Time for The Next Chapter

Hi there! Lisa Taggart is here on the blog today with an amazing card featuring our ‘One Kind Word’ stamp set which includes a fantastic typewriter stamp with different greetings which fit on the paper…

hello - typewriter - stamp - card

These are the main products used:

typewriter stamp - rubber - clear

two tone stencil

I used watercolour card. The background was created using inktense blocks. The colour was brushed on with a large brush and blended. The block colour along with white for the top was sponged through the stencil using the square part.

The typewriter stamp was stamped and heat embossed in black on to white card and cut out.

The letters and hearts were stamped in teal ink (first and second generation ink). The centre letters were highlighted using a black posca pen and then black and gold ink splatters added. The main image was added below raised on foam pads. The sentiments were added.

As usual the artwork was edged in black and mounted on to complimentary card stock.

Hope you like it!

Till next time…

Typewriter Stamp | Greeting Card

Hi there! We have so much wonderful inspiration to share with you, so let’s get started!! Sharon Traynor has created an incredible card featuring the typewriter stamp from our ‘One Kind Word’ set…

I love crafting! Don’t you?

For me, it gives me such a great excuse just to play with colour and any bits and pieces that I can lay my hands on in my craft room. So this week I’ve been playing with some more fabulous Visible Image stamps,  brushos, stamping on brushos and creating a distressed look with some embossing glitter – and by that I mean that the glittery elements are not solid but more patchy.

typewriter stamp | greeting card

These brusho colours make such an interesting background for the brilliant typewriter, don’t they? And the loopy border at the top makes it look like the background has been ripped out of a spiral bound notebook too.

It’s been a little hard to capture the glittery elements in the photos, but if you click on the photos and look at them when they are larger you should be able to see bits of the glitter embossing.

So how did I make this?

First, wet the water colour card and sprinkle a tiny bit of brushos on. If the brushos don’t move enough, use the smallest amount of sprayed water to help them along. Dry with a heat tool.

Stamp the ‘cracks’ in distress ink and emboss with embossing glitter. The large cracks were stamped with salty ocean then heat embossed  with clear multi sparkle embossing glitter. The small cracks were stamped with antique linen and heat embossed with clear sparkle embossing glitter.

Stamp the typewriter with black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Mask each word in the sentiment separately and stamp onto the typewriter paper part with black ink then clear emboss.

Fussy cut the typewriter image.

Stamp the word ‘incredible’ with salty ocean distress oxide onto a scrap piece of card and heat emboss with clear sparkle embossing glitter.

Punch out a loopy border and attach it to the top of the brusho piece of card.

Cut pieces of blue glitter card to fit as mats for the brusho background and the ‘incredible’ sentiment, and then back these and the  typewriter with fun foam.

TIP: cut the middle of the glitter card mat for the background so that the foam on the back of that piece can be adhered directly onto the card blank.

Glue the large blue mat and background to the card blank, attach the brusho piece on top (so that the glue/tape runner sticks into the gutted piece and directly onto the card blank.

Attach the typewriter, then the blue mat for the sentiment, and finally the sentiment.

Draw a random dot/dash pattern around the main image panel and the sentiment.

Stamps Used:




Other Supplies:

Papermill Direct white hopsack card, brushos (cobalt blue, orange), distress spritzer, distress oxides (salty ocean, antique linen), WOW! embossing glitters (clear sparkle, clear multi sparkle), Versafine onyx black ink, Ranger superfine clear embossing powder, fun foam, blue pen, border punch (an old Martha Stewart one).

Write The Next Chapter

Hello! We have Heather Mitchell here on the blog today with an amazing card featuring our awesome new typewriter stamp set which includes two brilliant quotes, and some little greetings that cleverly fit on the paper…

Howdy doody everyone…

All these gorgeous new stamps and stencils from Visible Image have got me rather excited!! I am loving the graphic look to the stencils and know that they are going to be used loads… and the stamps? Well, Mark has pulled his designer hat out of the bag yet again and created some real beauties!!

My make today uses the utterly brilliant One Kind Word stamp set and the Grateful stencil.  So many possibilities with this set and I know both will become firm favourites with everyone.

Really easy make this one. Create a distressed background using a mixture of Distress Ink and Distress Oxide ink pads and spritz with a shimmer spray. To add extra texture, splatter some Antique Bronze Distress Spray Stain and leave to dry.

While drying, ink up the typewriter stamp and stamp twice, fussy cut them both, placing one to the side. With the other, trim around the paper and the bar bit (that holds the paper in place… which I’m sure has a proper name but I have no idea what it is!) and trim a longer piece of paper to fit in the space. Ink all over with a linen coloured ink pad and edge with dark brown.

Stamp the letters and splat with the same Distress Spray Stain as before. When dry, feed the paper through the typewriter and attach some tape on the back to secure in place. Take the other stamped typewriter image and attach foam tape to the front. Secure the (now complete) other image over the top.

Before adhering to the background, take the Grateful stencil and mask off various areas to give a random look. Apply red ink through the stencil and then stamp the sentiment to the bottom of the background before attaching the main image. Once in place, curl the corners for added effect and voila!

Here are the two new Visible Image products I used…

Release date isn’t far away now… just a few more days! We have been really busy shipping orders off to stockists all around the world today, so keep an eye out in your local store or favourite online retailer over the next week! Today’s inspiration comes from Jane Tyrrell and features our (already) incredibly popular ‘One Kind Word’ stamp set, which includes a brilliant typewriter stamp and so much more…

Good Evening

It’s the 1st of October and a Monday so of course that means it’s my day for sharing my Monday Design Team make for Visible Image.

Today I am sharing for the first time a card I made using the brilliant One Kind Word set.

typewriter stamp - time to write the next chapter

Now don’t tell anyone, but this is my favourite. I have honestly been looking for a vintage typewriter stamp where I could actually stamp words on the paper for years. Well now I can. It is such a clever set and I am sure is going to be a best seller. It works for so many occasions and for card making, journalling etc etc.

I had a lovely Friday and Saturday creating in my garden studio. There was wall to wall blue skies and sunshine and I loved being outside. I have noticed the signs of autumn though all around me.


We are starting a new challenge today over on our Visible Image Facebook group. The theme is “Autumn Colours”. So dig out your brown, yellow, orange, gold, mauve, red and other autumnal colours and your Visible Image stamps/stencils. We would love for your to join in! The winner is randomly selected so whether you are a novice or experienced stamper you have a chance of winning the £40 voucher to spend over in the shop.

My card was made in shades of browns to hopefully give some inspiration for our new “autumn colours” challenge, I also wanted to create a vintage feel to it.

I was very taken by one of the 2 sentiments in this set “time to write a new chapter” and I had a light bulb moment when I was sitting in my studio. I had decided to include my much used vintage book pages from “A tale of 2 cities” donated by my Hb.

As I was thinking of how I would use them in my design I thought that I could actually find a page that was the end of a chapter, ready to start a new one. I found a suitable page and stamped the sentiment and the letters flourish in brown ink. I also cut out the paper part and stamped the words, “You are loved” in brown ink. I put some foam under the top of this and glued down the base to add some dimension.

I made a “book” with my vintage book pages and aged them using vintage photo distress ink plus a little tearing and peeling here and there.

I stamped,embossed and fussy cut out my typewriter and stamped the small and large hearts and matted up my card.

Here it is..

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a very happy October, the year is just racing by now.

Back soon.

Bye for now,

Jane your card is amazing! What a brilliant idea to set it on an actual end of a chapter from a great book! Love all the torn edges and the distressing too. Thank you ♡
