Sweet Treat Blog Hop – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to be part of the 9th, annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop by Newton’s Nook Designs. The Design Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats – just in time for Valentine’s day! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

This year I decorated some chocolate boxes to give away some pralines to my loved ones. I made 2 versions, one with a cat, one with a dog.

I started with stamping and colouring Newton’s Heart and Puppy Heart stamp sets using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers: BG9, BG7, BG5, BG4, BG3, BG1, BG05, BT3, BT2, BT1, BT05, MG5, MG4, MG3, MG2, FS6. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I black heat embossed the sentiments directly in the hearts.

Then I used the Circle Frames die set to cut the base for my choco boxes: the biggest scalloped circle was the perfect size. I chose patterned paper from the Love and Chocolate and Love and Woofs paper pads.

For the top I used the stitched circle and cut it from patterned paper as the base. Then I added a smaller scalloped circle cut from vellum before popping up the images with 3D foam squares.

As a finishing touch, I added glossy accents to the noses.
