Joseph’s coat technique featuring In-Colours

Jun 21, 2022

Join me as I show you how to do the Joseph’s coat technique featuring In-Colours

I made this sample card to highlight the brand new Stampin Up! 2022-2024 In Colours back in May.

It’s such an easy technique and you can create so many beautiful versions.

What you will need for the Joseph’s coat technique

You will need a variety of ink pads in colours that complement each other – I suggest 3-4 colours.

For this project I used Tahitian Tide, Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party.

You will notice that I didn’t use Orchid Oasis – this is because this colour is very similar to Starry Sky.

I wanted to use Starry Sky to blend as the final step -so avoid colours on your base layer that are too dark .

I chose to use the Daisy background stamp for this design -but you can also stamp individual stamps for your design.

Blending brushes are highly recommended for this project -but you can try using this with sponges.

I haven’t personally done this technique using sponges -but it may be worth giving it a go.

Cardbase -cut at standard 8¼” x 5½” -score at 4 1/8″.

Background designer series paper – cut at 4″ x 5 3/8″

Basic white cardstock -cut at 3 7/8″ x 5¼”


Clear embossing powder

Heat tool


Let’s put this card together

Once you’ve decided on your colour scheme for the base layer – go ahead and put that colour onto your basic white cardstock. Blend 3 colours in different places all over the cardstock.

Allow it to dry -you can hurry the process by using a heat tool.

Once it’s properly dry, then wipe over the ink with an embossing buddy if you have one.

Or you can use any anti-static cloth.

Ink up your stamp(s) with versamark and stamp over the blended colours.

Cover the versamark with clear embossing powder -set the powder using a heat tool.

Once this has completely cooled, do the next amazing step!

Now, using a dark pigmented ink -such as Starry Sky, take your blending brush and go over the embossed image.

Be sure to blend this dark colour all over the card -filling in all the gaps.

You should now start to see the back colours coming through.

Isn’t this just so cool??

You can finish off your card using ribbon -or you can leave it as it.

Adhere the DSP to your card base, then adhere your stamped image onto the DSP

And there you have your Joseph’s coat featuring the new In-Colours 2022-2024!
