Don’t Let Someone Dim Your Light

Good Evening! We have a super shiny card from Becca here on the blog this evening…

Hello Friendly Friends!

Let’s talk about glitter. Basically, it’s my favorite thing in the world, and my least favorite thing all in one. There is nothing that makes a card sing more than some open sprinkles of shimmer… but it gets EVERYWHERE.

I am fairly certain my vacuum cleaner is the sparkliest and fanciest sucking machine around.

I started my design with some black cardstock and nice layer of Fossilized Amber Distress Oxides. I spritzed it with a little bit o’ water to create some dimension.

Next, I used some gold texture paste through the Strobes stencil and then pressed some loose glitter into it.

I used my heat tool gun to make the texture paste dry. I also love the way it makes the paste crack and bubble.

I stamped and embossed a lightbulb from the Shining Bright stamp set on a piece of heavyweight vellum.

I love how inspirational this set is!

I cut out the lightbulb and applied a thin layer of glue to the back, then busted out the glitter for real, pressing it into the glue.

I put all the pieces together, along with a sentiment from the same Shining Bright stamp set.

This card really shines in the sunlight! I can’t wait to give it to someone!

Thanks for popping by!

LOVE this card.. OMG just look at that glitter! And the golden texture!!!

Thanks Becca! ♡

Be inspired…

Hello! Sorry our blog has been neglected lately! Between very high order volumes, exciting new releases (coming soon!),  and searching for the perfect person to join the team here at Visible Image, there just haven’t been enough hours in the day lately.

So today we have a post packed with stunning inspiration, featuring some of the latest Design Team cards and projects…

Gorgeous notebook decorated by Veerle Moreels!

Veerle has used a delicate purple to add a splash of colour to the flowers. This would make such a beautiful gift.

Stamps Used:

Incredible card by Jane Tyrrell!

Jane made an Infusions background, and embossed the fantastic time swirl stamp and birds in gold wow powder. The falling man and woman were embossed in black then fussy cut out. Jane created her clock hands using a die cut, and attached the gorgeous stamped sentiment. The man was adhered to the clock hand as if he’s grabbing it, trying to turn back time to find his love sooner!

Stamps used:

Great bookmarks by Elina Stromberg!

Elina cut two panels from white cardstock, and inked them with bright Distress Ink colours. Before stamping the jazz and trumpet player images and quote on the panels, she sprinkled plain water on the inked surface to create fun splash textures. Love the added touches to the bottoms, giving the effect of a piano!

Stamps Used:

Awesome card by Corrie Herriman!

Corrie sprinkled Brusho’s onto white card stock and rubbed them in using her finger. She used the ‘stand out’ stamp from the set with water to stamp onto the card. This is like magic!!! Corrie then slightly misted the card with a little water.

Corrie then stamped the legs on the card together with the quote. On a separate piece of card she stamped the shoes again, this time with green ink, and when this had dried added some shading with a coloured pencil. The shoes were cut out and adhered on top of the others. A few white accents finished it off.

Stamps Used:

Gorgeous card by Dot Leathbridge.

Dot has been playing with Distress Oxides to create her fabulous background. The jelly fish and bubbles were stamped first, then masked off. This fantastic stamp set comes with extra bubbles so Dot has added them to create a whirlpool of air bubbles as the jelly fish swims along.

Then the card was smooched through Distress Inks, dried, stenciled, stamped again and finished with the removal of the masking.  Dot really wanted a water-line at the top so that the sentiment could be added ‘out of the water’, but it just didn’t happen!  So that is why there is a ripped section – it’s a compromise.  The words are white embossed with a little black fine-liner added around the letters for shadowing.

Stamps Used:

Fantastic tag by Teresa Morgan!

Teresa sprayed some Dylusions spray inks to create her background, and set aside to dry. The singer is stamped onto some white card and fussy cut leaving a narrow white border all around. Teresa stamped and embossed the word ‘sing’ onto white card, cut it out and matted onto black card, Once the background was dry she stamped the diamonds using Distress Ink and added extra detail with a black fineliner. Teresa also did some scalloped doodles around the edge of the tag, stamped the sentiment across the bottom, then drew a straight line with a fineliner and ‘stood’ the singer on it.

Stamps Used:

Super sparkly card by Pauline Butcher!

The background was created with Distress Oxide Inks, and stamps from the De-stressed backgrounds set. For the jumping girl, Pauline used Versamark with two different types of Embossing powder: a sparkly red and a fluorescent pink! These were sprinkled on randomly, and then heated. Pauline also used red Stickles for added sparkle, and a white pigment pen to make her pop! The sentiment was stamped onto white card, and heat embossed with black powder, the words were then fussy cut and some pink ink added around the edges.

Stamps Used:

Beautiful card by Nicky Gilburt!

Nicky has chopped up our ‘Life Can Be Tough’ sentiment stamp to create new sentiments to repeat stamp over her background, and to break up the words for this card which features our ‘Face it’ stamps as the focal image.

Nicky has also used some of our ‘Visometry’ stamps and the fabulous crackle stamp from ‘Create it’ in the background too,  just to add a little depth. It’s great fun creating new phrases and quotes by cutting up or masking your stamps!

Live in the NOW

Hello! We have another incredible project to share with you here on the blog today, created with our BRAND NEW stamps which you are loving… thank you!

Pauline has combined all three new stamp sets to create this awesome card…

Hi there,

Today I’m sharing a card made with some of the awesome new Visible Image stamp designs, which are now officially released!

I used Oxides on the background, and raised the people and birds to give dimension to the card.

Some close ups…

The stamps I used on this card were:

Ahead of our Time

The sentiments are from:
Somewhere in Time

I also used the Alphabetical stamps on the background:

Thanks for visiting,
hugs, Pauline xxxx

Amazing dimension and just so cool! Thank you so much Pauline ♡
You will find more of Pauline’s fabulous cards and projects over on her blog.

There are many TIME themed stamps around but we hope you’ll agree we have put a different twist on ours, and they really will inspire your creativity!!! That time spiral… ♡ And the dimension on that open door is awesome! Endless creative possibilities for sure…

The alphabet is a ‘must have’…with doubles of the lower case letters it makes personalising your projects so easy! The font is brilliant as are the scribbled frames!

As all our initial stock of ‘Ahead of our Time’ and ‘Somewhere in Time’ sold out in record time, so there’s a little wait for more stock to arrive… but it won’t be too long now.
