Hi there stampers! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday with family and friends. This week’s TGIF Challenge features a product spotlight challenge using Glossy Cardstock. I knew immediately the technique I wanted to use for this challenge along with the beautiful new stamp set from the 2019 SU Occasions Catalog called Flowering Desert.
I started with a panel of Glossy Cardstock and stamped the cactus image all over the panel with Versamark ink. I then heat set the images with my Heat Tool. After making sure all the images were dry, I rubbed my Granny Apple Green ink pad over the panel. The dried Versamark ink resists the ink and gives a beautiful effect on Glossy Cardstock. I used a rag to wipe off any access ink on the panel and added ink splatters of Frost White Shimmer Paint to the panel.
I then stamped the awesome sentiment from the same Flowering Desert stamp set in Versamark ink onto some Vellum and heat set with Gold Emboss’ Powder. I then cut out the sentiment using the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits and also cut out a size bigger from Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I punched out some flowers using the Bitty Blossoms Punch from Mango Melody cardstock and added a rhinestone to the center. I used dimensionals to hold some Gold Metallic Thread to the back of the sentiment and added to the glossy panel. The entire panel was adhered to an A2 top folding card base made from Flirty Flamingo.
There are so many fun techniques you can do with Glossy cardstock so play along with us this week and show us your favorite technique! The new 2019 SU Occasions Catalog goes live on January 3, 2019 for customers to order and if you need help deciding, you can check out my two sneak peek videos on my YouTube Channel HERE.
