Don't Drive too Fast!


Hello, Avril here with my weekly inspiration and I'm continuing on the theme of masculine cards, which before discovering Artistic Outpost rubber stamps, I must admit I did find difficult.

This week I've used an image from Diesel Punk along with one of the quotes, both were stamped in Potting Soil Archival and the quote cut apart.

I've used a paper from the Vagabond Treasures Paper Collection and teamed it with burlap and embellished with some die cut gears from the Steampunk Gears Die Set

I hope I've inspired you to ink up your Artistic Outpost stamps and if so, we would love to see  what you create, so why not share with us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page.

Have a great week,

Why Fit In


Hello,  Avril here today with more masculine inspiration for you, this time I'm using stamps from the Paperboy set.

I started with a piece of embossed cardstock which was coloured with Distress crayons. I stamped the background script with White Colourbox ink and sprinkled White EP and then brushed most of it off for a worn look.  My main image was stamped with Black Archival onto white card and adhered to the card with foam pads, using a piece of mesh to ground the image.

The sentiment is from Think and Wonder, stamped and cut apart.

I hope I've inspired you to ink up your Artistic Outpost rubber stamps and if so, we would love you to show us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page.

Have a lovely week,

Cocoa Labels


Hello, Avril here today with more masculine inspiration for you, and this time I'm using an image from the Think and Wonder plate.

I stamped the image with Black Archival onto Kraft card and again onto a mop up piece of card, picking out a pale area and fussy cut the boy, this was then layered over the Kraft image.

I stamped a couple of small tags with various parts of the script from the same image using Potting Soil Archival and  again distressed the edges.  The large kraft tag was stamped with the ledger stamp from the Ephemera Backgrounds.

The layers were assembled onto a piece of textured card that was dipped into Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink.

I hope I've encouraged you to create with your Artistic Outpost rubber stamps and if so, we would love to see what you make, so why not show us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page.

Have a great week,

Anyone for Coffee?


Hello Avril here today and this week I'm showcasing these wonderful gents from Generation Redux.

I've stamped the main image in Potting Soil Archival and distressed the edges  before shading with Antique Linen DI and layering onto dark brown card. The torn ledger sheet from Ephemera Backgrounds was also stamped with Archival ink.  For contrast, the coffee label was stamped with Vintage photo DI onto cream card.

Along with a piece of burlap, my layers were assembled onto one of the papers from  the Vagabond Treasures Paper Collection.

I hope I've inspired to ink up your Artistic Outpost rubber stamps and if so, we would love you to share with us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page.

Thanks for visiting and have a great week.

Thinking of Paris


Hello,  and thanks for calling in,  and today I'm using the Roses in Paris background stamp for the base of my card.  This was coloured with Distress inks and Markers before attaching to a navy card base.

My image is from the Think and Wonder set of stamps, coloured with chalks for a softer look before attaching to a navy layer and then attaching over the background.

A quick and simple card that's nice and flat for the mail.
