4 for Friday...

try to say that 10 times...
yikes!

I get this question with every new stamp release...

"where do the ideas/inspiration come from?"

most times it's when I'm working on something, 
I think...
duh...we need a________.

or if I had this, we could use it like this...
or...

I wish I had a _____...

sometimes a specific occasion puts a little spark in my brain...

for example, if I need a card for a wedding...
or a funny one for a friend...
or if someone has accomplished something special...

these thoughts resulted in some *items* and stamps for this new release...

coming soon to a blog near you...

keep in mind that NOT every day is good in the studio...
just like every artist friend I speak with, some days there are no ideas...

there's nothing in the studio that inspires me...

nothing!

I hate it, but it happens...
it makes me crabby...
imagine that!...
but now I realize the next day WILL be better and I WILL make more art!

I bet you all can relate...

back to the new release...

 here's another HINT on new stamps...
art journaling is very popular, as are SMASH books...
I had that in mind, when designing this release...

and another...
since I'm IN LOVE with tim's new markers...
LOTS of the stamps were designed to be used with the markers...

as were some of the new art parts...
the distress markers make it so easy to add more detail to stamped art parts...

ok...
on to the peeks...

love the Blossom Bucket top hat on the ___...
is that a new art part?
or 2?

it's the perfect fit...
LOVE IT...

the top hat also fits some new art parts...
ps...and it's so cute!
wait 'til you see...


this next one is pretty obvious...

the Blossom Bucket star was painted with
 the black paint dabber...
you can also easily change it to any color with alcohol inks...




totally IN LOVE with these...
totally...



and the final one for today...
these 2 are more FAVORITES...



I'll see you back here on Monday...
that's JULY 2nd...

the day the reveals start...

I CAN NOT WAIT TO SHOW YOU my new babies!

until then...
stay cool &
make art!
wendy
PS...if you're in the Orlando area this weekend...
Ted will be at STAMPFEST...
he's got the booth LOADED with lots of rubber...
lots of accessories...
and his demos are very FUN!
pop in & give him a hug from me!
