Bright & Beautiful Sparkling hand-stamped CardMaking tutorial

Delight and WOW with a simple but interesting 3D, Pop-Up, Sparkling accent that is super easy to create on this hand-crafted Christmas card.  Created from a mistake - seriously, I'm the Queen of fixing boo-boo's on crafts, this card is a true delight!  See how a mistake can become a great creation with this pop-up, hand-stamped card.

Boo-Boo?  Yes... so when you stamp on our Vellum card stock with our ink pads you have a problem that I forgot about. The Vellum card stock is not porous so the dye-based ink will not dry on the surface for a very long time.. shoot!  Then I modified this card with a dash of sparkle for a WOW hand-crafted card. 
 
Tool Tip Tuesday:  Embossing powder will adhere to more than just Versa Mark ink!  Sprinkle the Island Indigo inked surface with the Iridescent Ice embossing powder and shake off the extra.    Heat Emboss with the Heat Tool.  This will absorb the wet ink and set up (if heated quickly) with a raised, sparkling surface!  BAM - a great 'fix' for this stamped Bright and Beautiful star!
 
Do this with Three Stars and die-cut using the Stars Framelits on the Magnetic Platform and Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Fold each in half where the embossed image is on the inside of the fold.  Using Fast Fuse adhesive to adhere the folded 'back' of the star and match up to a same fold of each of the three stars.  Adhere it to the Pool Party card stock base with the Fast Fuse Adhesive for a quick and wow 3D, pop-up, sparkling star accent (not bad for a mistake, right??).
This greeting from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set says it all!  I LOVE it and how it fits so well with this 3D, pop-up, hand-stamped, sparkling star.  Paired together with the aide of my Color Coach, the Island Indigo and Pool Party create a cool feel to this pretty hand-crafted card.

I love how beauty can come from a mistake.  That's life in some ways... taking what was intended, seeing it not work as you'd thought, and creating something amazing when you have to change it up.  This hand-crafted card was a mistake made great!  Create a 3-D card with this cool technique... this star will fold flat to mail and will pop-up or easily 'fluffed up' for a unique hand-stamped Christmas card!  What boo-boo can you look at anew and create into something cool?

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
