Polka Dots and a Sweet Witch

I love the LNS challenge of dots and stripes this week. Here is a nod to this week's challenge! I love this color combo for Fall and since Fall is tomorrow, I couldn't resist another use of it.

With our Polka Dot DSP I used the Pumpkin Pie set. This is a Early Espresso card base and Very Vanilla for the inside of the card and the paper I stamped this cute lil Witch on. I ran a 4"x4" Pumpkin Pie paper through the the Perfect Polka Dots folder and my Big Shot.

Creating the 1 1/2" strip of Polka Dotted Pumpkin Pie DSP Lolly I used our amazing Simply Scored Board. I then scored it at every 1/4" and used the hot glue gun to piece it together and then adhere it to the card. Repeat after me, hot glue guns are HOT!! I warn people over and over, then often burn my own hand lol. Caution is a must!!

So I stamped this cute lil girl from the Greeting Card Kids stamp set with Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla paper. I punched out with the extra large circle punch 2 1/2" size. I colored her in with Blush Blossom, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Markers. I used the hot glue gun to adhere it to the Lolly.

So this sweet lil girl and card really made my day! My oldest two have this rich dark hair and curls, this is a nod to my Gloria and Joana, too!! I hope you feel fall and can smile at such a sweet card! Should I have added more dots or stripes?? What would you do with this paper??


  1. What an adorable card, and great use of the designer paper of polka dots for the challenge with LNS. Love everything about the card. Thanks for playing with LNS this week.


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
