Wilson Designs: April Release Day 1!

Hey Hey Hey!!! It's Wilson Designs release time!  The Wilson Designs Design Team is teasing showcasing projects using the new stamp release for April.

Here is my first card, as you can see this is a nautical set. I have chosen the Ship's Wheel using one of my favorite techniques: repetition to create my own background paper. I use this a lot in my projects.

I wrapped some hemp cord around my kraft panel threading my punched anchor paper charm.  A scalloped border trim and sentiment completes this Nauti-Cool card.
My Second card I use a little more girly bright colors displaying this fun set. Again, I am using repetition stamping to create a focal point and displaying one of the new sentiments in the set. Being that I am a Floridian and have lived in Hawaii for 9 years I run on solar power and therefore I am a Sun Kissed girl!  J I have friends who would appreciate this card also! 

I just love the scripted font in this set.

The last card I have for you today is a mix up card.
The Pennants are too cute for words and I couldn't help but pin it up with some "bling". Shore Thing is a sentiment that comes in this release and I adore you  is from Ride Away With Me.  Kim's sets always work so well with each other.  Speaking of adore, how about that life preserver?  

If you want a chance to win this adorable new Nauti-Cool set from Wilson Designs  be sure to leave a comment on my blog as well as the other design team blogs.  We never know where the winner will be drawn from. As always, I love hearing your thoughts and I appreciate you visiting so much! Check out my very talented teammates!  I will see you back tomorrow with some more inspiration and the reveal.

Great cards Tammy. My fave is the first one though - I love blue and brown together. I just started making my own patterns with repetition too. It's so useful when I can't find paper I want!

The PP you created with the ships wheels is perfect on the craft paper.

Super fun cards!!! Love all of them!

These are fantastic, Tammy! I really love the masculine one with the ship's wheel but those pink 'girly' ones are fun, too! I especially love the pink rope in the corners of the second card.

Wendy ten Hove said...

Hi Tammy!

Love your cards here today! But the first one it my fave! Oeh, a card like that would be perfect for my dad!! He's a huge sailing-on-older-boats (wooden ones) fan, but I think it's so difficult to make a card with a sailing theme, and this one is perfect! Would you mind me borrowing this idea once from you? Love it!

Hugs, Wendy

Kate said...

These are fabulous, Tammy! What a great idea to make your own patterned paper, too. I'm going to have to give this technique a go!!

Laurel said...
