Wilson Designs: Release Day!

Ok, today is the day.........for the full reveal of the newest addition to
the Wilson Designs lineup! 


Are you ready to see all those cute images and ones yet to be revealed? 
I can't wait to show you my samples using this set!
Let's get started! 

Introducing:  Simply Silhouettes


Now that I've revealed the "other" stamps, you can bet those are what
I used for my cards today!  Here goes!
(This post is a bit long so sit back and enjoy!!)



These frames are soo much fun especially paired with this fun
little girl silhouette!    I love love the details in these frames!  Don't you
like the detail of the pearls in her hair? 
I used the "line stamp" here to make my own background.


Next up, is my FAVORITE card of today's post!! (I have one more so don't leave yet!)
This card just kinda 'fell together' and became my favorite.



Using the same silhouette image, I paired it again with
the line stamp and made my own striped pattern. 
I layered my silhouette onto a red Wilton doily.....love love this!
AND if you know me, I've been terrified to use these beautiful
 flourish gems!  Well, I got brave and used one!  Please be proud of me as
I've hoarded this one for quite some time.  :)
My white card base was impressed with the Linen side of the PTI impression plate.
It gives just the right amout of texture!
fyi:  I have never made a card without a sentiment before but I just couldn't put one on here!



My last card is TOTALLY a case of Maile Belles.  Yes, I case but
I usually change things up some.  Well, I did but only in that I
used one of Kim's new frames to make Maile's doily card!
I fell in love with her design of this card here and knew once I saw Kim's
frames, that I could make one of my own!  I love Maile's style, flair, and
designs!  I know there are those of you out there that feel this way too!
If you want to know how this was created, click here......I used the
same concept.  No need to reinvent the wheel.



The key to this design is to have patience......the ink needs to dry!
Add some colored gems, ribbon, and sentiment and you have
a finished card!  Love the results.  Thanks Maile!



Well, I would love to hear what you think of this new stamp set from
Wilson Designs.  Make sure to leave a comment for your chance to win this

where the winner will come from!  Thanks soo much for visiting!

Oh my goodness, I am loving all of the bling! It is the perfect touch to the ponytail stamp. Great cards...what a fun and versatile set! Ps: I gave you a shout-out on my blog today. :)

Debby said...

Amy you are doing wonders with these stamps. I too love the bling in the girls hair. Also a great rework of Mailes card - a version of that is on my to do list as well!

Keva said...

Your cards are so cute! You really showcased those stamps well.

Jennifer Rzasa said...

I love how you were inspired by Maile's card. The doily is brilliant!

Emily Keaton said...

Oh, wow!! These are amazing. I just love how you used these silhouettes (darling, BTW) in such different ways. What a fun new set! :)

Lindsay said...

Awesome work Amy! I love what you did with the stamps. The last one is my fav, with that frame stamped like that and the green! Awesome!

Jaclyn Miller said...

I can see why you like that second card - it is gorgeous. I soooo wanted to use that line stamp but kept going to the other ones first. You showcased them beautifully. I also fell in love with that card by Maile. Excited I can make my own now.

Lesley from WI said...

Your cards are gorgeous! I love the 2nd card. The valentines heart design is so pretty!

Stacie (craft-princess) said...

Your cards are so pretty!!!

Dana said...

Your no sentiment card is simply incredible Amy. I cannot stop looking at it. Amazing DT work. I SO want to win this set as I love silhouettes and that girl one rocks!

nancy jane said...

You showcased the stamps wonderfully. Great use of the line stamp to make the patterned paper. Those first two cards are perfect examples of gray being the new black (Moxie challenge). And that is a beautiful CASE of Maile's card.

Jen Carter said...

Amy, these are all fantastic! I love the pearls in the girls hair, and the doily card is beautiful!! Great work with this set!!

Ayana Posadas said...

These cards look fabulous, Amy! I'm totally inspired by all of them. Such pretty work!

Nerina said...

These are all so deliciously elegant! What a gorgeous take on these images ... !!

Helen F. said...

These are three gorgeous cards, Amy. I love the pony tail 'ties'on the pretty silhouettes in the first two and the third card is just so elegant~nicely done!

Cath said...

Hey Amy! Thanks for entering the Gray is the New Black challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
