My Creative Time :: March Stamp Release Sneaky Peek Day #2

Time for another sneaky peek over at My Creative Time! I hope you are all enjoying the peeks and getting some inspiration to make something with your new stamps to link up on Friday! I'm sure there's something special in store for the link up party! ;)

For today's sneak peek, I am showcasing a stamp set called Do the Cocoa Motion
I just LOVE it!!



I saw this tutorial on you tube a while back, and I'm sure there are several people out there that have created these, so I can't take credit for it. I did personalize my sizes to fit a little bit better.

The base starts at 7 3/4 x 8 1/2". I scored the 7 3/4" side at 3 3/4" and 4 1/4".
I then scored the opposite side at 2 1/2". This will make the section that holds the hot chocolate mix.
I did use the Red Sticky Tape to make sure it would hold tight.

Supplies:
My Creative Time Do the Cocoa Motion stamp set
PaperTrey Ink Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream, and Kraft cardstock
Misc cardstock (Bazzill and Stampin' Up) from my stash
Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge (Gypsy) to hide some cuts
QuickCuts Beads Embossing Folder
Cuttlebug Divine Swirls and Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folders
Ribbon Boutique Ribbon
Recollections Pearls
Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate Mix
