Paper Crafting Blog Hop – January

Welcome to our January Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects from the new January-June Mini-catalog and the Sale-A-Bration flyer! I’m so glad you are checking out our blog hop this month. You may have arrived here from Annette’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I chose the Paper Blooms 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (#155222) from the Sale-A-Bration flyer for my card. The card base is Seaside Spray, a single 5-1/2″ x 11″ piece. It has a matching belly band. I used 4 pieces of the DSP and one white panel for the message. This is a fun-fold card we did for Monday Night Mystery Stamping.

The sentiment is from Approaching Perfection Cling Stamp Set (#155282), stamped in Night of Navy. It is one of the stamp sets in Level 1 you can select with a $50 purchase by February 28th. I used the Cherry Blossoms Dies (#151456) to create the flowers on the belly band and inside on the white panel.

The sentiment on the inside of my card came from Friend Like You (#149237). I also created a version of my card with Rococo Rose for the card base.

The New Basic White products

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple as long as I have been stamping, 21 years this April! We all love it. The mill that produces the Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Stampin’ Up wasn’t given much notice on this closure. Stampin’ Up jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. They 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. They have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White! The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by Stampin’ Up’s quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. Basic White cardstock is sure to become your new crafting staple!
NOTE:  This won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Gift Packaging

Welcome to our December Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects for gifting!

You may have arrived here from Annette’s blog. She had a fabulous project! I chose the Snowflake Wishes Bundle (#155172) for my card. The card base is Night of Navy, a single 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece.

I am challenging myself to use up every piece of this beautiful Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (#153512)! Four more sheets to go, but I have several anniversaries and birthdays in January! The DSP is 4″ x 12″, scored at 1-1/4″, 5″ and 10-1/4″. The snowflakes are cut from Highland Heather, Night of Navy and Whisper White. The sentiment ends are punched using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (#152883). Under the snowflakes is a piece of ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo (#152468).

Inside the card, the flap of DSP is adhered to hold a gift card. What do you think?
