Papertrey Ink Blog Hop: High Gloss
Today is the monthly blog hop at Papertrey Ink and the theme is High Gloss. I didn't get overly glossy but I wanted to use a technique that Nichole had demonstrated when the Button Stack dies came out in February. Back in February, I was a day late in getting my Button Stack dies ordered and they were already out of stock. So when the Bitty Button Stacks came out this month, I ordered within minutes of them going on sale - and picked up the full size ones at the same time. They arrived yesterday so absolutely had to go on this card. Nichole stacked the die cuts, added gloss over the entire stack and made a great dimensional button.
There are three layers to the button - Tropical Teal on the bottom, Hawaiian Shores in the middle, and a small circle of Aqua Mist on top. The entire stack is completely covered with Glossy Accents. I would love to show you a close-up, but I had a little mishap at the end - it was almost dry and I carelessly knocked it off my desk. Of course, it landed upside down on the carpet - so instead of being smooth and glossy, there's an annoying carpet texture on it!
I also picked up A Little Inspiration last month. I love the unique sayings and the way the sentiments are separate so you can add color changes.
There's going to be lots of gloss at the blog hop today! It's going to be fun to see what everyone else does with the challenge!
