Halloween at Allsorts Challenge

Happy Saturday! Today I am sharing a Halloween card made for the new Allsorts challenge where Susan picked this fun theme! I hope you come play along with us and share your Halloween makes for a chance to win! This week we are being sponsored by Little Claire Designs.
 

My husband recently found this  cute pumpkin stamp at a thrift store and he thought I might like it :-) Of course I do and I decided to use it for this card. It's been heat embossed, colored with Zig Clean Color markers and then fussy cut. The stamp is by Stampassions called Mama Papa and Baby Boo and dated 1994. Some swirls and stick arms are also part of this stamp but they were left off after I fussy cut.

I thought the bare tree stamp from the Penny Black set "On the Town" was perfect for a somewhat spooky background and I used distress inks for inking. The bats were done using a Whimsy Stamps die. Image panel edges were all distressed before adhering to the designer paper and card base. I've had this designer paper for a really long time, so I have no idea who the manufacturer is. But it was picked up either at Joann's or Hobby Lobby as a single sheet.
The sentiment is from an old Stampin Up stamp set (Halloween Hedgehogs) and has been heat embossed using detail white embossing powder.


This week I am playing along in some other challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - P is for Pumpkin
City Crafter Challenge  - Pumpkins
Deep Ocean Challenge  - Halloween
Fairy Tale  - Pumpkin (week 2)

Thanks so much for visiting!!
Hope you enjoy your weekend!
