International, Lacy & Lovely

Are you ever wondering how to make a Simple but Stunning card?? This is a quickie but was a favorite in my last Parks & Rec class. (www.CRPD.org Borchard Center, there are a few coming up and soon!!)

Ok so, again, I'm soooo not a Pink girl but I love that this is Pink, Girlie and yet Clean and Fun! One of my BFFs issss a Pink girl, guess who is getting this card?? Lol. (Yesterday was National Girlfriends Day after all...).

This amazing, new stamp set Lacy & Lovely is perfectly set to pair up with various punches. I love how they list the coordinating punches at the same place!! (pg 99 in the Idea Book & Catalog) The sentiments and the images are so lovely (& lacy!!). The 2 1/2" Punch is awesome in making this pretty image easily used for the card. (see the IBC pg 164 for our stunning 12x12" DSP!). I used our Stampin' Dimensional to add a lil dimension (lol).

Here I used Rich Razzelberry ink on Whisper White paper. The International Bazzaar is an amazing Designer Series Paper and fits this image so well!! Lil 1/2" strips add a great lil dash of flair. By adding the splash of bling with our Adhesive Backed Rhinestones to the "o" of a word, a perfect lil treat! I added another to the Center of the stamped image, too.

I hope this card brightens your day and for a non-pink girl, this Pretty in Pink paper really made me feel great!!

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
