stamps, boxes & birds...

it's 2 on Tuesday...again!

today I have 2 brand new studio 490 stamp sets to giveaway, to 2 different blog commenters...
compliments of TED & MICHELLE!

so if you'd like to win...
HE RULED IT ART...
leave a comment...



and if you'd like a chance to win...

BELIEVE IN ART...
just leave a comment...



again...
the winners will be chosen @ 7am Chicago time, tomorrow Wednesday July 27th...

I mentioned yesterday that even though it was 99 degrees here with 99% humidity, I am in full spring cleaning mode...

I need to make room in the studio for things I use every day...
and have them close by, in the drawers right behind me...

things like new art parts...

all tim's new flippin awesome distress stains are in a cute box, right on my island...
I waited sooooo long for them,
I can't let them out of my sight...

if you think I'm kidding...
I'm NOT!

so the 2 giant drawers behind where I stand look like this...
FULLLLLLL of alphabets & numbers in all sorts of different fonts...
some metal...
some chipboard...
some fabric...

all perfect condition...

and I have LOTS...
here's drawer #2...


I really need the space & I need to part with them...

here's the scoop...

I divided them up into 12 MEDIUM sized USPS priority boxes...
and then filled the boxes to max capacity...

the assembly line looked like this...
they are FULL...

in addition to LOTS of alphabets & numbers...
I filled the boxes with extra class supplies from my retired classes...

so...lots of stamping surfaces...
tags...
(NO PAPER)...

lots of chipboard (think Maya Road)...

some fragments...

some ribbon & MORE...
and there are also 2 of these guys in each box...

I don't have enough to use for another class, so they are leaving, headed to new homes...
once you create 1, you'll want to do a second...

so there are 2 in each box...


this was one of my most favorite classes ever...

here's a few photos I found...
these guys are perfect for altering...
and so much fun with a million possibilities...


with stamps, grunge...

and plenty of metal embellishments...


the PO charges $11.00 for priority tracked shipping
and the box is $29.00.

making the total $40.00.

if you'd like one, just send an email to me...
wbv1213@me.com ***EDIT*** 11am..
ALL 12 are SOLD & headed to new homes. THANKS MUCH!

and I'll send you a PayPal request.

we'll keep this to US addresses...
international shipping would be high *I think*...

here they are again...



now about yesterday's stamp winner...

congrats to...

Blogger Shannon said...

When I lived in West Virgina we had an air strip on our property for those guys who spray the crops amd you're right, they really fly low, it freaks you out when you watch them.

I'm always looking for products (i.e. stamps) that will make good artwork for the men in my life, you know because I have so many, ha-ha (big joke). Mostly for my Father and Step-Father.

Love all the new products Wendy, you are developing quite a line of products, they are all so spectacular. Thanks for the opportunity to win something.

I just love your new stamp sets. The little boy in Art for Men is so cute. He would look good on a card chasing Tim Holtz' Jalopy (made to look like a taxi). Don't work too hard cleaning out your studio - - you want to save energy to . . make art!

Best wishes

Cardgenie said...

Great opportunity to win - thanks Wendy. It must have been very hard to part with the content of those drawers - I know what it's like - you buy stuff and can't bear to use it! keep on makin art. Jean.xx

Mary said...

I love that your link went straight to the Vermillion color of Archival. I just ordered some of that from SSS yesterday. Can't wait to get it! I want all the colors too! =) Oh yes, and thanks for the chance to win more stamps.

texasbarb said...

I'm such a dolt...got busy yesterday (Monday) and forgot to check out your blog. I remember living in rural Iowa and seeing the crop dusters...they have to be half crazy to fly like they do.

And...got here to late today to get in on the boxes of goodies. I just know they were filled with so much fun for the lucky 12 who jumped on them.

SusanHnSC said...

You have the coolest stuff!! Thanks for sharing your art!!!

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

Dam I would have jumped at the chance to take one of those birds home. Love your stamp sets and I would love to give them a new home. Tracy x

rhonda said...

Happy days are giveaway days and LOVE your stamps!

Nicole said...

Oh Poo...I missed getting a goodie box. I guess I need to check in more frequently! I really wanted the fishy stamps but I love them all! It would be nice to win a set since I'll probably be buying them all anyways!

Stacie (craft-princess) said...

Gosh...I'm always late for getting in on your packages! :( Maybe next time! Congrats to the winner too and thanks for a chance to win one of those stamp sets!

Roxanne said...

I can't believe your 12 boxes got sold sooo fast. (Actually, yes I can!) I am sorry I missed out. Maybe I will win one of the other give-aways! It would be such an honor and a thrill!

Kathy Eddy said...

Congrats to Shannon! I just read this on my break and wanted to order a box of goodies, but am already too late. Boo-hoo! Oh well, maybe you'll pick me as the winner tomorrow. Thanks for the chance!

Marissa said...

Those drawers look amazing. It seems so sad to me to have them all broken up, but it sounds like they are going to good and eager homes :) Thanks for all the wonderful products!

Linda said...

my head is swarming-how do you do it.

SannaS said...

i love what you've done with the birds, they look awesome!! =)
thanks for the chance to win!!
hugs, SannaS

Heidi said...

I think your new stamp sets are your favorite so far for me. I told my sister about the "big girl panties" stamps, and even she agrees they are must haves! (she's the athlete).
Believe in art is another one of my favorites. The quotes fit so many things in life. Right now I'm less than 2 weeks away from my first triathlon, and "she was certain she could, so she did". And "she believed she could be whatever she wanted to be". seem fitting for that.

Who am I kidding, I can't wait to play with them ALL!!

Sad I missed the birds though.

Margaret Kane Ward said...

Thanks for a chance at more stamps!!! I'm sorry that I hadn't seen the post sooner; those boxes looked great! Thanks for all the lovely art/inspiration, Wendy.

Cathy L. said...

Trash to treasure, thanks for the givaways.

I have recently become a fan of your stamps - would love to win!

Love both set of stamps. I checked to late for yesterday give away, and to early today for the boxes. I hope my luck is better on the stamp set.

sue said...

Here we go I would like to try for 2. Thanks for the drawings. It's always fun to see who wins.

Julie said...

Congrats to the winner and congrats to those who got those cool boxes of goodies. Don't you just love those wooden birds! Great stamp give-a-ways. I always love the lamp post and art sayings!

Elaine A said...

Hi Wendy -

Love those stamps set. I'm really digging the mustache on He Ruled It Art set, and love the sayings on Believe in Art. You always come up with such awesome sentiments.

Elaine Allen

Well shoot...I missed out on your kits!!! Those birds are just the cutest! Thanks for the chance to win these new stamps and art parts! By the way, on last night's news (quad cities) there was a report of a crop dusting helicopter crashing and killing the pilot. I guess there were lots of people watching because it was a helo and they had never seen one dusting crops...too bad.
