TO66, RRCB47 and PPA318 Charmed Fall


Happy Friday, all!  I have a busy weekend coming up, so this will be short & sweet!  My card today is for three challenges:  the RetroRubber Anything Goes challenge; the Time Out photo inspiration challenge, and the Pals Paper Arts sketch!

            ppa-318-sep15

RRCB 47

I bought this "gently used" Close to My Heart stamp a couple years ago; it's called Backdrop-Charmed Holidays.  For the life of me, even after searching on the internet, I cannot find it's age, but I know it's at least two or three years old!  I inked it up with Calypso Coral ink, then added some other orange and gold shades with sponge daubers and stamped it on some woodgrain paper from Echo Park called Fall is in the Air.  I just love this paper...you'll see more of it in the future!


I stamped the sentiment from the same set on the same paper, but with the woodgrain going crosswise, and mounted it on a Cajun Craze square, then added a scalloped layer diecut with the Layering Squaes die.  I added a banner (same DSP line) that I embossed with a Darice Fall Leaves EF; since the white core showed through the lighter paper, I daubered it with some Cajun Craze ink.  I added some baker's twine to the top of my sentiment for a little embellishment.  I also stamped my Crumb Cake card base with an image from Gorgeous Grunge to follow through on the woodgrain look.


 I just love this beautiful fall image!  Thanks for popping by today!

A little snack on the patio while it's still warm....fresh raspberries!  Cassidy told me her favorite way to eat them is to stick them on her fingers!  Don't you know, she ate the entire container!

 


Have a blessed day!

  3. I can see why you went after that set! It's gorgeous as is what you did with it. No getting Cassidy and Liam together- they might duke it out over who gets the raspberries... if I don't snag 'em first. ;)
