    Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. I love it and I know you love it, too. Stampin’ Up! is sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing their Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, they weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to them and they can no longer offer their Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of their other cardstock, this only affects Whisper White.

    Stampin’ Up! has launched a new line of Basic White card stock and envelopes to replace Whisper White.  Available NOW!

      Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick get All Wired Up with Stampin' Up! for #tgifc299 Background Stamp Product Spotlight - Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

      TGIF! Time for a Product Spotlight! 

      Welcome to another TGIF Challenge, this week it’s a product spotlight!  BACKGROUND STAMPS!

      I recently pre-ordered two new bundles that will be available to customers starting February 2 – June 30, 2021!  Look familiar?  The Hey Chick Stamp Set is a returning favorite from the 2017 Sale-a-Bration Promotion.  But this time, it’s even BETTER as a BUNDLE! 

      Have you seen the coordinating Hey Birthday Chick Stamp Set in the 2021 Jan – June Mini Catalog?  Well, guess what?  There’s dies for that too!  You can order the stamp set now, but if you wait until February 2, you can get the BUNDLE at a 10% discount.  

      Better, yet!  Add them to a STARTER KIT

      Begin by using a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

      Use a Stamparatus to stamp the All Wired Up background stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 piece of Basic White Cardstock. 

      Use the Blending Brushes to add Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Classic Ink as shown. 

      Distress the edges with a Bone Folder (if desired). Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

      Stamp the two chicks (Hey Chick & Hey Birthday Chick) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Basic White Thick Cardstock. 

      Crop with the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the coordinating dies (Chick & Birthday Chick Dies). 

      Color with the following Stampin’ Blend Combo Packs:  Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Just Jade.

      Adhere Soft Suede Cardstock to a Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Crop with a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Chick and Birthday Chick dies. Do the same with Just Jade Cardstock and the Happy Birthday die. 

      Adhere to the card as shown by removing the protective backing from the Foam Adhesive Sheet. 

      Adhere the chicks with Stampin’ Seal and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

        Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. I love it and I know you love it, too. Stampin’ Up! is sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing their Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, they weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to them and they can no longer offer their Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of their other cardstock, this only affects Whisper White.

        Stampin’ Up! has launched a new line of Basic White card stock and envelopes to replace Whisper White.  Available NOW! 

        Have a Hoot-a-Riffic Day!
