Forever Young, Soooo Shake It!!

I took on the StampinUpLNStampers Dots n Stripes challenge for this Adventurous Borchard Parks and Rec class card!

I also wanted a fun but funky color
Mix. I looked in my Color Coach and liked this Black, Baja Breeze and Cherry Cobbler pick. The secret is to use the colors in diminished percentage. So use one as the bulk of the color and each of the next two in lesser amounts. This prevents the colors from overwhelming the card.

With this Striped Folder and my Big Shot I created the lines and texture. I then used the Brayer that I'd rolled in Cherry Cobbler ink and rolled across the raised lines. I like the funky strip look, don't you?!?!!

Taking this Forever Young stamp set I used Basic Black ink and stamped it on Very Vanilla paper. I then punched out this 1 3/8" circle. I used our Shaker frame to surround the circle that I adhered and boned down with Snail adhesive. I added a dash of Dazzling Diamonds and then used a window sheet to seal in the sparkle but be see through.

I surrounded the remaining tree 3 1/2"x3 1/2" paper with a sponge dipped in Cherry Cobbler ink. I used Stampin' Dimensional adhesive to raise the tree and float above the shaker.

With this fun sentiment "Imagine the Possibilities" I stamped it in Black on Cherry Cobbler paper. I added the Rhinestones to mimic the bling. This Decorative Label punch is a Must Have for every stamper.

I hope you feel the sheer wonder of swinging in a tree, not a care in the world, with this card. I know it makes me smile!

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
