So Long, Farewell


As 2020 comes to a close, I wanted to thank you for your support.  After more than a decade as a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I have decided to resign.  This has been a tough year for all of us and I feel that the economy will be struggling for the next several years as it tries to bounce back from Covid.  Thank you for being part of my crafting journey.  I wish you health, happiness, and craftiness in the year ahead.

No More Whisper White Cardstock


Here is the update from Stampin' Up:

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

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. We know preorder is a time for you to purchase new items to prepare for the upcoming months of your business so we wanted to give you this information before Whisper White products sell out and before all Basic White products are fully ready so you can include it in your business planning. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3" x 3" (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2" x 11" Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2" x 11" Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.
