Good Thursday morning and Merry Christmas Eve my stamping friends, welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. Is everyone ready for the big day? I’m as ready as I’m going to be this year. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a sketch challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects.
Here is our sketch for this week.
Here’s my card using the sketch.
I used the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Bundle for my card today.
I started by coloring a panel of the new True Love Designer Series Paper (coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog) using my Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.
I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the stitched rectangle panel to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Seal.
On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered a piece of 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack with Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Onate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the True Love DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I adhered a panel of the colored True Love DSP to the envelope front and the envelope flap.

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST
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) – SOLD OUT

Stop by the online store to get the following Whisper White products that you love before they’re gone forever! The Thick Whisper White card stock, Whisper White 12″ x 12″ Cardstock, Medium Envelopes and Note Cards & Envelopes have already sold out!
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.
