Did you know that we have a little farm?  I'm a 'Goat Mom' lol to two sweet Nigerian Dwarf Goats (whom we will breed soon to have have babies and milk our goats).  I've debated chickens... until I figure out if I have the time I can create with this *FREE (squeee!!) Hey, Chick stamp set!!
This is one of my favorite 'tricks' in crafting a WOW hand made card.  A 'fancy fold' is easy to do and delivers a hand crafted card that is above the rest.  

Created to sparkle - these chicks and succulents are sure to brighten your day!
~  Score a 12x12" Whisper White card stock at 4" and 8".
~  Turn and cut the card stock the opposite of the score lines at 4" and 8".
~  Using the Stampin' Trimmer, score the two end pieces at a matching diagonal (see the video tutorial below).
~  Crease the edges with a Bone Folder.
~  Apply a 3-3/4" square piece of the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper with Fast Fuse adhesive.
~  Apply a 3"x3" piece of the in-color Mint Macaron FREE Glimmer Paper to the front of the card.
~  From the FREE Hey, Chick stamp set, Stamp the 'Hey Chick' staying to a 1" strip of in-color Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Adhere to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive.
~  Punch the edges with the Banner Triple punch.
TOOL TIP:  Punch one side, stamp the saying, using the punched - off piece as a guide on the opposite side to know where to trim and punch the banner.  (see the video below to see this simple trick).
~ Adhere to the top half of the triangle on the card.
~  Adhere a piece of 3-1/2" square piece of Sweet Sugarplum card stock to the other half and lower triangle with Fast Fuse adhesive.
~  Stamp with Black Archival ink pad these cute chickens on a 3" square piece of Whisper White card stock.
~  Water color with the Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Sweet Sugarplum ink pads.
~  Add sparkle with the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.

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
