Happy Friday. Boy, it’s been a while since I logged on to my blog. Glad to report that I finished my dayshift training and I’m back to my normal nightshift routine. One of the Nurses who precepted me was soooo kind and supportive…..I had to make something for her:) She mentioned to me that she drinks a glass of chocolate milk every single morning. I took that statement and got to stamping yesterday.
It felt so nice to walk into my stamping studio. Isn’t it fun to stamp with no deadlines, and just for the simple reason of creating something handmade for someone? It was just what I needed after three weeks of no stamping.
This is Beate’s wsc104 flipped from vertical to horizontal layout. It just worked better for me so I could have a little chocolate surprise inside of the card. The card base is Real Red with a layer of Chocolate Chip, and a little scalloped strip created from a Treat Box and my scallop edge punch. Added some Real Red Polka-dot Grosgrain ribbon. Difficult to see, but there is Crystal Effects to the stamped chocolate image and to the outer Creamy Caramel circle.

Here is what I came up with for a daily chocolate milk drinker. Using two Treat Boxes, I adhered them together, created a center handle, and embellished to coordinate with my card.
I think this turned out super cute. Who wouldn’t love some chocolate syrup packaged ever so nicely? It’s almost too cute to use in my opinion:)

I added a simple chipboard tag. I punched a 1-3/4″ circle out of the same box to continue the pattern to the tag. I applied Real Red Craft ink to the “4u” chipboard pieces and attached to tag base using Crystal Effects as my adhesive.
I hope you enjoy looking at my chocolate creations:) Just another fabulous use of the Treat Boxes. Have a wonderfully sweet weekend.
