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. 

The Details:

  • 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.

The Details:

  • 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.

The Details:

  • 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.
  • Two coordinating die collections will be available for sale separately. Headline Alphabet retailing for $16 includes a set of 30 characters.  Headline Numbers retailing for $10 includes a set of 15 characters.  Each character averages around 1" tall and 3/8" wide.

Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Hello From the Heart Card
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.

Hello There Card
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.

Hello side
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.

My Dear Friend Card
This next project is clean & simple, just the way I like it!   

Stitched arrow
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.

Hey There Thanks Card
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.

Notch detail
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.

Monogram Card
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.

Celebrate Card
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!

    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).

    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.

    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!

    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!

  • 72
    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.

  • 73
    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!!

    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!

  • 77

    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.

  • 81
    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!

    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! 🙂

    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’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!

    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.

  • 129
    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!

  • 130
    Kate W. says:

    Janet says:

    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!

  • 133
    kristinkat2 says:

    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.

  • 187
    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?

  • 188
    Linda says:

    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.

  • 189
    Carissa says:

    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.

  • 191
    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!

    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 ;-)!

    Lyn says:

    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!

  • 255

    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!

  • 256
    Erin says:

    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!

    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.

  • 275

    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.

    Beautiful projects today as usual.

  • 281

    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.

  • 293
    Deborah Smith says:

    love Heather new words set, not very fond of the ikat. The flowers are beautiful. Maybe a tree set?

  • 294
    Vicki says:

    Your “celebrate” card is my favorite. I love how the pretty colors of each letter pops from the background. Thanks for all your inspirtation!

  • 295
    Nancy says:

    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.

  • 296
    Kim H says:

    I am crazy about the new Ikat set. Can’t wait to get it, so much fun!

  • 298

    Lou says:

    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”???????

  • 322
    Laura Boyd 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!!!

  • 325
    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!

  • 326
    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.

  • 327
    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. 🙂

  • 328
    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.

  • 329

    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!

  • 334

    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!

    Sonja says:

    Love the new alphabet!!

  • 337

    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!!!!

  • 338

  • 341
    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???

  • 342

  • 366
    Jessica says:

    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 new letters!! I’m in love love love!

  • 381
    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.

  • 382

    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!

  • 383
    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!

  • 388

  • 395
    Annette says:

    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 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!

  • 405

    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!

    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!

  • 447
    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!

  • 453

    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 !

  • 454
    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.

  • 455

  • 461

    I’m undecided about the ikat idea. Southwestern influences are my least favorite, and this reminds me of that. Give me floral any day!

    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!

  • 469

    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! 😀

    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 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!
