The Sending Smiles bundle is one of my favorite stamp sets in the 2022/2023 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. I think it was one of the sets we could pre-order and I definitely did. When you are a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator, you can order some of the products in the annual catalogs and most of the products in the mini catalogs a month before they become live. I am a very impatient person so I love this perk. Of course, my favorite perk is the discount I get but this one is a close second.

This card was a fairly simple one to make. I first stamped the stems and leaves at the top of a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Basic White card stock in Parakeet Party ink. Then I stamped the various flowers in Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis and Sweet Sorbet ink. I stamped the center of the flowers in Daffodil Delight ink. Next, I layered a .25″ x 4″ piece of Sweet Sorbet card stock below the flowers. Then I layered this piece on top of a Sweet Sorbet card base.
After that I used the Sending dies that coordinate with the Sending Smiles stamp set (by the way, you can save 10% by purchasing the dies and stamps in a bundle). I cut the word “Sending” in Basic White card stock and the background in Sweet Sorbet. I layered the on top of each other. Then I stamped the rest of the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink.
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.
