Default glossy vs. plain cardstock

You promise you won't laugh?

What's the difference between glossy cardstock & regular cardstock that I can get at JoAnn Fabrics?

If there is a difference, where can I find some?
Thanks

Glossy cardstock has a shiny coating on it. Regular is like most normal paper. The glossy is good for using dye inks on because the colors come out really really vibrant. I know there is glossy in the SU idea book and catelogue. Other than that depending on your areas paper stores they may or may not carry it. Hope this helps.

Glossy has a coating on it and takes dye inks beautifully and looks awesome if you brayer on a multicolor ink pad. If you are using pigment inks, you must emboss or it will smear because glossy paper has a coating on it. Glossy paper was the first thing I saw demo'd and I was hooked.

I'm not saying this just because I'm a demo, but don't invest a lot in glossy paper from Joannes or anywhere for that matter. buy the smallest amount possible and try it out. It might be great, but it might be lousy. Glossy paper varies in quality a great deal. SU's is great and I stick with it. Ditto with cardstock. Just my opinion!!!

Talking glossy paper

I must agree with Joan B. and not because I'm a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I've used all kinds of paper from various stores and Stampin' Up!'s cardstock is by far THE BEST! The color runs through the paper entirely; it's not white on the inside. It's heavy enough to keep from bleeding and is just the best paper to use. I used to tell people to buy from Michael's or other craft store, but not any more. I found out that SU! really does have the best products.

I LOVE Su glossy-if you click on forums and then go down to resources, there is a wonderful list of what to do with glossy.

I think it looks great with Black Staz On as well-really wonderful contrast!!!

I can ditto the other ladies and I am NOT a SU demo. Their cardstock is amazing. And specifically with the glossy, theres is sooooo much better than anything I've bought in the store. Now before you buy a pack you may want to see if your craft store has some so you can play with it but if you really want to make stuff using glossy paper SU! is absolutely the only way to go!
