It does, doesn't it??  Kindness does go a long way... just as this sentiment from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set says!  Here the Wild Wasabi ink resembles some grass on this sunshine card.
 
When stamping this bottom line - these two stamps can cause a squished look, if you aren't careful.  Stamp the sentiment first and then the polka dot line - this way if you are a little 'in' on the sentiment the polka dots can 'fall off' of the side.
Thanks to the Color Coach, this card is paired together to deliver a wow!  When I was torn on the colors to use, the Color Coach comes to the rescue (like a hero!).  With a  warm So Saffron card stock base to this card, the Whisper White allows the colors to do their magic.
 
Here this So Saffron inked sun is such fun!  It has an optical illusion of movement, kind of like those posters of the 80's-90's.  I love the butterflies but it was the cool use of this 'sun' that hooked me on this stamp set... I can't wait to play with this set!

When sunshine warms your life, much like kindness does, it's hard not to smile and feel blessed.  This quick hand-stamped card from our recent card making class was fun to create.  I liked how Delores pointed out that this card is ideal for her ministry cards for her church!  When you have perfectly paired inks that make the card pop, you don't need a ton of embellishments to make a card pretty.  Send a hand-stamped card to those who have blessed you and keep the circle of love going.

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
