Welcome to Stampin’ Addicts‘ latest blog hop, celebrating the brand-new catalog from Stampin’ Up! I hope you’ve got your copy standing by as you visit each blog on the hop. I’m just the 2nd stop, so if you started at the beginning, you’ve come from Escape2stamp and enjoyed Adriana’s projects using the hostess-only set Ain’t Love Grand. I love the artwork in this set, and Adriana’s projects are stinkin’ cute, aren’t they?
Here at Heartfelt Inkspiration, I’m doing one of my favorite things for a hop: challenging myself by using only one stamp, Triple Treat Flower. The fact that different areas can be punched out means a surprising amount of versatility. In fact, the only reason I have just three projects is because I ran out of time — not ideas!
Your attention, please! I always love comments on my posts, but during this hop, I’ll be drawing a lucky winner to receive this very stamp! Comments left from now until the end of Sunday (midnight Central) will be eligible for this blog candy, but only from non-demonstrators, please, and you must reside in the U.S.
To keep your stop short and sweet, I am omitting recipes for the projects — check back next week for the complete stories! Click to enlarge the photos, please.
I designed this card for a stamp camp a couple of weeks ago, after the stampers asked to use Stampin’ Pastels. I confess that I still had the original set from my Starter Kit when I joined Stampin’ Up! six years ago, looking neglected and sadly full of mostly retired colors. After brushing up on the Poppin’ Pastels technique, I decided to order a fresh new set — with all the current core colors! I hope you enjoy Poppin’ Triple Treat!
Have you seen the Spanish supplement to the the SU! catalog — Celebrando Creatividad? You should, even if Spanish isn’t your primary language! There are stamps not in the “big” catalog, and different samples, too! I was smitten with a sample using the exclusive hostess-only set Posy Punch and created my version here: Triple Treat Drama.
I guess I’d call this a WOW project — at least, that’s what DH said when he saw it. Then he asked, “What is it?” So I call it a Triple Treat Cone Tree for a vintage, shabby Christmas tablescape. I started making a Petal Cone, but something was calling me to turn it upside down, and here you are. I used my custom-blend embossing powder (part silver, part gold) to arrive at a pewter-like finish. Wouldn’t it be cool if Stampin’ Up! offered that? Hmmm.
I enjoyed having you with me — I hope you were inspired! You’re now on to the next stop on the hop, Trina’s Stamps and Whiskers, Count me as someone who said “Huh?” when I first saw the set she’s using, Many Mustaches, but she’s made a believer out of me!
