Stamp with us challenge #3

Over at Stamp With Us they have set their next challenge. It’s a colour challenge and it’s Chocolate. It’s one of my favourite colours.

I have created something simple. I have used the stampin’ dimensionals to raise the sentiment.


I used chocolate chip card stock and whisper white to stamp the image and sentiment on. The stamp used is from level one hostess set called ‘A little bit of happiness’  I punched a flower out of whisper white and a smaller one for the middle. The bottom of the card was punched with a scalloped edge punch.

Stampin’ Up! Layout

I have had a go at creating a layout with all Stampin’ Up! products. Igot carried away with the stamp sets… I used 3 of them.

Pocket silhouettes, Garden Whimsy and A tree for all seasons.

2009-creations-0432009-creations-0442009-creations-0452The papers that I used were Whisper White, green galore and Chocolate Chip. The designer paper for the circle is from Rainbow sherbet. The inks are Green Galore and Chocolate Chip.

I used two sheets of A4 paper to make the just under 12×12 size that I needed. The circle was cut free hand after using to plates to draw round and get the right size. I inked the edges with Chocolate Chip ink, as I did with the edges of the photo. What is great is that I was able to stamp with the inks on my photo as well.
