My Pink Stamper Halloween Challenge

It's time for a challenge with the My Pink Stamper Design Team! Robyn asked us to create something with her Spooky Puns stamp set (check here for retailers that sell this adorable set). Even if you don't have her stamps yet, you can join in the fun on by creating a Halloween themed project with your Cricut. Be sure to check out the awesome projects by the rest of the design team when you are there!

I had so much fun creating this haunted house for my classroom! I brought it into school yesterday, and my 2nd and 3rd graders loved it. Of course, they think they should all get to make one as well. :-) I used Happy Hauntings and cut the house at 11", which created a 20" haunted house! The black paper for the house came from 12" x 24" Provo Craft cardstock, and the windows were created with Papertrey Ink vellum. The rest of the papers are from Core'dinations or are Papertrey Ink cardstock. All of the sentiments (Eeeek!, Happy Halloween!, Boo!, and Trick or Treat) are from the My Pink Stamper Spooky Puns stamp set, stamped with Papertrey Ink True Black ink.

We loved your Haunted House! My 4 year old wanted to know if he could stand on top of it, and was disappointed to find out it was only 20" high. We also had fun reading all of the spooky puns. Thanks for the great ideas!

Okay not sure if you'll get this but. My daughter and I are having a "girls day" next Thursday and she is DYING To tackle this mansion. She made part of the "Winter Woodland" 3D project last Christmas on her own (she's 12) Did a great job too I must add. Anyhoo, Do you have any words of advice as we undertake this project? I did see that you used 12x24 paper. I saw someone do it with 12x12 and it was a struggle. How long did this take you? Are there any tips for success?

I will check back on this thread or you can email me at

Thanks sooooo much! Love following you on MPS! Now I am a follower of YOU too!
