Fab Layered Card with Sending Smiles Bundle

Sending Smiles Stamp Set is one of my absolute favorites from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. And the dies are a Wow, especially with that "sending" die cut sentiment. I used one layout to make these three cards. I also used Design a Daydream designer series paper for each of these cards.  This beautiful dsp is available as a host item for having a $150.00 party (online or in-person) and it's a stack of 48 pages of gorgeous paper!

Here are the three cards I made last night:

Sending smiles three cards2

I do like the way they turned out, but I can't decide which one is my favorite.

Sending smiles blackberry and so saffron2

This layout has enough layers that several different colors can be featured. The card above features So Saffron, Blackberry Bliss, and Petal Pink.

Sending smiles pool party2

I love the soft colors in the Pool Party card above. The card front is embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. Featured colors are White, Pool Party, and So Saffron.

Below is the card I made in my FB live:

Sending smiles pink and green2

Petal Pink, Old Olive, and Blushing Bride are the colors on this card. Which one do you like best?

Watch the YouTube video here to see how to make this card:

Measurements for this card:

4 1/4 x 11" card stock scored at 5 1/2" for card base

4 x 4" card stock or dsp cut so one side is 1" shorter

2 x 5" card stock or dsp for banner

1 x 4" card stock or dsp for center front

Create a Smile with Sending Smiles Criss Cross Card

This card is sure to bring a smile to your face, or whomever you send it to. It's so simple, yet beautiful. These cards are showcasing the new 2022-2024 In-Colors - Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky, Tahitian Tide, and Sweet Sorbet.  The flower is stamped with the same colors in each or the cards - the stem and leaves are stamped with Parakeet Party, the flower is Sweet Sorbet, and the middle is stamped with Crushed Curry.

Sending smiles criss cross cards2

I've also used the new 2022-2024 In Color designer series paper.  I just love it with the polka dots, flowers, stripes and plaid patterns. 

I also added the die cut word "sending" using one of the dies in the Sending Dies. There is a die to cut the background and a die to cut the word "Sending". I show you in the tutorial how to use an Adhesive Sheet when die cutting intricate dies.  It makes it so easy to adhere that detailed die cut to your card.

Isn't that pretty? And here's a pic of the inside:

Sending smiles criss cross card starry sky open2

Here are the measurements for this card:

8 1/2 x 11" piece of card stock scored on the 8 1/2" side at 4 1/4" and on the 11" side at 5 1/2 

Watch my video tutorial to see how to cut the card stock for this card. 

 

Save the rectangle you cut out to use for your large layering circle and background for the die cut sentiment.

Fabulous Vertical Z-Fold Card With Nature's Prints Bundle

Did you know you can make a vertical Z-Fold card?  It's a neat fold and a great way to show off beautiful designer series paper. I've used products from the Sun Prints Suite for this card. Now these products aren't available quite yet, but they will be tomorrow, May 3rd, 2022! You can't go wrong with the Nature's Prints Bundle (stamp set and dies) and the gorgeous Sun Prints designer series paper! 

I made these three vertical z-fold cards today using this suite:

Natures prints three cards2

The colors in the Sun Prints designer series paper are Gray Granite, Night of Navy, Pacific Point, and Starry Sky. This paper is so beautiful!

Below is the card I made tonight on my Mystery Stamping Live. I'm loving the fern stamp included in this set.

Natures prints gray granite card2

I used the Natural Prints dies to make the floral die cuts. I then added Basic Black Baker's twine.  The ribbon is the White Frayed Ribbon which is carrying over from the Spring Mini Catalog.

And here's the inside of the card:

Here's what the z-fold with the 4 x 4" dsp on the front looks like from the side:

(Ignore the odd brown shape under the mountain fold lol.)
