"I've got my eyes on you BOO
"! The inspiration for this custom stamp came from my friend who is a Halloween fanatic and celebrates her anniversary date on Halloween as well. She wanted me to create something cute that she could place at her hubby's bedside table before he woke up in the morning. Is that not the cutest thing ever! I was up for the task and who can say no to that! I wanted to create a fun little love message but also include the fact that it was on Halloween. The best part about creating a stamp is that you can use it over and over again. You could also use this stamp on just about anything you gift to someone who is special in your life. The possibilities with the Silhouette Mint
are endless! Now for the design, I wanted the eyes
and BOO to stand out but have a simple and clear message. I'm so happy with how it turned out!
I also cut out a few little ghost that she could place around her card. Did you see that google eye ghost I made
? He is by far my favorite! LOL
Now lets talk about these little googly eye clothespins
I made for her too! TOO CUTE! I just had to, its all about the details.

Start by purchasing and downloading the ghost design over at The Silhouette Studio. Open your design and make as many ghost as you like and size them as you wish. Then send your file to cut. Now you will want to prep and lay out your files as you wish on your Silhouette Mint. I used two different fonts and created my BOO Design. You may now send your completed files to your Silhouette Mint. Make sure your Mint is on and feed your stamp blank into your machine. Once you have your stamp place it all together and ink the top of your stamp and set aside for about 5-10 minutes.
You want to make sure the ink soaks into your stamp before using it. At this point you will want to use your custom stamp a few times on a separate piece of paper to ensure the excess ink is off before placing it on your card or envelope.
Now you are ready to stamp your final project.
What would your Halloween custom stamp say?!
