Introducing Healing Touch Sentiments & Year of Flowers: Carnations

Here we are on Day 3 of the January Countdown and we still have SO many exciting things to share with you.  There are TWO posts today, so be sure to scroll down so you don't miss a single thing!

First, the last stamp set to complete the Year of Flowers series… an ode to January's birth flower, the carnation.  I feel as though I was able to capture the delicate ruffled edges that grace the petals of this popular flower with the images in this set.  All of the layers of each bloom provide depth and dimension that will bring so much beauty to your projects!

The details.

  • Year of Flowers: Carnations will be available for sale on January 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Year of Flowers: Carnations contains a total of 6 stamps (1 large carnation, 1 small carnation and 4 sentiments)

Next, a new sentiment set designed by Melissa Bickford.  This compilation of thoughtful phrases is dedicated to feel better wishes, something I know that my personal stamp collection has been lacking until now.  The beautiful font combination paired with the timelessness of the sentiments is something that no stamper should be without!

The details.

  • Healing Touch Sentiments will be available for purchase on January 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • Healing Touch Sentiments contains a total of 19 sentiments.

In addition to these two fabulous stamp sets, I also have a new die collection to introduce to you today.  With the popularity of our previously released Limitless Layers 1.75" Circle Collection, we thought we would bring you the second addition that's even BIGGER and better.  This new collection starts with a base circle featuring a 2.5" diameter.  It then has 4 decorative mats to coordinate with it.  You will love this new size as well as the new possibilities it holds.

The details.

  • The Limitless Layers 2.5" Circle Die Collection will be available for sale on January 15th.
  • The set of 5 large dies will retail for $32.
  • The Limitless Layers 2.5" Circle Die Collection contains a total of 5 dies.  A standard circle that measures 2.5" in diameter and 4 decorative mats that measure approximately 3-1/4" in diameter.

Let me show you a few creations that I made using these amazing new products!

Catalog cover
Have any of you received the new spring Boden catalog in the mail yet?  I got mine yesterday and as I was flipping through the pages, I couldn't help but be inspired.  With each of my projects today I thought I would share my inspiration!

Quick Recovery Card
First, a soft-spoken, simple card perfect for setting a soothing tone for the recipient.

My inspiration was this shirt from Boden.  I loved the ruffles paired with the white & melon color scheme.

I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock with the standard circle from the new Limitless Layers 2.5" Circle Die Collection.  I just LOVE this new size and the large canvas it provides.  I stamped the smaller carnation from Year of Flowers: Carnations using Smokey Shadow ink and colored it with Melon Berry Copics.  I was really happy with the softness I was able to achieve by stamping the image in gray.

I then used one of the decorative mat dies from the Limitless Layers 2.5" Circle Collection to cut a window from a square of vellum cardstock.

Focal closeup
The sentiment added on top of the carnation is one of the many useful phrases found in Healing Touch Sentiments.

I was able to overlay the square on my Melon Berry card base to create a reverse "frame around my circular focal point.  

The top edge of the vellum was trimmed with pinking shears, then stitched across the top in a single line, allowing the thread ends to dangle artistically.  I love the "raw" look this creates.

A simple card that could be adapted to so many occasions!

Bright & Bold Get Better Card
Now for something bold & bright!

The vivid blues & greens found in this dress from the Boden catalog provided the inspiration for this project!  A color combination that is definitely out of my comfort zone!

I started by heat embossing the small carnation a few times on a Hawaiian Shores card front with White Filigree Embossing Powder.  I stamped the large carnation on Blueberry Sky cardstock with True Black ink and trimmed it out carefully with scissors.  The leaves (from Turning a New Leaf) were stamped with VersaMark ink onto New Leaf cardstock and cut out with scissors.

Sentiment closeup
I added a row of text at the bottom of the Hawaiian Shores layer using Text Style II and VersaMark ink.  The sentiment (from Healing Touch Sentiments) was stamped on a strip of white cardstock with True Black ink and tucked under the edge of the carnation.

I sponged just a touch of Fresh Snow ink to the center of the large carnation for dimension, then added a tiny trio of rhinestones as a finishing touch.

Peaceful Prayers Card
From bright & bold we go to soft & peaceful.

Neutrals are all the rage right now and I translated this outfit to read Soft Stone, Fine Linen & Kraft.

To begin, I stamped both carnations onto Fine Linen cardstock and heat embossed them with White Filigree Embossing Powder.

Pearls closeup
A few small adhesive pearls were added to the centers.

Sentiment closeup
For the sentiment block, I die-cut the standard circle & scalloped circle from the Limitless Layers 2.5" Circle Die Collection using Kraft carstock.  The standard circle was stamped with Background Basics: Sheet Music using VersaMark ink followed by another sentiment from Healing Touch Sentiments in Dark Chocolate.  I inked around the edge with Fresh Snow to help define the standard circle from the scalloped layer.

I cut the circle in half and adhered it to the top edge of the card, attaching it in place with a few random lines of stitching.  

Wonderful Self Card
I thought this project ended up with a very modern feel that's stylish and "now".

This dress from the catalog served as my inspiration.  I loved the grays teamed up with a pop of bright pink.  To translate this scheme to my project I ended up using Soft Stone, Smokey Shadow and Raspberry Fizz.

It all started with stamping a background with the carnations on Soft Stone cardstock.  I then colored them all in with the darkest Raspberry Fizz Copic, no special shading, just solid color.  After completing the coloring, I ran the cardstock through my Big Shot with the Woodgrain Impression Plate.

Die & stamping sentiment
For the sentiment strip, I cut one edge with the new Edgers #1 Die then stamped it with one of the heartwarming sentiments from Healing Touch Sentiments using Fresh Snow.  I like how the ink almost appears a soft gray color on the Smokey Shadow cardstock, coordinating with the Soft Stone background that the carnations were stamped onto.

Sentiment closeup
After adhering the sentiment into place, I wrapped a bit of Fresh Snow Velvet ribbon around the top of the strip followed by some pink embroidery floss.  

Button closeup
A few Raspberry Fizz buttons were also added as a finishing detail.

    Your Quick Recovery card with the vellum, carnation & die is my favorite…I think. Anxious to see more of the “healing touch” sentiments as there is a definite need for those. You did a fabulous job of showcasing so many of the new releases. Guess that’s why you’re so successful.

    I hadn’t even dreamed of a bigger version of the Limitless Layer Circle dies, but it makes so much sense and look so versatile. Healing Touch definitely fulfills a much needed niche for me – I make lots of cards of friends who are not feeling so great. My favorite card is the 3rd one though I love the innovative edger die use on the 4th card.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    katevdp says:

    Healing Touch is just what I have been waiting for – they are the perfect heartfelt sentiments. With so much going on with those I love, sadly, I see this being a much used stamp set. For now, it will have to go on my wish list – with a large portion of Australia under water at the moment (including some family and friends) my budget for stamps this month will be donated to the flood appeal – but thankfully PTI doesn’t retire stamps, so when I can purchase again, Healing Touch is first on my list.

    I have been to too many funerals lately and the Healing Touch sentiments would have been so useful in making cards for the people who have lost dear family members. I would hope never to have to use them again, but they would be perfect for those sad occasions. I also love the circle dies. No more trying to cut out perfectly round circles!

    I love what you did with the vellum and the new larger LL dies. Those dies are a must-have to use in conjunction with the other LL dies.

    My heart skipped a beat when I saw the cut-out Turning a New Leaf : I thought that there was finally a die of this amazing set ! Then I realized that it was hand-cut – but hopefully one day soon there will be a die for Turning A New Leaf !

    Love the melon berry card ! Just so soft ! I’ve never purchased a YOF images but all of the beautiful cards that I’ve seen with those are encouraging me to try them.

    Thanks for sharing your creativity !

    Love the new products revealed today. So versatile! My mother has been in an assisted-living facility for the last 2 months recovering from a hip-replacement replacement (yes, she had to have her hip-replacement replaced).

    Susan Polk says:

    I am just so thrilled with the Healing Touch set! It provides such thoughtful sentiments for cards for hurting people – both physically and emotionally. I can think of people I know that can use a thoughtful card like this because they are depressed or “feeling” low. The carnations set is so elegant – you’ve done a masterful job with them also. Thanks for all the ideas?

  • 376
    Steph H says:

    I love how Nicole can take a “junk mail” and be inspired! These are just stunning creations, a great example of how and where an artist can get their mojo! The larger size of these Limitless Layers dies opens up a whole new application which the smaller label-sized dies did not afford us, yet they will work together perfectly. And Healing Touch Sentiments definitely fills a void in my PTI collection.

  • 377
    Susan B says:

    I love the sentiments as they are something that is sorely missing in my collection. The cards are all beautiful as always.

    Oh my. I have the original Limitless Layers and didn’t think I’d need the new one until I saw this . . . I love how it is big enough to be the sole focal point of a card and to hold a sentiment or a bigger stamp. I feel it calling my name now!! And the YOF carnation is beautiful, as always!!
