It's a "SPOOKY" Challenge!!

Happy Thursday Everyone!!

Today we are spotlighting Spooky Puns stamp set by My Pink Stamper along with a challenge for YOU!!  Click HERE to see my Products page!

Just make a project that is Halloween or Fall themed and you will have the chance to win a Spooky Puns stamp set!

This is what My Pink Designers have made using this fun Halloween/Fall set!

For today's challege, I made a card and spooky candle!  I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the ghosts, cut at 3 3/4 and 2 3/4 inches.  Then I used Robyn's wonderful Spooky Puns stamps for the sayings.  I didn't want a dark stamped image right on the ghosts on the candle.  So I inked up the Boo and then stamped it on scrap paper, then on the ghost to make it a bit lighter.  If you make a candle like this, you won't be able to burn it with the paper still on it, so be careful. You can visit my blog for all the details on how I created these projects.  I hope you all join in the fun!! 

Hi Crafters!! For this project I made a 'Fall' card using the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge and My Pink Stamper Spooky Puns stamp set!  I had so much fun making this card, I might even frame it! The paper is DCVW - Autumn Splendor, Ribbon is from Papertrey Ink - Summer Sunrise and the cute faces on the pumpkins are from Peachy Keen stamps - Everyday Character Face Parts and More. Hope you like it!!  You can go to my blog to view a complete list of supplies!

Hi, everybody!  I had lots of fun creating this haunted house using 12" x 24"  black Provo Craft cardstock.  I used Happy Hauntings and cut the house at 11".  The final product is about 20" tall, which makes it a perfect decoration for my classroom.  My 2nd and 3rd graders will love it!  The windows were cut from Papertrey Ink vellum, and then I used various Papertrey Ink and Core'dinations papers for everything else.  This project utilized Happy Hauntings, Paper Doll Dress Up, Create a Critter, Gyspy Wanderings, and Designer's Calendar.  I just love the sentiments, stamped from My Pink Stamper's Spooky Puns!  Stop by my blog for more specific details and some additional pictures.

Hi Everyone, I am so thrilled to be sharing this card I designed and created using my Gypsy. I welded the pumpkins from the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge, then welded the pumpkins to a rectangle from George and the Basic Shapes Cartridge to create the card base, this card will fit in a legal size envelope perfect. I cut the pumpkins from some adorable Stampin Up paper in different sizes multiple times to get the layered effect. I added buttons, some stitching with my white Sakura gel pen, attached the tag with hemp that was cut at 1.25" from Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge. And to put my finishing touch on I stamped the tag with an amazing My Pink Stamper stamp "Pick of the Patch" from the stamp set "Spooky Puns". This stamp set is so stinkin cute!!

I had soooo much fun fun playing with the new 'Spooky Puns' stamp set!!!
Here is the 'recipe' for these cards:  Mini Monsters and Paper Doll Dressups cartridges, My Pink Stamper Stamps (Spooky Puns), My Gypsy (to hide contour and resize the tree) white gel pen, ribbon from my stash, Peachy Keen Monster Mash face stamp (I have a video on my blog showing how to use the hide contour on the Gypsy and how I did the faces on these cards!), decorative edged scissors, Glossy accents, chalk and chalk brush, ink, and cardstock.

One of my favorite things to do is to make Halloween "cute". I had a hard time deciding which My Pink Stamper Spooky Puns stamp to use, there were so many that worked with my witch princess! My runner up was "Too cute to spook" I love this set! More info on how I made this card is on my blog.

Imagine That Wednesday! Episode 241 & a Challenge!

Good morning Everyone!

Today is off to a great start!!!  I got up at 5:50, went to the gym for 50 minutes, did the bike (since my heel is still injured & going to the doc today), lifted weights for my upper body, came home started a load of laundry, unloaded the dishwasher, loaded the dishwasher.  AND... this was all before my children got up for school!!  I have been sleeping in this year too much and I need to start having more days like today.  I just feel so much more productive.  I'm sure I'll be super tired later but at least I am going now!!

Okay, are you ready for Imagine That Week 2?  I have a challenge for all of you!!  Watch the video and then join along by attaching your project below!

Note:  In this video I show how to use one of the same images from the same cut.  You could also select the image on the mat and use the "COPY" button.  I just wanted to show how to delete other layers if you only needed one element.  Hope that made sense!

P.S.  I am also on the lookout for Guest Designers on Imagine That! Wednesdays.  I will be checking out all of the challenges this week and contact some of you so be watching!

Winter Frolic (donated by Provo Craft)

Lisa Blacksten said...

I was in Michaels buying a cricut cart and was having trouble deciding between Mini Monsters and Create a Critter. A woman came up to me and we started talking about cricut and she told me about mypinkstamper. Ever since, I've been hooked! I ordered stamps and the videos. My only regret is that I never got to credit the woman that got me hooked (hope she's reading--I went with the Create a Critter, by the way)!
Anyway, love winter frolic, but it's always sold out at michaels--I'd love love love to win it!

Imagine That Week 1 (Episodes 238 & 239)

Well, hello Everyone!

Welcome to my very first Imagine That Wednesday!  I am devoting one day a week to the Imagine.  The rest of the week will be my regular blog posts with all the machines, etc.  I will be shortly looking for a few guest Imagine Designers so be on the look out for my post.  Don't e-mail me about that just yet.  

Okay, I have had my Imagine for a couple of weeks now and one of the biggest questions I have received is about calibrating your Imagine.  I made this video to answer that for you.
Another question I receive regularly is about what type of white cardstock will work in the Imagine.  Here is a video where I show the side by side comparisons.
Here is a card I made using one of the images I cut.  I added white gems to the bottom using the i - rock from Imaginisce.  Hope you enjoy it!

To answer some more questions.  Yes, I will see be using my Cricut Expression regularly.  The Imagine is not replacing it.  It is just giving me another wonderful tool to work with.  

For this week's "Imagine That" giveaway we are very lucky to have Beacon Adhesives sponsoring us.  The owner's wife has designed Flashbright, which are these awesome reflectors that our children can wear when they are out Trick or Treating!  Just leave a comment below with a way you can be reached if you win.

Thanks Everyone!

My Pink Designer's September Projects

Hello Friends!

Are you so excited to see what My Pink Designer's have come up with this month's theme of "Anything Goes" using My Pink Stamper Stamps?  I am!  I think they did soooooo awesome!!   If you would like to get a better look at my stamp line please click my Products page HERE.

Okay, so let's get started!!  

I thought it would be fun to use the Mini Monsters cartridge (It is one of my favorites!) to make cards that have absolutely nothing to do with Halloween! 
Here is the 'recipe' for these cards:  Mini Monsters Cartridge, My Pink Stamper Stamps (More Punny-licious, Everyday life, and Tweetie Hoo Puns), white gel pen, ribbon from my stash, Peachy Keen Monster Mash face stamp (I have a video on my blog showing how I did the face on the cute blue monster!) , Glossy accents, chalk and chalk brush, ink, cardstock.

Hello everyone!  I'm so excited to show you another My Pink Designer project.  I made a card and a box for today from the Sweet Treats cartridge.  I also used two stamps from My Pink Stamper's Everyday Life set.  I'm callling it a box, but it really should be a bag.  I just didn't put a handle on it.  You can't tell in the picuture, but I 'stitched' the sides with a green pen and I ink the edges as well.  You can see all the other details on my blog!

Hello everyone! I am excited to share with you one one of my MOST favorite cards I have made.  I used the Cricut markers to draw this adorable spider and I just love how it came out! First I drew the spider with the markers then used the shadow feature to cut it out with the cricut! The spider is cut from Doodlecharms (I think he is my favorite spider of all) The face is from Peachy Keen stamps, the paper I used is K&Company - Halloween Whimsy and the Happy Halloween stamp is from My Pink Stamper Spooky Puns Stamp set - which I LOVE!! I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed designing it!! 

How do you like my "Monster Dracula"??  Isn't he the CUTEST EVER!! I used 2 of my FAVORITE cartridges, "PaperDoll Dress Up" & "Mini Monsters"!  The "Trick or Treat" sentiment is from my favorite Halloween set from My Pink Stamper called "SPOOKY PUNS"!!  You can visit my blog to see my video on how this CUTE card was made!;)

Cartridges Used: Preserves and Platin Schoolbook
This card is A2 in size (4.25X5.5), the papers are from Stampin up, DCWV, and Core-dinations I used the Bananna from preserves cut in green and layer together then flip upside down to make the Artichoke, some inking on the parts with Versa chalk ink and the boarder was cut from Platin Schoolbook, my ribbon from Hobby Lobby, and the final touch "Okey Dokey Artichockey" from My Pink Stamper Friut and Veggies puns stamp set
This was a very fun card to create, using lots of Cricut cartridges:  Create a Critter, French Manor, 3 Birds on Parade, Winter Woodland, Everyday Paper Dolls, and Don Juan!
