Artistic Outpost October Release and Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost October New Release and Blog Hop!  This month, Artistic Outpost is releasing three stamp sets, click here to see the new releases! Keep reading below to see how you can win a $15 Artistic Outpost Gift Certificate!

Today, I'm sharing two cards, one using the new Go Team stamp set and the other uses images from the new Toy Emporium stamp set along with one of my favorite older AO sets, Sleigh Ride.  Both cards also use paper collections and Custom Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs (see supply list below).  Before I share the details on how I created my cards, I wanted to let you know that you can now order your AO products from the ODBD Website, that way you can save on shipping if you are also ordering products from ODBD and NCC!



Using images from the Go Team stamp set, I stamped the Stadium on scraps of the ODBD Patriotic Paper Collection, then colored the image with STAEDTLER Watercolor Pencils.  The football player from this same set is stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, then colored with STAEDTLER Watercolor Pencils and popped up on dimensionals.  I used a SAMJ to add the sentiment to the scrap of paper.

The sweet vintage girl is from the Toy Emporium stamp set.  To create the collage, I stamped the trees from the Sleigh Ride set in Olive, then die cut the panel using Our Daily Bread Designs Stitched Ovals Dies.  The hills were added using scraps that I die cut using the Leafy Edged Borders Die.  The girl is stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, colored with STAEDTLER Watercolor Pencils, cut out and adhered over the stamped trees.  I layered this panel on a Raspberry panel that was die cut using the Ovals Die, then layered onto the stamped ATC panel from the Toy Emporium stamp set.  All pattern paper is from the ODBD Christmas 2015 Paper Collection.

Both of your creations are very well done. I was trying to figure out where you used the ODBD Leafy edged border? There are so many things to look at on both cards, but I couldn't find it. The new stamps are great and your compositions are just outstanding. You worked so many textures in with the colors and the prints. TFS

Wow, I love your cards! I've always leaned to the vintage women but I really love the football set. Great set for manly cards!

Your cards are beautiful, Lisa! I love the rich colors you use which goes so well with the themes.

Terry said...

Lisa, you always work wonders with layers of paper and I just adore how you have both the little football player and Christmas girl taking front stage! Two absolute beauties!
