5 Minute Card and Two New CPC Projects!

I hope you enjoyed yesterdays’ Petal Cone Die Triangle Box Tutorial!  I love looking at dies and stamps upside down, sideways, and finding new ways to use them!  If you missed that post, be sure to check it out HERE.

Today I’m sharing two new projects available from the Craft Projects Central Site, and a quick 5 minute card too.

Both Craft Project Central items involve chocolate.. yummy!

Here’s the first one, a scrapbook page and recipe designed by CPC team member Shelby from Craft Closet.  The recipe sounds so yummy, I may just have to make it for my DH for Valentines’ Day!


The second new project now available at Craft Project Central is a creative Love Impressions Hot Chocolate dispenser from Stampin’ With Jacque!  Wouldn’t this make a terrific gift for a co-worker or teacher?


OK… and now, my quick and easy CAS 5 minute card share for today! 


The floral image from Happiness Shared was stamped onto Very Vanilla Card Stock, and then colored with Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.

Only the lower portion of the card was embossed using a Big Shot Machine and Perfect Polka Dots Textured Embossing Folder. 

To emboss partially, insert the portion of the card stock you wish to emboss in the Textured Embossing Folder, make the proper Big Shot Sandwich, feed the cardstock only end first through the machine, and run it through the machine only until you hear the ‘thumping’ noise as you pass the edge of the card stock.

I love script stamps Smile The Happy Anniversary on this card is one of 9 fabulous phrases from the Occasions Mini Catalog called Something To Celebrate, and free when you hostess a qualifying party!

Stamps and Supplies used in today’s CAS 5 Minute Card:

Stamps:  Something To Celebrate, Happiness Shared

Card Stock:  Basic Black, Very Vanilla

Big Shot Machine and Accessories:  Perfect Polka Dots Textured Embossing Folder, Framed Tulips Textured Embossing Folder

Accessories:  Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin’ Write Markers, Mini Glue Dots

I’ve got two cards to share with you tomorrow.. hope you’ll stop back by!
