You may submit any theme you wish and there are no rules in what type of project you can enter. Maybe you are a mixed media fan, or an avid cardmaker. Perhaps you like painting and stamping on a canvas, art journalling or even jewellery. Whatever form of art you enjoy creating then you can enter.


  1. The is no theme however your entry must use Chocolate Baroque stamps and they need to be the main feature of your project. Although you can incorpate stencils, die cuts etc these must be as an accent.
  2. To submit your entry please take a good photograph of your finished piece and then email it to us at, with a few words about your design.

Hi Michelle

Apologies for the delay in responding, but I have been away twice and have just got back to sit down long enough and answer my emails!

I have looked in our back catalogue and actually cannot see this stamp. Although I know the saying I am not sure if I am remembering it from the old EI days or from somewhere else. The original saying came from a comedian called Tony Follari and has been used on blogs and many other things.

I will keep looking and if I do find it amongst our discontinued stamps I will contact you. Sorry that I cannot be more helpful.

Kind regards
