Gilded Sentimental Wishes

I remember that the books in our family collection that were guilders with gold on the edges were the important ones. The Bible, CS Lewis books, Moby Dick, etc. So, when I want to make a statement of importance, I gild a card with Gold!

Kaitlyn, our niece, turned 16! Wow!! She wasn't two when my husband and I became a couple! I wanted to celebrate this monumentous occasion with her. Let her know just how important she is!! The Sale A Bration FREE stamp sets are coming! This Feeling Sentimental stamp set is stunning! My Sister In Law said that Royal Blue is Kait's favorite color.

Using the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack from the Spring Mini and the Midnight Muse DSP inside, then Summer Starfruit card stock I created this card.

Utilizing the Top Note Die and Big Shot to create this DSP accent. The Gold Embossing directly on the DSP seemed to get lost. Wanting to see how the gold embossing powder would do on the Summer Starfruit, I was pleasantly surprised!

Ripping the edges (pulling it towards me to create a large feathered edge) I then used the Illuminate Stamp Pad (introduced in the Holiday Mini but available in the Spring Mini) and Gold Embossing Powder to the feathered edges. This adds to the Gilded edge look. Doing the same with the folded card stock base and the DSP allows for a rich look!

Who wouldn't love to receive this gilded card? This Gilded Sentimental Celebration card is sure to show her how amazing she is!

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
