Everything about fall is my favorite. What is yours? 

If it is all about crafting check out this fabulous and
fantastic fall kit Scrapping for Less has this month. 
Jump in and hop along for some great inspiration.

For my first card I used Sketch #1 with Collection One.
I started with a black card front adhered to a white card base and I added a layer of Lemon Drop card stock on top. I layered a piece of the diagonal striped patterned paper from the Let's Talk Bees patterned paper by Scrapping for Less onto a black mat, also part of the paper pack. I adhered that to the card base along with a strip of black patterned paper and set the card aside.
I stamped the adorable Bumblebee Marci stamp using Gina K.'s Amalgam black ink so that I could color the image with Copic markers and watercolor with Distress Crayons. The Banana Split subscription includes a few sheets of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor sheets and either a Mustard Seed or Wild Honey Distress Crayon. For my card, I used both the Wild Honey and Mustard Seed distress crayons. I also used the following Copic markers ~ N1, N3, N5, N7, E0000, E000, E00, E55, E57, E74, R20, G14.
I die cut the image/sentiment with a stitched rectangle die and popped it up on the card. I added a few sequins and called this one done. 

For my second card I used Sketch #2 with Collection Two.
For this card I really wanted to include a lot of pieces of the patterned paper.. I just love the rich colors! I cut the patterned papers from the Fall Breeze paper pack by Photo Play and mat them all on Hot Fudge card stock. I adhered all of my layers to a Tangy Orange card base and set it aside. 
I stamped this awesome Scarecrow Marci stamp, made exclusively for Scrapping for Less by La-La Land Crafts, on Neenah card stock and colored her in with the following Copic markers ~ Hair - YR23, YR24, E99; Clothes - BG45, BG72, BG75, YR07, YR27; Flowers - YR15, Y35, E17; Boots - YR27, E17, E74; Bird - N3, N5, N7, YR68; Skintone - E0000, E000, E00, R20.
I die cut the focal image with a circle die and sponged a bit of brown ink around the edges. I stamped the sentiment and die cut it with a banner die. I then die cut another banner using a slightly larger banner die and mat the sentiment. I popped up the focal image and the sentiment on the card using foam tape. I trimmed off the edge of the banner sentiment so it was flush with the edge of the card and there you have card #2.

For my third card I used Sketch #3 with Collection Three.
For this card I die cut the fun coffee print patterned paper from the Stay Awhile patterned paper pack by Bo Bunny. I mat the patterned paper on a piece of Hot Fudge card stock that I adhered to a white card base. I added a strip of the pretty floral patterned paper (sadly, not much of it shows). I then stamped the beautiful girl image from the exclusive Teresa Talks Fall stamp set by Scrapping for Less in Memento tuxedo black ink and colored it in with the following Copic markers ~ Hair - E40, E43, YR30, YR31; Sweater - V91, V95, V99; Pants - B37, B97; Skintone - E0000, E000, E51, RV21 (lips); Cup - E81, YR15, YR68; Outlining of Image - W00, W1.
I trimmed down the focal image and mat it on a piece of Tangy Orange card stock. I popped it up on the card using foam tape and set the card aside. This collection includes a few round kraft tags and I thought it would be fun to use that for the sentiment. I stamped it in VersaMark ink and then heat embossed a fine black embossing powder. I borrowed the twine from Collection Two to tie a double bow that I adhered to the top of the tag. I popped up the tag on the card and then adhered the beautiful Petaloo purple flower using a combination of glue dots and multi medium matte. To finish the card off I added a little a sequin to the center of the flower.

For my fourth card I used Sketch #4 with Collection Four.
The stamp set for Collection Four is my absolute favorite! It's another exclusive Scrapping for Less stamp set called Give a Hoot? It includes a couple owls, a few flowers, a partial tree or branch, and some really adorable Owl pun sentiments. I used this set for a Sneak Peek card earlier in the week (you can check that out here, if you missed it). 
When I saw the soft colors of the Amber Moon papers by Prima that are included in this collection, I just knew I want to make a bit of a scene with the tree and the smallest owl. I used my last card front piece of Hot Fudge card stock to add my layers of patterned paper and Tangy Orange card stock. I then stamped the tree and owl on a scrap piece of Neenah card stock. I wanted the tree to be taller in my card so I masked the bottom portion of the tree and drew longer lines using a Memento tuxedo black dual marker. I colored the tree using the following Copic markers ~ E43, E47, E49, R05, R08, R14, R37, YR15, YR68, Y06, Y17. I then fussy cut it out and colored the flower using the same reds, yellows, and oranges that I used in the leaves of the tree. I fussy cut the flower and adhered a sequin to the center. I then stamped the little owl using the following Copic markers ~ YR0000, YR21, YR24, YR27, YR31, E21, E23, E25. I fussy cut him out and set him aside with the tree and the flower. Using a Fiskars Fingertip Precision knife I cut around the bottom portion of the patterned paper that includes some foliage, a pumpkin, and a bird. Every once in a while I would tuck the tree in there to see how far I needed to cut. Once I had that piece ready, I adhered the tree using a liquid glue and then I adhered the whole piece onto a mat of Whip Cream card stock. I adhered the owl and the flower to the piece and then noticed the little gold leaves in the package of sequins. I added more than a few of those to the tree and a couple on the 'ground'. I then stamped the sentiment and die cut it using a banner die. I die cut another banner just slightly larger and mat the sentiment. I trimmed the sentiment piece down and popped it up on the card. My final touch for this card was a couple of gold leafs on the sentiment banner. I just adore this card! I hope you do, too!
