Card Shoppe by Bazzill

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.

  8. Thanks for the video and the color chart. I have being looking for some grey card stock. I think Bazzil's grey card stock looks great.

  10. Thank you so much for this comparison! I am usually a PTI purist, but there are still some gaps in their color range that I have been longing for. Those aqua colors are just gorgeous, and I definitely agree about those fun and bright purple colors (Gummy Bear and Jellie Bean). If I could buy it in packs like PTI sells theirs, then I would definitely jump on a bunch of their colors. Buying individual sheets makes me antsy for some reason (I have to think about how much I'd use and then I nickel and dime myself ;P).

    Your card is so fun! I have always loved your style. <3

    Thank you for this chance to win as well! Have a wonderful monday. =)

  17. I only use PTI card stock except when I'm using my silhouette machine. The Bazzil card stock colors look really lovely. Would love to give them a try. Thanks for the video.

    Great card and the colors are just pretty. Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. I love these colors too. I can't wait to get some and play!

  19. I loved the video! The card stock colors look beautiful and I love that it's smooth, rather than their usual textured. Not that I mind the textured for some things, like a card base, but it does make it harder to stamp and emboss on. These would be great. I hope Bazzill does come out with a variety pack like the one they sent you. How nice of them! And how nice of you to offer one up as a giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win!

  20. Oh geez, I forgot to add that I love your card! Those colors are yummy and perfectly paired with the pears. ;o) I love the hearts you stamped on the dry-embossed circles, too.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What an amazing reference Chari, thank you! I love the look of these papers, especially since Bazzill is usually textured on one side. And the super sweet card you made to finish the post is great too!

  22. I love the color of Gumball! I usually stick with PTI card stock, but I just ordered a variety pack of the Bazzill swiss dot from amazon.com after seeing them on your blog - maybe Amazon will carry these ones too? Thanks for having the giveaway! :)

  34. What is it about paper? I just love looking at color charts and stacking up my papers in "color family" order. Most people don't understand ;-) They also don't understand subtle differences. I chuckled as a listened to your very well done video. Not many people would see the differences or describe one as cooler or warmer, etc. But when I choose paper, those are exactly the things I look for! Not all "pinks" are created equally. Thanks for the great video. It was a pleasure to watch. Your card is just too cute...GREAT color choices.

  35. Fabulous card. I love the dry embossed, stamped background. I appreciate the color comparison video...now to find that cardstock in a pack!

  65. Thanks for this sneak peek at the new Bazzill cardstocks. I just love their products, but no one around here sells it! I am fairly new to card making and scrapbooking so I have a very small supply of card stocks, so it would be wonderful to win some!
    I absolutely love your cute little Pear card!

I use solid card stock ALL the time!
