Create a cool stained-glass look for your hand-crafted card using the Vellum card stock.  Stamping the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad on the Vellum.  There is an issue, the Vellum is NOT Porous.. so using the Heat Tool to heat set the ink will allow a quick use - or you can allow it to air dry until the ink does not transfer.
Color the image of the Gentle Peace stamp set in with the Blendabilites Markers.  See More Projects using the Blenadbilites Markers HEREThey are ON SALE for ONE DAY ONLY.. so grab this amazing discount!

Layer the hand-stamped Vellum piece over a Whisper White card stock.  I used the Glue Dots to adhere the page to the card stock.  Covering the Glue Dots with the stunning 1/8" Metallic Gold Ribbon* for a stunning and rich accent.
This beautiful sentiment fits perfectly at the bottom of this card.  The Gold Metallic Encore ink pad* gives a rich accent to the colorful hand-stamped card.
Stamping the inside of the card in perfectly coordinated Old Olive ink makes for a beautiful saying.  I love how our products perfectly match for a great looking hand-crafted card, don't you??  This Photopolymer stamp set is so pretty!!  Grab YOURS on-line any time!

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
