Blue Ribbon Birthday hand-stamped card

Giving my 5-1/2 year old the option on what she wanted to use for her little buddy's 6th birthday.. she picked this Blue Ribbon stamp set and wanted it in blue and red.  Whipping my Color Coach out, I paired this card for a sweet birthday hand-stamped card for a sweet boy!

Seeing my little princess jumping about with her friends is a great pick me up for this tired and cold-fighting momma!  Two of my kids grew up with this family's two kids.. it's funny seeing them go from toddlers and infants at our Mommy Play Groups to now...
Paired together with the aide of my Color Coach (#130118) a favorite tool of mine!  Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Very Vanilla create this great card!  Adding these adhesive backed Candy Dots for a fun accent reminds me of my own childhood love of those sweet treats!
Layered over this base of Tempting Turquoise card stock and this fun Real Red Chevron Patterned Brights Designer Series Paper Stack for a bold card.  Stamping this Ribbon on Very Vanilla in Real Red ink for a bright POP!  This color coordinated Tempting Turquoise stamped 'Happy Birthday' to the center is easy!  This stamp set coordinates with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch and the 2-3/8" Scallop Punch for ease in cutting/popping out!
 
Layered with the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive for stacking ease that POPS!

YOU should be given a Blue Ribbon for coming by!  I'm so happy you did.  I try to post daily and hope you will come by and often!  Bring your family and friends to join the fun.
 
Creating cards and projects with my kiddos is a great passion of mine. Here my sweet 5-1/2 year old have creative license in making this card for her buddy.  She pulled a cute Blue (and Red) Ribbon card together to celebrate him in style.  I hope you will take time to create hand-stamped paper crafts with those you love... it's fun while creating special memories.

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
