PaperTrey Ink March Blog Hop Challenge

Challenge: High Gloss
I created this card for the PaperTrey Ink March Blog Hop Challenge
If you enjoy this project see how to follow my blog, on the right side, to see more Simple Creations. On this card I did alot of Stamping & Heat Embossing with Clear Embossing Powder to create a High Gloss shine.


Stamps: PaperTrey Ink Background Basics: Postmarks
Paper: PaperTrey Ink White, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold
Ink: PaperTrey Ink Pure Poppy & Versa Mark
Other: Twine, Clear Embossing Powder, & Rhinestones

To create the base layer I stamped with Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. But on the light Harvest Gold paper it didn't show up like I was hoping. So I rubbed a Pure Poppy ink pad over it. Then I wiped off the ink on the embossing with a baby wipe. I love the result. Now it really pops off the page. 


  1. WONDERFUL card!

    Have a GREAT day!
