Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

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.

Here is the link to the Facebook Live video from yesterday. I also posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and you can view it here if you prefer. I’ve included it in this post:

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!

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Here’s a simple card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles photopolymer stamp set from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. And I used all of the new 2022-2024 In Colors in making it! You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used and remember that all these products will be available on Tuesday when the 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalog launches!

I stamped the Sending sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles stamp set in the new In Color Starry Sky on a Basic White panel. I stamped the smaller sentiment below it in the new Tahitian Tide ink and the stem in Parakeet Party. I stamped the two flowers in Sweet Sorbet and used Daffodil Delight ink to stamp the flower centers.

I adhered the stamped panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat with Stampin’ Seal and then adhered the layered panel to the front of a Orchid Oasis card base. There – I got in all five of the new 2022-2024 In Colors (with a small touch of Daffodil Delight)!

I finished the card front with light Starry Sky In Color Dots. These dots are ombre, so it’s hard to tell the light Starry Sky from the dark Orchid Oasis.

For the inside of the card, I stamped little stem from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles stamp set in Parakeet Party in the corner of a Basic White panel. I topped it with the small flower in Sweet Sorbet and Daffodil Delight and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The bold new In Colors are perfect with the bold graphic flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles stamp set for a clean and simple card.

Join me for a Facebook Live this Afternoon!

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook Page at 1:00 ET this afternoon to make a card. Join me as I use the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles bundle to step this card up with a little die cutting and embossing. Look forward to seeing you then!
