This is the new & cool Ampersand Embossing Folder!  Using a Brayer you load Early Espresso ink and roll it along the Embossing folder (depending on the side you use, you can create the paper to pop thru the now modified background or de-boss a colored image in.  See this older video of mine on this cool technique & let me know what you think!
 
The Pretty Soho Subway has these Ampersand (& sign) images on the vintage newsprint pages.  Centering the Ampersand Embossing Folder over the Island Indigo image then embossing the Brayered side through the Big Shot.  This raised & vintage Ampersand has a cool Ampersand in the middle.
This is a cool technique takes the Tea Lace Paper Doily from lacy & pretty to cool & metallic & Rock n Roll!
Place the Cut (or whole) doily, here it's quartered, over the Gold Encore Metallic pad.  Using the Grid Paper or a spare scrap lay it over the doily on the pad.  Rub with your Bone Folder.  Your Bone Folder will stay clean.  Carefully remove and lay to the side.

Adhesive the embossed double Ampersand vintage page to the Island Indigo folded and boned card with SNAIL adhesive.  Adhesive the corner where you want the gold doily.  Carefully lay the gilded doily over the corner. 

Turn the card over on the Grid paper (I always stamp on my Grid paper!!) and rub from behind with the Bone Folder. This will help both sheets to stick better to the card and allow the for the gilded doily to dry.
Apply Sticky Strip across the bottom the the card.  Remove the protective covering.  Add the Gold Sequin Trim to the top.  Push the trim into the Sticky Strip as you go.  Cut off at the end.  I had one spare sequin fall off the end and applied it to the Sticky Strip under the last.

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
