SOTM Bloghop August 2013

Welcome to the August SOTM Bloghop!  This month we are featuring "A Chocolate Affair", a set of 16 stamps.

This bloghop is a big circle, meaning you can start viewing the blog posts by participating consultants at any point along the way.  You've probably come here from Melinda Everitt's Blog.  If you get lost along the way, there is a list of the 59 consultants at Helen Onulak's Blog.

I love this stamp set and can see many possibilities for it!  I designed a "sweet" little card that I think can be used for multiple occasions.

Products I used:

ProPlayer Paper Packet
Black Cardstock
White Daisy Cardstock
White cardbase measuring 5.5" x 4.25"
Ruby Chevron Ribbon
Bitty Sparkles
Sparkles Clear Flourishes - Small
2" Scallop Punch (retired)
Chocolate Ink Pad
Ruby Ink Pad
Ponderosa Pine Ink Pad
Tombow Adhesive

The chocolate-dipped strawberry was created by stamping the image once in Chocolate, once in Ruby, and once in Ponderosa Pine.  Then I cut out the red berry part and the green stem and glued them onto the brown berry stamped image.  I then cut the three-color image as one unit.  I did the same technique on the cupcake.

The rest of the card was layered.  If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I'll get back to you.

Now hop on over to Pam Jarrett's Blog to stay on the Bloghop trail.  Remember "A Chocolate Affair" is available only during August.  Check with your consultant or click here to see how you can get yours for FREE this month only-a very sweet deal!

Thanks for stopping by!  Nancy
