Sassy Baroque

When this New Beautifully Baroque stamp (#130895) inspires me to feel Spicy... well, to imagine a Spice Market in some exotic local, lol. 
 
This was from one of my recent classes and was a Favorite... what do YOU Think?? 
OK So I ADORE when items coordinate!!  Here our New Beautifully Baroque stamp set (#130895) coordinates with this Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder (#130917) that with our Big Shot (#113439) create this beautiful look. 

The Apothecary Accents Framelits (#127003) and the New (and quite fabulous) Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658) that is a strong magnet - holding the Framelits EXACTLY where you want them!!  Here the Framelits cut a similar Spicy Feel out of our stamped Beautifully Baroque image.
This Sassy Salutations stamp set is 25% OFF!!  (Until the End of June - lol.)  Click HERE to see our Promotions!!  I Love that the Sharp lines mimic the lines in the Baroque stamp. 

Embossing in Black adds contrast and yet stands up to the bold colors.  Our Heat Tool (#129053) and Black Powder (#109133) really lend to a quick and easy look.
Colored Jewels... Permanent Markers quickly allow for our adhesive-backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) create an Onyx like feel and coordinate with the embossing. 
(So easy to do for such a WOW impact!)
Stamping my Stamp in the LIGHTEST color and then ROCKING and ROLLING it in a darker color allows for this variegated look.  My Color Coach (#130120) is MY FAVORITE TOOL!!  I love so many of our tools but the many years of stamping and I STILL rely on the color suggestions made by my Color Coach!!  Here it paired up our Daffodil Delight (#126944) and Cherry Cobbler (#126925) for a WOW effect.

Want to see this Rock N Roll Technique??
See this (Older/one of my first - wow have my videos improved - lol) video of mine... really, any stamp (flowers, shapes, etc) can have a Rock N Roll  Technique 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
