Table Place Setting with Hidden Chocolate - Video Tutorial using Star of Light by Stampin' Up

Table Place Setting with Hidden Chocolate - Video Tutorial using Star of Light by Stampin' Up

Today's project was a request from one of my lovely team members. Kim asked if I could design a Christmas Day place setting and of course I had to oblige. 

I am actually somehow hosting 14 people on Christmas Day! You know, you invite a lot of people assuming most would already have plans and then it turns out that they don't!

Because of this I wanted to keep the design relatively simple so that I could replicate it easily but of course Stampin' Up products bring the wow factor. I hope you like the end result Kim. 

Emerald Envy is my absolute favourite green of the moment and I've used it here with Real Red - such a bright combination. Brushwork alphabet was perfect for the name tag. It is a photopolymer set so lining up is really easy.

Kim also had the brilliant suggestion of encorporating an after dinner mint - wasn't that an inspired idea. 

Just pull up the ribbon after your meal and out pops an After Eight mint. Now can we talk about After Eights for a minute. It must be years since I last had some and I really don't remember them being quite as yummy as they are - I might have sampled quite a few.

The finishing touch comes from the gorgeous die from the Starlight set. I am so pleased that this set is carrying over from the Christmas Catalogue - this is by far my favourite stamp and die set of the moment.

If you would like to make your own version, of course I have a YouTube video for you. Check it out HERE
