Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Good morning all-

 

I am so excited and blown away about a particuliar product that I just had to share and give a testimony about it.

 

My name is Kimberley Jackson-Brown and I live in New York City,  Unlike alot of you and the areas in which you live, there are HARDLY any craft/scrapbooking/card stores near me.  The nearest store to me is Michael's and although I am greatful, they are limited in the supplies that I can get from them - for examples, nestabilities, certain inks, and most of all GOOD QUALITY PAPER.

 

Now, this brings me to the reason for this post.  I make and sell handmade notcards and invitations.  What I have been running into is that when layering the invitation, the BASE CARDSTOCK is not strong enough, and therefore the invite and or card would fall forward.  I had been reading post about Gina's Pure Luxury cardstock and how great it was....and with that said, and with my hubby's twisting of my arm, I ordered Gina's PURE LUXURY CARDSTOCK 120lb.......okay...here goes...and please note....the captial letters is NOT yelling but JUMPING UP AND DOWN in pure delight!

 

GINA! GINA! GINA! 

THIS CARDSTOCK IS ABSOLUTELY, WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, THE BEST CARDSTOCK I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS!!!!!!

 

If you ever need a spokesperson to speak about this paper, don't hesitate to call me!!! Lol!  I love the QUALITY, the FEEL, the look, and did I say the QUALITY????  AWESOME!!! AWESOME!!! OUTSTANDING paper!!!!

 

Thanks so VERY MUCH for putting out a product that is TOP OF THE LINE!!!

 

Sending you hugs from here in NYC,

Kimberley  :-)

It almost seems too smooth lol.. Does anyone experience any smearing? what about using colored pencils and watercoloring with Stampin Up Ink Refills?  I (I know you are all going to gasp) dont want to get into the copic route.

I don't have any issues with smearing but I use Memento Ink and my Copics for the most part.  Sometimes I use colored pencils and OMS and don't really use watercolors.

If I were going to use watercolor to paint in my images, I would first use Stazon to stamp the image, since it is waterproof and won't smear.  I have also used other inks, like Memento, and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Makes it easy to stay in the lines too.

Ohh embossing is a great idea Karen!  I need to remember that too!

Sometimes I have issues using border punches, it is so thick that it won't go through it.  Anyone else have this issue?  (then I do use the lesser quality card stock bought at local retail stores).

Add another jump for joy from me!  My only question is...What to do with all the other paper I have.  I don't want to use it anymore...only Gina K PL for me!

Aw, thanks so much for this wonderful testimonial! I love it so much. I am so glad you do as well!

Donna, I do too because of the thickness however, it works great with the Spellbinders border dies so I have switched to those. Use you other card stock up for punches.

I use Stazon with watercolors and it works great. No smearing at all. Same with colored pencils. Never have had a problem.

Honey I agree with you 200% her paper is one of the best qualities that I have every worked with.

I agree, have only got the white so far, but next year hope to get some mixed colours. Thanks Gina!!!

I second and third your statement. I love this website, I check it everyday like clock work, best site out there.

Thank you Gina and keep it coming. Just one request, wish you would carry cuttlebug embossing pads and C plate, craft stores carry A and B but I can't find embossing pads and C plate.
