Flowers n Coffee

My hubby knows that for me a hot cup of coffee (especially on a rough day) is almost as amazing as a bouquet of roses.  So giving thissss girl a sweet cup of coffee and flowers... you have to wonder what he wants - lol.
 
So for my recent Breakfast Club class we started off with a piping cup of coffee (some had hot apple cider - lol).  Thissss card is what we created (well, there are two options) and it was such fun!
Perfect Blend (#131392) is the stamp set with this uber cute cup (and two fun sayings).  Here is a BRIGHT Way to Kick Off our weekend.  The Gingham Garden (#129310) Designer Series Paper is very bright and with a vintage flower and gingham look.
Stamping this cup three times with Versa Mark(#102283) on the Whisper White card stock (#100730) and the Island Indigo gingham and Daffodil Delight flower sheet.  Pouring the Black Embossing Powder (#109133) and heat set with the Heat Tool/Gun (#129053) for a sharp look.
Using the amazing Paper Snips (#103579) a MUST HAVE for all crafters, cut out the individual sections.  Adhere, using our SNAIL adhesive (#104332) piece by piece to the white embossed cup image - starting with the Daffodil Delight floral and polka dot paper.  Make the cup cozy in Island Indigo gingham pop when you raise it above the others with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (#104430).

This subtle pop up of the cozy adds dimension and depth - a fun little touch.
 
Layered over our Tea Lace Paper Doily (#129399) that was cut in 1/2 for a frilly neutral that helps to separate this bold cup from the Melon Mambo (#115320) card stock base.
Washi it up.... adding fun coordinated accents to the inside of cards is a great way to continue the love!    Here adding the Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape (#129314) to the inside.  It's a whimsical accent.  Tie in the doily with the Delicate Details Lace Tape (#130966) to coordinate with the front Doily.
So - for those who don't LOVE the Perfect Blend... take the card in a slightly different direction with the Secret Garden stamp set (#129144) and coordinating Secrete Garden Framelits (#129372).  The same layout as the bright coffee card with the change up. 
 
Embossing the flowers in the White Embossing Powder (#109132) for a bright look.  Yippee-Skippee greeting stamp set (#131341) is a fun and funky set of sayings that go right along with this bright card!
Adding our adhesive backed Pearl Basic Jewels to the flower centers... or do as Christine did and snag my permanent markers (I recently purchased a large pkg of Bics and the colors were very close to OUR Colors!  Whoot! Whoot!!).  She had fun coloring the pearls for her card... for a color loving momma... it's a perfect fit!
Again, a Coordinated inside allows for the fun to live on!  Look like you are giving some extra love!

No matter which card you like more... they both are very fun and festive!  Kick starting my weekend with our Breakfast Club Classes... they are quick, fun, and sure to brighten your day!  CLICK HERE to see my fun line-up of upcoming classes!!  Join Me in the FUN (On-Line Classes, too!) of Paper Crafting and Rubber Stamping!

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
