Vintage Halloween

DSCF6324

My fun friend Shirley Pumpkin at Cute Stuff by Shirley LOVES Halloween.  She is having a 12-week long Halloween blog hop, and while I don’t have many Halloween stamps, I do have bunches of Halloween stickers & stuff that I have collected and (ahem) not used!  So, using the Our Creative Corner sketch from this week:

OCCSCsketch file-002

and a vintage Tim Holtz sticker, I made this card:

I realize my lower panel is not quite wide enough…I hope they don’t mind! (Where was my brain when I did that?!)   I used some images & sentiment from the Crafty Secrets Vintage Halloween set along with some Cosmo Cricket & SU papers.  Here is the inside sentiment, which is a retired Lizzie Anne single:

Heehee, I love it!  Thanks for visiting today!  Play along with Shirley's hop---she’s got a giveaway!  Any questions??? Give me a shout!

This is fabulous LeAnne, I'm so glad you managed to put your stash to use ... a great card, with great images, love the checked orange paper and love the ribbon - even that has a look of something spooooky ....
Fabulous take on the sketch, and thank you for sharing your creation with us at Our Creative Corner this week!

Love it! The colors and papers are so pretty together! I have many Halloween stamps too, so maybe I'll join in!

Leanne, this is great - I love how you combined the different papers and images together. What a great eye! I don't think I have any halloween images as I've never sought them out but it does look like a fun challenge!

What a great card, LeAnne. I love the mix of papers and what a great way to use those forgotten stickers. Thanks for the idea. I will go through my collection of stickers, use them so I can buy more!

Anne Marie said...

What is that, you say LeAnne? We are actually supposed to USE that stuff we buy for our supply stash? Hee hee! Your card is gorgeous, as always. Love the vintage sticker with the scrunchy ribbon accent and the pretty papers. It all works so poerfectly together. Thanks so much for joining us at Our Creative Corner this week! Hugs! :)

The colors are really fall-like on this vintage Halloween card. The stamp inside is fabulous! I wish Stampin' Up! had more Halloween sayings to use. Love your card!

THis is neat! I love the font on the sentiment on the front of the card. Crafty Secrets has such cool stuff.

What a great card! Love the orange plaid paper. Such a fun inside sentiment. For not having Halloween stamps, you came up with a really fun card.

I just finished a three hour card just to watch it buckle and wrinkle. When will I learn NOT to use the cheap glue...*sigh*

I really enjoy the colored papers you've used on this Halloween card. Stamped flourish in the corner is a nice touch and I really like your bow! Thank you for sharing your talent with us at Our Creative Corner this week.
