favorites on Friday...

I actually have LOTS of favorites...
there's a surprise...
NOT...

but today I'll show you a new favorite...
ART PARTS FRAME and...
another NEW studio 490 stamp set...

and I think I'll throw in a second art parts reveal!
yippee...it's THE weekend! let's celebrate!

one of my MOST favorite art parts that we currently have is the pocket watch...

so I thought...why not make it larger?

this guy has grown to 5 1/2 inches in diameter...

I've used it for several CHA samples...
and I can honestly say that I had a BLAST...
I'm thinking this will make a great gift, when family photos are used...

included in the "Timely Pocket Watches" package are...

2 of the solid pocket watch bases...
2 of the coordinating frames &...
2 of the circle cutouts...

this gives you 6 pieces total for...
"making art"...

I laid tim's ruler next to it, to give you an idea of the MEGA size...


moving on to a new stamp set...

this one is "he ruled it art"...

here's a quick tour of the set, starting @ the top...

there's "the flourish" again,
but it's a mirror image of the flourish I showed in this post...
I like the option of having both orientations available...
and stamping both of them creates a cool border...

"OMG"...
I am so excited to see where people go with this one...
it has a million hilarious possibilities, for sure!

"the gentleman"...
also has a coordinating art part...
I've "altered" him in several different projects...
you'll see that next week...
he can wear all sorts of things...

"the lamp post"...
I flat out LOVE this! And it too has a coordinating art part...
be still my heart...

"specimen collected"...
is great to stamp on a tag or on an envelope that contains a specimen...
it's very easy to use portions of this stamp too, by masking it with Post-It notes...

"you ain't seen nothin' yet"...
gives a hint of what's to come...

"the stache"...
I used this on my large queen stamp...
yep...on a girl & it's funky fun...

and...TA*DA...
one of the "ruler stamps"...
this stamp has a perfectly sized art part, so no more need to chop up pricy vintage rulers...
I like this stamped in jet black archival...
then inked in any color, with distress inks added to the edges, to create an authentic looking vintage ruler...
and the best part...
in ANY color your project requires...
very fun, if I do say so myself...

here's what "he ruled it art" looks like on the storage sheet...


I've been so excited to show this next art parts package of goodness...

meet "mustaches, men & more"...

yes...
that hand is giant...like 3 3/4 inches tall...
so it has plenty of space to stamp a saying!

I wanted to show you a close up of the art parts lamp post...

I stamped it with jet black archival...
inked over it with walnut stain distress ink...
inked the little window area with mustard seed distress ink,
then added rock candy distress stickles for some vintage shimmer...



hmmm...
do I see a hint of another new stamp in the peek above?
