Shine Bright

Good Evening! We are back with our final post today which comes from Pauline Butcher…

Hi there,
 
Another week has passed and it’s Fabulous Friday once again, so my day to share something I’ve created using some awesome Visible Image Stamps.
 

I had a Workshop planned for last Sunday, but as we had snow, I decided it was better to cancel it, to keep everyone safe.

Three of the Crafters were all together, so I challenged them to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card, which are 2.5″ x 3.5″ ), to use 3 colours plus Black, 2 stencils, and some Visible Image Stamps, and to also add some dimension.

Their creations were fabulous, but I decided to expand the one I made, into four and mount them, so here is the result…

 






The stamps I’ve used are…



and the stencils I have used are…


Top Left:


Strobes



Stars & Stripes (with paste through),



Top Right:


Time Tunnel (with paste through)



and Geometric Maze



Bottom Left: 

Cosmic Skies (with paste through)



and Fibres



and lastly Bottom Right: 

Fibres again


and Distorted Chess (with paste through)


 



I used Distress inks, the images were all stamped onto white card, and heat embossed, and the light bulbs were stamped onto acetate and heat embossed.



 


I hope you’ll have a go at some ATC’s, they are so addictive to make, and fabulous to get you back into stamping, if you’ve lost your mojo for some reason.
 

Thank you for popping in.

Hugs, Pauline xxxxx

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!
Becca



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

Shine Bright

Hello! We hope you have enjoyed seeing all the latest inspiration our amazing team have been creating with our NEW stamps!

This final post is sharing a few of the incredible cards created with our NEW Shining Bright stamp set.



Shining Bright Promo


Just look at the clever designing by Mark… LOVE the rays of light over the word SHINE and the lightbulbs are awesome!


The quote is so inspiring and the words mean so much to us.. especially at the moment!

‘Don’t let someone dim your light simply because it’s shining in their eyes’

(keep moving ahead and let your light shine even brighter!)



These stamps also work brilliantly with another very popular set we released last summer…


Glimmer of Light


Visible Image Glimmer Of Light Moth COL stamp set


Here are some of the stunning cards that have been created with these incredible stamps…

2017-02-25 Visible Image - Shine Bright - Light bulb stamp - Nicky Gilburt

Created by Nicky Gilburt: I found my UTEE and made a quick stencil by stamping
and cutting out the lightbulb on spare card. Then, once I’d coloured it, I coated it with Versamark and got melty!
Stunning effect on the lightbulb! Thank you again Nicky ♡

Glimmer of Light – Visible Image Stamps

Hello! Thanks for visiting!

Pauline is here to inspire you today with an amazing project featuring stamps from our Summer Release and our brilliant MDF Monoliths…

Hi there,
 
I thought it was about time I decorated another Visible Image Monolith, they are such fun to do, and there are endless possibilities.
 
I used one of my fave Visible Image Stamps sets, from the new releases, for this project, it’s stunning and I love it, it’s called……
Glimmer of Lightplus the fabulous Rays of Light, and the Shine Bright setyou see the theme, lol !
And of course don’t forget the fabulous MDF, which come in a pack of 5…… Monoliths.



Visible Image - Glimmer of Light - Pauline Butcher 1

I used Dylusion Paints on the front, a Black base, then combination of colours on top, then stamped the Rays, using white Ink, where I wanted the little light bulbs to hang. I then stamped the little bulbs and the sentiment in Black Versafine Ink, and heat embossed the wonderful Moth, onto card , coloured them in using Distress Inks, and fussy cut them all.
 




I added glossy accents to the bulbs, and Stickles to the Moths.



Visible Image - Glimmer of Light - Pauline Butcher 2

On the other side, again I painted the MDF in Black, added some paste through a stencil, and when it was dry, used Gilding wax to highlight it.


 I stamped the Ray into Acetate, and heat embossed it in Yellow powder, and the large light bulb, again onto acetate, and heat embossed in Black powder. I stamped some more small light bulbs using Black ink, coloured them and then fussy cut, glued them to the MDF, and used Glossy Accents.
 




I wasn’t happy with the large bulb being black, so using a white pen I highlighted the outline. The Moths were stamped with Stazon, onto Shrink Plastic, and I coloured them with crayons, fussy cut them, then heated and watched the magic happen…… 
 


I hope I have given you a bit of inspiration on how to decorate the MDF Monoliths.
 
Check out the Visible Image places below for more inspiration……
 
I am running an Inky Workshop, near Warwick, 
on Sunday 14th August, 10am – 4pm, 
please email me for details,
 
Thanks again for your visit.

Hugs Pauline xxxx
