stickles, samplers and Maya Road goodness

did you see tim's BIG announcement about his new Ranger products??

I've been waiting for the rest of the Distress Stickles to be ready for us...

Now we'll have them & MORE...

Picket fence AND metallics?? YIPPEE!!
Think of the possibilities!

My MOST favorite is the Rock Candy...OMG!

Here's a holiday hanging for the Maya Road booth @ CHA...

I used the rock candy on the berries, snowflake and buttons...




Here's a close up of the ROCK CANDY DISTRESS STICKLES on my holly berries...

Let me just say...OMG!! I'm in LOVE with the effect...
The holly is stamped on grungepaper...
It looks exactly like...rock candy! Imagine that!


This is the PERFECT accent for holiday projects and more...
I'll be buying this stuff by the case!!

Ok...I showed the cover of the Maya Road sampler yesterday...
here's the inside pages...

The distress ink colors are brushed corduroy and broken china...

Combined, they make a wonderful custom teal color...





These papers are graphic45...YUMMY stuff!


the numbers page...the green is peeled paint...




Here's the back cover...
ignore the yuck in the top right corner....
I forgot to crop it out...duh!
Anyway...the papers are again...jenni bowlin.


This sampler was a lot of fun...
and it was a thrill to use my new studio 490 stamps for the very first time.
***
We're one day closer to FRIDAY...the start of the RANGER GIVEAWAY!
***
Tomorrow...more big Maya Road peeks...
this one is called "notes & quotes".
Stay tuned and...
make art!

Love your Sampler! And yes, please pass the Rock Candy and all the new Ranger goodies... but I'm still trying to catch up on the "old" stuff, so that box you have been teasing us with would have a great home with me. Just sayin'. I'll be playin'. Now I'll go make ART!

Elaine said...

That is the neatest way to share and showcase, Wendy! I love that each page set has it's own color vibe. Just fabulous! I shied away from Graphic45 papers but now wishing I hadn't! Love how they look on your project! And I"m soooo looking forward to your reveal tomorrow as well as Friday! :)
