A Cup filled with a Whole Latte Love

It's a Whole Latte Love to-go! 
With the Sale~A~Bration FREE Stamp Set, Patterned Occasions
(available in English, French and Spanish!) will give you some 'get up and go'!
 
I'm a coffee, cocoa and tea girl - I always have a cup of something warm with me as I head out to start my day... this card is sure to send a 'whole latte love'


Using a Whisper White or Crumb Cake card stock as the base, we embossed it in the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Folder to create the texture of a travel mug. 
 
HOW to create the mug??  It's easy - fold this card that was cut in 1/2 from the top/long ways.  After texturizing/embossing with the Big Shot, I heat embossed this sentiment on a 2" strip of card stock that contrasts the cup, making it resemble the cup cozy. 
 
Cut UP from the Bottom towards one corner at the top - then FLIP this cut corner over to use as a stencil for the other side!  This allows for the corners to match!
 
Apply a 1" strip along the top so that it hangs over where you cut and resembles a lid on a cup!!  Easy Peasy!

The Teenage girls LOVED this card - lol - as they created them for the Soldiers who are serving!  I love the creative license that the girls took with the cups, textures, looks, etc!! 
 
I love taking my cup to-go, so sending some love home while looking so cute, every soldier will enjoy this! 
 
CONTRAST!  Texture can allow for a mat look, in my opinion, but when adding the Heat Embossed greeting and image is shiny - a fun way to add interest to the eye!  How EASY is that?!?!
 
Join IN on the FUN - RSVP to a class and soon!!  Let's find time to create and have fun and see my monthly Soldier Card Events - even create the 'extra' cards I cut for my classes for Soldiers! 
(Bring a friend or two... or book a Private Class!)
 
I hope this warms you with a Whole Latte Love!  What would YOU do with texture - whether from the Big Shot or Heat Embossing!! 
 
Thank you for coming by, taking a look and leaving a comment!  Please feel free to share this with others!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

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
