All is Calm Winter Tree hand-stamped CardMaking tutorial

I love the visions of snowflakes as they fall to the ground... then again, this is usually on television because here, in Southern California, we don't see snow.  This stunning All is Calm Specialty Designer Paper gives me the feel and excitement of the beauty of snow filled winters while I enjoy my mild temperatures.  Celebrate, create and deliver some Very Merry winter wishes with this cool hand-stamped card.

When stunning papers, metallic accents, and classic rubber stamps come together to create a stunning winter scene that is cool and sure to delight.

Tool Tip Tuesday:  Get the best Embossed images when you prep the surface of the paper!  Simply using the Embossing Buddy and rub it across the surface will fill any nooks and crannies in and eliminate the oils on the surface of the paper.  This will allow the Embossing Powder to adhere to the Versa Mark inked image and nothing else.  An easy step that will allow for a better Heat Embossed image!

Take the 5-1/4"x4" piece of the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper and rub the surface using the Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the image of the tall Pine tree from the Lovely As A Tree rubber stamp set and Versa Mark ink on the front of this snowy paper.  Cover the image with Silver Embossing Powder, shaking off the excess.  Heat set using the Heat Tool for a hand-stamped, embossed silvery tree.
 
 
 
It's all about the accessories... take your hand-crafted card (or wardrobe) to the next level with you accessories.  Here thread the 1/8" Silver Ribbon into the All is Calm Snowflake.  Wrap it around the front of the card, allowing space to stamp the 'Very Merry' from the And Many More rubber stamp set in Lost Lagoon In-Color ink.  Jazz it up with the addition of the largest of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a pretty accent.  Layer over the Whisper White cardstock base for a clean and elegant look.

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
