another day...

another new stamp set...

this one is called
accents for art...



the flowers @ the top are art parts too...
I LOVE the detail...
the centers are fun to stamp & cut out & then use with other flowers...

totally flipping' awesome...
I like this for cards...
good for lots of occasions....

the corners are art parts too...
turned upside down...
they make...

REALLY funky HAIR!

they look cool overstamped with the screen background...

handmade is best...
oh so true...
good for the back of cards...
and sized to fit the art parts hands,
for the front of projects...

the giant collage background...
I've had a blast with this one...
it's like 99 stamps in one...

use it whole for a background for large flowers & residences...

stamp it several times & cut the individual sections & layer them...

use any combo of stripes...

the stripes also make a good border...

and I've been using the individual stripes for small flowers...
and the art parts bird below...
just ink the stamp & press the art part onto the inked area...


now on to some new embellish your art...

BLOSSOM BUCKET FAVORITES...
YIPPEE!!!

one of my most favorite of the current
art parts sets is the residences...

I have a LOVE for houses,
as evidenced on my blog header...

so...I designed some fun pieces to use with the houses...

SHUT the FRONT DOOR...

now, remember the
BLACK METAL CORNERS
I showed yesterday?

they allow the option for the shutters to be dimensional...
NOT glued down flat...

I'll show you...

and for sure we needed a roof...
which also fits the faces as a funky hat!


and some open windows...
good for letting faces show thru...
or for adding window trimmings...
like lace curtains...


and if you don't want any window peekers...
use the black window...
keep your residence top secret...


so here's how the shutters look when used with the
BLACK METAL CORNERS...
one side of the corner gets glued under the base & the other side is under the shutter...
see the shadows?


and here's the result...

this is actually the
APRIL "KIT FOR ART"...
so in addition to all the art parts, step out photos & instructions...
the APRIL kit will include the BLACK METAL CORNER, 2 Blossom Bucket shutters & that cutie clear resin bottle...

the kit can be ordered @ CHA & will be sold thru Stampers Anonymous to stores or you can order right from them...
I won't be selling them...

I had fun designing this...

hmmm...where did that large oval come from?
stay tuned...

as you see...
these Blossom Bucket pieces are all a kraft color...
perfect to use as is...

or you can paint them to customize them...

or add alcohol inks...

or add a bit of archival, like I did on the front door...



that's day 12...
2 more to go...

here's a hint of what's coming...
I LOVE ORGANIZING...

I LOVE it almost as much as stamping...

I think THE Container store is like Disneyland...

so I HAVE designed a cool...
very useful...
organizer...

and it's being manufactured by BLOSSOM BUCKET!

I'm EXTRA thrilled about this,
because I was not expecting this to debut until summer CHA...

BUT it arrived on FRIDAY & is headed to California right now...
there's only one prototype...

ONE!

it's so HOT OFF THE PRESS that I haven't seen it yet...
or even a photo...

Cindy said it's exactly what I designed...

so more on that tomorrow...

I gotta hit it hard...

CRUNCH time is here...

gotta...
make more (CHA) art!
