A Rose just for You - Visible Image Stamps

Hello and welcome to you today.
There has been some new exciting things happening at 
But first let me share with you my weekly DT inspirations for the Stamp-Tastic
 This weeks post I decided to go with clean and simple and let the awesome quality of these stamps speak for themselves.
I used one of the stunning Roses from the
Immortal Love Stamp Set along with the Barb Wire stamp as the stem which is also in the stamp set. It really is an exceptional stamp set and at an outstanding price of £12.99 it really is a must for every stamper.
Superb detail and a crisp stamped image every time you use them.
I also used the Bronte Border background stamp to compliment the simplicity of today's post, I adore the Bronte Border you can make the most perfect background papers with it or just use it as a statement as I have on this.
 Crazy when you think for just £4 you can stamp and make background papers in any colour you like.
 Visible Image Background Stamps are a must have in your collection they match up perfectly and are major exceptional value for money.

 Go take a peek trust me when I say you really do NEED to.
Other items used:
Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo Distress inks and Cream Card 6x6 cream Blank Card and Glue Gel.

I distressed the edges of my card and stamped the barb wire and Bronte Border onto my card and matted it onto my blank card. I then took a separate piece of card stamped the roses and cut it out and then used a water brush to colour it in with the Victorian Velvet distress ink and then curled the roses slightly and then using glue gel placed it onto the top of the barb wire.

If you would like some extra inspiration come and join the
 Visible Image Facebook Group
You will be made most welcome and the lovely customers and talented DT all share their creations to inspire you.
 Not only that the Seriously Talented Mark & Helen the duo behind Visible Image hang out there to, so don't Delay come and say HEY.

New Home - Visible Image Stamps

Hello and welcome to you today I hope you have been having some crafty fun.
It's DT day for me for the Fantastic
I've combined a few stamp sets on today's post to show just how good all the stamp collections work so well together.

The idea for this creation came to me once I purchased the little wooden ladder.
 I was so pleased and grinning from ear to ear once I finished it.
I started with an 8x8 blank card and did some simple mat and layering with black card. 
I then made some wallpaper using a stamp from the awesome
I rolled over a piece of the wallpaper to make it look like it was just being put up.

I then masked the paint pots to get one behind the other and then stamped out the paint brush on a separate piece of card using a black ink pad and Salty Ocean Distress ink and cut it out. I also stamped the splat from the stamp-tastic set.
I also added some glossy accents to the splat to make it look wet.

The New Home sentiment is from
Three brilliant stamp sets perfect for every occasion and all a must in your stamp collection.
Trust me You NEED Them 

Other Items used:
Distress ink Salty Ocean - White & Black Card - Black Ink Pad - Glossy Accents - Wooden Ladder

Craft Stamper Magazine Review

Hello to all you lovey Crafters.
Today's post is all about the Craft Stamper Magazine as I was so lucky to be asked to do a review of what I would call the best stamping magazine on the market.

Straight away from the front cover it looks captivating fresh and interesting, the magazine always comes with a free stamp and at the bottom of this post there is a little card I've made with this issue's freebie.

As soon as you open the magazine there is lots to inspire you, the contents page is well listed with clear headers to whats in the issue.
There are clear instructions along with a list of all the products used on how to make the projects that are shown in the magazine, which I think is a great help to all stampers.

The First Impressions section is super it shows a collection of new crafty items on the market and it also has several giveaways which of course is always great for us to extend our crafty stash for Free plus I also like the fact you can enter by post aswell as online. 

In my opinion there is a great mixture of inspiration and advertising as I feel inspirational photo's is what I want to see along with great products to use with my stamping.

Its a great magazine for new stampers as well as established stampers as it covers lots of different levels and themes from clean and simple to the extravagant altered art.

Its so nice to see projects showcased from customers of the magazine aswell as the projects from the professional crafters that inspire us on a daily basis.

The magazine cost £4.50 which is very reasonable as you get outstanding photography great inspiration all printed on quality paper. There is also a tantalising offer to subscribe to the magazine.

This really is a must have craft magazine bursting with inspiration from cover to cover.
Get your new copy Here now
Here is my clean and simple Card  made using August's Craft Stamper Freebie
Items used:
Picked Raspberry distress ink - Wow embossing powders Clear ultra Fine and Tickled Pink - White Card - Black Card and Black Gems.
To Make this is simple card:
Take a 5 x 5 blank white card, first mask off a section of the card then using a Versmark ink pad stamp the telephone stamp randomly across the masked section and use the clear embossing powder then heat it till it melts, next cover the masked area with the distress ink and then dry it with a heat gun, once dry flick some water onto the distress ink to take some on the ink out in places and dry again (this will create some texture). Stamp the telephone and emboss it in the tickled pink and cut it out and matt onto a black circle.
To finish add a sentiment and some gems.

Ttfn i'm off to get my new September issue of Craft Stamper Magazine
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today.
Stay Safe and Happy Crafting.
