Here we go ... 2 new releases from Artistic Outpost! Chalk it Up and Chalk Board Wisdom. This set of sayings has to be my favorite. So easy to use with so many projects, cards or scrapbooks. In the set of frames, I luv the large frame...you can stamp it, distress it even more, or emboss. The frames go with so many of our stamp sets.
I choose this first saying, because of the first 3 words..."do not CONFORM". That about says it all about me. I hate to conform to rules and regulations and dislike doing what everyone else is doing or wear what everyone else is wearing....gee...does that sound like me? YUP! I just like to be ME. lol For the background, I chose a very colorful paper that looks like it's covered in various washi tapes. I then choose to stencil over that paper, using a stencil from Just a Trace, stencil mini, Palazzo. I choose to use the picked raspberry Distress ink to use thru the stencil. I love how the paper and the stencil go together.
My next card features the large frame from the Chalk it up set. I used an embossing folder on the frame after coloring with black ink, then white chalk. The first thing I thought of when choosing this frame was how well it will work with all our stamps, then I thought Halloween, and then this is what I choose.
The gentlemen from the London set was stamped on mirror card stock using Stazon ink. This was extremely hard to photograph, I think I tried 6 photos before I got one that didn't have my face or fingers in it! I created the saying with my label maker. Kind of reminds me of the picture on the wall, where the eyes follow you no matter where you stand in a room!
Here are the new sets.........
