More Colorful Seasons - Joseph's Coat for Winter

Hi there and Happy Saturday! Can you believe it's September already? Where did this summer go? I think I must have missed something because it seems it just started and it's already all over. Good thing I love Fall too, I'm just not a big fan of Winter, except I do love stamped Winters!

I've been having so much fun playing the the Joseph's Coat technique, and from the looks of all the amazing projects being posted over on my FB page, so are you! It really is a fun technique that packs a really big punch and WOW! And this time did't disappoint either. This time around, I decided to play with the snowflakes in this same stamp set, Colorful Seasons. This stamp set is one of my top picks from the Annual catalog because it will carry you through every season. So, if you're stamping on a budget, you will get a lot of bang for your stamping buck with this set.

Supplies for this card are listed and linked below. The card base is Night of Navy, cut 8.5" x 5.5" scored and folded at 4.25"; the Balmy Blue is cut 5.25" x 4" and the Whisper White is cut 5" x 3.75" and sponged with Balmy Blue ink, Pool Party ink and Night of Navy ink. 

I then prepped the piece with the Embossing Buddy and randomly stamped the 2 snowflake images with the Versamark ink and embossed with the clear embossing powder. I then used the sponge Brayer and coated the entire piece with Night of Navy ink and watched the snowflakes emerge beautifully! I then stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy on the Balmy Blue and cut it out using the Stitched Labels Framelits and attached it to the card front using the Whisper White 1/8" Sheer ribbon. 

I so glad you have been enjoying the Joseph's Coat technique. I hope you continue to play around with it and experiment with other colors. Be sure to share, I LOVE seeing your results.

Colorful Seasons Wears Joseph's Coat

Hey there and Happy Tuesday! I pray you're having an amazing day! I was up at 2 AM compliments of one very adorable Shorkie and a dandy thunder storm.....good thing he's as adorable as he is that's for sure, I mean, yes, I do get up at 4 AM normally, but 2 AM is really pushing it, but the poor little guy was petrified, shivering and shaking and slapping me like I some how had control over it.

Ok, enough about that! Today, I have a fun card to share with you using the very cool Joseph's Coat technique. I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set and some fun colors including the brand new Mango Melody. I LOVE this color and it pairs really well with the Bermuda Bay and Mossy Meadow.

To create this card, I started with a standard card base of Early Espresso measuring 8.5" x 5.5" scored and folded at 4.25" and a piece of Mango Melody measuring 5.25" x 4" and a Whisper White panel that measured 5" x 3.75". I then sponged onto the Whisper White, Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Mossy Meadow ink using Stampin' Sponges, taking care not to leave any white space.

I then prepped the panel with my Embossing Buddy, which is a powder filled "pillow" that removes any static, oils from your fingers etc. to ensure a good embossing surface. Once I was sure my panel was well prepared. I randomly stamped the leaves around the panel. I then coated the panel in clear Stampin' Emboss powder and heated it with my Stampin' Heat Tool. Once that step was complete, I used Early Espresso ink with my sponge brayer and layered the ink over the entire piece ensuring it was completely covered....this is where the magic happens! As you are layering the dark ink over your panel, the stamped and embossed images literally jump off the cardstock. The colors pop and become so vibrant. It really is amazing and produces a lot of WOW!

Now, go ahead and try it! I would LOVE to see your results! If you try this, be sure to stop by my FB page and post a photo sharing your results.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping,
