Monochromatic Challenge

Hey gang - I've joined this fun Yahoo group w/ Challenges and such... They challenged me to do a Monochromatic card and this is what I came up with!! I took our FUN Inspired by Nature, I grabbed my Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel... Chocolate Chip for the Ink and the boarder around the words on the Creamy Caramel paper... Taking a punched 1 1/4" circle in V.Vanilla and placed it back on the reinked stamp... lining it up w/ the image on Creamy Caramel...

I usually only do Stampin' Up! products but couldn't resist running this thru the CuttleBug 'Bird Call' embossing plate.... not sure about the embossed bird I punched some butterflies w/ the Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch on Close to Cocoa Designer Series Paper...

Not sure which I liked... hummmm.... but I do like the card.

Stamps: Inspired by Nature
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla (making it a yummy sounding card, eh?)
Ink: Chocolate Chip

Challenge: Make YOUR own Monochromatic Card (a card in the same color family) and see how a simple and 'plain' design can look peaceful and pretty... it's a good card for a guy or a girl...

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

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
