A Little Bit of This and That - Artistic Outpost April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team April Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost stamp sets.  This month, the Designers are sharing projects they created using stamp found in the "This and That" stamp category on the Artistic Outpost website.

I'm always in need of masculine cards, so today I'm sharing a card created with the Artistic Outpost Paperboy, Hat's Off, Ephemera Backgrounds and Chalkboard Wisdom stamp sets.


To create the collage background, I stamped the image from Hats Off, masked with Eclipse Tape then stamped the script from the Paperboy stamp set.  I added the journal text from Ephemera Backgrounds to the pattern paper panel then die cut using a fishtail die.  Using the omitting technique I stamped the sentiment from one of the Chalkboard Wisdom sentiments.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Paperboy, Chalkboard Wisdom, Hat's Off, Ephemera Backgrounds
Ink - Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Black,Vanilla, Kraft

April Showers


It looks like Mother Nature is finally ushering in Spring, the weather is warming up and the April Showers are bringing May flowers!

Today, I'm sharing two 3D projects created with stamps and custom dies from Our Daily Bread Designs, along with some additional ODBD dies, stamps and pattern paper.

My first project is a cute little box to fill with goodies to give to someone who is feeling under the weather.  I used the omitting technique to stamp the sentiment on White card stock, then die cut the panel using one of the dies from the Layered Lacey Squares die set, then trimmed the panel so that I could layer it onto the same die that was die cut from Espresso card stock.  The beautiful papers are from the Shabby Rose paper collection.  To embellish the box, I die cut the largest die from the Lacey Layered Squares set and adhered it to the box lid, added a few stamped butterflies using the Hand Stamped By - Butterfly Mini, some foliage, Zva Creative gems and seam binding.



My next project is a cute little flower pot that also uses the ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection and April Showers stamp set.  My flower pot holds a few seed packages.



The sentiment from the April Showers stamp set is stamped in Espresso on White card stock, die cut with Spellbinders Petite Ovals and layered onto an Espresso panel that was die cut using the Antique Labels and Borders die.  To embellish, I added foliage, stamped butterflies, a few tools using the Apron and Tools Die and seam binding.

ODBD Products:

Both the box and flower pot were cut from the ODBD Shabby Rose paper collection (the box also uses Espresso card stock), using the Silhouette and SVG Cuts Mom's Garden Gifts SVG Kit.  I scaled both patterns to fit the 6" x 6" paper collection.
Some of the other ODBD Designers are also sharing projects today using the ODBD April Release. For more inspiration you can see their projects on the ODBD Blog or visit their blog links below:
