Have a Wonderful Wreath this Thanksgiving!

FALL IS HERE!!  It's Time... Go For it!!  Whip out ALL of your Fall decorations (even the ones you were intending to pull out and hadn't yet), Start that Oven and Grab those Pumpkin Bread recipes off of Pinterest!!  Yipppeee... it's Fall and it's going to Sparkle with the changing of colors, cooling of weather, upcoming celebrations and the work-outs required to burn them off - eek!!

Prepared for the Holiday Season?!?!  Join Me with a Fun Selection of Classes that will prepare you, in person or virtually! 
 
Here I wanted to embrace the cooling of weather, changing of leaves, and sparkle that fresh changing leaves embraces.  Can't you just smell the beginnings of Fall??  This Wonderful Wreath stamp set (#132748 Holiday pg. 34) can cover all of the seasons.  Here it celebrates the start of Fall!
The Color Coach (#130118) is a favorite tool of mine!  It pairs great combinations so that you can have a new look with the colors you currently have.  Grabbing my Crumb Cake card stock (#120953), Very Vanilla card stock (#101650), Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker (#105115), and So Saffron Ink (#126957) this card comes to life!
Inking the Wonderful Wreath in So Saffron, then accenting a couple of leaves with Pumpkin Pie ink, taking the marker and thumping the edge (see the Video Below on how to add color with this cool technique) you'd be amazed at how it comes to life and toasts Fall!
 
Huff on the inked image, stamp and liberally cover with Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss Powder (#101930), if done when freshly stamped, quickly, and heat set with our Heat Tool (#129053) for an additional sparkle and bling to this card.
See the Thumping Technique here:
Using Crystal Effects (#101055) to add dots of liquid glue, cover with the Orange Stampin' Glitter (#132206 Holiday pg.20) for More BLING (baby!!).
Pops of Color and Sparkle, oh so fun!
Rock N Roll this Fall!!  Ok so this technique (see the video below) is a great way to add an umbrae look that is oh-so popular right now.  Adding a variegated look is easy and sure to wow.
See the Rock n Roll Technique here:
 
Add Color and MORE bling in an accent with our adhesive-backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) that I colored a bold orange with a permanent marker.  I love that you can change up the look of these stones or pearls oh-so easily!!
Pulling it all together, thanks to the Color Coach's help, this Crumb Cake card (embossed with a fun Woodgrain embossing folder (#127821) and my Big Shot (#113439) for texture.  I tend to go more towards nature when the Fall Season rolls around, lol.  Like a front door or a stunning tree and it's leaves in a beautiful crown, this card is sure to warm up anyone's day.

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
