International Bazaar Christmas

I adore our International Bazaar Designer Series Paper. When the LNS challenge to copy a card we saw on Pinterest I couldn't resist changing it up. Here with the yummy Pacific Point cardstock as the base and matches the DSP I created a card w/a similar vibe to this moxiefabworld.com pinned card!

A simple white Heat Embossed tree, from the Christmas Lodge stamp set on the flowered DSP from the International Bazaar pack. I love that Versa Mark and White embossing powder create this sharp and glossy "iced" tree. Layered with a Whisper White paper in between the flowers now look glacial and like snowflakes!

Coloring in the Adhesive backed Jewels and Rhinestones. I adore the shimmer and shine of the now colored in pearls and jewels. Layered on the tree with un-colored in jewels the card sparkles and shines!

On Vellum the Merry Christmas is elegant and subtle. Snail adhesive holds it down but the Pearls cover that.

I don't care to copy someone else. I do like this result and the change-ups too! What do YOU think?? Thanks for looking, sharing and leaving a comment!

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
