Two New Artistic Outpost Stamp Sheets

Exciting news -- Artistic Outpost Stamps is releasing two new stamp sheets today.

Neverland features images from the fairytale land that is home to Peter Pan. The Darling children are also featured with a lovely ATC sized collage of Wendy and a perfect flying illustration of John and Michael. Think of the scenes you create with these adorable kiddos including an intense conversation between Wendy and Peter. Don't ever grow up!!!

I had so much fun working with these stamps. For my card I brayered my colors on the cardstock using a large circle to make the moon. Then I used a mortise mask to brayer the moon. I stamped John and Michael flying over the stamped buildings. The tree tops were part of the tree stamp from The Outpost.

Haunted Halloween is a Victorian inspired collection with a vintage witch illustration, a cane-swinging dapper skeleton, and a haunted home that could be used without the scary subtext. Other collage images include a bat border collage and sentiments.

On my card I used the haunted house and stamped the flying bats in the corner. The background was created with Glimmer Mists which were pulled and blended with a paper towel. (Pulled Glimmers from Technique Junkies). I think it created a kind of eerie look to the scene. The background paper is from Graphics 45. These Halloween images are so much fun to use. Don't you think that the skeleton is a handsome fellow? Haunted Halloween will also coordinate really well with the other Artistic Outpost stamp set Vintage Halloween.

Both of my cards are embellished with wonderful vintage lace or ribbon. There is a new department at Artistic Outpost called Outpost Attic Findings. Currently some truly vintage style finding kits are being featured that include beautiful ribbons and trims. In these kits, you will receive 1.5 yards of each color of hand dyed rayon vintage style seam binding as well as 2 yards each of the vintage style crocheted trim. Also included are a heaping scoop of vintage mother of pearl buttons perfect for embellishing your prized project. Kits retail for $6.99.

Each of the other design team members will be featuring their artwork using these new sets of stamps. Why don't you visit each of their blogs and see the wonderful things they have created.
