As a chocolate lover, when I saw the new set Eat Chocolate in the Occasions Mini Catalog I knew I had to have it…

Have you seen it?  You can find Eat Chocolate on pg 30 of that Mini Catalog and it is just perfect for creating cards and treats for those chocolate lovers in your life…

I dug it out this morning and decided to pair it with one of my favorite stampin’ characters – Tess,  from the set Tote-ally Tess…and dressed her up in some Designer Series Papers to make her tres chic…

I used Chocolate Chip card stock as my base and layered on a piece of Pink Pirouette that I textured using my Big Shot and Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder…then I tied around a piece of 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon and finished with a knot…

I stamped Tess onto white cardstock and decided to dress her using pieces of Designer Series Papers from the pack Pawsitively Prints II (pg 175) – the patterns in this pack are perfectly sized for making clothes for her and you simply stamp her onto the pattern you wish to use and using sharp scissors such as Paper Snips, trim out the clothes and adhere them to the base image – I used Mini Glue Dots to do this…

Looking for Tess?  You can find her set, Tote-ally Tess, on pg 60 of the big Catalog – to complete her I used Chocolate Chip card stock to make her hair and added some little Pearls for the buttons on her shirt…cute!

I used another piece of that patterned red DSP to mat her and trimmed the two edges using my Scallop Edge Border Punch…I decided to add more Pearls to my scalloped edge to continue the theme…

Finally I stamped my chocolate image from Eat Chocolate and punched it out using Circle Punches – I matted it and attached it using Dimensionals to my card base…

I think that these two stamp sets pair beautifully and can see many more cards to be made featuring Tess and chocolate!

This new stamp set is featured in the brand new Occasions Mini catalog that is only available for a limited time…
