Banner Year & More

Today’s cards all have one thing in common, Designer Series Paper. While they all use different stamp sets for sentiments they put our beautiful paper on display.

Check out these first two cards using the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (152486).

This first card uses the Banner Year Stamp Set (153464), Banner Pick a Punch (153608), and Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch (152709). Done with some simple stamping too this card uses Just Jade and Poppy Parade to send a bit of holiday cheer. The card has lots of texture too since the background has been embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder (152702).

And how about this next card that teams up that same Designer Series Paper pattern with the Toile Christmas stamp set (150469) and Cardinal Christmas dies (150640)?

I love the way the Red Rhinestone Jewels (146924), have been used on the holly branch for a bit of shine. And can you name that lovely delicate die used as a back drop for the sentiment? If you name the Ornate Layers Dies (152726) they your absolutely right!

And finally a fun gate fold card using our beautiful Feels like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper () and the Perfect Plaid Stamp set (149418) and Stitched Nested Labels Dies (149638).

Talk about shine! It also uses some of the lovely Blue Adhesive Backed Gems (153547).

Snow Wonder & More

Today’s cards are both traditional and whimsical and use different sets that you’ll find in the Mini Catalog. This first card uses the Snow Wonder stamp set (153344).

It also is a fun fold that is created with a few score lines and uses the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 Designer Series Paper (153489).

And this next card uses the Sweetest Time stamp set (153436) that is part of the Year End Closeout Sale. It has been teamed up with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (153527) and uses our Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon (144146) that has been colored with our Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends (154880). Cut in half it gives a nice little gold edge that peeks out along the sentiment piece.

And onto some more whimsical cards for our animal lovers. This next card highlights a pair of love birds and uses the Have a Hoot stamp set (153389).

Owls, I don’t know about you, but we have one that has pretty vocal lately. It’s nice to hear it’s little who..who in the house late at night and even early morning before the sun rises.

And this last card uses the Yuletide Pasture stamp set (153316).

The Layering Ovals Dies (151771) have been used along with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder (153576) for some added texture and interest.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing more projects with you including the Banner Year stamp set, it is one of those sets that is great for multiple occasions.

Whisper White Card Stock is Retiring

Stampin’ Up! just announced today the following:

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″ Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ Envelopes (145829)

  • 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.

Freezin’ Fun, Team Shoe Box & More

Every year we gather as a team in December for our Annual Team Luncheon which includes a Shoe Box Swap. For me it is one of my favorite meetings as there is lots of food, laughter, sharing, and stamping. And while things were a bit different this year we still had a great time together bringing a dish to share and a stamping too.

The classroom was set up with social distancing in mind

And everyone received a little team gift from me too

which included some items to use in the Shoe Box Swap I designed (I’ll be sharing that project with you soon) along with some Team lanyard charms and title recognition.

Yes, these are Stampin’ Up! embellishments lol. They can be used for all kinds of things!

After the luncheon we had fun stamping a wide variety of projects. It’s part of what I love about gathering, everyone has a different style and shares what they love to do. All of the projects were great and I couldn’t choose a favorite.

This first card is a Center Step card stamped with one of my favorite sets from the Mini, the Freezin’ Friends Bundle (155176)

In addition to the Freezin’ Friend Bundle this card also uses the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (153512) and Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder (153576). We colored the cute little animals using our Stampin’ Blends and added some Frost White Shimmer Paint (147046) to the trees.

This next card uses the Back on Your Feet stamp set (149385) and is a fun fold.

Also colored with our Stampin’ Blends it uses each of the images to create 3 panels for a great get well card.

How cute is that? And the final card was another get well using the Healing Hugs stamp set (148223) and the Boho Indigo Designer Series Paper that is part of the Boho Indigo Product Medley (153132). Isn’t it great we have a refill (153925) for this kit so we can keep creating?

And now for some fun 3d Shoe Box Swaps. This first one is a cute little 2×2 box using our Friend Like You stamp set (149237).

I just love the way the Champagne Foil sheet (144748) picks up the color from the Cinnamon Cider Designer Series Paper (153070) and of course the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon (153548) adds a bit more sparkle to the project.

And how about a fun décor item? Here is an inexpensive photo frame we made using the Beautiful World stamp set (152994), Playful Alphabet Dies (152706) and our beautiful, World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (152491).

Now all I need to do is pop in a photo. And my final project I wanted to share with you is the fun little get well mini tissue holder. Perfect to brighten someone’s day who is feeling a bit under the weather.

The bright and cheerful project uses the Painted Poppies (151599) and Timeless Tulips (151164) stamp sets along with our Stampin’ Blends and the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (152486).

And here are 2 more fun projects, a little paper box that’s been painted and decorated with our Forever Fern Bundle (154094)

and cute little nail file holder using the Little Treats Bundle (155204) and Toil Tidings Designer Series Paper (150432)

whew… Lots of stamping going on like I said and such great projects!

Menagerie Mix Up

Like mixing it up? As a child I had Colorforms – Do you remember them? Kind of like the paper dolls I loved to play with, but more durable. The outfits were vinyl pieces that would stick to any glossy surface—and each other—over and over again, for countless creative combinations. Such a simple toy but my sister and I spent hours playing with them. Well that’s what the Menagerie Mix Up Bundle (155179) reminds me of as this childhood toy since this set allows you to create countless combinations too.

And today I’ll be sharing a couple of cards with you using this set. This first one is an adorable little reindeer for the holidays.

The card also uses our Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper (153491) and All the Trimmings Embellishments (153540) that are part of the Year End Closeout Sale.

And this next one is a little lamb that is done in shades of Purple Posy and Misty Moonlight.

The Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (153512) has been used along with our Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon (144213). I just love this ribbon since you can change the color up sooooo easily. Like here, a few strokes of the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends and you’ve got a coordinating ribbon! How great is that? And that little scarf picks up the silver edging on the ribbon since it has been cut from the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (150444).

So what do you think? Fun? I can see making this into a fun toy too. Stamp lots of pieces, mount them onto a thin magnetic sheet and you’ve got a fun toy that will give hours of playtime!

You can find these items and more in our Year End Closeout Sale in my Online Store, but remember items are while supplies last.
