Quirky Stamp it, NO Digi's!!

Quirky Craft's Challenge has started over on the Quirky Challenge blogg right now! Hope this has gone live, coz I'm not here and I've left it up to Mr Blogger! It's Cazzy's turn to set the theme, she's been very busy, we have a NEW Sponsor, Crackerbox Palace and they are generosity sent the Design Team members some fab stamps to use and will be providing all three prizes for this challenge! It'll be the first non digi challenge for ages! The Challenge is...

Stamps I used
Life is a Quirky Box of Chocolates"  
Chocolate & Cream 
With No Digi's, Only Stamped Images!

You can use any chocolates stamped, drawn, made of Fimo, die cuts, punched, hand cut or maybe real chocolates on your project! No stickers! And to use the colours chocolate and cream. AND if you stamp your chocolates and sentiments we want to know the make and name of the stamp, with pictures of the stamp too please! Tell us what you did, how you made your chocolates. Remember!

 Here's my creation, but trust me, we have some super designs made by our lovely Guest Designers! (and the rest of the team)
I've used all the stamps from our sponsors, (inside and out) plus Jam Tilda from my stash! I've also used Die-Cuts, from Tim Holtz, Xcut, Woodward and Martha Steward punches, to make flowers and butterflies, nine brads, some ribbon,  a pin with tiny beads added and a Shrink Plastic ticket, which was on a freebie sheet from Paper Craft Inspirations Magazine last year.  The strawberry chocolate has been 3D-ed. On all the stamps I used Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo Distress Ink, clear embossing power and zapped them with my heat-gun.
I used an 8x8 card from Papermania 300gsm. The papers I've used are My Minds Eye 'Signature suite'. A bargain I brought back from USA three years ago. 12x12 60 unique designs, three sheets of each design, $24.99 down to $6.88 and my real favourite, 'The Mariposa Stack' 48 sheets12x12 half with glitter and foil, aprrox £15 from The Range, about two years ago. The cream and brown card is  Bazzill Basics and also some cream hammered conqueror paper, left over from the wedding, over four years back, so, I've really been digging through my stash! To colour the sentiments, Tilda and the chocolates I used Promarkers. All that's left now is for you to pop over to Quirky Crafts and Join in! Hope to enter this into some
