Mixed Garden

I am having FUN with this New Bright and Bold Patterned Paper... Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper (#129310) for a different spin on this paper, design and card... what do you think??
Leave me a comment and let me know!!
A NEW Color in our Subtles Collection, Pear Pizzazz (#131201) makes a strong, natural base.  I was inspired by my MDS Laptop Sleeve... see my inspiration below!
This fun sleeve is a mixture of patterns and natural style.. I LOVE this pretty mix of patterns... and I couldn't resist taking our New Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper (#129310) and creating something similar. 
My Big Shot (#113439), Our Secret Garden Framelits (#129372) allow for these shapes - they, too, coordinate with our Secret Garden stamp set (#131940)!!  I love when coordination is so easy!
Pops of Color, Pattern, Bling... I really like how it came all together!!
Loving Thoughts (#125845) come with this card... this Loving Thoughts stamp set is one of my favorite sets!  Embossing with our Heat Tool/Gun (#129053) and our White Embossing powder (#109132) the sentiment is sweet.  On the Pear Pizzazz Printed page - it was cute but white on this background disappeared a little.  I then took our Stampin' Sponge (#101610) and our Melon Mambo ink (#126948) the words now pop while the paper's patter still peeks through!
(Say that 5x fast, I dare you - lol.)
All of these patterns (and more) from the same paper packet?!?!  YES!!  Our Double Sided Designer Series Paper really allows for a ton of crafting!! 
Add wealth and sparkle with our adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246)... the three strips of connected rhinestones really allow for a fun 'tennis bracelet' feel while the separate ones are perfect solo accents, like in these flowers!

Accenting the flowers with a pop of color... our Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (#118309) has these cute tiny trio of punches... the little scalloped/flower punch and our Melon Mambo (#115320), Daffodil Delight (#119683) and Island Indigo (#122923) card stocks add a dimension and break up of the patterns!
Wonderful You is how anyone who receives this card will feel!!  Send some love and long-lasting cheer with a home-made but awesome-looking card!

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
