Happy Birthday Flag hand-stamped card

Create a fun and trendy card with a few quick techniques!  Celebrate all that is trendy and fun with mixed patterns, flag made from repurposed items and fun color and texture!!  This fun card was created for a Private Class that Colleen had and inspired by a card she liked in our Idea Book and Catalog.  Let ME send You some cards!  Pick the card that this matches in the Idea Book, leave me a comment with the page number and I will send you 4 beautiful hand-stamped cards (including this one!).

Create this mulit colored Chevron embossed card with your Brayer.  Load the Brayer by rolling it in the Wild Wasabi ink.  I wanted a distressed version and didn't fully load the Brayer, using less ink for this look.  See this video on a similar card and let me know what you think, leave me a comment and I even do video tutorial requests, and don't forget to FOLLOW my YOUTUBE Channel!!
 
 
Pick a Pattern!  I ADORE the Designer Series Paper Stacks!!  I love that the collections of 12" double sided paper come in EVERY COLOR and with the cutest patterns!! 
 
Create the corners on this card with the Black polka dot page from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.  Punch two 1" squares using the 1" square punch and cut them in 1/2 with the Paper Snips.  Adhere to the front of this embossed Chevron with Stampin' Dimensional adhesive for a framed look.
 
Let ME bring the Party to YOU!!  Pick a Private Class and you can pick the style of the cards we make!  Have fun, plan a fun gathering while earning FREE craft products!!  Let's pick a date and the fun projects that you'd like to create!
Flags are ALL THE RAGE!  I love this classic Hostess Exclusive stamp set Banner Greetings to create these cute flags (with toothpicks!!).  Stamping this Banner Greeting with Jet Black Stazon Ink on the Wild Wazabi card stock allows for quick flag making!  Simply cut it out with Paper Snips for an easy greeting.  It's a fun and funky way to make your card stand out from the crowd!! 

Adhere the is flag to the card with the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive.  The Dimensionals will wrap around the toothpick and it's puffiness (it's a word, isn't it??) will adhere to the multiple layers of this embossed surface.

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
