Dream Baroque

My boy...
my son...
he has filled many a dream of mine...
to become a mother.
 
When he used his Awana's dollars to purchase me a Mother's Day gift.. I was blessed to see this 'dream' stamp and two sweet little silver colored metal bracelets.
 
He asks me often to use his stamp... so when I was creating a quick card, I whipped it out and boy, oh boy, was he happy to see it come to life.
Our Beautifully Baroque (#113895) is one of my favorite new stamps from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog. 
 
Prep the Pear Pizzazz card stock (#131201) with the Embossing Buddy (#103083) and is the secret to a clean embossed image.  Stamp the image with the Versa Mark pad (#102283) and our Iridescent Ice embossing powder (#101930) leaves an elegant and sparkling image!
My son wanted me to make this stand out - lol and our black ink stood out the best.  Adding our adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels to tie in the sentiment to the glittery image.
I couldn't dream of a better son to have!
With 5 girls.. this one boy is a strong and fun young man, he loves his family, has a strong faith and takes his job as brother very, very seriously!

He sure does love on his momma, too.
Big hugs and kisses, snuggles (he's my Snuggle Lion).
 
So as a Momma who is Proud and deeply in-love with my kids.... especially one who purchases me what is the perfect gift... in his eyes... a stamp for his stamp loving momma. (Awww, what a good boy, eh?)
 
I hope that your dreams come true! 
Have a Sparkling day!

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
