Visible Image Stamps, Brusho's, Wow Embossing Powder and Angelina Fibres.


I hope you are all well,
just a quickie today, a card I made for one of my recent workshops, I do love passing on techniques.
 The unique stamps I've used, are designed and made by hand,
 by Mark and Helen at Visible Image,
they both work very hard, and are very passionate about their Company and their fabulous stamps.

I used Brusho's for the background, along with spray starch and cling film, such a cool vibrant outcome, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark, mixing 2 colours of sparkle Embossing powder, before heating to set. The Image is made using Angelina Fibres, placed ontop of the stamp which has Versamark on, then ironed, such a fab technique, and finally fussy cut.

If you are going to the NEC next week, do pop along to the Visible Image Stand, B09 where you meet Helen and Mark, see some of the stunning stamps available, also see loads of inspirational DT work, and you will also see me, I am doing 'Make & Takes', but get in early to book your place as they are limited.

It's the last few days to get your Pink entry into the Visible Image

Also pop over the the Visible Image Facebook Group, and see the inspiration the fans of the stamps are producing, HERE.

Visible Image Stamps, Alcohol Inks, Prima Mica Flakes, Stazon ink, & Wow Embossing Powder.

Gosh where has this week flown to, I think my craft room eats time, lol !!!!
Talking about Time, my creation for today, is a fab set of stamps from 

I am still feeling the vibe from the Visible Image Blog Hop last Friday, it was in aid of Breast Cancer Care, so I am carry on the theme, and using a bit of pink !

My background is a piece of glossy card, with the Shaving foam and Alcohol Inks technique, then added some texture using wax, and Mica flakes.
 I stamped the pocket watch with Stazon, onto Acetate, and then stamped again  (2nd generation), so it was very faint, then fussy cut both, I then used a gold Sharpie pen on the wrong side of the acetate.
 I stamped the clock again, onto white card, and heat embossed using a Gold Sparkle powder, fussy cut, also cutting out the face of the clock. I stamped the clock one last time, using Stazon, onto white card, cut the face out and attached it to the gold clock, then added Glossy Accents for the glass.
To finish, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed.

Don't forget the Visible Image 'Show and Tell', your chance to win some fabulous stamps, check it out HERE ( No blog needed).

Visible Image Stamps, Brusho's, Spectrum Noir Aqua Tints, Distress Inks, Wow Embossing Powder & Stickles.


It's Fabulous Friday, and I'm back with a little bit of inspiration for you, a card using some of those fantastic Visible Image Stamps that I love using so much.

On this card, the stamps I used are........
Winter Tree and the sentiment is Me Time.

A very simple card to make, I used some Brusho paints on the background, mixing them with water and just washing them over the card. I then used some Spectrum Noir Aqua Tint inks, and using the dropper provided in the kit, just dripped them down the card. This gives the impression of trees, so I stamped Winter Tree with Distress Inks onto the inky background. I finished off with the sentiment stamped in Versamark, and heat embossed with Black powder, I filled in the letters with some Stickles for that little bit of sparkle.

The October Visible Image 'Show and Tell' is going well, it has a Pink Theme to it this month, in aid of Breast Cancer Care, why don't you enter, for a chance to win a voucher for some yummy stamps, details HERE.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Wow Embossing Powder, and Versamark.

Hi there Crafty Friends,

No your eyes are not out of focus, lol, I wanted to try something a little different with this card, and I used a couple of super duper Visible Image Stamps.
 My inspiration came from a retro 3D poster I saw recently, although I haven't tried to view it through a pair of 3D glasses, lol, but you get the idea !!!!

The Visible Image stamps I've used are.......

I stamped the background with the Grunge Polka Dots , 4 times, using 4 different Distress ink colours, I also did the same on another piece of card and stamped the sentiment in Versamark, heat embossed it using clear embossing powder, fussy cut it, mounted it onto black card and fussy cut it again, to give a thin black outline.
 And hey look, no bling or glitter used, that was incredibly hard, lol !!!!

A new months 'Show and Tell' has been opened, your chance to win some awesome new Visible Image Stamps to add to your collection, just create something, using your Visible Image Stamps, and pop it in the album HERE.

Check out the Visible Image Facebook Group, to see what other fans have created, and of course daily inspiration from the Visible Image DT,
