Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is your weekend going? Is anyone doing anything adventurous and fun?

I used another one of my favorite sets today for a CAS card. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Cling Stamp Set along with the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #440.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #506.

I started by embossing a Basic White card front using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered 2 strips of the Brights DSP in Poppy Parade and Pacific Point and 1 strip of the Garden Green Regals DSP to the card front on an angle. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base.

Using my Layering Circle Dies I cut the 3rd largest circle and the coordinating scallop circle from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the circle. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker. On a scrap of the Pacific Point Brights DSP I stamped the same image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut the apron out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stamped image. I adhered the circle to the scalloped circle and then to the card front.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of the Garden Green Regals DSP to the corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Brights DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

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.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Hope your weekend is starting out fun. We’re suppose to have a wet one here. I’ll be at work all day today, but I actually have off tomorrow, YAY!! I was not expecting that, but I’ll take it.

I have a clean and simple card for you today. I thought I’d do one last summer card before I go full swing into fall and holiday cards. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Cling Stamp Set along with You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My colors are from Global Design Project Challenge #305.

I played along with TGIF Challenge #330.

I started by adding Balmy Blue Ink using my Blending Brush, to the front of a Thick Basic White card base.

I cut a panel of You’re A Peach DSP using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the front of the Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Life stamp set on the top of the card front in Tuxedo Black Ink.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bear image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Colors Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words SAB Host Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a strip of You’re A Peach DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bear image from the Joyful Life stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as the card. I adhered a panel of You’re A Peach DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
