Fun Folds February and Recipe Monday #18

Thanks for stopping by this morning! This month will be Fun Folds February.....Some you've definitely seen before and maybe some new ones, but 24 in all for your viewing pleasure. Stop by The Stampin' Bunny every day EXCEPT Sunday to see a different fold.

To embellish today's Spring Up card (tutorial by Sandy Hulsart on, I decided to try the faux metal technique after seeing the second card down on this stop of the Stampin' Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop: Deb's blog
Deb used silver embossing powder on grey cardstock for a great chocolate mold look, but I used 4 layers of silver embossing powder to create the chocolate mold look.  It was a lot of fun!

I placed Chip the Chocolate Bunny Mold on the Spring card which folds flat and is 5-1/4 inch square.  Next, I created a big shot flower embellishment and added the Happy Easter sentiment from the Well Scripted stamp set.  I also created a simple 5-1/2 inch square envelope for the card made from matching Shades of Spring designer series paper.
Today's Recipe is Raspberry-Swirl Easy "Cheesecake"

Oreo Brand Cookie Pie Crust
1 8 oz package of regular cream cheese, softened
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-1/2 cups thawed Cool Whip
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam (room temp or slightly microwaved)
melted chocolate chips to drizzle (maybe 1/3 cup?)

Beat Cream Cheese with Mixer until fluffed.  Add sugar and mix well.  Add vanilla and thoroughly incorporate.  Add the Cool Whip with a spoon gently.  Poor into crust.

Make 20-25 holes in cheesecake. Spoon jam in holes. Gently swirl the jam with a knife. Drizzle with melted chocolate.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Invite friends over for evening technique class and cheesecake ;).
