A Chocolate Affair

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's Stamp of the Month, which is called A Chocolate Affair, a set of 16 stamps.

For this blog hop, we have approximately 60 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's Stamp of the Month and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do -- just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

If you came here from Jen's blog at Roxybonds, then you're in the right place!

Here are my creations using this versatile stamp set:

This first creation is a pillow box gift box.  I haven't decided if I'm going to put candy inside OR a gift card hidden in some candy or ... or .... or .... I used some 3D foam tape under the stamped candy images to give them some dimension.  I stamped the candy in Chocolate ink and then colored in the swiggles with our Sorbet marker.  The frame comes from our Frame Flair stamp set which was stamped with Sorbet ink.  I also random stamped the chocolate image on the strip of Chocolate cardstock to give it some dimension.  Finally, I cut a strip of Bronze Shimmer Trim to give it some sparkle.

I have SO been into mini cards lately.  I love these tiny cards because they can be slipped into a lunch bag or gift bag or a coat pocket and be a wonderful little surprise.  I used our brand new Frosted paper pack for the background of the card.  I stamped the candy image and the sentiment using Chocolate ink.  I added 3D foam tape under this candy as well to give it some dimension.
