Don't cry over Cracked Glass!

Don't cry over spilled milk! My Nanna always seemed to take our spills n bumps us Grandchildren did. She always assured us that it was OK. When people hear that this is Cracked Glass, they stop and look nervous... Let me assure you to Not cry over cracked glass, cards that is....

Here with Storytime DSP and Storybook Friends stamp set, Pool Party card and Midnight Muse ribbon and ink... This card is a fun and vintage throw back to my elementary school days!

The Scallop Edge border punch I punched the 1 1/2" strips of DSP. I recommend alternating the strips to they aren't so matchy matchy, this allows the scallops to pop. I then rolled the lil scallops on my finger nail to create the distress and dimension to the card.

With Midnight Muse ink I stamped this lil pup from the Storybook Friends stamp set. I covered the whole image and paper w/Versa Marker ink. I then used Clear embossing powder and heat set it. I repeated it 3-4 times depending on how it looks.

Pop in your Freezer for 5-10 minutes. Remove and start breaking and folding back the embossed and cold image. It will CRACK!! I then took Basic Grey ink and a Sponge and went into each lil crack and rubbed the tip to add to the distressed look and highlight the cracks.

I love how the Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon wraps it all up. I framed the Cracked Glass image on a Midnight Muse paper that I had distressed the edges w/my Paper Snips. It adds to the Vintage-ness of it all.

I hope this Cracked Glass, Vintage Card brings back good childhood memories... I know it makes meeeee 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
