Pastels Dipped into a Fall Feel





This Technique is NEW to me... the LNS challenge of Pastels I thought "Why Not??" so I tried it out with my Parks and Rec Class ladies and we LOVE it!!
Take a Shallow dish of water - very little water - just enough to coat the bottom. Then I used my Snips end (our snips/scissors and so amazing!) and scraped chalks (Bravo Burgundy, Mustard, Really Rust) into the water. I then Dipped this vanilla paper into it and let it dry. (Accelerate the process with a heat gun.)
The more chalks you used - the darker it'll come out (see the three different ones I did with varying chalks and quantities). Use it ONCE. You'll need new chalk every dip...
I then placed it on Really Rust paper after stamping with Really Rust the new Autumn Days Stamp set. I then used our coordinating Rub-On's with the Fall Sentiment. I layered the bird after flicking it in the stamp pad to get a vintage look.
I hope you can create something new and fun for this Fall Season. Toodles ~ J

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
