Butterfly Stamp Monochromatic Card

 

Embossed Dragonfly Stamp | Coloured Bubbles

Hi there! We hope you are having a nice weekend so far. Sharon is here on the blog today with an absolutely stunning card created with our DRAGONFLY REFLECTION stamp set embossed in glitter, and some fabulous coloured bubbles.

Embossed Dragonfly Stamp | Coloured Bubbles



Hi! For a long while now I’ve admired the beautiful cards made by Rahmat where she draws bubbles and colours them with her colouring pencils. So when the amazing Dragonfly Reflection stamp set from Visible Image arrived I knew I wanted to have a try at colouring some bubbles, using the round stamp with the grid as a base.  I need more practice, but for a first attempt I think it doesn’t look too bad.


Here’s how I made it


Use a stamp positioner for these first steps creating the bubbles.

Stamp the circle in antique linen and leave the stamp in the stamp positioner.



Colour the circle with coloured pencils.



Return the card to the stamp positioner and re-stamp the circle with versamark clear ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.


Repeat this process twice more to get 2 more bubbles.



Coloured Bubble stamp


Stamp the dragonfly onto the card panel and emboss with a lilac glittery embossing glitter, then roughly colour the wings with the same colours you used for the bubbles.


grunge dragonfly stamp


Stamp the sentiment onto the panel, blend some light blue ink around the corners and add a little doodling to the edges. Back the panel onto black card.


Edge the card blank with the same coloured pencils and set this aside.



Heat emboss the dragonfly onto heat embossable acetate using a sparkly light blue embossing glitter.


Cut the dragonfly out.


Heat emboss the additional wings with a clear multi sparkle and cut these out leaving a little tab on the inner part of the wings.


Embossed Dragonfly Stamp


Place the acetate dragonfly on top of the image on the panel, secure it with low tack tape, then cut two slots either side of the dragonfly’s body for the wings to slot into (cutting the slots through only the acetate dragonfly, the embossed image on the cream card and through the black mat too).


Slot the extra wings through the slots on the acetate dragonfly, then feed them through the slots on the cream panel and secure with tape on the reverse.


layered dragonfly wings | stamp | clear | rubber


Add the panel to the card blank and you are done!


Embossed Dragonfly Stamp | Coloured Bubbles | handmade card



Here is an alternative version of this card using black card as a base.





Supplies


Embossed Dragonfly Stamp | Coloured Bubbles | handmade card



Cream card, Black Card, Distress Inks (antique linen, tumbled glass) Versamark clear ink, Polychromos pencils (I used 101 white, 109 Dark Chrome Yellow, 110 Phthalo Blue, 124 Rose Carmine, 131 Medium Flesh, 134 Crimson, 140 Light Ultramarine, 141 Delft Blue, 154 Light Cobalt Turquoise, 168 Earth Green Yellowish, 171 Light Green, 177 Walnut Brown), WOW! Embossing Glitters (royal crush, coastal, clear multi sparkle), WOW! embossing powder (opaque bright white).

Fearless Tiger Stamp | Handmade Card

Hi there! We hope you are having a nice weekend. Ali is here on the blog today with an amazing handmade card featuring our FEARLESS TIGER stamp with our gorgeous FIBRES stencil.


I’ve been playing with the fab new tiger stamp from Visible Image called ‘Fearless Tiger’. I had a ball making this card – shiny metallic polish, matt black gesso and the stunning, stunning tiger stamp.


fearless tiger stamp | handmade card


Instructions


Cut a piece of heavy stock white card 6″ square, load up a stamping platform with the tiger stamp and stamp the image onto the centre of the card with black versafine ink just once to show where the tiger will be going.




Leave the tiger stamp in place on your stamp platform  for later.



Lightly spritz your stamped card with water and then apply some of the red and orange Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polishes up to the edge of the tiger and over the rest of the card.



Dry your card with your heat gun then wipe it over with an anti static bag.


Put your card back in your stamp platform and re-stamp the tiger image with black versafine until you have a nice solid black image.


Then heat emboss with clear embossing powder.



Your card will look a bit like this – probably better than mine if you didn’t paint over his ears 😀


Pour a little black gesso into a scrap foil container



Tape the Visible Image Fibre stencil over the your card and stencil a little black gesso  over the metallic background, allowing the gesso to dry before moving the stencil to a new part of the card as the stencil is slightly smaller than your card.



When the gesso has dried, paint in the tigers face using an orange watercolour pen and a damp brush.


Paint the eyes with green and yellow and re-paint in any white bits using white acrylic paint or a bleed proof white ink.



Pat your anti static bag over the tigers face then return your card to the stamp press.


Use a gold or any other pigment ink to ink up the tiger’s mane, avoiding his face then heat emboss with gold embossing powder.



Use a sponge to apply a little glycerine or versamark ink around the edges of the card and  then heat emboss with gold embossing powder.



Use the remaining ink left on the gilding polish applicators to colour the edges of  a square of white card just over 6 1/2″ square and also scrap of white card for the sentiment.


Attach your tiger card onto black card with a 1/16″ border and then onto your coloured card with approx 1/4″ border.


Then attach onto another black card layer with approx 1/4″ border and finally onto a white 8″ x 8″ white card blank.



Using your stamp platform again, stamp the Fearless sentiment onto the coloured scrap with back versafine ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder, repeat inking and heat embossing a second time so it is really glossy.


Cut out the sentiment, sponge a little black gesso around the edges then attach it to a piece of black card, leaving a border of approx 1/8″ and fix to the bottom right of your card with double sided foam tape.


Finally apply glossy accents to the tiger’s eyes and glue a few sequins on the background.



Here is my finished card

Tiger Stamp | Face Your Fears

Hello! We are resuming our NEW STAMPS inspiration here on the blog… Ericka has created an amazing card with our FEARLESS TIGER stamp and ‘face your fears’ sentiment, beautifully embossed on a vibrant alcohol inks background.



Today I’m playing with the awesome new Visible Image Fearless Tiger. This set is available for pre-order and trust me you’ll want to get your hands on this beautiful tiger.


tiger stamp | card making | embossing | handmade card | visible image


I love the great detail of this stamp and decided to pair it with an alcohol ink background. I started with Yupo paper and then used a blending tool with a felt applicator. I started with two yellows and two oranges in Dandelion, Sunshine Yellow, Ember, and Valencia. I then added some Gilded Alloy to the applicator and moved it around the Yupo for some gold shine.



I then stamped the Fearless Tiger in my MISTI in Versafine black ink and heat embossed it with Black Glint for more depth.



I took the Alcohol Blending Pen and add some Clover alcohol ink to the Tiger’s eyes.

To complete my card, I added the sentiment and heat embossed it in gold.




Supplies

Ranger Tim Holtz =alcohol ink Yupo Paper: White
Ranger Tim Holtz alcohol inks: Orange Yellow Spectrum
Ranger Tim Holtz Alloy: Gilded
Ranger Tim Holtz Alcohol Blending Solution
Ranger Tim Holtz Alcohol Blending Pen
Wow! Embossing powder: black glint

Sunshine Stamp | Colourful Card

Hello! We hope you are doing ok. Our Design Team are back from their break and are really excited to start inspiring you this year. We are kicking off with a gorgeously colourful card from Ericka featuring the inspiring sentiment and sunshine stamp from our RISE AND SHINE set…



Happy Monday! Today I’m playing with some Visible Image and making a bright card during our cold winter weather.



I love this Rise and Shine set along with the gorgeous sun. I started out with a background I had made previously using paint and applying it to the paper with a brayer. I stamped the sun with and heat embossed it with WOW! Sunflower yellow. I then used Color Bursts to give my sun a varied color.




I then used a stamp from Phoenix Rising to make some clouds and embossed them in WOW! Midnight to give them a blue sparkle.




I also added some of the circles in the Rise and Shine set around my background for additional texture.




I then fussy cut my sun out and attached it with foam tape. I added the sentiment in Versafine ink and clear embossed it. I also added a little white gel pen around the shining to help pop it up.


 

Supplies

Forest Stencil | Dream Sentiment

Hi there! We hope you had a lovely weekend. We have Ali Carubia here on the blog today with a tutorial showing how she created an amazing card with our Forest Stencil, DREAM sentiment and our beautiful intuition quote…


I thought I would show you how I created my Forest Dreams card using the beautiful Forest Stencil from Visible Image. It took a little while to make but I think it was well worth it 😎.


forest stencil | dream sentiment | intuition quote


You will find a list of supplies used at the end of this post.


And here we go…


First cut a piece of white card 6″ x 6″. Use the blending tool to apply Ocean Blue and Midnight inks over the card so that you have lighter and darker patches. Then add a little Plum Pudding over parts of the card and all around the edges. You could use any dye based ink instead eg Distress inks to get the same effect.


Use your paint brush to flick some water droplets over the card, wait a few seconds and dab off with kitchen paper. Take a round pot about 2″ diameter and place it in the top right hand corner. Wet your round paint brush and draw around the pot. Remove the pot and dab off the water with kitchen towel.


Use your flat brush to gently apply water to the circle in a circular motion and dab off with kitchen towel to faux bleach a moon shape. Dry the card with a heat gun. Use the Sparkle pen to fill in the moon and then tap your pen over the card to add some sparkly drops.



Dry your card again and then add Jet Black ink around the edges of the card to create a vignette, then dry it again.


Your card will look something like this..



Wipe over your card with an anti static bag.


Place the forest stencil over your card and tape them together along the top edge.



Flip up the stencil then press your versafine black ink pad over the whole stencil. Your ink pad need to be quite juicy to get a good letter press, but you can re-apply.


Flip the inked up stencil back over your card and pass it through your die cutting machine using the plate combo used for thin metal dies.


Check that the ink has transferred to your card. If it is patchy then re-ink the stencil and pass it through the machine again.


Carefully remove the stencil, cover your inked up card with clear embossing powder, tip off the excess and melt with your heat gun.


Add white highlights to the top and right hand side of the trees and branches where the moonlight would hit them and a little at the ground between the trees.



Trim down the card if necessary at this stage.


Take the ‘Dream’ sentiment stamp from the Imagine, Dream Inspire set, mask off with paper so that only the Dream words are showing and ink up with versafine black. Remove the paper masks and stamp onto a scrap of white card. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

dream sentiment stamp


Stamp and heat emboss the intuition sentiment from the Night Owl set as before. Lightly edge your sentiments using the blue ink that’s left on your blending foam and matt them onto black card with about 1.8″ border.


intuition quote


Matt and layer your forest card onto white card (1/16″ border) and then onto black card (1/4″ border) and then onto a 7″ x 7″ white card blank.


Attach your sentiments using double sided foam tape or 3d glue gel so they are raised up.



Here is my finished card…

Have A Vision | Vibrant Card

Good Afternoon! Ericka Strange is next up on the blog today with a gorgeous card featuring the large version of our stunning inky flower, found in our ‘Total Chaos’ set…



Happy Monday. I hope you are safe and well. Today I’m playing with some Visible Image and WOW! Embossing to make a fun card.


flower stamp | foiling | embossing


I started off by taking a background I had made previously watercoloring stripes. I then used an anti static tool on the background to make sure there were no oils to attract the fine powder.  I stamped the flower and leaves from the ‘Total Chaos’ set onto the paper with WOW! Embossing ink in my MISTI. I then sprinkled some WOW! Bonding Powder and heated it up until it was shiny.


IMG_4524 copy


There are a couple of ways to use the bonding powder, I chose to use my MINC (like a laminator) since I had it out for a  couple of other projects. I ran the background through the MINC with the Dark Blue Fab Foil.


visionside


The result is a beautiful, shiny blue image.


visiondown


I have stamped the sentiment from the ‘2020 Vision’ set and heat embossed it in Metallic Platinum.


inky flower stamp | leaves | embossing | foiling



To finish my card, I added some blue gemstones. 



Supplies


inky flower stamp | mixed media art | scribble | leaf



eye stamp | rubber | clear | collage | mixed media



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day.




What a fabulous card Ericka! Our flower and leaves look stunning with the foil and your striped background is so striking! Thank you

New Leaves Will Always Grow

Hi there! We hope you are staying safe and well and coping with this very different world that we all live in at the moment. We are grateful for sunshine and being able to go for walks here in Wales, and we love to see all the signs of spring in the trees, plants and flowers. Jane Tyrrell is here today with a wonderful card featuring our ‘Tree of Life’ stamps, the sentiment in this set is very apt at this current time…


Hello
it is time for my fortnightly design team post for Visible Image. Spring is in full swing now despite the blip in temperatures over the last few days.


The blooms I have seen on my daily walks  have been stunning and these inspired both the card and the colour palette for my card today.






The stamp set I am working with today is called Tree of Life


tree of life stamp


This is what I got up to.

I used blue and pewter distress ink sprays to create a background



I cut it down to a 5 1/2 ” square and then added my stamping. I used the tree in the set as branches around the edge of my card.



I used every stamp in this lovely set.



I stamped both sizes of the leaves onto inky mop up card and cut them out.



I then stamped the leaves onto my card and paper pieced them with the leaves above. I added glossy accents to all the little circles to make them look like dew drops.



Here is my finished card. The sentiment is also so appropriate for now.

With a couple of close ups







Stay safe and stay creative.


Bye for now,
Jane x



What a fantastic card! We love how you have used the foliage around the edges of your card, and that sky blue is stunning! The dew drops look beautiful too.  Thank you Jane ♡

Sparkle In The Rain Monolith – Visible Image Stamps

Hi there! We are very excited to share this incredible piece of art work from Susanne Rose today…



Visible Image stamps - Sparkle In The Rain, MDF Monolith, Mixed Media Art - Susanne Rose



Hi my dear Visible Image friends!

I’m sharing my first Monolith today! It’s a mdf stand alone Monolith. Perfect for mixed media. I love it. And a bonus is, you can decorate both sides! So you can turn it from time to time! For my front I used black chalkboard paint and covered the whole surface. After this was completely dry I used Fran-tage embossing enamel together with the “Sparkle in the Rain” girl. To get a good coverage I embossed it two times. That means: Immediately after the first layer is melted you add another layer of powder. It will stick to your first impression, because it’s is still hot. You have to be quick, but keep in mind to put away you heat gun, to not blow away the powder. Some on the enamel will stick to the background as well. That’s because it is so hot. But I really like that. So the contrast is not too hard.

I used Gelatos to add color. They are working great on the chalkboard. I add some texture with the Tim Holtz Speckles stencil and structure paste.



I split the sentiment by masking one part with Washi tape. Don’t forget to remove the tape before you stamp. The word “SPARKLE” is embossed with some glitter teal powder.




The flowers are all handmade paperflowers. I used dies from Sizzix and Marianne Design. The blue one is cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I add some wire and gems for more interest.




My back is totally simple. It’s also covered with chalkboard paint. Of course that means you can write on it with chalk!

Thanks for stopping by!  Can’t wait to see all your first Monoliths!
xx Susanne. 



AMAZING work Susanne thank you! Loving all that texture, and the flowers are fabulous! ♡

We will be back tomorrow with the very first Monolith from Kim Johnny! And an awesome card from Kim Bacon… all created with our NEW stamps!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Visible Image stamps - Rock Our - Grungy Silhouette Guitarist - Teresa Morgan


To create the background I stamped the Grunge Check with Versamark Ink and embossed with WOW powders’ Dull Matt Clear embossing powder. I then used Dylusions ink sprays and Distress Inks to add colour to the card, wiping any excess off the embossing powder. Once dry I used Ranger Sticky Embossing powder and silver blue foil to stamp the words across the top and bottom of the card front. Finally I stamped the guitarist and the words in the centre and embossed with black embossing powder.
