Falling for Autumn and hiding from Irma!

As we are finishing up preparing for Hurricane Irene, I snuck in a few hours in the craft room!  Jennifer McGuire did a blog post on Stained Glass Window Stamping and I feel in love with it.  I didn't have the supplies she did but did come across my Newton's Nook fall leaves and it worked perfectly.  Since I used stamps in each of these cards, I'm entering these in the Simon Says Stamp Monday & Wednesday Challenges of 'Stamp It'.
This first card includes a Memory Box 'Thank You' sentiment.  I used the heat resist acetate and embossed two leaves in gold embossing powder.  I die cut the maple leave entirely and then half of the oak leaf.  Underneath is watercolor paper that I blended a few colors to make.  This card will be entered into the Memory Box Challenge #28 'Falling For Autumn Cards'

I enjoyed and love the technique so much, I tried another one using handmade paper.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I am entering this into the Rubbernecker Stamp Challenge 'Monochromatic'

Happy Crafting!
