I recently learned how to make this GORGEOUS Glossy Paper background, created with Stampin' UP! reinkers, Stampin' Spritzer, and a Wink of Stella pen!! Cindee taught me how to make this fun background, and we created 2 similar cards with this technique, both of them featuring the amazing Daisy Delight stamp and Daisy punch! (save 10% and buy them together in a bundle from Stampin' Up!)
These are the 2 cards we created with the glossy paper background technique. The one on the right also features the same technique for the daisy and the Garden Trellis embossing folder on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. The one on the left features a sponged daisy and the Oh My Stars embossing folder on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.
Both cards are finished off with the beautiful Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon, and clear Faceted Gems.

Sponge Daubers are the key to creating the beautiful blended color on the daisy punch above!
I loved creating these cards with Cindee!! When she blogged these cards, she included a video tutorial. You can watch it here if you'd like to see how she created this background and the daisy.
To create the glossy paper background, you'll need glossy paper, reinkers (ink refills), Stampin' Spritzer or small spray bottle with water, and a Clear Wink of Stella pen. Read below for the instructions:
It's really so easy and you can create these backgrounds in ANY color combo.
For these cards we used Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim Stampin' UP! ink refills, the Stampin' Spritzer and Clear Wink of Stella pen.
Below: all in one tutorial you can pin or print to save this technique for later!
After I cut up my piece of glossy background paper, and used part of it on a card, I used the other part to stamp the Daisy Delight image in Memento Black ink, then punched them out with the daisy punch. SO pretty!
Be sure to slightly curl the petals of your daisy using your bone folder for a lovely dimensional look!
I wanted the daisy to really stand out on this card, so I layered it onto a Whisper White circle that had been embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.. really a fun touch!
