Comfort Cafe Woodland card

I'm really NOT a flowery or Soft Suede kind of girl. Buttttt I pulled out my color wheel, this Woodgrain background stamp and my Designer Series Paper chart.

It alllll pulled together with our new Summer Starfruit paper and Stitched ribbon. The Comfort Cafe DSP is really lovely (in small doses, lol) with its vintage color palate and theme.

Here is Chocolate Chip ink stamped Woodgrain backdrop stamp. (pg 127 of the 2012 Idea Book). I then punched out these butterflies from the Comfort Cafe DSP and adhered them with Stampin' Dimensional. I used Snail adhesive to hold the ribbon then the Dimensional to make the Petite Pairs sentiment Pop up. The Postage punch really fits its size to a T.

A fun and easy card! I was happily surprised at the results and how much I liked it! Want to snag your own vintage/retro natural card?? Let's set up a Private Class or join in one of my classes in the Conejo Valley!

If you find larger/background stamps a challenge?? Use the side stamped that you don't like on the back! Cute! Popping the sentiment and an extra butterfly on the inside really allows for you to tie the theme in. Placing a Summer Starfruit punched butterfly on the envelope sneaks a bit of fun in too!

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
