Crosses of Hope

Saying Good-Bye is hard to do...
With Colors, Stamps and Tools going away at the end of May, I wanted to embrace some of my beloveds that will be retiring... this card does just that!
Our Riding Hood Red will be retiring this year... as will our Baja Breeze! 
 Using our Color Coach (#120148), it paired up our Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, and So Saffron making this card come to life.  This Crosses of Hope stamp set (#117136) covers loss, encouragement, hope and grace for life and it's many occasions! 
 
This retiring Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embosssing Folder (#119227)  and Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (#113439) is soooo very lovely and creates a great base on our Riding Hood Red card stock (#111348).

Layering our Baja Breeze card stock (#111352) and So Saffron card stock (#105118) over this in perfect layers when Labels Collection Framelits (#125598) are used!  Stamping this stunning floral cross in Riding Hood Red ink (#126968) on the So Saffron card stock makes it easy to place the label framelit right where I want it while making the image POP
Layered and raised for dimension with the aide of our Stampin' Dimensional adhesive(#104430).

This quick card is a delight while pulling together to send off these great colors, texture and stamps!!
What an elegant and meaningful stamp set to own!  Crosses of Hope is sure to live long in my retired stamp shelves!
DON'T LOSE HOPE!  You can still grab YOUR Stamps and accessories.. but they are going quickly, so nab yours and quickly!
Say 'Good-Bye' but then Add these awesome goodies to YOUR collection, before they are gone!
Let me know what is YOUR Favorite item that is retiring, I may make a card with that very item!  Leave me a comment and I'll see what I can do...

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
