I used Brushos as usual for my colouring medium and brought everything together with gold embossing powder.

The poinsettia leaves already have a script pattern on them which goes really well with the script stamp from the Revolution set.

Christmas Pocket Letter – Visible Image Stamps

Good Morning! Thank you for paying us a visit today.

We have lots of great projects to share with you today, so let’s get started! Susanne Rose is our German DT member, and we will be sharing her write ups in both languages as we¬†have many wonderful customers over in Germany ūüôā

Here’s¬†Susanne…

It’s my day today to share some inspiration with the super unique¬†Visible Image¬†Stamps. I have recently made a few Pocket Letters, ¬†I don’t trade them because¬†it’s too stressy¬†to¬†organise! I use them to surprise some of my friends from time to time. Maybe I should give Project Life a try, because I love creating pocket pages..¬†It¬†doesn’t always have to be a Pocket Letter.

Heute ist wieder mein Tag f√ľr¬†Visible Image¬†Stamps. Ich hab in letzter Zeit mal wieder einige Pocket Letter gemacht. Und nein, ich tausche nicht. Ganz einfach aus dem Grund, dass mir das Organisatorische etwas viel wird. Ich verwende diese Briefe um hin und wieder jemanden zu √ľberraschen. Ich sollte vielleicht doch mal mit Project Life anfangen, denn es macht mir unheimlich viel Spa√ü solche Pocket Pages zu gestalten. Das muss nicht unbedingt ein Pocket Letter sein.



2015-10-19 Visible Image stamps - Christmas Pocket Letter - Poinsettia - Susanne Rose


I started with a piece of watercolor cardstock that measures 7.5″ (3 x 2.5″) and 10.5″ (3 x 3.5″). I took the lovely snowflake stamp from the White Christmas¬†set and stamped it with Versamark on top of my background. I embossed it with white powder and colored the background with Neocolor II watercolor crayons. The embossing acts a a resist. To add some more interest I used the script and the ornament stamp from the Revolution¬†set and stamped them randomly with black ink. Now it was time to cut it into 9 pieces!

Begonnen habe ich mit einem St√ľck Aquarellpapier der gr√∂√üe 7.5 7.5″ (3 x 2.5″) and 10.5″ (3 x 3.5″). Der h√ľbsche Schneeflockenstempel aus dem “White Christmas” Set wurde mit wei√üem Embossingpulver gepr√§gt. Anschlie√üend verwendete ich die Neocolor II Aquarellkreiden zum kolorieren. F√ľr etwas mehr Textur stempelte ich au√üerdem das Ornament und den Schriftstempel aus dem “Revolution” Set hier und da. Jetzt war es an der Zeit die Seite in 9 K√§rtchen zu teilen.



The poinsettias are colored with Pearlescent watercolors. I used the icicles and winter die from Noor! Design. The christmas tree is a die from Marianne Design.


Der¬†Weihnachtsstern¬†ist mit Pearlescent Wasserfarben koloriert. Die Eiszapfenbord√ľre und der Winter-Schriftzug sind von Noor! Design. Der Weihnachtsbaum ist eine Stanze von Marianne Design.¬†




My focus lies on the “Dreaming of a White Christmas” Sentiment. The snowflake on the right hand side is a Sizzix die.

Der Fokus liegt auf dem Spruch “Dreaming of a¬†White Christmas“. Die Schneeflocke auf der rechten Seite ist von Sizzix.



I love the winter house from Marianne Design. It is so cute on winter projects. The Winter border, the tree and the lantern are also dies from Marianne Design.

Das Winterhaus von Marianne Design finde ich total bezaubernd. Ebenso gut passen die anderen Stanzteile (alle ebenfalls von Marianne Design) dazu.

I hope you like my pocket letter. I wish you a nice day!

Ich hoffe mein Pocket Letter hat Euch gefallen.
