HAPPY HALLOWEEN to everyone and welcome to my stamping blog! Today is the last October challenge at Our Creative Corner. Lori has done a fabulous job at CHALLENGING us!! Today’s challenge was again quite the challenge for me. We were to use something vintage or vintage inspired. I found that Lovely As a Tree is as “vintage” as I get! Hasn’t this stamp set been around for like 100 years? (heehee!) That’s vintage, right?
Here’s a side view to see all the sparkle!
I also used the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge SC252 for this card. If you like this card, you might also like this one.
Here’s what else I used:
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes,
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango, More Mustard, Very Vanilla

Edited later as many of you have asked how I did this…Here’s how I did it:
I used a sponge dauber and inked the grass and tree trunks up through the center of the trees with chocolate chip. Then I used daubers to ink the dusty Durango, more mustard, and ruby red on. I combined them on a tree by inking ruby red in the center and dusty Durango out at the edges. Then on another tree I used dusty Durango in the center and more mustard out at the edges. I went back and used the chocolate chip marker to make some of the bare branch parts brown again and then I used gold stickles and dabbed it here and there over the leaf parts of the trees.
