Visible Image @ Hobbycrafts show – NEC Birmingham

Hi There! Thanks for coming to visit our blog today.

It’s a quick post this evening as we are doing the final prep for the biggest craft show of the year here in the UK… Hobbycrafts @ the NEC in Birmingham!

It’s been a crazy busy few weeks making, cutting and packaging all the stamps to take to the show, but now that it’s all done we are getting excited for the show and looking forward to seeing lots of you there ūüôā We will have some great offers on our stand, and we also have one of our fabulous Demonstrators, Pauline Butcher, holding ‘Make & Take’ sessions on our stand.

If you would like to come and join in the stamping fun, you’ll need to head over to book in on stand B09 first thing, as places are limited!

Here¬†are the¬†fantastic tags Pauline will be teaching you to create¬†during¬†the Make & Take sessions…

NEC Make & Take Tags - Pauline Butcher

We’ll be creating with inks, glitter and some of our awesome funky Music stamps!

While we are away, our amazing team will still be bringing you their daily inspiration. You can find it over in our Facebook Group or on our Facebook page. And we will catch up with all their wonderful projects here on the blog when we are back next week.

We will also be showcasing the wonderful PINK challenge entries next week too! Thank you to everyone who entered… and to everyone who donated or bought our Stay Strong stamp. Our grand total over on our Just Giving Page for Breast Cancer Care stands at ¬£475.50…. that’s 95% of our target so it’s AMAZING!

Have a great week, and we hope you’ll come and say ‘Hi’ if you are coming to the NEC… you’ll find us on stand B09, the 2nd row from the start! You won’t be able to miss us ūüėČ

Take care,

Funky Music Coasters – Visible Image Stamps

Hello! It’s Fridayyyyyy ūüôā ¬†And that can only mean one thing…

Here’s the fabulously talented Pauline Butcher with today’s awesome inspiration

Hi again crafty friends,
Today I’d like to share a set of Coasters, from Candy Box Crafts Ltd., that I’ve decorated,¬†using the new unique Music stamps from¬†Visible Image.

These were a sample for my Inky Workshop 3, the results of this fab day are on the post below, do take a look.

Visible Image stamps - Funky Music stamps - Band - Jazz - Coasters - Pauline Butcher


The stamps I used for these coasters were……….
Feel The Beat,¬†Sing,¬†Rock Out,¬†Jazz it Up,¬†Play it Loud¬†and¬†Soul Music, the little edging stamp is a sneak peek of the Visible Image freebie, it’s out very soon in the May issue of Craft Stamper.
I painted all the components with a neutral base colour acrylic paint, used a stencil from my stash with distress inks for the background, then stamped the fab images on to each coaster using the very bright Oak House Studio ink pads, I completed it with a dash of a Gold paint pen, Stickles and some Treasure Gold gilding wax.
There is still loads of time to get your Visible Image entry into the ‘Show & Tell’, for a chance of winning some new stamps of your choice, take a look¬†HERE.
Pop along to the Visible Image Facebook group to see all the news, and lots of inspiration HERE.
Thank you for dropping in,
Hugs, Pauline xxxxxx

These are AMAZING! So cool and funky! You will find more of Pauline’s fabulous work over on her blog,¬†with more photos from her inky workshop.

We will be back over the weekend with more fantastic inspiration ūüôā

The Background is Aqua Tints, with bleach flicked over it, to look like¬†strobe¬†lighting, after glittering bits of the band members, I coated them with Glossy Accents to make them pop, it does look better in the flesh, photo’s never really do a piece justice.
