Sparkling Birthday Wishes

My almost 7 year old wanted to create a Sparkling Birthday Wishes card for her friend Sage... we created this fun card.  Our Shimmer Paper makes adding Sparkle and Shine Easy and FUN!!  Adding Color to the Shimmer Paper is as simple as coloring it in.  I like to Brayer when I'm using a ton of color... otherwise I use markers for little dashes of color.
 
Here our Cupcake Punch punches out all the pieces of a cupcake worthy of a celebration.  We used our Stampin' Write Markers to color a Pink cherry and green stem.
 
 Using our new Delicate Doilies Sizzlits L and Big Shot with this Designer Series Paper Twitterpated we created these fun doilies to alternate.  The Double Sided nature of our DSP allows for easy coordination and mixing of patterns - that's just sooo popular right now! 
 
 
It's easy to add dimension with our Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive.  I used the SNAIL adhesive to adhere the doilies on the bottom layer.  Then the floral Doily with three Dimensionals lifts that next layer up... then again with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch in Whisper White.
 
Having punched the cupcake out of the Twitterpated DSP and then the Shimmer Paper... I alternated the pieces.  The whole package of DSP is coordianted in colors and makes it easy to look amazing!
 
 
Our Genevieve wanted to 'color in' the Bring on the Cake sentiment (from the Bring on the Cake stamp set from the Idea Book)... she used the Stampin' Write Markers Pen side and had fun coodinating the sentiment to the papers and cupcake/cherry.
 
 

 This card shines in any light... it's fun and perfect for a 7 year old's birthday party!  Myyyy almost 7 year old had a blast making it... and doesn't she just look so cute??
(I'm biased, I guess.. lol)
 
 
What can YOU do with the Shimmer Paper??  Have fun with our Big Shot and Punches and there is NO Going Wrong!
 
Thanks for looking!  Feel free to share this with others and comments are always appreciated!  I hope YOUR day Sparkles and Shines!!

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
