a set a day...#7...

wow...
after this post, we're half way thru the new stamp set reveals...
YIPPEE!
this has been so much FUN...

A MILLION THANKS for all the wonderful comments...
I sincerely appreciate each & every one of them...

today is another of the small sets...
that leaves one more small set after this...
& it's a flipping blast...
I can't wait to show you, because it has 2 coordinating art parts...
OMG! phew...gets me sooooo excited...

ok, back to today's rubber fun...

this set is called...
ART IN BLOOM...
Rick named this set...
just thought you should know that tidbit...




let's begin with the scallop border...
I am TOTALLY addicted to scallops...
I didn't realize it until I looked @ my lineup of CHA projects and noticed it...
most of them have a scallop of some sort...
very interesting...
hello...
take a look @ the stamp storage sheets...
scallops!
duh...why did I not see that before?

anyway, that's why I designed this scallop border...
it can be stamped vertically or horizontally...

the little dots in the center make is very easy to add a bit of hand stitching...
just follow the evenly spaced holes...

even if you don't normally sew,
it couldn't be easier...

the holes also make it easy to add perfectly spaced pearls..

the border size is good for ATC's...

the solid flower on the left was designed to fit our current flowers...
it fits several of them...

it can also be used alone with other stems...
or...
stamped multiple times,
it makes a cool background stamp...
I want to emboss it...
I've been wanting something like this for a long time...

I LOVE this next flower...
it's about 4 inches tall...
I LOVE the postal center...
it fits a circle punch...

the center is the perfect size for the those little cutouts from the art parts spools...

you can either press the little circle onto the inked stamp or stamp it on a scrap, punch the circle & glue it to the art part...
save those scraps to make quick & easy flower centers!

the flower can be masked off & the stem can be used with other flowers...
or just the opposite...
use just the flower with other stems...

it's fun to stamp on grunge & layer...
like this...

stop the press!
could that possibly be another new art part?
YOU BET!

I flippin LOVE the saying...
I LOVE the font...
I LOVE what it says...
what else can I say...
I totally LOVE it...

"specimen" fits with lots of other stamps...
evidence of art etc...
it too is sized for ATC's...

and...
thank God...
UPS understands that this REALLY IS...
EXTREMELY URGENT...
it sure is...

it was FULL of...
MORE...
ART PARTS...
be still my heart...



7 down...
7 to go...

stop back tomorrow...
not sure what I'll show...
maybe___ or possibly _____???

I hope your Sunday is FULL of ART!

Rick is off to the grocery so that I can...
head to the studio to...

make art!
wendy
ps...I get a 3 hour lunch break today...
GO BEARS!
