Valentine Chocolate

Time has gotten away from me and I really wanted to share my Valentine Chocolate Bars.  There is not much stamping to it but I used several A•Muse products.

This is the large Chocolate bar that weighs a little over 4ozs.  I used the Bubblegum Heartbreaker Cardstock for the candy bar wrap.  It measures 6 3/4" x 8 1/2".  The border pieces are just white and black cardstock.  The black is cut 1 1/2" x 6 3/4" and the white is 1" x 6 3/4" and punched with a Fiskars border punch.  The ribbon is the Onyx 1/4" Organdy Polka-dot Ribbon..unfortunately it is out of stock but the Sugar or Bubblegum would work great too.  The heart is cut from our Heart Trio Die Set with the Bubblegum Sweetheart Cardstock.  I placed a pop dot on the bottom point of the heart and pressed it to the bow so it would stand up. 

Here is a regular sized candy bar done.  The paper is Cherry Heartbreaker Cardstock cut 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" for the candy bar wrapper.  The black cardstock is cut 1 1/4" x 5 1/2" and the white is 1" x 5 1/2".  The ribbon is Sugar 1/4" Organdy Polka-dot ribbon.  The heart is cut from the Heart Trio Die Set with Cherry Sweetheart cardstock. 

Both cards are stamped with "Happy Valentine's Day" from the Essential Elements stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

New Beginnings....2012

It is a time for new beginnings.  Have you all thought about what you want to do in 2012?  I have thought about it but am happy the ways things are right now.  I can't think of anything I want to change.  We all have those little things like lose weight, make more money, etc., etc. BUT I am talking big things.  I am content with life and just want to have a happy and healthy year.

I did get to do a little bit of creating.  That always makes me happy.  I am going to be a vendor at a weekend retreat towards the end of this month so I was working on some ideas for a Make & Take.  The retreat is to raise money for Cancer.  The card for the Make & Take is to do with Thinking of You.  They can turn their card into the lady that is hosting the retreat and the cards will be used to sell for their cancer benefit. are three designs they can choose from for their Make & Take..or they can mix it up however they like to make their own creation.

All products are from A•Muse Studios.  I used the stamp set Wild Rose.  It has the border, vine, flower and sayings all in that set.  I used Vanilla and Blackberry cardstocks.  The inks were Blackberry, Sage and Memento Tuxedo Black.  The first card also has the twinkle embellishments on it.  You can visit my website here to order any of these products.  I hope you enjoyed the cards.  I enjoyed making them.
