Release Sneak Peek: Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions

First, let me congratulate our lucky winner of yesterday's set Woodgrain Silhouettes: Monica L. who said "Oh I love nature! I can't wait to see more of this set. I hope I win!". Monica, email customerservice@wplus9.com with your info to claim your prize within the next 48 hours!

Today's set was designed with all of you scrap-bookers in mind. The images are perfectly scaled for layouts as well as cards. If you follow me, you know that I love stamps that allow me to pull together a card quickly when I'm short on time, but also have enough flexibility when I want to take my time and experiment.

Woodgrain Silhouettes: Additions contains 13 generously sized images that compliment Woodgrain Silhouettes beautifully.

For my first sample, I wanted to show you that a masculine card doesn't have to be dull or boring. Just look at this bright and fresh Father's Day card.

I used the Father's Day sentiment and woodgrain background stamp from yesterday's set, Woodgrain Silhouettes. I paired it with some fern images and one of the birds included in today's set. First I stamped the ferns in Versamark onto PTI's Aqua Mist cardstock and embossed in white. Then I came back in and stamped the woodgrain background with Versamark as well. Don't you just love that soft effect?

For my next card I wanted to create a monochromatic, soft, feminine card using PTI's Blush and Berry Sorbet.

I used one of the large leaf images to create a stunning background. These leaves are incredible and measure in at approx. 3" across at there longest point. Talk about the perfect size for a layout or creating patterned paper in a snap. To finish this card off I used a crocus flower image and a sentiment from yesterday's set.

And finally, I always like to have everyday card sets on hand. They are great when you are in a pinch, or even as gift sets. And these big bold images make it easier than ever to mass produce.

For these 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" cards I used the other bird included in today's set. This little guy is too cute and measures approx. 1 1/4" x 1 1/4". The perfect size to hold it's own as a focal image, don't you think?

What did I tell you? I wasn't lying when I said I was having the hardest time putting these sets down.

Want to win today's set? Leave me a comment telling me what you like most so far by 11:59 pm EST Tuesday, April 6th. I will select one random poster to receive the Woodgrain Silhouettes: Additions stamp set.

That's it for today, thanks so much for stopping by, and be sure to check in tomorrow for even more samples (and another chance to win).
