What a fun card to create for my most recent class!  This interactive card is sure to make others WOW!  Did YOU Miss out on my class?  Don't worry!  CLICK HERE for a full line-up of upcoming classes and CLICK HERE to see about a Private Class!
Stamping this cute little deer from the Very Merry Tags stamp set (#130402 Holiday pg.33).  This set coordinates with punches for easy use!  Chocolate Chip ink (#126979) on Very Vanilla card stock (#101650) then pop out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch (#119850).

Using my Simply Scored Scoring Board/Tool (#122334) I scored this 12" x 6" piece of Season of Style Designer Series Paper (Holiday pg.23 #132340) at every 1/4" groove.  This board makes it so easy and fun to score a ton!  By scoring the full sheet, I then can cut off my 1" strips to create these Lollies/Rosettes.*  Using the 1/2" strip to add an accent piece to the card that will coordinate while having some texture from the Score!

*Adhere the Lolly/Rosette with Hot Glue for strength of hold.. ideal in keeping this an intact piece.
Using our Thinlits Dies, the Circle one creates this perfect moving/interactive base! (Circle Thinlit #133480) Utilizing the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine* (#113439) and Big Shot Magnetic Platform* (#130658) for precision cutting! 
See this Video on how to create this 'secret panel' for a wonderful 'present' like feel - they are going to LOVE opening this card!

 
This neutral Crumb Cake card stock (#120953) is perfect for a warm card that will be FUN to open!
This Thinlit die allows for interaction, fun and can be opened from many angles... just pick!  I like that flipping this on it's side is very much like opening a present!
Adding 1/4" strips of Cherry Cobbler card stock (#119865) ties in and accents the striped paper while lighting up this pretty red, shiny nose!

Simply take our adhesive backed Rhinestones Basic Jewels (#119246) and color them in with a red permanent marker... you now have a little whimsy to this cute card.

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
