introducing...9 NEW studio 490 stamp sets...



happy Monday & again...
THANKS SO MUCH
 for your enthusiasm...
sounds like lots of you have been wanting individual background stamps...
we aim to please!

before we start, I got quite a few questions...

some I have answers for...
some not...
let start with 

question #1...how much are the backgrounds?

answer...$10.95

question #2...how will we store them?

answer...I haven't seen the final packaging yet...
but just as soon as I do, I'll post the scoop here
but...
for sure 
4 backgrounds will fit on the white storage sheets,
 that my stamp sets come on...

they have NO images printed on them & you can store 2 backgrounds on the front & 2 on the back...

so all 8 new backgrounds fit on just 2 sheets, 
that are the same size as my large stamp sets...

the plain sheets are also awesome for keeping track of clear stamps...
again they hold a ton,
 because you can use both sides...

it's quick & easy to flip thru the pages...

question #3...will there be a binder for the smaller sets...

answer...yes! 
we have had a small binder since I introduced the first small sets a few years ago...

question #4... what is the cost of the small sets?
answer...$17.95

question #5...when are the stencils, stamps & new art parts shipping?
answer...I don't have that info just yet...
but I do know they are working really hard in Cleveland...
just as soon as I get a shipping date from Ted, 
I will let you know for sure...

question #6...please tell me we can purchase ALL your backgrounds individually now.

answer...I don't have a definite answer...
but...if you think about this, there's only so much room for stores to display product...
with this release of 8 new backgrounds, that brings the total background count to close to 50...
that would take a large display area...
but, as my mom used to say...
we'll see what develops...

question #7...will you be doing a project book again? if now now when? soon?

answer...hmmm...
no plans for that right now, but never say NEVER...

NOW...

TIME FOR NEW STAMPS!!!
ok...
instead of telling you how much I LOVE each one...

I'll get this out of the way now...
I LOVE ALL OF THESE SETS...
A LOT!

phew...
ok...

remember...
these are all the small sets today...

first up...
art comforts...
fun sayings & a cute bunch of "weeds"  with a flower...
good for all occasion cards...
and to create a scene...


this set is...

the purpose of art...
a wonderful large flower, that's easy to cut out for layering...
 and plenty of sayings...


check out...
sassy art...

I squeezed 7 sayings on this set...

check out the top left corner...

I have to say the second from the bottom has been so fun!



this next set is called...
forever art...

look...
yippee...
NEW FLOWERS...
and my most favorite...
geranium...
along with some lovely sentiments...


introducing...
metro art...

Edgar is one handsome dude 
& everyone loves a conductor...
it must be the uniform...

I REALLY LOVE the large vintage train schedule...
it's dated 1901 & has someone's handwriting on it...
she wrote "underground of Paris", 
so this is cool with the Eiffel Tower stamp 
& art part & a whole lot more...
I've been using it as a background for my art parts flowers & leaves...
and as a filler for art journal pages...
the tiny text is perfect!



more vintage finds inspired this set...
it's called
 new york art...

I've been using the "red book" as a background for small art parts flowers...
stay tuned...

I LOVE the graphics on that one...
we can use the "school of art" as a big background or use just portions of it...




I will never have enough LOVE sentiments...

this set is called

lovely art...

I think this cute couple is 
wait for it...

charming...


I'm on a roll & LOVING needing wanting more flowers...
this set is...

garden art...
so much fun to color with the distress markers...

I did a small art journal using all these new flowers...
I had so much fun...

I've been wanting "you've got mail" for a long time...
so I squeezed it in on this set... 

never send a naked envelope...


tags are HOT...
so I thought we needed some fun tag stamps...

this set is the last new set & it's a goodie...

it's...
tag art essentials...

I totally love this set to bits...

for those who are concerned with messy tag backs...

you can stamp...

"please excuse the mess...
I'm very busy making art"

or...if the house isn't spotless...
this stamp will come in handy for conveying your thoughts...

I did a framed version...
lol...



so that's my 9 small sets for this release...

I can honestly say that sample making has been
 a flippin' BLAST...

***********
I have a GIVEAWAY...
it's a seat in Claudine's big picture class...

nothing I like better than...
techniques...


and look at the format she uses...
cute printable recipe cards...



I contributed a fun project, 
based on the technique Claudine assigned...

the class starts TODAY...
so I'll be back tomorrow morning with the winner...
just leave a comment...
it's simple...

and speaking of winner...
