day 9...the voice of art...

thanks so very much for the comments, emails, FB posts & tweets...

I'm THRILLED that you're liking this release...

let me just say...
the best is yet to come...
I had so much fun...
funky to the MAX...

I might save that post for next week...
we'll see what develops...

today we have another set of new stamps...
this set is titled...

the voice of art...




first up is a fun vintage lady...
she is an art part too...
she's a whopping 4 inches tall...

because of her attire...
she fits right in with steampunk...

I immediately thought she looked like a stern teacher...
below she makes an appearance
with yesterdays (art school) stamp set...



the voices only spoke to her...
OMG...I used this the other day
on a REALLY fun & funky piece...
I can not wait to show you...

she thought housework was overrated & certainly NOT for her...
yep...that's me...

this is a good saying to use some of the words individually...

signed, sealed & delivered...
baby I'm yours...
I'll be using this on cards for Rick...

& I've used it with Mr & Mrs Worry...
for funky art...

next is a vintage ink pad...
another flea market find...
I LOVE the graphics on it...
I LOVE that it says St. Louis...

it's simple to cut out & use the whole image...

there's lots of little components that can be used alone too...

...but today...
my favorite thing is to use it
for a background stamp for small art parts...
like flowers...
& the wing below...



and finally a large background stamp...
a vintage receipt...
I girl can NEVER have enough background stamps...

another option is to use just the top portion for a border...

here it is stamped...

hey...GUESS WHAT?

I designed some
Blossom Bucket bottle caps!

I totally flipping love these guys...

I LOVE that they are a dull vintage gold...
I LOVE the dimension...
they are over 1/4 inch thick...
so they don't get lost in
multilayered grungepaper/CFA flowers...

here's the large bottle caps...
I've used them as a flower center right from the package...
I LOVE the worn black center...

you ***might*** have noticed yesterday
that some Blossom Bucket pieces fit in them...
did you?


and they will also be available in a smaller size...
be still my heart!


one of the other things that I have been doing with the bottle caps is punching a circle from an image...

adding that to the bottle caps & then filling them with Glossy Accents, to create custom epoxy embellishments...

LOVE them millions because
you can make anything you need...
be it a word...number...
a perfectly coordinated patterned paper accent ...

I used the bottle caps with some
funky stamped eyes
for a project I'll show you soon...

earlier this week I showed you the pink posies Blossom Bucket pieces...

I found the photo...

here's a SIMPLE gift idea...
I just dropped it in a bezel...
instant jewelry art...




day 9...
the voice of art and
Blossom Bucket vintage bottle caps...

did these speak to you?
(LOL...that fit right in)...

I think I'm inspired to head to the studio to...

make art!
