Butterflies Twitterpated In the Sky

I LOVE our garden and the large window that is near the kids' play area in our Family Room - with my hummingbird feeders and butterfly flowers (yes, they have plants that draw butterflies and are pretty!!) we are blessed to see the most lovely scenes!
 
With the amazing girls from Trinity homeschool, we careated these cards for the Soldiers Serving Abroad!  Here with Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, the amazing Big Shot, Cloudy Day Textured Impressions embossing Folder (from the Spring Mini), Baja Breeze and Pretty In Pink card stock, Decorative Lable Punch, and Blessings from Heaven greetings/sentiment stamp set these sweet cards are a great gift for any soldier to use to send home for their loved ones!
 



Stampin' Dimensional adhesive raises the butterflies and sentiment but also serve to hold onto the textured background - where other adhesives may struggle. 


Layering the Designer Series Paper is great - with the two different patterns, yet the color coordination, it's a great way to be trendy (mixing patterns), but look stylish and not garrish!  The Grey Ink stands up well on the Pretty In Pink paper!

DeBossing is a fun trend, it's where the texture is pushed into the card like the one here.. it's a sweet and cool way to change up a card! 
 
These clouds are a sweet texture to add to this fun card!

 
How can YOU Support our Soldiers who are serving abroad? 
 
Play with the Big Shot, you can not go wrong with this tool!  I love that it's for sale, 24/7/365 on my website but, too, that it's 1/2 off with a qualifying Workshop/Private Class! 
 
Let's talk MORE and make sure YOU get a Big Shot of your own
(I have two - lol - even considering a third - lol).

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
