Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop: Timeless Talk

It's time to celebrate the 2013-2014 New Catalog Stampin' Addict style.  That means a blog hop!  Since this is stop #1, you may have landed here directly.  Or since everyone is linked in a big giant loop, you are more than likely visiting from Deb's Heartfelt Inkspriation.  I love what she did with that Beautiful Baroque Stamp and I'm very happy I already have it so it doesn't increase my wish list. If you lose your way, visit Stampin' Addicts for a complete list of the participating blogs or to chat it up.

If you are a regular here on my blog, (and if you aren't, why not?) then you already know how much I LOVE the new catalog.  There are so many fabulous new stamp sets and embellishments.  So it was hard to choose just one to share with you today.  But I did and it's Timeless Talk.  This set features three old fashioned images with cute little sayings to go with each, plus a little conversation bubble.  I'm featuring three cards today: one with each image and matching greeting.  Click on any image to get a closer look. 


My first card features a fun, old high-wheel bicycle.  I'm certainly thankful not to have to ride these anymore. But I do love the image with the flourishes in the wheels and the cute, "Thanks. . . BIG time!" greeting that goes with it. I added a bit of Modern Melody Designer Series Paper (which is just the perfect paper for this stamp set by the way) to the card too.  And notice the cute little brads on the wheels?  So fun!

I just love this old fashioned telephone.  I don't know if kids today would even know this is a telephone but it reminds me of my favorite period pieces on PBS.  I also love the little "Hello there!" greeting that goes with it.  I also added a strip of a different print from the Modern Melody Designer Series Paper and an image from the new set Background Builders on the side.  

The third image in this set is a gramophone.  I love that it has the "Happy Birthday to you!" surrounded in music notes like it's coming out of the giant speaker. I paired it with another bit of Modern Melody Designer Series Paper and the same image from Background Builders as before. 

I hope you have enjoyed this look at Timeless Talk.  I will be posting more details about each of these cards on my blog throughout the next week so be sure to check back.  Now it is off to Carmen's Stamping Addiction and her wonderful creations with the new Perfect Blend Stamp Set. Happy Hopping!

Beautiful, Paula. I love how the papers match the movement in the antiques--what they would do if they were working!
