studio 490 #1 reveal & a tutorial...

before we head on to the new goodies...
I wanted to share, a tutorial that I did for Ranger...

it's called 
"perfectly double stamped backgrounds" 
and it uses 2 of my favorite products...

the technique is fun, because it uses the 
Perfect Pearls Mist in a unique way...

combined with the secret ingredient...
one we all have...

WATER!

you can see the scoop here...
give it a try...
it's fun...

ok...first of the 10 new stamp sets...
this is called...

TALES OF ART...

it's a little sweet, a little sassy...
and a little funky too...

click for a larger photo...



I LOVE this face!
and she is an art part too...

the sayings on this set are...

DRAMA QUEEN IN TRAINING...
this is a little funky...
I have a few friends in mind for this one...
lol...

THE FOUNDATION OF THE HOME
 IS LOVE...
a little sweet...

LET'S MAKE THIS SIMPLE 
& ASSUME I'M RIGHT...
a little sassy!
I *think* I *may* have said this a time or 12...

OH THE TALES SHE COULD TELL...
I did something REALLY fun with this one...
it uses some new Blossom Bucket goodies, so I can't show it yet...

I INTEND TO GROW OLD GRACEFULLY, 
BUT PROBABLY NOT TODAY...
LOTS of funky possibilities...

and at the bottom of the storage sheet is a nice sized background stamp...
it's a vintage 25 cent coupon for 
THE BELMONT RESTAURANT...
there are lots of words that can be used individually too...

back to the face...

she's stamped on the coordinating art part, then clear embossed & her hair is inked with tim's brushed corduroy marker...

my Blossom Bucket mini lips are a perfect fit...

I used barn door distress ink on the craft nib to add a bit of blush...
and another nib to add some eyeshadow with broken china...

Rick named her Betty...


and here's a peek @ Betty,

this style of the mini glasses fit her too...

the reading glasses look cool upside down & embellished with black soot distress stickles...



next up...

first of the 19 new Blossom Bucket trinkets...
it's a
PLACE SETTING...

I adore these...

they are perfect fit for
  THE BELMONT RESTAURANT stamp...

all our old family photos seem to have been taken in the kitchen...
so I thought they would be fun for scrapbookers & for collages...

all 3 pieces have completely flat backs, making them simple to glue...

I'm using them as knobs on mini books...
won't a recipe book be fun?

or on an invite to lunch...

and I also used them as arms & legs...
yes...out of the box,
but really fun...
they worked well...

need a spoon for the
I got it covered...

they look like tarnished sterling, but all the Blossom Bucket pieces are resin...
the fork is 3 1/4 inches long...

here's #1...
PLACE SETTING...


the photo below shows that
I'm totally back to basics & LOVIN' clear embossing...

here's a section of the art parts 5 panel frame
with the saying embossed...
making it so easy to color LOVE with the black soot distress marker...

and I used just the fork to accent this art...


ok...
I was "sleepless in Oglesby"...
up early to show you my first new babies...

I'm anxious to hear your thoughts...
in the meantime,
 it's back to the studio to...

make art!
wendy

PS ...don't forget to pop over to Ranger & try stamping with Perfect Pearls mist...

see you tomorrow for day #2...

Betty looks like she's keepin' her cool in all this IL heat. No sweaty Betty! The new BB pieces are divine and to hear that more art parts coordinate with your stamps is great news.

Heidi said...

Betty is of course to die for. The fact that she has a coordinating art part is just icing on the cake. If the other new stamp sets are anything compared to this one...all I can say is Oh Boy....

Oh I just love these new additions! The place setting is genius! But, I must say the stamp set is a must have as well. I'm such a quote gal, and love them all!!!

Sandy Small said...

Nice!

Silverware is so everyday - of course there are places to use it! Like the stamps; although its not sassy when you ARE always right (unless someone points out you were wrong once or twice - or just possibly 3 times!).
And I can see why "Betty" fits!

Anita Houston said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! The utensils are the bomb!!! Love the stamps as well!!!!

Stephanie Rodgers said...

I just had to catch up on all your posts ... I've been at the Scrapbook Expo with my little buddy, Andrea. Then, spent two days with two of my sisters. Can't believe all the posts I've missed. Love the peeks and the new stamp set! Lovin' the tableware too! So stinkin' cute!

Lesley said...

Betty rocks!! She looks like an old screen siren!! And i'm loving the new liccle cutlery!

Eileen Bellomo said...

I love Betty! I was just looking at my mom's high school yearbook and most all the girls had that look. Love it.
Of course, the cutlery is to die for, and the ability or willingness to cook is not necessary, LOL.

PlumTuckered's Paper Plays said...
