Sweet Like Chocolate

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for your wonderful comments. It's an honor to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

For today's projects I've colored one of my favorite stamps, the Blended Bloom from Stampin' Up! with Melon Mambo and Skin Tone Blendabilities markers. They inspire visions of chocolate for me, hence the title of the post. See what I did there?

Both are gifts for Lynn who last week joined my Creative Crew. She had included the stamp and Blendies in her Starter Kit so I wanted to create something really special that she can use for inspiration.

 For her card I popped the single bloom up on a panel of Crumb Cake card embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing folder. I created the the banner by stamping the greeting with the Skinny Mini Alphabet and popped that up too before adding a few Basics Pearls.

After creating a large gift box from more Crumb Cake card I cut a piece of Very Vanilla big enough to cover the front and all four sides of the box, then randomly stamped the Blended Bloom with Memento ink and colored with the blendies.

I then trimmed it to size and adhered the panels so that the finished box looks as if it's wrapped in the design, but then I forgot to take photos of the sides. Oops! I've kept each of the four corner squares and will use them for another project, so nothing goes to waste :)

I'm so honored that Lynn chose to join my team and would be equally honored if you would too. Now is a GREAT time to join Stampin' Up! because the launch of the new Seasonal Catalog is coming up, as well as Sale-A-Bration! I've had a sneak peek at the goodies and they are not to be missed!
