FM34 Sugar and Spice Makes Everything Nice

I did it! I did it! I have been staring at the Eat Chocolate stamp set. Somehow whenever I use this set, the 2-D sideview of the chocolate is less than satisfying. Ha, I finally made something I'm happier with.

Today on the Friday Mashup, I'm using the inspirational photo as a jumping off point. I never miss an opportunity to pay homage to either chocolate or coffee! ;)


So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project featuring "A Christmas Theme".
  2. Or Make a project using the colors "Aqua, Chocolate and White".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Christmas themed project using the colors Aqua, Chocolate and White"

You might guess, I didn't make a Christmas project. Still not quite ready for it.

Here I stamped on the back of my cardstock with the chocolate image from Eat Chocolate, cut it out, and sponged it. I also added texture lines with the stamp from Sweet Scoops (stamped off). I then had some fun with embellishing.

Stamps: Eat Chocolate, Sweet Scoops, Like It a Latte; Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Island Oasis DSP; Ink: Sahara Sand, Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso, White Craft, Tempting Turquoise marker, Early Espresso marker, Versamarker; Accessories: Sponges, White embossing powder, Crimper, Itty Bitty punch pack, Dotted Ribbon border punch, Pearl jewels, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Beautiful Wings embosslit, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

These could always be Christmas Chocolates! I have only used this stamp set once and it was one of the ones I had to have.. Seems like I do that a lot with the ones I have to have. I think it looks great in this color combo and great idea to use the ice cream texture.
