Boy this summer just flew right past me this year. I haven't had much time to blog, hop, or stamp much. I was hopping the cool weather of fall would help get me in the mood for some stamping fun, but the hot weather seems to be hanging around for a while so, I have not had much time to get any stamping in.
Good thing my stamping llama friends are around, that usually helps me out. Last year's Fall-I-Days series of hops seemed to be pretty popular and fun, so it is back again this fall. Our group this month is small in size but mighty in ideas. Hopefully you have arrived here from Jackie's blog. Great projects, right! If not, that's fine. This little hop is easy to follow by using the buttons at the end of this post.
I have a couple of autumn projects to share with you today. Both of these projects were projects that my stamp club gals created at this month's gathering. I have had a stack of techniques that I have been collecting and wanting to share with them and we have had a great time with this year's catalog, Holiday catalog, and tons of techniques.
The first card uses the rock and roll stamping technique. We have done this technique a couple of times but it has been a while so time to bring it out again. For this one the maple leaf was stamped in Tangerine Tango and the edges rolled in Soft Suede. I think this is a great technique to use for fall foliage.

For the second card, we used the sunburst or starburst technique. This creates the brighter rays of sunshine on the card and can be used to create some beautiful sunscapes. I kept it simple with this card and just used Daffodil Delight for the rays and sky light. This card can be stepped up by adding a darker accent color to the rays to create the sunshine at dawn or dusk. The masking and sponging technique was also used to create the hillside and sky along with the sun.
