I made today’s card for a friend’s birthday card.  The whimsical nature of the animals are just so darn cute!  All of the animals in this Joyful LIfe stamp set are adorable.  And there are great sentiments as well.


Stampin' Up!, Joyful Life, Penguin Playmates, Highland Grosgrain Ribbon, Double Oval Punch, Jackie Beers



I mentioned at the top of the page that this image is from the Joyful Life stamp set.   This set is so much fun!  Where else would you find a bear riding a bicycle with a bunny in the basket?  The look of the blowing leaves is just an added bonus.

And the sentiments in this set fit each image as well.  If this sentiment looks familiar to you, I used it on the card I shared with you Monday.  You can see that card HERE.  The sentiment almost has a more holiday feel to it on Monday’s card.  An excellent sentiment and so wonderful that it can be used for a variety of reasons!

Paper and Color

The DSP used here is from Sale-A-Bration and from the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper.  This is my favorite sheet from that pack.  I love all of the colors. My friend’s favorite color is purple.  So this paper fit perfectly and allowed me to add it again in the bear’s sweater.

The finishing touch is more of the purple.  I used the Highland Heather Grosgrain Ribbon.  This ribbon is so pretty.  There is a bit of a silver like sparkle to it.  For the finishing touch, I punched the sentiment using the Double Oval Punch.  This is the larger of the two ovals on the one punch.  Of course it had to have a tiny bit of bling.  The rhinestone is a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel.  So it is the Freesia Rhinestone!
