Introducing Big & Bold Wishes

Today I am excited to announce a brand new sentiment set that we are introducing this month entitled Big & Bold Wishes. 

A little about the origins of this set…it actually started with one of my few guilty pleasures.  Something I have admitted to almost no one…

Kat Von D

I'm a total L.A.Ink fan.  I admittedly have my DVR programmed to record all the new episodes.  Yeah, I'm that hooked.  For those of you who may not be familiar with it, L.A. Ink is a reality show on TLC dedicated to Kat Von D, a female tattoo artist, and the adventures she has while running her own shop in Los Angeles.  I think I enjoy it so much because Kat is the exact opposite of my persona & style, but at the same time I can identify with her artistic abilities and struggles to run a business.

So back to the stamp set… while watching L.A. Ink one weekend it occurred to me what a FUN & unique sentiment set could be created using similar fonts to those found in classic tattoos.  What is really great about the way the set turned out is that the script used is classic enough that it can be elegant, trendy or rustic, just by what other design elements are paired with it.

The details.

  • Big & Bold Wishes will be available for purchase on November 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • Big & Bold Wishes contains 24 images (5 large script words, 18 small complimentary sentiments and 1 flourish).

So let's get onto some projects!

1 script

First, let me start of by saying how much FUN this set is to work with!  I think I could probably play with it ALL day, and never tire of all the possibilities!  I thought for my first project, I would show you how the various pieces can be used together, if desired.  I started by stamping the large script sentiment with Aqua Mist ink onto Vintage Cream cardstock.

2 adding co-sentiment

Next, I added one of the complimentary sentiments underneath it using True Black ink.  Don't you just LOVE the way they fit together!  There are at least 3-5 complimentary sentiments to go along with each large script phrase!  Tons of mix & match options!

3 adding flourish to sentiment

Last, I added this large flourish above and below the sentiment I built.  The fun thing about this flourish is that you can add it to the top and bottom, as I did here, or you can add it to just the top OR just the bottom, depending on how you want it to fit in with your design plan!

Mr & Mrs card

Here's my completed card.  It only took about 15 minutes to make because the focal point that the sentiment creates really takes center stage; not a lot of fuss required to make it look "finished".

Ribbon detail

To accent the focal point I created a background using the new Background Basics: Diamonds (more about it later this week).  It is stamped in Aqua Mist ink onto Vintage Cream cardstock.  The corners of this decorative layer are accented with black rhinestones.

Mr & Mrs completed closeup

Loops of True Black Satin Ribbon are affixed to either side of the focal point, giving it a formal, elegant look that is so appropriate for a wedding.  Lovely, isn't it!

Sending You card

(click on the above image for a larger view)

How about a card that shows you another way to use the two sentiments together?  On this project, I stamped the smaller sentiment onto a separate strip of Orange Zest cardstock.  The pop of color that it allows you to add while also bringing more emphasis to this catch phrase is fun and cheerful.  The background pattern was created with one of our classics, Floral Frenzy, using Orange Zest & Raspberry Fizz inks.

Rhinestone trio closeup

For special detail I added three raspberry fizz rhinestones (being added to the store on November 15th) on either side of the sentiment strip.  I also added small drops of Star Dust Stickles to the daisy centers for some additional sparkle.  I think it makes for a very bright & sunny card, perfect for get well wishes!

Butterfly Thank You card

(click on the above image for a larger view)

Now how about using those large script words by themselves?  On this card, I let the scripty "Thank You" hold it's own.  The leaves stamped on the side of the cover are from the new "Turning a New Leaf" set (which you'll hear more about tomorrow), stamped in Vintage Cream ink.  The Crest border at the bottom (Fiskars border punch) was made from Lemon Tart cardstock.  I also added a strip of glitter using Scor-tape and our Prisma Glitter(Dawn has been doing this a lot on her blog lately and I just love the way it looks).

Butterfly closeup

The butterfly (Martha Stewart) was punched from Lemon Tart cardstock as well and glittered.  A small Lemon Tart Vintage Button was added to it's center using a glue dot.  Thank You was stamped with Dark Chocolate ink.  I think this is a simple card that packs a lot of punch!

Hey There card

(click on the above image for a larger view)

This last card showcases how you can trim down the sentiments in this set to be used as a smaller accent.  Here, the "Hey There" was stamped in Melon Berry ink, followed by the companion sentiment in Smokey Shadow.  I love how stylish this looks together on this particular card, don't you?

Polka dot flowers closeup

The leaf image is another one from "Turning a New Leaf" (available November 15th) and it was heat embossed onto Smokey Shadow cardstock using Filigree Clear embossing powder.  The flowers were created with EK Success punches.  The Vintage Cream cardstock they are made from was first stamped with Polka Dot Basics II using Melon Berry ink.  They are adhered in place with glue dots followed by Melon Berry Vintage Buttons to their centers.  Notice that Background Basics: Diamonds is used again here, only this time stamped in Vintage Cream ink.  Ohhh la la!

I've just begun to scratch the surface in regard to what you can do with the sentiments contained in this set.  I am eager to see what else all of you think of as you begin to play with the set once you receive it.

Here's your chance to win your very own copy of this set!  Leave a comment letting me know what you think of Big & Bold Wishes and extra large sentiments in general.  Just for taking the time to do so, we are offering up a generous prize package full of BIG sentiments…

    Ooh, I love the idea of this. Sometimes you want just a simple sentiment large enough to carry the whole card (rather than an image) and you have done it! Can’t wait to see the whole set!!

    amanda H says:

    I was just staring at some of my stamps yesterday and wishing I had a way to make them bigger. Your cards are a perfect example of how the sentiment can take center stage or be a perfect compliment to the overall look. Great idea; giveaway or not, they will be mine!

    When I saw the peak earlier this week I thought to myself “well that is one I won’t want”!! Ha! Ha! After seeing your samples and a better look at the sneak I have to have it!!

  • 26
    Cindy Holshouser says:

    I love the larger font, especially for simpler cards where the sentiment can take center stage. And the look of mixing two different sized sentiments is great. Not to throw a suggestion curve ball into a new release but I have often thought even a “Giga” Mixed Messages would be great. Papertrey has so many smaller sentiments this new set seems like a great addition!

  • 27
    Jessica says:

    Oh wow, I’m so excited! I love sentiment stamps, and often go searching for larger ones, when I want the sentiment to take most of the focus (and I have almost none that fit that need). Or when working with an otherwise busy paper/background. I cannot wait to see the entire set!

  • 37
    Lacey says:

    Well now I just want to see what the other sentiments say. This just seems very cool, but I guess I’ll just have to wait…

    Linda L says:

  • 39
    Pam S says:

    Big Bold Wishes looks so awesome!!! I love how you can use it to create a simple card with the sentiment as the focal point or use to to add to the card. And the smaller sentiments just adds to the the versatility of the set. Wicked!

    Boy have I missed your blog! I recently moved and have been trying to get my new house in order. Once that is completed, my craft corner is going to come to life!! YEah, I haven’t crafted in weeks and I’m just not the same….but anywhoo, first I love LA Ink! I’m already in the process of coming up with my next tattoo (to honor my son, which will be my 11th tattoo). I love certain styles of Tattoo writing and it looks like your set is gonna rock!! Once again, PTI is creating stamps sets I’m gonna love!!

  • 45
    Laura F. says:

    I LOVE big words. A really great CAS card can be made with one big word, and a small punch (butterfly etc..) or a single small image to accent it. I do not have nearly enough big word stamps. I am always stuck using alphabets, and one letter ends up being crooked. I say hooray for more BIG words!

    Josiane says:

    I love the idea of a big sentiment stamp set, which has enough visual weight so minimal embellishment is needed to create a simple card. I can’t wait to see the whole set.

    Bwt, my favorite card is the kraft one. What a pretty color combo! I would have never thought of it.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

    Karen Rose says:

    Hi Nichole … I can already tell that it’s shaping up to be a month of wanting it all!

    I like the font on this a lot! It’s really got that “something”, it’s not too fussy or too plain. I’ve found some of your sentiments too small for my taste/style, so it’s nice to see you doing something big.

  • 111
    Tera says:

    I love the big sentiments to really make a great focal point. Looking forward to all the other sneak peeks!

  • 112
    Ange Kelly says:

    I took note of the size of the sentiments in the ‘giga guide lines’ set, and thought they were great, so I am sure I am going to looove this set even more ….

  • 113

    Love these!! The size is so fun 🙂

    As always, your creativity abounds!! Beautiful cards and love the new set!!

  • 115
    Kathleen says:

    This set looks amazing—but, they all look amazing every month!! One of the reasons I like large sentiment sets is that it usually makes quick cards—the sentiment can act as the focal point—since I don’t have a lot of time to stamp, this is appealing to me!

  • 116
    Bev S says:

    It is my favorite time of the month again! I love the boldness of these sentiments, which allow them to be the vocal point of the cards. These will also be very useful in scrapbooking too. Can’t wait to see the rest!

  • 117

    I love this font, totally different to anything else PTI has. All the projects made with this are amazing (and not too complicated for someone like me to try!).

  • 120
    Tammy says:

    Love, love, love it! The way you paired the large font with the smaller one is perfection!

  • 121
    misse336 says:

  • 122
    Linda says:

    Wow Nichole…so much amazing inspiration on your blog. I love the idea of Big Bold Sentiments….I certainly don’t have any in my collection so these would be very exciting. I love the way the two fonts and sizes work together to compliment each other. Great thinking girl:)))

  • 123
    Patsann says:

    This stamp set is awesome. Nicole your creativity really allows us to see some of the possibilities that we can do.I am looking forward to Big&Bold Wishes. You are such an inspiration. Thanks for the opportunity to win this set.

  • 125
    Maureen says:

  • 126
    Tricia Dee says:

  • 127
    CarolLynn says:

    Beautiful cards!! I love the new set.

  • 128
    Joyce Stewart says:

    Very nice sentiments…..I have used the little stamp in Vintage Labels to decorate a name just like you have decorated Mr & Mrs….when I first saw this stamp I knew that I wanted to use it to highlight a name…I also thought that I could use it as a line for folk to sign a card on…so decorative yet simple at the same time. I’m sorry I can’t scan my card to show you as scanner is temperamental but just yesterday I used this stamp on a very formal card for a Pastor. I have written (calligraphy) his name and stamped 5 mm above and below this name…it is a long line of text given that I have his professional letters on it as well and I am delighted with the look achieved with the stamp…it is the little stamp with the straight line on one side. Thanks!

  • 129
    Loydine says:

    The Big&Bold sentiments will be great for making quick but stylish cards. I always appreciate your demonstrations that show a variety of designs & styles. Another must-have:)

  • 130
    Julie says:

    I love this time of the month! PaperTrey release! Some of my favorite stamps of PaperTrey are the fonts. I love the handwritten ones and pairing them smaller regular fonts is even better.

  • 131
    Jenink says:

    What an interesting idea- Papertrey always is on the cutting edge with sentiments and fonts.

  • 132
    Vanessa Cadman says:

    Wow, Nichole! I LOVE the large sentiments – makes the reason for a card very visible. Will definitely consider this one.

  • 133
    Meg C says:

    I tend to use quotes and phrases on my cards that are more wordy than this set. But seeing the simplicity has reminded me that I can convey the same message with fewer words. The fonts compliment each other very well. The larger one has style (but not too busy) and the smaller one anchors the larger one. Awesome set!

  • 134
    Martha says:

    At first I was perplexed by your inspiration but the results are beautiful – thanks for reminding me to look for inspiration and beauty everywhere – even outside my comfort zone.

    Wendy T. says:

    What a cool set! One of the things I love most about PTI is the unique design concepts behind so many of your sets. I just adore the large sentiments in this set -I’m a big sentiment junkie and at last I’ll be able to allow the subject of my addiction to be the main feature in my cards! Can’t wait!

  • 145

  • 159
    Jean D says:

    Wowzer! Those sentiments are soo cool! I totally identify with those fonts, they bring me back. I really love the Mellon Berry & Smokey Shadow color combination. I will have to try it. Can’t wait to see what else you do with the diamond background!

  • 160
    Karen says:

    Countdown is my favorite time of month! Checking your blog and the designers’ blogs is the first thing I do in the morning. Love the combination of the large font and the small phrases; so versatile. Can’t wait to see the full reveal.

  • 161
    Brooke says:

    When I saw the first picture, the roses in the background reminded me of In Bloom. I have never seen or heard of La Ink but I absolutely love to hear where you get your inspiration, and you really do get it everywhere!!

    I’m going to say I love this set but the truth is there isn’t one that I don’t love!!

  • 183
    Isabel Z says:

    Yea, the countdown has begun! One of the things missing in my stamp collection is a good set of sentiments and I think this is going to be the one to start filling that gap. I just love the font and how you can coordinate larger type with smaller one. Can’t wait to see it in its entirety. Now I’ll have to check out L.A. Ink to see what I have been missing!

  • 244
    Heidi U. says:

    Wow I really LOVE the samples you have shown – they are beautiful. I love large sentiments because it gives you the flexibility to make the words the focus of the card, or not. I love using big greetings on cards paired with small phrases as you have – it is a syle all its own and allows you to say what you really mean behind the large greeting. Thanks!

    I love the idea of a larger focal sentiment. I just came back from a scrapbooking weekend and one thing I noticed was I would like more text stamps, but big ones, to “capture the moment” on the page!

  • 332
    peggysue says:

    I like finding out about people’s little secret habits . . . I’m glad that L.A. Ink inspired this set, its beautiful! Nice, large sentiments. And what pretty color combinations. I’ve been searching for that particular edge punch too (the one you used on the lemon cardstock) for a few weeks now with no success . . . you all must have stores stocked better than ours!

  • 339
    Laura says:

    The script font and serif font really complement each other well. I specifically like “Hey There” a lot, because I tend to say “hey” instead of hi a lot. The Thank You card with the butterfly is lovely. I feel a sudden urge to glitter butterflies. 🙂

    Leave it to you to create something that I absolutely NEED!!! Really, I have been saying that there aren’t any good big sayings out in the market. I have lots of little sentiment, and they are perfect for many cards, but sometimes you just want a large sentiment.

  • 394
    mary puskar says:

    I think this set fills the bill perfectly for large sentiments. There’s really nothing else like it. Sometimes, that’s what a card needs, not a picture stamp, but the sentiment to take the main stage, front and center. I love it!

    Debbie says:

    Very cool Nichole! I have been waiting for a big “thank you” sentiment. They’re harder to find than you would think! And I TOTALLY get your secret obsession with L.A.

    I love the extra large sentiments. Those sized sentiments really anchor a card front. The smaller complementary sentiments are a perfect way to round out this set. I love the wording of so many of PTI’s sentiments and I am excited to see this set and all of the words in full!

    I can’t wait to add this set to my studio (maybe for free…a girl can hope, can’t she?!?)

    Michelle Michael says:

    Sometimes the smaller sentiments just aren’t enough when you want to make a simple card. I also know that when sending cards to my mom, who has a vision problem,that I can’t use the smaller sentiments. This set would solve that problem for me! Great idea!

  • 447
    Amanda says:

    Once again, your cards have sealed the deal – that I need this set! I love the larger size. It allows the sentiment to be the focal point which I love. The other sneak peeks are great too! Looks like two mores sets I need! Can’t wait to see more of them! Off to check out the other peeks… 🙂

  • 466
    Kelly Fehr says:

    This is a definite order item for me. I have always been disappointed at how small the words tend to be in stamp sets. I think words themselves are great design elements. Thanks for creating another classic stamp set!

  • 467
    Beth Denny says:

  • 478
    Maureen says:

    I have the hardest time finding “words” or “sentiment” stamps that I like. I love your stamp set this month. I especially like the flourish that is included in it. I was wondering how you were going to follow up all those great holiday release parties…I guess you did it again. I can’t wait for the 15th. Although I did tell myself that I wasn’t going to buy anything this month.

  • 479
    Maureen says:

    Wow! That last card was my favourite…love the colour combination 🙂 I see I need at least 3 of your new sets!! LOL

  • 480

    I’m glad to know I’m not the only one with an LA Ink Guilty Pleasure Fix! What a GREAT set. I love the style of the fonts and the smaller verses pair perfectly with them. I was about to place an order for a few other sets but think I’ll have to wait for the new releases!!! WAHOO!

  • 481
    Karen says:

    sentiments,sentiments, sentiments we can never have enough words to include on cards. LOVE the set and the samples!!!

    This set is a GREAT Idea!!! I love the variety, and the appeal of the fonts! And I admit that I have watched LA Ink myself; I find it quite interesting, as I’m a fan of entrepreneurs! Kat is quite a character, and it’s fun to see what’s going on in her world!

  • 491
    Cathy Weber says:

    I like to make cards that are a bit larger and the new sentiments would be perfect for them. Can’t wait to see all of the new release stamps this month.

  • 492
    Rachel Bosworth says:

    I really like big sentiments. It makes it easier to make simple, bold cards, which it what I like to do. I could see using this set to create notecards sets for gifts by stamping the large sentiment on the front of the card and the corresponding smaller sentiment inside the card. Love the possibilities this set holds (and LOVE the font!!!).

  • 493
    Mary H says:

    Love the combination of large sentiments paired with the small! The possibilities are endless. I just love this set. And do so appreciate your examples which just jumpstart my imagination.

    You are so funny. One of my guilty pleasures is LA Ink also. My husband can’t understand it as I have no or do not want any tattoos. I think the artistry and design is awesome. Your big bold stamp set has hit the mark and I feel will be a huge hit.

    Bernadette says:

    I’m not a fan of tattoos, so I did not think I would like this set based on your intro. Based on the projects, though, I can tell that this set is just as wonderful as all your other stamps sets. Definitely a Papertrey original.

    We can never have too many sentiment stamps – this set rocks!! I wish I could turn my “guilty pleasure” TV viewing into such inspired artwork!! It’s a nice change to have the sentiment on a card as a focal point instead of adding it on as an afterthought.

  • 538

  • 541
    Kristie says:

    One thing that I’m always looking for in a stamp set is larger fonts. There’s just not that many out there. Thanks for sharing your inspiration behind the set too! It’s neat to see where the pros get their inspiration.

    I’m looking forward to the rest of the countdown 🙂

  • 542
    Mary K says:

    I like the idea of larger sentiments/designs to use for clean and simple cards and as focal points. (I have to admit I love LA Ink too–but I love tattoos too.)

  • 543

    Big & Bold Wishes has just been added to the very top of my Must-Have list. I love the large generous proportions and the comfortable combination of script and printed phrases. This is an excellent set for making cards for people with diminished eyesight.

    Lizzie Jones says:

    You are blowing my mind right now, Nichole Heady. Seriously. I wouldn’t have pegged you for a Kat Von D fan, like, ever. What a grin-inducing surprise. I love it. Anyway…I really like this large sentiment trend. I’m a big fan of the smaller ones too, but the larger sentiments make such striking focal points. The font you’ve chosen is so hip. I love the style! I can’t wait to see what else is in store.

  • 571

    I love that they’re so big!! And elegant. You’re right… they can be made casual and funky just with some embellies and a new image. You’ve done it again!

  • 577
    Amy says:

    These are great! Sometimes a large sentiment is all you need on the front of a card. I often have trouble coming up with what to say in a card, so having plenty of sentiments to work with is very helpful.

  • 578

    Big & Bold – goin’ in the cart…cha-ching! Love this…BIG SENTIMENTS is where it’s at – wooooo! And I love the Orange Zest and Raspberry Fizz together – that is so 70s!

  • 587

    k prakken says:

    I love the big sentiments. I think they make great focal points on cards. I think it is funny that you watch LA Ink. I started watching when I saw a promo with Aubrey in it. My daughter was pregnant at the time with a girl and was going to name her Aubrey. My daughter did say after watching it, that she wouldn’t have picked the name Aubrey, if she had watched the show first. LOL We now have a beautiful 3 month old Aubrey.

  • 604
    Lindzie H says:

    It amazes me how creative you are every month. Love the new set!

  • 605
    Susan Hazell says:

    It’s interesting to find another card maker who’s hooked on LA Ink – like you, Kat Von D is the exact opposite to me (middle aged mum with curly hair and glasses!) but I find her fascinating. Do you think it’s her creativity that appeals to us or do we yearn for the wild side of life?

    Now to your cards – they are really good – I especially like the yellow butterfly “Thank you” card – the button works so well on it.

  • 606
    Donette B says:

    Definitely my FAV time of the month… I loved the sneak peaks but your samples fabulous. Thanks so much for sharing!!

    I’m also a big fan of LA Ink. Not one tat but there is something about that show that just draws (no pun intended) me into watching.

  • 612
    TracyTracy says:

    Big Sentiments are the best , because they really make your message stand out, I think. And they are quicker, sometimes, because they take up more of the card. I love this set!

  • 613
    Michelle Dyson says:

    I LOVE this stamp set! It looks like you read my mind and designed exactly what I have been looking for! Thanks!!

    Melissa Sibert says:

    I wasn’t sure I would go nuts or “need” the sets in this month’s release, but with just this first sneak peak of several of the sets, I am rethinking my first impressions. Always happens with all your awesome creativity and simple elegant style. I really like this set. I like the different big sentiments and the smaller ones that go with them. Very nice.

  • 620
    Dana Klinkner says:

    I really like this Big & Bold Wishes sentiment set! I think it’s fun to change things up sometimes and have bigger sentiments because you can “flip” your typical cards around. What I mean by that is the sentiment can become the focal point instead of the typical images or accessories. Love it!

  • 621
    Penny P. says:

    Such great ideas as always! Can’t wait to see the rest of the set!

  • 622

  • 633
    Gwen says:

    Hi Nicole!
    Wonderful! I am such a fan of your company, Papertrey Ink! My credit card tells me almost each month in case I forget! I love just about all of the stamps, buttons, ribbons, colors and paper, etc! Big Bold Wishes is going to have to come live at my house! How it gets here-we’ll see! I’m so inspired to be a designer for your company someday! Thank you for all the creativity and beauty you give to all of us!

  • 634

    I have been waiting for a set like this with bigger sentiments. Yeah PTI!

    Lisa HR says:

    Just speechless! (Pick Me!)

  • 636
    Amy says:

    I am totally loving the BIG sentiments. I think they add something totally different to a card – you can have a focal and not have something cutesy! I love it!!

  • 637
    Katerfly says:

    It’s true, bigger IS better!!!!!

  • 638
    Jo Eades says:

    You know Nichole, I wasn’t going to order this month, since I’d placed 2 big orders the last 2 releases, but after seeing today’s sneak peeks, I think I’ll have to rethink that idea. Looks like it’s going to be another fantastic release month.

  • 639
    Terri Moore says:

    I never would have taken you for an LA ink fan. I think it is cool though. I look forward to seeing the rest of this set. Thanks for the chance to win it.

  • 640
    Elaine Moore says:

    Oh I’m so glad you came out with this size sentiments! My cards are usually 6″ sq or 5″X7″ and cry for larger sentiments. Thx so much for doing this and giving us an opportunity to win a set.

    alyssa Pappas says:

    This is such a fun, new, fresh font! It can be so formal, yet so trendy, or even retro! (imagine it with dawn’s set!) Really fun!

  • 642
    Kelly in Canada says:

    One thing I am ALWAYS looking for are sentiment stamps that express exactly what I need them to. Finding these stamps is not always an easy task. It looks like this set (and Dawn’s new one) will solve many of my dilemmas.

  • 643
    Stephanie P. says:

    Another home run, Nichole! What nice big, bold fonts and I love the complimentary sentiments.

  • 649
    ChrisTea says:

    Oh finally. I love a variety of stamps and styles, but there isn’t a lot of selection for those with an edge. I think the look & word choice for ‘Mr. & Mrs.’ hit it dead on. The other 3 words are still kind of ‘card-y’ rather than edgy, but I’ll still be getting these stamps.

  • 650
    Kris says:

    There’s always something exciting and fun going on at PTI! It looks like the start of another great release!

  • 651
    Valerie Y says:

    Love the big sentiments. It will be great for making quick and easy cards. I especially love the Mr/Mrs stamp. I don’t have many wedding stamps, so this would be perfect. You always come up with great wording and phrases!

  • 652
    Mindy says:

    LOVE the larger sentiments and the smaller phrases that go along with them. I’ve enjoyed playing with the large phrases that are in the Giga Guidelines, so this new set is a must have!

You’ve done a fabulous job (again) of getting inspiration from new places and transforming it into an AMAZING set… honestly, this one looks too good to be true.

    Here’s hoping I win it 😀

  • 666
    Marie Freeman says:

    I love them! Love how versitile they are. I think it is great that the sentiment can be the focal point if you want it to.

  • 667
    Jo R. says:

  • 668
    Amy G. says:

    These are beautiful. It’s funny — the last thing I’d think of as inspiration for this set would be tattoos! I’m so glad you can find inspiration in surprising places. 🙂

  • 669
    Amber R. says:

    I currently don’t own any big sentiments and was a little uncertain when reading your intro paragraph…but, this is great! It changes the focal point from my usual type of card – neat ideas!

    I LOVE Kat Von D! She is gorgeous, and I so admire her for overcoming her addictions and running her own business.

    Your stamp set is lovely. I especially love the sample you made using “Hey There.” The embossed leaves and hand-cut flowers give the card such depth!

  • 676
    Kris says:

    Ironically just yesterday as I was using the picnic set (for Christmas—fantastic versatility in that set!)I was thinking how fun it would be to have a larger font set to go with the smaller sentiments in other sets! Wow, you guys are good!!! 🙂

  • 677

    Beautiful samples of this new set and I must say this new large size of things is really ‘tickling my fancy’! I love how they aren’t tiny & fussy, but really bold & beautiful. I feel like they really MAKE the card w/o needing much in the way or extras or embellies. Simply Gorgeous! 🙂
