New Stampin’ Up! Bundle Alert: Sending Smiles in Sweet Sorbet
When I first saw the Sending Smiles bundle in the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue, I knew I wanted it. This bundle has bold images that pair well with the amazing sayings in this stamp set. And there are die cuts to cut out the flowers, stems, and more.
You can see that there are a variety of flower stems and flower heads in the Sending Smiles Bundle. And there are matching dies for all of those pieces. So you can pop up all the elements on your card or just some of them like I did with the flower heads on this card. Notice also the amazing large “Sending” dies. They are meant to be layered together for an awesome element. And the sending pairs together with all of the sentiment greetings. In addition there are two label like dies that fit all of the sayings. And speaking of sayings…look at all the sentiments! I’ve added a close up picture of the sentiments in the Sending Smiles stamp set so you can see the variety.
There are sentiments for birthday, encouragement, good luck, sympathy, or just saying “hello” like I did on this card.
Stamping Tip & Technique
One tip or technique I would suggest when you use the “sending” dies is to use Adhesive Sheets. You just attach the Adhesive sheet to the back of the cardstock or paper you are going to use and then cut out your die as normal. Then when you remove your die, you have a sticky die cut (almost like a sticker) to add to your card or project. And you can add it quickly and easily without liquid glues or glue dots. See all of the products I used on this card below.
Another tip I have for the “sending” dies is to use an alternative the dot over top of the “i” rather than fiddle with the little tiny die cut dot. On this card, I used a Matte Black Dot.
The colours on this card are Sweet Sorbet which is one of Stampin’ Up!’s brand new ‘In Colors’ for 2022-2024.

I used the Sweet Sorbet colour on the flower heads as well as the Designer Series Paper. I paired the Sweet Sorbet with Pale Papaya for the flower centres and the label for saying. And I used Granny Apple Green ink for the flower stems. I used Basic Black cardstock for the “sending” die cut and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink for the greeting. I love the pop of the black against the Sweet Sorbet colour. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to get links to all of these items in my online store.
