A Festive Cupcake!


Happy Halloween everyone!

House is all spooked up ready for tonight and we are suitably pumpkinned!! 

However I'm sharing a festive card with you today for the challenges 

CAS-ual Fridays - Using Kraft
CASology - Sugar 


Cupcakes are so popular just now and not just for birthdays.  So I decided to make a festive cupcake complete with Holly and fairy lights!  I used Stampin' Up!'s Create a Cupcake and the Cupcake Builder Punch.  

The cupcake base and frosting are both popped up on a Dimensional.  The fairy lights were made with the little circles on the punch and joined using my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  The Holly berries are also made from the circles with some free hand cut holly leaves.  I added some gorgeous Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details glitter to give the berries a little extra shine and sparkle. 

I then stamped Merry Christmas from For My Family in Real Red.

Thought I'd share some Halloween pics.  We are all prepared and have been since Saturday when we had a family Halloween party. 

A few gravestones, some spooky treats, 4 pumpkins!, papermache heads, lots of cobwebs (I dusted before we put these up honest!).

We even had a hanged man outside - Henry - but as we had snow it was rather wet and his head fell off. Then with the rain during the night he disintegrated.  However I'm away to set up outside the leg and foot coming out of the mouth of one of the pumpkins.  A man eating pumpkin mwahhaahaa (evil laugh!)


Have a safe but scary one!! x
