A Cone by another name is still tasty!

August 21st is National Spumoni Day! I'm married to an Italian man and a common ice cream in his home. He and his sisters would split the flavors of Spumoni so there was no arguing.

Iiii grew up with amazing Grandparents who had love, kindness and patience for us kids. They opened their home and hosted a bible study every Tues evening. My Grandfather, Ralph, would serve two scoops of ice cream to all who came. It was a real highlight to all of my visits and when I lived with them.

Here is my "toast" to today's holiday, National Spumoni Day! With punches I created this clean cut, minimalistic card. With our Naturals paper and it's natural flecks dashed in. I thought it resembled sprinkles.

Our friendly Color Coach suggested the Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip with the Wild Wasabi.

I nabbed our 1" punch, our Pennant punch and these cute two stamp sets. Pennant Parade and Got Treats allowed me to stamp Crumb Cake Ink on Crumb Cake Paper. I created this adorable cone for this cute lil ice cream cone!

It was fun and easy to assemble with our Dimensional Adhesive on this Natural Paper. I Stamped the sentiment from Got Treats with the Crumb Cake on the card.

Our coooool Crystal Effects creates this wet look (like melting ice cream) and it dries 3D! I literally drew a wet line and let it dry for 30-60 minutes. It dries one shade darker, glossy, 3D and adds a lil something to this card.

This cool, clean and yummy card is perfect for this warm, sticky and busy summer day! Go, purchase some Spumoni Ice Cream and toast this holiday with me!

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
