WorldWin Papers CHA Peeky!

Hello, Bloggers! I am sure everyone is excited about the upcoming Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show (CHA) and all the NEW products that will soon appear on store shelves! WorldWin Papers will have a booth at the show...and I will have some projects displayed. I am giving you a sneaky peeky at one project!

It is "time" to see some new cardstock! {wink wink}

WorldWin is releasing some new colors of ColorMates Smooth and Silky, plus they are promoting the Twist collection, and they have added to the Kraft collection!

I created this card using the NEW Flag Blue ColorMates Smooth and Silky. I then embossed the NEW Off White ColorMates Smooth and Silky and rubbed it with some gray ink. Look how great the blue cardstock looks when stamped with white ink! I stamped a clock image and cut it out with a die template. (Ok, confession time...I love cardstock! But I have a hard time using ONLY cardstock. But printed paper! GASP!)

I cut the clock face and hands from Silver Twist. Twist is like a cardstock version of mulberry paper! Back in the day we used to adhere mulberry paper to cardstock to make it thick enough to die cut or emboss. This new stuff....already IS cardstock! Love it! 

That fantastic flower was made from the NEW 68# kraft paper! Once you ink and spray this thinner cardstock, it reacts a like thick tissue paper! It is amazing to work with! It is a a bit thicker than computer paper, but it turns...stiff when you get it wet, especially if you dry it with a heat tool. Then you can shape it and fuss with it. I had a blast. This flower is really a "left over" from another be seen later!

Here is a peek at the inside of the card. I stamped with white ink directly on the card base.

I hope that you enjoy the design peeks coming up the next few weeks. Check the WW Blog to see what the team has been working on! If you are at CHA, please stop by and visit the WorldWin Papers booth!
