Tuesday Trigger: Decadently Yours

In the fridge last night, I found a container of blueberries, and I suddenly got the craving for blueberry muffins. So with some coaxing from my sister via IM, I baked some and had fresh muffins in less than 30 minutes. Woot. You'll notice that I didn't use any muffin cups. Meh, they aren't necessary. I basically used a ice cream scoop to make the ~15 muffin tops. When I was watching NCIS this evening (which was a great episode, by the way), I bit into a muffin and some of the berry juice ended up on my shirt. Graceful I am not. Sigh. It was a good muffin though!

This week's Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger focuses on truffles, which is totally appropriate since Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. I decided to make my own paper truffles out of scrap brown cardstock and decorate them with either rhinestones or embossing powder for some added texture. Nom nom nom.

Card Specs:
Embossing powder: Personal Stamp Exchange- Black, Stampendous! in white
Embossing ink: VersaMark
Paper: American Crafts- City Park (brown), Dear Lizzy (pink)
Punch: Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch
White Gel Pen: Inkssentials
Die: Cuttlebug- Flowers (flowers)
Stickers: American Crafts Chipboard Thickers in Darling (white)
Foam adhesive: Thermoweb
