heart squared, wonderful words: love & the scattered hearts banner dies

introducing the best is yet to be & sentiments, heart squared, and wonderful words: love

Welcome to day 1 of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown! This month is about spreading around a whole lot of love - and who doesn't like that? I have 4 new stamp sets that are making their debut this month that I am excited to share during the countdown.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on December 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.



First up is The Best is Yet to Be and The Best is Yet to Be Sentiments. The main set features elegant sentiments with some leaf and floral patterns that you can combine in a beautiful variety of looks. The companion sentiment set includes additional coordinating sentiments that you will want to add to your collection. Coordinating dies will also be available. The Best is Yet to Be retails for $24 and The Best is Yet to Be Sentiments retails for $5.



Next up is Heart Squared that features a simple heart frame and coordinating sentiments. I have already been dreaming up lots of ideas of things to fill the frame with! There is a coordinating frame die as well. Heart Squared retails for $5.


And finally, the 11th in the Wonderful Words series. This month's word is "love". Wonderful Words: Love is a set that includes a large word love) with companion words and sentiments. This month's word is in a classic font, but the "o" is replaced with a whimsical heart and the stamp image has a subtle dotted stripe overlay. The set has a coordinating die for the large word as well. You can use the die alone, stamp the word alone, or use the 2 together. Wonderful Words: Love retails for $5.



The card I have to share with you today uses Wonderful Words: Love, Heart Squared, and The Best is Yet to Be Sentiments. I stamped the Heart Squared frame in Fine Linen ink, added the "love" in Hibiscus Burst, and then the sentiment in True Black.


I on stitched a few hearts with some silver thread and added a small scalloped border that I created with the Heart border die.

There is more to see on this first day of the countdown: Nichole will have lots of new things to share over at her blog, Melissa will be sharing the new Solid Stitches & Swirls set, Cristina will be sharing the new It's a Banner Day set, and Ashley will be sharig the new Polka Dot Parade #11 set. The stamp designers have been busy this month so stop by their blogs too: DawnMelissa, Lexi, Erin, and Lizzie.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I will be back tomorrow with more to share.
