Artistic Outpost New Releases!

The wait is finally over! Artistic Outpost is pleased to bring to you four brand new rubber stamp collections that are vintage, edgy, and extremely artful. We are happy to present: Diesel Punk, Charles & Amelia, Industrial Chic, and London Elements.

What is Diesel Punk? What happened to Steampunk? We still very much love the Victorian magic that is the rage of steampunk, however, we decided to advance the timeline and the trend to a more modern look. It’s like steampunk, but with a combustion engine. To us, Diesel Punk is a style that blends the “edge” of steampunk with the art and culture of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. We think of motorcycles, roadsters, red lipstick, trench coats, jetpacks, and jet engines. Three of our new releases evoke our interpretation of this style.

Below you will find images of these exciting new Artistic Outpost plates, projects I have created using the new stamp releases, along with some previously released Artistic Outpost images and sentiments, in some cases, to showcase how well all Artistic Outpost stamps work together. These new plates are available as unmounted sheets of red rubber or pre-trimmed and mounted on EZMount cling foam. Stamp sheet measures 8.5" x 5.5".

Diesel Punk: Includes images of good looking guys, a beautiful dame, a kid ready to be a rocketeer, and fast machines to tempt their fates.

For my card, I chose tones of ivory, red and black. The woman in this plate is so classy, I just had to set her off with black accents and a pearl! The vintage buttons, ribbon and lace compliment and complete her 40s look.

Charles and Amelia: Images featuring the king and queen of the skies when flying was more than transportation – it was an adventure.

For my card, I have incorporated images from both the Charles and Amelia and the Industrial Chic plates. I love how these images work so well together. The options are endless! I added a few metal sprockets and silver liquid pearls to complete my spirited card.

Industrial Chic: Backgrounds for any of your projects – steam, diesel, or any other kind of punk.

For my card, I again incorporated images from the Charles and Amelia plate with those from the Industrial Chic plate. The images from the Industrial Chic plate really work well for filling in my background as I challenge myself to stamp my backgrounds more and use less designer paper. He's one handsome fellow, don't you think? And the airplane in this plate, love it! I haven't used it my samples here, but I'll be showcasing some future samples with it.

London Elements: More of our favorite images featuring the fun icons of London.

What a great time for more London stamps! I really had a lot of fun with this card. I enjoyed working with all the new London landmarks and incorporating sentiments from the London Underground and Loverly London plates. The post card was created from the Ephemeral Background plate. My son is going to love the phone booth. He's a huge Dr. Who fan. I am especially enjoying having the pigeon image and London Bridge to add to my card making fun. And the tea it!

Speaking of tea, why not grab a cup of coffee or brew a pot of tea, relax and take a few moments to be inspired by the Artistic Outpost Design Team Members who have created amazing creations using these new releases? You are going to love them!

Incredible use of all the new releases.
I spied Sherlock - in America do you get Sherlock? If so you must try and watch it as it is BBC drama at its very best.
Wonderful work Yvonne.

I love how you have stamped your backgrounds, Yvonne. I need to do that more and had such fun doing it with all these fabulous backgrounds stamps. Terrific work in mixing it up with the different plates. I like the soft blue you brought into this one - sort of brings the sky into it. Super work on this release!
