hey...I have ANOTHER cool surprise!


this CHA has me jumping out of my skin excited...

I'm exited about my new ART PARTS release...
sounds like you are too...
HUGE THANKS!

I'm excited about my new stamps...
I'm glad you like them too...

and I'm super excited to show you a photo
I stole from tim's blog...

that are a PERFECT size for...

the new...
ART PARTS creative covers!

how FLIPPIN...OVER THE MOON...exciting!!!

check out his video...
for LOTS of exciting news...


phew...
gotta get my blood pressure under control after that!

Ok...
I leave you with a few quick photos...

LOTS of the individual ART PARTS pieces are interchangeable for lots of mix & match options...

on the photo below, I used a roof from the ART PARTS residences...

with a mini frame...which is 2 inches x 4 inches...

with an ART PARTS floral...

and added a 2 inch new mini scallop trim...

and some CLEARLY FOR ART...Blackout...
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Blackout...
and lots of new stamps...

to make this mini house...


I've showed peeks of this next project...

Hello...RANGER...
I'll be needing a new LANYARD...
I had to chop a piece off mine to accent the base...

this guy will sit on my demo table...
gotta let people know that I LOVE RANGER inks!


OK...
I see stamp pre-orders listed here...
and I'm expecting ART PARTS packages to be listed there soon...
TODAY?
fingers crossed...
I'll update with a link,
if I hear about the update...

while you're contemplating your purchases...
add tim's new Distress Stains to the list...

these are totally awesome...

I've been using them to QUICKLY cover large areas...
they lay down the PERFECT base color...
QUICKLY...with no rubbing!

after the piece had a base coat of color,
then I went back and added my Distress inks
with the blending tool...
to add shading and color blending...

these stains are PERFECT for ART PARTS...
you'll especially LOVE them for large pieces like the creative covers...

I bet it took less than 30 seconds to ink the large cover...
SERIOUSLY...

so flipping easy & FAST!

weathered wood over ART PARTS creates THE MOST BEAUTIFUL bluish/grey color...
OMG...I about fainted...

my only complaint with the stains is that
we have 12 of the distress colors...

not all 36!

I WANT...REALLY NEED all 36!

you can bet the house that
I'll be sucking up to tim, Alain & Justin about that...
big time sucking up...

I'm 100% serious...
use one...
you'll need them ALL...
like I do...



time to pack my new stamps & demo stuff...

I'll be needing my demo stuff to...

make (CHA) art!!

You've got me flipping out from your excitement :) Have a total blast and enjoy your time. Send pics if you can so we can feel like a small part of it. Sorry about my Packers beating your Bears yesterday .. it was a good game. Have a ball, stay safe .. look forward to whatever you have to share !

Noreen said...

Amazing - the way you use all your stamps to make your wonderfully creative art parts!! Just love how you use the parts, too!

debbiek said...

Oh my gosh. More art parts and more stamps. I think I'm going to have to start looking for a new house to store all my new toys in! Amazing. Love it ALL!

Eileen said...

Oh, I was hoping, praying, the book cover stamps were sized for your art parts. Yea! It's so nice when designers play well together, LOL!
Well, travel safely, and have a BLAST at CHA. Say hi to Tim and Mario, and knock 'em dead at the Ranger booth!

Lori said...

Wow! Great stuff! and how cool to have products that interact with each other so well.. LOVE that! Your samples are very inspiring..have fun!

sue said...

Have fun at CHA winter. Send pictures of all the fun there.

WheatLDee said...

I love all the new products coming out this year. Can't wait to get them (at least some of them)!
Now,not to dampen the excitment, but I hope you will chain your demo table piece to your wrist, or Rick's wrist, or some secure place - you don't want anybody walking away with it.

Anita said...

How cool to have a stamp coordinate with the art parts. Stunning projects!

Sandra said...

you are too cute!
Enjoy Wendy - wish I could be there .... sorry about your Bears .... Jets lost too =(

SusanK said...

There are no words left to describe how I feel about your sneak peaks this season. Wow!

Debby said...

So glad art parts and Tim's stamps will go together. I saw he had a ruler stamp in his new releases. It would be cool to have an art part in that. I hope his grid blocks will work with your stamps too or else we need those for your stamps. Hint hint. Have a great time at CHA!

nonnie said...

cannot wait to see the blackout....and wondering if the art parts book covers will fit my all time favorite magenta stamp - which is a book cover! cannot wait to play...safe travels...looks like the weather here in the midwest is cooperating!

2amscrapper said...

I love your enthusiasm, Wendy. And I was so happy to see Tim's stamps for your art parts. You two are quite a team!

nicoleqmullen said...

I saw those stamps and the vid and now I cant wait to get my hands on the book cover stamps and your art parts, it will be books galore in my studio. And I agree, you, me and everyone totally NEEDS all 36 of the clours :) Love the peeks that you gave us of the art parts, enjoy CHA!!

Marijane said...

Oh, those Tim stamps will make your art parts covers perfect! I am so glad you two are working together making art!

I'm soooooo in love with you, Tim, Ranger, Stampers' Anonymous, Sizzix, Tonic, etc. etc. etc. Working with each other is the best! That's why I'm a demo for the other guys ... because everything worked together ... now, if I could only do direct sales for Ranger, I'd drop them in a NY minute! Ssshhhhhh!
