a set a day...#1...



It's FINALLY MONDAY...and I can share a new studio 490 stamp set...

I designed these new sets to be mixed with my existing stamp sets...

there are 11 large sets and 3 small...
you'll see ART in each title again...
I LOVE that word...

here's the first large set, called "art is therapeutic"...

the medicine label has turned into a favorite...
I knew I would like it...
but once I got it & inked it, I TOTALLY flipping LOVE this one because it's got so many different elements...

obviously, it's a pretty big background stamp...

I plan to use lots of the individual words...

sections of it are perfect for stamping smaller pieces...
I did these flowers...cute...

the straight lines make it easy to use just a section as a mini label or sign...

"august flower" fits with all the flower stamps...
I love the rounded title...

"proprietor" is mini & fits perfectly on my straight art parts flower stems...
(which can be cut to make trims for???)...I've used that on several CHA projects...

same with "guaranteed by"...

lots of the letters & the number fit tim's memo pins...
think custom epoxy accents...
just fill the memo pin or charm clip with Glossy Accents...

I could go on & on about this one stamp...

moving on...
YIKES will be fun to use with the spider stamp...
I think it has lots of potential for ATC's etc...
and it will be fun for "out of the box" projects...

Love the flower...you probably knew that...

the White's Pills...
small enough for an ATC...
great for a get well card...
"25 cents" fits the memo pins...
it's got straight lines...making it easy to stamp, cut out & make dimensional...

and the 2 sayings flat out make me laugh...
they will be fun to cut apart & use just the individual words too...

I used the bottom saying for a book #4 project...
it's a really a detailed FUN layered piece...

and how true...shopping cures!

I had quite a few emails asking about where to find the plant stake I used in the last post...
look in the garden section of stores (Home Depot, Lowes...those kinds of places), if you are in a warm weather area now...
don't look in Illinois...we still have snow blowers in ours grrr...
they are also easy to find by doing a Google search...

so there you have it...my first baby...

I'll be waiting to hear your thoughts...

you talk...

while I...
make art!
wendy
ps...tomorrow #2! stay tuned...

I think the part I will use the most is the "contains 7 1/2 prct alcohol".
I can think of several uses for that one already.

I love this already, and I am sure it - and the other 13 - will be going on my "must have" list (rather than just the wish list, lol!)
