Here's a CRAFTY idea with regards to this oh so cute Stamp of the Month for August, 2013 from Close To My Heart.

How about creating SCRATCH AND SNIFF areas with your stamping?!

If you are familiar with HEAT EMBOSSING, you can create delectible fudgy, mouth drooling scented areas on your greeting cards!

You will want to mix 2 parts clear Embossing Powder
to 1 part SUGAR FREE powder mix, such as
Sugar-free chocolate pudding, or Cocoa Powder.

Using the VERSAMARK ink pad, stamp the
appropriate stamp with it, then sprinkle the
powder/embossing powder mixture liberally onto the  stamped item. Shake off excess loose powder
mixture.  I like to tap the backside of the cardstock a couple times.

Hold the powder coated stamped image with
TWEEZERS and heat your stamped image using a CRAFT HEATER until it glosses. This process can go quickly, and BURN, so be careful! A tip is to heat from the backside of the cardstock to slowly melt the mixture.  

Set the image aside to cool.  Cut out image and apply to front or inside of card with your favorite adhesive.  You can gently scratch the card and smell all that yummy chocolately goodness wafting up from your beautiful handmade card from Close To My Heart!
