6 on Sunday...


THANK YOU so much for the sweet comments & awesome emails...
I'm so HAPPY that you like the new stamps...

I'm over the top thrilled with them...seriously.
I liked them when they arrived...but after playing & making projects...

I'm IN LOVE!

Today I can show you the final 6...

Here's the large set I've been hinting about...
with no flowers or background...

I designed stamps to use with mini books...
they are also PERFECT for ...

tim's ON THE EDGE dies...the tabbed one!!! YIPPEE!!!

and there are lots more possibilities...
you'll see...

this set is the bargain of the century...
with 27 minis included...
that makes each rubber stamp less than $1.00

THANK YOU TED...
I know it takes a lot to get this set ready...

lots of work for the factory folks who do the hand cutting...
thanks for giving us the BARGAIN!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
TA DA!



Here's a small set...
I've already used the mini heart on 6 projects...

the doilies are really fun too...
they are real vintage pieces we found...


the last small set...

some fun words...

and that bottom one has letters & numbers that fit tim's memo pins.
Think that was planned???



this is one of the large sets...
I had lots of requests for HER to be a mini too...
so now she is!

I put her on an ACT...
she's so cute as a mini...
but that's a story for another day...

the giant background is ticking...like old fabric...
the flower is SIMPLE to cut apart & layer...

the hand works in any direction...


another large set...

small & medium flowers...
perfect fit for the one we already have...

I like that they can be cut out & then stamped with any background, so we have lots of options...

I love the giant background...
and the index border is another I've been reaching for constantly...



this is a large set...
and the last for the new release...

the butterfly is a medium size to work with either the mini or the large in the current sets.
I've also used it alone...

the vintage text is addicting...
just sayin'....you'll see...it's a cool font...

I'm not sure what possessed me with the spider...
but it seemed to fit the set title...botanical art.
It was the perfect filler for a project I did...


so that's it...

all 12 sets...

I've used lots of them & I may be prejudice...
OK...I AM...for sure...

but they are really fun.

One more thing...

Yes...book #3 is in the works...

it won't be ready for Carson, but it will be ready for CHA.

The projects are done, the instructions are written...
I just need to edit and check for typos...
and to make sure what I wrote makes sense...

after I get the page set-up back from Matt...(he's the genius computer, photographer, book setter upper guy @ Stampers Anonymous).

It features projects with the new stamps & current ones too...

and...

lots of them are made with...
ART PARTS!!!

Coming up next week...the art parts reveal!

I CAN NOT WAIT to share them with you!

Enjoy your weekend...
take time...

make art.

Wow Wendy!!!.....fabulous new sets! I see so much potential in so many of the images for "making art"! Thanks for the early sneak peeks!

Helen said...

Oh, Wendy - these are even better than yesterday's - you are a GENIUS. I squealed - I mean it, really squealed, when I saw the last set, botanical art - I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. (not that the others aren't great too) I have to have these stamps!!!!!!!!!
Can't wait to see the book, too. I bet it's fantastic. Thank you for being so good at what you do!

paperqueen said...

I am really really impressed, and see so many possibilities. Love and want them ALL, but have to say, that first set....I do so many art journals, I think that's just what I've been looking for. Brilliant!

Sharon said...

Love the new lotus-style flower(well, at least if you cut off the stem)...and the old German text...though I'm not sure how old it is...my German language books were in this style...does that make me vintage? Oh, dear! And as for your book...do you know if Stampers Anonymous will be taking pre-orders on it at Carson? They've done this in the past...looking forward to the Art Parts. So many stamps...so little time...where are all those pennies?

SusanK said...

Wanda H said...

Wow!!! All wonderful sets!!! I'm really looking forward to Art Parts!!!!

Miss Iowa said...

So many possibilities here! I am loving the small sets (great for ATCs). Thanks for the early peek.

Betty said...

I will be among the lucky ones to see your stamps first hand at the Carson show. Yippee! (Will miss seeing you there though). The only hard part will be deciding which of the "fab 12" will be first in my basket!

Betty(busybetty2)

Helena said...

beautiful sets, Wendy! I just got the Feb CHA ones a couple of weeks ago so I have plenty to play with while I decide which one/s of these new ones I need the most:)

Linda said...

Fabulous! I think the first set I have to get will be "botanical art" or maybe "collectible art" or maybe I will just all of them at once so I don't have to decide! lol

WheatLDee said...

You should be one proud mamma Wendy. Your new sets are just beautiful! You really thought of everything - sizes, backgrounds,it is very well done. Praying on for you and your family.

libbym said...

Beautiful! My Ink pads can't wait!
There are so many I am in love with.

Shirley said...

Love all your new stamps. it would be hard to pick & choose--anxious to see your new book as well. i don't see how you manage to get it all done--and travel as much as you do. Have a great week making art!

benedick4 said...

Oh Wendy I am so sorry to hear about your brother and Rick's relative. I have been out of town, and just caught up on your blog. Your new stamp set are so cool! Can't wait to see the projects.
Sue

xanne said...

Thanks for the sneak peak! Can't wait for book 3 and your next class to see what you do with them. Lot's of possibilities! So sorry about your personal sorrows. Hope that art is therapy for you. My prayers.

Kathy said...

Awesome new sets, the vintage text is my favorite. But I also know that I have to have them all. Thank you for the great art.

Elaine A said...

Wendy -

Whoa! Awesome new sets of stamps! I can't pick a favorite (ok I love that little spider), they are all just wonderful! Oh my poor pockets - LOL!

Praying for your brother.

Elaine Allen

Kathy Eddy said...

Anyone know how to file for Chapter 11? LOL After these are released, I am going to need it! How to decide what to get first!

Anonymous said...

Wendy, I love the new designs.
How to choose, how to choose...hmmm...wait...I don't have to choose I should just get them all.
These are all great and will enhance my collection of stamps and making art much more fun. Susana

buglady said...

Those of us not able to attend Carson will just have to be patient for the stamps to come to our local stores or online vendors. Thanks for sharing all the new stuff!
Aloha, Kate

Shannon said...

Wendy, first off I really hope your brother is hanging in there okay or at the very least he's not doing any worse. I'm so sorry for anyone who has to deal with such a grave illness such as cancer. My heart goes out to your brother and you and your family. God Bless! I can't imagine how you accomplish doing all your new stamps and all that you have to do for the up & coming CHA show and then going to and from the hospital. Very draining I'm sure.

Secondly, you're killing me here with the new stamps. I'm still trying to get caught up from the last CHA show and buy all your awesome stamps and all of Tim's awesome dies & new stamp pads. Now I've got to start all over again and add all these wonderful new stamps of yours to my wish list. How do you continuously come up with such great ideas??

Sandy said...

Wow - your new stamp sets are so wonderful. All that hard work and planning (grin) definately shows!
Congratulations!
I can't wait to see the new creations you've made from your new stamps.

Vicki in MD said...

wonderful work! I'd be hard pressed to pick just 1 or 2 or 7 or even 10 of these sets. They are all top picks. Can't wait to catch up with Ted! I think the lace doilies and collectible art are the 1st two that I must have!

Bethan said...

Flipping heck....I was unable to log on for couple of days...and you decide to show your new stamps...well they're flipping fabulous! Absolutely love the sentiment on the 'in love with art' set....let what you love be what you do..so true!
Can't WAIT til Book 3 is available!

aknancy said...

oh wendy....love all the stamps, but what a wonderful idea for the book art basics..using tim's dies. YIPPPEE my order cannot come soon enough
