Hi Again Friends!
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers’ “Hope You Can Cling To” HYCCT1530TEAM “Turning You Loose” Challenge to create a card using any Splitcoaststampers’ tutorial that you have never tried in the past.
I have always wanted to create a card with the Joseph’s Coat technique and have been hoarding (oops! I mean saving) my retired Stampin’ Up! Glossy White cardstock for just the right occasions- what better time than the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges?
I am also linking this card to the Splitcoaststampers’ Mix-Ability MIX124 “PositivelyNegatively” Challenge, Stampin’ Royalty #301 “Anything Goes” Challenge and the Simon Says Monday Throwback Challenge and I decided to use the 09/14/15 “Love This Technique” Challenge (this is my first time with the Joseph's Coat Technique and I love it!) :-)
Again, I hope you have a chance to visit all of the above galleries- wonderful inspiration from all!!
The link to the Splitcoaststampers’ Joseph’s Coat Tutorial is here and the only modification was that I decided to use Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stains with a craft mat (instead of a multicolored pad with the brayer).
Apply Seedless Preserves, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stains onto a craft mat, lay a piece of Glossy White cardstock in to the ink, twist and swirl the paper to merge the ink.
Once the panel has dried (you can speed the process with a Heat Tool), de-static with the Embossing Buddy® , ink the retired Day of Gratitude stamp image with Versamark™, stamp over the background panel, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Once the embossing powder has cooled, use a Brayer along with a Sponge Dauber (for the smaller areas in the main image) to apply Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink over the entire panel.
Gently wipe the ink off the embossed images, trim the panel and mount the panel onto a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card front.
Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and cut out with the Big Shot™ and the My Favorite Things™ Stitched Horizontal Strip Dies.
Add the Copper Cord and mount the sentiment onto a piece of Tangerine Tango.
Add the looped Copper Cord to the card front and mount the sentiment using dimensional foam.
Add the Copper Cord bow to finish off the card.
