a set a day...#14...PLUS MORE!

PHEW...
THE LAST REVEAL DAY...

I hope you've enjoyed these last 2 weeks...

my intent was to break up those winter blahs...
and to add a little fun...

I saved a favorite set for the last reveal...
it's something that has been on my mind for a long time...
since art journaling is so popular,
I wanted something fun to use...

this set is...

TOOLS FOR ART...


the pen lettering is a LARGE stamp...
it fits the current large rectangle art parts frame...

I used it in the frame for a hanging...
and I plan to use is for the title of a journal cover...

the individual words will be fun too...

I LOVE the paint brush...

I stamped it on grungeboard & cut it out...
added a bit of distress crackle paint...
and here's the result...



the bottle is FUN...
I love it so much that it too is...
AN ART PART!
you'll see that below...

"imagination"...how true is this?

"these are a few of my fav things"
pretty much says it all...

the label...
it the same as on the ink bottle I showed before...
but I thought I would want to use it as a border,
so the label is a stamp too...

that's it...
the final set #14...
TOOLS FOR ART...

and speaking of tools...
I'm thrilled to FINALLY show you my other babies...

here are the...
14 new ART PARTS PACKAGES...

I'll be back after CHA with more
info on sizes, projects, tips and more...

the package will show the individual pieces &
the quantity included...

#1...residences...


#2...mini frames...


#3...florals...


#4...leaves...
gotta have them to go with the florals...
yes...
that's my original leaves stamp, made into an art part!


#5...watches...


#6...cake stand...
this makes an adorable display for LOTS of things...
book #4 has 2 mini projects that are fun to display on it...
or...these art part pieces can be used individually...


#7...ATC ART...


#8... small creative covers...
there's today's ink bottle...


#9...scallops...
the cake stand is 2 parts, which makes a little ledge...
when layered together...

it's perfect for displaying a little...
something...


#10...for the guys...


#11...borders and bottles...


#12...dress forms and more...


#13...bookplates...


and the last...
#14...
large creative covers...



once again...
A MILLION THANKS
for all the AWESOME comments...

I sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm &
support of studio 490 products...

I'll be waiting to hear about your favorites...

now it's time to...
make art...

wendy
ps...
before I watch the BEARS beat the Packers...
I HOPE!

Oh, a 'light bulb' moment here: I've been trying to come up with something to make to hang in our bathroom, to take the place of the Michael's birdcage from last year. Nothing's grabbed me. NOW I know why! 'Cause new Art Parts & stamps were coming along soon to be made!! YEA!!
Thank you, Wendy, for sharing all of the previews! Have a WONDERFUL time at CHA!

WOW WOW WOW....Wendy. I have been waiting to see everything before leaving a comment. Each day I would wait in anticipation to see what was next. Kudos to you and ALL the great stamps and Art Parts. I cannot wait to get my hands on them. WOW WOW WOW

Lori said...

These art parts are fantastic, just fantastic. And quite honestly, I'm moving some from the die budget to the art part budget. He he.

Stephanie Rodgers said...

Which is my favorite? I hope there's not limit to what I can say here ... I knew this last peek would be the best! Gotta have it along with Art is Therapeutic, Destination Art, and I am my Art. For Art Parts, I gotta have the lg. & small creative covers, the residences (oh my, the residences!), the floral & leaves (the leaves! the wonderful, wonderful leaves! just love 'em!), and the borders & titles. And, that's just my first order! hahaha
Love everything! Thanks so much for taking away the winter blahs and sharing your ART!

Gerrie Johnnic said...

Luv the last set, but those art parts blow me away! It was hard to imagine them without seeing them and now....omg the ideas are flowing! How soon will these be available to the consumers? You sure know how to art my world!

ellen vargo said...

Love it all, Wendy... what a great release! SOOO many great ideas, innovations, twists on current fav's, new approach to current trends... what can I say? You're amazing!

I just asked Jack which team he would prefer the Steelers to play in the Super Bowl (since the Steelers ARE going to win today) and he said the Bears... so.... GO BEARS!!! LOL...

Helping to teach has grown into an offer to do actual classes, designed by ME, for HRH... things are happening very quickly! But it's SO much fun! Have a great day!

mluxa said...

Oh, Wendy, you have outdone yourself with these new Art Parts!! So many ideas cramming my head now (and not even enough coffee yet), that I can't wait until they ship!! We are truly blessed that you share your art with us. Thank you.

Tara Carpenter said...

Thank you thank you thank you for sharing all your wonderful creations with us so early!!! I have looked forward to everyday!!! Now to pick a favorite would to be unfair to the other products -- I don't want to hurt their feelings--/ so all must come home with me to be inked an used to the fullest extent!!? Lol

Larajc said...

love the watches! You have a great release this year!

kim-paperbabe said...

WOW wow wow, they are ALL so fantastic you're a creative genius!!! Hmm favourite? EACH one will be a favourite everytime I open the packet tee hee!!!

Thank you HuGs Kim :)

jan said...

The artist in me needs the Celestial Stamp set more than anything!!! Wonderful 2011 release Wendy! Could you share more about Art parts, what they are made of, how they may be like or different from grungeboard, the types of mediums that work best, eg. pigments, dyes, stains. Thanks ever so much!

jackib said...

love this stamp set - very cool. but the art parts - they are WAY cool - can't wait to get my hands on some of those - esp. the cake stand! have fun at cha!!

Helen said...

It has been such fun checking each day's peak at the new products - I love them all! Not sure that I can pick "a" favourite, not yet anyway, but I love Celestial Art, Destination Art, Evidence of Art and Art is Therapeutic. I think the way you have packaged the new Art Parts is brilliant - and I want ALL of them..... Have a great night, go Bears - BBC radio is featuring the commentary tonight!

Liz in MO said...

Well, I am fickle. I always like the latest the best, but in this case it is true. BUT, the art parts are my fave. I can't wait to get ahold of the man parts and the stamps that go with them. I love the windup handle thingy, did i miss a stamp for it? I love the paint brush from today also, love how you put the paint on the end! Too cool. Thanks so much for sharing these early with us. Have fun at CHA.

Salamanda's Scrappy Adventures said...

You did save the best stamp set to last - I love it. The arts parts are gorgeous and I didn't realise there were so many parts in each set. Off to preorder this set and maybe one more....

Eileen said...

Steampunk Art, Tools for Art, the dress forms and more art parts, the pocket watch art parts....honestly, I want them all, but those are the top choices for now. Oh, I forgot the cake stand and the Celestial Art and.....

lois Skiathitis said...

They are all my favorites especially the flowers. A club I belong to my name on the club is Blossom. I'm drinking hot chocolate to keep the heart palpitation to a minimum. The art parts are my all time favorites and the best part is they are all interchangeable with the stamps and the inks and the other art parts. TFS!!! Wendy. I'm off to count my pennies. :-D

PS Have a blast at CHA I'm looking forward to seeing the Ranger videos, so much fun.

Kathy Eddy said...

Love thi stamp set and all of the art parts! OMG, these are over the top. I will be watching the Pack smoke the Bears today at my house.

nicoleqmullen said...

Marijane said...

Today's post is mind-blowing and the stamp set is great! I can see myself using it with a pen nib stamp of Tim's that I have and some of his new pen nib embellishments from idea-ology. And those Art Parts... WOW ... I will be doing a lot of dimensional art this year. My imagination is already running wild with ideas using Art Parts. Have a great time at CHA and bring back lots of ideas to share. GO BEARS!!!!!

Linda R said...

Has it been 2 weeks? This really made the time fly by. What a ride this has been! My favorite is the one I'm using at the time - it's ALL good. I would just love to be inside your head to understand how you come up with all this? And then - after creating it you come up with what to do with it and surprise us all the time with outstanding ideas!! With so many cool things how do you calm down enough to decide what to do, where to start??? yikes - I love it all.

Debby said...

Oh my gosh! I love all of the art parts. And this last stamp set is really cool too! Have a great time at CHA. That would be a blast to see. All of the new products are just amazing. Will be looking forward to learning your new teaching schedule too!! GO BEARS!

Elaine A said...

Wendy -

FANTASTIC! I love them all (I am partial to the pocket watches, FOr the Guys, Cake Plate - oh heck - all of them!)!!

Elaine Allen

P.S. In my excitement for the Art Parts (I'm addicted) I forgot the last stamp set. It is PERFECTION!

sue said...

No more left. Now what am I going to do? Love all the art parts and the paint brush. Can't wait to see what you did with everything. Have fun at CHA.

Anita said...

Wow! These are amazing! I can't wait to play with the different kits. I love the bookplates.

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

I love all the art parts Wendy, they allow you to add so much dimension to your art which is what I like most and even better that the stamps coordinate too. Must be such a thrill to create your own pieces, wonderful achievement. Tracy Evans x

Sandra said...

it was a great 2 weeks Wendy - thanks for sharing!
As long as the Jets win I am all right with the Bears winning today!
Sandra ltb

Vic said...

I love them all! I think I'm going to have to pick favorites by specific projects which will mean I need them all!

Lesley said...

Phew!!!! What an achievement!!!
I couldn't begin to a favourite....they are all so special.
Even though i am beyond excited about these babies being on sale soon.... i have to say that i am sad about these sneek peaks coming to an end. For the last two weeks you've brightened up my day which is normally just full of mundane things and my twins being naughty!!! So thank you for that!!!

Wanda H said...

Wow!! Awesome!! There isn't a single art parts package I don't want... favorites... tough... florals, leaves, pocket watch, bookplates.

Wendy,

All your stamp sets are amazing and are a necessity for my collection. I love all the new art parts too! I can not choose except to have them all. Have fun at CHA and see you when you return. Thank you for all the blog sneek peeks since many of us are not able to attend CHA in person.

Marilyn L. said...

Sorry about the Bears - but James Starks is one of my students from High School, so I had to root for him and his team! Our hometown favorite! Love the art parts and can just see all the possibilities. You have coordinated everything so perfectly! Thanks.

marci said...

Oh boy - here we go again. Time to hide the wallet. Thanks for a great 2 weeks - I really enjoyed seeing all the new stamps and art parts.

scrappin-scrappin said...

Wendy, you have out done yourself with this CHA release!! Totally amazing!! Love all the stamp set's and Art Parts, need them all!! Can't wait to see your new book!!

octlove said...

Wendy this post should have started with the following statement:
before proceeding further….1st consult your doctor…reading this post may cause the following –
~ shortness of breath from gasping at the awesomeness of the new release
~ laryngitis from screaming with glee of seeing the new art parts
~ over-excited bladder causing a small amount of tinkling from imagining the new projects you will be creating
~ lightheadedness from realizing how empty your piggy bank is going to be

Seriously…I have truly enjoyed the last 2 weeks of seeing you unveil you new stuff…and look forward to seeing your latest creations & your new book…my current favorite new release stamp set…ART IN BLOOM

Shannon said...

Are you kidding me..............
the new products are amazing!! Between you and Tim H. I am definitely going to be broke for the first part of spring. You've outdone yourself Wendy, each and every new product of yours is off the charts awesome. And it seems you have found a niche in the market that no one else has (including Tim) with all your "Art Parts". And to find a new niche in the scrapbooking and paper arts market is pretty amazing because there is so much out there of everything that can be thought of. Believe me these are going to be flying off the shelves and you guys are going to be bombarded with orders at CHA. Love it all!!

Sandi M said...

Where to start! This stamp set is awesome. As a Sound of Music fan, I just love that little saying :) The new art parts...the ones you've chosen to match the new stamps are perfect! The cake stand and scallops - fabulous! All the other cool bits and pieces....well I think this entire release is your best EVER Wendy! Enjoy CHA - you are going to be really busy taking orders :)

debbiek said...

Wendy, your art parts keep getting better and better. Soooooo many possibilities for them and the stamps are terrific! Have a wonderful time at CHA and be safe:)

Larissa Heskett said...

WOW WENDY!! STILL NOT SURE HOW YOU FIND THE TIME TO DESIGN AND CREATE AND TRAVEL AND STILL HAVE A LIFE OUTSIDE OF THIS INDUSTRY!! YOU ARE LIKE SUPER WOMAN!! =)
I LOVE THEM ALL AND I CAN'T WAIT TO PLAY!! MY FIRST PURCHASE WILL BE THE BOOK COVERS AND THE ATC CARDS!! I CAN'T WAIT TO CREATE USING THESE AND I'M SURE I'LL HAVE TO SAMPLE SOME OF THE OTHERS!! THANKS FOR SHARING AND HAVE TONS OF FUN AT CHA!! =)

Cyndi Szalma said...

Between you and Tim I am going to go broke! I am going to start saving now. Your new things are great but where do you find the time? You are simply amazing!
