We have all kinds of fun in store for you today, as we focus on some on-trend new releases as well as some classic staples that will be timeless additions to your stamp collection. Grab a beverage and get comfy as we get crafty in style!
Today we introduce a new $5 year long series from Heather Nichols! This is the first in a series of stamp sets featuring one large word that can be used with a coordinating die cut. This first set features the word "hello" in a fun, stylish script font. The clean, bold companion sentiments will pair up well with the die alone, the stamped word alone or the two used together.
- Wonderful Words: Hello will be available for purchase on February 15th.
- It will retail for $5.
- Wonderful Words: Hello contains a total of 8 images. The “hello” word is just over 3 1/4” wide and 1 1/4” in height. The “from the heart” sentiment is just under 2” wide and just under 1/4” tall. The “there” word is just over 5/8” wide and is just under 1/4” tall.
- A coordinating die will be available for sale separately, retailing for $4. 3-1/4" x 1-1/8"
Irresistibly Ikat is a set that came about after Maile Belles began falling in love with ikat patterns. Ikat is currently popping up in home decor textiles and fabrics of the fashion world. We couldn't be more happy to now bring it to you in stamp form. You're going to love stamping your own designs in your most favorite color combos. Two repeating patterns are include in this set, making it easy to quickly cover a lot of ground when creating a hand stamped background. Also included are two large ikat images, these are perfect for making a statement. Either by stamping a stunning focal point, or if you choose, you could stamp them repeatedly to create yet another unique background. As for the sentiments, the font combo is perfectly irresistible.
- Irresistibly Ikat will be available for purchase on February 15th.
- It will retail for $15.
- Irresistibly Ikat contains a total of 14 images. The largest Ikat medallion image measures 2 7/8 x 2, the row of 4 open diamonds measures 3 x 7/8, the single open diamonds image measures 6/8 x 7/8 and the "Happy Birthday Sentiment" measures 1 6/8 x 1/2.
This new and trendy alphabet is the perfect size for forming your own custom phrases for cards or even unique titles for scrapbook layouts. The stamp set even includes a few extras of the most popular letters so you can format an entire word directly on your acrylic block. Use the stamps with the coordinating dies for even more options.
- Headline Alphabet will be available for purchase on February 15th.
- It will retail for $24.
- Headline Alphabet stamp set contains a total of 59 images. Each letter averages around 1" tall and 3/8" wide. It includes the letters A-Z, two extras of the letters A&E, one extra each of I, O, U, L, N, P, R, S & T. Also includes the numbers 0-9 as well as various punctuation characters.

Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!
For my first project today I have a card that really shows off the new Irresistibly Ikat set. One of the things I LOVE about the way Maile designed the elements in this set is the "texture" they add.
Once your done stamping your paper, it is almost as if you have transformed it into a piece of fabric! I chose to go a simple route and use just one element along with a single color, really emphasizing the detail in the pattern building images. I used Summer Sunrise ink for this. I have aways loved the way Summer Sunrise looks on Vintage Cream cardstock, such a fresh trendy feel.
I die-cut the new Wonderful Words: Hello die from one of our new self-adhesive cork sheets. I simply peeled the wax paper backing off and adhered it to my card front. To follow-up, I trimmed a strip of Aqua Mist cardstock and notched the end with scissors. I stamped the "From the Heart" companion sentiment from Wonderful Words: Hello in Hawaiian Shores onto the strip.
I added a small heart die-cut from Berry Sorbet cardstock. The entire piece was mounted onto a Classic Kraft card base.
My next project is one of my favorites…EVER! It all started with an image from Irresistibly Ikat that features four dots in a row.
I stamped the row of dots vertically, using a rainbow of colors and staggering each impression slightly. Colors used were Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, Simply Chartreuse and Hawaiian Shores. I also used a small single dot to add some additional random accents. Since I used our dye ink for this, I was able to go back in with a damp watercolor brush and soften the look of each dot.
I die-cut the Wonderful Words: Hello die from white cardstock and stamped it with the coordinating image in True Black ink. This was adhered on top of the rainbow pattern with bits of foam tape.
I added "There" from Wonderful Words: Hello stamp set in True Black ink to the right of the focal point. The finished block as adhered to a Pure Poppy card base.
This next project is clean & simple, just the way I like it!
I stamped this chevron-style arrow repeatedly in a row using a fun new color scheme that I found inspiration for on Pinterest (you can check out my Color Me Happy board on Pinterest HERE). Limeade Ice, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Melon Berry and Sweet Blush. I used a paper piercer to add holes down the center of the row as well as a few extras at the top and bottom to form an arrow. I stitched along the holes with white floss. I love how this accent is subtle, but really adds to much.
The sentiment, also from Irresistibly Ikat, was added with Charcoal Palette ink.
All of this was adhered to a Melon Berry card base.
I wanted to go for something bold and bright for my next project and decided to pair up Blueberry Sky and New Leaf.
A little detail I wanted to point out here on the background. If you compare this background to the one stamped in Summer Sunrise at the top of this post, you will see the shadow effect I created here and how it achieves a more authentic ikat look. All I did was stamp each image twice without re-inking, shifting slightly upwards for the second impression. I just an't stop singing my praises for this set! One of the most inspiring sets I've ever used!
For the sentiment strip, I stamped "Thanks" using the new Headline Alphabet, stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Filigree White Embossing Powder. I also added the small "Hey There" sentiment from Irresistibly Ikat beside the bolder word.
I added a few stamped chevron arrows beside the sentiment and trimmed the New Leaf strip with a notch, following along with the lines of the arrows.
All of this is mounted onto a Blueberry Sky card base.
Next, I have a fun monogrammed card that can be customized for any recipient, or even a stack for yourself!
It all begins with Rustic Cream cardstock which was stamped with two different patterns from Irresistibly Ikat in rows. I used Simply Chartreuse, Royal Velvet, Raspberry Fizz and Lavender Moon.
I then die-cut Tag Sale #5 from Raspberry Fizz cardstock and trimmed the top off. I added stripes using Background Basics: Super Stripes and VersaMark ink. I heat embossed the monogram using Zing! Embossing Powder in Leaf. The center letter is from the new Headline Alphabet and the two smaler letters are from the previously released Fresh Alphabet.
All of this is mounted onto a Smokey Shadow card base.
I have one last card for you today, this one focusing on using the new Headline Alphabet stamps with the coordinating dies. I started with a block of Soft Stone cardstock and stamped it with Dot Spot in VersaMark ink, followed by some heat embossing using White Filigree Embossing Powder.
I die-cut the letters from white cardstock and stamped them with a rainbow of colors: Aqua Mist. Sweet Blush, Melon Berry, Hawaiian Shores, Summer Sunrise and Berry Sorbet. The letters were adhered with small bits of foam tape. The small star used at the bottom of the exclamation point is from the Super Stars Border die. I colored it with a Gold Spica Pen to add just a touch of sparkle to my project.
I hope you have enjoyed all the creations that I have shared with you today! Are you falling for ikat like we are? Has another new series made it's way onto your wish list? We would love to hear your initial thoughts on everything we introduced!

Michele L says
To answer your question I wasn’t too crazy about the Ikat stamp. However After seeing your samples and how to use them it’s actually quite pretty! It’s a must have for sure!
Lauri Gulotta says
I love the potential to create fabric-like backgrounds with the Ikat set–what a fantastic idea!
Jacklyn Jessa says
I’m super excited about the series by Heather Nichols. I love the big words with the additions that go along with it!
Allison T. says
I love the wonderful words I already have and I am crazy about this new series! My mind is racing with ideas to use the set and die!
Thanks for the chance to win!
tammy butz says
I don’t know how you do it – every month! To be honest, Ikat, was one of the sets I scratched off the list – didn’t really care for the sneak peek image. But, now that I see all the amazing projects. I might have to put it back on (I really loved the chevron, dot rows and the open diamond row images).
Jen Rzasa says
Your fave card is my favorite too! I love the versatility of the new ikat set!
It has been a long time since I have been “I must have this set ASAP. I can’t wait for release night.” I just LOVE Maile’s IKAT set. The samples you created really showcase the set. Also, it looks like so much fun to play with. A “I can’t wait” purchase for me.
I love, love the “Hello There” card. Love the inspiration for the wonderful IKAT set.
lisa m says
love your last card and your favorite one too. I don’t care for the ikat set it is just not my thing, looking forward to Heather’s new series thanks for a chance to win
Christine Nixon says
I, too, am not sold on the Ikat (reminds me of Tie died) but with the samples shown today, I may have to give it another consideration. HOWEVER – the set that Heather has with the large focal word and smaller sayings did catch my eye immediately as did the large alphabet. Love fonts and mixed ones take my breath away! Can’t wait to see what the rest of the release brings!
mary lewis says
I do like the new Ikat set. What a quick way to put a card together.
Kelly Schirmer says
I am loving the new Wonderful Words dies by Heather! Such a fun idea to mix and match with other stamps and pretty patterned papers. Lovely color combos today…hope I get to play, but definitely saved the download so that I can keep these ideas for a rainy day!
Anja curvers says
Wow that IKAT is really a must have one I love it. And especially in combination with the new word HELLO. Amazing how you always manage to give that inspiration love, love it.
Jessica Wekenman says
Oh, yes! I have fallen in love with the Ikat patterns…and I couldn’t be more trilled with the release of the stamp set! It will be a sure thing on release night for me! I love all your cards today as well as the design team!
Can’t wait to see more of Heather Nichols new series. Love it!!! Once again love all the projects today. Thanks for another fun release!
Great set Maile! Love the IKAT. It is a real statement set.
The IKAT are great! Love all the examples you showed today, especially using water with the stamps! You and your team are an inspiration!!
Carol Doggett says
Not a fan of Ikat, just not my thing….but you guys have made so many beautiful cards with the set!!
Anna Adamiak says
Fabulous set! Leave it to Papertrey to make me wish for something I didn’t know existed! 🙂
Lori Cullen says
The die cut “hello” looks like a lot of fun. I think that series may find its way into my work space!
Jessie McLaughlin says
Oh my Nichole!! These stamp sets and dies are so cool! I am so loving this release!! Happy Anniversary!!
Denise E says
I am definitely gunning for Heather’s new wonderful words series…such a sucker for large words as focal points. Not a huge fan of ikat, but it’s growing on me, seeing some of your beautiful creations. Love the new alphabet…perfect for scrapping titles on pages. Can’t wait to see it all! =o)
Mariët de Groot says
I really love the new serie from Heather Nichols and Dawn McVey but am not to fond of the ikat stampset, but hey there is more then enough left this release month to crash my wallet big time lol, so many great things already have gone on my wishlist.
I love the new hello and cannot wait to see future sets!
Pamela A says
After seeing your samples the Ikat creates a beautiful background,love the fabric texture. But it would not be on my wish list. There is just way to much on the wish list that I would buy if I could.
Josie Dee says
I really do love the Ikat stamps and the gorgeous use of the color combinations. Good work!
Victoria h says
To be honest the ikat set isn’t for me but you often get trends right so i’ll probably love it in a few weeks time!
Luanne Ford says
I just love everything today, and the samples are beyond amazing! Maile’s set is a slam dunk for me!
Amy R says
All of the cards are beautiful. I really like the Hello die cut and stamp set.. I love doing that type of card. I have the holiday words. I wll be happy to have this one as well.
Beth H. says
I wasn’t totally convinced that I would need the IKAT set until I saw Nichole’s “Hello There” card with the rainbow dots…Now I’ve got to have it.
Mary Poutou says
I love the irresistably ikat set and the watercolor wonder set. I really want those sets!!!
Emily M. says
I’m quite a bit more excited about the Ikat set than I initially expected… The more I look at projects used with it, though, the more I like it! I think it will work for masculine cards, too, which is something I always struggle with.
Love the new alphabet!
Deb D says
Love everything I have seen so far…as always!! Really interested in the alphabet and die set.
Isabel Z says
I loved last year’s monthly sets and am really looking forward to the ones being released this time around.
Marlene (cards4u) says
I love the new hello and alphabet!! Thanks for giving us some color combos to work with – I can fall in a rut that way : ) Thanks also for the chance to play!
I was on the fence about the Ikat set, but after seeing your samples, it is DEFINITELY on my must-have list! I’ve been super excited about the monthly word stamp and die combo since you first mentioned it and I’m sure it will become a monthly release that I have to have!
Colleen C says
The ikat set is wonderful. I am always looking for new and interesting background stamps to make cards. I think the new ikat stamp set fits the bill perfectly!
Kim J says
I LOVE the new series by Heather Nichols and can see 12 of those in my future 😉
Amy O says
Oh, my, Nichole! Your ikat projects this morning are SO inspiring! I am always amazed at how you can take such a simple approach and make it look so stunning. Heather’s new series is definitely going into my cart. I love the size of the words and the coordinating dies make it a definite must-have.

Linda Hedfelt says
I was on the fence about the Ikat set, but after seeing your samples, I’m sold. I am super excited about the series of large words and dies from Heather, I really need something like this to give me more versatility in my stamping. Thanks for such great projects.
WOW what great inspiration once again, lovin the new letters!
Continuing to watch the week unfold with new products and inspiration!
Donna M. says
Really loving the new Headline alphabet & dies. As a scrapbooker, I’m always on the lookout for something that can be used for cards and scrap pages, & this fits the bill!Love the “Celebrate” card!
ikat isn’t really my thing… but that’s why there are so many other choices!
I’m most excited about Melissa Bickford new series. I love all that you can do with just so little of a stamp set.
Deb Else says
Still not a big fan of Ikat, but the cards shown today are beautiful….just not my style. But I love the new word set by Heather, and the new alphabet set. Maybe it is a good thing for my budget if there is 1 item not my style. 🙂
Debbie S says
I am excited about the new series from Heather, and I am in love with Dawn’s new flower set and monthly series. So much I need this month. I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Spring Moss Pattern Pack as well. Yippee!! I love this release.
Laura K says
wow! I’m speechless. I must have. those new stamps.
I think the polka dot parade is adorable! I love polka dots and buy most stamps that have them! I’m hoping for a polka dot alphabet some day!
Jennifer Watkins says
I am more of a floral type than the Ikat. The Ikat makes some beautiful cards, but just not my style. The rainbow “Hello” card is fantastic!!! I’m also loving the new color combos in many of these posts.
Jen Treadway says
Fabric was and always will be my first love. So, yes to Ikat.
The Wonderful Words dies are my favorite!
Lori Y says
LOVE the new series from Heather Nichols. The die cut word is the perfect focal point for a clean and simple card. Can’t wait to see what other words show up in this series. The new alphabet is a must have. Your ‘celebrate’ card is perfection–love it!
you had me at hello, the die, the cork, I’m sold… not sure on the ikat to be honest.
Amy Gutknecht says
The Ikat set is interesting – so much texture! I can’t get over how much it looks like fabric! I love the HELLO Wonderful Words die & coordinating set! That’s a must-have!
Nancy Penir says
Heather’s Hello is going into my cart, as well as the ikat. Already have plans for them. Loving the designers each day, for their great takes!
Karen Walker says
Some of your projects today are among my favorites ever as well! You make it so clear how versatile the new Ikat designs are. Love the new alphabet, too!
I had never heard of Ikat before today ~ and after seeing this, I don’t know how I could have made cards without it! Can’t wait for the release. Leave it Maille!
Love the Ikat and the ‘hello’. And love the cards you did with them. Thanks for the chance to win!
Really looking forward to Heather’s new wonderful word series! There is just way too much I *need+ from this release 🙂
Leigh Penner says
Heather’s new series looks amazing, as do the new alphabet stamps and dies!
Susan P says
I am very excited about Heather’s Wonderful Word series! They provide such a nice focal point and so much can be done with the matching die! Ikat is new to me – it’s a little more modern than my style, but the cards you made with it are beautiful!
Geri G says
I am sitting on the fence with the ikat series. Although the DT cards are stunning, I don’t know if I wold get the versatility from this stamp set that I need to justify purchasing it. It is mondern, trendy, hip and retro all at the same time. Might limit the age of the crowd that it appeals to.
Tracey C. says
Like so many other sets that I haven’t been a “fan of” when I see the preview…once they are brought to life in color, they look amazing :). I don’t know that ikat will definitely make it’s way to my collection, but I do love the texture it brings to your projects today! I’m with you — and LOVE that second card with the watercoloring and big bold “HELLO” 🙂 Awesome!! Thanks for the opportunity!!
I’m not sold yet on ikat. But the design team may get to me yet.
Jennifer D says
How fun! I really like the new alphabet set!
see mary stamp says
I always gravitate towards the year-long series introductions. It appears I’ve never outgrown that “collector” phase that children go through. LOL!
Both the Polka Dot Parade and Wonderful Words series are calling out to me, although I also really like the frame die in Dawn’s new series. I’m not really a trend watcher so Ikat is new to me but I’m sure I’ll be blown away once I see how the design team uses it. Love the new Headline Alphabet too!
Sara Mac says
Wow, there are soooo many fun, new products. My head is spinning. I love the hello stamp and die. I think my favorite thing from this post is the new Headline alphabets!
Meagan Boyce says
That pattern looks so fun!
I love the two new series, I think Heather’s word series is brilliant! I wasn’t sure about the Ikat at first, but your samples are amazing!
Melanie Ann MacKenzie says
Love the new alphabet dies and the hello but must say that I am not a fan of the ikat. You make beautiful samples but it is not really something that I would use.
Kim S says
I would not have said that I particularly loved ikat – but I DO love your samples, so it is definitely on my wishlist so I can give it a try!! And a new series from Heather!!?? My bank account is in trouble!
While I’m not a fan of the IKAT, I can appreciate that you are continuing to offer something for everyone. My PTI wishlist just keeps growing!
Hello! Yeah…I love the Hello! And the new font. You can never have enough fonts to choose from!
To be quite honest, this is the first I’ve heard of ikat and I’m very intrigued. It’s such a unique pattern and I can see it readily being used for backgrounds, etc! 🙂
Rebecca Ednie says
I’m not so into Ikat but I’m loving the new die series wonderful words. I hope one of them is baby!
I am a big fan of ya’lls dies and this release has some that will be sure to be on my wish list. Thanks for a great showing.
June K says
Most definitely Wonderful Words series will be mine. I love large sentiments like the TBF and this has dies even. I’m sure I will be buying many of Melissa’s sets which includes a large sentiment. The bunny tail is so adorable.
Love this Hello die! Such a great word:-) Also love the Wonderful Words! Many possibilities.
Leigh Ann Baird says
Love the big hello–so looking forward to the series!
The Ikat set is interesting, but I’m most excited about Heather’s new word series. I love the large hello and I can’t wait to add more large word dies to my collection! I love the ones I already have. The new alphabet is really cool too. Love your projects showcased today!
Sue D says
The Ikat series is perfect for color combinations. Love the big Hello too.
Crisanne D. says
I am so excited about the new Wonderful Words series! Now, about Ikat… I am still trying to like the patterns and feel of it I am seeing lately in textiles. I’m sure that by the time this release is over I will be completely in love with it and need it all over my home!
I literally just added Ikat to my wish list this morning! I love the simple possibilities, and I am all about simple! Headline alphabet really caught my eye also!
Keri H says
Oh, yes, yes, YES! Wonderful Words: Hello – Heather Nichols new series LOVE! Can’t wait to see this series unfold. Great inspiration so far in this release. Looking forward to see what you have up your sleeves for the rest of the week.
Karen (carefree creations) says
Awesome products. I love the Wonderful Words and am so happy that will be a series!
I am really loving the ikat stamp set. It adds such a modern feel to cards which is where i am treanding more these days. keep it up!
Karen Corbett says
Love your ‘arrow’ card using the Ikat chevron image. The watercolour technique looks like a lot of fun and would certainly cover up any of my mistakes!! Thanks for another set of inspiring techniques and cards.
I was not familiar with ikat before and it may have to grow on me, but the projects are very interesting. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
Kathryn A says
I am liking the ikat more and more, and am wondering how it would look on a masculine card, with kraft, browns, etc…. As usual, my creativity is inspired! Love the new alphabet!!
I just have all the flowers rolling around and around in my head! I LOVE them!! (especially love the addition of the dies for year of flowers!
Natasha Kara says
These are fantastic! I have been living all the Ikar designs on Pinterest. I can’t wait to be able to make some trend cards with this set. ?
Betty H says
Not sure the ikat set is someting I’d use but I love the projects that showcased it, especially the watercolor Hello card. Very nice. The new Wonderful Words and Headline Alphabet are a must have for me. Can’t wait for the 15th! Thanks for the inspiration!
Vicki A. says
I love the Irresistible Ikat set. There are so many wonderful new items in this amazing 6th anniversary release! Congratulations!
Monika Davis says
Oh, yes! I do love these, especially the chevron style Ikat. The colors are so pretty and fresh!
Meredith K. says
I am loving that ‘hello’ die! Participating in yesterday’s challenge I learned I really lacking big bold sentiments in my collection and need more, this fits the bill perfectly!
Lee Anne says
What a great post today! I’m loving Heather’s new series. Can’t wait to get it!
I am such a floral go to gal that I have a hard time with the trendy stuff. It is giving us a new challenge though.
I love the new set from Heather Nichols and the matching die! I also love the chevron style arrow from the Ikat set. Your cards are stunning!
I love Heather’s new set, and can’t wait to see what other words are in store for us this year. The new alphabet set looks terrific as well!
I’ve never even heard of Ikat before, but after seeing these examples I love what I see! I love the watercolor dots on the Hello card. Really cool! I also love the new word series. The font on the Hello is really yummy.
Lillian O says
I love the Ikat designs that were showcased today and now I am sold! Totally loving the wonderful words series and look forward to the new releases each month. I don’t know how you all constantly think of these new ideas that I just HAVE to buy…sigh! Enjoying this week tremendously….
Terri E says

I’m liking the new Headline Alphabet!
not sure I like the Ikat set yet. The samples are pretty, but I don’t think it is my style. I love the wonderful words though!
Mendi M says
Absolutely love Heather’s new big word set! This will be perfect in my scrapbook!
Chris Biljan says
Love the color inspiration sheets – combos I would never have thought of…thanks to all the designers for sharing their talents!
My favorite so far is Heather’s new series Wonderful Words!! I love word dies and this series is an absolutely fantastic surprise!! I can’t wait to play!!
Nancy Lempinen says
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new Ikat stamp set, so trendy, I also love Heather Nichols Wonderful Words. Although I usually admire all of the flower sets, I’m not so in love with the one this month although it is pretty just not for me, sorry. The Fanciful finials is a fabulous addition and those little bags, have I said how much I LOVE ’em, oh my I’m swooning in case you couldn’t tell. I could go on and on…oh I have, but must add…Cork paper, burlap roll, resin flowers AND the adorable Boutique Accessory stamps & dies, I am swooning! Fabulous release can’t wait to see a few more days!
I love all the color combinations you gave us for inspiration. I also love the big words trend.
Tami M. says
I’ve seen the Ikat pattern all over but never knew what it was called. I think it’s growing on me, wasn’t too fond of it when I first saw it but after seeing the PTI version, I’m liking it much more! I’m so excited for Heather’s new series and for the new alphabet, I’m in love!
Heather - housesbuiltofcards says
What a fun day of peeks! LOVE the color combos and hope I have time to play today! That arrow card is lovely! LOVE the color scheme and the subtle stitching!
I love the celebrate card and the color schemes you are using today. I can’t wait for this release and to try out some of the new Ikat stamps.
Marlena M says
These designs and projects are so hip Nichole! I am intrigued by the look of ikat~you taught me the term today~
Loving the one word set! Ikat looks great in the sample inspiration; thanks for the chance to win!
Krista W says
I am really looking forward to the ikat set. I love these types of sets that allow you to create backgrounds.
Maria Benitez says
I’m still on the fence on the ikat stampset. I didn’t like it at all in the beginning, but after seeing all the progects, it has started growing on me. I really like both of Dawn’s and Melissa’s sets. I’m also really looding forward to the Stylish Sentiments set.
The Celebrate card is my favorite. I love the alphabet set. Simple and classy.
julie coit says
I thought ikat? No I dont really like that until I saw the great projects you all did now I want it all!!!!
Penny J. says
Hmm, my thoughts…..
Really LOVE Heather’s new series. I have become a “word die” fanatic! And, I really LOVE the new Headline Alphabet and dies. Cannot wait to get all of this in my hands.
Ikat has me stumped. Absolutely love what YOU have done with the set, just not sure I could pull that off. Maybe after I see the full reveal. Although I am intrigued with you saying “fabric” and wonder what it would look like on linen or muslin cloth. Your 2,3 and last card are my very faves! Guess I am a CAS girl at heart! 🙂
It is always so gracious of you to provide the downloads that you put together! Thank you so much!! And thank you to PTI for the opportunity to win a wonderful gift!
Kate W. says
I fell for ikat the minute I saw it. I’m excited for all of maile’s sets this month. Heather’s series will also land in my cart. I’m so excited about all the new goodies!
I am at a loss for words……. Everything 8 have seen with this release is fantastic……however am I going to make a choice? Very excited about Heather’s new “words” series, and Maile’s Ikat images pair with it amazingly, and the new alphabets…..eeeek – incredible! It has to be said though that the extraordinary samples that highlight these new prdducts really channel my vision on how they can be used!
Oops sorry, rambling!,,,,,,, too much caffeine this morning – lol!
Oh my, my wish just got lots longer!! Especially love the watercolor effect. So easy and totally changes the look!!
The ikat is … “interesting,” and all of the projects show it off creatively. I don’t think I will be geting it because it isn’t my style, but that doesn’t really matter because I have already seen so much from this release that I just “need” to add to my PTI collection. Thanks for inspiring us with creativity, as always.
Your products just keep getting better and better! Thanks for the color inspiration!
Diane Hover says
I think what I like the most, is how easy and fast you can/could put a card together when you need a quick one!!! Can’t wait to see more!!!
Really like the big die cut words!
I am excited that the new alpha stamp set has multiples of the most commonly used letters so we can create words directly on the blocks. Appreciate that!
Sue in Grapevine says
Always love the downloads – thanks! Wonderful Words looks great & your Celebrate card reminds me to break out the soft stone cardstock.
Nancy L. says
Wow!!!! A lot of inspiration!!! I have always loved Maile’s style!
Melissa Sibert says
I really like the new alphabet set and the series from Dawn and Heather. You just can’t beat a $5 stamp set.
Loved the hello dye , the ikat ideas and all your color combos.
My favorite is the set by Heather. Can’t wait to see what words she will be showing for this year.
I have a feeling I’m going to love Dawn’s Boutique Borders series! The first in the series is great, and I’m sure those to come will be equally wonderful!
Oh yeah. I’m lovin all the ikat cards shown so far! I’m also looking forward to more samples of the Watercolor Wonder set.
Margie Visnick says
I love the “hello” diecut-and the ikat is beautiful!
Michele aka Derbylea says

Like some of the other ladies, I am not sure I am sold on the ikat, but seeing what you created with the background is very, very pretty!!
Linda Monroe says
Ikat is cool. Lots of ways to play with this.
I won’t be buying the ikat set, it just isn’t my thing. But, I LOVE Heather’s new Wonderful Words monthly set! It has been showcased so beautifully today!

Heather’s new word series is exciting for me! also the narrow letters in the new alphabet. Thanks for the color inspiration sheet – beautiful color combinations.

Kathy V. says
I’m excited about Heather’s new series. I love these series sets. Also loving Dawn’s series. Also think the color inspiration will be a great help.
Jessica C says
I’ve never heard of iKat before seeing this post, but I love the cards you’ve made — especially the chevron one.
sandye Curry says
I’m in trouble because (as always) I hae loved everything you have presented. I think for sure I will have to have Heather’s new wonderful words series. I think they look fantastic on cards. I have had such fun playing in all of the challenges during this release. Can’t wait for the actual release time!
Each day is getting better and better…can’t wait to see the releases for the rest of the week.
Susi K says
I absolutely ADORE Maile’s new stamp set – it is truly IRRESISTIBLE! Look forward to seeing more projects with all the new products from the DT over the next few days.
Detra Parks says
OOOOOHHHHHH!!!! I just love all of today’s highlights. Love, love, love the irresistible Ikat and as usual, your projects sold it to me!! Also the wonderful word: Hello and that it will go on for a year and the alphabet is soooo cute too. So excited about this release!!
Cheryl I says
I really like the Ikat set and I wasn’t expecting it to stand out to me. Your examples today are beautiful and I will certainly be adding it to my wish list. I love the word set from Heather and am excited about seeing the monthly designs. They will have a definite home in my collection.
Tracy S. says
I love these series of stamps because I do more fabric and wearable art stamping than card stamping. I like being able to create my own patterns and color combos. Thanks PTI and designers!
Love Ikat and the new Hello die, thanks for the fabulous inspiration!
Lynda Marquez says
Love the new series by Melissa and Heather! Such cute polka dots and big words!
Ngan R. says
I love the Ikat designs on clothing and think it is wonderful there will now be a stamp set featuring these fun and fresh designs! I especially love the color combo on the “my dear friend” card you created. Can’t wait for more tomorrow!
i am so glad heather & melissa have new $5 series coming out. i use their other series’ all the time either alone or w/ other stamp sets. thanks.
I love the Headline Alphabet and Number Dies. Not crazy for the Ikat set, but with the samples it is growing on me.
Julie Carlisle says

Sarah T. says
I hope you made lots of Heather’s new Word series as I get the impression that everyone’s going to want them – me included
Terri Bills says
I think the patterns and designs are awesome. I also think the way you used the colors on these cards is fantastic.
Cindy Otto says
I love the Wonderful Words new series!! I have the Blessed set and love, love love it! Can’t wait to see what else Heather will design. The color inspiration is great, too. I would design a card with the “beach” colors, so soft and calming. Thanks for all the inspiration!
I can’t wait for the alphabet die cut set. I love the word die cut series. The Ikat stamp set is not my thing, but I love everything else.
Rosemary D says
i really like this new series from heather nichols… love the big words! the ikat set looks really cool…
Cresta Woodruff says
I havent’ really gotten into the Ikat craze like some have, but after seeing today’s projects, I am really loving the new Ikat stamp set. It looks so versatile and really fun to use! Thanks for the inspiration today! =)
Thanks for the inspiring color schemes! And your new stamps and dies look great–I think the Hello die is my favorite!
I’m loving the Ikat. I really like your card with the ikat chevron arrows…so pretty. I’ve always loved the chevron stripes as well.
Karen R says
Love the large word die and coordinating stamp set! Great idea!
Barbara T. says
an array of choices this release. I would definitely enjoy every last one. The ikat set initially was so so on my wish list but as alays the design team helps you to see the light!
cynthia karkut says
I just love the dies it puts that special touch on all my projects. Thanks so much

Chris H says
I like the new headline alphabet. All of the cards are so beautiful and colorful, just what we need this time of year. Can’t wait to see more!
I am loving different alphabets right now, and especially love getting the dies to match. Can’t wait to get this new one.
Tina B. says
I love Heather’s Wonderful Words series. I am always looking for ways to incorporate stamps in my layouts! Happy Anniversary!
I actually love the IKAT set! Wow! I actually just bought some fabric recently that has that pattern and to now have a stamp set! Oh, the possibilities!
Ruth G says
I love the sketchy, organic feel of the iKat designs. I just don’t know how else to put it.
All of your projects are wonderful! I learn so much about color when I come here! Thanks so much for the color inspirations, if I don’t have a chance to create something for the challenge I know they’ll come in handy for future projects!
I’ve been wishing for a larger set of letter dies, and to have stamps with them just opens up lots more possibilities! I’m also loving the large Hello die, and can think of lots more words that I hope will be in this series. Thanks for the chance to win a gift certificate!
Judy S says
To be honest with you, I was on the fence about Irresistibly Ikat …. not particularly my style. But after seeing your amazing cards this morning using this new set, I definitely see the potential! This stamp set is now on my wish list …. it’s good to step outside of the box, right?
So excited to see all the words Heather will be sharing with us this year. The Ikat set is one that will definitely take me out of my comfort zone and give my cards a more “talented artist” look, which is one of the main reasons I love making cards…because “talented artist” I am not. PTI sets allow me to fool a lot of people.
I’m loving ikat. I didn’t really like it at first, but when I saw your backgrounds and realized they were stamps and not patterned paper I knew I’d have to have it. My poor wallet.
Ann Lind says
Loving the ikat next to florals my favorites are pastels and water color looks and this set offers so choices for both. A must have on my list. TFS
Pat Baker says
I know I am going to LOVE Heather’s new die-cut words set! I don’t use the single letters much, but the words are really FUN on cards. I never thought of putting a monogram on cards! Silly me – since I used to use monogrammed writing paper “back in the day”!
Thanks for the color inspirations, too! Just lovely!
I absolutely love the Ikat stampset – love the fonts and the set is definitely my style! Also love the little boutique dies to make the hair clips – so cute!
Ok, so I didn’t even realize what Ikat was until now lol! And like some others, I’m not really sure what I think since it’s so new to me. But I do have to say I absolutely LOVE the rainbow hello sample!! I’m such a sucker for anything with lots of color! As always, everyone’s wonderful samples do the selling ;-)!
Diana K says
Beautiful projects today! I’m especially loving the new wonderful word series! Just what I needed.
Rose Antonopoulos says
I love Heathers new word set. But I’m most excited about the new alpha!!! It looks great!
Carol b says
The new series by Heather Nicholas looksloke a winner . With those bold cutout words , it will be easy to make a statement card that pops.
Angela Fehr says
I love h0w each project is all about the colour – it really makes the whole card!
I can’t wait to order Heather Nichols new series, I think it is brilliant. I love large focal words and pairing them with smaller sayings. I LOVE it! Problem is, I have no suggestions for future series. Just when I think you have tapped into everything fabulous, you all come up with something even more fabulous! I heart PTI!
Mary-Anne V. says
You make the Ikat patterns so amazingly beautiful on the cards…I never looked at them like that before so its quite inspiring.
Chris L. says
Wonderful cards today! So far, I am really loving Melissa’s Polka Dot Parade–I adore anything with polka dots, and Set #1 is just so cute!
Audrey Tokach says
Oh I just love every one of those color combinations!! So pretty! Love the samples today too… The polka dot ikat/watercolor look card is my favorite!
Nancy G says
I am looking forward to more of Heather and Dawn’s new stamp sets. Sorry the ikat isn’t on my list but there has been some beautiful ideas that I seen using it.
Emily W. says
Not so sure about the ikat set– I don’t think ikat is my thing– but I really did love your watercolor dots and the chevron card underneath it!
Linda S. says
I only have the script alphabet dies, so like the new Alphabet dies. Some many great projects. Like the Hello die also.
I had never heard of ikat designs before today, but they are really lovely and seem to add texture even without embossing them.
cheryl p says
LOVE the new dies! Thanks foe a chance to win!
Christine N. says
Love the color challenge, especially #6 – very rainbow like and #3 – the cool, pastel blues, purples. Go Papertrey!
To be honest, and it is difficult to admit, I’m not really a fan of Ikat. I’m a flower person. So there is more than enough for me this month.
Marybeth L. says
I love the card you made with the dots! Love the new alphabet dies as well. I am still thinking about the Ikat set. I am excited about the barrette dies . Happy 6th Anniversary!
Rachel Izakowicz says
I love Ikat!!!! I didn’t think it would be something I’d be drawn to, but the samples are just stunning! Can’t wait for the 15th!
Although the samples made with the ikat stamps are beautiful (as they always are from the PTI design team), I am not a big fan right now, although sometimes things like this tend to “grow” on me and I will become more comfortable with it. I do love the new Headlines Alphabet though!
Lee Cockrum says
Love the new word die series! Lots of fun!
Stephanie J says
I pretty much won’t be able to live without the sets shown so far. The Wonderful Words series is especially intriguing!

BEAUTIFUL cards. Awesome new sets!

Larissa Heskett =) says
It has been a long time since I have been “I must have this set ASAP. I can’t wait for release night.” I just LOVE Maile’s IKAT set. The samples you created really showcase the set.

Chris Cross says
Love the new stuff!! So cute! Haven’t learned to love ikat yet; but with enough exposure, I am always talked into a new trend.
I am drawn to the alphabet – perfect size – and the big ‘hello’. I LOVE the circles card where you have made the pastel coloured letters!
Sharon J says
Love the fabric look of the ikat set, and I must have the headline set in my alpha collection!
Stacy Simpson says
I MUST have the Ikat set and WW:hello – can’t live without them!

Annette Snyder says
When I first saw the sneak peak of the ikat stamp, I didn’t like it. It has grown on me some. I like the chevron type arrow. I really like Heather’s new series. Thanks so much!
I love ikat! And you guys have come up with some lovely riffs on it! More to put on my wish list! Great release!
Tracey McNeely says

Sandy Vincent says
Love the new alphabet and wonderful words sets.

Kimberly Russell says
I need more PTI stuff so I can add to the challenges. I really like all the different items available!

Marge R. (mer) says
I have to honestly say that IF I could only ever have PTI stamp sets, I’m quite sure that I would need few others to satisfy my card making needs. You truly know what’s new/trendy, but also classy/elegant and every other genre in between. You just always know what we need and what goes with it to meet our needs!
I am a huge Ikat fan and was super excited when I saw the sneak peeks earlier. Seeing the projects today, this is one stamp set I HAVE to have. I can see it getting tons of use. I’m also really excited for the new series from Heather. Can’t wait for the release!
Honestly I had no idea what kist is. Would never have purchased this EXCEPT all your samples have sucked me!
As always, I am crazy about everything! All of the beautiful samples make it so hard to choose!
I’m loving the wonderful words and am so glad it’s going to be a year long series!!
Maureen P says
what a great day! Again! LOVE those letters and matching set AND the sentiments in Maile’s new set! I need 2 shopping carts this month! LOL

Love color combination 3 & 6. Looking forward to Release Date – have my list ready to go!!!
Cindy Reynoso says
Wow! I’m LOVING Polka Dot Parade, My Mother My Friend and Boutique Borders….Can’t wait to order them!
I’m seriously giddy over what I’ve seen today. I love it all… A LOT! I didn’t even realized how much I like Ikat until I saw how everyone used it today. This release is going to kill our budget this month….thank goodness I can’t buy anything until the month is halfway over. 😉
shari walker says
Love, love the hello, and the new ikat stamps, they are awesome..
Cyndy G says
I really like Heather’s Wonderful Words, and looking forward to the rest of the year. Not really keen on the Ikat set. Not my style. But loved your two cards Nichole…Hello, there and My Friend.
Bethany Stellpflug says
I didn’t think I’d like the Ikat set when you first did a sneak peek of it, but now I think I’m going to have to get it! And I LOVE Maile’s paint strokes set…gonna have to get that one sometime too! Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂
Heather Vogan says
I am smitten with ikat right now! I am loving what you ladies are doing!! So excited to see the rest of the release-thanks so much for the opportunity to win!!!!
The Ikat pattern is so diverse. I’ll be able to make some fast and fabulous cards with it for sure!
Regina M. Hamilton says
Your samples have made me really love the Ikat stamps. They are going on my extremely long wishlist.
I’m totally smitten for the new ikat stamp set…it is on my wish list! Seriously LOVIN’ the texture it adds to the paper without any fuss.
Jodi (Jodi&jade) says
I’m so happy for the release of the new letters and dies (of coarse). I love how tall and slender they are. Heathers new series is a must have I’m sure I’ll end up having the complete series they look like they wll work really well with project life which is always a bonus. Love the Ikat set too, I always love keeping fresh and up with the trends.
When I saw the alphabet stamp I was so happy because that is exactly what I have been needing, of course the entire collection is wonderful
Missy k says
The cards today are just gorgeous. As always I love everything you make!
Emily Frasier says
Honestly, i’m not too crazy for the Ikat set, so it won’t make it to my ‘shopping list’. The headlines alphabets and numbers definitely will though.
I hadn’t heard the term Ikat before.
jocelyn e says
Your line of sentiments is what I really like. That and your combo dies and floral stamps are the prettiest I’ve seen around!
Oh yes I am truly loving that Ikat set. I think it is a very different look from all other sets. I can see lots of possibilities in this design!! Once again the design team have done an amazing job!!!
I am totally in love with the barette dies Erin Lincoln has created! I can’t wait to use them for my daughter! 🙂
carol aka krillsister says
Love Heather’s concept of a new word with die per release. the price is even better!
Beautiful projects today as usual.
Jackie Lic says
Never realized there was a special name for these pattersns. I like some I think the rest may grow on me. I do see these a lot in magazines. Love that you adapted them to stamps.
Seeing all the beautiful cards you have all made it is amazing what you have done with the ikat. Such possibilities! Added to my wishlist for sure!
I am sooo addicted to alphabet dies!!!!!!!!!
Love that “hello” die!! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂
Rarely does everything in one sneak appeal to me, but I really love all these products. These are all must-haves for me!
Penny Peters says
Loving the new word dies, can’t wait to see what’s next!
Leslie S. says
I’m totally falling for Ikat! I was unsure at first, but it’s definitely growing on me! And I love Heather’s new series too. I can’t wait to see more throughout the year!
I love these color combo’s. I have to try some.
Shelley G says
I’m very excited about Heather’s new series, those little dies are weakness of mine! I can see the Ikat set being very versatile and love the examples today. My wishlist keeps growing!!!
My favourite new introduction so far has to be the YOF dies! These are amongst my most used stamps and having dies for them is just awesome!
Ashley Gréaux says
I’ve never heard of ikat, but I love all this new product! I love the modern yet retro fee, especially with all those colors! Super cute! Can’t wait to see the rest!
I wasn’t a fan of Ikat when I saw it in the stores but I’ve taken another look now that I see it used in cardmaking and it’s lookin’ good.
Deborah Smith says
love Heather new words set, not very fond of the ikat. The flowers are beautiful. Maybe a tree set?
Your “celebrate” card is my favorite. I love how the pretty colors of each letter pops from the background. Thanks for all your inspirtation!
The ikat set is interesting and some fabulous cards have been created by the team, but it is not something that would work with my style. The $5 series, on the other hand, are a different story. I would consider purchasing – and using – each one.
Kim H says
I am crazy about the new Ikat set. Can’t wait to get it, so much fun!
I adore the ability to make mock fabric….faux fabric! I wasnt loving the idea of ikat but Heather, your samples hooked me.
Cathy Weber says
So where have I been? Under a rock? I have never heard of Ikat before, but love how beautiful it looks, especially the water spotch card you made Nichole. I also really like the new alphabet, so different!
Linda Sodano says
I have never seen IKAT before. I didn’t know what it was. I have to say I now love it! The patterns are amazing!
Connie Fisher says
I, too, love the Ikat designs. I especially like the Chevrons and dots in this set. And, I really like the big Hello die! My wishlist is increasing daily…guess I’d better by a lottery ticket and cross my fingers I win enough to support my PTI habit in the style I would like to become acustomed =)
I just love creating faux fabric!
I love Heather’s new word series – looking forward to collecting them all!
Monika Davis says
Yes, I do like theve very much, but I LOVE the chevron style arrow ikat. Such pretty sample cards. The colors are so pretty and fun.
Pam A says
Love the ikat set. The font is fantastic! Really great cards from the design team.
Terry Lepire says
Typically, I try to stay away from “trendy” with my stamping dollars. However, I LoVe Heather’s new word series…..I can’t wait to collect them all! So happy!
I LOVE your monogrammed card today! Ikat has been on my trendy radar, so this is perfect. Thanks for keeping all the new releases so fresh!
I never thought that the ikat patterns would look so good on paper! Fabulous projects using that set.
About to click around and check out today’s projects… Thanks for the chance to win!
Jenn Bishop says
Thank you for today’s new sets, PTI! I absolutely love the Irrisistibly Ikat set, but will definitely purchase the Wonderful Words: Hello & the entire series! Over all, besides the Wonderful Words, I am the most excited about the Year of Flowers Dies! Oh – I forgot to mention, could you please add Scor-Pal products? Thank you for everything! You are on the right track.
Lauren A. says
Omigosh! Omigosh! Omigosh! I am SUPER excited for this release!!! Ikat?! Amazing! Wonderful Words SERIES?!?!?! Be still my heart! New alphabet font?!?! Words cannot describe how excited I am!!! Everything looks incredible!!! You guys have out done yourselves again!!! 🙂

I’m on the fence about the Ikat…. But soooo excited for Heather’s new series!!!
Laura Beck says
Love the “feather” card – the colors, simplicity, and stitching detail are beautiful!
Elizabeth T. says
Ikat is new to me so I am enjoying researching it on the Web, and seeing the projects made with Maile’s new stamp set. Thank you so much for the color inspiration pdf! I love such pdf’s as they are fabulous resources for when I sit down to craft!
HELLO! love it as well as the headline alphabet… thank you so much for the chance to win.
Donna K says
Beautiful projects. I always love the color inspirations because it helps me get unstuck from my color rut which is pink and green or black and pink.
Dana N says
I’m in love with the new Wonderful Words series!! I will be following for the duration!
That new alphabet is great and the ikat very intriguing. Those finals are the bomb too!
Love the Ikat trend that has taken over! You ladies are so spot on trendy! Love it!
Wonderful new goodie and projects! I’ve been waiting for days to hear more about the Wonderful Words Series. But the Ikat set is what really got my attention! This set can’t help but get the creative juices flowing!
So that’s theNAME of this NEW DESIGN, which is taking over the DESIGNNING PATTERN in WINDOW DRESSING’s, IKAT
almost sound like KIT-KAT, that too has4 pieces, right?
I have found this pattern facinating because of all the LINKING patterns which are associated with the PRINT of 4. If not careful the pattern can catch you in to a mesmerizing stance. I just Love the new colors
schemes, and the WAYS that the designers have used them to entice us all…esp the unique and Bright Names. sometime the names are so enticing, almost sounding even eitable,..& sometimes when I’m just watching your videos, I like to 1st just listen,and try to “SEE” the names of the Colors in my minds’s-eye’s! Sometimes I enjoy just how close I’ve come to what the actual color=’s The ACTUAL COLOR!!! Wish I could afford more,Oh by the way why hasn’t customer service completed my request in completing the Die I purchased, without the holes neede in the die so that the Actual die’s design will be visualized???HELP PLEASE SEND HELP!!! HELP IS NEEDED HERE, I’ve called, written, and STILL-no answers..why???YOU sure took my $$$ out of my account fast enought..right,,now wheres the “actual-correct-PRODUCT”???????
Laura Boyd says
I love everything today. The Ikat stamps look like so much fun. I can’t wait to start collecting Heather’s new series. And of course the alpha dies. Love the shape and size of them.
Denise Bryant says
Love it all! Fabulous samples from all the gals! Off to have a look at their blogs!
Kathy R says
I love the new Headline Alphabet. The creative possibilities are endless. I was so happy to see a Spring Moss pattern pack for this release. This color has been one of my favorites for a very long time!!!
Angela NJ says
There is truly something for everyone during this release! What I’ve enjoyed most, so far, is all of the design inspiration from the designers. I love seeing the products, whether they be old or new, featured in unique ways – whether it be through technique, color combo or embellishment. This inspires me to use the PTI products I have in fresh new ways, and for me, it’s the thing that keeps me shopping with this great company. Happy Anniversary!
Elizabeth S. says
I wasn’t to sure about the Ikat design from the peeks but it is growing on me with all the beautiful samples using it. And of course with the younger generation in my like (grandkids) I am sure they would like getting cards and projects using it.
Cynthia B :) says
I’m still on the fence about the ikat design. I like how it’s been used in projects so far so I’m sure it’ll grow on me! I think what I like best (from what I’ve seen so far) is the Boutique Borders series. I love frames and this first set is designed so beautifully. An added bonus are the classic sentiments and lovely fonts. That’s a complete package in my opinion. 🙂
Cynthia Xavier says
The Ikat patterns are really cool. They remind me of southwestern designs that are kicked up a notch with bright colors. Very artistic.
I’ve never seen IKAT used in the ways you all showed. I probably would have saw the stamp and passed it by, but know i’m going to take a second look.
LOVE the Ikat! I have several Ikat scarves & table runners I bought in Cambodia 13 years ago, and they are some of my favorite treasures. Also loving the new alphabet – you can never have enough!
Becky P. says
Just stunning! I truly have enjoyed each and everyday of your inspiration and release posts. I don’t have time to play this week, but I am excited for what the weekend has in store.
Julie M says
Yes, definitely loving the iKat series and wonderful words.
Janet B. from WV says
I think the Ikat set is just not in my comfort zone, but I do see Dawn’s set jumping in my cart, along with Wonderful Words. I’m sure the DT will “talk” me into more by the time the full release is revealed!
Linda Nicholson says
I’m excited about Cutting Garden! I have no little girls in my life, but am drawn to Erin’s concept. I also want to see more of Maile’s watercolor set in action.
I think I’m most excited about all of the YOF dies being released at once though! Also can’t wait for the reveal of the anniversary set!
I’m a bit iffy about the Ikat set on the preview day. After seeing your beautiful cards, I have change my mind. Love the new alphabet dies too.
Love the new alphabet!!
kirsty vittetoe says
The “hello” die cut called out to me, since I already have a few of those words diecut, I must include this to my collection, and oh ya, I also love the headline alphabet, I have one alphabet diecut set and used them a lot (almost overused, LOL), so I definitely need a new set!!!! Wonderful inspiration as always!!!!
Like the size of the new alphabet and numbers headline. I will just have to add to my list.
I just love the Ikat! Who knew it was so awesome? The Hello is so cool. I am loving all the cards which were showcased today.
Suzanne B. Webb says
I am really looking forward to the new ‘Cutting Garden’ set. I hope I can purchase it right away after the release. Beautiful inspiration again today!
Kathy Mc says
The ikat set was just an ummm, maybe at first but love seeing the creations. Might be convinced to put it on my wishlist. However, the wonderful words series looks to be very versatile so eager to see the rest throughout the year. Headline Alphabet will be a real hit as I’ve gotten lots of use out of my old Go-Go-Gals Sizzix set. Thanks, Nichole, for creating another free download for us. I save them all because they are great inspiration. When do you sleep???
Barb S says
The Ikat set is to die for! It can be used for projects for either men or women, depending on the colors chosen. This one’s gonna get a lot of ink time here !
Laraine R says
I am so excited with Heather’s new series! These will be on my list every month! I really love everything so far! Big wishlist!
Mel H says
Really like the new word series, and the Ikat was something I’ve been looking forward to seeing since it was sneaked!
I would say this entire release is on my wish list..love them all!
Love the ikat! I love how it adds the texture look.
Colleen F says
I am loving Heather’s HELLO stamp set…I think the Ikat has to grow on me…but that is not to say your cards are an not inspiration and leading me to purchasing them.
Sarah Fisher says
Love the new alpha set introduced today! Looking forward to Heather’s year-long series, too!
I am loving them all and most of them will be on my wish list!..I tried to comment earlier but it did not show up, so trying again!
Helen F. says
Love the ikat patterns trends in home decor and fabrics in fashion. I think it will be fun to create it in stamp art. Your sample cards have me thinking this set will be on my wish list 🙂 Also like the new word series of stamp sets with coordinating dies ~ fun idea!
cards by cara says
The Ikat set looks gorgeous as does the new alpha set …. I am such a sucker for alphabets as they are so versatile. Love the new word dies too – thanks for listening to our requests!
I love the new word die and the matching stamp set is awesome. I can’t wait to see a new one each month!
I love the Ikat look and what I have seen of your new set as well as what you’ve done with it!
Love that you gals keep up on the trends and make that available to us, along with the inspiration to create our own trendy projects. I would be willing to try the Ikat after seeing all the lovely projects. I am looking forward to seeing more of Erin’s ideas for her new series. I love gift giving ideas!
Beatrice W says
what a wonderful alphabet
The alphabet and word stamp sets and dies are my favorite. I’m also intrigued by the paint set that looks like watercolor. I love the design possibilities with these new products. Happy Anniversary PTI.
Deb H says
Is is pronounced “eye Kat” , “eee kat”? One can make their own fabric designs with this stamp set. And use the designs on the new canvas bags. Love the Hello, ranunculus, year of flower dies…well I do love it all.
Misa Miya says
Very nice!! ikat stamp set makes paper look like fabric!! I love the first Hello card. Summer sunrise goes great with the stamp.
Nice colorful springy projects! 🙂
Bernadette M. says
I have a couple of Ikat prints in my closet, so I’d say I’m definitely into Ikat. Love the card with the chevron arrows. Also, I am looking forward to the Wonderful Words series.
Tanis S says
Loving the wonderful words dies. Can’t wait to see what else is in store!
The wonderful words series is brilliant and also looking forward to the headlines font/with dies! Thanks!
It first I didn’t really card for the Ikat set, but now that I have seen all the awesome projects from the design team I do beleive that I may have to add it to my wish list. Thanks for this gret to win, I really love Papertrey Ink stamps and dies.
Zena B. says
Your designs are so colorful and vibrant that yes, I am falling in love with Ikat!
I love the versatility of the ikat set. Love the fabric style backgrounds you created with it.
I have not made up my mind yet if I want to get the IKAT sets or not, I already have so many things that I want and I don’t know if I would get as much use out of those sets as some other ones that I really want. But I do love everything you and your design team do you are all so very talented.
i love the ikat! some ikat patterns look a bit look animal fur but this totally looks like ikat and it looks like a ton of fun!
Jan C says
The Headline Alphabet stamps and die are my must haves.
I love the idea of a large word set each month. I can’t wait to see the rest of the year’s sets for this series. Love your color combos on your projects. 🙂
Laura Jane says
I like the boldness of IKAT. It makes for quick CAS cards:)
I love the hello die. Can’t wait to see what words are used the rest of the year.
Helen LeBrett says
I’m SOOOO in love with the Ikat!!! I’ve loved it for years and I’m so excited to be able to use it in my stamping! It’s going to be so fun!!! Congrats on this great one!! 🙂
I love Heather’s new Wonderful Word set.
Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration!
I love PTI!
Kathy McDonald says
Oh, this Ikat set is so fabulous! I LOVE your cards, and especially the “My dear Friend” card (and the celebrate card). Such beautiful cards from EVERYONE today!
I LOVE the large word series as a focal point. I also LOVE the Ikat stamp set. I am itching to get it and try to stamp on some fabric!!! Leave it to PTI to be on with the trend!!
What fun new goodies today! I love the look of the Ikat patterns. I’m most excited about the Wonderful Words series and the new Headline Alpha stamps & dies! Woohoo!
love your rainbow card as well…and the colour challenges? they are fantastic!
The design potential with the Ikat set is so classic. Love the movement of each sneak…the images provide movement yet flow like fabric. Endless possibilities. Maile’s classic designs are so great.
Shauna K says
I’m loving the wonderful words- they’re wonderful 😀
I love the new letters!! I’m in love love love!
Monica L says
I am intrigued by the new word series. I thik that really has postential and could be effective stand-alone (stamp or die) or combined. And I like the finials for the wrought iron. I bought the background set because I loved the intricate scroll work but haven’t really found a way to use them in my card making. With the finials, I can at least use them very literally–as a fence!! Everything is always so nice and a great variety to appeal to almost anyone.
Chris Blanshard says
I must admit that I have never heard of ikat before but I am loving all the cards today and think it will be running into my basket!
Mutzy Mia says
I’m loving the new Headline alphabet set…looked beautiful on the mongoram card! The “jury” is still out on the ikat series…although you have made beautiful cards with it! Excited about the Wonderful Word series … they will by on the wish list!
Jamie Greene says
Very cool cards!! I love the “hello” die:)
Sue Symens says
Oh my!! The sets shown today are must haves. Getting very excitted for the release!
Becs Attwood says
Those are such fun color combos, I wish I had time to play along with the challenge today! Lots of fun new stamps today – I love Maile’s style, the Ikat set is gorgeous. The new alphabet set is great too – love how those die-cut & stamped letters on your “Celebrate” card look just like fancy letter stickers.
The new alphabet die is what I was hoping for to add to my collection.
I didn’t think I would like the ikat stampset, but as usual you always find ways to use it so effectively. It will definitely be on my wishlist, which is getting very big! Great creations… tks for the inspiration, can’t wait for the 15th!
Kristen Foreman says
These sets are absolutely amazing!!! I can’t wait to get them in my hands. 🙂
Marty B says
The Ikat set is amazing…love the cards that you created with this set. Really like the look of the alphabet set and thank you for the color inspiration charts.
Sherry in MI says
At first glance, I thought IKAT….what???? But now,
having seen the samples you made with the set, I think
I am in love! I am especially fond of the chevron card
that you created. So many possibilities with this set.
Thanks for the chance to win!
Patty J says
I am so amazed at the texture the Ikat set appears to have, so unique and trendy too! My color starved self is really loving the explosion of color today too. It’s all so wonderful.
Judith Lenzini says
Love the new letters and numbers! Very versatile! Kudos on another great release day!
Susan in AK says
I like some of the Ikat, but not all of it. Love the alphabet and Heather’s new series. The samples as always are gorgeous!
I love the Wonderful words series already now. I really hope that the word “birthday” will also be part of the series. To have a beautiful big die-cut “birthday” as a focal point is something I am looking for since quite a while….and haven’t found it up to now.
I haven’t really seen too much of the ikat pattern. But your samples are beautiful. I love the color combos, too. Gorgeous projects from everyone!
Anne B says
Lots of new goodies here – love the ikat set and Heather’s word series is going to be super versatile 🙂
Kim S. says
The samples are beautiful. Love Heather’s new word series.
I love that the new Headline Alphabet set has dies to match. This set will work perfectly for making titles on scrapbook pages.
Harriet Skelly says
I never heard of ikat before but it looks really trendy – love the font in that set. I also love the color combinations you used on your cards.
These products looks so modern and fun. I am really looking forward to the Wonderful Words series, and I will never turn away a good set of alphabet dies!
Teresa F. says
Love the color inspiration ideas 🙂 What a wonderful anniversary for PTI–it just gets better and better!
I am so excited for the Wonderful Words series!! I am going to miss the Framed Out series, but I think Wonderful Words will help fill the void! Thank you, Heather!!!
Carrie :) says
I can really see Heather’s new word series being a huge success! What a punch packed in a small price tag! Maile’s Ikat set looks dead-on trend. She is such a clever designer! Thanks for sharing all the inspiring projects. I wish I could knock this bug and get in on all the project posts!
Well isn’t that just so pretty. I really like the flowers by Dawn, they are exquisite. As for the ikat, I don’t mind it at all, especially in these cards.
Sandy Handrich says
It took seeing some of the projects made with the Ikat stamp but now….I’m in love! It’s just so versatile, I’ve got ton’s of ideas.
Sharon D says
The Wonderful Words series has definitely made its way onto my list–so excited to see the new word each month–how will I wait? Also loving your projects today! The color inspiration is great. I love the featured color combos at the end, and I also love the soft rainbow in the My Dear Friend card.

I love the Wonderful Word dies, they are very enticing! The Ikat is interesting. I’ve not noticed it before, but would like to see more.
To be honest, I’ve never heard of ikat before! It looks interesting and am looking forward to seeing the stamp set in action. Love the new Wonderful Words series!
Lisa K says
I’m really excited about the new Wonderful Words series. I love Nicole’s “Hello” card: great colors and love those dots! I’m also loving the white embossing powder on the soft stone. Awesome!
Loving the Wonderful words! I think I will need them all!
I really love the ikat designs. I worked at Paper Source and the ikat gift boxes and bags were a best seller for us…especially for someone looking for something that would appeal to a man. But, depending on color, it’s well fitting for a woman too!
Kate C says
So many great new products…can’t wait to get my hands on them!! Loving the hello…trying to imagine what else this series has to offer! Also the possibilities of the Ikat set are endless!!
Love the new series by Dawn and Heather. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. Can’t wait to order.
I really didn’t think I wanted an alphabet set, but Nicole’s “Celebration” card is making it move towards my cart. I am also interested in the Wonderful Word series
THis birthday party is so much fun!!!! thanks for the invite love all the new designs.
Sara Spencer says
Wow! Love the ikat set. I never even paid attention to this pattern until I saw it on your blog today. Wonderful! And the alpha set is awesome. Cannot wait for the full reveal this month.

Kelli Chicoine says
I really love the little sets like heart-2-heart, so I am glad to see a new one like wonderful words coming out. It looks like it will be a great series!
Linda Carson says
I admire the artwork using the Ikat series and the versatility but to be completely honest it’s not a style I would use.
Rebecca G says
Thanks for the color combos. Love the alphabet set!
Carol S says
I have fallen for Heather’s new word series and can see that I shall enjoy the anticipation of guessing what will come each month. I’m really enjoying all the little competitions for the celebrations.
Oh my goodness. I’m really enjoying the creative work from all the designers. Such a shot in creativity for me. Dawn and Heather’s sets are my favorite.
Lisa Petrella says
I am lovin’ the looks of the Headline Alphabet stamps and dies!! So graphic and fun!! My wish list is growing and growing!!!
Maureen W. says
I’ve already put Heather’s set on my mental wish list – looks great! I’ve never heard of Ikat before now, but it looks pretty interesting.

I guess I am old school and don’t really get ikat. I do love the Headline alphabet & numbers stamps and dies.

I think Heather’s new word series is great! So excited to see the other words in the coming months!
Lisa Harris says
I love ikat, it’s all over Pinterest right now and I’m so excited you’ve brought it over to the crafting world in such stylish way. I love what Maile has created. The slightly ‘blurred’ edges mixed with those bold, beautiful patterns have captured ikat perfectly. The whole team has been brilliant (as usual) this month and I’ve got a wish list a mile long..lol!
Love the Wonderful Words series.
Kimberli Sarsfield says
Oh my I am super excited about the Ikat bkgd as well as the Wonderful Words: Hello! Both are such a neat concept and full of possibilities!

Jess K says
Wow!! I really am starting to like the ikat set. The DT projects today are showing great examples with it. Love the color combos too.
Love the Wonderful Words: Hello, and can’t wait to see what then next Wonderful Word will bring!
Lots of great products, as usual. Heather’s new word series is at the top of my list right now, with the new alphabet stamp and dies close behind.
When I first saw the sneak peek of the ikat, I have to admit, I thought this was one set my wallet would escape having to purchase…until I saw all the beautiful samples! You guys are amazing!!!!
Kim Badelt says
Irrestistably ikat is a bit too far out there for me, but I have to admit it does pack a unique wow factor. The real party stealer for me is Heather’s word die series. So versatile for cards and scrapping – I’ll be looking forward to each months installment!
Shelley J says
I wasnt to impressed when I saw the sneek peek but reall love all the cards that were made with the Ikat stamp set.
Lovely color combinations were used for the cards. I particularly liked the chevron arrow card.
Suzanne Mooney says
I love Heather’s new Series. I’m just getting back into scrapbooking and this series is just going to be perfect. Love everything so far and can’t wait to see the full release.
Maria F says
I can’t wait to see the newest monthly series since I loved last year’s sets!!!!
Jodi E says
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the color challenge.
I be buying the word of the month as they are just fantastic. Glad that PTI started out with the word Hello as everyday cards with hello just rock.
Also Spring Moss is one of my favorite colors and I am happy to see it come in pattern paper.
I am really loving Ikat..(I have seen it before, but didn’t know what it was called! I love all the cards made using that great pattern..TFS !
Jeannie L says
I’m actually on the fence about the Irresistibly Ikat set but the design team has done an awesome job showcasing it. The Ikat looks a little like batik to me. I’ll look at the reveal before actually deciding. I am however loving Cutting Garden and Heather Nichols and Melissa’s new series.
I love love love the Hello die cut = so many possibilities with background stamps and colors! It’s a winner and on my wish list!
I love Erin Lincoln’s new barrette die–it is a must have for my little great-granddaughters. I am also intrigued with the Ikat stamp set.
Janet S says
I am glad to see Heather’s set as I love BIG words and her series looks like it will be wonderful especially with the dies also. Thank you Heather. Also loved Melissa Bickford’s post today. I have to really make some hard decisions this month. Oh dear, decisions, decisions!
Today’s release is fabulous! Love the Irresistable Ikat stamp set…..this one will be fun to use! Also, think the new Wonderful Words die series will be a “must have” this month and in the coming months! The projects were great too!!
Jean R-T says
More great products! I especially like the Headline Alphabet.
Susan O says
Yesterday the ikat set jumped to the top of my wish list after seeing Maile’s sample. I even looked up its pronunciation! Actually, I really liked all of today’s projects.
Debbie F. says
I’m undecided about the ikat idea. Southwestern influences are my least favorite, and this reminds me of that. Give me floral any day!
Mary M. says
I’m surprised by how much I like the ikat set. Very trendy!
Natalie Winterstein says
I love the card featuring Ikat! I wasn’t sure at first if it was for me but seeing the samples – they’re amazing! 🙂
Liz R says
I’m really loving the new series from Heather Nichols, Wonderful Words. I can’t wait to see what the next addition will be. WW:”Hello” will be going into my cart!
Pat Whitley says
It might be easier to say what I DON’T like! But the new set from Dawn will probably be going into my cart, and I love the series from Heather! Yep, the wallet is gonna take a BIG hit!
I really love the new alpha and dies!!
Stephanie W says
I love Heather’s new series! I can’t wait to see all of the words available over this coming year – I think the “Hello” will be perfect for a page in my son’s baby book 🙂 I also love the new alphabet dies. Thanks for the chance to win!
Margaret R says
I love the new Ikat stamp and the font is stunning. I hadn’t noticed how trendy it is until your posts………now I see it in the decorator stores – beautiful chairs and footstools, furnishing fabrics, floor rugs and even throw rugs. Looks like a must- have!
Vanessa Shearer says
I saw the Headline Alphabet and thought, I don’t need any more alphas than the one I already have…..but I saw Nichole’s “Celebrate!” card, and suddenly I’m finding out I DO need this stamp and die set! So many possibilities, and what convinced me was the multiples of a single letter…very helpful when you’re doing several cards with the same words on them! Ack – here’s to another huge order coming up on PTI’s website…can’t wait! 😀
Lynne in NI says
Gorgeous new goodies, I especially love your Alpha set 🙂
Another set series that is a true MUST have! I really appreciate the style yet simplicity of wonderful words, and all things Heather Nichols! Thanks so much
Linda E (uncbballfan) says
Really looking forward to the Wonderful Words series. I love the dies I already have and can’t wait to add to them!

Colleen K says
The Ikat is amazing! I love your monogramed card so much. So many things are going on my wish list. I will have a full basket this month for sure! The new alphabet and the new series from Heather looks like a must have also.
Love the new Alphabet set – great size – and looking forward to the Wonderful Words series!
i hate to be so untrendy but the ikat just isn’t my style. I am eyeing plenty of other things from this release though!
Kim Heggins says
Another wonderful day of fabulous goodies. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow has in store.
I an loving iKat! I keep looking at similar jeans and just need to take the plunge! I’m also thrilled with the YOF dies!
Angela person says
I must say I’m really excited to see more of the ikat designs. What I have seen so far are truly unique and look like they would be a lot of fun to sta with.
Samnang Schultz says
I am really looking forward to the release of Maile’s Ikat set. Growing up Cambodian, a large number of the sarongs I wore had Ikat style designs.
I am already thinking up stationery gift designs for friends who also love Ikat~
I am loving all the new products. I love all that you are coming out with so many $5 series sets with dies. At that price we can order everything.
Love the colours today and the colour challenge
Tracie C. says
I think the IKAT is simply fabulous. Another win for PTI.
Jennifer Delaurier says
I just love love love that new alphabet set, I have been wanting one like it for a while, glad that it’s now made it to my wish list!
I hadn’t heard of Ikat and it didn’t strike me in the preview, but all your and the DT cards are so super, it has to go on my list. Am anxiously waiting for Watercolor Wonder. Love the color trends, especially #4. Thanks for all the great projects!!
Janet Mack says
I love the Wonderful Words set. Glad it’s a series and I can’t wait for the next word.
S Fink says
Just when I think I have enough flower stamps you come out with something I don’t think I can resist! I love how you “roll” the edge of the flowers in another color ink. Beautiful!
The Ikat samples are so inspiring! I haven’t really been drawn to this trend, but it has me taking a second look. I’m looking forward to Heather’s new series, as well.
Love the new sets by Melissa Bickford. I always love the way she uses the bright color combinations. Also like the new words by Heather. I can’t wait to see what else is to come!
Super Anniversary release! Ya’ll have really outdone yourselves!! I am drooling over all of the goodies. Can’t wait for release night!
Kelly in Canada says
When I was younger (much younger), the ikat craze hit and it was everywhere! To be honest, I got quite sick of it as it seemed that everything my mother bought me (or bought for herself) had this pattern. So, when I see it, my initial reaction is that I’m not crazy about it but I must say that I do love the cards that were posted today by the design team. Really looking forward to Heather’s Wonderful Words series this year!
I love the smaller $5 sets with matching dies! So versatile!
Nita K. says
Love the new alphabet and the word dies. So excited to see more.
Kate C. says
Love the new Ikat set! Especially how you can make a paper look like a fabric- fantastic! Can’t wait to get one 🙂
Robyn McMurry says
I really love the Ikat set.
The ikat designs just don’t do it for me, but I am excited about the wonderful words series and the polka dot parade series! Your $5 sets are such a good bargain!
Dana Klinkner says
I love the new word series from Heather! Larger focal words are so fun & can be used in so many different ways. Thanks for all the lovely inspiration today – you guys are amazing!
Carolyn G. says
LOVE Heather’s new series, and the alphabet is wonderful!! You can never have too many alphabet/number dies! The Ikat set is not my style, but everybody has their own. So far, my wish list is growing. You all are amazing!
Val Hilchey says
Love the new letters! And the words from Heather! So, so much talent here!
Tammie Koehnen says
I am loving the wonderful words Hello the best today. Wonderful projects as always!
I love the new series from Dawn – love florals and from Heather – I’m a word person! Can’t wait for this release!
IKAT MUST ME MINE!!
Lynn Put says
I’m excited about Heather’s new Wonderful Words series with the word dies and Dawn’s new romantic floral set, so pretty! My wish list is growing!

I love everything shown and the color schemes are very inspiring!

I love all the set so far — the cute polka dot bunny will make great Easter cards — the Ikat may be a challenge for me, but fun to play with. Keep the ideas coming!
Pat Q says
I love the new stamps and dies by Melissa Bickford–I can see lots of uses for her stamps. The new Ikat is interesting–could be very fun to use with lots of different colors.
I am so excited excited about the new monthly wonderful word dies.
Karen Ramsey says
Your favorite card is mine also. I just love water coloring..it softens a bold image. Heather’s Wonderful Words is awesome. I enjoy using large focal words to make a statement. And the new alphabet dies are great…a new look.. Great Job everyone!!

I think i am falling for the Irresistible Ikat trend. I love all the mad backgrounds that can be designed and really like all the color schemes that have been introduced today. Thanks for the fun!
Chrystal Woodcock says
The ikat set is interesting. I like the way it looks smeared or stitched. I think I would want to try million color combinations.
Pat Kinkaid says
I think Ikat might have to grow on me, but the cards made by the DT are awesome! All in all, it looks like another fabulous release.
Jo R. says
I love the super-sized word die by Heather and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. I’m a bit “on the fence” about the Ikat set. The samples are lovely but I just don’t think it’s “me”. Love, love, love your Celebrate card. So soft and pretty, and you can’t go wrong with rainbow!
Emily Keaton says
I can’t get enough of that great set of alphabet dies!
Michele Butterworth says
I want the wonderful words die cut of hello! I love it and would love to see additional words to that collection! Hint, Hint….
So many great sets – I’m loving the wonderful words, hello set and all of it’s possibilities. Also liking the Headline Alphabet (would like to see some even larger alphabet dies too!) and the Bunny set from Melissa Bickford. That bunny die is super cute! Thanks for all the wonderful anniversary extras. Love the color schemes….yummy!
Living overseas I don’t see a lot of the same trends as you all but it’s so fun to discover them through stamping! Irresistible Ikat looks like so much fun.
Cynthia B. says
I have several toss pillows that I recently bought – they all have an ikat pattern on them – they’re my favorite! Thanks for the color inspiration!
How I wish money were no object! I’m loving the ikat
I really love the rainbow colors.
Vera W. Yates says
I love the Ikat set. Reminds me so much of my Indonesian culture. The one set that I wasn’t going to get at first was the alphabet set. Until I saw your card sample. I love the line in t he alphabet. It makes it so trendy and now I must have it! 🙂
I am absolutely loving the Wonderful Words Hello! That “Hello” is just amazing in both the stamped form and the die!! I can’t wait to get it.
Malyssa M. says
I always love a new alphabet set and matching dies to go with it! Must be from growing up with such a unique spelling of my name and constantly searching the racks of personalized items looking for the one with my spelling! Now I can create anything and everything with my own name on it!
Connie Gregoire says
I love the new alphabet font – very modern looking – looks great on your project. Love the wonderful words collection. I am a sucker for die cut words – I have all the ones you have so far and this will be on my list every month I am sure.
Melissa Ladd says
Wow, I’m blown away with today’s cards, Nichole!! Love the ikat stamps and the new word die is fab!
Barbara Hale says
So far the Ikat look has not captured my heart. I do love the wonderful words and companion die idea. There are a lot of people I need to tell ‘Hello’
Lori B says
I am looking forward to the Wonderful Words series. I love the look of die cut words, so this is something made for me! The new die cut alphabet looks great too! Everyone shared so much inspiration today–such lovely eye candy!!
Susan T says
LOve ikat and the new alphabet….cannot wait to play with these AWESOME!!!
I love those letters. can’t wait to see what else is coming our way.
My top wishlist favorites are the Year of the Flowers dies, the Cutting Garden, and Heather Nichols work. I wish that the winners would come from the people making the cards instead of comments….I have really been participating and there are so many comments, my odds of winning are dwindling…but, on the other hand, I am learning a lot. Thanks!
Barbara Martin says
Wow, I am loving everything! Irresistibly Ikat is brilliant and will be so much fun to play with! I am excited about the Wonderful Words series too – “Hello” will definitely be in my cart!
Anne G says
Love everything about the Hello There card – the bright colors, the contrast with the black and white, the watercolor look!
Marilyn in Michigan says
Wonderful Words and Polka Dot Parade will be coming to my house…definitely. Ikat is growing on me, too.
Betty Sue says
I love the Ikat stamps but I also love the new alphabet and Dawn’s new stamps as well. Too much to see and want this month, but oh so fun!
Love the new series!
So exciting for this release, there are so many great products! Can’t wait for the new Wonderful words series, love the idea of being able to die cut whole words instead of having to piece together individual letters! I am not too sure how I feel about the Ikat set yet, but I am waiting to see the release of the full set before I make my final decision! Thank you!
Ikat! Love it!
Gorgeous sets. Love love ikat and watercolor sets. Love Maile and Cristina’s projects.
Ooh, love the word dies…and am really looking forward to seeing the full reveal of Maile’s sets! Also love the beautiful DT creations!
The alphabet goes on my wishlist! Ikat – not my thing. Happy Anniversary!
Cheryl B. says
Love the new Heather Nichols wonderful words series. I like the patterned “hello”. And an accompanying die is terrific. I’m also intrigued by the new alphabet!
Tammy Rosenbalm says
Kinda liking the ikat after seeing the amazing card samples, I’m always looking for ways to add dimension without the bulk.
I love everything today!! I just have one request. When is the Sweet blush ink pad going to be available?

I think Ikat is great because is very hippie chic, artsy and versatile, and I am loving the flowers too!!!
Kathy Schweinfurth says
I’m so excited about the large word dies and the ikat stamp set…beautiful and perfect for making some quick cards! Just when I think I can “go without” items from a release, I find there are MORE things I just CAN’T “go without”!
I love the new series by Heather Nichols. Excited for te new alphabet die and stamps too 🙂
Kim Cesafsky says
Another awesome release. I’m finding it hard to choose what to buy first.
I have 4 more days to decide 🙂
Jennifer T. says
I haven’t caught the Ikat craze yet but am really loving the new Wonderful Words set so far!
I do like the ikat set. All of the samples are so inspiring! And I like a few other things as well – seems there is always more to like!
Stephanie T. says
I love the new Ikat designs! I remember seeing these as fabric prints in the fashion magazines and thinking to myself, “I would never wear a print like this” but the Ikat designs are visually stunning design elements for cards and other projects. Thanks for designing another awesome stamp set!
Love the ikat stampset. This is so different than anything I’ve seen before. Can’t wait to see the rest of the set!

I had never heard of ikat but I am LOVING the blue & green card – it is stunning!! Thanks for the constant inspiration!!
Amy G. says
I’m very excited about two new series: Heather’s Wonderful Words series and Dawn’s Boutique Borders. I don’t know which one I’m looking forward to more, but I do know that both will regularly be landing in my cart and on my porch.
I really like the new alphabet set. The white line/space down the center of each letter is a nice design element.
The alphabet die is certainly going into my cart. I am also loving the ikat prints. So lovely!
jan m says
I really enjoyed your celebration card!
Sue S. says
I love the ikat patterns! The projects today really look great using them! Love all the new products released today 🙂
laura j says
to be honest I’m not a big fan of ikat….but perhaps that’s more reason for me to win the set so that I can play with it and “grow” to love it!!!lol
