Christmas Card Stack Resulted In....

Country Greetings - a natural and 'raw' stocking... I love the twine unraveled... quick and easy - under 10 mintues!!!
The Designer Series Paper is my inspiration and I masked these trees!! Simply Stamp and stamp again on a post-it - cut it out and layer it on what you want to stay present/front... then stamp - remove the masking and BAM - a quick lil tip...

I made snow trimmed leaves on the trees with our amazing Frost White Shimmer Paint... fun!!

Ahhhh - one of my favorite looks!! Embossing metal on a metalic paper!! I simply used Bravo Burgundy and stamped the sentiment inside and the snowflakes on the exterior (a tri folded card). I then stamped this Snow Swirled tree in Gold on Gold Paper... with Dimensionals on one half and it's a lil door of a pretty card! Love me some Bravo Burgundy and Gold - don't you??

Inside - the embossing makes for a stunning card!!

I LOVE how this came out!! I took Glossy White Paper and embossed with Glassy Glaze this Branch Out bare tree and the snow flakes... I then took this blue and sponged it in a swirling motion... it created this blue background, snow 'floor' and the embossing came THRU with the white below... another quickie card (under 10 minutes!!) and so Pretty!!

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
