Mini Occasions Blog Hop Stop #16

Hello and welcome to stop #16 of Stampin' Addicts Occasions Blog Hop. If you have been following along with the Hop you have just come from Stop #15 Jennifer's blog sunflowerstamper.com where she featured the stamp set "Bold Blossom" with which she did a beautiful job. The stamp set I will be featuring is called "Eat Chocolate". There are 24 stops on the hop, so find some chocolate and sit back and enjoy. The first photo is a group shot of the projects I chose to make using the stamp set "Eat Chocolate" a very fun set for us chocolate lovers.
Love this card however I'm kinda rethinking her pants. lol Here's the products I used in making this card were "Tote-ally Tess", Elegant Soiree DSP, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede CS, Black Staz-on, SU Markers and some of our tiny little pearls for the buttons on her top.
This is the inside view of the notepad and (chocolate stash) holder. The notepad holders are so simple and fun to make using SU's empty Clear Mount Cases.
My last project is a simple stack of candy bars wrapped in the DSP and Marina Mist ribbon, and a tag and you have a great little gift to give a friend. I hope you've enjoyed your stop with me, now it's time to hop on over Stop #17 Jennifer's Blog Stampin' On The Fly where she is featuring 3 different new products, "Say It Simple", Framed Tulips Impressions Folder, and Beveled Window Panes. She has done a beautiful job showcasing them. I love that new embossing folder!!! Thanks for stopping by and come back so we can "Stamp a Little Longer". Oh and Happy New Year!
