Dark Chocolate…

It’s a dark chocolate cuppy cake kind of day!  My card for the reminder post over on the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog.  The challenge going on right now is a color challenge.. Blue, Brown and Tan.  I really meant for this to be a true blue card but the new Farmhouse 8×8 pattern paper pad was hogging my desktop, crying for use,  so I went with it. Ugh!  So my card is “kinda blue”! Rolling my eyes…@@   At least I got the brown right and kraft is tan,  isn’t it?  Today it is the new tan!!! lol  Head over and create for a chance to win!

The half doily is cut from one of the pieces of pattern paper in the pad.  Hug Snug ribbon dyed with a Walnut Stain distress stain.  All the pieces are edged with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool. Instead of messing with thread for the buttonholes,  I cut a sliver of card-stock to thread the button with… glue it on the back… slick.

The cupcake die is so cool…the bottom embosses,  I used a little copic marker from the bottom up on the cupcake paper… Y28… the dark chocolate is enhanced with E40, 44,47,49.   I tried vintage shard glass glitter on the top but just didn’t like it w/the more old fashioned feel of the papers so took it off and colored it and added the button instead!  The cupcake logo is stamped on a piece of the paper from the pad too.

I used the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches Challenge blog HERE

So that’s my bit of shabby chic for today.  Wish it was healthy to eat these things for breakfast, lunch and supper!  Hey,  just stick a carrot in the top!  Carrots make everything healthy, right?! ha!  oh that reminds me of the broccoli ATC I made for a friend one year… it was a picture of a broccoli cake!  She hates broccoli! lol

I found the picture of it…hahaha… well,  I think it’s funny anyway! lol

ok – I’ll shut up and finish…

ATS Wed. Challenge and SALE!

A new challenge starts today on the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog.   Make a treat box/bag.  I have this Accucut scallop box die that is just the right size to hold two of these chocolates!  Email me if you want the name and number of the die.

I used several of the CC Designs Cutters dies…the new Leafy Branch,  Phlox Flower dies and  the others are the Leaves, Rolling Rose,  Lock and Key, Tags & Banners and Parenthesis. The “with love” sentiment is from the new AmyR Stamps Heart-y Sayings set.  The tinsel-ish looking tie is from a Teresa Collins ribbon pack.  I did edge the papers with Walnut Stain distress ink and the ink blending tool.  I rolled up the rolling rose die, glued it (video under my tutorials tab), turned it over on my desk and hit it with a rubber mallet! lol   I like the “squashed” look on top of the Phlox flower die cuts! lol

Thanks for stopping by!  Wishing you all the best this Christmas season! Take care and have some dark chocolate!
