Vibrant Card | Flower + Dragonfly Stamps

Hi! Happy Sunday to you! We hope you are enjoying some time out this weekend. Ericka is here on the blog today with an amazing vibrant card featuring our big grungy flower stamps with our gorgeous dragonfly stamp…


Hello! Summer has started here and today I have a bright summery project using the Visible Image latest release: Dragonfly Reflection, Where Flowers Bloom, and Butterfly Effect.


Vibrant Card | Flower + Dragonfly Stamps | Clear | Rubber


For my project, I started with a gel print background I made using Dylusions Shimmer Paints. These paints are awesome and the shine and bright colors are perfect for summer. It is however, a little difficult to get a good photo with all the shimmer.



After I pulled the print of my gel press, I stamped the Dragonfly and Blooms in Versfine ink and clear embossed them. I also stamped these images on some other gel press prints I had printed out and cut them out so I could add them to my project.



I also added elements from both of these sets in white ink and clear embossed the page.



I attached the blooms and dragonfly with foam tape to my project. I also stamped and embossed the dragonfly wings with WOW! Embossing Powder in Carnival.



I then stamped the sentiments from the Where the Flowers Bloom set in Versafine ink and clear embossed it as well.



To finish my card I added the small butterfly from the Butterfly Effect stamp set.



I added my project to an 8×8 black cardstock to give it a framed look.

Vibrant Card Flower Dragonfly Stamps 

Butterfly Effect | Circle Gelli Print

Hello and Happy Friday to you! We are very excited as it is release day for our NEW stamps! Woo! We are so pleased that they are already loved by so many. We have lots of amazing samples to share with you still, and are kicking off release day with a stunning piece of wall art by Lynda, featuring our gorgeous BUTTERFLY EFFECT stamps on a fabulous circle gelli print…


I have had such a lovely time playing with the brand new Summer release from Visible Image this month. They are such fantastic stamps, and a really great size for home decor pieces, so I decided to make some wall art using the Butterfly Effect set and my round Gelli plate for this weeks design team inspiration.

I am not overly well practiced in using the gel plate I must admit  [it is definitely on my ‘must use more’ list!]  so I was unsure how my print would turn out, but that is part of the fun of creating papers with it so I just had to make myself relax and go for it!



My first layer was created by applying paint through the ‘Butterfly Ink’ stencil.



I then took ‘Ripped Fishnet’ stencil and applied paint through that, framing the butterfly.



Once dry, I applied another layer of paint through the ‘Mesh It Up’ stencil.



Again, once dry I added another layer, this time with the ‘Time Tunnel’ stencil.



Then came the scary part- pulling the print [after adding a thin layer of fluid acrylic].


I was SO relieved that the finished print turned out well!



As you can see, the ‘Butterfly Effect’ large stamp fits the stencil perfectly.



I stamped the large and smaller butterflies in Stazon ink on an alcohol ink background and fussy cut once dry.



I wanted to stamp and emboss the background stamps inside the circle, so drew round my Gelli plate onto copy paper and cut to create a mask. I embossed in white to help make the image pop.



I inked a drop shadow around the central image to help add dimension, and mounted it with glue gel. I stuck the smaller butterflies around the edge of the circle, and added the sentiment before mounting onto black card and framing.

Supplies


big butterfly stamp | grunge circles | bubbles | effect | change | clear | rubber



large inky butterfly stencil | ink trails



ripped fishnet stencil | torn | stocking | net



torn mesh stencil



time tunnel stencil | spiral





This is stunning! The gelli print worked out wonderfully, lots of fabulous texture and the white embossing looks fantastic against it. The butterflies look beautiful and this art work definitely needed to be framed! Thank you Lynda ♡

Colour Outside The Lines

Hello! We have Stempelfrida here on the blog today with a fabulous vibrant card to brighten the day!



‘Creative people colour outside the lines’ …this is the motto of my card today. The saying is from the set “Brighten the World” from Visible Image. I also used the “Mindful Moments” stamp set with the great meditation stamps, and as an eye catcher I used the pattern from the “Ink Swirls” stencil.



First, I stamped the meditating person on masking paper and cut it out. For this I used non-permanent adhesive labels. This tip I once got in a craft group and that works really great. I bought the labels in A4 and so you can cut quite great masks that adhere well enough to colour, but are also to be removed again without residue. Compared to other options they this is also a rather cheap one.




I stuck the mask to my square background.


Then I applied acrylic paints to my round Gelli Plate and put the stencil with the swirls over it. The I made the print on the white cardstock. You can see the result in the photo. I then left the mask still on the print and first made a border with yellow paint around the person and then outside the yellow shadow a line in pink. Then I pulled off the mask.


I also coloured my text outside the lines with acrylic paints after stamping and then trimmed it to my liking. I attached it to my print with spacer pads, drew black lines on the edges and added liquid half pearls.





Supplies




Stamp pads: Ink on 3
Staedtler Lumocolor M
Dylusions Acrylic Paint: cherry pie, pure sunshine, lemon zest, bubblegum pink
Enamel Accents Ranger black

Own Kind of Beautiful

Hi there! We are back with some gorgeous inspiration from Heather today…


Hello, Hello Everyone…

I’m back again sharing not just one but three makes I made for the Visible Image Design Team!

I had a Gelli plate for my birthday last year but I’ve not really spent much time playing with it. After seeing some gorgeous makes on Facebook, I felt inspired to dig it out and see what I could come up with.  Have you ever Gelli-plated?!  Just gather your acrylics in your chosen colours and a multitude of mark making tools.  In the past I’ve used bubble wrap, corrugated cardboard and anything I can get my hands on but for this make I used elements of the following stamp sets:


Own Kind of Beautiful




Ink Splats




Live in the Moment




Elemental




Scripted Streets




Mesh-ellaneous




The first ‘pull’ has the majority of the colour and images



The 2nd print, or ghost print, is fainter and has much more white space


Once the prints have dried, you can select areas to use for making your cards.  The first print, I cut an area 8×8″ and matted it onto black card stock.



After heat embossing the three butterfly silhouettes in black, I added a hint of sparkle using Ink Splats to add areas of silver and to highlight the main sentiment, which I embossed over the coffee stain stamp.



To add extra dimension to the project, I heat embossed the butterfly detail in copper onto Vellum, which is such a lovey, soft paper to use.  Once fussy cut, I adhered them to their silhouette with their wings slightly aloft.


I love the contrast between the background and the softness of the Butterflies


I almost prefer the ‘ghost’ print as I’m not good at putting white space into my makes.


Fabulous textures on the ‘ghost’ print



I love the delicate wings on the dragon fly from the Live in the Moment set and his wings look incredible over the background splatter from Somewhere in Time.




The second card also used the background splatter from Somewhere in Time,
but this time has the fabulous eye from Where Dreams Take You.


The silver embossed circles are from the Live in the Moment stamp set



I’m rather chuffed with these makes and I definitely want to explore what my Gelli Plate can do as the textures and layers you can create are very much my style.  Why not hop on over to the Blog homepage to see what everyone on the DT has been making lately!


That’s all from me… have a great week and I’ll see you soon.
