Oh, this is one of those retiring sets that will take me some time to part with . . . I have used and adored these swirly images! I am not a coffee drinker nor a big chocolate fan, but I still love the style of this set. And it's great for little gifts for those who are!
This explosion box is one I did actually a few years ago, loving the Real Red and Chocolate Chip combination. The word chocolate on the top fo the box is acheived by inking up just the one word on one of the sentiment stamps with a Chocolate Chip marker (gee, how many times have I written "chocolate" in this post?), and then stamping. This is a great way to get lots of uses out of your sentment stamps – pulling a word or phrase out here and there.
The foam was lots of fun! I used Liquid Applique here and before heating it up, I sprinkled in some red microbeads and also a dash of glitter.
The explosion box itself is a very easy template, but a cool wow! for the recipient! I added a sachet of hot chocolate powder to this, wrapped up in the Red Gingham ribbon.
Add in loads of Chocolatey sponging, and you've got a perfect gift for a chocoholic!
