Hello it's Jane here
and I am absolutely delighted to announce that Susan is now stocking Visible Image stamps.
If you have not heard of these stamps you are missing a real treat. I am lucky enough to have found Visible Image stamps about 13 years ago when the company was in its infancy. Earlier this year I was thrilled to be asked to join their design team.
As an introduction today I thought today I would showcase some of the stamp sets that Country View Crafts has in stock by sharing some of my recent projects I have made with them. Grab a cuppa while I share some photos of my makes. I will give the links to the CVC website as I go where you can purchase them.
Possibly their most popular current set, released in February, is Stay Curious
There are also Create it
(lots of fab little accents,useful in mixed media too)
and Own it
(great sentiments which works so well with the Face it (and any other stamps)
This was a shrink plastic bag charm I made.
They also have a 3 brand new sets which were launched to great acclaim on Friday.....Somewhere in Time,
Ahead of our time
and a fab alphabet called Alphabetical
These new sets are larger, A5 and there is so much to play with.These really fill a gap for those hard to make male themed projects. I'm sure it's not just me who struggles with them! This project uses stamps from the new Time sets;
Their stamps not only make fab cards but are brilliant for mixed media work and on canvas or 3D objects too. I had a 3D cat project in Craft Stamper which I will share on my own blog soon. Every set comes with an inspirational quote.
Below is a mixed media card I made with stamps from the Destination unknown set
together with script from the Scripted Streets set (not yet stocked). What fun are those paper planes!
The butterflies are from one my all time fave sets Own kind of beautiful
In the card above I also used an "Express yourself" quote (Love you longer). Susan will be hopefully be stocking these single quote stamps soon. 1 of my other fave Visible Image quotes is on this card... Life can be tough
The stamps also work brilliantly with backgrounds made using Tim Holtz' new Distress Oxides. You can see in the card above that I used some of the little accent stamps from the Own it
Finally if you like something more girlie you will love the Born to perform set
I used a sentiment for the Own it
set with my ballet dancer..don't you love those ballet pumps too..these work perfectly on a card all by them self too.
This is just a small selection of the range of Visible Image stamps and a tiny selection of the work I have made ..more feature regularly on my blog here
. I cannot recommend these stamps more highly. They are gorgeous quality; really thick, clear photopolymer and stamp perfectly every time. They are designed by Mark Alexander in Wales and made in the UK . Mark's designs are just that little bit different and unlike any others on the market.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of Visible Image's stamps. You can view the current range that is in stock at CVC here
..I will share more projects with them here soon. Remember that Country View Crafts offers free
UK postage so you really are getting a fab deal her by buying them here. You can also stock up with all your favourite inks and craft supplies too!
If there are any other from the Visible Image stamps range which you would like to see Susan stock, or me to showcase with a project, please feel free to leave a comment on this post. She plans to order some new collections soon.
Thanks for staying til the end of this rather long post 😊 I think you might be able to tell that I rather love these stamps, they constantly inspire my crafting.
Bye for now,
