Artistic Outpost New Releases

My Apothecary Box
With Halloween right around the corner I had some fun using the new Apothcary images from Artistic Outpost, they just seemed to go hand in hand or should I say " bone to bone "
with a Mad Dr. who just maybe giving out the wrong prescription to some unsuspecting victim.
Those label stamps fit perfectly on the bottles of tonics and potions.
So whats your prescription for fun?
I'd say these new stamps are mine.!!

Apothecary : Before the invention of the drive-thru Walgreens®, the apothecary was not just a dispenser of medicines, but also a mix-ologist of tonics, keeper of secrets, and giver of advice.  Antique apothecary bottles are highly collectible in part due to the “mystery” of what could actually be in them.  Our AO stylized bottle has a blank space that our “product” labels fit perfectly into…or hand write your prescription on our vintage Rx pad.
Halloween Treats :  Growing up, our Halloween decorations were Technicolor large die cuts of pumpkins and kitty cats and witches on broomsticks.  These stamps remind me of those “cardboard” cut-outs.  How I wished we had saved them!   Try mixing this set with our other Halloween collections as well as Apothecary!
Frosty & Friends :I love the sweetness of vintage Christmas cards.  The secular imagery was dreamy and cute...so sugary sweet my teeth hurt just to look at them.  This collection features some of our favorite images from our own AO collection of vintage ephemera. 
Please note that due to the high volume during new releases, that “mounted” stamp collections may take 10 days to ship.  We will keep you posted on your order, and thank you so much for visiting our outpost.
