Popping a Poppy (or two) handmade card

California is known for their poppies.. usually around my birthday in April the state blooms in a majestic collection of bright orange poppies with yellow mustard and purple lavender.  

Did you know.. the poppies Will NOT Bloom with out a freeze?  The seeds need a harsh freeze to break the outer shell so that it will bloom in the Spring. 

Kind of like life, isn't it?  Our shell has to break to bloom something anew.

Creating this beautiful handmade card on our recent LIVE was so much fun. 
See this Specific Video LIVE here.  (Life is real even on my lives, lol.)
I adore this new Peaceful Poppies suite - don't you?!

Dynamic color and oh so easy to create with!
~  Die-Cut the Poppy Moments dies, the large black flower, the black smaller flower outline and in Poppy Parade the smaller flower.  Die-Cut the Mossy Meadow in the smaller of the leaves 'shadow' and the larger in the Old Olive .
~  Adhere the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (3-3/4" x 5") over Basic Black card stock (4" x 5-1/4") with SNAIL adhesive and on the Poppy Parade card stock base (scored at 4-1/4" cut at 5-1/5").
~  Adhere the flower together with the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive over a Silicone Craft Sheet, apply a second Silicone Craft Sheet (these are a MUST Have, in my opinion, in all crafting!)  across the top to secure the adhesive while protecting your fingers.  
~  Adhere the black larger flower background over the card with SNAIL adhesive.
~  Tie on the stamped ribbon.
TECHNIQUE:  Stamping the Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon with the Poppy Parade and Stazon Black ink creates a fun coordinated patterned ribbon!  Have fun with our ribbons, reinkers, markers, ink pads and more!
~  Adhere it together, tie the ribbon and using Stampin' Dimensionals adhere to the front of this hand stamped card.
~  Add the Wink of Stella to the darker outline and leaves for a jazzy sparkle!

Don't forget the INSIDE!  Stamping the flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Stazon Jet Black then topping with the random Poppy Parade sprinkled stamp allows for a fun cohesive inside.  Framing the Whisper White with Black card stock inside of the Poppy Parade handcrafted card allows for an elegant looking card.  I like, too, when it takes up some of the space so I do not have to write as much!

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
