Believe in Color

Fill Your Life and the Lives of Others with COLOR!!
This FUN but Colorful Technique is sure to WOW!!
Like a snowflake, each is original!
This Real Red card stock (#102482) provides a bold base for this card.  This BRIGHT Summer Smooches*(#125409) Designer Series Paper coordinates and this Daffodil Delight pattern is a perfect POP on top of the card!
THIS Tie-Died Multi hued flower from Just Believe* (#120453) is easy and fun to create!!  Ink the stamp in the lightest color, so using Daffodil Delight ink (#126944) ink the stamp image.  Using color coordinating Stampin' Write Markers (#119806) that match the colors in the Summer Smooches DSP... we THUMP them to create this fun and funky look!
Just Believe is a stunning stamp set!  Sure to brighten another's day, it's a must for any crafting collection and is RETIRING*!!  Click HERE to see the amazing collection of stunning stamps, awesome tools and accessories that are going to be retiring at the end of May!  Save up to 65% too!  See the colors that are retiring and coming anew, too!!
With the help of our Apothecary Accents Framelits (#127003) and my Big Shot (#113439) this frame comes to life out of our Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper*. 
Layering it above the Thumped Stamped Image reminded my husband of our Stained Glass Window - awww. 
Tie it up with our Real Red and White trim 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon is a fun way to add an embellishment and flair.
Button it up with our Brights Designer Button collection (#119747).  Adding the adhesive-backed Rhinestone Basic Jewel (#119246) to the button is a fun dash of bling!
 Life is Colorful ~ Celebrate it!

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
