My Pink Designer - Spooky Puns projects!

Hi everyone!  I had sooooo much fun playing with the new My Pink Stamper 'Spooky Puns' stamp set!!!!
These are the cards I came up with!  I love these stamps!!

Spooktacular card:
I used the mini monsters cartridge to cut Frankenstein out at 3 inches.  The face was stamped using Peachy Keen's monster mash assortment. I stamped the sentiment right onto the orange ribbon and used Glossy Accents on the spider, and on Frankensteins hair, shoes, and tie.

Here are some closeups so you can see how I pop-dotted these.

Have a 'Boo-tiful day! card:
I used the Paper Doll Dress Ups cartridge to cut out the ghost and the tree.  The ghost was cut at 4 inches and I used my Gypsy's hide contour feature so the face lines wouldn't cut (so I could use the peachy keen face stamp!)  I also used my Gypsy to make the tree a little narrower.  (2.86 Width x 3.90 Height) I covered my Ghost with Glossy Accents!

Here are some close-ups:

Trick-or-Treat Monster card:
I cut this monster at 3 inches and the Trick-or-Treat bag at 4 inches from the Paper Doll Dress ups cartridge.  I used my gypsy to do the hide contour on both cuts so that I would just get the outline.  I also cut a paper doll body out at 3 inches in green.  Then I cut the arms off and positioned as shown in the picture below.  The face stamp is from Peachy Keen.

Don't you love all of the fun sayings on the Spooky Puns set?!?!?!?!

I used the Glossy Accents to go over the stamped sentiments and to cover the whole "EEEEEK!" sentiment.  

I used white core cardstock and sanded the edges of each piece.  For the green striped pattern on the bottom, I took sanded green strips of paper and adhered them to the black cardstock. Then I used my white gel pen to make the faux stitching.

Peachy Keen challenge #37 and EAD challenge- Counting my blessings

I am really loving my Peachy Keen face stamps!  Here is my take on the challenge Peachy Keen is having along with a couple of other challenges:

The pilgrim girl and the leafs are cut from the Paper Doll Dress Ups cartridge. The Stamped sentiment is from My Pink Stamper and the face is from Peachy Keen's Everyday Character face parts set. The patterned paper is from Crate Paper and I distressed the edges with a paper edge distresser. Everything was inked with Walnut Ranger Distress ink

Here are some close ups:

I wanted to make some cards from the mini monsters cartridge that were NOT Halloween.  Soooo,  here is what I came up with:

'Sorry I froggot':  (Mini Monsters, My Pink Stamper 'More Punny licious', Glossy accents, cardstock, twine)

I used the card feature on the mini monsters cartridge and cut it at 5 1/2 inches.

"Hugs to you":  (Mini Monsters cartridge, My Pink Stamper (Everyday life) stamps,Peachy Keen Monster Mash face stamp, patterned cardstock (Crate paper), cardstock, ribbon from my stash, corner rounder, glossy accents, white gel pen)

The card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches.  I cut the cute monster out at 3 1/2 inches. Scroll down to see a video showing how I did the face on this cute monster!

'Happy Bird-day':  Mini Monsters cartridge, My Pink Stamper stamps (Tweetie Hoo Puns), white gel pen, cardstock, black twine and ink.

Peachy Keen Friday Challenge - Halloween Treat box

Hey everyone!  I just bought a bunch of Peachy Keen face stamps and I am having a blast!   They are sooooo cute!  So, I thought I would join in the face challenge at Peachy Keen today. I used the Monster Mash face assortment, My Pink Stamper Stamps (Spooky Puns), and the Mini Monsters Cricut cartridge.  The monster is cut at 3.5 inches.

Here is a close up:

Here is a video showing how I did the face on the monster!

Supplies I used:

Here is a photo tutorial showing how I made this box/basket:

Cut a 6x6 piece of cardstock and score at 2 inches and at 4 inches.  Turn and score at 2 and 4 inches again.

Cut as shown in picture below:

fold on score lines:

Fold center up and bring both sides up to meet in a point:

Cut a 1/2 " by 10" strip of cardstock for handle.  Staple or attach with a brad:

For the hot pink ruffled edge, cute crepe paper (the kind you use to decorate for a party) in half lengthwise with decorative edge scissors.  Then I ran a strip of glue with my glue runner all along the inside top edge and then gathered the crepe paper as I went, fastening it to the glue strip.

Need some Glossy accents?

 $6.50 each (includes shipping*)

Have a great weekend!!
