Wilson Designs: May Release Day 1!

Hello There!

It's time for the May Wilson Designs release to get underway. Today I get to help introduce well more like sneak peeks for not one, but two additions to Kim Wilson's new stamp line. Both will be available for purchase 6 p.m. PST May 4th.

So let's get to the projects! First up is a rockin' little number that displays 6 of the new stamps in this set! Lots of fun little elements to dress up this card!
I just love the rockabilly feel of this set.
Here is a quick shot of the sentiment
panel up close!
Edit to note on the sentiment below: The grammatical error below WILL NOT be on the final set for sale tomorrow! Rest easy! J
Next up is a fun little basket I created perfect for Father's Day!  I call it a "Little Bit Country and a Little Bit Rock-N-Roll" Since we are buying a "new" older house, I figured the short stuff could give Daddy-O a Home Depot Gift Card for Father's Day. {Good Thing he doesn't read my blog}
Since the hubs is in the Army I thought it fitting to go with Patriotic colors and it really seems fitting given the recent days events!!!! 
Now on to the Next Set!

If you love experimenting with building your own background, then that is what I have in store for you. 

My first card is a bright, fun and cheery card inspired by a couple of things: Kim's logo which always incorporates hot air balloons, and a hot air balloon festival we went to in my home town a few weeks ago. 

Creating a hot air balloon shape, I then stamped the polka dot background builder to create my own pink polka dot pattern. Next I strung some beautiful pacific blue twine to the balloon basket which is stamped with the houndstooth background builder also in this new set. Do you like those fun clouds? I stamped and fussy cut them from Ride Away With Me and since I am in love with this houndstooth background pattern I added it to the clouds. Why not?  Enjoy the Ride is one of the sentiments you get to look forward to in this fun new set.  I couldn't help but add dare I say a "cute" little bow to the corner! 

My final card is another way to focus on the background builders.
I saw that Teacher Appreciation is coming up, so this gave me an idea to create a fun little card to let your favorite teacher know they are appreciated.  "You're Awesome" is the perfect sentiment for such an occasion. 

Wohoo! That's all for today! I hope you enjoyed Day 1 projects, but you need to keep on hopping and commenting for your chance to win these fabulously fun stamps from Wilson Designs.  I would love to hear what you think! Don't forget to come back tomorrow night for more inspiration and the release!

Love the super cool shades! Great job.

Amber S said...

Such great cards. But the "your the best" on the guitar basket should read "You're the best". I hope that's not a typo on her stamp set!

Emily Leiphart said...

These are fabulous, Tammy! I really love the Daddy-O gift you made for your husband! (But like Amber, I also noticed the grammatical error.) I love how you used the sentiments in the first card, too. This release seems like so much fun. I can't wait to see the full reveal!
