Take a Sleigh Ride with Artistic Outpost Stamps New Release

Artistic Outpost is releasing a new set of stamps today -- SLEIGH RIDE. The stamps are available both as an unmounted sheet of red rubber measuring 8.5" x 5.5" or mounted on EZMount clingfoam, pre-trimmed, and stored on a printed cling card. Sleigh Ride features nostalgic images of children in their coats and finery, perfect for your winter or holiday projects. There is also a versatile background stamp of glistening pine trees and holiday sentiments and collage elements.

My card uses the background trees with the sledding children and the sentiment "Winter Wonderland". First I stamped the children. Then I placed a mask over them and stamped the trees in green. I just love how the trees look like they are covered with snow. The sky was stippled with blue ink and the sentiment was stamped over the trees and sky. The background paper is from a stack of beautiful vintage Christmas paper which was given to me by a dear friend.

To see more projects using these stamps, go to the Sleigh Ride gallery and visit the sites of the other design team members. You're in for a true winter wonderland!
