Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working half day tomorrow and all day Sunday too. Tomorrow is our World Card Making Day Facebook event. Please join us if you can. There will be live videos starting at 9am and the last one is at 5pm.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Cling Stamp Set along with the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color DSP to the front of a Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using my 3rd largest Layering Circle Dies, I cut the card base and card front together.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment strip to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pig and leaf images from Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the 4th largest Layered Circles Dies. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Bumblebee and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the artwork to a Bumblebee scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Merry Merlot circle that I cut from the card base, using Stampin ‘ Seal.

For the inside I scored a panel of Basic White cardstock at 2″, 4″ & 6″. The 2″ & 4″ score lines are folded at a mountain fold and the 6″ score line is a valley fold.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brew Some Fun Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the back section of the folded panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the front section of the Basic White panel to the front of the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the top, left side and the bottom of the 2″ front section. I adhered the layered artwork through the front opening of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue only on the back of the right side.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pig and leaf images from the Joyful Life stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.
