Happy Congratulations Graduation hand-stamped card

Today, in New York, my cousin's daughter graduated at the top of her class in Medical School!  Leah is a beauty inside and out.  She shines from within her faith, grace, spunk and beauty.  So I couldn't resist creating a card to celebrate this achievement with a fun shiny, 3D accent.  Celebrating a stunning lady who brightens the world is great with this shiny card.
Create this cool card with:
*Happy Congratulations stamp set (#133044w/133047c)
White card stock (#100730)
Basic Grey card stock (#121044)
Basic Grey ink pad (#126981)
Elegant Eggplant ink pad (#126969)
Island Indigo ink pad (#126986)
Regals Designer Series Paper Stack (#130139)
Crystal Effects (#101055)

Create a cool Chinese Lantern look with this unique and limited edition stamp set from the Occasions 'Let's Celebrate' Mini Catalog (it will NOT be in the new catalog - so grab it for your collection before it is gone!).  The Occasions Mini Catalog goes away June - so grab your goodies NOW!!
 
Pairing these colors of Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant and Basic Grey is fun to do and looks great thanks to the help of the Color Coach (#130118).  Framing this pretty stamped lantern with the Elegant Eggplant Designer Series Paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack (it reminds me of twinkling stars in the sky).
 
This card has a cool accent with the aide of our Crystal Effects liquid lacquer!  Simply 'outline' the image and fill it in with the fine tip on the Crystal Effects bottle.  Let it dry (10-15 minutes or so) and it will remain a 3D accent that shines and feels as smooth as glass!

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
