Good Morning and thank you for coming to see us today 🙂
Can you believe we are half way through the week already? Time is just flying by! Not only are we busy making so many orders for our NEW releases, but we have also been busy finalising our Christmas 2015 stamps designs… and we know you are going to LOVE them 😉
On to today’s business… It’s Wednesday which means the fabulous Kim Robertson is here to inspire you!
How are you all? I hope everyone is doing ok and enjoying a little sunshine and warmth.
I have another card from the fab Visible Image’s new launch of stamps and I really hope you like it..
I went for the clean look again on this one. Well ish… for me anyway haha! But I love the spring out with the old, fresh start vibe to this one.
I started with a square of white card and black archival ink. I stamped the Bronte Border stamp several times in ascending order on the left side .
I then initially stamped my flower head and blotted a lot of the ink off the flower stamp and went around the edge of the flower head again using just the tips of the flower very pale just enough to cast this shadow effect.
The fabulous sentiment from the new launch , so crisp and clean stamps like a dream some polymer stamps can be too squishy I know you know what I mean haha so that if you press too hard the image blurs and does not look clean anymore, never so with Visible Image. They are an absolutely spot on image.
So using the flower head still I used grey inks and black and the tips of the flower to create this 2nd and 3rd generation stamping border which has the impression of movement on the card.
For a little added interest on the left side I decided to take a small piece of the same white card and stamp the matching part of the border all over it, I mounted that onto a small piece of the same blue card with just a tiny border I added a little white velvet bow and foam on the back to raise this piece up from the card but as I used the matching piece of the writing you can hardly tell it is there until you zoom in
Here again is the finished image, I was really pleased how this one turned out although is is pretty clean there is actually a lot of stamping gone into this and I just love these techniques…
The stamps I used on this one were…
Time To Be Happy

What a beautiful card… love the blue and cream combo. Perfect card for someone who’s had a rough time of it and are ready to come out the other side.
Have you got your hands on some of our NEW Express Yourself quotes and sentiments yet? Whether making cards is your passion or mixed media is more your thing, we have the perfect words for your projects! You will find them all HERE.
As you probably know… Our stamps are gorgeously thick, beautifully clear, and so deeply etched that you will always get perfectly stamped words and images.. unless of course you are intentionally going for a more distressed look with your project! They are made with the finest photopolymer available, and every stamp is still hand cut by Mark! Our designs are unique, original and different… we love to stand out from the crowd. We do it our way… and you seem to love it 😉 So thank you!
We’ll be back a little later with an awesome new card from Lisa Nygards 🙂
Have a great day!
Mark & Helen xx
