Vintage Valentines Love hand-crafted card making tutorial

Valentine's Day started in 496 (WOW) and in the 18th Century the art of sending Valentine's Day cards came to America.  I love how this historic celebration of love is still practiced today!  So in a nod to the days of old, this Vintage Valentine was hand-crafted at our recent Valentine Palooza Card Making Class.  See how fun it is to take a trip to the past and revel in the beauty of old fashioned looking Valentine Day Cards.  I love how these new paper crafting tools, embossing folders, thinlits, stamp sets, embellishments and more can create a lovely vintage hand-stamped card.

*Crazy About You stamp set (wood 138856/clear 138859/photopolymer 137137)

I adore this new Bundle in the Occasions Catalog!!  The Crazy About You stamp set has 33 stamps that perfectly coordinate with the Hello You thinlits.  Here you create a custom saying that fits your exact need.  Stamp your sentiment (here the 'Love') with Stazon Jet Black ink pad.  Emboss the Blushing Bride card stock (4-1/8"x 5-1/4") with the Happy Hearts embossing folder in the Big Shot.  This will give you a clear stamped image (versus stamping after embossing).

Die cut a strip of Very Vanilla card stock using the Hello You thinlits on the Magnetic Platform and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Adhere with the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive as the lines are sooo thin!!

Punch 8 hearts using the Sweetheart punch and vintage Typset Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Fold four together and use the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive down the seam of each to stack these four punched hearts.  Fluff for a cool look and adhere to the embossed card front with Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.

Accent with the Antique Brads, Artisan Rosettes, Venetian Crochet Trim and adhesive backed Pearl Jewels.

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
