Happy Fall!

I found a new (to me) challenge and this month they've asked us to use paper-piecing, so I wanted to give it a try.  The challenge is from Happy Little Stampers.

I used a Paper Smooches stamp that I bought with the intention of paper-piecing the tree for all the seasons, but never followed through, only used it for a summer tree HERE.  Here's my autumn version:


supplies: white cardstock, various dps from Doodlebug and BoBunny 6" pads, Paper Smooches Summer Groves clear stamp set, sentiment from The Craft's Meow Fall Blessings, Simon's Stitched Rectangles die, Die-Namics Snow Drifts dies


This was really a fun project, finding papers that mimic the colors of the leaves right now.  You can bet that I'll be playing with this set again with pinks when spring gets here!
