Wilson Designs: Release Day 1

Hi everyone!!  Today I finally get to show off my samples made with the newest additions to the Wilson Designs lineup.  Both of these sets have a fun summer theme!  I know I said this last month.......but I am loving these font choices for all the sentiments!!!

My first card uses some of my 6 x 6 pattern paper stash.........Emma's Shoppe Collection by Crate Paper.  I just love this line of papers....so mixy matchy!  I did some fun machine stitching to make a fun colorful banner using the ice cream cone! 



My next card using this same set is pretty CAS.......:)  I do not know why I had so much trouble photographing this card.  The base is Spring Moss but it looks almost grey here. 



Next up is a sweet little card that I had envisioned first when Kim sent us our stamps to work with.  These cute little lemon slices fit perfectly in the medium scallop die!!!  I versamark stamped and white embossed them to standout.



For my last card, I broke out those Distress Inks.......I can't wait to show you more with these.  I have soo enjoyed using them more!  Here I've white embossed the flower included in this set and then used 2 shades of pink Distress Inks and blended/shaded them here for the graduated effect.  The colors match perfectly to PTI's Berry Sorbet!


I would love to hear what you think of the images so far in these sets!  I think Kim has done a fantastic job designing these new sets.  There are some images from the sets you haven't seen yet because we always save those for Release Day.  So that just means you need to stop by tomorrow evening for the release to check out the main images!  Ok......remember to stop by all the DT blogs to check out their fab designs and make sure to leave a comment.  You never know who's blog the winners will be chosen from!  Happy hopping and make sure to welcome the very talented Mariana Grigsby this month as our Guest Designer!!!
