Welcome, New Catalog Blog Hoppers!

Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop
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!

Debra Burgin 1107 CH Poppin' Triple TreatHave 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!

    Beautiful Debra! This looks like a stamp that has endless possibilities. I love the pastels in your first card (and mine are dusty too), the layered flower in two colors on your second card, and the fun whimsy of your table top decoration with your stunning handmade pewter color. This stamp has moved to the top of my wish list now! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Debra: As usual, your creativity is in full bloom. I love the flower card, but the Christmas tree is excellent. Thanks for an opportunity to win the stamp.

  11. Nice projects. Poppin Pastels is one of my favorite techniques. Love the tree- it would look very cool as part of a center piece. Punching out part of that flower is a great idea!

  12. Pat Jandacek says:

    The poppin’ pastels is gorgeous – couldn’t have selected prettier go-together colors. Your second card is a smashing CAS imo. And I must agree with your DH about the tree – WOW! Thanks for the chance to possibly win this versatile stamp.

    That first card made me go “Ahhhhh!” Such a beautiful color combination, and I love the Stripes embossing at an angle! And the cone tree just about floored me! Yeah, wouldn’t a pewter color embossing powder be just lovely? 🙂

  34. KatheD says:

    Hi, Debra, don’t add me to the blog candy drawing because I’m a demonstrator and I totally think you SHOULD give it to a customer (I’ll just buy my own {smile}) but I couldn’t surf by without stopping to tell you how much I LOVE your first card – you’ve inspired me to try poppin’ pastels again, and your diagonal setting for the embossed stripes is completely brilliant!

  35. Debra, your projects are just adorable! I particularly liked the card with the poppin’ pastels.

  36. Sarah Wills says:

    Oh Debra I love them – and that holiday tree is just stunning 🙂

  37. Trina Caraway says:

  38. Susan Kelly says:

    Love the colors in your 1st card & such a gorgeous stamp.

  39. Tanya Boser says:

    Wow is right Deb! I really hadn’t given this stamp a second look and now I wish I had! All of these projects are awesome. Love the diagonal embossing with the Strips EF, and the Poppin Pastels color combo is yummy. Great job 🙂

  40. Carmen says:

    I love your projects!! The first card is my fav .. I think that color combo speaks to me!
