My Pink Stamper--Design Team Post

It is that time again when ALL of the My Pink Designer's from My Pink Stamper get together and do a collective post on My Pink Stamper. This month we are showcasing the new Spook-alicious stamp set. I love this set! You can get it HERE. This is what it looks like :)
We also had the challenge this month to use the colors Green, Purple, Black and Orange and use the Cricut. Not too hard of a challenge considering the Halloween theme of Spook-alicious :) I have been dying to use my new Chic and Scary Cartridge. I had some technical difficulties with my Gypsy with this cartridge when I went to cut it. Apparently my Gypsy didn't like this cartridge so I did it with my good old Cricut and the actual cartridge. I don't do that too much anymore, LOL! I had to "tweak" my project a little from the original I had on the Gypsy considering I couldn't weld but still basically the same.
I loved the cut from the Chic and Scary cartridge and decided to elaborate on it with the Spook-alicious set adding extra words to the cut.
After it was cut I used Scotch Quick-dry glue and some Doodlebug glitter to highlight some of the words. I also used enamel accents in black and white for some other parts.
I added the little spider (I LOVE this spider) from the stamp set to a few places and another sentiment at the very bottom. All in all I used 9 stamps from the set. I happened to have bought a whole bunch of these frames over the summer at Big Lots for $7 each (they are 5" x 7") and they have been sitting on my bookcase empty ALL summer! Yes, all of them--I'm a little behind, LOL!

Now please go back to My Pink Stamper and see what all my other fabulously talented Teammates made with this set. Lots and lots of inspiration for you :)
