Fall like a Tree












The last of my LNS Pastel challenge I did this card with my club girls... We used the Woodgrain background stamp with Chocolate Chip Ink. I did it on Natural White Paper so the wood grain has a real natural feel to it. I wanted this too look like a Birch Tree and couldn't find my grey stamp pad. I then ran it thru the Stampin' Up! Distressed Textured plate (I tried to picture the texture... not sure it shows...) but it's so cool - looking and feeling like real wood.
Next I, on The Naturals paper, stamped w/ Versa Mark the Oval ' Just for You' and then popped on Mustard and Old Olive. I then (after the image had the colors I wanted) I rubbed the background with Mustard shading it as such. Adding the Vintage Brads as an accent after punching out with our scalloped oval punch. I then stamped the various images from Lovely as a Tree and then popped on Chocolate Chip onto the stems and acorns. Garden Green and More Mustard. I then tied the Mustard Ribbon around and fixed the images on with Dimensional. I like the layered and aged look of this... the texture of the paper after running it thru the textured plate is very cool.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

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
