Trick or Treat




Hide ho gang... or should I say boooo?? I don't do 'Halloween' in our home... we're more of Harvest People... so I was tossed this challenge by LNS to do a Halloween card. Huh... what to do?!? I then mulled one of my favorite stamp sets over (see the last week challenge) and decided - let's show the versatility of this amazing set!! So - here - what do you think??


I embossed clear tree and (borrowed - thanks Christine) hostess four seasons set. I cut their lil circles out using our old Caluzzol. I took a portion of a sponge and sponged Silver on the paper and wiped the embossed part clean. I then layered on Silver paper and using our amazing Night and Day Specialty Designer Series Paper cut strips and layered under. I thought... why not mix this and the Mojo challenge?? I then dipped mini glue dots in silver fine glitter and placed along the bottom. (I did switch up the page from the mojo a tad...) This great tree set is on our Dormant List and avail to purchase... so isn't that simply marvelous?!?


I hope you have some inspiration and fun with this card!! Happy Harvest folks. Huggssss... ~ J

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
