All You Need is Love and Chocolate!

All You Need is Love and Chocolate!

Hi friends, I hope your day is going great!

My hubby has a thing for those Ferrero Rocher chocolates and one day while I was browsing pics I saw a bench similar to this one so I used that as inspiration and created my own version.

Products Used:

HCPC-3752 – Classic Rose Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3795 – Window Box Fillers Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3804 – Heartfelt Love Sentiments Stamp Set
HCD1-7110 – Classic Rose Die
HCD1-7149 – Window Box Fillers Die
HCD1-7156 – Eyelet Oval & Basics Small Die
HCD1-7161 – Sweetheart Borders Die
HCDP1-284 – Heartfelt Love Paper Collection

HCDA1-449 – Stack and Store Daubers-Pack of 6
159723 – Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
359848 – Spellbinders Tool N’ One
173842 – Scor-Pal Measuring & Scoring Board
TSBL63 – Brilliance Ink – Pearlescent Poppy
TSMP707 – Memento Dye Ink Pad – Bamboo Leaves

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Brilliance Ink – Watering Can, 3D Lacquer, Crystal Micro Glitter, Versamark, Fern Green Embossing Powder, Versafine Black Onyx Ink and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by creating a basic box for the bench out of white card stock that has a finished measurement of 5 1/2″ wide x 2 1/4″ deep x 3/4″ tall with three 1 1/4″ circles evenly spaced.  Next take another piece of white card stock measuring 6″ x 4″ and using the outside die from the Sweetheart Borders Die cut the card stock and adhere to the base.  The arm rests are something that I quickly came up with and cut using my electronic cutting machine.   For a pattern of the bench feet click here.  Once you have all your pieces assembled in white, cover the bench with designer paper from the Heartfelt Love Paper Collection.  The Classic Rose flowers were stamped on white card stock using Watering Can ink and die cut with the matching dies before distressing with Pearlescent Poppy ink and shaping with the flower shaping tools. After the flowers were shaped they were lightly brushed with 3D lacquer and dusted with crystal micro glitter. The leaves were stamped on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Fern Green embossing powder and die cut with the matching dies before coloring with Bamboo Leaves ink. The sentiment was stamped on white card stock with Black Onyx ink and die cut with the Eyelet Oval & Basics Small Die before lightly distressing with Pearlescent Poppy ink and finally brushing dries clear glue around the edge and sprinkling with crystal clear glitter.

Have a wonderful day!  Hope to see you very soon.

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
