Curious CRYOGEN WHITE & Copic Markers

Just received a very helpful email from Karen Wallace, one of CutCardStock.com's customers.
Karen Wrote:

"I use your cryogen white paper with my copics to color and memento black ink to stamp on it, if you would like to take a look at my blog, anything stamped in black and colored is using the cryogen paper, best thing on the market for copics!!!! They blend easier on that paper and the memento ink does NOT run with them, no heat setting no nothing. I’ve taken several classes with the copics and they don’t use the cryogen white and it’s always such a struggle to make them blend and work. I think the only stamp I didn’t use the cryogen white on was Flourishes big Santa stamp and I used the smooth beige paper for him."

Checkout Karen's Inspirations.


Karen also mentioned that the CRYOGEN WHITE 80# text paper also works great with the Copic Markers.

Many other customers have told us that the Curious Iridescent Papers and Copic Markers are a great combination. Other colors available with the same finish as the Cryogen white are:
Poison Ivory - is a natural color with a satiny sparkly/metallic finish
Virtual Pearl - is a Pearl color the that has reflective changes in the light
Morphing Mauve - is a gentle mauve color that has reflective changes in the light
Cyber Gray - is a soft satiny gray (non-sparkly, non-reflective)



We have tried to photograph the subtle shimmery cardstock and find that it is almost impossible to capture the luxury of this paper.



CHANGES COMING TO THE CURIOUS LINE: The colors listed above are from the Curious Iridescent line, but are currently being renamed and joining the Curious Metallic line. The finish is softer than the Metallics, but the manufacturer is combining them all in the one line, so we, too, will be grouping the Curious Iridescent and the Curious Metallic into one grouping called CURIOUS METALLIC . This change is also resulting in the discontinuing of the following colors: Curious Metallic CAPPUCCINO (cover & text), Curious Iridescent PLASMA BLUE (cover & text), Curious Metallic ANODISED (cover & text, although text is still available from the manufacture, cutcardstock will not be carrying it), Curious Metallic BLUE STEEL (cover), Curious Metallic VENOM (cover), Curious Metallic Hades (cover), Curious Metallic BRONZE ORE (cover), and Curious Metallic PURPLE HAZE (text)

Kelly Landers from SCS

Wanting to wish everyone a Merry Chsristmas and a Happy New Year with
a Great Big Thanks for allowing us to service your cardstock & envelope needs
this year !
More Fantastic projects from the SCS talented ladies.

Today we are featuring work from Kelly Landers.
What a Super Creative Designer she is !

Check out this adorable "Happiness Jar" she created using
our cardstock.



Printing on our Cardstock is always in option when you are in need of Pattern Paper.


Kelly used our Stardream Crystal to print these happiness tags.

Creating your own art work for Home Decor has never been easier to do. Look what you can do with Great Cardstock and a simple stamped image.

Kelly used our Cryogen White to stamp on and than layered our Hot Fudge Pop Tone and than our Via Linen in Sunflower underneath all as a matt. BEAUTIFUL !

Embossing our cardstock to create patterns is another great alternative.



The card is called Peace. I love how it came out! Kelly used the Whitewash Coredinations paper and ran the background paper through the Cuttlebug with a snowflake embossing folder. The trees were created by stamping onto the same paper and then sanding away the black ink leaving the darker core showing on the edges. She also was able to color on top of the whitewash with her Copics to create the leaves and the trunk of the tree.

So many GREAT ideas Kelly and we Thank You for your hard work !

I hope that you were able to draw some inspiration from these fantastic ideas.
Have a Creative and Blessed Day !

Deb Felts from SCS and some new Products

Amazement is the best way to describe how I feel about Deb Felts stamp work !
Deb's stamp work is just perfection.
I loved what she did here using our Wausau Royal Linen 80 lb Cover in Burgandy.
Her layering and stitching are a perfect addition to our linen cardstock.



Look how Sweet this card is and her motive behind it is even Sweeter. Make sure to head over to Deb's Blog to read how this card came about.
She used our Curious Iridescent in Cryogen White and our BASIS DK Orange 80lb Cover Cardstock.



Look at this adorable card and little girl stamp. Deb layerd our Wausau Royal Linen 80 lb Cover in Burgandy and our French POP-TONE 65 lb cover wt cardstock in Gum Drop Green to create the flap on this card.



Deb your work is stunning really and we so appreciate your hard work !

Titled "My Mother is Love" and it is a fabulous expression of Love!



Just looking at it I can almost feel my own Mother's arms around me.
For this layout Jennie used our Kraft Chipboard as a simple background for this layout. Just BEAUTIFUL !

So ever busy at work Jennie also created for us this Fantastic layout titled "Miss You" House



I so get your sentiment behind this layout Jennie. I too miss and loved my very first house!

More Designs from Ashley Cannon Newell

Today I have some more Fantastic creations from Ashley Cannon Newell.

She created this GORGEOUS Baby Invitation that I could not wait to show you guys:


Ashley says,
This template is a perfect way to make simple petal invites. I made one using a baby shower theme. Instead of the typical, "Join Us for a Baby Shower" sentiment, I combined a few of my Papertrey Ink stamps to come up with this one! I stamped the sentiment on a shipping tag to signify a new baby! The giraffe makes the invitation a bit more fun along with the brown gingham ribbon. I think the mommy-to-be for this shower definitely knows she's having a boy!

Instructions
Draw faux stitching with marker.
On shipping tag, stamp sentiment.
Stamp giraffe on kraft cardstock, color, and cut out.
Tie ribbon around invitation.
Add shipping tag.
Add giraffe (adhere rhinestones to giraffe's eyes).
Supplies
Stamps :: Papertrey Ink - bitty baby blessings, paper tray (invited, but only stamped invite); Fiskars
Ink :: Stampin' Up! - chocolate chip (marker too); Copics; Uniball - white gel pen
Paper :: Cut Cardstock - 6.25" aqua square petal card invitation

Ashley also created this Beautiful "Wedding Wishes" card.

Instructions:
Trim card base to an A2 size.
Die cut label and stamp design.
Stamp leaves.
Punch hole through die cut, then tie ribbon into a bow and add pearl.
Stamp sentiment and adhere.
Supplies
Stamps :: Waltzingmouse - very vintage labels no. 4; Papertrey Ink - giga guidelines, life
Ink :: Papertrey Ink - plum pudding, lavender moon
Paper :: Cut Cardstock.com -Stardream Metallic Amethyst purple; Papertrey Ink - white, lavender moon

SCS Fabulous Creations !

Yay we have some fantastic designers I can't wait show case. Gorgeous projects and a ton of inspiration!

We asked the very TALENTED SplitCoastStampers designers known as "The Dirty Dozen" to create some projects/cards with our product.

The first designer I want to showcase is so super, duper talented that I spent a good morning enjoying all of her fabulous inspiration on her Blog.

Ashley Cannon Newell designs are so innovative and just simply Gorgeous !

Here are a few fantastic ideas from Ashley:




Ashley said she decided to try out our Pocket Fold Invitation.
I've always wanted to make these, but it is super difficult because cardstock just is not large enough. Then you have to deal with the pocket and everything, which means you might as well buy one, right?! This was super easy to design because the template was already there! I trimmed down the top part a bit to show off the label a little better, but everything else remained the same. I even ran the top portion through my Cuttlebug (twice) to get the polka dot embossed image! On the inside, I used some of their shimmer cardstock. It prints extremely well.

She also created this fantastic Place Card:


I adhered a matching label, with an attendees name to a place card. The label was stamped using Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No. 4. The "antique key" is a rubber stamp by Rubber Stampede (picked up from Michaels or A.C. Moore). The decorative trim is a punch by EK Success (picked up from Michaels). The name on the place card was stamped using Papertrey Ink's fresh alphabet. The invite was created in Photoshop CS4.

Thank you Ashley for bringing us a great idea on how to use our Pocket Folds and Placecards.
Now if you would like to see more of Ashley's work and the other Split Coast Stampers make sure to keep an eye on our Blog here.

So much more INSPIRATION to come !

Just a quick reminder...... you won't want to miss out on our current sale.
15% off our allready great prices on all Invitation Cards. This includes our

All A2 Envelopes on Sale & A Journal/Scrapbook

Wanting to remind you guys to take advantage of the A2 Envelope sale going on right now.

The sale ends October 25th so don't let it come and go before you get a chance to stock up. You can follow this link: A2 Envelope Sale ...to our main page that lets you click on a link that will auto apply the sale.

Just finished making an album using some of our Beautiful Mohawk VIA LINEN 80 lb Cover wt Cardstock in the color SUNFLOWER. This cardstock has such a smooth quality feel to it. I luv the bit of texture it has and this Sunflower color is beautiful. Now keep in mind that the we also carry the VIA LINEN in other wonderful colors as well. Right now we have it in: Violet,Cyan,Leaf Green & Scarlet.

I created this album by using the Bind-It-All system.
1.) To create a thick/solid cover and back page I used our Kraft Chipboard
2.) I than glued the VIA LINEN Sunflower Cardstock to the kraft chipboard.
(I cut the chipboard and cardstock down to 10"L X 6"W.
For the back page I cut it 1/2 inch longer at 10.5 inches.)
3.) For the inside pages I used the Wausau Linen in Natural. & some Policy Envelopes.
4.) I embellished it with fun Pattern Paper, chipboard and other misc goodies.
5.) Bind it all or punch holes in it and use office 0 rings.
6.) I than punched some hole's on the other end of the album...attached eyelets and ran my ribbon thru it.
It took me about 2 hours to create and embellish.

This is a great album that one can use as a scrapbook or even a fab journal.
Since I plan on giving this to my niece I figured she would luv to use it as a journal I also
attached 2 of our Metallic Policy Envelopes in Quartz & Gold.
Now she can stash away little notes, tickets etc that she treasures into these envelopes for keepsakes.



also don't forget to take a look at the large selection of Core'dinations cardstock we have in stock. Some of my favorite is the Jenni Bowlin cardstock that Core'dinations came out with. Make sure to take a peek at the previous 2 post to see some great cards/layouts created with it.

Have a Blessed and Creative Day !

Pattie says...
I am the wife of a wonderful, supportive husband (he buys me scrap supplies on line- gotta love him!!) and am the mother to two fantastic kids. I have been scrapping for 12 years now- whew, how time flies!! I am part of the oh so fabulous My Little Shoebox design team and am currently teaching classes at Scrapbook U in Fremont, CA. I love all things scrapping and have been a paper lover since the first grade. I still remember my first encounter with beautiful, high quality paper- I was given a gift of a stack of thick, textured cream cardstock- it was love at first sight! I have been crafting ever since.


Ohhh how I plan on lifting this banner for my house as soon as I get some time.
She created this banner using our Kraft cardstock and our black 80# Basis.I soooo luv it !
Make sure to check out her blog for all the fab close ups she's got of this rockin banner.



For her next project she created this SWEET "Thinking of You Card"
She used our Stardream Magenta A7 folded invitation and our Curious iridescent 89# cover in Cryogen White.




Next her "Noel" card is soooo perfect for the upcoming Holidays.



and last but not least is this GORGEOUS wall hanging.

She took our Stardream Metallic 105# cover weight in Emerald and used the Martha Stewert border and corner punch.....WOW what a really spectacular project !
