Animal tastic

The LNS Stampers challenged us to go Animal with our cards.... So this is how I respond. Lol

I mentally created this as I took off my baby's lil sassy shoes... I wish iiiii had shoes like these lol. So with a Whisper White base for this card I took and cut the Basic Black to match its size. I then tore strips to create the zebra stripes.

I couldn't leave well enough alone, lol, so I hadddd to add a dash of bright pink glitter. How?? Simply take a drop (litterally ONE drop of re-inker) and a glob of our Dazzling Diamonds adhesive. Here I used Melon Mambo re-inker. I painted the side of each stripe with this now mixed glue that is both Melon Mambo and Dazzling!!

Here I stamped the Cute and Curly Thinking Of You with black ink (love our new ink pads!!) on Whisper White paper. I ripped it out and with a Dauber I colored the edges with Melon Mambo Ink. I love how the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive sets it above the stripes.

So this card is all Animal Tastic, sassy n fun. I hope you go a lil wild with yourrrr next card! Rrrrroarrrr! Lol. (My kids act like they are from a zoo, after all!! Lol)

(Capturing the glitter in a photo is soooo challenging!!)

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
