Sending Smiles

Stampin Up Sending Smiles

Last week I showed you the new InColors and promised to post one of the cards I made using them.   All of them are rich and bright colors. They are just beautiful and I love every single one.

I used a new bundle that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2022/2023 Annual Catalog called Sending Smiles.  It has a set of coordinating dies called Sending Dies.  The stamp set has some bold flowers and stems along with a large word that says “Sending” and eight other sentiments that go with it.  For example, Sending Smiles Across The Miles or Sending A Note Of Thanks.  There is pretty much a sentiment for every occasion in this set.

To make this card I first embossed a piece of Basic White card stock using the Gingham Embossing Folder.  I adhered that to a piece of Tahitian Tide card stock and a Starry Sky card base.  I stamped the flowers using Sweet Sorbet and Orchid Oasis ink and cut them out using the coordinating dies.  I stamped the leaves in Parakeet Party ink and cut them out too.  The die set includes one die that cuts out the word “Sending” as well as a background to that die.  I cut the background out of Basic White card stock and the word in Starry Sky.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder.  Then I cut it out using a sentiment die included in the Sending Dies.

You will be able to purchase these beautiful InColors as wells and the Sending Smiles Bundle on May 3rd.  If you can’t wait you can join my Stampin’ Up!® team and purchase them in your Starter Kit.  I can’t give you the links to purchase these items until they go live on the 3rd.

2022/2024 Stampin’ Up!® InColors

One of my favorite things about getting a new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog is getting to see the new InColors.  In case you don’t know, Stampin’ Up!® introduces five new colors every year called InColors.  These color are available for a two year period.  After that, they normally disappear (although occasionally Stampin’ Up!® brings them back with a color refresh).  Without further ado here are the new colors:

Orchid Oasis

Parakeet Party

Starry Sky

Sweet Sorbet

Tahitian Tide

Aren’t they just beautiful?  Beginning May 3rd, you will be able to buy all these colors in inks, ink refills, card stock, Stampin Blends, Stampin Write Markers, ribbons and more!  The best thing about being a demonstrator is I was able to order then on April 1st.  They are even prettier in person!  You are going to love them all (but I think my favorite is going to be Orchid Oasis!)!

Surgery Update:  I was able to get up the stairs with Rob’s help yesterday.  It was so nice to be able to look at the new products I received on Tuesday and make a couple of cards using them.  My favorite color is the Orchid Oasis.  It is just beautiful but the best thing about this set of colors is they all go so well together!  I love them!  They are bright and rich colors and just gorgeous!  I’ll post my cards using them next week!
