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 !


I want to show you some quick and easy tags I made using our Currency Cardstock.
Our Currency comes in Silver and Gold.


I used the silver in these tags for the dove I cut out using a diecutter. If you want to know more on how to make these you can head over to our site where we now give free tutorials and are uploading new ones regularly.





Check out more of our latest and GREATEST upload to the store.

More Beauties from Jennie Thompson

I knew there was a reason why I love Photography. Pictures have so much power. The power to remind us, the power to move us, the power to allow us to express ourselves, and so much more.
As soon as I saw this picture and layout that Jennie made I was so moved by it!
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!
In this layout Jennie used our:


Once again Jennie thank you for your Fabulous work !


Have a Blessed and Creative Day ! ♥
