Artistic Outpost November Release

I am so excited as today I get to share the newest plates from Artistic Outpost.   There are two new plates: Cowgirl Strength and Auld Lang Syne

Auld Lang Syne is a collection of turn of early twentieth century New Year related images.  Nine bold images make up this collection and were designed to complement the Picture Star rubber stamps featuring images from the same era.
Cowgirl Strength is all about girl power and knowing her own strength. Ten unique images complete this collection including bandanna trim and stitching as well as three fierce and gorgeous cowgirls. 
The cowgirls and sentiments are all irresistible.  I had a hard time picking which gal to stamp up first.  I finally decided on Annie Oakley (my nickname for her)


I paired or treyed her up with with a set of aces.  I smeared the card with a touch of acrylic paint to give a surface to stamp the image on.  I added a hint of color to the image using STAEDTLER karat Aquarell watercolor pencils.

I had this fantastic denim pattern paper which I edged with the stitching stamp.  I added a few stars, twine and burlap for texture.  Any of the sentiments would have been perfect with the image.


The Auld Lang Syne plate had me singing snippets of the song while creating Holiday Decor and cards:


This started with stars cut from shimmery pattern paper and the elegant lady and gentlemen stamped and colored in coordinating colors.  I added a touch of glamour in the background with some holiday picks.  I added this to the stick from the holiday picks to give me a decoration that can be set in a vase with flowers or in centerpiece arrangement.

Hop along and see the fantastic creations from the rest of the Design Team:


Thanks for stopping by!
