Blooming birthday hand-stamped card

Today our family gathered to celebrate my Mother-In-Law's 75th birthday.  With my husband, his two sisters and most of our kids we enjoyed BBQ (my hubby barbequed the Tri-Tip and Chicken in 109* heat!!), homemade chocolate cake and quality family time.  Creating a hand-stamped birthday card that embodies my Mother-In-Law's love of gardening was easy with this new Park Lane Designer Series Paper and Blooming with Kindness stamp set to give an elegant birthday card.
Create this hand-stamped birthday card with:
Blooming with Kindness stamp set (wood 131961/clear 126422)
*Park Lane Designer Series Paper (133694)
Whisper White card stock (100730)

My in-laws have the most lush garden!  With a massive food area and flowers worked in - they grow enough food to feed a small town and make the tables pretty!  I don't have their mad skills (or time).  I love when my father-in-law picks flowers for his wife and in small Pellegrino water bottles as vases, brings the pretty inside.  My Mother-In-Law can grow the most lush and colorful flowers (and while they live in the desert)!!  So this card is classic and inspired by her green thumb.
 
This flower from the Blooming with Kindness stamp set warms the corner of this Whisper White card stock thanks to the Calypso Coral ink.  The sentiment with the Old Olive ink.  Pulling colors from the inspirational Park Lane Designer Series Paper gives my card a warm and elegant look.
Inspired by this pretty patterned paper, the Park Lane Designer Series Paper WOWs with color and style!!

I debated creating a card that had flowers and a '75' on it for my Mother-in-Law's birthday but color, nature and warmth are more her style.  This card is personalized right to Maria's style and that's a fun way to show that you care!  Create a hand-stamped card that celebrates that special person and show that you care.  Our stamps, paper and inks all perfectly coordinate so that I look amazing and it was fun while easy to create!  (Perfect for a mom of 6 - lol.)  So as flowers will die, this card will live on and delight for a long time.

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
