Miss Muffet Sat on a Tuffet...

I actually really like spiders! I had a tarantula as a pet for a while when I was young. My mom HATES spiders.. It made for an interesting home lol.

This lovely and FUN card reminds me of this poem. Using the Kidoodles stamp set, Basic Grey cardstock for the base, Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP from the holiday mini, Spider Web folder and Big Shot, Heat Gun and Silver embossing powder... Don't forget the Googlies Googly eyes from our Holiday Mini!!

I love that our DSP is double sided and coordinates with all the colors from the packet. So the Black looks smashing with the grey side of the DSP. I like, too, that this looks a lil mosaic and is a nod to the LNS challenge this week.

Embossing this lil spider (who sat down beside her) with two looks, on the Grey makes the paper look more like silver. Silver on grey is a great lil elegance for such a fun card. The silver on black is more daring and adds a dimension to the grey and black card.

Our Illuminate Glimmer Watermark shimmery Stampin' pad from the Holiday mini is glazed over the raised web. This adds a slight shimmer and elegance to this whimsical addition.

The 1-3/4" scallop circle punch is a tight fit but fits and looks so ideal! I adore the whimsey of the Googlies and how it really makes for a FUN card!

Happy Halloween! Thanks for looking!! Comments are soooo appreciated!

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
