Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Valentine

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers. How was everyone’s weekend? Hope you were able to enjoy it. Are you ready to face another full week? I’m so happy to be back to my normal work schedule. I’m a very schedule oriented person and I like when I can plan my days in advance.

For today I’m using a mix of old and new for my card. I’m using a stamp set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and some DSP from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Host Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Stitched Be Mine Dies I cut the strip of hearts from a panel of Love You Always Foil Sheet in Blushing Bride. I adhered it to the card front using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few of the hearts back in the cut out and on the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped one of the heart images from the Meant To Be stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Touched My Heart Host stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, overlapping the heart. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a small bow made from the new Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Meant To Be stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. Using the Stitched Be Mine Dies, I cut both sides of the panel with the scalloped edge. I adhered some of the foil hearts from the die cut on the card front using Glue Dots down the one side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped another one of the heart images from the Meant To Be stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Love You Always Specialty DSP 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! Posted For You Love CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Is everyone having a good weekend? I’m going into work today. It seemed very odd having yesterday off, I’m definitely not complaining. I usually work every Saturday so it was nice not having to get up and out of the house early.

I have a pretty Clean and Simple card for you today, at least I think it is. I used the Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Bundle along with the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Global Design Project #273.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of a panel of the Peony Garden DSP in Night of Navy Ink. I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a strip of Soft Seafoam cardstock using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the Posted For You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I punched the image out using the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch and adhered it to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small flower from the Prized Peony stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small flower from the Prized Peony stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored them in using my Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Peony Garden DSP 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! Special Someone Valentine

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend starting off? I actually have the day off, which is very unusual for a weekend with me. I was able to get my entire house undecorated yesterday except for my tree. My husband will be taking that down today, I can’t touch it since I’m allergic to it. I always hate undecorating and having to pack everything away. The good part is, I’ll be bringing out all my snowmen and winter decorations soon, once I give the house a good cleaning.

For today’s card the owner of where I get my hair done asked me to make her a few Valentine’s cards. She wants one for each of her grandchildren and one for her husband. Here’s the 1st one I made for her granddaughter.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card.

I started by embossing a panel of Magenta Madness using the Lace 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Magenta Madness 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Magenta Madness card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the fill image in Sahara Sand Ink over the outline image. I stamped a couple of the butterflies from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the raccoon and colored them in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the racoon out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. On the same panel I stamped the heart balloon outline image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink. I stamped the heart balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the string image in Early Espresso Ink. I cut the balloon and string out using the Special Day Dies. Using the Layering Ovals Dies I cut the scalloped oval from a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock. I adhered the raccoon image to the scalloped oval using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the balloon to the string using a Glue Dot and adhered it to the raccoon using a Glue Dot. I had cut a tiny bow from a scrap of Poppy Parade using the Special Day Dies and adhered it to the string by the raccoons paws using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Magenta Madness Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Magenta Madness Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline balloon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink in 2 of the corners. I stamped the balloon fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamped off once. I stamped a couple of the butterfly images from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink by the sentiment. I colored the butterflies in using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outline raccoon image from the Special Someone stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the raccoon fill image over the outline image in Sahara Sand Ink. I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Hydrangea for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Here is our sketch for this week.

Here’s my card using this sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Bundle for my card along with the gorgeous new Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.

I started by cutting a panel of the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the DSP to a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using Stampin’ Seal and then to a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a Seaside Spray card front using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Many Messages stamp set, I stamped the sentiments in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiments out using the Messages Dies. I adhered a piece of Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to the artwork using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the bakers twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pastel Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Hydrangea Hill DSP to the front of the envelope and a panel to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Back To Back Blooms CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I’m very excited to be a Guest Designer for the month of January for the CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge. I used the new Stampin’ Up! Back To Back Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card. Here is my card for today.

Here are the Colours & Sketch Colors for Challenge #401 this week.

I started by stamping the flower and leaf images from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest flower from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set on the top of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the fussy cut flower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Cherry Cobbler card base using Stampin’ Seal and added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the top by the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the large flower image and the leaf image from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler 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 stamped the large flower image and the leaf image from the Back to Back Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and the smaller flower images on the envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Cherry Cobbler and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? Why is it weekends go so quick and weekdays seem to drag? I’ll be working again today and I have a feeling it’s going to be a slow day, like watching paint dry slow. Yesterday I worked a little later than I expected, I forgot it was the 1st of the year and I had to do a little extra with my bills.

For today I have another Black & White card for you. I’m usually all about color, not quite sure what’s going on with me. I used the Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Cling Stamp Set for my card which is a Sale-A-Bration item. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the TGIF Color Challenge #297.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Heal Your Heart stamp set (available January 5th) on the bottom of a Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I embossed the panel using the Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Heal Your Heart stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the dandelion image from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the True Love Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my Clean and Simple, Quick and Easy card for today and will give it a try. This stamp set is a free set during Sale-A-Bration starting Tuesday January 5th, with a qualifying order of $50. If you are in need of a catalog, please feel free to drop me a note and I will get one out to you ASAP. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Hello

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s long weekend going? I have to go into work for a bit today. Since the store was closed yesterday I have to go in today to get all my bills out. Hopefully everything will go nice and smooth and I’ll be out shortly after noon.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Bundle which is in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog along with some gorgeous DSP that will be available in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog starting on Tuesday January 5th. Here’s my card for today.

My design was inspired from the Global Design Project #272.

I played along with Just Us Girl’s Challenge #565. They have a Word Week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item available Jan. 5th) to a Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut the image using one of the border dies from the Curvy Dies. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment and 2 birds from the Quite Curvy stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the birds in using my Balmy Blue and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using the Curvy Dies. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I also cut the next size larger die from a panel of Just Jade cardstock.

I adhered the curved border to the left side of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the birds to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the leaf image and the bird images from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Just Jade and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Rococo Rose mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the leaf and bird images from the Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Just Jade and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Oh So Ombre DSP 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!!

I fussy cut the donkey using my Paper Snips.

I embossed a small panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. Using my new Blending Brushes, I added some Gray Granite Ink to the panel. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pacific Point mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the donkey to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Darling Donkey stamp set and the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Cling Stamp Set.

I adhered the sentiment to the top right side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the donkey to the bottom left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sitting donkey from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Gray Granite and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Wisper White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning and Happy New Year’s Eve my stamping friends, welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. Is everyone ready to say good-bye to 2020? I sure am. This will be a year to remember for sure, a different kind of year. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a theme challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects.
Here is our theme for this week.

Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Bundle for my card today along with the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a Pool Party card front to a Bermuda Bay card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of the Ice Cream Corner DSP to a Bermuda Bay mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the ice cream cone image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the waffle image on top of the cone image in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut the cone out using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. I stamped the ice cream image from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set 3 times on the panel of Whisper White cardstock, once in Petal Pink Ink, once in Bumblebee Ink stamped off once and once in Soft Seafoam Ink. I cut all the images out using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. I stamped the sprinkle image from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Petal Pink ice cream.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the splatter image from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Pool Party Ink multiple times on the panel. I adhered the ice cream cone to the panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the Soft Seafoam ice cream on top of the cone using Glue Dots. I adhered the Bumblebee ice cream on top of the Soft Seafoam using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Petal Pink on the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sprinkle image from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set around the sentiment in Pool Party Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the splatter image from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set in Pool Party Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Ice Cream Corner DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Sneak Peek CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Happy New Year’s Eve Eve. Well, it’s almost time to say good bye to 2020. I have to admit, I’m not going to miss this year. There were a few highlights for me, one was after 14 years we finally went on a family vacation to Disney. I’m hoping 2021 will be a healthy year for all and we can get past this Covid and go back to our ‘normal’ lives. How about you, what are you all hoping for?

For today’s card I went out of my comfort zone a little bit, every once in a while I like to do that. Everyone knows I love my colors. Sometimes I use 2 or 3 and other times I used 5 or 6. Well, not today. Today is Black and White. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. This set is a free Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying purchase. I also used the True Love Designer Series Paper, but didn’t add color this time.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of the True Love DSP to the right side of the embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the humming bird, butterfly and sentiment from the A Touch of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the images out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the die cut images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the True Love DSP to either side 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 Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the butterfly and humming bird images from the A Touch of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of True Love DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. The items to make this card will be available January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Happy Stamping!!

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)
  • 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.
