Colorful kids

OK so I'm a Butterfly Girl... I've always loved them (and Peacocks, lol).  They are delicate but strong, colorful but untouchable... they can chose to light upon you but are hard to capture...
 
So when my daughter had a recent play date (to exchange the class pet for our summer care).  I allowed them to play while I created swaps for the upcoming convention... the girls wanted to jump in on the crafting fun!!
Sooooo I made them into Butterfly girls - lol!!
Our Swallowtail stamp (#129216) is absolutely stunning
(When Ashley reads this... I know that she isn't a butterfly girl...not everyone is...  but seriously - this is a stunning stamp.. but I digress... lol).
 
Stamping this image on our Embossing Buddy (#103083) powdered Pumpkin Pie card stock (#105117).  Versa Mark is a wonderful watermark stamp pad that is sticky.  It's ideal for grabbing embossing powders.  Here Iridescent Ice embossing powder melts with the aide of our Heat Tool (#129053) for a clear but sparkling image!
(It's OK - sigh with me - lol....sigh....)
Our Elegant Butterfly punch (#127526) is the ideal base for layering the Bitty Butterfly punch (#129406).  Here Daffodil Delight card stock (#119683) and the Daffodil Delight printed page from the Designer Series Paper Stack in the Brights family (#130134) pair perfectly!!
Beautiful Sparkles... for these sparkling little girls!!
Pops of color added to our adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) with a little coloring in with permanent markers (like a Sharpie, Bic, etc....) for colored jewels that are sure to brighten the day!
BAM! 
Brought to you by the hand of two cute 7 year olds!  Yeah Baby!! 
 It goes to show that if you've never stamped to stamp often.. great stamp, tools, papers and jewels can make you look amazing (easily!!) and wow others!!

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
