Part Deux... 30 Cards.. ONE day... TONS of FUN!

Our Snowflake Impression plate is already a favorite of mine... I adore our tree stamp set (it can't ever go away - it's an amazing stamp set... in our Idea Book)... Here we stamped the sentiment and the tree on a Whisper White paper in Garden Green... then I ran it thru the Snowflake impression plate.. I moved UP the snowflakes so that it didn't overtake the words... I love the white dry embossed... the green tree (we ARE in California) and the sentiment is so perfect!!
I DO love Texture... OUR Big Shot gives you that and more!! Here w/ the embossing plate I did the dots to match the poka dotted ornaments... and with our White Gel Pen - I created the strings that tied them on!! This was a PUNCH card.... the new punch is perfect for sentiments!

HERE we did the Swirl impression plate to tie into the 'Joy' Swirled ornament... I love that the Stampin' Dimensionals make this card POP and they really hold punched items to the texture on the impression!!
Doesn't One love to get TWO cards in ONE?? With our Tag die... and our Pointsetta impression plate... this stamp set fit perfectly to create this look of two cards in ONE... I do love giving a lil extra to those I love.. and these aren't traditional holiday card colors but I do so love the look!

Bashful Blue card, Real Red and Whisper White paper... I stamped the sentiment in Bashful blue and the pointsettia was colored in w/ our Real Red Markers that Paint like a loaded paint brush... the simple white ribbon.. sigh... I do feel fancy with this card.. it was a favorite of my friend Donna's... The Stampin' Spot made it easy to ink and the Marker made making the pointsettia red.. easy peasy!! Stamp While the Tag is Closed... opening to that lil Tree on the inside... a FUN card to MAKE!!

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
