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.

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.
