Global Stamping Friends July Blog Hop New Online Exclusives

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends July Blog Hop as we explore the wonderful new products from the Online Exclusives, available now. Our wonderful Design Team members will be sharing their beautiful projects and ideas to help inspire you to explore these amazing new products. 
I fell in love with the products in the new One Horse Open Sleigh Suite Collection and couldn't wait to start creating Christmas cards with them. I often create "Christmas in July" projects and it's a great way to get a head start on my holiday projects. The One Horse Open Sleigh 6"x6" Designer Series Paper has simply stunning scenic background designs that make beautiful cards not only for Christmas but for other Winter themed occasions. For my card design today, I felt like it could be used like a Thinking of You card or as a Christmas card because the sentiment leaves it open to be used for a variety of occasions. I love the Horse & Sleigh Bundle and it coordinates beautifully with the pretty designer series paper.

This beautiful card is relatively simple to create and I wanted the horse and sleigh to feel like a part of the background scene for this design. I used one of the designer series paper designs to create the card front and adhered it to the Night of Navy card base to help it stand out. For the horse and sleigh image, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic White cardstock and colored it in with Stampin' Blends Markers. I chose to use Boho Blue for the sleigh, Moody Mauve for the coats and hats, Smoky Slate for the horse, Pebbled Path for the reins and gloves and Petal Pink for the faces. I added a touch of Flirty Flamingo for one of the pillows as a contrast to the Moody Mauve. I used the coordinating dies to die cut the image and then I used Light Balmy Blue to lightly color around the white edge of the image so that it would blend in with the designer series paper background. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Silver embossing powder onto the Night of Navy sentiment label die cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies and trimmed off the right side to create a straight edge. I added the sentiment to the card front on the bottom right side so that it was in line with the edge of the designer series paper. For the horse and sleigh, I used Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to add the die cut to the card front so that it slightly overlapped the sentiment label. to complete the design, I added several of the White Snowflakes to the card front and added small Silver Sequins to the centers for an additional touch of bling. I just love the Winter feel of this card design, a perfect contrast on a hot Summer's day.
