Wilson Designs: Release Day!

Today is the day!  Here we are for another Release Day edition for Wilson Designs!  I can't wait for you to see the full set.  Kim has packed this set full of sweet little images that are perfect for spring, wedding, or just because!  I am totally smitten with the wee little frames she included this month (as well as all the new sentiments).  So without further ado...........Let's introduce: 

Spring Silhouettes


Today my card has a more Spring focus.....as I am more than ready for some SPRING!   Bring it on! 
I decided to use one of the fun new frames to make my own background paper for my card and I filled it in with the little flower stamp that is included with this set.  I did add my own little black 'dot' to the centers.



I think what I like most about this card is the flower I created!  Here's what I did.  First I punched a circle of whatever size you want your flower to be.  Then cover it with a strong adhesive (I used Scor-Tape).  Start at the center of your circle and press down ribbon and start twisting and pressing down.  Do this for the entire circle.  I used some MS seam binding in red and it was so easy to do.  Simply add a touch of a pearl for the center and you have a twisted ribbon flower!  My leaves were diecut and then stamped with the dot stamp from Everything's Owlright.  I'm sending this card over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog for their challenge to use Ribbons or Lace this week.....go check them out!



I'd love to hear what you think!  Please remember to stop by all the DT blogs for more inspiration using this set and for your chance to win Spring Silhouettes!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

This gorgeous card totally inspired me to try my hand at a ribbon rose last night. Mine is awfully sloppy, but I think I might get it with practice. Thanks so much for the push!! My goal is to achieve the perfection you obtained with this lovely blossom!!!!

Would you like to direct me to the MS seam binding ..... you and Laurie are KILLING ME ....... FANTASTIC FLOWER ........ perfect balance and PERFECT colors and layout!!! I think that set might be in my future ...... did you know Anton thinks he is the squirrel from Ice Age ..... he collects acorns and puts them in his cup holder when we are out. I stole some for a fall arrangement and when he got in the car he told me that a squirrel had been in there eating his nuts ....... never mind the other stories he tells people about "my nuts" he makes me cry from laughing so hard!!!

Dana said...

Your stamped PP is fabulous Amy. I love how you combined the stamps to make that fun, graphic pattern. And you were right about waiting! Now I can place my order!
