Being Blue is a Happy Thing!

I sooo love mixing our amazing Material with our Cardstock and Stamps! Here with our Beau Chateau Material, Apothecary Art stamp set, Labels Framelits Die its a lovely card that is so feminine (our Niece, Kaitlyn's 15 yr bday). The Elements of Style is a great coordinating stamp set and our Shimmer paper makes the card sparkle just like Kait does!!

I took a 1" strip of our material and the adhered Sticky Strip adhesive to the back and then folded this ruffle on the edge of a 5x5" card. The Marina Mist is a lovely color.

I stamped with Early Espresso the Apothecary Stamp and then the Happy Birthday in Marina Mist. I used Bashful Blue on the roses and then darkened where the lines on the roses were with the Marina Mist. (The Color Coach #120148 or in Spanish, French and German #121046 makes it so easy to pair colors up and make a big impact!). The Large Pearl adhesive-backed jewels add a class to it and help wrap it up, I think.

We have tried to find a Blue Rose plant, blue being one of my favorite colors. My hubby even had white roses died blue by a florist! Our niece is pretty special as is this card. now, she prepares to start driving and I can say that I'm glad to be living 75+ miles away. Lol.

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
