Candy Challenge ~ Sweetens my day in 10 lil minutes!!

Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and Summer Sun...

Does this add up to a Reeses??
Silver embossing on Silver paper... so stunning...
This looks more like the York that I love... but the other is more elegant... hummm

Stamping Brilliant Blue on Ribbon or Embossing White on Brilliant Blue... both look tasty!!
So - a sweet challenge to start my week. Finding my embossing gun was impossible (where oh where did I place that thing??). I called a friend and snagged her gun to whip out these cards - the last day of the challenge (ever the procrastinator... lol). I'm not a big Chocolate fan - if I do have some it's usually covering something of strength (Like York's Pep Patties or Reeses's Peanut Butter cups).
I thought... humm - I've missed my updating to the blog I'll do double duty and make these 10 minute cards!! So they ALL are!! Starting with my Silver duo - it's such a quick and easy card!! Stamping w/ Versa Mark the trees across the bottom of a Silver card stock. The card is longer than the stamp so I just kept the image going and re stamped the image towards the end... I embossed w/ Silver powder (don't you just love this look?).
Torn - I snagged some Brilliant Blue paper and embossed the sentiment with White. I then made the 'flagged' ends w/ my snips and then with the SNAIL adhesive I made it look like it was blowing in the wind.
I then snagged our white Organza ribbon and tied it on with a lil swish of a double knot. I then Stamped the sentiment with Brilliant Blue on the ribbon. I like the elegance of this look... but as my hubby pointed out - the blue with white embossed looks more like the York.
NOW... knowing I love Reeses, too... I snagged my Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun papers. I cut the Chocolate Chip and punched the edge. I than ran thru the crimper. (I think it looks like the wrapper the cup is in - don't you??) I then adhered it to the Pumpkin Pie paper (John said the Only Orange would have been better - but I didn't mind... it was more my desired paper look.)
I then stamped the Tree on the Summer Sun paper in Chocolate Chip. Using the Pumpkin Pie I stamped the leaves to look like that of fall leaves. I flicked the edges in Chocolate Chip ink to look like the writing 'Reeses' on the wrapper. I stamped 'Give Thanks' on top - and finished it off by adhering the tree w/ Stampin Dimensionals.
Simple, Easy, Elegant cards - 10 minutes or less each!! I hope you are inspired - now whip out your favorite candies and make a card to two... or three... Have a SWEET day!! ~ J
(My BFF answered when asked which she liked best... 'You know I'm not one for Mint... I like the one that represented the Reeses...' she was the First to reply the Taste Point of View..)

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
