Sending More Sunshine

Heart's Delight Cards, Timeless Tropical, Sending Sunshine, 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, Stampin' Up!

I didn't want my baby girl to feel slighted when I sent her husband his card, and she's a bright, sunshiny yellow kind of girl so this was perfect.

I know her favorite fruit is bananas (gag) but I didn't have any banana stamps or dies, and besides, pineapple is tastier anyway, right? 😁

I borrowed the greeting from last month's Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit. And yeah, I fussy cut the greeting. I do like the CAS look of this card, with the bold pineapple being the focus and a simple embossed background.

New Catalog, New Store, and a New BONUS!

Heart's Delight Cards, Love of Leaves, Bonus Days Promo, 2020 Aug-Dec Mini, Stampin' Up!

Things are happening all over today! First of all, the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog (formerly called Holiday Catalog) launches today, as does my personal deal for you .... order any new bundle from the Mini in August, and I will send you a card kit* to complete at home.

The other big news is Stampin' Up! has updated our online store, which starts at 9:00 a.m. Eastern,  and there are awesome new features! You can read a little about it HERE (don't worry, it's a short read). Please make sure if you want to shop with me, that I am selected as your demo. If you have saved the link to my online store, it should be automatic, but you will need to sign again in the first time.

Now here's another bonus!

One of the features in my newly renovated online store is a shareable wish list. WOOT! If you fill out your wish list and share it with me BY AUGUST 11th (one week from today), I will email you a Bonus Days coupon code good for $5 off your purchase. The coupon code is only good through the end of August, but that means you can get $5 off your bundle! NOTE: I have a limited supply of codes, so don't wait until the last minute. Once they are gone, I can't get any more.

How's that for a sweet deal? Send me your online wish list (from my store), I will email a coupon code for $5.00 off, order a bundle FROM THE  NEW MINI before Aug. 31, and I will mail a card kit* to you! How cool is that?!

Heart's Delight Cards, Love of Leaves, Bonus Days Promo, 2020 Aug-Dec Mini, Stampin' Up!

*Card kit includes pre-cut materials with instructions to make FOUR cards, and includes envelopes. You supply the stamps, ink, and adhesive.

This card is dedicated to all my lovely stamping friends and customers, whether we have stamped together in person (oh, how I miss that!), or never met face-to-face but have become long distance friends. Thank YOU for being a happy part of my life!

Whiskey Business

Heart's Delight Cards, Whiskey Business, 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, Stampin' Up!

My son-in-law is a truly awesome handyman. I don't think there is anything that guy can't do if he sets his mind to it. His latest project has been turning their downstairs den into a media room/man cave/bar. He's a tile setter by trade, which has come in very handy with their home renovations.

He is also a man that appreciates a fine adult beverage on occasion, and as soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew I had to get it. Pairing it with the tile pattern in the In Good Taste DSP was a no-brainer.

Heart's Delight Cards, Whiskey Business, 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, Stampin' Up!

I don't know if he has a fancy decanter for his whiskey, but my daughter did say he had gotten some fancy glasses. I thought the gold cord and monogram with their last initial added some class. 😆 Anyway, I just wanted to send a little sunshine his way and let him know I think he's a swell guy.

  • You can create and share wish lists.
  • Inventory status information will show you what items will be retiring soon, have low inventory, or are backordered.

Beautiful World is a 13 piece cling stamp set and has coordinating 10 piece World Map Dies which, of course, you can bundle and save 10%. They are part of the World of Good Suite found on page 24 of the annual catalog. This suite is absolutely perfect for scrapbook pages, masculine cards, or wishing someone well as they go off on new endeavors!

Heart's Delight Cards, Beautiful World, 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, SRC - Beautiful World, Stampin' Up!

My first card is a simple yet elegant Thank You. I used an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker to ink up just the thank you part of the greeting. The quill was inked (Crumb Cake) with a sponge dauber and then edged with the Early Espresso marker.

Now I have to admit, those ink spots are not part of this set. I had to borrow them from Forever Fern, because I just knew that if I was trying to use a quill and ink well, I'd be leaving spatters of ink behind!

I love the texture the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder makes, don't you? It takes a plain background from boring to beautiful.

My next card could be for a young adult striking out on their own, a newlywed couple, or even someone starting a new job.

The World of Good Specialty DSP and Brass Foil Sheets sure make the card interesting! I liked how the brass curlicue above 'Adventure" mimics the shape of the A. And the texture from the latitude/longitude coordinates behind the globe also adds more interest. Lots of details on this card!

And, because I had an "opportunity for embellishment" (aka oops) just as I was finishing the card, I added silver Metallic Pearls, which blended perfectly with the Seaside Spray cardstock.
