July Auckland Extravaganza – Joseph’s Coat & Diorama Cards

By | July 17, 2018

Today I will share with you two more projects from the Auckland Extravaganza that we held earlier this month.  This was a fun afternoon where the guests made five different projects over the course of the afternoon.  If you missed out on seeing the impossible card my team and I taught, you can check it out here.

Here are two more of the five projects.

The first one features the Joseph’s Coat  Technique.

This is quite an effective technique. The colour is sponged onto the card first.  Then you stamp over this with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder is applied.  This allows for the emboss resist technique.  Lastly, black ink covers the whole card front and the sponged colour just shows where the clear embossing was.  It makes for a stunning card.  The stamp used for this card is Accented Blooms.


The second card is a Diorama card with the depth in the card.  It was taught by Rachael, Heather and Judith.  This is the front of the card.

This card features the Sweet Storybook stamp set and is a very cute stamp set.  At the event they used the Stamparatus to do the stamping.  The black outline was stamped first and then the Crumb Cake ink for the mice, or the Real Red ink for the toadstool was stamped inside this.  The Stamparataus makes this kind of stamping so much easier.

This is a view from the top so you can see the depth of the card.  It can also fold flat and fit into a standard sized envelope.
