1 package chocolate cake mix
1/2 container store-bought chocolate frosting
1 package fudge-striped shortbread cookies
1 (6 ounce) bag milk chocolate kisses, unwrapped
1 small tube store-bought red frosting
*Prepare cake mix according to package directions for cupcakes. Let cool completely in muffin pan. (Unfrosted cupcakes can be frozen up to 2 weeks ahead.) Spread chocolate frosting over cupcakes.
*Break cookies in half or cut with a serrated knife for wings. With stripes facing away from you, press points of cookie halves down through frosting into cupcake deep enough for them to stand on their own. For body, put a chocolate kiss in front of cookies with its point facing you. Pipe 2 eyes with red frosting.
HAPPY TRICK OR TREATS!
Melissa stopped by yesterday afternoon to pick up her Stampin' Up! order from our October Stamp Club meeting. I was watching this video when she walked in the door (carrying a UPS/Stampin' Up! package ~ thank you, Melissa) which turned out to be perfect because the wreath was in her order! I was listening to the video because I wanted to make my wreath this weekend and, funny, so does she! The only problem is we will be making our wreaths in two different locations ~ it would be such fun to make them together!!!! Here's the video and you can find the kit and stamp set on page 6 in the Holiday Catalog. (Hoping to have mine finished so that I can show you next week some time!)
I think you are going to love this technique using Stampin' Up! Watercolor Paper, Gold Glimmer Paper and Gold Sequin Trim! I would love to see what you create ~ send me a picture of your creation. Susan Elise
This card was my swap card for my October Team Meeting ~ I think I showed you all the others in the swap. This stamp set, Wonderland, is lovely (not sure about the antlers but I am sure someone has a great idea ~ I'll be keeping an eye out for that idea!) and you can find it on page 23 in the Holiday catalog.
Melissa Burroughs sent me a picture recently and I thought I would share it with you this morning. She is a talented, and consistent, stamper and a member of one of my stamp clubs. We had used this technique a year or so ago (sorry, I don't remember exactly when) and I love what she did with it. Thanks so much for sharing your pretty card, Melissa!
Stampin' Up! has included a PROJECT KIT in the Holiday Catalog that will provide you with a fun afternoon with family members. That's what happened last Saturday afternoon in the Studio when my team members got together to make cards with the To You & Yours Kit (top of page 4 in the catty ~ 18 cards). There were lots of smiles, laughter and coordinated efforts to make the cards below. The kit would make a super 'Girl's Night Out' holiday get-together!
One of the prettiest Paper Pumpkin Kits ever ~ can't wait to assemble mine!
Be sure and print off the directions to this pretty card using Among the Branches (page 39) and Happy Scenes (page 11) stamp sets. Both of these stamp sets are on sale, 15% off, until the end of tomorrow, Friday, October 23.
