2020 Vision | Eye Stamp

Hello and Happy New Year to you! We are very excited for the year ahead with lots of exciting new releases planned and an incredible Design Team inspiring you with their amazing projects! Kicking off a brand new year of inspiration is Jane Tyrrell with an awesome New Year card featuring our iconic eye stamp and more…


Good morning,

Today I am sharing my first make for Visible Image in 2020. I decided that I needed an injection of colour. I chose to use the iconic original large eye stamp from Where Dreams Take You


eye stamp | clear | rubber


I teamed it with some of the words from Destination Unknown


paper plane | boat | stamp | destination unknown | adventure



and the time spiral stamp from Ahead of our Time




I also wanted it to have the new decade on it so I used the numbers from Alphabetical to make a card.


alphabet stamp set | rubber | clear



This is what I got up to;


First I stamped and embossed the eye onto white mixed media card


I used these distress inks



I masked the eye and blended the colours onto the card



Once finished I removed the mask



I then stamped the time swirl using archival ink



and added the words



I added 2020 using the 2 and 0 and stamping them twice




I finished off by adding some green gel pen to the pupil of the eye




Here is my finished card;




Some close ups..









Thanks so much for stopping by.

Back soon.

Bye for now,

Your Future is in YOUR Hands!

Good Evening! We hope you have enjoyed seeing all the amazing inspiration we have shared here on the blog today!

Our final post today comes from Pauline Butcher…

Helllloooooo again,
 
I’m back with a card I’ve created using a set of the brand new stamps from  Visible Image..
 



 



The stamps I’ve used are…


 



I blended Oxide inks through the stencil, stamped the swirly clock using a Embossing pad, and heat embossed using Blue Embossing Powder, I also stamped the birds in black ink, and stamped the words in black and coloured them in.


The hand was stamped onto acetate, and heat embossed using Black Embossing Powder, and fussy cut, also adding some green paint to the reverse of it. The people were stamped onto white card, heat embossed using Black Embossing Powder, and fussy cut, and finally the sentiment was stamped onto white card, heat embossed again using Black powder, and fussy cut!




 I attached all  the fussy cut components to the card, using some 3D gel glue.



 



 Thanks for popping in.
Hugs Pauline xxxx

Time is Ticking…

Hello! We have some superb Saturday inspiration coming your way today from Nicky Gilburt…



I’ve been playing with the fantabulous Ahead of our time and Alphabetical stamps from Visible Image, making up my own quotes using the letters, and backgrounds too…can you see the tick tock? Look into the image! Having all these possibilities allows you to really get creative. No constraints, no restrictions…think of something to say and say it!!



 

I inked up my backgrounds with distress oxides and splashed the card with water to get the bleached-out effect. I stamped my main feature with brown Nuvo Hybrid ink, I love this ink as you don’t have to think about what pens to use with them -it’s untouchable, there’s no ‘wrong’ medium to use! Alcohol or water-based pens – they can’t touch it!

 


I formed the words with the stamps. They look quite lively here, but once all the other elements are added they will become more of a background.






The masking of the frames from the alphabetical set resulted in a funky display of boxes into which I stamped my required lettering.




Adding extra stamps from the set, in dark colours, and shading from the outside in with distress inks, adds, I hope, to the depth of the image, or at least that’s what I tried to create! I also masked over the whole of the ‘MAN’ boxes to bring the letters to the foreground.



Stamps Used:

Ahead of our Time




Somewhere in Time




Alphabetical




Happy Crafting

Brilliant card Nicky! Love how you used the alphabet in the background for added interest along with the cogs! ♡

Fluttering Butterflies

Hi there! Thanks for coming to check out today’s inspiration here on the blog. Jane Tyrrell is here with her latest project…


Good Evening all,


I hope you had a lovely weekend? We enjoyed a family BBQ at my daughter’s, it was so good to all get together with both sides of the family. It was the 10th year they have hosted it..how the years fly by.

I am here with my weekly post for Visible Image, and some new inspiration.
The bees have been humming around and I have seen lots of butterflies but they seem to vanish whenever I try to grab my camera!


However one found it’s way into my kitchen…or perhaps this might be a pretty moth?




My card today was inspired by these amazing insects and the sunny colours in my garden, and uses (in my opinion) the best butterfly stamps on the market.  Visible Image have sold these gorgeous butterflies for some years.


I also used the brilliant time swirl as I had the idea to have the tiny butterflies emerging from the end of it.



These were the stamp sets I worked with:










I created a distress oxide background



 ..I love the effects you can get with the Oxides…a real splash of colour here



I stamped the time swirl. I also stamped and embossed some butterflies on some inky mop up card and fussy cut them out.


I added the butterfly shadow and stamped the small butterfly silhouettes emerging from the time swirl. The sentiment is from the Unicorn set. I stuck the fussy cut butterflies over the shadows which gives such a cool 3D effect.









We hope to see lots of you joining in with this month’s “a splash of colour” challenge over in the Visible Image Facebook group. You could be the random winner of a £40 coupon to spend in the shop!


Thanks so much for stopping by today and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me. Keep cool and carry on crafting.


Back soon!
Bye for now,
Jane x
