Welcome Fall Super Saturday Scraps

HI everyone! Wow this month is flying by here it is already the second Saturday. Which means it is time to get out those scraps and join in the Hiding In My Craft Room challenge. This week the challenge is being sponsored by The Cutting Cafe. You can find SVG cutting files as well as files in the PDF format. One person who joins in the challenge will win 3 sets from The Cutting Cafe.

For my inspiration piece today I used several images from the "Welcome Fall" collection. Each set come in zip files and there are a lot of images to choose from.

I started by covering my card base with a scrap of Kraft card stock. Then I added a scrap of red. I printed the Fall sentiment on copy paper and then holding it up to the light I taped my orange scrap over the printing using  low tack tape. Then printed the sentiment on the orange. I used a pencil to color the leaves. I printed the apples on scrap designer paper after adhering the paper to copy paper using low tack tape once again.. The pattern is really subtle. I colored the stems and leaves with pencil. Then cut the apples out.  The basket was printed on wrinkled brown packing paper once again adhered with tape to copy paper first. I used my finger and Vintage Photo distress ink to color the basket. I also used a color pencil. I adhered my apples to the back before adhering the basket to my card front.

When printing on scrap paper make sure you have  taped it down good to copy paper or card stock so you don't jam it in your printer. You can also print on fabric using the same technique as well as printing on ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to come back next week for another challenge. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again.
