CCS – Nothing’s Better than Chocolate!

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour for our Colour Creations Showcase is Crumb Cake!

Nothing’s Better Than Chocolate during lockdown 2.0, so tonight I have a yummy card to share with you!

Whether you like dark, milk, white or some other variety, there is usually some flavour that you can enjoy when it comes to chocolate. Well, my preference is dark, but this card features more of a Top Deck style block! Using Soft Suede and Crumb Cake for my chocolate layers and the Dainty Diamonds TIEF to give a bit of a classy and more exclusive effect to my block. Every piece of card to create this chocolate has been sponged around the edges to give a real depth to it. Yes, it took some time, but it is so much more effective and pleasing on the eye.

The inside is also decorated with a piece of chocolate as well as some stamping and more layered die cutting!

The piece of foil adds to the authenticity of a real block of chocolate being ripped open.

Chocolate Treats

Hello Crafters,

Anyone out there who doesn’t mind a bit a chocolate???

While shopping at Aldi recently I found these cute little chocolate bars sold in packs of 5 and they are only 40g each. A much better option than those family sized blocks right? Yes, I think so. I can’t just stop after eating one row!

I used the new Scallop Tag Topper Punch (#133324) which is available in the new Occasions Catalogue (28 Jan – 30 June 2014).

Chocolate Treat Holders     Chocolate Treat Holder

The one of the left with cupcake (Build a Cupcake Punch #121807), has the pink band around the silver card to hold it together. (See it open in the next picture).

The one of the right, was a little more fiddly to create, making it more box like at the bottom section to hold the chocolate in place. See close up picture below!

Chocolate Treat Holders

This was a more solid, but if I was make many of these I would probably opt to make the first option!!!

What a great idea for party favours or to give a work colleague on their birthday. Who wouldn’t appreciate one of these?!!!

The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo Stampin’ Ink using the Best Of Birthdays Stamp set (#132929) available for a limited time. To order online for $25.95 Click Here
