Chocolate Baroque Reader's Gallery

Hello everyone, today sees our monthly review of some of your artwork using stamps from the Chocolate Baroque range. We always love to see what you create using the stamps and like to take this opportunity to showcase your creativity on the Design Team Blog. Sadly this will be the last of these posts, as despite our requests, we have not received any contributions from you via email to add to the blog posts. The posts themselves are very time-consuming to create, searching Facebook, Blogland, Pinterest, etc., and reluctantly, we have decided that this will be the last time that we will share your artwork in this way. We hope that you have enjoyed the posts, and will continue to share your artwork on the Chocolate Baroque Facebook Group.

Seen on the Chocolate Baroque Facebook Group this month:

Marga Dounen has created two pretty floral cards:

Julie Scaysbrook has created two lovely Christmas cards this month:

Chris Offa has created some fabulous Brusho backgrounds and used one to make a card:
She then created a vibrant journal spread using her new elephant stamps, adding beading to the images:
Janny has also used an old favourite, combined with stencilled background to create this fun card:
Akkina's cards have been created using some lovely Christmas images, and this colour combination is really pretty:

Another design from Akkina, using the Russian dolls:

The soft grey colour scheme used in Lesley's card is also very effective, showing that you can create very elegant cards without using dramatic colours:

In complete contrast, Kate Currie's card has a real drama with the bold red and white and touches of green:
Shirley's beautiful blue-toned card shows off the white embossing perfectly:
We have a wonderful selection of cards from Miranda next, a stunning feast for the eyes, all using the same basic design, but so beautiful with the different backgrounds and flower choices:

Sue has created a lovely Christmas card, featured on her blog. The added bling on the tree is a very pretty touch:

Kate's use of the large tree stamp in this card is fabulous. Lovely colours that are not necessarily traditional Christmas colours, which makes a refreshing change:
Finally a card from Pat using a chess design. This is a lovely CAS design, perfect for a masculine card, or simply a chess lover:
So there you have it, our final round up of 2016, and thank you so much, you are a truly talented bunch of people. It is always a pleasure to see what you create using the stamps that are available. We look forward to seeing what you create next year!

Please do keep visiting the Design Team Blog for a daily dose of inspiration from the Design Team girls.

  4. Thank you so much for including my card in your gallery Judith and what a great diversity. It is wonderful to see what other people create with their CB stamps. x

  5. Thanks for including my card too Judith. I agree with Pat, such a wide variety of styles and all of them fabulous! I have to say I'm in awe of Marga's stunning colouring of the image on the very first card.
