Artistic Outpost Release - March 2011

There are four beautiful plates being released today at Artistic Outpost!

The wonderful sets include:
  • Gatsby  features the main characters of the novel in photograph style with deco backgrounds.  
  • Flapper Fashions is a wonderful collection of "flappers" wearing their fabulous stylish outfits!
  • Huck Finn is a collection of collage and illustration images featuring Huck, paddle boats, and that friend of his Tom Sawyer.  
    Windows and Doors features some beautiful background and focal images along with lovely sentiments.
All of the new stamp sets are available both as unmounted red rubber sheets for $14.00 or pre-cut and mounted on EZMount cling foam for $22.99.

Here are some fun projects using the new sets:

The first card is from the wonderful Flappers Fashions. I selected one of the beautiful flapper images and framed her with some beautiful Webster's Pages papers and the sentiment and images from the Paris Exposition plate.

My second card uses the striking image from the Gatsby plate. He was so handsome and elegant I immediately thought of a wedding card.  I created a card that could be used as a thank you card for a groomsman in a wedding or even a card for a groom. The sentiment is from the Song Birds plate and the flourish in the background is from the Flappers Fashions plate.

The boys from the Huck Finn plate are so fun and inspired a card exploring and I could just see them gazing out across the water at the steamboats.

My final card is a triptych using the wonderful Windows and Doors Plate.

I stamped the image on acetate and embossed using gold embossing powder. Hand cut out the outside and the windows. I then stamped the sentiment on white cardstock. The frames were linked using jump rings. The birds are from the Song Birds plate.

The design team has created some really fantastic projects and cards which you can go see in the Artistic Outpost Gallery. The design team is also sharing wonderful projects on their blogs:  

*Lisa Somerville *Gerrie Johnnic *Lynn Stevens *Barbara Washington *Connie Paxman *Stephanie Severin*Judy Hayes* Louise Granlund
