Hello again everyone! Wasn't yesterday great? Well, it's time for the My Creative Time ~ Sneak Peek Week : Day 2! Today, the Design Team is showcasing the super fun new stamp set called "Do The Cocoa Motion".
So I'm back to making a bouquet . . . but this one is different . . . it's a chocolate bouquet! Who wouldn't love that?!?
The cute little bowl/vase is only $1 at Michaels!!! The pretty little bow is made from Celebrate It ~ Sheer Creations ribbon. On the inside of the bowl is some crinkled paper filler. I also threw some Hershey's Kisses in there too!!! ;)
The flowers are cut from the Flower Shoppe ~ Cricut cartridge. It's the #5 flower on the back cover of the cartridge. All of the papers are from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Chateau Lavender paper stack. Here are some close up shots:
For each flower, I changed up the patterned papers for each layer so they would all be a little different. I also inked up all the edges of the petals with brown ~ Color Box ink. For the cream colored layer in each flower, I used the My Creative Time ~ Script Type Backgrounds stamp set to stamp the script pattern with Memento ~ Rich Cocoa ink.
For the leaves on each of the flowers, I cut some tiny pieces of Celebrate It ~ Holiday ribbon. It is so gorgeous up close - beautiful gold, copper and bronze colors!!!
And the best part . . . at the center of each flower is a chocolate Hershey's Kiss with Almonds. Mmmmmmm....
At the bottom center of the bouquet is this fun little sentiment. It's actually a combination of two different sentiments. Both sentiments are from the new My Creative Time ~ Do The Cocoa Motion stamp set. The first sentiment says "The only thing better than a good friend, is a good friend with hot cocoa". To fit my fun little chocolate bouquet, I taped off the "hot chocolate" and instead added just "Chocolate" from the sentiment that says "A little Chocolate now & then doesn't hurt!" Hope that makes sense. If you've never tried altering your stamps, give it a go - it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
Here is more of a side view. Hopefully you can see the little chocolate kisses inside the bowl. Mmmmmmmm!!!! You can click on the picture to see it a little bigger.
I think this would be so fun for someone who is in the hospital or needs a little 'pick me up'. So much better than real flowers if you ask me...lol!
