Stamp Review Crew: Vintage Leaves Edition

Posted by on September 6, 2015


It’s time again for another Stamp Review Crew blog hop! This time we are featuring the Vintage Leaves stamp set. You may have just arrived from Debra Burgin’s Blog, or if you are going backwards from Bronwyn Eastley’s Blog. No worries, even if you are starting here. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single amazing project. If you get stuck, you can always click the link to the Stamp Review Crew to take you to the master list.

My first card is clean and simple, easy to create, but with a subtle wow factor. I love the woodgrain embossing on Very Vanilla cardstock.

For my second card, I stuck with the clean but went for a bigger wow. I used the Joseph’s Coat Technique. I sponged my cardstock with Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, and Rich Razzleberry inks. Then I embossed the leaves with clear embossing powder. Finally, I covered the card with a layer of Early Espresso ink, so that only the embossed parts would show through. I love the way it came out!

    Seeing what you’ve done with the Joseph’s Coat technique gives me all kinds of ideas — wonderful, beautiful projects, Yapha!

    Yapha, I love the black background on one of your cards. The names are a bit abstract and the bright colors really pop on the black background. Gorgeous!

    It’s been ages since I’ve done Joseph’s coat technique. Thanks for the reminder. The leaves look stunning. Your first card is an eye catcher too. Love the embossed woodgrain on Very Vanilla.
