Anniversary Card

Our neighbors, Peggy and Mark were heading off to Dinner with their Grandaughter, Sage. They told me it was their Anniversary. I couldn't resist, I popped over to my Stampin' Supplies and made this card!

With Crumb Cake already out, I grabbed my Color Coach and looked to see what Red it recommended. With Real Red and Bashful Blue (I wouldn't have picked this combo but I do love the results!).

This fun and lovely stamp set, Affection Collection from our Holiday Mini. I stamped the pretty scrolled oval with Crumb Cake in, loving the tone on tone effect. I stamped the Love with Real Red over that. I like the addition of the Flag at the top right corner of the card and the winged heart at an angle on the bottom left corner.

After Stamping the card I embossed it with our new Embossing Folder from the Holiday Mini. I then used a dauber to sponge in the Crumb Cake into the books and crannies of the embossing. This lends to the vintage feel and frames the stamps in a subtle manner.

Embossing all three layers separate of one another then assembled the card. The limited views of the other colors allows for their feel but not too much in your face.

I couldn't leave it alone, you'll see the non-shimmered card and the shimmered card. I took our Vanilla Smooch Spritz to the card. I love the subtle warm shimmer! I added one tiny pearl to the center of the Love sentiment.

The results are great! A fun and easy card!! I grabbed the envelope and stamped on it the lil flag in Bashful Blue and the winged heart. I wrote their names with the new Gold pen from our Holiday Mini and embossed it with the same folder. I sponged, with a dauber, Real Red into the envelope. It adds a little anticipation to the card! I made sure I did the lip of the envelope to accentuate the opening.

I hope you feel the love! Wouldn't you just love to receive this card?? I enjoyed making it for such lovely neighbors!

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
