So without further ado, here goes.
The contents of the box looked like this ... yum!
And then I set about crafting like there was no tomorrow. I added some Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa cardstock to the mix, as well as a few extra punches. I don't have time now, but after the prize draw tomorrow I will go into more detail of what I used, techniques etc.,
This then is what I came up with. I managed to make 5 cards and one small layout, an all time record for me as I am usually painfully slow.
The white scallops above are not a border punch, I simply used the edges of the punched ovals, but I will share more about that later.
Just look at those brads, aren't they to die for! The white paper is not a patterned paper, but the swirl stamped several times. Iwas amazed at how well that worked.
Another little scallop cheat here with the small brown borders above. They are actually the SU square scallop punch with the edges cut off and used as a border trim.
And finally, a small 8x8 layout - the perfect size to use with these gorgeous stamps!
Hope you enjoyed what I have made, and that this has inspired you for your own crafting. Thank you for joining me - I shall now go and have a long bubble bath.
EDITED TO ADD: I never did say where to comment for the blog candy, and a few people are not sure. Leave your comment here on this post, but don't worry if you have commented on the candy post. Any comments made during the right time will be put in the draw, whether it is in this post or the previous two announcement posts.
