Ohhh the joy of the Blendabilites Markers and this Perfect Peacock stamp!!  Stamping the Perfect Peacock stamp with the Memento ink pad (a must in order to use the Blendabilites markers) on this Whisper White card stock gives me a stunning image!  Starting with the Costa Cabana Blendabilites I did a Ombre technique.  Color the lightest of the trip of markers on the eye of the feathers.  Color 1/2 way down each 'eye' with the Medium of the collection then the base of each 'eye' with the dark (the least used of the trios).
 
Do the same with the Old Olive on the Perfect Peacock - starting with the Lightest across the majority of the feathers/bird. Add the Medium 1/2 way down the feathers.  Tip and shadow the bottom of each feather with the Darkest of the trio.
 
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!! 
Oh - I'm soooo Happy!!  I ADORE all the COLOR!!  Adding dimension and the Ombre look is easy on the body of the Peacock, as well.  I actually decorate and have real peacock feathers in my home and on my inspiration wall.  I looked for the colors used by God for this card (it's so awesome to find inspiration in nature!!).
Creating a similar look with the coloring of the flowers for additional depth and beauty.  This method of Ombre coloring using the Blendabilites is quick, easy and fun!  I LOVE this stamp and these markers... color me ecstatic!!  Ombre color the eyes and beak, too, for a fun and elegant look.
Stamping this Trust God stamp set 'Each one of us is God's special work of art.' This perfectly ties into this stunning stamp set, is an ideal way to bless someone who is struggling or just-because.  
Stamping it on the Whisper White and using the Decorative Label Punch it will be a subtle mimicking of the lines in the greeting and peacock.  Place it with the Stampin' Dimensional Adhesive for additional depth.
 
Layer it all over a perfectly color coordinated Old Olive card for an elegant and easy hand-stamped 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
