presenting...new art parts!


today's post is all about 

my new art parts...

the photos are kind of weird...
the background is large...
sorry...
(computer illiterate!)

but you can easily see what's in each package...

you'll see that the quantities are listed on the insert & tell how many of each piece are included in the set...

I have 8 new art parts sets...

5 can be used with any background stamp,
 for a million possibilities...
use any background you already have...
or with a new favorite...

3 art parts have a coordinating stamp set...

that means the art part is perfectly sized for the stamp...
and gives the art parts amazing detail...

if you've not used art parts before, 
the material is a recycled paper product that is very strong...
much stronger than chipboard...

so strong, that is needs to be laser cut...

because art parts are a paper product, inks, paints, stains & archivals are perfect to use with them...

you can also stencil on them or cover them with patterned paper...

I'm so happy to have more flowers to play work with...

these work well with the new flourishes stencil & can be layered with art parts flowers from past sets...

this is a package of 10...
called
 just flowers...

flowers NEED leaves...
so this is a set of 10 and it's called...

lots of leaves...

this set works well with the new
 just flowers 
and also with art parts flowers we already have...


this just might be my most favorite...

it's a package of 6 art parts tags...
2 of each style...

2 scalloped bottom, 2 with a zig zag & 2 with the inverted V cut...

they can be used alone & they are a GREAT solid base for art...

I sized them larger than #8 tags, 
so that they are the perfect covers 
for a tag art journal...
it's a great way to make something special with all those tags we make...

the middle one, with the V cut, is really fun...
I've been cutting #8 tags down to 5 1/2 inches tall...
try it...
it's only 3/4 of an inch shorter...
but I am in love with this size...
that tiny cut makes a huge difference...
and they are a perfect fit with the V cut art parts tags...

my art parts tag toppers look cute on them too ...


this 6 piece set is called...

create a tag

 the next set is simply called 

banners 

and it has 2 each of 5 different sizes of banners...
for a total of 10 banners...

these work well vertically & horizontally too...

they are fun to stamp with a background stamp 
& the perfect place to stamp your saying/sentiment...

oh wait...
banners might be my favorite...
look how cute Edgar looks...


here's another fun set...
it's called

instaframes

 & was fashioned after those old polaroid photos...
there are 2 complete frames in the package PLUS...
2 of the cut out pieces...

the cut outs can be used as the base for a small project...
they can be layered over larger art parts, to create really dimensional art...

or use the crop-a-dile...
punch holes & create a really cool mini art journal...

use instaframes with the large area on the top, bottom or either side...
very fun...

I LOVE instaframes!



the next 3 sets have a coordinating stamp set...
remember the
charming ladies stamp set?


this set is called...

charming art coordinates 
& has 2 each of 

Elizabeth...
she's on the left...
Rick named her...

Marilyn is in the middle...

and Barbie is on the far right...

she reminds me of a vintage Barbie doll...

these chicks are fashionable & fun...

they can be sweet or sassy...
depending on your need & the saying you choose...





I showed the 
metro art stamp set yesterday...


here's the coordinating art parts set...

it's called 
metro coordinates 
& it has 3 of Edgar & 3 of THE conductor...

great for guy cards... 



and the last new art part set is 

forever coordinates...

I flippin LOVE these 2 flowers...

there are 3 of each flower in the set...
stamp them with Ranger's jet black archival...

so fun to color with distress markers...

you can see the red geranium on the package insert...


the art parts flowers fit perfectly with the 

forever art stamp set...



 8 new art parts sets = a whole lot of fun...

this CHA sample making frenzy has been a BLAST!

I can't wait to show you what I've been doing with all my new products...

J-Lin said...

Great show ole' chapette! WOW, do i love these art parts. Your art style is so distinctive and desirable to translate. We live so close to one another (I'm in Streator), but i have yet to get to take class with you... much to my chagrin. Please keep up the teaching and creating more art parts,stamps,blossom buckets,and anything you can take and put into our stashes and play with.
