Hi there,

A quick post from me today, I am with cold, so am going to shut myself in a corner to sneeze and cough by myself, yep, that will be my craft Room then !!!!

This is a card I made for my eldest Son's Birthday a couple of weeks ago, using one of the unique new 'Visible Image' sets, plus a couple of must have background stamps.

The fabulous Visible Image stamps used are..........

The card is self explanatory really, Distress Inks used for the Wall, Embossing powders for the ink splats, and shrink plastic for the light bulbs.

Visible Image Stamps, Brusho's, Wow Embossing powder, Versafine Ink & Stampendous Frantage.

Hi there,

Just popping in to share a card, made using an awesome, new stamp set from Visible Image.

The stamp set I used is.........
 one of my personal faves !!!!


I made the background using Brusho's, sprinkle the paint crystals and spritz with water, it gave me a moody background, perfect for a rainy day.

Using some Black, and some White Frantage, I sprinkled it over the background and heat embossed from underneath.
I stamped the lady into a separate piece of card, using a red Versafine Ink, then added some glue and gilding flake onto her umbrella, and red Stickles onto the lady, leaving her legs free, when she was dry I fussy cut her.

I stamped the sentiment, added some gilding flake and some Stickles to 'Sparkle', and cut them out and mounted them onto red card.

Do take a look at the fantastic new stamp sets, some of them were aired on Create & Craft TV last Sunday HERE, and thank you for watching us and for your support in the sell outs.

Visible Image Stamps, Candy Box Crafts 'Boxette', Viva Chalk Paints, Archival Ink, Grungepaste, Gilding wax & Gilding flake.

I was lucky enough to have a project I'd created showcased, in the March 'Craft Stamper' magazine, it's so exciting to see my work in a publication.
 I was asked by Helen and Mark (aka Visible Image), to use one of their awesome new stamp sets, on a multi media project, so I chose a
 'Candy Box Crafts' fabulous 'Boxette' to work with, here is the result.

The stamp set I used was......Learn to Fly Again

I painted all the components of the Boxette with a coat of dark blue chalk paint, waited until it was dry then added a coat of pale blue chalk paint, when it was all dry I rubbed the paint down using a fine grade sand paper, which exposed the darker paint in places, giving it a bit of a shabby look.

Using a combination of gilding flake glue and Navy Archival Ink, I stamped all the pieces of MDF, using all three of the stamps in the set, and added Gold Gilding Flake to the gluey bits.

Using a stencil and some Grunge paste, I added bits of detail here and there on each piece, whilst still wet wet, I added fine glitter. 
After it was dry, I glued together all the components, making up the boxette.

To finish off the box, I went around all the edges with gold Gilding wax, and added a little Stardust Stickles for a bit of extra sparkle.

Don't forget that Mark and I are on the telebox on this 
Sunday (Valentines Day) 14th February, at 10am,
 We will be showcasing 6 brand new Stamp Sets, and the MDF Monoliths,
 showing you some techniques,
 and giving you ideas of how you could decorate them.

Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Heat Resistant Acetate & Wow Embossing Powder.

Hi there,
I'm back again with a tag I've made, using an awesome set of Visible Image Stamps. his one of the brand new designs, that are ready to pre-order now.

The set I've used on this tag is 'Learn to Fly Again'.

I used Distress inks for the background of the tag, the brighter the better, lol, and blended them together. I stamped the birds onto heat resistant acetate, using Versamark, then heat embossed using a gold sparkle embossing powder. I cut the acetate close to the outside birds and attached it to the tag with 3D gel.

On a separate piece of card, I stamped the feather in various colours to match the background, and a few in the same gold embossing powder, I then fussy cut them all, then made a nest with some corrugated kraft card and garden twine, and added some gold glitter too.

The sentiment was stamped onto Kraft card using Versamark, and heat embossed with white embossing powder, and torn around, I added some tacky glue, and some gold glitter to make it pop.

Pop over the the webshop and check out all the fantastic new Visible Image designs HERE.

Mark and I will be demoing some of them on Create & Craft TV, on Sunday 14th February (Yep, Valentines Day) at 10am.
