I adore copper.  With this year's introduction of copper.  Copper heat embossing powder, accents, foil sheets and metallic string!  With coordinating products it is easy to create a cohesive and stylish handmade card.

Create this Fall acorns card by:
~  Prepare your Very Vanilla card stock for heat embossing by wiping the surface with the Embossing Buddy.  
~  Stamp this swirl image from the Star of Light stamp set in Versa Mark ink.
~ Cover the surface with the Copper Embossing Powder.  Shake off the excess (the powder should stick to the Versa Mark stamped image, any dusting brush off before heat setting).
~  Hold the heat tool at a 45% angle and keep it steady on high until the image morphs and changes into a metallic raised image, moving slowly until each area does so.
~  Stamp the Nuts about You greeting in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla and punch out with the coordinating Acorn Builder punch.
~  Punch an acorn from the Copper Foil Sheets.
~With Paper Snips, cut apart the Burlap Ribbon for these fun, textured strings and secure one of the pretty copper Mini Pine cones Embellishments.
~  Adhere over the heat embossed copper swirls with the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.

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
