Dream and Inspire with the new stamps from Visible Image

Dream and Inspire with the new stamps from Visible Image

Eeeek, the new stamps from Visible Image are out and I love them. My favorite? The mathematical ones. That’s why I had to use the Elemental stamp for my first post using the new ones. As a great coincidence, I found a bunch of old math and engineering books on a second hand website that I just had to incorporate. So I started with a collage and combined it with my favorite Colorations spray colors and some of the new and some of the “old” Visible Image stamps. Thankfully, I remembered to put up the camera this time, because I…

I have some exciting news for you: I’m now part of the Emerald Creek design team 😀 I’m super excited about that! The first time I heard about Emerald Creek was at Creativation when I took a quick class at their booth. I was stoked and I just had to ask her for a guest design opportunity. Since then I joined her for two guest posts and when a spot opened up at the design team, Kim asked me to join her. And here I am 🙂 The great thing is that you can benefit from this as well.

Colorful art journal page with shiny hearts using Distress Oxide and Emerald Creek embossing powder

Yesterday’s prompt over at Nathalie Kalbach’s Artful Adventure challenge was shiny and instead of finding anything shiny at home, I created a shiny art journal page using Distress Oxide for the background and Emerald Creek embossing powder for the shiny hearts. I started with adhering pieces of an old German book onto my page. Then I added a layer of clear gesso. Next I used my Clarity stencil brushes to blend 4 of the Distress Oxide colors together… …and added some water splashes to add more interest to the background. Then I added the bigger umbrella girl silhouette by blending…

Two “Simple” Cards – Guest Designing for Emerald Creek

Two simple cards with Emerald Creek and Ken Oliver Color Bursts

I’m so excited to be guest designing for Emerald Creek today and I’m so grateful for this opportunity. I met Kim at Creativation and after talking a bit I just asked her, if I could create a card with one of her amazing stamps. You should definitely take a look at her store, she has some super unique stamps, embossing powders and little gems. Because I liked the “simple” stamp from Kelly Klapstein so much, I decided to create two cards with it. I just love that font and as you might know, I’m not a “simple” card kind a…
