Bright Butterfly

When my friend Stephany asked me to modify a current card I had with her... I loved the idea!
Here is a fun project we created and change for my Stampin' Up! Convention.  It sure is a great way to brighten the day of a friend!
Please let us know what you think with a comment!!
With a Pumpkin Pie card stock base (#105117), Basic Black card stock (#121045) primes this card for a fun look.
 
Heat emboss the Swallowtail (#129216) background stamp.  Prep the card stock with our Embossing Buddy (#103083) and stamp, with our Versa Mark pad (#102283) this image.  White embossing powder (#109132) creates a fun chalkboard image look.  Our Heat Tool (#129053) is so quiet and easy to use!
I toted these beauties to Utah and my beloved nieces, Claire and Meagan, jumped in to help me finish my swaps for convention!  Family time rocks!!
This clean image is very pretty.  CLICK HERE to see my original card, inspired by Vera Bradley.
Permanent Markers in this bright turquoise really POPS on this background!
Adding a fun bright orange to tie in the paper and remind me of one of my favorite butterflies, the Monarch. 

I can't wait for convention!
Thousands and thousands of women and some men will fill the Salt Lake City Convention Center as Stampin' Up! Celebrates their 25th Anniversary!
 
Join me as I will be posting pictures and more on my blog!  CLICK HERE to see my upcoming classes!  The 26th will be my Bringing Back Convention class... see what is new and have fun creating unique cards!
 
I look forward to seeing you back here and soon!

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
