Umbrella Day, a little shelter from the storm

Umbrellas... with so many patterns and styles, some that open one way or another, some that fold, some that become walking sticks... they are a fun and useful accessory.  Today is Umbrella Day y'all!  In California we woke to a beautiful fog and the promise of rain on the horizon (yay!).  Celebrate life and this accessory with our #365ReasonsToCelebrate tour.

Create with a cool technique!
~  Using the Shimmer White card stock (4" x 5-1/4") Spritz water on it with the Stampin' Spritzer.
~  Using the Brusho Color Crystals, in Prussian Blue, and sprinkle upon the spritzed (not saturated) card stock.
~  Spritz again and blot with a napkin to achieve this burst of color and texture.
TECHNIQUE:  Here is a cool technique!!
~  Emboss this Brusho Colored Shimmer Paper (after it has dried or using the Heat Tool) in the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
~  Using a fine sand paper, sand the top lightly to reveal the white under the Brusho Color!!
*  This peak-a-boo white will resemble rain or snow while giving a cool texture and contrast.

~  Stamp the Weather Together stamp set umbrella in Black Archival ink on the Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper.
~  Die Cut with the Umbrella Weather Framelits and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
~  Assemble with Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals.
~  Stamp the sentiment with Black Archival ink on a strip of paper to add to the card.

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
