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…



Kim Johnny

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.

Never EVER Grow Up! @ Visible Image stamps

Good Morning!  🙂

It’s Friday which means fabulous inspiration from Pauline Butcher…



Hi there friends,

 
I expect you’re all getting ready for the festive season, I’m not nearly ready yet, but I shall panic nearer the time, hehehe.
 
I’m here again to share another creation I’ve made using some fantastic Visible Image stamps, one of the new Express Yourself’ range – Never Grow Up.


The other stamps I’ve used are…. the tape measure from The Sewing Room, the numbers from Time after Time, and the stars from Jake Skates Set.

Visible Image stamps - Never EVER grow up - Pauline Butcher



I started off by blending Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry Distress inks, which makes a lovely bright multi colour effect. Using Salty Ocean and the Tape measure stamp, I stamped twice at different angles, masking in the middle so one went under the other, and gently coloured them using some ink and a water brush. I then used the Numbers stamp and Picked Raspberry and stamped under the tape. I stamped the starts randomly, again using the same colours.
 
 
I coloured a separate piece of card for the sentiment and stamped it, mat and layered and added it at a jaunty angle. T finish off I used Stickles to highlight bits of the stamping.
 
 
My favourite stamp from the new range, it seems to have been made for me !!!
 
Don’t forget to join in the very last Visible Image Blog Challenge, the theme is ‘Tis the Season’, and it doesn’t have to be Christmas, it can be just Winter. All the rules and details for a chance of winning a £20 coupon for new stamps are HERE.

There is also a call out for Visible Image Design Team member, if you love stamping and colouring characters, read all the details HERE.
 
Thank you for popping in, I really appreciate it,

Hugs, Pauline xxxxx
