we all NEED...


supplies for ART!



this set of stamps was inspired by our vintage finds...
and it's perfect for mini books...
art journals & dimensional art...

starting @ the top left...
a vintage pen nib label...
works with the pen & the art part pen nib...

3 star label...
punch out the stars to fit tim's charm clips & memo pins...
or use it as a label...
duh...that's obvious...

diamond inks label...
nice size...
about 3 inches tall...
a perfect fit for the

the pen...
it is an art part too & is stinkin'...CUTE!
use the silver dabber on the nib area & ink the rest of the pen...
CUTE!

rubber stamp ink bottle...
yes...I DO have a *thing* for bottles...
this is a cool shape & it's an art part too...

Campana Art Co label...
nice & easy to stamp & cut out...

paint vial...
this is an art part too...
perfect to use alone & it's sized to fit right over the label...

the Flo-master ink can...
I LOVE this thing...
it's an art part too...
I'll show you...

and finally...
the rubber stamp...

this is sooooo fun...
it's a 2 piece art part...

the whole thing is an art part & the second piece fits right over the bottom section...

lookie...

here's what the art parts look like when inked & stamped...

and I've been HOOKED again on embossing...
I bet I've used
on 20 CHA art pieces...

embossing is what HOOKED me to start stamping...
and I think it's still magic when the powder melts...



moving on to today's
BLOSSOM BUCKET beauties...

I am totally IN LOVE with this bouquet...


and the dress form...
perfect for those sewing themed projects...


and all caps...

YES...I'm yelling...

introducing BLACK METAL CORNERS...
also from Blossom Bucket...

now these may not be as cute as the embellishments above...
but I am OVER THE MOON thrilled with them...

use them ONCE & I guarantee you will be addicted...
they have so many fun possibilities...



here's the deal...
the corners come in 2 lengths...
3 1/2 inches & 8 inches...

and I designed them to allow us to create stand alone projects...

and to be able to create sturdy shelves for our art...

they are a nice strong metal...
black on both sides...
dull finish...
exactly what I wanted...

they can be attached by gluing them in place...
they can be attached with brads...
or eyelets...
or glued between art parts ...
think rulers...

need a hole in the corner to hang charms?
tim's drill punch works like a charm...
lol!

need to trim the corner to a custom size?
these corners are easy to trim with tim's tonic scissors...

they were also designed for the products I'll show you tomorrow...

so, in the photo below...

you'll see the
small art parts flower pot, with the BOUQUET...
standing on the black metal corner...
which is the shelf...


if you scroll back up to the colorful art parts photo...
you'll see the corner used as a shelf there too...

but...these corners also allow us to create stand alone art...
perfect for sitting on a shelf, table or mantle...
and it creates the option for more dimensional wall art too...

on the piece below, you don't see the corner...
but it's what connects the art parts together to make a nice sturdy stand alone piece...





so...corners on book covers...
to create standing art...
as shelf supports and I'll show you something REALLY cool tomorrow...

until then...
I'll be

mak(ing) art!
wendy
ps...I'll be waiting to hear what you think!
