Introducing Grunge Me & My Hero, My Dad

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the official kick-off for our April Release!  We are so excited about his month being dedicated to the boys!  While most of the products are geared towards teens and toddlers, today I have a few new sets to share with you that can be used for practically any age!

Tiffany Pastor has used her fabulous & unique sense of style to put together two amazing sets that leave the door wide open to endless possibilities.  First up is Grunge Me.  This set is chock full of amazing design elements that can often be found on trendy t-shirts and logos today, making them perfect for so many applications!  You will love mixing and matching, layering and experimenting with all this set has to offer.

The details.

  • Grunge Me will be available for purchase on April 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Grunge Me contains a total of 14 stamps (1 abstract frame, 2 sentiments, 2 paint splatters, 2 birds and 7 additional pattern/background building elements).

The second set she designed for this month's release is entitled My Dad, My Hero.  This sentiment set focuses on grandfathers, sons and dads, making it so easy to create the perfect Father's Day cards, birthday cards and more.  The term "hero" is also used repeatedly throughout the set making it appropriate for projects to encourage our troops and more as well.  The meaningful words and bold titles are truly memorable and will add so much to your stamp collection!

The details.

  • My Hero, My Dad will be available for purchase on April 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • My Hero, My Dad contains a total of 29 stamps (10 titles, 1 hero definition strip, 9 companion sentiments, 1 bracket, 8 accent images)
  • The titles included in this set are as follows: Dad (2, one large outline, one small bold), Father, Grandpa (2, one large outline, one small bold), Son (2, one large outline, one small bold), My Hero (2, one large outline, one small bold) and Papa.

Now that I have introduced you to these two amazing sets, let me share some of my creations!

Rainbow Dad Card
First up, a bright colorful card that could be appropriate for either a birthday or Father's Day!

I used our new Alpha-blocks die (more about this later in the week) to cut a frame with multiple openings from white cardstock.  I die-cut the openings first, then trimmed around the outside to make everything even.  Note how I left some extra space at one end of the frame.

Stamping frame
With the extra space I allowed at the side, I stamped the corrugated pattern with Smokey Shadow ink followed by the outlined Dad title in black (both images from My Hero, My Dad)

Focal closeup
I then die-cut the blocks from six different colors of cardstock: Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado and Ocean Tides.  There is a small dotted rectangle pattern in Grunge Me that fits PERFECTLY in these openings!  *sigh*  I just love it when these happy little accidents happen!

For the interior, I added a sentiment and bracket from My Hero, My Dad.  I am totally in LOVe with this sentiment because it is exactly how I feel about my dad…he made the choice to live his life to the best of his abilities, to work hard, to always be there, which in turn showed me the kind of person he wanted me to be.  It doesn't get much sweeter than that!

Interior strip
I created an accent strip for the interior repeating the same cardstock colors from the cover.  This time I stamped each of the pieces with a small striped stamp from Grunge Me.  In this photo you can also see some of the splatter images I stamped on the Smokey Shadow cardstock with black ink.

And here you can see some additional splatters that were added to the cover.

Green You Rock
Now for some simple one layer cards!  As soon as I saw Tiffany's Grunge Me set I knew I wanted to experiment with layering and building patterns.

Stamping 1
I started with this amazing distressed circle pattern stamped with Ripe Avocado.  Notice how I kept to the rule of three when deciding where to place the images.

Stamping 2
Next I added small splatters using Ocean Tides ink, followed by the dotted rectangle  showcased in my first card.

Green focal closeup
The sentiment and dotted stripe (also from Grunge Me) were stamped in black.  As a finishing detail, I used my Crop-a-dile II to punch holes in the center of the three circle patterns.  

Green down
I have always thought that little peek-a-boo holes like this in a card can make the project more fun, giving it that little unexpected detail.

Pink You Rock Card
Here is the same card in more feminine colors.

Pink focal closeup
Raspberry Fizz & Simply Chartreuse.

Pink down
Both of these cards would be great for nearly any recipient!  And can you just imagine all the fun color schemes you could recreate them in?

Best Dad Card
Another simple card with style coming up next.

Stamping squares
I used this fun square border from My Hero, My Dad to build my focal point.  I stamped the border four times, once each in Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, Ocean Tides and Enchanted Evening.

Best dad focal closeup
I used a single dot from the set to add a bit more vibrancy and color emphasis to the center of each square.  I also added this sentiment combination, being sure to overlap the bold portion slightly over the square pattern, while the remainder of the text was placed to the right of the pattern.

Best dad interior
For the interior, I used some additional sentiments and accented the side with a single square image from the set, again repeating the colors that appear on the cover.

Best dad down
If you look carefully, you can see how I added two embossed lines at the edge of my card base using my Scor-pal.

Hello Friend Card
To shake things up a bit, I recreated the same card, only geared towards a more general use/recipient.

Hello focal closeup
The strips of squares & dots were stamped in Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Spring Moss & Ripe Avocado.  The sentiment (from Think Big Favorites #3) is added in black.

Hero Card
I wanted to be sure to showcase how the My Hero, My Dad set can be used to create more rustic projects rather than just modern looks.

Star closeup
I stamped the hero definition strip vertically with Dark Chocolate ink and then added the corrugated border alongside it with VersaMark.  The star was created with the Seeing Stars dies.  I die-cut the largest star first from Dark Chocolate cardstock, then ran the star through my die machine a second time with the medium star centered on it.  Before adhering it with foam dimensions, I stamped the distressed circle image from Grunge Me in the center and highlighted some of the circles with an E55 Copic.

Sentiment closeup
This sentiment combination was stamped with Dark Chocolate ink.  I colored the interior of "Father" using my E55 Copic once again.

I think this too could look fabulous in a variety of colors!

Grandpa card
How about a card for Grandpa?

Stamping background
I started with a white card base and added a stamped pattern to the cover using elements found in Grunge Me.  The dotted rectangles were stamped first using Enchanted Evening ink.  I then added the striped rectangle in all of the leftover spaces.  LOVE, love the way this turned out!

Focal closeup
This wonderful retro-style frame from the set works really well with elements from Modern Basics!  The frame (from Grunge Me) was stamped with Spring Moss ink.  Then "Grandpa" and "an incredible" were added with Enchanted Evening ink. 

And I can't forget to mention the little bird from the set as well.

Red Grunge Card
I have one more set of layered grunge cards for you today.

Adding yellow
This first one started with the corrugated background from My Hero, My Dad stamped in Summer Sunrise.

Adding orange
I then added this fun line & dots image.

Red focal closeup
Last, a few splatters stamped with Terracotta Tile.  And the sentiments are amazing together.  The "epic year" sentiment is from a new set that will be debuting later this month.  

Red down
The "son" portion is from My Hero, My Dad.

Green Grunge Card
Here's the same card in an alternate color scheme and an alternate sentiment.  The colors used for the background are Aqua Mist, Spring Moss & Simply Chartreuse.

Green focal closeup
This beautiful sentiment is from Through the Trees, added with black ink.

Green down

    I thought perhaps I wouldn’t be as interested in the masculine sets since my Dad and grandfathers are no longer here with me. However, I was wrong! I’m loving that corrugated stamp, the splatters and the line of squares. These two sets will be a nice addition to my collection! And it’s only the 10th! Bring it on – I’m getting a tax refund!

    Wow – your cards are amazing! Grunge style is not one I normally gravitate to, so I love how you showcased the versatility of using the sets for multiple occasions and recipients. I love how there seems to be a lot of elements in the sets that can be used individually for more subtle “grunge effects”.

    Sherrie T says:

    I thought, perhaps, I would in fact NOT “need” everything from this particular release, however….it’s not looking good (for my pocketbook) so far. Really REALLY incredible samples! Although this is not the direction my cards usually go, I could see myself having fun creating with these sets and could definitely use some masculine versatility in my collection.

    I loved them all… U would not believe me if I said, I gazed at them all droolingly drooping…. (I know it isn’t a word so what, it lets me express my state then… ;)That has inspired me sure to use some of the stamps that were just lying around since months…. They had these weird designs on them, but VOILA! I can put them to use in an awesome manner… Thanks again for sharing…. Hugs)))

  • 66
    Donna M. says:

    I really like the open alphabet words on the cards. Looks like a go-to particularly when a male card is needed (& I have virtually no stamps for those occasions). Also, like the alpha-die. Very nice!

  • 67
    Brooke says:

    I love all of the building and accent images with these two sets. Particularly the corrugated border and splatter images. Male cards are always the hardest and right now I have more men in my life than women! I’m totally outnumbered!

Looking forward to another fabulous PTI release:)

    My word, Tiffany’s sets are so perfect for the men in my lift! I’ve never had children, but my father and brothers are the men to whom no other men can live up to, which is probably why I’m still single! 😉

    Sets for men are among my favorites in my stash and I can’t wait to add these to it!

    Thank you!

  • 102
    Susan W. says:

    I have to be honest. I didn’t think I’d like the Grunge at all. But I LOVE it!! You and the PTI DT did a fantastic job showcasing it!!

  • 103
    Stephanie Washburn says:

    AMAZING! So many great projects showcased today and these sets seem to make designing masculine cards EASY! I love it! Can’t wait to get my hands on these!

  • 104

    I love, love, love that grunge set! It’s the perfect set to create cards for the teenage boys in my family. Love it!!!

  • 105

    I too was thinking I wouldn’t have any use for these particular stamps, then I saw them…I’m hooked. I love the Grunge Me, the paint splatters. Are the dots and lines from Grunge Me or My Hero? I really like your use of the Modern Basics images on the Grandpa card and am happy to say I already own that one!
    Very nice cards!

  • 106
    Sheila M Jones says:

    These are so versatile!

  • 107
    Kathy H says:

    To be honest I’ve been afraid of buying too specific of stamps because I was worried they wouldn’t be used enough to justify the expense (although I have admired them greatly!) But you’ve changed my mind today! Not only will I be able to make great masculine cards for my dad, husband and son (and send a batch to OWH) but I can use them for the amazing women in my life (my daughters are two of them!) While Through the Trees has always been a favorite of mine, I love Grunge Me and My Hero, My Dad too!

  • 108
    Carla Grace says:

    What a great variety shown with this grunge concept. I never knew there could be so much versatility with a masculine set. I am excited to see more. My projects are mostly on the feminine side, but I may cross over to the other side with your amazing display of samples!! Great job!!

  • 109
    Lili Worley says:

    How cool these new sets are! Not only they are masculine (which I always wanted!) but you can also give them a twist and make the girly too! TFS 🙂

  • 110
    Teresa says:

    Didn’t think the masculine sets would be something I would use a lot but I’m so glad I was wrong! Love these ideas for the men in our family. There goes my catch up month off 🙂

  • 111

    The grungy style stamps look like such fun to work with. I like the paint splatters – I could use that every time I made a little mistake on my card and no one would guess!! I really like these card elements for my sons and husband, but I’m so impressed with the feminine cards using the same elements with the ‘girly’ colours.

  • 112

    Wonderful I so needed more male card ideas and stamps. I love them all your so creative!

  • 113
    Tracy Burtt says:

    Woah! I love the paint border, and I love these cards! Wonderful work, Nichole! Great to see how versatile the cards can be with just the sentiments changed.

  • 114
    Sandra K says:

    I like that this set is more to make cards for the men in our live. Love it.


  • 115
    glorie says:

    Love the versatility and the modern look that you showcased. And the alternative color schemes show that these stamps can be used for any recipient. Fabulous ideas Nichole!

  • 116
    Katie Haymore says:

    I am sooooo excited to see “guy” stamps. When I go to make cards for my boys it is always such a challenge because there is just not that much out there geared for the “masculine” look! Thanks so much PTI…these are definitely on my “to purchase” list! Love Love Love them!

  • 117
    Melissa Sibert says:

    I didn’t think this release would be that appealing to me based on the peeks, even though I have two sons. However, in true PTI form, Nichole, you have made these two sets look like awesome must haves. Can’t wait to see some of the other stamps now.

  • 118
    Vickie Lee says:

    All of the cards are fabulous. Love the grunge set and the die. Another fantastic month!

  • 119

  • 120
    Tanya C. says:

    Love the grunge set, and the different design elements in both set. So many options. Beautiful cards!

  • 121

    wow! those cards are amazing…I’m not sure how you can choose just one set as a favorite..I really love the grunge me set and it would be one of the first ones I would purchase…then the one with the circles, the dots and stripes are awesome too…..
    Thanks for all of the inspiration

  • 122
    Sara Spencer says:

    Really fun sets! Love this new direction of PTI stamps. The fonts on the sentiments I saw today are just fabulous. Can’t wait to see what the alpha block die is all about either.

  • 123
    Fleur de Lo says:

    I’m loving the grungy textures of these! So many possibilities. We are going to have loads of inspiration for masculine cards at the end of this release. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  • 130
    Oralia says:

    I LOVE both of these sets because they’re SO versatile, but if I had to choose just one, it would be Grunge Me. You have created such wonderfully different cards which means one can get so much use from each of the stamps in this set. I can’t wait to start using them!

  • 131
    Deb F. says:

    Love all the grunge elements. They would be great to use on all my masculine cards.

  • 135
    Susan Polk says:

    Wow! I just love these new sets. I can see using them for my son, my husband, my nephew and coworkers. Lots of teen girls are into the grunge
    look too. These sets will really help round out my male choices. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration as usual!

  • 136

    Gorgeous cards! I love the versatility of all the stamp sets! The Grunge set is really catching my eye. I love them all though so please don’t make me pick! LOL!

  • 137
    kathleena says:

    I am very happy to see that once again, you have created sets that have a specific purpose (for the men), but that are so versatile they can be used on cards for a multitude of purposes! Amazing.

  • 138
    stampyblock says:

    These cards are great inspiration. I struggle with “manly” cards and these are brilliant! I love the simplicity and the colors. I love the grungy images, the “you rock” and the “epic year” saying. They will be awesome for man and boy cards. Thanks so much for helping me out with “boy” cards.

  • 139
    Barbra says:

    Sets for the boys! Fantastic! Can’t wait for tomorrow!

  • 141
    Gertine says:

    Wow! Love both sets! The grunge set was a surprise. I would have never thought of something like it, but seeing what you created with it, makes it a definite favourite. Thank you for showing so many great man-boy cards, I always struggle with them….

  • 142
    Sallie says:

    The new set has a wonderful graphic quality and coupled with the new “guy” set really opens up the possibilities of some great masculine-oriented cards. Many look to have that “clean & simple” look, but with some excitement.

  • 143
    Lori Oglesby says:

    I was really disappointed about this release until today! I’m really impressed with Grunge Me. It looks like it could be really useful for all the cards I make for my high school students. Grunge Me looks like it will go in the “need” colunm!!!!!

  • 144
    Melissa says:

    I’m so looking forward to all your sets this month! With my husband and three boys…I need plenty of boy sets! Love what you’ve shown so far!

  • 145

    Who knew that grunge could be so fun? I was thinking I wouldn’t “need” any sets this month! Thinking now that I was wrong! Thanks for all the inspiration and the chance to win!

  • 146
    Paula I says:

    I love these sets, the grunge look and layering effect is great. I think these sets would work great for creating cards for coworkers and for the High School Wrestlers that my husband coaches! Looking forward to seeing more.

  • 147
    Aimee says:

    I am so in love with these samples… these sets make it look easy to make a masculine card… I have such a need to get sets like these…

  • 148

    Just when I thought i came upon a PTI set that wasn’t calling my name…I’m new to PTI and still struggle with layering. You show such techniques that even novice stamper can master…Thank you, thank you!

  • 149
    Kathleen says:

    I would make cards for my son & his friend’s birthdays. I never quite know what to do with those, but I don’t want to BUY cards when I have spent all this money on supplies! I’m really looking forward to a couple of these sets to help me build fun “cool” cards for these boys! Thanks for the inspiration, Nichole!

    Ellie A. says:

    Oh wow I am head over heals for that grunge set I can see finally my male cards resolved. I can see cards being made for both of my sons friends as well I wouldn’t be limited into what I will be able to use for their cards. THIS is the answer I’ve been waiting for!

  • 156
    Laura B says:

    Love this set! I am always looking for ideas for my dad, husband and sons! I love the You Rock Card in the green and pink!

  • 157
    Kim G says:

    Wow, great inspiration on sets I didn’t think I needed, now I do. Would of loved to have the saying for my Dad, about integrity regarding the challenges that come his way, his birthday is April 15th and his challenge was dealing with my Mom’s Alzheimer’s and how he was an inspiration to all of us in how he handled it. She was diagnosed in 1999 and just passed away Dec. 28, 2010. They missed their 60th wedding anniversary by one week. Great cards!!

  • 158

    Okay, WOW! The Grunge set is so on-trend and amazingly versatile for those hard-to-create masculine projects. I can see myself turning to this time and time again. My favorite is your first card with the bright color blocks paired with Smokey Shadow. Brilliant!

  • 159
    Jamie Nania says:

    I really like how you show a male version and a female version of the cards. I don’t have any Dad sets so this will be perfect. Can’t wait to see more as I have two boys! The alphabet block die looks interesting as well!

  • 160
    Jen A says:

    Such fresh and fun ideas! I’m enjoying all the men and boy images/sentiments. Can’t wait to see more!

  • 164
    Karen Murray says:

    Love Grunge Me! I have brushes like this that I use in Photoshop and always thought it would be great to have a stamp set like this…now I will.

  • 168
    Becky P. says:

    I am loving the grunge set. I get so intimidated by masculine cards, that I don’t make too many of them. I would make cards for my dad, my brother, and my kids’ uncles. Also, my son’s friends for their birthdays. I like how this set could instantly be used for girls as well. The hero set looks fun too. I am absolutely in LOVE with the Dad card you first showcased today. That is a showstopper!

  • 169

  • 175
    Loricabo says:

    I love the splatter, and the corrugated look. I tend to think of these types of images as more male-oriented, so I particularly appreciate how you showed their feminine side.

  • 176
    Michele B says:

    Oh, WOW…not sure what to say about these sets, but your cards are just great! Have always wanted to try layering my stamps to get that grunge effect, but never had the stamps to do so…these are perfect. With one little 5 year old boy and another who is 8 going on 18, these are perfect. Thanks to you and your team for such fabulous work. Cheers!

  • 184
    Linda says:

    Today is a prime example of why I love PTI!

  • 188
    Lauren says:

    I’m stunned!! From the original sneak peeks, I was sure that I wouldn’t have a use for this style stamp sets. I’m just not a “grunge girl”. But, wow!! I truly love what you’ve done with these sets! Although they have a grunge feel, they are still very classy and tasteful. They are unlike anything I have. Can’t wait to see the full reveal!!

  • 189

    Perfect masculine/teen sets! I don’t do many masculine cards but I love these grungy images. You guys are amazing!

  • 191
    Mary says:

    At first I thought I wouldn’t use a set like this, but after seeing how you used them for both masculine and feminine cards I can think of lots of ways. I would make cards for grandpa, and my son and maybe a few teenage girls in there too. Can’t wait to see the rest of this release.

  • 192

    These sets have to be THE coolest masculine/boys sets I’ve ever seen! I think my son would actually be excited to give one of his friends a card using this set – and that’s saying a lot!

  • 193
    Karen says:

    I must admit I was skeptical about the grunge set but I love what I see so far. I love the ease of making awesome looking cards with minimal effort for all those guys in our lives. These sets are winners!

    Ok Nichole…you said you were going to give us a “break” with this release….First of all, I can’t believe that anyone would even think of suggesting such a “break”!!!!! Second of all, mission not accomplished 😉 I love them all!!!!!!!!!

  • 205
    Stacy W. says:

    It is nice to see some ways to put together the graphic elements. That is always so hard for me, so I tend to shy away from those types of sets. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • 207
    Renee V. (happystamper05) says:

    Such a fun release! Your projects are truly inspirational! I love how you showcased them to not only be masculine but ‘everyday’ cards too!

    Your samples today are all so AMAZING, Nichole! Love how you’ve showed us the versatility of these sets! I’m really loving that grunge set!

  • 209
    Ann says:

    Love that grunge – but I’d rather call it “distressed” as I’m rather too old for grunge I fear! But it will be on my list for sure. We’re an all girl family as Dad and Granddad are no longer with us and I don’t have brothers but I really really like the stamps I’ve seen and will enjoy creating abstract patterns for my projects with them.

  • 210
    Monica L says:

    WOW! And yesterday I said I fit into the category of not needing the masculine genre of stamps. Who cares about NEED–now it is a matter of WANT!!! Love the grunge look and especially appreciated the way you showcased their flexibility and more feminine side with different color takes and a variety of sentiments!! Great job!!

  • 211

    Wow, I like all the projects. I would most likely reach for the grunge set the most, but I do like what I see with the tree set. I would love to have some of the versatility in my collection. 🙂

    Katie B says:

    love the grunge and so excited to see some man stamps.

  • 246

    Lovin’ grunge me! Looks like that set could be used a million different ways. The my hero, my dad set will definately fill a hole in my stamping collection. The outline Dad and grandpa are my favorite sentiments, I love the font used. We’ll be able to make some amazing man and teen cards with the combination of these two sets.

  • 247

    WOW! I’m really thrilled with the samples today! I wasn’t sure whether the masculine and grunge stamps would be something I would use, but now that I see the samples I think they are versatile enough to go across a range of styles. Yipee!

  • 256
    Michele L says:

    I’m really excited to see stamps geared towards men/boys. I’m hosting a PTI swap on SCS and coincidentally that is one of the categories. So this is just perfect!

  • 257
    Lea Ann H. says:

    From the sneak peeks, I didn’t think I would be too interested in these sets. But, once again, you’ve proven me wrong :). I can see using the grunge set for all the little ones in our neighborhood who are outgrowing “cutsie” way too fast! And the hero/dad set for friends and relatives serving our country. The sets seems to be incredibly versatile. Thanks again!

  • 258

    I love everything I’ve seen so far! I love grunge!

  • 259

    i really loved the last 2 cards…love the pattern you created at the bottom…almost like a grunge garden of sorts! cute cute! can’t wait to see what’s next. xoxo andie librandi…

    Barb W says:

    Nichole, you are doing it again. I really thought I was going to be good this month, but you have changed my mind. I can honestly say ‘I don’t do grunge’ but you are changing that statement. This grunge is a clean, simple, elegant grunge and I’m going to do it. I love your cards today!

  • 261
    Kari D says:

    ….and here I thought THIS was going to be the month when I could ‘catch up’ since I have very limited young men in my life. Ah, I thought, finally I can get those sets I have on my wish list because EVERY MONTH there are some MUST HAVE sets. BUT NO!!!!! I LOVE the corrugated and spatter patterns! OH MY! Thanks for a chance to win them….and more!

  • 262

  • 278
    Gail E says:

    What absolutely beautiful sentiments! I always find it a challenge to make them cards for the men in my life. I wish my dad was still alive because I most definitely would have made him the card with the verse “You chose to live the live…” I see so many possibilities with this set. Thanks for a terrific start to this month’s releases!

  • 279
    Ashley A. says:

    WOW! I love all of these masculine sets, my favorite is the Grunge Me set. But they all are great! They all would make a great addition to my PTI closet 🙂

    Oh, Nichole, these sets weren’t even on my radar during the sneak peeks but now I think they’re must haves! I love the cards you made and I especially love when you made the same card in a different color scheme for a different occasion! Talk about showing off the versatility! Can’t wait to see what else this week has in store!

  • 282

    Since I only have boys, I always need masculine cards. I think the corrugated background is so awesome and I can see using it a ton! Love the projects today!

  • 284
    Jaime Aldridge says:

    Awesome, Nichole! Thank you for all these examples. I like how you showed the masculine card and then a more feminine one. It helped me see how versatile these sets are. I am getting them all for sure! This will fill that whole in the ‘boy’ sets that I have. Thank you!

  • 294
    patty thomas says:

    I have been wanting to try a bit of the grunge look since it is so perfect for teen cards but have been afraid to take the plunge. These sets look perfect for my first try and now I’m anxious to get my feet wet!
    Fantastic cards and great stamps!

  • 295
    Janet says:

    I’m currently in the process of “trying” to add some masculine cards to my stash and I’m having a very hard time. These sets would work perfectly! It seems like I have mostly flowers and all things girls! Thank you for helping make it easier to make a card for the “men” in my family (big and small)!

  • 303
    Emily W. says:

    I don’t really know who I’d make projects for with this set, but they are still such beautiful examples. Your one-layer cards are so inspiring, especially with the Think Big sentiments. I do not know if I would buy these sets (although trust me, there are plenty of others to go into my cart in their place), but it would be a real treat to win them just so I could experiment!

  • 304
    Linda says:

    It is so exciting to see so many sets focused on our favorite “males” in the family. Great way to make them stand out.

  • 311

  • 312
    Ruby says:

    I just love the background stamps which means a multitude of combinations. I’m always lacking for just the right DSP so this will go a long way to eliminating that problem. Tks for sharing, love your products!

  • 316
    Renee Lynch says:

    I really didn’t think I would be interested in My Hero, My Dad since I lost my Daddy a few years ago…
    would buy it a million times over if it meant I could have him back though.
    But with all the other elements that have been included…
    it’s going on my list…
    for love-of-my-life-man-that-I-married…
    my little loves-of-my-life…
    even for friends and relatives in service
    Beautiful, beautiful cards.
    Thanks so much for the inspiration.

  • 323
    Patsy in Idaho says:

    I love all of the samples shown today but especially how you showed a masculine sample and then a neutral or feminine alternative. I have many brothers-in-law and nephews, so I can see lots of uses for these.

  • 324
    Chris Simon says:

    And here I thought that a masculine-themed month would be less expensive for me! I love the grunge elements and all of the layering possibilities. Thanks, too, for showing color variations of the cards. It’s amazing how different they look. I’m looking forward to getting Grunge Me together with Distressed Stripes,

  • 325
    Susan B says:

    I’m amazed at how you take a style that normally wouldn’t appeal to me and alter it so that I like it! I also like that new Alpha-blocks die – can’t wait to see more of that!

  • 326
    Cathy Weber says:

    Grunge Me is a direct challenge to me to think outide of the box! I never in a million years thought I would be able to create a card with this theme. Grunge Me is so creative and I think I will actually be able to pull it off! I love it.

  • 327
    Janette Childs says:

    These sets are a lot more versatile than I originally thought. Your artwork is beautiful, and I am excited to play with these!

    I love the Grunge Me set. It looks so universal with building backgrounds and for so many men in my life, I could use this no problem. I have my Great Grandfather, Grandfather, Father, Husband, and 2 sons. Boy oh Boy, I think I could get real inky!LOL Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  • 331

    Holy cow…once again, I’m in awe of all the craftiness goodness. 🙂

  • 332
    Beth Bo. says:

    I love the Grunge elements set. I so often feel like my cards need just a little something along the edge that’s not necessarily a focal point but adds to the overall look. This looks like it would fit the bill. Thanks for all the amazing cards. Your style is always inspiring!

  • 333
    Nicole Zemla says:

    I love all of the sets. I am so excited for these boy sets since I am surrounded by boys. Boy sets are not as much fun to buy as girl sets, but with PTI that is not the case. I cant wait to get my hands on these.

  • 334
    Becky K. says:

    Oh I love that grunge set! I looove the paint splatter and the corrugated stamp especially!

  • 335
    Marcia Truslow says:

    I, certainly, am not into grunge but with 7 grandkids between 10 and 15, they ARE!!! These new sets would solve my yearly pile of what-to-do for birthdays and other celebrations for all of them. The color block card for your dad is sensational! Love that…

  • 336
    Connie Fisher says:

    When you asked a while back what we would like to see in stamps, I said I really liked the graphics on guys Tshirts and had tried to create something like them without much success…..Tiffany must’ve seen inside my head because she couldn’t have designed the Grunge Me set any more perfectly. It is exactly what I have been looking for!!!!! Nicole your cards are awesome. I can’t wait to get my hands on these sets—Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  • 337
    Maureen Plut says:

    what a cool set with so many possibilities!! Love that grunge set background 🙂

  • 338
    Sonia says:

    I think I would use these sets to create cards for some pretty cool female friends of mine! I LOVE the way the sets can be done with softer colors or vibrant pinks and oranges to make them feel so different. The cards you made are so cool, Nichole!

  • 339

    Deanna Jean says:

    Well so much for me having a catch up month. You have amazed me once again Nicole. I love how you combine elements from different sets. I stuggle everytime I sit down to make a masculine card. These sets will make it so much more enjoyable. They can be used for any age and for girls too! to a great release.

  • 341

    Ok, these sets are way cool! I love your examples using them! I would get a lot of use from these sets making cards for my husband, step son, and my 3 teen nephews! I especially love the grunge images with the splotches and circles! I would get endless uses from these sets! Thanks so much for the chance and inspiration!

  • 342
    Vicki B says:

    The grunge set is definitely versatile! I was not sure I liked it until I saw how the other DT used it in various feminine colors. Wonderful!
    Of course my fave right now is the flower fusion! Simple love these little sets!

  • 343
    Karen says:

    I echo the sentiment of a poster who says that grunge has frightened her. Thanks for the step by step details of how to do it. They are all great!! I hope that you introduce Guidelines 3 paper (for rectangles) sometime in the near future. I particularly love your stamped background paper and doubt that I could get it as straight as yours.

    Although I thought this might be my “catch-up” month, was I wrong!! I might have known, as you always show the versatility of the stamps you bring to market.

    Thanks for an opportunity to win some. 🙂

  • 344
    Alyssa P says:

  • 346
    Jeni says:

    I really like the Grunge Set & the Corrugated Stamp from the My Hero, My Dad set. I can really see myself using the Grunge Set on those males cards. Now, if the Corrugated Stamp had just been included with the Grunge Set…it would have been perfect 🙂

  • 347

    So excited about the masculine sets this month! With a hubby and 3 boys in the house, these will be must have sets!

  • 352
    Carolyn R. says:

    I had my shopping cart full and ready to go… Until I saw the images this morning! Now I am going to wait so that I can add the grungy and Dad/hero sets to my cart. I was thinking that I didn’t really need to get masculine stamps because my husband and two little boys aren’t into the card thing anyway… but the sets are really versatile! Love, love, love it!!!!!

  • 353

    You certainly know how to show the magic of your sets! Looks like the grunge stamps can be used with almost anything…love how you’ve created backgrounds for your sentiments and how Betsy kissed her love bug to create a perfectly different and masculine style. So clever!

  • 354
    Mel Tallman says:

    I am not a grungy sort of person but I would like to try it. It would be easy to get started with these stamps. Your cards are great. Where do you get your inspiration?

    rieca says:

    I have been looking forward to this all week. What a great start to the launch. i love all of what i have seen. i
    think like many of your customers my biggest gap is for men and teens; this will definately help fill my hole!

  • 369
    Mary Henesey says:

    ooh, I’m really loving the grunge look. It could have have so many different uses and could easily be used for cards for males or females. Can’t wait to see the rest of April’s release!

  • 370
    Cindy H. says:

    Even though there are no boys, dads or grandfathers in my family right now, I am loving that grunge set and the My Hero, My Dad, too. Nichole, you and the PTI design team have made everything very appealing. I think I’m going to have the same struggle selecting sets this month, too 🙂

  • 371
    Kelly in Canada says:

    These male-focused cards are awesome but I love how you showed that the same layouts can be used for other cards. I also love when you show what you’ve done to the inside of a card. I love adding stamping to the interiors of my cards. Thanks for some great inspiration today!

  • 372
    Bernadette Lew says:

    Just when I think I’m safe from some sets, Nichole comes and dazzles with her creations. My dad, father-in-law, and all grandfathers have passed away, so I did not think I needed My Dad, My Hero, but I so love the elements included with the set. As Nichole demonstrated, they can definitely be used for cards for anyone (as long as you don’t use the sentiments). And I love how they work really well with the images from Grunge Me (so much so that I wish the images were all in one set). I also love the card where Nichole combined Grunge Me with Modern Images – like they were made for each other. I have 2 boys, so I’m looking forward to the rest of the release. I hope I win one of the prize packages – otherwise, I may have to hit the “I Want It All” button.

    Lisa J says:

    Stunning, as always! I promise to give these sets a good home (if I am lucky enough to win!)… 🙂

    Tammie Koehnen says:

    Really loved the many cards you created with this new grunge set Nicole. VERY versatile/flexible set. Who would I make cards with this set? It would be perfect for my grown up step-son, grandson, nephews, and ANY teenager would love this kind of a card! Great inspiration.

  • 375
    Tabby A. says:

    Let me just say…I ADORE the grunge set! Wish I could order it today!

    Fantastic, Nichole!!! I’m excited to get my order placed and it is only the first day of the count down! AAAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!

  • 376
    Lyn Amenitsch says:

    I love the manly sentiments and look. Thank you for all your creative inspiration!

  • 377

    I have like ZILCH when it comes to masculine stamps sets and I like the versatility in this! I really like the patterns and I appreciate how you showed how just a change in color could make something go from boy to girl!

  • 378
    Robin says:

    Love all the cards today! They are so creative and I love how they can work for both boys and girls with the background sets depending on the colors you choose to use. I also really like how many parts have a background component.

  • 379
    Cheryl I. says:

    I didn’t think these stamps were for me and my style, but I’ve totally changed my mind. I love how you showed to layer and to use color. I guess I pictured a rough looking black and dreary card, but this has the grunge style with lots of life. I would use these sets for masculine birthday and holiday, but also for general encouragement cards regardless of gender. I love the My Hero My Dad set. Every stamp would see ink! Thanks for the chance to win! I need them:)

  • 380
    Miki says:

    I’m so excited to see some boy stamps!! It’s harder to find boy images out there I’m loving these from PTI. I also love how you’ve shown how a simple change of colors can make a stamp set go from boy to girl!

  • 381
    Kathy Mc says:

    Your creativity is so influential. Didn’t think the Grunge Me sounded like anything I could use, but you proved me wrong. You always show how versatile these sets can be. Looking forward to more on the alpha-blocks die as well as other new releases. Just stunning showcasing by all.

  • 382
    Laura Isham says:

    Amazing!! I did NOT think I would be interested in the Grunge Me set from the peek, but you, Nichole, have won me over with these AMAZING cards! So inspiring!

  • 397
    Janelle says:

    Nichole, I really liked and appreciated how you flipped colors and sentiments in your samples today. It was great to experience the endless possibilities with these sets when it would be so easy to keep a ‘male only’ mentality… The pattern building looks very fun with these sets and I can’t wait try it out myself. Thank you!

    Janis says:

    Love that corrugated background stamp! Wow…the images truly invoke masculinity without the usual cliches. Well done!

  • 404
    Stacy Simpson says:

    This release is right up my alley! Being the Mom of 2 boys, sister to 3 brothers and wife to a cool dude (if I do say so myself) – I am surrounded by men! I LOVE that the My Hero, My Dad set includes the sentiment “Papa”; that is what my boys call their grandpas. The Grunge Me set looks so versatile – I would use that to make cards for my girlfriends too!

  • 405
    Karen H. says:

    Oh my – I am in love! I have many nieces & nephews – all teens. The grunge set is awesome. I have been wanting a good “guy” sentiment set and I love with what I see in the My Hero, My Dad set.

    Nichole – your first card rocks (ok, all of them do, but that one really is clever). I love how you used the alpha die to make the windows and then carried all the elements throughout the card. And thank you for showing how to use these images for feminine cards as well!

  • 406

    Thanks for showing the versatility of these sets just by changing up the colors – wow! The little bird looks awesome!

  • 407
    Anne T says:

    I LOVE the Grunge Me set! I have a 19 year old son and three nephews and I always struggle to make cards for them. This set is perfect!

  • 408
    Janet S says:

    I loved every card you made today, they just kept getting better and better as I read down your blog. Who would have thought that I would like that grunge set? Such a great set and SO happy to get that large “Hello friend”. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.

  • 409

  • 412

  • 413

    What fabulous cards. They certainly pack quite a punch.

  • 420
    Diana Ferralli says:

    Oh my, where to begin. First let me say that after learning that most of the stamp sets this month were geared toward men, I didn’t think I would be buying too many this month, but then after seeing the projects today, I have totally changed my mind. I absolutely must have My Hero, My Dad. And I just love Grunge Me. I have college age kids and can see using that set in making cards for them. Can’t wait to see what else is in the lineup.

  • 421
    C Burke says:

    Today’s projects are wonderful examples of what can be done with masculine sets! The patterns will be perfect for making backgrounds too.

  • 455
    Roxanne says:

    I’ve had my eye on the grunge style stamps in the Stampin Up catalog for quite some time. I think they will be great for birthday cards and mini-scrap books. My hold off is because the SU set is so much more expensive, and I’m trying to minimize my “wood block” stamps and focus on the acrylic due to space issues. So glad to see this come to PT! Count me in!

  • 456

  • 457
    Pamela says:

    “Grunge” is not really my style, and I don’t have a male parent or grandparent anymore, but I LOVE these sets! They will be great on scrapbook pages about my favorite male people, and are perfect in ‘girly’ colors for cool nieces and girlfriends. And I love that little bird- it will be appearing on many cards in my near future!

  • 458
    Kathy McDonald says:

    I was one of your fans who was looking forward to a month to “catch up”. . .well, you’ve changed all that! Nichole, these cards are amazing. The last one is my favorite, because I love its simplicity and the colors you used. I don’t have a need for a lot of masculine stamp sets, but I can see that these sets are versatile enough to work for many types of cards.

  • 459
    Cindy S says:

    Oh gosh! You got me with the grunge set! And I love the way you used the feminine colors for a girl card! So many times grunge sets are geared toward the masculine!

    Suzie says:

    I’m excited with these new sets offered! I’m especially excited there will be a stamp that says “PAPA”. This is what my kids have always called my dad and it has been hard to find it in a stamp! I can use this one for ALL occasions! 🙂

  • 464

    Oh, wow!! I really thought this would be a *light* month for me. But I already see that My Hero, My Dad will be going into my cart. What an incredibly versatile set!

  • 465
    Angela Person says:

    I really love all your examples of today’s countdown stamps!! After getting a second and better look at just what these stamp sets include and can create I will seriously have to rethink my belief that I wouldn’t want any of this month’s stamps. I really like the grunge set, I liked how you showcased a masculine and feminine card by just changing the ink you used.

  • 466
    Carla says:

    Wow. These sets really offer a new way of thinking about masculine cards.

  • 467
    Juanita in Ohio says:

  • 474
    Judy Bohne says:

    Each month when I watch your previews, I keep wondering how you continually have so much inspiration to give us! These sets are so much fun and I would send cards to my sons, son-in-laws, and my husband. I also have seven grandsons so these sets would be used.

  • 475

  • 476
    Kimberli Sarsfield says:

    Wow! I’m going to be honest, when I first read that this month was devoted to men/boys I was kind of disappointed and figured I would be filling in my wish list from previous months on this order but WOW! I love both of these sets! The Grunge Me backgrounds are awesome! I can’t wait to make a Father’s Day card for my hubby with that in combination with the My Hero, My Dad since he’s serving in the Air Force. What wonderful ideas and sets!

  • 477
    Linda says:

    These new sets are definitely ones that were

  • 481
    Penny J. says:

    Oh man (no pun intended), am I ever in trouble!! I absolutely LOVE grunge and know my two teenage grandchildren will love it also. No dads or grandfathers here, but might have to get My Hero, My Dad JUST for the corrugated pattern! Ha, that would be one EXPENSIVE stamp!!

  • 482
    Kathy McEntyre says:

    My favorite is the Grunge set, but I also love the My Hero, My Dad set, too. LOVE the corrugated stamp! I’m so excited about the masculine sets coming out this month cause I have 2 boys and we’ve just had 2 little baby boys in our family.

    Amy O says:

    I always struggle to make scrapbook pages for my pre-teen son. You can only use stars and arrows on scrapbook pages for so long, before you start to tire of them. This new Grunge Me set will be so fun to play with! I can see it not only on cool scrapbook pages, but also on birthday cards, tags and gift card holders. Yea, PTI!!!

    Men cards are hard to create. Mine is not the grunge (?) type …so trying to find some balance between that and the all those sport images is hard. These are looking more metro male…sophisticated. Thanks for your design take.

    Awesome examples! When I saw the sneak peeks earlier, I was kind of like, what am I going to do with masculine stamp sets? But I like seeing how versatile the stamps are when used in other projects.

    Wow, your projects are amazing. I wouldnt know what to do with those stamps at first glance, now you have opened up a whole world of possibilities. LOVE it!!

  • 503
    Natalie Winterstein says:

    I would make cards for my brother, husband and male relatives but also having seen the versatility here and the other blogs you could make cards for anyone! 🙂

  • 504
    Jennifer says:

    Sometimes when you go to make a card for a man you go through your sets and all the flowers and flourishes don’t seam to make the cut. It is fun to see cards for the boys.

  • 505
    BarbaraB says:

    Wow, you did a great job of designing cards for these stamp sets. I like how you showed how versatile they can be.

    Tracey McNeely says:

    Love today’s intros, the cards ar fantastic! Once again, endless possibilities. Finally a masculine based stamp set that can be used for so many occassions and for all the men in our lives. Very creative. Definitely a must have set.

  • 507
    janet dowell says:

    I would love these sets. My son is 11 years old and about too old for the cutesy cards I make. These samples would be perfect for him, as well as his Dad!

  • 508
    Debby says:

    Oh I’m loving all the masculine stuff going on this month. The grunge me set is in my basket for sure. I’ve been wanting some boyish splats and such for ages. Fab stuff!

  • 509
    misse336 says:

    I love the masculine sets and how versatile they are – not just sports/animals like most of them are. The CAS cards you made are so creative.

  • 510
    Marge Sexton says:

    I love the Star dies, they are really adaptable for masculine cards; and also the sentiments…perfect; just what my collection is in need of.

  • 511
    Kristen says:

    Stunning samples!!! The sets are so very different and I can’t wait to see the entire sets! They would definitely fill a void in my collection 🙂

  • 512
    Marla J says:

    Love these colorful creations! I really need some manly stamps in my stash. Everything I have is just dripping with lace, flowers, and pearls. Looking forward to the rest of April’s release.

  • 513
    Angela says:

    With a family full of girls, I wasn’t sure about this month’s theme, so I’m really excited to see how the designs are interpreted for more than boys. Some of the background accents are really unique, and I’m smitten with that rainbow card and the cutout star. I’m pretty sure Nichole and her team could sell ice to eskimos.

  • 514
    LJBean says:

    The Grunge is very cool. This will be great for scrapbooking teens, men, sports…

  • 515
    Jan Larson says:

    These new stamps and the cards you made with them are fantastic! I just love the grunge elements — it’s perfect for teen cards (and I need a lot of those right now). I think I need this one!!

  • 516
    Marla says:

    These are wonderful sets so far. I love the texture of corrugated cardboard stamp. The sentiments for the men are just great!
    Can’t wait to see what is in store,

  • 518
    Andrea says:

    I love the grunge look. That set is awesome!

  • 519
    Kathy V. says:

    These will fill the “missing man” hole in my collection. Most male oriented stamps, until now, seem to consist primarily of fishing, cars or nature. Those images simply don’t fit the men in my life. But I also love the idea that by simply changing colors and sentiments, I could use these sets for women too! How cool is that.

  • 520
    Lynne Phelps says:

    I would make cards for my Dad, my Brother-in-law, and most of all my nieces! Love the grunge!

  • 524
    Amy says:

    I love these sets! I am surrounded by boys (and men) and I love Betsy’s use of the My Hero, My Dad set as a military/patriotic, as I am surrounded by soldiers, too. I see many great uses with both these sets!

  • 525
    paula e. says:

    masculine cards are always challenging, but these sets will definitely help to ease that. plus they are versatile enough to use in other ways. thanks for all the inspiration.

  • 526

    While I don’t see myself using all the stamps in this set, there are some pretty awesome ones that could be used anytime. What a nice job on your cards.

  • 536
    Helen says:

    Your samples really show how the average stamper can use these new kinds of sets! I didn’t think I’d gravitate toward many of the offerings this month, but, boy!, was I wrong! I think I must have the Grunge Me set!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  • 537
    ann says:

    Nicole, I love all of your examples. I love your style; these are cards I would make…simple and clean and beautiful. I especially love the Grungy set; it’s so fun and can definitely be used for masculine or feminine cards. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • 538

  • 541

    these sets are amazing! I’m totally in love witht he corrugated stamp. Too cool! These would be so fun to use for making cards for my boys and/or my husband, or any guy in my life, really. I think they’d be great for scrapbooking too!

  • 549
    Janelle says:

    Ah, Nichole. Leave it to you to make me think that I might need a set that I thought I would be able to forego (and get caught up on my wishlist!). By the way, thanks for the chance you gave everyone to catch up by winning their top five yesterday. Ironically, I have five old sets in my cart that I would’ve loved to win… but didn’t read yesterday’s post until 6:59 this morning (and on my phone, no less). Grrr. 🙂 Seriously, though, you’re the best!

  • 550
    patty says:

    I love all of your cards! I LOVE all the cute stamps you used from the Grungy set as well as the corrugated stamp. I will definitely want to add these to my collection. Thanks for sharing and for your generosity with the give-away.

  • 551

  • 556
    Linda E says:

    Ok, I thought this was suppposed to be my month “off.” Apparently not! I love these sets and they are so much more versatile than I originally thought.

  • 557
    katevdp says:

    To be honest, I didn’t think these sets were going to appeal to me. But after seeing your examples, I know I was so wrong! I love the Grunge Me set – and I have 3 nephews who all wear T-shirts sporting these designs. Not to mention my own 2 boys who are sure to wear them in a few years. So – yes – plenty of boys in my life, so that set would get lots of use.

  • 558
    Vivian says:

    Incredible samples. My hardest cards to make are for male family members. Thank you for addressing that aspect of card making.

  • 559
    Cyndy Godin says:

    Loved your cards! With a husband, 2 sons and 3 grandsons (6, 8 and 16), I will find many ways to use these stamps. Thanks for all the inspirations!

  • 560
    Ngan R. says:

    I love these more masculine designs. The “grunge” is a fun concept too. My favorite sample today was the grandpa card–the use of the grunge set with some touches of modern basics makes for a very contemporary card. The little bird is darling (but not too feminine!) on that card.

  • 561
    Debbie S says:

    Nicole, your cards are so creative, as usual. I’d have to say that my favorite set here is Grunge Me. But I love the last card with the sentiment from ‘Through the Trees’… lovely!

  • 562
    Darla says:

    Thanks for designing some stamps that are for the guys in our lives! Beautiful inspiration again today from all the designers!

  • 566
    Sarah Fisher says:

    Those are two very cool male sets! I also really like the new die that was used!

  • 567
    Tammy W. says:

    Just when I thought this would be a “light” month for my wallet, Nichole goes and does it again! WOW! I really thought I would not be needing too many of the “boy” type sets revealed this month, but Nichole proved otherwise – of course! I LOVE the way she showed the same stamps used one way for masculine and then just by changing the colors – BAM! A perfect card for ANYONE – not just boys! AMAZING! I bet Nichole could take mud and stamp something gorgeous with it – she is SUPER talented! Thanks for showing the versatility of these awesome sets (that I should know by now PTI stamp sets ALWAYS have!) I am really LOVING the corrugated cardboard stamp – way too cool!!
    Oh, and I haven’t even looked at the other PTI DT’s projects YET! Sorry wallet, you are in BIG trouble! (again!)

  • 568
    Stephanie J says:

    Wow, you were sure busy, Nichole! Love everything you’ve shown today!!!

  • 569
    Suzy Coborn says:

    I didn’t think these were going to be stamps that I would want to get…but boy, was I wrong! Very creative cards!

  • 570
    LeAnn says:

    Oh, my. I am speechless. Again . . . I have no idea how you do it, but month after month I am completely blown away! I cannot wait to make some grungy cards for my son and other boys. This is EXACTLY what was missing from my stamping arsenal. I cannot wait!!

    I love these grungy images! They are not only perfect for all the males in our family 9that totally dominate vs. females) but love how you showed to use them for the female friends and family in our lives!

  • 579
    Jane says:

    I love the background images! sooo many uses for them.

    one request: this may be a silly question, but is there an easy way to use a stamp (like blocks for the Dad card) with multiple colors without cleaning the stamp between uses?

  • 580
    Kerian B says:

    WOW, AMAZING love what you created with both stamp sets…this would be a must have stamp set for anyone’s collection….thanks for all the super ideas.

    I should have known that even though I have no little boys I would still “need” all of these cuties!

    It’s a good life!

  • 590
    Helen F. says:

    Sooo much inspiration for those really difficult masculine cards. With a husband, father, brother, bil, 3 nephews and 2 grandsons, I think I can keep these stamps sets very inky! Love the “My Hero, My Dad & Grunge Me” sets…also the Seeing Stars dies are really fun. Plus,Nicole, your sample cards are such fabulous ideas to CASE ;o) Thank you for the chance to win!

  • 595

  • 599
    Kathy V. says:

    These sets are just what I’ve been waiting for. I have 19 men in my life as of now and 7 boys under 10 years, so that takes a lot of stamping. And since these sets are so versatile, I can use them for all the girls in my card world. Thanks for such fun sets.

  • 600

    These new sets are definately a different flavor from most of your previous sets, but definately fun! The ideas are already starting to flow… 🙂

  • 601
    Liz R says:

    Love the male focus this month. With 5 brothers it’s always hard thinking of new card ideas for them, so I’m loving what you’ve showcased today. (and love that it can be used for the girls too!) Looking forward to what’s coming over the next few days!

  • 602

    LOVIN’ the looks of that Grunge set! So perfect for making cards for my nephews who are into snowboarding!! Super hip and trendy!

  • 605
    Dawn says:

    I like how the retro style of My Hero, My Dad (especially the square blocks border) coordinates with the style of modern basics. I can’t wait to see more!

  • 606
    Mary Eason says:

    Although all the samples are fabulous, I loved the way Betsy grunged up the car from Enjoy the Ride! Those are the kinds of techniques I forget to use but make such a cool difference. I am so looking forward to this masculine release-I always avoid making masculine cards and these will give me something fun to play with.

  • 607

  • 613
    Rita says:

    Fantastic sets and I love it! I have a house of teen boys and I come from a family of all boys, so I am often at a loss when it comes to cards for them. Flowers are cute, but it’s just not their thing. So thank you for filling this niche, I am totally buying them!

  • 614
    Anna Was says:

    Love the grungy look! It will be fun to have a set or two geared towards the boys in my life. Your creations today were inspiring!

  • 615
    Sandra K says:

    Sweet as! I like the My Father, My Hero card and I also like seeing how some of the layouts. like the son one, could have been adapted from using floral images to the grunge ones and work so well.

  • 616
    Heather Mills says:

    wow, both of these sets look awesome! They totally make me wish I had boys (instead of three girls), but I could so so so use them for brother, husband, father, in-laws, etc. Masculine cards are so tough when you don’t have manly stamps, but these would solve that problem!

  • 617
    Emily says:

    Love the new stamps! I just got my 1st order of PTI stamps … and am already looking at what to order next 🙂

  • 621

    Your cards are simple and elegant…a look that I like very much! I like that they are geared toward the masculine crowd, as this is always a challenge. I especially loved the star kraft card. These sets look very fun!

  • 622

    I’m loving the new grunge textures! The corrugated, splatter, lines and dots – they are amazing! Looking forward to the rest of the peaks.

  • 623

  • 626
    stacy s says:

    Wasn’t sure how I would like these sets, but now that I’ve seen them in action, they are awesome! Great sample cards, as usual, and would fill a need in my stamp collection!

  • 627
    Amber R. says:

    Every once in awhile, I see previews and think, oh, I won’t need that set. Then, the countdown begins and you ladies wow us again! I am very excited about these sets! The My Dad, My Hero will be great for my dad and my husband – love the phrases! The grunge set is the one I am most surprised by; I think this will fill an amazing void in stamping supplies to now be able to make cards for people like my teenage nephew, whom I usually feel won’t care for a homemade card. I love the samples – great job!

  • 628
    veronica says:

    your aqua, moss & chartreuse card won me over for the grunge! i can see me using the lighter colors of the grunge as background for any card!

    I have 4 boys and my husband to stamp for, so I can definitely see myself using these sets. Your samples are a great inspiration, Nichole!

  • 633
    Beth C says:

    I don’t know if I have a favorite sentiment from these 2 sets but I can’t believe how much I love the grunge splatter and corrugated background. I can see this adding so much to cards and scrapbook pages. Love it!

  • 634
    Rachelle says:

    Love, love all your samples. The currogated background is awesome. I have 2 boys and do daycare for all boys, so as you can imagine I make a lot of cards for boys. Excited for all the stamps sets this month.

  • 635

    Every single one of these is sets is FABULOUS, and I love beyond words how you made so many of your projects in today’s post in a “dual mode”, showing how the same stamps can work for different themes and genders. Can’t wait to get these! You’ve blown me away once again!

  • 636

    For some reason, masculine cards are always the hardest to make. These have got to be the best “masculine” stamps I have ever seen. They are fantastic not only for the men in our life, but for everybody. Thanks PTI for another wonderful release.

    I love everything about this set. It makes great feminine cards as well!

    I am so impressed with your card samples, Nichole!! So creative and totally showcases the wonderful new masculine sets–I really love the background accents and all the fun possibilities with them!!

    Cynthia B. says:

    These sets are AWEsome! As the boys in my family age into tweens and teens, it’s been harder to make cards or craft for them, because “cute” isn’t appropriate anymore. I love the Grunge Me set for that. And the My Hero, My Dad set looks great too – that corrugated background? So cool!!
    Thanks for sharing these awesome projects, and thanks for the chance to win!

    Wow, I absolutely love this set and the fact that you can create manly looking cards and still twist the colors just enough to look great for girls as well.

    This is a definite must have set for me.

    I am seriously loving these sets. I MUST have them. I love all of the different uses, and I love how you showed that these sets work great for girls, too. I will for sure be making cards for the the special men in my life (dad, grandfather, husband, etc.), and I can’t wait to use it on some scrapbook pages for our baby boy to be.

  • 651

    Oh I love the samples! I always have a hard time with the guy cards. Love the grunge, looks like fun!

    Carmen M. says:

    Amazing sets!!! I have 2 sons, a husband, a dad, a brother and 3 brother’s in law, so I could really use these sets… BUT, what I LOVE the most, is that they could be use for girl cards as well. Love how you show the same card with two color combinations!!!

  • 653
    Robin W. says:

    My favorite stamps are the corrugated background and the dots and lines image. I think they not only look great on your cards but also would be fun to use in an art journal!

  • 654

    These are so cool! I can see these will be fun to use to make masculine or teen cards. I especially love the first card!

  • 655

    I am really excited about this release!! I am in need of more male stamps!! Woo hoo!! Love what you have shown so far!

    Amy Nemeth says:

    Oh, man these are awesome (pun intended)! I am the lone female voice in my household, living with my dear husband and two sons. I find making masculine cards sooo difficult, and these sets would make life so much easier. I especially love the layering look. Well done!

    GinnaG says:

    So exciting…… Love this time of the month.
    What a different feel to the release this month.
    The grunge/distressed look is so fresh and something not found in the previous stamp sets. As a Mom of 2 teen boys this has such an appeal to me. Can’t wait. Let the fun begin!

  • 682
    JeanD says:

    I loved ALL the cards. Showing some in 2 completely different colours was great. Grunge me is my fav so far, a definate must buy, so much wonderful texture for jazzing up backgrounds.

    Katie {choc0holic} says:

    What fun! I can see a plethora of uses with as many nephews, brothers, brothers-in-law, etc as I have! So happy it’s ‘guy time’ at PTI!

  • 684

    I love the corrugated image and the paint splatter image! I can see using those for so many different kinds of cards!! What a great way to add texture to a project!

  • 687
    Heather Arsenault says:

    Very interesting stamps in these 2 sets. I love the grunginess of the corrugated stamp which oddly enough is not in the Grunge Me set. The splatters look great on your samples too.

  • 688
    LindaH says:

    Thank you for the wonderful samples…you do such a great job, no matter what the stamp set is. I wasn’t sure about the grunge…but I love it now, after I see what can be done with it.

    K. Craig says:

    Once again, I will be lots of dollars less this month!! All for a good cause imho! Great stuff as usual.

  • 690

    I could use the grunge stamps to make cards for some young men I know in the military. One is a skateboarder who would definitely appreciate the grunge look!

  • 691
    Wendy Todd says:

    From someone who is surrounded by men (big and small!) in my life, all I can say is WOW! I want it all! I can see me definitely clicking the “I want it all!” button for the first time ever this month! I absolutely adore everything I’ve seen today. Both the products and the projects. Love them!

    Robin (scrappintlc) says:

    Loving all the masculine peeks and creative samples so far. I have boys and these will be perfect. There aren’t that many sentiments/stamps that lean towards older masculine cards, these are perfect.
