So Glossy Card

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about creating something: So Glossy.

Gloss gel medium and a stencil is one of my all time favorite combos. Ah, but that isn't all that shines here in my studio! From glossy accents to clear embossing powder, gloss cardstock to shiny domed embellishments there is a lot of gloss power around here. This week we encourage you to find some glossy product and let it inspire your ceration.

I crazy about the transparent texture paste. Inspired by Tim's tag of September 2015 I made this card for my sister's birthday. I had a left over piece saved from when I was doing the background for the September tag. Love that I've used it as a background for this card.


Since the theme is glossy, I've used as many glossy materials as possible. Starting with the Glossy paper. Then I went in with the Gloss Texture Paste and the Honeycomb stencil to create texture and of course gloss.

A transparent sheet is super glossy. So I stamped on that with StazOn and the circle of the Trust the magic stamp set. The Happy Birthday of the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Balloons stamp set. I used embossing powder to create more gloss.


To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
