3.) Post and Link it back to our Blog so we can see it at http://www.cutcardstock.blogspot.com/ .

So now you see how super easy it is to win some of our Gorgeous Cardstock thru Gift Certificates. So if today where your at is anything like it is here in Indiana humid and ucky this is a great excuse to stay in and enjoy the air conditioning and create something fabulous.

I just finished working on a card where I used the wonderful French Poptone line in the beautiful Cotton Candy shade.
Some of my other favorite shades are the Banana Split, Orange Fizz, and of course the Gorgeous RazzleBerry. So if your anything like me and can't make up your mind we carry a wonderful Sample Pack for only $6.50 . Look at these Yummy colors. I know hard to resist right ?!

OK and if you thought that was hard to resist you should see the matching French Pop Tone envelopes. The price on these are only $4.75 for 25 on the A1 size. For a pack of 50 its $7.15-$9.55 depending on the size. Walmart cant even touch these prices nor can you find these colors easily available any where.

What I also like about this French Pop Tones line is that:

1.)Pop-tone is made to an alkaline PH and buffered with archival properties for greater longevity.

2.)Pop-tone has been formulated with the best dyes and pigments in the industry, making it one of the most light fast, fade resistant papers available.

3.)Laser and Ink Jet Guaranteed, acid and chlorine free.

4.)Produced with the use of GREEN POWER.

Until our next post , Have a Blessed Day !

Inspiration for "Cut It Up" Sketch Contest : Projects Using Star Dream Metallics and Curious Iridescent

Here are some projects I created using inspiration from the sketches and Cut Card Stock.com products ( contest details at bottom of post):



I used the sketch above on this altered clipboard. I also used the Star Dream Metallics Onyx & Mars.For the scalloped circle I used Curious Iridescent Cryogen White. It really is soooo hard to capture just how pretty this cardstock is. They glimmer and really add such beauty to any project !

Also using the sketch above I created this card using the Star Dream Mettallic Copper. Whats wonderful is that most of these colors can be ordered pre-folded as this one was so your ready to create and work quickly. I also used for the strip Curious Metallic Ionised & for the scalloped Circle I used Curious Metallic Anodised. These colors are just stunning. Can you imagine them used for Wedding Invitations ? !Of course I could not get enough of these GORGEOUS metallic I just had to make a layout using the other sketch.With this sketch I decided to do a layout using some more of these YUMMY Star Dream Metallic in Sapphire & for the rose I used the Star Dream Metallic Mars.

Keep an eye out in the next few weeks for a tutorial on how to make this beautiful cardstock rosette here on our Blog site. If you get a chance visit tell me what you think about these projects and our products. Is there something special your looking for or even if you just want to show me some of your work.
