Eat Chocolate purse

A cute little bag just the perfect size to fit whittakers share pack chocolates & so easy to make view Frenchie's tutorial here.

I have used my "Eat Chocolate" stamp set so much, both in classes & for gift giving & wanted to show you some of my favourite creations using it. I love it & I hope it makes it into the new catalogue along with the Decorative Label punch (both available in the current mini). I also used the Scallop & large Oval Punches & the flower from itty bitty punches (carried over from the Summer mini). Green House Gala DSP, Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzaz & Whisper White CS to match, Silver Brads a little pearl. I love the two tone effect on the chocolate;  I inked it up in Baja Breeze ink then I used a sponge dauber with Early Espresso ink on it to apply just on the bottom of the image. The frame around the stamped image is also from "Eat Chocolate" stamp set, I just used a marker to ink up only the frame.
The chocolate slider I made for Emma on my team. I used some DSP to wrap around the lindt chocolate block with an extra cm length for the bottom which I crimped. The ribbon is wrapped around the chocolate which makes this an easy slider. There's a sneak peak in this pic of a new punch we are getting in the new Idea Book & Catalogue -just a couple of months away! I need to start inking up a few more current stamps in the meantime.....

This waterfall card is better IRL, it has the faux mother of Pearl technique for the background (Gloss CS that has Shimmer paint pounced on it using some rolled up cling wrap then brayered over once dry) a simple but so effective technique that was in our Demonstrator Impressions magazine a couple of months ago. Colours are Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip & Whisper White.

Love each of these projects. I have a block of Lindt waiting for some wrapping and think I'll go with a dsp slider as you have here. I often use your tute for the smaller Lindt bars :o)
