Phil 4:8- Think About Such Things

Hi Friends!

I had fun stamping this past weekend and I decided to try an older technique, Joseph’s Coat (see the Splitcoaststamperstutorial here) for a few cards – what a fun technique!  

I had tried the Joseph’s Coat Technique a few years ago and I wanted to create a fairly Clean and Simple (CAS) card so I decided to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers’ SC62 Sketch Challenge along with the CAS377 “Groovy Elements”, the Mix-Ability MIX162 “Time for the Primaries” and the USEIT2016 Challenges (the retired Fresh Vintage image has not seen ink in years :-)).

If you have not had a chance to visit the above Splitcoaststampers’ galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous cards and inspiration from all!!

To create this card:

Use Sponge Daubers, apply Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Rose Red Classic Ink to a piece of Glossy White cardstock, blending the colors but leaving some of the true color as well.

Once the ink as dried, de-static with an Embossing Buddy® and stamp the medallion image from Fresh Vintage (retired SAB set) over the background (I tried to avoid overlapping but it was difficult :-)). 

Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder , heat set with the Heat Tool and allow the embossed images to cool.

Once cooled, use a Sponge Dauber (versus a brayer as in the tutorial) to apply Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink over the images, applying multiple coats to achieve the darkness you desire.

Wipe off the excess ink with a paper towel and trim a piece to create the panel on the card.

Fold a piece of Extra Thick Whisper White cardstock in half (I used a 4 ¼” x 11” piece scored at 5 ½” and ended up trimming the final card to 3 ¾” x 5 ¼” to fit an envelope I had on hand).

Another view- I should have used the Embossing Buddy
a bit heavier in the center- oops! :-)
Stamp the verse sentiment from the Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 9 with Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink directly onto the card front and adhere the Joseph’s Coat panel to finish off the card.

Quick and easy and I had so much fun with this technique that I created a second card with a large background stamp- I will post that one later this evening :-). 

Stamp Sets: Fresh Vintage (retired Stampin’ Up! SAB set), Scripture Collection 9 (Our Daily Bread Designs)

Ink: Versamark™, Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Classic Ink- Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Rose Red

Paper: Extra Thick Whisper White, retired Glossy White

Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by-  hugs to all of you!

Julie this is a stunning card. The verse is so special and I really like the rainbow of colours on the flowers. Thanks for sharing.
