Hello, Today’s cards are for the Twofer Challenge this month and the word Darnell has for us is Sweets. I have been thinking hard about this challenge for about two weeks and finally an idea came to mind this weekend. I knew I had a chocolate stamp set from Verve that was going to work perfectly for the one card, but I wanted to come up with something clever to do with the melting chocolate on the second one and then it dawned on me….dripping paint. Not sure why that took two weeks to think of, I mean for peet sake it looks like dripping paint. LOL
Here are some card details: First card: U and dripping chocolate is from Verve, the Color my World is Lawn Fawn, the Colored Pencil is from Paper Smooches, and the Sweet Friend is from SU, and lots of Dimensionals too on both cards. Second card: All the stamps are from Verve except the Love and Hugs is from W plus 9. The Chocolate die-cut is from Verve as well, I have Wink of Stella on my chocolate to give it some shimmer but it doesn’t show in the photo much. I made MANY attempts with crystal Effects, but it turned into a hot mess. I colored the chocolate pieces with Copics, and the Dots EF is SU.
Here is a pic of the stamp set I used.
You have a few more days before this challenge closes! You should definitely play along! Thanks for your visits as they are so very much appreciated, Nanc’

Excuse me, I didn’t mean to get my drool on your post, Nanc’! When I thought of this prompt, I never once thought about melting dripping chocolate and now I can only ask myself, “Why DIDN’T I think of it?!” Yummo! I love it and I love your clever second design using the dripping chocolate as colorful dripping paint! Thank you for persevering to come up with these two fun designs and thank you for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #21! Hugs, Darnell

I’ve been thinking and thinking about this challenge too, Nancy, but I haven’t come up with anything. Your melted chocolate is clever and so yummy looking. Turning it into paint was even more brilliant.

Never in a million years would I have ever, in the history of ‘ever,’ thought to use that dripping chocolate for paint! That is completely brilliant! I know several people who would love your chocolatey card as much as I do. It looks delicious paired with those pretty yellows and blues. But as soon as I saw your cards in the gallery, I thought that the ‘paint’ was beyond clever! What a great way to stretch that stamp. Love it, especially in all those vibrant colors. Great cards! Thank you so much for sharing your cards at the Twofer Challenge!! Bev
