Ribbon Fairytale

This lovely creation was today's play time while I considered the LNS Ribbon Challenge.
I punched wholes every 1/2 inch along the edges - 1/2 inch in... so it was even to the eye.

I tied off the ribbon across the top in a 'fancy' bow to 'wrap' up the present, of sorts.
I also embossed with white powder this sentiment and rounded the corners... it really pops but is pretty classy, I think.

I embossed with white powder this Manhattan Rose on Shimmer paper and sprayed water across the rose... I then took our In Color Crushed Curry re inker drops and flowed the color to really stand out. Cutting it out I adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I rounded the corners, with our punch, the corners of the Bridal Paper... I thought it flowed and mimicked the rounded saying.
The Result:
This Bridal Paper shimmers against this Basic Grey card stock.. the woven organza and satin white ribbon and this sparkling flower... I think this says LOVE and captures a 'Fairytale'.
I pulled the ribbon in and out and pulled it up so that it puckered as this did... I thought that the Bridal Specialty Paper's line of contrasting satin and mat white had a similar feel.
I hope you enjoy... I did.. ta taaa

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
