Bootiful Clouds

Clouds have a way of filling the air with expectancy.  You know the rain may fall, clearing the muck of the world away.  When that rain does drop, the world smells anew, clean and refreshed... I hope that this card expresses a similar feel.
 
Taking some fun elements and mixing it for a sweet card... Join Me for my upcoming Classes - In Person or On-Line!
With one of myyyy FAVORITE Stamp sets Bootiful Occasions (#126597) makes for some amazing cards!  I'm a boot-addict - lol - so it's a natural fit!
 
Here the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper (#130141) is the twist on a clouded background.. The Pool Party cardstock (#122924) coordinates perfectly with this pretty patterned paper.  The twists of the mosaic print with loops - it's like looking into a puffy sky.
The Color Coach (#130118) pairs Pool Party with Pumpkin Pie!  Here the Island Indigo ink (#126986) stamped on Whisper White card stock (#100730).  Color IN the Rain Boot with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker (#105115).

Rub the edges of the bootiful cardstock in the Island Indigo - this allows for the card to stand out against the patterned background, be coordinated and gives the illusion of a small layer.
Our Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439 ~ See how to get this for 1/2 OFF!) and the Retired Cloudy Day Embossing Folder (Occasions/Spring Mini) adds a wonderful cloudy texture!!  A sneaky way to add these sweet clouds... our Cupcake Builder punch (#121807) allows for the puffy cupcake top to be sweet fluffy clouds!

Make sure the clouds flow off of the page - it allows for a more realistic look while being appealing for the eye.

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
