Stampin' Up! Joyful Life card


Stampin' Up!'s Joyful Life stamp set makes me smile.  I love all the images and sentiments in it, but my favorite is the bear and bunny on a bike!  They truly look like they are having a great time.  I find that changing the colors is one way to keep this fun and fresh, since I find myself using this set a lot!  

This fun card was inspired by Sketch Challenge 529 at Try Stampin' On Tuesday's blog.
Will you create a card with this sketch as your inspiration? 

Card Base ~ Smoky Slate Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 3-3/4" x 4-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Balmy Blue Cardstock ~ 1-1/4" x 4-1/4"
Scrap of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock 
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"

  • Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the bear, bunny and bicycle on Layer 1
  • Color the image with Stampin' Blends - I used Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo, Smoky Slate, Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie
  • Create a scalloped edge on Layer 2 with the edge die from Scalloped Contours Dies.  
  • Stamp 'You Make Life a Joy' on the scrap of Pumpkin Pie CS.  Trim around it with Paper Snips
  • Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach Layer 2 behind Layer 1, as shown
  • Adhere the layers to the card base by gluing Layer 2 and adding Dimensionals to Layer 1
  • For the sentiment, add a touch of liquid glue behind 'you' and a Stampin' Dimensional, cut in half, behind 'joy'.  Then attach the card. 

For the inside, make sure your stamp is completely clean.  Then, stamp only the bunny in the basket on the edge of the inside layer.  Color with Stampin' Blends.   Adhere to the inside of the card with your favorite adhesive.
