introducing...


studio 490 embellish your art...
by Blossom Bucket...

I'm excited to tell you about my new art adventure, into the embellishment world...

my goal was to design unique embellishments, that would be a perfect fit for my stamps & art parts...

this goal was met!

next, I wanted embellishments that could be used right from the package or that could be easily altered to coordinate with any project you are working on...

another goal met!
the alterables are coming up in the next few days...

I also wanted to make sure they were stylish...
and easy to use...

all these resin pieces were designed with perfectly flat backs, to make it simple to glue them to any surface...

goal met!

and I wanted everything sized so they could be used on cards, ATC's, layouts and on altered art projects too...

YIPPEE! SUCCESS!

and finally...
I wanted to make them reasonably priced...
and I'm happy!...THEY ARE!

there are 40-ish new packages being released @ CHA...
and they will be available in early April...

let me show you 2 today &
I'll be sharing some each day until CHA...

I was IN LOVE with this sewing machine the minute I saw it...
it happened to be the first piece I pulled out of the box when it arrived...

it's very detailed & dimensional on the front, with a nice flat back...

it's 2 inches tall...


and I can show you a little peek here...
it's glued to fabric...

don't pay any attention to those 3 *things* on the bottom...
that's a story for another day...


the very first embellishment I designed was this top hat...
I have wanted one for a VERY long time...

again, it's very dimensional on the front, with a flat back...

I wanted it to look like it was retrieved from a dusty attic...
mission accomplished!


so, that's the first 2 "embellish your art" reveals...

moving on to another new stamp set...

this is set LCS075

and the title is...

CALL IT ART...



here's my thoughts on this set...

the man...
I LOVE him so much & he has a coordinating art part!
you'll see him below...
he's 3 inches tall...

oddity saying...
this opens the door to lots of altered art possibilities...
I have a fun project using it, in the new book...

breaking news...
perfect for the telephone below...
I plan on making fun birthday cards with it...

be different...
again...
I LOVE this for humorous altered art...
I also have a fun stamp in another set that works great with the saying...


here fishy...
this works with the fish stamps & art parts from the previous release...

THE TELEPHONE...
OMG...this is so cool...
it's a 3 - piece art part...
it's 2 inches tall...
I'll show you later...

absolutely ridiculous...
another TRUE saying...
another goodie for altered art...

ticket background...
this is a giant background stamp...
I like it because the tickets can be used individually...
or you can use them to make a vertical border...
or you can make it horizontal border, if that is what you need...

the numbers can be punched out & used with...???
can't say yet...
it's versatile ...I like that..

so there is set #2...
CALL IT ART...

I hope you like it as much as I do...

now, here's the match made in heaven...

the new guy is sporting a vintage top hat...

*do not pay any attention to that item peeking out...
please
ignore it*...

and here's what the telephone looks like stamped on the 3 coordinating art parts...

I added a simple coiled wire to the phone...
I LOVE it!

I used it in book #6 for a cool stand alone piece...
can't wait to share that...



THANKS so much for the sweet comments & emails about yesterday's stamps...

you made me happy!

ok...let me know what you think...

I'll be waiting for comments while I...

make art!
