Feel The Beat @ Visible Image

It’s Thursday which can only mean one thing! Teresa Morgan is here to inspire you…

Hello and welcome back to my Thrilling Thursday inspiration post for Visible Image Stamps. We are all excited about the upcoming new releases scheduled for February and can’t wait to share them with you all. Meanwhile, here is another bright and funky card featuring one of last year’s brilliant music stamps…

Visible Image stamps - Feel The Beat - Drummer Stamp - Teresa Morgan


The simple yet effective background is created with Distress Inks, simply blended against the edge of a scrap of card randomly over the cardstock. It creates an illusion of stage spotlights and adds movement to the design. The edge design was created by stamping and embossing part of the swirl stamp (Universal set) in different colours of fluorescent WOW powders. I stamped the drummer and the circles with black Archival ink, then finished with the words (embossed in white on black card) popped up on 3d foam.

Thanks for stopping by again, I hope you are inspired to make a purchase or try one of today’s techniques.

Hey! 🙂 We’re back with even more inspiration today!!! Woweee we are spoiling you 😉

Pauline Butcher is certain to brighten your day with her latest creation! Over to Pauline…

Hi there,
I’m doing my Visible Image Stamps blog early this week, as I have swapped with my teamie Sue.
This is a card I created at the beginning of the month, using some fantastic Visible Image Stamps, for my Wonderful partner Rob’s Birthday. He is a drummer, so these new music themed stamps are genius for him.
 Visible Image stamps - Drummer - Feel The Beat - Music stamps - Pauline Butcher

The Visible Image stamps I used were…….
I started off with a 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Centura Pearl card, (I always use the mat side of the card for blending Distress Inks, it’s nice and smooth).  I blended Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers onto it, making sure that there was Mustard Seed in the middle. I then used the star stamp from the Universal set and stamped 4 stars using the same colours tone on tone. I Stamped the drummer and the sentiment using Versamark, and heat embossed with black powder. Using the feather stamp from ‘Angels are near’, I stamped just the inky tip around the edges using the same colours, tone on tone again, and then another layer at the edge using Chipped Sapphire.

This would have made a great 6″x 6″ card, but I decided to go bigger, lol.  So, on the mat side of a piece of Centura Pearl 7 1/4″ x 7 1/4″, and using the music stamp, I stamped from the middle out all the way around the card, again using the same 3 colours to co-ordinate with the topper. I then stamped the tip of the feather, again using Chipped Sapphire, around the edges. To finish off, I added Black Stickles to the sentiment, parts of the Drummer, and the edges of the larger background, I  then mat and layered onto an 8″ x 8″ card blank.

Such an amazing card! Love how Pauline has stamped the Music wave around the edges and cool use of the feather too! Striking colours and doesn’t the ‘Universal Set’ make an awesome background!

The Background is Aqua Tints, with bleach flicked over it, to look like strobe lighting, after glittering bits of the band members, I coated them with Glossy Accents to make them pop, it does look better in the flesh, photo’s never really do a piece justice.
