Need for Speed

Hello my High Hopes friends! Today, I'm sharing a super cool (and shiny!) card I made featuring the Need for Speed and Half the Fun sentiment stamps by High Hopes Rubber Stamps! I just love adding a little sparkle to my cards, but for this card I added a whole lot! This Need for Speed stamp reminded me of a super sleek and shiny sports car so I totally knew that I just had to make it shine!

With the help of a stamping tool, I repeatedly stamped the Need for Speed stamp in Versamark clear ink on gray card stock. Versamark is a clear sticky ink that remains sticky for a good amount of time after stamping. This is the perfect kind of ink to use with Perfect Pearl Pigment Powder! I used a soft bristled brush to wipe the Perfect Pearls over the gray card stock and it sticks to the Versamark ink! So cool!

To add even more shine to this card, I just couldn't resist adding some super shiny silver foil! A super easy way to add foil to your cards is to use double-sided adhesive! Just lay down the strip of adhesive where you want the foil, peel off the backing, and put the foil right on top of the tape. The foil will stick to the tape! Super easy and quick!

Lastly, for the sentiment I heat embossed the Half the Fun stamp in white embossing powder on black card stock. Just for fun, I also die cut the word "dude" from some silver metallic card stock. I love adding fun and playful sentiments to my cards!
