     Welcome to Highlight Monday! I hope everyone had a great Easter. I was blessed to have one of my daughters come for the weekend. We had a good time plus, she left me with my grandchild. I love being a grandma as much as I love card-making. I am going to make this post short so; I can play with my grandson. I would love to know how your Easter went. Did you get to visit with family and friends? Was your Easter quiet with a lot of crafting? Did you start making your mother’s day cards? Please share with me how your Easter was. Since it is Monday, I will be introducing to you a technique which is called Joseph’s coat. Joseph’s coat is where you have an image coming through multi-colors poping through it. You what time is it, it is coffee time. I am going to grab a cup of coffee and meet you in the craft room.


Crafting Steps

Joseph's Coat

Welcome to the craft room. Joseph’s coat has been around for a while. It is a fun technique that uses bright background colors, an embossed image, and black ink on top.

The materials we need are:

white card stock

distress ink in yellow, green, and purple

A stamp

Clear embossing powder

Clear ink

Distress black ink


  1. Cut a piece of white card stock to 5′ by 5′.
  2. Start bottom of the card stock with the green ink.  
  3. Apply the yellow ink blending the ink into green ink.
  4. Add the purple ink and make sure it overlaps the yellow ink.
  5. Ink up a stamp with clear embossing ink and stamp it onto the color background.
  6. Apply clear embossing powder onto the stamp image.
  7. Apply black ink onto the embossed image.
  8. Wipe off the extra ink with a paper towel.
  9. Glue the panel onto a grey card base.
  10. Cut sentiment out of white card stock.
  11. For a finishing touch, add sequins.

Here is how it turned out:

Word of the Day

      The word of today is forgiveness. Is forgiveness for you or the person that offend you? Why is it important to forgive someone? Is it easier to forgive someone else if someone has forgiven you? Forgiveness is a powerful thing. The act of being forgiven is something you will never forget. Does a person have to ask for your forgiveness before you forgive them? Let’s always forgive each other.

     I am so glad to share the technique of Joseph’s coat with you today. Please take time this week to craft and create.
