Take a twist on the norm.  Celebrate nature and its many splendors with pretty natural stamps... and then put a Rock Star Spin on it when you change it up!!
 
What do you think?!?  Leave me a comment and let me know.  Share the fun and me... Pin, Email, Facebook, Tweet, Google+ this... and me... and Follow Me on these and YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn and more, too!
Pleasant Poppies (#129499) paired together with Perfect Plum, Rose Red and Marina Mist create this great look... and all thanks to my Color Coach (#130118) for this combo!!
I'm having a water color moment with this card.. grabbing my Aqua Painter (#103954) and my Perfect Plum ink (#126963), Rose Red ink (#126954) and Marina Mist ink (#126962).  Squeeze the lid on these ink pads when the pad is closed.  A dollop of ink will remain in the lid and becomes a wonderful palate of ink to use when water coloring this image.
 
Start with the Rose Red in the centers of these flowers.  Then add the Marina Mist, building up from the center... finishing the edges with Perfect Plum ink and highlighting the stripes...
Layering the Perfect Plum card stock (#101889) with the accent colors... Rose Red card stock (#102544) frames the Perfect Plumb inked 'Thinking of You' greeting from the Sweet Essentials stamp set (#126457) stamped on the Mariana Mist card stock (#119682) for a cohesive look.
Stamp and color the inside!  Using Very Vanilla card stock (#101650) to create an inner liner (so that the Soldiers can easily write inside this darker colored card).  Adding the color to the inside goes to show that you care enough... while making for a WOW card!
The great thing with Water Coloring is that each project is an original... each looks different.. can be soft or more bold...
Inside or out... this card is sure to POP and lift some one's day!!  Did you miss out on this class?!?!  YOU ARE INVITED!!  Join any (or all) of my future classes!!  CLICK HERE to see the fun line-up of classes, Holiday Cards, Clubs and more... and Join In on the FUN!!

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
