catching up, a cover, CHA and a CONTEST!

catching up on details...

I spoke with Ted last night...Mr Stampers Anonymous...
the new stamps are made & will start shipping January 28th.
They're sent out in the order they are received...
YIPPEE!

He's in California already...he reminded me to bring an umbrella...yuck...

He said my book will ship mid February...so not too long of a wait.
another...YIPPEE!

Did I tell you that the cover is much heavier this time??

Ted also said that the photography is REALLY good...


he saw the book for the first time last night...

I'll get a copy either tonight or possibly on Saturday.
Even though I know what's in it...
I'm dieing to see the final...

I finished the 2 new acrylic storage binders...
they're a fun project...
Here's the first...
new papers from tim's new idea-ology release...


For the second, I used some (items) that tim hasn't shown yet...

so I can't show the second one today...


But it will be up early tomorrow morning...
it's a totally different style...

Several have asked if any of the new stamps come wood mounted...

YES, some do...I think we chose about 18 or maybe 20...
I'm old & that was a while ago...so I forgot! The Stampers Anonymous web site will have them listed, but not until after CHA...

Ok contest details...

We'll keep it simple...

just choose your favorite set...or...if you already have an idea for a specific stamp, I'd LOVE to hear what you have to say...how you plan to use it...



They're all shown in the previous post.

So...just leave a comment on this post and that will be your entry ticket...
one per person...

Now here's the deal...
more comments.. equals...
more prizes...

I'll send out a prize for each 25 comments received...

so 50 comments equals 2 prizes...
100 would be 4...

2,000 would be...YIKES!! REALLY A LOT of prizes!



Want to see the whole Maya Road catalog and more eye candy?
Check here...

Gotta run...
take care...
have fun & I'll be back next Friday to announce the winners...

and HOPEFULLY...

post some photos...

I WILL try my best!

Check in on Saturday, if you want to see the (blue) binder.

remember...
Make art!
wendy
ps...leave a comment...
I got some GOOD stuff to send!

There is no way I can pick one favorite - or 2 - or 5!!! I want them all and I can imagine how I am going to use all of them. You really hit a home run. As you always do. Maybe we should start calling you The Babe. Stay dry in California. And make lots of art to share with us.

Wow ... I am first drawn to Word Art as these would fit into my jounal pages as well as my canvas art. But then Fashion Style draws me in as I am a textile artist, time to mix up my styles. Then I am back to the smaller set with Let Your Art Have Wings! Can see myself using bird over and over.

Don't forget your umbrella and have a great time at CHA. Looking forward to more pictures of how it all went !

Rose Art Pt 2 is my favourite with Love to Make Art a close second. I love the background on Rose Art Pt 2 and the leaf is sooooo cute.

Hope you enjoy CHA. I'm going to be glued to the blogs to hear all about it.

paperqueen said...

Well, of course I love them all, and have already pre-ordered SEVERAL sets, but I am especially drawn to Face Art and An Eye for Art (did I get the names right?). I think the elements in those are perfect for collage and other mixed media pieces that I love to do.
Have a blast in CA, and STAY DRY!
Safe trip,
Eileen in NYC

Robin said...

It's very tough to choose just one favorite because I like them all! I see myself using everything but I really enjoy looking at An Eye for Art! ;)

Have fun in California!

Helena said...

Love to Make Art is my favorite and Face art is in second place.

Have fun!!!!!

helen said...

I have 12 favourites out of the new sets, lol!! But I think my real favourite, is Art Inspiration, although It's Face Art isn't far behind. Would love to win a prize... Hope you have a fab time at CHA, looking forward to piccies.

Kim said...

Arg!!! You only want me to pick ONE favorite??? I love them all!!! The heart set is great--I LOVE hearts--but the Eye for Art is very cool... And how about those sewing sets? Very trendy!!! Well...looks like I'm going to be broke for awhile, between your fab stamps and the cool stuff t!m is doing!!! Have a great time at CHA!!!!

Penci said...

O M Goodness!!!!!!!!!!!! I am jumping for joy! I posted yesterday after a quick look at your stamps. This morning I had more time to drool over and enlarge the pics for a better look. You can imagine my excitement over the Well Worn Art! I finally got my houndstooth and you even made it better by wearing it out a little. LOVE IT!!!! LOVE IT!!!!! I really really must have that stamp and then continue to HAVE all the others. I am so super excited over all your sets. Now, to decide should I cancel the cable or go without groceries?!

debb said...

Trust me when I say I can not pick a favorite- I love them all. But if I had to mention one- Just Sew Artsy filled my mind with so many ideas/uses my head is going to explode -

Melanie Stanczyk said...

My favorite are the words, I love the fonts you used. Picture wise the sewing artsy is great.

So where can I buy these?

Anonymous said...

Its got to be An Eye for Art. With all the others a close second!

Sandra said...

I have 4 on my list to choose from what to buy first .... Rose Art Part 2, Love to make Art (love the leaves), Well Worn Art and Be Inspired Make Art ... of course I want them all!
Thanks for the fun!
Enjoy.
Sandra

Karen Ellis said...

It's hard to pick just one Wendy! I know more than a few will make it to my own personal stash.

If I have to pick -- Homemade Art. I'm a house freak and I already have some plans for those stamps! Good luck everyone! Love prizes!

Nancy said...

I want them all, of course, but I have 2 favs this morning: Homemade Art (I'm an architect in another life *lol*) & Art Inspiration. I've wanted, for quite some time, a bottle or jar stamp but hadn't been grabbed by one of the few I've seen. Then,viola! YOU make the one I fall in love with! Thank you!
I like what you did with the cover ... I still need to "do" mine I bought in the marketplace on the cruise. Yep, another on my 'to do' list.
Sweet giveaway, Wendy! Thank you!!

Janene said...

I am going to have to got with Homemade Art but they are all fabulous. And I will also HAVE to HAVE Fashion Style and Art - for no other reason that the sample you showed with the Mayar Road hangers - too freaking cute!!!!! Not to mention I love the dots

penny4thoughts said...

Your new stamps are so cool! I love the heart set - I can see that heart as useful in lots of collages, and I love the bird with that stripe background kind of evoking a ticking stripe. Truly they are all wonderful and they are sure to be a hit at CHA - have fun!!

lilacandplum said...

LOL - one - you want us to pick one - i'm laughing so hard my sides hurt....how about this.....

Let Your Art Have Wings set...the bird...cuz i'm in the mood for polka dot and houndstooth birds for just about everything....

Rose Art part 2...need the leaf now...for a canvas I'm trying to finish

Fashion Style and Art...the little shirt with a Maya hanger for bday cards for my fashionista friends

Art Inspiration...the bottle on a transparency for get well cards

Just Word Art...the believe stamp for tag art i make

Love to Make Art...the background for making "printed" grunge roses

Homemade Art...the house...the obvious is for welcome to your new home cards, but it would make a great wedding card and i know for sure i'll use it in mini books i make for lots of people

Just Sew Artsy...love the measure slip as a background for the shirt and several "dress form" stamps I have...canvas, cards, whatever

Well Worn Art...the houndstooth for flowers, backgrounds, whatever - i'm doing a lot of black and white stuff right now and it is classic for that

Be Inspired to Make Art...the plaid for backgrounds

It's Face Art...penny park tickets for collages

An Eye for Art...the art begins with a vision stamp....to make a thank you card for you...these are so fabulous...and i'm glad you have a vision!!!

ok, at first look, those are my favs...from each set...well, we all need to interpret this in our own way...my favs will change as i use them i'm sure!! have a great trip....hope the rain stops....everyone who can't go to cha make some art....keep busy while we wait for releases....thanks wendy for all the inspiration....nonnie

Jeanne said...

You KNOW I've got Well Worn Art on pre-order! I've been waiting for houndstooth forever! How about a tweedy bird?

Irene Lenihan said...

Be inspired.. make art is my favorite but I would love to have the well worn art and the an eye for art set and homemade art.... oh fudge.... I want them all.

Nancy said...

I love all of your new (and old) stamps so choosing my favorite is really hard! But if I have to pick just one it would be the bottle and label. So many ideas of what can be stamped "into" the bottle....

Anonymous said...

Oh gosh, Wendy, there are lots of the sets which I HAVE to buy, so it's more a question of which I will buy FIRST!!! And, looking at it that way, there are two sets which I just have to have as fast as possible: "Its Face Art" & "An Eye for Art". There's a reason for this: I collect anything to do with Julia -- that's the name of the girl whose face is featured several times in these two sets. She has been made "famous" by Fornasetti, who has used her in everso many decorative aspects. BUT, in addition, my daughter has an obsession in life . . . which is flying on the high trapeze -- and she does it absolutely whenever possible!!!

Soooo -- taking all things into consideration, the first set I would choose is "Its Face Art", both for the two lovely stamps of Julia and for the stamp saying "She only FLEW when no one could see" . . . . . followed closely by "An Eye for Art", with most of the others rushing in just behind!!!

They are really, truly, gorgeous!

Thanks for breaking all our banks!!! Tee hee!!!

Scrapthat said...

Well I could go on and on about the ideas for the stamps you released but I will leave you with two...one I told you yesterday I think using the scallop as a template is going to make some cool postage stamp type paper when cut out.
The other one that made an Idea jump right out at me is the vintage milk top being a mommy to a 15 month old I am all over this stamp being used on a scrap page and the great thing is being a stamp you can change up the colors and use it over and over if you like! I like that!! (great for the minis for the family too!and baby cards!) See don't get me started...I could go on for quite a while!

Dorothy said...

All your stamps are to die for! I think that the one I would get first would be the house set.
My hubby and I built our own house and I have pictures to prove it! I would like to scrap these and these stamps are PERFECT!
thanks!!
Dorothy

Linda Elbourne said...

If I really have to pick a favourite then ... and this was tricky ... I have a mind racing with ideas ... my favourite is an eye for art and my idea ... 3d collage ville here I come ... a lovely grungy canvassy collage with eyes popping out of the most unusual places!
That binder rocks Wendy ... it is a stunner ... I can't wait to decorate another binder and fill it to the brim with Wendy rubber lovelies ... I may just sit here and wait until you come back ... or shall I go make art ... I think I know your answer to that one already :0)

Kristin G. said...

I love the stamps with the stitching. That will save so much time in the hand stitching. All these wonderful things are going to cause me to go broke after CHA!! How I love and hate you all. Need to come up with excuses to tell me boyfriend.

Gine said...

woW...It is har to pick only one favorite....I think it will be "Art Inspiration" in a tight second place "An eye for art" Both and more is a must have
See you in Anaheim =)

2amscrapper said...

Art Inspiration SCS030 Choosing is a no brainer for me---I've been oohing and ahhing over this bottle stamp since you first showed it! But that's just the start of the list..... Thanks Wendy for the give-away! You only need your umbrella when you're outside--have fun at CHA! The cover is superb!

divester said...

Just pick one - oh my - Be Inspired, no - just word art - no wait Fashion Style - ok - I can't just pick on - I LOVE THEM ALL

Shirley Smith said...

" An eye for Art" is my choice for this comment, but if I had to choose again I would have to say all of the sets. They are all awesome and all have their purpose in art.
Thanks for your generousity!!! Shirley

Kaz said...

It's so difficult to pick a favourite as they all have at least one stamp I would use!! I think the best is the Well Worn Art as I love the flower and te mini houndstooth.
Fab binder, I need some of those new papers xx

Kathy said...

WANT them all-of course! But for some reason the eyes, lips,etc set is just really calling to me. How perfect to use on atcs as a subtle background touch or to stamp on the back of a card with my signature...just some quick things that popped into my head.
kathy m

carpediem said...

ROSE ART PART 2 is at the top of my wish list....followed closely by the other 11 new sets!!! Have a great week at CHA Wendy!!!

Liz in MO said...

JUST SEW ARTSY!!! No doubt.

Anonymous said...

I love, love, love your Make Mine Mini Art. I do mostly mini albums and this stamp set works perfect. I love your new stamps and can't wait for my local scrapbook store to get them in. Thank you for sharing your creativity with all of us. Mary

ZettiBetti said...

Nope, can't, need them all! i love well worn art and an eye for art!! Gorgeous and I have so many things I could use them for. Thank you!! :) xx

Donna Scanlon said...

I just love your foliage stamps; so I glad you’ve made more. I am really intrigued by the large dots in the Fashion Style and Art set. I see a lot of potential for that stamp. The flower banner is too much! Love it. It must be time to redecorate my home. Thanks for the great ideas!

Margie H said...

First of all, safe journeys!! You'll need more than an umbrella -a rain poncho and no shorts! LOL!

Like I said previously, I'm lovin' the HOMEMADE ART (not only for the title...)! Would love to make a "HOME" mini album since I've moved 27 times in my life. I'm old - can't remember all the places so why not record it?! LOL! It's the perfect size! And then make a "HOME" banner would be cool too or a card or a wine label (house warming gift)...or...OK, I'll stop. LOL!

LOVE your stuff :)

Nancy B said...

Not any easy choice, but Homemade Art tops my wish list (and my birthday is right around the corner!) Looking forward to seeing your new book. Have fun at CHA, don't forget your rain gear, the weather has redbeen nasty here in California.

Chirpin Is Fun said...

I love to make the roses...so I am sooooo excited to be able to make a larger rose! And I can't wait to use those background stamps!

Have a great time in California ... bring lots of ideas back for us ... of course I know you will!

Linda said...

If I can only choose one, I think it's Art Inspiration - LOVE that bottle! (An Eye for ART, Well Worn Art, and Fashion Style Art are all up there my fav list too!)

Have safe travels and FUN!

Linda

georgina said...

oh Wendy Vecchi what can a poor stamper do,
to pick out just one set of stamps made by you,
the choice is amazing,my brain cannot cope,
i look at them all and i so live in hope,
my hand on my heart, i think i am able,
to make a choice of your bottle and label!!!!!!
luv georginaxx

Jayne said...

I think that my favorite set is well-worn art, but close seconds are be inspired make art and let your art have wings. That's today and right now, however, and these sets are so great that it could change at any moment. Thanks for the great inspiration and the tools to make art.

jan said...

There is no way to chose just one of your beautiful stamp sets! They are all so versatile! If I must, I can narrow down 2 favorites ~ the fashion and home sets. Have a safe and enjoyable journey!

Anonymous said...

I love the heart and the fashion style.I could combine some from each and make ALOT of art. Thanks for your creativity!
wanda

SusanK said...

It's extremely difficult to choose just 1 but I'll go with Be Inspired. I'm seeing that this set could be a bit masculine and that's what I'm lacking in my art at the moment. DH already spilled the beans that he's giving me your entire new release for my birthday in 2.5 weeks!!!!!!!!!

andrea said...

I love the set with the different sized flowers. I plan to make roses with them (I love making paper roses...) I also love love love the houndstooth. I want so many of the new products coming out at CHA--so many great things to choose from!!!!

BAKERCEE said...

Love your new stamps. I've slowly purchased most of your older sets. Guess I'll have to keep working to pay for these new ones. If I absolutely had to pick one set to buy first, I'd pick well worn art.

Anonymous said...

oh you're such a tease..love your FIRST binder, guess tomorrows will be even better. For me it has to be..'Its face art'...very closely folllowed by 'Let your art have wings'.

Bethan

WheatLDee said...

You would ask the impossible - "JUST ONE" she says.... well I tried my best and narrowed it down to 2: Just Sew Artsy because I want to make a wall project about my mom (Her whole life was about sewing), Next would be the Well Worn Art because the houndstooth is SO sweet and it would go with just about anything (love the weeds too)!!! I can think of uses for almost all of the others too.

I love the colors you used for your Binder and Tim's corners - thanks for showing us & thanks for a chance to win GOOD stuff - you know what we like!

Lisa said...

Ok I love them all! But first on my must have list is fashion style and art! Cant wait to pair it up with those adorable mini hangers from maya!!!!

mamakat said...

There are many that I will not be able to live with out (the bottle, is it on wood?) but so far "Well Worn Art" is my first MUST HAVE!

Julie said...

Rose Art Part 2 has a great clock face stamp where you can use those game spinners for the hands!

Rockin Robin Caldwell said...

OK...why does it have to be so hard? "Pick you favorite set"..is like saying "Now, don't breathe". There are 6 sets that I really, really love. But, if I am forced to the wall on it, I would have to pick: It's Face Art!!! I have an idea to alter an ugly white scrub top that I had to wear when I was in Nursing School. I want to collage images on it, and am having a vision using those stamps as well as some more of the new ones. OK...off I go to the maya road site. Have fun Wendy!! Rockin Robin Caldwell

Kathleen Sigg said...

Impossible to pick a favorite! So much inspiration! Ideas are fighting for attention, so I guess I will just need them all.

denise said...

Like everyone else, I love them all, but I am drawn to the word art and the Love to make Art..... both are so very fun!

I hope you guys don't float away in California... it sounds yucky there!

Rachel said...

My favourite is going to change every time I look at them, but right now it's an Eye for Art. I love the thought of hiding the eyes in my art so that you don't see them at first and then suddenly you see them staring at you. I have no idea how I'm going to achieve that, but it's going to be lots of fun figuring it out!

Cyndy said...

Love them all but will get Rose Art Part II first. I have this box I want to cover with Graphic 45 papers and put black roses on the top. With the three different size roses and the leaf, can make a nice full bouquet. Thanks! Have fun at CHA!

Cariena said...

Hello Wendy. It has to be the HOUSE set for me - i just LOVE the set. very versatile and a close second would be the Face.........but that house you made us!!!!

Patti said...

I've been waiting and waiting for a larger rose stamp. I am so happy that you heard us! That will be the first one I buy, with the sewing theme set a close second. I have some older Graphic 45 paper that is just waiting for the fashion set!

Mall Rat said...

I can't just name one favorite set, so I have to list all three of my favorites. The " Just words Art" I could use in so many ways. Create and Imagine are two of my favorites things to use on cards, altered art, Tim's patchwork pandamoniums. "Just Sew Artsy" I love the shopping saying I could see me using that when I scrapbook the shopping vacations me and my mom take 3 times a year !!
The flower in "Be inspired make art" would be used with grunge paper .. I can see grunge flowers on everything with that one !!!
Have fun and be careful ..stay dry. Can't wait to see the next posts that show us EVERYTHING else. Thanks Wendy

Debby said...

Love your new cover! I am loving the set Its Face Art. I love the larger stamp with the face and the words. It will be great for art journaling. I want them all though. I also love the Love to Make Art with the heart and the great quote from the Beatles "The love you take is equal to the love you make" Have a wonderful trip!

Amy C said...

I love the It's Face Art and Be Inspired...Make Art. Both of them call to me for different reasons. and I have to admit that the ideas are just starting to fizzle around the edges of my brain--not quite there yet, but definitely on the way!

Shirley said...

I love the new binder! Can't wait to get one--probaby need two by the time I add your new stamps to my inventory. I had been thinking of making a binder myself--glad it only got to the "thinking" stage now.

Shirley said...

Hope I get to meet you at CHA. You are a very creative person. I enjoy your art and appreciate you sharing it.

Paula said...

flower stamp - I want to do grungepaper flowers!!!!!

Dawn (dmh) said...

Love them all, especially the bottle stamp. I think the bird is my favorite though!
Your book is very nice, look forward to seeing the other one.
Thanks for a chance to win.
Have a safe trip.
:)

Artyjen said...

I very much like the Homemade Art set.....have fun at CHA...a lot of us brits would love to go someday! :)
xoxo

michelle said...

This is easy Art Inspiration I already ordered it. . . I love bottles! That is not to say I do not love the rest!

Kathy said...

I love the Let Your Art Have Wings set.....I can see the bird just about everywhere! A very close second is the Rose Art part 2! I love doing all things mini, and in particular MR house chipboard albums, townhouses, bungalows, and I use flowers and birds on just about every project!
Have fun at CHA......looking forward to seeing more pictures!

xxsimplethingxx said...

Doh my comment dissapeared.. try again. I love the face, ticket and leaves stamp best, but I can't wait to see what comes out of CHA this year. Something tells me this year is going to very special stash wise!

Anita Van Hal said...

OMG, this is hard! I LOVE them all, and will surely have them...as soon as my dh gets another full-time job...but just one? Face Art...love love love it! Thanks for the chance to win! Hugs, and have fun at CHA!

borcherding said...

I LOVE THE VERY FIRST POSTED- WITH THE HOUSE. WOULD MAKE A GREAT ALBUM FOR A HOUSEWARMING AND MY SISTER IS REMODELING A NEW HOUSE. HAVE A GREAT CHA- WISH THE PUBLIC COULD ATTEND OR I COULD GET A JOB WITH ONE OF THE COMPANIES THAT PROMOTE.

Kathy Eddy said...

My very favorite is An Eye For Art, but there are several I can't be without this tine! Great stamps coming out and can't hardly wait for the book!

benedick4 said...

It is hard to pick just one. If I have to, it would be rose art 2. Have fun at CHA.
Sue

kkaisu said...

I am going with "Just Sew Artsy". I love all gthe background possibilities that can be made. It was very hard to choose, so much great stuff!

ekhyman said...

My "must have" stamp sets include Just So Artsy, Fashion Style and Art, Art Inspiration, and Homemade Art! I love them all, but especially these. Elaine

Donna said...

Oh there is so much eye candy and I can see so many things I would love to have. Enjoy your time at CHA. Your stamps are great, but I really like the Art Inspiration!

bam said...

My favorite is....ALL OF THEM!

Rosemary said...

Love them all but I think the bottle is so cute and it's my favorite. You really make some beautiful stuff!

Sherry Goodloe said...

My favorite is the Homemade Art set.
Gotta run . . . Lezlei and I are heading out to the CHA Craft Super Show this afternoon. We are sooooo excited. Even with all the hail here in my neck of the woods.

...Tara... said...

Oh i dont think i could pick just one lol I love them all. I really love anything with hearts so the heart set i guess but its so hard to pick just one lol

IndyCinD said...

The bottle is my ultimate fave!

Anonymous said...

Aww Wendy, you make it so difficult, just one set? Okay, I'll narrow it down to one, Just Sew Artsy. Love the stiches and the buttonhole. Have a great time at CHA. Those of us who can't attend will anxiously be awaiting your posts about what is happening. Oh, yes, like Ted said bring an umbrella and do stay dry. Dripping on your artwork may not be the look you are going for! Lois Bell

Melody (lacyquilter) said...

Well, it's really hard to pick a favorite set, because I like parts of different ones. But I'd go with 'let your art have wings' as my top pick. I mostly make cards, so that's how it would get used the most, but I'm thinking I'd like to make a bird mobile.

lillianchild said...

Home . where love resides . this is definitely my favorite IF I have to pick. You must be SO excited about this new set of stamps AND your new book. Congrats and embrace the excitement!

Janet Wilson said...

Love them all, but if I have to choose one it would be the one with the 2 flowers, clock face & leafy background

pooky said...

Ummmmmmmmm.....can I pick ALL of them?? Ok, if I have to pick one I would have to say the larger flower set. Now, what are my chances of winning:)))))))))) Have a fun time at CHA!

rockinrobin721 said...

They are all fantastic. My favorite would have to be An Eye for Art. I love those lips...wish mine were that full!!!

Anonymous said...

Some place to put all my pretty new Wendy stamps! Yes yes...*sending this message telepathically* ! Just have fun at the show ...makes me crazy to think about all the new stuff...dying to get some! xox cher

Joyce said...

You want us to pick a favorite? Are you nuts? Have you lost your mind? Bird and faces and flowers and houndstooth are my favorites. My goodness, I'd have to go with the face and the words stamped over it. Just awesome! BUT I'm really into birds so I guess that is my favorite. Love that you gave us two sizes for the roses. Have fun at CHA. We will be sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear from you.

Lori said...

My favs are:
Be Inspired..make art
Well Worn Art
Let Your Art Have Wings (bird)
Rose Art Part 2(love the background)
Love to Make Art

Really, they're all great, but these are the ones I'm getting first!

Debs Doodles and More said...

How ever will I pick just one? So it will be eeney meeny minee mo:
"Just word Art", I love to use words and these are good ones, and love all of the different sizes and different fonts used in this set.
Thanks Wendy for all of the new creations and a chance to win something fun

Tona said...

It was too hard to choose just 1 favorite but my 1st 2 must haves are Face Art & Love to Make Art. I have 3 more close runners up too lol.
I already have a plan. I'm going to say, Honey, look what you bought me for Valentines Day. ;)

Hels said...

Ohhh, I can't decide...but if my arm was up behind my back and I could only have two stamps (I know you said one but...) I would chose the shirt and the skirt..and stamp on different fabrics...and then layer them...stitching them together making some longer than others to make a really "Prom" style dress for an Art Doll...I am starting one soon...just waiting on the new stamps LOL
Have a GREAT weekend...I totally adore your binder..those papers are just divine...like Cosmo Cricket (My Faves) but with an extra zingy bit of attitude...am not making sense now so I will retire gracefully (!) to my Room of Stash and make some ART :O))

Elaine A said...

Wendy -

Have fun at CHA and stay dry. Trying to choose just one set is very hard because you have outdone yourself this time around and they all ROCK! But since you asked very kindly for us to select one set, I think it would have to be It's Face Art.

HAVE FUN and I know you are going to MAKE ART!!

Elaine Allen

Sharon said...

Well, my favorite is Rose Art Part 2...besides the roses...I love the background and the watch face and the leaf...which leads me to my second favorite Let Your Art Have Wings and the matching mirror leaf and I love the bird...almost looks like faded denim and the double stitched background is great. Honorable mentions have to go to the houndstooth background and the plaid background. Those are the 4 I will probably try to get first. Well, have fun, stay dry (but isn't it great that humans are not water soluble? Otherwise we'd all melt like the wicked witch in The Wizard of Oz). Save travels.

Kathy said...

Using the Well Worn set I would stamp using the houndstooth onto some sticky back canvas to brads for the center for some of Tim's new flowers add the Weed stamp with some shabby shutter or scattered straw distress powders. The back ground in some of the new distress inks. Some background stamping with alphabets in Sepia or coffee archival, or maybe olive. Some embellishments, I don't know which ones yet. I will have to go digging. Have a safe trip!!

Love them all, but the one that really spoke to me is "Be Inspired ... Make Art". That big flower is to die for, and we could never get enough numbers--sure, I love fonts, alphabets & sayings, but I don't have many number stamps. Too cool!--Stephanie

ScrappyPam said...

It was hard to decide... I really love those eyes, but I also am drawn to "It's Face Art". Love the sayings on this and the images and... Lots of nifty things to be created with your new stamps!

Kristi B. said...

Love To Make Art is my fave new set. I think I would get a ton of use out of this one. My 1st project would probably be a Valentine's themes wall hanging. The Register background stamp can be used for so many things! Have a great time at CHA & thanks for the chance to win. :)

Jan Hoefler said...

Congrats on the new stamps! Very nice. While each is unique, and I seem to be drawn to the Dressmaker set. Don't know why, I don't sew!
But I see many fun possibilities with it. Love the punchinella like stamp, and that skirt!
Enjoy ChA!

lesleyworth said...

wow...i'm in love with all of your new sets already...the first one that jumped out and smacked me with the "you gotta have me" vibe was well worn art...just love it! but i'm thinking that with this realease i'm going to have to have ALL of them! and your new book! can't wait for that! ackkkkk! january 28th can't come fast enough...hope my local store has their order in! have fun in CA! stay dry! and hurry back and show us some more ART!

bonniemon said...

Sew -hah- many choices! And I love them all. My first purchase will be Just Sew Artsy. Thanks so much for the inspiration you share with all of us!

Renee said...

Tough choice, but I'll go with Well Worn Art.

Thanks!!!

Heidi said...

Wendy, homemade art looks good...no. no, love to make art...no, no be inspired...I guess they"re like lays chips, you can't have just one...:) Enjoy CHA!!

BETTY said...

wauw what a great stamps
very difficult to choose but i go for an eye for art.
i love stamps with eyes and use them often.
have a great time on the cha.
i wish i was there.
hugs betty

Rhonda said...

I will have to make a valentine for my hubby using the heart in the Love to Make Art set--he knows you have new stamps coming, he's just not aware of how many new sets! I love all of the new stamps and can see making a collage using a bit of each one, the bird, the clock, the eyes, flower, ticket, lips, etc., etc.
Have a great time at CHA!

MarleneMAZ said...

Love to make art has to be my favourite as I love hearts !
Have fun at CHA !

cheryl12108 said...

love the fashion art set. i can see this in a frame hanging in my sewing room. thanks for all your great new stamp sets

Susan said...

OMG, pick just ONe? Impossible, but maybe the bird set. I love birds, and that background looks very versatile too. Can't wait to get my hands on some of these sets! Love your storage binder cover too. Have fun at CHA!
Susan

Lori Proctor said...

I love them all but I guess my favorite stamp set is the Fashion Style Art. It's just really cute I would use it for alot of things but mostly on scrapbook pages for my niece's. Hope you have a safe trip, don't get to wet!

Linda said...

How about my favorite - ALL of them? I do really love the weed in Well Worn Art. There's something wistful about it. And then the background. Gotta have it.

Sue said...

Wendy, it's just too much to have to choose a set, I will have to have the small set with the dress form first, followed by the large set with the plaid. Followed even closer by all of them!

Anonymous said...

my fav is 'an eye for art'. this is really different for you. more body parts!

Linda Lipford said...

Well Worn Art #LCS024 is calling my name and is telling me to stamp the houndstooth with tumbled glass and then overstamp the Queen Ann's Lace (weed) and Guard Your Heart sentiment over the top with bundled sage. This could be done on a small canvas and would be hung where I could see it every day, which means in the kitchen by the coffee pot.

Angela Hope said...

Plaid,Plaid,Plaid...how I am mad for plaid. But I love the bottle too....just thinking about that I can put inside that so dad gum cute bottle!

Miss Iowa said...

I'm having a hard time deciding between Face Art and Love To Make Art. I love the country-style heart that is perfect for paper-piecing! Oh, and I love that old-fashioned medicine bottle too. You know what it reminds me of? Those little bottles of fake/funny pills they used to sell at Spencer Gifts. You know--the "Over the Hill" pills, the "Old Fart" pills. I could make some really funny birthday cards with that bottle and my own labels. LOL! (OK--now that I've written a book...)

Anonymous said...

I will be getting all but my first will be love to make art!

Etta said...

ALL of them. Why not buy ALL of them. Can't you see... I'm no good without them. So, Wendy, why not, why not buy ALL, ALL, ALL of them.

Have fun!

I found my favorite the home set have the time of your life I am so green with envy!!!!

Janis Morris said...

What great sets! I love small set #4; the heart is great! I also love the plaid background; I hope I can find these when they hit the stores.

Dawn said...

Wendy, The new stamps are beautiful. I cant just pick one- I love the art inspiration set- the bottle is just too cute and the fashion, style and art set is for a shopper to die for. I love them all- you are truly very talented. Have a wonderful time at CHA- please be careful and stay safe.
Hugs from the beach!

Barbara said...

I love the bottle and the label. Reminds me of an old family owned pharmacy

Kim said...

I can't wait to get my hands on the bigger rose stamp!!! Well, I can't wait to get my hands on all of them! I am counting up my pennies to see just how many I will get + the new book of course!! So exciting!

pickles99 said...

love 'em all! but i have to get my hands on Homemade Art first. my dh and i have been married 15 years and have lived in 5 different homes, and i don't have any "home" pictures of any of them. i've been playing with the idea of creating an album about the house we're living in now: our favorite spots, where we live, eat, sleep. homemade art would be perfect for an album cover as well as page embellishments!

keep making that art wendy, because it"s certainly an inspiration!

Veronica said...

Definately Just Word Art. I love word stamps and they are awesome. I can put them on my scrapbook pages and on cards, as backgrounds, on my photo frames, on mini photo gifts for grandparents.....

ConnieR said...

I'm so excited!!! Can't wait to see some of the stamps in person. Your designs are beautiful, as usual. You make me want to make art. I choose Homemade Art as my first purchase.

SusanHnSC said...

I love love love the set with the bird!! (but the faces are pretty cool too)

cosmo_1783 said...

Yea for St. Louis. Wendy you are going to make Terry in Florida buy stamps about my home town. Surely she will send me one of her projects now!
Lori Orlando/St. Louis

Debby said...

Have a wonderful trip, stay dry and safe. I'll miss not being able to say "hey!" You have some creative and wonderful stamps. I like best "It's Face Art." Please make sure Ted brings your stamps to the Stamp, Scrap, Art Tour in Columbia. I'll be there probably for the Friday night events and early Saturday to spend all my money. Don't you want to come?

Far North said...

I love bottle and have beenb waiting for a great bottle stamp and you now have it! Can't wait to begin a series of cards with flower filled bottles! Thanks for the terrificnew products...Love the new album!!

Mary Ann said...

I love the simplicity of your sets..Love to Make Art would be my first choice, but I'm getting all of them. Thank you for sharing your talent.

hbeecomer said...

I love them all, but I am picturing the bottle with glossy accents for water with a 3-D flower sticking out of it. See you at CHA!
Honey in SC

funkycrafter said...

well, there are 4 or 5 that i rate as favorites. if i have to pick just one i guess it would be let your art have wings. i am such a sucker for bird stamps.

Betty said...

This is really tough. How can I possibly choose one favorite when I love them all? Guess I'll just tell you the first 4 I'm going to order: Love to Make Art, Just Sew Artsy, Well Worn Art, and Let Your Art Have Wings. I love hearts (have an antique cookie cutter collection), do some stitching and quilting, been wishing for houndstooth and can't resist the birdie. Looks like our weather has cleared up in time for CHA weekend. Hope you'll be able to get out and catch a few rays of sunshine!

Betsy said...

The set I absolutely can not live without is "It's face art". I simply need it!! Seriously! I have at least 5 ideas swirling in my head just from that one stamp set! I LOVE it!

Christine Schmidt said...

LOVE the Homemade Art set--so many possibilities!! The Face Art set is my absolute FAVORITE!! Very UNIQUE!! I can see using this set on ALOT of my projects. Thank you so much for these wonderful creations. Can't wait to get started using them!!!!

Cindy Trobaugh said...

I think Love to Make Art might be my favorite--hard to know for sure though. Cindy T

Elaine said...

You KNOW my favorite is the set with the bottle and label!! And I think it's officially SATURDAY now - so can we see the blue one?? I love the sunset colors on the first one - you make the BESTEST stuff ever, WV!

Great to hear things will ship pretty quickly after CHA...I am patiently waiting and saving my pennies! lol Maybe I'll be lucky and win something though.

craftimamma said...

I love the Face Art plate. I love the large face stamp and the tickets and saying especially, but all the stamps would be really useful.

Lesley Xx

Nancy said...

You have done so many wonderful sets this time it's hard to pick just one, but I think my most fav would be The Face Art and my fav stamp in the set would be the face with the background. I can see using that on many tags!!
Have a great week at CHA

creahetty@hotmail.com said...

thanks for working so very hard on this new collection. we will work some extra hours to go shop and shop .... i'll like a lot of it.
have a great CHA-time !

Kristy Hansenwi said...

I like the plaid stamp. Then I like the heart stamp. Next I like the bottle. Then I like the house. So How can one choose? Can't wait for CHA to get here so we can see everything that is out there. ENjoy.KH

Tanya said...

I love the second edition of the rose stamps! I can't wait to play with those, all your stamps are awesome! Looking forward to your new book too! Thank you for a cahnce to win!

Jenna said...

I love the houndstooth background- the entire set is great. How can you choose just one?!

Andi (RrlScrapGal) said...

Hi Wendy!!! Just poppin' in to say I LOVE the project you did for Maya Rd!!!!! The one with the dress (grunge?) on the hanger!!!!!

OK.. gotta go find the stamps:)

Cheri_scraps said...

Hi Wendy!! I love the Homeade Art! LOVE it! I'm a REALTOR and I'm always on the hunt for "house" stuff I can use for thank you cards or projects, this would be perfect for a house I have under construction, I've taken pictures every day of the construction process and I'm making the buyer a mini album, it's their first home and they are beyond excited so I thought it would be perfect for them. THANKS for the chance to win!! :)

Cindy said...

Oh this is a hard one...pick a favorite...geez...can I just say all of them?? Let me see...Gotta have "just so artsy" and "art inspriation"...and the rest of them too!!

Jann said...

You gotta be kiddin girlfren! I love them all...pick one...uh...NOTTA...I want them all! The large sets...omgosh! Get ready for altered-ness in my scrappin fest! I can't wait!

linda said...

Ok, gotta have it all!

linda said...

My favorite would have to be homemade art because I've been wanting to do a canvan house wall hanging and that stamp would be perfect!

Shay said...

I think this entire release is great! My favorites are Homemade Art as I love all things involving houses and the fashion set along with all the sets with faces and eyes...so a lot of the sets are favorites of mine. Thanks for the chance to win.

Anonymous said...

I've already warned the hubby - must have well worn art, be inspired- make art, & love to make art ASP! The rest will come to me at a slightly more leisurely pace. Have fun at CHA!

ttfranz said...

While I really want them ALL, if I was being, you know tortured, and FORCED to pick just one, OK, OK two (I mean who could possibly pick just one!) I think I would have to choose Love To Make Art and It's Face Art. They are FANTASTIC!!

Regina said...

Hope your CHA experience is all you hope for.
I like the just word art the best. I can see using it in my visual journal or on inspirational cards.

Anonymous said...

I love,love,love both of those books! I also love Tim's new papers. I am a paper-holic so I think I need to take a deep breath and back away from the computer!
I saw in the previous comment they hoped you came to Scrapbook Friend'z. If that's in Bloomington,IL I second the motion. I would be there in a heartbeat!I put this on Sat post 1st by mistake. Sorry!

Pilisa said...

OK, I can get it down to 2, but that's the best that I can do. First is the heart from the Love to Make Art set and second is the bottle from the Art Inspiration set. Thanks for the chance to win some of your CHA goodies!

kokomogoldie said...

It's an impossile task to pick just one favorite. I can narrow it down to a few...Rose art 2, be inspired, and the fashion & style stamps. Oh...and the book! Really looking forward to all the new stamps and new book. Thanks for sharing!

Holly said...

I would have to say "Just Sew Artsy" or "Art Inspiration". I hope you are having fun, I so wish I could be there! Thanks for making it fun for the ones who couldn't go!

Loretta said...

Rose Art part 2 and Word Art are my favs. I can see so many cards and wall art to make with all of the stamps. Wow!! Have fun at CHA!!!!

Michele said...

Picking just one is really hard. Love to Make Art would be my favorite and picking that one took about 5 minutes. Whew!

Corina T said...

I love them all! It's hard to pick just one, so I will narrow it down to two. hehe. the be inspired...make art and just sew artsy are my favorites. Have fun at CHA!

Lauraline said...

My favorite set is the one with the heart. I love it. My parents are going away for three months and I want to make a mini-album with pictures from the kids, this heart would be perfect for the cover!

Tami B. said...

I think I'll have to go with Just Sew Artsy. I have a love affair with all things sewing related and those stitches are so realistic and beautiful. I rarely pull out the sewing machine these days, but with this set I can get the look without thread. Love it. I imagine using those stitches on collage work to seam together the layers and images. Beautiful work, Wendy. I'm so happy to hear some will be wood mounted, too. Can't wait for Carson to buy some :)

Princess of glitter said...

WOW that is tough to pick just one!! I would have to say the Rose Art Part 2, since I took your class and showed us how to make the roses, I have been hooked since! A larger one is perfect for bigger displays and to use with the smaller rose! I have a window that I painted and I think using the small and large roses on it would be perfect to hang on the patio!

Sweetjones said...

I really couldn't pick a favorite but I always find it difficult to journal when working on my layouts so I would be able to use the word art stamps to help boost my confidence and improve my journaling. Be safe in California and thanks for the inspiration

Angie Smith said...

Wendy, I love all your designs but my fav would have to be ther Homemade Art stamp!!!! I, personally, would have to describe you as a female version of Tim Holtz!!! Great work!!!

garnetgirl said...

I've just recently discovered your blog-appreciate the "earthy" style. I've been a frequent visitor, you can be sure! All of the sets are unique. I'm drawn to the home-themed set. There's no place like "home".

Best wishes for a successful show.

Maria said...

I like all the sets, so it hard to choose.
As a set in totally, the "be inspired, make art", because it's so complete, I love the flower, leave and background. But I'm totally in love with the little bottle art inspiration.
Thank you for sharing your art on your blog, it's a great inspiration for me.

Hugs, Maria

marts061 said...

I love all these stamps but if I have to choose one favourite set I will say Be Inspired as the plaid background is very different and the flower is great. I have recently purchased your book and love your style so I guess being inspired is how I am feeling with your stamps. So thanks for that!

Jen said...

I think I have to have the new rose stamp since I can't find the first one anywhere around here.

Lori said...

Can we leave more than one comment?? I'm going to. I don't care if the blog police come and get me. lol. These new stamps are just great Wendy. Have fun in CA at CHA. HA!

Pat said...

Well..., I guess Rose Art 2 or Be Inspired, but... Indecision has struck, Pat

April Jaehn said...

Absolutely no way to choose just one--too much yumminess!! I love the cover of your new book; it's beautiful!

lovetostamp said...

I love rose art Part 2 - am enjoying making the grungepaper roses sooo much!

Thank you so much for a chance to win!

Linda B said...

Rose Art 2, Face Art and Homemade Art are my top three...HOWEVER...I LOVE THEM ALL:D

jacki said...

i'm forever grateful to tim for leading me to your blog! love your stamps - your work - your blog! love it all!!!

Artful Hands said...

I love the Love to Make art set. I also like how some images are coming back in vogue like the womans face and eyes...fun!

Artful Hands said...

I love the Love to Make art set. I also like how some images are coming back in vogue like the womans face and eyes...fun!

Bohemian Gypsy said...

You are asking me to pick a favourite???? Gosh I am feeling the pressure but the FOUR favourites so far are An Eye For Art, It's Face Art, Love To Make Art and Art Inspiration. I really love An Eye For Art and It's Face Art the most but they are all so wonderful Wendy it was difficult to choose. Love the Word Art as well lol.
Regards
Michelle

Wanda H said...

Choose a favorite?!?!?! Impossible!! But I really like the bird so I'll pick that set... but then there are the faces and the words and the borders and the weeds and the backgrounds... yep, impossible.

Keely said...

Wendy, you are killing me!! your new stamps are gorgeous and i can't wait to get your new book!! i love that you used the beatles' "and in the end, the love you ..." lyrics. Love that!! and that heart is fabulous!! my husband is a remodeling contractor, so the first small set would be fun with some of his work. and i can't get enough of any of your backgrounds. houndstooth? yeah. need that one.

Peggy Alborn said...

It was tricky, but my favorite small one is Art inspiration, and (not so tricky) my favorite large one is an eye for art! Gorgeous!

scrappin-scrappin said...

Oh my goodness Wendy!!! I love them all!!! I think my first choices would be Homemade Art, Art Inspiration & It's Face Art. They are all wonderful and I better start saving to get all of them!! Love your binders too!!! Have fun at CHA!!!

Shannon said...

OMG Wendy, I love them all!!! One thing is for sure, YOU ROCK!!! Between all the new stamps, book, Tim's new products and so on, I need to start saving a heck of a lot of money, I want it all. Thank you so much for the inspiration I get from you.

Margaret Kane Ward said...

I'm quite drawn to Be Inspired....Make Art; love that plaid!!! Can't you just see it in Christmas colors?!? And the flower will be very fun to play with. Thanks for lovely stamps.

Anonymous said...

Wendy,thanks so much for the inspiration. I like the bottle and label the best although there are several of them I'm going to have to have. Thanks for your help in class today and see you tomorrow! v Deb Smith

angelasiburt said...

Sew art is my favorite. This stamp set would work great in my stitching journal.

Karen S. said...

Wendy,
Oh, how to choose!!! Love them all!!! If I had to pick one it would be Rose Art Part 2 for the larger roses, but Face Art is 2nd,followed by Love to Maek Art, etc!!!!
Great job~~~they're awesome!!!!

Dee said...

It was tough to pick just one - but I love the Well Worn Art...love the dill seed.
Will miss you at CHA - hope to make Summer though - by then you may have your 3rd book out!!
Dee

shermala said...

I have to have the house one! It is so cool. We are getting ready to move and it would be perfect. Thanks for sharing and have a safe trip!

Alexandra said...

I think my favourite might be Rose Art part 2, I can't wait to make the bigger roses with a new leaf too I also love the clock face & foliage background, but I also love the bird in Let your Art have Wings I see the leaves are opposites on this compared with the one from the rose set and thought lovely wings as soon as I saw them will be great on a 3D bird too. Be Inspired Make Art is lovely, I love tartan being a Scot and the leaves & daisy are so pretty. I also want It's face Art, and Well worn Art love the wild flower and what can I say... houndstooth too! YEAH!
I've pre-ordered these already so I guess they must be my fav's. Wow, they're all lovely. I hope you enjoy CHA, and weather behaves itself.
Alexandra

Sue McGettigan said...

Choose just ONE fave Wendy? That's a tough assignment! I like them all, but if I have to choose a fave I'd say the sewing themed sets, wait, that's still more than one :) I like 'Fashion Style and Art' because it looks SO versatile, I can see the labels and the sequin waste on journal pages, cards, scrapbook pages - no end to what you can do with those!! I like the garments-in-progress, they'll be so fun to play with. Have fun at CHA!

Val said...

Love the acrylic binder! Pick just one fav that's very difficult. I think it's - face art no maybe well worn art. Told you it was hard to pick just one.

Diane in IL said...

Yay! I should win cause I'm the 200th comment! JK! I LOVE the Well Worn Art Set because of the background stamp in it!!!! It could be used for everything and I love that look!
