New Arrivals from Artistic Outpost

I'm excited to be sharing some of my creations using the newest releases from Artistic Outpost!  From Tonic to Halloween to Frosty and Friends, there's a little bit of something for everyone with this release!  These new collections are available in both unmounted rubber sheets as well as *mounted/pre-trimmed on EZMount cling foam. 



Apothecary: Before the invention of the drive-thru Walgreens®, the apothecary was not just a dispenser of medicines, but also a mix-ologist of tonics, keeper of secrets, and giver of advice. (Projects using this set will be posted soon here on my blog)

Halloween Treats:  This set is wonderful for creating Halloween Treats, or perfect to mix with other Artistic Outpost Halloween collections as well as the new Apothecary plate!
I used some of the images from the Halloween Treats plate to create a Test Tube Treat Holder. The images are stamped in Black on Vanilla Card stock, to add color to the Vanilla panels I used the Watercolor Distress Technique, using Rangers Distress Stains, then added a bit of color to the images.  For the Labels, I stamped the images on Vinyl using Ranger Black Archival Ink, heat set, then added Distress Stain and heated again.  Cut out and apply to Test Tubes. (Test Tube Patterns available on my sidebar)
Here's a view with the Test Tubes removed




Frosty & Friends: This collection features images from Artistic Outpost's own collection of vintage ephemera.

For this project I stamped the image using Ranger Black Archival on an Ornament Blank (from Hobby Lobby), heat set, then painted with Creative Inspirations Paints.  Once dry, I sponged on Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink and added Gold Krylon Marker to the edges.

For added inspiration, be sure to stop by the other Design Team members blogs:

Gerrie Johnnic * Judy Hayes * Lynn Stevens * Barbara Washington * Stephanie Severin * Suzanne Czosek * Louise Granlund

*Please note that due to the high volume during new releases, that “mounted” stamp collections may take 10 days to ship.

Thanks for stopping by!
