Lip Smacking Good Stamps @ Visible Image

Good Evening ūüôā Thank you for coming to visit our blog.

We have a few brilliant tutorials to share with you this evening!

Over to the very fabulous Kim Robertson…

Hello everyone!

Nice to be here with you.

So I was playing with my stamps and I remember the gorgeous lips in the Bite Me set so I decided to have some nice bright lips on a grey background. Electric blue lips would look so good here too but I chose to go for red and glittery!

So here is the card….

2015-08-28 Visible Image stamps - Grungy Lips - Bite Me - Kim Robertson


And of course me being me I added some vampy fangs in there haha..

I really do love backgrounds like this which I created with just a few greys and a black soot blended edging. You can do this with almost any colour tone on tone to make it have the same sort of effect and then just one pop of colour makes the picture really stand out.

So If you like this card just keep watching to see how to do it…

To start I took a piece of white card and used some grey flannel momento ink and stamped with the Bronte script stamp which everyone knows is one of my absolute favourites, no need to cover the centre as we will be covering that up.

Next I used the same grey ink and a piece of cut and dry to bend in the edges a litte along with a little weathered wood and some London fog ink from momento too. I did go back and add a tiny bit of the black much stronger around the very edge as it really make it a stand out. I set this piece aside for now.

On a smaller piece of card in red momento dew drop ink I stamped the lips and using several distress pens and a black pen and a white gel pen I added all the shade and highlights from the lips.. I drew around the edge of the lips in grey to make them stand forward and added some fangs on the edge of teeth.

I took some white glue that dries clear and added some glass glitter with shards of glass very finely cut but so very sparkly just on the lips no where else. I also matted that piece on to a thin black mat of card.

The backing piece was also matted onto black card and I added the words that came with the lips which was simply “Bite Me lol”.¬† I used back archival ink for that and got a nice dark image.

I gave the whole back piece a mat and layer in black and white with a little foam under to raise the centre up just sightly, then I was ready for the centre to be added to the card with thicker foam.

To finish it all off I simple added the dot to the I with a square gem some tiny hand cuffs that dangle so cute plus a couple of locks and a key and lastly some shiny stones in the corner.

Here are some other images of the now finished card, the time that took the most i used to get the lips shaded perfectly with several different distress ink pens.

I chose this angle so you could see me how the little items help play a part in the role of this card and how embellishments can help really theme a card.

So the stamps from the amazing Visible Image used on this card are shown here…


Lots of love for today my friends.

Grungy Lips – Funky Friday @ Visible Image

Hello There! Thank you for stopping by today ūüôā

Design Team members Sue Joseph and Pauline Butcher have swapped days this week so Fabulous Friday just got FUNKY!

Here’s Suze…

G’Morning ūüôā¬†How are we all?
It’s Funky Friday today, I swapped my ‘Soozie Tooseday’ with the lovely life saving¬†Pauline Butcher,¬†thanks for swapping Mrs B xxx

Today I’m using one of my favourite stamps, I LOVE IT!

To create this Funky card I firstly stamped the  FAB Grungy lips from the Bite Me set in festive berries DI and then coloured in the inside of the mouth using a black promarker.

Used clear gloss WOW to give the lips shine like lip gloss.

For the corners I used the grunge in black soot  DI.  Used a sharp pokey tool to pierce the lip to put the silver ring through and added a gem on to a tooth.

I added some red mirror mosaics and layered onto white Neenah card and black mirror board.

Simple but striking and funky I think.  I love the detail on the grungy lips, very sexy!

Inky Lips – Visible Image stamps

Hi there!  Thanks for coming to see us here on the Visible Image blog today.

Today’s inspiration comes from our awesome US Design Team member Amber Kroening…

Hey guys!  Visible Image has a TON of new stamps!

On today’s card I used¬†Bite Me. =D¬†¬†How cool is this little stamp set!!?? ¬†

I started by lining my card base with black and white polka dot paper.  Next I stamped my lips and sentiment, and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I trimmed it down to size, and used a black marker to add a thin border around the edge.  I added a black and white twine bow, matted this layer with pink cardstock, and adhered it to my card.
