Marriage is a Journey hand made card

I have many adopted family members, those that are friends who are like family.  Recently a dear "adopted" niece Nicole became engaged to the man she has loved for the past three + years.  I was honored to attend her Bridal Shower and celebrate the next step in her life.

My girl, she's a beach loving, surfing, strong yet gentle, photographer and so so so much more.  So for my angel girl (who's taken our family photos for the past 8 years) I wanted a clean, elegant, sparkling, warm but beachy cool hand made wedding card.
~  Starting with the Pool Party card stock base and a piece at 4" x 5-1/4".  
~  Die cut the smaller piece with the Flourishing Thinlit flowered vine.  
~  Adhere the Copper Foil sheet to the card base.
~  Prep the die-cut piece with the Embossing Buddy across the top of the die-cut piece. 
~  Stamp the Marriage is a Journey greeting from the Flourishing Phrases coordinating stamp set in Versa Mark ink pad.
~  Cover with Copper Embossing Powder and heat set with our Heat Tool.
~ Adhere the stamped and heat embossed top die-cut piece to the copper foil with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive.
~  With rolled glue dots adhere the inside die-cut flowering vine (after you removed the bits and pieces).  
~  This creates a lower intricate vine over the Copper Foil with the raised top piece and the texture of the raised words in Copper.
~  Apply our adhesive backed Gold Faceted Gems to the card for a dash of sparkle.  
This girl.  She's a rock to all around her, sees the world in a beautiful way and loves on my children and us.  I'm calling her my niece.  I love her family but this girl... she's a genuine jewel in a dark world.  Her fiance is a wise man, he loves on her, adores her, honors her and works by her side to make the world more beautiful.

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
