Forever Young, Word Play

Spring has SPRUNG!
Today I purchased a beautiful Spring/Summer Taupe long maxi dress... then my mind went to Accessorizing it... What color did I decided to pair with Taupe?!?!  Crisp, dark, gloss black!!!!
 
This new Spring/Summer (I will be thinner and healthier) dress inspired this card... what do YOU think?!?!
'Don't Play With Your Food' is a
common comment at my kitchen table...  
So, Don't Play With Your Food... how about Play with your WORDS!  Well, our FUN Greeting Stamp set, 'Word Play' fits most of our needs and especially fits this Forever Young stamp set!

With a Sahara Sand card stock base I stamped with the Sahara Sand ink for a subtle and elegant look the frames, silhouettes and the clock...
 (All from the Idea Book & Catalog)
Using our Embossing Buddy, a powder pack, I dusted the card.  This is a great way to 'dry' up any moisture or oils on the card (like from the Sahara Sand ink) and preps the card for the Versa Mark ink.  Heat Embossing with our Black embossing powder this greeting, the girl on the swing... such a sweet Spring Memory... I look forward to a fun filled Summer!  (Am I rushing things - lol?!?!)
Capturing this sweet swinging girl, the vintage sentiment that lays over the clock - a subtle reminder of the time that has past... I know many childhood friends I want to send this too.. maybe my Aunt D who had me many a summer!
Taupe is a soft, warm neutral and our Sahara Sand really embraces this feeling.  Adding the Patent Leather look (wait, am I thinking accessories, again?!?!!) of our Heat Embossed images is a fun way to mix up a trendy look!
What memories make YOU Smile?!?!
Some of my sweetest were when I stayed with my Aunt D and  cousin Jeanell... we swam daily, sun bathed (that doesn't happen these days - lol), rode bikes, played street hockey and had TONS of fun!
When you look back, what memories are YOUR favorite, care-free, memories?

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
