Falling for Fall!

I loooove our Shaker Frames and it really allows to embrace the falling leaves of Fall!

Here with the Wood background stamp set I stamped Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake paper. It's subtle and yet still clearly a wood background. The StampinUpLNStampers challenge of wood cards gets this nod! Whoot! Whoot! Ladies! Lol

I then used Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard and Crumb Cake markers to color in this lovely Fall Bird stamp from the Four Seasons Hostess Stamp. I then used the 2 3/8" scallop punch to punch it out. The 1" circle punch to punch out the bird center.

SNAIL adhesive holds the lil bird down on this strip of Bravo Burgundy paper. I then used the lil Shaker Frame to hold frame lil punched Bravo Burgundy and More Mustard paper lil circles. I love how they will float!

Remove the cover of the frame and adhere a window sheet. This seals in the floating leaves and allows them to move about. I then used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the top/scallop punched fall leaves.

The lil burgundy stamped "falling leaves" on the side is just lovely. Here Fall Leaves float about. How cool is that?!?!!

The Curly Cute "Season's Greetings" is stamped w/Bravo Burgundy ink on More Mustard paper. Using the Paper Snips to rough the edges, then using my fingernail to break down the fibers it adds a maturity and elegance to the card. I used the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive to create the movement to the paper.

Ok go nature, Fall and create a cool element to your card. I love that the Color Coach combined these colors and gave a great seasonal feel! Happy Fall Y'All, it's here and I'm sooo glad!

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
