You Make Me Smile!

So does this card! I love, love, love vintage Halloween, and these little pumpkins with their silly grins scream vintage to me. They are so adorable!

The pumpkins are from Twick or Tweet, a new Stampin' Up! set in the Winter Mini catalog (these items are available for purchase starting September 1). I stamped the pumpkins onto Really Rust and Enchanted Evening Cardstock. I cut them out and layered them onto a piece of Vintage Cream that had also been stamped with the image. I was a little irritated with the sentiment not stamping clearly but decided I sort of liked it paired with the distressed-looking patterned paper. Does anyone else have trouble using wood-mounted stamps after using clear stamps?

I was practicing my sewing again, stitching three different strips of patterned paper together. I added a few other touches - trimmed the bottom of the image with my pinking blade, added some buttons, and inked the edges. Love it! I think I'll leave this out on my desk so I can look at it and smile! :)

I hope you have a great night and a wonderful weekend. I need to spend some time doing nothing.. we'll see.

Thanks for stopping by!
