RRCB171 Fall Blessings

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  So happy you stopped by! It's time for a new Retro Rubber challenge, where we get to show some love to our older stamps!  Here is today's challenge, a color one:

I've had this Autumn Squares set from Impression Obsession for many years....not sure how old it is, but at least six or seven!  It's really difficult for me to use purples, but I thought out of all these images, I could find a way to use the four colors of the challenge!  So here we go:

This card is pretty large, I had to make it bigger to fit all the images on!  I diecut panels from Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry using a postage stamp die from Papertrey and some SU plaid DSP.  Then I stamped fall images in each of the same colors and layered them on, staggering the designs.  And here is my purple turkey!!

Each panel was embellished with a candy dot....I still have a few left...and I stamped the sentiment from Graceful Words (2006) on the side with Blackberry  Bliss ink and added some matching sheer ribbon on the left.  It all went on a piece of textured Very Vanilla that I had in my stash!

While purples may be a challenge for me, I hope you'll find some way to use all these pretty fall colors in your creation!  Be sure to share it with us at Retro Rubber, and don't forget to tell us how old your stamps are (approximately) and make sure they're at least a year old!  Can't wait to see what you create!

Here's some cute pix of my nephew and his family, hiking in Montana. I am amazed that the boys have shorts on and there is snow on the ground!!!  Brrr!

Thanks for popping in today, enjoy it and be blessed!

Your purple turkey is much cuter than those ugly buggers that visited me last week, LeAnne!! Darling stamps, fab colors, and perfect plaids!
