A Merry Dear in the Snow Hand Stamped Card

Snow covered hills... not found in my neck of the woods... but the serene feel of a setting such as this is one of the wonders of Winter.  Capturing this and the glitter of snow.. at just the right angle... is a fun way to celebrate a Merry Christmas.
 
What do you think?!?!  Leave me a comment and let me know!  Share this and me with your friends and family... Pin, Email, Facebook, Tweet, Google+ this and FOLLOW ME on these avenues, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn and more!
Create this card, quickly with:
Pool Party card stock (#122924)
Island Indigo card stock (#122923)
Island Indigo ink (#126986)
Whisper White card stock (#100730)
Silver Glimmer Paper (#124005)
Warmth and Wonder Hostess Stamp Set (#131883)Expressions Thinlits Dies (#132171 Holiday pg.36)
Delicate Designs Embossing Folders (#127023)
Adhesive backed Pearl Basic Jewels (#119247)
Paired together with the aide of a favorite tool of mine, the Color Coach (#130118), the Pool Party and Island Indigo are a monochromatic match!  Stamping this serene scene from the Warmth and Wonder Hostess set with the Island Indigo ink on the Pool Party card stock for a cool feel.
 
Emboss the top with the Delicate Details and Big Shot for a snow filled sky.  Add dashes of luxury with these 'snow puffs' of adhesive backed Pearl basic jewels.
Ripping this Whisper White card stock and layering, I can create a snow covered scene.  Adding this Merry from the Expressions Thinlits in Silver Glimmer Paper for a dash of sparkle to the setting.  Apply with the Multi Purpose glue (#110755) and allow to dry.
This scene pulls together for a WOW of grace and beauty.  I remember going to our prom and there was a deer that came to the window of where we were eating.  It's a majestic animal.. and this scene is one to take my breath away..
 
I'm glad you came by today!  I try to post daily and hope to see you often!  Please come and bring others with you!!
 
May the wonder of Winter and the Holiday Season give you a moment of awe.  You may see deer or not in your neck of the woods... but the beauty of nature and the season can inspire a wow moment or two.  Enjoy card making (and Join Me) and create with a dash of sparkle and luxury.

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
