Howdy Candies…I hope this post finds you in Fantabulous Spirits! I’m truly tickled about Velata for soooo many reasons! Haven’t heard of Velata? Well…Do you Love Chocolate? I know I’m a chocaholic of sorts…A couple of my Favs is Ghirardelli, Dove, & Lindor Hazelnut Lover. All of which are truly tasty right!?! I mean let’s face it…when it comes to chocolate we all have our tastes or mixes that we enjoy tickling our taste buds with. However, Velata is Ah-Mazing! It is Gluten FREE & Nut FREE at 160 calories per oz. & that gives me full leisure to dipping rights and did I mention it is truly Premium Belgium Chocolate too!
Oh, YUMMY My Friends…I have dipped to my hearts content. Yes, it is no secret that I’m a Fondue lover too. So I was in total Awe when I discovered this neat treat after returning home from our Summer Family trip. It is so Deliciously Delightful and truly an ease to use. No Messes, Fusses, & completely easy to make a quick snack for my kids. Plus, I have to admit my indulgence I’ve shared with a few visitors lately…in fact one comment comes to mind that was made: “This is sooo tasty it should be illegal” lol, yes in deedy that was a reaction I got after a dippy doo of their very own.
These are just a couple of things that set Velata apart from other chocolates I enjoy in my pantry. It is a total experience I get to share over and over again & I’m loving every moment of it. Plus I do admit that when I’m getting pretty crafty with inky fingers & all, I have yet to have a choco smudge on a piece of my heARTistry! Good News for those of us that struggle with choco-cover ups during our lil snack breaks.
In fact here are a couple of things I’ve managed to dip into my Fondue Warmer: Pineapple Tamales, Apples, Oranges, Bananas, Strawberries, Angel Food Cake, Ham (oh, yes it was sooo good too!), & Pretzels. There are a lot of recipes posted and shared from other Velata FUNdue peeps. Visit my web-site to learn more today!
I do as always want to share some photos of my FUNdue set-up I have in the corner of my kitchen with some photos that I took of all the neat lil things to share with you in “My First Velata Party” Online/In-Home Launch Open House Party! Stay Tuned for some heARTistry share tags I’ve created the past couple of days too! (To leave a comment, thoughts, suggestions, or feedback - just click the title to this post & scroll to the bottom)

Whilst in the midst of the throws of a chocaholic frenzy I finally received my Metallic Distress Stains that Tim Holtz introduced during CHA Summer 2012! Wow…oh Wow…I had no idea when I watched the video via Ranger that Tim put out just how versatile these 3 gems can be. It is similar to the White Picket Fence Distress Stain as they both contain a pigment in the base & are both opaque.
What I adore about these is how much it adds to my creations. It’s just wonderful to be able to get truly inky & play with various base Ranger mediums & that is just exactly what I did these past couple of days. I don’t have a tutorial or anything but I have had some inquires to do so. I do have some products that I you may recognize that I used in my heARTistry though & I had such a blast playing with each & every one of them. So without Further Ado Photos:
