Send in the Clowns with a Postal Theme

"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."


My two projects for tonight both have a Postal theme, post cards and stamps. Without further adeau, "Send in the Clowns".

I used the two small stamps from the "free" collage sheet and trimmed the edges with my stamp decorative edge scissors. I stamped the clown, the row of dots, and CLOWNS from Send in the Clowns to create the larger stamp image. I free-handed the 5 cent to match the price sign on the smaller stamps. I mounted the stamps on black cs so that you could see the perforated edging. I used a bar code stamp from a retired SU set. I have been kind of on a kick to stagger my matts, I think it adds a little more interest without distracting attention from the focal point which I want to be the main image.

I used the tiger image from the "free" collage sheet for the post card project as well. I have a template for the post card which I just print off onto cardstock. I mounted the postcards on black cs and added two circus tickets and this project is ready to be added to a 12X12 scrapbook page. The project measures 7X11.

Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the Design Team and Guest Design Team members Send in the Clown projects.

I hope that you have enjoyed my projects for this new awesome release. I have only begun to create with this set and combining it with the Vintage Circus stamp plate.
