It's hard to believe that this release is nearly over! Day 13 is here! One more day until the big release party! I can hardly wait!
I've got two new stamp sets to introduce to you today. They each have very unique attributes, so I am dedicating one entire post to each set (so be sure to scroll down to the post below AND down to the third post declaring today's challenge!)
First, I wanted to go into details about Dawn McVey's new set, Studio Style. This is an absolutely ADORABLE set dedicated to something we all know and love, CRAFTING! And specifically featuring ACTUAL Papertrey product inspired images!!! Who would appreciate a handmade card more than the friends you share this paper crafting passion with?
- Studio Style will be available for sale on February 15th.
- It will retail for $15.
- It contains a total of 16 stamps (5 images and 11 sentiments.)
I don't know about you, but it is incredibly exciting to have a set dedicated to just this lil' hobby of ours! It includes the PERFECT sentiments for giving little goodies to your crafting friends, whether you meet with them regularly in person or you've only met online via your favorite stamping forum.
Let me show you a few fun little uses for this cute little set!!!
Isn't this button jar just the sweetest! It looks exactly like the jars I use to store my Papertrey Vintage Buttons!
I colored the jar & buttons with various Copic markers to reflect my desired color scheme. It is cut out and popped up on foam dimensionals on top of a Pure Poppy cardstock strip stamped with Polka Dot Basics II using Versamark ink. And I can't forget the sentiment! This along with many others in the set are one-liners that we can totally associate with!
When you look at this card from the side, you get a little hint of what kinds of surprises lay inside!
A sheet of embellishments attached to Clear Cardstock with glue dots, ready to be applied to a paper crafting project! I've seen both Dawn & Michelle doing this a lot on their blogs and have been wanting to try it for some time. And there couldn't possibly be something more perfect to tuck inside a card for a crafty friend. Notice, I repeated the same Pure Poppy strip at the top of the embellishment sheet. I also added the sentiment… "Wishing you a day to get your craft on!" to the top of the sheet. The embellishments themselves were created with a few flower punches, polka dot paper from Pretty Pastels, lemon tart cardstock and Pure Poppy buttons & rustic jute twine.
Here's my second ensemble. All in shades of Hibiscus Burst & Raspberry Fizz. I created this with a birthday gift in mind for a special friend.
I love, LOVE, love this ribbon spool image that Dawn drew. Notice it has five of Papertrey's own ribbons stacked up on top of each other (I would recognize that Bitty Dot & Stitched ribbon anywhere!) I colored it in with Copic markers.
On the bottom portion of the focal point, I stamped some various buttons from the set to fill in space using Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst inks. I punched out the button "holes" using a handheld 1/8" circle punch.
I then was able to go back in and knot a little rustic jute button twine through each stamped button. I love the way this turned out! Notice the pattern in the background? It's from Background Basics: Petal Power. I added it with Raspberry Fizz ink on top of the Hibiscus Burst card base.
Our round clear top tins are great for presenting little crafting doodads to your friends. A simple strip of patterned paper around the tin, tied together with a bit of ribbon creates the perfect presentation.
This last project is quick and simple, super easy to replicate. I stamped the background with squares from Quilter's Sampler using Vintage Cream ink. That set pairs perfectly with the Studio Style set for even more options.
For the focal point, the button jar is stamped with Aqua Mist ink. I then was able to add the 'Thank you, crafty friend" sentiment to the jar with True Black ink, kind of looking like a label on the jar. Pair this card with a stack of pretty fabric for someone special!
So what do you think of this sweet little set? Do you have a friend or two (or three or four!) that you could see yourself putting together a few of these goodies for? Well, today's your chance to do that AND possibly win a prize for your random act of kindness!
Since there are TWO project pots today, I have started a separate contest post below, which can also be accessed HERE! Be sure to stop over there to see what it's all about and have a chance to win a HUGE prize package!!!

I have been stalking Dawn’s blog for a week….yummy!
I had already informed my DH how excited I was with the impending PTI release, however, this post was actually CARRIED over to HIM to View for Himself!!! I think HE needs this stamp set to create CARDS 4 ME…………
Toni Storie says
I love Dawn’s new set! So cute with really funny sentiments!
Anne B says
I was so excited when I saw Dawn using her new set earlier in the week ad I love what you’ve done with it too. Can’t wait til the 15th!
Karyn Schultz says
This is fantastic – so original! great sentiments
This stamp set would be great for all the crafties I work with, which is a lot. Great for those invites like Mish did for a get together for some craft time.
Cia Tate says
You are all doing so many wonderful things that I am going into sensory overload. I want so many of your new things that I would never have time to use them. Oh, the decisions…
Really, you are doing such a fantastic job.
steph zerbe says
This is the coolest set ever!
Love, love, LOVE the buttons in the jar and the sentiments ROCK!
These samples are to die for!
My crafty friends are gonna love getting these kinds of gifts and cards. And the tins with ribbon and buttons…brilliant!
Happy Anniversary PTI!
How ironic. A friend and I were talking recently about hoarding and not using our supplies. Cannot wait for this set and send her some cards and things…made with stuff I have been hoarding, and even the new supplies as well.
Karen Rose says
Ditto to Vivian about having the discussion about “hoarding” supplies … will have to break out this set and send cards to all my craft friends to encourage them. Thanks to you and Dawn for the great examples!
Michele aka Derbylea says
This is such a fun set, perfect for all my crafty internet friends.
Mary Duffek says
This is a totally fun set! How clever.
Diane Jaquay says
AWESOME samples here Nichole! I really love how you included the flower embellies in the one card, brilliant idea!
LOVE this set! This is #1 on my list to buy on Monday!!! I hope you ordered lots of this set cuz it is going to fly out the door.
Susan (peebsmama) says
This is a fun set and would be terrific to send to fellow stampers. I love the idea of sending not only a card but embellishments as a little gift for them to use. Really cute.
Geri Greening says
Now this is a set I want. It seems that us “crafty” people tend to gravitate to each other, creating lasting friendships. What a nice way to celebrate our love we have for our friends as well as our love of crafting! Also, I always tell my dh that “the one with the most product, wins!”
Maria M. says
How I would love to be a recipient of either of these projects! And to make and give one to a fellow kindred spirit! FANTABULOUS!!!!
Lisa G. says
I feel so justified that I’m not the only who LOVES “collecting” and not “hoarding” supplies! Hee hee so cute! Love it!
Anne Thompson says
This is the best set ever!!! I can’t wait to get this one!!! Anne, yourmainestamper
C Burke says

Excellent! The 1st one really cracked me up “Are we really supposed to use our supplies”. This is so me, the hoarder. This set is indeed a great idea for cards between crafters and little crafty gifts. Great idea! 😀
As always, you ladies have outdone yourselves!!! Just one more day….
Monica K says
Yay! What a fun set. It will be so cool to have stamps about crafting. I’ve never seen something like this before. Great idea for sending cards to craft friends. 🙂
