Artistic Outpost May Release Special

I'm excited to share with you the newest rubber stamp collections from Artistic Outpost:  Beyond the Sea, Bloom and Grow, and Country Life.  I just loved mixing the images from this release to create my projects! Bloom and Grow has the perfect seed frame that you can use with so many of Artistic Outpost's stamps, I think I used it on almost all the samples I created for this release!


For a limited time, you can enjoy all three collections together for a special price.  From now until June 4th, purchase all three sets together for $36, that’s a savings of 15%.  Simply use coupon code:  SUMMER2010 at check-out.
I showed my DH all the lovely creations I created for this release and asked him to pick his favorite from each plate for my blog post today. 

Beyond the Sea Features interchangeable main images including the perfect lighthouse, alluring couple, and longing clam digger. Perfect for cards, shadow boxes, and scrapbooking.

My first card uses the Lighthouse from Beyond the Sea, and the Seed Packet from Bloom and Grow.

 
I started out by stamping the Lighthouse, then masking it with Eclipse Tape, and added the Bloom and Grow Seed Packet, doing a little omitting, so not to get the words.  The image is colored using the Spectrum Roll Technique, then I highlighted the colors with Distress Inks.  The shells are stamped in Olive on the Olive Panel.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Bloom and Grow, Beyond the Sea
Ink - Black, Pumpkin Spectrum Roll, Distress Inks Brushed Corduroy, Crushed Olive
Card Stock - Black, White, Olive, Pumpkin
Other - Brayer, Basic Grey Sugar Rush, Cutter Kit, Glimmer Mist
Bloom and Grow and Country Life represents two halves of one whole.  Bloom and Grow features more feminine elements while  Country Life includes a little more fun “boy” imagery including the cutest little pig, chickens, and little boy. 
On this card I used images from Bloom and Grow


See I told you I just LOVE this frame!  The images from the sets fit perfectly inside the frame.  On this card, I paper pieced her dress with some Cosmo Cricket papers, added a little bit of Marker Watercoloring and some Flower Soft.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Bloom and Grow
Ink - Black, Markers, Soft Suede
Card Stock - Black, Olive, Watercolor
Other - Cosmo Cricket Paper, H20 Brush, Flower Soft, Sponge Dauber

This card also features the frame from Bloom and Grow and images from Country Life.

Again, a little bit of Masking and some Marker Watercoloring to add color.  Don't you just *love* that little pig!
