fab Friday...4 GIVEAWAYS...

let's make this a FAB FRIDAY,
by giving away
4 brand new
hot off the press
studio 490 stamp sets...

but first...
a little project to get you in the mood for Valentine's day...
this has LOTS of my favorite things...

idea-ology lightbulb...I told you I LOVE these things...
sitting in a NEW art parts gear...
LOVE the Blossom Bucket heart & telephone...
and the BB BLACK METAL SHELF...another addiction...


the "register of shipments" is from tim's new destinations paper stash...
the background is graphic 45...



remember...
clicking on the GREEN link,
will magically transport you right to the IN STOCK products...

here's today's first giveaway...
this is called...



the second is...



here's #3...


and #4 is...


and here's some examples of them inked & stamped...

the collage background on the art parts heart...

is the base for this next one...

I LOVE how much difference one extra layer makes...
check out the TAPEPAX image...
the little diamond center is raised...
small detail with a big impact...

the gal's dress was stamped with the
it's a good way to use up paper scraps...
just stamp & layer...


this time she has a dress that was stamped on CFA which I covered with sticky back canvas...

this is done on the

the curio knob is perfect for holding the art parts keys...

the tree stamp is an oldie from my first release...
& I still love it...

and there's the Eiffel Tower...


stamped over kraft with vermillion archival...


and the lace border...
stamped in olive archival...

it's so fun to add stamping on the lips...
makes it look like words are coming out of her mouth...lol!

if you stamp on Blossom Bucket embellishments...
use archival & dry it...
then it's permanent!


the flower, is from accents for art...
I used the telephone dial as the flower center...
and loaded up the art parts fence with

this is the back of the new gatefold journal...



this is like paper dolls for adults...

instead of using the coordinating art part for the flower...
this time I covered my clearly for art with tim's tissue wrap...
using Glue N Seal to attach it...
then inked it with alcohol ink...
heated it...
shaped it...

this creates a fragile looking paper flower...
but it's sturdy, because of the CFA, used for the base...

I used a favorite Blossom Bucket embellishment for the flower center...
I'll be buying LOTS of these...

so...the giveaway scoop...
you have until 7am my time on Monday to leave a comment...

it's simple...
comments win stamps...

just ask...
