I LOVE when stamps and punches coordinate - top that off with a similar pattern to add texture to a project and you have me giddy!  Add a fabulous collection of rich papers, coordinating colors and stunning images - you could knock me over with a feather!  I LOVE IT!!

Here the Park Lane Designer Series Paper is rich in color and pattern.  The pages are double sided so you can punch twice and flip it over for double the pleasure!
Adhere the awesome Park Lane Designer Series Paper to the card stock front with SNAIL adhesive.  Run the front of the card in the Honeycomb Embossing Folder in the Big Shot Die-Cutting/Embossing Machine.  This will make reinforce the adhesive due to the full contact. 

TOOL TIP TUESDAY:  In order to emboss a card front like this, you need to start with a cut and SCORED card stock.  This will give you a guide of where to place your embossing folder.
On a project with a full embossed front of your card expect the image to shrink your card front slightly.  This is to be expected because you are raising a good portion of it.  The embossing folders are a longer on one side - so I actually trim it down so that I can use it to feed either way.  Just don't cut it into the pattern and leave a small seam after the pattern.
Pattern, Texture, Rich Colors... oh, be still my heart.
Add a little something extra to the inside!  The Six Sided Sampler stamp set gives you many options.  Here the floral rubber stamped accent is a fun addition to this 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
