more new studio 490...

today's post takes a bit of an intro before we get to the stamps...

we're changing things up 

big time 

listening to your requests...

you asked...

so...

my giant background stamps will be sold individually!

so many people who are not really stampers...
but love the gelli plates, 
have asked for just background stamps, 
to create patterns & texture for gelli plate art...

these backgrounds are red rubber & cling, 
just like all my stamps...
and they are the usual giant size...

the cling style allows us to use them thru stencils easily...
perfect!

backgrounds are probably my most favorite stamps...

without further ado...

introducing...

top left...
is...
fancy florals... 
and bottom right fancy flourishes...

click to make the images larger...








top left is called
from A to Z...

and the bottom right is ornate dots...





next up...
top left is 
reverse dots

and bottom right is vintage mesh...





and the last 2...

top left is the
vintage pricing chart
and bottom right is called 
vintage tapestry...




have I had fun with them?
OH YES!!!

do I have samples of each background to share...
boohoo...
not quite yet, 
because there's too many "secrets" on the samples...
but soon!

so...how does this change affect my new stamp sets?

in addition to these 8 new backgrounds...

I designed 2 large stamp sets and
9 of the smaller sized sets...

you'll see on the storage sheet that
 the large sets have LCS preceding the number and
 the smaller sets have SCS preceding the number...

today I'll share the 2 large sets...


remember my new favorite word?

this set is titled...
charming art...

it's 3 lovely ladies with attitude & 7 fun sentiments...

click to enlarge the photo to read them...


and the second large set is called...

art chronicles...
it's designed for art journals...
cards and more...
I love the bar codes for the backs of our art...

this set is loaded with so many cool images...
there are so many on the sheet 
that Zach had to squeeze the large splat 
way up in the top left corner...

this set is 
so 
much
 fun...





****************************

since I'm not able to share new stamped samples today,
here's a photo of
the gold & silver embossing pastes thru the 2 new stencils...
you can see that the flourishes
work well with just the flower from the "lovely large flower" stencil...
I didn't use the stem...

the metallics are dramatic on a black tag...


and...

have you heard about the new distress markers?
hello...shaded lilac & mowed lawn...
I LOVE you with this flower stamp!





that's it for Friday...
have a wonderful weekend...

I'll be back on Monday with the 9 small stamp sets...

until then, 
I'll be waiting to hear your thoughts on the individual backgrounds & the 2 new stamp sets...

I'm off to...
make art!
wendy

STOP THE PRESS!!

I'll have a jar of my new translucent paste


 for a random commenter...
yes...
bribery to comment!
lol...

Just getting interested in mixed media and think these will be wonderful stamps to experiment with. Thanks for the chance to win the embossing paste. I'm sure that it would be a useful tool in my new attempts at rt.

Mallrat said...

You don't have to bribe me to comment .. I love the individual background stamps, awesome idea. The large sets are sweet too ! have a great weekend Wendy !

Eileen Bellomo said...

LOL! I would have commented even without the bribe....though that clear embossing paste does make me drool.
I think the idea of selling the background stamps is wonderful. I for one, will be on board to get a few or more. They work well with gelli plate printing, and with stencils, and....well, and with anything. :))

Tona said...

Oooh, love all of the stamps!!!
Thanks for a chance to win some coveted translucent embossing paste :)

Stephanie Rodgers said...

The new embossing paste for a comment? How many times are we allowed to post a comment? haha The backgrounds are fab! I'm with you ... backgrounds are my absolute favorites! Now that I have all my 30+ sets stored in my 3 newly made stamp binders, I'm wondering how these backgrounds are stored? Will 2 backgrounds fit on one of your storage sheets? Creative minds want to know!

Kristina M. Anderson said...

Love the new stamp sets. Charming Art is my favorite. Love the ladies. I cannot wait to get this one. Thank you for sharing your lovely new creations!

Yes, yes, yes and yes! I want them all...stencils, background stamps, embossing paste, new stamp sets...

I need to come out of retirement to afford to buy them.
