Roses In Paris

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie here, sharing a quick Mixed Media card designed with the February 2017 release Roses in Paris background stamp along with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies (all available at Our Daily Bread Designs).


To create this card, I stamped the Roses in Paris background stamp with embossing ink onto a piece of white card stock and heat embossed the image with black embossing powder.

I used distress inks and water-based markers to watercolor the image and fussy-cut around the edge.

I used the largest die from the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies to die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock, layered with black cardstock and mounted the entire panel onto the white card base.

I added the fussy cut Roses In Paris image and used a white paint pen to add highlights to the lamp and flowers.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by! If you have chance to create a project of your own using any of your Artistic Outpost stamps, don’t forget, we would love it if you would share your artwork with us on Artistic Outpost Facebook page!

Eiffel Collage!

Happy Friday to all of you! Did you see the incredible NEW RELEASE with so much Paris goodness? Well if you missed it, just click the link above to see Eau De Parfume, Eiffel Collage and Roses in Paris!
Today I am sharing a card using the Eiffel Collage and what a beautiful background stamp it is. I first stamped card stock using VersaMark and clear embossed. Next I inked over the entire surface with Distress Black Soot, ironed off the embossed ink.
I did stamp the image a second time using Archival Black, heat set and then watered colored the images. I did mask off the doves to keep them nice and clean. The stamps were stamped in Archival Red Geranium and Sky Blue. All were fussy cut and adhered with gel medium.
Have a most wonderful weekend and thank you for visiting today!

Cross the Ocean


Hello, Avril here today and I'm showcasing a card made with images from The Captain set of stamps.

My background was stenciled using Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress inks, then repeatedly stamped and masked with the ledger stamp from Ephemera Backgrounds .

The main image from The Captain was stamped with Black Archival and coloured with distress inks. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with Clear EP.

An assortment of gears from the Steampunk Gears Dies were cut with foil card and then coloured with Alcohol inks.

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

Boundless Sea Dreams

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie here, sharing another Mixed Media card designed with the January 2017 Artistic Outpost Release stamp set, The Captain and the new Steampunk Gears DiesVagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad along with the previously released stamp sets, Grunge Elements and Ephemera Backgrounds (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).


To create this card, I stamped the youth image from AO The Captain stamp set with archival black ink onto vanilla cardstock, used distress inks to watercolor for an “antique” finish and matted onto black cardstock.

The background was created with the Ephemera Backgrounds ledger stamp along with the large splatter stamp from Grunge Elements and the compass and anchor from The Captain.

Two patterns from the Vagabond Treasures Collection Paper Pad were used to create the vertical and horizontal elements of the design and the sentiment is from The Captain stamp set.

All the panels were layered onto black cardstock and a few of the gears were added from the Steampunk Gears Dies to finish off the card.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by! I really enjoy creating cards with a vintage style, there is something therapeutic to me when I get to watercolor and distress- lol!

Sailor Boy

Hello, Avril here today with a tag using products from the Artistic Outpost January Release.

I started by covering a manila tag with 2 of the papers from the Vagabond Treasures pack.  My sailor boy image from The Captain was stamped with Potting Soil Archival, then lightly distressed around the edges with Antique Linen DI and layered onto some corrugated card before attaching to the tag.  I used paper from the Vagabond Treasures to stamp the sentiment with Copper pigment ink and heat set with Copper EP

The Gears were cut from foil card.  I covered them with Aquamarine Treasure Gold before using copper pigment ink and Embossing Powder, lightly brushing off some of the powder in places before heat setting to create that rusty look.

This is such a versatile stamp plate and I really enjoy using it.  What's your favorite stamp plate?
We'd love to see what you create with it, so why not share with us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page.

Thanks for calling in and I hope you have a great week.

The Captain

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie here, sharing another Mixed Media card designed with the Artistic Outpost  stamp set, The CaptainSteampunk Gears Dies, Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad along with the Grunge Elements stamp set and ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).


To create this card, I stamped the ship image from The Captain stamp set with archival black ink onto vanilla cardstock and used neutral distress inks to watercolor for an “antique” finish.  I also used a diluted white acrylic paint with the coffee stain image from Grunge Elements to add more distressing before die cutting the panel with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies.

The sentiment was also stamped and “antiqued” before die cutting with a smaller frame from the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies.

The strip of Vagabond Treasures Collection Paper was sanded to give it a bit more of an aged appearance and I die cut and embossed the various gears from dark brown card stock using the Steampunk Gears Dies. 

Once I layered the panels onto dark brown cardstock, I added the gear die cuts with brads, a torn scrap piece of the Vagabond Treasures Collection paper to the lower left corner as well as the sentiment along with the fussy-cut The Captain image using dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by! I had fun creating this vintage style card and if you have chance to create a project of your own using any of your Artistic Outpost stamps, we would love it if you would share your artwork with us on Artistic Outpost Facebook page!

The Captain of the Ship


Hello, Avril here today and I'm sharing a card made with the newly released Artistic Outpost stamps
The Captain.

I've used the Ledger sheet from Ephemera Backgrounds on my base card, this was repeatedly stamped, masked and stamped with Versamark before heat embossing with White EP and then inking with Blueprint sketch Distress ink.

I built up the layers with a piece of embossed cardstock and the Postcard stamp, again from Ephemera Backgrounds, making sure the 'Ocean Grove' postmark was showing.

My Captain and his ship were stamped onto white card with Black Archival.  Both were coloured with DIs and layered onto some muslin.

The sentiment and the Anchor were stamped in black and heat set.

I hope I've inspired you to ink up your Artistic Outpost stamps and get creative , if so we would love to see what you make, so why not visit our Artistic Outpost Facebook page and link up your artwork.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have a great week.

Boundless as the Sea

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie here, sharing a Mixed Media card designed with the brand new Artistic Outpost  (AO) stamp set, The Captain and the new AO Steampunk Gears Dies, AO Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad along with the previously released AO Ephemera Backgrounds stamp set and ODBD Circles Dies and Pierced Circles Dies (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).



To create this card, I die cut an opening in the AO Vagabond Treasures Collection paper for the “porthole” using ODBD Circles Dies and added additional texture to the background with the ledger stamp from the AO Ephemera Backgrounds stamp set as well as crackle texture paste using a stencil and palette knife.

To finish off the porthole, I die cut and embossed dark brown cardstock with the ODBD Pierced Circles Dies and applied brass and copper distress stain over the paper to create a metallic appearance.

I stamped the ship image from the AO The Captain stamp set with archival black ink and heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder before adding the watercolor with distress inks.  I added the compass image from AO The Captain stamp set in the corner of the panel and lightly stamped the AO Ephemera Backgrounds ledger stamp to further distress the paper.

Once the texture paste had dried, I mounted the stamped ship image behind the die cut circle, distressed the edges of the panel and mounted the entire panel onto a piece of vanilla cardstock, distressing the edges again.

I added the die cut layered circles over the “porthole” opening of the ship and added antique brass brads around the circle.

I finished off the card by adhering the die cuts from dark brown paper using the AO Steampunk Gears Dies with brads (adding with brass and copper distress stain to the gears to mimic metal) and the sentiment from the AO The Captain stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by! I had fun creating this Mixed Media card, and if you have time to relax and create a project using any of your Artistic Outpost stamps, we would love it if you would share your artwork with us on Artistic Outpost Facebook page!

To create this card, I first stamped the ship captain image from the AO The Captain stamp set with archival black ink onto vanilla cardstock, fussy-cut and layered the image onto black cardstock for additional thickness
.
The background is one of the patterns from the AO Vagabond Treasures Collection  6x6 Paper Pad, trimmed and mounted onto vanilla cardstock before adding the knotted hemp twine along the printed banner image.

I die cut and embossed the different gears from the AO Steampunk Gears Dies and added some of them to the card front with antique brass brads before mounting the entire panel onto the dark brown card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the AO The Captain stamp set onto vanilla cardstock with archival black ink.  I added the distressing using distress inks with the compass image from the AO The Captain stamp set and splatter stamp from the AO Grunge Elements stamp set.  After distressing, I die cut and embossed the panel with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies.

I mounted the sentiment onto dark brown cardstock and added the die/embossed gear with a brad before mounting the sentiment and the captain image onto the card front with dimensional foam.

The Captain

Thank you for visiting on this wonderful Friday and today I would love to share with you a masculine tag using The Captain and Vagabond Treasures Paper from the new release earlier this month.
Sometimes a great designer paper can really work in our favor to create a background with interest, but little effort as is the case here! All of the images from The Captain were stamped on the Vagabond Treasures Paper in Black Archival, shaded in Distress Ground Espresso and then backed using a neutral color also shaded. I did distress some of the edges as well. The actually black tag background was bleach stamped with compass and anchor. I added a little bottle of seashell treasures to finish.

Enjoy the weekend!

The Sailor

Hello, Avril here today and I'm sharing a card made with the Artistic Outpost January New Release stamp set The Captain.

I started by cutting a tag from corrugated card and tearing away some of the outer layer.  This was then roughly dry brushed with Gesso in places, before randomly stamping and heat embossing the compass (only one ended up showing - in the top lefthand corner)

I used Potting Soil Archival ink and stamped the ledger background from the Ephemera Backgrounds, and then tore and distressed the edges.   I also used the ledger stamp on the background of the card base.

My main image was stamped with Potting soil, distressed with Antique linen and Vintage Photo and layered onto a piece of inked and distressed card.

After building up the layers and  tucking in a piece of embossed card, I added some fussy cut elements from the Vagabond Treasures paper pack,  stamped the Telegraph heading from Ephemera Backgrounds, and also the anchor from The Captain.  All supplies are available from Our Daily Bread Designs

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

Thanks for your visit today, have a great week,

My Bounty is as Boundless as the Sea

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie here, sharing a nautical Mixed Media card designed with the January 2017 Release Artistic Outpost  (AO) stamp set, The Captain and the AO Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad along with previously released AO Grunge Elements stamp set, ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies and ODBD Rectangles Dies (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).

I love the images in the new AO stamp set, The Captain as well as the AO Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper Pad- I think they are perfect for so many occasions!


To create this card, I first stamped the ship image from the AO The Captain stamp set with archival black ink onto vanilla cardstock, used distress inks to water color the image and also added a bit of distressing with the large splatter stamp from AO Grunge Elements.

I added the compass image from AO The Captain with distress ink in the corner and distressed the edges of the panel before mounting onto a rectangle of espresso cardstock die cut and embossed with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies.


To create the base of the card, I die cut and embossed a piece of vanilla cardstock with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies, mounted onto the espresso card front and added the piece of AO Vagabond Treasures Collection 6x6 Paper (die cut and embossed with the ODBD Rectangles Dies).

I mounted the stamped ship panel along with the two banners (one from a scrap piece of a AO Vagabond Treasures Collection rectangle and the other one from vanilla cardstock stamped with the anchor and compass from AO The Captain along with distressing from the AO Grunge Elements splatter image) onto the card front and added the knotted hemp twine.

I added the stamped, layered sentiment from AO The Captain stamp set along with the knotted hemp twine and spiral clip with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

I hope I have inspired you with this fun Mixed Media card, and if you have time to relax and create a project using your Artistic Outpost stamps, we would love it if you would share your artwork with us on Artistic Outpost Facebook page!

The Courage

Happy Friday and Happy New Release for January 2017! If you missed the Blog Hop, click HERE to see all the fabulous design team artwork using "The Captain" stamps, "Steampunk Gears" die set and "Vagabond Treasures" paper collection.
My card using all three of the New Release items, was such a fun project. I arranged the various Steampunk Gears on a piece of black card stock, wrinkled up the paper and then inked the die cuts and paper with Opalite Golden Mist ink. This was then toned done with Distress Ground Espresso. The treated black card stock was then layered over the Vagabond Treasures Paper and the gears placed in a random order.
The young boy so full of courage from The Captain stamp collection was stamped in Archival Black and inked with Distress Antique Linen and Salty Ocean, fussy cut along with the sentiment that was cut apart. I added a few metal gears to finish. This stamp collection works out so great for the young or older men when we so need that masculine card!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by today!
