For the Love of Truffles

Happy Thursday, readers! I think the list of women that don’t like chocolate would be really short. Unfortunately, fortunately, I’m not on that list! Ha! Our pal and guest on today’s blog, Sandy Allnock captures this love so well with a bit of Copic coloring on today’s blog. Enjoy!

Enabler alert! If you are inspired by this video this is a great time to try some Copic Markers! The sale isn’t going to last much longer!

Hello crafty friends! It’s Sandy Allnock here with another little bit of coloring fun. It’s almost Valentine’s Day – are you ready yet? Got something for your sweetie? Or better yet, have you dropped enough hints for your sweetie to know what treats you’re hoping for? *grin*

For today’s card, I put some of my favorite treats on a card – truffles! Maybe these are cupcakes, but I’m going to picture them being deep dark chocolate truffles from Cupcake Royale in Seattle! Oh man. They make the most delectable treats! Anyway, I digress, it’s so easy to get distracted by sweets! My card is a round one using Lacey Circle dies, and uses the Labeled with Love stamp set made right here at Simon Says – such a fun set with not only Valentine sentiments but lots of loveydovey fun too – enough to make it a go-to stamp set for all year round. And why not, when there’s chocolate truffles to be had? It’s always chocolate season!

Dark Chocolate ink, then rubbed Schoolhouse Red onto it – not only did it create the supersoft XO, but the moistening of the paper with all that ink makes it feel all velvety soft! Perfect for a card for a honey.

  1. Those truffles look good enough to eat straight off the paper! I’m a sweets kinda girl… and chocolate is the best!

  2. I love how you made the shaped card and the wood look on the heart. And those truffles look so delicious. I would pick those for a chocolate treat and I also like sweet tart hearts for Valentine’s Day.

  3. Those truffles look soooo yummy!!! Now I need some chocolate!! Lol. I love watching you color!! U are sooo talented!!!

  4. I have to be different & say my favorite part of this video is finding out how to make this die into a card. With the trim around the edge, I had no idea how this could be done until watching the video!

  5. Wow, I just learned so much from this video! I never would have guessed the card background started off as white cardstock…the red coloring is so deep! TFS!

  6. Really love Sandy’s Valentine Truffle card! Gosh it’s sooo hard to choose which Valentine candy I like best but I do have to say ANYTHING with caramel and milk chocolate!
