We had so much fun creating together these four magical mermaids.  Perfect for Summer, don't you think?  See how we took one general design, one stamp set and took it up a notch, or four to be exact.

Watercoloring.. I love the ease of this medium of art.  ~  Starting off with Whisper White card stock, stamp your mermaid in Black Archival ink.  Set aside to dry.
~  On a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock stamp your seaweed and shells.  
~  Color in the seaweed with our Watercolor Pencils in Daffodil Delight and Old Olive.  Blend with our Aqua Painter.
~  Color in the mermaid with the Watercolor Pencils and blend with our Aqua Painters.
~  Assemble with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive for a flowing depth to your project.
Take her up a notch.  I fell in-love with our background stamp sets - they are amazing, so easy to use and can change the whole look to a handmade project.
~  Stamp this Whisper White card stock with our Marbled Background stamp and Soft Sky ink pad.
~  Add sparkle to the mermaid with our Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.
(It is just amazing what a simple addition like this can do to the look of a hand-stamped card.)

 A gilded mermaid.  Edged in gold, this heat embossed accent will elevate the elegance.
~  After stamping the card use the Embossing Buddy to prepare the surface.  
~  Stamp the sand image with Versamark ink on the top.  
~  Cover with Gold Embossing Powder.  Heat set with our Heat Tool for a raised gold image.
~  Rub the edges of the mermaid in the Versamark ink pad and cover in Gold Embossing powder.  Heat set for a gilded mermaid!
~  Add the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush for an extra special glittering gold.
I can't get over the sheer loveliness of this gilded golden and sparkling mermaid. 
Create an underwater scene with a Shaker Card addition.
~  After the Marbled background, cover the surface of the card with the Embossing Buddy.
~  Stamp the seaweed in the Versamark and heat set the Gold Embossing Powder.
~  Stamp your greeting.
~  Die-Cut with the Stitched Framelits this oval window.
~  Adhere it to the card with SNAIL adhesive.
~  Frame it with the Foam adhesive strips.
~  Add a pinch of Metallic Sequins.  Cover with our Window Sheets.
~  Apply the sea scene and mermaid to the top of the window sheet.  
You have a delightful shaker card!
~  Add a gilded and glittery mermaid, like from the previous 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
