Vintage Metal

Vintage Metal... the words bring me back to Hair Metal Bands of the 80's.. lol.  When I think back to the fun of my youth.. lol.. I can't help but smile!
 
Living on a Prayer... Sweet Child O Mine... Here I Go Again.... Round and Round... Rock You Like a Hurricane... Pour Some Sugar on Me... Welcome to the Jungle... Rag Doll... Sister Christian, Rock of Ages.. Nobody's Fool, Shot in the Dark...  OK so I digress
(this trip down memory lane was head banging - lol).
 
Vintage Metal HERE is a fun card.  Created for a wonderful lady, Cindi, who purchased a basket for a favorite author of mine, Brenda Novak, who does a Diabetes Auction every year.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
Cindi likes Vintage... Soho Subway (#130140) Designer Series Paper is just that!  It has Summer Starfruit worked in so this Summer Starfruit card stock (#126839) is a warm base. 
Running the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439) and the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder (#130916) for a cool aged look to the Letter Press Printed Page. 
 
The new Gold Foil Sheets (#132622 Holiday Catalog pg.28) are so amazing...  here embossed with the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder so it really shines up the look to this cool texture.
Timeless Talk stamp set (#126607) is so elegant, fun and classic.  It brings me back to when my Nanna and Pappa played records during the holidays.... here stamped with a Versa Mark Pad (#102283), covered in Gold Embossing Powder (#109129, heat set for a stunning vintage shine thanks to our Heat Tool (#129053).
Adding this sweet song to the inside of the card is uber easy and fun.  (It makes me nod my head a little... lol).
Can you hear the music??
Feel the Love??
When you combine the old with the new, it's amazing what you can do!
(I'm a poet and didn't know it - lol.)
What memories does this bring back to YOU??  Leave me a comment and let me know. 
Don't forget to Pin and Share this with others...
 
Metallic, Vintage and Texture.. bring back wonderful memories.  When I think back to the fun of my youth.. lol.. I can't help but smile!

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
