    What do you do with Glossy Cardstock? I have a package & I have never quite figured out what to do with it. Any ideas?

    So far the only thing I've used it for is to do a brayered sky and it works perfect for that! Interested to find out what other people use it for.

    Where can I find directions for the polished stone technique? I have never done that one before.

    I am going to have to try the glossy with the colored embossing folders, I have used regular cardstock but not the glossy.

    Thanks for the ideas.

    Soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol (91% works best).
    Add 1-3 drops of each reinker color to cotton ball.
    Pounce on glossy cardstock. Cover entire area.
    Go back over ink to make sure colors are spread out. Can add metallic reinkers for a sparkly look.

    I love Polished stone! I think we'll do that for technique class soon. I've done it before, but that was even before I started doing technique cards and I have a couple newer people. I even used it for the spotlight technique with LLAT. Let's see if I can find some samples.

    ETA: Ok - found them. They were from Fall 2006. I guess it's time to do it again! The Christmas cards was CASED btw.

    Polished stone is my favorite WOW technique. You can also stamp a line art image with stazon and color it with markers. Be careful not to smear and give it time to dry. Sorry it has been a while since I did this-not sure if I can find a sample.

    I've been playing with a brayered technique I saw at convention - there's samples on my blog, and I'm hoping to have directions up tomorrow!

    These samples pair with the printed window sheets which have been embossed. It's pretty cool.

    Hmm, I've never done faux linen. I've done faux silk. Will have to try that one. Oh, and I've done the magic snowflake, which is polished stone over emboss resist. Pretty cool.

    I've done crayon resist on glossy before. Any brayering and baby wipe looks great. I've used StazOn Jet Black with a nice silhouette image then brayered over, or brayer on first and then emboss over the top (black looks rather striking for this). Also faux sanding (I think that's what you call it - you actually sand the surface and then rub some ink into the grooves that are created - makes a great masculine card). Any emboss resist technique is also good on glossy. I also like to use it for the dazzling diamonds technique where you stamp over your images with VersaMark, add Iridescent Ice EP and heat set. That's all I can think of - hope it helps!

    Ah, that's what it's called - Magic Snowflake. Thanks - made one of those for a special
    Christmas card for my folks several years ago but never photographed it and then couldn't remember the technique name.

    The original technique in the Technique Junkies Newsletter, way long ago (circa 2006) was called Magic Maduzia because Vickie Maduzia came up with it. It's interesting that she did the tutorial on SCS for it. Stuff in the TJ was supposed to be for subscribers only.

    Oh, and I did do faux linen once. Totally forgot!

    And I like the baby wipe technique too. Did that for a class and the girls loved it.

    These are all such wonderful ideas! Sounds like time for an "Intro to Glossy Paper" class!

    That's right - I saw the tutorial 'over there' although I may have already had it as I was a TJ subscriber for a while. It's a cool technique with neat results.

    You can also do a technique called ghosting.
    Stamp on your glossy cs with versamark. Wait a sec for it to dry (not long...)
    Brayer over it with your color of choice. Where you stamped with the VM it will slightly resist.
    You can leave it as-is or stamp over this with any other inks.
    This is a fun one to do with the Circle Circus stamp set.
    (I actually did this and made my own postcards for a workshop. Just printed the invite info on the other side first, then did this technique on the glossy side.) Sorry.... no pics!
