Serene Sympathy hand-stamped card

 
 
 
 
There are seasons in life where you have weddings, births, and deaths.  Lately we've been surrounded watching friends have major losses in their lives.  So creating a simple, elegant and natural hand-stamped card to say that our hearts and prayers are with them is easy to do (and soothing to my heart as I feel their pain).

With the Smoky Slate card stock base color the Serene Silhouette stamp with the Basic Grey and Real Red Stampin' Write Markers.  Huff on it and apply to the bottom corner of the card.
 
Stamp again on a sticky-note.  Here I stamped along the sticky side to get as much coverage as possible. 
Masking the stamped image with the loosely cut sticky note.
Stamping the Hardwood* background stamp over the masked image with Smoky Slate ink is a soft,  elegant and natural background.
 
Using the Petite Pair stamp set Sympathy stamp over the wood with the darker (monochromatic sister and paired together with the help of my Color Coach) Basic Grey. 
This stamp set has a great collection of paired stamps... the coordinating stamp inside for a complete card.
I'm so blessed that you came by today.  I try to post daily projects and tutorials so come and visit often.  Bring your friends and family along when you share me.
 
Seasons, like during the year, can be filled with sunshine, rain, wind, new growth and death.  It hurts my heart to see those I love suffer during their loss (and I remember that season so well).  Sending a hand-stamped card is a wonderful way to be their and showing that you care.

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
