Praying hands hand-stamped card

Much like a wedding, this card has a little something old with something new (and something blue!).  Today we celebrated my cousin's son who took his first Catholic Communion.  This cool kid made a stand today in his faith and it was a party for us family.  So using this cool Retired 'Praying Hands' solo stamp, the soon to retire Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper and the new Skin Tone Blendabilites for a card that celebrates this momentous event in his life.

Retired doesn't mean tired!  Our stamps are timeless, classic and beautiful!  I love this solo stamp that came out years ago - and hoard it (I've had large cash offers for it - but can't imagine not having it in my collection!!).  See our soon-to-retire collection of stamps, papers, inks, accessories and more.  They are a great way to stock up on exclusive, no longer available to order stamps and supplies that will make your projects shine!
 
In order to use the new Blendabilites markers you need to use the new Memento ink pad.  Stamp this Praying Hands stamp on Whisper White card stock. 
 
Using the Skin Tone to color in the hands.  A lighter for the nails.  Adding the darker for shadow.  This collection of makers allows for shadow and depth while looking good!!
Layered over the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper these Praying Hands look so good.  Adding a cool element that is also masculine (this is one cool dude) with our Basic Metal Buttons.
 
Stamp the 'God Bless You' from the Trust God with Basic Grey ink on the Epic Day Designer Series Paper.
Here Luca is surrounded by his mom and some of my kiddos.  What a handsome Italian boy.. I love seeing my kids and their cousins growing up together!!
Add some grunge to the edges of this stamped Praying Hands with our Sponge Daubers and the Basic Grey ink on the edges.  It also ties into the aged looking Epic Day Designer Paper.  This cool accent is a great way to add a distressed element to 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
