answering a few quick questions...

I've gotten some questions several times, 
so I thought I'd do a quick Q & A here...

#1...OMG...love the bags, but I can't find them at Stampers Anonymous...
...HELP...and how much???

the accessory bags are from Ranger
NOT Stampers Anonymous...
your local store or
 fav on line can order them for you from RANGER...
the price is a very reasonable
$10.00 each...


#2...is it possible for you to show what the inside of that bag looks like? does it have sections?

here's the inside of the bag...
it's completely open,
 so you have a million options for using it...

from art supply storage to transporting supplies
 to a makeup bag...
how fun!

be thinking about gifts for friends...

just saying'...
the holidays are closer than you think!



#3...what is the size difference with the 2 hosta stamps?

here's the side by side comparison...
the new large is on the left...
the original cute mini is on the right...
I wanted a large size to use with 
the new larger flowers from this release...

LOVE them both!



#4...Thanks for sharing the catalog with us. I enjoyed taking a look. Is it correct that the mat mini pine trees come in both black and white, but the holly minis only come in white?

YES...that's correct...
 I like the black trees for 
 or for using with metallic embossing pastes 
and with 

we needed white trees to show off the ink colors and different stamps/stencils...

the white look really cool too, when used with embossing folders...

I made the holly/berries package white only, 
so that we could use
I tried them in black...
they didn't thrill me, 
so the holly/berries package is white only...

#5...I especially loved the watering can example you shared. Is that done on a canvas, it's hard to tell? Does that alcohol technique work on canvas? Do you have a tutorial for that piece?

YES...it is on a 4 x 6 inch canvas panel...
they are really fun & inexpensive...
YES..the archival ink/rubbing alcohol technique does work really well on canvas...



and...
just you wait to see what else I discovered...
TOTALLY unexpected...
(scientifically) it shouldn't work...
but it does...

I LOVE figuring out new ways to use things...

and...it's coming soon...

like next week on the Ranger blog...
I just finished the tutorial...
I'll keep you posted here...

THANKS SO MUCH 
for all the comments, emails & messages about my new release...

I am totally thrilled with how everything turned out & I'm happy that YOU like them too!

ok...
that's it for today...

please come back tomorrow...
I'll be over on the Simon Says blog to celebrate STAMPtember with them...

and I'll have a SPECIAL code 
to use if you decide NEED to SHOP...

have a fun day...

make art!
