This is one of those cards that the camera doesn't do justice. It is sparkly and textured and so much of the detail is lost when the camera lens shuts. WHY? WHY? I promised I would see how Tombows worked with other papers, so for this card I used the SU watercolor sheets. They worked just fine! I did not use a brush this time though, I used the Tombow blender which worked REALLY well! I will keep experimenting and fill you in on my *findings*. You might notice there is a sentiment on this card that is a bit *unusual*. With the help of my talented DT members, who have chosen to remain anonymous, we have developed a set of Twisted Sentiments. Certainly not profane, but off color adult humor and sometimes risque to say the least. How do you feel about that? I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions here. I am taking a poll to see when, if and how this set will ever be released. I think there's lots of room for things more adult and humorous, even in a twisted and slightly wrong way, but like my friend Carole says, I am not to be trusted in matters of good judgment or taste! IF it is released on the site, it will be in a special area, in its own category. If it isn't released under the company...well....there's always ebay! Now, how about a little fun? Enter a comment to WIN your own set of unreleased Twisted Sentiments! I will pick a winner on Feb 5th! Please make sure you number your post AND leave an email addy! Happy playing!

I love the card! Your cards are always nice, so if you say that the camera doesn't do it justice then you must be right. I can't wait to see what other 'twisted' sentiments are heading our way, it sounds like a great idea! (5)

WOW!! I have been looking for months for more adult oriented stamps as I have had several requests for this type of cards from a store that sells my cards. I can`t wait for the release..please let me win I am always so jealous of those who get them early and get to play sooner.

I think this set would be a big hit! I think there are plenty of us out there that are twisted enough that it will sell like hot cakes! RELEASE!!!!!

Pegg S said...

#11 - I definitely would love some twisted sentiments. A lot of the sentiments are cute for family and children - we need some good ones to send to our girl friends!! The card is gorgeous - I have never seen a Tombow blender pen -is that similar to the SU one? I love my Tombows!

amyd said...

I have been waiting for a set like twisted sentiments to be made. The thought of being able to have a set that you can use for friends and family who have a sense of humor like mine is priceless! I know that it would be one of my most used "sentiments" sets if it is made. I am newer to MFT but so far I have to say I love everything you have put out, mostly the "headless" sets! Make this set please.....pretty pretty PLEASE!

Donna said...

The card is beautiful and I love the sentiment sometimes it would be nice to be able to send a card to a close friend with the same sense of humor. I hope they get released

Karolyn L. said...

Yesssss! Sentiments with a sense of humor! Don't get me wrong, it's always nice to use a sentiment that is "nice." BUT there are more occasions when a fun and humerous sentiment just first the bill! One of my most favorite things to do "pre-homemade cardmaking" was to go to the Hallmark store and read the cards. I ALWAYS went to the humor section, and could be found laughing hysterically on the floor of the store for HOURS!!! You go, girl! If you don't sell them on your site, I'll go whereever it is that you sell them! Karolyn Loncon (garkarlon@msn.com) #47

Cherie said...

Every morning I sit down and look at my favorite blogs - "Hello"!!

I think it would be a great idea to produce "adult" type sentiments! Having messages in stamp form (better than handwriting at times) would be so nice and I like the font in your sample card.

I am very excited that you're adding to the art of stamping with these twisted sentiments. This is a fun craft and I love the new energy in it!

I equally applaud your diligence in separating it from the general stamping population. Those who like that humor, can go to it. I think that's just great and I appreciate it (even though it wouldn't offend me personally).

I will be first in line to get Twisted Sentiments.

THANK YOU!!!
