Magnificent Maple

We are now at the peak of the most beautiful time of the year – Autumn!! It is my favorite time of the year, even if by the end of it we have usually gotten our first big snow dump and it looks more like winter than fall. I do love the cooler temps, especially when the sun decides to shine. The photo inspiration for our new challenge is beautiful! I decided to finally use Magnificent Maple, which I purchased from the 2013 Holiday Mini Catalog. Can you believe that I never even mounted this stamp? Disgraceful!! I always knew that it would be the perfect Autumn card so decided to use it for this great color theme challenge.

Also, Holidays & Wishes, purchased when I was collecting stamps but not using them yet LOL, came from the 2007 Fall & Winter Collection Catalog. I also used Full of Blessings from 2012 Holiday Mini Catalog and Gratitude for Days from 2014 Holiday Mini Catalog. Isn’t it fun to use lots of stamps from your collection? It’s exactly why I have such a hard time giving them up!! Using some tools that are current in our catalog, I combined them with some retired products that really brought out the image in my mind.
