Wilson Designs: Release Day!

Today is the day for the release of Kim Wilson's newest stamp set in the Wilson Designs lineup!  So without further waiting............here is the newest set:   Nauti-Cool



Let's get started on my samples today using Nauti-Cool!  My first card is my favorite card of the release! 



I made a sailor's knot to go along with this set!  I've been wanting to make one of these for a LONG time and finally had the perfect set to use it on!  I found the tutorial over a year ago and had it bookmarked for future use.....you can find it HERE.  It was super easy and I also used the tip of making a small notch in my panel on the sides to wrap my twine into.  Otherwise, this would be very bulky (and it already is).  Next, you get another look at one of the background stamps....the chain.  Again, very easy to line up.  Edit:  My card loosely uses the sketch from the JUGS blog for this week!



My second card uses some of the other nautical themed stamps in a CAS way via the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping.  I added a little detail and stamped a sentiment!  Love this!



Alright, so what do you think?  I hope you like this set as much as I do!  Now go check out the other DT blogs for more inspiration and don't forget to check out our Guest Designer, Maile Belles, too!  This set will be up for purchase for $12.99 over at Wilson Designs.

WOW, Amy, these are fantastic! I looked at that first card and said to myself, surely she didn't tie that rope herself! That is amazing, it adds such a cool detail! Love those waves and the nautical color scheme on both cards.
