Default glossy paper ideas

I am doing a Christmas card class in which we make 4 cards using 1/2 sheet of glossy paper stamped and cut up. I would like to have a few different techniques for them to choose from to use on the glossy paper.

Could you please share your ideas of techniques using glossy paper?

Thank you in advance for sharing,
Joy

Something I learned at a convention is to take the Stampin' Spots in 3-4 different colors and "squish" them onto the glossy paper. When you have all the colors you want squished on the glossy paper, take a Kleenex and wipe as much off as you can. Where you "squished" the spots will be darker and then when you tissued off the excess ink, it will color in the areas not "squished". I don't know if this makes sense or not. Hope so. Then I take Staz-On in Black and stamp my images. Makes interesting background.

There are lots of things you can do with glossy cardstock.

faux linen-take sand paper to the cs, sand left to right , top to bottom, take an inked sponge and rub it all over cs

smackin' accetate-on a piece of accetate(overhead transparency) scribble with your markers, spray with water or alcohol and then smack your cardstock on to it, pull it off fast, let dry.

You can also use a brayer and apply ink to the cardstock, I haven't done this yet.

Default glossy paper ideas

Glossy Card Stock Tip Sheet





That is a little older version . . . there are now 34 ideas for using
the
glossy. Here's the newer more complete sheet.

Over 30 Uses for Glossy Card Stock . . .
Oh the Joy it brings when you use it!

By Colleen Kidder


Almost “hidden�, you might miss the Glossy card stock that is
found on page
204 of the Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog. Be sure you don’t
pass over
this! Just a quick glance below will show you that there is oh, so
much more
to do with glossy card stock than you might first have suspected. You
can
purchase Glossy card stock in 8-1/2 x 11 sheets of 25 for only $4.95
and that
will be the best $4.95 you ever spend! It has a high glossy sheen on
one side
and a matte finish on the opposite side and this is nice, thick card
stock
people. I absolutely love Glossy card stock and feel everyone should
have some
sheets of their own to try out some of these fun and awe-inspiring
techniques listed below.

1. You can use it just like any other card stock for creating a card.
Just
be careful when stamping so it doesn't smear. I like using glossy for
just
plain stamping once in a while, no tricks, no gimmicks. Bold, bright
colors look
awesome when stamped on this card stock! The colors come out even
brighter
on glossy and it makes a card look a little more professionally done.

2. I also love layering a piece of glossy cardstock onto a piece of
colored
cardstock and then onto our standard US white. It really sets off the
glossy
cardstock and adds a look of elegance.

3. Want a professional looking card? Use your SU! Marvelous Markers to
color
in an image that you’ve stamped on the glossy card stock.

4. Glossy card stock is great for backgrounds and perfect paper for
using
your brayer! Use your brayer with a Spectrum pad and run it repeatedly
over the
glossy paper - you'll end up with a multicolored background. Repeated
rolling really blends the colors, unlike with the standard UltraSmooth
cardstock
where you end up with definite color stripes.

5. Use this paper for the Versamark resist technique. Stamp image onto
glossy cardstock using the Versamark pad. Then brayer over the image.
(I prefer
Spectrum pads but solid colors work just as well). The Versamark areas
will
resist the ink and show through. I find, though, that I have to wipe
with a
kleenex soon after I brayer or the brayer'd ink will bleed into my
versamark'd
images. Or you can use your heat gun to dry the Versamark area. When
dry, then
brayer over it. the Versamark image will stand out beautifully! Great
way to
make a "Little Shapes" moon background for a "Lovely as a Tree"
foreground.

6. Use the VersaMark resist technique as listed above but this time
instead
of using your brayer to add color use the Pure Color Pencils and color
right
over the top of the image. I usually do this for a background instead
of my
main image.

7. Here's another fun technique that is off the beatin' path (sort of
speak)
. . . Try the Soot Stamping Technique using glossy. Then turn the
flame of
an oil lamp up and wave the card front over the top . . . Where the
black
smoke is. (Be sure to get the kind of oil that is NOT smokeless . . .
You want
the smoke for this technique.) Soot will begin to form on the glossy
surface.
You then take a clean rubber stamp and stamp into the soot. The stamp
will
remove the soot from the surface (negative soot stamping.) Or you may
choose to
apply ink over the top of the soot (positive soot stamping.) Or do a
combination of both like my card here indicates. You will need to seal
this when
completed with either Krylon workable fixative, an acrylic spray or
some aerosol
hairsprays will work too. Be careful not to touch the soot until after
you
have sealed it or you'll end up leaving your fingerprints behind. Kick
it up a
notch and do the Rainbow Soot Technique by using the brayer to first
create
a background color. Then just follow the same directions as before
except
this time when you stamp your color will show through. Cool!!

8. Another great background is Smudging or the "Twist and Drag"
technique.
Choose a "solid" style stamp that is simplistic in design such as one
that is
a squiggle, or confetti, or thick dots. Ink your stamp of choice with
a light
color of ink. Then twist it (or drag it) onto your glossy cardstock.
Repeat
a few times to create a one-of-a-kind background. You can then clean
your
stamp and re-ink with a coordinating color (use your color wheel) and
repeat the
"twist and drag" or smudging method to create a two-tone pattern. You
can
also create your own stamp tool for this technique using scraps of
rubber from
your cut stamps. A really cool pattern is to cut nine long, skinny
triangles
and place them points together in a circle on your wood block (it will
sort
of resemble a pinwheel). The pattern this tool creates is awesome.
Give it a
try!

9. A favorite of mine is the Joseph's coat technique. Brayer with a
spectrum
pad, covering the entire area of your card. Let set for a couple
minutes to
be sure it is dry. Use your embossing buddy over this rainbow
cardstock and
then emboss your stamped image using the VersaMark pad and clear
embossing
powder. (Tip: Use bolder stamps to really get the full effects of this
technique.) Then ink your brayer with Black or Navy (the darker the
better) and cover
the entire card again with this new color. Let the overcoat of ink
dry, then
buff the card with a paper towel to remove excess ink. What happens is
that
your K-pad color will shine through. Just think of a great landscape
card
with stars in the sky and trees) WOW!! A rainbow image . . . named
after
"Joseph's Coat of Many Colors".

10. Want a spirited way to use glossy card stock? Try the Batik
Technique.
Simply stamp your image using Versamark and emboss with clear
embossing
powder. Let cool. Then gently wad paper into a ball or you could fold
it into a
small square for a different look. Unfold it and smooth it out. It
will have
crease marks where the EP has cracked. Place cardstock on a towel and
mist with
water so the paper is very damp. Next ink your brayer with a Spectrum,
pad
roll across the paper. The image will stay white while the ink will
seep into
cracks and the rest of the paper will have a batik look. Like far out
man!

11. Polished stone background with assorted reinkers, alcohol, and
Gold/Silver Krylon or Zig Leafing Pens. I prefer to use a wood block
that has felt on
it instead of a cotton ball. I like the veining this provides. Spray
alcohol
on the felt (use a sample size hairspray bottle). Moisten the pad with
at
least 6 sprays, but don't soak it. Then dot your felt with 3 to 4
drops re-inker
on one side of the damp felt. Then dot 3 to 4 drops of another color
on the
other side. Keep the different colors separate, but not too far apart.
Shake
your leafing pen and press the tip down on your glossy cardstock
letting the
ink puddle out. Make 3 to 4 little globs per quarter sheet. QUICKLY
"slam"
your felt block on top of the blobs of pen. Strike the paper over and
over,
making the leafing ink "float" in the alcohol dye. If the leafing ink
doesn't
"float" but dries as spots, you didn't use enough alcohol. Try again.
You want
the colors to overlap and blend. If you "work" the ink too much, it
can
start to look muddy, but you want to cover the surface of the paper.
After
"whacking" you can gently twist your felt pad of a more blended look.
Let the piece
dry before touching. You can move it by gripping the edge of the
paper. I
like to wait at least 24 hours before stamping on it.

12. The Heated Pearls technique also use glossy card stock and is fun
and
easy to do. You just need to turn the glossy card stock to black
glossy card
stock by using your black pad and a brayer. (Or instead of black
select another
dark color.) Then you'll need Pearl Ex, white glue (such as Elmers or
Aileen
Tacky Glue), a stipple brush, and your heat gun. Cut the cardstock
into
quarters. Put a blob of glue in the middle of a piece. Spread it all
over the
piece with the stipple brush. Be sure to cover it completely. Sprinkle
some
Pearl Ex (you can use two complimentary colors of PE) on top of the
stippled
glue, working the PE into the glue with the stipple brush. When done,
put the
brush into water, so the glue won't dry up on the brush. Next take your
heat
gun and start running it over the glue/PE mixture. Watch it bubble up!
Now use
this as a background for your favorite set. I have tried this with Red
Glossy
(made with White Glossy and my red Staz On pad) and it works well
also. This
produces very elegant backgrounds.

13. Crayon Resist is a great way to use Glossy paper to add white
highlights
to whimsical stamps or those with detailed images. Stamp your design
onto
glossy card stock. Allow image to dry (if you don’t want to wait
just use the
Staz On pads.) Then use a crayon or one of the SU! Metallic Pencils to
mark
areas where you want to highlight (the white card stock will show
through.) Be
sure to apply heavy lines so they will show up well on the finished
piece.
Then just use your selected inks to apply ink with sponge or brayer.
Allow ink
to dry. Using a piece of tissue or paper towel, gently rub in small
circles
over the areas where you applied the crayon. This will remove the ink
and
create the resist look.

14. Glossy card stock is perfect for Dry Embossing. Cut cardstock into
a
small square and then dry emboss an image (try the Snowflake classy
brass
template). Then use your brayer and a LIGHT TOUCH to apply color to
your image. I
have found it adds depth to apply several colors. For instance, with
the
snowflake template I use Bliss Blue and Almost Amethyst. When you
color your dry
embossed image this way you will still have an edge of white card stock
that
will show through.

15. Try doing the Alcohol Spray Technique on Glossy Paper. Place
regular
rubbing alcohol in a little spray bottle. Select a bolder image stamp
and ink it
up (you may even want to do this using the markers and create a sort
of
rainbow look on the image or select color variances from the same
color family
such as green galore, glorious green, forest foliage or baroque
burgundy, real
red, rose red. Just be sure the whole surface is covered. Then spray
the
stamp with the alcohol mister and stamp it on the glossy card stock!
When you
spray the alcohol it must be a very fine mist and hold the stamp
further away
from the sprayer. With this technique each time you reink, spritz and
stamp
down will turn out a little different than the time before which
provides a
very unique look.

16. Shaving Cream Technique also uses glossy paper (to provide the
best
results). This technique for making unique backgrounds for your
special cards is
a little messy so I recommend wearing thin rubber gloves and working
in the
kitchen on newspaper. Spread the bottom of a shallow 9 X 12 pan with a
layer
of shaving cream (the cheap .99 cent stuff). Spread it out with a
spatula to
about 3/4� thick in the bottom of the pan. Take a couple of
coordinating
colors (such as Mellow Moss and Pale Plum) of re-inkers and put a
couple drops in
a random pattern all over the shaving cream. Just a couple drops to
start
with. You can always add a few more drops. Take something such as a
marker,
pencil or toothpick or a pop sickle stick to swirl the shaving cream
around
until you get the look you want. Depending on what you choose to use
you will get
different size swirls. This will give a marbling effect on finished
product.
Now press a piece of white cardstock (1/4 sheet is easier to work
with) face
down into the shaving cream from the center out. Press it to be sure
the
whole surface is touching. Gently peel the card stock up and scrape
off the
extra shaving cream with a spatula or wipe off with a paper towel. Dry
off the
extra bits with a dark colored towel or a clean paper towel. The
shaving cream
will come off the card stock, but the ink pattern will remain. Don’t
be
afraid of smearing the ink. It will stay where it originally touched
the paper.
You now have an awesome background, each one a little different from
the next.
You can repeat until you don’t like the design you get. When it is
dry, the
surface is soft, almost velvety to the touch (and it smells nice too.)

17. To create fun backgrounds (or foregrounds) for your summer
projects try
using the Glossy paper for the Bubble Background Technique. Place 3-4
Tablespoons of dish washing soap and a cup of tap water in a large
bowl. Add 10-15
drops of desired color of Stampin Up! refill ink. Use a wisk to create
froth
and pour this mixture onto a tray. Using a drinking straw, blow
lightly while
stirring the mixture so that you form slightly larger bubbles. You do
NOT
want huge bubbles as you won't be able to fit them on a standard size
card
front. After bubbles are formed, spritz the top of them with reinker
that has
been diluted with water and put into a travel-sized pump spray bottle.
(This
will help make the bubbles more defined.) Then lightly place a sheet
of Glossy
Cardstock onto the bubbles without actually dropping it into the
solution.
Remove paper and place right side up on paper towels and allow to dry.
To speed
the process you can use another paper towel to blot dry but DO NOT rub
or you
will disturb the bubble pattern. For more versatility select other
colors
besides blue or send the card stock back through a second time but
this time
select a different color from the first.

18. Salt Backgrounds are perfect for Glossy card stock. Brayer color
onto
the glossy card stock using any dye ink pad and then mist with water
spritzer.
Sprinkle on salt. You can use any kind . . .sea salt, table, kosher,
Epsom .
. . and all will provide a little different look to your finished
project. My
personal favorite is sea salt. I think it provides the best results.
If
necessary, spray more water on after you apply the salt. Play around
with this to
see what look you like best. You must allow this to dry. Speeding up
the
process with the heat gun will sort of work but air drying gives the
best
effects. When dry, brush the salt off. The salt will "remove" or
lighten the dye
ink and you'll have a beautiful one-of-a-kind background for your
stamped
artwork.
NOTE: You can save the salt you scrapped off for shaker cards. It will
be
"dyed" the color of your ink.

19. Kooshball Background on Glossy card stock is just a downright fun
technique! It makes a nice speckled background. You just dab the Koosh
Ball into
the ink pad, then "stamp" it on the glossy card stock however you
want. You can
keep adding color until you get it the way you like it. Then, just
rinse
under running water, pat dry with a towel and it's ready for your next
color. S
IMPLE!

20. Marble Technique. Try using plain ol' marbles to make wonderful
backgrounds on glossy card stock. The marble technique is so easy that
most children
do it as toddlers. (Though they usually use little dabs of paint in
place of
ink.) So, if children can do it at 2, maybe we can do it as adults,
right?
Put your cardstock in a small box and ink up the marbles, and put them
in the
box too. Then tip the box from side to side, causing the marbles to
roll
randomly on the card stock.

21. Wax Paper Resist Backgrounds (for a Tye-Dye look). This technique
is
great for a quick and colorful background. You need glossy card stock,
wax paper
(just bigger than the paper), and an iron. Crumble up the wax paper
and then
set between the glossy sides of the glossy paper. Take an iron at
medium
heat and iron over the paper for between 10 and 30 seconds. When
you're done,
take one of the glossy sheets and cover with ink. Then use a brayer on
a
rainbow pad. You can also use a sponge or the ink pad itself, or any
other way you
can think to put the ink on the paper. The ink brings out some
wonderful
designs. The different ways that you fold the wax paper bring out
wonderful
designs. You don't always have to crumble the paper either. Just play
with the
wax paper and see what beautiful images arise.

22. Bleeding Tissue Paper. This is a fun and easy technique for making
quick
backgrounds for your cards, collages, etc. It involves wetting tissue
paper
that bleeds its color onto white glossy paper for beautiful
backgrounds. My
favorite kind of tissue paper to use for this can be found at
Michael's and
says "Spectra" on it. (Don't get the metallic Spectra tissue, it does
not
bleed; get the regular colors which have yellow, blue, purple, orange,
pink, and
other colors in the package.) Lay your white glossy cardstock face up
and
spray with water. Randomly tear your tissue in the colors you want and
place on
wet cardstock. Place another sheet of white glossy cardstock face down
on top
of the tissue (this way you can make two sheets of background paper at
one
time). Lay a book or other heavy object on top of these sheets and let
sit so
the wet paper won't curl. When dry, peel off the tissue and reveal your
beautiful background that you can use to stamp on, emboss on, use for
layering or
whatever you'd like. If you can’t find the “Spectra� tissue
paper don’t
worry. . . Make your own. Just brayer any of the SU! dye ink colors
(including
any of the Spectrum pads) over white tissue paper. Crumble up the
tissue paper
and then smooth out. Place the smoothed out tissue paper on top of a
piece
of glossy cards stock. Then spritz with water and place a second piece
of
glossy paper, shiny side down on top of that. Sort of making a
sandwich with the
white tissue inside. Press firmly to transfer color. Unsandwich and
allow to
dry.

23. Stampin' Spots backgrounds. Select three or four colors of
Stampin'
Spots: one light color, two medium-value colors, and one dark accent
color. Color
combinations can give fascinating results that may turn out
differently than
you imagine. Arrange the Stampin' Spots near you lined up from
lightest to
darkest color. This is the order or sequence that you will be using
them.
Place the card stock glossy side face up, on a piece of scrap paper.
Have a
paper towel, folded to several thicknesses and ready to use. Open the
light color
pad and hold it upside down by its tray. As you begin to work keep in
mind
that stamping full on the pad produces squares while stamping the
corners will
produce triangles, stamping with the sides produces bars, etc. You'll
be
doing a direct-to-paper application. Press the pad face down onto the
glossy
paper five to seven times. (I work in odd numbers and sort of in a
triangle
shape around the card stock.) This will produce blocks of color.
Immediately smud
ge the color using paper towel. Repeat process using the next color.
You may
"stamp" the pad over some of the light color. Again use paper towel to
blend
and smudge ink. Don't be concerned with white spaces. "Stamp" the pad
of the
next medium color over the card. Repeat process this time with the
dark color
pad. Work to fill a balance in the card space. Without delay, wipe the
colors from the card again. The card is now finished. The colors will
mellow a bit
as the ink fully dries. To take this one step further spritz the
entire card
front with a water bottle and use the paper towel to blot. Some color
will
be removed, some color will blend and others might even darken. It's
fun to
see what will happen. If you still aren't done playing try sprinkling
on some
salt as listed above. Oh, just color me beautiful with backgrounds.

24. Emboss Resist on Glossy. This is a great way to combine those
bolder
stamps and glossy paper to yield awesome results. Use your Embossing
Buddy on
the glossy card stock before you begin. With the VersaMark pad stamp
your image
on glossy card stock. Sprinkle clear embossing powder over the clear
inked
stamped image and heat it. You now have a subtle stamped image. Next
use your
sponges to apply as much (or as little) color as you would like. This
will
make the stamped image seem to pop right off the card.

25. Spin Art Backgrounds. Use quarter sheet of glossy cardstock in a
spin
art machine. Use double stick tape to hold card down onto mechanism.
While
paper is spinning, add drops of re-inker onto paper. Let spin for a
few minutes
and then shut off. Now you have an awesome background to stamp on (and
it made
you feel like you were 10 again!)

26. Make your own postcards. Place the card stock in a printer and
type your
note to a friend. Print it off on the NON-GLOSSY side, lined up in
columns
so that you can cut the cardstock in fourths and have four postcards.
Then
stamp on the glossy side.

27. Make a stationary holder. Here's a cute idea. Versamark a
background
design on the glossy - full sheet. (Do the Versamark Resist technique
in #5.)
Then fold about 2 inches up along a long side (11" side) towards the
non-glossy
side. Now fold this in half like a book. Open the "book" back up and
cut out
a little "V" in the center fold where you made the 2" pocket - to make
it
look professional. Now you have a stationary holder that will hold
stamped
paper on one side and envelopes on the other. Close with a ribbon (you
can punch
holes to keep the ribbon secure.)

28. Glossy card stock is also great for making all our cut little
baskets,
boxes and pouches.
Have fun with this paper!

29. Rubber Cement Resist Technique.
Standard Resist: Start with glossy cardstock. Pick out 3 colors of dye
ink.
Drizzle rubber cement directly on the cardstock (do this in a
well-ventilated
area). Let dry. Using your brayer, apply your first ink color (start
with
lightest color). Let dry. Drizzle more rubber cement on your
cardstock. Let
dry. Use your brayer and apply your second ink color. Let dry. Drizzle
one more
layer of rubber cement. Let dry. Apply last ink color. Let dry. When
completely dried, peel off the rubber cement. This gives the resist
look.
Spot Resist: Here’s a little different take on the above technique.
Brush
rubber cement in a scribbling motion onto the center area of a card
and allow
it to dry. Ink a rubber brayer with a multicolored stamp pad or
markers, then
roll the brayer over the card several times. Once the ink has dried,
remove
the rubber cement with a rubber cement pick-up eraser or your fingers.
Now you
will have a wonderfully colored border with a white brushstroke center
. . .
a perfect place for a greeting or to place a previously stamped image
that
has been cut and colored. Doing the technqiue in this manner can also
provide
you with spots for leopords or stripes for zebras. Cool! And here's
yet
another twist . . . sort of a spin off of the Joseph's Coat technique.
First
apply color to the glossy card stock with a multicolored (Spectrum pad
inked)
brayer. Then apply rubber cement as before. Allow to dry and then
apply a layer
of black ink or another darker color with the brayer. Let the card
dry.
Remove the rubber cement, and this time the area under the rubber
cement will be
multicolored with the remainder of the card a solid color. Add a
cut-out
rubber-stamped image over top. Experiment with your own look!

30. Faux Leather Backgrounds. Mix color of re-inker with Liquid
Applique to
get your desired color. Then ink up your brayer using this mixture and
brayer
onto to glossy cardstock. Spread evenly, however a somewhat mottled
look is
desirable for a more real suede appearance. Rinse brayer immediately!
Allow
the Liquid Applique to dry for 10 minutes or more (this drying time is
very
important). Heat evenly with a heat tool. Allow to cool and then
repeat this
process. Note: I like to use a mixture of lighter and darkers shades
of the
same color when mixing Liquid Applique. These variances provide a more
realistic
suede appearance.
Variations: Take several colors of liquid applique and squirt on card
and
then brayer all over the place. Then heat with heat tool and then
stamp various
stamps on top using black ink. Apply white liquid applique and heat.
Then
after stamping image use your chalks to add color as desired.

31. Marbled Chalk Background: Put about an inch of water into a pan
slightly
bigger than your card. With a knife, scrape chalk dust off a few
colors onto
the surface of the water. Lower the glossy card stock flat onto the
surface
of the water to pick up the color, immediately lifting the cardstock
basurface of the water. Lower the glossy card stock flat onto the
surface of the
water to pick up the color, immediately lifting the cardstock back out
of the
water. Allow the cardstock dry flat. You can even press the paper
between heavy
books to flatten it out.

32. Here’s another quick and easy background that uses wax paper or
saran
wrap to create textured backgrounds on glossy card stock. Crumble up a
piece of
wax paper or saran wrap. Dip lightly into Luminere paint and then dab
or tap
on white glossy cardstock. This makes a very subtle yet elegant
background
that is perfect for any special occasion such as an Anniversary or a
Wedding.
To ‘kick this up a notch’ you can also mix a little Pearl Ex to
the Lumiere
before applying. Gorgeous!

33. Scribble Backgrounds combine the best of two worlds . . . Glossy
card
stock and SU! Metallic Pencils. Using three or four coordinating
pencils, make
random scribbles on a ¼ sheet of glossy card stock. Now ink up your
rubber
brayer with dye ink or a Spectrum pad and roll across the card stock,
blending
as you go. The pencil marks are waxy and will resist the ink. You can
stamp
on top with a permanent dye ink like our Basic Black. A similar resist
technique gives you a slightly different look. Scribble on glossy with
the metallic
pencils, but apply three or four dye inks with a sponge, blending and
rubbing as you go. The sponge will remove the pencil from the surface,
but leave
behind a tinted image. Try hand writing a greeting, brayering or
sponging over
it, and rubbing off the pencil.

34. Printer Embossing. Run glossy cardstock through printer and then
emboss
using SU! embossing powder. You can choose gold, silver, or any of the
color
embossing powders or select a color using your printer and then simply
use a
clear embossing powder. This is fun to do for greetings for cards but
also

You can also do the Wax Paper Resist Technique.

Take a piece of wax paper and wad it up. Unwad and place on the glossy side of your glossy CS. With a piece of paper between your iron and the wax paper, iron the wax paper into the CS. Peel off the wax paper and brayer or sponge on the cardstock. You'll see a very interesting pattern appear!

*wow, this looks so inferior to the tip sheet that posted at the same time as mine! At any rate, you can go to the gallery and do a search for wax paper resist.
