Sleigh Ride - Artistic Outpost New Release

Today is the day we get to reveal the latest release for Artistic Outpost, the beautiful, nostalgic plate called Sleigh Ride. This is such a beautiful vintage set, just in time for those 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, holiday sentiments and collage elements.



This is a 5x7 frame I made out of embossed metal, cut with my nestie, and inserted the image behind the metal. I used the Antiqued Glimmers tech from the TJNL on the white cs, adding more glitz and glimmer! The color was added with wc pencils.


Winter Wonderland at it's finest. I used the Pencil over Ink tech from the TJNL on this card, then added some mica glitter, and WOW, what a beautiful card. It's a one stamp wonder, will make beautiful Holiday cards.
