day 6...


hope you had a good weekend & you're ready for more show & tell...

by far, THE most popular stamp set from the last release was "sentimental art"...

that set has the vintage lace background...

I got lots of requests for more lace type stamps...
and believe me...

I wanted another too...

then came along the Blossom Bucket sewing machine...
now for sure we needed more vintage lace...

introducing...
material art...



seam binding...
we found this @ a flea market...
LOVED it immediately...

easy to cut out with a circle punch...
see that "made in France?"...

it ties in with...

what Eiffel Tower???

acquisition is half the fun...
applies to material art & art supplies...

coming soon to a blog near you...

this is a work in progress...
I like this lots for art journals...
I've use it too with Mr & Mrs Worry...

for your viewing pleasure...
good for mini books...
art journals & more...

tapepax...
stamp in any color to coordinate with your project...
simple to cut out with a circle punch...
good with the sewing theme...

lace border...
again...a vintage find...
it stamps great with awesome detail...

the giant lace background...
this was the starting point for the material art set...

it too stamps with awesome detail...

remember I showed you some $1.oo finds a few days ago?

remember this mini kraft colored book?


here it is, stamped with the lace background & vermillion archival...

i's amazing what a transformation
a little ink & a stamp can make...


and below is an art parts flower that was inked with broken china & stamped with jet black...


I also love the lace stamped over broken china stain with aquamarine archival...
that creates a more subtle background...

next I have 2 new Blossom Bucket flowers to show you...

first up is pointed petal posies...
say that 10 times!

they are another alterable...
use it as is, or add color with alcohol inks...
add distress stickles...

the raised center is easy to swipe with the archival pad to highlight just the raised area too...


and this is shocking...

pink posies...

I LOVE the detail of the flower center...


both of these can be used as flower centers, with art parts flowers or stamps...
or just add a stem for a quick card...

I also used the pink posie to make a simple piece of jewelry...

ok...

that's material art and more Blossom Bucket embellishments...

what are you thinking?

talk to me while I...

make art!

Wendy -

Another wonderful stamp set. Just beautiful! I have to tell you what a genius you are, your embellishments are just so out of this world! I love how dimensional they are, and how flat they are in the back. A home run in my humble opinion!!
