 Sending Smiles Stamps & Dies 


The Stampin' Up! Catalog is filled with many fantastic examples and samples of cards.  You can find the card from which I copied on Page 26 of the 2023-24 Catalog.  
I did add two extra layers, and basically it is about the same as the one the SU designer made for the catalog.

Recipe:
  • The 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 base of Parakeet Party is scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Boho Blue layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The piece of Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper is 5 x 3 3/4.
  • The Basic White is cut from the largest of the rounded rectangle die from the Nested Essentials Dies.
  • The flowers are stamped with Daffodil Delight & Night of Navy centers.  The leaves are stamped with Parakeet Party.  Both cut out with the Sending Dies.
  • The large word, "Sending", is cut out with Basic White that has been added to a piece of a Foam Sheet, and the Night of Navy "Sending" is cut out and added to the large white "Sending" with a Fine Tip Glue Pen.
  • The "Birthday Wishes" are stamped with Night of Navy on a 1 7/8 x 1/2 piece of Basic White.
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.

 Country Bouquet for my February 2024 Creative Therapy Classes
I used the Most Adored DSP for this card, and by cutting it at an angle you get to see both sides of the paper.  So many possibilities so little time.  This paper is FREE with an order of at least $50.00 during Sale-a-Bration until February 29, 2024.

All will be making this beautiful Valentine's card at my February 2024 classes.  Once again, I am excited to share.

Recipe:
  • The Real Red base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • The 5 1/4 x 4 piece of some Most Adored DSP is cut on a diagonal and adhered to the Real Red with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • The next 4 5/8 x 3 1/4 Real Red layer is the base for the 4 1/2 x 3 1/8 Basic White.  
  • The Basic White is stamped with Mossy Meadow, Granny Apple Green, and Real Red inks.
  • I made stripped hearts by using one of the heart stamps from the Country Bouquet set, Real Red ink, and Basic White cardstock.  I punched the hearts with the Country Bouquet punch.
  • The second heart is punched from the Most Adored DSP.  
  • The red glimmer heart is from some retired SU paper.
  • All done and remember to decorate your envelope.

 Softly Sophisticated Bundle for my February 2024 Creative Therapy Classes

When I was looking for ideas for my February 2024 classes, I came across Jamie's card on Pinterest. I followed the path to Jamie's blog, Stamp it up with Jamie, post of 12/6/2023 and you can see her card Here.
The Softly Sophisticated Bundle is free with a $100 order and the Softly Stippled DSP is free with a $50.00 order during Sale-a-Bration until February 29, 2024.  Free is wonderful.

Recipe:
  • The Shaded Spruce base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Calypso Coral layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Basic White layer is 5 x 3 3/4.  I dry embossed this piece with the new Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder.  After that, I used a Blending Brush to add some Calypso Coral ink, starting from the bottom, to create an ombre look.  I adhered this piece to the Calypso Coral with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • I used a piece of Basic White, a piece of Softly Stippled DSP and the largest of the Tailored Tag dies to cut out two tags.  I also used the same dies to cut out a Calypso Coral tag reinforcer to add to the Basic White tag.
  • The Basic White tag is stamped with Shaded Spruce and Calypso Coral ink.
  • I adhered the two tags together and added them to the card front with Dimensionals.
  • I threaded some Natural Trim through the two tags and tied it together with White Twine from the Bakers Twine Essentials Pack and made a bow. 
  • I stamped words from Crafting with You in Shaded Spruce on Petal Pink and punched it out with a 1 3/4" Circle Punch and added it to the card with Dimensionals.
  • All done, and remember to decorate your envelope.
