Love and Compassion | Mindful Stamps | Stencils

Hello! We are back with more wonderful inspiration for you today. Lynda Hall has combined our NEW ‘Words of Support’ stencil with stamps from our ‘Love is Love’ and ‘Don’t Judge’ sets, which work so well together…


Today’s creation for Visible Image is all about love and uses some incredibly powerful images and words. This card would be perfect for anyone that needed a little support in troubled times.

I started with a piece of mixed media card sprayed with a combination of Dylusions and Distress Oxide spray inks, and I stamped and embossed one of the faces from the new ‘Love is Love’ set at the edge.



On a gelli print scrap in coordinating colours I also embossed the sentiment ‘Love Is’ inside the heart stamp from Don’t Judge.



I added some background stamping for added depth and then applied texture paste through some of the words on the Words of Support stencil. Because the inks are water based, the paste absorbs some of the colour and tints it as it dries- very cool!



To finish I stamped and fussy cut the person from Don’t Judge, outlined the words in black, and added white highlights and some pops of colour to the details on the face profile.

This is such a wonderful card Lynda, and will be so meaningful to so many people. The white embossing looks gorgeous against the vibrant background and we love how the colours come through in the words. Thank you ♡

Love is Love | Mixed Media Face Stamps

Good Evening, we have some more gorgeous new stamps inspiration for you today. Heather Mitchell has inked up our ‘Love is Love’ set and is here to show you what she made…


Evening all,

You can’t have not seen the new Visible Image stamps that are on pre-order now… and aren’t they beauties?!  I absolutely love this Love is Love set… bang on perfect for these volatile times in which we find ourselves.




I’ve barely been able to put this stamp set down since it arrived Friday and my head is whirring away with possibilities and ideas for it.

To begin the card, I’ve added some star washi tape strips to watercolour card and gesso’d over the top to protect the tape.  After overlaying the Square Route stencil, I’ve created an ombre effect using Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean to which I’ve then lightly spritzed water over to add texture.



After using a black permanent fine liner to draw in some scribbly lines in the stencil gaps, I’ve flicked on some black indian ink to break up the blue and add extra interest.

Having already measured where the two face stamps would lay on the card, I used the sentiment for the set, Love is Love, down the centre.



The two profile stamps are just brilliant! The words on them (trust, love, eternity, friendship, loyalty, empathy, kindness etc) are so bang on trend and perfect for all types of cards and journalling and I cannot wait to journal with this set!

I’ve heat embossed the profile stamps using WOW!’s Opaque Bright White embossing powder and then used oxide ink pads (Candied Apple, Picked raspberry, Seedless preserve, Blueprint Sketch, Cracked Pistachio and Mustard Seed) to create the rainbow effect.  Once trimmed, I’ve secured them directly to the card before matting onto black card to finish.



Once again, the new stamps are on pre-order now from the online shop and are due for release on Friday June 26th… just in time for the weekend!
