Hello to Scrapbooking Fanatics readers.
 Allow me introduce to you, an amazing new line of stamps, that just arrived to the Scrapbooking Fanatics store, Artistic Outpost Stamps.
This company  opened it's doors in the Fall of 2007 and is co-owned by Robyn & Steven Sharp and Shelley Carr. Artistic Outpost's style is "vintage whimsy".  Stamp collections are designed to evoke nostalgia yet also be appropriately used to make a birthday card for a 12 year old. You will find AO stamps are useable in every type of art from card making, scrapbooking, to mixed media collages. Their versatility and consistency enables most collections to be used interchangeably.  

Today I have a very special "Shout Out", spot-lighting, an impressive group of artistically-talented ladies; the Designers for Artistic Outpost Rubber Stamps. I am honored to be a guest on the team and mingle with this originative and ingenous group of gals..
Grab a cup of coffe and feast your eyes on some awe-inspiring artwork.
The creative director of Artistic Outpost is Robyn Sharp.  Robyn's blog is http://www.feelinsharp.blogspot.com/. You can also join the Artistic Outpost group on Facebook!
Posted Below is a sampling of Robyn's creative artwork.







Lisa Somerville, is the Design Team Co-ordinator.  Lisa redefines the words organization, creativity and sharing. Lisa's work can be viewed in many stamping magazines. I think I have been attached to Lisa's hip since I started stamping.   She is on numerous Design Teams and  is Sponsor Co-ordinator for PlayDate Cafe and moderates Bloggers Challenge Group...visit her blog HERE..you can see more inspiring and creative works using Artistic Outpost stamps.
Here is a sampling of some of Lisa Somerville's work



Lynn Stevens is a stamper that I have admired for a long time...Take a look at her blog "Trash to Treasure".  Lynn is well versed in many forms of altered art.  You will see, by her many publications, that Lynn's creative endeavors are grandly show-cased in the Art World...Lynn is on many design teams and is very busy taking part in  online challenges. The pictures posted below are exemplary pieces of Lynn's work.



Barbara Washington is a guest designer for Artistic Outpost.  Visit her blog Magic Delights and you will be spell bound by Barabara's creative works arrayed in an impressive form of Collage, Vintage and Altered Art.  Barbara loves to play along, on online challenges, and no assignment is too great to dispute her flair with stamps.  These following samples are just a smattering of her naturalistic talent using Artistic Outpost stamps.




Gerrie Johnnic,  here is a card artist  that always strikes me with wonder.  Gerrie's humerous personality is often depicted in her artwork.  There is never a dull moment with Gerrie, creatively and online.  I am always amazed by her style; unexpected, delightful and  astonishingly tasteful.  Take a wander over to  Gerrie's Blog - Queen of Grunge.  I can guarantee, you will enjoy the tour.  Here are some of Gerrie's Creative works:





Susanne Czosek, is a new Guest Designer to Artistic Outpost. Her blog, Susanne's Stamping Spot, showcases some superlative card creations... Susanne is a Designer for Play Date Cafe, one of my favorite challenge blogs...Suzanne's stamping style ranges in varied artforms:   from Naturistic, Collage and some Altered Art..Make sure to visit her site, it is very interesting and informative, I can see by all the viewer comments, that Susanne radiates a special online energy.  Here are two of her Artistic Outpost pieces.


I am going to decline from showing my Artistic Outpost samples until later this week.  Be sure to leave some P-Praise for this talented bunch of gals.
