Create a cute and easy card with a 3" card created from a sheet of 12" Whisper White card stock.  I love that one sheet of 12" card stock will give you 8 cards (great for when you aren't using it to scrapbook).
 
The Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper makes for a whimsical background with it's bright colors and soft feel.  Stamp this Daisy, Bee and Hello, Spring sentiment from the Springtime Hello stamp set (both of these are in the Occasions 'Let's Celebrate' catalog).  This Jet Black Stazon ink gives a sharp impression to these pretty stamps. 
 
Using the Aqua Painter in the Gumball Green In-Color (and soon to go away - so grab yours NOW) stamp pad and highlight the leaves and stem.  This watercolor look to this bold line stamp softens the stamp while holding the image true.  The Aqua Painter has a fine tip and can color great details like this. 
 
Color the bumble bee and daisy with Daffodil Delight ink from the stamp pad and then the centers with the Tangerine Tango stamp pad.  This creates a color coordinated and festive Spring feel.
I love our Taffeta Ribbon (really - all ribbon - much like paper I stock up, hoard and revel in it).  Here the Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon is sadly, retired!!  Wrapping this tailored ribbon around the stamped and colored image is easy with our Glue Dots!  They hold the ribbon to the back.  I like to do a separate bow so that I can work it into the perfect shape.  I then use another Glue Dot to adhere it to the front - this makes for perfect placement, too!  A delicate card like this with it's pretty delicate images looks great with a fine ribbon like this - perfectly balancing the card.

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
