Lacy Fall Wishes

Fall is in the Air! We were mid 60*'s today!! (I know, woooo, lol)? I couldn't resist doing an ULTIMATE Fall glam card!

Grabbing my Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Holiday Mini, my Big Shot, Versa Mark stamp pad, Iridescent Ice embossing glitter powder and this STUNNING Hostess Four Seasons stamp set! The Cajun Craze cardstock, ink and my Shimmer White paper, the large 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch and the Adhesive Backed Rhinestones just are the staples for this card.

Running my Cajun Craze paper through the Big Shot and Lacy Brocade embossing folder is easy and the results are Amazing!! Now to take it UP a notch (or 5) graze the top of this with the Versa Mark pad. Liberally cover with the Iridescent Ice and then heat set with our quiet, easy and pretty heat embossing gun. (Can you just ohhh and ahhh with me here??!!?!?)

I adore this on its own! Now, celebrate Fall with me here!! Ok so I Love butterflies! So instead of the stamp, in this set, with the Fall leaves, I used the Spring stamp with branches and butterflies. Cajun Craze ink on the Shimmer paper really makes it embrace Fall.

The Scallop Punch is ideal for a cool look and fits all the stamps in this set. I'm not a big bird person but this set has the sweetest birds in the center! The Shimmer paper is a very subtle shimmer but ties into shimmer of the card. The lil dash of BLING of the rhinestone in the center of the bird wing just ties it all together! The Stampin' Dimensional adhesive is necessary (and like 4 of them) to grab the card through the texture from the embossing folder and the glittery ice.

Don't forget to tie the envelope in with your card!! Here I inked once, stamped the bottom left corner an them kept stamping as the ink faded. This Stampin' Off creates a fun fluttery feel to the set! (Like a falling leaf!)

So, embrace Fall with me! Give this to your hostess or family members for Thanksgiving. The LNS challenge of Thanksgiving cards this week gets a nod from me! Happy Fall Y'all!

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
