Butterfly Stencil | Birthday Sentiment Stamp

Hello! We have stempelfrida here on the blog today with a beautiful card created with our Butterfly stencil and the ‘It’s Your Birthday’ stamp from our new LOST FOR WORDS set…

Ohhh, Visible Image has a brand new release this month. And what shall I say? The stamps are awesome! I’m going to start today with a set that truly isn’t the first to catch your eye, because some sets in the release are just “bang”. But I fell in love with this one right away. These are texts, which use quite simple words for purposes that you can use frequently. I’m always looking for texts like this, actually. And now finally I have this wonderful set that shows them in such great fonts. You can view the whole set in the supplies list further down.

Today I present you the birthday greeting on the butterfly, which I made with a stencil and a shaving foam technique.

So let’s first get to the technique with the shaving cream. In a shallow bowl I sprayed shaving foam (the cheapest I could find), flattened the mass a bit and dripped a few drops of Refiller into the foam. I then mixed these with a wood pin. This looks so yummy!!!

I have applied this mass with cardboard to the white background cardboard, which I had covered with the stencil. Excess foam I took off again and dabbed all the rest off gently. After that I let everything dry well.

The edges of the butterfly, the splashes and the body I have emphasized with Polychromos pens.

I stamped the birthday sentiment with a matching shade on the motif. At the edges I drew the stitches and then matted the image on a yellow-orange card.

My Creation today is in ‘Chocolate & Lime’ dylusion spray using the shaving foam technique, layered on chocolate & Lime mirror board.

For the ink I used sepia archival ink and the awesome stamps are Sing and Soul Music with the grungy edge from the Edgy set.

These Are The Moments – Visible Image stamps

Good Evening! Thanks so much for visiting us here today on the Visible Image blog.

Every Thursday Teresa Morgan shares a brand new project with you and today she’s been playing with our stunning Revolution Set!

Over to Teresa…

Today I’m sharing a bright and colourful card using the Revolution set of stamps from Visible Image. I made this for my partner’s birthday as I was trying to capture our memories of holidays by the coast, watching the waves roll in….

Visible Image stamps - Revolution - Inky Horse - These Are The Moments - Teresa Morgan

I created a swirly background using the shaving foam technique and some Dylusions Ink Sprays, then I stamped the horse and embossed with white embossing powder. I added extra ‘sea spray’ by stamping and embossing along the bottom edge of the card. I added the sentiment and embossed with Fluorescent blue embossing powder to coordinate with my fresh colour scheme.

The background layer is white linen card – I stamped and embossed the script stamp from the set to cover the whole piece, then embossed the corner flourish with Fluorescent yellow embossing powder. I matted each piece onto black card and added a mirri silver layer between.

I love this set of stamps – Visible Image really captured the movement in the horse images and I think they look great in this fresh summery colour scheme.
