Specialty papers Plus

Hello Everyone

         Today I am going to introduce a great company called Specialty Papers Plus. I have been using there papers for a while now and I love it.

              We all think of things like, stamps, inks, punches, embossing tools, and so on. But what about the paper. Good paper is the foundation of our projects. We are always looking for good paper. Well this company has sturdy card stock for all the cards, boxes, and scrap booking pages we want to make. The  Astroparche Aged Cover card stock folds smooth and crisp. No bad edges, like splitting or white centers showing through.The Stardream Amethyst  paper is beautiful. These are the two papers I used in this project.

                I had a great time making this card. The card stock and paper take embossing powders very well,as you can see the heat gun made beautiful images. I used punches and die cuts,clean cuts, smooth edges. The distress inks work well and stamping images come out very clear and bright.

                   I used an  iridescent spray on the card stock and because it is of a great weight it absorbed the spray with no problem and the parchment paper had great textured feature.

    Specialty Papers Plus
     They have great card stock, Parchment paper, Pearlescent paper, and Metallic paper,  all in different weights, and sizes. Most of the time we are limited to US letter size 8 1/2 x 11 or 12 x 12. Here we can get bigger sizes if we want to make boxes or envelopes.            
                       Right now when you place an order you get 50 sheets of the Aged 65 lb. Cover  Gold card stock FREE. Yes it is the same paper you see here in the pictures.  Also they have a great  shipping program.  And now for the COUPON  just for visting my site type in the word "HappyHolidays" and you will get 10% off your parchment paper order.

                           I would love for you to make a project with this wonderful paper and place it on the specialty papers plus site. They have a page just for projects called  Customer Creations. To get some of this fantastic paper go to http://www.specialtypapersplus/ and check it out.
