Things I Love for Mojo Monday!



Stampin'Up!s Things I Love set is such a fun stamp set. Of course there are other images in this set besides chocolate but I felt that repeating the image in different colors was a true picture of my inner self! Can anyone else relate here?!

  • The card base is in Rich Razzleberry, an in color that will be returning as a permanent color ~ yeah! I then layered a piece of Orchard Opulence (soon to be retired) and a piece of Cottage Wall Designer Series paper. The "chocolate" image is inked in Rich Razzleberry, Chocolate Chip, and Orchard Opulence on Very Vanilla cut 1 1/4" square and layered on top of a piece of Rich Razzleberry. I cut the sentiment by hand to give it a less than perfect look. The second sentiment is cut out using the small ovall and layered over a piece of Rich Razzleberry punched with the Large Oval punch.
  • I finished the card with brads from the Fire and the Ice Brad sets.
  • The little box was cut using the Stampin'Up! Matchbox Die. The box is Rich Razzleberry and the cover is Cottage Wall Designer Series paper. The "chocolate" image was inked with Rich Razzleberry and covered with Crystal Effects to give the chocolate a shine! The image was punched using the 1" Circle punch, over the 1 1/4" Old Olive circle, and both were layered over one of the labels on the Matchbox die. The ribbon is Old Olive 5/8" Satin ribbon.

Really nice use of the sketch. This sketch is not as easy as it looks. I have already pitched one in the trash today. LOL
