Time for cocktails and the new March Visible image release
I am excited today to be blogging my first design team make with the brand new Visible Image March release. There are three fab new A6 stamp sets with coordinating dies and six A7 sets. Pre orders opened on the website on Friday for worldwide release on Friday 24th March. You can see them all here.
I am so delighted to see this set added to the Visible Image drinks cabinet. There are so many fun stamps in the set...3 different glasses to choose from, no less than 6 fruit elements, a straw, cocktail umbrella and an ice cube. There are coordinating dies for all of these...a real game changer for those people who dislike fussy cutting. I love fussy cutting but these dies really do speed everything up.
This is what I got up to; I sprayed a rainbow of distress oxide sprays across a piece of white card, adding some water and allowing the inks to drip down. I then I left it to dry.

Daffodils for St David's day and Mother's day
Hello all and welcome to my fortnightly blogged design team make for Visible Image. Their new February release has really taken the crafting world by storm and shhhh there is more to come later in March 😀
Mother's day in the UK is on 19th March and as today is St David's day I thought it would work perfectly to share a step by step of my Mother's day sample I made using the gorgeous Golden daffodils set
with an aperture made using the Broken mesh layering die.
Right from the first day I designed some samples using the gorgeous layering dies I discovered that the apertures left when die cutting the shape are as useful as the die cuts themselves. I have shared lots of makes over the last year using all 3 of them.
This is what I got up to;
I used the Broken mesh die to cut an aperture in a piece of 4 3/4 by 6 3/4" turquoise card.
I stamped the sentiment at the bottom in black and clear heat embossed.
I found a piece of left over Brushos card from my stash
