Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Bunnies & Chocolates

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell.  I hail from a tiny town in the middle of the United States.

This month’s theme is Bunnies & Chocolate.

I guess I didn’t read far enough into the theme to see that it really should have been Easter-related.  Oh well – it’s not the first time I have misunderstood and yet they still let me keep hopping with them! Such great gals they are, aren’t they!

Since I don’t have any bunny stamps, I focused on the chocolate and pulled out a great set, Sprinkles of Life (139971). So, I present to you, three heaping scoops of chocolate ice cream!

That fudgy chocolate layer on the top is a bit hard to see… so here, but please… don’t lick the screen!

I stamped the image on each cardstock piece (Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and Soft Suede) using VersaMark then used the Clear Embossing Powder to get that shiny look!   I also did the same thing on the So Saffron cone.  Looks so real, doesn’t it.

But, that isn’t where the chocolate ends… oh no…  check out the sentiment I used from the Window Shopping Stamp Set (143265 ).

Seriously, does that not look like someone piped chocolate?  To create that look, I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso then very quickly covered it with the Clear Embossing Powder.  By doing that, I am able to emboss whatever color I want… in this case – chocolate!

Well, that’s it from me today!  I hope the project you’ve saaw here on my blog today has inspired you & brightened your day. You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell. Please see the list below & hop through all of the people on the list to see all our projects. You don’t want to miss any!”

🙂  Joanne
