Woven with love hand-stamped card

I grew up in the day where I wore plaid flannel and jeans to school nearly every day!  I have a love of all things woven, probably from this stage in my life.  So this woven, hand-stamped card came to life when I was chatting up an High School girlfriend who was reminding me that she 'knew from where I came from' and that I didn't have to dress up to see her (aww).  So I hope you'll join me with this fun woven ribbon card.
Create this card with:
Crazy, Mixed-Up Love stamp set (#131068w/131071c)
Whisper White card stock (#100730)
Bermuda Bay card stock (#131197)
Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker (#100082)
Brights Collection Stampin' Write Maker (#131259)
Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon (#119261)
Bermuda Bay 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon (131206)
Glue Dots (#103683)
Grid paper (#130148)

Create this woven ribbon (in nod to my youth and friend Brandi and my friend Carol who sells Longaberger - you just have to love the woven look!).  Here I cut several strips of Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon to fit the 4-1/4" side.  Using the Grid Paper as a guide for spacing.
I roll the Glue Dots off of the roll for these narrow strong adhesive roll.  Use this to hold one side of the ribbon down so it makes for easy weaving!

Weave the Bermuda Bay 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon using the Grid Paper from the other side of the card stock.  This creates a fun and funky look.  I did these rolled Glue Dots at the end after it was all woven for a strong adhesive that is easy to use with this thin ribbon.
Color this 'I Lava You' stamp from the Crazy, Mixed-Up Love stamp set (this is such a fun set!!) with the Black Stampin' Write Marker and the Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Marker from the Brights Collection.  Huff and apply to a strip of Whisper White card stock.  Layer over a strip of Bermuda Bay card stock for a balanced looking card.

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
