Celebrate Friends!!

My sweet little girl was invited to a softball-teammate's birthday party.  The two girls even live near each other in our Equestrian estates... so this is the card we created for the horse riding birthday party!  (I love creating cards with my daughters.... my friends, too - lol.)
I adore our Tea for Two Designer Series Paper (Spring Mini) and these adorable paper doilies (Spring Mini).  These Tea Lace Doilies come in White ($2.95 for 24! WOW!!)... but I wanted more than white... I wanted a warm color.... so join me - let's change this doily into a So Saffron one!!
Start off by stamping the items you want on the doily... here I stamped in Early Espresso Ink this sweet Little Friends stamp set (Idea Book & Catalog).
 
Stamp the images/girls on a sticky note and cut out.
Cover the images with the stamped sticky notes that you cut out.... then Brayer the doily with So Saffron ink... the Doily absorbs the color and when you remove the covered/masked girls they are white!
This sweet quilted Tea for Two paper is a perfect frame for this transformed Doily!!
Though the paper looks stitched and quilted, I couldn't resist adding this textured Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and Big Shot to the end... the sweet texture is a fun way to add an embellishment.
Coloring in the girls with our Stampin' Write Markers is a fun way to add character - too, it ties into the color of the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper.  Using the Stampin' Write Marker makes it easy to accent the embossed 'stitches' with a Crumb Cake accent.

The sweetness of this image, papers, doily... the luminescent pearls button it up.  These Pearls from the Basic Jewels adhesive backed sheet are ideal!  Perfect accents on the Doily and card.
I love that my baby girl has such a sweet friend.
This card captures that sweetness, doesn't it?!?!
Here is my little princess...
her new obsession is taking riding lessons - lol.
 
As I work on that for her and her siblings...
I'm glad to have captured these memories!!
 
What party memories do YOU have...

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
