Sing Out Loud!

The Sing set of stamps from Visible Image is definitely one for the girls!  She has attitude, she has style and she has flair.

Because she has such star power I’ve teamed her up with a heap of stars! This card doesn’t use any stamping techniques at all – it is stamping all the way.

The stars come from the Rock Out set and from the Feel The Beat set.  All of these sets were on Create and Craft in the UK last weekend and are so much fun to play with.  The background splatters are from the Somewhere In Time set. This set has so many hidden treasures that can be used for far more than the obvious.

The inks are archival, oxides and versafine.

I would love to enter the following challenges with this card:

Craft Stamper – September Challenge, Anything Goes

Simon Says – It’s Written In The Stars

Rock Out!

Rock Out

is another of my all time favourite stamp sets from Visible Image.

and the guitar player is one of the first stamps from Visible Image that I ever used, which you can see here.

This set had extra stamps added to it when the new packaging, and larger format of the sets, came out this year … and I have had a play with a few of them in the background for this card.  The “Rock Out” set is so versatile!

The oxide background has some of the star clusters discretely stamped into it, with extra stars stamped in oxides around the guitar player.

The star cluster is also used for the edging and to give the guitar player some grounding … and some little stars have been stamped and cut out for a little extra.

This was one of those cards that when you start playing with ink and stamps, well, you just want to keep playing … so I added some more stars from the “Universal” set and gold embossed them.

Magpie’s Treasure

Magpie’s Treasure

is a card that I’ve made especially for Rubber Dance. 

We have magpies all around the area where I live – noisy birds, but the warbling sounds amazing!  It’s nesting time at the moment so you need to be careful when you go for a walk or you might get swooped.  You have to respect the magpie!

… and my footy team is the ‘Magpies’, so I was instantly drawn to this stamp.  It has been designed by Melina Dahl especially for Rubber Dance – and she has done an amazing job!

If you would like to see how this came together, I have a step x step guide over on the Rubber Dance blog.

 

 

The Rubber Dance theme challenge – ‘Any Kind Of Embossing’ goes until the end of the month.

There is still plenty of time to enter so please pop on over and play along.

 

Rubber Dance stamps are also available from my Etsy shop – www.etsy.com/shop/inkartdesigns

Love You Longer

Love You Longer

is a great sentiment stamp from Visible Image that can be used for so many things.

I’ve combined it with the feather from Learn To Fly Again for this card.

 

The background is made using alcohol inks and the sentiment is masked off and stamped in two parts.

I’ve made a quick 5 minute tutorial on the technique for creating this background

which can be found here on Youtube.
