Happiness is a Hat!


Hello, Avril here today and this week I've been mixing  stamps that you probably wouldn't normally put together, but which I think work, along with a paper layer.

For the background  I've used a paper from the Vagabond Treasures Pack.   For the next layer I stamped the  Hat's Background  in black Archival, and then distressed with Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap Distress inks.

I've stamped and fussy cut my gent from the Ice Cream Shoppe collection, along with part of one of the sentiments in the set, as the focal point.

If you get creative with your Artistic Outpost rubber stamps, we would love to see what you make, so why not share with us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page.

Have a great week,

Always Make A Total Effort

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie, here sharing a Mixed Media card designed with The Golf Clubstamp set along with ODBD Custom Dies- Pierced Circles, Circles and Pierced Rectangles (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).


The background with created by applying peeled paint, brushed corduroy and black soot distress stains onto my craft mat, spritzing with water and laying a piece of white cardstock.   Use the heat tool to dry each layer and once dried, apply picket fence distress stain to tone down the color.  

The rectangular element was created in the same way using kraft cardstock and applying peeled paint and brushed corduroy distress stain.  Once the panel was dry, repeatedly stamp the advertising stamp from The Golf Clubusing archival black ink. Trim the panel and layer onto a black cardstock rectangle die cut and embossed with the Pierced Rectangles Dies.

Use white cardstock to repeat the above steps for the background on the circular element and stamp the advertising image off once before stamping onto the cardstock. Die cut and emboss the panel with the Pierced Circles Dies and mount onto a piece of black cardstock die cut and embossed with the Circles Dies.

Heat emboss the golfer images from The Golf Club with black embossing powder onto white cardstock and the sentiment with white embossing powder onto black cardstock.

Layer the background panel onto black cardstock, add the rectangular panel and mount the circular element with the golfers and sentiment with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!  If you have a chance to create a project with your Artistic Outpost stamps, we would love for you to share it with us on Artistic Outpost Facebook page!

Bottle Cap Fun


Hello, Avril here today and for this weeks inspiration I've been playing with paper,  although there's a little bit of stamping too.

I've used 3 of the papers from the Vagabond Paper Collection for the background, making a central panel for my Paperboy.  I've also stamped and heat embossed  one of the Bottle tops from the Bottle Caps Background stamp, colouring to match the backing paper before fussy cutting.

The sentiment from  Think and Wonder  was stamped and heat set with Clear EP before being cut apart and distressed.

If you get the chance to ink up your Artistic Outpost Rubber stamps,  why not share with us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page, we would love to see what you create.

Have a great week,

You Can Never Cross The Ocean

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie, here sharing a card designed with The Captain, and Grunge Elements along with ODBD Custom Dies- Pierced Circlesand Pierced Rectangles and the ODBD Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad.


The Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad was used for the background along with the banners and additional splatters were stamped on the background with images from Grunge Elements using walnut stain distress ink.

The young boy image and sentiment from The Captain was stamped with archival black ink onto vanilla cardstock, distressed with vintage photo and tea dye distress ink using watercolor along with Grunge Elements grid and splatter images.

All were mounted onto black cardstock and the young boy image was framed as well as mounted onto a piece of black cardstock die cut and embossed with the Pierced Rectangles Dies.

The compass from The Captain was inked with archival black ink and stamped onto vanilla cardstock, die cut and embossed with the Pierced Circles Dies, distressed with tea dye and vintage photo distress ink and a copper brad was inserted into the center.

Sponge additional distress ink over all of the edges before mounting the banners and framed young boy image directly onto the background and using dimensional foam for the compass and banners.

Paris in the Spring


Hello, Avril here with my weekly inspiration and this time I've used the Eau de Parfum Collage as the background for my image.

The background was stamped with black Archival, distressed and coloured with Distress inks.

The focal image from the Paris Exposition set was again stamped with Archival and coloured with Distress inks and then to give a more aged look, spritzed with water and blotted dry.  I also stamped 'Paris' and cut to fit over  'Parfum'  on the background.

The base layer was stamped with the Music script from the Ephemera Backgrounds using Frayed Burlap DI before distressing.

Thanks for calling in and I hope you have a great week and if you feel creative and ink up your Artistic Outpost Rubber stamps, why not share what you make with us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page, we would love to see them.
