Wilson Designs: Release Day 1

Are you ready to take a look at the newest Wilson Designs stamp set?  I can't wait to see what you think of this new set!   Did you hear who the Guest Designer this month was??  THE Maile Belles!!  You must go check out her blog as she will be featuring fabulous samples using this set by Kim Wilson!

I went CAS with both of my cards today.  This set doesn't need anything fancy schmancy!!
For my first card........I had to make a banner card!  Love the little flags Kim designed to go with the nautical theme.  I colored them in with Copics and popped them up on a white card base.  Just enough color.  Speaking of color......don't you just love that twine?  It's the best stuff out there......from The Twinery!



My second card uses 1 of 2 background builder stamps........these I am super excited about!  Just look at that rope stamp?  It is absolutely the easiest to line up.  I stamped it in Haystack Pallette on kraft cardstock.  That sentiment is one from Snowy Wishes.......I thought it was perfect for a little humor there!



That's it for me today but I'll be back tomorrow with my favorite card of the release!  Would you like to win this set?  Please go visit the other DT blogs and make sure to leave a comment!  You never know who's blog the winning comment will come from!!  Don't forget to visit Maile's blog too!

These are great! I love how you simplified the card and didn't get too caught up in lots of details! These are really cute! I love the banners (of course!) and how you used the rope stamp! Oh, and the glittery sun too! :)
