I LOVE these words...

IN STOCK & SHIPPING...
NOW!

seriously makes me HAPPY...

I'm excited and very thankful for the SUPER FAST shipping
 from the fine folks at
STAMPERS ANONYMOUS...
THANKS ALL for your hard work!

I got several emails yesterday...
letting me know that new products have arrived...

Amy from the Scrapbooking Studio (2 locations in Illinois) got her confirmation & will have ALL the new products in tomorrow!

ePaperie has them IN STOCK & ONLINE now...

I'm expecting to hear from Simon Says any moment...

I thought I'd share some random CHA photos...

here's an art journal page, using this favorite stamp & saying...
and several stencils...
including this cute new bird...
I like that stencils allow you to flip it over
 & get the mirror image orientation...

and the new hearts stencil...


here's another art journal page...
with the new polka dotty stencil background...

I love to emboss the flower stamp
then use the distress markers & detail water brush to color it...
the flower makes a great card too,
 for just about any occasion...


next is the cover of the new 
I didn't use the frame on the front...

LOVE the new art parts words...
great fun for mixed media & cards too...
totally LOVE how the 

you can also see how the veins in the leaves are etched right into the art part...

the new Blossom Bucket embellies 
will arrive in just 4 short weeks!
I'm counting the days!
make that MINUTES!


this is the inside of the back cover of the new art journal...

same polka dotty stencil as above,
 but this time I inked the heart stencil, 
then used a mister with water,
 to lift the distress color & create a bleached effect...

the fringe flower is cut from CFArt which I covered with a vintage dictionary page...
the new art parts pen makes a cool border...

did you spot the stamped 490 in the left corner?
that was unplanned & just a fluke...




next up...distress stains...
I demoed these at CHA...
and I *think* I hear lots of distress stain dabbers being opened & poured into misters...

try it with one...

you will LOVE the distress stains in a spray form...
I have NO DOUBT...

you can see them used here...



was our Blossom Bucket make & take 
& she was a huge hit!

it was fun for me to see that some people didn't make her exactly like my sample...
but jazzed her up with more rhinestones...
some gals put the small art parts flower in her hair...

THANKS to...
Ted & Michelle for donating the Betty art parts...
THANKS to...
Tim and Ranger for donating the distress markers, distress stains, awesome archival, Glossy Accents & multi medium needed to assemble Betty...
THANKS to...
 Cindy for supplying the cute glasses & the mini lips...


here's a fun sample using my new embossing paste...
it creates AMAZING texture...
and gives us so many options...

spread it on a background...
then stencil & stamp over it when dry...

or use the paste with a stencil...
it's so much fun...

I especially LOVE the black paste for my main focal point...
and it's great for borders too...

the leaves were done thru the new leaves stencil with white paste, then inked with peeled paint distress stain & the detail water brush...



here's the link to a CHA demo that Ranger just posted...
this shows the embossing paste used several different ways with SPRAY distress & Perfect Pearls...


May Flaum took some great photos 
and has a CHA blog post about studio 490...


THANKS MAY!

I've had several questions about tim's new distress paints, so I thought I'd share why I LOVE them...

they seriously are unlike any paint I've ever used...
the colors are BEAUTIFUL and they dry to an awesome 
matte finish...

MATTE...

perfect MATTE...

sort of like the old milk paint...

the paints react just like distress inks when wet,
 but are 100% waterproof & permanent when dry...

they are very thin...
and can be opaque if used full strength ...
or they can be made semi opaque by adding some water...

there are no fillers in the paint...
so, once dry, you do not feel them on the surface...
pure...
MAGIC...

you can stamp with them & get AMAZING detail...
that's REALLY cool too!

the dabbers will not dry out or get hard & crunchy...

you can use them over ribbon & fabric
 & unlike other paints...
the ribbon & fabric remain soft, 
NOT crunchy & stiff like with normal paint...


they work on every surface that I have tried them on...

think

art parts
Clearly for Art
metal
plastic
glass
fabric
ribbon

you can use them over embossing paste
or mix some in the paste to create custom colors...

you can finger paint with them, and you'll see that they do not stain your hands...

and your fingers can easily be cleaned with water...

DEAR tim & Ranger...
bring on the other 24!
I'll be waiting...

I'll have some fun blog post coming soon using the paints...

NOW...
back to my embossing paste giveaway...

we'll be shipping out embossing paste to...

I have been wanting to get some of the paste to try and I just haven't been able to yet. I'd love a chance to try it out. Sounds like CHA was great, glad you had a good time.

Hi Wendy, I love, love, love your inspirational journal pages & Betty pin. Like many others I am envious of those who were able to go to CHA & attend Tim's amazing distress paint class & try out the new products. So, thank you so much for the chance to win some of your embossing paste to try at home.
