For this sweet card you will need:
Hello, Lovely stamp set (#130243)
Dictionary background stamp (#130351)
Whisper White card stock (#100730)
Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper (#131390)
Tea Lace Paper Doilies (#129399)
Wisteria Wonder ink (#126985)
Pearl Jewels (adhesive backed jewels) (#119247)
Elegant Butterfly punch (#127526)
Stampin' Dimensional adhesive (#104430)
SNAIL (Simple, Neat, Affordable In-Line adhesive) (#104332)
Created for a fun Private Class... all you have to do is:  Ink the background stamp and lay this folded card on top.. rubbing with my Bone Folder (#102300) you now have a beautiful, elegant card with a unique look. 
 
Adhere this Tea Lace paper doily on the stamped card with our SNAIL Adhesive.  It is thin and the pattern under will be visible through the doily... these doilies come with 24 - 4" round doilies to a pack!!  Layer these punched Afternoon Picnic butterflies over the doily and create dimension when you raise them with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive. Pop a Pearl on the center of these pretties... I like to use the end of my SNIPS to pick the adhesive backed pearls up, off it's sheet (150 pearls per sheet!!) and place right where I want them!
 
Stamping this 'You Make Me Happy' sentiment from the Hello, Lovely stamp set.  Cutting it out with our Paper Snips (as must have tool!! #130579) in Wisteria Wonder is a vintage but feminine look.  Using the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive keeps the look cohesive. 
Pull together a unique, vintage and feminine hand-stamped card that celebrates someone special in YOUR life!!
 
I'm so happy that you came by today!  Please remember to come often (I try to post daily) and bring your family and friends along for this fun crafting walk in life!!
 
Sending an actual hand-stamped card is a sure fire way to show you care!  Honoring those with this gift is a great way to cheer them.  You are SURE to see this pretty on their fridge or shelves for a long time... it's like sending a piece of yourself and art in one!  Who would YOU cheer?  Celebrate the everyday moments in life and make them extra special!

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
