Hi Everyone, I hope your Monday is starting out better than mine. I left my breakfast at home this morning…whoops! But I know your day is going to be better because I have something fun to share today. Lawn Fawn teamed up with the Bazzill Matchmaker program to bring you a list of Bazzill card stock colors that match the Lawn Fawn Bright Side paper line. You can check that out HERE. Bazzill also has a new card stock line and was kind enough to send me a variety pack of their new Card Shoppe card stock to play with. It’s 100lb card stock with a smooth finish and after playing with it and making a few things I can say from experience it is great for card making! It comes in 8.5″ x 11″ sheets in 28 colors with fun candy themed names.
Because I know I have a lot of card making bloggy friends that have looked for different alternatives for card stock I did a video comparing the colors of this line to Papertrey ink colors as well as some Hero Hues layering paper colors. The video is kind of long so if you aren’t interest in color comparison then feel free to skip it. 🙂
Here is the color chart from Bazzill, The colors on this image look closer to me than the one that came printed in my package so this is a good reference.
I made a few cards using this new card stock and I really like it. I will be sharing them this week on the blog starting today. On this one I tried some die cutting and dry embossing and it worked wonderfully.
Now for the fun part…Bazzill not only sent me a pack of Card Shoppe paper to play with but they also sent me a pack to give away! Leave a comment on this post by 5:00 EST on Friday May 11 and I will pick one person to win this fabulous pack of paper.
Also if anyone comes across a place to buy it online please let me know. I did find it at scrapbook.com available for purchase by individual sheets.
