The NEW Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine from Stampin’ Up! is now available and it’s ADORABLE!!!!

Die-cutting and embossing are great ways to take your cards and other crafty projects from nice to WOW!!

Stampin’ Up!’s new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines are now available in Standard and Mini sizes.

What’s the difference? The size! Both machines fold up nicely for easy storage, but not all folders and dies will fit through the smaller mini machine.

If you’re just getting started with die-cutting and embossing, have a smaller budget or want a machine to take on the go, then the mini machine is perfect.

Order Your MINI Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Here!

If you want to be able to use all kinds of different embossing folders and dies then you’ll want to go with the standard size. This is the one that I use all the time.

Order Your Standard Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Here! 

Both machines come with all the plates you need to get started.

BONUS! When you purchase either machine from me, you’ll get to take my Step Up Your Cards with Die-Cutting & Embossing Class for FREE! 

There’s a new white card stock in town! Whisper White has been around since the beginning of time (well, at least as long as I’ve been around!), but due to an unfortunate paper mill closing, Whisper White is being replaced with… Basic White.

I’m a little underwhelmed by the name, but so far I’ve found the card stock to be just as fabulous as Whisper White.

(Basic White at the top vs Whisper White at the bottom of the photo)

I do know that the card stock you use can have a BIG effect on the images you stamp, as soon as I got my hands on some of the new Basic White card stock I did some experimenting to see how it stacked up against Whisper White.

Basic White vs Whisper White

  • They feel the same to me.
  • The Basic White looks more white.
  • As far as I can tell, there’s no difference in the result of my stamped images. I tried both bold stamps and detailed stamps and they all looked the same to me. (Note: 2 days later the heart on my Whisper White paper had faded a little bit. It was a darker color on the new Basic White. I like that!)
  • When you stamp with a Stampin’ Up! ink pad (I used Shaded Spruce) and color with a blender pen it seems to work the same on both. I just pulled the color of the ink from the detailed leaves into the insides to give them a little extra color.
  • There is a slight difference when you’re coloring. I don’t really like to color, so I don’t much care about this.
  • Stampin’ Blends (Stampin’ Up!’s alcohol markers) seem to soak into the older Whisper White more so the same colors look darker on the new Basic White. This might be a good thing? Again, not really a coloring person so my techniques are not the best and you might get different (better) results.
  • Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens are a little bit different too. I think Whisper White was a little bit smoother because the pencil seemed to glide a bit easier on the Whisper White than the Basic White, but overall my end results look about the same. Again, not a coloring person here so if you love to color I would recommend you try it yourself.
As with anything NEW there might be a bit of an adjustment and of course, as I create with the new Basic White I’ll let you know if I come up with any tips or tricks to help you out.

Here’s everything that comes in Basic White.
