St. Patricks Day Card

I was challenged on the LNS Stampers to 'Go Green' with our cards... I had such fun with this St. Patty's card...
With our Standard Wheel I used our Baroque Border and ran it across the page... With a Score Board (I picked up a Martha Steward one at Michaels when on sale).. I used our First Edition Desiner Series Paper that is in our Occasions Mini and scored a page at 1/4" increments... I then cut the strips to 1 1/2" and folded them to create this 'flower'..
NOW... my hubby wanted me to leave the card this way... but I assured him I'd add just a lil more... he still preferred it this way... reminded him of an Umbrella...
With Garden Green I stamped our 'Lucky Shamrock' stamp on Shimmer paper and punched it out with our 1 3/4" punch... I adhered it w/ Stampin' Dimensionals....
I'd run the Garden Green paper thru our 'Elegant Bouquet' Embossing Folder... the crimped paper/shamrock looked like a flower sprouting out the end of a stem... I just LOVE this card!
Not too wide.... it fit perfectly in our envelopes and is a fun card to send and receive!!

I'd sold out of these at the Craft Fare and made these w/out the Wheel... still lovely... and a hit... again - it looks like the shamrock is the flower... doesn't it??

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
