Whisper White THICK Card Stock & A Quick Tip

Have you tried the Thick Whisper White Card Stock? I LOVE it! Sometimes you really want a white card base, but the regular Whisper White just isn't sturdy enough. But sometimes it's hard to tell which package you have in front of you. I decided to share a quick tip with you. Here is a picture of both packages next to each other. Can you tell the difference?


I highlight the word "THICK" so I can see it quickly:


This has helped quite a bit when I need to grab a new pack!

Stamp-A-Stack Sandy's Watercolor Wishes Gorgeous Grunge Butterfly

Last Saturday was the May Stamp-A-Stack. We did 5 cards, but one of them I've already shared. You can see it here: Wavy Split Card. Here is card #2. My downline Sandy did this for one of the Make & Takes at a recent Stamp Share.



Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White
(my card has Whisper White, but for the S-A-S I used Very Vanilla)

The Watercolor Wishes stamp set is part of the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit and can not be purchased separately. I recommend you buy it! The cards are fun to make and the stamp set is awesome! And it's carrying over to the 2016-2017 Catalog! Woohoo!

Dying Ribbon To Get The Color You Want

I was working on a card for the May Technique Training (see the Calendar of Events tab at the top of the page for more information on this class) and realized I didn't have any ribbon in the color I needed. So I made some! I took white ribbon and dipped it in a little bit of water and a few drops of Calypso Coral ink refill.



I put a strip of Calypso Coral next to the ribbons so you can see it's not as dark, but definitely a lighter shade of it. I tried dipping one again to see if it would get darker, but I didn't notice any difference. Next time I would put more ink refill in the water. I used 3 drops for these. You can see in the top picture that the water doesn't completely cover the bottom of the little bowl I used.

Grateful Bunch Box Basket

We have two Carol's in our group. Since one of them has a late December birthday, we call her "Christmas Carol". She is the Queen of 3D projects! Here is the Make & Take she had for us this month:




(I have a clear block behind them to get a better angle for the pictures)


Colors: Blushing Bride, Hello Honey, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White

Also uses English Garden Designer Series Paper which was on the Retiring List and has sold out.

These are made from an 8 x 8" piece of card stock, scored and punched with the Envelope Punch Board. The Tear & Tape is awesome for boxes!
