Chilly Willy Frosty Love

One of my favorite cartoons as a child was Chilly Willy... lol..
Too, I love FROSTY the Snow Man... these are great retro cartoons!
 
These cards embrace my two favorite Cartoons in a fun way.  These were similar to the design in our Idea Book.  One of my Stampers, Ashley, purchased this stamp set, doily die and then felt stumped.  I like to remind people that the Idea Book and Catalog is just that.. an Idea Book!  Take these ideas and RUNnnnn...
(See this idea as it was copied and changed from the Idea Book, Pg 23).
 
Here is a Nod to Frosty... lol...
 
Both Cards are Bashful Blue.  The Designer Series Paper is from our Holiday Mini... the Fun Collection of Papers in the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. 
(This Catalog/Idea Mini goes until January 2nd... get your favorites ASAP!)
 
Whisper White Card Stock is ideal for the New Delicate Doilies Sizzlits L and Big Shot.  It creates the Doily that looks like a Snowflake in this format!  Stampin' Dimensionals add depth between each layer, too.
 
The 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch punches out the stamped with Stazon Black Ink Snowman and Penguin.  To create a subtle layer - Taking the Sponge Dauber in the Darker 'Sibling'/Monochromatic suggested color is Baja Breeze and Daub the edges of the Scallop Circled image so that the two layers of White are seperate.  Too, the Edge of the DSP (Designer Series Paper). 
 
Add a 'Carrot' Nose with our Basic Jewels Rhinestones and an Orange Sharpie!  Color it in and the adhesive back allows for it to stick and stay!
 
The Snow Ball in his hands is fun and in the center of the Baja Breeze 'Jolly Christmas' greeting stamp from this new No Peeking stamp set.
 
 
 
Here this Chilly Willy Rocks the Googlies from our Holiday Mini and taking the Black Sharpie to our Rhinestone Jewels.  It's a fun spin on the season and a great nod to a retro cartoon. 
 
I'm in California and rarely snowy... but this brings a fun chill to my holiday season!  Have a Jolly Christmas!!
 
Here is Chilly's Theme Song - about 30 seconds long... it takes me back.. lol..
 
I hope you enjoyed these chilly wishes! 
What can YOU do with an Idea from the Idea Book and Catalog??  Comments are appreciated.. thanks for coming by and looking! 
Feel free to share with your friends and family!

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
