Have a Clown Party-Send in the Clowns!

"Send in the Clowns" is the newest release from Artistic Outpost featuring vintage images of lovable, funny, clowns. Our clowns are not creepy and they are definitely not scary. This collection comes in both unmounted (8.5" x 5.5") sheets as well as precut, mounted on EZMount foam, and packaged on their own printed and indexed storage sheet.

All images are designed to also coordinate with our Vintage Circus collection. We are just in love with this collection, and we hope you are too."

"As a preview special, when you buy "Send in the Clowns" you will also get a FREE coordinating collage sheet professionally printed on cardstock. This sheet features more circus images including vintage posters and advertisements. This special is good through March 22nd."

Here are my Circus Party creations:

It's a perfect set to create your own Birthday Party package. I used the new Send in the Clowns stamp plate to create the stand up clown. I just cut a small slit between his shoes and cut a small strip of black cardstock to place in the slot and you can have a whole table of happy clowns in no time.
The invitation is very simple to make from one sheet of 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock. I created a template that is available on the projects page of Artistic Outpost soon.
I used another colored clown for the gift bag tag and tied it onto the twist tie. I purchased the striped gift bags at Hobby Lobby.
The straw cover is a clown face that I left tabs at the top and bottom when I cut it out so that I could use my paper punch to make a hole to fit the straw into.
I purchased the ticket holder box and altered it by adding an elephant standing on a ball on each side.
The possibilities are endless. You can make your own hats or purchase red ones and add a clown or elephant to each.
Makes me wish my kids were still little.
Have a great night and be sure to check out the other Guest Designers projects and those of the Design Team as well.
