Fabulous inspiration @ Visible Image

Hello There! We had a great time at the Hobbycrafts show in the NEC last week, it was so great to meet lots of our wonderful customers and we also met lots of crafters who hadn’t yet discovered our awesome stamps! We were thrilled to receive so many fantastic comments about our designs, our stand, and of course the amazing samples created by our brilliant Design Team.

Receiving comments like ‘I loved your stand at the NEC, so many exciting stamps’ and ‘Wow your stamps are so different! How have I never seen you before?!’ make all the hard work and long hours so worthwhile! We’d like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who came to see us and bought our stamps 🙂

We’d also like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Pauline Butcher who held fantastic ‘Make & Take’ sessions on our stand throughout the show, even teaching people who had never stamped before to create an awesome tag they were extremely proud of 🙂 Well done!


While we were away at the show our team were busy as always creating such gorgeous things to inspire you, so here on the blog today we will be catching up with all their cards and projects. So… grab yourself a cuppa and enjoy today’s post…

Today I have a mixed media canvas using some fabulous Visible Image stamps!

The canvas is small, about 5 inches by 7 inches.


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Good Times - canvas - inky flower stamp - Kim J


It is primed with white DecoArt gesso. On top of the gesso, I did some random stamping using various Visible Image stamps. Over the base coat I added color using DecoArt paints and Derwent Inktense Color Blocks.

I used the “Good Times” sentiment from the No Regrets set.


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Good Times - canvas - inky flower stamp - Kim J 2


I wanted to try something a bit different to get more texture, so I stamped the awesome Flower INKognito in Archival Ink onto fabric.


I stamped around the edge of the swatch with the ‘splatter dots’ portion of Flower INKognito. In the background you can see a few dots from the Retro Dots Background stamp also.




Sue Joseph

I love this beautiful Poinsettia stamp, it’s adorable <3, the sentiment is from the Baby it’s cold set.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold - Poinsettia stamp - Sue Joseph


For my background I used black and red dylusion spray and shaving foam, love it!

For the poinsettia I used bright white wow embossing powder on black card. Fussy cut and put together with mini sticky pads 🙂


Love that flower a lot!


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold - Poinsettia stamp - Sue Joseph 2




Lisa Nygards


I just love to make christmas cards this time of the year. It starts to build up the right atmosphere before the ”big day”.

The background is made by masking of a square and then add a few different colors of distress ink. I’ve used three different blue, but then I decided to add some pink in the middle at the end. On top of the ink I brushed a small amount of white/clear mica powder. Then I stamped the tree from Rockin’ Around set with black Versa Fine ink pad. Dried it a bit and the brushed on some gold mica powder. It sets even after a while since the ink dry very slow. Brushed of the excess powder.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - White Christmas sentiment - Brush Christmas tree stamp - Lisa Nygards


The sentiment from White Christmas set is stamped with the same ink pad but now on a piece of Vellum. Here the ink dries even slower so I heated it for a while, and then brushed on some blue mica powder on top to coordinate with the blue background. Mounted it on a card base and finally added some bling at the tree.




Teresa Morgan


If you are anything like me you will always be looking for different ways of using your stamps to get as much value for money as you can. This week I have taken a completely non-Christmas stamp set and created a fun Christmas card!



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Alien character stamp - Greetings Earthlings - Teresa Morgan


My background is a piece of white cardstock which I sprayed with Goosebumps spray. (For those of you who haven’t come across this before, it’s a bit like a thinner version of Glossy Accents in a spray bottle. It dries completely clear and raised up, making a great resist for inks). Once dry I blended a couple of blue Distress Inks over the card, then with a damp kitchen towel quickly wiped over to reveal the ‘snow’. Then I added some torn card across the bottom and smeared some Stickles along the edge to create the snowy ground.

I coloured the Alien with Promarkers, cut him out and glued in place. The little Santa hat is drawn freehand, then coloured and glued on his head!


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Alien character stamp - Teresa Morgan


The sentiment is also from the Alien Invader Set. I stamped it in black then added the word Season’s with a red Promarker before cutting out and matting onto red card.




Pauline Butcher

The stamps I used on this week’s card are… Magic of Christmas, the top of the Tree from Rockin AroundSleigh Silhouette, and the small starburst from Sparkle at Christmas.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Believe in the magic of Christmas - sleigh stamp - Pauline Butcher


I started with a background made fom Brusho’s, just sprinkling the colour and spritzing with water, and letting it drip. I stamped the small star using a brusho and water mixture. The Sleigh was stamped using a Blue Versafine ink, along with the top of the tree stamp. The snow is white Frantage plus glitter, and the sentiment was heat embossed in white, and fussy cut. Stickles was added to finish it off.




Susanne Rose


I LOVE shaker cards. And it was time to create my first shaker card with Visible Image Stamps. I picked the White Christmas set because I’m in love with the snowflake. I used it a lot of times during the last few weeks, because it is so awesome and so versatile! On this card I did an embossing resist technique with the snowflake and Distress Ink “Mermaid Lagoon”. I used silver powder to emboss the sentiment onto some Vellum.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Dreaming of a white Christmas stamp - snowflake - Susanne Rose


I decorated the shaker window with dies from Marianne Design and a little bit of snow, beads and sequins. The background is also colored with “Mermaid Lagoon”. It is so easy to build up these cards and they are so beautiful.




Kim Johnny


Have you started getting ready for the Holidays, shopping, wrapping gifts, yet? Just in case you are at the wrapping stage….today I wanted to share a quick gift tag.

I used the Visible Image stamp set, Rockin’ Around.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Brush Christmas tree stamp - Rockin' Around - Kim J


Take a piece of white cardstock or your favorite paper.  Fold the top down almost 1/3 of the way to make the flap. On the underside of the flap you can write your message or greeting.


2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Brush Christmas tree stamp - Rockin' Around - Kim J 2


I stamped and clear embossed the full trees on the inside first. Then I stamped and clear embossed the tree on the top flap. I  masked off the lower ‘underneath tree’ portion with the clear plastic sheet the stamps are covered with for storage, I did not want to get a ghostly image if I did not line it up perfectly.

I added color using Distress Inks in vintage tones. The spritzed with water mist. Once dry there were some areas I wanted to tone down so I used some Dylusions spray ink in white.




Kim Bacon

A simple card today, just white and mauve.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Flower INKognito - Imperfection is beauty - Kim Bacon

I started by painting a piece of card with watercolor paint, Brushos as it happens.


When that was completely dry I used a coarse brush to apply a very very very dry brushing of white gesso in one direction only. Onto that I stamped the Flower INKognito and Imperfection is Beauty sentiment with white embossing powder. I tore the pieces to give a soft edge.


As I had my sewing machine out on the desk behind me I decided to attach all the pieces with stitches. A scattering of white brads and voila!



Lisa Nygards


Today I decided to go real sweet (cute)!

I’ve made a lollipop card. Easy to do with a paper straw and some fantasy on top. I’ve used the BIG Merry Christmas stamp on this one, and embossed the words with Platinum embossing powder. Die cutted the parts and two extra for the backside.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Merry Christmas - Lisa Nygards


Forgot to take a picture on the backside, but it’s only a white circle there in the middle so I can write a message if I like to.



visibleimage-46b-inkywings-2015


I did a double bow and attached a charm to it and then decorated with some bling around the circle.




Teresa Morgan


We’ve all been in Christmas mode for a while now so I thought I’d take a break from the festivities this week and share a funky birthday card.



2015-11-12 Visible Image stamps - Captain Awesome - spaceman character stamp - Teresa Morgan


I have used the amazing Captain Awesome Set to create a fun shaker card! The background is blended Distress Inks with some faux bleach spots (created by splashing some water then dabbing off with kitchen roll). The image is coloured with Promarkers, then cut ut and glued onto the background.

I die cut a circle aperture in some teal card, stamped and embossed the sentiments, then attached some acetate behind the aperture. This is mounted on 3d foam with some star sequins inside.

Doreen OBrien


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - You Are Loved - Doreen OBrien


For this card I have used a Technique called ‘Josephs Coat Technique’. It is basically a Resist embossing technique. I have used distress inks and the gorgeous “You are Loved” stamp for this. xxx



Susanne Rose


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Gift Box - Susanne Rose


I’d like to share a stamped Christmas box today. I embellished it with the lovely Poinsettia stamps from Visible Image and two die cut ornaments from Noor! Design.

The box is cut with the Silhouette Cameo out of kraft cardstock and embossed with the script stamp from the Visible Image Revolution set and white embossing powder. I distressed the edges of the box with a scissors. The poinsettias are stamped with a darker red on red cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. Now I only need to fuzzy cut the flowers and adhere the pieces together.

2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Baby It's Cold Outside - snowflake stamp - Tag - Kim Johnny 2     2015-09-29 Visible Image - Baby It's Cold Outside - snowflake stamp - Tag - Kim Johnny 2


Today I have a bit more winter spirit inspiration to share. I used one of the new Visible Image Christmas stamp sets, “Baby, it’s cold outside”. The snowflake is so detailed and so awesome for any Winter project.

The background is layered with some stencil work, Tim Holtz “Gothic” with modeling paste. Then several layers of DecoArt acrylic paint, antiquing cream and some Distress paint. I used Ranger Super Fine White embossing powder on the beautiful snowflake and sentiment.



Karen Liddle


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Snowflakes & Butterflies verse stamp - Karen Liddle

I created the swirly background using the shaving foam technique, such a fun thing to do!  I then over stamped that with the snowflake stamps from the White Christmas set, and heat embossed using white embossing powder. Then I stamped and mounted the Snowflakes & Butterflies verse (which was written by Helen).



Kim Bacon


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Imagine Dream Inspire - Kim Bacon

Here is my inspirational piece for you today on this wet, and somewhat autumnal day! I have used the Imagine Dream Inspire stamp set, Grunge Polka Dot background stamps and the scribbles circle stamp from the Universal set.



Sue Joseph


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Time is precious - melting clock stamp - Sue Joseph


For my CAS tag today I used 2 inks Memento tuxedo black and festive berries DI (My favourite red).

The stamps I used are Time is Precious, ‘Take Risks’ from the Be Happy Set and ‘Tick Tock from the White Rabbit setLayered and matted onto red and black card with some red fibres and an eyelet to finish 🙂



Lisa Nygards


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Robot Note Holder - Lisa Nygards


Today I have something to show that isn’t Halloween, and it isn’t Christmas either. I have manage to do something else – lol. I spend my weekend at a crop in Norway and got some inspiration for a tag so I just had to play a bit. This is what ”came out” of it. I’ve use the Robot Data Set from Visible Image for this tag.

I started with stamping the numbers on my white tag with embossing ink. Then I used clear powder. Then I started to mist and drip a bunch of different colors on the tag until I was satisfied. I ran the tag through an embossing folder to get some structure, and added a dark distress ink around the edges. I added a bunch of embellishment and colored my hug snug ribbon with mists and alcohol inks.

When the tag was ready and the robot mounted with 3D foam I covered the whole robot with Diamond Glaze.




Teresa Morgan


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Grunge Flourish - Merry Christmas - Teresa Morgan


I am sharing a quick and easy card – perfect for those of us who have a lot of Christmas cards to make and not a lot of time. I’ve used the fabulous Merry Christmas XL and Grunge Flourish from Visible Image stamps.

I stamped the flourish in each corner and embossed with Candy Apple embossing powder from WOW powders. The sentiment is embossed in black and layered onto a die cut oval. The whole thing is matted onto silver mirri card for a bit of Christmas bling!



Doreen OBrien


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Christmas cards - Doreen OBrien


I have a pair of Christmas Cards for you today. I used a distress resist technique for the backgrounds using the Snowflake from the White Christmas set. I have also used the “White Christmas sentiment” and Merry Christmas sentiment. xxx



Susanne Rose


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Cookie cup - Susanne Rose 2      2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Cookie cup - Susanne Rose


It’s my day today to share some inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I’d like to share a “Cookie Cup” today, which is decorated with the super cool “Rockin’ Around” set from Visible Image.

The Christmas tree and the sentiment is stamped with Memento Luxe ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The cup is a cutting file from Silhouette Store. The tree is cut with the Pix Scan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.



Kim Johnny


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Create Your Imagination - Kim Johnny 2


I started off making a postcard, so it is 4 inches by 6 inches on mixed media paper. I added lots of fun layers of Distress Ink and water. I have just picked up some of the micro beads and wanted to play with those too.  Then I was looking at my dies and have this Spellbinders Aster flower that was calling out to me, so I had to make one! I really like how it frames the awesome sentiment by Visible Image, “Create your imagination” from the “This is me”,set. So now my postcard has dimension, which is really fun but I don’t think it would go into the mail system very well as a traditional postcard! So it is a small canvas with lots of color!



Karen Liddle


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Where Dreams Take You - Karen Liddle

The background was created with Distress Inks, and over stamped with the Where Dreams Take You and Plasma stamps. The sentiment was heat embossed with gold embossing powder.



Kim Bacon


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Live Life Now - Ink Splats - Kim Bacon

I started with a Brusho coloured piece of card in shades of purple, lime and teal and added the really useful Bronte Script stamp using teal ink. Just a hint of it stamped randomly but always level. I added some ink splats stamps in purple and teal. When that was done I cut the piece down before sewing it to a matting layer of cream watercolour card.

The tag was cut from another coloured piece of card but this time instead of the big purple splats I used the Live Life Now sentiment. Again I sewed this to a cream mount. Both these mounts were then roughed up along their edges. I added some brads to the tag, my current favourite embellishment!



Sue Joseph


2015-09-29 Visible Image stamps - Funky Background - Mistakes make us wiser - Sue Joseph


I got a new toy at the weekend, I’d had one as a child and didn’t think they were made anymore!
But they do, only the name is now ‘Art spinner’ not ‘Twirl o paint’. All it is is basically a spinning motor, you attach your card on top and drop your ink/ paint onto it whilst its spinning! Each creation is always different, I’ve made lots lol so watch this space!

So for today’s I used some shimmer paints on neenah card and my fave Visible Image stamp Flower INKognitoIt’s just so bold and grungy I LOVE IT! The superb sentiment I used is ‘Mistakes are good they make us wiser’ from the Sunshine SetBoth stamps are heat embossed in black ebony wow.

It seems to be all about backgrounds at the moment which is ideal for Visible Image stamps 🙂

The paint I used have a gorgeous shimmer on them but unfortunately the camera doesn’t pick it up 🙁

I mounted my card onto black and cerise mirror board which really complements the cerise and black in the design 🙂  I hope you like it and there’ll be lots to follow haha!



Lisa Nygards


2015-09-30 Visible Image stamps - Boys Christmas card - Lisa Nygards 4


Ho Ho Ho! Does anyone know if Aliens celebrate Christmas? I have no idea, but why not? I think this guy from Visible Image wants to, if he just can get some snow! Alien is from the Alien Invader Set, Tree is from Rockin’ Around, and the sentense is from the set White Christmas.

I’ve distressed a piece of kraft cardstock with some brown and green ink. Then I stamped the trees with the same green ink I just used. They are misted with water before stamped. When it was dry I splattered some white and glitter white mists as snow on the piece. Added sequins and bling for snow on the ground and some sequins as ornaments in one of the trees. Finally I stamped the sentense and mounted the red Alien with 3D foam and mounted the piece on a Kraft Card.




HUGE ‘Thank you’s’ to everyone on the team for your amazing work!


We love the way that our team think ‘outside the box’ and it’s always so exciting to see what they create with our stamps 🙂  You will find all the links to our Design Team blogs HERE.

I love to create moon/sun scapes.  I masked of the moon and used Black Soot DI, applied with a brush to create the sky, making it slightly lighter at the bottom.  I removed the mask and added the trees, stamped in Adirondack Oregano, I stamped the sleigh with Versafine Onyx Black.  I finished off with sentiment heat embossed in silver.

Good Evening!


Apologies for missing yesterday’s post… we are in full swing making all the stamps to bring to Ally Pally next weekend and Exeter the following week! As you probably know, we make and package all the stamps ourselves, just the two of us! Even hand cutting every single stamp.. so I’m sure you can imagine how busy it gets!  Good job we love it 😉


Lisa Nygards has some fantastic inspiration for you using our NEW Christmas stamps…

 

Hi,

I’ve done two pretty easy Christmas Cards today for Visible Image, using two of their new stamp sets. White Christmas and Rockin’ Around. Then I added the beautiful Vintage Car.

On the card with the car I’ve brayered the background on glossy cardstock with Kaleidacolor ink pad. Then stamped with black Staz On. The white card is just plain single layer and stamped with a blue Distress Ink. For the sentense I misted some water on top of the stamp before stamped, and the snowflake is stamped and then embossed with a clear and glittery powder. (Can hardly be seen at the photo).

2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Believe In The Magic Of Christmas - Teresa Morgan


My mind is still turning towards Christmas and this week I have gone for a non-traditional colour combination.

I used the star stamp from the Universal set and randomly stamped and embossed using Versamark ink and red, yellow and green embossing powders.

I stamped the Magic of Christmas sentiment with Versamark and sprinkled red and yellow embossing powder to create a stripe effect. I love the way that the colours pop from the black background – just remember to check that your embossing powders are opaque when using a dark background…these are from WOW powders!




Lisa Nygards



2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Merry Christmas - Lisa Nygards


I have a hard time thinking about Christmas already, but infact I like to make Christmas Cards. Don’t know how that goes around… lol. Today I have made a card for Visible Image, and used their awsome sentense Merry Christmas XL. Yes – it is BIG! I like that, it gets total focus.

I’ve used a brown distress ink pad, but before I stamped I misted it with water to get the sentense a bit ”softer”. Then, before it dried I covered it with clear embossing powder. I was probably a bit slow, since I missed a few spots that was already dry. But I think it adds texture and life and it feels a bit old.




Karen Liddle



2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Believe In The Magic Of Christmas - Karen Liddle

I inked through a Memory Box Stencil, then heat embossed the Magic of Christmas sentiment stamp in silver.  This made a nice quick card.

2015-09-05 Visible Image stamps - Merry Christmas - Snowflake Tag - Susanne Rose


Today I’m sharing some more inspiration with the super unique Visible Image Stamps. I’d like to show you some of the new Christmas Stamps from Visible Image. The snowflake is wonderful and the Merry Christmas sentiment looks so precious!

My base is a tag which is primed with black Gesso. After it was dry I added some white PanPastel color to let it look like a chalk board. This will also work with normal white chalk. The snowflakes and the sentiment from the White Christmas set are stamped with a white pigment ink. I love it, that the white is not 100% opak. That give it a real chalk board look. It’s also possible to work with white embossing powder, but that doesn’t look so real.




Kim Johnny



2015-09-06 Visible Image stamps - Rockin Around - Christmas Tree - Kim Johnny

Today I want to share an art tag I made for Visible Image stamps using the awesome Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree stamp set, new for 2015.

I went all vintage tones using DecoArt Crackle, Decoupage Paper medium, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Distress Spray ink and various alcohol inks.


 

The Distress Spray made a nice shimmer on the trees. It is stamped using Fern Green Archival ink.

 

 

I used DecoArt Crackle medium on top of some papers I had layered for the bottom of the tag using Decoupage Paper medium.

 


I added some alcohol inks to highlight the cracks once dry. The tag is edged with Potting Soil Archival Ink.




Thank you so much ladies, awesome work as always 🙂
