Better 1 or Better 2… Nope It’s Not an Eye Exam!

Click the image to see the items used in this card.

I earned the Berry Blessing Stamp Set and Berry Delightful Designer Series paper with my $100 order during Sale-a-Bration.

Who wouldn’t love this fun set!

Plus it coordinates with the Sweet Stawberry bundle found in the Mini Catalog.

Double the Fun!

The only problem is… Oh and don’t let that shadow effect on the sentiment of the berry background card sway you- it was a happy accident when I dropped my block! Talk about luck.

Here are the measurements for the card that will give you the look on the left. One thing I forgot to mention was that I ran out of the picnick plaid because I made so many of these cards that when I went to design my card class we had to flip the paper pattern. Thank goodness for the product coordination of Stampin’ Up!

  • Real Red Cardstock base 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 1/4 and 5 1/2
  • Berry Delightful DSP 4 x 5 1/4, 4 x 1 1/2 and 4 x 2
  • Basic White Card Stock 2 pieces 2 3/4 x 3 3/4

Just a few tips when you make the card- 1. Use your bone folder to burnish those scores or the card won’t lay down right. 2. Tear and tape the smaller top section AFTER adhering the DSP even if you burnished well, you will be happy you did.

The inside.

Here is a fun technique to modify your stamps… cellophane tape (Scotch tape if you only know it by the brand name). Use a piece to block of the words you DON’T want to stamp. Ink the sentiment and remove the tape and stamp your card.

SALE-A-Bration -A “Berry” Cute Sneak Peek

Did you know I hate strawberries? Blue berries are that much higher on my list but raspberries…that’s a different story! That’s only to eat them though because they are completely cute in the Berry Blessing stamp set and coordinating Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper you can earn FREE during SALE-a-bration.

One of the best “perks” about being a demonstrator is not the high quality product, early access to new stamps, ink and paper, 20-25% discount or even the extra income I make for my family- trust me all of that is amazing but the best perk is really the incredible relationships I have with my stamping family.

This card is a perfect example, even when we can’t get together for our monthly card swap my stamping family sent me their cards. The one above is from Leigh Amburgey see the other cute ways she uses the set on her blog.

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. We know preorder is a time for you to purchase new items to prepare for the upcoming months of your business so we wanted to give you this information before Whisper White products sell out and before all Basic White products are fully ready so you can include it in your business planning. 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)

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 productsmay be available at the same time.
