Stamp-Off Product Challenge

Stamp-Off Product Challenge

It’s Stamp-Off Friday, and this time, our challenge is to use a product – specifically, Glossy White Cardstock.

My Stampin’ Up! demonstrator friends and I were thrilled when we saw Glossy White Cardstock in the new Annual Catalog. There are so many fun techniques you can do with this cardstock. I showed one last week in our Framelits/Thinlits challenge. If you missed it, you can see it here.

One of my favorite things to do with Glossy White Cardstock is ink resist. There are so many “resist” techniques, and they all work beautifully on Glossy White. I chose the White Crayon Resist for this week’s challenge.

Stampin' Up!, Touches of Texture, You've Got This

Simply stamp an open image on Glossy White in a permanent ink. I used Jet Black Stazon for this, because I think Stazon is the best ink for glossy paper. You can also use Basic Black Archival Ink, though.  Then select some areas and color them with a white crayon. I colored all the flowers and leaves in the floral image in the Touches of Texure stamp set, plus the white spaces of the bee. The last step is to sponge ink over the paper. Easy! I used a sponge brayer with Marina Mist Classic Ink, but a Stampin’ Sponge will work as well.

After I sponged the ink with this technique, I buffed the cardstock with a towel. Everything colored with the crayon will remain white. I added a little color to the bee and leaves with Stampin’ Write Markers, then added the sentiment from You’ve Got This.

I really like the colors in the layers on this card. It looks a little like ice cream sherbet, don’t you think? The card is Peekaboo Peach and the next layer is Lemon Lime Twist. I also added some Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding. It’s so fun and adds a whimsical touch. I have to say, though, I love all the ribbon in this year’s catalog.

Now – head over to Jackie’s and Susan’s blogs to see what they’ve created for you. I always love to see their projects. I’m looking forward to adding more techniques to my repertoire!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
