I love cute and quick cards!!  Stampin' Write Markers work just like stamp pads but make it easy to stamp a multi-colored image and even color it in!!  Here using this adorable Storybook Friends kitty 'friends' stamp color the kitty in with the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker (from the Neutrals Stampin' Write Marker collection).  Coloring the 'friends' word with the Island Indigo Stampin' Write Marker (from the Regals Stampin' Write Marker). 
 
Coloring directly ON the stamp image is a great and easy way to have a multi-colored image.  Once you color with the markers... simply huff a breath on it and stamp on the 4" Whisper White card stock.  Storing and transporting the Stampin' Write Marker collections is easy as they are in these great clear boxes and stream lined. 
 
When you have an unusual sized card (like this 4" card) you deliver a cute card that stands above the rest!  Create a coordinating envelope!  YES!!  I LOVE my Envelope Punch Board and that it can quickly create 66 envelopes (boxes, file folders and more, too!).  Create this envelope that perfectly fits the 4" square card using the Envelope Punch Board and a spare piece of the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (we all have spare pretty paper about, don't we??).
Color the kitty in (leaving the tail tip, paws and chest fluff uncolored) with the Smoky Slate Stampin' Write Marker (from the Neutrals Stampin' Write Marker collection).  Using the colors that make up the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (from the Occasions 'Let's Celebrate' Mini catalog) is a cute and fun way to create a coordinated and colorful project!!

Accent this card with this pretty and fun Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper on the side of the card.  Using a 1-1/2" strip of pretty polka dots is an ideal way to add color and fun!!
OK so I LOVE the Silver and Gold Baker's Twine in the Occasions Mini!!  The only down-fall is the fact that it can unravel!!  So... shhh... myyyyy secret tip in using this stunning Silver and Gold Baker's Twine from the Occasion's "Let's Celebrate" Mini!!

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
