Their Day Trip To Paris

Hello Everyone
Anyone who knows me has possibly noticed that I reach for the same stamp companies time and time again:- Oxford Impressions, Crafty Individuals and The Stampsmith.  Of course, being on the DTs for those companies has a great deal to do with that but at the same time they are stamps I would reach for, as I have done, even if I weren’t on the teams.  However that doesn’t mean to say I am not drawn to other stamp companies  and own stamps that I would struggle to part with and I am sure there will come a time when DT work doesn’t take the same priority in my crafting life  when I will delve into those other loved but for the moment, neglected stamps.
I was so pleased to see that Laura has introduced Artistic Outpost to her extensive list of stamp companies.  They are a company who for sometime I’ve wanted to acquaint myself with their stamps a wee bit more than I have done to date (I already own a couple of their plates).
Why they appeal to me, the same as my beloved Oxford Impressions, you can mix ‘n’ match and I like that the sets have a vintage air to them.
When my DT goody bag for August arrived from That’s Crafty I was keen to ink one of the sets almost immediately.  I am sure you will be able to guess which set it is!DIGITAL CAMERAAlongside the Artistic Outpost set I used some other stamps but all details of stamps, inks, paints and all other bits ‘n’ pieces are on view at the That’s Crafty Blog and you will also view the project in full along with detail photographs and instructions. All to be seen HERE.
Thank you for your visit to this post and all your visits this past week. Last week I had great plans for organising scheduled posts to share some older items but the time just ran away from me. This coming week I hope to be more organised and share as much as possible, without overwhelming you with too many posts!
Enjoy what remains of the weekend.
