My mom's cocoa packets

If you look at the previous post you will see where I think my mom got her inspiration for these adorable cocoa packets for her coworkers Easter gifts. I really love these! She said she picked up the cocoa from Michaels. I love it! Great job Mom!

Chocolate bunny swap

I was very fortunate to be a part of my upline's quarterly WOW swap. We exchanged 18 cards and this was my card. Once I started making them I realized I did WAY too much work on this, but I couldn't figure out what to go without. My dear friend Rhonda helped me piece together these cards to help me get them in the mail on time.
Here's what I did:
Stamped the bowtie from Just Jawing with Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock. Stamped the Chocolate Bunny stamp on Close to Cocoa CS with Chocolate Chip Craft Ink, clear embossed it and cut it out. I used the white gel pen to dot on the eye. I cut Top Notes in Whisper White and Crushed Curry. I stamped the grass from Inspired by Nature, on the white Top Note with Old Olive Craft Ink, clear embossed it and brayered Bashful Blue over the grass and masked the sun in the background. I used the polka dot folder on Mambo Melon and put that piece under the Top Note. I stamped the Bella Toile background stamp on Close to Cocoa card base with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and clear embossed it. The butterflies came from the new Stampin' Up Embosslits Die called Beautiful Wings. The eggs came from the Build A Bear Sizzlits Die Beary Hoppy. Other products used: Scalloped Oval Punch, Oval Punch, Mambo Melon Ribbon.
