Sorry I didn't get anything posted Tuesday but my stamping buddy Julie came over and helped me get my blog updated and the links to catalogs and promotions all done!! I am so happy with it! Thanks so much Julie you are the best!!!!! I love that through Stampin' Up I have met some really wonderful people!! I have really been trying to learn new techniques and I got a little inspired last night while watching the hockey game (the Capitals of course!) and remembered a video I watched just the other day so I decided to give this a try. It is the Joseph Coat technique and I saw the tutorial video on Stamp and Scrap with Frenchie. The video was was done and easy to follow and I was so happy with my card. Thanks Frenchie for sharing!! Here are the details:
Cardstock: Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, More Mustard, Always Artichoke
Ink: Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Versa Mark, EarlyEspresso
Stamp Set (s): Paisley Prints (pg. 11 in the Holiday Mini Catalog)
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder (pg. 196), Heat Gun (pg. 196), Stamping Sponges (pg. 195), 5/8" Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon (pg. 191), Curly Label Punch (pg. 203), Embossing Buddy (pg. 196), Snail Adhesive (pg. 197)
I had never done this technique before and it was super easy. I sponged the vanilla card stock with the More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, and Cajun Craze so that the vanilla was covered completely, then I used the embossing buddy and rub allover the sponged cardstock and then stamp the image in Versamark then cover in clear embossing powder and then use the heat gun to emboss. Then take your darkest color (early espresso in my card) and cover the entire piece of sponged cardstock. Wait a little bit for it to set then wipe off the embossed images and voila..... beautiful!! I got my ideas for the colors from my very own front yard, and I had to share that picture too! It's so pretty this time of year with all the pretty colors so I tried to copy those colors in my card!! What do you think? I am going to try this again with glossy paper, and I will share that result once I try it! Thanks for visiting and I will have more cards for you either Saturday or Sunday!! Have a great day!
