 Played around with glossy paper today.   I wanted to do a little resist stamping.  I love the effect that white ink on glossy cardstock has when it is inked over...then wiped subtle and pretty. 
Another delicious flower to use in my cards!!!  This time, stamped on the leftover patterned paper used on the same card.  Gotta add some ribbon too...I thought the black check gave just the contrast it needed to bring down the formality of the card a bit...Not too stuffy! 
 Here you can see the glossy cardstock and the stamping of the leaves using white ink as a "mask".  After inking the background with a sponge, I rubbed off the white ink to reveal the non-colored image it left behind. 
This close-up shows the golden edge created with Rub-n-buff and a little shimmer from copper Tsukeniko shimmer spritz. 

And a great CHRISTMAS card using a new FERN stamp in the Woodland Fern Precut Set...I'm going to be doing this quite a bit more...I see gold, silver, green, blue, red trees in the future! 

Did some generational stamping with the tree to create some depth and a little rustic feel. Really simple layout was all it needed. 
 Here was my chance to add some of my much neglected silver and red Stickles.  I might go back and connect the dots with some doodling-to create cording like christmas lights...Maybe not. 
To finish it off, I used some antique-like clear chunky glitter sitting in my craft room.  I think I bought that stuff YEARS ago to decorate some christmas ornaments.

Thanks for stopping by!  See you soon.
