There are some great Fall colors over at Fab Friday this week. We don’t get a lot of Fall colors here in Southern California, so I just had to play along.
I have seen some great cards made with the giant Thank You stamp in the Another Thank You photopolymer stamp set. One of the techniques that it is just perfect for is called Joseph’s Coat. It is a variation on Emboss Resist. I started with a square of 4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla card stock, and I sponged it all over with Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive. Then I used clear embossing powder to emboss the Thank You. I finished it off by sponging Early Espresso ink over the entire piece. Of course the ink doesn’t stick to the embossing powder, so the sponged colors show through.
Stamps: Another Thank You
Ink: Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Early Espresso
Paper: Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla
Other: Clear Embossing Powder, Regals Candy Dots, Brights Candy Dots
There is paper piercing around the edges. It doesn’t show up well, but adds a hint of extra texture to the card. The finished card is 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″, so you can put it in a regular envelope, or make your own with the envelope punch board.
