Artistic Outpost March Release Stamps!!!

The new stamps are here and just in time for Spring and Women's History Month! Artistic Outpost held no creativity back. As always, these images and quotes are fantastic. AO wants to celebrate all of their customers of the female persuasion by offering THREE brand new collections that should tickle any gal's fancy.  All three stamp collections measure 8.5" x 5.5". They are available unmounted as a sheet of beautiful red rubber, or you can have AO's wonderful owner Steven, mount them on clingfoam and hand trim them to perfection.  The mounted stamps come with a plastic index sheet/card for ease of storage.
Obey All The Rules...Have No Fun:  A quote with a catch 22!!! It's definitely one to ponder from AO's Quote & Quoteables. I love the smug look on her face though, which I thought fit this quote perfectly. She's the secretary with the who knows too much, and has a whole lotta fun with it!!! How about this typewriter, the staples, paperclip, and letters? I love this set called Secretary Pool, appropriately enough. It has a million  uses for so many themes!
Spring Blessings: Can you imagine walking through a field of gorgeous and fragrant Spring flowers? Talk about eye candy for the soul, as well as a wonderful photo backdrop, and picnic spot. I have never seen the Italian countryside where I am told beautiful poppies overtake the land. I can only imagine it, but I have seen hundreds of pictures and masterpiece paintings depicting it, so artists must have been inspired by grandeur. I hope to see it myself someday, but until then I can make my own little masterpieces using AO's stamp set Flower Market, where these little poppies are detailed so well.
Inspired by the famous flower markets of France, this collection of spring images includes 13 images including daffodils, lavender, poppies, and a cherub French girl who will most likely be chasing butterflies.

Women, ladies, girls...they say the darndest things. This collection of 9 fanciful quotes features idyllic and profound statements by Helen Keller, Lucille Ball, and Audrey Hepburn among others.

Featuring retro images including a typewriter, paper clip, staple collage, telephone, and a wonderful vintage alphabet, enjoy creating whimsical cards and other works of art with this versatile vintage collection.

I will be showing you more projects using the new releases in the coming weeks, but in the meantime please visit the other AO Design Team members and be inspired by their awesome creations using the new stamps.

  9. Hi Anita! I knew your pieces would be amazing and they simply are! Love how the letters in the first one look like they were pulled from a printer's drawer and the ephemera adds so much to the AO images. I would not know where to begin with creating en entire field of poppies from a single flower or two. Remarkable work! Bravo Anita! My best to you, Yvonne
