Very Vanilla card stock (#101650)
Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker (#119681)

Using the Merriest Christmas Santa stamp from the Ronald McDonald Charities 'Tag It' stamp set and the Stampin' Write Markers, color in the darkest color to the lightest.  Early Espresso colored the belt, boots and face.  Cherry Cobbler the outfit and Gumball Green the sentiment.  It's super easy with our high quality paint-brush, dual tipped markers...

Emboss the Northern Flurry embossing folder and Big Shot.  Add a dash of bling with the adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels.
POP This Santa and his Merriest Wishes out with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and our Chalk Talk framelits!
 
Add a small 'layer' with the aide of our Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker along the edges.  It ads contrast and helps it to stand apart from the background while being tied into the color scheme.  The Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive raises it up for an additional 'pop'. 
Celebrate the holidays while supporting those in need.  The Ronald McDonald House Charities supports families by providing homes during life-saving treatment.  Every Tag It stamp set sends a portion to support this amazing charity... and nothing is better than supporting others during the generous holiday season!
 
I'm so very blessed that you came by today.  I try to post daily and hope to see you back!  Bring your friends and family along for the fun.
 
I love how our Stampin' Write Markers can color this holiday season!  This quick technique really adds dimension and color to almost all stamps!  Go ahead, grab your Stampin' Write Markers (or order some from me) and add some colors to this Christmas Holiday and Support families in their darkest hour!

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
