Peaceful Seas

Hello! We are back with more fantastic inspiration this evening! Sharon Traynor has been rather creative with our Zodiac Libra stamp set…


Hi there. Thanks for stopping by.

When is a set of balance scales, not a set of balance scales? …… when they are yachts of course ūüėČ
Today I ¬†have a fun mixed media card where a Visible Image stamp has also¬†been repurposed into a completely different image. It’s a¬†great one for the guys too.

Anyway, did you catch the amazing Visible Image shows on Create and Craft recently? Mark and Pauline did some incredible demos with the ‘Written in the Stars’ collection. And during the first show Mark¬†mentioned that¬†he could see a boat in the Libra symbol. “Yes!” (I thought), “he’s an absolute¬†genius! Of course the scales will make a super yacht. So out came my Libra stamps and here is the result.





Here’s how I made it:

First mask off¬†a section on the panel¬†where you want the sea to be, remembering to also mask¬†the bottom of the panel¬†where the ‘peaceful’ word will go, then swipe little light blue ink¬†across the unmasked section. Next spread grit past through the¬†fibres stencil with a palette knife and set the panel aside to dry (I left mine to dry overnight but I believe it dries quite quickly if you only have¬†a thin layer).

Stamp and heat emboss one of the scales from the Libra set 3 times on a piece of scrap card and fussy cut them out. Mark the bottom of the sails by drawing an additional line with a black pen and then colour the boats in. Stamp, heat emboss and fussy cut the word too.



When the grit past is dry, randomly make a few marks with the distress crayon colours, blending and spreading the colours over the grit past with your finger.

Remove the mask from the sky and using a mask cut like clouds, brush distress ink very lightly, moving the mask around until the sky is covered with clouds. Draw the birds in the sky with a black pen.



Using a pale blue pen make a border around the edges of the 2 panels. Mount the two panels together with fun foam and add them to the card blank. Add some stickles onto the sea for a little sparkle.

Glue the boats into place when the stickles has dried, using fun foam to make the boats different heights. Heat emboss the fragments from the How Fragile stamps set 3 times (the tiny triangle is the perfect size to make a flag for the top of the boats), colour the triangles in, fussy cut them and add them to the top of the boats with glue and fun foam. Attach the peaceful sentiment.

This evening we are showcasing the incredible Eileen Godwin who recently joined our team. Eileen has already been ‘wowing’ you with her beautiful cards…




Hello. I‚Äôm Eileen Godwin and have been happily crafting since 2004. After trying all sorts of crafty products I‚Äôve found that Stamps and Inks are ‚Äėmy thing‚Äô ! I retired at sixty, in 2008, after a full time career as a Pharmacy Manager in Retail Pharmacy. It was a stressful job but now I can craft all day! I live in a small village near Rochester, Kent, with my husband Ken and we share our home with two small doggies whom we adore and four ferrets! When we go on holiday they ALL come with us ‚Äėcos ‚ÄĚWe are family!‚ÄĚ I have a Blog¬†and run Craft Workshops in my local Village Hall.



Here are some absolute stunners created by Eileen…














You will find more of Eileen’s beautiful cards over on her blog.

Showcasing Jane Tyrrell!

Hello!

Today we are showcasing some of our favourite cards and projects from the very talented Jane Tyrrell who has been on the team for the last year. Jane will be continuing to inspire you with her gorgeous creations for the next year…




Hello I’m Jane from Jane’s Journal and after working for 34 years, until April 2016, as an NHS physiotherapist I am now free to follow my crafting journey.

I have been creative since I could hold a pencil and I have been paper crafting for over 15 years, more seriously since 2012. I am also a silversmith, jewellery maker, keen photographer, gardener and occasional cake decorator. I have been lucky enough to have some of my cards published and I now sell my cards at a local vintage tea rooms. I enjoy using different crafting techniques and styles and you will see me create anything from shabby chic, vintage to cute. I make cards, art journal pages, tags, mixed media pieces and altered objects and I love playing with new products. However my first love is, and always will be, stamping. I still own my very first stamp! I discovered Visible Image stamps in their very earliest days and I have been delighted to watch their meteoric rise in the crafting world. Their stamps really offer something different in this very competitive crafting market. I am thrilled to be on their team, and to be a part of their ongoing creative journey.

I write a blog where I share my inky creativity as well as my photography. I am totally inspired by my surroundings and by Mother Nature. I am lucky enough to have a little garden studio where I create during the warmer months of the year, surrounded by my flowers and ‚Äúhelped‚ÄĚ by my sweet cat Billy.



These are just a few of our favourite projects from Jane so far…














You will find more of Jane’s stunning projects over on her blog.

We look forward to sharing more wonderful inspiration from Jane over the coming months.

Showcasing Veerle Moreels!

Hi there! We hope you are having a great Saturday.

This weekend we are showcasing some of our favourite cards and projects from the awesome designers who are staying on the team.


Next up is the incredible Veerle Moreels!




My name is Veerle, I’m married and proud mom of 3 teenagers and I live in Belgium.

I’m a kindergarten teacher but I don’t teach anymore. I kind of rolled in the creative world when my kids were young and I had to find a way to take on all the photo’s I made of my children. That’s when I discovered scrapbooking and it all started for me. I started as a scrapbook consultant for a company in The Netherlands and internet brought me to mixed media and cardmaking today.

I love trying out all kind of different techniques and materials so I end up with all different styles of projects. My personal style however is the less cute style but slightly rougher style. Even though I do like to make CAS cards as well.



Here are just some of our most favourite projects from Veerle, who has now been on our Design Team for almost 2 years…














You will find more of Veerle’s beautiful projects over on her blog.

Welcome Heather Mitchell!

Hi there! We are really excited to announce the last 2 awesome designers joining us here at Visible Image to inspire you over the next year!


First up today is Heather Mitchell who lives in the UK…




Hello everyone… My name is Heather and I am super chuffed to have been chosen to be part of the amazing Visible Image DT.  I’ve been crafting for about 8/9 years although I’ve always been drawn to creative pursuits and as a small girl was always drawing/colouring painting.  I studied textile design and surface pattern for 4 years after leaving school and this has totally influenced the way I work as I love to layer papers and images and add textures to all my makes Рit just feels naked otherwise!

I live in Surrey with my partner and our two naughty little Dachshunds, Stan and Syd, who are often found asleep in the craft room under their duvet while I work.  I work full-time for London Underground so my days can be nights and nights days but I always try to find time to create as it keeps me balanced and sane… I honesty don’t know where I’d be without my craft room retreat.

I’m so looking forward to working with Mark and Helen and the Visible Image team as I’ve been an avid watcher from the wings for a while now and just love what everyone creates… I’m a little excited to be chosen as part of the new team so bring it on!!



Here are some of Heather’s stunning creations that caught our eye…

The next awesome designer joining our team is Josefine Fouarge¬†who lives in the USA…




I discovered my creative side in 2014 when I moved from Germany to the US to be with my very supportive husband and our Rat Terrier ‚ÄúFreedom‚ÄĚ. It started with simple layouts and handmade greeting cards and evolved into art journaling and mixed media over time. Today I love to experiment with different mediums and techniques (my favorite types of projects are messy and/or snarky) and inspire others by sharing my enthusiasm online and as a teacher in my local craft store Scrapbooking Forever & Crafts.



Here are some of Josefine’s awesome creations that wowed us…

Welcome Elisa Ablett!

Hi there!

All this week we are announcing the amazing designers joining our team here at Visible Image!


First up today we welcome the awesomely talented Elisa Ablett who lives in Australia…




Hi I’m Elisa, I live in a beautiful part of the East Coast of Australia with my Hubby and two boys and i have been art and crafting for many years. I majored in Art in college and I have a great range in my style from Mixed Media Art to Scrapbooking to Watercolour painting, Home decor items, Canvases, Natural Wall Hangings, mixed media pieces to Art Journalling and a combination of the lot at times. If i had to describe my style i would say eclectic, different and colourful. I love to use loads of different mediums on my projects but as my hubby would say I have a unhealthy addiction to stamps, stencils and paint. I also have a penchant for using upcycled or repurposing items for my projects, from natural items to hand dying fabric, wire, feathers, toilet paper and other unusual items. I absolutely love creating, its not just a hobby, it’s therapy and joy and everything in between.



Here are some of Elisa’s stunning creations that got our attention…









You will find more fabulous projects over on Elisa’s blog.

I am the owner of Damsel of Distressed Cards in Grand Forks, ND and teach cardmaking and mixed media art classes. My card designs are very eclectic and my favorite way to create is by layering and incorporating mixed media. I serve on several design teams across the blogosphere and have been published in Craft Stamper Magazine. I’m so excited to join the Visible Image team!

Take Your Broken Wings

Hello there! Helen here with my latest card!

Hope you had a good weekend.


I have been busy creating¬†some backgrounds ready for some of our NEW stamps!¬†Had lots of fun with brushos, Lindy’s sprays and Dylusions paints!

I decided to use some existing stamps on one of them though, as it was calling out to me for our awesome moth stamp…
I used turquoise, yellow and red brushos for this one, and once dry I added some more water
and a touch more paint along the top, allowing it to run down my card

IMG_2264



I stamped and embossed the large moth, and then stamped two
of the small silhouette moths in black versafine

IMG_2275



I also stamped and embossed my chosen quote to make sure it stood out against the background

IMG_2280



I added a glow around parts of the moth using diluted white paint, to make it stand out more
and splattered some of the paint over my card

IMG_2300



Using some of the excess card from my background, I stamped and
embossed another large moth

IMG_2299 (1)



I coloured in the skull using a white pen then layered it on top of my original moth
using some foam pads for some extra dimension

IMG_2311



Lastly I flicked some black Lindy’s spray¬†here and there, then¬†matted onto black card
before adhering to my white card blank

I absolutely love the drama of it! Hope you do too.



I am entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge! The theme is spread your wings.

Tweedles in Wonderland

Hello! Thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today!

Are you enjoying our NEW stamps previews? #7 will be along a little later.

First of all we have some more fabulous inspiration to share with you, so we will pass you over to our Australian DT member Dot¬†Leathbridge…


Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee have caught my eye at Visible Image this fortnight.


The stamp set has one tweedle on it, but if you white out the pupils of the eyes and redraw them with black fine liner, then you have them both!



2017-01-18 Visible Image - stamps - Tweedledum - character - Dot Leathbridge


Finally I overcame my ‘fear’ of using the gelli plate and had heaps of fun creating some backgrounds. ¬†The background behind the background was an off-cut of one of these. ¬†I don’t know what I was so afraid of!


The tweedles were easy to colour in and easy to cut out! Love that!



I have been adding to my stock and now have quite a good range of¬†Visible Image¬†stamps for sale in Australia….so, exciting times ahead.


Enjoy!
Dot



Thanks Dot! What an awesome card! Love love loving that background ‚ô°¬† Looking forward to seeing more of your gelli plate creations! You will find more of Dot’s gorgeous projects over on her blog, along with her contact details.


All our current character stamps are sadly retiring, so if you want to get your hands on them you need to be quick! They have over 30% OFF right now!

You will find them in our Retiring Stamps section along with some other fantastic designs! Sadly the Cheshire Cat has already sold out…

The Ripple Effect

Good morning! Or maybe it’s afternoon or evening where you are! Thank you so much for visiting our blog today.

Teresa Morgan is here with some awesome inspiration for you…

Welcome back to today‚Äôs Thrilling Thursday post for Visible Image stamps. Today I am sharing the project I created for the January issue of Craft Stamper magazine ‚Äď a gorgeous canvas!



2017-01-12 Visible Image - ripple effect stamp - canvas - Teresa Morgan

I used a 12 inch square black canvas ‚Äď if you can‚Äôt get a black one, then just paint a white one with black gesso or acrylic paint and allow to dry.I stamped the ripples in a diagonal design across the canvas using Versamark ink so I could emboss with metallic embossing powders. Don‚Äôt worry if your stamped images aren‚Äôt perfect ‚Äď canvas is textured and can be tricky to get a clean image. A lot will be covered once the canvas is finished.



Visible Image Stamps - The Ripple Effect, Tomorrow Doesn't Exist, wall art, canvas

I took some black card and stamped and embossed several sets of ripples before cutting the different rings apart with a sharp craft knife. These are attached with Pinflair glue gel to create a dimensional effect.



Visible Image Stamps - The Ripple Effect, Tomorrow Doesn't Exist, wall art, canvas

Finally I stamped and embossed the sentiment on black card, cut apart and attached with glue gel before setting aside to dry.

Love you – Visible Image

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting our blog today.

We have a stunning card to share with you today, which also has a brilliant video tutorial, created by Veerle Moreels…



It’s my turn to share a project here¬†at Visible Image and would like to share some Inktense Visble image love ^.^ ¬†I loved combining the Visible Image stamps together this way. And I tried out the inktense colorpencils for the very first time on this card.

Curious on how I brought the 3 stamps together and how I used the pencils? I have put it all in this liddle video tutorial for you…



I’m pretty sure you will see more cards like these show up. ¬†Maybe even recognize part of it in my Christmas cards ( I really have to get started I know 👀 ) But for now it’s this one…as we can never say “I love you” enough.

Still sparkling despite the rain – Visible Image

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today!

We have lots of inspiration¬†to share with you today… catching up with all the fabulous¬†cards and projects our amazing team have been creating.

Here’s Pauline who loves a bit of sparkle…


Hellooooo,
 
I hope you are all well, and as there has been rather a lot of rain lately, I thought that my¬†‘Visible Image Stamps’¬†inspiration this week, should emulate the weather, lol, so I used their awesome Sparkle in the Rain’ stamp set.
 
 


visible-image-stamps-sparkle-in-the-rain-by-pauline-butcher


I started off with a piece of A4 white card, and gave it a spray with a Purple and a Lemon ‘Starbust’ spray ink, from Lindy’s Stamp Gang, super vibrant colours which are full of lovely mica, making a fabulous glimmer. I then cut my card, to fit a 6″ card blank. I used the rain stamp and the puddle stamp with some versamark, and heat embossed with some ‘Sparkling Snow’ powder, by Wow.
On some heat resistant acetate, using Versamark, some Black Wow Embossing powder, and the Lady Stamp, I heat embossed, and fussy cut it, adding yellow Stickles to her Umbrella and her boots.
 


 


On some more white card, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, fussy cut it, then coloured it with some Distress Inks.
 
 
Still a couple of weeks to enter the¬†‘Show & tell’, for a chance to win a ¬£25 voucher, to spend on luscious¬†new Visible Image goodies.
Take a peek in the Visible Image Group too, there is daily inspiration from the DT, and members too……HERE.
 
Thanks for popping in, hugs Pauline xxxx

News & 25% OFF code @ Visible Image

Hi there!

Thank you for taking time to visit our blog today.


As you may know, we have recently re-branded and we’re loving our ‘new look’¬†colourful packaging…





visible-image-promo-oct-2016



We have now stopped manufacturing the stamps ourselves but we continue to package them all in house,
and everything is still designed by Mark.

As quality is always top of our list, the etching is the deepest possible for clear photopolymer stamps,
so as always they stamp beautifully.




We had struggled to keep up with the demand for our stamps with just Mark making them,
and the waiting time for orders was long. 

So we are very happy to announce that orders placed by 2pm Monday to Friday
will now be dispatched the same day!



Our stamp sets are now larger in size so we have been busy designing additional stamps
to compliment our existing sets…











You will find ALL our current designs HERE!


Sadly due to family commitments we aren’t at the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC this year.
We will really miss seeing all our regular customers at the show.

But… to celebrate our ‘new look’ we are giving you 25% OFF our stamps!*

Just enter coupon code: newlook2016
at the checkout!

 
*offer ends midnight UK time on Sunday November 6th



Thanks again for taking time to read about all our changes. We have lots of exciting plans for the next year!


Have a great weekend.

Mark and Helen xx

Glimmer of Light – Visible Image

Hello ūüôā Thanks for visiting our blog!

Susanne Rose is here with a fantastic tutorial today…


Hi everyone!

Today I’d like to share some spooky Artist Trading Cards with the awesome Visible Image “Glimmer Of Light” stamp set. I also have the step by step instructions for you:


An ATC is a card that measures 2.5″ by 3.5″. I cut two from a Brusho background.




I used my square mini Gelli Plate to add some texture. I used the mini Honeycomb Delight stencil by STAMPlorations plus “Wedding Cake” paint from Martha Stewart. I stamped the sentiment, which comes with the Visible Image stamp set, randomly on top. Just to create more texture.


√ć stamped the main image – the¬†death’s-head hawkmoth – on my cards and also onto some white cardstock.



I used Distress Inks to color the moths.



I adhered the butterflies after I stamped the light. I stamped the light on white cardstock and adhered it, too.



I inked the edges with Distress Ink “Black Soot”.



For a special finish, I used some silver embossing paste and scribbled it all arround the edges.

Hi Guys


It’s good to be back, I took last Tuesday off, had one of those weeks of not enough hours in the day, days in the week ….. I’m sure we’ve all had them!


Another make using the amazing and unique¬†VISIBLE IMAGE STAMPS¬†….. I can’t imagine my days without them ….. I LOVE them ūüėÄ


The dark nights are creeping in, the smell and colours of autumn are in abundance, which has inspired me for todays make…


For my background I used oranges and blues dylusion inks.


For all the stamps I used wow metallic golds and coppers and some little acorns acquired a while ago but never used until now, but perfect for this scene.
