Artistic Outpost New Release for December



Hello, I'm so pleased you've called in today and I can tell you about the New Release of Artistic Outpost Stamps for December.





                                                           Christmastime






                                                                  Gloria

I've got a couple of projects to show using these gorgeous Christmas stamps which are available from Our Daily Bread Designs.


For my first project I've  used Christmastime, stamping with Flitterglu and Gilding Flakes onto navy card .  To keep the silver tones right, I covered the edged of my base card with the same flakes.  This really is a fabulous stamp and ideal for 'flat' cards to post.



Next, using one of the images from Gloria,  The background of my tag was sprayed with Tumbled Glass spray stain when it was dry I stamped the Music Script from the Ephemera Backgrounds with Versamark and heat set with Gold EP.  I also mixed some Tarnished Brass paint with Texture Paste to used through a flourish stencil.  My image was coloured and fussy cut, and I added stickles to her wings, and layered her onto a couple of  soft white feathers.


 

The rest of the Design Team have some wonderful inspiration to share with you, and that's not all ...

Not sure what Blogger is up to this morning Avril, I'm just seeing blank spaces where I know there should be photos.

Morning Avril. Like Brenda, all I have for the first two are blank images but I can see the ornament card and you pr tag which are both beautiful. The ornament card looks exquisite with the gilding flakes and I really like the flourishes at the top of the card too. They give it such a luxurious feel. Your tag is gorgeous too. Such a beautiful and sweet image. I like the colours that you've used and the feather looks fabulous. The new stamps are lovely Avril and you've really shown them at their best. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

There's a couple of images missing from your post, I would think you probably grabbed them from another blog or website, and they have since been moved or deleted? Well I can see your projects and they are beautiful! I just adore the ornaments on the card, how elegant!! Your tag is wonderful with that feather behind your image! hugs :)

I love your creations and tissue stamp set. My favorite is your tag! It's gorgeous. You make it sound so simple but it looks like it took hours.

Your card is the silver is gorgeous, I imagine in real life it's even more wonderful (as it's hard to capture the guild in photos). Your tag is also gorgeous. The new stamps are fantastic. Take care, Shirleyxx
