There was suppose to be a Chicks & Chocolate class this weekend, but unfortunately I didn't have enough people register before the deadline. I'm going to reschedule the class for sometime in March, but thought I would share 2 of the yummy projects with you today.
Both of these projects were made with the new Petal Cone Bigz L Die (item #121810, $32.95). I overlooked this die when I first saw it in the Occasions Mini catalog, but I am truly amazed at how versatile it is!
I made the banner by cutting the large die cut into two pieces; therefore, you'll cut 3 times with your main color of Early Espresso and will have one "pennant" left over. I cut the half scallops from Blushing Bride cardstock. The pennants were embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I stamped the letters with Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White card stock, then punched them out with the 1-1/4" circle punch. The letters are from the stamp set Lovely Letters. I layered the layered onto punched circles then adhered them to the front of the pennants with dimensionals.
After I assembled the banner, I decided it needed one more thing. I sprayed the entire banner with a mixture of alcohol and Frost White shimmer paint. It adds a pretty and subtle shimmer.
I alson made one of the petal cones as it was designed. The cone is created by adhering two of the die-cuts together with sticky strip. I could not believe how easy this went together! I stamped the Bella Toile background stamp onto the Blushing Bride cardstock and embossed the half scallops with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The cone is finished off with a Vanilla Vintage Flower adornments and a selection of coordinating ribbons. I also sprayed the cone with the shimmer paint mixture.
As for that cupcake peeking out from behind the petal cone……I'm sorry to say it is no longer with us. I had planned to fix a variety of chocolate treats for this class and my kids begged me to go ahead & fix the cupcakes. They were yummy, by the way.
So if you don't want to miss out on fun classes like this one, be sure to check my class schedule regularly. There will be a Sale-a-Bration kick off party next Sunday, January 30th from 2-4pm at the Stamp Shack, 118 S. Buckeye Street, Kokomo, IN. There is no charge to attend and we will have make & takes, fabulous displays, and door prizes. Please RSVP by Wednesday if you plan to attend.
