Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Card

The Joyful Life Stamp Set has just the cutest images!!

I’ve used it a couple of times already (here, here, here, here).

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Card

I decided to use it again for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop theme: Leaves.

My card starts off with Cajun Craze cardstock. I then took a smaller panel and embossed it using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I really like to do this color on color with one panel embossed. It’s a simple detail but adds nice texture to the card. I did the same thing a couple of days ago with the Timber Embossing Folder.

I then used one die from the Seasonal Labels Dies and another from the Tasteful Labels Dies and cut out pieces from the Cork paper.

I stamped the images from the Joyful Life in Memento Black Ink and colored it in using Crumb Cake (bear), Old Olive (shirt, leaves), Smoky Slate (basic), Petal Pink (rabbit), Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie (leaves) Stampin’ Blends. I then fussy cut it all out and adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the In Symmetry Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink, fussy cut out, and adhered it over the banner.

Lastly, I added a couple of Gilded Gems next to the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Friendship Card

Last Friday I shared a card I made for my team’s Mystery Stamping night.

The card I shared was the sample I made (though I didn’t show anyone until we were all done).
Today’s card is the one I made alongside my team Tuesday night.

My card starts off with Cajun Craze cardstock.

I then took a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and embossed it using the Timber Embossing Folder. I matted it on a panel of Basic White cardstock alongside a pattern from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink and cut it out with the Seasonal Labels Dies, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the piggie from Joyful Life Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored it in with Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Petal Pink, and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then fussy cut it out and adhered it over the label.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Thank You Card

I shared a sweet card Monday using the cute pig from the Joyful Life Stamp Set.

Today I’m sharing another card using it, but this time showing the sweetest hedgehog.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Life Thank You Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop theme is “autumn/harvest,” and although my card doesn’t scream fall – I saw the apples in the bowl and knew I wanted to use this stamp set.

Each fall, we go apple picking and then come home and make fresh apple pie. It’s something I really look forward to – there’s nothing like freshly picked apples!

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock.

I then used the Hippo & Friends Dies to cut out a large label from regular copy paper. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I layered over the label as a stencil and used a Blending Brush to add Crumb Cake ink. I then embossed it using the Timework Embossing Folder and matted it on another Basic White panel.

Next I stamped the hedgehog from the Joyful Life Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and colored it in using Real Red, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut him out using the same Hippo & Friends Dies.

Underneath the label, I wound over a piece of Real Red ribbon and then added a couple of Rhinestones and Dots around.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from Pansy Patch Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Soft Suede cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I cut it out with the same Hippo & Friends Dies.
