Open Sea Thoughts

A simple and fun card that twists up the normal stamping process....
I wanted to create a neutral card and think that this card is just that!  See the Video below on this fun stamping technique, too!
Our The Open Sea stamp set (#123032) is a great vintage, masculine, neutral card.  I love it!  I'm a girl through and through but this vintage card with a twist was fun to make!
 
Our Chocolate Chip card stock (#102128) is the Base for this card.  and Stamping the Sea Ledger with Bleach gives a fun twist.  It has a variegation in color within the bleached stamp.
My COLOR COACH (#130118) is a favorite tool of mine.  It partnered Chocolate Chip with Crumb Cake and Marina Mist.  Here stamping the Anchor (with Bleach) for a cool seaside colored look on the Crumb Cake card stock (#120953).
 
Stamping this Thinking of You from the Sassy Salutations (#126707) in Marina Mist ink (#126962) for a cool marina feel.  Punch it out with our Decorative Label (120907) for a cool look that mimic's waves.
Layering the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper (#130140) for a cool natural and rustic look over that bleached stamp.  This wood look reminds me of an old boat wood look or nautical sign. 
 
Flip the Paper over....
For a COOL Map Look!  That body of water and vintage print really ties this card all together!
(Reminds me of a Ghost Ship, kind of like my favorite movies as a kid - Goonies!! lol)
I love the bleach stamping tied in with the ink, the cool and vintage colors...
doesn't she look ready to sail??

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
