Colorful Stained Glass Flower Garden hand-stamped card

Inspired by a fellow crafter, stamper and friend.. this stunning card came to life!  With rich, luscious colors, shine and a 'floating' feel - this card simulates a Stained Glass feel with no breaking to worry about.  Create this fun, easy and WOW hand-stamped card that you can deliver smiles and sunshine with.  See how I highlight the Blendabilites and Window Sheets for this Tool Tip Tuesday!!

OK so I LOVE our Window Sheets!!  They are PERFECT for my various crafts - from the windows in boxes or cards, Shaker Frames or as clear accents on cards, boxes and they work like a dream with the Big Shot!! 
 
Here I attempted to use the new Memento ink pad and Blendabilities directly on the Window Sheet (that I cut to 4"x6" card and scored - the Stampin' Trimmer has BOTH the Cutter and Score Blade for easy use on crafting).  Darn!!  The Memento ink is NOT like the Stazon Jet Black ink pad.  It doesn't dry on the Window Sheets - grrrr - lol.  So I had to go wipe off this Corner Garden background stamped image and rethink my card.
Stamping the image with the Memento ink pad (a must in using the new Blendabilities Markers) on Whisper White card stock.  Here I cut the cardstock down to 3-3/4"x5-1/2" and used the Blendabilites to color in the flowers and leaves.
 
When you purchase the Blendabilites Markers, now available, from me you receive an exclusive tutorial video and four fun crafted cards - using the Blendabilities - as BONUSES!! 
Insert the colored flower garden image into the folded Window Sheets using the Glue Dots.  Add a blank page to the back of the card/Window Sheet on the inside and you now have a Floating, Shiny, Colorful Stained Glass like card that is sure to WOW!!  The Floating Card is a FUN way to WOW while being super easy!  (Use the Envelope Punch Board #133774 to create a custom envelope to fit this 4"x6" card and deliver extra WOW's.)
I couldn't resist taking a photo on my front porch - placing this garden card out in nature to highlight the beauty and depth of the color and shine in this card.  The Blendabilites Markers create a depth and elegance to this garden and the Window Sheets makes for a high shine, cool 'floating' card that will stand above the rest!

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
