More "Joseph's Coat"!

Yesterday I shared how to do the Joseph's Coat technique, and I love that it is totally unpredictable!  Well, today I have a 2nd card to share.

I used brighter colors for my "under-stamping", and then a different color over.top.  I have one tip to share with you first.



Do you see my stitched rectangle in the photo above? Well, as you will see in the next photo, I created a custom-size rectangle for this sentiment.  I've indicated the die I used for the sentiment, however, my sentiment size required a smaller rectangle.  I cut the left side of my sentiment first, then reinserted the rectangle into my rectangle die and cut off the RIGHT side of my sentiment.  You have to make sure that the width is centered in the die if you're customizing the length. On the other hand, if you're customizing the width, as in possibly the bigger dies on the right, you'd want to center your length in the die.  I wanted my sentiment to end up in a label that was 1 3/4" x 7/8".  Please comment below if this doesn't make sense and I will do a video showing how to do this exactly.  


Since I gave you a "tutorial" yesterday for how to do the Joseph's Coat stamping technique (including links to my FB live and/or my YouTube channel where I SHOWED how to do the technique, I'm going to get right to my card recipe today. 

Card "Recipe":

Dimensions:
Call Me Clover c/s: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Melon Mambo c/s: 3 3/4" x 5"
Basic Black c/s: 3 7/8" x 2 3/4"
Whisper White c/s: 3 3/4" x 2 5/8"; scrap Whisper White c/s: 3" x 1"

Directions:
1. Cut and score the cardstock as indicated.
2. Emboss the Melon Mambo c/s layer with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and the Big Shot. Attach to your card base.
3. Do the Joseph's Coat technique on the larger Whisper White c/s piece: I sponged Granny Apple Green on the bottom, Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana and Mango Melody inks in the upper parts of the piece, completely covering up the white of the cardstock. After briefly heat setting the inks, I stamped different images from the Enjoy Life stamp set in VersaMark ink. After sprinkling clear embossing powder over the images, I heat set/embossed the images.  I sponged Bermuda Bay ink over the entire cardstock piece, and then buffed the excess ink off of the embossed images with a paper towel.  Refer to my facebook live video posted on 7/10/19 on my page, Jeannie Nielsen the Card Lady page  or to my YouTube channel to see how to do this technique if the instructions are unclear.  
4. Stamp the sentiment, "Life looks beautiful on you" from the Beautiful You stamp set on the smaller piece of Whisper White c/s and cut out with the stitched rectangle die as described above in the main blog post.
5. Attach the stamped c/s piece to the Basic Black c/s mat, then attach to the Melon Mambo layer.  Pop up the sentiment with dimensionals to the left of your image.
