Artistic Outpost - Feb 2012 Release

I am so excited to share the February release of Artistic Outpost Stamps! 


Diesel Punk includes images of good looking guys, a beautiful dame, a kid ready to be a rocketeer, and fast machines to tempt their fates. It reminded me of the old Hollywood movies! 

Charles & Amelia includes  images featuring the king and queen of the skies when flying was more than transportation – it was an adventure.

Industrial Chic includes backgrounds for any of your projects – steam, diesel, or any other kind of punk.

London Elements includes more iconic images of London that are wonderful by themselves, and work beautifully with the London Underground or Loverly London plates. 

My first card comes from the Diesel Punk plate:
These two gentlemen in their leather gear reminded me of  the open road and the old movies.  I stamped the background using the images from the Diesel Punk plate and added a touch of color using watercolor pencils and waterbrush. 

The background layer of maps is from the Route 66 plate. I stamped the image repeatedly and added a touch of  color.  The sentiment is from the Charles & Amelia plate.  I stamped the first portion of the sentiment onto a piece of cardstock and created a banner with a few brass brads.

The next card is a gate fold card created using the new Charles & Amelia plate: 

I combined the images from the fun & funky Industrial Chic mixed with the Charles &Amelia plates to create fun backgrounds on the inside and outside of the card.  The main image is stamped in black archival ink and color with watercolor pencils and waterbrush. The Ephemera Backgrounds Ledger provides a wonderful backdrop to Charles and the front of the band on the card. 

My last project is from the London Elements plate:


The last card uses a die cut for the birdcage and the lovely teacup and Afternoon Tea sentiment in a fun and frilly card.  I accented the tea cup with a flower from the  Bloom & Grow plate. The birdcage is stamped with the ledger from Ephemera Backgrounds.

Hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the new plates, for more inspiration you need to stop over at the rest of the design teams blogs:   


Thanks for stopping by!

  11. What a lot of eye candy! I really like the gatefold card and the way you've framed him in an oval with the word FLY on both sides. The delicate bird looks fantastic too, as you've placed her outside the cage. Love it!
