Vintage is so lovely...

This card is from my recent 30 Card Stack... We started off with This card:

But after the class I started to play.. and came up with THIS card: I adore the Tulip embossing folder and then taking a dauber in Chocolate Chip ink on the Crumb Cake paper and the stamped scroll area is in Crumb Cake.. the bird and sentiment is in Chocolate Chip... the Antique Brad and the amazing Crochet Ribbon is simply stunning...
Here I used our SNAIL adhesive to create the raise in the ribbon... I started with the Brad - then using a small hole punch I threaded the Ribbon thru and under....


Taking the Snail I created the Raised ribbon and adhered the ribbon to keep that flow-y look..

The dash of Snail is hard to see here but it makes the card look extra fancy and feminine..

After starting with the brad I trimmed it and 'hid' it under by threading the ribbon over the brad - this way, too, it won't snag the recipient of the card..
I didn't photo it here but I stamped the inside w/ the bird and stamped it off across the inside..
The Flow-y, Feminine ribbon and brad look is lovely, isn't it?

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
