I love the look of silver on the Night of Navy.  The Silver Encore ink pads are rich in color and stand up so well on this dark background.  Stamping the White Christmas tree scape image twice you can fill the page with the stunning scenic look that fills this background.  The Good Greetings FREE Stamp set is amazing!!  Christine is surely receiving this bonus FREE Gift for being a Hostess in a Private Class - SCORE!  Here one of the 19 FREE Sentiments are hand-stamped in the Silver Encore ink on the scene for an elegant look.
 
This White Christmas stamp set has many options - from cool reindeer, snowman, the polar bear and more!  Simply stamp the image you want in Night of Navy ink on the Whisper White card stock for a cute accent (it reminds me of a Cocoa Cola polar bears).
Tool Tip Tuesday:  Using the Stars Confetti boarder punch is easy - Simply punch the boarder, slide it until the pattern matches up (only silver stars show and thought the punched openings) and punch again - this will create a flowing and boarder and fun confetti as a bonus!  I like to stand when punching - with a punch like this, it's punching a bunch of shapes - this gives me leverage and helps me not pinch my hand - ouch!
 
Layer the Silver Glimmer Paper behind the punched boarder using the Glue Dots.  This sparkle is just stunning in the stamped night scene!  Layer this over the Smoky Slate card stock base using the Stampin' Dimensional adhesive for more depth to this hand-crafted Holiday Card.
Add the punched confetti to the inside of the card.  This is an easy and fun way to add interest and use up the stars - they are just too cool to waste!  Go retro and after you write a note, add the hand-punched confetti stars to the card and ship it - it will shower your loved ones with stars!
Variety - the class had options and women love options!!  Here Julia stamped a cute reindeer on a piece of Smoky Slate card stock for a fun variety.
This stamp set is so cute - it's fun to have a variety of looks and options in your crafting - great job Julia!

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
