Blooming Lovely

Hello! We hope you have enjoyed Day 1 of our NEW stamps previews!

Jane Tyrrell is here today with details of how she created her amazing card that we previewed on our blog earlier today…

Today is a very special day as I am absolutely delighted to be able to share my first Design Team sample made with 2 of the brand new Visible Image stamp sets which are being previewed all this week!

The new stamps are being launched in the USA at Creativation which Helen and Mark,  aka Mr and Mrs Visible Image, are attending for the very first time in 10 days time. They will be flying the flag for their awesome brand which I have the joy of being able to design for.

The new stamps will be available to pre order from 12th January!  

Over the last month I have secretly been beavering away working on some of the new designs and I have made several projects with them. I will be sharing them all over the coming weeks.

The first stamp sets that I am showcasing are..

Bloom and Grow…  an amazing and totally unique stamp baby set, and Organics… a large A5 set which has so many uses. I can see trees branches, twigs, the sky, the seas, seaweed, frost, ink splats and drips…. the list is endless.


Amazing aren’t they and so original!

These 2 sets work perfectly together and I decided to make my very own bloom and growing flower baby card.

I’ve been so busy that I have not got many process photos on file so here is my step by step in words…
First I took some Kraft card and added some walnut stain and antique linen distress oxides, using the wrinkle free technique. Once dry I stamped the fingerprint in red Versafine Claire ink and then added the love stamp from bloom and grow to make the stalk. I then used Organics to stamp some more foliage using a mixture of Distress oxides and Versafine inks.

I then added lots of lovely frantage to give some sparkle and texture… and make a very “organic” card.
I stamped and embossed the baby and the sentiment and added them to finish off my card.

Here it is..


Just look at the details of the baby…. I love the little flower inside …such a fab finishing design touch by Mark. I highlighted this one in white but in other projects I have also coloured it in… the choices are endless.

Here are a couple of close ups;

Prepare to be wowed by this awesome new release. Mark Alexander has, as always, designed the most original, unique stamps, unlike any others you will see in the stamping market. They are a total joy to design with and so versatile. All you need is your imagination!

I am so proud that my some of my work will be travelling all the way to the USA to be displayed.

I will be back on Thursday sharing another card sample I made using another set from the new release….. I can’t give you a sneak peek but I will give a very, very cryptic clue to my card…… I will digging out a couple of my old paperbacks to photograph too……. tee hee!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Keep snug, it’s turned very chilly here.

Bye for now,
