Artistic Outpost May 2012 Release - Kudzu Kafe

Today is the May release day for Artistic Outpost!  The new set being released is called Kudzu Kafe.
The new plate includes nostalgic images featuring a roadside cafe, children from the early 1900's,
and Thoreau sentiments  which work beautifully with so many of the
other collections.



I was inspired by the Kudzu Kafe stamp shape to create a mini book:


The book partially opened to the center:


The first two pages:


I used the birds from the Bluebird set along with the Kudzu Kafe images. I added a little banner along the side from the Country Life plate.



The images and backgrounds are from Bluebird, The Flower Market and Kudzu Kafe.
 
The last two pages on the inside use The Outpost, The Flower Market, and the Bluebird set. 

 

The back cover is from The Outpost and I  love the contrast from the store to the scenery.

For more inspiration and fabulous creations take a peek at what the rest of the DT has created!

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. I think I just froze when I saw this in the gallery for the first time. I absolutely blew me away! You have created an incredible work of art with just stamps. No gimmicks, gadgets, embellishments - just artwork, rubber and ink. The concept is exciting and I really love how you used so many of the wonderful Artistic Outpost sets to create scenery and backgrounds. You really knocked this one out of the park!

    Hugs,
    Linda
