Going Natural at the Comfort Cafe

Wanting to embrace the Fall Season, I found the Comfort Cafe DSP and it made me feeeeeel Fall!

I used the DSP color recipe/list (I love how easy it makes to create a card!). It has Cajun Craze and Soft Suede. I grabbed the Naturals White paper as my neutral. With our Woodgrain Background stamp, the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, from the Holiday Mini, it was a quick way to create a tree look andddd feel!! I stamped, with Soft Suede, the background on the Naturals White paper then textured it with my Big Shot.

Summer Starfruit is in the packet, not this page, but the packet. I used the 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon to add an accent color.

With my Heat Gun, Gold Embossing powder and the Comfort Cafe paper I stamped "Friend" from the Affection Collection stamp set in our Holiday Mini. I then used our Scallop Oval punch and Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to have it add depth.

I knew it needed something.... An embellishment of some sort.... I then snagged our yummy and rich Champagne Glimmer Paper and the flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. With Mini Glue dots I added 3 to the lower corner. It emulated the flowers in the DSP and Sentiment accent.

I know this card is allll Fall and has the texture to reinforce that! I hope you feel Fall, it's here! (Whoot! Whoot!)

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
