Celebrating the Past, Present and Future: 2016


Today we are diving into the year 2016!


Series 6 is the final series of the romantic-drama show, Downton Abbey. It premiered in the UK on ITV Sunday September 20, 2015, and premiered in the US on PBS January 3, 2016.


The United States presidential election kept us all on the edge of our seats for months.


The Summer Olympics in Rio brought a much-needed diversion from the election madness, despite dealing with its own share of scandals. Team USA medaled 121 times, while 19 world records and 65 Olympic records were broken during the two-and-a-half-week event.



Tulip Time – Nothing says spring like seeing the first tulips peek through the ground, bringing with them hope for the coming spring when life is new and fresh! Enjoy this flower favorite in your stamping projects with the Tulip Time Stamp Set. The multi-step images will add pretty shading and bountiful color to your stamped images. Use them to create stunning focal points or backgrounds. Try your hand at layering them over a watercolor background for a pretty, artistic touch. A couple of butterflies and a handful of sentiments in the prettiest of script fonts finish off the set.

Betsy says, "Working as a floral designer for 12 years, I became pretty familiar with many different flowers, which comes in pretty handy when illustrating them for stamp designs. The Tulip Time set is one that I'm probably most proud of in terms of illustration, plus it's fun to stamp!  I think it's safe to say that it became a favorite for many of you as well.  With spring approaching I was excited to pull it out again for today's project!"

Scherenschnitte, which means “scissor cuts” in German, is the art of intricate paper cutting. Now you can easily capture a similar look in your own paper crafting with the Paper Clippings series of stamps and dies. The Paper Clippings: Love Story stamp set includes an oversized sentiment and a gorgeous multi-step book image that will take center stage on special cards and projects for weddings, anniversaries, and more! Pair the stamps with the coordinating die, which is sized to fill a standard card front, or use them on their own to create stunning stamped focal points on your cards and projects. The beautiful book image would also pair perfectly with many of the other “book” themed items already in the Papertrey line of products!

Melissa says, "When it comes to my weaknesses, wreaths are right up there at the top.  I love decorating with them and really enjoy stamping with them, or creating them from stamped images.  Therefore, the darling, twiggy wreath from the To Have & To Hold stamp set is a favorite image of mine.  I love the tiny, delicate flowers that accompany it, making it perfect for so many different occasions."

Lexi says, " My favorite Pieces of Confetti set from 2016 would have to be Invitation Basics. The different elements in the set are perfect for creating clean and simple invitations and birthday cards. Who knew a couple of little rectangles could be so versatile and fun?! It hasn’t been around that long yet, but I have already reached for it several times. Today, I have cake – head on over for a slice!"

    Tulip Time is my favorite stamp set from 2016, though I don’t use it nearly enough. I haven’t gotten the color combinations right. I also really love the Be set and the Bold and Beautiful Sentiments set. I’d still really like a second round of that font.

    Vicki Finger says:

    It’s no contest for me. Tulip Time is hands down my absolute favorite Papertrey Ink Stamp Set. I’m hoping this spring brings another gorgeous bloom in this style from Betsy or any illustrator.

    Kathy W says:

    Shine On is the set I bought in 2016. As we have visited the years, I noticed that I was more drawn to the first 5 years of PTI designs. This look back gives me good reason to go back and create with all those stamp sets!

  • 10
    Karen says:

    I love Painted Petals and Tulip Time! But the stamps I’ve reached for over and over when I need a quick, CAS, yet elegant card, are the Splits, especially Best Wishes. It works for so many occasions, and in any color scheme.

  • 11
    Leigh Penner says:

    My favourite set from 2016 is Tropics. The leaves are lovely, but I especially love the sentiments!

    My favorite set of 2016 is the Painted Petals stamp set. The ability to layer the colors makes it easy to look more artistic than I am.

    I love Tulip Time – definitely one of my faves! Others are the Dress Up Doll series, What the Doodle series, Forget Me Not, Don’t Forget to Write, and Spring Woods. Lots of great stuff in 2016!

    I don’t think I could possibly say what my favorite is. There are so many. Flower sets for sure! Can you have too many? Just Desserts for all those birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions and then there is King of the Grill for all the guys.

    S. Molinari says:

    I don’t even have to look back at the rest of the year. Tulip Time is definitely my favorite, but the swans aren’t swimming far behind 😉 It was a good year…for stamps.

  • 17
    Joyce says:

    Painted Petals is definitely a favorite! The bold blooms just seem to make a beautiful card every time!

    Tulip Time and Peonies on Parade are two of my favorite stamps released in 2016. I was so excited the day I got them and am still so excited every time I use them.

    iluvpaper2 says:

    I only have one set from the 2016 review today. My favorite sets from 2016 are Bold Blossoms and Peonies on Parade. My all time favorite die, which if I could I would use on every card, is the Cover Plate: Pretty Frame Die! Ove it!!!

  • 21
    Diana K says:

    For 2016, Tulip Time is my favourite everyday stamp and Winter Village for Christmas. Both of them are so different from other stamps in my collection and I absolutely love them!

  • 22

    Tulip Time is my favourite from 2016. Such a beautiful stamp set and such fun to work with. Cheers.

  • 23
    Adele Holcomb says:

    I saved my points until I had enough to purchase the beautiful Painted Petals set. Love the bold blooms and the layering bits. Looking through the list of releases, I also have many of the Splits, with more on my wish list. The Woodblock Prints set makes some beautiful designs, and I have many other stamps, either purchased or on my wish list.

    Thank you for this look back. It’s been great to take a look at past projects and be inspired all over again. PTI is my favorite stamp company. Not only do you come up with unique and varied designs (something for everyone) every month, beautifully demonstrated by a talented team, but the products are reasonably priced. Keep up the good work!!

    Tulip Time is my favorite 2016 set because I like tulips and this multi-step stamp set creates beautiful flowers.

  • 27
    Donna Gourley says:

    Today’s choice was easy for me…it’s Painted Petals! PTI’s anniversary sets continue to amaze and delight me! They seem to have that “extra something” that you’d expect from a special release set and remain some of my very favorites among my collection. Can’t wait to see (and receive) the anniversary set for 2017!!

  • 28
    Jeni says:

    My favorite set from 2016 has to be either Painted Petals or Spring Woods.

    I love the watercolor look of Painted Petals & Spring Woods helps me fill that need for sets that can be used for masculine cards.

  • 29
    Natalie Winterstein says:

    Again, I have and love so many of these sets, it’s hard to choose! 🙂 I really love Tulip Time, it’s just gorgeous! I need to pull that out for some Easter cards again this year! 🙂

    Linda Lander says:

    Tulips, tulips, tulips… I continue to use this one..over and over. Love all the new possibilities having seen this blast from the past…

    Of course there are always the stamps I wish I had purchased…after seeing your ideas…

    Again, thank you for the trip back…as well as one that goes forward..

  • 31
    Karen says:

    Ok, it’s a tie with this year’s favorite stamp set – Tulip Time makes the most effortless, but beautiful flower ever. It is just gorgeous. That’s what I used for my project today and no matter what color combinations you use, it always looks beautiful. But I also adore the Painted Petals set. It is whimsical and fun.

  • 32
    Peggy S says:

  • 38
    Noelle says:

    The Post & Parcel kit is one of my 2016 favorites! I had so much fun crafting with it last Christmas. Stylized Autumn is another favorite.

    Of course, there are SO MANY WONDERFUL sets that came out in 2016, but my heart has been with the Inspirational Series that Betsy Veldman designed! FINALLY, a series (Word dies & stamps) out there on the market for Christians! I’ve been working on getting them all, but of course, EVERYONE ELSE loves them too, cause they ALWAYS seem to be out of stock! LOL 😉

  • 85
    Terry says:

    I thought King Of The Grill was a fantastic idea and definitely filled a need for me! I also enjoyed Kay’s set Styalized Autumn…little fox I s so cute. And i also enjoyed the sweet cookie stamps for Christmas this year! Great anniversary fun PTI!

  • 86
    Deb Hudson says:

    I’ve been using Bold Blossoms and Floral Sketches with colored pencils and watercolors. But can’t leave out Spring Woods and Stylized Autumn. I do like the birds and animal stamps too. I thoroughly enjoyed going through your ten years of stamps.I’ve gotten inspired once again by many of my “older” stamps. Congratulations to all on 10 wonderful years.

  • 87
    Cindy Otto says:

    Love the ” Inspried Series” and “What the Doodle Series” but my favorite sets for 2016 have to be “Cozy Christmas” and “Sweet Holiday Wishes”. I love anything vintage and Dawn’s thermos set was just darling. The cookies in Sweet Holiday look good enough to eat! Thank you for so many wonderful sets.

  • 89
    Donna K says:

    The Painted Petals Anniversary set was the best. The 2 and 3 step flowers are so versatile. My favorite stamp set during the year were the Some Like it Hot and Tropics sets. They paired so well together. I fell in love with SLIH the minute it came out but it took several tries to get it – it kept selling out so obviously it was a hit with many PTI fans.

    Some favorite flowers: Tulip Time, Floral Sketches, Painted Petal, Bloomin’ Cute, Bold Blossoms, Be (love the little flower, so sweet). What The Doodle series because, well, they are just fun. Split series makes for quick, CAS cards, especially of men. Inspired series are so uplifting and inspirational. Simply Spring Borders cute Easter set. Paper Clipping series unlike anything else I own. Holiday Greens because I love anything with greenery. This does not even touch the fabulous sentiment sets that were released in 2016.
    Thank you for all the work you have put in to these posts each day! It truly has been inspiring to look back over all the years PTI has been in business.

    What a wonderful trip through the first ten years of PTI. Uncomparable inspiration, month after month. 2016 was the year of reorganizing how I store my stamps, necessitated by the number of PTI stamps I now own, by my count, 868 of the 1280 PTI sets. 2017 will be the year I get inky with more of them. Sadly I only own one of the sets featured today – Painted Petals, which I love! The other sets from 2016 which are high on my MUST HAVE list are Tulip Time, Peonies on Parade and Just Desserts.

    This really has been such a wonderful showcase. The entire PTI family has so much to be proud of. Here’s to the next ten years!

    You can never have enough birthday stamp sets, so my pick for 2016 is “Just Desserts”. I loved the yummy cakes it creates and the font for the sentiments was just lovely.

    I only have 2 of the 5 sets shown today, Just Desserts and Painted Petals. Unfortunately, neither has been used…yet. I do have great plans for them, someday. It would just be too hard to narrow down to a favorite from the whole year! Thanks for all the inspiration for these sets. I’ve really loved the past 10 days.

    Ack! So many great sets to choose from! I am going to go with Tulip Time. I made spring cards with it last year with yellow tulips and turquoise card stock trimmed with white scallops. Fresh, just like spring.

    My favorite from 2016 (if it is really possible to choose just one)is definitely Tulip Time. But for the sheer fun of stamping, I would choose To Have & to Hold – what a lovely stamp set that is!

    Holiday Greens and the various “Splits” sets saw a lot of action in my card-making. The “Holiday Greens” was fun to use creating my own designs for Christmas cards. The “Splits” made for easy, elegant CAS cards.
