More Than Chocolate

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today to share a card I created using
the More Than Chocolate stamp set from the shop.

With Valentine's day coming up, this is a perfect set for a simple card.
It is a smaller set but you can create so many different ideas for this card by changing up the background.
When I first got this set, I knew that I wanted to create a chocolate background to mimic the piece the
piggie was already munching on but I'd do it by hand, which turned out to be rather easy.

I just used a ruler for the pieces of chocolate and I mimicked the wrapper in the stamp image just on a larger scale.
The coloring gave it the dimension it needed to look like pieces of chocolate.


For the rest of wrapper, I didn't want to color in red because the wrapper for the pig's candy would get lost.
I chose to use a neutral color so it would stand out. Once I finished the coloring, I trimmed the A2 card panel down
by a quarter of an inch and matted it on a piece of red cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment "I Love You". I loved both sentiments, so I also stamped the stamp in a light grey on the
inside of the card along with the "More Than Chocolate" sentiment in black so it would pop.
I normally don't decorate the interior but when I do, I keep it really simple and leave space for a person to write
a cute note.

I love how this card turned out and I think that even if you weren't using it for Valentine's day, you can use it for
any other occasion as well. This little piggie is adorable so I hope you enjoyed the card.


Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!

 Hey friends...

I've got some inspiration to share today using the gorgeous Gerda Steiner designs stamp set called Happy bee-day....

It's such a sweet set, one I've used many times hehe!!


To create this card I started with a white cardstock base which I masked off an oval shape and inked up using Distress oxide ink Prize ribbon. I then removed the mask and stamped a bunch of the flower images!
