You Made My Day 4 Leaf Clover Hand-Stamped Card

I was swamped with a busy week that ended in a wonderful but busy time in Big Bear!  So I came home and couldn't resist creating a cute card in nod to the St. Patrick's Day - and one that could be used all year long!  Who wouldn't be blessed to find a four leaf clover in their yard??  Go ahead, join me and create a hand-stamped card that fits a holiday but works all year long!!
Create this card with:
 Delightful Dozen Stamp Set (#128547 w / 122652 c)
Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (#132994)
Island Indigo ink (#126986)
Island Indigo card stock (#122923)
Garden Green card stock (#126940)
Rhinestone Jewels (#119246)
Fringe Scissors (#133325)
Hearts Collection Framelits (#125599)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)
Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658)
SNAIL Simple Neat Affordable In-Line adhesive (#104332)

Start with the Gumball Green card stock and Fringe Scissors (from the Occasions "Let's Celebrate" catalog).  Cutting this 'grass' to leave an edge, the Fringe Scissors are quick and super fun to play with!
 
Stamping this 'You made my day' sentiment from the Delightful Dozen stamp set in Island Idigo ink is a cute way to use this card all year long (we have a specific 'Happy St. Patrick's Day' greeting in the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set #128748w/#127802c).
 
Adding a dash of bling is easy and fun with the adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels (one sheet, 150 top quality rhinestones in three sizes for $4.95!).
 
Adhere this to the bottom of the Island Indigo card stock using the SNAIL Adhesive.  Tuck this beautiful Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper behind and adhere with the SNAIL Adhesive for a 'flowery field' look.
Create a cute 4 leaf clover with the Gumball Green card stock and the small heart from the Hearts Framelits Collection.  The Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform make for easy precision cutting!  Adding a dash of bling with the adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels!  This will coordinate with the sentiment while making for a pretty project!
 
The Stampin' Dimensional adhesive will raise the 4 Leaf Clover over the grass while securing the hearts into the 4 leaf clover!
Clovers are tucked right in with the grass (in my yard they are). This quick card really pulled together nicely!

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
