If The Broom Fits-My Pink Stamper Design Team Post, September

Hi everyone!  Are you ready for some fabulous inspiration?  Today, all the My Pink Stamper Design Team members have posted projects on their blogs for your viewing pleasure.

When we were given our “assignment” for the month, we were told to create a project using the new My Pink Stamper Spook-alicious stamp set and include orange, green, purple and black.

I knew right away that I wanted to use the “If the broom fits….ride it” sentiment.  But I don’t really own any Halloween cartridges.  Luckily, I found a broom, witches hat and spider web on my Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.  Whew!  I really wanted to use the new Chic and Scary Cricut cartridge, but couldn’t seem to find a place that actually had it in stock.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment.  I don’t usually do anything to the inside of my cards (that’s where I write) but the Happy Halloween sentiment was the perfect size.  I added the little spider to the block and stamped both images at the same time.

I also heard from a lot of you that you wanted to see some card with unique folds (I love to hear your suggestions).  I thought I would make a z-fold card for this project.  It’s easy and fun!  I have a video below that you can watch for all the instructions.  Check it out!

And when you’re done viewing you can go back over to My Pink Stamper's site to see all of the other projects from the other designers.

Have a wonderful day!
