Unnnnn Resistable

I love my various classes in Stampin' and craftin'. It nurtures my heart to create something with my hands! The ladies in my Parks and Rec class wanted to learn some coloring techniques and brayer techniques... The Crayon Resist, Masking and Brayer techniques were a must to work with!

I nabbed my Color Coach and went outside my usual color profile and started with our InColor (thru this year only!!) Calypso Coral paper. The CC (Color Coach) suggested Baja Breeze and Basic Grey as compatible.

Here I stamped this Postage Due stamp set stamped with Basic Grey on Very Vanilla paper allowed for me to POP this flower out and tech the Masking technique.

I used out Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker to color in the flower. I then used a White Crayon to highlight some of the bike and script lines. I stamped the flower on a sticky note and cut it out to make a cover that will mask the flower.

I loaded the Brayer with Baja Breeze in and covered the paper. Removing the mask the flower now POPs out and the crayon resisted the ink allowing for the bike and lines highlighted to pop out! Love the Resist Technique!!

I used the Ex Libis background stamp to create the frame on the Calypso Coral card base. I then layered the Post Card... I like that this can create a frame! Who knew?!?!!

I punched out the Paris stamp and with the Postage punch. I snagged some Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon and our lil adhesive backed pearls to create this lil embellishment!

A fun and technique loaded card. It's out of my comfort zone in color but its fun to think outside the box! How would youoooo load a card with technique?? I hope you feel inspire to think outside of the box!


  1. This might be outside your comfort zone, but you did a great job! This is a beautiful card! One of these days I'll learn to use my brayer properly. I've used it, but like you, it's out of my comfort zone.


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
