Lovely Little Web We Weave...

Here is a clean and simple card that is inspired by Halloween. Here with our Spider Web Folder, Big Shot, Illuminate stamp pad, Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and Whisper White and Black papers (oh and a paper cutter) this easy card has a big impact!

Running a 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" black cardstock through the Web folder and Big Shot you have a plain card. Running the surface of the raised part with the Illuminate stamp pad from our Holiday Mini it now is a shimmery dramatic look. It highlights the raise portion and is subtle enough to not be in your face.

Cutting it every 1 1/2" you have equal portions if the web. Using the Stazon Black ink to stamp the Happy Halloween from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set at the bottom center allows me to build up the web w/out fighting the black cardstock.

Layout the now 1 1/2" slices of shimmery web and then use SNAIL adhesive to adhere it down on the Whisper White card. Pulling up the larger pearl from the Jewels Basic Adhesive Backed Pearls it brings a little elegance and glamour to this simple but fun card!! With a few quick steps, few supplies a clean card is easy to make! I know even my mom, who distastes spiders, would like this card!

Thanks to the LNS for the clean card and white space challenge. This is a fun literal look for this weeks challenge.

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
