Stamp this world rubber stamp from The Open Sea stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on the Very Vanilla card stock.  Using the Aqua Painter to add a vintage, watercolor look to this stunning stamp.  The Color Coach pairs this trio of colors for a WOW look.  Add the Marina Mist ink and Cajun Craze ink for a stunning trio that easily comes together with our Aqua Painter.  Soften the edges of the punched image (using our 2-1/2" Circle Punch) with the Stampin' Sponges in the Crumb Cake ink for an additional accent of vintage.

Our soldiers give up so much for our freedom.  Time with their family, friends, serving in dangerous areas, under fire, in terrible weather.. oh they are true heroes!  They don't have access to a store to send cards home.. and with family who serve, one who passed away on active duty... this is a huge spot in my heart.  Consider supporting our troops who are serving when you support For the Troops (www.ForTheTroops.org).
Cutting the card stock to create a 'Secret Pannel' will give plenty of room to write heartfelt greetings.  Stamping this ship from The Open Sea stamp set on the back of the World interactive/moving piece.  I adore the ease and WOW factor our Thinlit Cards deliver.

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
