Stampin’ Up! Christmas Means More Elf

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? I’ve got a busy couple days with work then I start my yearly Christmas baking on Wednesday night. Perfect time to be baking since we are expecting a pretty big snow storm. Last I heard they are predicting 12″-18″ of snow, but I always wait since they are seldom correct. Guess we’ll have a white Christmas this year. I normally have off today, but I felt bad that I couldn’t work this Thursday or Friday and I know how busy the dog bakery is right now, so I told them I could work today.

I have one final super fun Christmas card for you today. All my cards have now been mailed and I think I’m done for the season. I’ve been wanting to make this one and I have someone special in mind that I want to send it to. I forgot how much fun these cards are to make. Here’s my final Christmas card for the season (I hope).

I used the retiring Stampin’ Up! Christmas Means More Photopolymer Stamp Set for the inside of my card. The outside is all cut and punched pieces. I’ve seen a card similar made by Rachel Tessman, I added my own twist to it.

I started by embossing a Granny Apple Green card front using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder. I cut a panel of the Brushed Metallic cardstock using the Ornate Layers Dies. I sponged the edges of a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using Granny Apple Green Ink and my Stamping Sponge. I scored the center of the panel, folded it in half and sponged the inside edges with the Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the sponged panel to the center of the Brushed Metallic die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I took a strip of Basic Black cardstock and adhered a rectangle of Brushed Metallic cardstock in the center using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a smaller rectangle of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it in the center of the Brushed Metallic using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the belt to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 trees from a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Pine Tree Punch and embossed them using the Wrapped In Texture Embossing Folder. I adhered the trees to the top of the card front using Glue Dots, having them over lap on the score line of the center Granny Apple Green piece. I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Means More stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Brushed Metallic mat using Stampin’ Seal then to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the inside of the Granny Apple Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the feather image from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock to the bottom of the envelope front. If you know the movie Elf he wears a green hat with a yellow rim and red feather. I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.
