Today's subject is paper. There are so many types of paper that I could talk about paper for many blogs. But I am just going to mention a few of the many types out there because I don't want this to be overwhelming.
I'll start with the ones that you can purchase from Stampin' Up! at my online store.
Background papers:Stampin' Up! calls theirs Designer Series Papers and they come in color coordinated stacks that make cardmaking and scrapbooking so much easier!

I don't use this as the card base, I use it as a layer on cards.
White Vellum Cardstock:
- use brads that go through the vellum and the base layer.
- use a glue dot between the vellum and base layer and then cover it with something on the top layer to hide the glue dot...for example a button.
- use snail tape to attach it to the base layer and then hide the tape with ribbon and/or bows.
- attach it to the back of the card by creating a tab that folds around to the back side and adhering it there.

This isn't even all of the specialty papers that Stampin' Up! carries, but these are the ones that I use the most. Probably in discussing certain techniques later on in Wednesday 101 posts I will share some more papers with you.
