Booty w/out layers

The StampinUpLNS Challenge this week was a One Layer Wow card. Going without layers, bling and ribbon just about kills me. Lol. Here is my card for the day, what do you think?

With Whisper White paper I tried, first, black ink and this great Boot Stamp from a favorite stamp set of mine. I then used my Color Coach (a favorite tool of mine) to pull this Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard and Garden Green combo. With my Stampin Write Markers I colored in the circles and belt of the boot. (The results are Ok but a little flat and dull, for my tastes.)

I didn't care for the lightness of it do I then redid it on another card with the Versa Mark and Black embossing powder. I then colored the circles and boot belt in. I like this look way better. (Note the shine and dimension, how dark it gets, more like a Patent Leather Boot, don't you think??).

With our Simply Scored Board I created these two lines going up two sides.

A simple and fun card (good stamps will do that for you) and a simple, clean look. Now, go shake yourrr boot-y and stamp something fun! (Should this be called a Flat Booty?? Lol)

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
