Blooming with Pinks

A favorite stamp set of mine is the lovely Blooming With Kindness. It just has this something to it that speaks to me.

So the StampinUpLNStampers single layer challenge was taken on with this card! I loved how this came out. You may know that I'm not a Pink lover (funny enough that I've used pinks for this stamp set more than once lol).

I used Raspberry Ripple dark pink and it is paired with Pretty In Pink. I stamped the Flower with Raspberry Ripple on the Pretty In Pink, the Old Olive (this combo is the Color Coach suggestion!) for the sentiment.

I then took our Label Framelets and used it to create depth. I took the cut cardstock and Dotto adhesive (a temporary adhesive) to hold the Mask over the stamped flower and sentiment. I then brayered the card with our Brayer that I loaded with Raspberry Ripple ink. Nadine, a student in my Parks b Rec class said it took on a velvety look after brayered.

Well, it's not enough, I just had to add a Wow (or is that more wow?!?). Out came the Dazzling Details glitter adhesive. I took this stunning addition and did it on the flower alone.

Can you see the Paper Piercing?? Our new Piercing mat, piercer, and layered guides makes it easy to add a lil something to a card that is subtle but lovely!!

So, can you see how to take One Layer and add depth, dimension, wow and sparkle?? Go, take on that One Layer Wow challenge, what would you do with it?? Comments are sooo appreciated!

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
