  • 21
    Nicole S. (spellsong1977) says:

    It’s so difficult to decideβ€”I’m LOVIN’ the Lemon Tart shade of yellow, and I also can’t wait to make some Father’s Day β€œwallets,” but I think the product I’m most excited about is that multiple-step turtle from Pond Lifeβ€”the cards you’ve all made are FABULOUS! I LOVE multi-step stamps! Thanks so much! πŸ™‚

  • 22
    Jean D says:

    Hi! I love the new sets, colors & paper. I think I learned the most with the wallet. Can’t wait to try that for Father’s Day. My second is the tree. I love the dimension to the tree! Thanks for a fabulous new month!

  • 23

    I can’t wait to try the masculine cards. Those are the ones I struggle with the most and hopefully this will help some. Thanks for such GREAT stamps!

    I love the gel card and can’t wait to try it out. All of the new stamp sets and paper are exactly what I’ve been needing and hoping for. Thanks Nichole!

  • 27
    Robin says:

    Wow – I love the fantastic ideas for masculine cards. Now I can make both my dad and my husband father’s day cards! But – I also loved the post with the gorgeous daisy flower combined with a cuttlebug die. Honestly, I get completely overwhelmed with everything I learn from this site. Absolutely amazing – and I just opened my order from LAST week – my husband will kill me if he sees another box from PTI! So – I NEED to win this!

  • 28
    Beverly Ray says:

    I am just thrilled to see paper and stamps for the men in our lives…I am naturally drawn to all the flowers but we do need to make those special cards for our wonderful guys.

  • 29

    What am I most excited about trying? Two things, actually:
    1) I’ll be trying out other dies from my die-cutting tools to see which ones will fit the new stamp sets
    2) Dotting my brads with a poster paint pen. I have one!!!
    So excited about the new stamp sets and products. I hope I win πŸ™‚

  • 31
    Alyssa says:

    I have to say that I am thrilled about the Father Knows Best set, and I can’t wait to try the “embellished tree” on the card you made. It’s so cool and dimensional, and very masculine! I LOVE IT!

  • 32
    Susan says:

    I’m most excited about the multi-circle stamps – totally a sucker for circles and boxes and things!!! The new colors are great, too!

  • 33
    Barbara says:

    I love the wallet card! I can’t wait to try this card myself – it is so masculine and unique. I’m planning on making it for my hubby, dad and father-in-law : )

  • 34
    Karen Q says:

    I want to make a bunch of paper piecing cards. They are great for all occasions and are gender neutral. Love the colors this month. You always come through and we always want it all. Thanks Bunches.

  • 35
    Avril Tanner says:

    I can not wait to try out the new stamps… I am just loving all the new releases!!!

  • 36
    Jennifer Bradley says:

    Definitely the Wallet. I have made several purse cards and have been asked about wallets – I could never make them before b/c I had no idea how. Now I do and I am very excited to try one!

  • 37
    Candi says:

    I LOVED the whole little stationary kit that Alli made! The little magnetic clips are soo cute!

  • 38
    Marge says:

    I’m excited about the Father Knows Best set, especially that retro tree — yummy! A new set for guys is always exciting though.

    Of course, it all looks just luscious!

  • 39
    Kathy Grimsdale says:

    I really want to try Amy’s card with the flowers stamped all over the front and back, and I want to make a batch of cards using my scraps of decorative paper like Nichole had a few days ago.

  • 40
    ScrapNStampinMama says:

    I absolutly LOVE your Fish Card! I cant wait to get this set and Case that card! I just LOVE how the gel was used to make it so life like! That was so amazing!

    Thanks for the Chance to Win Nichole!

    Nikki says:

    My most fav thing I’ve seen this past week is the tutorial of the wallet!!! What a CLEVER idea! I love it! I can’t wait to get my hands on Father Knows Best set! Thanks so much for the chance and all the wonderful sets!!!! {SMILES}

  • 42
    julie says:

    I cannot wait to try the polka dots with the paint pen…what a terrific idea! I also want to try the wallet…you are so very clever!

    Thanks!

  • 43
    Summer says:

    I am most excited about trying out the wallet card! I love the whole idea behind the card and it combines two fo my favorite things, sewing and card making. Although there have been a TON of cute ideas, it is hard to pick just one!

  • 44
    Amy Y. says:

    So much! I’ve loved the purse… I just need to learn how to sew! I also loved the cattails that Debbie Olson did with the flocking. I never would have thought to do that! I could go on and on!

  • 45
    Cindy Holshouser says:

    I loved the card with the turtle. It looks like a fun technique to try. And all the masculine stamps are a much needed addition to my stamps. It is at least twice as hard for me to make a “guy” card than a feminine card. The duck card is another one I look forward to trying!

  • 46
    PatsyFW says:

    I am delighted to see how you have made designs for boys and men, and I plan to try the Fishbowl, Wallet and Tree cards. My cards always seem to end up so very feminine. I look forward to trying a more tailored, masculine approach. Your Sunrise and Lemon Tart Paper Collection will be ideal for this! Thanks!

  • 47
    Angy Hughes says:

    Do I have to choose just one thing? I really like all the ideas that are presented and can’t wait to try each and every one. I am very excited about the Father Knows Best set. It is so hard finding the right stamps for masculine cards sometimes. (And being the only girl in a family of 4 means I need masculine stamps too). I absolutely love that you make packages for us – ink, paper and ribbon – what could be better? Thanks so much for all the great ideas that I can’t wait to implement.

  • 48
    QueenPam says:

    I am most excited about using my cuttlebug dies with my Papertrey stamps. This looks like a match made in paper heaven. Queen Pam

  • 49
    Maria says:

    Your sneak peaks are such teasers. But what I would most like to try is Alli’s Garden of Life stationary project. It had so many ideas of how to use the “mum” flower that I had no idea one stamp can have so many dimensions for its use. The sneak peak images for this set were wonderful.

  • 50
    Colleen says:

    I love the possibilities the Father Knows Best set offers in ideas for masculine cards.
    Colleen

  • 51
    Allison says:

    I am looking forward to making some fun, masculine cards! I can’t wait to see the rest of the Father Knows Best set.

  • 52
    mcbetty says:

    The trees!!!
    First, pine’s way of embossing and sponging over.
    Second, your way of the retro-art circles on trees.
    Third, my special way of using a tree.

  • 53
    Natasha says:

    I’m really excited about the new colours, I cannot get enough of yellows and oranges.

    Also, I totally want to try that wallet card design!

  • 54
    Danielle says:

    I’m most excited to try out the purse idea. And the gel card. Thanks for continuing to offer so much inspiration!

  • 55
    Angel says:

    The new colors … they look so yummy

  • 56
    AQJ says:

    The little fish card with the hair gel was awesome! I loved everything but I think that’s what I’d like to try first!!

  • 57
    Jennifer R. says:

    I’m really excited about trying out the masculine-ish stamp set. I’m always looking for something to use for my DH and father, grandpa on cards and can’t wait to see what you’ve got to share with us!! Thanks for making it and I know everyone is excited about your upcoming releases!

  • 58
    debbie says:

    Hi Nichole… I would definitely try something with fabric. Don’t know exactly what yet but your purse seriously pushed me over the edge in trying stamping on fabric. I’ve used fabric paint and stencils before but I can only imagine the possibilities with STAMPING on fabric!

  • 59
    Kris Tolman says:

    I LOVED everything! But I think I will be trying the wallet and the purse and the cool retro tree card, etc. It is hard to pick just one. πŸ™‚

  • 60
    Terri Bills says:

    I am looking forward to using my cuttlebug with some of the new flower stamps. I never think of that kind of stuff. Thanks for offering such an incredible prize.

  • 61
    karla says:

    I needed to learn how to make man cards! Thanks for all the inspiration and ideas! Love it all!!

  • 62
    Pam Davis says:

    The wallet card and the gel card! I like popping up the flowers too!
    Thank you for all the inspiration!

  • 63
    Jackie W. says:

    I love all the sneak peaks, but the one I’m most excited to try is the paper piecing one! I like the idea of making a whole stash of cards with beautiful papers and matching ribbon! Thank you so much for this opportunity at such an amazing win! And keep up the good work!

  • 64
    Sheryl Busse says:

    I love the masuline set. I have a terrible time with boy things! Can’t wait to get those!

  • 65
    Val Pass says:

  • 66
    barb schram says:

    The wallet for sure! I love Debbie Olsen’s gift card creation too!

  • 67
    Bluebird says:

    Well of course, the purse, the tree, but I especially love what Lisa Johnson did with the flowers. How she explained the creative process behind it with her daughter, inspired me as well! Thanks ladies for all of the inspiration that you so freely give!!

  • 68
    Malissa A says:

    I’ve learned that simple is good! I think I have a tendency to forget that I don’t need to have emblishments and bling on everything…you’ve inspired the art of “simple” with all of your creations!

  • 69
    Estivalia says:

    I can’t wait to see the flower sets, they look so awesome!! πŸ™‚

  • 70
    Holly says:

    I want to try that wallet card! That was so cool!!!!

  • 71

    I’m anxious to be able to make masculine cards..They’re always so difficult to come up with a masculine design.

    Thanks again for the great fun and contests.

  • 72
    Lisa Rogers says:

    Definitely the wallet! Or wait was that the 3-D tree? Or the emboss resist tree? Oh so many to try so few hours in the day.

  • 73
    Bonnie Sharp says:

    I really want to try the gel in the bag for water with the fish! I have never seen it before and how awesome was that!! Thank you so much Nicole!!

  • 74
    Cathy Preissing says:

    I’m excited by the Garden of Life set. It looks so versitile.

  • 75

    I loved seeing how cute things were on pop-ups and the use of crystal effects. They really added lots of detail. And I LOVED the purse. That was such a fun idea. I need to do one.

    Choosing just one thing from all of the amazing sneak peeks this week is just about impossible. But if I have to name something to try first, it’s Alli’s amazing Garden of Life flowers, cut from patterned paper in a spiral and popped up with a whole stack of dimensionals. I buy dimensionals four or five packs at a time as it is, so I’m just plain giddy about using them in big old stacks!

  • 77
    Ginny Schleich says:

    I love everything! But I really want to see that FROG!! And I have to try out the Paper Pieces sketches. Loved the cards you did with that technique! You are so inspirational! Thanks.

  • 78
    kthaman says:

    I really loved the way Allie cut the flowers into 3D beauties. I definitely want to try that. But I think what has me itching the most would be the tote bag that you did – my girly girls would love to have their own mom-made tote!

  • 79
    Lolita says:

    I love the purse. I’m not a very good seamstress but your instructions are so clear. You make it sounds easy to do. I’m thinking of pulling out my old sewing machine and giving it a try!

  • 80
    Melissa says:

    I can’t wait to see them all! What am I most excited about?? Everything!!! πŸ™‚

  • 81
    Robin says:

    Oh yeah – I LOVED the wallet – so dang cute!

  • 82

    I will definitely be trying the purse that you posted! I could use that for so many different gifts! Such a great idea!! πŸ™‚

  • 83
    veronica says:

    i love the dimensionals used on the trees. it looks amazing. also the paper piecing used earlier, i can’t wait to try that.

  • 84
    Kerry from PA says:

    The gel window with the fishes was just too cute. I loved that idea.

  • 85
    latisha says:

    Making the simple cards with scraps and I am definately going to try to make that wallet card….so cute!

  • 86
    Dixie Cravens says:

    I really liked the multi-layering that was done with today’s tree. It adds so much dimension and interest! I’ve gotta try that!

  • 87
    Suzanne Dean says:

    I love the masculine sets you have coming! It’s so hard to find stamps to make guy stuff with–can’t wait to order it–i want it all!!!!

  • 88
    sally says:

    the great images made years ago that are now being released!

  • 89
    Lisa Carter says:

    The wallet card! It’s too cute.
    I’ve been afraid to try sewing my cardstock, (because my machine is older than I am) but this may push me to give it a try.

  • 90
    RUTH ALLMART says:

    I loved the wallet card and have to give that a try. I also love your sketches with the paper strips and I am definitely giving that a shot.

  • 91
    Mary Cook says:

    I liked your use of colors with the Garden of Life set using the flowers with the Cuttlebug die cut. Great dimension using the sparkles. Got to try that one.

  • 92
    Wendalyn says:

    I can’t wait to try out the new paper with the guy’s cards and also that tree stamp with the dimensional circles. I think that is so neat… Great release can’t wait.

  • 93

    Ok can’t really pick one thing- I think the turtle is the cutiest thing I have ever seen!!! You did such an AWESOME job on that one!!!

  • 94
    Kathy says:

    I definitely can’t wait to try the new Lemon Tart color collection. It looks so soft, cheery and simply lovely. It’s a perfect spring time color just in time for Mother’s Day! I don’t use nearly enough yellow in my projects!

  • 95

    I love the Pond Life set! We live on the lake & have pet frogs – so that is right up my alley! I love Debbie’s masculine card – I will definately have to try that flocking! Thanks for sharing all these wonderful ideas!

  • 96
    Beverly Shanahan says:

    Everything looks fabulous! How much fun is that cute turtle?

  • 97

    The purse-what a super cute idea!!! Love it all!

  • 100
    Valerie says:

    I loved the flower fairy on one of the designers blogs. It really makes me want to try harder to think “outside the box” on all of the stamps I have.

  • 101
    Gail Owens says:

    I fell in love the the turtle from Pond Life. Can’t wait to see all the images tonight. I loved the purse you made and want to try one for myself.

  • 102

    I am most excited about the Pond Life set. I can’t wait to see more!

  • 103
    Laurie P. says:

    I’m really excited to use the shrink plastic idea to make rings for gifts, and the purse to hold them was ultra cute, too! There have been so many inspiring projects this week, it’s hard to choose! Thanks for the chance to win some of your fabulous product – I love the sets this month that I’ve seen so far.

  • 104
    Mo Moss says:

    I liked the idea of the flowers placed in the cuttlebug flower die cut. I have not used the die cut and it is now time. I am really anxious to try it. Thanks for the idea.

  • 105
    Jodi says:

    I love all the peeks we’ve gotten. But I’m really excited to try the wallet card and masculine stamps. I’m going to make mine into a very mini album, putting a photo holder in it, like a real wallet and putting pictures of my dad with his dad and his sons. So excited! Thanks Nichole for always inspiring!

  • 106
    Jennifer says:

    Im really looking forward to making the purse. It would be a great mothers day present. My mom will love it!

  • 107
    Mary Beth says:

    I loved the Father’s Day wallet and can’t wait to make it in a soft pastel and use it for a gift card holder. Totally cute!! LOVE the new colors of the papers, too!

  • 108
    Jackie says:

    I loved all the things I saw these past few days, but I think out of everything I would give the wallet card a go and the gel card. I made a gel card when I first started card making and I would love to try out that technique again with this cute pond set! Thank you for the great sneak peeks, they are always wonderful!

  • 109
    Kerry J. says:

    I am so excited to make masculine cards. Many of the masculine sets out there are not my style – I love what I’ve seen of Father knows best and Pond Life!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 110
    Heidi B. says:

    I’m so glad to have a new masculine stamp set released. Never seems to be many of these around. Actually looking forward to making them now! Oh yeah, can’t wait to play with Pond Life too!

  • 111
    Aimee says:

    I dearly loved your purse and will be trying to make me one here in the future…

  • 112
    Beverly says:

    I love the technique using the bag and hair gel for the fish card. You used a similar technique at a CKC class I took using packing tape, glitter and a birthday sticker. I also am dying to try the flock on the cattails.

  • 113
    Cindy says:

    pick me, pick me! i really like the pattern paper layer technique…it seems easy yet classy!

  • 117
    Harley says:

    That wallet is just the coolest trick. And all of the other masculine stuff. I have no kids, so most everything I do is for my husband or nephews, so it’s all perfect!!

  • 118
    Tashak says:

    That manly cards can be made with what I was always thinking was a girlish color, yellow!

  • 119
    Chelle says:

    my daughter screamed when she saw the turtle! i can’t wait to make her a card with it…the crystal effects looks great! thank you for all the wonderful ideas!! can’t wait to get my hands on those new papers, ribbons, ink and stamps!!!

  • 123
    Alicia says:

    I would have to say it is everything that was previewed from the “Father” set. I don’t have any masculine stamps and I love all of the images and sentiments that have been shown so far.
    Keep up the good work.
    Thanks so much,
    Alicia

    I really like the wallet idea! I would love to do this with my children for their Father’s Day card. So cute!

  • 131
    Charlene says:

    Congratulations on the great new sets. I didn’t think I was going to want/need Pond Life but seeing Debbie’s cattails and that cute duck pushed me over the edge. The dimensional tree is awesome too…Oh shoot, I love it all!!

  • 132
    Dianne says:

    I cannot wait to try making a wallet! I love that idea. Thanks for sharing it.

  • 133
    Alicia says:

    Please don’t laugh, but I am *finally* inspired to try clear stamps. I am a diehard wood mounted stamp lover, and I have been too intimidated to try a new medium. However, I fell in love with your new colors for March, and ordered a bunch of cardstock, ink and ribbon. Ever since then, I have stalked the PTI website. I love all your stamp sets, and will be placing an order for my very first PTI clear stamps with when our tax refund is here!!

    I love the technique using the bag and hair gel for the fish card. You used a similar technique at a CKC class I took using packing tape, glitter and a birthday sticker. I also am dying to try the flock on the cattails.

  • 156
    Laurie says:

    I was surprised to see that the backside of the satin looks different and masculine-like. I simple hadn’t noticed it before, and now I can’t wait to get the yellow colors and pond life to make some masculine cards using the ribbon reversed! I hope it doesn’t sound silly that reversing ribbon is what I am most excited about doing.

    My husband is in the horticulture business -major plants in his Dutch roots too so I know I would get a lot of use out of the Garden of Life set – the card on your blog that is green with the dimensional circles -LOVE IT! (and green just happens to be his favorite color!) I would get a lot of use out of that – plus my aunt heads her state’s Daffodil society – so I am extremely excited to see that whole set and how it would work for tons of cards! Any themes I am sure!

    Tona says:

    It’s hard to decide what I’m MOST excited about trying for myself. Can I say everything? I love the embellished version of the tree, I’ll definitely be trying that one. making a card that mimics a wallet is another great one. Maybe that will be just the nudge I need to get over my fear of the sewing machine. πŸ™‚ The idea with the hair gel was just too cute. And the colors!!! Again, can I just say everything?

    Sarah says:

    So I must admit I already tried out the 2 step stamping ideas, made the purse card from I set I have and used your templates to make a few cards that are in the hands of the US Postal Service already. But what I can’t wait to try is the wallet card- too adorable and the quote is priceless. I really didn’t think I’d go much for a masculine card set, but I love everything I’ve seen! Thanks for the ideas!

    It may sound super silly but I would love to play with all the ribbon, paper, and ink in the new yellow colors. Yellow is a cheerful and uplifting color and I cannot seem to fail in making a fabulous card no matter what shade I use. PT’s new shades will fill in so serious empty spots for me.

    Now mind you that I would love to use the yellow inks on the Garden set and just happen to have the CB diecut that would work as shown as well. Hope hope wish wish πŸ˜‰

    I love the turtle card using the Pond Life set. What I love best about it is the way the technique shown encourages looking at stamps in different and unique ways. The 3D idea is fabulous and then using the Crystal Effects to make the image truly pop off the page. I am looking forward to going through my stamps to see what else can be done this way. Thank you for encouraging a new vision!!!

    I also am anxious to get my papers out to try the ribbonesque designs with papers. Love the papers you have this month!!

TFS all your wonderful work and tips. For someone new to stamping it is great to have one place to find all the information I need about my new favorite pasttime.

    I SOOOOOO want to try the fishy card with the water window…it doesn’t matter what the rest of the set it, as long as I can make that fishy card for every little boy I know having a birthday!! I NEVER would have thought to add WATER to my card…I usually try to avoid water on my stamping table…I usually spill it!! But I am excited to try it myself!

    I really like the compass rose and the Fatherly sayings…can’t have enough of those!

    All your new ink and CS and ribbon colors are delicious!
    I pray number generator picks me!

Oh, and Ali’s project today was another incredible one—I want to make that, too. You can say that I’m inspired by Garden of Life and the way it’s used with so many other supplies! Awesome!

    The wallet is a must! My daughter came home from kindergarten today with a wallet they made in art class with faux stitching and a “bussiness card” they made.

    I don’t think I found all of the sneak peaks, but I saw several. Really loved everything that I saw (stamps AND techniques). One of my favorite things about most of the PTI sets is how you can take each piece and customize and do different things with it (like the flower, when she cut it in a swirl pattern and made it pop up). I loved the wallet idea… my DD just got her license last week and the real license came in the mail today…what a great “card” to make for her new License!! All of these sets are amazing, as are the papers, and everything else!! You have really grown over the past handful of months since I first found you!

I am also soooo excited to not only have the yellow and orange paper and ink (as always) but the ribbon. Do you know how hard it is to find yellow ribbon? Everytime I find some I buy it….it’s a rarity. Thanks for bringing it to us. Can’t wait to get the new colors in my hot little hands. Thanks!

    I can’t wait to try the father’s day wallet. I can still remember buying my dad a wallet one year for Father’s Day and I wanted to buy him a Mickey Mouse wallet and my mom insisted on a brown leather wallet instead! We still talk about that day. I will have to make this for my dad.

    Naturally, I love it all. But my most favorite sneak peak was the wallet card you made. How unique! I can’t wait to make several of these. And I have to use the awesome new papers you have to go with it. Thanks for always giving us bright and innovative ideas. You’re the best!

    The paper and inks are what I am interested in playing with first! The colors and patterns are scrumptious!! Having two grown sons I do believe these papers will offer up sunshine-filled inspiration for making cards and working on scrapbooks for them! OH FUN!! I look forward to what the new stamps will inspire!!

    I just adore the wallet. . . I can’t wait to make on for my dear hubby. We had 1 child and adopted 3 and I will tell you that he hasn’t seen a dollar bill in so long (partially because of my secret PTI Stash –but we won’t tell him that!) I know he’ll flip when I make him this card for Father’s Day! All the new releases look awesome. It just amazes me that when it seems like there could be NOTHING more I have to have, you go and pull out more creativity from the PTI gang!

    Thanks Nichole et al. . . you are Z Best!

    The Patterned Paper! LOL, that’s a no-brainer, though, because I am a total paper slut from the word go…sheesh! I guess I’d have to say the pond set if we couldn’t count the paper addiction, lol…I do really love ponds…a bazillion years ago my aunt used to take me to a pond down by her where we’d sit for hours watching all the little bugs and frogs and even snakes!

    LOVE the sneak peeks!

    I love the turtle card using the Pond Life set. What I love best about it is the way the technique shown encourages looking at stamps in different and unique ways. The 3D idea is fabulous and then using the Crystal Effects to make the image truly pop off the page. I am looking forward to going through my stamps to see what else can be done this way. Thank you for encouraging a new vision!!!

    I also am anxious to get my papers out to try the ribbonesque designs with papers. Love the papers you have this month!!

    Belinda says:

    There’s been a bunch of things I’ve been inspired by! I really love the wallet card idea – such a cute idea and it definitely matches the one sentiment about no money. I also really love how Alli made the flowers 3-D by some selective cutting and pop dots! So cool – and definitely something that will work with lots of other sets too!

    I am excited to try stamping on fabric. πŸ™‚ I had seen stamped onesies before, but it had never occurred to me to stamp on raw fabric and then stitch up a project with it. I’m so glad to know that you can use Palette inks on fabric. Your purse idea is super cute and I appreciate the tutorial for it! πŸ™‚

    The purse, the wallet, the gel card…they are all spectacular! I think looking differently at the stamps themselves this month is what is different for me this month. Something that is meant to be seen one way, turned over or around, looks totally different. Thinking outside the box. πŸ™‚

    To pinpoint this to one single item is really difficult for me. I’m a married mom of three boys…so I live in a house with 4 males. I am soooo excited for all of the masculine stamps and the paper…it’s all just what I’ve needed! I cannot wait! The sneak peak with the frog legs was truly exciting for me as I have 5 frogs living in this house as well….3 boys…I can think of so many things to do with that alone! Thanks for this, Nicole! You rock! Your stamps and now paper, ribbon, ink!…it’s all so fabulous! I can’t get enough! Take care and thanks for the inspiration! πŸ™‚

    This month’s sneak peeks have encouraged me to take my stamping to the next level. Because of Taylor’s Father Knows Best card I have now purchased my first Copic Markers. Because of Debbie’s cattails, I have an order into Ellen Hustons for some frock. Because of Alli’s flower rings, I’ve been playing with Shrinky Dinks for the first time in 20 years. Because of Nichole’s purse, I think I might finally stamp on that fabric my sister gave me 2 years ago with stamping in mind. As always you and your team have inspired and amazed me. This month’s focus on new techniques has been particularly exciting. Well done! And thank you!!!!

    I’m always amazed at the many ways the of combining the stamp sets, papers, inks and ribbons into simple and elegant designs. I’m learning how to create using the fundamentals of simplicity and elegance. The stunning card layouts Nichole posted on her blog are a true inspiration.

    I love how you use the 6×6 paper to make cards. I’m a card maker and need to buy some of that paper–love that it’s scaled down for the 6×6 size. That turtle is too cute and I can’t wait to get it home to embellish it like you did with the gloss on parts of the shell. Looks like it’s going to be another great release!

    honestly, it’s hard to pick a fav for this month’s release. I’m totally excited about the opportunity to produce masculine cards, but spring is on it’s way and flowers are calling to me (we just got rid of the snow last weekend). I’m regularly showing signs of midmonth crazies, and dh is finally catching on to my PTI craze (might have something to due with the cc bills being looked over alot closer now-lol) Dang it, each month it’s getting harder and harder to decide.

    Don’t have a Dad or Dad-in-Law anymore, but, I do make cards for my husband, sons and son-in-law for Father’s Day. Like your choice of paper colors and I think the wallet would be an excellent place to hide a Home Depot shopping card for my guys. Thanks for the contest. Suzanne

    I have a brand new ss (secrect sister) and she is just starting stamping as well so I would love to share some of these wonderful ideas with her in her next package. She only has boys in her house, so even though the masculine stamps and critters are for me I would say I like the girly pastels that I could send to her.

    Michelle Shuman says:

    I love the new colors and the new Garden of Life set. One of my favorite new techniques that I can’t wait to try isn’t even with paper…it’s one I saw on Alli’s sneak peaks on her blog: rings made of shrink plastic! How cool is that??!? Other than maybe gluing on a piece onto a ring blank, that’s something I’d never considered. Awesome idea, Alli! I love checking all the blogs for everyone’s ideas and sneak peaks though…you all are amazing artists and designers. Thanks for the inspiration!

    ~Michelle :o)

    It’s hard to choose just one because there are a few that are tied in my book. One is the purse/tote bag. Love it! Another is the fishy card with the hair gel. Too cute! I also love the wallet… what an ultra cool gift card holder. And thanks for the paper piecing patterns. I’m sure to try those, too!

  • 703

    I don’t know how I missed the purse and gel card posts! I’m here all the time! I’m excited about the 3-d tree and really like the gel card. I also am itching to try the paper pieces with your template! I love to use all my scraps. Thanks!

  • 705
    Karen says:

    I just love the sneak peaks! I thought the wallet is a really fun way to make a Father’s Day card. I loved the gel window and the diy polka dot brad. I also agree that a turtle with his head tucked in would be cute…..let us know if you come up with that fun appropriate sentiment to go with it! :>

    I love the wallet card, I like the fact that by just changing up the papers you use that it can be masculine or feminine.
    I don’t think my previous comment posted, but if it did sorry about a second one..

  • 711
    Jessica says:

    Masculine cards with the Father Best set. I just recently started making my dad cards for things and I just found out the other day that he has kept them all! I want to use that and pond life to keep making him awesome cards that he will save and treasure!

  • 714
    Suzanne says:

    I love the endless possibilities of The Garden of Life. The rings are a must try!

  • 715
    Isabel says:

    The thing that I am most excited about is trying to create the 3D effect that was shown on the tree and on one of the flower blossoms. It looks like so much fun and I’m sure that technique will make the cards absolutely stunning. It was hard to choose just one thing because everything that Papertrey does month after month excites me. It’s like being a kid at Christmas waiting for the big day:)

  • 726
    Mindy says:

    The purse sounds like a great beginner sewing project for my DD. But I must say two things: 1. The polka dots are getting to me. I love the clean look on the background and using your paint pen to add them to the brad!!! 2. The simple layers. I have lots of scraps and sometimes my best cards have so little on them.

  • 727
    Becky says:

    Without a doubt, the gel card is my favorite! That was THE coolest card. How fun would that be for pool party invitations. So cute!

Thank you all so much for making a wonderful set that can be used over and over.

    I really like the tutorial about stamping on fabric. There are so many things you could do with your own custom fabric. I also really like the paper pieced cards. I can definitely see myself using that technique for so many occasions. What a great idea for scraps! It will come in really handy when I am trying to whip up a last minute card. And…I am REALLY excited about the masculine stamp sets.

    Sara in WI says:

    Wow! So much to try! I guess that the first thing that I want to try is the wallet. But what I probably have to try to do more often is to use dimensionals to make things “pop” out and show color and depth more. The new sets look fabulous! I can’t wait to order something, probably next month! Thanks for the tips!

  • 787
    Sharon says:

    I don’t even know where to begin. As a fairly new stamper, there is so much I want to try after seeing all the sneak peaks. Here’s a few I want to try:

    The purse and the wallet

    The Father’s Day pocket card on Heather’s site

    Nicole’s card made with Garden of Life. I just bought a Cuttlebug and then saw your sneak peak using a stamp from Garden of Life AND a Cuttlebug die — now I know what to do with my new machine!

    Alli’s entire project just gave me exactly what I needed for teacher gifts. My DS is in middle school and it’s so hard to buy something for 8 different teachers. I can make them each of gift set of a paperclip, beaded pen, page keeper and cards.

    Thanks so much for inspiring me!

    Carol Hinton says:

    I love Nicole’s purse. I’ve been stamping for over ten years and I’ve never tried stamping on fabric. I think it would be fun to try stamping on an apron or on a cover for my printer.

    Ok I love everything!! The stamp sets, the new colors but what I keep thinking about over and over is the AWESOME fish card with the hair gel! BRILLIANT! I forwarded it to a couple of friends telling them they had to check out this cool card! I soooo have to get the Pond Life set!

    The Father Knows Best sneak peak and projects really touched me. Now seeing the entire stamp set really put it over the top. We often are at a loss of words when we try to express what we feel. These sayings really say what is in our hearts. Thank you PTI!!!

    I’m looking forward to trying the stamping on fabric! I love the “DAD” stamps too but since I lost my Dad 10 years ago (seems like yesterday) its still too hard, but I love the sentiments and they are so fitting to him that I think I’ll have to have those too!

    I’d LOVE to try stamping on fabric – especially with that Palette ink. Are the colors for the palette ink and the papertrey match the same or are they different? Either way, I love the tote bag.

    I loved Alli’s 3D flowers in her second Garden of Life post! I’d love to try them with her set, but in the meantime I was excited to add some dimension to a card by popping up various elements of an image and tried it with something I already own. Love all of these releases tonight!!!

    I too love the pond life…that turtle is awesome. I think I might fall in with everybody else and say I’m excited about trying the wallet for Father’s Day for my hubby. He’ll love it. I love the sentiments for fathers…and those trees are just fantastic.

    Nina R. says:

    Hi! I’m really excited about the Father Knows Best set. My father and I are separated by the Pacific Ocean and I haven’t been able to see him for over 18 months. I’m always thinking about things I can make for him to show him that he’s in my thoughts. But a lot of the stamp sets that I own are very feminine and this new set will allow me the opportunity to make more things for him that aren’t so girly!
