Baby Ruth Birthday Inspiration

When my oldest sister's birthday came a calling... I knew it'd be fun to create a card for her with some rich colors, metals, jewels... HERE is my result, inspired by a candy bar that was one of our Dad's favorite candy bars. 
Can YOU guess which candy bar that is?!?!
With Night of Navy card stock for the card base, Silver embossing powder and our Heat Gun, Curly Cute sentiments, Fine Feathers stamp set, Rhinestone adhesive backed Basic Jewels (All from the Idea Book & Catalog) and
Permanent Markers in Blue and Red.
YUP, our Dad loved Baby Ruth candy bars.  They may not be the most popular of candy bars but I had a good laugh at the '4 grams of Protein' label - lol - does that make it a healthy candy bar?!?! (bahahahah) 
Make it SHINE!  With the Silver Embossing Powder!  Have FUN with folded Aluminum Foil (from my kitchen, lol), run through my Big Shot (Idea Book & Catalog) and the Lacy Brocade (Spring Mini) Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for this lacy, elegant embossed bar of shiny silver!
(By folding the Aluminum Foil, the delicate material is now stronger and easier to use!)

Accenting this card with color is FUN when you take a Permanent Marker and color the adhesive backed Pearls and Rhinestones from our Basic Jewels Packs!  They are top quality and look so rich and lovely, showing luxuriously on our top quality jewels!
Tie it up with our Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine wrapped around the foil for an additional dash of color.
Rich, Elegant, FREE of Calories (lol)...
My family isn't big on chocolate, my sister isn't big on sweets in general.... but this rich and lovely card is sure to sweeten her birthday (without adding to anyone's waist line - lol).

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
