon using white gesso.

Using the stencil I carefully sponged the image using distress oxide ink I then enhanced the stencilled image using inktense coloured pencils, a charcoal pencil and some more distress oxide ink.

I masked the moon and created some splatters using watered down white gesso.

I then began the stamping. I also gessoed the right side of the moon again as I wanted the eye sockets and nose to be the main dark areas. The hill was made through a torn copy paper mask and black ink.

I used all of the tree shapes for background interest. I highlighted parts with my white pen. For the foreground I used parts of the tree stamps ( small branches) from both stamp sets and pale distress oxide ink. I roughly drew in the grave stones using soft pastel and a black pen.

Finally I stamped the sentiment and later highlighted it in white.

The close ups:

You will find plenty more inspiration from the rest of the team and our group members on Facebook. Our friendly Group is here check it out for inspiration and support.

Till next time…

Lisa xx

Oh wow! What an incredible Halloween scene Lisa, the skull stencil looks fantastic in the moon, and your sky is gorgeous! Thank you ♡

Tree of Life Stamp | Handmade Card

Hello! So sorry we have been neglecting our blog lately.. but we are back and we have loads of gorgeous inspiration to share with you from our amazing Design Team and wonderful guest designers! Pauline Butcher is up first, to inspire you with a fabulous card featuring our Tree of Life stamps…

Hi there,
I’m sharing a new creation I’ve made using a couple of awesome ‘Visible Image’ Stamps.

tree of life stamp

The stamps I have used are:

Tree of Life 

tree of life - stamp

and the sentiment from Just Breathe.

anatomy stamp - breathe

I started with some black card, on which I stamped and heat embossed the tree with Wow Fluorescent Green Embossing Powder. I then stamped and heat embossed the smaller leaf from the set, with clear embossing powder.

Using a white pencil, I scribbled the ground around the tree, and gently shaded a moon behind the tree. Using a Glitter Pen, I coloured in the tree leaves, and added touches of glitter to the other leaves.

I had a piece of card left over from a session doing the shaving foam technique, and stamped the human figure twice onto it, and fussy cut them. I then stamped two more, one on blue card and one on pink card, and again fussy cut them.

I finished it off with the sentiment, stamped and heat embossed in black powder, then added some Stickles for that bit of sparkle!

Hugs, Pauline xxxx

Wow what an awesome card Pauline! Your embossed leaves look stunning and the figures look so striking in those vibrant tones! Thank you ♡

Ray of Light Stamp

Hi there! Heather Mitchell is here on the blog with some amazing inspiration featuring our ‘Into The Woods’ stamps with our ‘Strobes’ stencil and the ‘Ray of Light’ stamp from our NEW ‘Set The Tone’ background stamps set…


Hello everyone

The weather has taken a definite chillier turn in the past few weeks, and I for one just love the Autumn.  The darker, cosier nights, the smell of a log fire and the excuse to hibernate in your craft room in your PJ’s when you get in from work!

Near me, there is a beautiful Maple tree and I just love the reds, oranges, golds and yellows it’s showing at the moment and it inspired me to make today’s make…

autumn sky - forest stamps - rays stencil


In amongst the new October releases from Visible Image, is a fabulous background set of stamps, Set the Tone and I know we’re going to be firm favourite!  I had the idea to make an Autumnal sunset using the ray of light stamp (that’s what I’ve been calling it anyway!) and the Strobes stencil.

rays of light stamp - stencil

After making the background (using Distress Oxide Ink Pads), I’ve used the Strobes stencil to add a subtle sunbeam effect before using the ray of light stamp with gold embossing powder.  The ‘sun’, also heat embossed in gold, is the circular ink splat from the Organics set.  To add finer detail, I’ve used the polka dot stamp (also from Set the Tone) randomly around the sun and it’s beams.

To add depth to the scene, I’ve stamped the first stamp using a grey colour and I love that it’s stamped a bit mottled as I feel it add to the effect.  The rest of the stamps are all in black and I used a stamping platform for these as I didn’t want to run the risk of it not stamping correctly!

To finish, I’ve sponged grey and black inks around the edges and matted it onto both a Marigold colour and black card before adhering to a card blank.  I decided not to add sentiment to the card as I didn’t think it needed one… I love it just the way it is!


Here’s a look at the Visible Image products I’ve used for this make:

rays of light - two tone - background stamps

forest - tree - stamps

organic - ink splats - stamps

See you again soon,

H xx


Brighten The World

Hi there! Lisa Taggart is here on the blog to brighten the world with a stunning card created with our ‘Into The Woods’ stamps with our ‘Vivid Colours’ quote…

I’ve got some beautiful Visible Image stamps today, and a scene that is surprisingly easy to create. All you need are your Spectrum Noir sparkle pens in sunset colours, some torn copy paper and of course your ‘Into The Woods’ stamp set and the lovely sentiment!

Here’s how it looks:

brighten the world - sunset scene - card - Visible Image stamps

Here are the products:

forest stamps - tree stamp - visible image

let your vivid colours brighten the world - quote stamp


To create the background I sprayed some water colour card with water. I squeezed some colour from the pens on to my craft mat – blues, purple, pink, orange and yellow. Using a paint brush and water I laid down the colours and let them bleed together (wet on wet). When dry, I inked against a piece of roughly torn copy paper using grey versa fine ink. I stamped the focal image and owl in black and, using parts of the tree stamps, I stamped around the edges and on top of the torn paper (black at the front and 2nd and third generation ink to create dimension). The sentiment was then added and the picture mounted on to complimentary card.

Here are a few close ups:





Hope you like it!

You’re Stronger Than You Think

Hello! Hope you are having a great weekend! The sun in shining here in Wales, it’s absolutely gorgeous! And we have some gorgeous inspiration coming your way here on the blog today too. Jane Tyrrell has combined 2 stamp sets from our April release to create and amazing card. If you know someone going through a difficult time this card would be perfect for them, to remind them ‘you’re stronger than you think’…

Good Evening, 
it’s time for my weekly DT make for Visible Image and today I am using stamps from the So Much Stronger set

inspiring quote stamps - visible image

and the single tree from the Into The Woods set

forest - bare tree - stamps - visible image

I made an alcohol ink background, using glossy card stock, gradually adding drops until I was happy

I then stamped the tree and embossed it with Seth Apter’s baked texture embossing powder.. I love these powders as they have “bits” in which give a very different effect

I then stamped and black embossed the sentiment and also some leaves from the super Create it set

small background stamps - visible image

The ‘you’re so much stronger than you think’ sentiment works so well with the tree stamp

I then matted and layered up my card

You're Stronger Than You Think - card

and one more close up

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and for your very kind comments which you take the time to leave.

Back soon.

Bye for now,
Jane x

Into The Forest

Hi there! We are back with more fantastic inspiration today. Heather Mitchell has created 2 amazing cards featuring tree stamps from our ‘Into The Woods’ forest stamps set…

Hello everyone…

I’m back today sharing a couple of makes for Visible Image and once again, I’ve used one of their fabulous new releases – Into The Woods.

The DT has already come up with some absolute stunning makes using this forest stamps set but I can’t seem to get away from making it look dark and moody!

The first card uses a mixture of mediums for the background and once dried, I’ve used the largest stamp from The Ripple Effect with a clear embossing powder to create another texture.

Forest stamps - visible image


To break up the sky, I’ve stamped Scripted Streets randomly in a deep brown as well as taking the stripes from the Stars and Stripe stencil and teaming it with Nuvo’s Hybrid Metro Grey ink pad.  As you can see, the circles from The Ripple Effect has resisted the ink and left a hint of a circle.

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and mix elements of stencils with stamps

The wood landscape stamps are just fabulous.  Lovely and wide (they are A5 in width) you can layer them in different colours to create depth, or as I have done here, just used a black ink.  I can see these being hugely popular… especially if you add a hint of white embossing powder to resemble snow – a Christmas scene right there!!

Textures and tones are easily created by different mediums

To finish the card, stamp the sentiments onto grey inky card using a black ink pad and secure to the card using foam tape. Matt onto black and and attach to a card blank… et voila!

My second make today is really moody and quite haunting.

Forest stamps - visible image


The background is similar to the first one, generated exactly the same way.  When dry, I’ve die-cut a circle from card and used the negative to add grey Oxide Inks in Hickory Smoke and Iced Spruce.  I’ve used my finger to smudge the ink and once happy with the colouring, I’ve added Nuvo Aqua Shimmer in Glitter Gloss around the edges for a hint of sparkle. Once the mask has been removed, I’ve used Derwent Inktense pencils to add a little yellow to the edges.

The owl has been stamped in the same glossy embossing powder as the trees

The woods have been stamped using Wow’s embossing powder in British Summertime (excellent name for a grey!) and Ebony Superfine Black.

The detail on the large tree is just beautiful!

To finish, add a sentiment.  I’ve chosen ‘always listen to the voices in your head’ as I loved the font and felt it worked well with the moodiness of the card.  Add black ink to the edges and matt onto an olive green card before securing to a card blank.

And here’s the Visible Image products used in todays projects…

Stay Grounded

Good Evening! We have more awesome inspiration here on the blog today! Lisa Taggart has an incredible project to share with you featuring stamps from one of our stunning new stamp sets, which includes some really great quotes, including ‘Grow Stronger’ and ‘Stay Grounded’…

Hello, oh my goodness you are going to LOVE the new releases from Visible Image! This is my first sample using one of the new stamp sets…

Into The Woods

Visible Image - forest stamps - stay grounded

Visible Image - forest stamps - stay grounded


I adore trees! This set is awesome because it allows you to layer the stamps to create dimension. It is so versatile!

I thought I would begin with a night scene for a change. A couple of days previously I was playing with my brusho powders. As usual I got carried away and ended up making several pages of murky  purple smudges. Of course I couldn’t bin them because I’d used precious Sheena stamping card! However the more I studied these leftovers I thought perfect for making galaxies .. as you do!

So the page looked something like this ( the one I used was slightly different)


I got my pastel pencils out and began to highlight the colours and add a few chalky galaxy effects. There was a lot of blending and smudging!

I placed the lightest colour (pink) at the bottom of the sky and stamped the background trees in grey along this area.  Then I stamped the foreground trees in black.


I added a few lines of blue, purple and black in front and used  part of the background set to create shrubbery at the front of the picture.


To create the stars I made splatters using white acrylic ink and a fan brush. The larger stars were enhanced drawing lines with a white pen and a ruler.



I stamped the birds and highlighted the wings using a gold pen.


The brushos had made line marks so I just had to pretend there was a meteor shower going on!


The STAY GROUNDED sentiments were stamped on to lilac card and mounted on foam pads.

I hope you like it!

Lots more exciting stuff to come including must have stencils!!!

Lisa xx


Into The Woods

Hello! We hope you are having a good week! It’s been busy, busy here.. pre-orders have been sent off to our fabulous stockists all over the world, and it’s almost time for all the direct orders to hit the post too! Thank you! Thank you! We are thrilled by how much you are loving our NEW stamps and stencils!!! Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog this evening with more inspiration for our incredibly popular ‘Into The Woods’ stamp set…

Good Evening! I am delighted to be here with my weekly dose of Visible Image design team inspiration. Over the weekend we had record breaking temperatures and it’s hit 28c here! I am loving it. We went to find some shade yesterday in our local woods.

I took some photos for today’s post as I am using the brilliant new Into The Woods stamp set.
This was the view as we went into the woods

The new leaves are all a glorious lime green as they are still so new and tender.

I love looking through at all the different levels of trees.

From saplings to mighty fully mature oaks.

The brand new Visible Image Into The Woods stamp set is absolutely perfect for recreating these magical scenes.

I decided that as I wanted to use all the stamps in the set for my first creation I would set my scene at night time…just imagine… the time when the sun is just going down and the shadows lengthen.

I blended my Distress oxides, I used squeezed lemonade, broken china and lucky clover, onto some heavy weight smooth card stock.

I added a little spritz of water for the stars. I then stamped some shadows using my Versafine Claire ink and the background stamp.


Here we go…the shadows lengthen and the day is nearly done…up in the sky you might just see the stars starting to twinkle.

I then stamped the big tree and also the foreground trees stamp using darker ink (shown in my completed card photo..further on.)

I also stamped, embossed and cut out the words I wanted to use.

I finished off my card with the little owl stamps.

So let’s further set the scene…….imagine that the daytime bird song has be replaced by the hooting of owls…and everyone has gone home from the woods. It is the turn of the creatures of the night to re claim the woods until morning…..

Here is my finished card.

Visible Image - forest stamps - into the woods

The little owl stamps are just delightful. Here are a couple of close ups.

and one last shot

Visible Image - forest stamps - into the woods

I absolutely love this stamp set, there are so many possibilities ..when we visited the woods on Sunday we also found carpets of bluebells

but that’s another story and another creation which I will share soon.

The new stamps and stencils release can be pre-ordered now!

and they will be shipped to you on Friday… don’t miss out!

There are 6 new stamp sets and 8 new stencils… all totally amazing and uniquely Visible Image.

Thanks so much for taking a trip into the woods (and my imagination) with me today. Enjoy this awesome bank holiday Monday and I will be back very soon. Thanks as always for the kind comments you take the time to leave me.

Back soon.

Bye for now,
Jane x

Never Forget Your Story

Hello! It’s a beautiful sunny Bank Holiday here in Wales and we are looking forward to a day off in the sunshine! It’s been so busy here so the rest is welcomed with open arms! Our NEW stamps are well on their way to stockists all over the world, and will be making their way to customers very soon now! Veerle Moreels has beautiful inspiration for you today, featuring stamps from our NEW ‘Into The Woods’ set, which includes our awesome bare tree stamp….

Did you already see the new release Visible Image shared and is available May 11th?  If not, you are missing out on beautiful sets and stencils.  You get the whole deal: great designs and words that give you the chance to tell your story.

I love playing with their words. They are perfect on their own but they also give you a chance to put parts of them together and make whole new sets of words. So versatile and they never lose their strength. On my first project you can see how I brought two different sentences together to make a new one. I have put it on a card here but I can already tell you that I have other plans for this one… for this whole card as a matter of fact ^.^ but I need to go and have myself a bit more paper first.

bare tree stamp - visible image


And then there’s that tree… and those two other tree scenes… and those owls. What can I say other than they are just perfect and they speak to me. So many ideas and I only started stamping them separately, even though they match together so great to make beautiful scenes.

But look at it, just one of the stamps and yet a great silhouette of the woods.

And yes, there are words in the set too…

So don’t hesitate to go and check out the new releases. I’m pretty sure you will get as enthusiastic as I am when you see them ^.^
