RRCB119 Happy Fall Colors

Hey peeps!  It's Tuesday, and that brings us a new Retro Rubber challenge, and it's a lovely seasonal one:

I used one of my all-time favorite Papertrey sets (it's at least from 2014, but probably before that), called A Wreath for All Seasons.  Honestly, you can't go wrong with's easy to line up, creates a beautiful wreath, and I love it!  So here we go:

I stamped my twig wreath in Soft Suede, then added "berries" of Real Red and Pumpkin Pie, cutting it out with a Stitched Shapes circle die.  The sentiment is from My Creative Time (circa 2013), Just For You, diecut with a My Favorite Things banner die:

I also pulled out an old favorite embossing folder by Cuttlebug that features lots of fall words; I embossed a piece of DSP from my stash, then lightly sponged some Crumb Cake ink on top, just to make the words stand out a bit:

A little twine bow finished it off!  

There are lots of ways you can use these colors, so we hope you'll play along!  Just remember that you must use stamps that are at least a year old and tell us the age, as best you can!  Share your creation with us at Retro Rubber--can't wait to see you there!

From the Fish Fry, Jameson's little brother Sawyer played his own version of Corn Hole:

This little ginger is full of spice!  Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Absolutely beautiful card, LeAnne! This set is also one of my favorites as it always stamps so nicely! I really love the Fall feel to this and the texture that the embossing folder adds to it. Well done! :)

Gorgeous! Love the embossing folder, so evocative of the season and I’m not surprised the wreath was a keeper - it is simple yet beautiful. Love the photos too - Sawyer is such a cutie!

WOW!! LeAnne!!! I have this very set and I haven't used it a long while, I bought it on eBay some years ago, thank you for the reminder.
I love the beautiful embossing folder you used for the background which is just perfect for that delicate wreath.
