Natural Composition is Naturally Lovely

I love, love, loveeee the new Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). With a wood texture, think like card stock, the Pre Glossy Heat embossed texture, the patterns... What is NOT to love??

So last week the StampinUpLNStampers challenged us to go One Layered with a Wow factor. I created this lovely 3x3" card for my Parks n Rec class and we had FUN with it!

I punched out these two designs, a large Flower and our new Elegant Butterfly. I then used a sponge and rubbed in Wild Wasabi in with this punched out "Stencil" flower. I overlapped the Butterfly over the flower and did the same with the Chocolate Chip ink.

I stamped this Perfectly Penned Happy Birthday in the Chocolate Chip ink as well. I then stenciled the butterfly onto the envelope. I love that coordinated sneak peak an envelope can allow.

The Heat Embossed texture will not hold the rubbed on ink so this yummy pattern popped thru the flowers, butterfly and the sentiment. It was a favorite of the staff at the Borchard center (the two Patty/I's fought over it lol).

This is a simple and cool technique. When you have amazing paper like this, you can't go wrong! (If this is wrong, I don't want to be right. Lol)


  1. Jamie,
    I LOVE the new Natural Composition DSP already but this card just takes a whole other spin on it sooooo pretty.

  2. This is another WOW card! Thanks for playing with LNS!


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
