Bright Thoughts of You

When days are dull,
the skies are grey,
life is hard and seems dark....
I can't resist a Bright, Bold and Cheery Card!
With a Rich Razzleberry (#115316) card stock this card is sure to brighten ANYONE's day!  Our Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper (#125409) is a fun and funky way to brighten it up! 
Wrapping this 4" x 4" in our 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon in Daffodil Delight (#125583) adds to the sunshine feel of this card.
Layering the Card Stock, Designer Series Paper and Ribbon before running it through the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#117335) and Big Shot (#113439) for this fun polka dot embossed element.
 
Giving our Mixed Bunch flower stamp (125537) a fun Rock and Roll inked look is easy!  (See the technique below in a video I'd done a while back.)  Stamp the whole flower in Daffodil Delight ink (#126944).  Roll the edges in Rich Razzelberry ink (#126950) for this variegated look.  POP it out with our coordinated Blossom Punch (#125603) for a quick die cut!
POPS of Color, Texture, there is nothing Dull about This Card!  Who would YOU give this to? 
(Leave me a comment and let me know!)
Button this up with our Brights Designer Buttons (#119747).  They coordinate perfectly with our card stocks, inks and ribbons!
Sending Loving Thoughts (#125845) is easier than ever with this elegant and lovely stamp set!  Stamping it with our Rich Razzelberry ink (#126950) on our Whisper White card stock (#100730) for a sharp look.
Color is Back, baby!!
I LOVE it!  I love adding a zing to life, cheering my day with POPS of Bright, Bold Color! 
When the day is Grey (either by weather, smoke coverage or life's rough treatment...) it's easier than ever to Brighten with a card like this.

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
