Colorful Butterfly For an Amazing Friend!

When a dear friend and fellow stamper celebrated her birthday, I couldn't resist whipping out some rich colors and a few twists... just like Donna and I... lol.
World Spectacular is a stunning Designer Series Paper (Idea Book & Catalog).  Loaded with rich colors (sooo Donna's style) like Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight and more...  Covering the stamped paper with our Vellum card stock is a fun twist!
Stamping the Swallowtail background stamp (Spring Mini) in Early Espresso over the pretty Designer Series Paper is a fun look.  Different and unique...
My baby girl loooooved the card - literally took it and ran!
She loves Mrs. Donna and this card... I guess I got it right, lol.
Embossing in Gold with our Heat Gun this Amazing Family stamp set (Spring Mini).. I love that friends are the family that we pick (or God brings to us in different seasons).  This beautiful stamp set covers family and friends (isn't that Amazing?!?!!)

The floating embossed vellum card stock over the lovely butterfly stamped patterned paper is like looking at a beautiful butterfly through a window.  Framing the vellum also hides the mini glue dot adhesive while tying it up!
 
Do YOU stamp the patterned Designer Series Papers?!?!  It's different and fun while making a big impression!  The elegance of these stamps, the gold and rich colors.... what a fun card! (Pssst, she loved it, the card, the floating embossed vellum, the paper and stamped butterfly...
and our fun girls morning out!!)
 
What Designer Series Paper is YOUR favorite?

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
