Add a little Sunshine with Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Stamp Set


  • Bright, Sunny Florals using Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Stamp Set
  • Retiring List for the January - June 2022 Mini Catalog.  Sale begins June 1
  • Kit Collection Buy One Get One 50% Off Sale 1-30 June 2022
  • Final Day for IN COLOR Starter Kit Special

Here's a bright, sunny greeting card I created using the Sending Smiles Stamp Set and coordinating Sending Dies from the Stampin' Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. I paired it with a striped paper from the Design A Daydream 12" X 12" Host Designer Series Paper that you can earn at a discount with a $150 order.  I'm using colors in the Designer Series Paper:  Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Blackberry Bliss as my cardstock and ink colors.  I used the Sending Dies to die cut flower heads and the Sending Sentiments.  Finally, I added a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to add some flash to the card.  I love that they pick up the colors of the paper as they sparkle.  Explore more ideas for using the the Sending Smiles Bundle  from the Stampin' Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog by visiting pg. 14.    Add it to your Shopping List today! 

Greeting Card with bright stiped background for florals created using Sending Smiles Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

Today's card uses a base card of Thick Basic White Cardstock.  This was covered completely with a stiped print from the Design A Daydream Host Designer Series Paper.  Then I die cut a piece of Basic white Cardstock using one of the Scalloped Contours Dies to use as my image layer.  I stamped stems from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set onto the Basic White image layer.

I used the Sending Dies to die cut flower heads stamped in Daffodil Delight ink with Blackberry Bliss center.  Then, to create the two layers for the word "Sending," I die cut the backing out of Basic White Cardstock using the Sending Dies.  Then there is another die to die cut the lettering for the word "Sending".  Tip:  I found that backing my Old Olive Cardstock with a layer of Adhesive Sheets before die cutting, made it very easy to apply the word to the backing layer of Basic White Cardstock.

I die cut another sentiment strip using Basic White and stamped sentiments from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set in Old Olive ink to complete the Sending phrase.  To finish my card, I added some of Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels, which reflect whatever color they are added to.
