Stamptacular Challenge 8

Stamptacular Challenge 8 has a theme of "Oh, for the love of CHOCOLATE" - I don't know a girl that doesn't love chocolate so this week our challenge will give you an excuse to go and buy some....not that we usually need an excuse!!!! The rest of the DT have made some awesome projects, so go and check them out and join in with the fun. Also, next week we are doing a blog hop which will be loads of fun and we have some great prizes.

For my DT project I have made some decorative packaging for a chocolate bar, and just so you know, this chocolate is now long gone!!!! I have used the very pretty willow with flower basket stamp from WOJ and she is coloured with distress inks.

I used my fiskars edge punch to create the scalloped edges on the top and bottom and the paper is from my stash. The sentiment is also from WOJ and I made a little tag which is attached to the ribbon with a jump ring.

Just as a side note: I have been experiencing awful problems with blogger, as I'm sure a lot of you have, and they seem to be solved by using firefox as a browser - you can download it here. I got my blogger problems sorted then all day yesterday I had internet connection problems (unrelated to blogger), so I was tearing my hair out!!!! However, all seems to be sorted so I can now visit all of your lovely blogs once again!

Card/Paper: Pink and white card, paper from stash
Stamps: WOJ - Willow with Flower Basket and General Sayings
Colouring: Distress inks - walnut stain, peeled paint, worn lipstick, faded jeans, tattered rose, vintage photo and weathered wood.
Embellishments: American crafts ribbon, jewel
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, swiss dots folder, water brush
Thanks for looking. x
