Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Josephs Coat

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s weekend is going well. I hope you will all take a moment of silence today for all the lives that were lost over 20 years ago. I remember the day like it was yesterday with all our phone going dead and just glued to the tv watching. My children were both in school in lock down until school was over and I could pick them up. I was so scared of what was happening and what could happen. It was a very sad and scary time.

Today’s card is one that we made at our Stamp Camp Class this past Tuesday night. I thought I’d have fun with a couple techniques with the ladies. This one I saw one of my team members make, Mary Deatherage, and I thought it would be perfect with our fall theme. It’s called the Josephs Coat Technique. You can see Mary’s video making this card Here. Here is my card for today.

Today’s card once again uses the Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings Cling Stamp Set. This is such a perfect set for fall cards and all kinds of techniques.

I started with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and using my Blending Brushes I added Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks completely covering the panel. I set the panel to the side to dry completely. You can also use your Heat Tool on the #1 setting to dry the panel. You want to make sure the ink is completely dry before stamping or the embossing powder will stick to the ink and this technique will not work.

Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Versamark Ink randomly around the panel. I sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Once the panel cooled, I used my Blending Brush again and brushed Early Espresso Ink all over the panel completely covering it again. Once I had the amount of ink I wanted, I took a paper towel and gently rubbed all over the panel wiping the ink off the embossed areas and letting the colors shine through. I adhered the panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla Thick card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered a piece of Old Olive ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Textural Element to the card front just under the sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Soft Seedlings stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I used my Blending Brushes and added color to the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set and stamped the leaves on the panel. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to an Early Espresso mat and then to the inside of the Very Vanilla Thick card base

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the large leaf image from the Soft Seedlings stamp set on the envelope front and flap in Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Inks.
