This one is made using the diamond pop out template from BCE and deco lectable stamp set. We also used the Krystal Tips alphabet.
This one is using the plain alphabet over stamping witht the chocolates and glazing, we also masked some of the chocolates to make it look like it was half eaten.
This is the inside of the box, we have used Promarkers to colour and Sepia Accents on two of them, and Glossy Accents and Pinflair Snow dust on two to look like coconut.
These next cards are all made using the stamp set Chocolate Innocence. This one is one I made on Create And Craft and also for a class, (makes you feel hungry)
This is another quick card we did in class using the skating scene and Martha Stewart punches. We also used a  B C E template to make the Base card

Gold Christmas

 This is another version of the Blue Christmas but using Vintage Photo distress ink instead.

Blue Christmas

I made this card for the Dabble day at Kim Suttons (B C E ) And it was a huge success so i put it on you tube yesterday (hope you all like it ).  It was made using the new shape packs of cards we have just had made which consists of a scallop circle and a smaller circle and envelope. I scored the scallop in half to make the base, stamped the house scene on front with stormy skies and using a water brush added colour by dragging the ink from the lines. i stamped the Happy Christmas with same ink. Then used tumbled glass to distress edge and stamp snowflakes all around image . to finish off i added glossy accents and glitter, and some martha stewart snowflakes.  It is a very quick card to make .

Chocolat au Parissienne

Hi stampers (bloggers) oooo get me, im learning very slowly. Anyway im on tv on tue create x craft at 11 i think, and guess what the new set is mmmmmm chocolate well you can imagine what its like crafting with choccy stamps.  You get mighty cravings lol. We came back from Paris on tue so im still inspired by all things french and had to incorporate it into the chocolate set.  So here is a card i've just finished made using the new set and krystaltips alpha and a stamp i picked up in Paris i glazed the letters after stamping over them with the chocolate stamps.  It looks good enough to eat mmm.
