Retro Rubber #49..Boo! It's Halloween..


It's time for another superb challenge over at Retro Rubber

We are not that far from Halloween, so we thought it was a great time for you to get digging around in your older Halloween stash..

Last year I explained how Halloween is a bit lost on me as I am English and it also just happens to be my Wedding Anniversary..

I recently had my Silhouette Portrait out, so I cut out a spider and web and let that dictate my card LOL.

I decided not to make my card too scary, so went with a grey backdrop. I remembered that I had some great Halloween washi tapes..somewhere..luckily I managed to find them and used them to add colour and text to my card.

I stamped, die-cut and coloured the MFT Mummy (from 2015) and mounted him/her onto my card, just slightly overlapping the spider.

I love it, such a fun card and I think my Niece and Nephew will like it too.

Show us your scary Halloween makes, but first go over to Retro Rubber and view the scary things my teammates have made..

Challenge ends on October 21st Don't forget to use a stamp a year or older and tell us about it that's part of the fun. Also, please limit your entries to 10 challenges including ours.



  1. Claire this is cute, a little spooky, but not too scary, it's just right! LOVE the washi...another thing I always forget about! Thanks so much for asking me to be the GD this week! Always love what your team has to offer!

  2. You know I don't like spiders on cards, you gotta warn me about that! Cute washi tapes, they are great with that little mummy. He's so perfectly colored I kept looking to see he was like a chipboard topper or something you had in your stash! x

  3. Awww, Claire... mummy is quite sweet and definitely not scary. Love the extra color with the washi tape. How much fun is adding another dimension to your anniversary... halloween fun!! Well done, teammate!! :)

  4. What a cute little mummy, I am sure your niece and nephew will love their card! The washi tape is perfect!

  5. Claire, love your card, the mummy he/she is adorable! I love the added washi tape in the background just perfect!

  6. I am really not into "scary" Halloween things so I really love your adorable mummy! Your washi tape was the perfect touch to keep "it" as the focal point. Colors are wonderful. Hope you have a very happy anniversary!!

  7. Oh Claire, I think the spider coming down is more scary than this sweet little mummy, she is just adorable.
    Love the Halloween washi tape, so glad you found it!!!
    Awesome and "scary" Halloween card, teammate.

  8. Claire! This card is ADORABLE! I love the washi and how you did the layout for this card! Complete with the cute spider! I think this has to be one of my top faves! PS - someday when I come and visit you - you best hide this washi because it may be in my bag when I go home! LOL!

  9. Your little mummy is so cute. Fun card; I too don't like them very scary.

  10. Way too cute! Great diecuts and the mummy is adorable! Fun washi too!❤️
