I just had a similar problem, although not exactly what the OP was describing. I needed a shiny stamped element to cut out to add to a project. It was the worst of all possible scenarios - a clear stamp with both fine lines and large solid areas. After trying 5 different black inks, both clear & black embossing powder (with two different embossing inks), and two different kinds of paper, I finally got closest to the shiny effect I wanted with black Staz-On on glossy cardstock. (And if anyone can tell me how to avoid the orange peel finish on embossed images, I'd be eternally grateful!)
