My first card today combines a sentiment from the new Chocolate set with the coffee beans stamps from our Coffee set and the Coffee Word Die. Awhile ago I saw someone use a pencil eraser around a die cut heart to make a fun stamped heart, so I decided to try it with coffee beans and the Wavy Hearts Die Set. I taped down the heart die cut then stamped over the edges of it in a few different colors, then pulled the die cut up. Next I cut the Wavy Heart in black and embossed the sentiment from Chocolate in white, dusting the edges with white ink too for a chalkboard effect. I layered a pool party and a basic black diecut of the Coffee Word Die below then added a handcut butterfly from the designer paper I used. Perfect for spring and for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!
For my next project, I made a fun little chocolate bar treat box using the keep calm and eat sentiment from Chocolate, combined with the new Chocolate Word Die. I cut the word die from patterned paper and then coated with a thick layer of glossy glaze for an almost enamel look in real life. The arrow is a piece of resist chipboard that I sponged with distress inks.
