Fresh Cuts Chocolate Dip

Stampin up fresh cuts chocolate
I'm thrilled Stampin' Up! is providing sneak peeks of the Fall-Winter Catalog (to be released August 11).  Stay tuned for another "peek" in July.  If Fresh Cuts is a sign of things to come, I'm destined to go bananas on the new catty.  Please don't miss this Fresh Cuts Special Offer, only available now through June 30.

The Fresh Cuts block stamp was inked in Chocolate Chip and stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.  The flowers and leaves were dolled up with color using Pale Plum and Certainly Celery Stampin' Up! Markers. I then clipped the corners with a Ticket Corner Punch and layered on Chocolate Chip (also clipped on the corners and used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere).  Pale Plum card stock provides the base mat along with some Certainly Celery brads as a lively accent. 

The Fresh Cuts stem image is Chocolate Chip on Certainly Celery card stock and layered horizontally on Pale Plum Card Stock.  TIP:  A Paper Piercer and Template make dressing up the corners a snap.  The card base is 4.25 x 5.5 in Chocolate Chip.  I randomly stamped the flower for a jazzy background.

The Chocolate Chip sentiment "Thank you" was aligned on Very Vanilla card stock using a Stamp-a-ma-jig (tutorial here) for perfect placement.  TIP:  Create your own designer label–I snapped out the corners with a Ticket Corner Punch to mirror the main image.  The Paper Piercer and Template also came out to play.  The final touch was a crunch of the Boho Blossom Punch on Pale Plum card stock.  I added a 1/4" circle of Certainly Celery for the center and gave it a lift on a Stampin' Dimensionals for a 3D effect.

The layout for this project was inspired by Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge 52.
