Before I get on with today's post I just wanted to remind you to comment on this post for the chance to win my blog candy if you have not done so already.
I needed to complete some design team work for H&M Stamps and today's color challenge fit in perfectly. The first card I made used paper piecing for it.
I have very little of the new in color papers and today's challenge called for using 2 of them- kiwi kiss and baja breeze. I am very blessed to have received a 1/2 sheet of them from wish RAK. Well, I went through some of my dp and was thankful that I found some in my new Basic Grey collection that matched the colors exactly so I was able to stretch what I have. Anyway, I stamped the adorable little elephant from one of H&M Stamps newly released sets on my patterned paper and cut it out. I used my circle nestabilities and adhered my elephant to the kiwi circle. I cut 2 triangles of patterned paper and stitched them onto my vanilla card base. My sentiment was punched out with my word window punch.

This past weekend I bought 2 bushels of apples. Man is that A LOT of apples! I had no idea how many that really was. Being in NY we are pretty fortunate because they are plentiful this time of year here and each bushel was only $5. I still can't believe it. Anyway, I have been making apple everything this past weekend and included in the everything was apple butter. So this story was brought about because I thought I would give some apple butter to the new neighbors a few doors down when they move in. Along with the apple butter I will give them this card:
I stamped the house first and masked it to stamp my tree and then the stone path. I colored it with my prismapencils and gamsol and also used some chalks. I stamped my sentiment in the corner and double matted my image. I pierced the strip behind the image and added brads to the corners.
