Lovely as a Tree in Toille

I LOVE nature and toille... so I decided to combine the two. Using the wonderful Color Wheel I snagged my Bravo Burgundy and went to see what would be a perfect mix. Using the Natural White paper, with the lil flecks of 'nature' in it... sigh....

Simply alternate stamping the leaves in the matching colors of Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron and Garden Green. Stamping on a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" piece of paper. Remember to Stamp Off your leaves so that they look like they are falling off of the paper.

Taking your Cut and Folded Bravo Burgundy paper - Cut off the lower portion of the front of the card. (I left behind a 1 inch border/top). A warm words sentiment would fit perfectly next to the layered Tree.

Set in and adhere behind the Top your stamped Naturals Paper, Layer your Garden Green, Burgundy and Stamped Tree Naturals and... you've created a similar feel to a Toille Back grounded Material.

Recipe:
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree (Warm Words will work w/this card, too...)
Inks: Bravo Burgundy, Garden Green and So Saffron (Stamp Words on Burgundy in Gold ink)
Papers: Bravo Burgundy, Garden Green and Naturals White

In Prep for the upcoming Fall Season ~ What would YOU do?? Can you do Lovely As a Tree differently for the Fall? ~ 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
