Hot Chocolate

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.

Challenge #214

Theme 'Anything Goes' 

The sponsor is StitchyBear Digital Outlet with the May 7 image prize pack. To win main prize you MUST use an Image from our store. Runner up prize for person using none store image is $3 to spend in the StitchyBear Digital Outlet. So everyone can win something ;O).

My mini team are using the digi 'Hot Chocolate' by Berry Dust this week and I have decided to make a bag for my Grandson :)

To begin with I used some pre die cut fur trees which I placed around the bottom left and around the side of the bag then finished off with some Christmas ribbon all the way round.
I added a verse I found, think it was from Splitcoasters which seemed perfect for the mug of hot chocolate.  Next I coloured the digi with Promarkers,  The marshmallow top section was embossed with White Foam embossing powder.  For the mug section I used Derwent crayons as I didn't want the smooth finish of the Promarkers or the depth of colour but to have more rustic look.  This section was embossed with clear embossing power for a real touchy feely effect.  The digi was fussy cut and attached to the bag with foam tape.
 Close up of the embossed mug and verse.
Time to die cut - I had planned on using pre cut foam letters but apart from not being able to find them I remembered they were only numbers anyway - not much use lol.  Using SCAL and my die cutter I took the easy route :) These were then coloured with a green Promarker and finished off with gold and clear embossing powders.
 Promarkers used
And there we have it, a quick project and come Christmas time when filled with a new mug, hot chocolate and a bag of marshmallows I hope one wee boy will have a happy smile on his face :) :) :) I did add some white pom-pom things for a bit of fun to represent snow and a ribbon to the top of the bag because I like bows hahaha.

  2. What a fabulous Christmas treat bag Jane. The image is great and I love how you have embellished the bag. The contents are the real icing on the cake - or rather the chocolate in the sack! Hugs Christine x

  3. I shouldn't be allowed to see hot chocolate in a mug 'cos it always sets me off and I just have to have one. This really is a fab idea though and a brilliant design. I don't think you are ever too old to receive something like this. Yum yum!

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  14. Oh my, this is just precious! I bet your grandson loved it. I love chocolate but it would be a hard choice between the bag and the contents as to which I like more :-)
    Thank you for joining in the fun at HIMCR. Good luck and I hope you see you again next week.
