Wilson Designs: Release Day 1

Hi everyone!  Today is the day you've been waiting for.......some projects using the newest stamp sets in the Wilson Designs lineup!  Remember this month we are releasing 2 new sets!  I have several photos to share so sit back and enjoy!  Please scroll down to view all of my cards!!

First up, I used some of the musical note images for a sweet little set of 3 x 3 cards. CAS....easy!

My next card uses more of these musical images in what Kim likes to call a "mix-up" card to show how easy it is to use your existing Wilson Designs stamps with the new released sets. Here I've used the ringed circle background from Everything's Owlright.

I fussy cut a guitar and then broke out my Glossy Accents. I added this over just the black portions of the stamp. Totally reminds me of a this guitar my husband has that he got signed by numerous artists when he went to the Country Cares for St.Jude Kids seminar. It was supposed to be given away but the winner never picked it up! The radio station did some cleaning and found it and sent it home with him. Anyway, here is a close-up of the Glossy Accents....it added so much dimension and shine!

Here is a card using a basic background image from one of stamp sets........Polka Dots!!  The main image will be revealed tomorrow.  Oh how I love polka dots!!!  You will be seeing this on a lot of things......it's just the right size to ink up and soooo EASY to line up!!

Now, I wanted to point out why my polka dots look "distressed".  I inked up my polka dots and then drug the stamp across the ink pad.  It then gave it that distressed look when stamped!  I love it!  Here is a close-up of what I'm talking about.  I just love little tips like this to give your stamps some new life!

For my flower, I die cut some scalloped circles using some dies from PTI.  Stamped them with the sentiment "You go girl" over and over, added some more black distressing, crumpled them up to fray the edges just a bit, and added a huge grommet from my stash.  Another CAS card!!

Finally, a card that I LOVE using another basic background image.......Houndstooth!!  Here I measured with my score pal to determine the width of the scor-lines.  I then scored........this made it super easy to stamp that Houndstooth image to create these strips.  However, I don't want you to worry....Kim designed this stamp so it is very easy to line up if you choose to stamp it to make a continuous background.

Here is the close-up version to see the button and twine details.  Talk about CAS!!  I LOVE this.....but hey, I already said that, didn't I?  This is also my "mix-up" card......I used the Father's Day sentiment from

 Alright, what do you think?  Are you excited to see the full release?  I can't wait to show you my final projects using the main images from BOTH of these sets tomorrow!!  Make sure to stop by the rest of the DT blogs for more inspiration and to comment because there will be some stamps up for grabs to some lucky commenters!!!  See you tomorrow at 6pm PST!
