Prima Flower Giveaway x 2!

It's been long overdue as I said I would have a blog giveaway when I hit 100 followers. Well, I've been doing some house cleaning in my art room and decided it's time for my Prima flower collection to find a new home as I NEVER use them. I will confess I mainly bought them for the cute containers (which I'm keeping). I had enough Prima flowers to fill two boxes, so TWO lucky people will get a prize!

Prima prize box #1


Prima prize box #2


For a chance to win all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post. What I want to know is where can a girl find some heavy weight white cardstock to buy? The only white I have ever owned is Stampin' Up! and it doesn't hold up well for card bases or for copic coloring. So leave me your suggestions and I will pick to random winners by Wednesday, November 9th.


Thanks for stopping by and I'm looking forward to giving these flowers a new home :)

  5. Hi Julie :) I'm not sure I can help you with your paper from over here, but I have heard a lot of people give the Neenah paper the thumbs up for copic colouring ;)

  8. Yummy flowers...thanks for a chance to win.
    I heard PTI white paper is good...never used it thou. I tried the cream and other colors...they are good. For copics the best is X-press it (wonderful blending) but Neenah solar white is also good (bit cheaper and good for fine images).

  9. OHHH! What beautiful flowers---I wish I could share which cardstock to use. I don't copic--but I've been wanting to. It's good to know what other crafters use! TFS:)

  10. For colouring I'm not helpful, since I don't have copics, but I have heard that Gina K has good heavyweight papers.
    For card bases, I use 110 lb white from Staples. Since I use so much patterned paper, it makes more sense for me to use the same for all my card bases.
    I noticed that Carsand Mosher started carrying Copics last time I was in Truro - maybe they have a paper recommendation?
    And congrats on over 100 followers :)

  11. I use 110 lb for card backs.....I get it at WalMart. I use white as nearly all the cards I do are for the troops to send home & I keep the inside blank as their words are better than anything I can stamp.

  12. That is a super good question! I've bought some from Wal-Mart and it's good, but it ends up scrapping off if I use too many Copic colors (I'm talking like 5 layers of color). I have used SU! for years, as well, but I don't like that it's so glossy. I've decided to try Paper Trey Ink's papers, but haven't gotten any yet, so I can't say anything about it. Congrats on the followers!!! :)

  13. like most suggestions... i would go with Micheals when they have it 2 or 3 for the price of 1 :)

  14. Cool giveaway. I actually LOVE PaperTrey Ink white cardstock. It is 110 lb and around $6 for 40 sheets. I've used it with my Copics and not been disappointed even when applying lots of layers of color. Hugs- Glora me(at)glorajean(dot)com

  15. I personally LOVE to shop at my local University Art shop. They sell YUMMY heavyweight white cardstock in 3'x4' sheets. Yes. You read that correctly. It is the yummiest paper. They cut mine into 12" strips so it will fit in my cutter. If you don't have one of these shops, try a REALLY upscale stationers. I watercolor on it, stamp on it, and love how it never pills or buckles.

  16. Well, aren't you generous! I don't need the flowers but I did want to tell you that my favorite heavy white card stock is PTI's Stamper's Select white. It is much heavier than SU's white and takes Copic and Prismacolor/Gamsol really well. Stamping in black (I use Memento Tuxedo Black) works really well, too. Good luck!

  17. I usually buy the 110 lb white card stock at Staples, and find it works quite well. Copics will bleed thought it though so if I want to do a OLC with Copic colouring I LOVE the stuff that Gina K sells (Pure Luxury, I think it's called). The shipping to Canada is way less through Gina K than from Papertrey Ink. :-)
    Cheers, Karen

  19. I picked up some from The Scrapbooking Cottage awhile back and although it's designed for coloring with Copic, I find that I like the SU! Whisper White better since it's smoother... good luck finding the perfect paper, let us know when you do! :)

  20. I usually use walmart for my white because it's cheap, I like SU as well and have heard that Papertrey ink has really good paper goo! Good luck!
