Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek of the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles bundle. Today’s card is the one I made in my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon and is a stepped up version of the simple card I wrote about yesterday. I added some new 2022-2024 In Color DSP, an embossed background and die cut the flowers and sentiments. And I couldn’t resist adding a bow made from the beautiful metallic Starry Sky ribbon. You can find the currently available supplies I used in my video at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a strip of Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color designer series paper to the side of an Orchid Oasis card base. I embossed a panel of Basic White with the Pretty Flowers embossing folder and adhered it to a Sweet Sorbet mat before adhering it to the card front with liquid glue.
I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles photopolymer stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White panel and stamped the center in Daffodil Delight. I stamped the smaller flower and center in the same colors and stamped the large stem in Parakeet Party. I cut the flowers and stem out with the corresponding dies and adhered the to the card front using glue dots for the stem and leaves and dimensionals to adhere the flowers.
I cut the Sending word from Starry Sky after backing it with adhesive sheets and I cut the background from Orchid Oasis. I peeled off the adhesive sheet backing and adhered them together before adhering the word to the card front with glue dots and dimensionals. I stamped the smaller sentiment in Versamark ink on a strip of Tahitian Tide and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heated the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the short label die from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles bundle and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I die cut the tiny flowers and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue adding a Sweet Sorbet dot to the centers. I finished the card with a loopy bow made with the beautiful Starry Sky metallic ribbon!
For the inside of the card, I stamped the small stem and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles stamp set in Parakeet Party on a basic white panel. I stamped the small flower in Sweet Sorbet and the center in Daffodil Delight. I adhered a strip of DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles bundle is sure to be a favorite with all the wonderful sentiments (for every occasion!) and the bold graphic images. I love that all the images have coordinating dies and, of course I love the layered word die. Here’s a picture of the stamp set and coordinating dies.
The Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles bundle along with the 2022-2024 In Color designer series paper, dots, ink pads and card stock are sneak peeks from the upcoming 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalog and will be available TOMORROW when the catalog goes live! YAY!! I can’t wait!
Today is the LAST DAY for the 2021-1022 Annual Catalog!
It was a wonderful Annual Catalog and I’m so sad to see many of the items that have retired. But there are still items available and some at a discount. But TODAY is the last day these will be available. Also note that while some stamp and die sets will continue to be available, they will not longer be offered as a bundle with the 10% discount. So head over to my Online Store to check it out.
