A lil Rustic Love

I live in an Equestrian Neighborhood... I love seeing the horses daily walking around our neighborhood - we aren't in the country but our lil neck of the world is... this card was inspired by my neighbors who walk their horses about, who exercises their horses in the Equestrian Park nearby... I love the Rope wrapped around, the Antique Brad that resembles the horses accents on their reigns... giving a lil Rustic Love this year!
TWO different Brads... adds to the FUN of making this card slightly different...
Here, with Red Riding Hood paper based card, Cherry Cobbler layered (monochromatic mates) and on Very Vanilla I stamped w/ Red Riding Hood ink the 'Be My Valentine' stamp available in the Occassions Mini. Using our Jumbo wheel I rolled it in Red Riding Hood and rolled it across the bottom of the card. The Antique brad reminds me of the accent buttons on the Reigns of Horses... the Twine Wrapped around reminds me of the ropes used around these amazing animals... the results.. a lil rustic but oh so lovely!

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
