...New for September - Vintage Witch


ED - This competition has now closed.

ED - I can't believe it either Kerri, I must be missing a vital, common-sense brain function...

Good morning folks, my samples are all super simple this week since I am still up to my eyes in packing, but I look forward to the day when I can play a little longer with these images.

A real 'live' Vintage Witch - she is already over 150 years old and she's the kind of gal who will never really go out of style, given that she's pretty much perfect, for a witch that is...

I stamped her simply in black on a tag and edged that tag with black distress embossing powder.

I got to like her more and more while I worked with the image to translate it into stampable graphics, check out that chin!

Halloween is going vintage this year at my house in case you had not realised and this is the main image in the Vintage Witch stamp set due for release on Thursday evening. Can't wait for the reveal!

DT ladies previewing with me today are:


 Sure hope these tickle - and I'd really love to know - so leave me a comment here on this post telling me which looks like your fave set so far and I will randomly draw a lucky winner to win their choice of set from the new release! draw will take place this coming Thursday and winner will be posted at 6;00pm my time, just before the release takes place.

  1. I don't do Halloween but I love what I have seen from your DT ladies. I will definitely buy some of the vintage images that I can use for other occasions. I also love the splat set, so can't wait to see all the sets tomorrow. Hugs, Kate xxx

  4. I'm not a huge Halloween fan so the ritz set is my hands down fave this month (although I do like the count as well as he has non hallow possibilities)

  5. I would have to say the Vintage Witch is my fav so far with the Count not far behind! Such creative designs by the DT too!

  6. They're all so different and unusual (in such a good way!) but I think the Art deco backgrounders so far! Fabulous projects as always!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Wow! I love the details! All of these sets are gorgeous. Hard to pick, but I guess the witch is my favorite.

  8. Cannot believe you have a release while moving! Some people work better under pressure, but this is pushing it. Anyway, I am in love with spooky tree. And I like the witch. And probably some more while I am at it. Thanks so much!

  9. My favourite set so far is Putting on the Ritz.

  10. Pick one? Gee, that is so hard. I Absolutely LOVE that tree, the witch, the count and the Splat. I guess if I have to pick one, I just love that tree!

    ReplyDelete
  11. LOVE THIS WITCH!!!!! Gorgeous tag!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I just read where you wanted to know which set is our favorite.....I think so far the Raven...

  13. Love the witch, just what I've been looking for.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The Count! Love him! This is the best vampire stamp I've ever seen!

  15. Claire, Claire, what are you doing to me??? I can't pick one over the other. Just love, love the vintage of them all. Roll on Thursday!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I really like them all! If I have to pick it would be the Splat That.

  17. Claire, got to see some of the terrific sentiments in these sets and have to say, crazy about the vintage look! the spooky tree is getting to me!
    Much good wishes on the move. Never easy, but all will be worth it soon!

  18. Well- what can I say -how do you manage to choose a favourite from such a fabulous release! If I had to choose only one - I would go with the Deco set - as we don't really do Halloween now the children have flown my nest! Might just have to get at least one set though as they are so brilliant - very "grown up" Halloween methinks.J x

  19. I love All Hallow's Eve! That church and the raven. Just wonderfully spooky.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh Claire! It's PERFECT!!!!! I HAVE to find some cash... I really just have to have this witch!!! Fabulous job!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. All of the sets look fantastic but I think I would get a lot of use out of the Splat set.Great for backgrounds - and for those difficult cards for the male of the species!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am not a Haloween person, so the Opera Tags Christmas or Art Deco Backgrounder would have to be my favourites from this release. Good luck with the move!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Claire, it is impossible to choose! Please don't make me! I will just have to have them all! ;)

  24. It's a toss up between the Count Dracula and the witch. Both are so cool. Good luck with the move and the release. Thanks for the chance to win a great stamp.

    ReplyDelete
  25. WOW!! I thought the beginning of the release was amazing but its getting better by the day. I absolutely love todays stamps and the DT have done a fantastic job showing them off. TFS. Hugs xNx

  27. I adore Halloween stamps and your new ones are just fantastic! Love your tag!

  28. More of a "ritzy girl than a ghoul, but i do dig the Count.( so debonair). I didn't know a vampire had to be invited in in order to do his...thing.

  29. Oh I'm loving
    The Count! Looks
    so crisp and has
    a great attitude.

  30. I am not into Halloween so I like the Putting on the Ritz set.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Gorgeous images, Claire! So detailed and so unique and perfectly spooky. I love your tag! I think my fav so far is the All Hallow's Eve set, but Spooky Tree looks pretty awesome, too. Can't wait for the full reveal.

    Hope you have a gang of family and friends to help you with your move. It makes the process a little bit less stressful.

  32. My favorite is the tree branch! I think it is so versatile! I love the Christmas card I saw that showed it all glittered with "snow"!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Your contributions may seem simple to you but, they are wonderful!! I don't think I can pic a FAV.....the art deco is so unique (eeek!) and the Halloween ones are too!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. All look great as always but I think I like the one with the crow and the tree best so far. Could very easily change my mind when I see all the stamps in each set. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Such an amazing vintage, witch!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Well, until today it was Dracula and he might still be my favorite in the end but witchy-poo, at this moment, is in the lead.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love them all, but I think All Hallows Eve would be my favorite set. Your have a wonderful design team! Thanks for the chance to win one of these great sets.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The skeletal tree branches are the best! Very spooky!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Fabulous release. I think that tree is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The Christmas set for the Opera Tags - I am such a sucker for Christmas - is my fave, although I enjoyed the Art Deco and the way Kelly used the Spooky Tree for winter.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Claire... these peeks have been fantastic! I like ALL of the sets... but if forced to choose.. it would have to be the vintage witch! I can't wait to see them all when released!!

    ReplyDelete

  43. I like the art deco backgrounder and the stamps set with the ink/paint spots.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have my eye on a few sets in this amazing release but have got to say that my absolute favourite is Putting On The Ritz. I've been walking around with the song buzzing in my head ever since seeing the DT's beautiful samples.

    ReplyDelete
  45. So looking forward to this release, they are all fab-my favourite is the Vintage Witch, just perfect for Oíche Shamhna!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Its the spooky tree for me - very versatile, I can see it embossed in sparkle white for Christmas cards too.

  47. Choose one? Really? Well, if I must, I must say I'm certainly drawn to the Vintage Witch.

    ReplyDelete
  48. They all look fab but the Art Deco backgrounders are my fave set with the Putting On The Ritz set a very close second. The design team samples were fabulous. Hurry up 7.15pm!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. well, you've made it so difficult claire! which one to choose??
    I love that witch.. she is so so witchy
    but i love the trees! so spooky!

    its really too hard for me to choose!

    ReplyDelete
  50. From what I've managed to see so far, Claire, I think my favourite is Putting on the Ritz... loving all the Gatsby-esque style around atm... but the Spooky Tree is simply stunning too!! Lol Can't wait to see the full reveal later!! :)
    Hope all is going well with your move!! :)
    hugs, Rxx

  51. This month's offerings are all so unique and totally fab! My favorite is the Ritz background ... love all the detail!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Claire, I didn't even make Halloween until seeing your beautiful projects...and now I own almost every Halloween set you've made! This release is fabulous yet again, but I'm in love with the count...he's so dashing and dangerous...the kind of old world bad boy that drives girls wild! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Everything I have seen is simply stunning but I have to say that Vintage Witch is my fav...she is fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm not sure if my comment went through.. My favourite is Putting on the Ritz! The background is also wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  55. 'putting on the ritz' and the 'art deco backgrounders' have certainly caught my eye! (even though i still can't seem to get the hang of using big backgrounds - for the art deco i just might persevere!)

  56. It is so hard to pick between the new Backgrounders and Putting on the Ritz, I think you really need them together! Great release!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Halloween is my favorite holiday! I can never resist Halloween stamps and these are awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Although I love the vintage vibe and detail of the Count and witch images, we don't really do Halloween. So my favorite this time would be Putting on the Ritz. Thanks for a chance to win, and congrats on a great release!

  59. Hi Claire

    Well, what shall I say? Normally I'm not the "Halloween type", i.e. I don't decorate the house at Halloween and I usually don't send cards for Halloween. BUT I must admit that I love your Halloween sets with Count Dracula and the spoky tree background as well as the spoky tree with the crow on it. They just look great.
    I already look forward to seeing all stamps of your new sets.

    Kind regards
    Carola

  60. The details on this is amazing. You have some of the best stamps around. I'm not normally a Halloween decorator but this makes me want to indulge!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Well Claire - this is tough. Since moving to the US, Halloween has become quite big here (mind I used to do it in the UK too!). I love the splats as I can see that set being used often. Love the spooky trees too. Looking forward to this evening ;))

  62. I really love the witch, but I am not a celebrator of holloween. But she is awesome!!
