Chalkboard Peacock Feathers

Our little daughter is in the final half of her PreKindergarten year with the same teacher that taught my son... almost 5 years ago!  Dropping her off at school, I walk her in... and starting a conversation with one of the moms, I admire her shirt!  You may know that I love fashion and often my crafts are inspired by clothes, shoes, accessories and more!
 
Here is a card inspired by the lovely shirt this mom had on - she laughed when I told her I liked her shirt and that it'd inspire a card... now, to give this to her... lol.

Utilizing the new Fine Feathers stamp set (Idea book), Vintage Verses stamp set (Sale~A~Bration mini) and the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack (Spring mini), Whisper White card stock, White embossing powder and Midnight Muse ink, the Curly Label punch and our Chalks to add the texture and color of actual chalk and a dash of color!

You can easily see how lovely this shirt is and
how the stunning paper from the
Prints Poetry DSP is perfect for this card!
The stunning In Color Dahlia's (Idea Book, Embellishments) is color coordinated so it creates ease when making a color palate for a card!
Subtle coloring from the chalks, the raised punched sentiment in the matching ink and the Pop of a matching flower.... I really love the look of this card - the subtle text on the paper is just such a fun surprise!
 Don't you just Fall for feathers??  I Love them, I've even made a wreath from Peacock Feathers!  Here is a cool, easy and fun way to celebrate the natural feather with the trendy look of a Chalk Board!
 
Do you hoard papers and embellishments??
Pull them out and USE them - order more!  Our papers and accessories are low cost but have a Big Bang for the Buck!  Pick up YOUR Prints Poetry Designer Series Paper, coordinating embellishments (those Dahlias are great for the pack as the In Colors are used and easily coordinated)!
 
Join in on the FUN, it's Endless!
Free Stamps, Accessories, Tools ++ in the
Sale~A~Bration mini are available for a limited time!

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
