Wishing you JOY!

When you create such a lovely card like our card kit English Ivy Simple Sentiments its challenging to decorate it and not take away from its loveliness. The stunning lightweight sheets in Very Vanilla with this stunning Crumb Cake Lacy detail on the bottom and envelope, I couldn't resist taking it on as a challenge.

Nabbing an oldie but goodie stamp set, Perfect Punches, the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle punch, Red Riding hood ink, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, and Crumb Cake (that's such a yummy sounding mix, lol) and the new Delicate Doilies Sizzlits L die with my Big Shot.

Running the doilies thru both Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip papers and then laying them out to alternate colors and create contrast and definition. Layering them and adhering with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive. The lace on the card peaks through and looks soooo lovely!

Center the Red Riding Hood stamped Joy at Christmas sentiment that you punched out. I love that it centers perfectly over the larger of the three doilies.

This is really a four step, easy card that packs a lacy and lovely JOY!

Christmas is 9 weeks away, I'm getting ready and this sweet card will be in my repertoire! Wishing you JOY today!

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
