My Pink Designer Showcase - Cricut Banner

WELCOME to this week's edition of the My Pink Designer Showcase! The challenge for us designers (if you want to call it a challenge - I had SO much fun!) was to come up with a project that was orange, black, green, and purple and used the new Spook-alicious line! 

Many of you know that there was a contest that is just ending where Provo Craft asked us to make a banner that spelled out Cricut and send it in for a chance for it to appear on HSN and therefore win a new E2 AND (if you are a Circle member) $150 credit to Cricut.com! What an AWEOME prize! So this is what I made for the contest! Wish me luck!

I wanted to use my new Apothecary Emporium from Echo Park too! I know that they have been good to Robyn and that she loves their papers and in my opinion they go hand in hand! 

I crinkled the spider in my hand really firmly. It's cut out of card stock vellum. It's my newest fad! Do you see the "Boo to you!" sign? Love it! My Pink Stamper stamps made this SO much more festive!

I know the skeleton has arms and legs, but I cut them out and then liked him better without them still. I thought it kept him not quite as creepy. haha. Maybe because without arms and legs he can't get me! 

I also did quite a bit of i-rocking on the bottom of the letters. 

LOVE that spider stamp that Robyn includes in the Spook-alicious stamp set! It's kind of cute in a creepy way!! I inked around the edges in the same white American Crafts ink that I used to stamp the words to give it a haunted feel. 

Now, I will give a design secret away. I had plans on getting that fake spider web stuff and putting it behind my letters! I wish I would have done it but I ran out of time before I needed to send this off! So don't forget to incorporate that into your Halloween projects! I am sure it will end up making it into mine! :) I thought the raffia was good enough for this one though and made it not so scary feeling! 

I hope you like it! Head on over to the My Pink Stamper Blog to see what the other ladies made with the Spook-alicious stamp set! I'm sure they will be spook-tacular!
