Love Yourself

Hello! Yes we are back with another inspirational project featuring our new stamps!

Veerle Moreels has a fabulous video tutorial for you, showing how she created this stunning tag…





What’s in a fingerprint?  When you look at it…there’s nothing much to see. It are just some lines and you leave them behind because you have dirt on your fingers.

But when you take a bit more time to not just look but also think… there is more behind those lines. You see, they are unique for each and every one of us. They are you and that is a strong message when you put it down onto paper. Everyone can copy your signature, everyone can try to look like you inside and out. But no one can put your fingerprint onto paper. And you yourself… can’t try to change that fingerprint. Well you could always cut new lines into them or burn them off… but I don’t feel like doing that on purpose ^.^  And I don’t feel like changing those lines…



Enjoy the video!

Love Yourself – Visible Image Stamps

Good Evening! Hope you have had a great weekend.

Kim Johnny is here with some more fantastic mail art created (of course) with some of our awesome stamps!

Here’s Kim…


Hello!

Today I want to share a postcard for my weekly Visible Image creative make.



2015-09-13 Visible Image stamps - Inky Flower stamp - Love Yourself - Kim Johnny


The postcard is 4 inches by 6 inches and cut from Canson Mixed Media paper.  I picked my go to soothing colors of Distress Ink, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon. I added the happy bubbles with an ARTplorations stencil and DecoArt modeling paste.

The word art sentiment Love Yourself is part of the No Regrets set. I heat embossed all the stamps in white EP, Ranger Superfine

I think Flower INKognito is my most favorite Visible Image stamp…it is so fun to use in so many ways. I hope someday there would be a smaller version and some cousins for this beauty 🙂

I adore the stem is a separate piece from the flower. The stem works great for any grungy touch needed 🙂 It is a fantastic set.

Mixed Media Postcard – Visible Image stamps

Hello 🙂 We are back with more awesome inspiration for you this evening.

Kim J has been getting inky and the results are fantastic…


Hello!

Today is my day to share some Visible Image fun 🙂

I have a mixed media postcard today. I am having so much fun with mail art! Hope you like it!

This is  the front side of the card. I started with some plain white mixed media paper. I cut a bunch of pieces to 4 inches by 6 inches.

Then I made puddles of Americana Multi Surface Satin paints on my craft mat, spritzed with water and smooshed the paper into the paints. Lots of painty play. The nicest thing, once the paint is dry, it is very easy to stamp onto the background.

The front side uses the awesome Vision INKognito and sentiment Love Yourself from the No Regrets set. Both are heat embossed with Distress Ink and Ranger Superfine powder.

I dry embossed the chicken wire pattern on the side of the front of the card. Then layered some clear embossing powder and Jet Black Archival ink. This makes is so wonderful to feel and added some POP and shine 🙂

This is the backside of the postcard. For the text and address divider I used the stem from Flower INKognito.  The amazing splats are found in the Ink Splats set. All are stamped with Distress Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Super fine, black powder.

 


2015-07-28 Visible Image stamps - Mixed Media Postcard 4 - Kim J


I added some fine paintbrush spatters with Black DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic paint. More spatters the better in my mind anyways!

I glued the front and back together with Americana Decou-page Paper collage medium. It dries quickly and non-tacky.

Once done I inked all the edges and my fingers with Jet Black Archival ink.



So are you ready to play and get inky??

LOVE Yourself – Visible Image stamps

Hello There 🙂 Thank you so much for visiting our blog today!

We are catching up on the latest inspiration from our amazing team. Here’s Amber with a gorgeous new card…

Hello!
Today I have another fun Visible Image card to share.  I started by stamping my background with versamark.  I stamped the sentiment in black, and stamped the heart in versamark on a separate piece of cardstock, and cut it out.  I added three little pearls and adhered my card front to a black card base.

Colourful Inky Inspiration with Visible Image stamps

Hi! We’re back with our Fabulous Friday post from Pauline…

Hi again,
 
Today I’m sharing a couple of 6″ x 6″ cards I’ve made using some fantastic Visible Image stamps.
 
My first card uses…..

Visible Image stamps - Butterfly INKognito - Inky Butterfly - Pauline Butcher


I created the background using Distress Inks in 3 colours, and then used a stencil over the top and spritzed with water, to give the sun ray effect. I stamped the butterfly and sentiment with versamark and heat embossed with black powder. I then added 3 colours of Stickles to the butterfly to give the sparkle.
 



The stamps used on the second card are…..
Woman INKognitoRipped Fishnet and ‘Love Yourself’ from the No Regrets Set.
 
 Visible Image stamps - Woman INKognito - Ripped Fishnet - Love Yourself - Pauline Butcher

The background for this card was created with Brusho’s and water, left to dry
, then stamped the Woman in Versamark and heat embossed using Black Embossing powder, I masked her off and stamped the Fishnet with Versamark, and heat embossed that using Pink Embossing powder. I then went over the Woman with a Black Viva Perlen Pen, to make it very dimensional, I also added some Stardust Stickles, and some Pink Stickles for sparkle of course. I coloured a small piece of card with Distress inks, spritzed with water, then stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with Black embossing powder.
 


I am now going to spread a little ‘Visible Image’ love..
I never tire of using these fabulous stamps, apart from the superb quality, these thick polymer stamps are made in house, hand poured and hand cut by Mark, the designer himself, so they are very very unique in every way. Helen does all the packaging, administration, and networking, together they make an Awesome Team. So if you’ve not tried the stamps yet, have a go and see what you think.


A new Visible Image ‘Show and Tell’ challenge has started, so get stamping, and produce some work to enter it, details HERE.
 
Check out the Visible Image Facebook group too for news of goings on, HERE.
 
Big hugs, Pauline xxxxx 



Two absolutely stunning cards from Pauline! Isn’t that background incredible and so perfect for our inky butterfly! And the second card is just so funky! LOVE that pink <3 Woman INKognito looks superb!

You can get your hands on these gorgeous stamps HERE. Why not treat yourself?!

If you are coming to Ally Pally next weekend you will be able to see these gorgeous cards displayed on our stand, along with so many more from our amazing team… they always make our stand look totally awesome!

Have a fabulous Friday, and a brilliant weekend. Hope you have something good planned! We are off to see Olly Murs on Saturday night and then we have a family get together on Sunday.. So we will get a few hours off!!! 😉

Bye for now. Come back tomorrow to see new inspiration from Amber.
