Glossy Dream Come True

September 25th, 2008

Just a quick post to share a fun and simple card I made while playing with my new Scor-It Board.  You can read my review of the Scor-it on the SCS Product Focus Page (click here).



It was a little hard to photograph since the main panel is glossy white cardstock.  When I first started stamping years ago, glossy cardstock was one my favorite things.  I don’t use it all that often anymore, but I almost always have fun with it when I do decide to pull it out.  This card was inspired by the Michael Strong video on the Scor-It website.  I used to always love it when Michael Strong did a demo on the Carol Duvall show, so I was excited to watch his video presentation.  He showed scoring a frame on cardstock painted with acrylic paints and it looked very cool.  I didn’t have time for paints so I decided to see what the effect would be on glossy cardstock and I think it turned out quite striking.


After scoring 2 lines all around my glossy panel I completely masked the outside edges with Eclipse Masking Tape from eclectic Paperie, and then I brayered the center section with Cotton Candy Spectrum ink (retired SU).  Then it was just a matter of stamping the bird and branches from Always and the sentiment from Cute Converse.  I added some teensy tiny square pink rhinestones and matted the panel on black and then a Rose Red base.  Super duper simple!


Time for me to go to work so I gotta run.  Thanks for stopping by!
