World Card Making Day Card!

Join me as we travel the world... or just Celebrate World Card Making Day with this World Card!!  We had fun creating this unique card that will be shipped around the world... to Soldiers who are Serving Abroad.

My super hero Color Coach pairs up Smokey Slate with Calypso Coral and Soft Sky... as we created this spin on the fun World Map background stamp (#130345). Take a trip around world with me as we create this fun card!
Stamping the World Map background stamp with Smoky Slate ink (#131179) on Whisper White card stock (#100730).  Taking my Aqua Painter (#103954) and Calypso Coral ink (#126983) and Soft Sky ink (#131181).  Placing a darker line near the edges of places and 'pulling color' into the area for a vintage look is fun and easy to do! 
The Aqua Painter creates an image that is soft - much like a Water Color artist!! The Soft Sky ink really fades.. it will pop when layered over the Soft Sky card stock (#131181).
Because it's loose-goosey you can really highlight parts of this stamped image.  I'm pretty sure I colored in bodies of water to be like land, lol.  The fun thing is that no one will really look that intently at it.
Using my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine*(113439) and Big Shot Magnetic Platform* (#130658) with my Circles Collection Framelits* (#130911) to morph the map into a globe.
The Aqua Painter does have water in the handle.  The image takes on a moving look as the edges lift.  Our Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive (#104430) raises the image and allows for this free flowing look.
I am so glad you joined me on this excursion!  I try to post daily and hope that you'll come back and often!  Today is National World Card Making Day and I just LOVE Making CARDS!  See my MANY Classes with in-person and virtual options - waiting for YOU!!  I hope you enjoy this fun path in life, with me!!  (Join My TEAM... have the fun all of the time and for only $25 - for a limited time!)
 
Travel the path unexpected!!  Take what was one thing and transform it into something new and FUN!  Happy World Card Making Day!  I hope that this card, created for the event and sending out to Soldiers who are Serving Abroad, warms your heart.  Where will this card go?!?!  Who knows!!

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
