World Treasures

I mentioned, back when on vacation, how much I love the peacock and our new stamp set World Treasures! This card was inspired by an antique peacock from the 1800s at the Big Bear museum.

With a fun technique, Rock N Roll, I stamped this peacock in Pool Party ink and then rolled the edges in Pacific Point blue. Alllllways stamp in a lighter color then roll into a darker... This will prevent the colors from changing as the dark will absorb the light but would alter the stamp pad if I did it the other way. (I have a video tutorial that I did and I did a card upload with a flower stamp, earlier in June, that did this technique with Pretty In Pink and Razzelberry inks.)

The colors from this card was pulled from the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper (pgs 162+ in our Idea Book). I then used the Razzelberry ink to stamp the sentiment on the Pool Party paper. With our amazing Apothecary Accents Framelits and Big Shot I the punched it out with ease! Using my Stampin Dimensionals I adhered the ruffled Pool Part ribbon down then used more to adhere the sentiment. I used our Scallop Edge Border punch I edged the International Bazaar paper. I'm not sure but the paper seems to have leaves where I used it like they were feathers... I'm just cool like that (lol).

A lil dash of glitter with our glitter glue and it is a fun, bright and sassy Peacock card that will brighten anyone's day! I hope you enjoy!

Stamp the Solid Image in lighter color - here I used Pool Party ink
Stamping an image that can be cut out with punches or our Big Shot is a great way to look sharp!
Rock the Edges in a darker color to get a verigated look... I love doing this Rock n Roll technique!
Roll the edges of a lighter inked image into a darker ink... it self verigates and looks gteat!  Make a BIG Impression with this simple technique!

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
