Yoyo sparkle hand-stamped card

KISS - Keep It Simple Silly - as my Dad would tell me.  So this is that, a KISS card with Sparkle!!  Creating a fun and simple card is a great time-save while highlighting a special item on the card.  Having recently watched a special on The Smother's Brothers... I knew that I had to create a Yo-Yo card!!  So enjoy this KISS Yo-Yo card with some sparkle... I hope it sends you 'Around the World' (a yo-yo trick - lol).
Create this cute Yo-Yo KISS Card with:
Boys Will Be Boys stamp set (wood 134135/clear 134138)
Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack (133701)
Whisper White card stock (100730)
Hello Honey card stock (133678)
Hello Honey ink pad (133643)
Lost Lagoon ink pad (133644)
Rhinestone Jewels (119246)
Embossing Buddy (103083)
Iridescent Ice (101930)
Heat Tool (129053)
Blender Pens (102845)
1-3/4" Circle Punch (119850)
SNAIL (Simple, Neat, Affordable In-Line) adhesive (104332)
Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive (104430)

Add dashes of sparkle to this clean card with a few methods..   SNAIL the Moonlight Designer Series Paper to the Hello Honey card stock.  Apply the small and medium adhesive backed Rhinestone Jewels in random places to tie into the fun polka dot pattern.
Here prepare the surface of the Whisper White card stock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy across the surface.  Hand-Stamp the image of the YoYo from the Boys will be Boys stamp set in the Hello Honey ink pad.  QUICKLY Cover with the Iridescent Ice embossing powder for a clear, raised and sparkling addition.  Make sure to hold the Heat Tool at a 45* angle and heat one area until it raises, becoming shiny and sparkly.  Move it slowly as each area heats and sets.

The lines will now sparkle and be raised and slightly darker.  Squeeze the Hello Honey ink pad into the lid and use this excess palate of color with the Blender Pens.  Here you have real control to color and shadow but not a 'watercolor' look.

Punch the image out with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch to coordinate with the pretty Moonlight paper.  The off-center punch also lends toward the random polka-dot-ness.  Use the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive to create dimension and let this card raise above the rest!
Here, this 'Happy Birthday' from the Boys will be Boys stamp set looks sharp in the new Lost-Lagoon ink pad.  QUICKLY Apply the Iridescent Ice and Emboss with the Heat Tool for a dash of additional sparkle!!  Photographing sparkle is pretty challenging - lol... I hope that you get the impression that it's sparkly but not 'in your face'.

It isn't 'in your face' but rather a cool, classic KISS card that has a subtle but impactful sparkle!  My Daddy would have been proud (he often told me to KISS and loved The Smother's Brothers, lol).  This card, even with sparkle, is great for the young and old, male and female.  There is something lovely about highlighting an image on a clean card.  This hand-stamped simple but fun card is a fun way deliver some smile and memories (add a Yo-Yo gift delight the young and young at heart).

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
