Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sailing Home for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. 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 amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Bundle.

I started by adhering a panel of Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base, only around the edges, with Stampin’ Seal. Using my Layering Circles Dies, I cut a circle out of the center of the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the starfish image from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Smooth Sailing Dies and my Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped the seaweed images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, Just Jade on Just Jade card stock and Soft Sea Foam on Soft Sea Foam cardstock and cut the images out using my Seaside Shells Dies. I cut the larger seaweed image from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I stamped a couple of the small seashells from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set on scraps of Sand & Sea DSP and cut them out using the Seaside Shells Dies.

I adhered the lighthouse to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the bottom. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front across the circle, using Glue Dots. I arranged the seaweed and shells on the side of the circle and adhered them down using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the top of a panel of Sand & Sea DSP and adhered it to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. On the panel of Basic white cardstock I stamped the larger sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Misty Moonlight and the smaller sailboat in Basic Gray Inks and cut them out using my Smooth Sailing Dies. I cut another circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the cloud image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off twice, on the top of the circle. I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I adhered the circle to the center of the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sailboats to the bottom of the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure to be able to see them through the card front.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pet Cat Birthday

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your having a good start to your weekend. I’m off this weekend. Both my jobs are closed tomorrow and I took off today to prep for our Easter brunch tomorrow. We started doing brunch a few years ago and everyone seems to love it. It is a lot more work that dinner though. I finished all my Easter Egg bread baking last night. I forgot how long of a process it is to make, but WELL worth it.

For today I have a birthday card for my niece who will be turning 40 tomorrow, on Easter. Her and I have always been so close, she’s like a daughter to me. I don’t know what I would ever do without her, she’s that great. She loves animals, but really loves her dog and cats so I thought I’d make her a cat card this year. I used the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Bundle for my card today along with the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Mojo Monday Sketch #556. I love layered cards and this one has a lot of layers.

I started by adhering a panel of Playful Pets DSP to a Basic Gray card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered panels of Playful Pets DSP to Basic Gray mats using Stampin’ Seal and adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I cut a coordinating scalloped circle from a panel of Basic Gray cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the butterfly and mouse images from the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the cat image from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the cat image out using my Pets Dies and adhered it to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Basic White circle to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I threaded one of the Playful Pets Trinkets using the Snail Mail Twine and tied a bow. I left very long tails on the bow so I could wrap it around the cat. I adhered the heart to the card front using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cat image on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Playful Pets DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Gray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cat image from the Pampered Pets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Flirty Flamingo and Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Playful Pets DSP on the envelope front and a panel of 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! Flowering Cactus for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends Happy April!!! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. 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 amazing projects. Here is my card using this weeks sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley for my card. This is such a great group of products, I’m going to be sorry to see it retire.

I started by embossing a Mossy Meadow card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the card front to Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut 2 panel of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the 2 panels together on an angle using Stampin’ Seal then adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the stitched circle in Mossy Meadow Ink. From a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock I cut a coordinating scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies and adhered the stitched circle to it using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small cactus image from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the small double flower image in Calypso Coral Ink 3 times. I cut the images out using my Flowering Cactus Dies. I adhered the flowers to the cactus using Glue Dots. I adhered the cactus to the bottom of the stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a multi loop bow using the Calypso Coral twine from the Product Medley, and adhered it to the bottom of the stitched circle using a Glue Dot. I adhered the circle 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 Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the Basic White panel. I stamped the small cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel twice. I stamped 1 set of the flowers on each cactus in Calypso Coral Ink and adhered another flower which I had cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

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

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty Peek-A-Boo Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Celebrate Easter challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Beauty Cling Stamp Set . I was inspired by the colors in the photo along with the little bunnies on the bottom for my clean and layered card today.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #152. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Seal. I placed a Petal Pink card front on the card base and using my Layering Circle Dies I ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I cut another panel of Petal Pink cardstock using my Layering Circle Dies and made a scalloped frame for the card front.

I embossed the card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the scalloped frame on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink and cut it out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I made a bow using the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it the the scalloped frame using Glue Dots. I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the bunny image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink making sure it would be seen through the circle on the card front. I stamped the grass image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set around the bunny in Just Jade Ink, some full strength and some stamped off. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink towards the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bunny image from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the grass image around the bunny in Just Jade Ink. I adhered a panel of the 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! A Touch Of Ink Thank You

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I’ll be at work all day today and tomorrow. Tomorrow is the last day of the month so I have to close out the books. Hopefully it will be a short day. Speaking of the last day of the month, Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow. Don’t miss out on those awesome stamp sets and Designer Series Paper.

For today I used one more of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and DSP for my card. Even though Sale-A-Bration was 2 months, I feel like I didn’t have enough time to play with everything. Here’s my card for today.

I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the gorgeous Oh So Ombre 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Oh So Ombre DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On another strip of the Oh So Ombre DSP I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the lightest end of the paper. I cut the strip into a banner using my Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline flower, outline leaves and the outline hummingbird images from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Poppy Parade, Purple Posy and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using largest circle from my Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered the artwork to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Purple Posy Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in tuxedo Black Ink towards the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the corner of the panel and colored them in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Oh So Ombre mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the outlined flower and outlined leaves images from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Just Jade and Purple Posy 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!!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Masculine

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Ours has started with a HUGE snow storm. I’ve learned not to believe weather forecasts until they happen, I guess they were right this time. I went into work yesterday, even though the store was closed, to get my bills done and caught up on my work. The walk in was bad, but the walk home was horrible. I couldn’t see the snow was coming down so hard and nothing was plowed or shoveled. That was the best workout I’ve ever gotten just walking to and from work. The snow was at my knees at 1pm yesterday when I walked home and it’s still coming down this morning. This makes up for not having any snow last year. I’ll be heading back into work this morning to finish everything up since I had to leave early yesterday.

I have a masculine card for you today. I always seem to struggle with masculine cards, but every once in a while something will pop in my head and I run with it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set for today’s card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Ivory and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On the Basic White panel I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the bird out using my Dockside Dies and adhered it to the circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Neutrals DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Neutrals 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! Oh Snap Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s Christmas? I had a very quiet one this year, it was just my husband, daughter and I at home. We usually have all the family over for Christmas Eve, but with everything going on right now, I felt better with no one coming over. I hope you were all able to spend some time with loved ones in one way or another. Was Santa good to all of you? Maybe some new stamp sets or DSP.

I have a sneak peek for you of an upcoming set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I saw this set and my little nephew loves alligators and crocodiles so I just had to get it. It’s the Stampin’ Up! Oh Snap Photopolymer Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Fab Friday Challenge #204. Here are their colors.

I played along with Crazy 4 Challenges #565 using sketch #518. Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the crocodile, fish and frog images from the Oh Snap stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the leaf image from the Oh Snap stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade & Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped the sentiments from the Oh Snap stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the panel on top and center of the crocodile.

I adhered a panel of Pear Pizzazz Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies out of a scrap of Poppy Parade cardstock and adhered it in the top corner of the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a piece of the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon to the right side using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the crocodile and fish images from the Oh Snap stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiments from the Oh Snap stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the panel. I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. Since I am hand delivering the card I stamped the whole crocodile image from the Oh Snap stamp set on the front of the envelope along with the fish image. I colored the images in using my Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you like my card. The stamp set I used will be available on January 5, 2021 from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. If you need a demonstrator and would like a copy of the catalog, drop me a line at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one out to you. 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)

Stampin’ Up! Posted For You for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? It’s very cold here. We got quite a bit of snow yesterday and it’s continuing into today. Perfect day for me to be baking. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects.
Here are our colors for this week

Here’s my card using these colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Cling Stamp Set for my card today. My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #486. Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a panel of Pool Party cardstock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the floral image from the Posted For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the round sentiment from the Posted For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the same panel of Whisper White cardstock. I cut the images out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. Using the Layering Circles Die, I cut 2 circles from a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. I cut 4 scalloped circles from a panel of Early Espresso cardstock matching the sizes of the circles, using the Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the circles to the scalloped circles using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Posted For You stamp set in Versamark Ink on a strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a small piece of 1/4″ Old Olive Ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack using a small amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 2 stamped circles to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the 2 DSP circles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Posted For You stamp set in Pool Party Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Posted For You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the front of the envelope. I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly CAS

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? We’re having some beautiful fall weather here.

For today’s card I used the Spotlight Technique. My upline Jaimie used it the other day and I just had to try it. You can see her card Here. I have a nice Clean and Simple card for you today. Here’s my card.

My design is from CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #392. Here is their sketch.

I cut a circle from a panel of Whisper White cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I lightly adhered the circle to a Whisper White card front using the tiniest amount of Stampin’ Seal so that I could remove it easily. I stamped the holly image from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I removed the circle and colored just the image on the circle in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the circle to a Cherry Cobbler scalloped circle mat, which I cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals making sure to have it overhang on the left side about 1/4″. I trimmed the circle even with my card font using my Paper Snips.

I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink on the right side of the card front. I adhered the card front to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I stamped the holly image from the Joyful Holly stamp set on the top and bottom corner using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the holly image from the Joyful Holly stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce 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! Arrange A Wreath for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew 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 Jaimie Babarczy’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Giving Thanks”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Paper Players Challenge #512. Here are their beautiful fall colors.

I also played along with Double “D” Challenge. Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut one of the wreaths from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock and adhered it to a wreath from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Designer Series Paper using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped 5 of the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock and cut them out using the Wreath Builder Dies. I cut 5 flowers out of a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock using the Wreath Builder Dies. I adhered the flowers and leaves to the wreath using Glue Dots.

I cut a circle out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Layering Circle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the circle. I adhered the wreath to the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I made a small bow using the 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon and adhered it to the wreath using Glue Dots. I added Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flowers and leaf images from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Ink on the panel and colored the flower centers in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Ink along the bottom of the envelope front and colored the flower centers in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.
