Artistic Outpost September Release - Hayride, Chalk Talk Typography

This month Artistic Outpost is releasing two stamp sets!  These sets can be used on their own, and also look wonderful when combined with many of the other plates Artistic Outpost has to offer!

My card features the sweet boy and pumpkin images from the Hayride plate.

The pumpkins are stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, then masked with Eclipse Tape.  I used a SAMJ to find placement for the boy, stamping him in Black Archival.  The images are colored with STAEDTLER Ergo Soft Watercolor Pencils, blending with Gamsol.  The panel was then sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, and the panel cut so the bottom pumpkin is outside the panel.

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Hayride
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Black, Pumpkin, Vanilla
Other - Bo Bunny pattern paper, Ink Blending Tool, Gamsol, Nibs, Eclipse Tape, SAMG, STAEDTLER Egro Soft Watercolor Pencils

Here's a look at all the images on the Hayride plate, this plate features a  bushel basket of apples, pumpkins, and some adorable children images done in the Artistic Outpost style that we all know and love! The tractor and elements from this set are designed and sized to work perfectly together or alone

Using the Christmas Chalk stamp set, I created an easy to mass produce card, by using the White Embossing the frame, sentiment and reindeer onto Black card stock.

After the panel was embossed, I smeared on some Picket Fence Distress Ink for a more realistic Chalkboard feel.  The large White background panel is embossed using the Alterations Snowflake folder.  To embellish I added some Red Seam Binding and a few Zva Creative Crystal Gems to the reindeer.

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Christmas Chalk
Ink - Versamark
Card Stock - Black, White
Other - White Embossing Folder, Alterations Snowflake Folder, Big Shot, Red Seam Binding, Zva Creative Crystal Gems

The Christmas Chalk  plate features bold images with creative typography.  These holiday sentiments work great on their own and can also be combined with our Chalk it Up collection of frames and collage elements, to create some wonderful cards, tags and home decor projects!

Your Boy with Pumpkins card is wonderful but I really love the Chalkboard Christmas one - it totally has that old time chalkboard feel to it.

Have a great weekend!
