It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas - Artistic Outpost Releases Sleigh Ride

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere I go.....Okay so maybe the 90 degree weather we just experienced has me longing for Christmas, it sure is looking like Christmas over at Artistic Outpost, with the release of Sleigh Ride.  Don't you just LOVE this plate!  This plate also coordinates nicely with last years Snowy Woods plate.

Perfect for Home Decor pieces or your Holiday cards, Sleigh Ride features nostalgic images of children in their coats and finery, perfect for your winter or holiday projects. We also feature a versatile background stamp of glistening pine trees and holiday sentiments and collage elements.

These stamps are available both as an unmounted sheet of red rubber measuring 8.5" x 5.5" or mounted on EZMount cling foam, pre-trimmed, and stored on a printed cling card. Visit the Sleigh Ride GalleryClick here to save 10% on all your Artistic Outpost purchases.

Here's a few projects I created

For this card I took my inspiration from Card Patterns Sketch 82, rotating the sketch to fit my image.  The beautiful papers are from Cloud 9.  I embossed the Artichoke panel to mimic the paper in the circle.  The trees are stamped in Artichoke on Vanilla, then I sponged on some Distress ink in Pumice Stone.  The image is stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, colored with the Marker Watercolor Technique, then cut out with an Xacto Knife.  (I did cut off the basket)  The image is adhered to the stamped tree panel, so it looks like the image is Out of the Box.  The close up at the top of my blog shows the Glimmer Mist, I sprayed over the finished card.

I've had these beautiful snowflake frames in my alterable box for some time.  I picked them up at Kohl's last year on clearance.  I did a little masking with the Trees and Girls from Sleigh Ride plate, stamping the girls in Black Archival and coloring using the Marker Watercoloring Technique, then masking them and adding the beautiful Pine Trees in  Pine Distress Ink.  This makes for a quick gift or beautiful Home Decor piece.
