With a blank slate like Whisper White card stock simple images can really pop.  This new Happy Watercolor stamp set from the New Occasions Mini Catalog is just lovely.  Stamp this Snapdragon stem with Stazon Jet Black ink for a clean image.  (Here I created a cute 3"x3" card - big impact but little size is ideal to jot a few lines in gratitude.)
 
Color in the beautiful and delicate blossoms with a dash of Pumpkin Pie to the center of the flower.  Our Stampin' Write Markers make it easy to color with the two tips!  Shade in with the brush side for a soft look.
 
Color the outside of the blossoms with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker.  This two-toned flower is lovely, isn't it?  Using the pen tip to the stem so that the color stays within the lines.
 
Watercolor look to this Happy Watercolor stamp set with the Stampin' Write Markers while securing strong colors.
 
Using the brush side to color the 'Thank You' sentiment from this stamp set and apply a coordinating greeting to this cute card!
You light up my day with your coming by!  Please come back and often (get MORE of Gettin' Crafty Stampin' when you join my Exclusive Mailing List).  I try to post projects and tutorials daily - bring your friends and family along for the ride and Share Me!
 
Send a Hand-Stamped card and Celebrate SPRING while sending some cheer - even in the midst of snow-filled winter (well, it isn't snowing here is So. California - we are a cozy 76* today - sigh).  Missing family and friends who live in the blustery cold of the mid-west, east coast and Canada... I can't wait to send them some cheer and a dash of SPRING!

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
