Halloween Shoes


I've had this older Stampendous stamp for years, and I'll never part with it! I pull it out every year to make at least one Halloween or Christmas card with it. Yes! I color this image in red & green, and it makes a really cute Christmas card too!

I'm entering this into the Shopping our Stash #124 challenge which is "Halloween - or orange & black." I also added some purple & green colors and a jack-o-lantern border done with an EK punch. I lined the punched out pumpkin faces with black to make them pop! The background was done with a SU! ef, and the sentiment was done with a SU! hearts-a-flutter framelit die and a SU! stamp. I pierced the image panel and did some faux stitching around the edges with a purple marker just for fun.

I'm also taking this one to the Snippets Playground #95 since I used snippets of orange and green to put this together.

Thanks for checking in today - make it a good one!

I can see this one as a Christmas one also, but I do love it for Halloween. Great take on the challenge. Gotta run off to work. Enjoy your day.

Oh, too cute, Carol. I love when those stamps have multi-purpose use. I don't blame you for not getting rid of it.
Cute punch....I think I have that pumpkin punch (or one close to it) but it broke right away after getting it..different company UGH!

Really cute cards! The "leggings" remind me of pair of socks my daughter had as a teenager...they were a favorite of hers...wore them to keep warm during the winter at night time.

Oh Carol - BRILLIANT! Love the stamp and such a great Halloween card. As others say, it would also be super for a Christmas card - those stockings and cheeky booties are fabulous!

Hugs, Di xx

Fun Halloween card, Carol! That *is* a great image -- I can see why you won't part with it, and how this would be great for Christmas cards, too.

We have something in common - that is my all-time favorite Halloween stamp. Sadly, I didn't get around to using it this year. I'm glad I at least got to see it with your fun card!
