Artistic Outpost October New Release!

How exciting is this NEW RELEASE from Artistic Outpost for October??? I am so happy that you have stopped by today, because the design team has some really inspirational art to share with you and three random winners will have a chance to win a $15 AO Gift Certificate just by visiting and commenting on all the design team blogs. You have until October 9, 2015 at 10:00 PM CDT and winners will be announced on October 10, 2015. Also you can now order AO products as well as NCC and ODBD all from Our Daily Bread Designs website to save shipping!
For my first project using "Vintage Fashion," I altered a cigar box. After I applied two coats of gesso, DecoArts Traditions Raw Sienna and Raw Umber were slip slapped on with a double loaded paint brush. While in the drying process, I cut a piece of card stock leaving some of the edge to show and covered with Distress Inks, embossed the panel using a buttons folder from Darice and highlighted the raised areas with Frayed Burlap and then shaded with Walnut Stain and Black Soot. Next I finished the surface of the cigar box by sponging on the same paints and some Delta Dresden Flesh.
The images were stamped in Coffee Archival and fussy cut, added some buttons along with other fashion elements and a bobbin for a little handled.
The sides were finished with some zipper trim with a little stamping on it and ODBD Beautiful Borders Trim.
A little McCall's magic for the box lining and some added little spool feet and all was done.

Now onto my second project for the New Release, "Go Team."
The fact that I love Green Bay, Wisconsin and am a Packers fan when I returned home from a visit there and saw this new release, it was like a sign! I obviously went with the colors of the Green Bay Packers for this and also used a souvenir beer mat from Titletown Brewery Company, making it a bit more personal! Using a sheet of ODBD Winter Collection paper, I stamped the trophies in Coffee Archival and the Footballs in Tree Branch
The young football player and sentiment were stamped in Coffee Archival. I cut the oval from ODBD Stitched Ovals from green paper and and threaded with gold. The banners were stamped in Olive Archival and inked over in Mustard Seed.


Thank you for visiting today and I hope you have enjoyed this New Release as much as I did!

WOW! Great stamps, texture, composition and adding the personal touch to each creation makes it all the more special. I love what you did on both projects. You are very creative. The use of the old patterns for the box lining was just the perfect touch. TFS

Fantastic looking stamps Terry and I just adore both of your projects!! I love your creative use of the different images and how you put them together, so clever! Beautiful background colouring too!

Such a beautiful new release and you have used it so well on your cigar box, I just love how you used the old pattern for the inside too - so clever and a wonderful transformation! The little footballer is a delight - how fortuitous that AO brought out a stamp set that was just made for you (well in my mind anyway - lol). Love how you used it! Hugs, Anne xx

These are great new stamp sets and your interpretation of them is awesome! I totally love the vintage sewing box. Love the distress color combinations. The McCalls pattern in the interior of
the box is such a cute idea, too! And while I am. It a huge Packers fan (gotta root for my hometown Chiefs), this tribute to the Packers is darling!

Terry, I so (or should that be "sew" ..... groan!!!!) love your altered cigar box as it perfectly captures the feel of the new stamps, gorgeously vintage. As for the football card, it has a wonderful nostalgia to it, which again is just the right feel for this stamp set.
Wishes
