Greetings stampers, and welcome to Stampin’ Addicts‘ latest blog hop, celebrating the almost-new Annual Catalog from Stampin’ Up!  If you’re following along in the catalog, the blogs are in the same order as the sets in the Annual Catalog.  (Remember, the blog hop is a loop.  Just follow the link at the bottom of each stamper’s post to get to the next blog; eventually you’ll end up back where you started.  And if you ever lose your way, come back here and click on the banner above to see the complete lineup of blogs.)

You may have arrived from Escape2Stamp and enjoyed Adriana’s projects using Happy Day.  Beautiful projects with a stunning color combination!

My choice of Beautifully Baroque (p. 113) as my featured set is predictable:  I love to challenge myself with a single stamp done several different ways.  In this case, however, our house buying and selling activities, combined with preparation for Stampin’ Up! Convention in a few days, cramped my style a bit.  Still, I hope you see the potential for this set, part of the Eastern Elegance suite.  Click to enlarge the photos, please.

This So Sorry card was the result of a happy accident.  I stamped Beautifully Baroque in Whisper White Craft ink, then put the panel aside to dry.  When I returned to stamp and emboss the sentiment on the same panel, quite a bit of the embossing powder clung to the Craft ink — the result of the humidity in my stamp room, I think.  I loved the way it looked, and modified the design slightly so I had a bit more control over the embossing.

Debra Burgin Baroque So SorryI planned ahead to use Beautifully Baroque on some of my July stamp camp projects and swaps.  This Lion King card uses just a little bit of 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Trim to frame the central motif.  Beautifully Baroque is stamped in VersaMark and embossed with clear powder.  Such a rich look!

Debra Burgin 1307 Lion KingFinally, I must apologize for catapulting us into the winter months with this Chickadee card — not that I wouldn’t mind some cooler temps here!  This tone-on-tone stamping you see here is nice, but I stamped later versions in Cherry Cobbler to give the Real Red panel a tapestry look.

Debra Burgin ChickadeeThanks for visiting!  Now hop on over to Stampin’ with Paula and enjoy her fun and fabulous projects using Timeless Talk. Enjoy your trip!

    These are great! I love how you have used this to accent each card in a different way! Wonderful!

    Beautiful cards and it’s nice to see how the stamp can be the focus or take a step back but remain elegant just the same. The chickadee card is probably my favorite; the colors are lovely and the vellum combined with the Smoky Slate is so chic!

    Great cards, and the last one is my favorite! I sure wouldn’t mind some cooler temperatures here either – plus tomorrow’s supposed to be a doozy! I miss the little chickadees that used to in the bush outside my stamp room – the bush is gone, the chickadees moved on…anyway love the cards!
