Be Mine using a Joseph's Coat technique

Hello and welcome the post for today. We've been having some snowy weather here in Virginia and I'm sure that you can imagine how crafty I am being since it's too cold outside and there's no reason for me to travel anywhere. I created the card I'm going to share for a group challenge to use the Joseph's Coat technique and I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. There's an element of surprise when doing the final step and I think that's the part I like the best. For this card there is Sponging, Heat embossing and then covering it all up for the big reveal. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.



Additional supplies: ATG tape runner, Heat tool, Powder bag, clear blocks.

1. Create a card base from Watermelon Wonder card stock that is 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼” to make a top-folded card.

2. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock (4”x 5 ¼”) and adhere to the card base.

3. On a ¼” smaller piece of Whisper White card stock, sponge on Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder inks. Let dry.

4. Stamp images onto the sponged panel using VersaMark ink and then sprinkle with Clear Embossing powder. Heat with heating tool. When the powder is melted and dry, sponge over the whole panel with Soft Suede ink and then rub off the excess ink with a paper towel. Watch the magic happen!!!

5. Punch out a banner using the Duet Banner punch and stamp a sentiment in the center using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Sponge the banner with Crushed Curry ink.

6. Pop the banner up with Dimensionals and adhere to the sponged panel. Adhere the whole panel to the card base.

The inside of the card was left blank for a personal message.

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will check back often for more inspiration. Thank you for visiting.
