Thinking of You | Rose Stamp

Hello! We hope you had a lovely weekend, doesn’t Monday come around quickly! We are excited though, as we have lots of gorgeous inspiration coming your way this week and… NEW STAMPS too! Jane is here on the blog today with a beautiful card featuring our Thinking of You stamp with the rose from our FLOWER ART set with our wonderful verse…


Good Afternoon everyone, it’s time for my Visible Image design team post. After 2 weeks of Christmas stamps and stencils inspiration the design team are getting back to sharing some non Christmas makes. This is while we await the delivery of the new stamps and start making our samples. Yes there are 6 new stamp sets coming out later this month and they are AWESOME.


I decided to work with these 2 lovely sets and make a slimline card;


Flower Art


Flower Art | Stamps | Rose | Daffodil | Tulip | Clear | Rubber


and Thinking of You which has such a delightful verse written by Helen.

This is what I got up to.


I sprayed frayed burlap and mermaid lagoon distress oxide sprays onto watercolour card, spritzed some water and dried with my heat gun. Once dry I cut a slimline panel. I then stamped the sentiment as shown. I masked off the verse so that I could stamp it in 2 halves on my background. I then stamped the rose from the Flower Art set with a green inked stalk/leaves and black over the flower head. As long as the stalk and leaves are green you don’t need to be too precise with the colour on the flower as this is being decoupaged.

I added some extra green to the leaves using a zig watercolour pen.



Next I stamped and embossed just the rose flower heads onto inky mop up card and cut them out.



I glued the rose blooms in place, matted up the card and adhered it to a slimline card blank (I just cut my own).




Here it is finished

Beautiful Rose Stamp | CAS Card

Hi! Sharon is here on the blog today with a really beautiful CAS card featuring the rose stamp from our FLOWER ART set with our RIPPLES stencil…


Hello there. Today I have a quick CAS [clean and simple] card for you using some Visible Image stamps and a stencil. I really hoped I’d have time to make a few more cards using the other two flowers in the stamp set… but as usual, time ran away from me.


Beautiful Rose Stamp | CAS Card



Here’s how I made this one:


First swipe some ink onto a glass mat and spritz with a tiny bit of water. Press some acetate into the ink and then place the acetate onto a piece of card to transfer the ink, making sure to leave a large area of gorgeous white space for the sentiment. Dry the ink and then add some more ink to the card using the same technique to add droplets.



Now blend the same colour ink through a stencil over the top of the ink added in the previous step.



Wait for the distress inks to completely dry, then stamp the flower onto the card panel and heat emboss it.

Heat emboss the sentiment too.

Heat emboss the flower once again onto a piece of water colour card.



Take some pens, or water colour paints, and colour the rose and the leaf on the watercolour card, then cut them out.



Layer the panel onto the card blank, then layer the rose and leaf onto the panel. Add a few nuvo drops in white for some texture, and your card is good to go!

Rose Stamp CAS Card

 

Design Team Intro | Ali Carubia

Hi there! Next up is another of our existing designers who is staying on the team…


Ali Carubia


Ali is on our BLOGGING TEAM!


We love Ali’s striking cards and fabulous backgrounds, and how wonderfully she interprets and co-ordinates our stamps, stencils and sentiments!



I started crafting about 20 years ago. My style is varied, my favourites are bright colours and silhouettes. I have an extensive collection of paper, stamps, inks, paints and sparkly things!

For my latest Visible Image inspiration I’ve been playing with two fabulous stencils to make a couple of cards for my friends. These were fun and easy to make.


Quirky rose stamp | ink swirls stencil | kindness + friendship | handmade cards


To make the DL card:


Take a A4 piece of 300gsm white stamping card, cut it down to 210mm x 196mm and scoring at 98mm.

Trim the left over strip to 84mm x 194mm to make the card topper.

Tape the Visible Image ‘Ink Swirls’ stencil over the bottom 2/3’s of your card strip with masking tape. Use a brush or blending foam to apply the weathered wood distress oxide ink through the stencil, add a little black soot distress oxide in places – avoid the straight edge at the top of the stencil.

Wipe the ink off the stencil, flip it over and move it over the top 1/3. Match up the swirls as best you can and ink up as before. Flick a little water over your inked card, leave for a few seconds and then pickup the drops with paper towel.



Wipe over another piece of white stamping card with an anti static bag. Then stamp the rose from Visible Image’s Random Art of Kindness 6 times using black versafine ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.



Fussy cut the roses, I cut slightly outside of the embossed lines.



Colour the roses with a base coat of orange ink and then add the red and pink ink.


Use the remaining orange and pink on your applicators to colour a sentiment from the ‘Words of Support’ stencil onto white card with the orange at the top and the pink at the bottom.

Heat emboss with clear embossing powder as before.

Trim the sentiment and mount it onto a scrap of black card with a border of about 1.5mm (1/16″).



Stamp the flower stem 3 times using black versafine ink as above and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Glue your inked piece onto a larger piece of black card with a border of about 3mm (1/8″).



Glue 3 of the roses flat onto the topper using pva glue. Shape the remaining 3 roses using your fingers and use 3d foam to fix them onto your card.



Use a white gel pen to add highlights to the flower heads, then doodle around the outside of your card with a fine black liner pen.

Colour the circles on the stems with a red pen and then cover these with glossy accents.

Attach your card topper to the white DL card blank you made earlier and attach the sentiment using 3d foam to the bottom right hand corner.


Your finished card will look like this 😎




To make the square card:


The process is the same except you don’t need to move the stencil and only 4 roses are needed. I found this card even quicker to make 😀


The measurements for the 6″x 6″ square card are:
card topper – white stamping card 130mm x 130mm
black card matt – 138mm x 138mm


I used a different sentiment and a couple of adhesive gems on this one…
