Musical Pups

My son loves this amazing guitar teacher.. she loves teaching at our school as well as adding guitar lessons on the side.
 
Sal comes home and after every lesson he talks about how cute her dogs are... how she's rescued them from dangerous situations and how fun these pups are - how they like the music he plays...
He then asked me to help him create a card for his teacher with a guitar, dogs and music... well, I don't have a guitar stamp but puppies, music... I have!
Check out what we created and let us know what you think with a comment!
I could just see her beagles running amuck on a sheet of music so this is what we created!  With Basic Black card stock (#121045) as the base, the Modern Medley (#126926) Designer Series Paper is framed on the front, set in 1/8" in on all four sides.
Prep your Vellum Cardstock (#101856) with the Embossing Buddy (#103083) before you stamp this cute Storybook Friend (#126737).  Having stamped the same image on a sticky-note and cut it out - it can now cover and 'mask' so that there are two pups running about.  stamp so that one is behind the other - chasing and having fun!
Cover with the Black Embossing Powder (#109133) and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129053) for this sharp image of two dogs having fun!
FLIP the page over and color from behind using our Stampin' Write Markers (Neutrals Collection #131261) to mimic the coloring of her beagles.  With black bodies, brow spots, white tummies.. painting from behind still allows the black embossed image to shine on the black colored in body.
Aren't they just too cute?  Two Pups having too much fun!
Layer this paper over the Modern Medley page that is adhered on the Black card stock using our Glue Dots (#103683). They are now having fun running among the musical notes.
My boy loves his lessons, his amazing teacher and her sweet dogs.  I love that he wanted to create her a card to thank her for her love and making it so fun!
(Maybe I'm not failing as a mom, after all - lol).
Here he is enjoying his practice time, getting ready to make her proud!

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
