Sparkles and Bubbles, Oh My!

Soda, Pop, Bubble, Sparkle... Drinking Soda (or Pop, depending on where you live - a nod to my family in Indiana, lol) as a kid I'd sip it fast as it tickled my nose... this vintage, bubbling, sparkle card is sure to sweeten someone's day!  It's calorie-free (yay!) and won't go bad - living a long time on your counter or fridge, continually adding sparkle and shine to your days!!

Flavored Pops were my Daddy's favorite.. he loved Grape and Orange soda (they were too sweet for my tastes, I prefer Sprite or Sassafras/Root Beer).  So when this Cycle Celebration stamp set (#130273) came to live with me... and the new Black and Orange Stampin' Glitter (#132206 Holiday Catalog pg. 20) made raise a toast to the old man and smile as I'm sure he's drinking an old fashioned fruit flavored soda and smiling down on us.
Punching this image was my plan... until I realized that I'd have to cut the image (ugh) so, instead, I fed the ends into this Decorative Label punch (#120907) for fancy edges without cutting off the image!
Create a fun Sparkle Stamped image that is oh-so sweet!  Stamp the soda-pop image with Versa Mark ink (#102283) and cover with Heat & Stick Powder (#100625) and after heating with the Heat Tool (#129053)  cover with the Orange Stampin' Glitter and heat set again.  Easy and sure to WOW when someone receives this sparkling card!
Picking up on the bubbles in this stamp, using the Big Shot Die-Cutting machine (#113439) and Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder (#117335) on this Whisper White card stock (#100730) for a bubbled effect.  Incorporating both sides of this Pumpkin Pie sheet of Polka Dot Parade (#126902) for two versions of fun 'bubbles'.
 
Adding randomly placed adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246) for 3D Sparkle Bubbles.  Small continued accents that tie in a theme is a great way to have a fun, funky and cohesive look.  It's so appealing to the eye (like eye-candy!).
Calorie-Free FUN!  Vintage, Clean, Elegance that Sparkles and Shines!  No matter what you call it, whether you drink it or not, soda-pop of old is sure to bring sweet new memories or memories of old.  I hope that this fizzy inspired card POPS into Your Day to Sweeten it!!  Have a Sparkling day - on me!  Thanks for coming by - I post daily and hope to see you often!

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
