Stampin' Up! Joyful Life


Stampin' Up!'s Joyful Life stamp set is full of adorable characters.  Something about these guys makes me think of the children's Frog and Toad books.  I loved those books as a kid, so I can easily imagine these guys having great fun and great friendships.  (Even though there's not a frog or toad in this set, lol)

Today's card was inspired by this challenge at Sugar Pea Designs.  I attempted to combine the sketch and the photograph by adding lines of stamped leaves on the Cajun Craze Cardstock.  (Handy that this stamp set included small leaves I could do that with)

Early Expresso Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Cajun Craze Cardstock ~ 3-1/2" x 4-3/4"
Gray Granite Cardstock ~ 2-1/2" x 2-1/2"
Cherry Cobbler Cardstock ~ 1/2" x 1-1/2"
Very Vanilla Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

  • Stamp the hedgehog on Gray Granite CS using Tuxedo Black Ink.  Use Blender Pens to color the hedgehog.
  • Use Cajun Craze ink to stamp the leaves in two lines down the Cajun Craze CS
  • Stamp 'For You' in Tuxedo Black ink on the Cherry Cobbler CS.  Use Paper Snips to trim around the words, as shown. 
  • Use Scalloped Contours Dies to cut out the Cajun Craze CS
  • Use Layering Circles Dies to cut out the hedgehog.  Then, cut off the left side of the circle with a Paper Trimmer. 
  • Layer the pieces as shown, using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to attach 'for you' and your favorite adhesive for everything else. 
  • For the inside of the card, attach a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla CS.  I also stamped 'A little something for a great person' to the inside.  

I hope you enjoyed this card!
