Pumpkins Brighten My Day!

I loooove Pumpkins! I decorate with, drink pumpkin flavored coffee all year long and cook w/pumpkin purée all year long! I loooove Pumpkins!

Maybe this is one of the reasons that I adore Fall! The cooler weather, pumpkin scented candles and flavored foods, the ability to bake again (lol)... This is me tipping my hat to Fall, Pumpkins and the LNStampers challenge of Wood Cards this week.

Pumpkin Pie Paper is the base to this card. Early Espresso Core'dinations paper run thru the Big Shot and Woodgrain Embossing Folder. Sanding the Core paper shows the lighter core and adds to the dimension of the wood and this card.

The new Full Of Blessings stamp set from the Holiday mini is just soooo lovely! Here it shows pumpkin wreathed fine details, rolling farm lands and simple wishes! Stampin' the simple sentiment Give Thanks and the farm scene with Early Espresso ink on the Pumpkin Pie paper.

Layering the new Core'dinations Early Espresso Woodgrain embossed paper on the center of the card with SNAIL adhesive.

The wreath is stamped with Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla paper. The Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers color in the wreath. Using our precision snips it is soooo easy to cut this delicate wreath! Wrapping our 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Daffodil Delight wraps this card up perfectly! The Stampin' Dimensional adhesive adds to the depth of the card while holding it all together.

Can you smell the Pumpkin of the season?? This card embraces Fall, a wonderful season here in Southern California! Happy Fall Y'all!


  1. I love this card Jamie!!! Especially how your have the stamped scene peeking out behind the Core'dinations card stock. And you already know I LOVE FALL!!

  2. Beautiful card Jamie and just perfect for our challenge at LNS this week.

  3. Super job. I love the addition of the wood and the image peeking out behind it. Kind of like a big tree in the forefront with a wreath on it. Great idea! Thanks for playing along with us on LNS challenges 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
