Rich Razzelberry Wishes

My amazing Sister In Law is a hard working mom of two busy boys/men-now. She teaches at a school where she reaches these kids in a special way. My kids just love her, she is quick to play or read to them, gets on their level and connects... We are blessed that she is my husbands older sister!

Lori is celebrating her 50th birthday but looks much younger. We have discussed the enjoyment of wearing colors. I couldn't resist giving her a rich card with yummy color and sparkle. I purchased a purple n white jeweled bracelet as part of her gift and decided to do a similar colored card to bless her.

With Pretty In Pink cardstock for the base I used a Brayer and loaded up Rich Razzelberry ink. I then inked with the Brayer on the Holiday Frame embossing folder the ink. This goes on the smooth side only. I placed and careful not moving it, embossed it through the Big Shot. This causes the ink to go around the pattern/design and the area that isn't inked embosses with the texture and shows in the original color like it does with this Pretty In Pink texture.

The Basic Jewels, adhesive backed rhinestones to a few spots around the pattern of texture. This is similar to the bracelet that was jeweled purple stones and a dash of white jewels of more bling.

I used the Decorative Label Punch to punch out the label punch in the Glimmer Paper. The Tiny Tiny Wishes Happy Birthday Greeting fits perfectly in the Modern Label punch. I added a dash more bling w/the Basic Jewels that frames the Rich Razzelberry stamped sentiment Ob the Pretty In Pink paper.

Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive allowed each to layer and float. This also added dimension too!

How would YOU celebrate that special lady in your life? The one who is full of color and style??

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
