Artistic Outpost March Release and Special

Here at Artistic Outpost, we are celebrating SPRING!

It's been one of those wet and cold winters. We're ready to craft in the sunshine.  Our Ott lites are wonderful, but there is nothing like natural sunlight coming through the window shining on your work table...just makes us feel good.

When putting together a stamp collection, we draw on inspirations from all around:  artwork, antique photos, movies, and books.  You'll definitely see the literary references in our newest releases.  

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is my favorite book of all time.  I won't get into a diatribe of why, because frankly, it would bore you all.  However, I know you will love the stamps inspired by the "jazz age". We have two NEW half sheet collections that you are going to think are the "bee's knees".

First we have the eponymous titled Gatsby which features our version of the main characters in photograph style with deco backgrounds.  Because of my love of "Scott", there is also a stamp featuring this giant with one of his most famous lines.

Flapper Fashions is just that a wonderful collection of "flappers".  You will find the size of these dames are PERFECT for card making and mixed media projects.  Just check out how our design team has used these lovely ladies with our other sets.

We also pay tribute this release to another literary great, Mark Twain.  His wit is still inspiring, and his tales from "life on the Mississippi" are definitely worth celebrating.  We pay homage to Samuel Clemens this release with Huck Finn.  A collection of collage and illustration images featuring Huck, paddle boats, and that friend of his Tom Sawyer.  

Our fourth release this spring, is all about light and new beginnings. What doors will you open this spring?  In what window will the sun shine the brightest?  Windows and Doors features background and focal images that capture those questions. What is behind that garden gate?  Get inspired and tell us.

All of our new stamp sets are available both as unmounted red rubber sheets for $14.00 or pre-cut and mounted on EZMount cling foam for $22.99.

Through April 15th, when you purchase all four of these sets, we will give you a 15% discount.  Please note you must purchase all four.  Simply use the code:  GATSBY during check out.

I just ordered my first ever Artistic Outpost stamp set. How in the world have I missed these wonderful designs! I ordered Huck Finn, and can't wait to start using it. I have loads of guys to scrap and make card for. This set will be priceless!
