York Birthday Wishes

Want to wish someone a rich, cool birthday?!?!
Show some love and get inspired by your favorite candy!!
(Can you guess which candy bar inspired
this sweet card?!?!)
OK so if you haven't figured it out, it's my favorite candy bar - the York Peppermint Patty!!
The Pacific Point card stock base and Aluminum Foil (yes, from my kitchen - it's a sure fire way to secure a Sharp and Shiny metal look) this card comes to life!
Foil is a delicate material - not used (often) for crafting... but cutting it with my Stampin' Trimmer was easy peasy!!  Running it through my Big Shot (Idea Book & Catalog) and the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (Spring Mini).  What a sharp and yet lacy look!
Ohhhh - seeing it come to life gives me the urge to rip open this wrapper... but I digress.
Running a Pacific Point card stock through the Big Shot and the Paper Doily Sizzlits L this sweet center is ideal and so pretty when layered over the Whisper White card stock. 

Heat Embossing in Silver this Curly Cute Greetings stamp set on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  The silver is ideal, my children call it magic, heat embossing is such a cool technique!  Embossing with the use of our Big Shot and the Heat Embossing is such fun! (two different ways to achieve texture and dimension)
I'm sooo tempted to nibble...
the thin layer of dark chocolate,
the white, crisp, cool taste of the peppermint...
Sigh.... OK back to my crafting...
BAM!
This cool treat is accented by our Brights Designer Buttons in Real Red and Rhinestone Basic Jewels (Idea Book & Catalog) adhesive backed bling and the Large Rhinestones (Spring Mini) continue the feel of the sparkle and shine.  The Real Red is a great way to break up the blue and silver theme.

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
