Artistic Outpost New Release Time!

Wow! We have 2 new releases to share with you this month and the Artistic Outpost Design Team has been busy making new ART! Be sure to check out the other designers at the bottom of this post for great new samples.

 My first design is using a stamp from the new set Springtime, (the kids);  and then I added stamps from Kudu Kafe, (the Kafe);  The Outpost, (part of the tree);  and Sleigh Ride, (pine trees).  Can you believe how versatile these stamps are, wow!  Check out the flag on top of the Kafe....that is from the Paper Boy set.



The backdrop was created with distress inks and an extra fine marker.

My next card is from the Wander and Dream set, which has a Southwest appeal.  It's pretty CAS, but I love how it turned out in those bright colors.

Here are the two newest Artistic Outpost stamp sets:

Your cards are great! I like how you used so many of them in the first card. The colors in the second card very pretty! Great job! Great stamps!

Love the background used on the Wander & Dream card. Gives me the thought of Fishnet stockings, of the ladies of the Old West. Also you used Puple hues and Purple is a GREAT color.

Terry said...

Oh aren't you clever with the flag from the PB set and those hills look fabulous! Love the kids sitting there ready to play! Great Southwestern vibe and love how you layered this all up! Two great cards from the NR! Hugs!

Beautiful cards ♥♥

Your backgrounds compliment the stamps perfectly ♥

Shari Trumbull said...

Gerrie!! Wonderful Cards!! OMG--Look at all of the fun AO images you've incorporated in your Springtime card!! LOVE IT!! Are those kids waiting for Kudzu Kafe to open for some ice cream? Maybe a soda float? :) :)
Completely LOVE your SW card!! I don't know what I like more--that patterned background, or your polka dotted cactus! Those nubbies make that cactus look real!! I can definitely see myself copying your embossing on the cactus!! :) So clever :)
Just wonderful cards for today's AO NR blog hop, Gerrie!! XOXO-Shari

Gerrie, your cards are stunning! The colors are so vibrant and life- like. I LOVE them!

Beth said...

girlfriend these are both beautiful cards the first one you have create such a wonderful scene and is my favorite because it reminds me of my child hood and spend time at my grandparents who by the way had 16 kids and one the same age as me.

Lisa Somerville said...

Loved your cards for the release! Wonderful way to incorporate so many AO sets to create the scene for the sweet children, the mountains really brought all the elements together! Perfect papers for the "Southwest" feel for the Wander and Dream set!

Coco said...

Two very beautiful cards Gerry in different styles... My favourite is the second one I think (even if more C&S indeed), the background and colours form a gorgeous set! Hugs, Coco xx

Kay Wallace said...

Gerrie, both projects are great, but the first one just tugs at my heart! Love the work you are doing here!

Polly said...
