Sending Smiles & 2 New Designer Series Papers


Today I’m sharing a card made with the new Sending Smiles Bundle. I love the flowers in this set and the “Sending” dies are fantastic. I’m really pleased with this Bundle which is in the New 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalog launching May 3rd.

This Sending Smiles card also features 2 of the new Designer Series Papers, Pretty Prints and Tea Bouquet. The paper designers at Stampin’ Up have outdone themselves this year, they are all really nice. I can’t name just one that is my favorite as there are many that are must haves for me. As a demonstrator we are allowed to order from a limited list a month early for the annual catalog and the papers I’ve gotten are fantastic. Pictures do not do them justice. There is still time to get in on my Paper Share to receive a 6” x 6” piece of 213 different papers. Details below under the Paper Share link. For now, let’s make a card…

Let’s Get Started

  1. Fold Basic White Thick Card base in half on the score line and burnish with Bone Folder.
  2. Adhere the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper to the Bermuda Bay Cardstock. Attach to card front.
  3. With the Scallop Dies cut the third largest one out of Basic White Cardstock. Emboss this with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere to card front.
  4. On Basic White Cardstock stamp the two stems from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink. Stamp two flowers in Polished Pink Ink with a Daffodil Delight Center and one flower in Daffodil Delight Ink and a Polish Pink center. Cut all pieces out with the coordinating Sending Dies.
  5. Attach the stems to card front and then pop the flowers up with Dimensionals.
  6. Using the “Sending” Die cut it out of Daffodil Delight Cardstock. Hint: put a 4” x  1-1/2” strip of the double side adhesive sheet on the Cardstock prior to cutting out the “sending”. Makes it simple to attach.
  7. Take a piece of the Crushed Curry paper from the Tea Bouquet Designer Series Paper and cut the Sending Shadow Die out. Adhere the word “Sending” to this and attach to card front with Dimensionals.
  8. Stamp the greeting in Polished Pink Ink on Basic White Cardstock and cut out with coordination die from the Sending Dies. Attach to card front with Dimensionals.
  9. Add 3 gems to card front.
  10. Take the Basic White Cardstock for the card inside and stamp the stem in Bermuda Bay Ink in the lower corner. Stamp the flowers in Polished Pink Ink with Daffodil Delight Centers. Adhere to card inside.
  11. Flip card so the back of card base is up and stamp with one of the stamps from the Limited-Edition Stamp Set.
  12. Don’t forget to dress your envelope by stamping a flower with stem in the lower front corner and maybe add a piece of Designer Series Paper to envelope flap.

And now you have a beautiful card to brighten someone’s day.

Happy Stamping!
