Full Of Blessings

This Holiday Season is one to pause and count my blessings. I do what I love and am rewarded for it. I have wonderful children, a supportive hubby. We live in a great community, have wonderful schools and activities...

Here is my heart's dance of joy as I prepare for Thanksgiving! With Soft Suede cardstock as the base to this card. With the Holiday Mini Core'dinations cardstock in Early Espresso run through the Woodgrain embossing folder and my Big Shot. Sanding the top of this embossed cardstock, the lighter color pops thru!

Stamping this pumpkin scene from the Full of Blessings stamp set from the Holiday mini on Very Vanilla with Early Espresso ink.

With my Watercolor pen I water colored in the scene with Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede and Pumpkin Pie inks.

NOW... I did the pumpkins TWO way!! The darker and more glittery pumpkins is using our Dazzling Details glittery glue and one drop of the Pumpkin Pue re-inkers. I then painted in the pumpkins for the darker, glittery pumpkins. I really LOVE this contrast to the neutrals to this glittery look.

With our Big Shot and the Apothecary Accents Framelits I punched out this retro accent. It frames the scene sooo well! The Antique Brads tie it all up!! I did the glittery one w/the edges daubed with a Dauber and Soft Suede ink!

This scene screams Harvest, Fall and Thanksgiving. The LNS challenge of Thanksgiving cards is given a nod with this card!!

I hope you enjoy this Fall card and take a moment to count YOUR blessings!!

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
