Stampin’ Up! Hey Girlfriend for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders’ blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Love”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I decided to do a birthday card using the Stampin’ Up! Hey Girlfriend Cling Stamp Set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card.

I’m a Guest Designer for the month of January for the CAS Colours & Sketches. Here is their sketch #402 for this week.

I played along with the Always Fun Challenge #196. Their challenge is to use “Something New”. I used a new stamp set and new DSP

I started by adhering a panel of the Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Bermuda Bay card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink randomly on the strip of cardstock. I adhered the Rich Razzleberry panel to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped one of the girl images from the Hey Girlfriend stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bronze/Ivory, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Lovey You stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Lovely You stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink in the corners of the panel, some full strength and some stamped off once. I stamped the leafy image from the Lovey You stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Rich Razzleberry 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 Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the girl image from the Hey Girlfriend stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored her in using my Bronze/Ivory, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the flower image from the Lovey You stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on the envelope front and the leafy image from the Lovey You stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink around the girl. I adhered a panel of the Oh So Ombre DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today, I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Hey Girlfriend Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Are you all ready for another short week? I know I am. I’m really looking forward to next week when I can get back to my ‘normal’ routine. I feel like I have been in overdrive for the past 3 weeks. I need some catch up time and re-organizing time. Anyone else with me on that one?

I have another sneak peek for you using a really cute set coming in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5th. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Hey Girlfriend Cling Stamp Set for my card today along with some Rainbow Glimmer Paper.

I started by embossing a Magenta Madness card front using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Magenta Madness card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the girl images, the dog image and the balloon image from the Hey Girlfriend stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the images in using my Blackberry Bliss, Bronze, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Magenta Madness and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. On a small scrap of Rainbow Glimmer Paper I stamped the girl image from Hey Girlfriend stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, making sure to get mainly the dress. I colored the belt of the dress in using my Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends Marker, fussy cut the dress using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stamped image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the artwork out using the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hey Girlfriend stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the sentiment into a banner using the Pick A Banner Punch. I made a banner from a thin strip of Mango Melody cardstock and adhered the sentiment to the top using Glue Dots. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

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 stamped the balloon image from the Hey Girlfriend stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the sentiment and colored the balloons in using my Magenta Madness and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mango Melody 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 Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped one of the girl images from the Hey Girlfriend stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Bronze, Ivory, Magenta Madness and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. This set will be available in less than 10 days from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. 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.
