The winner for the Ranger Ink feature (one Dylusions stamp set each) are: Delphine Montano & Pamela R Levingston Woohoo – Congratulations 🙂 I sent you …

Sweet cocoa with Emerald Creek aroma embossing powder

Emerald Creek Sweet Coffee

Hi everyone and welcome to a new project for Emerald Creek. This time I decided to create something using the Aroma embossing powder. They are called Aroma because they smell like whatever the name is, for example the Chocolate Dream that I’m using smells like Swiss hot chocolate, yummy. So, I had to pair it with the new Unwind stamp set from Pam Bray to create a sweet cocoa card. During the video I’m showing you how to create a fall colored background using water color powders and how to color an image using embossing powder. Both super fun and …

Simon Says Stamps Stamptember

Hi and welcome to Stamptember – woohoo! This is the first time I’m celebrating with Simon Says and I’m super excited to share two cards with you that I made with one of their new background stamps. For those of you who are coming from the big party over on the Simon Says blog – welcome 🙂 – my name is Josefine and I’m a mixed media artist who loves the messy way of crafting.

Emerald Creek and the Great Outdoors

The great outdoors with Emerald Creek

Oh my, I had so much fun creating these four cards. It feels like I haven’t made a mixed media card in forever, even though I know it’s not true 😉 So what better timing than the current theme over on the Emerald Creek blog Great Outdoors. I love playing a little and then making a few simple cards. These are a great combination of paint splattering (just a little) and embossing powder fun. You can see all the details in my video. Here I show you how I created the backgrounds using a brayer and my Gel Press and …

Going batty with Catherine Pooler

Going Batty with Catherine Pooler

Trust me, I am definitely going batty over this release. Halloween is my favorite (if you haven’t figured that out yet…) and I had so much fun playing with this release. I thought that this release needs to be featured in the right light (see where I’m going with this? 😉 ) and that’s why I had to pull out the Glow int the Dark embossing powder. And as you will see throughout the hop, the Creative Team has a thing for it. I created two cards for the hop. One that features the glow in the dark embossing powder …

Endless Summer Cheerful Mixed Media Cards for N*Studio

Endless Summer Mixed Media Cards for Nathalie Kalbach

Hi everyone! Summer has started, it’s official. We are having the first days with over 100 degrees in California, so I spend a lot of time in my pool. When we bought our house, we fell in love with the pool. It is plastered with a variety of blue tiles which shine amazing when the sun hits them. The colors of the pool were my inspiration for this month’s theme – Endless Summer. But as always, I started with those colors and then couldn’t stop. But let’s start at the beginning. I decided to create a few greeting cards. I …

Hello and welcome to a new blog post for Visible Image. This time I’m excited to share the new Alice in Wonderland sets with you, especially the Cheshire Cat. I LOVE Alice in Wonderland! It’s one of my all time favorite stories. When I saw the cat stamp I knew that I wanted to create the disappearing Cheshire Cat and just had to come up with a plan on how to do that. In my video I’m sharing my plan and the slightly wonky execution. At least at first, it got better later on 😉 What do you think? Did …

Nathalie Kalbach released a couple new red rubber stamps through Rubbermoon and they are perfect for the upcoming Christmas season or just for anything when you like circles 😉 I prepared a few samples for you.
