The ladies and I enjoyed this card from a recent class.  Taking a cut and folded Crumb Cake card stock, the Labels Collection Framelits, Big Shot and Magnetic Platform.  Leave area on the seam of the card and with the largest of the framelits, cut this card into a fun shape (I think it mimics an acorn - lol).
Using the Chocolate Chip Core'dination card stock and the Labels Collection Framelit that is two sizes smaller.  Cut this same shape so it mimics the card shape. 
 
Core'dination card stock has an inner monochromatic color that comes out when distressed, sanded, textured, embossed.  Here we used the Woodgrain embossing folder across this shaped piece.  Sanding the Top with our Stampin' Sanding System.  It revealed the Crumb Cake center and added a fun, soft texture to the card.
Using the Expressions Thinlits Dies (Thankful), Big Shot and Magnetic Platform this Champagne Glimmer Paper creates a stunning sentiment!  This is super quick.  I use the Paper-Piercing Tool (or my SNIPS) to push the sentiment out.  Adhere with liquid adhesive.  Here the Crystal Effects dries clear and quickly.
I'd been asked to demonstrate the Paper-Piercing.  Our Festive Paper-Piercing Pack has the Labels Collection.  Quickly with the use of our Piercing Mat and Tools you can create a unique and layered accent with these tools.  The Paper-Piercing Guides prevent making too big of a whole also while the Mat protects your table!
Shaped cards are extra special.  They are quick to create and look so great!  Go ahead, have fun creating some shapes!
This is a Neutral, soft, distressed card but the fun Champagne Glimmer 'Thankful' makes it POP!

During the busy season, take a moment to say how you feel (well, not the tired, harried feelings - lol).  I love to send heart-warming cards... this quick one makes it easy to get out during this busy season!!  Create a hand-stamped card (well, this doesn't even have a stamp - lol) and show that you care!  Have fun with the textures and shape of it, too!

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
