 I love the elegance of Gold accents on a hand-crafted card!!  From Foil Sheets, the Gold 1/8" Ribbon and stamping the image from the Six-Sided Sampler using the Gold Encore ink pad - this card is elegant and surprisingly easy to achieve. 
  Tool Tip Tuesday:  Deliver WOW results when you Emboss the Foil Sheets!  Simply add them to the front of your card using SNAIL adhesive.  Keeping the card open, emboss the image using a Textured Embossing Folder of your choice and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  The adhesive will be strengthened as it will have the ultimate contact between the two surfaces and the Foil Sheets are thick enough to not be damaged by this technique.

Stamping this cute 'Hello, Sweet Friend' sentiment from the Six-Sided Sampler stamp set on the Very Vanilla card stock using the Gold Encore Metallic ink pad.  Punch the image out using the Hexagon Punch.  Apply the SNAIL adhesive to the back of the image.

Punch the embossed card front with the Hexagon Punch and lay the SNAIL'd piece into the punched shape - this will make for a snug fit - and a perfect window.  Tie on the Gold 1/8" Ribbon on the side of the punched card front. 
(I'm LOVING this metallic ribbon!)
A sweet greeting waits inside this hand-stamped card. I like the window aspect to this hand-crafted card, don't you??

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
