The Color Coach is a MUST HAVE TOOL!!  This Low-Cost tool is PRICELESS!  I use it ALL of the time!  From my crafting to my decorating to my wardrobe... it's amazing.  It teaches you what colors to pair together for optimal results. 
 
The secret?  Using the colors in percentage of each other.  So the main color (Marina Mist) is bulk of the color you see.  then 50% or less the second color (here, the Early Espresso) and then the third color should be 50% of the last color - or like 25% of the first color (the Wild Wasabi here). 
Creating a pretty background on this Marina Mist card stock card with the feathers from the Fine Feathers stamp set and Early Espresso.  The feathers randomly fall off the page for a pretty look.
One of my FAVORITE Stamp sets on the Last Chance list is this Fine Feathers set.  I adore the elegance of it and the beauty of this peacock feather.  (I'm sad to see it go!)
 
Here, using the Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Marker to paint the stamp center.  Using the Marina Mist Stampin' Write Marker to color the exterior.  This Subtles Stampin' Write Marker Collection comes in a handy holder for easy storing and traveling (while helping me see which is missing).  They work the same as a Stamp Pad but with the ability to apply multiple colors to an image.  (The two tips to these markers allows for painting on a stamp, coloring an image in or journaling a project with ease.)
 
Using the Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Marker to color this Mother sentiment from the Amazing Family stamp set for a color coordinated project.

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
