Simply Sunday - Halloween

Welcome to Simply Sunday with the Getting Cricky Design Team!

Today is the day that the Getting Cricky Design Team gets to show off some of the projects they have created with the wonderful stamps from K Andrew Designs.  Our theme for this week is Halloween.  Now, I could have gone with something easy and used any of the wonderful stamps on the NEW Fall-O-OWeen Stamp set but instead I decided to try and see what I could come up with using the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.

If you don't already own this stamp set I would suggest you click here to purchase it.  It has so many great phrases that can be used for so many different cards . . . even a Halloween card.

Here is the card that I created using this stamp set.

I used a variety of Jack-o-lantern face cuts from the Pumpkin Carving Cricut cartridge.  I then framed the cuts in a "torn" square that is on the Calligraphy Collections Cricut cartridge.  The finishing touch was adding the K Andrews Designs Stamp sentiment "Go ahead and Laugh!"

I hope that you enjoyed my card.  Be sure to stop by Getting Cricky to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I know you will be inspired to create your own Halloween projects!  Once you create your own Halloween Themed project, be sure to enter it at Getting Cricky for your chance to win a stamp set!
