Artistic Outpost - July 2011 Release

I was so excited to see the new Artistic Outpost plates.  There are three new plates available: Halloween Treats, Apothecary and Frosty and Friends.  The Christmas and Halloween images remind me of  old fashioned cards and treats.  The Apothecary plate has some wonderful vintage images for Halloween or masculine cards and projects.  The plates are available to order now but won't ship until next week.

My first project uses a  Maya Road ATC Box to showcase a variety of the Apothecary images:
The images are from the new Apothecary plate along with a few images from Steampunk, Halloween Treats, and The Outpost.  I had so much fun mixing and matching to create a pharmacist box.
The edges were covered in tissue tape with a touch of distressing. Each box received it's own wallpaper from pattern paper to pages from a vintage book.  Each little ATC speaks to the pharmacy and the druggists who worked there. 
The next project uses whimsical Halloween images to create a necklace and a pair of earrings.

This is a close up of the charms created by stamping on Shrinky Dink using StazOn. I heated them up with my heat gun with the exception of the skeleton he had to be shrunk in the toaster oven as his little legs and arms curled up.

The images are from the Halloween Treats, Apothecary, Haunted Halloween plates.

Tanya was willing to model the necklace and earrings for me. :)


The last project is from the sweet Frosty and Friends plate.

The little girl image is adorable with her sweet outfit. She was stamped using brown ink and colored with watercolor pencils. She sits on a doily with a touch of sponging and accented with Prima flowers and fall trim.
The design team has created some awesome projects and cards which you can go see in the Artistic Outpost Gallery. The design team is also sharing wonderful projects on their blogs:
