FINALE Friday...

happy FINALE Friday to you...

thank you so much for allowing me to tease about new products...
I hope it was fun...

today...the teasing is OVER...
this is the final new stamp set...

it's #12 and it's called...

"dressed for art"...

I adore this gentleman...he has attitude!
not only is he a stamp, but he also has a coordinating art part...
just ink your stamp & lay it rubber side UP on your table...
press the gentleman art part right onto the inked stamp...
lift & in 5 seconds you have created a custom accent for your art...

out of clutter is a saying I love...
I like the font combo too...

if you read yesterday's post...
I TOLD you I'd bring back memories...
don't make me turn this car around!

embrace. the. adventure.
simple...
use just EMBRACE on lovey dovey cards...

live. your. best.
another simple saying...
it's easy to use these words individually too...

keep your eye on the prize...
this is something Ted (Mr. Stampers Anonymous) says all the time, and that explains his name under the quote...
keep your eye on the prize...
work hard & have success!

the giant background...
is another vintage flea market find...
it was falling apart, but with help from the computer genius Zach @ Stampers Anonymous...
we now have a fun new background...

I like this one because it has some open space & that way another background can be stamped over it, without being lost...

you should always be...

dressed for art!



OMG...FINALLY...

look @ this cutie...

this new art part frame is a biggie...

it's 5 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches...
and it can be used horizontally or vertically...

finally I can show you my favorite...

film strip frames...


as you can see above, there are 2 complete film strip frames included in the package...
for 6 pieces total...

the cutouts give you 2 extra solid bases to use for art...
OR...you have 2 pieces to make a book...
even though art parts are solid & sturdy,
the CROP-A-DILE punches thru art parts like magic...

I've done several projects with this film strip frame...
in love...seriously in love with it...
there is a fun project included in book #5...
which makes a great gift...

I'm thinking scrapbookers can add family photos for a great holiday gift item...
it's NEVER too soon to start working on gifts...
it's not that far away...

I combined today's new stamps & art parts to make this...


did it bring back a memory & make you laugh?

I have another art share today...
this next piece is a tribute to Ted & I'll tell you why...

he is special...
he is a Shriner's crazy cop...thus the hat...

I used his quote on the new art parts hand...
and when you check out the art parts ruler @ the bottom...
keep in mind that
Ted's dad originally started Royal Acme with the typesetting process...
so, lots of significance for Ted...

this was fun...

oh...and did you notice that I used the new mini mustache art part as his ascot?

and tim's light bulb as the doorknob with the new art parts door plate?

since today is Finale Friday...
I thought this was appropriate...

the back of book #5...



it's true...
I DO love a day with a happy ending...

now when is all this stuff shipping?

Ted said the stamps are READY...
they have LOTS of sets done & ready to ship...

and they have been working on art parts for over a month...

but...keep in mind that whoever orders first, gets their order shipped first...

so, if a store orders after CHA...
keep in mind that CHA orders ship first...
so if your store owner is attending CHA, they can place their orders there & get quick shipping...

I see that my 2 favorite shopping spots both RUN to be among the first to place orders & be @ the top of the shipping list...
they wave when they RUN by...

I'm sure that Heidi @ Simon Says & Daisy @ eclecticPaperie will let me know when their orders have arrived & rest assured...

I WILL let you know the minute I hear that stamps & art parts are in the house...

book #5 is last on the list for shipping...
but that's ok...
get your stamp supplies first & you'll be READY to make some fun projects...

my *guess* is that book #5 should be ready
around September-ISH...
I'll keep you posted on that too...

I will try to TWEET from CHA...
so if you follow me on twitter, you'll see some project photos...

again...
thanks so much for your friendship & support of studio 490...

I'm anxious to hear which ONE stamp set is your favorite...

and which ONE art part set is calling to you...

YIKES...
there's not much time left to...

make (CHA) art...

My favorite stamp set is He Ruled in Art. Love the face on the man. It is hard to pick a Art Parts. I really like the larger frames. The Pocket Watch is awsome. Now I just have to wait for them to ship to my local scrap book store. Thanks Wendy.

Every tease brings a new favorite so if I have to choose one , well I cannot.....I must have them all !!! Sorry to be a bad player of the game, I know you said choose one however , this old gal cannot. So if I am disqualified, then it is my own "lovin your art ideas, stamps and art parts" fault.... not one - ALL !!!

Kirsten Alicia said...

You are funny, asking us to pick just one!!! :) Love this set as well & your creations are wonderful.

snazzyoriginal said...

Well you certainly saved the best for last - I don't really want a new man (it has taken me so long to train the one I've got I couldn't possibly start again lol!) but do I feel that gent needs to live in my workshop. The film strip project is just fabulous too. As ever, many thanks for all the wonderful inspiration, will be avidly following CHA tweets. Have a ball.

stamp set--the man with the cane; art part--the bigger stop watches--I loved working with the originals and can't wait to try the new ones. What I love about your posts Wendy is reading your enthusiastic description of each of your new additions to your family of Studio 490 art.

Absolutely wonderfully inspiring new goodies Wendy. As usual I'm going broke just thinking about buying it all, but I suppose that's what us mixed media artist's do right? Have fun at the CHA show. Your artwork and your products just get more amazing with each new year.

Hi Wendy, I've followed your blog for a while but I just bought my first Art Parts yesterday while I was at a scrapbook expo (I thought Florals was a good place to start), as well as my first Distress Stains (I made sure to get Wild Honey since I've heard you RAVE about it =P). I can't wait to play! Have fun at CHA!

stampinfranni said...

Wendy, I love ALL your new stamps and art parts. There's no way I can pick favorites.
Have a safe trip and have fun. Wish I was going to be there.

Angie said...

Okay, so can I just say that if I didn't believe so strongly that your amazing talent & inspiration are God-given, I'd almost have to think you are evil? Seriously? Pick ONE favorite? Too many too choose. Already put my change in the jar to start saving my pennies, LOL. Thanks for the teaser, Wendy!

Wendy, "Tribute to Ted" is absolutely wonderful! Could you please, please share supplies, instructions and the coloring technique you achieve so beautifully. Or, is it available in Book #5. I am so hooked on this project! Thank you for the inspiration to Make Art!

Linda M. Walsh said...

Wendy, life is so busy, however, this morning I made time to look over all your new art parts and stamps. They are Sensational!!!
