Birdbrain Chocolate Box

I found this digi stamp company after seeing a card on the lovely Jules blog, of course I had to get the chocolate one, it would appear that no matter what I can't stay away from chocolate. The sentiment was included and I think is a perfect one and is probably by life mantra lol.

I did do something I never ever do though and colour the image without knowing what papers I was going to use, I used to colour this way when I first started and then struggle to find papers to match which is why I changed but I was so eager to colour this one that I didn't even think about it. Luckily I had these papers in my snippet folder and they kind of match, well enough to get away with. I used the stampin up card which is a lovely colour but I always get the name confused with the pti version so I'm not sure if this is correct.

Chocolate a la Mode

I can't believe that this stamp was the start of my fascination with all things mft. I love anything chocolate related and had seen this stamp on a card and I knew I needed it. I looked in the UK but nowhere had it in stock so I decided to try ordering online and I had to order over $75 to qualify for free shipping so I added a few other items to my order and pressed to pay and I noticed that there was a charge for sales tax, I checked and discovered the store was in Florida and so an addiction was born lol.

Uptown Audrey

I've used this stamp before but I've never paper pieced her dress, I love paper piecing so I'm not sure why I hadn't. I went for a cas style and used this card by Amy R as my inspiration.

I'm entering the snippet challenge as the card and papers were left over from another project.

Bellisima dress again

Of all the papermania stamps I have ever bought this has to be my favourite and most used, it is so easy to paper piece and I'm not even sure I have ever coloured it completely lol. I used very different papers to last time as the lady I made it for loves green, the stripes are also across rather than diagonal although I think I prefer them diagonal.

I've used black card from my snippet draw so I'm off to enter the playground challenge, I'm not a very good playmate at the moment because I don't seem to be using any snippets, hopefully I can resolve that soon.

Mini Cards Set 4

This is the last set of these mini cards for a while at least, I have enjoyed making them but I really need to get back to all the birthday and christmas cards I need to make before I discover it is Christmas eve and I still have a hundred left.

For this set I have made 6 cards as the stamp set had 6 images and I wanted to use them all, I've used a Stampin up hostess set from the last mini catalogue that I ordered from ebay.

Papers: "Paris Girl" Carte Bella
Dies: square, oval, rounded rectangle and rectangle staxs all MFT
