All the details on posting a link (and a card too). To add a link, it is basically a copy and paste, but here are the nitty-gritties:

Okay. So, I desperately need an embossing buddy if I want this to look better, but here's my first shot at this. Thanks for the idea and the instructions.

JuliaS:

I read the note you left at my sample (thanks, by the way), then looked at your Paisley Print Joseph's Coat. Did you use "detail clear" or regular clear embossing powder.

I made 60 of a Christmas card very similar to my sample. I ran out of detail clear and used regular clear. And guess what, it looked like your example - the detail was lost.

For the fine detail on the Paisley Print (or any fine detail stamp) you really really really need to use detail embossing powder. It is all I buy if I can get it in the colors I want because you can use it for anything and it doesn't cost any more. It is just more finely ground. Also make sure you have a good coating of VersaMark on the stamp.

Same goes for word stamps - use only detail embossing powder if you can. Try it out on a very small word stamp using colored powder. Do one with detail and the same stamp again with regular. You will be amazed at the difference. I show this to my customers - two samples done in Navy embossing powder using a very tiny script background stamp.

Hope this helps!

I've been lurking around for a few weeks now, loving this site! I finally got the nerve to try the challenge and upload my cards. Here is my first upload, it says image pending approval so we'll see how it goes.....this is the same card, one with flash, one without

Versamark resist technique (not embossed) does not work to do a Josephs Coat card. I thought it was worth a try, but all I ended up with is black fingers and a smeary looking piece of glossy! Oh well, trying new things are half the fun! (yeah, I know I should have worn gloves!)

Okay. I tried a couple more times and used a dryer sheet as my embossing buddy. These turned out better than the first one, but I still think they could turn out better. This is a fun, fun technique, though. Thanks for the challenge!

thanks for the comments on my card. My friends call me a perfectionist because even with my embossing buddy or dryer sheet, I always use a small stiff paintbrush to get rid of any stray ep. I can't help it! Maybe that will help you. I really love the look of this, it reminds me of when I was little and made something similar with black crayon and a scratching tool. Very fun, THanks!

Bummer, yesterday morning I saw this challenge so began working on some cards. A few hours later when I went back to see what code I was to use this link had disappeared. So I just uploaded the cards as normal. Is there a way that I can get them posted in the Joseph's Coat challenge?

I believe you can go back and edit the keyword section of each card but this may take a while and they might need to be re-approved if you do this. Why don't just copy the links and pasted them into a reply to this thread.

Good luck, we'd love to see your work.

That was fun! I just used cotton balls, made orange dots on the glossy cardstock, then a circle around each with pink passion, then filled in the rest with positively pink. Came out very bright, so put on your sunglasses before you click on my link...http://gallery.splitcoaststampers.co...cat=500&page=1

Here's mine! I guess I didn't wait long enough for the spectrum colors to dry because my ep stuck to the whole thing (even after using the embossing buddy!) I managed to salvage it though! I think this technique looks great!!

All of the cards submitted are great but I wonder why it must be done with glossy card stock. I noticed one person used utlra smooth and they looked just like the glossy. I have never in 10 years of stamping owned glossy card stock and I have been wanting to try this technique. Is it really a must for this?

Well, glossy just makes the colors "pop" more... You can do this on matte CS. Heck, I did it on scrapbook paper... but the paper really absorbs the embossing powder when heated and the colors just aren't as vibrant. Go ahead and give it a try on US white or any of the other CS. Play with it! Also, you can use a sponge if you don't have a brayer. Accendental results can be just as fun! I've even embossed on metal and used stazon to bring out what I embossed. You are limited only by your imagination.

Okay ladies, love all your examples, but I need help. My friend and I tried this technique and it didn't work for us. We followed the directions but found we couldn't get the black to go on black or buff off the embossed image. Any thoughts as to why? We don't have the foam attachment for the brayer so we used the rubber one for the black. We also tried using a black reinker and a sponge to get it on. That didn't work either. How did you guys get the black to be so black?

Did you use glossy cardstock?


I also used the rubber brayer attachment, but didn't seem to have any problems. So the cardstock issue is the only thing I can think of. Oh, also, you want to rub the black off of the embossed image quickly--while the ink is still wet.

If you are using an archival/waterproof type ink you will have problems. The first two that I tried I accidentally used archival ink and couldn't rub off the black. Dye ink is best. I have seen some instructions that call for pigment ink but I have not had much luck using it.

We used glossy. Maybe we used the wrong ink type, I remember one of them was the Staz-On reinker. Will borrow the Basic Black from my other friend and see how that works. I'll keep you posted, and thanks for the help.

Tiffanyb, if you are referring to Stampin! Up's basic black, that probably won't work very well as it is water proof. It will be difficult to rub off the embossed area. You need a non-water proof dye ink. Marvy is good but it is a pain trying to ink a brayer with a small ink pad.

Well crap that sucks. I don't have any other ink pads to try then. I figured the instructions called for SU Basic Black that that should work. Hmmm...may have to got to the store and see what I can find.

Tiffany,
I used SU! Basic Black and it works just fine. You do have to go over the cardstock back and forth with the brayer a bunch of times to get really good coverage...same with a sponge. Press hard and rub rub rub! Sorry you are having such a tough time with this technique! Keep trying!
