First Look: Basic White, Tranquil Tidings and Mini Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine

This is the project I made on my Facebook Live video this week.  You can catch the replay on YouTube or Facebook.  You can also subscribe to my YouTube Channel and request to be notified on my Facebook Page when I go live.

I had several items I was trying to choose between to feature in this video. As I promised in this post, I wanted to do a comparison between the new Basic White cardstock products. I also wanted to show off the new Tranquil Thoughts bundle and my new Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (a.k.a. my “Baby Boss”). So, in the end I decided to go ahead and show all three!  Here’s the result:


I CASE’d (Copy and Share Everything) a sample card from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue. I did change a few elements from the catty card…I don’t have the Dandy Laser-Cut paper they used for the background element, so I subbed a retired product.  I also used the Label Me Fancy Punch instead of the die.  

I forgot to add any embellishments during the video, but I did add some Magenta Madness 2020-2033 InColor Enamel Dots to a few of the flowers, along with some Flirty Flamingo ones that I had hanging around from a very old Paper Pumpkin kit.

Here are my takeaways from today’s play:

  • Basic White is a bit whiter than Whisper White, and stamps beautifully.  Buy and use without hesitation!
  • Tranquil Thoughts is a lovely bundle that will come into its own as people move past the big suites in the Mini Catalogue.
  • The “Baby Boss” is fun and cute…but don’t rely on it to be your primary die-cutting and embossing machine, because too many products won’t fit in it.

Here’s what I used to make this card…you can order by clicking on any of the pictures or this link.
