This stamp Joyful Christmas poinsettia stamp set (#131802 Holiday pg. 27) has been in demand this year... and was requested for a Private Class that Christine and June held for a Neighborhood Party!  A fun, festive and elegant card that is quick to create!
Using Real Red card stock (#102482),
Silver Foil sheets (#132178 Holiday pg. 28),
Silver Embossing Powder (#109131),
Heat Tool (#129053),
adhesive backed Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246),
Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder (#116824)
you can create this card in a matter of minutes!
Embossing the Silver Foil, this creates a fun and elegant base for this Heat Embossed poinsettia.  Using my Paper Snips (#103579) to cut this holiday flower out it stands above using the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (#104430).
Using the adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels in two ways... coloring red with my permanent marker for one and then leaving in its original crystal look... which do you prefer??
Creating an elegant and fun card is a great way to prepare for the Holiday Season!  Sending rich, festive greetings that is sure to WOW all who receive it!  I have tried year after year to grow the poinsettia flower.. my Nanna had a knack for growing them... but haven't' had luck yet.  This card brings back memories of walks with my Pappa in the garden and seeing these beautiful red blooms come to life.

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
