Squirrel Stamp | Autumn | Fall Card

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog today. We have lots of gorgeous inspiration to share this week! Lynda is kicking us off with a fantastic Autumn | Fall card created with our NUTS ABOUT SQUIRRELS stamp set, which includes the cute squirrel stamp, acorns, leaves and more…


Autumn has arrived! It’s my absolute favourite season and I just love to craft using it as inspiration, so the new release from Visible Image filled me with joy when I saw it.


Today’s project features the beautiful (and amusing) ‘Nuts About Squirrels’ stamp set.


squirrel stamp | acorns | leaves | autumn | fall | clear | rubber


I wanted to make a woodland scene for my foraging squirrel to sit in, so I began by using a selection of Autumnal coloured Distress Oxide Inks, swiping on my craft mat, spritzing with water and dabbing some watercolour card in, until I was happy with the result.



I then created a tree trunk on craft card by using the log stamp from the set as bark. I coloured this with more distress ink using a water brush, and cut a hole from the top to make a little squirrel home.



Once I was sure where I wanted to position my tree, I stamped a silhouette squirrel inside the hole. I mounted the tree over the top with 3D gel glue, bending it a little to round it and add dimension.



Then came the fiddly part- stamping lots of leaves and acorns and fussy cutting.



I used 3d glue gel again to adhere these , laying some fallen ones on the ground, along with some Flowersoft for added texture, and set my squirrel at the base of the tree.



I finished with a fun sentiment from the set, bordered with black card to make it pop.

This card is amazing! We love how you created the tree using the log stamp, the leaves and acorns look fabulous too… a wonderful Autumn scene for our squirrel stamp!  Thank you Lynda ♡

Butterfly Effect Stamps | Handmade Bookmark

Hello! It’s almost the weekend! Yay! We hope you have some good things planned. Ericka is here on the blog today with a gorgeous handmade bookmark created with our stunning BUTTERFLY EFFECT stamps…


Happy Friday! I hope you are all doing well. Summer is in full swing at my house which means some time to relax and hopefully read a couple of books. What better way to keep track of my page than to create a bright and pretty bookmark with the Visible Image ‘Butterfly Effect’ stamp set.


butterfly stamp | big | large | bookmark | handmade



big butterfly stamp | handmade tag



To start making my bookmark, I took out a leftover background I had made using Distress Oxides in Kitsch Flamingo and Savage Patina and a brayer. I then added the smaller images from the Butterfly Effect stamp set in the same colours of Distress Inks. I then added some WOW! Embossing clear powder to add a little dimension.



I stamped the butterflies on Bristol Smooth paper and heat embossed in WOW! Embossing Carnival which is a pretty dark blue with sparkle. I then used my Zig watercolor pens to watercolour them. Once my images were dry, I cut them out and added to my tag.



I added the sentiment from the set and added a big pink ribbon I had in my stash.

Wings Change Butterfly Cards

 

Art Journal Page | Butterflies Transform

Hi there! Ericka is here on the blog today with a stunning art journal page featuring our WINGS OF CHANGE butterflies with the gorgeous TRANSFORM sentiment…


Hello! Today I’m playing with the Visible Image Wings of Change stamp set along with the Words of Support stencil to make a journal page.


Art Journal Page | Butterflies | Stamps | Transform sentiment


I love these butterflies and thought that it would go perfectly with the Words of Support stencil. I started by creating a background using Distress Paint in Kitsch Flamingo, Speckled Egg, and Blueprint Sketch on my gel plate.



I then took the Words of Support Stencil and used a blending tool to add various words on my panel using the Kitsch Flamingo Distress Paint.



I used the Wings of Change set and added the butterflies to my page using WOW! Embossing Powder in Royal Emerald, Punch, and Mojito for added sparkle.



I then used the stencil with a blending foam and applied WOW! Embossing ink to add gold embossed words.



I finished my page with the Transform sentiment and heat embossed it in white.




Supplies


Strathmore Bristol Smooth Card
Wow! embossing powder: bright white ultra fine
Wow! embossing powder: metallic gold rich pale
Wow! Embossing powder trio: Ancient Jewels Raquel Burillo Perez
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Chipped Sapphire | Kitsch Flamingo

Get Well Soon | Autumn Card

Hello! We have some gorgeous inspiration to share with you today… Stempelfrida has created a fantastic Get Well Soon card featuring our Forest and Bird stencils…


As you can see, I’ve really fallen in love with the set of stencil and mask with the bird from Visible Image. It’s so great that you have both the positive and the negative of the stencil in the set. One can use the set for so many different occasions. Today I have a get well card for you.

 

get well card | bird | forest | stencils | stamping


For my card I used two of the great new stencils/masks from Visible Image. The background is a forest, which I put horizontal. I covered my paper with the stencil and then sprayed two colours of Distress Oxides Spray over it.



When this was well dried, I put the bird mask on it and dabbed the edges with a sponge with distress oxides from the stamp pad. Thereby I always brushed the colour from the middle to the outside. Then I took off the mask and accentuated the contours with Polychromos. In the bird I stamped the writing from the set “Go To Words”.


 

 

Supplies


 

Stencils:


The Forest

Time Flies

Stamps:

Other supplies

Stamp pads: Distress Oxides Ground espresso, Brushed corduroy
Sprays: Distress Oxides iced spruce, spiced marmalade
Polychromos 177, 169






This is such a gorgeous card stempelfrida and we love how you shaded around the mask from the ‘Time Flies’ set. There is a wonderful Autumn feel to it. Thank you ♡

Life Is Beautiful | Hummingbird Stamp

Hello and Happy Saturday to you! We hope you can relax a little. We have some wonderful inspiration coming your way over the weekend, kicking off with a beautiful card by Heather Mitchell featuring our Daisy Daisy stencil with our hummingbird stamp…

Morning everyone!

I am loving this beautiful weather we’ve been having lately, pottering around in my garden and I have a few beautiful blooms of Daisys popping out between some foliage… although I don’t get many Hummingbirds making an appearance unfortunately!


hummingbird daisy card | visible image stamps



For this weeks Visible Image DT inspiration, I’ve used two new stencils:


Daisy Daisy


daisy stencil



and Heavy Rain


rain stencil



and overlaid the beautiful Life is Beautiful Hummingbird


hummingbird stamp | life is beautiful sentiment



So here’s how I did it…



I began by trimming some watercolour card to 7.5″ square and laying the Daisy Daisy stencil in the middle.  I’ve given it a good spritz using the new gorgeous Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Spray and then carefully removed the stencil before drying.

As I wanted to stencil over the flower, I used the stencil again to make a mask and secured it in place with some low-tack masking tape.  I’ve then used the Heavy Rain stencil to add the fabulous lines across and up/down using the oxide ink pads shown.



To give the Daisy some definition, I’ve used my Derwent Inktense pencils on the petals, some I’ve used a water brush on and some I’ve left and when this layer was dry, I added a few swishes of white Posca pen.



The Hummingbird was added using a stamping platform as I wanted a good coverage and knew I may have to re-ink it two or three times. I’ve used Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord Oxide ink pads for this, dabbing the ink pads over the stamp, stamping it on the background and then  changing colour.



The sentiment is also from the Life is Beautiful set and has been stamped using Versafine Clair Rain Forest and added to the card using foam tape.



To complete the make, I’ve matted it onto a navy card and then onto an 8×8″ card blank.




I am loving the new stencils and stamps… what’s your favourite?  Ripped Fishnet is very popular stencil and I love it too… but I also love Words of Support.  Great for journal makes and you may have seen my journal page I recently posted in the Facebook group using that alongside the new Bad Day stamp set.


If you’ve bought any of the new releases (or anything Visible Image to be honest!) keep an eye on instagram and the #visibleimage as there is sooooo much amazing stuff being posted daily… and of course, the group on Facebook has fabulous cards and makes uploaded too!


Enjoy the weather while it’s lovely and sunny (I hope it is wherever you are!) and I’ll catch up again soon xx





This is such a gorgeous card! We love the effect of the hummingbird stamped over the daisy, such wonderful chalky texture too! Thank you Heather ♡

Transform | Mermaid Stamp | Fishnet Stencil

Good Evening! We are sneaking in with another project tonight… Ericka Strange has teamed up our awesome NEW ‘Ripped Fishnet’ stencil with our ‘Mythical Mermaid’ stamp to create a stunning card…



Today I’m showcasing the NEW Ripped Fishnet stencil with Distress Oxide inks


mermaid stamp | fishnet stencil | torn | ripped | underwater theme card


I used Bristol Smooth paper and post it tape to mask off a section of my card. I then took Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers and blended the two colours together. I then used the Fishnet stencil and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide and blended it on top of the two colors.



I didn’t want the background of the mermaid to be white, so I first blended Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio.


I stamped the image with Versafine ink and only heat embossed the portion on the mermaid I wanted to sparkle with Cloud 9 embossing powder.


wow embossing powder | cloud 9 | mermaid stamp


I took a water brush and paper towel and removed the ink on a portion I wanted to be lighter. I then added some Zig Real Color Brushmarkers for added depth to the image and cut her out to use on my card.

I applied foam tape to the back and adhered her to the card base. I added the sentiment from the Wings of Change set to finish off my card.
