Stamping this beautiful daffodil from the Blessed Easter stamp with Jet Black Stazon ink on the gift bag.  Here inking just the flower and not the Easter sentiment is a great way to allow this stamp to be used for so many reasons!*
 
*If you find that it's hard to ink just the area you want, try Stampin' Write Markers directly to the stamp or Mask the area you don't want - ink it and apply a scrap paper or sticky note over the area you don't want to show.
 
Color the Daffodil leaves with the Gumball Green Stampin' Write Marker from the 2012-14 Collection for a beautiful jewel colored green.
 
Accent the daffodil with the Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write Marker from the Brights Stampin' Write Marker Collection. The yellow is similar to our Daffodil Delight and this combination really POPS!
Such a stunning stamp, I adore the Easter sentiment but using this for many reasons makes me happy!  It's a must for all crafters!
Having stamped the flower above the bottom, this Gumball Green card stock grass really makes this project!  With 2" strip of Gumball Green from the 2012-14 In Color collection cut 3/4" down with the Fringe Scissors.  They are super strong, easy to use and make great fringe (yay!). 
 
Apply to the bottom of the gift bag with Hot Glue as most other adhesives don't hold up to use - especially with a gift bag that can be re-used over and over, delivering smiles!!
This simple embellishment really wows with the movement and texture while being color coordinated!
This gift bag was created to hold a friend's recent order.  It's great to give an order wrapped in a gift!!
This sweet punch-art wrapped lollipop was fun and easy to create!  CLICK HERE to see the tutorial.
 
Here with Baker's Twine, tied to the top of this handle, this gift is extra sweet now (while this lollipop doesn't get lost in the package).  Here is a punched 'thank you' that says so much while being pretty!

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
