new art...new Q & A's...

I present to you...
the first sighting of my new stamps...

What a thrill for me to see this cool art...

It was made by Kathy Tucker...
She lives in Ohio & I met her on the Mexico cruise last October.

I LOVE everything about this piece!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE how she added the tiny leaves from the border & cut them out...

The perfect detail...

GREAT JOB, Kathy!!! You made my day!!!

Check it out...

Pretty cool...huh?? LOVE the colors too...

Ok...on to the questions...
1. When you get back from CHA can you show the difference in the green inks...I know you say we'll need them all, but if you show them, I'll know which is the first I must have...
OK...here's the swatch I made...
They really are all different and you will want them ALL...trust me!


#2...Can we preorder your book to get on the list?
I have a file started for book orders...
but I'm not sending the PayPal requests until I actually have the books here & ready to ship...
I'll post here when they arrive...

#3...Hey U R holding out on us...I see in this issue of Stampers Sampler that U R the neaxt featured artist.

YIPPEE! What an honor.

Amanda Crabtree asked @ CHA last summer...
so it's been in the works for a bit.

I'll be excited to see it, since I don't even remember what art I sent to Stampington...(but I made all new pieces)

4. I have seen that fish stamp at my favorite stamp store. For Keep Sakes, in St. Louis. I will have to see it they still have it. By the way when are you coming back?

It's in the works...stay tuned!

5. LOVE the spool!! How big is it? Congrats to Linda!!! The can is fabulous!! When you do samples for CHA, do you get them back?

The spool is about 4 3/4 inches tall and the overall height of the finished piece is about 13 inches.

If you make something similiar, make sure it has a large base so it won't topple over.
Another trust me for tall flowers with kind of heavy centers...

About the CHA samples...

sometimes yes...sometimes no.

It just depends who I make them for. But, mostly yes...

6. will you & tim be @ the Carson convention. if so, can we do make & takes again. that was fun.

Tim is @ Ranger U that weekend, but I'll be there to demo.

No make & takes this time, since we're not both there.
Sorry.

If you live in Ca...turn the heat up and turn the sun on...
I HATE cold weather...
see you soon!

7. I see some of your stamps come on a wood block. Are they a different size than the clings on the sheets?

No...the wood mounteds are the same size as the images in the sets.

We do some mounted on wood, because some people prefer wood.

8. any chance you will sell the background stamps on wood?

No & here's why. Since they are so large, the price would be about $17.00-$18.00.

Considering that the complete sets are $24.95, they are a much better value.

So you get LOTS more stamps for a few $$ more.

9. Thank you again. The stamp set arrived today. I am hoping far a snow day tomorrow so I can play with it.

Good luck on the snow...

I hope you live no where near me! ha!

Have fun...make art!

10. i'm confused. i see the 2 new binders, but they have vol4. where are 1-3?


Here are the 4th volumes again...

I've made storage binders for each set release to keep them separate for me...

I made 2 this time, because I didn't realize that all 12 new sets would fit in one binder...
but they do! COOL.

I'll look for photos of the other 3 and post them next week.




# 11... any plans to teach in Arizona?

NOPE...nothing planned there...

#12... will you ever come east for classes?

You bet...some locations are in the works...
Stay tuned!

#13...anything in NDakota ever????

Nope...but I think Iowa is close??
Stay tuned. ***UPDATE*** Just added...Memory Bound in Ankeny Iowa!

Shopping alert...

looks like my 12 new sets have arrived here!

tim's new stamp sets are in here and here...

Time to shop & then...

I'll
make art!

Thanks for the color chart! Can't wait to make my own when I get all the new colors...which I hope is very soon. Ditto for your new stamps. Would be super awesome if my fairy godmother could deliver them Monday - a special day for me.

Colleen said...

Hoping by IOWA you mean eastern Iowa, had to miss you when you came before and would like to be able to take a class from you.

WheatLDee said...

Anxiously waiting for the Eastern Locations! Hope you are in my neck of the woods -that would make my year! Have a great weekend Wendy. (I would have used another exclamation mark, but that seemed like too many for one post):)

darlene nahre said...

do you think you will ever be in southwest Florida!!please please

Wanda H said...

Nice to see the greens lined up like that!! Thanks for all the answers!!! If you ever had samples you didn't want to keep, you could have give aways for them... oh - ya!!!!! Or even sell them. I'm sure there isn't a single one of us that wouldn't love to have a piece of real Wendy Art!!!!!

KAT said...

Nancy said...

I love Kat's creation! Not fair that she is near SA & has your stamps already in hand! *lol*

Since it looks like we'll be snowed in this weekend, maybe I'll actually work on my binder covers ... Yeah, I think that's a fine idea! :o)

Lori said...

Kat was on the cruise? I must have really had my head up my butt, there's quite a few people that I have met since then thru blogs and groups that said they were on the cruise, some even in my class group! that I didn't even meet. Yikes. Her work is fantastic. So, anyway that you can give a little heads up on what you'll be teaching in Rockford?

Mall Rat said...

Thanks for letting me know you'll possibly be at For Keeps Sake again .. I'll watch for that one. Have you or will you ever do a scrapfest at Mall of America ? I would love to take a workshop with you !!

I am sooo excited you are coming to Memory Bound in ANkeny, Ia. That is my LSS. I drove 5 hours to take a class from you in Madison, WI last November - it will be fantastic to only have to drive 15 minutes! See you in May....I'm so happy.
